iConfess SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Can your iPad or iPhone bring you closer to God? A new application for the devices aims to help Roman Catholics who haven’t been to the confessional booth in a while keep track of their sins, one Commandment at a time. The $1.99 “Confession: A Roman Catholic App” can’t grant forgiveness — you still need to receive the sacrament from a real, live priest like always. The app’s designers and some believers see it as a way to spur Catholics back into the habit of repenting. “There’s a reason we designed it for these mobile devices: We want you to go to confession,” said Patrick Leinen, one of the developers and a co-founder of the company Little iApps. Over the last several decades, American Catholics have been receiving the penitential sacra-

Bismarck stores prepare for iPhone 4 sales By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune Verizon Wireless retailers in Bismarck are gearing up for the arrival of the iPhone 4 with extended hours and extra staffing. Verizon’s store on South Third Street and at Best Buy at the Pinehurst Mall both planned to be open at 7 a.m. Nicolle Fleck, manager of the Verizon store on Third Street, said she was expecting customers to be lined up and waiting for the doors to open. “I think it will be huge for Verizon,” Fleck said. She based that on online sales since Feb. 3 for the iPhone that were the most in company history. Extra staff will be working to accommodate sales of the new phone as well an express lane to help customers with other needs, Fleck said. She said customers can check if they are eligible for an upgrade by dialing #UP6 on their Verizon phone. At the Best Buy store, department manager Leah Morris said the doors would be open at 7 a.m., and she expected to be busy. Continued on 5A

EPA attacks heat up By DINA CAPPIELLO Associated Press WASHINGTON — Vowing to curb the authority and the budget of the Environmental Protection Agency, congressional Republicans are attacking the agency to a degree not seen since President Richard Nixon created it 40 years ago. The EPA’s effort to tackle the latest and perhaps most challenging environmental

“There are plenty of people across the country who want EPA ratcheted down and think it has gone too far, too fast.” Mike McKenna, a Republican strategist problem — global warming — has made it a central target of the new Republican leadership’s anti-regulatory agenda.

to curb global warming, the administration is left to use existing law — the Clean Air Act — to start reducing the pollution causing the planContinued on 5A


Strokes rising in young By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writer LOS ANGELES — Strokes are rising dramatically among young and middleaged Americans while dropping in older people, a sign that the obesity epidemic may be starting to shift the age burden of the disease. The numbers, reported Wednesday at an American Stroke Association conference, come from the first large nationwide study of stroke hospitalizations by age. Government researchers compared hospitalizations in 1994 and 1995 with ones in 2006 and 2007. The sharpest increase — 51 percent — was among men 15 through 34. Strokes rose among women in this age group, too, but not as fast — 17 percent. “It’s definitely alarming,”

Diet soda tied to stroke risk LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s far from definitive proof, but new research raises concern about diet soda, finding higher risks for stroke and heart attack among people who drink it everyday versus those who drink no soda at all. The beverage findings should be “a wakeup call to pay attention to diet sodas,” said Dr. Steven Greenberg. He is a Harvard Medical School neurologist and vice chairman of the International Stroke Conference in California, where the research was presented on Wednesday. A simple solution, health experts say, is to just drink Continued on 5A said Dr. Ralph Sacco, American Heart Association president and a neurologist at the University of Miami. “We have worried for a while that the increased prevalence of obesity in children and young adults may take its toll in cardiovascular disease and stroke,” and that

appears to be happening, he said. Stroke still takes its highest toll on older people. For those over 65, there were nearly 300 stroke cases among 10,000 hospitalizations in the more recent period studied. For males 15 Continued on 5A

Child advocacy groups oppose interview bill “All they have is adults willing to go to bat for them.”

By JENNY MICHAEL Bismarck Tribune A bill that would allow parents or a representative of parents to sit in on interviews o f c h i l d re n suspected of being abused faced unanimous opposition from law enforcement, child advocates and social services personnel at a hearing Wednesday morning.

N.Y. rep. resigns after shirtless photo story CLARENCE, N.Y. (AP) — A married New York congressman accused of sending a shirtless photo of himself to a woman abruptly resigned his seat Wednesday, saying he was quitting because he regretted actions that had hurt his family and others. The gossip website Gawker reported Wednesday that Rep. Christopher Lee, a two-term Republican, had e-mailed the photo to a woman he met on the Craigslist classified-ads website. Lee said in an e-mailed statement that his resignation was effective immediately. The statement offered no confirmation or details of a Craigslist posting. “I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents,” Lee said in a statement posted on his congressional website. Also on Wednesday, freshman Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia announced he will retire when his term ends next year, deepening the challenge to his party as it struggles to maintain a Senate majority in the 2012 elections. In an e-mail announcement, the 65-year-old former Navy secretary said that after much thought, he had decided to return to the private sector. He offered no additional details about his plans, but said he has “every intention of remaining involved” in national issues.

Second blizzard hits Okla., Ark. OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Another powerful blizzard howled through the nation’s midsection Wednesday, piling up to 2 feet of new snow on parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas still struggling to clean up from last week’s epic storm. The blowing snow brought traffic to a halt, and the National Guard was summoned to rescue stranded motorists. Subzero wind chills forced ranchers to work desperately to protect their herds. As the storm barreled out of the Plains, it took aim at the Deep South, which was expected to get up to five inches of snow. At least two traffic deaths were blamed on the system.

Woman can’t remember birth GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina woman accused of giving birth in an arena toilet during the circus and leaving the baby told her family afterward she was bleeding heavily, but didn’t know why. Her mother told a judge the 24-year-old had amnesia about the incident. Je s s i c a B l a c k h a m i s charged with one count of felony child abuse and one count of unlawful neglect toward a child. Her bond was set at $30,000, and jail records indicate she has been released.

‘Guitar Hero’ game gets the ax NEW YORK (AP) — These days, guns are more popular than guitars, at least when it comes to video games. The company behind “Guitar Hero” said Wednesday that it is pulling the plug on one of the most influential video game titles of the new century. Activision Blizzard Inc. is ending the “Guitar Hero” franchise after a run of more than five years. The move follows Viacom Inc.’s decision in November to sell its money-losing unit behind the “Rock Band” video games, Harmonix.




Egyptians go on strike

By MAGGIE MICHAEL and TAREK EL-TABLAWY Associated Press CAIRO — Thousands of workers went on strike Wednesday across Egypt, adding a new dimension to the uprising as public rage turned to the vast wealth President Hosni Mubarak’s family reportedly amassed while close to half the country struggled near the poverty line. Protests calling for Mubarak’s ouster have been spreading since Tuesday outside of Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where demonstrators have been concentrated for the past two weeks. On Wednesday, protesters also gathered at parliament, the Cabinet and the Health Ministry buildings, all a few blocks from the square, and blocked Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq from his office. Strikes erupted in a breadth of sectors — among railway and bus workers, state electricity staff and service technicians at the Suez Canal, in factories manufacturing textiles, steel and beverages and at least one hospital. In one of the flashpoints of unrest Wednesday, some 8,000 protesters, mainly farmers, set barricades of flaming palm trees in the southern province of Assiut. They blocked the main highway and railway to Cairo to complain of bread shortages. They then drove off the governor by pelting his van with stones. Hundreds of slum dwellers in the Suez Canal city of Port Said set fire to part of the governor’s headquarters in anger over lack of housing.

Egyptian protesters wave a giant Egyptian flag near the Egyptian Parliament in Cairo on Wednesday. Workers “were motivated to strike when they heard about how many billions the Mubarak family was worth,” said Kamal Abbas, a labor leader. “They said: ‘How much longer should we be silent?’” Egyptians have been infuriated by newspaper reports that the Mubarak family has amassed billions, and perhaps tens of billions of dollars in wealth while, according to the World Bank, about 40 percent of the country’s 80 million people live below or near the poverty line of $2 a day. The family’s true net worth is not known. “O Mubarak, tell us where you get 70 billion dollars,” dozens of protesters chanted in front of the Health Ministry. For the first time, protest-

ers were forcefully urging labor strikes despite a warning by Vice President Omar Suleiman that calls for civil disobedience are “very dangerous for society and we can’t put up with this at all.” His warnings of a possible “coup” Tuesday were taken by protesters as a veiled threat to impose martial law — which would be a dramatic escalation in the standoff. But instead of backing off, they promised more huge protests on Friday. “He is threatening to impose martial law, which means everybody in the square will be smashed,” said Abdul-Rahman Samir, a spokesman for a coalition of the five main youth groups behind protests in Tahrir Square. “But what would he do with the rest of

the 70 million Egyptians who will follow us afterward?” Suleiman is creating “a disastrous scenario,” Samir said. “We are striking and we will protest and we will not negotiate until Mubarak steps down. Whoever wants to threaten us, then let them do so,” he added. The protesters filling streets of Cairo and other cities since Jan. 25 have already posed the greatest challenge to the president’s authoritarian rule since he came to power 30 years ago. They have wrought promises of sweeping concessions and reforms, a new Cabinet and a purge of the ruling p a r t y l e a d e r s h i p, b u t Mubarak refuses their demands that he step down before September elections.

House GOP looking for deep cuts By ANDREW TAYLOR and DAVID ESPO Associated Press WASHINGTON — Pushed by rebellious conservatives, House Republican leaders scrambled Wednesday night to find deeper cuts, officials said, hours after laying out a plan to save $35 billion by eliminating at least 60 federal programs and cutting back hundreds of others. Republican officials said one possibility was to add across-the-board cuts to supplement the targeted reductions spelled out earlier in the day at a closed-door meeting for the rank and file. The original plan targeting education and the environment, food safety and law enforcement presents a blunt challenge to President Barack Obama. It calls for eliminating a high-speed rail program the administration has ticketed for a multibillion-dollar expansion and recommends ending federal support for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, family planning services and AmeriCorps. The government’s principal nutrition program for pregnant women would be cut 6 percent below last year’s level. The proposal marks an initial attempt by newly empowered Republicans to cut spending and reduce the

size of the federal government. Yet it sets the stage for weeks of political combat as Democrats seek to blunt the cuts while tea party-backed conservatives demand more of them. Republicans are “keeping our pledge to the American people that we will cut spending,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said after details were outlined for the rank and file at a closed-door meeting. Preliminary details of the plan emerged just before Obama hosted Boehner and his two top lieutenants at a White House lunch. Reacting mildly to the recommended cuts, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs cited a “broad agreement that we have to change the way Washington works, particularly as it relates to spending.” At the same time, Gibbs said, “We have to do so in a way that protects the important investments so that we can win the future,” signaling the president will fight to protect his own priorities. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi was more pointed. “The Republican plan will cost jobs, undercut American innovation and clean energy, jeopardize our safety by taking cops off the street and threaten investments in rebuilding America — at a time when our economy can least afford it,” she said in a written statement.

HOUSE REJECTS GOP-EFFORT ON U.N. WASHINGTON (AP) — The House on Wednesday rejected a Republican-led effort to force the United Nations to give back $179 million in overpayments, falling short in the face of Obama administration arguments that much of the money already had been designated to boost security around an international headquarters susceptible to terrorist attack. The vote was 259-169, short of the two-thirds necessary for the bill to pass. It was the third straight embarrassment for the new House Republican leadership, which lost votes on the Patriot Act extension Tuesday night and was forced to pull a trade bill or suffer defeat. Democrats and Republicans said the events show that GOP leaders have yet to gauge the full extent of libertarianism and independence in their newly swollen ranks. Republicans gained control of the House thanks to sweeping victories last fall, many involving tea party loyalists. “If they’re divided on an issue like the Patriot Act, it’s a bad omen for things to come regarding unity on their side,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. “It’s only going to get tougher for them when it comes to budget issues.”

