Phil’s spring forecast

Noise vote nears

Senate GOP loses By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer WASHINGTON — An orbiting NASA telescope is finding whole new worlds of possibilities in the search for alien life, spotting more than 50 potential planets that appear to be in the habitable zone. In just a year of peering out at a small slice of the galaxy, the Kepler telescope has discovered 1,235 possible planets outside our solar system. Amazingly, 54 of them are seemingly in the zone that could be hos-

By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune Mandan’s Police Chief Dennis Bullinger expects thedraft of the city’s first noise ordinance would be enforceable. Adapting to the new law should be low-cost to his department, he said. “I do not foresee any problems,” Bullinger said when asked about training expenses and adjusting department policy. “I would anticipate purchasing four additional meters.” The department now owns one decibel meter; each costs about $70. He said switching to the new law “will require minimal instructions” for his officers. The ordinance caps sound at 50 decibels in residential areas after 11 p.m. Violators can be fined up to $500. Bullinger said responding to a noise call is a simple process.

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) — The country’s most famous groundhog predicted an early spring Wednesday but wasn’t willing to go out on a limb to forecast whether his state’s Pittsburgh Steelers will win the Super Bowl. Punxsutawney Phil emerged just after dawn on Groundhog Day to make his 125th annual weather forecast in front of a smaller-than-usual crowd in rural Pennsylvania who braved muddy, icy conditions to hear his handlers reveal that he had not seen his shadow. Including Wednesday’s forecast, Phil has seen his shadow 98 times and hasn’t seen it just 16 times since 1887, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle, which runs the event. There are no records for the remaining years, though the group has never failed to issue a forecast. Continued on 9A

Drive to oust health care law defeated By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON — A Republican drive to repeal the year-old health care law ended in party-line defeat in the Senate on Wednesday, leaving the Supreme Court to render a final, unpredictable verdict on an issue steeped in political and constitutional controversy. The vote was 47-51. Moments earlier, the Senate had agreed to make o n e re l a t i v e l y m i n o r change in the law, voting to strip out a paperwork requirement for businesses. President Barack Obama, who has vowed to veto any total repeal of his signature legislative accomplishment, has said he would accept the change. It does not directly affect health care.

WikiLeaks receives Nobel nomination

Fierce blizzard rolls in

OSLO, Norway (AP) — A Norwegian lawmaker has nominated WikiLeaks for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, saying Wednesday that its disclosures of classified documents promote world peace by holding governments accountable for their actions. The Norwegian Nobel Committee keeps candidates secret for 50 years, but those with nomination rights sometimes make their picks known. Snorre Valen, a 26-yearold legislator from Norway’s Socialist Left Party, told The Associated Press he handed in his nomination in person on Tuesday, the last day to put forth candidates. “I think it is important to raise a debate about freedom of expression and that truth is always the first casualty in war,” Valen said. “WikiLeaks wants to make governments accountable for their actions and that contributes to peace.”

Bogus tax refunds for prisoners end ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A new agreement aims to stop federal prisoners from filing for and collecting millions of dollars in bogus tax refunds from their cells. Pressure from U.S. senators in New York, Ohio, Minnesota and Florida in January led to an agreement signed Wednesday between the Internal Revenue Service and the federal Bureau of Prisons to break down bureaucratic and regulatory barriers to end the practice. The memorandum of understanding struck between the two agencies overcomes legal obstacles that hindered their own efforts and paves the way for states to make similar agreements that apply to their prisons. “The impasse needed to end, and today it’s over,” said Sen. Charles Schumer of New York.

China restricts reports on Egypt BEIJING (AP) — The protests in Egypt are about free elections and overthrowing a longtime dictator? Not according to China’s state media, which is painting them as the kind of chaos that comes with Westernstyle democracy. The recent uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia are no doubt giving pause to many authoritarian regimes around the world, but nowhere else appears to be as determined to control the message as China. Chinese censors have blocked the ability to search the term “Egypt” on microblogging sites, and user comments that draw parallels to China have been deleted from Internet forums. The People’s Daily, the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party, carried only a short report today saying Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would not stand for re-election.

Storm spreads snowy shroud over nearly half of the U.S. By DON BABWIN and MICHAEL TARM Associated Press CHICAGO — A fearsome storm spread a smothering shroud of white over nearly half the nation Wednesday, snarling transportation from Oklahoma to New England, burying parts of the Midwest under 2 feet of snow and laying down dangerously heavy ice in the Northeast that was too much for some buildings to bear. Tens of millions of people stayed home. The hardy few who ventured out faced howling winds that turned snowflakes into face-stinging needles. Chicago’s 20.2 inches of snow was the city’s third-largest amount on record. In New York’s Central Park, the pathways resembled skating rinks. The storm that resulted from two clashing air masses was, if not unprecedented, extraordinarily rare for its size and strength. “A storm that produces a swath of 20-inch snow is really something we’d see once every 50 years — maybe,” National Weather Service meteorologist Thomas Spriggs said. Across the storm’s path, lonely commuters struggled against drifts 3 and 4 feet deep in eerily silent streets, some of which had not seen a plow’s blade since the snow started a day earlier. Parkas and ski goggles normally reserved for the slopes became essential for getting to work. “This is probably the most snow I’ve seen in the last 34 years,” joked 34-yearold Chicagoan Michael George. “I saw some people

Cars are seen stranded on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive on Wednesday. A winter blizzard of historic proportions wobbled an otherwise snow-tough Chicago, stranding hundreds of drivers for up to 12 hours overnight on the city’s showcase lakeshore thoroughfare. cross-country skiing on my way to the train. It was pretty wild.” Although skies were beginning to clear by midafternoon over much of the nation’s midsection, the storm promised to leave a blast of bitter cold in its wake. Overnight temperatures in

the upper Midwest were expected to fall to minus 5 to minus 20, with wind chills as low as minus 30. The system was blamed for the deaths of at least a dozen people, including a homeless man who burned to death on New York’s Long Island as he tried to light

cans of cooking fuel and a woman in Oklahoma City who was killed while being pulled behind a truck on a sled that hit a guard rail. Airport operations slowed to a crawl nationwide, and flight cancellations reached 13,000 for the week, making this system the most disruptive so far this winter. A massive postChristmas blizzard led to about 10,000 cancellations. In the winter-wear y Northeast, thick ice collapsed several structures, including a gas station canopy on Long Island and an airplane hangar and garages near Boston. In at least two places, workers heard the structures beginning to crack and narrowly escaped. In Middletown, Conn., the entire third floor of a building failed, littering the street with bricks and snapping two trees. Acting Fire Marshal Al Santostefano said two workers fled when they heard a cracking sound. “It’s like a bomb scene,” Santostefano said. “Thank God they left the building when they did.”

Powerful cyclone hits Australia By KRISTEN GELINEAU Associated Press INNISFAIL, Australia — The most powerful storm in a century ripped across Australia’s northeast coast early today, blasting apart houses, laying waste to banana crops and leaving boats lying in the streets of windand wave-swept towns. Authorities said they were surprised to learn at daybreak that no one had been reported killed, but cautioned that bad news could eventually emerge from communities still cut off after the overnight storm, which left several thousand people homeless. Emergency services fanned out as day broke to assess the damage across a disaster zone stretching more than 190 miles in Queensland state, using chain saws to cut through trees and other debris blocking roads. Cyclone Yasi was moving inland and losing power early today. But drenching

“Nothing’s been spared. The devastation is phenomenal, like nothing I’ve ever experienced.” David Brook, the manager of a resort at Mission Beach rains were still falling, adding woes to a state where Australia’s worst flooding in decades has killed 35 people since late November. Hundreds of thousands of people spent the night huddled in evacuation centers or bunkered in their homes as the cyclone hit, packing howling winds gusting to 186 mph and causing tidal surges that swamped coastal areas. “Nothing’s been spared. The devastation is phenomenal, like nothing I’ve ever experienced,” David Brook, the manager of a resort at

World’s 1st iPad newspaper debuts By ANDREW VANACORE AP Business Writer NEW YORK — A daily newspaper designed by News Corp. exclusively for Apple’s iPad is available for $40 annually, comparable to what some big-city publishers charge monthly to deliver their print editions. The Daily debuted Associated Press Wednesday in Apple Inc.’s Eddy Cue, vice president App Store. News Corp. CEO of Apple Inc., attends the Rupert Murdoch unveiled it launch of The Daily on in New York after weeks of Wednesday in New York. anticipation.

The Daily is the latest example of how media companies are trying to mine the iPad’s popularity for new streams of revenue. Last month, a company backed by The New York Times Co., The Washington Post Co. and USA Today publisher Gannett Co. launched Ongo, a website that, for $7 a month, pulls together stories from various outlets in one place and lays them out in a clean, ad-free format. The Daily will cost 99 cents per week, substan-

tially less than the Journal’s iPad subscription rate of $3.99 per week. The Daily is also available for $39.99 annually — about the same as what the San Francisco Chronicle charges a month for home delivery and less than The New York Times’ monthly rate of about $47 in the New York City area. Murdoch says The Daily can afford a low price because it won’t have to pay for printing presses or fuel to deliver editions. It will rely on reporters in New York and

Los Angeles, as well as freelancers, to produce up to 1 0 0 p a g e s o f c ov e ra g e focused on news, sports, gossip, opinion and entertainment. The Daily will be the first newspaper whose subscriptions will be billed directly through Apple’s iTunes store. The Journal, by contrast, has been allowed to charge users of its iPad app through its own billing system. Apple typically keeps 30 percent of the revenue from sales made in its app stores.

Gun battles, blockades in Mexico GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) — Suspected drug cartel gunmen hurled grenades, burned vehicles and blocked streets in a rapid series of attacks in Mexico’s secondlargest city, authorities said Wednesday. The seven attacks within two hours late Tuesday appear to have been coordinated, and were staged by drug gangs, possibly in retaliation for the arrests of their members, said Fernando Guzman Perez, interior secretary of Jalisco state, where the city of Guadalajara is located. A policeman and two transportation workers were injured in the attacks. Assailants hurled a grenade at a police station and burned a bus and commuter trains to block streets, injuring transportation workers who tried to resist.

Snowmobiler rescued from lake CLEVELAND (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says it has rescued a snowmobiler who floated into Lake Erie from Canada after falling into the water and climbing onto a loose piece of ice about the size of a football field. Jim Turton of Colchester, Ontario, floated for about nine hours before being rescued at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday — his 45th birthday — by the crew of an icebreaking tug temporarily assigned to the Great Lakes from New London, Conn. Officials say Turton was one of four snowmobilers who fell through ice near Colchester around 11:25 p.m. Tuesday. The others climbed onto ice connected to shore. Following the rescue, Turton was transferred to a Canadian coast guard ship.

Terror attack attempt thwarted NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania (AP) — Security forces opened fire on a car loaded with explosives early Wednesday as it attempted to speed into the capital, setting off an enormous explosion and killing three suspected al-Qaidalinked militants, an official said. The al-Qaida affiliate claimed responsibility for the attempted attack in a telephone call to an Islamist website, The caller, who identified himself as a spokesman for al-Qaida’s North Africa branch, said it was targeting President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, whose government has actively pursued members of the terror cell. Defense Minister Hamadi Ould Hamadi, however, told reporters late Wednesday the target was the French Embassy and a military installation.

Manson found with phone in prison SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Cult killer Charles Manson has been caught with a smuggled cell phone for the second time. Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton said Wednesday that guards found the phone Jan. 6 at Corcoran State Prison. Manson previously was caught with a phone in March 2009. He had been calling and texting people in California, Florida, New Jersey and British Columbia. He had missed calls from Arkansas, Indiana and Massachusetts. Thornton couldn’t immediately say whom he’d been calling this time, nor how he got the phone. Manson is serving a life sentence.

NYC extending its smoking ban By VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press NEW YORK — New York City’s parks, beaches and even Times Square will be off-limits to smokers under one of the nation’s toughest anti-cigarette laws passed Wednesday by the City Council. “This summer, New Yorkers who go to our parks and beaches for some fresh air and fun will be able to breathe even cleaner air and sit on a beach not littered with cigarette butts,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said after the 36-12 vote. The smoking ban will c ov e r 1 , 7 0 0 p a rk s a n d 14 miles of public beaches plus boardwalks, marinas and pedestrian plazas like the one in the heart of Times Square. The ban goes into effect 90 days after Bloomberg signs the bill; the

“The statistics don’t lie: Secondhand smoke kills. With this bill, all New Yorkers can now breathe easier and breathe cleaner air.” Council Speaker Christine Quinn, on the extension of New York City’s smoking ban mayor has 20 days to do it. States and cities from Maine to California have banned smoking in public parks and beaches, but New York is pursuing one of the widest-reaching urban bans. Smoking is also prohibited in Los Angeles city parks and in Chicago parks with playgrounds. Supporters of the New York ban said exposure to secondhand smoke poses health risks. “The statistics don’t lie: Secondhand smoke kills,” Council Speaker Christine Quinn said. “With this bill, all

N e w Yo r k e r s c a n n o w breathe easier and breathe cleaner air.” A law banning smoking in New York City bars and restaurants went into effect in 2003. Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz voted for the latest ban despite her ambivalence about earlier anti-smoking measures that forced her outdoors in bad weather when she was a smoker. “My grandson used to tell me, ‘Grandma, you’re going to die,’” Koslowitz, now a nonsmoking legislator, said in announcing her vote.

Outside on Wednesday, the wet, raw winter weather didn’t seem to bother Cal Johnson as he strolled through the park in front of City Hall, puffing on a cigarette. “I guess I’ll have to stop smoking in this park,” said the 68-year-old retired Wall Street analyst when he was told of the anti-smoking vote. However, “in principle, I support this ban on smoking — even though I’m a smoker,” said Johnson, adding he’ll smoke on a nearby street where he lives once the new law kicks in. The expanded smoking ban will give the city’s Parks Department the power to slap violators with qualityof-life summonses, which are tickets for minor offenses like panhandling or public urination that typically carry fines of under $100.

Yemeni president won’t seek new term By AHMED AL-HAJ Associated Press SANAA, Yemen — Yemen’s U.S.-backed president, in power for more than three decades, pledged Wednesday not to seek another term in office in an apparent attempt to defuse protests inspired by Tunisia’s revolt and the turmoil in Egypt. The concession by Ali Abdullah Saleh signaled that another autocratic Arab leader once thought immune to challenge was giving way to pent-up fury and demands for reform that have swept the region. It came one day after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the target of nine days of protest calling for his ouster, made a similar pledge. Yet Saleh’s move posed questions about stability in

a nation seen by the Obama administration as a key ally in its fight against Islamic militants. Al-Qaida’s Yemeni offshoot claimed responsibility for a failed December 2009 attempt to blow up a passenger jet over the United States and an attempt last year to ship parcel bombs to the U.S. via cargo planes.

“I won’t seek to extend my presidency for another term or have my son inherit it,” Saleh told parliament. But the opposition greeted his announcement with skepticism, and there were no plans to cancel mass protests scheduled for today in the capital, Sanaa, and across the country. Obama administration

officials described Saleh’s declaration as “positive” and “significant,” but said it remained to be seen if Saleh would fulfill the pledges.

