TODAY'S THOUGHT

The truth of the resurrection gives life to every other area of gospel truth. The resurrection is the pivot on which all of Christianity turns and without which none of the other truths would much matter. Without the resurrection, Christianity would be so much wishful thinking, taking its place alongside all other human philosophy and religious speculation.

– John MacArthur

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - More than 800 state-level criminal cases stemming from the prolonged protest in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline are mostly wrapped up, and the last scheduled trial has concluded.

    Katrina Silk, of Mitchell, South Dakota, was convicted Tuesday of obstructing a government function but acquitted of other misdemeanors including rioting. She was given two months of unsupervised probation and ordered to pay $325 in fees.

    Thousands of pipeline opponents came to North Dakota in 2016 and 2017 to protest the $3.8 billion pipeline, resulting in 761 arrests .

    An organization of volunteer attorneys that formed to represent protesters says it has concluded its work. And the Water Protector Legal Collective is shifting focus to other potential battles including the Keystone XL pipeline and President Donald Trump's southern border wall.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The company proposing to develop a controversial wind farm in Burleigh County is appealing a decision denying it permits for the project.
 
     Pure New Energy USA has filed an appeal with the South Central Judicial District Court challenging the Burleigh County Commission's recent decision to deny 30 special use permits. The Bismarck Tribune says the company argues it has "met any and all requirements for issuance" of the permits for the Burleigh-Emmons Wind Farm.
 
     The county commission last month voted 4-1 to deny the permits in Morton Township as recommended by the county planning and zoning board. The project has elicited a strong response from community members, drawing more than 500 people to a recent four-hour public hearing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House has approved a bipartisan bill that expands the locations where a parent unable to care for a baby can leave the child. Under current law, it's illegal to abandon a baby under the age of 1 in North Dakota unless it happens at a hospital. The measure would expand the locations, such as a police station or a county social services office.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Legislature is considering a bill to give residents more power over their personal internet data. Fargo Republican Rep. Jim Kasper says his bill allows North Dakotans to ask companies what personal data has been collected and how it has been shared. The measure also would allow residents to demand the data be deleted and not collected in the future. Microsoft officials spoke in favor of the bill, and say it would not be hard for tech companies to comply.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House wants a contest for a replacement state logo. Representatives voted 78-14 on Wednesday to have the Commerce Department hold the contest and have a logo awarded in time for the 2020 state travel guide. The action comes after a new "Be Legendary" logo was awarded to a Minnesota firm. The business was awarded the $9,500 job without competition because it came in below the $10,000 threshold required for additional bids.