Giffords speaks for first time HOUSTON (AP) — Rep. margin, who Gabrielle Giffords is able to added that speak: She asked for toast at she is speakbreakfast one recent morni n g “m o re ing. and more.” Her ability to say even just “We always a word, a month after being knew Gabby shot in the head, pleased her is a fighter family, friends and doctors. and that she’s It may also provide valuable not going to clues about the condition of Giffords let this thing her injured brain. win.

Few details have emerged about her recovery since she began intensive rehabilitation at TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital late last month. But doctors not involved in her care said her simple request for toast could indicate higher level cognition. The lawmaker was apparently asking for something in an appropriate context, said Dr. Richard Riggs,

chair of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. “It was a desire. It was a want. It was something that would be preferable rather than just a basic need,” Riggs said. “It was encouraging. I was very excited to see it, and the fact that it was an appropriate context gives it more meaning.”

DEATHS Earl Weiss Earl John Weiss passed away in Dallas on Jan. 25, 2011, from multiple myeloma. Cremation has taken place and his ashes will be lovingly scattered on the Missouri River in Bismarck in early summer 2011.

Earl Weiss

Earl was born in Hazelton on Aug. 5, 1933, to Hazel Baker Weiss and Earl Paul Weiss. He was the third oldest of eight children, Joan Weiss Fricke, Patricia “Patty” Weiss Drumheller, Robert “Bobby” Weiss, Frederick “Fred” Weiss, Kathryn “Kay” Weiss Bickel, Paul Weiss and Kerry Weiss. He attended St. Mary’s Central Grade and High School of Bismarck, graduating on May, 27 1951. Earl then completed his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering at the North Dakota Agricultural College in Fargo on Dec. 21, 1956. In January 1957, Earl relocated to St. Louis, Mo. He accepted a civil engineering position in the Structural Dynamics Department of McDonnell Aircraft Corporation, a major American aerospace manufacturer and defense contractor, producing a number of famous commercial and military aircraft. It was here that he met his close and lifelong friend, Ray Tauser. Earl was also welcomed and loved by the Opal Hutsler family. In 1959, he advanced to the Missouri State Highway Department in the Traffic Department, responsible for traffic and signing. Over the years, many lifelong friendships grew with the Wolbaum, Wald, Benner, Nixon, Casper, Noble, Hartman, Yallaly, Lampe, Knutson, Dickherber, Henke, Kirchner, Gerrard, Hall and Priess families. Earl was drafted into the U.S. Army on July 13, 1958, in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. On Dec. 19, 1958, Earl was honorably discharged from active duty and reinstated into the U.S. Army National Guard. On May 3, 1962, he received an honorable discharge. Earl then moved back to St. Louis and accepted a position with J.S. Alberici as a civil engineer. He was responsible for various projects, including the Interstate 44 Highway construction and the Third Street reversible lanes, downtown, St. Louis. In 1969, he founded his own bridge and road construction company with business partner and longtime friend, Chuck Christian, forming Christian Contracting, Inc. In 1968, Earl and Betty Woodward were married. On the 19th day of May 1969, Earl welcomed his son, John Earl, born at Barnes Hospital, St. Louis. On Nov. 19, 1970, his twin daughters were welcomed, Kathryn Ann and Courtney Lynn, also born at Barnes Hospital. Earl and his family resided in St. Charles, Mo. In 1999, Earl retired and moved back to Bismarck, living along the Missouri River, where he loved to fish and watch wildlife from his porch. One of many highlights was watching moose and other wildlife cross the river. He had a boat dock and two boats, so fishing was a daily favorite throughout all the seasons, including winter ice fishing and duck hunting. Fondly by his side, he had the loyal and faithful companionship of his English setter, Gus. He shared many good times and adventures to Colorado, New York, Maryland, Montana, Missouri, Oregon, Canada and Texas with close fr iends and his family (brothers, sisters, children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren). At family gettogethers and holidays, he cooked his famous barbecue pork chops and fish frys. And, on cold days, good cheer was spread with Tom

and Jerrys. In 2004, Earl moved to Dallas to be near his children and grandchildren. He is survived by his loving children: his son, John (Irina) Weiss and their daughter, Sophia; his daughter, Kathy (Greg) Lowenstein and their children, Mackenzie, Brooks, Caden and Campbell; and his daughter, Courtney and her two dogs, Peanut and Wilbur, and her close friend, Todd. He is also survived by his dear siblings: his sister, Joan Fricke, Bismarck, (and children); his brothers, Frederick (Sandy), Ft. Collins, Colo., (and children), Paul (Roxanne), Silver Springs, Md., (and children), and Kerr y (Michele), Annapolis, Md., (and children); his niece, Michele Bickel Schroeder (Todd), Baldwin, (and children); his ex-wife, Betty Weiss and sist e r - i n - l a w, J e a n n e t t e McDougal, Osceola, Ark.; his b r o t h e r - i n - l a w, J a c k Dr u m h e l l e r, B oz e m a n , Mont., (and children); and his sister-in-law, Millie Weiss (and children), Yuma, Ariz. Earl was preceded in death by his parents, Earl Paul and Hazel; his brother, Bobby; his brother-in-law, Neil Fricke; his sisters, Patty Drumheller and Kay Bickel; his brother-in-law, Lyle Bickel; and his loving dog, Gus. In lieu of flowers, charitable donations may be made to combat Earl’s disease to The Multiple Myeloma R e s e a r c h Fo u n d a t i o n ,

WA R W I C K — J a m e s Hubert Hatlestad, 76, Warwick, passed away on Feb. 6, 2011, at Sanford Health, Fargo. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, at Warwick Lutheran Church. Visitation will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. Friday at Gilbertson Funeral Home, Devils Lake, with a prayer service and time of sharing at 7 p.m. Visitation will continue one hour prior to the service at the church. James Hubert, the son of Walter and Mabel (Carlson) Hatlestad, was born Oct. 10, 1934, in Eddy County, rural Warwick. Jim was reared and educated in the Warwick area, graduating from Warwick High School with the class of 1951. Jim had planned to continue his education at the college level, but at the sudden death of his father, he returned home to the family farm. Jim was united in marriage to his school sweetheart, Marilyn Joy Kiefer, on Sept. 30, 1956, in Warwick. They established their home on the Hatlestad farm and raised their three daughters. In addition to farming, Jim started as a rural mail carrier for the Warwick Post Office in 1961. In 1974, as the route expanded, he retired from farming. He continued with the Postal Service, until his retirement in 1996. Jim was a baptized, confirmed and active member of Warwick Lutheran Church. He served on the Warwick School Board when the girls were growing up. He was very active in the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, holding several different offices and serving as the editor and publisher of the newsletter for many years. Jim and Marilyn enjoyed traveling across the country attending the rural letter carrier’s conventions.

Strokes rising Continued from 1A to 34, there were about 15 stroke cases per 10,000, and for girls and women in that age group there were about 4 per 10,000. Several small studies had recently suggested an ominous rise among the young and among middle-aged women. “We were interested in whether we could pick that up in a much larger, nationwide dataset,” said Dr. Mary George, a stroke researcher at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The researchers examined federal records from a sample of hospitals in 41 states, covering about 8 million cases each year. They looked at the percentage of all hospitalizations for stroke by gender and in six age groups. For every 10,000 hospitalizations in 1994-95 compared with 2006-07, strokes rose: ■ 51 percent, from 9.8 to 14.8, among males 15 to 34 years old ■ 17 percent, from 3.6 to 4.2, in females 15 to 34 ■ 47 percent, from 36 to 52.9, in males 35 to 44


■ 36 percent, from 21.9 to 30, in females 35 to 44 “The increases seen in children are very modest, but they are more so in the young adult age groups, and we feel that deserves further study,” George said. B e t t e r a w a re n e s s o f stroke symptoms and better imaging methods for detecting strokes in young people could account for some of that change, but there is no

way to know, she said. Trends went the opposite way in older people. Strokes dropped 25 percent among men 65 and older (from 404 to 303 per 10,000 hospitalizations), and 28 percent among women in this age group (from 379 to 274). Doctors think better prevention and treatment of risk factors such as high blood pressure in older people may be contributing to the decline.

At the University of California at Los Angeles, doctors are seeing more strokes related to high blood pressure and clogged arteries in younger people, said Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the stroke center at UCLA. Early estimates from 2007 death certificates suggest that stroke is now the nation’s fourth leading cause of death instead of the third, partly because of better

water instead. Doctors have no chemical or biological explanation for why diet soda may be risky. It could be that people who drink lots of it also fail to exercise, weigh more, drink more alcohol or have other risk factors like high blood pressure and smoking. However, the researchers took these and many other factors into account and didn’t see a change in the trend. “It’s reasonable to have doubts, because we don’t have a clear mechanism. This needs to be viewed as a preliminary study,” said lead researcher Hannah Gardener of the University of Miami. But for those trying to cut calories, “diet soft drinks may not be an optimal substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages,” she said. The numbers come from the Northern Manhattan study, which enrolled about 2,500 adults over 40 in the New York area from 1993 to 2001 through random phone calls. Half are Hispanic and one-fourth are black, making it one of the few studies to look at these risks in minorities, who have higher rates of stroke. Participants filled out a standard survey about their diets at the start of the study, and their health was tracked for nearly 10 years. In that time there were 559 strokes or heart attacks, 338 of them fatal. treatments and prevention among the elderly. “But at the same time we’re seeing this worrisome rise in midlife,” Saver said. Allison Hooker, a nurse who coordinates stroke care at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., said her hospital also is seeing

more strokes in younger people with risk factors such as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, alcohol overuse and diabetes. “I’d say at least half of our population (of stroke patients) is in their 40s or early 50s,” she said, “and devastating strokes, too.”

Continued from 1A change is a hoax,” Waxman said. “The science hasn’t changed in the last two years; in fact, it’s only gotten stronger.” There’s also growing resistance to a host of other regulations expected from the agency. Some were initiated by Obama, but others are the result of courts throwing regulations from the George W. Bush administration. Still others stem from reviews required by law to update standards to reflect the latest science. They cover everything from ground-level ozone, the main ingredient in smog, to coal ash disposal, to rules aimed at reducing pollution blowing into downwind states and from industrial boilers. The EPA’s defenders say the agency is simply following statutes aimed at protecting people’s health — something they say has strong support and is necessary for a healthy economy.

