Christ's merits are given to us so that we might be reckoned righteous by our trust in the merits of Christ when we believe in him, as though we had merits of our own.

The North Dakota Highway patrol says a 40-year-old New Town woman has died in a two-vehicle collision near Parshall....

     PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway patrol says a 40-year-old New Town woman has died in a two-vehicle collision near Parshall. Authorities say the woman was driving west on North Dakota Highway 23 on Saturday when she lost control of her Toyota Echo and spun into the eastbound lane. A Ford Ranger pickup was unable to avoid the car and struck it head-on. The woman died at the scene. Her name has not been released. The 61-year-old man who was driving the pickup was injured and taken to a Minot hospital.


    MINOT, ND - Construction work will begin this week on the first phases of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP). Both the Phase MI-1 contractor, Park Construction, and Phases MI-2 and MI-3 contractor, Wagner Construction, say they will begin mobilizing equipment, contractors and supplies, and coordinating with local and City of Minot utilities starting this week. They are also planning to begin tree removal and clearing & grubbing within their construction zone.

    "We held our pre-construction meetings the first of March and I am pleased with the early coordination efforts and the eagerness of the contractors to get started," said David Ashley, chairman of the Souris River Joint Board. "This is just the beginning of a massive project, with the end goal of protecting thousands of Souris Basin residents from experiencing the same damage that occurred along the Souris River in 2011. It feels great to be starting the construction phase of these first three projects."

    Phase MI-1 Fourth Avenue is a six block stretch of levees, floodwalls, a new sanitary lift station, and a major pump station from just west of Broadway to the east side of Third Street NE.

    Phase MI-2 Napa Valley runs from the Highway 83 Bypass to 16th Street SW and will include levees, a road closure structure, and two storm water pump stations.

    Phase MI-3 Forest Road provides protection on the north side of the river between 16th Street SW and the end of 3rd Ave SW, near the intersection of the Canadian Pacific Railroad and will primarily feature earthen levees.

    Safety is always a priority, so the Souris River Joint Board and its' contractors ask that individuals remain vigilant near the construction zones. Construction areas will be fenced, requiring that the public keep out of these areas. Additionally, there will be significant heavy equipment working in the construction areas and the roadways surrounding them, so caution should be used around these construction zones.

    The total cost for Phases MI-1, MI-2 and MI-3 is estimated to be $99.4 million. The cost share on these three phases is being done on a 65/35 split, with 65 percent coming from the state and 35 percent from local funds. The primary source for local funding is from a portion of the Minot city sales tax allocated to flood protection.

    Construction on all three phases is scheduled to be completed in 2020.


     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - More snowfall over the past month prompted officials to increase the forecast for runoff in the Missouri River this spring. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is now predicting the amount of water that will flow into the river will be about 115 percent of normal this year. But nearly all the space reserved for floodwaters in the seven reservoirs along the river is free at this point of the year. The river forecast could still change this spring. The mountain snowpack in the region usually peaks in mid-April.

    The navigation season is expected to open in mid-March, and there should be enough water in the river to allow full service navigation through at least the first half of the year.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Three North Dakota Democratic hopefuls for Congress are all touting an independent image as a centerpiece of their campaigns. Jamestown state Sen. John Grabinger, along with former state lawmakers Mac Schneider of Grand Forks and Ben Hanson of Fargo, will seek the Democratic endorsement for U.S. House at the party convention next weekend in Grand Forks.

    The Democrats are taking a page from Sen. Heidi Heitkamp by pledging to buck their own party leaders if they veer too far from the state's right-leaning electorate. And they are treading a thin line when it comes to criticizing President Donald Trump, who remains popular in North Dakota. University of North Dakota political science professor Mark Jendrysik says campaigning against Trump "is not going to work in North Dakota."


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Funeral services are scheduled for former North Dakota Gov. George Sinner. Sinner died Friday at age 89. The Democrat served as governor from 1985 through 1992. A funeral Mass will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at Nativity Church of Fargo. A prayer service will be held Thursday from 7-9 p.m., also at the church.

    Sinner served in the Legislature in the 1960s and early '80s before defeating Republican incumbent Allen Olson for governor in 1984. His administration spanned one of the roughest periods in North Dakota's economy. The Fargo native grew up in nearby Casselton and graduated from St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, with a bachelor's degree in philosophy. A private burial is planned in Casselton.
