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) - A Watford City accountant has been convicted of wire fraud in a case linked to a man found guilty of ordering two deaths in an oil patch murder-for-hire plot. Rene Johnson was accused of diverting investors' funds in her business, RLJ Factoring, without their knowledge for a high-risk loan to an associate of James Henrikson. Investors eventually got their money back, plus interest.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Johnson was convicted of wire fraud Wednesday in federal court in Bismarck but found not guilty of three other charges related to mail fraud and making false statements.
 
     Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Delorme said the verdict puts an end to a lengthy investigation. But defense attorney Irvin Nodland said the matter is "a long way from being over." Sentencing wasn't immediately scheduled.

Officers Tanner Hersch and Ryan Guggenberger were treated for unspecified injuries at a hospital and released.
 
     The driver of the car also was taken to a hospital with injuries. The Bismarck Tribune reports police believe he was fleeing from other officers who wanted to make a traffic stop for no license plates and no temporary registration. Charges are pending against him.

Fire officials say workers in the building caused the gas leak. Two adults were taken to the hospital. No children were affected. KFGO says firefighters secured the day care children in the building so they wouldn't have to go out into the cold. Everyone else was asked to leave the building. The building was later cleared of carbon monoxide.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum today directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff until sunset Saturday and encouraged North Dakotans to do the same at their homes and businesses, as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of Wednesday's shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

    28-year-old Ian David Long opened fire during college night at a Thousand Oaks country music bar on Wednesday night, killing 12 and sending hundreds fleeing before apparently taking his own life.

    The governor's directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued today by President Donald Trump.

    MINOT, ND - Mayor Shaun Sipma encouraged Minot's youth to be part of the 2019 State of the City event by issuing his Mayor's Youth Challenge during the Minot City Council meeting Monday night.

    "The State of the City is an opportunity to communicate directly with the residents of Minot, and we want to make sure our youth are represented and included in the event," Sipma said. "The Mayor's Youth Challenge offers a variety of ways for our youth to be involved, and we look forward to their involvement."

    The Mayor's Youth Challenge includes three categories:

    - Grades 3-4 will take part in a visual arts challenge to create original artwork with the theme "Illustrate how you feel about living in Minot."

    - Grades 5-6 will take part in a language arts challenge with the theme "If I were Mayor…" The winner of this category will be named "Mayor for a Day" and will participate in events on the Mayor's official calendar that day.

    - Grades 7-12 will participate in a video production challenge, with the goal of creating a video commercial between 1 minute and 3 minutes in length that exemplifies why Minot is a great place to live, work, and play.

    The winners will be announced during the 2019 State of the City event and will receive a monetary award. More details can be found on the City of Minot website at www.minotnd.org.

    "We encourage all youth in these age groups to take part in the Mayor's Youth Challenge," Sipma said. "It will be a learning experience not only for them, but for us as well. We look forward to seeing different visions of Minot through the eyes of our youth."
