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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - As law enforcement agencies across North Dakota begin a concentrated effort to catch impaired drivers, some 60 law enforcement officers will be using their specially-trained skills to detect motorists who are high on drugs.
 
     About 20 agencies across the state employ officers who have taken the rigorous, internationally utilized program that helps law enforcement identify drivers who are under the influence of drugs other than alcohol.
 
     North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper Tarek Chase coordinates the state's drug recognition expert training program. Chase tells the Bismarck Tribune law enforcement officers statewide have noticed an increase in drug-impaired driving.
 
     Agencies statewide begin a "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" enforcement campaign Friday and runs through September 2nd.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division says a recent brine spill was contained on a well site near Williston. The release happened Friday about 9 miles west of Williston. Equinor Energy LP reported Monday that 335 barrels of brine were released because of a piping connection leak. All of the brine has been recovered. A state inspector has been to the site and will monitor any additional cleanup. Brine is a byproduct of oil production.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Traffic at North Dakota's eight commercial service airports is up 12 percent in July compared to last year. The state Aeronautics Commission says more than 110,000 people boarded planes at the airports in Bismarck, Minot, Williston, Dickinson, Grand Forks, Fargo, Devils Lake and Jamestown during the month.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune says Williston had the highest percentage increase, of nearly 27 percent. Year-to-date boardings for the eight airports are up more than 10 percent, to nearly 691,000 passengers. Travelers can reach nine nonstop destinations from North Dakota, though two are seasonal.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota agriculture officials say anthrax has been confirmed in a group of cows in a pasture in eastern Billings County. The case was confirmed Friday. It is North Dakota's first reported case of anthrax this year. North Dakota state veterinarian Susan Keller says producers in Billings County and surrounding areas should check with their veterinarians to see if they should start vaccinating their cattle for anthrax. It takes about a week for anthrax vaccines to establish immunity.

     KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say an experienced skydiver died after his parachute malfunctioned during a gathering in northwest Montana.
 
     The Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell reports 81-year-old Gerald Fischer, of Moorhead, Minnesota, was participating in the Lost Prairie Boogie near Marion on Saturday morning when he had a hard opening and started to spin counter-clockwise. Fischer, who has completed more than 2,000 jumps, landed in a pasture and died at the scene.
 
     The Lost Prairie Boogie is one of the largest gatherings of skydivers in the West. The nine-day summer camp draws hundreds of jumpers from around the country and the world.
 
     Several people have died at the site over the years, including five people who were killed in a plane crash shortly after takeoff in 2007.