Let them eat (gold) cake Wealthy Chinese-Filipinos are snapping up rice cakes decorated with gold and diamonds to celebrate the Lunar New Year in hopes of attracting good luck in the Year of the Rabbit. The rabbit-shaped glutinous rice cakes sell for between $500 and $2,700 and are covered with 24-carat gold foil and a few small diamonds. The creator of the custom-baked sweets, Angelito Araneta Jr., says they are meant to attract wealth as well as secure good ties with friends and kin.

Shedding his shorts

There was a time when not even the president of the United States could get Eddie Favre to wear pants. Favre lost everything but the clothes he was wearing — which included Bermuda shorts — when Hurricane Katrina flattened Mississippi’s Gulf Coast in 2005. He was mayor of Bay St. Louis at the time. Favre vowed then that he would continue wearing shorts instead of long pants until his city was back on its feet. He met visiting President George W. Bush in shorts. That ended Tuesday — more than five years and five months later. The Sun Herald reports Favre showed up at the Harrison County courthouse in long pants. He was testifying as Biloxi’s financial expert in a Gulfport annexation trial. Favre served as mayor for 20 years, but decided not to seek re-election in 2009.

A Vermont woman is facing charges that she failed to return hundreds of dollars’ worth of books and videos from the library. State Police said the 35-year-old woman from Concord has been cited on a charge of theft of rented property. Police said that in November, they received a request from the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum asking troopers to contact the woman. They said she had more than 40 books and videos worth more than $460 out for more than a year. She was cited last month after the library said she did not return the items. She’s due in court in March. From wire reports

People and personalities The White Stripes announce split NEW YORK (AP) — The White Stripes are done. The groundbreaking rock duo, which helped revive and reshape a stale rock scene with their scorching, guitar-fueled, blues-tinged songs, announced Wednesday they are splitting up after more than a decade and six albums together. Jack and Meg White (who presented themselves as brother and sister but were actually exhusband and wife) said no “Behind the Music”-type troubles doomed the band. “The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health,” a statement said. “It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.” The Grammy-winning, platinum-selling band started off in Detroit in 1997. Seen mainly as the brainchild of frontman Jack White (Meg was the drummer), the band’s breakthrough came at the start of the new millennium with the albums “White Blood Cells” and 2003’s “Elephant,” with the now-classic song “Seven Nation Army.” But over the years, Jack White has focused attention on other projects, including the bands the Dead Weather and the Raconteurs, as well as his Nashville, Tenn.-based Third Man Records.

Margaret Hanson There will be a gathering (wake, party) of family and friends of Doris and friends of the family at the home of Dr. Bra d l e y K i n g , 737 Munich Drive, Bismarck, on Friday, Feb. 4, beginning at 5 p.m. People may feel free to come and go. Doris was born July 21, 1923, the daughter of Lilly and Ivar Edholm, in Braddock. She was the youngest of five sisters and one brother. She was a graduate of Braddock High School and Interstate Business College in Fargo. A f t e r c o l l e g e, D o r i s worked as the first female page for the North Dakota Legislature and later became a dental assistant in Bism a rc k , w h e re s h e m e t Robert “Bob” King at a USO dance. After returning from the war overseas, he asked her to “Marry me, or I’m going back to Pittsburgh.” With such a romantic proposal, how could she say no? They were married on May 5, 1946, in the Edholm family farmhouse, where she had grown up. They lived in Bismarck and later purchased a winter home in Sun City West, Ariz. Doris was an enthusiastic hostess renowned for her peanut brittle and rye bread. She hosted innumerable dinners, parties and coffees. She and her husband were members of local dance clubs and were always the first ones on the dance floor and the last ones to leave. Both in Bismarck and in Sun City West, she was committed to her friends and community. She spent many hours visiting friends and acquaintances in nursing homes and hospitals. She was involved in PEO, the Fortnightly Club, the Crafty Crafters, BAGA, Sun City West Episcopal Church and St . G e o r g e’s Ep i s c o p a l Church. Doris was also a talented artist who personally decorated, wallpapered, landscaped and painted her home. She was skilled in cooking, miniature painting, decoupage, gold leaf work, egg decorating, ceramics and furniture refinishing. Her work filled her own home and spilled over into her children’s. She shared her artistic talents by teaching enrichment classes at Bismarck State College. Above all, Doris was known for her great sense of humor and zest for life. She had an affinity for pink flamingoes, stylish clothing, hats, colorful jewelry and strange costumes. She went trick-or-treating as Spiderman at the age of 82 and hosted a coffee party while wearing a majorette outfit at age 85. In recent years, she would not hesitate to slide down the Superslide at church picnics and even when in the nursing home would get up and dance with the nurses. She loved anything Swedish and visited her relatives there for the first time at age 2 and the last time in her late 70s. In addition to all of the above, she lovingly raised two sons and helped care for her grandchildren, parents, nieces, nephews and friends — all of whom love her and will miss her greatly. She is survived by her two sons and one daughter-inlaw, Bradley King, Bismarck, and Robert and Ingrid King, Arvada, Colo.; her grandchildren, Sophia Kingsley, Denver, Blayne King, Arvada, Amanda King, Chicago, and Brian King, Bismarck: along

Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at Bismarck Funeral Home and Saturday one hour prior to the service at the church. Victor, the son of Gilbert and Anna (Jensen) Mahlum, was born Nov. 1, 1924. He attended Palermo School, leaving with all of the other senior boys to go to fight in World War II. Victor served in the Air Force in England during the war, doing sheet metal work to patch up bullet holes in Eighth Air Force B-17s returning from bombing runs. Out of the service, he began dating an area girl, Elaine Guinn, who had just finished putting herself through Minot State Teachers College. Victor re-enlisted for three years of occupation duty in Japan and the Philippines. After exchanging letters with her for three years, he married Elaine on Sept. 7, 1949. Following the birth of new baby daughter, Beatrice, Victor re-enlisted. Over the years, he had been stationed in Georgia, Missouri (where his son, Michael, was born), Minneapolis, Iowa, Montana, England and South Carolina. In 1966, he retired from active duty and moved to Minot to be closer to relatives. In Minot, he worked for the city and at a new Lockheed component manufacturing facility. When their children were grown and gone, Victor and Elaine moved to New Mexico, where they lived for the next 15 years, in Deming and Roswell, where he worked with a bus manufacturer. In 1988, Victor retired and they moved to Bismarck to be closer to their son and his family. Vic enjoyed being a grandparent, and Mike’s family relied on Grandpa’s handyman skills. At the age of 76, Vic even built his grandkids a play area in the backyard out of a pile of lumber, swings and a slide.

“This bill stands a zero percent chance of passing, but I do like the idea. Did you know it is way easier to get a divorce with kids involved than it is to get out of the most basic cell phone contract? Am I the only one to see that as a problem? ... I know the haters are going to be out in full force against me for this one — but I think the biggest problem we face in this country is the abandonment of the idea of family — and it isn’t going to get better until we change the attitude that it is somehow cool to be divorced.” — Michael R, on “ND measure compels one-year wait, counseling sessions to get divorced,” posted Feb. 1

“I would love to hear an explanation from supporters as to why such legislation was ever even considered. Does it really matter why someone is attacked? If I beat someone up because I think they’re ugly, is that somehow less egregious than if I beat them up ’cause they’re black, pink, or whatever? ... Assault is assault. Murder is murder. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, motive shouldn’t matter a whole lot. The only time I can see any sort of extra punishment for a crime would be if a person engaged in campaign of violence against a particular group.” — Velvet Jones, on “ND Senate rejects harsher ‘hate’ assault penalties,” posted Feb. 1

Who knows what’s best for you? North Dakota legislators are determined that the state’s citizens “get it right.” Hearings already this week looked at bills requiring a one-year wait period before a divorce could be finalized and that all public schools in the state pitch abstinence. There are bills touching on smoking rights, hate crimes and home schooling. They are bills telling people what to do with their lives, how to raise their children — and, in some cases, what they should be thinking. Not all of these bills violate individual rights or invade privacy. Some are well-founded in the law or make good common sense. But taken together, they reflect a dis-

turbing trend in which government, namely the Legislature, knows best — at least knows better than the people. One resolution goes so far as to urge the government of Turkey to stop discriminating against an Orthodox Christian leader in Istanbul. Given that level of North Dakota chutzpah, it will be interesting to see how lawmakers handle bullying in state schools. On the surface, most of these bills come from conservatives (that’s mostly what we have) who wish to control behavior that does

Legislators are telling North Dakotans what to do with their lives

VOICES OF THE PEOPLE Bills would give renters a break By REP. STEVE ZAISER Fargo If you are a renter and live in North Dakota, you might wish to check with your state legislators and ascertain how they voted in the North Dakota legislative session on any or all of the three bills addressing the pass-through of tax relief from landlords to the lessees of the rental property. Sen. Carolyn Nelson, Rep. Eliot Glassheim and I introduced bills in the North Dakota Legislature that would provide tax relief to renters. Up until now, individuals in the state of North Dakota who rent their home or apartment have been left out of the benefits of tax relief. Any of the bills addressing this issue would change this. Renters have not experienced the benefits of property tax relief despite North Dakota having a large renter population. Approximately 55 percent of Fargo residents live in rental properties. Statewide, approximately 36 percent of the state’s residents live in renter-occupied housing. One of the reasons given by many as a reason to oppose these bills on

not reflect “core” values; however, liberals are party to this action when it comes to legislation related to antismoking causes and establishing the category of hate crimes. Frankly, the Legislature has before it a number of profoundly important issues: infrastructure for the oil patch, diversion for Red River flood water at Fargo, Devils Lake funding, financing of education at all levels and adapting to federal changes in health care, to highlight a few of the biggies. There’s important stuff to do, rather

renter-occupied property tax relief is that the owner or developer of the rental property has taken a risk in putting his or her money and efforts into constructing the property and they ought to retain benefits provided. There is a significant problem in this line of thought, and that is that property owners are now making a profit on tax relief if any landlord has not returned the property tax received this last year. Making a profit on tax relief seems to fly in the face

than telling people what they can or cannot do in their personal lives. The complaint isn’t about the naming of a “state bug” or teaching a civics lesson by debating a particular issue. The complaint is about grabbing a citizen by the ear, shaking him and setting that recalcitrant on the “straight and narrow.” It’s about lawmakers legislating their personal beliefs, often about family and faith, for the rest of us. It’s not that we North Dakotans are so bad, but that legislators think they can make us better. Lawmakers should be hyper critical of any bill that proposes to tell people how to act or think and, nine times out of 10, should reject such legislation.

tive elected by the people of North Dakota has now decided the state’s voters are too stupid to know what they are voting on and they as a representative know more than the voters. This is a slippery slope into a government where a vote is meaningless. We, the people of North Dakota, weighed the pros and cons of Measure 3 — the pros and cons of preventing death or trying to treat dying people. And we spoke with our vote. We voted for prevention. Now our “representatives” — people we elected to represent our wishes in the Legislature — have decided we are just too stupid to know what we are voting on. While I agree we need more physicians in North Dakota, gutting Measure 3 is not the way.

A slippery slope into government

Is he the answer for social conservatives? WASHINGTON — In 1994, when Rick Santorum was a second-term Pennsylvania congressman seeking a U.S. Senate seat, a columnist asked him how he was going to win. “Guns,” he replied serenely. Pennsylvania’s legions of deer hunters do not use assault weapons, which President Bill Clinton was trying to ban, but the hunters suspected that this, like Clinton’s wife’s health care plan, reflected a pattern of assaults on liberty. Santorum, then 36, won by 87,210 votes — 87,210 hunters? — out of 3,384,172 cast, becoming the first conservative elected senator from Pennsylvania since 1952. “Never,” he says today, “underestimate the power of the social issues.” He probably will test that power — and the theory, which he rejects, that economic anxieties have marginalized those issues — by seeking the Republicans’ 2012 presidential nomination.


Santorum had one of the Senate’s most conservative voting records and was floor manager of the most important legislation of the 1990s, the 1996 welfare reform, which Clinton vetoed twice before signing. In 2000, Santorum won a second term with 52 percent, and was elected third-ranking Republican leader in the Senate. In 2006, a miserable year for Republicans, he lost 59-41. How can he, having lost his last election, run for president? Isn’t he a spent political force? Well, was Richard Nixon defunct after losing the California gubernatorial race in 1962? Santorum has made nine trips to New Hampshire, where he has hired a chairman of his state political action committee and a

Rep. Rick Santorum of Pa. wants to test the power of social issues

state director, and is returning soon. He has been that many times to two other early delegate-selection states, Iowa and South Carolina, and has other trips to those states scheduled. Seven reasons why he has not committed to running are his children, ranging in ages from 19 to 2. The Santorums take parenting very seriously: All but their youngest child have been partially homeschooled. The youngest, Bella, is severely disabled with Trisomy 18, a condition caused by a chromosomal defect that prevents more than 90 percent of its victims from reaching their first birthdays. About his presidential run, he says, “My wife is sane, therefore she doesn’t want me to do this.” But both she and he are dedicated to trying to reform today’s abortion culture that is increasingly comfortable with treating inconvenient lives, including those like Bella’s, as disposable. Santorum appears four to six times a week on the Fox News and Fox Business channels, which are watched — particularly the former — by much of the Republican nominating electorate. And for three

hours every Friday, he hosts William Bennett’s nationally syndicated radio program, which also has a mostly conservative audience. Santorum does not ignore economic issues, but as a relentless ethicist, he recasts those as moral issues: “What is European socialism but modern-day monarchy that ‘takes care’ of the people?” He is, of course, correct that America’s debt crisis is, at bottom, symptomatic of a failure of self-control, a fundamental moral failing. The first event of the nominating process, Iowa’s Republican caucuses, are, Santorum says, a bifurcated event. One part concerns born-again and evangelical Christians, who are 60 percent of caucus participants. The other part involves everyone else. This is why Mike Huckabee won Iowa in 2008, and why in 1988 Pat Robertson finished a strong second to Bob Dole and ahead of George H.W. Bush. Three people who might have competed, or still might compete, with Santorum for voters intense about social issues include Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, who has decided

against running, and Huckabee, who is doing well as a Fox News contributor. And Sarah Palin, another Fox luminary, would have the most to lose financially from running. Santorum thinks “the left is trying to goad her into it,” hoping she would be weak among the independent voters who decide most elections. Tim Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota, a state contiguous with Iowa, is running hard and has published a book with a strong religious theme, but Santorum doubts that Pawlenty has the passion requisite for connecting with “values voters.” That is a Santorum theory. Here is another: If unemployment is still above 9 percent in 2012, almost any Republican can win, and if there is a convincing recovery, the party had better nominate someone who can energize its base. That is only a theory, but this is a fact: Social conservatives are much of that base, are feeling neglected and are looking for someone like Santorum. (George Will writes for the Washington Post.

