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.

It's finally here. It's Election Day 2018.....

    MINOT, ND - It's finally here. It's Election Day 2018. If you haven't already, we encourage you to exercise your right to vote. Polls are open from 7 am to 7 pm today. Find more voting information linked up at our website at www.khrt.com.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican Kevin Cramer says he thinks he's leading Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp but the race is closer than polls suggest. Cramer voted early Monday in Bismarck. He told reporters that his campaign's internal polling show him leading by double-digits, but he says he's still worried about the election. He said he remembers Heitkamp trailing six years ago but going on to beat Rick Berg in a close race. Heitkamp is battling hard for a second term, with a statewide bus tour that was wrapping up on her home turf of Fargo on Monday.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Nine months after Kevin Cramer changed his mind about running for Senate, he'll find out if voters agree it was the right one. After entering the race in February after a personal plea from President Donald Trump, Cramer tied himself closer than ever to Trump in hopes of knocking off Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. Heitkamp struck back by portraying Cramer as a yes-man and playing up her independence from her own party.

    Voters today are also weighing whether to legalize marijuana. Supporters relied mostly on a shoe-leather campaign after they didn't attract much help from big national groups.

    The state's House seat was also up for grabs, with Republican Kelly Armstrong seen as a favorite to take Cramer's place.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A group of landowners from the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation is accusing a crude oil company of trespassing in a lawsuit that seeks compensation for a pipeline that crosses their land. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the former Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation chairman Tex Hall recently announced a federal lawsuit against Andeavor, formerly known as Tesoro. Andeavor recently merged with Marathon Petroleum.

    Hall says a pipeline that transports crude oil to the Marathon Petroleum Mandan Refinery crosses 64 acres within the reservation. He says 26 acres is owned by the tribe while the rest is owned by landowners or allottees. Hall says the company's easement agreement with the allottees expired in 2013. The lawsuit alleges the company is trespassing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Standing Rock Sioux is challenging new government conclusions that the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline poses no significant environmental threats to American Indian tribes in the Dakotas.
 
     The Army Corps of Engineers in August finished more than a year of additional study ordered by a federal judge. The agency said the work substantiated its earlier determination that the chance of an oil spill is low and that minority and low-income populations aren't at greater risk.
 
     Standing Rock is leading a lawsuit against the pipeline built by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners and wants a federal judge to reject the findings. The tribe says the Corps didn't adequately consider information that undermines the agency's conclusions.
 
     The four-state pipeline has been moving North Dakota oil to Illinois since June 2017.