EPA attacks et’s temperature to rise. During a hearing on Wednesday, GOP members of a House subcommittee contended that such actions will only raise electricity prices and penalize industries that otherwise could be creating jobs. “Congress intends to reassert itself in the statutory and regulatory process at EPA and specifically the Clean Air Act,” said Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., chairman of the subcommittee on energy and power. He is a sponsor of a draft bill that would block the EPA from using the law to control heat-trapping pollution. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson told the panel that the legislation “would eliminate portions of the landmark law that all American children and adults rely on to protect them from harmful air pollution.” During more than two hours of testimony, Jackson said the law and overwhelming scientific evidence on

global warming compelled the EPA to act. House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., the author of the draft bill, denied that it would limit the federal government’s ability to monitor and reduce health-damaging pollution. At the same time, Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., proposed a sweeping $1.9 billion cut — about 18 percent — to the amount of money requested for EPA this year by President Barack Obama. Rogers’ proposal would also shave millions from EPA programs that reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, including one that boosts energy efficiency in household appliances and another that collects data on heat-trapping emissions. The agency has been caught before in shifting political winds. In the past, however, Congress passed nearly unanimously the laws

that cleaned up the air and water. Longtime observers say the atmosphere for the agency today has never been more toxic. “It’s really been quite extreme,” William Ruckelshaus, EPA administrator under Nixon and again under President Ronald Reagan, said of the rhetoric aimed at the agency. “What are they supposed to do? Sit there and do nothing?” The latest and perhaps most draconian attack came from Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and possible 2012 GOP presidential candidate. Gingrich called for abolishing the EPA and replacing it with an organization more friendly to business. During a campaign commercial last year, Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia used a rifle to blast a hole through legislation limiting the gases blamed for global warming. He won a seat in the Senate. Mike McKenna, a Republi-

can strategist, says Gingrich and Manchin are outliers in a more reasoned debate over how big the global warming problem is and how to deal with it. “I don’t think the (political) base is ready to throw EPA out the window,” McKenna said. “There are plenty of people across the country who want EPA ratcheted down and think it has gone too far, too fast.” Lawmakers of both parties have already introduced a dozen bills aimed at weakening, delaying or blocking pollution regulations. Business groups invited by congressional Republicans to describe their biggest regulatory burdens singled out EPA rules more than any other. The main target is the agency’s use of the Clean Air Act to control greenhouse gases. The Supreme Court said in 2007 the law could be used to fight global warming. In 2009, the EPA under Obama put the law in motion by concluding that climate

change caused by pollution from industries, automobiles and other sources burning fossil fuels threaten public health and welfare. Some Republicans — and some Democrats from industrial states — aren’t convinced that’s the case. Others, including Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., think the law is ill-suited to deal with the problem. Dingell led negotiations over the last major overhaul of the Clean Air Act, in 1990. On Wednesday, he told Jackson the agency’s use of the law for global warming has put it in the “intolerable hole in which I find you.” Rep. Henry Waxman, DCalif., the top Democrat on the committee and author of the climate legislation that passed the House in 2009, said that while Republicans could rewrite the nation’s laws, they couldn’t change scientific evidence showing global warming is a threat. “The underlying premise of this bill is that climate

even advises when to say “amen.” Melanie Williams is a 17year-old Catholic who helped test the app after co-developer Chip Leinen asked for volunteers at the area high school where he runs a youth group. Williams said she used to freeze up whenever the time came to confess: “I have a horrible time remembering what I want to say when I’m actually in the confessional.” Religious applications for mobile devices are nothing new. Things like daily inspirational text messages and digital compasses that point Muslims in the direction of Mecca have been around since the early years of mobile technology. But as that technology becomes a bigger part of daily

life, the faithful are finding ways to incorporate it into their religious lives, said Heidi Campbell, a communication professor at Texas A&M University who studies how religious communities use technology. “People now are saying, ‘We live our lives connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, so how do we highlight our spirituality in the same way?’” she said. Response to the new app from the church has been cautious but positive; the Most Rev. Kevin Rhoades, bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, gave his imprimatur to the app, essentially an acknowledgment that it doesn’t conflict with Catholic t e a c h i n g . T h e Va t i c a n weighed in as word of the app spread through Catholic cir-

cles. A church spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, stressed that only a priest may hear confession. “This cannot be substituted by any computer application,” he said. “This must be emphasized to avoid misunderstandings. One cannot speak in any way of ‘confession by iPhone.’” But a believer could use a digital instrument, such as an iPhone, to prepare for confession in the same way people once did with a pen and paper, he said. The Catholic Church is far from a novice when it comes to using new technology to reach the faithful: Catholic apps cover everything from the calendar of the liturgical year to guides for priests on celebrating the Mass. Pope Benedict XVI has encouraged

priests to get involved in at least one aspect of online ministry, whether blogs, podcasts or something else. “The Internet is a chance for some people to ease into it,” said the Rev. Jay Finelli, pastor of Holy Ghost Church in Tiverton, R.I., who has been podcasting as the iPadre since 2005. “People have the opportunity to approach a priest or learn something, where maybe they’re afraid to approach their local priest,” he said. Ultimately, Scheidt said, that’s the goal: getting people right with God. “If this brings one person back to confession, there’s more joy in heaven over that than over 99 people who already have their acts together,” he said.

a court order, and parents must have their day in court,” he said. Ward County State’s Attorney Rosa Larsen testified that if allegations make it to court, parents and their attorneys get to see videotapes of interviews. Jim Vukelic, a former judge and prosecutor, said he was involved in a case where a child had made a disclosure of sexual abuse and the offender, a parent, found out she was going to be interviewed. The girl made no disclosures at her initial interview, presumably due to the father’s influence. Three years later, investigators found videotape evidence that the man had been sexually abusing the girl for about six years. In other cases in which he

has been involved, fathers or stepfathers are controlling of their household to the extent that spouses, who are often subservient to the men, may be willing to protect the offender even when they know allegations to be true. Vukelic said legislators have to balance an “inevitable clash of rights” between parents and children. However, he said children do not have the knowledge or resources of parents and need more protection. “All they have is adults willing to go to bat for them,” he said. Assistant Attorney General Jon Byers told the committee members many of the “horror stories” they have heard from constituents may

The text-based app takes the user through the Ten Commandments, with a slew of questions attached to each, a process known as an examination of conscience, which penitents undergo before confession. Questions range from “Have I wished evil upon another person?” to “Have I used any method of contraception or artificial birth control in my marriage?” and users can check a box next to each sin they’ve committed. Once that’s done, the app lists the user’s sins and displays a written act of contrition, a prayer recited by the penitent. From there, it walks the user through the rest of the steps of confession and

Groups oppose interview bill from current law. Paula Condol, director of the Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center and a forensic interviewer, said research has shown that children are less likely to tell the truth with more than one adult in the room and instead feel they are in trouble. Forensic interviewers, who are trained not to ask leading questions or react to what children say, interview children about reports of abuse at children’s advocacy centers, while law enforcement, prosecutors, social workers or others watch over closed-circuit television. The process allows children to tell their stories only once to minimize trauma. Morton County Sheriff Dave Shipman said in his

experience, children often will not make disclosures with more than one adult in the room. Other issues Condol had with the bill include that parents might give verbal or nonverbal cues to children, parents might be traumatized by what their children say they experienced, and children might stop talking to avoid upsetting parents. She also said alleged abusers, who often are the parents of the children, are not allowed in the building, which is another accreditation standard. Chip Ammerman, director of Cass County Social Services, and Steve Reiser, director of Dakota Central Social Services, said social workers often interview children at schools after mandatory

reporting indicates there may be a problem. Parents must be told after an interview that a child has been interviewed, but parents do not have to consent for children to be interviewed. Many interviews by social workers are recorded, but some are not. Reiser said children are not taken from parents without due process. In most cases, social workers will ask that the alleged abusive parent leave the home until the matter is completed or that a nonoffending caregiver take the child elsewhere. Only when both parents are believed to be involved in not protecting the child does social services move to remove a child. “Social services must have

He said recording child interviews is good practice but would be difficult to mandate. He said the forensic interviewers are best able to determine whether children are telling the truth, making something up or have been coached by a parent or other adult. Tim Hathaway, executive director of Prevent Child Abuse North Dakota, said his organization and the North Dakota Association for the Education of Young Children also oppose the bill.

Emmons plans for flooding An Emmons County spring weather planning meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Feb. 25 at the Emmons County Auditorium.



Overland flooding is main spring fear Risk of ice jams appears less on Missouri River By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune Bismarck Emergency Manager Gary Stockert said overland melt might cause flooding in the coming weeks, but the risk of ice jams appears to be lower in the Missouri River.

“The flood planning meeting will be to review the current conditions, forecast conditions, Emmons County flood plan roles and responsibilities, and sandbagging discussions,” said Mary Senger, emergency manager for both Emmons and Burleigh County. She said Emmons County made an emergency flood declaration in January.

“Our main potential is for overland flooding,” Stockert said. “We could have isolated flooding.” So far, he said, Bismarck has received 54.3 inches of snowfall for the 2010-11 winter season. The city had 100.3 inches of snow for the 2008-09 season and 55.4 inches of

snow in 2009-10. Still, Bismarck this year has a lower water equivalency in its snow than other parts of the state. Flooding could happen in both the north and south sections of the city, Stockert said. “It’s not an elevation issue, but how

the melt happens,” he said. Stockert told the Bismarck City Commission this week that the city has between 250,000 and 300,000 sandbags on standby if it needs to set up self-bagging sites later. Sand is easy to Continued on 6B


Burleigh pay study The Burleigh County Commission this week agreed to let human relations director Renae Gall hire Fox, Lawson and Associates of St. Paul, Minn., to do a pay compensation study for $18,000. The study will be paid for from the 2011 budget, but commissioners may amend Gall’s budget if she falls short to pay for the study. Gall said she had some carryover from her 2010 budget. The pay study had been partially driven by social services director Shari Doe’s request for a nearly $9,000 raise during the 2011 budgeting process last fall through a three-step pay raise. Doe received a one-step pay raise for 2011 as was already scheduled, but commissioners discussed studying her request. This week, commissioners said it would be more efficient to do multiple pay assessments for the same cost from Fox, Lawson and Associates. Gall said the study will cover department heads and other positions those department heads determine need more review.

Smoking Burleigh County commissioners kept the county’s smoking policy the same this week. A policy had been proposed to increase the distance allowed to smoke near a county building from 10 feet to 25 feet. The policy already bans workers from smoking in county vehicles and in the county building. Commissioners felt it was enough distance to comply with city policy to allow smoking no closer than 10 feet away from a building.

Airport Authority job The Mandan City Commission is seeking people to fill one position on the Mandan Airport Authority. Residents and members of the business community can send letters of interest for the five-year term by Feb. 28. They should be sent to Jim Lawler, Mandan Municipal Airport, P.O.

In his remarks to the Scouts, Dalrymple recalled being a Cub Scout while growing up on a farm near Casselton. Fugleberg holds the rank of Life Scout and is from Troop 93 in Portland. The Northern Lights Council has 14,888 registered Boy Scouts. The luncheon was held at the Bismarck Elks Club.

Bill changes assessment process By REBECCA BEITSCH Bismarck Tribune Legislators on Wednesday reviewed a bill that would give the power to halt a special assessment to those who are paying most of the cost. Currently, those with the most square footage have the most power when it comes to protesting a special assessment. Bill Shalhoob, a lobbyist for the Chamber of Commerce who was

speaking on his own behalf, is pushing for the bill after having trouble getting work done in front of his own building due to a majority landowner. Shalhoob said the landowner has more than 50 percent of the area adjacent to where the road work would take place yet would only cover 10 percent of the cost. The other 90 percent of the cost is being covered by those in favor of the project, Shal-

hoob said. The bill was opposed by the League of Cities, howe ve r. The grou p brought in a city representative who said the bill would make some calculations difficult. “The fundamental flaw with this bill is the inability to calculate the cost of the project that early in the assessment process,” said Al Grasser, the city engineer in Grand Forks. Cost estimates would have to be

given before contracts are awarded, he said. Shalhoob said in his experience about Bismarck, he got a project cost estimate before a protest period began. The House Finance and Taxation Committee heard testimony on the bill. It took no action on the measure. (Reach reporter Rebecca Beitsch at 2508255 or 223-8482 or re b e c c a . b e i t s c h @ b i s

bill’s primary sponsor. “We need to have opportunities and accessibility for every voter,” said Rep. Lee Kaldor, D-Mayville. “I know this bill has some problems, but I think it’s too great an issue, too important an issue, for us to simply abandon.” After representatives endorsed it 55-39 on Wednesday, it was assigned to the House Appropriations Committee, which will look at its cost. Secretary of State Al Jaeger has estimated the legislation will require spending $156,000 on additional voting equipment, $124,200 on 54 new polling locations

and a recurring $35,000 cost in wages and expenses for election workers. Federal voting access rules have required states in recent years to purchase equipment for each voting station for use by people with disabilities. The implementation has coincided with a decline in North Dakota’s number of polling sites and a lengthening roster of counties that conduct elections mostly by mail. In the November 2010 election, more than 20 of North Dakota’s 53 counties relied mostly on mail balloting. State law requires

vote-by-mail counties to open only one walk-up voting station on Election Day. Opponents of Kasper’s bill said the ease of mail balloting and absentee voting offered ample opportunities to vote, as we l l a s e a r l y- v o t i n g precincts. Rep. Robin Weisz, R-Hurdsfield, said voters who are unhappy about a lack of polling places on Election Day should press their county governments to open more of them. According to 2000 census data, 181 of North Dakota’s 378 cities had more than 200 people. The bill is HB1292.

