Big Beaver Port Of Entry IS Closing March 31st

SAND ELECTRIC has been in the process of setting up a base of operations in Scobey the past year or so, but now the committment has become much greater with the purchase of the former Outlaw Trail Cafe building on the corner of 1st Avenue West and Janus Street. The building has mostly been vacant since the restaurant relocated to Main Street. Josh Sand (left), owner of the company was in Scobey earlier this week when we caught the electrician playing the role of carpenter, building shelves for equipment and supplies in the new Scobey location. The location will provide an operations base and supply storage, rather than a store front, for his new employee, master electrician John Stanley. He had been living and working in the Scobey area for a short time previous to the building purchase. Josh told the Leader they are staying busy and have a lot of work already lined up. “It should be a good deal for everyone” he said, “It will save a lot of driving and windshield time, saving money for the clients.” Work will still be scheduled and dispatched from the Glasgow phone numbers, “We may eventually become a store front and need a secretary at this location, but for now, we’ll see how things go,” he said. The location will not only provide supplies storage and a parking lot for his equipment . . . living quarters are in the plans for Stanley in one end of the building. The past few months, Jasmyn deSousa has been renting a portion of the building and will be able to stay on as a renter with her Jazzy Style Grooming for pets. —Leader Photo, burl

U.S. Weather Service Readings taken daily at the official station, located about three miles N.W. of Scobey at the Tande Ranch.

Elsewhere in this issue there is an official notice concerning the permanent closure of the Big Beaver Port of Entry, which is the Canadian counterpart of the U.S. Port of Whitetail, MT. In the notice, travelers are advised to enter Canada at other crossings, after March 31st. The Canada Border Services Agency first made the announcement in July of 2010, all unbeknownst by the American government, which at the time, had already started a multi-million dollar renovation to the Whitetail Port. There has been efforts Canadian organizations, N.O.P.E. (Not Our Port of Entry) and Ports to Prairies, assisted by several interested Americans to keep the port from closing. Hopes were to get the American and Canadian border service people and other elected officials to come together for a meeting, which to our knowledge, has not happened. At this writing, after several hours of making phone calls, emails to politicians and government agencies and getting referred to many different offices from Washington State to Washington,

Chair, Sue Hagan, feels that getting the activities planned and nearly finalized is a priority at this time along with logo designs etc. Input is being sought by the committee. A more complete report will appear in the

of the group to not pursue an all class reunion at the same time as the centennial. The next public meeting is Mon. April 11, 7 p.m., Nemont Friendship Room.

Montana, accusing a Scobey insurance agent, Eugene, “Tip” Lavey of “Misappropriations of Premiums/Theft (Common Scheme)”. He as been summoned to appear in District Court in Scobey on Wednesday, March 16 for an initial appearance. Documents filed with the Court say he allegedly, through a series of acts, misappropriated for his personal use, a total of over $56,000 in premiums paid by clients, from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009, in over 200 transactions. An investigation began on November 11, 2009 when the Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance office received a complaint from a Farmers Insurance Exchange senior auditor, who had conducted an audit of the defendant’s business in Scobey. The auditor alleged that from March 2009 through April of 2009, Tip Lavey, who was a Farmers Insurance agent at that time, had misappropriated over $8,900 in premiums entrusted to him by 89 insured clients. Subsequent investiga-

D.C., we do not know for sure what the American side plans to do. Very likely close, but when? Or will Canadians be able to enter the U.S. but not leave through that port.? Not likely. It appears that no one in Customs and Border Protection, at any level, has been given a directive. This was somewhat confirmed by CBP public affairs officer, Lynn Shozda of Sweetgrass when she told us that she has not yet heard anything as to the official closing. If the upper echelon isn’t aware of when this will take place, do the employees know when their jobs will be re-located? Late in September of last year, Senator Jon Tester announced that the Department of Homeland Security would begin the process of the Whitetail closure, but Congress would have 90 days to review the proposal and after the 90 days, a 60day public comment period would be opened up. Then a final decision would be made. We should be at about the end of the public comment time period. And, it appears to be the end of the road at Whitetail.

tions by the Commissioner of Securities and Insurance were conducted and the resulting investigations determined that there appeared to be many other instances of misappropriated funds during the May 2008 to April 2009 time frame. These felony charges are punishable by fines up to $50,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 10 years or both. Mike Winsor of the Montana State Auditor’s Office and Special Assistant Attorney General will be acting as the Special Deputy Daniels County Attorney and attorney for the State.

