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.

A Minot woman has been sentenced for driving drunk with her baby daughter in the vehicle.....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman has been sentenced for driving drunk with her baby daughter in the vehicle. Authorities say 28-year-old Rachael Patnaude was legally drunk in October 2017 when she hit-and-ran a vehicle in a bar parking lot after an argument with a man there, picked up her baby and drove to her mother's house. The Minot Daily News reports Patnaude pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors. She was given credit for 11 days served in jail and put on probation for 1 1/2 years. She also was ordered to pay $1,282 in restitution and $2,125 in court costs.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State officials say equipment failure is being blamed for the spill of 960 barrels of brine at a saltwater disposal well in McKenzie County. The Oil and Gas Division says Continental Resources on Monday reported the spill at the Norka well about 10 miles northwest of Watford City. The brine was contained on-site and recovered. A state inspector visited the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Republicans started election night with Kevin Cramer's U.S. Senate win over Heidi Heitkamp and Kelly Armstrong's U.S. House victory over Mac Schneider, and they kept rolling.

    The GOP once again swept all the state offices, including a narrow triumph by longtime Secretary of State Al Jaeger, who ran as an independent because he wasn't endorsed by the party.

    Republicans also saw approval for a ban on noncitizen voting after it was put on the ballot in part to counter turnout for an initiative to legalize marijuana.

    Democrats held out hope for a moral victory with a government ethics measure that was leading as the final votes were tallied. The measure is sponsored by a bipartisan group but Democrats have tried unsuccessfully for years to pass something similar in the Legislature.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The county sheriff who led the law enforcement response to large-scale Dakota Access oil pipeline protests in North Dakota has been re-elected to another four-year term by a wide margin. Kyle Kirchmeier got two-thirds of the votes cast in the Morton County sheriff's race on Tuesday to easily defeat challenger Dave Shipman.

    Kirchmeier first sought the sheriff's position in 2014 after 29 years with the state Highway Patrol. In 2016 and 2017 he led the response to the pipeline protests that drew thousands of people and resulted in 761 arrests over a six-month span. Law enforcement supporters credit him with keeping protesters in check. Opponents allege the law enforcement response to the protests was too heavy-handed. Kirchmeier is one of the defendants in an ongoing federal lawsuit alleging excessive force.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Newly re-elected Secretary of State Al Jaeger says his eighth term will be his last. Jaeger beat Josh Boschee, a Democratic state representative from Fargo, on Tuesday. Jaeger's victory came despite being snubbed by his own party and attacked by opponents as out of date. Jaeger says those attacks were unfair.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Some Native Americans in North Dakota had issues Tuesday complying with the state's voter identification requirements, but advocacy groups and state officials say they are not immediately aware of any widespread problems. A U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month allowed the state to continue requiring street addresses on voter IDs, as opposed to addresses such as post office boxes that many Native Americans have long relied on.