U-Mary, BSC show record enrollment Tribune staff and wire reports The University of Mary and Bismarck State College are reporting record spring enrollments. The schools are among many in the state setting records. The University of Mary reported its spring enrollment this year is up 10 percent from a year ago. School officials said 3,001 students were enrolled for the spring semester compared to 2,880 last year. Of that number, 2,301 were full-time students and 700 were part time. Enrollment at U-Mary was 3,053 for the fall semester. Bismarck State College reported a record spring enrollment for the fourth consecutive year. Enrollment numbers released this week show a total enrollment of 3,985 students, a 2 percent increase from last year’s spring semester. Of that number, 2,486 students are enrolled full time and 1,499 are part time. Other schools also expect records: ■ North Dakota State University says it has posted a record spring enrollment for the 12th straight year. Officials say 13,533 students are enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional programs, up from 13,411 a year ago. Graduate student numbers at NDSU rose from last spring’s alltime record of 2,146 to 2,213. ■ The University of North Dakota officials say a record 13,458 students are enrolled, eclipsing last year’s mark of 12,733. The spring record comes on the heels of a record enrollment last fall of 14,194 students. Enrollment typically is higher in the fall than in the spring. UND’s graduate school also has grown, up more than 8 percent over the year to 2,547 students. ■ Minot State University said 3,636 students are attending classes this spring, its largest spring enrollment since 2006 and a 4.6 percent increase from the previous year. It reported 123 more full-time undergraduate students and 177 more transfer students than in spring 2010. ■ Mayville State University has a record spring enrollment of 934 students. School officials say that’s a 13 percent increase over last spring’s total enrollment. The university also says that since spring 2009, the number of fulltime students has increased by 26 percent. ■ Valley City State University reported a spring enrollment of 1,221 students, an increase of 18 percent from a year earlier. It comes after the university showed a 19 percent increase in fall 2010 enrollment.

Distracted Small-town polling places get a boost driving bill resurrected Associated Press

Re b e l l i n g a g a i n s t North Dakota’s trend toward voting by mail, the state House voted Wednesday to order counties to open a polling place in each city with more than 200 people for every statewide election. Critics of the proposal said it intruded into the authority of county governments and would make elections more expensive, but its supporters said money considerations should not prevail. “What price will we pay to protect our freedoms to vote?” asked Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, the

A proposed $100 fine for distracted driving has been revived in the North Dakota House. The legislation is an alternative to a separate bill that would ban sending text messages while driving. The House approved the texting ban on Tuesday and defeated the bill that penalized distracted driving. House members voted Wednesday to revive the distracted driving legislation, then approved the bill, 56-37. It now goes to the Senate. The bill defines a distraction as anything that requires a motorist to take his or her eyes off the road. — Associated Press

Man arrested for failure to register Police arrested a Bismarck man for failing to register as a sex offender after he moved to a new address. Lt. Mark Buschena said Lonnie Howard Gainous, 36, moved from his previous address at 313 S. Ninth St. but did not notify authorities when he left that location. He was arrested Tuesday. Gainous was convicted in 1998 of corruption of a minor and in 1999 for failure to register as well, according to court records. — Christopher Bjorke

Amendment would block health law A proposed amendment to the North Dakota Constitution would block parts of the new federal health care law. The amendment would keep the federal government from forcing North Dakota citizens to buy health insurance. It would also ban fines on people who want to pay directly for private health care. Fargo Republican Jim Kasper is proposing the amendment. He says the measure is a way to fight back against the federal health care law that he says is unconstitutional. If approved by the state House and Senate, the amendment would be on the ballot in June 2012. The House Constitutional Revision Committee reviewed the amendment Wednesday. It is HCR3014. — Associated Press

‘Rumble strip’ restriction loses When it came to highways, the North Dakota House wasn’t ready to rumble on Wednesday. Representatives defeated a proposal to restrict the state Department of Transportation’s placement of “rumble strips” on highway center lines and the edges of roads. The vote was 68-26 to reject the restrictions. Rumble strips are part of the agency’s highway safety plan, but House members say they’ve heard complaints about the noise they make. They also wonder whether the money wouldn’t be better spent on road work. The bill is HB1358. — Associated Press

Al Jazeera crew coming to N.D. NEW TOWN (AP) — North Dakota’s oil boom is drawing the interest of the international broadcaster Al Jazeera English. A producer, reporter and cameraman plan to travel from Washington, D.C., and New York to New Town late this week. They plan to explore how the Fort Berthold Reservation community and the Three Affiliated Tribes are dealing with the oil boom. They’ll meet with Tribal Chairman Tex Hall and also get the views of tribal elders. Producer Kavitha Chekuru said she became interested in visiting North Dakota last year when she found out how high the state’s oil production is.

Officials say rape report not random FARGO (AP) — West Fargo police say a reported rape of a 15-year-old girl in her home apparently was not a random act. Detective Tim Runcorn said electronic evidence indicates “a good chance” that the suspect and girl communicated through text messages. He says police haven’t identified the suspect but anticipate being able to do so with the new evidence. He says even if the two did text, that does not necessarily mean they knew one another. The assault allegedly occurred in early December when neither of the girl’s parents was home.

Man to plead in painkiller case MINOT (AP) — A former pharmacy worker plans to plead guilty to stealing painkillers from a North Dakota American Indian hospital that was the basis of a congressional investigation by former Sen. Byron Dorgan. Timothy Davis Jr. is charged in federal court with conspiracy to possess and distribute hydrocodone, and acquisition of a controlled substance by misrepresentation. Court documents accuse Davis of manipulating the inventory while he worked as a pharmacy technician with the Quentin N. Burdick Memorial Hospital in Belcourt. Authorities say 48,710 hydrocodone pills were reported missing between May 2009 and June 2010. Dorgan’s report revealed “chronic mismanagement and a lack of employee accountability” at the hospital. Candace Keplin, John Allery and Jordan Delong have been charged in the case. The four defendants are accused of selling the pills for profit.

Autopsy finds woman froze to death WILLISTON (AP) — The state coroner’s office determined that a woman found dead near Tioga froze to death. Lindsay Jensen, 29, of Battleview was found dead Feb. 3 in a field about a mile from her vehicle that was parked along a road. The Williams County Sheriff’s Office says the case remains under investigation.

Human Society to help spay, neuter The Central Dakota Humane Society will offer $15 assistance certificates during February for spaying and neutering of cats and dogs in recognition of Spay Day USA. Certificates are accepted at all local veterinary clinics that treat dogs and cats and several clinics in central North Dakota, where the amount of the certificate is taken off the normal price of a spay or neuter. Central Dakota Humane Society has helped spay nearly 11,000 area animals since 1995, said CDHS shelter director Sue Buchholz. Spaying or neutering pets could eliminate the problem of homeless animals in the community, she said. Statistics show one unaltered cat can give birth to 18 kittens each year and one female dog can give birth to 20 puppies each year. Anyone needing a certificate should call the shelter at 667-2020. Certificates can be picked up at the shelter during regular business hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. For a complete list of veterinary clinics, visit the CDHS website at Certificates must be presented to veterinarians before the spay/neuter surgery is performed. Central Dakota Humane Society’s no-kill shelter is located three miles north of Mandan on state Highway 1806. For more information about CDHS, visit or call 667-2020. — Karen Herzog

Readers’ Theater toasts Irish By KAREN HERZOG Bismarck Tribune The storytelling and spirituality of the Irish will be highlighted at a Readers’ Theater event, “Tales of Ireland: Shamrocks, Fairies and Princes,” upcoming at the University of Mary. “Readers’ Theater also is called ‘theater of the mind,’” said Bev Huschka, U-Mary associate professor of communications, whose oral interpretation students will open their presentations to the public Feb. 17 and 18, reading Irish poetry, fairy tales, short stories, toasts and more. Readers’ Theater brings to life literature not written for the stage, Huschka said. Scenery is absent and props and costuming are minimal. Instead, readers create the descriptions in the minds of the audience. “It’s really exciting, that bond with the audience,”

Huschka said. Huschka’s students will deliver old Gaelic tales and toasts in the often dry and dark Irish humor, “how they endure year after year, war after war, conqueror after conqueror,” she said. Irish is one of the world’s ancient cultures, still weaving in its people much of its early history, including the mystery and mysticism of the Celt, Huschka said. “(The Irish) spirituality is so infused in everything you read, whether the mysticism of the Druids or Christianity,” she said. The literary works illuminate the Irish relationship with nature with the sea, with beauty, she said. Oral interpretation classes give students a better appreciation of the arts and make them better presenters, she said. “They learn through literature about who we are as people, empathy skills, and the world becomes much

broader,” she said. Students will perform Irish poetry, stories and tales at 11 a.m. Feb. 17 and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 18 in Arno Gustin Hall on campus. Irish works will include those by Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, William Allingham and more. “Tales from Ireland: Shamrocks, Fairies & Princes” is free and the public is welcome. Other spring semester Irish-themed events include a visit March 9-11 from Irish literary scholar and poet Ed Madden, winner of the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize, who will host a poetry-writing workshop and give a lecture, and an evening of Irish festivities March 17-19, featuring two one-act Irish plays and Irish music, dance and refreshments.

Escaping a miserable marriage gracefully Dear Annie: I am 26 and have been living with my “husband” for a year. We had a religious ceremony, but didn’t file the legal paperwork. Now I realize it was a huge mistake. I desperately want out of this so-called marriage. “Justin” lied about completing his college education and was unemployed for the first six months we were together. He told me he was applying for jobs, but in reality, he spent his days playing video games and eating junk food. Justin finally found part-time minimum-wage employment, but I still do the cleaning, bill-paying and cooking despite working 50 hours a week compared to his 20. I have asked, begged and nagged him to help more, but he refuses to lift a finger. When I insist, he whines and takes an hour to


do a 20-minute task. Ju s t i n s u f f e r s f ro m depression. Whenever I bring up the idea of an amicable separation, he either becomes enraged and throws the furniture, or dissolves into a sobbing mess and threatens suicide. I, too, have fought and won my own battle with depression through therapy, medication and a wonderful support network. I feel the need to provide a stable environment for Justin, but he refuses to seek treatment. If I leave him, I am terrified

he will harm himself. Justin’s parents are less than sympathetic, and he cannot support himself. I have moved into the second bedroom, and we haven’t had sex for months. Justin insists we are married and everything is fine. Our friends and family have no clue that it’s not legal and our relationship is in shambles. We live in a small religious c o m m u n i t y. A m e s s y breakup could cost me my career. Please help. — Cornered in Kansas Dear Kansas: As much as you want to help Justin, you are not responsible for his mental health or his unwillingness to seek treatment. At some point, his dependence is self-destructive to both of you. You could tell him you will consider staying if he gets therapy immediately. But also talk to your local clergyperson about your

“marriage.” Kansas recognizes common-law marriages, and you could, in fact, be legally bound to Justin. If walking out is not possible, you may need to file the legal paperwork and then get an actual divorce or have the marriage annulled.