J.O Motor Inn On Main Has New Owners; New Use

The J.O. Motor Inn, on the north end of Main Street in Scobey was sold recently by Norman Juel to J & H Harvesting (Mark Jensen & Jesper Hansen). Plans are to do some fixing up on the place to serve as living quarters for the company’s growing harvest crew. The motel has been closed for many years. Among other names, the location was also previously known as The General’s Motor Inn and the Knight Hotel.

It was a big responsibility for a 4-yr. old, but John Carney handled it well. He opened the gate to Disneyland the morning of February 9. This allowed the many thousands of visitors to enter into the famous theme park; and also to leave later on. Wow! John’s folks, Todd and Dori, John and his little sister Kayla, were the first in line to enter Disneyland that morning and while waiting were visiting with employees. The gentleman at right asked John if he would open the gate when the time came and he agreed. (Notice the control w/cord in his hand, with the button which opened the gate.) When given the word, John pressed the button, the gate opened and the crowd poured in – led, we assume, by the Carney family of Scobey. *T*I*P* Lickety split is a term not used as much as it was a number of years ago. It means “very fast” or “headlong.” The “lick” in the phrase is associated with speed because of how fast the tongue moves in the mouth and “split” is probably associated with another term, split second. *T*I*P* It has been reported that many public pension funds around the nation are now underfunded. There can be several reasons for this. The recession causing lower interest on public investments for a couple of years is one major reason. Many pension funds did not follow prudent “spread the risk” plans. A connected problem is that while the recession continues officials are loath to make increases in payments to the various pension plans during this era of general belt tightening. An under estimation of ever increasing longevity in the U.S. has also contributed to the current shortfalls. Some experts point out that similar situations have arisen in years past and the pensions always bounce back. If not, state and local governments are required by law to keep the pensioners’ monthly checks coming in. These include most government workers such as police, fire fighters, highway patrol,            teachers, legislators, judges — general PERS. This under funding is not included in the much publicized debts in many states.

A recent morning with another inch or two of snow saw this writer out early to clear a path on the sidewalk before it became packed down by pedestrians heading to the school. Only two sets of tracks were evident in the new snow – those of a deer and of a dog – it was assumed. Back inside, warming our feet, a different possibility entered our mind. We might have actually seen evidence of a wildlife saga. Maybe that second set of tracks were those of a coyote – even though it was only a block off Scobey’s Main Street. That predatory canine could have been hoping that the deer was so weakened by the, long, tough winter that it would be easy prey. Upon looking for evidence of an encounter between the two, nothing was found nearby. So, we will never know if that second set of tracks were made by a coyote or by his relative, a friendly neighborhood dog. A winter such as this one, with lots of snow cover, always causes various wildlife to seek refuge in towns. –MG *T*I*P*

