God doesn't run away from our sins or from the sins of any human being; He meets us in them by the indwelling of his incarnate Word.

      BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A new U.S. Supreme Court decision means North Dakota can continue to require residents to provide a street address in order to vote on Election Day.
     Some American Indian tribes argued that street addresses aren't always assigned on reservations and the requirements discriminate against Native Americans. Members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa sued. In April, a federal judge issued an injunction that would have allowed voters to use identification that included a mailing address, such as a post office box.
     But the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked that ruling in September. The tribes made an emergency appeal, but the U.S. Supreme Court decided Tuesday that it would not vacate the appeals court decision, meaning the state's voter ID requirements stay in place for now.
     Secretary of State Al Jaeger says he's pleased with the decision.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's American Indian tribes would be able to collect a state sales tax on their reservations and spend the money on tribal services under a proposal being taken today.
     The state's 5 percent sales tax isn't currently collected on reservations. The Tribal Taxation Issues Committee, headed by Gov. Doug Burgum, will review a draft proposal to allow it. Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger says a tribe that wants to tax its members would sign an agreement the governor. The state would then collect and administer the tax.
     The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe had a similar agreement in 2016. But it ended after the state disagreed with the tribe's contention that its casino purchases were not taxable.

     LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Backers of broad marijuana legalization are looking to break through a geographic barrier in November and get their first foothold in the Midwest after a string of election victories in Northeastern and Western states. Michigan and North Dakota will decide now if the drug should be legal for any adult 21 and older. Nine state have legalize so-called recreational marijuana since 2012.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been scheduled next week for a Bismarck addiction counselor who's accused of hindering police in a methadone patient's arrest. Kiki Schatz faces a misdemeanor charge after refusing to allow police entry into a private opioid treatment clinic in June. Officers were trying to arrest a man for allegedly violating a protection order. Schatz maintained that she's obligated under federal law to protect patients' confidentiality rights.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The former general manager of an events center in Fargo has been sentenced to community service and ordered to pay restitution for embezzling from the business. Richard Pallay had earlier pleaded guilty to theft for stealing nearly $16,000 from Sanctuary Events Center developed by Gov. Doug Burgum's Kilbourne Group.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Trial is underway for a Minot woman accused of killing a man a year ago. Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory is accused of shooting to death 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence. Police have said Thompson tried to intervene in a dispute between Gregory and her ex-boyfriend. Prosecutors allege Gregory shot Thompson three times. Gregory's attorney maintains she acted in self-defense.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Measurable snow is in the forecast for a big chunk of the Dakotas through early Thursday. The National Weather Service says up to 5 inches of snow is expected in central South Dakota, and up to 6 inches could fall in south central and eastern North Dakota. Forecasters say the snow and gusty winds are likely to cause travel problems, and could also result in downed trees and tree branches and power outages.
