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.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A private security company accused of operating illegally in North Dakota during protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline says it would be willing to pay fines to settle the case as long as it's not required to admit wrongdoing. North Dakota's Private Investigative and Security Board has invited North Carolina-based TigerSwan to submit its best settlement offer.
 
     The board sued last June, alleging the company operated without a license while working for the pipeline developer. TigerSwan maintains it provided consulting services that don't require a license.
 
     TigerSwan wants to settle the case so it can be licensed in North Dakota. Officials say not being licensed in one state can affect the company in other states. The board declined to comment on whether a settlement offer with no admission of wrongdoing would be acceptable.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Game and Fish Department says it has paid $621,000 to counties in which it owns or leases land, $23,000 less than the previous year. The payments are in lieu of property taxes. The payments for 2017 ranged from less than $82 in Griggs County to more than $94,000 in McLean County. Game and Fish manages more than 200,000 acres in 51 counties for wildlife habitat and public hunting. The department doesn't have any land in Traill or Renville counties.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she'll vote to confirm Gina Haspel to lead the CIA. Heitkamp, a Democrat, says in a statement it wasn't an easy decision and that Haspel's "involvement in torture is deeply troubling." But she says Haspel has assured her the CIA won't use such tactics in the future.
 
     Heitkamp's announcement Tuesday came as the Senate Intelligence committee's top Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, said he would vote to confirm Haspel. Their support made it likelier she would be confirmed by the full Senate soon.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have arrested 78 people in a five-state immigration sweep in the Midwest. Officials say the arrests happened over six days. Iowa and Nebraska each saw 25 arrests, while there were 15 arrests in Minnesota, 10 in South Dakota and three in North Dakota.

    ICE says the operation targeted those who have criminal records, are public safety threats or violated immigration laws. Sixty-two of the people arrested had prior criminal convictions; 31 had illegally re-entered the United States after having been previously deported.

    Most of the people arrested are from Mexico. The arrests also included people from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Kenya, the Ivory Coast and Sudan. They will remain in ICE custody pending additional proceedings.