Legislature’s Focus Sharpens As Session Passes Its Midpoint

Community News Service • UM School of Journalism

Battles over taxes and spending for education, social services for the needy, and institutions like the prisons will push their way onto stage in the Legislature’s second half, but lots of other dramas remain to be played out, too. Of the slightly more than 1,000 bills introduced so far, roughly a third of those are probably dead or stuck in limbo. But that still leaves a lot of lawmaking to do before the session’s scheduled end on April 21. Here’s a roundup of major legislation still kicking in Helena: Medical marijuana – The question of how to regulate Montana’s medical marijuana industry awaits the Legislature’s decision on whether to repeal the voterinitiated law that allows the medicinal use of cannabis. House Speaker Mike Milburn’s bill to repeal the 2004 law passed the House easily and now goes to the Senate, where its fate is less certain. Even if it passes, no one is sure whether Gov. Brian Schweitzer will sign it. Waiting in the wings are bills to put stricter controls on who can obtain, grow and dispense medical marijuana. A referendum asking voters to repeal the medicinal marijuana law in 2012 also could be in the works. DUI – The movement to crack down on repeat DUI offenders is advancing. The most successful bills so far include a House measure that would require twice-daily

testing of repeat offenders as their cases move through court. House Bill 106 is now in the Senate. The House will get a look soon at two Senate attempts to limit the problem. Senate Bill 15 would create the crime of aggravated DUI for drunken drivers whose blood-alcohol content is more than twice the legal limit of .08. Senate Bill 42 would empower police to get search warrants requiring that DUI suspects take breath or blood tests. Other surviving bills include one that aims to ensure that prior DUI convictions are counted when judges sentence repeat offenders. Lawmakers may also decide whether to allow counties to punish adults who knowingly provide alcohol to underage Montanans at social gatherings. Workers’ compensation reform – Reducing the high cost of workers’ comp insurance is a high priority for business, and the House has passed a bill that promises to reduce employers’ premiums. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Scott Reichner, R-Bigfork, focuses on limiting workers’ claims, much to the dismay of Democrats in both houses. The measure heads to the Senate, which has tabled a competing proposal supported by the Schweitzer administration and written by a committee representing labor and industry. Sponsored by Sen. Ryan Zinke, R-Whitefish, that bill focuses on limiting payments to health care providers. Abortion – Emotions are running high as social conservatives seek to make the most of their majority. Senators have passed bills requiring parental notification of abortions involving girls under the age of 16 and prohibiting abortions by providers who qualify to offer health services under the new federal health care law. The House passed a bill aimed at preventing women from being coerced into having abortions. It would require a pre-abortion evaluation to determine if the woman was undergoing the procedure of her own free will. The House killed a bill that would have required pre-abortion ultrasound exams. The House also advanced two proposed constitutional ballot measures, including one saying that Montanans have no specific right to an abortion and prohibiting public funding of abortions. The other would define a person to include fetuses. Environment/Energy – Over Democrats’ protests, Republicans are pushing hard this session for bills rolling back environmental laws and regulations in the hopes of creating more jobs in natural resource and energy development. High on the GOP’s list is Senate Bill 317, which would revise the Montana Environmental Policy Act, the law that allows for reviews of potential damage caused by development projects. The measure directs the state to consider a project’s economic benefits and restricts the grounds on which a project’s critics can sue. Senate Bill 233 would allow a project to continue while a court considers challenges to a MEPA review. Daniels County Vision Clinic

Another surviving bill would revise Montana’s 1998 voter-approved law banning new gold mines that use the cyanide leaching process. Senate Bill 306 would allow new mines provided that they process their ore in existing leaching facilities. Other bills advancing include House Bill 550, which seeks to give the state authority over any federal effort to regulate greenhouse gas emissions in Montana. Meanwhile, Montana’s 2005 law to encourage the development of new renewable energy businesses is being challenged by Republicans who say its incentives only increase costs for consumers. Bills are moving forward that critics say would gut the act’s purpose by allowing utilities to count much of the hydropower they already use toward quotas of energy the law says they must buy from renewable sources. Another bill would make it more difficult for small wind power and solar energy developers to sell power to major utilities. Death penalty – Efforts to abolish Montana’s death penalty moved forward when the Senate passed a bill to replace it with life imprisonment. That bill now moves to the House, where it faces tough odds. A similar bill passed the Senate two years ago, but died in a House committee. Gay Rights – The House passed legislation that Continued on Page Five

