TODAY'S THOUGHT

In a shocking contradiction to what we deserve, God offers grace that stretches further than all our sin. It is precisely that great scandal of grace that provokes us to bend our knee and live to glorify the Lord of grace.

Airmen have called off the search for military explosives that fell off a vehicle on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation on May 1.....

     PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) - Airmen have called off the search for military explosives that fell off a vehicle on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation on May 1. Mountrail County Sheriff Ken Halverson announced last week that a container of ammunition for an automatic grenade launcher had been lost near Parshall.
 
     Minot Air Force Base spokeswoman Danielle Lucero tells The Bismarck Tribune that personnel exhausted efforts to find the missing ammunition over the weekend. The Air Force says the ammunition is safe as long as the container is intact. Halverson has said the ammunition won't operate in another device without "catastrophic failure."
 
     The military has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to recovery. Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation Chairman Mark Fox says he understands "accidents happen."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck pharmacist is accused of sending child pornography to 20 people, including his own family members, as well as making a bomb threat against the local high school.
 
     Fifty-year-old Curtis James McGarvey made an initial appearance in South Central District Court Monday on 20 charges, including promoting sexual performance by a minor, child neglect and terrorizing. His attorney, Justin Vinje, says McGarvey "very strongly maintains his innocence."
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports authorities say they connected McGarvey to an email address that sent the child pornography. The address sent the pornography to 20 people, including McGarvey's wife and two adult sons. Officials say it was also sent to a minor. Prosecutors say the email address was also associated with a phone number used to make a bomb threat against Bismarck High School on May 3.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man convicted of threatening the state's Democratic U.S. senator, Heidi Heitkamp, has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison.

    A jury in December 2017 found Kevin Olson guilty of a threatening communication. Authorities say Olson sent an email to Heitkamp's office in December 2016 threatening to shoot her in the head. Court documents show that Olson admitted he sent the email but refused to answer questions about it. He told investigators that he owned firearms.

    Olson faced five years in prison. A sentencing memorandum by prosecutors called Olson a "very dangerous person" and asked for a sentence on the high end of the guideline range. Olson argued for a sentence of probation or home confinement and community service.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Air Force is holding another training session in the massive Powder River Training Complex over the Northern Plains. The Combat Raider training is scheduled today through Thursday, with several types of aircraft. The military says there's the potential for loud noises associated with sonic booms.
 
     The Federal Aviation Administration approved quadrupling the training airspace to 35,000 square miles in March 2015. The expanded complex over the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming officially opened in September of that year, with large-scale exercises such as the one this week limited to 10 days per year.

      The training complex is the largest over the continental U.S.