Journalists attacked, detained Shots fired By DAVID BAUDER and CHRIS TORCHIA Associated Press NEW YORK — In multiple incidents, journalists covering Egypt’s unrest were pummeled, hit with pepper spray, shouted at and threatened by loyalists to President Hosni Mubarak as the scene at anti-government demonstrations suddenly turned ugly. “For the first time in the last few days, we can feel what dictatorship really means,” said Lara Logan of CBS News, who said she was effectively trapped in an Alexandria hotel. When a CBS camera crew attempted to take pictures of violence between pro- and anti-government crowds, they were marched back to their hotel at gunpoint, Logan said. The CBS journalists were only allowed to leave without cameras, and were watched wherever they went. Mubarak’s opponents were becoming afraid to talk to journalists, she said. Several reporters told similar stories of what the Committee to Protect Journalists described as a series of deliberate attacks. The New York-based CPJ called on the Egyptian military to provide protection for reporters. Veteran international cor-

re s p o n d e n t C h r i s t i a n e Amanpour, now working for ABC News, said she witnessed Mubarak supporters arriving at Cairo’s Tahrir Square in what appeared to be coordinated fashion in the early afternoon and sensed the mood changing. “The thing about this is you can smell it,” she said. “I just wondered what this was going to bode for the day.” She soon found out. She was trying to interview a Mubarak supporter when she was surrounded by several young men shouting that “we hate Americans” and “go to hell.” When it was clear the situation wouldn’t improve, Amanpour and her ABC colleagues got in a car to leave. The car was surrounded by men banging on the sides and windows, and a rock was thrown through the windshield, shattering glass on the occupants. They escaped without injury. Blaming the press when things are going bad is a “time-honored and sad tradition,” she said. CNN’s Anderson Cooper said he, a producer and camera operator were set upon by people who began punching them and trying to break their camera. Another CNN reporter, Hala Gorani, said she was shoved against a fence when demonstrators rode in on horses and

camels, and feared she was going to get trampled. “This is incredibly fastmoving,” Cooper said. “I’ve been in mobs before and I’ve been in riots, but I’ve never had it turn so quickly.” A journalist for Dubaibased Al-Arabiya television suffered a concussion, said media watchdog International Press Institute, citing Randa Abul-Azm, the station’s bureau chief in Cairo. The attacks appeared to reflect a pro-government view that many media outlets are sympathetic to protesters who want Mubarak to quit now rather than complete his term. O n Tu e s d a y n i g h t , Mubarak pledged not to run in elections later this year, and the army urged people to cease demonstrating. In Wednesday’s fighting, security forces did not intervene as thousands of people hurled stones and firebombs at each other for hours in and around the capital’s Tahrir Square. Fox Business Channel’s Ashley Webster reported that security officials burst into a room where he and a camera operator were observing the demonstration from a balcony. They forced the camera inside the room. He called the situation “very unnerving” and said via Twitter that he was trying to lay low.

Phil’s spring forecast Two years ago, Phil’s forecast also acknowledged the Steelers’ Super Bowl XLIII win the night before. This year, Sunday’s game was mentioned in the forecast but no winner was predicted between the Steelers and the Green Bay Packers, who meet in Dallas for Super Bowl XLV. “The Steelers are going to the Super Bowl,” Mike Johnson, vice president of the Inner Circle, said just before the forecast was read, drawing cheers from the clearly partisan crowd gathered on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill in

this borough of about 6,100 residents some 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2, the Christian holiday of Candlemas, winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early. In reality, Pennsylvania’s prophetic rodent doesn’t see much of anything. The result is actually decided in advance by 14 members of

The celebration usually draws 10,000 to 15,000 spectators when it falls on a weekd a y, G r o u n d h o g c l u b spokesman Luke Webber said. The area was under a winter weather warning and while heavier snows and sleet never materialized, rain falling in about 35-degree temperatures made for a below-average crowd, said Webber, who offered no specific estimate.

into the square on horses and camels brandishing whips while others rained firebombs from rooftops in what appeared to be an orchestrated assault against protesters trying to topple Egypt’s leader of 30 years. Three people died in that earlier violence and 600 were injured. The protesters accused M u b a r a k ’s r e g i m e o f unleashing a force of paid thugs and plainclothes police to crush their unprecedented nine-dayold movement, a day after the 82-year-old president refused to step down. They showed off police ID badges they said were wrested from their attackers. Some government workers said their employers ordered them into the streets. Mustafa el-Fiqqi, a top official from the ruling National Democratic Party, told The Associated Press that businessmen connected to the ruling party were responsible for what happened. The notion that the state may have coordinated violence against protesters, who had kept a peaceful vigil in Tahrir Square for five days, prompted a sharp rebuke from the Obama administration. “If any of the violence is instigated by the government, it should stop immediately,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. The clashes marked a dangerous new phase in Egypt’s upheaval: the first significant violence between government supporters and opponents. The crisis took a sharp turn for the worse almost immediately after Mubarak rejected the calls for him to give up power or leave the country, stubbornly proclaiming he would die on Egyptian soil. His words were a blow to the protesters. They also suggest that authorities want to turn back the clock to the tight state control enforced before the protests began.

Mubarak’s supporters turned up on the streets Wednesday in significant numbers for the first time. Some were hostile to journalists and foreigners. Two Associated Press correspondents and several other journalists were roughed up in Cairo. State TV had reported that foreigners were caught distributing anti-Mubarak leaflets, apparently trying to depict the movement as foreignfueled. After midnight, 10 hours after the clashes began, the two sides were locked in a standoff at a street corner, with the anti-Mubarak protesters hunkered behind a line of metal sheets hurling firebombs back and forth with government backers on the rooftop above. The rain of bottles of flaming gasoline set nearby cars and wreckage on the sidewalk ablaze. The scenes of mayhem were certain to add to the fear that is already running high in this capital of 18 million people after a weekend of looting and lawlessness and the escape of thousands of prisoners from jails in the chaos. Soldiers surrounding Tahrir Square fired occasional shots in the air throughout the day but did not appear to otherwise intervene in the fierce clashes and no uniformed police were seen. Most of the troops took shelter behind or inside the armored vehicles and tanks stationed at the entrances to the square. “Why don’t you protect us?” some protesters shouted at the soldiers, who replied they did not have orders to do so and told people to go home. “The army is neglectful. They let them in,” said Emad Nafa, a 52-year-old among the protesters, who for days had showered the military with affection for its neutral stance. Some of the worst street battles raged near the Egyptian Museum at the edge of

Continued from 1A the square. Pro-government rioters blanketed the rooftops of nearby buildings and hurled bricks and firebombs onto the crowd below — in the process setting a tree ablaze inside the museum grounds. Plainclothes police at the building entrances prevented antiMubarak protesters from storming up to stop them. The two sides pummeled each other with chunks of concrete and bottles at each of the six entrances to the sprawling plaza, where 10,000 anti-Mubarak protesters tried to fend off more than 3,000 attackers who besieged them. Some on the pro-government side waved machetes, while the square’s defenders filled the air with a ringing battlefield din by banging metal fences with sticks. In one almost medieval scene, a small contingent of pro-Mubarak forces on horseback and camels rushed into the anti-government crowds, trampling several people and swinging whips and sticks. Protesters dragged some riders from their mounts, throwing them to the ground and beating their faces bloody. The horses and camels appeared to be ones used to give tourists rides around Cairo. Dozens of men and women pried up pieces of the pavement with bars and ferried the piles of ammunition in canvas sheets to their allies at the front. Others directed fighters to streets needing reinforcements. The protesters used a subway station as a makeshift prison for the attackers they managed to catch. They tied the hands and legs of their prisoners and locked them inside. People grabbed one man who was bleeding from the head, hit him with their sandals and threw him behind a closed gate. Some protesters wept and prayed in the square where only a day before they had held a joyous, peaceful

Noise vote nears the report,” Bullinger said. He said typically officers are dispatched to an address which the noise is coming from. “Contact is made with someone there and they are advised of the complaint,” Bullinger said. The final commission vote on the noise law is scheduled Feb. 15. Mandan City Commissioners passed its first reading of the draft Jan. 18 with a 3-2 vote. Commissioners Dot Frank and Dennis Rohr voted no. The noise debate goes back some 18 months, when residents in southeast Mandan collected signatures complaining that bars near them created loud outdoor

music that disturbed them and their children late at night. The city commission responded by forming a joint committee made of residents and bar operators. The committee, headed by commissioner Tom Jackson, reached an impasse after several months of trying to find a reasonable compromise. Commissioners followed up with attempts to localize an ordinance to that section of town and attach the noise limits to certain liquor licenses in town and work out a separate agreement with one bar’s owners. One bar owner spent several thousand dollars building infrastructure to contain

the sound levels, for attorney fees and for measuring sound coming from his business himself. No consensus came from anyone involved in the process — residents, establishments or commissioners. In the fall of 2010, frustrated residents turned in enough petition signatures to place a citywide noise law on a special Nov. 2 city ballot. Its wording was modeled after Bismarck’s code. Although 57 percent of the voters approved the noise law, its results and the ballot were thrown out. A South Central District Court judge agreed with bar owner and attorney Richard Baer’s legal challenge that

the paperwork for the petitions had not been filed properly. The Mandan City Commission decided to vote on a law that mirrors the November ballot wording because a majority of city residents favored the law in the special election. Ma yo r Ti m He l b l i n g repeatedly expressed doubts that the noise ordinance will solve residents’ noise complaints, but favored it in January because a majority of residents voted for it last fall. The three commissioners that voted on it — Helbling, Sandra Tibke and Jackson argued the law may be a start, and amendments may be needed later.

Jackson said he is unaware of any changes to the draft and expects to votes in favor of it at this point. “I will let the debate continue,” he said. “This is what a majority of voters wanted. I look at it as ‘straw poll,’” he said. Still, not all commissioners stand by the ordinance. “It’s going to have enforcement problems,” said Rohr, also a retired Mandan police chief. He contends there are already existing laws in the books that help officers deal with noise issues. He said officers can their use own common sense and discretion. “I don’t see this as a tool to deal with the noise issue,” Rohr said of the draft law.

Continued from 1A Sounds exempt from the law are Independence Day week activities, race track events, Buggies-n-Blues and band shell events. Rohr said many of those sounds disturb people. “Most people I talk to think this is ridiculous once I explain it to them, even if they voted for it,” Rohr said. Bullinger said the law is a start. “Repeated complaints, such as those received in 2009 and 2010, can be addressed in the courts or by the city commission,” he said of using the ordinance in the future.

current technology. But what Kepler is finding in distant parts of the galaxy could be applied to exploring closer stars, astronomers say. “Our grandchildren will have to decide what’s the next step,” Borucki said at a NASA news conference. “Do they want to go there? Do they want to send a robot?” Before Wednesday, the count of confirmed planets outside the solar system stood at 519. That means Kepler could triple the number. And those findings are from Kepler’s scanning of just one four-hundredth of the

night sky, so the actual number of planets out there is presumably hundreds of times greater, Borucki said. That is exciting to astronomers, since the more planets there are, the greater the odds that life exists elsewhere in the universe. Ya l e University astronomer Debra Fischer, who wasn’t part of the Kepler team but serves as an outside expert for NASA, said the new information “gives us a much firmer footing” to hope for worlds that could harbor life. “I feel different today, knowing these new Kepler

results, than I did a week ago,” Fischer said. She said Kepler “has blown the lid off of everything we know about extrasolar planets.” Another outside astronomer, Lisa Kaltenegger of Harvard University, called the findings “exciting good news.” Kepler also found that there are many more relatively small planets than there are giant planets. That is encouraging, too: Astronomers think a planet needs to be solid — rocky like Earth or Mars — for life to develop. And very large planets are

Continued from 1A unlikely to be solid; they are more prone to be gas behemoths like Jupiter. Sixty-eight of the planet candidates Kepler found are considered Earth-sized, including the first ones ever discovered to be smaller than Earth. An additional 288 planets were less than twice the size of Earth, which is still in that optimum zone for life. Only five of the 54 potentially habitable celestial bodies are close to the size of Earth, while the rest approach the gassy girths of Neptune or Jupiter, Borucki said.

Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Republican repeal movement would “take away a child’s right to get health insurance and instead give insurance companies the right to use asthma or diabetes as an excuse to take away that care.” “It would kick kids off their parents’ health insurance,” Reid said. “It would take away seniors’ rights to a free well-

ness check.” Democrats also countered with the proposed repeal of the law’s requirement that businesses, charities, and state and local governments file income tax forms every time they purchase $600 or more in goods. It was approved 81-17, after Republicans pointed out it had originally been their idea. Across the street from the

Capitol, Democrats convened a Judiciary Committee hearing to solicit testimony on the constitutionality of the law they passed and Obama signed months ago. “Many who argue the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional are the same people who condemn judicial activism,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who presided. “ They are pushing the Supreme Court to strike

Continued from 1A down this law because they could not defeat it in Congress.” Republicans were scathing in response. “The sensible process would have been to have held a hearing on the law’s constitutionality before the bill passed, not after,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa. “Like Alice in Wonderland, sentence first, verdict afterward.”

Alien planets? newfound celestial bodies are not confirmed as planets yet, but Borucki estimates 80 percent of them will eventually be verified. At least one other astronomer believes Kepler could be 90 percent accurate. After that, it’s another big step in proving that a confirmed planet has some of the basic conditions needed to support life, such as the proper size, composition, temperature and distance from its star. More advanced aspects of habitability such as atmospheric conditions and the presence of water and carbon

require telescopes that aren’t built yet. Just because a planet is in the habitable zone doesn’t mean it has life. Mars is a good example of that. And even if some these planets are found to contain life, it may not be intelligent life; it could be bacteria or mold or some kind of life form people can’t even imagine. All the celestial bodies Kepler looks at are in our Milky Way galaxy, but they are so far away that traveling there is not a realistic option. In some cases it would take many millions of years with

Senate GOP loses in advance their attempt at total repeal would fall short. But they also said they had accomplished an objective of forcing rank and file Democrats to take a position on an issue that reverberated in the 2010 campaign and may play a role in 2012. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said the vote marked an opportunity for Democrats who voted for the bill last year “to listen to

those who have desperately been trying to get your attention.” “To say, yes, maybe my vote for this bill was a mistake, and that we can do better,” McConnell said. Democrats worked to minimize any political repercussions, a concern for a party already acutely aware it must defend 23 seats — and its shrunken Senate majority — in the 2012 elections.

Panel hears trespass bill By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune The House Judiciary Committee took no action Wednesday on a bill designed to provide land and property owners immunity for injuries to trespassers. The bill, HB1452, would not change existing state law, but “freeze and codify” it, said Mark Behrens, who testified in INSIDE favor of the bill. More from the state Behrens, an attorney Legislature, 2B, 6B and lobbyist for the American Tort Reform Association, told the committee the bill could head off potential lawsuits if trespassers were injured on private property.

But some lawmakers said North Dakota law does that now. Re p. L o i s D e l m o re, D-Grand Forks, questioned whether such lawsuits were prevalent enough to warrant the change. “I think the law is in a state where it needs to be now,” Delmore said. “Why can’t we address the situation when there is a situation to address?” Rep. Blair Thoreson, R-Fargo, introduced the bill, and when questioned by committee members, including Delmore, said he was not aware

of any cases in which trespassers sued landowners for injuries. Behrens said the American Law Institute, an independent group consisting of lawyers, judges and law professors, issues restatements of state laws that could put property and landowners at risk in the event of injury to trespassers. He said trespassers generally have no rights to sue unless a landowner does something intentional to harm them or if the landowner knows trespassers are present and does not take reasonable care to prevent injury. The bill as written would exclude landowner immunity for injury or death to children 18 and younger, under certain conditions. Continued on 6B

Cold-weather respite

Burleigh County officials met for the first time last week to receive early projections for flooding and planning. We learned there is a strong possibility for some flooding at Apple Creek near Menoken, Beaver Creek near Linton and the Knife River through Beulah. At 1:30 p.m. today, Morton County officials will do the same at the commission room of the Morton County Courthouse. Joel Rostberg, administrative assistant for the Morton County Emergency Management Office, said they will receive reports from the National Weather Service, do preparation work and confirm contact information if flooding becomes a risk in the coming weeks.

