Today's Thought

Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

If former U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp tries to resurrect her political career, she says it won't be through a run for governor....

   BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - If former U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp tries to resurrect her political career, she says it won't be through a run for governor. Heitkamp tells the Bismarck Tribune that she won't run, saying she is "just not interested in a running a two-year campaign." Heitkamp was reacting to a news story on polling by Republican Gov. Doug Burgum on a potential 2020 matchup with Heitkamp.

    Republican Kevin Cramer defeated Heitkamp last year in her bid for a second term in the Senate. Heitkamp has worked since her defeat as a political commentator. She's also serving as co-chairwoman of a coalition advocating for Congress to pass a trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.


     OXBOW, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a man is dead after a semi pulling a baler sheared his car in half. Authorities say 38-year-old Christopher Bauer of Puposky, Minnesota, was driving a Chevrolet Malibu on a county road south of Oxbow on Friday afternoon when he drove off the road and into a ditch. The car re-entered the road and spun into the path of the semi, which struck the car on the passenger side. KFGO reports the crash split the car in half and ripped both axles off the truck. Bauer died at the scene. The truck driver from Kindred was taken to a Fargo hospital with minor injuries.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo firefighters have rescued a woman from the Red River. Firefighters responded Saturday afternoon to a report of a woman who was in the river and could not climb the steep shore. She was found about 75 yards downstream from where she entered the water, and was about 25 yards from shore and struggling to stay above water. A firefighter entered the river as the woman slipped under the water, swam to her and brought her to shore. She was turned over to paramedics on the scene for an evaluation.


     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a man who stabbed a vendor inside a Mandan Walmart. Police got a call about the knife assault just before noon Friday and arrived within minutes. The store was evacuated and closed. Police say the vendor was approached by a man he did not know. The suspect began yelling and swearing at the vendor and then pulled a knife. The victim received a small cut near one ear and was treated at the scene. Officers searched the store but could not find him. Police reviewed store video and determined the suspect left the store before officers arrived. The suspect is described as possibly in his 30s. He was wearing a dark hoodie-type coat with an emblem on it, jeans and a baseball cap.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The huge white tube between Washburn and Underwood that once carried coal over U.S. Highway 83 is coming down. The Bismarck Tribune reports the tube that for decades served as a landmark along the road in central North Dakota is being removed today.

    It's part of a 3-mile conveyor that the Falkirk Mining Co. installed in 1992 to transport coal from its mining operations east of the highway to its handling facilities on the west side. The company last used the conveyor in 2001. In the years since, Falkirk has relied on large trucks, which can each haul more than 200 tons of coal. The vehicles pass underneath the highway to Great River Energy's Coal Creek Station. The power plant burns it to generate electricity.


     NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld the constitutionality of a 1978 law giving preference to Native American families in foster care and adoption proceedings involving American Indian children.

    Friday's decision by a panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal upholds the Indian Child Welfare Act and reverses a Texas-based federal judge. It comes in a case involving non-Indian families in multiple states who adopted or sought to adopt Native American children.

    Opponents of the law called it an unconstitutional race-based intrusion on states' powers to govern adoptions. But the 5th Circuit majority disagreed, saying the law's definition of an "Indian child" is a political classification.

    The decision was a victory for supporters of the law who say it's needed to protect and preserve Native American culture and families.