Christmas card blues Dear Annie: I am a divorced mother of two college-age girls. Over the years, their father hasn’t bothered to have much contact with them. The problem is, in the past two years, we have received a picture at Christmas of his four little girls by his second wife. This really hurts my daughters’ feelings and just makes me mad. It’s like he is throwing his new family in our faces. It even says “Merry Christmas from the family.” Do you think this

is right? — Disgusted in Penn. Dear Disgusted: It is extremely insensitive, but we don’t believe Dad is trying to be deliberately hurtful. And his wife is likely the one who is doing a mass mailing without considering the recipients. Let your ex know that you appreciate his effort to stay in touch with his children, but ask that he please not send the photograph because it makes them terribly unhappy. We hope he cares enough to do something about it.

Smell you later Dear Annie: Having suffered with body odor and been miserable for well over a decade, your column was a godsend. I followed your readers’ suggestions. I bought zinc supplements and immediately started tak-

ing them. It didn’t seem to help, and then I saw a later column and tried apple cider vinegar. There were days the vinegar stung so severely that I gave up that plan in less than a week. However, by that time, the zinc had taken effect. I am now a very happy camper. Sincere thanks to you and your readers for solving an embarrassing problem when my dermatologist could not. — Smelling Better Dear Better: Thanks for letting us know. We love the way our readers look out for one another. (Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Hope for people with granuloma annulare DEAR DR. GOTT: I would like to know of any effective treatment for granuloma annulare. DEAR READER: This is a chronic skin condition that presents with raised red or flesh-colored lumps that generally appear on the hands, feet, knees and elbows. The lesions often disappear within two years without treatment; however, they may reappear at a later time, and the cycle will repeat itself. The skin may itch, but this is uncommon. When the condition becomes widespread, ringlike patterns may appear over the body and itching becomes more common.

HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be most imaginative when things don’t go as expected. That’s when your eyes open to new challenges. And this afternoon you’ll have a partner in this fun, as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Some of the people around you are stressed but not unhappy. Some kinds of stress actually help your situation. Look deeper and you’ll find that everything is not what it seems. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are still a few changes you’d like to make around your domestic realm. You can’t take it all on at once, but if you make a list, prioritize and focus on one thing at a time, you will make progress by the end of the day. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are happy to answer any question people want to ask you, as long as it’s not about you. You’re in a private mood, and the mysterious aura around you makes someone want to know you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are plenty of people who offer up possible solutions. Be careful who you listen to. Do not take advice from anyone who hasn’t actually accomplished the


thing you want to accomplish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have the gift of gab. Furthermore, you know how to fit in with people with whom you have very little in common. You will skillfully schmooze your way into a sweet situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your body language is a communications asset. In fact, you don’t even have to talk much today because people understand your every look and gesture — you’re that clear. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You will be proactive and progressive when it comes to helping your loved ones, colleagues and friends. Just be sure they really want it before you go after it for them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You’ll be in hot pursuit of an interesting piece of information, and you will quickly learn what you want

to know. Your curious mind never rests, though, and you’ll quickly be on to the next quest for knowledge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You are someone’s rock, and that person will lean on you today. It always makes you feel good about yourself when you can do something that helps others, but this case is especially satisfying. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a tricky balance between being a soft touch, an overall nice and sweet person, and being a pushover who can’t get respect. You achieve that balance today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are so comfortable in your own skin now that you may choose to wear something that gives your physical presence more magnetism. You’ll get attention for this and will enjoy every bit of it.

other week for two months and then will get shots once a month. After three shots, I feel no better. I’m missing out on life because I’m just too tired to do anything. Walgreens carries a sublingual B12 supplement, which I am tempted to take. Do you think it will help? Is there some other factor that could be causing me to feel this way? Any suggestions you can give me would be greatly appreciated. DEAR READER: Vitamin B12 deficiency would cause a number of significant signs, including fatigue, before it would cause true narcolepsy, a chronic sleep disorder. People suffer daytime drowsiness and drop off to sleep at inappropriate times without warning. They may awaken feeling refreshed, fall asleep again, and repeat the pat-

tern. Sleep paralysis may occur, accompanied with vivid dreams and an inability to speak or move during falling asleep or waking. Diagnosis might be accomplished through polysomnography at a sleep center, a sleep latency test that determines how long it takes a person to fall asleep, detailed sleep records and a sleep history presented to your doctor. Vitamin B12 deficiency is relatively rare because the body stores several years worth at a time and a healthful diet to include seafood, milk, cheese and eggs is readily available; however, those with pernicious or megaloblastic anemia, Crohn’s, celiac or Grave’s disease, lupus and excessive alcohol consumption, as well as vegetarians, vegans and the eld-

Michael Crichton, who was best known as an author of science fiction, medical fiction and thrillers, said, “I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.” At the bridge table, I am certain it is best to find a line of play or defense that is a certainty. Can you see one here? You are in six spades. West leads the heart seven. E a s t ’s o p e n i n g b i d showed a good seven-card suit and some 6-10 highcard points.

Here it hit a big fit with part-

Receive a free flash drive ner, who used two doses of Blackwood before signing off in six spades. A good line is to draw the missing trump, ruff a heart in the dummy, cash the club ace, play a club to your king, ruff your last heart, cash the diamond ace, lead a trump to your hand, and play a diamond to dummy’s queen.

Corn reserves hit lowest level in 15 years By CHRISTOPHER LEONARD and SARAH SKIDMORE AP Business Writers S T. L O U I S — U . S . reserves of corn have hit their lowest level in more than 15 years, reflecting tighter supplies that will lead to higher food prices in 2011. Increasing demand for corn from the ethanol industry is a major reason for the decline. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported Wednesday that the ethanol industry’s projected orders this year rose 8.4 percent, to 13.01 billion bushels, after record-high production in December and January. That means the United States will have about 675 million bushels of corn left over in late August when this year’s harvest begins. That’s roughly 5 percent of all corn that will be consumed, the lowest surplus level since 1996. The USDA report, which measures global supply and demand for grains, oilseeds and other crops, said its projections for wheat and soybean stocks remained unchanged at historical low levels for reserves. The price of corn affects most food products in supermarkets. It’s used to feed the cattle, hogs and chickens that fill the meat case, and is the main ingredient in Cap’n Crunch in the cereal aisle and Doritos in the snack aisle. Turned into corn syrup, it sweetens most soft drinks. The decline in reserves caused corn futures to surge, with prices rising 2.4 percent to $6.9025 during morning trading. Corn prices have already doubled in the last six months, rising from $3.50 a bushel to nearly $7 a bushel. Analysts expect the price increases to continue in coming months. “I think we have a chance

JAMESTOWN (AP) — Authorities say someone took about $1,500 worth of camera accessories from the Student Media Center at Jamestown College. Center director Steve Listopad said the college was borrowing the accessories such as power cords and batteries while its own equipment was getting repaired. He said the theft is odd because the thieves left the camera itself behind. He said the college plans to monitor the eBay online auction site.

Bill seeks higher ed funding reform North Dakota should look at changing how the state gives money to colleges, legislators and Gov. Jack Dalrymple said Wednesday. A state Senate bill would set up a 14-member commission to come up with new ways of distributing higher education money. Supporters said the state should peg aid to performance standards, such as how many students graduate on time, and should consider how much it costs to educate different types of students. “This bill is a direct result of considerable dissatisfaction with how North Dakota funds higher education,” Dalrymple told the Senate Education Committee during a hearing Wednesday. “It’s proven over time to be very lacking in effectiveness.” — Associated Press

Plane engine catches fire, none hurt MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Delta airplane engine caught fire Wednesday as it was pulling away from a gate at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Just two crew members were on the Boeing 757 when one of the two engines ignited. Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski said no one was hurt and the fire quickly extinguished when the pilot shut down the plane, which was towed back to the gate. Delta spokesman Anthony Black told The Associated Press the fire was excess fuel burning. No passengers were aboard. The jet was being ferried to JFK International Airport in New York and was not in service at the time.

Fire damages NDSU building FARGO (AP) — A fire of undetermined origin damaged a metal storage building at North Dakota State University on Wednesday. Terry Skunberg with the school’s Animal Nutrition and Physiology Center saidthe building was used by the entomology lab to store grain drying equipment and a tractor or two. University spokesman Najla Amundson said some seed experiments were being conducted in the building. The extent of damage wasn’t immediately determined.

Overland flooding come by, he said. The number of designated sandbagging sites will be determined by how rapidly the snowmelt is in the coming weeks. “ L a s t y e a r, w e h a d 11 sites,” Stockert said. He continues to monitor the risk through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, reports from the city public works department and projections from the National Weather Service. “In terms of ice jams, we are cautiously optimistic,” Stockert said. “The corps is running releases higher and we’re told the ice is thinner this year.” The higher releases of 26,000 cubic feet per second will make room for more storage upstream on the Missouri and help keep the river channel more open and moving underneath the ice, he said. Stockert cautioned, however, that the National Weather Service does not make any forecasts about ice jams, and said they are difficult to predict. Conditions appear less risky for ice jams for now. “The thinner the ice, that lowers the probability of it piling up,” Stockert said. The corps will lower its releases as tributaries such as the Knife River start melting into the Missouri,

Continued from 1B Stockert said. “The corps is doing the m o n i t o r i n g ,” St o c k e r t said. City crews will do cuts to open storm water inlets as needed, he said. Stockert advises homeowners and businesses that have experienced flooding to prepare again before the spring melt hits. “You can clear snow away from your basement, foundation and window wells,” he said. “You can place extensions on gutters and downspouts so it will (move the melt) 6 feet away.” Stockert said it’s also a good time to test sump pumps and consider getting a flood insurance policy. There is a 30-day waiting period for flood insurance benefits to be effective. Studies show flooding does occur 25 percent of the time in areas believed to be eve a lower risk, he said. Stockert continues to work with Burleigh County Emergency Manager Mary Senger. and he participates in the county flood planning meetings with a number of agencies, including the weather service. The next flood planning meeting is Feb. 18. Updated flood information for Bismarck can be found at

Park Board updates policy WasteBy LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune T h e B i s m a rc k Pa r k Board updated its accounting and procedure policy Wednesday in a brief special meeting. The policy now states that quotes obtained for smaller purchases must be documented. Copies of the quotes must be kept for one year. The policy requires that: ■ Reasons for obtaining only one quote for purchases must be documented. ■ The park board must approve purchases costing $25,000 or more for bidding. The bids must be advertised. ■ Public improvement construction projects costing more than $100,000 must be advertised for three consecutive weeks and meet state law. ■ Multiple prime bids for the general, electrical and mechanical portions

of a project are required when they exceed $100,000. ■ Bids will be read aloud after public notice and be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. Commissioners may reject bids that they find unsatisfactory. ■ If the park board declares an emergency situation, it may contract for a public improvement project without a bid. ■ Managers may purchase commodities or services through the state’s cooperative purchasing agreement if the cost is less than $25,000. All purchases should be approved by the assistant park director. The board also required that the park board director infor m the board about upcoming land acquisitions, sales, transfers and management agreements. The policy upgrades were partly driven from questions that came after

parks and recreation director Steve Neu was suspended briefly last spring; he failed to bid out the building for biomass heating system at the Bismarck State College Aquatics and Wellness Center. The park board agreed to tweak the policy so it would better spell out how quotes and bids should be documented on its major projects and purchases in the future. “The whole policy manual hasn’t been updated for several years. I think it gives guidelines to the director and other division managers where their boundaries are,” said park board member Mike O’Brien. Park board president Brian Beattie said it creates less confusion for staff about amount requirements for quotes and bids. (Reach reporter LeAnn Eckroth at 250-8264 or