Zoning input The city of Bismarck will host a public meeting Feb. 10 about proposed amendments for ordinances to the Downtown Core and Downtown Fringe zoning districts. The public meeting will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the City/County Building. County officials will brief the city about possible revisions at 4 p.m. The proposed amendments would modify portions of the ordinance and are intended to clarify language as it pertains to the design standards for the rehabilitation of existing buildings and construction of new buildings. The city wants comments from downtown property owners, architects, developers, business owners and citizens. For more information contact Jason Tomanek in the Planning Division at 355-1849 or visit

Lincoln liquor The Lincoln City Council may give final approval today to its first ordinance giving the city authority to act administratively when establishments serve and sell alcohol to minors. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln City Hall. It sets fines, liquor license suspensions and license revocations for businesses. Its most recent draft, called for a $500 fine for the first offense, a $1,000 fine for the second offense and up to a sevenday suspension of the license, a $1,500 fine for the third offense with up to a 30-day suspension. A public hearing with the council will be held for the second and third offenses. A few establishment operators in Lincoln contested the draft law, saying an unreliable worker could put them out of business by failing to confirm a buyer’s age.


There are two yurts in the North Dakota state parks system at the moment, with more to be put up this year. Both yurts are at Cross Ranch State Park near Hensler and are available and furnished for public use year-round.

Winter is what you make of it Park director wants to make it more fun, for everyone By LAUREN DONOVAN Bismarck Tribune Mark Zimmerman is one of those different dudes who enjoys winter camping when temperatures are below zero. Now that he’s director of the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department, he’s in a perfect position to make the winter months a time of red-cheeked recreation for everyone. He’s got some perfect places in mind, too; places in the state’s park system that offer cozy protection from wind and scenery to spare.

short or long excursions. For anyone who’d like to try the sport but doesn’t have skis, the Cross Ranch will soon have a couple dozen pair available for rentals. “The Cross Ranch has never had great summer visitation. There are no electrical hookups because of an agreement with the Nature Conservancy to keep it fairly primitive. But why can’t it be a great winter park?” Zimmerman said. Besides skiing and snow-shoeing, he envisions flooding an old feedlot area to create a skating rink, providing sleigh rides around the park and special opportunities like

catered dinners in the Art Link log cabin. Winter amenities were already stepped up a notch with the recent addition of two yurts at Cross Ranch to complement the three cabins available for rent. Those are so popular, Zimmerman said he plans to bring in one more yurt and locate it out in the backcountry for park visitors who’d like to hike or ski into a remote setting and create their own warmth and light by burning wood and lighting lanterns. “These would be for people Continued on 6B

State Sen. Randy Christmann, R-Hazen, speaks during a hearing on Wednesday in Bismarck.

In a bid for closer oversight of North Dakota’s state pension funds, a Republican Senate leader wants to replace four public employee and teacher representatives with lawmakers on a state board that oversees retirement investments. Sen. Randy Christmann, R-Hazen, the assistant GOP Senate majority leader, said the changes would help the Legislature keep

better track of the funds, which are seeking larger contributions from their taxpayer-financed employers to help recoup recent investment losses. “I think that we have a responsibility to our constituents to, as a group, know more about” the state pension system, Christmann said Wednesday during a North Dakota Senate Industry, Business and Labor Committee hearing on his bill. The panel on Wednesday examined Christmann’s proposal and a

separate bill, introduced by Sen. David Hogue, R-Minot, that would create a new board to oversee investments for a newly created “Legacy Fund,” which is a trust fund for surplus oil tax collections. The committee did not make an immediate recommendation on either bill. Analysts estimate the Legacy Fund, which the state’s voters created by approving a constitutional amendment last November, will have more than $600 million in oil Continued on 6B

Thief only gets door of skidsteer Someone may have been trying to steal a skidsteer one piece at a time but got away with only a door. Bismarck Police Sgt. Mark Buschena said a 29-year-old Bismarck man reported the door off his skidsteer was stolen between Jan. 19 and Tuesday. The machine had been parked on private property on the 4900 block of Cornice Drive at a construction site. The man initially thought the door had blown off in the wind, but noticed that wires leading to a wiper on the door had been cut, Buschena said. The door was valued at $1,500. — Jenny Michael

100 UND hockey jerseys stolen WEST FARGO (AP) — West Fargo police say someone broke into a sporting goods store and took about $6,000 worth of University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux hockey jerseys. Officer Rhonda Jorgensen says 100 of the jerseys were stolen from Valley Sporting Goods late Monday or early Tuesday. UND is retiring the nickname under an agreement with the NCAA, which considers the Fighting Sioux moniker offensive to American Indians.

N.D. pastors plead guilty to DUI FARGO (AP) — Two pastors at a Fargo church pleaded guilty Wednesday to driving under the influence. A judge ordered 44-year-old Jeffery Sandgren and 50year-old Kristopher Gorden to pay fines and fees totaling $625. They also must complete a chemical dependency evaluation and attend a victim impact panel. Fargo police arrested the Olivet Lutheran Church pastors early in the morning on Jan. 13 when Gorden’s vehicle slid into a snow bank and Sandgren pulled up in another vehicle to help.

Bus driver arrested on DUI suspicion WEST FARGO (AP) — Police said the driver of a school bus in West Fargo was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of driving under the influence. The bus went off the road and got stuck in a snow bank. Police said the driver failed a field sobriety test and was taken to jail to be booked. No students were on the bus when it went into a ditch near an elementary school around 2:30 p.m.

Bills deal with political spending By TREVOR BORN Associated Press North Dakota legislators began reviewing a proposal Wednesday that would establish rules for tracking corporate political giving in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year that lifted contribution restrictions. The court decision allows corporations and labor unions to spend money supporting candidates without their consent. Similar bills in the North Dakota House and Senate lay out reporting guidelines for those contributions, which must be quickly reported to the secretary of state. “The Supreme Court has said incorporated units have the right to free speech, but we have the right to make them stand up and be counted,” said Sen. Mac Schneider, D-Grand Forks, the sponsor of the Senate bill. Schneider’s proposal would require groups making independent expenditures to file a detailed report with the secretary of state

“I think the consensus after the Supreme Court decision was, if you can’t prohibit certain spending, you can still require disclosure.” John Bjornson, an attorney for the Legislative Council within 48 hours of the contribution, listing the amount and all political contributions in the past year. Since the Supreme Court decision in January 2010, the top five independent contributors have spent more than $300 million on political advocacy, Schneider said. Target Corp. faced a wellpublicized backlash this summer when it disclosed donations to a political action committee that backed a candidate who opposed gay marriage. The donations angered some Target employees and prompted a boycott. “I think the consensus after the Supreme Court decision was, if you can’t prohibit certain spending, you

can still require disclosure,” said John Bjornson, an attorney for the Legislative Council, which is the research arm of the state Legislature. Secretary of State Al Jaeger and his top deputy, Jim Silrum, spoke in favor of Schneider’s bill Wednesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. He said it was more focused on requiring disclosure from groups that make independent contributions. The Judiciary Committee is holding Schneider’s bill, SB2319, for additional work. The House bill, HB1414, is being reviewed by the House’s Political Subdivisions Committee, which held a hearing on the measure last week.

E85 sales more than double Sales of E85 fuel in North Dakota last year more than doubled. State officials credit a grant program for retailers who install so-called blender pumps. Gov. Jack Dalrymple says that between January and November last year, about 582,000 gallons of the fuel mix that is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline were sold. That was up from about 250,000 gallons in the same period the previous year. Dalrymple says nearly 120 blender

pumps have been installed in 27 communities through the program set up by the Legislature two years ago. The communities range from Fargo, the state’s largest city, to Fairmount, a town of just a few hundred people. The state program provides retailers with a $5,000 grant, in addition to tax incentives, for each blender pump installed. — Associated Press

UND offers online Norwegian course

Draft looks at biotech crops on refuges

GRAND FORKS (AP) — University of North Dakota officials say an online Norwegian language course is attracting people from as far as Maine, Texas and the Canadian province of Alberta. The university already offered Spanish classes online. UND Norwegian program coordinator Melissa Gjellstad said the strong Scandinavian heritage in North Dakota and Minnesota made UND the right place to start an online Norwegian course. UND plans to offer an online Norwegian 102 class in the fall.

DENVER (AP) — Federal officials have completed a draft environmental assessment of the potential effects of planting Roundup Ready crops on land in the National Wildlife Refuge System. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says farming on those lands can help control noxious weeds

before those areas can be reseeded with native plants. In 2009, farmed refuge system land in a region covering Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming included about 6,175 acres of genetically modified corn and soybeans.

The Fish and Wildlife Service says it’s taking another look at the use of those crops, now that more farmers are using them. The draft assessment proposes continuing to allow the crops. The public can comment on the draft through March 4.

Play part of Prayer Day activities David Barker, a professor at Arizona State University, will share his experience with forgiveness as the featured speaker at the annual Prayer Day at the University of Mary today. In a one-man play, Barker relates the experience of him and his sister being shot by his brother-in-law. “This year’s speaker, David Barker, who will perform his one-act play ‘Dodging Bullets’ with its themes of forgiveness and redemption will both entertain and move you,” said Kristi Wanner, director of Campus Ministry at the University of Mary. “Prayer Day is a great opportunity for this region to come together and experience faith and healing.” Barker’s Prayer Day performance begins at 11 a.m. today in the McDowell Activity Center. A lunch will be provided at noon, followed by workshops at 1 p.m. and Eucharistic liturgy at 2:15 p.m., with Bishop Paul Zipfel presiding. University of Mary students are admitted free to the event. For others, registration may be completed at the Activity Center beginning at 10 a.m. The fee for the entire day (including lunch) is $10, which can be paid at the registration table on Prayer Day. Barker’s play follows him through three experiences: the encounter with his brother-in-law, his father’s emergency surgery and his mother’s dementia. The shooting happened when Barker went with his sister and niece to pick up his niece’s asthma medication. “I went along to protect my sister,” Barker said. “We approached the house and Dr. Jack appeared at the front door and ordered me to leave. Dr. Jack is a high-strung control freak; so when I refused to leave he attacked me. We grappled briefly, and he ran back into the house. My sister, niece and I were in complete shock. He came back with a gun and began to fire.” For more information, contact Wanner at 355-8102 or

Guilty feelings not unusual for abuse victims Dear Annie: I am a 30-something woman and was in a relationship with another woman for two years. “Angie” was physically, emotionally and mentally abusive toward me. She decided many times to break off our relationship, but would then realize she missed me. She would email, text, call, send letters, etc., until I gave in and we would date again. Then the abuse would start back up, and she would leave me again so I would be “safe.” This offand-on-again business took almost as big a toll on my self-esteem and self-worth as the physical abuse. We currently have not spoken in four months, but in the past three days, Angie has twice managed to be where I am. When I see her in unplanned ways like this, I have anxiety attacks. She knows it upsets me because she apologizes, even

happiness of the abuser and the success of the relationship, and when you take the necessary steps to extricate yourself, guilt is a common consequence. We are glad you are getting back into counseling. It will help you realize that Angie’s feelings are no longer your concern.


Cousin squabbles though she obviously is making it a point to be in my presence. I talked to my lawyer, and he is going to send her a threatening letter saying to refrain from all contact or a restraining order will be filed. I know I need to protect myself and my sanity, and yes, I am getting into counseling again. But I also feel sadness over losing the relationship. How can I stop feeling guilty for hurting her? — Confused Dear Confused: Many abuse victims feel responsible for both the

Dear Annie: My cousin and my best friend got into a major screaming match that almost came to blows. My cousin thinks “Josie” got her fired. I do not believe this is true. In addition, they both think the other one hates them. I know my cousin is jealous of the time I spend with Josie, and vice versa. Also, they both have fairly strong personalities and are highly opinionated. The problem is, we are all booked to go on a twoweek vacation together next sum-

breaks my heart to know people are not considered “survivors” because they didn’t receive radiation or chemo. Getting the cancer out of your body makes you a survivor no matter what.

It is their fight, after all, and getting too involved will only make things worse. But I don’t want my only vacation to be full of stress and misery.

It also might be worth losing a deposit to cancel or reschedule your reservation.

The effects of drugs on bone fractures DEAR DR. GOTT: I have been taking Boniva for almost five years. Could I or should I stop now? I’ve heard there is some discussion about this. I’m 74. Your opinion, please. DEAR READER: Boniva is prescribed to slow bone loss, increase bone mass, and treat or prevent osteoporosis in women, a condition in which bones become thin, weaken, and are subject to easy fracture. T h e Fo o d a n d Dr u g Administration issued a warning to physicians and their patients on Oct. 14, 2010, regarding an increased risk of bone fractures of the thigh with bone-strengthening bisphosphonates such as Boniva, Fosamax and Actonel. The report went on t o i n d i c a t e i t re m a i n s unclear whether drugs in the


category trigger thigh fractures, but because of the potential connection, labeling now warns of the possibility. It is understood an individual who falls or is in an automobile accident might experience a fracture, but these findings suggest breaks without any degree of trauma involved. Rarely, osteonecrosis (destruction and death of bone tissue) of the jaw has been linked to bisphosphonate use. At this stage, there are no guidelines as to how long a

patient should remain on the drugs, but the FDA stated the fractures “may be related to the use of bisphosphonates for longer than five years, but patients should continue treatment unless directed otherwise by their physician.” My guess is that you have undergone testing such as a DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) that measures the density of bones in a re a s m o s t c o m m o n l y affected by osteoporosis. Other tests less commonly used include computerized tomography (CT) or ultrasound sonography, which u t i l i ze h i g h - f re q u e n c y sound waves to view internal structures. If it is time for another X-ray, your physician can determine whether the Boniva is working for you. If both of you feel it’s

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am 89 and in good health, but I no longer have a sense of smell. Can it be restored? D E A R R E A D E R : The answer depends on the cause. Some causes result in temporary loss, while others, unfortunately, result in permanent loss. If you have had a recent cold, sinus infection or hay fever, the condition will likely clear on its own within a reasonable period of time. If you suffer from nasal polyps, a tumor or nasal deformity,

surgical correction may be necessary to remove the lesions or correct the abnormality and may restore your sense of smell. Medical conditions such as diabetes, Huntington’s disease or hormonal disturbances should be ruled out. Speak with your primarycare physician for his or her opinion. If you don’t meet with success, request a referral to an otolaryngologist (ear-nose-and-throat specialist), who can help you sort through this annoying problem.