would overturn the Missoula’s anti-discrimination ordinance that bans discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender expression. That measure moves to the Senate. The House also killed a bill that would have banned discrimination against sexual orientation and gender expression under the state’s Human Rights Act. Guns – Over a dozen bills dealing with gun rights or hunting are making their way through the session. A bill to eliminate the need for a concealed carry permit in cities for eligible individuals moved to the Senate after a close vote in the House. Also advancing are bills to permit the use of silencers in the field and strengthen Montana’s Firearms Freedoms Act, which passed last session. Casualties include a measure which sought to imprison federal officials who enforce federal gun laws that conflict with the Firearms Freedom Act and a bill that would have limited weapons seizures by law enforcement. Stream access – Expect a clash in the Senate over a House bill that seeks to exclude irrigation ditches from the Montana law that gives recreationist access to the beds and banks of streams and rivers. Anglers, hikers and others fear House Bill 309’s definition of irrigation ditches could be used to exclude access to many state waterways. Landowners, however, say the bill would help them protect their property. The bill stems from a 2008 Montana Supreme Court ruling that allowed recreational access to a slough running along musician Huey Lewis’ property in the Bitterroot Valley. Nullification – Several nullification bills crashed in the session’s first half, but others survived. Among the living is Senate Bill 106, which would compel Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock to join other states in a multi-state lawsuit seeking to repeal federal health care reform. Another survivor is House Joint Resolution 14, which declares that states retain the right to decide when individual liberties may be abridged and that states “are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to general government.” A bill to nullify the federal Endangered Species Act, House Bill 321, passed the GOP-controlled House but was referred to the House Appropriations Committee because it has the potential to cost Montana nearly $500 million dollars in federal support for highways and other state programs. Eminent domain – The Senate is scheduled take up House Bill 198, an industry-backed attempt to ensure that state-approved development projects have the power to condemn private property under Montana’s eminent domain law. The bill is in response to a legal dispute in Glacier County over land the Montana-Alberta Tie power line project wants for its proposed line from Great Falls to Lethbridge, Alberta. Ranchers and farmers say the bill threatens their property rights. Meanwhile, the House is scheduled to consider a Senate bill that would give Montana the power of eminent domain over some federal land within its borders. The measure is a response to the federal Bureau of Land Management’s new “Wild Lands” designation, which allows the BLM to withdraw land from development without the approval of Congress. Physician-assisted suicide – Efforts to implement the Montana Supreme Court’s 2009 decision allowing physician-assisted suicide in Montana have stalled in the Legislature. Senators voted down a bill to ban the practice altogether and tabled a measure to create guidelines and regulations consistent with the Supreme Court decision. -Reporters Jamie Bedwell, Cody Bloomsburg, Jayme Fraser and Dan Viehland contributed to this report.

LEADING OFF IN SPORTS TRIVIA On February 25, 1940 the New York Rangers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 6-2 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. What made this game so significant?

••• Trailing Culbertson 3730 with 1:07 left in the third period of Friday’s first semifinal, the Spartans showed all in attendance what they’re made of by pulling off an 18-0 scoring blitz. Three-point field goals by Benson and Nelson with a Drury deuce sandwiched in between gave Scobey a 38-37 advantage at the quarter break. Drury started the fourth with an inside basket, Henderson followed with a 15-footer, Drury received a nifty bounce-pass-assist from Henderson for another two, Kilgore drilled an 18-footer and Simeniuk, on another assist from Henderson, made a layup. In a span of 5:13 the Spartans went from being down 37-30 to leading 48-37. A short jumper by Kilgore, two free throws by Simeniuk and four freebies by Benson in the final two and a half minutes protected the double-digit lead.

••• In the first 13 minutes of Saturday’s championship the Spartans managed to lead Fairview five times and be tied at 2, 4, 7, 9, 12 and 16 before the defending state champs took the lead for good. After Henderson made a free throw to knot it at 16 with 3 minutes to go until halftime, the Warriors used an 8-0 run to take control, getting a 16foot swish out of Gifford, a 14-footer from Lexi Cayko and two buckets from allstater Morgan Klose for a 2416 lead. Henderson’s basket with two seconds left made it 24-18 at intermission.