Nurse allegedly took patient meds By AMY FORLITI Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota nurse who was supposed to sedate a patient before surgery instead took most of the painkillers for herself and told the patient to “man up” — giving him such a small dose of medication that he was writhing in pain on the operating table, according to criminal charges filed Wednesday. Sarah May Casareto, 33, of Forest Lake, was charged with one count of theft of a controlled substance, a felony. She allegedly told officers she was addicted to pain medications. According to the complaint, a man, identified only by his initials, went to Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis on Nov. 8 to have kidney stones surgically removed. Part of the procedure involves inserting a tube into the patient’s back and down into the kidney. Before the surgery, a

doctor told the patient he wouldn’t feel pain. Patients are normally heavily sedated or asleep during the procedure. But Casareto, a nurse anesthetist, allegedly told the man “you’re gonna have to man up here and take some of the pain because we can’t give you a lot of medication,” the complaint said. During surgery, the patient told doctors he was experiencing the worst pain, describing the feeling as “very long needles going through my skin and down into my kidney,” the complaint said. The patient said he could feel someone holding him down, and heard one person ask about using restraints. Meanwhile, hospital staff told police Casareto was distracted and disoriented, kept falling asleep, and was gesturing and talking loudly. One hospital technician told police the patient was screaming and moaning, and Casareto told him to “go to your beach, go to your happy

place,” the complaint said. After the procedure, the technician found two syringes, with labels missing, in Casareto’s pocket. A review of medial documents showed the patient only received about onethird of the Fentanyl he was supposed to get, while some of the drug was missing, the complaint said. Hospital officials later found four empty syringes in Casareto’s pocket and asked her to take a drug test. She refused, and resigned, the complaint said. Casareto did not immediately return a phone message left by The Associated Press. Abbott Northwestern spokeswoman Gloria O’Connell said she couldn’t discuss current or former employees. “Any time there is a suspicious situation, we investigate it,” she said “We have policies and procedures in place to protect the safety of our patients, which is our primary concern.”

to-fuel plant proposed By MARY GARRIGAN Lee News Network RAPID CITY, S.D. — A California company that hopes to build a $69 million plant near a landfill to turn municipal waste into high-octane synthetic fuel is generating a lot of interest and some skepticism on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. EchoTech Fuels President Linda-Rose Myers said her company wants to put Pine Ridge on the high-performance racing map by building a plant on tribal land next to the Red Shirt Table landfill. If built, it would be expected to turn 100 tons of regional trash, plastics and used tires into 320 barrels per day of an advanced synthetic fuel called TorqazineRF, Myers said. The Oglala Sioux tribe signed a memorandum of understanding with EchoTech in August that would provide land, water and electricity in exchange for a facility that promises 40 permanent jobs and an end to the solid-waste management problems that have plagued the landfill sites for years. “We see this plant as a great opportunity for economic development in one of the poorest rural areas in America,” Myers said. Bob Pille, an environmental protection program director for the tribe, remains skeptical about the plant and its prospects, however. “I want it to be true, but there are so many unanswered questions right now that I’m a huge skeptic,” he said. Myers insists that once various private equity investors and institutional finance sources are in place, construction on the plant could begin as soon as this summer.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2011 Winter survival: Not a ‘G-rated’ show for wildlife PAGE 3C



Are we there yet? In case you were wondering, the first day of spring rolls along March 20. At least that is what the calendar says. We all know in North Dakota that dates on the calendar are a subjective kind of thing.


There have been times I have been able to take a nap on my parents’ lawn after Easter dinner. Hopefully, that will be case this year with a late Easter. In the meantime, while the snow is still belt buckle-deep in most places, we have the 2011 Legislature to keep us at least somewhat occupied, if not mildly amused. While there haven’t been many Earth-shaking bills to come out of the session yet, there have been a few interesting ones. As an update, there are about a handful of bills that have been defeated so far. Not surprisingly, they have had to do with non-resident licensing; a non-resident senior citizen license that would be good for the entire season, a non-resident small game and waterfowl license for the entire season and changing the current nonresident waterfowl license to give hunters three weekends rather than two. All failed, but the two bills dealing with out-of-state waterfowl hunters were defeated on close votes. The other bill that fell would have given deer hunters an additional bonus point in the lottery if they applied in a unit where they lived. There are a few bills left that have me wondering. The Senate heard a proposal that would ban Internet hunting. There are, or at least have been in other parts of the country, outfits that have offered this kind of “hunt.” You can sit behind your computer screen, aim the cross hairs with your mouse and click and fire when workers herd the deer of your choice withing firing range. I’m guessing this is not a real issue in North Dakota, but one never knows. Apparently, 35 states in the country have laws banning the the practice. No action has been taken as of yet. The other bill that made me curious was the proposal to change the definition of a firearm or weapon to exclude muzzleloaders. Say what? If it looks like a gun, acts like a gun and shoots projectiles like a gun, isn’t it a gun? Continued on 2C


42nd Tribune Sport Show “It really is something anyone can get involved in, and it helps keep a real family atmosphere.” Taylor Nicholson of Dock Dogs, on the canine event’s appeal

Family-friendly outdoors show opens Feb. 18 By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune The 2011 edition of the Bismarck Tribune Sport Show, Feb. 18-20, could be one of the most familyfriendly shows in its 42-year history. The main attraction for this year’s show will be three days of competition with Dock Dogs, the water competition seen on many outdoor television networks. Dock Dogs is a national competitive circuit that tests dogs’ athletism in three events: big air, extreme vertical and speed retrieve. In 2010, Dock Dogs hosted 150 events in 135 cities, including Sydney, Australia. Although the event is a series followed from city to city by the dogs and their handlers, local dog owners can enter their dogs in the competition. Taylor Nicholson of Dock Dogs said people can enter their family dog in the event, and after qualifying jumps, the dogs are placed in flights. “At a California event, we had a Great Dane and a Chihuahua jump the same distance,” Nicholson said. “It really is something anyone can get involved in, and it helps keep a real family atmosphere.” Nicholson said dogs are put into groups according to age and ability, from six months up to 7 years old. There is a $20 registration fee, and owners can register their dogs at the show or online at and save $5. On site registrations/practice are at 3 p.m. Feb. 18, 9 a.m. Feb. 19 and Feb. 20. Check out the sport show website for a complete schedule at And if you are into walleye fishing, the show has a couple of wall-

42nd Tribune Sports Show Feb. 18, 3-9 p.m. Feb. 19, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Feb. 20, noon to 5 p.m. ■ Admission: $3 adults, $1 kids 6-12, Free for kids 5 and under with paid adult.n ■ For a complete lineup of events and exhibitors, visit eye authorities to help you put more fish in your boat. Professional angler Gary Parsons will be one of the featured speakers on walleye fishing Feb. 19-20. Parsons will give tips and information on the latest tactics and gear in the world of walleye fish at 12:45 and 4:45 p.m. Feb. 19 and at 12:45 p.m. Feb. 20. For a more local flavor, Jon Kurt Shirado and Jason Wright, hosts of the Bismarck-based television show “Ultimate Outdoor Adventures,” will host a seminar at 11:15 a.m. Feb. 19 focused on fishing the Missouri River and Lake Oahe. The duo will concentrate on trolling with lead core and rigging to get down to where the big fish live. Wright said the rise in water levels on the Missouri River and Lake Oahe has opened up walleye fishing opportunities. One of the presentations will focus on using lead core line. Wright said while anglers must have the right equipment, there are some misconceptions about lead core. One is that lead core is used primarily for deeper water situations. That’s not the case, he said. “A lot of times, we use lead core

With the smaller baits, it allows anglers to use their trolling motor or kicker to move that bait up or down and stay out of potential trouble spots. Lead core is a good method when the fish are scattered or finicky, allowing anglers to cover some water and locate fish. “It’s another method that fishermen can use in those tough fishing situations,” Wright said. Another seminar will cover live bait rigging to catch fish in areas

with is a lot of submerged vegetation, a common scenario on both Oahe and Lake Sakakawea. If you have or are thinking about adding a new hunting dog to your family, a pair of seminars with Dan Murray of Absolute Gun Dogs is available. Murray will cover basic obedience training for your new dog and training your dog to make good decisions. Those sessions are scheduled for 10:15 a.m. Feb. 19 and 2:45 p.m. Feb. 20. Also scheduled are seminars covering marathon training, hiking opportunities in North Dakota and Continued on 2C

OUTDOORS DIGEST Spring light goose Solunar tables licenses available Feb.11 Light goose hunters planning to hunt during North Dakota’s spring season can purchase a license online at the state Game and Fish Department’s website. Residents can hunt during the spring season by having last fall’s 2010-11 bird licenses. Otherwise, hunters will need to purchase either a 2011-12 combination license or a small game, and general game and habitat license. Nonresidents, regardless of age, need a 2011 spring light goose season license. The cost is $50 and the license is good statewide. Nonresidents who hunt the spring season remain eligible to buy a fall season license. The spring season does not count against the 14-day fall hunting season regulation. Licenses are available only from the Game and Fish Department’s Bismarck office, the department’s website at or by calling 800-406-6409. North Dakota’s spring light goose season officially opens Feb. 19, but hunters shouldn’t expect to see geese migrate through anytime soon. Hunters must obtain a new Harvest Information Program registration number before venturing out into the field. Those purchasing a license are able to register with the HIP at that time. Otherwise, hunters should call 888-634-4798. The HIP number is good for the fall season as well, so spring hunters should save it to record on their fall license. The Game and Fish Department will provide hunters with migration updates once geese have entered the state. Hunters can

If a muzzleloader were no longer classified a weapon, they could conceivably go hunting. This bill was heard early in the session and so far, no action has been taken. Another bill that has received a “do pass” recommendation would create a youth season for pronghorn antelope. It has been referred to committee for further work, and while it is probably a good bill, it does have some issues. There was no pronghorn season last year, and

with the way the winter is going this year, it may be a while before the season on pronghorns is reopened. And there is the matter of scheduling. Bow season opens the Friday before Labor Day. Two weekends later, the youth deer season and youth waterfowl seasons open, then the early resident waterfowl opens, followed by the regular pronghorn gun season opener a week after that — that is if there is one. Tough to fit all of that into September. Should be interesting to see how these bills shake out. (Reach reporter Brian Gehring at 250-8254 or

Winter survival: Not a ‘G-rated’ show for wildlife

State parks taking reservations

As snowstorm after snowstorm this winter dumped white blankets across the prairie, waves of concern have built up to match the drifts in my backyard. Family and friends worry about traveling and over-the-road drivers endure ice and other substandard travel conditions. Suffice it to say that most would prefer a little less snow and warmer temperatures — wildlife included. To find fun in a snowy cold winter, one needs to look at ice fishing, predator hunting, snowshoeing and other winter activities. But even after a few hours of snowshoeing, my mind drifts toward summers spent on the fishing pier catching bluegills with the kids. Even for a lifelong North Dakota resident, winters like this aren’t easy. And after our own safety and peace of mind are consid-

The North Dakota State Parks online and phone center will begin taking reservations for the 2011 camping season beginning Tuesday, allowing campsite reservations to be made 95 days prior to arrival. State parks officially open May 20, and the 95-day reservation window allows visitors to make sure they have a campsite or cabin ready upon arrival. Reser vations can be made 24 hours a day with the exception of the first day of the 95-day window, these reservations will be available beginning at 7 a.m. In 2011, campsite reservations may be made for May 20 through Sept. 5, except for Grahams Island State Park and Fort Ransom State Park. Stays at state parks are limited to 14 consecutive days. Reserved sites at Fort Ransom State Park are available through Sept. 30. The opening day of reservations for Grahams Island State Park campsite, cabin and group facilities is being postponed until May 1, 2011. Due to the rising water levels of Devils Lake (as forecast by the National Weather Service), there is potential for limited park access. For those already having made reservations at Grahams Island State Park, contact state parks headquarters at 328-5357 for questions. Cabins, shelters, meeting halls and rooms may be made one year in advance. Reservations may be made either online at or by calling the toll-free reservation line, 800-807-4723.