Solar power reaches the coal fields of West Virginia MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A group devoted to creating alternative energy jobs in Central Appalachia is building a first for West Virginia’s southern coal fields region this week — a set of rooftop solar panels, assembled by unemployed and underemployed coal miners and contractors. The 40- by 15-foot solar array going up on a doctor’s office in Williamson is significant not for its size but for its location: It signals to an area long reliant on mining that there can be life beyond coal. People were skeptical when the idea was first floated about a year ago, said Nick Getzen, a spokesman

for The Jobs Project, which is trying to create renewable energy job opportunities in West Virginia and Kentucky. In the southern coal fields, he said, people have only gotten electricity one way — f ro m c o a l - f i re d p owe r plants. “This is the first sign for a lot of folks that this is real, and that it’s real technology, and they can have it in their communities,” Getzen said. “In no way are we against coal or trying to replace coal. There’s still going to be coal mining here. This is just something else to help the economy.” The Jobs Project teamed up about a year ago with a solar energy company from

the Eastern Panhandle, Mountain View Solar & Wind of Berkeley Springs, to develop a privately funded job-training program. The 12 trainees are earning $45 an hour for three days of work, while some local laborers are earning $10 an hour helping out. Mountain View owner Mike McKechnie is buying all his electrical supplies from a local business. “We are not funded by any state organization. We’re doing this as a business because we want to grow the solar infrastructure and industry,” McKechnie said. Demand for solar energy has been growing in West

Virginia, and McKechnie’s company has been expanding with it. Mountain View has tripled in size two years in a row and is likely to do the same in 2011. It now employs 15 full-time workers, five part-timers and a network of about a dozen electricians, plumbers, roofers and general contractors who do installations when McKechnie calls. “This training model w e’r e u n l e a s h i n g i n Williamson is something we’ve proven,” McKechnie said. “It’s not a pilot project. It’s something we’ve shown works.” Besides installing the rooftop array, the trainees and three of McKechnie’s

One of William Shakes p e a r e’s m o s t f a m o u s speeches begins, “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances.” In bridge, all the cards are merely players in the hands of men and women. And this week we are watching our entrances to winners. In today’s example, how should South play in three notrump after West leads the spade queen? What would you open with the South hand? It looks like a two-notrump bid, but if you count two control points (as they are called) for each ace and one point for each king, a “normal” two-no-trump opening contains seven points. This hand has nine. If your range for two no-trump is the tournament-world 2021, you should upgrade and open two clubs. But if you use a 20-22 or 21-22 range, open two notrump. Your hand’s lack of intermediate cards (10s, nines and eights) is a drawback. South starts by counting his top tricks. Here, there are seven: two spades, two hearts, one diamond and two clubs. He will get one extra trick from clubs if the missing cards split 3-2, but he will still need to make something of dummy’s diamond suit. Declarer shouldn’t take the diamond finesse, because the suit will become blocked whether the finesse wins or loses. Instead, he should play second hand low and take the first trick in his hand with the king, keeping dummy’s ace as a later entrance. Then he continues with the ace and another diamond, which gives him three diamond tricks and nine in all.

employees will be doing assessments on seven other properties this week. The rooftop array on the doctor’s office cost about $90,000 and McKechnie said it will produce 11.7 kilowatts of electricity, or enough to reduce utility costs by about 20 percent. The system should pay for itself in about seven years. Getzen acknowledges many people can’t afford such an investment. “It’s going to take a little while to get going,” he said. “What we’re doing is giving them a crash course. They get an introduction, and if they want to continue, then that’s who we’ll call in the future,” he said.

Bob was born July 17, 1920, at the Bismarck Hospital, the son of Alex and Edith (McDonald) Anderson. He was raised on a farm south of Bismarck and attended Bismarck High School. When World War II started and he was not able to enlist because of a medical problem, Bob headed to Washington state to serve his country by working in the shipyards. While in Washington, he joined the Elks and was a member for 70 years at the time of his death. On June 16, 1947, Bob married Mary Turnbow. They had three daughters, Linda, Roberta and Mary. He tried his hand at farming, worked for the railroad and a local body shop and in 1953, he opened Bob’s Body Shop in Bismarck. There, Bob not only fixed cars, but he helped many teenagers find their way in life by mentoring them and allowing them to work on their cars at his shop. Bob’s passion in life was cars. He raced them, collected them, fixed them and, just before he died, he bought another car that caught his eye. His family always came first, and when extended family needed help he was always there for them. In 1973, Bob got the son he never had when his daughter, Mary, married Marvin Splonskowski. They hunted and fished and he had his male bonding partner for life. In 1983, Bob retired and sold Bob’s Body Shop (the oldest independent body shop in Bismarck at the time). He and Mary traveled for a while, but Bob felt the urge to continue working. He took on the job of adjusting cars and would take Mary with him wherever he traveled around the state. When his health began to deteriorate, Bob was forced to quit work, but he was always there to help his girls with their car problems (which some of them had quite frequently). In his later years, Bob enjoyed the special companionship of his fiance, Erna Engelbretson. Bob is survived by his three girls and one son-inlaw, Linda Harsche, Roberta Anderson and Mary and Marv Splonskowski; his grandchildren, Michelle ( John) Herman and her daughters, Abigail and Bronwyn, Mandi (Todd) Braun and their child on the way and Shane (Amy) Splonskowski and their children, Ma x a n d Ka t e a n d h i s fiancee, Erna.

Public official ethics bill is defeated North Dakota’s House has defeated a proposal for a state ethics panel to take complaints against public officials. Grand Forks Democratic Rep. Corey Mock sponsored the measure. He ran unsuccessfully for North Dakota secretary of state last year. Mock wanted to establish an 11-member committee that would take citizen ethics complaints against state and local public officials. It would have eight legislators and three nonvoting members, including the secretary of state. It would have power to investigate complaints about illegal lobbying, bribery, conflicts of interest and other offenses. Bismarck Republican Rep. Lisa Meier says the proposal was wide-ranging, and she says the Legislature already provides for an ethics committee in its own rules. House members defeated the bill on Wednesday, 68-25. — Associated Press

Property crime hate penalty rebuffed A proposal to make property damage a felony if it’s motivated by racial hatred has failed in the North Dakota Senate. The bill was introduced because of recent vandalism in Bismarck parks. Sculptures created by American Indian college students were destroyed or defaced with racist graffiti. Edinburg Sen. Curtis Olafson says violating the proposed law would have carried a five-year prison term even if the damage was minimal. He says other vandalism penalties depend on how much damage is done. Olafson says he believes existing state laws against vandalism can cover the problems. Senators voted 44-2 on Wednesday to defeat the bill. On Tuesday they defeated a proposed hate-crime law that addressed crimes against people instead of property. The bill is SB2052. — Associated Press

Bill calls for reservation polling sites A North Dakota Senate bill would require counties to open at least one polling place on each of the state’s American Indian reservations during elections. Many rural North Dakota counties run elections almost entirely by mail. New Rockford Sen. Joan Heckaman says it’s unreasonable to rely on mail voting on reservations that don’t have rural mail delivery or easy transportation. Heckaman’s district includes part of the Spirit Lake Sioux reservation. The tribe sued Benson County last year when the county wouldn’t open a reservation polling place on Election Day. The North Dakota Senate’s Judiciary Committee is reviewing the bill. Secretary of State Al Jaeger opposes the measure. He says it would require some counties to open a polling place on the reservation when there are only a few eligible voters. — Associated Press

Hearing held on medical marijuana HELENA, Mont. (AP) — House Speaker Mike Milburn called Wednesday for the repeal of Montana’s medical marijuana law, saying it has led to widespread abuses that go far beyond the intent of voters who approved the initiative nearly seven years ago to help extremely ill patients. Marijuana has flooded Montana’s communities, which have seen an upswing in school-age users, the Cascade Republican told the House Human Services Committee. The number of registered users is approaching Helena’s population of 30,000 people, and Milburn said he worries the law’s permissiveness is creating a larger societal problem. “We need to shut the industry down, we need to take another look at it, and we need to do it in a calculated and reasonable fashion,” Milburn said. Those who supported the law’s repeal were outnumbered by medical marijuana patients and supporters who testified the law allowed them to live better lives.

Continued from 1B Rep. Kenton Onstad, D-Parshall, said many of the potential situations are covered by a section of state law that protects landowners from liability by recreational users such as hunters or snowmoibile riders. North Dakota does not have an implied trespassing law, meaning if lands are not posted, they are considered open to hunting and other recreational uses. Still, Onstad said the bill would duplicate laws on

the books now. “If it is currently covered by law, why do we need it?” Onstad said. The bill has the support of the North Dakota Farm Bureau and the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce. Committee Chairman Duane DeKrey, R-Pettibone, said no action would be taken on the bill until Monday afternoon. (Reach reporter Brian Gehring at 250-8254 or

Retirement investments Continued from 1B tax collections by June 2013. Hogue said the fund may have more than $1 billion in four years. The Christmann and Hogue bills both would change the makeup of the 11-member state Investment Board. It oversees investments that benefit the Teachers’ Fund for Retirement, which covers No r t h D a k o t a p u b l i c school teachers, and the state’s Public Employees Retirement System, which manages pension funds that benefit state and local government workers, judges and law enforcement officers. The board now has three members each to represent the teachers’ and public employees’ pension funds. On Sept. 30, the board had charge of assets valued at $5.13 billion; the two funds accounted for almost $3.2 billion of that sum. Other Investment Board members include the state insurance commissioner, treasurer, and land commissioner; a representative for Workforce Safety and Insurance, which has its $1.28 billion reserve fund managed by the Investment Board; and the lieutenant governor, who has served as the board’s chairman. Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley attended Wednesday’s hearing. Christmann’s legislation would add three No r t h D a k o t a Ho u s e members and three sena-

tors to the Investment Board, and remove two teacher and two public employee representatives, leaving one of each. “I just think (legislators are) a good cross-section of the people of the state, and I think that is what we need on the Investment Board,” Christmann said. H o g u e ’s p r o p o s a l would create a separate, nine-member board that would oversee investment of the Legacy Fund and a separate state fund, called the Budget Stabilization Fund, which has about $330 million in assets. It would include three of the Investment Board’s present members — the lieutenant governor, the insurance commissioner and the treasurer — along with three state senators and three House members. The constitutional amendment that created the Legacy Fund puts the I n v e s t m e n t B o a rd i n charge of investing the fund’s principal. John Geissinger, director and chief investment officer of North Dakota’s Retirement and Investment Office, said a separate panel of legislators could determine the investment objectives of the legacy and budget funds. The teacher and public employee pension funds e a c h h a v e t h e i r ow n boards — which are separate from the Investment

Board — that decide on investment strategies for the Investment Board to carry out, Geissinger said. Establishing a subset of the existing Investment Board may not be the best way for legislators to determine the investment goals of the legacy and budget funds, Geissinger said. “I think the form can be more efficient, in a different manner,” Geissinger said. “I’m not objecting to the concept.” Sparb Collins, director of the North Dakota Public Employees Retirement System, and Fay Kopp, administrator of the Teachers’ Fund for Retirement, did not oppose either bill. However, both Collins and Kopp said teachers and public employees had long held an Investm e n t B o a rd m a j o r i t y because their pension funds represent more than 60 percent of the assets managed by the board. The Legislature is also considering proposals to close both funds to new members and enrolling newly hired teachers and p u b l i c e m p l oy e e s i n 401(k)-style plans as a way of gradually shedding the risk of the pension funds, which must pay guaranteed benefits to retirees regardless of their investment performance. The bills are SB2032 and SB2344.

Winter fun Continued from 1B who’d like to do something different,” he said. Other parks in the state offer other possibilities. Fort Ransom State Park, a beautiful, almost New England-y setting on the Sheyenne River south of Valley City, also is in Zimmerman’s winter headlamp. A local farmer is willing to donate some old-style grain bins to Fort Ransom and Zimmerman said the park’s carpentry staff will “play” around with one, with the goal that eventually more would be yurt-like accommodations year-round, and for snowmobilers who use an adjacent trail system. At Lake Metigoshe State Park, another cross-country ski destination in the woodsy Turtle Mountains near Canada, Zimmerman plans to refurbish some old dormitory buildings that have gotten a little fusty with age. He sees a similar opportunity for old dorm structures at Turtle River State Park, west of Grand Forks, which also caters to skiing and snowshoeing. “We’ll retrofit those into some nicer suites and put a little investment in there,” he said. Not every park in North Dakota has winter potential. Some have the opposite — too much of it. Fort Stevenson and Lake Sakakawea state parks, for example, are too open and exposed to be comfortable on cold, windy days, Zimmerman said. Some are perfect. “These are great settings for winter programs,” he said. (Reach reporter Lauren Donovan at 701-748-5511 or

Cruel winter

It can be a jungle out there There is little doubt that pursuing outdoor interests like hunting and fishing comes with some challenges.


And, there can be some inherent danger involved as well. There have been a few close calls in my life while I have been out bumping around. They have been, thankfully, minor occurrences that resulted in me getting wet for the most part by slipping and falling into the water. Well, OK, there was the time I ended up in the emergency room to get stitches but I had a good excuse; when I fell in the water I had a cast on my foot so it was a little cumbersome. But one never knows what dangers lurk in the great outdoors. Take two ice fishermen from Michigan, for instance. On the ice one day, they were approached by woman from the ice house next to them, according to the Muskegon Chronicle. The two men said the woman told them she had to “relieve” herself on the ice and asked the men to turn their backs to her while she did so. The men obliged, and told police that when they did so, the woman hit them in head with a fish. She then returned to her ice house. Police investigated and the woman said she was upset because the two men placed their ice house too close to hers. She denied hitting the men with the fish, but admitted throwing a fish at them and missing them. The two men declined to press charges. Sounds fishy. In Vacaville, Calif., near Oakland, a woman escaped injury while gassing up her car after an awning over the pumps collapsed, according to the Oakland Tribune. Turns out the awning collapsed because of the weight of years of accumulating pigeon droppings. Fortunately, the woman had finished filling gas and was in her car when the collapse occurred, dumping the pigeon droppings where she had been standing. Timing is everything, I guess. In Tarpon Springs, Fla., a man was walking his puppy and checking out some potential fishing spots when he happened upon a whopper of different kind, the St. Petersburg Times reported.

Access has been a major hindrance for ice anglers because of heavy snow cover that could result in winterkill on some lakes.

