Today's Thought

No one plants a seed in the morning and eats the fruit in the evening. Parenting is a lot like gardening. What we sow today will be reached in a future season.

North Dakota's Legislature is marching toward its midseason break....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Legislature is marching toward its midseason break, and lawmakers are finishing up committee work and considering remaining bills in their respective chambers.
     Highlights this week include a hearing on a bill to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. The Senate already has rejected a measure this session that would prohibit housing or workforce discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. A similar bill that does not include gender identity is being heard in the House Human Services Committee today. Gov. Doug Burgum says he supports the bill. He says everyone deserves to be treated equally, and the state needs to think about competing with other states for workers.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota lawmakers are considering proposals that would make it easier for patients to get doctor approval for medical marijuana. Advocates say getting approval has been an issue. One reason is that state law requires doctors who certify a patient to assert that medical marijuana will help that person. The medical community says that puts many doctors in an uncomfortable position.
     A proposal that appears headed for a floor vote in the House would remove that requirement. Another would add physician assistants to the list of medical professionals who can certify patients. The list currently includes physicians and advanced practice registered nurses. Other proposals in the House would add edible products to the list of approved medical marijuana forms and would add to the list of approved qualifying medical conditions.


     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks police say a man was killed when he fell under a piece of equipment that was being used to remove snow. Police were called to the scene about 3 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say the man slipped off the front of a skid steer machine and fell under the wheels of the vehicle. The man was declared dead at the scene. No further details have been released.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Public Service Commission has approved a wind farm project that would bring up to 123 turbines to the southern part of the state. The Bismarck Tribune reports that NextEra Energy Resources plans to build the Emmons-Logan Wind Energy Center on about 28,000 acres northeast of Linton. The wind farm will have a capacity of nearly 300 megawatts. North Dakota currently has about 3,150 megawatts of wind capacity.

    Commissioner Julie Fedorchak says community members and landowners in the area support the project. The wind farm is expected to cost about $415 million, including the addition of access roads, underground electrical collection systems, collection substations, operations and maintenance building and meteorological evaluation towers. Great River Energy has signed a 25-year power purchase agreement for the project's full energy output.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary will open a waitlist for incoming students for the second consecutive year after welcoming a record-setting freshman class last fall. Director of Undergraduate Admissions Richard Hinton tells The Bismarck Tribune that the school had 530 freshman students enrolled last fall, and administrators expect enrollment to continue growing. The Bismarck campus will start its waitlist May 1.
     Hinton says the university has seen growth in their nursing and engineering programs in particular. He says the university allows nursing students to complete their senior year for free. Hinton says the year-round campus could be another draw for students interested in completing their bachelor's degrees in less than three years.
     University officials plan to continue monitoring student growth to ensure the school has adequate space to accommodate the demand.
