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.

Standing Rock Sioux tribal members and others who are suing over a five-month shutdown of a North Dakota highway during protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline have broadened their claims against state and county officials....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Standing Rock Sioux tribal members and others who are suing over a five-month shutdown of a North Dakota highway during protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline have broadened their claims against state and county officials. They now allege the closure of a stretch of state Highway 1806 outside protest camps in 2016 and 2017 was not only aimed at protesters but also at influencing the tribe's position on the camps and the media's coverage of the prolonged clash. They seek unspecified money damages for alleged violations of their rights.

    Authorities argue they had not only the authority to shut down the highway but also an obligation to do so in the interest of public safety. County attorney Randall Bakke says there's no basis for the new claims.

     PAGE, N.D. (AP) - It was a close call for three people in a car that got stuck in the snow on a railroad crossing in Cass County. Authorities say the three were working to free the Mazda from the snow Friday morning on Highway 38 near Page when an eastbound train approached.

    The three were outside of the car trying to push it from the tracks when the Burlington Northern Santa Fe came barreling down the tracks. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the trio moved away to safety and weren't hurt when the train, unable to stop, smashed into the car. It was catapulted into the railroad right of way. Two people on the train were not hurt. A no travel advisory had been in effect for more than 24 hours when the crash occurred about 3 a.m.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - As North Dakota's Health Department enters the final stages of implementing a statewide distribution system for medical marijuana, state lawmakers are considering proposals that would make it easier for patients to get doctor approval for the drug. Medical marijuana advocates are applauding, especially after more than two years of waiting for the drug approved by voters in November 2016.
 
     A proposal that appears headed for a floor vote in the House would add physician assistants to the list of medical professionals who can certify patients. The list currently includes physicians and advanced practice registered nurses. Another important proposed change would help ease the concerns of doctors who must give their approval before patients can get state-approved medical marijuana cards.
 
     The Health Department hopes to have medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the state's eight major cities by fall. Medical marijuana grown at a state-approved Bismarck manufacturing facility could be available at either the Grand Forks or Fargo dispensary within weeks, according to Jason Wahl, director of the department's Medical Marijuana Division.
 
     The state estimates that as many as 4,000 residents will legally be using the drug by summer 2021. But so far, it has issued fewer than 100 medical marijuana cards to patients and caregivers. Applications have been accepted since late October.
 
     Medical marijuana advocates say finding doctors willing to certify patients has been a struggle.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - National Guard soldiers from the Upper Midwest who served about a year of duty in Afghanistan will be honored this weekend. A public "welcome home" event is scheduled at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Fargo for members of the North Dakota Army National Guard's 191st Military Police Company. Nearly 30 members of the company returned home late last year. The soldiers are from 20 communities in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.