BASKETBALL — Lil’ kid halftime hoop: It was Friday, February 4, when some of the elementary kids from Scobey and Opheim provided the halftime entertainment during the Saco-Whitewater at Scobey girls’ varsity game. Opheim third grader Kortney Nelson — number 25 in your program — was one of the participants and judging from the expression on her face she was sure enjoying herself. Spartan boys’ stat chat: The Scobey varsity boys have outscored their 20 opponents 1032-723, a 51.6-36.1 average, and made 129-of-227 (.568) free throws. The Spartans have made 123 three-point field goals, led by Drew Baldry with 45 and followed by Ethan Aldrich with 25, Kale Love 24, T.J. Snare 19, Ryan Rasmussen 6, David Meyers 3 and Logan Hansen 1. Spartan girls’ stat chat: At the East C Divisional Tournament in Glasgow the Spartan girls hit 70-186 (.376) total field goals, 16-53 (.301) being from behind the three-point line, and 23-37 (.621) free throws. The Spartans had 60 turnovers in four games, an average of 15. For the season, which ended Monday night with an overall record of 21-4, the Spartans outscored their opponents 1092-678, a 43.6-to-27.1 average. They made 155-244 (.635) free throws. They made 61 three-point field goals, led by BriAnn Nelson with 24 and followed by Demi Henderson with 16, Gwynn Simeniuk 14, Jade Benson 3 and Macki Kilgore and Lindsay Reller 2 each.

rior play of Drury produced three baskets, including a nice 180-degree pivot with a cross-over follow-up to the hole, and two free throws by Nelson cut the deficit to 33-30 with 1:15 left in the quarter. On four occasions throughout the contest Kittleson drove right through the heart of Scobey’s defense for layups, one which occurred with 1:02 left in the third for a 35-30 score at the quarter stop. Twenty-six seconds into the fourth the 5-foot-5 junior dropped in a long 2-pointer for a 37-30 lead. A Kilgore free throw followed by a fast-break layup from Simeniuk made it 37-33 with six minutes left but that is as close as the Spartans would get. Kittleson added a field goal and two free throws, Morgan Klose converted a fast-break layup and Gifford closed out Fairview’s scoring with 7 points — a field goal and 5-of-6 showing from the charity stripe in the final 1:26. Stat-wise, Fairview’s 11-to-17 advantage in fouls led to seven more attempts at the free throw line, where the Warriors sank 13-of-17 for 76.5%! And a 9-to-15 difference in turnovers led to a 17-to-10 points-off-turnovers advantage for the two-time defending East C champs.

Daniels Mem. Healthcare Center in Scobey will be offering a weekly telemedicine program, “Group Lifestyle Balance” for diabetic and pre-diabetic patients aimed at making positive lifestyle changes. The program will run from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, beginning Wednesday, March 9 and will run for 16 consecutive weeks. This program is free to anyone with a referral from their Primary Care Provider. Each participant must be an adult with a body mass index of over 25; have one other cardiovascular risk factor; have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, or metabolic syndrome; and be interested in lifestyle changes. Participants are asked to commit to the entire 16 weeks. Lifestyle Balance is based on the CDC DPP project that shows lifestyle can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes with a 58% success rate. The program includes a binder, weekly lessons, Calorie King book, one lab SCOBEY JUNIOR Macki Kilgore heaves a free throw draw of a lipid panel and during Saturday’s title tilt against the Fairview Warriors, fasting blood glucose at 16 weeks, weekly log books, who won 51-42. — Photo by Kyle Myhre weekly personal updates Henderson with 3:51 left in 7 (Simonson 2, Cox 1, Crowder and feedback.

