Every day is a battle. Will you rest in God's sovereignty, wisdom and grace, or give way to fear because you can't figure everything out?

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man who fled the Ward County Courthouse after a judge revoked his probation and eluded authorities for six months has been sentenced to time served of about 5 1/2 months.
     Thirty-nine-year-old John Rude was ordered immediately detained in March 2018 after a judge sentenced him to six months in jail. But he ran out the front door of the courthouse and wasn't arrested until September.
     The Minot Daily News reports that Rude was recently sentenced to a year and a day in jail, with all of the time suspended except for the 163 days he had already served. He'll be on probation for two years and must pay $525 in court costs.


     CENTER, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified two New Salem residents who died in a one-vehicle crash in Oliver County. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 55-year-old Michael Groce and 54-year-old Michael Itrich were killed in the crash Wednesday morning about half a mile south of center. The patrol says Groce was driving a car that went out of control on a curve on a rural road and rolled in the ditch. Groce and Itrich died at the scene. A second passenger was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The city of Bismarck is asking a judge to throw out a gender discrimination lawsuit filed by a fired female police officer. Robyn Krile alleges the department tried to "kill" her career with various tactics including low scores in the "war room" - gatherings by supervisors to rank officer performance. Krile calls it "an unprofessional group of adult men."
     Now-retired Police Chief Dan Donlin in court documents asserts the war room process makes performance evaluations fairer in part by involving more people and input. Defense attorney Randall Bakke says Krile earned low scores through misconduct.
     The state board that licenses officers dismissed a misconduct case against her, and she kept her peace officer's license. But Krile lost a discrimination case before the state Department of Labor and Human Rights.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo police are investigating a bank robbery by a man who was wearing a graduation robe. Police say the male suspect walked into Alerus Financial about 8 a.m. Friday and produced a note that said "give me money or I'll shoot." Authorities say the man did not show a weapon. He was wearing a maroon or red graduation gown and fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Watford City accountant has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service but no prison time for wire fraud in a case linked to a man found guilty of ordering two deaths in an oil patch murder-for-hire plot. Rene Johnson was accused of diverting investors' funds in her business without their knowledge for a high-risk loan to an associate of James Henrikson. Investors eventually got their money back, plus interest. Johnson also will spend two years on supervised release.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Flooding shouldn't be a big concern this spring in much of the Souris River basin in northern North Dakota. The National Weather Service says in its latest flood outlook that there's an above-normal risk of mostly minor flooding downstream of Minot, but the risk upstream is below normal.