Winterkill on lakes a strong possibility By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune


he winter of 2010-11 more and more is beginning to resemble the winter of 2007-08. While we don’t have the 100-plus inches of snow — although some areas are about threequarters of the way there — wildlife are stressed and it could be the right set-up for winterkill on lakes. This winter also has eerie similarities to the winter of 1996-97, as well as the winter of two years ago. In all three winters, the snow came early and stayed later. Winterkill is an issue to some degree each winter but it has been some time since North Dakota lakes have endured the harsh conditions they have three consecutive winters. Greg Power, fisheries chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, said that although most lakes in the state have benefited from abundant precipitation in recent years, shallow water is not the only deciding factors when it comes to winterkill. Power said water depth is an important component — a 12-foot depth is marginal — but ice clarity and snowpack also can contribute to winterkill. It’s too early now to tell if winterkill will be an issue and, if so, how widespread it could be. Power said biologists will take to selected lakes in the state in the near future, on snowmobiles, to punch holes in the ice and test the water column for dissolved oxygen content. In bad years, anglers are often the first to notify the department of problems when they drill holes and find dead minnows floating to the top, he said. “It (the harsh winter) has affected fishing

“It (the harsh winter) has affected fishing already.” Greg Power, fisheries chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department already,” Power said, because access to many lakes has been a major problem. Power noted that between 20 to 25 percent of all fishing done in North Dakota annually is done on the ice. The key to the survival of fish during winter months is the ability for photosynthesis to continue. Aquatic plants release oxygen into the water and when sunlight is unable to penetrate the ice, it becomes a problem. That has been the scenario so far this winter. Snow covered many lakes early on, preventing the formation of clear ice that allows the sunlight to reach those plants. And when aquatic plants die and decay, they actually use oxygen and the cumulative effect can suffocate fish when dissolved oxygen content gets too low. “When both are working negatively ... you just watch the dissolved oxygen dwindle,” Power said. Following the winter of 1996-97, there were about 46 lakes across the state that experienced significant winterkill. After the winter of 2008-09, there were about 37 lakes that suffered winterkill, most in the western part of the state where lake levels were low. Different species of fish have different tolerances when it comes to the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the water.

Pike and perch can survive when dissolved oxygen contents dip to around 2 parts per million (ppm), while trout are more sensitive with a threshold of 3 to 4 ppm. A walleye’s threshold is somewhere in between that of trout and pike. Other rough fish like carp and bullheads can survive when the dissolved oxygen content is almost nonexistent. When winterkill strikes a lake, there is little biologists or anyone can do except conduct test nettings the following spring to see what is left in lake. The Game and Fish Department uses three classifications to quantify winterkill: total, where all fish die; significant, where the game fish population is significantly reduced; or partial, where fish die but some game fish survive. In some instances, winterkill in a lake can be beneficial when populations of rough fish get too great and choke out desirable species. That was the case in Stark County in 2009, when Patterson Lake suffered significant losses and the Game and Fish Department killed the remaining fish and restocked. Power said in many of the lakes that sustained losses two years ago, the fish have rebounded nicely, but relatively speaking, the populations are still young. He is hopeful old man winter will release his stranglehold in time for anglers to get some fishing in this winter. But if this winter proves to be a rerun of winters past, the combination of early snow, and lots of it staying until the bitter end, could mean losses in some lakes. “That’s what happened two years ago,” Power said. “And at this point, it could have happened again this winter.” (Reach reporter Brian Gehring at 250-8254 or

Northern shrike: Half-pint terror BY ALAN VAN NORMAN Bismarck-Mandan Bird Club This time of year, some of you may getting a bird visiting your bird feeder that really isn’t interested in any of the food you have put out. Instead, it is interested in the other small birds coming to your feeder. The northern shrike, though barely larger than a sparrow itself, is a terror to the chickadees, sparrows and nuthatches. It considers them lunch. The northern shrike nests far north of us, where it lives on mice, voles and even lemmings, as well as a variety of small birds. It perches on the highest spot it can find, surveying the surrounding landscape until it sees something that looks appealing. It will then drop out of the tree and fly low to the ground somewhat like a bouncing ball, trying to close in on its quarry while keeping out of sight as much as possible but without losing sight of its intended victim. Then, when close, it simply runs down its prey trying to pin it to the ground in any way possible. It will then try to grab it at the base of the skull and paralyze it by severing the spine from the skull with its powerful beak. In the winter it moves south, but usually not below the northern tier of states. Typically, shrikes do not come into towns because they like lots of open space for hunting. But if town is where the small birds are concentrated, a shrike will often show up. Once the small birds see

Northern shrikes are small or other small birds. a shrike, they will often panic, fleeing into any cover they can find. A few years ago, a shrike made an attack on our bird feeder. I ran outside to see what had become of his raid. I found him trying to squeeze himself behind a snow shovel leaned against the wall. I shooed him off. Behind the shovel was a chickadee, quite literally paralyzed with fear. It hopped rather than flew to the nearest juniper, where it hopped up into the branches to hide, fearing the shrike might still be near. I once even saw a shrike attack a small rat, larger than itself. The rat fought back and eventually

term from my uncle from Alabama who, like those around him, thought the French were rapacious, bloodthirsty, cunning and not to be trusted. All of these characters can be applied to the shrike. My uncle was referring to the northern shrike’s smaller southern cousin, the loggerhead shrike, but the two are birds of a feather after all. Another rather disparaging name applied to both of them is butcherbird. This name is given to them in recognition of their tactic for storing food. Both the northern and loggerhead shrike will store food by impaling it on a thorn, sharp stick or barb of wire. A favored storage spot may have a half-dozen carcasses impaled on thorns or barbs. When the hunting is good, they will catch as much as they can and store what they don’t eat, saving it for a blizzard or rainy day. I have seen a northern shrike catch six mice in Submitted photo rapid succession and take each mouse off and store it birds that feed on rodents before returning to the same perch. Any one of the mice would have fed it for escaped, but it could have two or three days at least. gone either way.

I heard the

Intervention’s unintended consequences I haven’t checked my archives, but even if I wrote last year about the human desire to feed wildlife during a difficult winter, it’s a topic that bears another look. Years ago in specific scenarios, feeding of wildlife didn’t send up red flags to biologists. Nowadays, however, the best information available tells us that feeding of wildlife accomplishes little more than helping us humans feel good. For animals, the perceived benefit is quickly covered like the end of a driveway after the snowplow goes by. With decades of cumulative research to draw from, you’ll be hard pressed to find a biologist today who will quickly and categorically endorse artificial feeding. That said, it seems unlikely that feeding of wildlife will end, nor do I expect people will dig a path to their back yard to retrieve their bird feeder. But I won’t change the message, either. The best scenario for wildlife is to begin winter with suitable winter cover, coupled with an abundant, naturally occurring food


source. These elements for survival are best established months or even years ahead of time. First, consider that deer, pheasants, grouse and partridge going into this winter were either survivors of the past two winters or progeny of adults that survived the last two winters, both of which were long on snow and short warm temperatures. While the natural cycle of the strong surviving and weak perishing can result in immediate mortality, the surviving population may have a genetic advantage. That may not mean less mortality in 2010-11, but I can point out how these animals may have an advantage compared to those that were around heading into the winter of 2008. Along with stronger

genes, populations of several resident species have declined the last two years. In addition to winter mortality, the Game and Fish Department also was, through increased licenses, trying to bring the deer herd back into target ranges. Winter pheasant losses came at the same time thousands of acres of Conservation Reserve Program grasslands were converted to cropland. While CRP doesn’t typically have all that much beneficial winter cover for pheasants, the nesting habitat it provides is essential. The state’s pheasant population would not have grown as much as it did without CRP, and it won’t likely return to levels of five years ago unless we see a net gain in CRP acres from what exists today. While we all like to see high wildlife populations, the odds of any one individual animal surviving a difficult winter are improved if populations are smaller. Reduction in cover and natural food sources in winter creates competition, which compounds winter stress. Lower populations mean

less competition, though strong and healthy pheasants or deer are still the most likely to get their share of food. In the wildlife world, each animal must eventually fend for itself. The greater the competition, the more likely that the sick or weak will be squeezed out. When humans try to help, sometimes there are unintended consequences. I’ve seen the backyard birding scenario play out firsthand, where neighbor were maintaining a backyard bird feeder. While they enjoyed the songbirds, the activity attracted a great horned owl that perched nearby. The redpolls attracted to the feeder eventually provided a ready food source for the owl ... another example that our efforts to feed wildlife, even on a small scale, do not always produce the desired results and often do more harm than good.

OUTDOORS DIGEST Cross Ranch Park Solunar tables winter festival set Feb.4

Associated Press

Shawn McCarty of Ely, Minn., leaves the starting line of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in Duluth, Minn., on Sunday.

Neck-and-neck finish in marathon DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Ryan Anderson of the northern Minnesota town of Ray has won the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in a neck-and-neck finish. Anderson and his 11 dogs crossed the finish line in Duluth on Wednesday morning just 20 seconds ahead of defending champ Nathan Schroeder, of Chisholm, and his 10 dogs. Anderson and Schroeder were side-by-side for much of the final dash. Mushers say they’re pleased with how fast the trail was. The teams set off Sunday afternoon for the nearly 400-mile trip from Duluth up the North Shore of Lake Superior, up the Gunflint Trail, and back to Duluth. Anderson crossed the finish line shortly before 9:30 a.m.Wednesday with a little under 40 hours of total time on the trail.

Wyo. right to hunt passes first vote CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A proposal to ask voters to decide whether to enshrine the right to hunt and fish in the Wyoming Constitution is advancing at the Capitol. Senate Joint Resolution 1 passed its first hurdle Tuesday, when the Senate gave preliminary approval to the measure. In November, similar measures were approved by voters in three states — Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee. Arizona voters rejected such an amendment. Backers say animal rights activists want to restrict hunting at a time when fewer people are hunting and fishing.

Wildlife motor deaths up in Wyo. JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Heavy snows this winter have likely resulted in more wildlife-vehicle collisions in Teton County. It is a trend that has officials worried for both the big game and motorists. From October through mid-January, volunteers tallied 27 animals killed on roadways, the vast majority of which were killed on highways 22 and 89. Sue Colligan of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation said the vast majority of the animals killed are mule deer. Wyoming Department of Transportation engineer Pete Hallsten says the early, heavy snow has concentrated animals near roads where it is easier for them to find food and move about.

The Cross Ranch State Park Winter Festival is from 2 to 8 p.m. Feb. 12. Scheduled activities include snowshoeing or cross country skiing along groomed trails. Other activities include a horse-drawn sled/wagon ride around the park and a program inside the River Peoples Visitor Center. The program, called “Whose winter coat is this?,” reveals winter animals at Cross Ranch State Park and how their fur keeps them warm. To warm visitors up, hot cider and soup will be available. The park will have skis available to rent, but those wanting to snowshoe will have to bring their own. The festival will take place no matter what type of snow conditions are present. The event is free and open to the public, but either a North Dakota State Parks annual or daily sticker is required for vehicles to be in the park. For more information, call Cross Ranch State Park at 701-794-3731 or visit for a complete schedule of events.

Comment period open for plans The U.S. Forest Service Dakota Prairie Grasslands has begun the National Environmental Policy Act process to address vegetation management and update allotment management plans for livestock grazing in pastures 2, 10 and 11 of the McKenzie Ranger District. The first step in this process is public scoping. Public scoping is performed to gather information from interested individuals, organizations and other government agencies on project proposals. The information will be used to help the Forest Service determine the issues, concerns and possible alternatives to proposals developed.

Midwinter waterfowl survey The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s annual midwinter waterfowl survey revealed an estimated 7,300 Canada geese wintering on the Missouri River in early January. Game management section leader Mike Johnson said numerous snowstorms in December with belowzero temperatures pushed most waterfowl out of the state. “Late fall was generally warm and mild through Thanksgiving, but December’s weather pushed a lot of geese through the area,” he said. Johnson said it’s likely this year’s count is underestimated because of poor lighting conditions during the morning of the survey and the tight flocking behavior of roosting geese. Last year, 25,400 geese were staging on the Missouri River in North Dakota during the midwinter survey. In 2009, only 9,700 geese were counted. Between 2005 and 2008, a new record high was established ever y year, reaching 175,000 geese in 2008. Record Canada geese numbers in the mid- to late 2000s coincided with years of unseasonably mild winter weather. From 1998 to 2004, the number of Canada geese on the river during the midwinter survey was between 2,000 and 89,000. Prior to 1998, the count was rarely more than 10,000.

Snowshoeing class set at Audubon You can learn snowshoeing at Audubon National Wildlife Refuge from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 20. The refuge will host a family snowshoeing program that will allow participants to learn the history and fundamentals of snowshoeing. O n c e t h e b a s i c s a re learned, the group will snowshoe across the prairie landscape in hopes of viewing white-tailed deer, ringnecked pheasants, roughlegged hawks, bald eagles and signs of wildlife. Snowshoes will be provided for those participating in the program, or people can bring their own. It is advised to dress warmly and in layers and bring water to drink. After the hike, there will be coffee and hot cocoa. The Prairie Pond Store will be open. In case of inclement weather, the program will be postponed to Feb. 27. Call 701-442-5474 ext. 110 to pre-register for the program, since class size will be limited. The Audubon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Cen-

Mystics sweep

Mustang power

BSC men sink 18 3-pointers in decisive victory By LOU BABIARZ Tribune Sports Editor First it was Kyle Weisbeck ... then it was Jalen Finley ... and soon it seemed like the Bismarck State College 3-pointers were coming from everywhere. Jordan Maurer .. Devin Yellow Wolf ... Martin Wind ... Sheldon Weisbeck. By the time it was over seven different Mystics combined to go 18for-40 from beyond the arc as the BSC men’s basketball team shot down United Tribes 101-72 at the BSC Armory on Wednesday. “Our guys all know if they’re open, shoot the ball,” BSC coach Jason Harris said. “We want to make sure they’re shooting with confidence.” Kyle Weisbeck and Jalen Finley, who scored 26 and 24 points, respectively, gave the Mystics all the confidence they would need. The duo combined for 38 points in the first half, including 7-for-10 on 3-pointers. “Whenever we come out passing and playing like a team, we get good shots,” Finley said. “ It’s pretty easy and fun. It’s better than playing as individuals. That’s how the game was tonight.” Earlier this season the Mystics struggled to beat the Thunderbirds, but this time they made short work of United Tribes. The marksmanship of Finley and Weisbeck helped BSC go on a 23-4 tear, giving the Mystics a 28-13 lead before the midpoint of the first half. At halftime BSC had a comfortable 52-35 margin. “We had more fire, more fight coming out of the gate than last time,” Finley said. “We were determined that we wanted to win more.” The Thunderbirds made one run, scoring 11 of the first 12 points after halftime. When Todd Raining Bird made the last of three straight layups, the Thunderbirds were within single digits (55-46) for the

first time since early in the game. But Harris called timeout and switched to a 2-3 zone that eliminated the easy baskets. A Wind layup started a 9-0 run, highlighted by a 3-pointer from Yellow Wolf, and the Mystics were never challenged the rest of the way. James Bagwell led United Tribes with 22 points, while Ronald Rousseau had 13 points and 15 rebounds. In addition to the big nights from Weisbeck and Finley, the Mystics got 21 from Maurer. “He’s a good outside shooter,” Harris said. “He just needs to shoot with confidence.”

BSC 74, United Tribes 57 BSC coach Kylee Wilson wanted the Mystics to use their quickness to counter the edge in size that United Tribes used to win their first meeting. “We talked about it in practice, and we talked about it before the game, and we talked about it again at halftime,” Wilson said. ” I guess the third time is the charm. I think they finally got the point.” The Mystics upped the defensive intensity in the second half, forcing turnovers, and that helped them pull away. “Our bread and butter is to press, get turnovers and score,” said BSC sophomore Carlie Buechler, who finished with 14 points and nine rebounds. “We’re not big, but we find other ways to score.” The win snapped a six-game losing streak by BSC. “We’ve been right with teams, but we’ve shot ourselves in the foot at the end,” Buechler said. “We didn’t want to let up on this one, because we needed a win definitely.” Continued on 4D


Bismarck State’s Kyle Weisbeck goes to the hoop against United Tribes Wednesday night.