Sherw ood Inn

The Scobey Small-Town AAU Wrestling Team had a very successful day during its second meet of the season Saturday, Febraury 26, at the Glasgow Invitational held at the Glasgow Civic Center. Twelve of the 15 Scobey youngsters represented the community in outstanding fashion by placing in the top three against competition from Havre, Chinook, Malta, Glasgow, Wolf Point, Poplar, Sidney, Plentywood, Williston and Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Placing were: Aiden Baros, Tot Division, 36 pounds, first place; Chance Smith, Tot 56.7, first; Braxton Wolfe, Tot 40, first; Cameron Anderberg, Tot 42, third; Payton Leibrand, Bantam 68, first; J.P. Braut, Bantam 44, second; Ender Young, Bantam 42.5, third; Rio Booth, Bantam 66, fifth; Parker Cromwell, Midget 63, first; Wyatt Welchlin, Midget 107, first; Martin Farver, Midget 78, second; Prewitt Leibrand, Midget 107, second; Walker Welchlin, Midget 81, third; Anders Knudsen, Novice 85, fourth; Dylan Meyers, Novice 73, fifth. The Scobey Small-Town grapplers kicked off their 2011 season at the Baker Invitational February 19 with about 350 kids competing. Seven Scobey boys competed: Meyers, Novice division, 75 pounds, third; Austyn Fishell, Novice 75, fifth; Farver, Midget 80, third; Prewitt Leibrand, Midget 112, second; Payton Leibrand, Bantam 70, first; Aiden Fishell, Bantam 60, fourth; Baros, Tot 40, fourth. Both Farver and Meyers lost their championship match and had to turn around and wrestle for”true second.” Both lost and finished in third. Next action for the Scobey Small-Town Wrestlers is Saturday, March 5, in Williston at the high school starting at 9 a.m. MDT (if in Sidney for the East C Divisional Boys’ Basketball on Saturday and have time to kill until evening games head 40 miles northeast to Williston for some wrestling action).

Rep. Knudsen Reports

by Rep. Austin Knudsen, HD 36

The 62nd Montana Legislature reached its official halfway mark on February 24th. Known as ‘transmittal,’ at this point most bills from each chamber (House or Senate) have to be voted on and sent to the other chamber for action (kill or pass on to the Governor). The House of Representatives has passed several pro-business tort reform bills, as well as a number of healthcare bills aimed at putting Montana in charge of our healthcare decisions, not the federal government. One of the pieces of legislation I am most proud of is HB 334, which is a comprehensive reform of Montana’s abysmal worker’s compensation system. Montana currently ranks last in the nation for worker’s compensation rates. We have the highest work comp rates in the country by a long shot, and we would have to reduce rates by more than twenty percent just to reach 49th. A forty percent rate cut puts us right in the national average for rates. Our bloated work comp system is one of the major roadblocks to business growth in Montana. A local Sidney oilfield company testified that his company would save more than a million dollars in work comp just by moving across the state line to Williston. If signed into law, HB 334 will reduce Montana work comp rates and make us more business friendly, and I am a proud co-sponsor of this important bill. Another piece of legislation that I’m carrying in the House is SB 317, a comprehensive reform of Montana’s environmental laws. This bill passed out of the Senate, and must now be vetted in the House before it goes to the Governor’s desk. SB 317 continues protecting our environment, while also recognizing that Montanan’s have the constitutional right to pursue economic prosperity by developing private property. SB 317 will prevent frivolous lawsuits from environmentalist groups suing to block responsible natural resource development in Montana. While this isn’t an issue in northeast Montana (yet), it is a major impediment to resource development in the rest of the state. If the Bakken oilfield keeps developing in our area, it is only a matter of time these groups start filing lawsuits to stop Montana oil drilling because they will claim it contributes to global warming. This would be devastating to our local and state economies, which is why I think it is so important that our environmental laws be reformed now. As always, I appreciate communication and input from home. I can be contacted via email at austinforhouse@, ph. (406) 5394268, or mail: MT House of Representatives, P.O. Box 200400, Helena, MT 59620.

