TODAY'S THOUGHT

If we who follow Jesus are anything at all, we are people of good news. What spectacular irony and victory for the prince of darkness if he could get us in droves to believe there only ever be bad news this side of heaven. Let not our hearts grow numb. Jesus is alive and rules!

An officer-involved shooting in Devils Lake has left one person dead....

     DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - An officer-involved shooting in Devils Lake has left one person dead. WDAY-TV reports officers responded to a call about a suspicious person Thursday. Police say the suspect died after a struggle ended with an officer's gun being fired. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the case and the officer is on paid administrative leave. Authorities haven't released the identities of the officer or the person who died.

     LEONARD, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota authorities say two drivers have been injured after a Fed Ex van driver rear-ended a semi-truck stopped at railroad tracks near Leonard. The Highway Patrol says the accident happened about 9 a.m. Thursday on Highway 46. The patrol says the van driver was looking at a map and didn't realize the semi had stopped. The van was extensively damaged in the collision, and officials say both drivers were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Authorities cited the van driver for distracted driving.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A group that wants to change the North Dakota Constitution to explicitly bar non-U.S. citizens from voting says it has the signatures to get on the ballot.
 
     Gary Emineth, a state Senate candidate in Bismarck, submitted more than 35,000 signatures to the secretary of state's office today for review. The amendment's supporters needed almost 27,000 signatures from voters to put the measure on the November ballot.
 
     The state constitution already defines a voter as a U.S. citizen, but Emineth says the wording is "ambiguous" and another section is proposed for clarity. Emineth says the Virginia-based Liberty Initiative Fund gave $210,000 toward the signature-gathering effort. Emineth says he personally contributed $43,000 toward the effort.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's largest farm group is pushing for adjustments to crop insurance payments to protect farmers from international trade retaliations.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the U.S. House and Senate versions of a new Farm Bill are heading to conference committee. The North Dakota Farmers Union sees the bill as an opportunity to raise reference prices for price loss coverage crop insurance plans. The insurance plan provides payments when a commodity's marketing year average price falls below the reference price set by Congress in the 2014 Farm Bill.
 
     Farmers are facing an unfriendly market as negotiations for new agreements with U.S. trade partners continue to flounder. Canada announced new tariffs earlier this week and China imposed $34 billion in retaliatory tariffs on U.S. products Friday. The Communist Party newspaper People's Daily said tariffs were imposed on a list of goods issued last month that included soybeans, pork and electric vehicles. U.S. soybean farmers have been particularly concerned, and the price of soybeans has plunged 17 percent over the past month on tariff fears.