Braves seek redemption By STEVE THOMAS Bismarck Tribune At first glance, top-ranked Century’s visit to Mandan tonight in boys basketball would appear to be a low-risk proposition. Century’s Patriots stand 111 and have already beaten Mandan once. Mandan is unranked with a 9-4 record. However, Devin Coyle, Mandan’s standout junior guard, has a different take on the 7:30 West Region clash. “We’ve definitely had our highs and lows, but the last four or five games we’ve had a run,” said Coyle, a 5-foot-11,

160-pounder who was an allregion selection as a sophomore. “... Right now I’d say we’re an average team, but we do have the potential to be a good team and be competitive with the top teams.” That’s been the case thus far. In fact, there isn’t a game in which the Braves weren’t in the thick of things going into the final minutes. Mandan’s losses have been by two, three, four and seven points, one in overtime. The seven-point setback was at Century early in the season. Coyle has no doubt Mandan can play with the Patriots. However, Coyle wants to do

more than just stay in the game. He’s competitive and wants a victory. “We’d like to beat them for what it will do in the standings, but also we’d like to win so we know we can beat these ranked teams going into the WDA tournament,” Coyle said. With 6-6 Chris Rivinius and 6-5 Carson Wentz crashing the boards for Century, Coyle said the Braves must play good fundamental basketball. “They’re much taller than us,” Coyle said. “They average three more inches than us on TOM STROMME/Tribune the court, so we’ve really got to box out hard. ... If we can beat Devin Coyle, right, is averaging 16.7 points per game for the Mandan Braves. Continued on 4D

The East-West wrestling tournament in New Salem is usually a reliable indicator of the season’s Class B state champion. Twenty-four of the 34 EastWest team champions from 1977 through 2010 have gone on to capture state crowns. Nine of the 10 state champions from 2001 through 2010 boasted East-West titles. This season, the odds favor South Border, the Ashley-Wishek co-op which is seeking its first state championship since it went back-to-back in 1998 and 1999. The Mustangs won the 22team East-West tournament last weekend, scoring 190.5 points — 19.5 more than second-place and two-time defending state champion Oakes. However, South Border coach Josh Hoffman has never put much stock in what happens INSIDE: during the regular season. Napoleon “Winning the upsets LintonE a s t - We s t w a s HMB in boys basketball, 5D huge. It was a big tournament with a lot of good teams, but what we did there won’t mean a thing once we get to state,” said Hoffman, who was a member of the 1998 and 1999 state title teams. “You still have to compete, and nowhere is it tougher than the state tournament. We have a good team and we’ve had a good season so far, but we’re taking it one day at a time and focusing on getting better.” Last weekend’s team title was the sixth in seven tournaments for the Mustangs. They finished second to Webster, S.D., in a tournament at Casselton. Of those seven tournaments, five consisted of more than 15 teams. “The bigger tournaments are where you see a lot of the top teams and top wrestlers. That’s why we want to get to as many of them as possible,” Hoffman said. “We’ve done well in all of them and that gives us lots of confidence. It takes a team effort to win a big tournament ... any tournament. Everybody has to contribute.” The Mustangs crowned three individual champions last weekend — Blake Bosch at 119, Justin Deede at 189 and Devin Olson at 215. They also placed four other wrestlers in the top four. Twelve of their 14 entries scored points. Continued on 5D

GRAND FORKS (AP) — Retired NFL quarterback Brooks Bollinger will coach the football team at HillMurray High School in Maplewood, Minn. Bollinger was a star at Grand Forks Central in North Dakota before moving on to the University of Wisconsin and then the NFL, where he played for the New York Jets, Minnesota and Dallas. He played the last two seasons for the United Football League’s Florida Tuskers, winning league MVP honos his first season, before calling it a career. Bollinger now lives in the Twin Cities and told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he wants to stay in the area.

Everyone knows who ‘Mike’ is now By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer DALLAS — Mike Who? No one asks that anymore. The coaches in Sunday’s Super Bowl — Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin and Green Bay’s Mike McCarthy — were fairly obscure NFL coordinators when they were hired. No one argues about their credentials now. To m l i n was the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl when he took Tomlin the Steelers to the 2008 title. McCarthy led the Packers to the playoffs in three of his five seasons, culminating with their first trip to the big game since the 1997 season. “You can’t put into words what he brings to a football team,” Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said, referring to Tomlin. “Intelligence, character, leadership, all the things you want in your head coach, and an uncanny rapport with his players, because he’s basically their age.” Tomlin is 38; three players are only three years younger. “For his age, he’s more intelligent than a lot of people who are probably older than him,” cornerback Ike Taylor said. “He carries him-

Of course, he sees a lot of things other people don’t see on and off the field.” Tomlin spent one year as Minnesota’s defensive coordinator when the Steelers picked him to replace Bill Cowher and become just their third head coach since 1969. He and Tony Dungy are the only black coaches to win a Super Bowl. “I embrace what comes with being a head coach,” Tomlin said, “and a lot of times that means making solo decisions and not finding comfor t in cer tain places, and that’s OK. My job is to lead these men, provide direction and a compass for them, and I take pride in doing it.”

McCarthy is actually the coach with Pittsburgh roots, having grown up in the Steel City — rooting for the Steelers, naturally — and developing a desire to get into the business from watching Chuck Noll. W h i l e To m l i n i s a n intense, back-slapper on the sideline, the 47-year-old McCarthy isn’t quite so demonstrative. “He’s a tough guy. He’s a Pittsburgh guy,” cornerback Charles Woodson said. “I think that’s his presence. We kind of feed off of that. He wants his football team to play tough. I think we’ve done that over the course of this season. I think that’s why we’re here.” McCarthy was the offen-

sive coordinator in San Francisco when he stepped into a position that always will be measured against one of the gods of the game, Vince Lombardi. “I don’t look at it like that,” McCarthy said. “I look at it as an asset. When you walk into your building every day and you have pictures of Curly Lambeau, Vince Lombardi and Mike Holmgren, our history is among us all of the time. It creates a standard and expectation that fits right along with our vision.” Both Mikes are involved in player evaluations, but leave much of the personnel operations to the men hired for those duties: Kevin Colbert in Pittsburgh, Ted Thompson in Green Bay. Tomlin and McCarthy stick to their areas of expertise, but operate very differently. McCarthy calls all the plays on offense for Aaron Rodgers, something that’s worked well with the Packers averaging more than 24 points a game and Rodgers rising to the upper echelon of quarterbacks. Tomlin contributes to the defensive schemes, but allows longt i m e c o o rd i n a t o r Di c k LeBeau to control the calls. Ne i t h e r c o a c h f e e l s threatened by his underlings, either. If Tomlin had been, he never would have kept LeBeau, one of football’s greatest defensive innovators. If McCarthy had been, he would have

brought in someone less accomplished that Dom Capers to run the defense two years ago. Both coaches have dealt with significant quarterback issues. Pittsburgh went 3-1 during Ben Roethlisberger’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. McCarthy was the coach who said goodbye to Brett Favre in 2008, a disruptive chapter in Packers lore he hopes has been blunted by Rodgers’ development and the team’s presence in Dallas. Tomlin’s biggest challenge has been living up to the achievements of Noll and Cowher. “I am very conscious of the legacy that is the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Tomlin said. “I simply want to add to it. That drives me on a daily basis. I have big respect for the men who have had this job before me. All I want to do is to do the job in terms of upholding the standard that is the Pittsburgh Steelers.” For the other Mike, recognizing and accepting the high standards in a place called Titletown USA is a must. “I look at the history of the Green Bay Packers as a tremendous asset to our football team, the commitment to football,” McCarthy said. “It’s all about winning on the field. That’s a tremendous advantage that we feel that we have in Green Bay.”

Old pals LeBeau, Capers match wits in Dallas By JAIME ARON AP Pro Football Writer ARLINGTON, Texas — Every so often, Dom Capers pulls out the humongous, handwritten playbook from his first year as a defensive coordinator in the NFL. He likes showing it to younger coaches to emphasize how much more labor went into designing plays before such t h i n g s became computerized. D i c k L e B e a u remembers Capers that exact playbook quite well, too. “I was the guy that had to draw it,” he said, chuckling. That’s only the beginning of the tale about an important document in recent NFL history and the close relationship between the defensive signal-callers who will be matching wits in the Super Bowl, LeBeau for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Capers for the Green Bay Packers. Both born and raised in small towns in southern Ohio, they became friends in the mid-1980s, when they were coaching defensive backs on different NFL teams and often scouting the same college players. They became colleagues in 1992, when Bill Cowher became coach of the Steelers and hired them on his inaugural staff, Capers as defensive coordinator and LeBeau in charge of the secondary.

Associated Press

The Pittsburgh defense, coached by Dick LeBeau (left), allowed the fewest points in the NFL this season, 232. Capers and LeBeau lived together for six months, spending most of their time building that playbook. It was quite a chore, and it became so thick because they weren’t sure whether they would use four linemen and three linebackers as Cowher preferred, or three linemen and four linebackers as Capers preferred. That meant every play had to be drawn twice, once for each defensive front — and LeBeau did all the drawing. “I was never so glad to go to camp in all my life,” he said. Capers’ 3-4 won out, and they soon discovered it worked best while using a wr inkle advocated by LeBeau: the zone blitz. What started as a way to counter the Run ’n Shoot and West Coast offenses that were dominating at the time turned into the start of a

defensive revolution that’s swept across much of the league, re-establishing the Steelers as an NFL power — and a defense-first power, at that — and earning these coaches widespread respect as being among the best in the game. “I t h i n k h i s t o r y h a s proven that we had some good ideas,” LeBeau said. Just look at what their clubs did this season. The Steelers allowed the fewest points in the NFL (232, or 14.5 per game), and the Packers were a close second (240, or 15.0). This is the first Super Bowl in 28 years pitting the top two defenses from the regular season, a surprising tidbit considering all the talk that defenses win championships. LeBeau and Capers use the scheme differently, tailored mostly to their talent. But even that is pretty

similar. T h e St e e l e r s h a v e a dynamic linebacker in James Harrison and a big-time playmaker in the secondary in Troy Polamalu, while the Packers have a dynamic linebacker in Clay Matthews and a big-time playmaker in the secondary in Charles Woodson. Polamalu was the AP Defensive Player of the Year, with Matthews the runnerup. Woodson won the award last year, and Harrison the year before that. “This is probably the only Super Bowl ever that the players from either team could jump in the defensive huddle and understand the terminology and probably run the defense,” LeBeau said. “I’m sure the nomenclature is different, but they could figure it out. Certainly if you gave them two days of practice, either team could r u n t h e o t h e r t e a m’s defense.” Pittsburgh has the advantage of stability. LeBeau took over in 2004, and this is his third Super Bowl during that span; the Steelers have already won two. Nine starters on Sunday also started when Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl two years ago. Capers joined the Packers last year, so things are in flux a bit more. The biggest change is that Woodson was the guy who went anywhere and did everything last year, and now Matthews has taken over that role. “You just have to try to feature the guys you think have a good chance of winning 1-on-1 battles and of making plays for you,”

Capers said. “So we’re still in the process. That is probably t h e b i g g e s t d i f f e re n c e between us and Pittsburgh. They’ve been running the same defense since about 1992.” Since working together from 1992-94, their careers have followed separate paths. Capers has been a head coach twice, both times with expansion teams. He got the Carolina Panthers to the NFC championship game in his second season, but wasn’t able to get the Houston Texans into the playoffs over five seasons. This is his 25th year as an NFL coach and his first trip to the Super Bowl. “When you’ve been doing it this long, you have an appreciation for it,” the 60year-old Capers said. “Once you get here, you want to m a k e s u r e y o u f o l l ow through and play your best game.” LeBeau has also been a head coach, but he’s thrived mostly as Pittsburgh’s defensive coordinator. In addition to the recent run of titles, he was the coordinator of the team that reached the Super Bowl following the 1995 season. This Super Bowl trip is especially significant for the 73-year-old LeBeau because it caps a season that began with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was honored for his 14-year playing career as a cornerback on the Detroit Lions. “I don’t think you could write a better script,” LeBeau said. “It’s right out of Hollywood, only I’m getting to live it.”

Bill Belichick coached the New England Patriots to a 14-2 mark this season.

NFL cites Belichick By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer DALLAS — Bill Belichick is closing in on Don Shula. The New England coach Bill Belichick won The Associated Press 2010 NFL Coach o f t h e Ye a r a w a r d o n Wednesday, the third time Belichick has earned the honor. Belichick, who also won in 2003 and 2007, now trails only Don Shula, a fourtime winner of the award. For leading the Patriots to a 14-2 record, the best in the league, Belichick received 30 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. That easily beat Raheem Morris, who led a turnaround in Tampa Bay and got 11½ votes. Belichick has overseen a transition in New England to a younger team, particularly on defense. Of course, he still has Offensive Player of the Year Tom Brady at quarterback. “I will say the foundation of the Patriots organization, which starts with Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick, has not changed since the day I arrived,” Brady said. “They have and will always do what is in the best interest of the team, and they will continue to find selfless players that love to work hard, compete and strive to be the best they can possibly be.” Then Belichick makes them even better. “He really stays on top of us,” wide receiver Wes Welker said. “He makes sure that we’re not getting overconfident or believing in the noise outside the locker room and understand that every game’s tough in the NFL.” Belichick’s record with the Patriots is 126-50, plus a 14-5 mark in the postseason, with losses in the last three tries with teams that went a collective 40-8. His career winning percentage of .716 ranks eighth, tied with Hall of Famer Paul Brown, and no other coach has four 14-victory regular seasons. This might have been Belichick’s most impressive work as the Patriots retooled much of the roster, yet had a dominant regular season in which they won their final eight games. “When you have so many things that go into a team, so many things that go into what’s happened over the last decade, which ones do you point to?” he said. “You can make an argument for a lot of different things. In the end, it’s each individual team and that collection of players that particular year and that particular time during the season or whatever it is, that was able to go out there and be successful.” Belichick basically rebuilt the defense, particularly the secondary, where rookie Devin McCourty made the Pro Bowl.

MORNING KICKOFF Trivia answer FROM 1D: Leon Lett of the Dallas Cowboys owns the record for the longest return of a fumble in a Super Bowl. He went 64 yards with a fumble against the Buffalo Bills in 1992. He would have scored on the play but the ball was stripped by Buffalo’s Don Beebe inside the Buffalo 5-yard line.