Daniels Memorial Healthcare Center Notes Dr. Sawdey With A Word About Lifeline Screening

Over the last month I have had many requests to explain the Lifeline Screening that is coming to Scobey in mid-March. Essentially, there are several national companies that use ultrasound to evaluate the large vessels of the neck and the large vessel of the abdomen in order to find blockage in this area. Further, I notice that the Lifeline will do a bone density study in the heel to evaluate for osteoporosis. These are what are considered ‘screening tests’. This means that in a general population, people may have risk factors for early disease such as blockage of the carotid arteries, but presently have no symptoms related to that condition. The idea is to find something going on before it becomes a big deal. While this sounds very good, I am not clear about the quality of the tests or the instruments that Lifeline uses. Medically, we do not generally screen the population as a whole unless there are some additional risk factors. For example, we will do a screening ultra-

Billings; and March 17 at the Eagles Club in Miles City. The Environmental Protection Agency revised its fumigation rules after young children in Utah, South Dakota and Texas died from accidentally breathing the fumes of aluminum phosphide fumigants. A commercial applicator contracted to kill rodents apparently applied the pesticide too close to the children’s homes. New EPA regulations completely ban the use of aluminum or magnesium fumigants around all residential areas, which include houses, apartment buildings, nursing homes, schools, day cares and hospitals. They can still be applied around non-residential buildings, but the buffer zone has increased from 15 to 100 feet. People who attend the workshop can receive five private applicator recertification credits, as well as six commercial/government applicator recertification credits. Register by March 10th. Contact Cecil Tharp at or (406) 994-5067. For more information go to www. and select ‘News! Fumigation Programs from March 15th to March 17th.’ sound of the abdomen in a male between the ages of 65 and 75 that has a history of smoking. This is a recognized need as established over years of study and is approved by most insurance companies because of the value this test has. It is also approved by Medicare. Further, we do not screen the carotid arteries unless people are having neck pain, stroke-like symptoms or are going in for some type of heart artery treatment, as its value has not been established as above. Lastly, the heel bone density study (the kind that Lifeline Screening uses) uses ultrasound technology that is not ideal for detection and treatment of osteoporosis. Be advised, however, these are screening tests and if they come back positive for problems, then you need to go on and have further evaluation by better technology. My personal belief is that if you wish to invest your family’s treasure in these sorts of evaluations, they are certainly not going to hurt you. As for the individual company providing these services in Scobey in mid-March, I really cannot speak to them as they are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration, which is the mechanism we use to judge the authenticity of these sorts of studies. I hope this answered any questions you may have.

Everyone is urged to attend. —Janet Bailey, rpt.

Fugere Trucking

On Wednesday, February 16, Ed Ray, Superintendent of School in Opheim introduced the idea of a 4-day school week, to the district board. During the discussion that followed, the school board directed him to get the word out and solicit the thoughts of the community. A few years ago the state changed the requirements of the school year from 180 student days to 1080 student hours. This change allows local schools a great deal of freedom in setting up their school’s calendar. This is not a new concept and it’s a concept that may not work for everyone, but Montana currently has about 20 schools operating on 4-day school weeks. Colorado and South Dakota have had a 4-day school week for years. Saco is currently running a 4-day week and from reports from their superintendent, an elementary teacher and a few of the students that Mr. Ray spoke with - they love it. Hinsdale and Nashua are currently considering adopting a 4-day week. There are always pro’s and con’s to any change, but what Mr. Ray likes best is e-mail your ads and news to the the fact that they can al- Leader at ways go back if it doesn’t have positive results. The calendar can be constructed to have the same start and end dates that they had this year. A typical week would run Monday through Thursday. The students, who now start class at 8:30, would start at 8:15 and run twenty-two minutes longer, dismissing at 3:35. The main purpose for a 4-day week is that student attendance is improved. With students leaving for various activities such as sports, music, FFA, etc., the school day gets interrupted and the teachers have a difficult time advancing instruction. If those absences, when possible, were planned for a Friday, no instruction would