ered, questions pop up about winter and wildlife. It’s a natural progression of concern, wondering how the creatures that share winter will fare. In short, for most animals, winter is about survival. The strong will survive and the weak ... may not. I’ve often explained that nature is sometimes not rated “G.” Some animals eat other animals and at times other animals do not find enough to eat and slowly succumb to the elements. It’s a scene played out across the Badlands and Plains, where it’s survival of the fittest and not every story will have a

happy ending. In a winter like this, reports about deer and pheasants capture the most interest, but the winter marathon is all-inclusive, from rabbits and coyotes to pronghorn and grouse. I’m like most people in that I’d like to see animals survive, but I understand it doesn’t always work that way, and mortality from starvation and disease occurs even in the mildest of winters. I field many questions from people who wonder what can be done to help wildlife survive a cold and snowy winter. In actuality, the basic needs of wildlife remain constant through all seasons. Food and shelter are always important. Establishing suitable winter cover takes a long time. As such, many well wishers assume that feeding wildlife is a relatively easy means of helping out. At first glance it may

seem beneficial, but while food is a necessity, putting out a bale or dumping corn isn’t advised. While struggling animals are visible reminders of winter’s influence, deep snow and cold also can make life difficult for fish under the ice in some waters. While we don’t have to worry about winterkill in big lakes such as Devils Lake or Lake Sakakawea, low dissolved oxygen levels are recurring problems in winters with deep snow. Snow that accumulates on ice prevents sunlight from reaching aquatic plants. If the plants are not absorbing sunlight and producing oxygen, the oxygen content in the water can fall to the point where fish can no longer survive. Two years ago, with record or near-record amounts of snow across the state, about 40 North Dako-

ta lakes suffered at least some winterkill. With similar conditions this year, fisheries managers are already concerned. It’s too early to tell what lakes might have the greatest potential for winterkill, and even if we could identify which ones were likely to have the most trouble, there’s not much that we could do. The silver lining, of course, is that deep snow means additional water added to lakes in spring, which in the long run is good for future fisheries potential. And at this juncture of winter, an upside, even if it’s down the road, is a good thing to think about. (Doug Leier, a former game warden, is a North Dakota Game and Fish Department biologist.

which to insert acorns, and also chopping up acorns to eat, and excavating their nest. The nest represents a huge accomplishment for these restless active birds, digging a hole 19 inches deep and less than two inches in diameter. So to observe acorn woodpeckers, a birder must go to where oak trees grow. One group of these unusual birds will occupy an area of about 15 acres in size, and the closest the next group of these birds will be is several miles away. They live only from sea level up to 2,500 feet elevation on the West Coast, in Arizona and New Mexico and east to Big Bend National Park, Texas. Big Bend acorn woodpeckers have been called ant-eating woodpeckers. We always found them in the campground of Davis Mountains State Park, near Fort Davis, Texas. Those bird-friendly park rangers there maintain a marvelous large-bird feeding station behind a wooden wall provided with

peep holes for surreptitious viewing. The acorn woodpecker has been called the clown bird because of the harlequin colors on its head. There is a wide swath of bright yellow on the neck of the male. The forehead is bright white. The brilliant red of the crown extends down to its nape, but is separated from the white forehead by a black band in the female. No other bird has a prominent unbroken white circle around a black eye, set in a solid black background. But do not underestimate a bird that someone considers a clown. There have been cases of mortal battles between these and other species of woodpeckers. Is there any other species of bird that consists of an extended family centering around a communal food cache and is looked upon by some birders as being a clown? (Kenneth J. Johnson is a retired Bismarck physician and author of three books on birding.)

Odds and ends ■ Mount Vernon, Wash.

Now, this may take a while A man is trying to raise $1 million — in pennies — to help needy families in a Washington state town. Rand O’Donnell has already raised more than $4,000 for the “Mountain of Hope” fund for Mount Vernon families. He recently used a wheelbarrow to deposit 56,600 pennies — $566 — at the north Coast Credit Union. The load weighed more than 300 pounds. O’Donnell hopes the fund will generate enough interest income to provide a steady source of revenue for the Skagit County Community Action Agency, which helps families with emergency food, fuel and clothing. ■ Towson, Md.

Either way, it was a bomb

A Maryland man has been charged after police said he left a toilet made to look like a bomb outside a county office building. Duane Davis Sr. was charged late Monday with placing a phony destructive device outside the old Baltimore County courthouse. Police said a cell phone, an electronic device and a note signed by the 51-year-old Davis were attached to the toilet decorated with newspaper clippings and photos. Davis is being held, with bail set at $200,000. He is also charged with making a false statement on Facebook about leaving destructive devices outside the building. ■ Cleveland

The most sympathetic jury

At least three jurors in Cleveland say the evidence was so thin against a man jailed for weeks in an assault case that they want to give him their juror pay. The jury quickly acquitted 19-yearold Demrick McCloud on Friday. He’d been charged with leading other teens to beat a high school student and threaten him with a gun on Oct. 13. McCloud was arrested that day and held until the trial. The three jurors said there was a “sheer lack of evidence,” so they’ll each give McCloud the $100 they were paid for jury service if he earns a high school equivalency degree. From wire reports

People and personalities Lohan pleads not guilty to felony theft LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty Wednesday to felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace — the most serious charge yet filed against the troubled starlet who has wrestled with drug and alcohol abuse for years. “You’re in a different situation Lohan: Pushing luck? now that a felony has been filed,” Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz scolded Lohan after she entered the plea through her attorney. “Everybody else has to follow the law. You’re no different than anyone else. So please, don’t push your luck.” Saying it appeared Lohan had violated her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case, Schwartz set bail at $40,000 and warned that if she was accused of breaking the law while free, he would have her held without bail. Lohan, 24, posted bail and was released about an hour after the hearing. She spoke little during the arraignment, except to acknowledge her name and that she understood the charge and possible consequences. Lohan could face up to three years in state prison if eventually convicted of stealing the necklace in January from a Venice Beach store. The “Mean Girls” star has remained in the spotlight throughout her legal problems. Wednesday, she was met by a swarm of photographers and TV cameras when she arrived at the courthouse in a white dress and sunglasses. The jewelry case is not Lohan’s only legal concern. Prosecutors in Riverside County are considering whether to charge the actress with battery for an altercation with a rehab worker at the Betty Ford Center in December. The worker was fired after giving an on-camera interview to celebrity website TMZ, but district attorney’s spokesman John Hall has said the allegation against Lohan was under review. Schwartz was the third judge in seven months to warn the actress she was facing serious jail time if she broke the law. Defense attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said Wednesday that Lohan was interested in an early disposition program where she could work out a deal to keep the case from going to trial. Holley also said Lohan has received good reports from her

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz splitting LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are falling out of marriage. Simpson filed for divorce from the Fall Out Boy bassist on Wednesday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences, court records show. The singer and actress is seeking physical custody of their 2-year-old son. “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the former couple said in a joint statement. “We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority.” Simpson married Wentz in May 2008 and her court filing does not indicate when the couple broke up.

Garth Brooks raises $5M for flood relief NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Garth Brooks’ December concert series at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena is expected to bring in $5 million for flood relief in Tennessee. The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee on Wednes-

Golden-voiced man in sober house COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio homeless man whose deep voice made him a web phenomenon has left rehab and says he’s still fielding job offers. Ted Williams said on CBS’s “Early Show” on Wednesday that he’s “trying to keep a level head and come to one decision.” He says he felt that going to rehab was a “rushed decision” and he left after two weeks. Williams says he’s living at a sober house in California and hopes to do voiceover work there. He didn’t say what his job offers were. He says he’s working to redevelop relationships with his children and that the problems he had are behind him.

Out-of-state students good for us North Dakota has always had isolationist, some might say xenophobic, tendencies. They might be traced to the state’s geographical situation, landlocked and a long way from urban America or any place other than Canada, which is a comfortable neighbor and a sort of cousin. It is also part of the state’s conservative nature; not liking difference or change. Some tendencies are good. And some we should resist. Given the evolving global marketplace, isolationism is one tendency to downplay. Bringing students from far and wide to the state’s college and university campuses guards against being too contained in our views of the world. Several bills in the North Dakota

Legislature would penalize or dock the North Dakota University System for enrolling students from anywhere other than North Dakota and Minnesota, with whom the state has a reciprocal-tuition agreement. The motivation is understandable. Why should North Dakota taxpayers subsidize students from elsewhere? Expanding the experience of North Dakota students by exposing them to people and cultures from other places, even other countries, certainly has value. It’s not unheard of for a young North Dakota graduate working at 3M or a commodity trading com-

pany to find himself or herself on a marketing team with members from three or four foreign countries. Exposure to differences like these can give our graduates a more confident position in a very complicated world. Knowing how to act has value. Of course, there’s the whole thing about fixed costs not being affected by the number of students, which stands up until the number of foreign students pushes the university to increase those fixed costs. The research work going on at the state’s schools, and the economic development spin-off from the college- and university-based

centers of excellence, thrives on bringing the best and the brightest students to campus, no matter their place of birth. This is an ongoing investment the state makes in its future. Make no mistake, North Dakota colleges and universities have a high percentage of out-of-state students, about 45 percent. If the legislators deem that too high, let them instruct the state Board of Higher Education to bring the number down in a rational fashion that does not diminish the quality of education. The hard and fast rules presently on the lawmakers’ agenda will hurt North Dakota students and their prospects. North Dakota offers the state’s students a quality education. Let’s not go backward.

VOICES OF THE PEOPLE ‘There you go again’ still timely

Lion kills were common sense

By CALVIN L. SCHAIBLE Fargo Last Sunday, our nation celebrated 40th President Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. Reagan never let political tactics take precedence over the vision of freedom he had for the American people. He was at his best when he was challenged to defend his ideals. Jimmy Carter found out the hard way. He lost his debate to the 40th president when he made the mistake of challenging Reagan on health care reform. Carter told a half-truth and Reagan was not about to let him get away with it. Reagan’s rebut of “There you go again” is thought to have won him the American people. Reagan went on to defeat Carter in a landslide election. The new Republican leadership in the House of Representatives, and the Republicans recently elected, need to follow President Reagan’s model. They need to be bold, confident, reassuring and willing to show leadership.


Their willingness to cut only $32 billion out of a $3.8 trillion budget is a sure sign of timidity. The way President Barack Obama and the Democrats increased discretionary spending over the last two years, the American people simply will not believe that Republicans are unable to cut the $100 billion they promised.

When rancher Bill Jorgenson killed the mountain lions in his barn, it had nothing to do with hunting or being sportsmanlike. Shooting the lions was a matter of survival and common sense. Calving time is rapidly approaching. Many ranchers and/or their family members will be prowling around in barns and pens with flashlights checking on cows and heifers that are due to calve. A female lion and her kittens, with no fear of humans, would love to set up camp in such an environment where life could be so good and food plentiful in the form of newThe Republicans need to state for the sake of the born calves.