Playback 10 YEARS AGO (2001): Most of Aaron Silbernagel proved to be more than enough for the Bismarck High wrestling team. Silbernagel, coming off a leg injury, moved up from 215 to 275 pounds to win a major decision and give BHS a 33-31 victory over archrival Century at the CHS gym. Bismarck trailed 31-29 when Silbernagel, a sophomore, took the mat for the first time since suffering a leg injury in the finals of the Bismarck Rotary tournament on

Jan. 6. He went right to work, scoring a takedown against Dylan Lewellyn just five seconds into the match. He scored a takedown and three back points in each of the final two periods for a 12-0 major decision. 20 YEARS AGO (1991): Rory Entzi is the University of Mary’s No. 2 all-time scorer. But that’s not how the 6-foot-3 forward from Lehr would prefer to remember his collegiate basketball career. “It’s great to be the second alltime scorer, but I want to look back and say we did something as a team,” Entzi said after leading the Marauders to a 76-68 NAIA Sub District 12 win over National College. “That would mean more to me now.” Entzi scored 33 points, raising his career total to 1,689. 50 YEARS AGO (1961): HARVEY — Napoleon’s wrestling squad chalked up its seventh dual win in nine outings, whipping Harvey 39-

Herauf signs with the Gophers By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune Dickinson girls track co-coach Jay Schobinger has one up on Jess Herauf. When Herauf was a freshman, Schobinger told her that track and field would end up being her best sport. He also predicted that track would be her sport of choice when it came time for her to sign with a college. Herauf’s intention was to play volleyball or basketball at the next level, and she pooh-poohed his prediction. “I started laughing hysterically,” Herauf said of Schobinger’s theory. “I didn’t think about track until last year.” Schobinger now looks like a genius. Herauf signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field for the University of Minnesota on Wednesday. The senior received a full ride and plans to compete in the heptathlon and javelin for the Golden Gophers. Wednesday was national signing day for track and field, football and men’s and women’s soccer. “It has always been my dream to go Division I,” said Herauf, who plans to pursue a degree in elementary education. “I was so set on basketball and volleyball, but I didn’t know if I would get there.” Herauf is a five-time letter winner in track and has been named Dickinson’s most valuable athlete the past three years. She’s a 14-time Class A state meet placer, winning a state title in the javelin last spring. Herauf ’s all-around athleticism


Dickinson’s Jess Herauf won a Class A state title in the javelin last spring. makes her a great candidate for the heptathlon. Herauf said she’s needs to become familiar with the long jump, high jump and shot put to be competitive in the heptathlon. “I love learning new things,” she said. “I thrive on that. I’ve never tried those things before, and I’m excited to learn.” Herauf definitely had options to play basketball and volleyball at the college level. She was a three-time Class A allstate selection in volleyball, along with being named the 2010 Gatorade player of the year. She’s a second-team allstate pick in basketball. It wasn’t until last spring when Herauf realized her best chance at success in college would be in track.

“My coaches and dad talked about the heptathlon,” Herauf said. “It made sense. It was perfect for me. I compared scores with other college heptathlon scorers, and I thought this might be a reality.” Herauf took official visits to North Dakota State, where her brother Ben plays baseball, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The family atmosphere at Minnesota sold Herauf. “I love how close track teams are,” she said. “They seem to be a huge family. I talked to the athletes (at Minnesota), and they all kept using the word ‘family.’ I was looking into Iowa and Nebraska, but after I went to Wisconsin, I was still in love with Minnesota. I didn’t think it would get any better. “My brother gave me some advice. He told me not to be a Division I athlete if I’m not serious about it. He said it takes up your whole life.” Now that Herauf has signed, she plans to focus on helping her basketball team advance to the state tournament. “I’m not going to start thinking about track until basketball ends,” she said. “I’m putting everything I have into basketball because I won’t play it again.” TOM STROMME/Tribune The University of Mary track and Chris Menendez (34) of United Tribes drives past field team didn’t announce any sign- Bismarck State’s Shawn Kuntz. ings on Wednesday. Neither did its soccer teams. Tyler Flatland of Watford City (sprints, hurdles, relays) signed to compete for Minot State. Continued from 1D

U-Mary signings including perfect 16-0 marks as a sophomore and junior. U-Mary signed 34 athletes from 10 different state. Of the signees, 14 are from North Dakota. Schulz described the recruiting process as a yearround endeavor. “It’s like shaving,” Schulz said. “If you don’t do it every day, you end up looking like a bum. “It’s rewarding. You get to talk to young men about their hopes and dreams, and you can see if the University of Mary fits their needs. You don’t see what you’re doing until you put it on a sheet of paper.” Schulz landed the sons of two recruits who were high school classmates of his — Mack Keller of Bismarck High (tight end) and Matt Keller of Eagan, Minn. (linebacker). Parks, whose dad played at U-Mary, became the first son of a former Marauder to sign at U-Mary. “That shows how old I’m getting,” Schulz said, “and it shows how young our program is.” U-Mary lost 12 seniors from its 2010 squad. The Marauders finished the season ninth in Northern Sun play at 4-6 and finished the season 4-7 overall. After starting the season at 1-8, U-Mary won its final three games of the season, including an upset over Winona State. No r t h D a k o t a S t a t e announced the signing of 20 athletes from seven different states. Two athletes are from North Dakota. Century quarterback Carson Wentz signed a letter of intent along with wide receiver Andrew Okland of Fargo South. The following Nor th Dakota athletes have been admitted to NDSU as walkons: defensive end Leighton Talmadge of Bismarck; wide receiver Dylan Dunn of Fargo Shanley and linebacker Brandon Chrest of Cavalier. The University of North Dakota added 17 student athletes from 10 different states. The Fighting Sioux signed just one North Dakota athlete, Jace Hellman, an

offensive lineman from Grand Forks Red River. Minot State, which is making the transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II, landed 19 players. Seven of MSU signees are from North Dakota — running back/defensive back Eric Kuntz of Rugby; running back Collin Kittelson of Velva; linebacker Jordan Weidler of Velva; wide receiver Nick Liebel of Watford City; wide receiver John Landseidel of Minot Ryan; defensive back Cole Leidholt of Minot Ryan. Listed are the biographies of the U-Mary signees: NORTH DAKOTA ■ Channing Mann, 6-foot, 170 pounds, RB, Bismarck High: Mann earned Class AAA first-team all-state honors after rushing for a school record 2,219 yards and scoring 32 TD while leading the Demons to a third straight state championship game.

He set a single game school mark when he ran for 389 yards in a single and and rolled up 480 all-purpose yards the same night. ■ Nick Nelson, 6-3, 275, NG, Baldwin: Nelson was a two-time Class AAA all-state performer for Bismarck High. Nelson keyed the Demons’ state titles in 2008 and ‘09. In his three years in the BHS program, the Demons went a combined 32-4 with two state titles and a runner-up finish. He registered 39 solo tackles, 17 assists, three quarterback sacks and recovered two fumbles as a senior. Nelson also competes in wrestling and track. ■ Mack Keller, 6-3, 215, TE, Bismarck High: Keller was a two-year starter who helped lead the Demons to a state title in 2009 and a state runnerup finish as a senior. ■ Peter Bopp, 6-5, 300, OL, St. Mary’s: Bopp was a Class AA secondteam all-state selection. ■ Timothy Brooke, 6-0, 200, LB, Dickinson Trinity: Brooke was a Class A first-team defensive lineman and second-team all-state offensive selection. ■ Dakota Brust, 6-3, 300, OL, Park River: Brust was a first-team all-region offensive lineman and helped Park River-Fordville-Lankin to the Class A playoffs. ■ James McDowell Jr., 6-2, 280, OL, Mandan: McDowell was an offensive lineman and a nose guard. ■ Zane Miller, 6-1, 200, LB, Shiloh Christian: Miller was a first-team nineman all-region selection and earned MVP honors for his team.

SPORTS DIGEST AP source: Titans to talk to Mularkey, Fewell next NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Titans have received permission to talk with Mike Mularkey, Gregg Williams and Perry Fewell as coaching candidates to replace Jeff Fisher, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Titans have not yet interviewed any of the three candidates. Mularkey is Atlanta’s o f f e n s i v e c o o rd i n a t o r, Williams is the defensive coordinator at New Orleans and Fewell, an AfricanAmerican, is the Giants’ defensive coordinator. The

Titans would satisfy the NFL’s Rooney Rule of considering a minority by interviewing Fewell, who interviewed with Cleveland and Denver earlier this year. After the Titans received permission to talk with Williams, he later withdrew his name from consideration. “The timing is just not r i g h t ,” W i l l i a m s t o l d “I love the organization, I love the city of Nashville. It’s just not the right timing this time.” The Titans have confirmed that they have interviewed offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger and offensive line coach Mike Munchak, and this step takes their search outside the building.

Mandan-Century boys basketball them on the boards, I think we’ll have a much better chance that if they get second or third shots.” Most nights Mandan plays uphill. The starting lineup goes 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 across the front in the forms of Aaron Janz, Seth Westby and Mark Zinke. Erron Collins, 510, is Coyle’s partner in the backcourt. Five-foot-10 Kenny Haugen and 6-3 Phaden Marcellais are typically the first players off the bench. “We’re not a tall team but we’re

athletic, so we have to box out and get our rebounds that way,” Coyle said. Coyle said playing without graduated 6-8 all-state post Bryan Kielpinski has taken some getting used to. “This year is very different. We don’t have the big guy in the middle ... but we hope the outcome is similar,” he said. “We want to get to where we were last year, but win one more game.” Century finished second to Bis-

marck in an overtime state championship game last winter after winning the title in 2009. Mandan is a different team in other ways, too, according to Coyle. “Last year I stayed on the perimeter more,” he noted. “Now we don’t have Bryan so we’re all looking more to drive and get the ball moving that way.” Tonight’s game isn’t as much a showdown in Coyle’s mind as it a measuring stick. “We were very competitive with

them, and I think we’re much better at running our offense and working for shots than the first time we played them, so we’re hoping to get this one,” he said. Mandan coach Jason Horner said Coyle carries a lot of responsibility for a junior. “He has to lead by example and verbally,” Horner said. “Talking to him is like talking to another coach. He understands the big picture. He understands the demands of a varsity season and what we have to do

Continued from 1D to be successful.” As a returning all-region player, Coyle is the target of opposing defenses. He averages 16.7 points per game. Horner said Coyle has handled the added attention well. “They key on him and right now we don’t have the other scorers we’ve had in the past,” Horner said. “That puts a little extra pressure on him ... but he’s still playing well and he’s doing it within the framework of our offense. He doesn’t think he’s above the team concept.”

Gionta, who scored twice in Tuesday’s shootout win at Washington, made it a twogoal lead at 11:32 with his 19th. Auld, who blew a 4-0 lead in his last start, improved to 4-2 in eight g a m e s. T h e Ca n a d i e n s improved to 9-2-3 in their last 14 games.

Class B notes Continued from 1D “Bosch, Deede and Olson ... those are our horses,” Hoffman said. “We can always count on them to score big points in tournaments. We have a lot of other guys who have been pretty consistent. We’ve had 10, 12 guys score in every tournament this year, and that’ll be a big key for us at regionals and state. We’re in a tough, tough region with Lisbon, Oakes, Napoleon and Linton. We’re really going to have to fight to get a lot qualified.” Bosch won a state title in 2009 and placed second in 2010. Olson captured a state title last season. Next up for the Mustangs is the Region 1 dual tournament, which will be held Saturday at Ellendale. South Border was the region runner-up last season and went on to finish third at the state dual tournament.

s i n c e 2 0 0 1 . Na p o l e o n outscored the Lions 19-5 in the second quarter and led 29-13 at the intermission. “Our man-to-man defense was pretty darn stingy. Holding a team like Linton to 13 points in a half is pretty impressive,” Ketterling said. “We mainly wanted to limit their easy buckets. They score a lot of points off turnovers and fast breaks. But we took pretty good care of the basketball, and we made sure we hurried back on defense.” Linton-HMB roared back in the third quarter, cutting the deficit to five at 42-37. However, they never got closer. “We knew they would come out and make a run, and they did,” Ketterling said. “But we held them off in the fourth quarter. I’m proud of the way the boys responded to the challenge.” Napoleon’s inside game was a major factor. Posts Donovan Gross and Wade Rath-Wald scored 18 and 16 points, respectively, and combined for 20 rebounds, with Rath-Wald getting 12. Rath-Wald, a 6-foot-4 junior, also had six blocked shots, four steals and four assists. Point guard Jonah Schwartzenberger added 11 points. Ketterling also cited sophomore Grant Weigel for his defensive work on Linton-HMB’s most consistent scorer, Kelsey Larson, who finished with 12 points. “It was a good team effort,” Ketterling said. “We had a lot of players step up.” The Napoleon girls later made it a sweep with a 70-67 victory over Linton-HMB. The fifth-ranked Imperials raised their record to 15-0 and wrapped up the top seed in the district tournament. Rikki Schmidt and Sheridon Dewald led Napoleon with 26 and 22 points, respectively. Kendra Weigel contributed 18. Kayln Schneider tossed in 24 for

the Lions. In a key District 9 girls basketball game Tuesday night, New Salem-Almont downed Shiloh Christian 6650 to hand the Skyhawks their first loss in five district games. The Holsteins, who got 28 points from Emily Wolf, will be the district tournament’s top seed if they defeat Center-Stanton next Tuesday night. NS-A is 4-1 in district play. The Washburn boys basketball team will be the top seed in the District 10 tournament. The Cardinals wrapped up the No. 1 spot with a 65-42 victory over Max Tuesday night. The lone bright spot for the Cossacks was Levi Tomlinson scoring his 1,000th career point. The Mott-Regent boys completed a clean sweep of District 13 opponents Tuesday night with a 62-45 decision over Bowman County. Nate Fries led the way with 32 points. The Wildfire, 6-0 in district games, scored a big Region 7 victory last Thursday night, downing Dickinson Trinity 64-62. MottRegent lost to the Titans 6636 in December. Speaking of Trinity, the Titans rolled past Richardton-Taylor 88-50 on Tuesday night to put the finishing touches on a perfect 5-0 mark in District 14. Last Friday night, Solen defeated Standing Rock 5447 to secure the top seed in the District 9 boys tournament.

Countrywide lawsuit settled LOS ANGELES (AP) — California has reached a settlement in a predatory lending lawsuit against former executives at Countrywide Financial Corp. that will pour $6.5 million into a fund to help foreclosed homeowners. The state had sued Countrywide, CEO Angelo Mozilo and President David Sambol under former Attorney General Jerry Brown. The 2008 lawsuit alleged that the company lured borrowers with l o w “t e a s e r ” r a t e s o n adjustable rate loans. Loan officers didn’t tell borrowers that the rates would jump, that prepayments would be penalized, and the total loan costs would skyrocket, even if they made additional payments, the state alleged. The settlement filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court says Coun-

t r y w i d e a g re e d t o p a y $6.5 million to a Foreclosure Crisis Relief Fund. It will provide restitution, loan modification services and relocation assistance for foreclosed homeowners, plus money for state and local agencies to prosecute mor tgage fraud, Attorney General Kamala Harris said. The lawsuit claimed that Countrywide engaged in unfair business practices and false advertising laws with just about every action it took to market and originate some of the most popular — and potentially risky — types of home loans. Countrywide allegedly loosened its mortgage standards and verification procedures and agents overrode warnings from a computerized underwriting system that analyzed the ability of

applicants to repay. The company paid higher commissions to agents who put borrowers into loans with higher rates and fees than they qualified for based on their credit scores. In one case described in the lawsuit, the company provided a mortgage for an 85-year-old disabled veteran with such a low credit score and high debt that he defaulted on an adjustable rate mortgage in less than six months. The state claimed that these practices led to tens of thousands of homeowners with Countrywide loans defaulting and losing their homes to foreclosure. The attorney general’s lawsuit alleged that Mozilo and Sambol knew of these practices and allowed them to continue.
