TODAY'S THOUGHT

The widow and the orphan are too significant in the kingdom of God just to be pitied. They are not to be pitied. They are to be empowered.

U.S. and Canadian officials are negotiating an end to a 16-year legal battle over a Missouri River water project......

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - U.S. and Canadian officials are negotiating an end to a 16-year legal battle over a Missouri River water project in North Dakota. The $244 million Northwest Area Water Supply project aims to bring Missouri River water to tens of thousands of people in northwestern North Dakota. Manitoba sued in 2002 over worries the project will harm the Hudson Bay Basin.
 
     The province lost its court battle last fall but appealed. Court documents show Manitoba and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation are near a settlement. Any settlement won't resolve Missouri's claim that NAWS will deplete the Missouri River water it needs. A judge ruled the state couldn't sue the federal government, but the state has appealed and says it has no plans to settle. North Dakota officials say they aren't worried about Missouri's claim.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of Minot man who admitted killing his brother two years ago. The Minot Daily News reports that 28-year-old Adolfo Contreras-Castillo appealed to the Supreme Court and asked to withdraw his guilty plea on the basis that his defense attorney did not adequately inform him regarding the implications a guilty plea would have to his immigration status. The state argued that Contreras-Castillo was told at his initial appearance that a guilty plea could result in deportation.
 
     Contreras-Castillo pleaded guilty in August 2016 to killing 28-year-old Ignacio Contreras-Castillo during an argument in March of that year. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman has been sentenced to serve six months in jail and three years on supervised probation for stalking her ex-husband's girlfriend last year. The Minot Daily News reports 49-year-old Kathy Schuler also was ordered to have a mental health evaluation and to have no contact with the woman.
 
     Schuler was accused of creating fake and disparaging online profiles of the woman, using photos lifted from her Facebook page. Schuler's defense lawyer had previously tried to argue that her actions were protected free speech, but a judge rejected that argument.
 
     Schuler on Wednesday entered an Alford plea to a felony stalking charge under a deal with prosecutors. That means she doesn't admit wrongdoing but acknowledges there's enough evidence for a conviction. The court treats it like a guilty plea.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Students and friends in Mandan are planning a memorial and auction to mark the life of a longtime art teacher who died last year. The Bismarck Tribune reports that 70-year-old Diane Boschee died in November after battling cancer for several years. Nicknamed "The Queen of Flash and Trash," Boschee taught art education at Mandan High School from 1974 to 2001.
 
     Loved ones will hold a memorial and art sale for Boschee at the school Saturday. Pieces of her own artwork and personal collections will be sold at the school and online, with half the proceeds going to the school's art department.
 
     John Gieser is the current art teacher and a 1998 graduate of the school. He says Boschee is "pretty much legend status around here."
