TODAY'S THOUGHT

The challenge for believers is to understand when our technology habits are leading us into greater anxiety, fear, anger, and pride and be willing to course correct as necessary....to harness these tools rather than allow them to master us.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican Kevin Cramer is assuring North Dakota farmers that as a U.S. Senator, he has President Donald Trump's ear on trade. Cramer says Trump will get them a good - and maybe even a great - deal in trade negotiations with China.

    Cramer defeated Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp on Tuesday. Heitcamp cast herself as a champion of farmers in her unsuccessful re-election bid and made trade a centerpiece of her campaign. She argued the Trump administration got the country into a "misguided trade war."

    China is the No. 1 export market for North Dakota soybeans.

    North Dakota Soybean Growers Association President Joe Ericson estimated that half of the state's soybean crop this year will have to be put in storage until markets rebound.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Only a few dozen Native American voters appear to have been affected on Election Day by changes to North Dakota's voter identification requirements that many tribal members believe were aimed at suppressing their vote. Advocacy groups credit an intense effort to ensure a strong Native vote that included free qualifying IDs and free rides to the polls.

    A recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowed the state to continue requiring street addresses on voter IDs, as opposed to addresses such as post office boxes that many Native Americans rely on. Tribes issued more than 2,300 free qualifying IDs in its wake.

    Groups that monitored tribal voting sites estimate the number of voters who experienced identification problems totaled only in the dozens. Many cast ballots that will be counted if they can prove eligibility.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota voters approved a constitutional amendment to overhaul government ethics oversight. The initiative was billed as an anti-corruption amendment. It aimed to ban foreign money from elections, restrict lobbying and create an independent ethics commission, among other things.

    Supporters cited a Super Bowl trip offered to Gov. Doug Burgum by a utility company as a reason why the state needs an ethics commission. North Dakota is one of a handful of states without such a panel.

    Opponents said the measure was poorly worded and there are enough safeguards in place to monitor government, including an ethics policy recently released by Burgum. They also worried it could be used as a weapon for political purposes and hurt people who don't hold office.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Newly re-elected Secretary of State Al Jaeger says his eighth term will be his last. Jaeger beat Josh Boschee, a Democratic state representative from Fargo, on Tuesday. Jaeger's victory came despite being snubbed by his own party and attacked by opponents as out of date. Jaeger says those attacks were unfair.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The county sheriff who led the law enforcement response to large-scale Dakota Access oil pipeline protests in North Dakota has been re-elected to another four-year term by a wide margin. Kyle Kirchmeier got two-thirds of the votes cast in the Morton County sheriff's race on Tuesday to easily defeat challenger Dave Shipman.

    In 2016 and 2017 he led the response to the pipeline protests that drew thousands of people and resulted in 761 arrests over a six-month span. Law enforcement supporters credit him with keeping protesters in check. Opponents allege the law enforcement response to the protests was too heavy-handed.