Years Ago

30 Tons Coal of Coal— Friday morning last week snow plows finally cleaned the road to the Dickman Coal Mine near Whitetail and by Saturday night 30 tons of coals had been hauled from there. Farm Income Gains— Montana farmers reaped a cash income of $96,438,000 in 1935. This figure includes rental and benefit payments under the agriculture adjustment act. A 19% increase from 1934, this figure is nearly double that in 1932. Wheat held state-wide first place in cash income, followed closely by cattle. Chicken Hawks Removed From FFA Contest— The Scobey Chapter of the FFA has decided to take the chicken hawk from the list of “enemies” to be killed in the contest now in progress. Reason is that it is only one type of hawk here that bothers chickens and all hawks are of a benefit to farmers with a diet consisting 90% from insects and rodents.

R-Y Road Being Opened— The R-Y has been plowed south of Flaxville as far as the Frederick School. After completing the R-Y, plans are to open the east road as far as Tony Linder’s. Taken to Prison— Sheriff Henry Lowe of Roosevelt County took Kirby Lindquist, a transient, and Wayne Nefzger, a local boy, to Deer Lodge to begin five year sentences for attempted robbery. They had entered a building on Wolf Point’s Main street and attempted to hold up 9 or 10 men at 1:30 Friday morning. A gun in the hand of Nefzger fired, wounding Reid Taylor. No Funds for Road West; Some to be Oiled— It appears there will be no funds for the proposed farm to market road west from Scobey, although a tentative survey may be made. Highways from both Scobey and Whitetail to the Canadian border are expected to be oiled this summer. The latest session of the Highway Commission resulted in the largest letting of contracts in the state’s history.

Beulah Edland 1917 - 2011

Beulah L. Edland (93) died February 28, 2011 at Daniels Memorial Nursing Home in Scobey. Services are this Saturday, March 5 at 2:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Scobey. Beulah was born April 2, 1917 to Herbert and Ada Anderson on the family farm at East Poplar, Saskatchewan, Canada. She grew up with her three brothers and thee sisters on the farm, having great fun skiing with homemade skies her dad made and playing on a gymnasium he built. Education was always important to Beulah and she would have gone to “Normal School” after graduating from high school, but her dad didn’t have $100 needed for it. Instead Beulah came down to Scobey to care for the Conboy’s son and while working there met her future husband, Lloyd. They were married July 28, 1941 in Glendive, Montana while she was working on a dude ranch near Terry. They rented a house in Scobey and Lloyd farmed near Peerless. In 1942 Lloyd enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Camp Hahn, California. Beulah followed shortly after, taking the train. She found work at a tuna factory and

DANIELS COUNTY LEADER, Scobey, Montana 59263

Consolidated Aircraft as one of the “Rosie the Riveters”. They continued to live in California until Lloyd was sent overseas to Germany in 1944. After the war they moved a house from the farm to Scobey and Beulah lived there until entering the nursing home in August 2010. Being very conservative, Beulah was a talented seamstress, taught by her mother, sewing many of her clothes and her daughters clothes as they were growing up. She worked at Kitzenberg’s Clothing Store after her daughters started school. Beulah was instrumental in the beginning of the operation of DanielsSheridan Federal Credit Union and was the manager for 26 years, retiring in 1985. She enjoyed playing in a bridge club for 25 years, and continued playing even after entering the nursing home. A highlight of her life was traveling, including many states, Mexico and Europe. She will be remembered as a small person with a big spirit. Beulah is survived by her two daughters, Linda (Gene) Lemke of Bonita Springs, Florida and Cheryl (Myron) Halverson of Scobey, three grandchildren, five greatgrandchildren, and, one sister, Delores (Elvin) Dahl of Minot, North Dakota. She was preceded in death by her husband (Dec. 30, 1976), parents, three brothers and two sisters.