Egyptians will tell us how this one ends WASHINGTON — Sixty years ago, American politics was embittered by an accusation couched as a question: “Who lost China?” The implied indictment was that America had fumbled away a possession through incompetence or sinister conniving. In 1949, when communists came to power there, America bestrode both hemispheres shattered from war. Americans thought their nation was at the wheel of the world and that whatever happened, wherever, happened at America’s instigation, or at least its sufferance, or was evidence of American negligence. It is a sign of national maturity — the product of hard learning, from Korea and Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan — that fewer American complainers are today faulting the Obama administration for not anticipating and shaping events in Egypt. Israel, which lives next door to Egypt and has an excellent intelligence service, did


not see this coming. So, a modest proposal: Those Americans who know which Republican will win next year’s Iowa caucuses can complain about those who did not know that when a Tunisian street vendor set himself on fire, he would set a region afire. From all other Americans, forbearance would be seemly. It also would be amazing because there is a cottage industry of Barack Obama critics who, not content with monitoring his myriad mistakes in domestic policies, insist that there must be a seamless connection of those with his foreign policy. Strangely, these critics, who correctly doubt the propriety and capacity of the U.S. government controlling our

Knowing the United States is not in control is a sign of maturity

complex society, simultaneously fault the government for not having vast competence to shape the destinies of other societies. Such critics persist because, as Upton Sinclair wrote in 1935, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” America has one source of leverage over Egyptian events — the close relations between that nation’s military leadership and America’s, including the material dependence of the former on U.S. assistance. But saying that Egypt’s military is the nation’s most impressive institution constitutes faint praise. Can Egypt’s soldiers finetune a whirlwind? It is largely forgotten that when Mikhail Gorbachev began contemplating reform of the Soviet Union — before things spun out of control, as they have a way of doing — he imagined only a more efficient communism still administered by a oneparty state. Today, residual sentimentality about him obscures the fact that real multiparty pluralism was not in his original plans. And two decades later, it still is not in Russia’s foreseeable future.

If there are Egyptian elections soon, America will be tempted to try to influence them. It did that successfully in Italy in 1948, where there was a substantial danger that communists would win. In Italy then, however, unlike in Egypt today, there were two clear sides — the Cold War was taking shape. And there was a more recent and robust parliamentary tradition, including political parties, than in Egypt. In the National Endowment for Democracy and elsewhere, the U.S. government has access to reservoirs of talent for helping Egypt improvise an infrastructure of representative government. But this must be done with exquisite delicacy because, happily, the Egyptian regime is being shaken primarily by nationalists. An encouraging aspect of the Egyptian protests is the widespread waving of the nation’s flag. Western intellectuals, who tend toward cosmopolitanism, tend to disdain the nationstate and nationalism as aspects of humanity’s infancy, things to be outgrown. But the nation gives substance and structure to the secular pride and yearnings of the Egyptian people, who are demo-

graphically young but culturally ancient. Indelicate American assistance for democratization could cause a recoil from those crowds eager to be proud of an Egyptian outcome. The question is: What comes after whatever comes next? In March 2003, as U.S. forces fought toward Baghdad, a then two-star general, David Petraeus, speaking to The Washington Post’s Rick Atkinson, “hooked his thumbs into his flak vest” and spoke five words that have reverberated ever since: “Tell me how this ends.” Next, Petraeus said five unremembered words: “Eight years and eight divisions?” Atkinson explained: “The allusion was to advice supposedly given the White House in the early 1950s by a senior Army strategist upon being asked what it would take to prop up French forces in South Vietnam.” We still do not know how the process begun by America’s intervention in Iraq will end — or, for that matter, how to mark the “end” of a great historical convulsion. In Egypt, Egyptians will tell us how it ends. (George Will writes for the Washington Post. His syndicated column appears Sundays and Thursdays.)

Foster: An impact player U-Mary forward is Marauders’ top scorer


U-Mary men seek revenge

By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune Un i v e r s i t y o f M a r y women’s basketball coach Fred Fridley was looking for an impact player. Nobody fit the bill better than McKenzie Foster of Big Timber, Mont. Foster blew out her left knee at an AAU tournament the summer between her junior and senior years of high school. Recovery time took six months. Meanwhile, Foster F o s t e r watched her high school team struggle to a 2-12 record. “I figured since I couldn’t help them out physically, I could help them out verbally,” said Foster, a redshirt freshman. “I traveled with them to every game. I did pep talks and prayers before each game. It was hard to see them lose over and over and to know you couldn’t do anything about it.” Foster returned for the district tournaments that

“The thing I noticed about McKenzie was that she could put up points in a hurry and she can score from different places on the floor, which was the most intriguing aspect of her game,” Fridley said.

Foster has made an impact on the Marauders this season. She’s the first player off the bench, and her job is to provide instant offense. The 5-foot-10 forward leads U-Mary in scoring with 10.1 points a game.

She has made 41 of 87 shots from beyond the 3-point arc for 47.1 percent. U-Mary is tied for seventh in the Northern Sun with MSU-Mankato at 8-9. The Marauders are 11-10 Continued on 4D

By LOU BABIARZ Tribune Sports Editor The combination of a slew of injuries to defensemen and a midseason slump compelled Bismarck Bobcats coach Layne Sedevie to revamp his roster. After making two trades last week, Sedevie continued the shakeup, acquiring Blake Schammel and Jason Nash from Fairbanks for future considerations. To make room for the newcomers, Sedevie released forwards Brett Bower and Pat Coyne. The release of Bower, who was scooped up by Owatonna, was something of a shocker. Bower — who had five goals and 11 assists in 38 games this season — was a regular on Bismarck’s 2010 Robertson Cup championship team. With his

He played in 18 games in 2009-10 without recording a point. This season he had no goals and three assists in 12 games. Schammel, a 20-year-old defenseman from Red Wing,

Minn., has split time between Owatonna and Fairbanks this season. He has four goals and five assists with just two penalty minutes in 32 games. Playing for the Express last seaNash son he had three goals and five assists and four PIMs. Nash, a 19-year-old defenseman from Oxnard, Calif., is in his third year in the NAHL. He played in 2008-09 with the Wichita Falls Wildcats, recording two goals, six assists and 86 penalty minutes in 48 games. Nash played three games with the Wildcats last season before moving on to the Westside Warriors of the British Columbia Hockey League, where he logged one goal, three assists and 32 PIMs in 35 games.


Brett Bower, a forward, was released by the Bobcats along with Pat Coyne. The Bobcats will be Nash’s fourth team this season. He played 25 games in the BCHL, split between the Warriors and the Trail Smoke Eaters. He had two goals and 14 penalty minutes. In five Continued on 4D

Solen boys looking to make history By MICHAEL WEBER Bismarck Tribune Solen has yet to send a boys basketball team to the Class B state tournament. This season’s team is out to make some history. “The boys are determined to win the district title and go to state,” Solen coach Darrel Iron Shield said. “Solen has won a district title before but has never gone to state. We believe we have the talent to do that this year. We’ve had a good year so far, and if we can put it all together at tournament time, we’ll accomplish that goal.” Solen’s quest begins with the District 9 tournament in Mandan.

against the winner of Friday’s quarterfinal contest between Flasher and Center-Stanton. The Sioux carry a 14-6 overall record and a perfect 6-0 district mark into the postseason. Iron Shield said winning the regular-season district crown was another goal. Included in that 6-0 ledger were road victories over Shiloh Christian and Standing Rock — two teams the Sioux have had difficulty with in recent years. “It’s never easy to beat everybody in your district, especially on the road. Doing that this year was a nice accomplishment,” Iron Shield said. “It gives us some confidence going into the districts, but we know that once the tournaments start, it doesn’t matter what you did before. We have to play well. We have to play our best basketball.”

Bobcats continue revamp of roster Bismarck acquires pair from Fairbanks

University of Mary men’s basketball coach Randall Herbst believes his team has grown up a lot since earlier in the season. Wayne State and Augustana played a big role in helping the Marauders mature. Augustana dealt U-Mary a 6855 setback on Dec. 10 in Sioux Falls, S.D. Wayne State turned back U-Mary 66-55 on Dec. 12 in Nebraska. The Marauders, the hottest team in the Northern Sun, have a chance to redeem themselves this weekend. U-Mary plays host to Wayne State on Friday and Augustana on Saturday. The Marauders (13-4 NSIC, 17-4 overall) have won 10 straight and are in second place in the conference standings. Augustana is third in the conference and Wayne State eighth. “We are a lot better basketball team than we were in early December,” Herbst said. “Our depth in the front line has been effective.

Saints coach resigns after five seasons By Tribune Sports Staff Corey Frink resigned as St. Mary’s girls basketball coach on Tuesday. Frink, who was in his fifth season as head coach, said that it was time for a change. “I walked away. It was my decision,” Frink said. “To be honest, it’s not that I wanted to walk away, but it’s definitely the Frink best thing for me and best for the team.” Frink’s career mark at St. Mary’s was 14-82. The Saints, who are 2-12 this season, host Minot tonight. Frink said that he would continue in his position as a teacher at St. Mary’s Grade School. St. Mary’s athletic director Dan Smrekar did not reply to several phone messages. Frink said he was not certain who would take over as head coach. Prior to coaching at St. Mary’s, Frink had a coaching stop at North Shore-Plaza, coaching the boys for five seasons. Frink also coached baseball at North ShorePlaza for five seasons.

McCarthy believes Packers will be more talented By COLIN FLY AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers coach Mike McCarthy had one final chance Wednesday to go over an injury report, providing a fitting end to Green Bay’s championship season. Cornerback Charles Woodson (broken collarbone) won’t need surgery, wide receiver Jordy Nelson (left knee) p l a y e d through his injury, linebacker A.J. Hawk (wrist) needs an arthroscopic procedure, and wide receiver Donald Driver (ankle) would be out if Green Bay had to play another game. Add those to the 16 other Packers on injured reserve and McCarthy believes his next team will certainly be more talented coming into training camp. That doesn’t mean Green Bay’s title defense will be any easier. “The most important thing is we need to be the best football team next year. We can be maybe the most talented and best football team. But sometimes the most talented team doesn’t win,” McCarthy said. “We have to make sure we’re the best football team, that everybody’s doing their role, doing what they’re supposed to be doing at the level they’re supposed to be doing it.

“Because that was a great experience to watch this group of men pull together and fight through the adversity that they needed to, and play their best football when it counted.” Now, McCarthy said the next lesson the Packers need to learn is how to deal with success after the franchise’s 13th NFL championship and fourth Super Bowl with a 3125 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday. “It’s here, it’s right here, it’ll start with our whole organization, top to bottom,” the coach said. “Handling success, to me, is the biggest challenge in this business.” That’s one of the reasons why defending titles successfully has been so rare. New England last repeated as champion six years ago, and no team from the NFC has even made two consecutive Super Bowls since the Packers did it in 1997 and 1998. McCarthy’s life is already changing in ways big and small. His daily cup of Starbucks coffee had “congratulations” on it Wednesday morning, and he said it’ll take him at least a month to respond to everyone who reached out to him. He’s still thrilled with his chat with President Barack Obama on Monday (“He started with, ’This is a tough phone call for a Bears fan to make“’) and is honored that a street will be named after him somewhere near Lam-

beau Field. Both McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson are in line for contract extensions before their current deals end in 2012. McCarthy declined to directly address his own contract negotiations or which teams contacted the Packers for permission to talk to his assistants. “Continuity is important, but change happens in this business,” McCarthy said. “Time will answer those questions.” The other uncertainty comes after the collective bargaining agreement expires March 3. The end of the labor deal and a potential lockout could mess up everyone’s offseason plans. McCarthy said it also affects negotiations to extend assistant coaches, and even when the Packers might be able to visit the White House because it’s usually attached to an organized team activity or a minicamp. He also sounded less than thrilled about a proposed 18game schedule. “I know what the company line is, but you’re talking to a guy that barely made it through 16, so you can figure that one out for yourself,” he said. No matter when the season begins or how long it might be, Green Bay will have its core in place, led by Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers and his receivers. Running back Ryan Grant

The Packers are also wellequipped to run defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ attacking 3-4 scheme with young stars cornerback Tra-

mon Williams, nose tackle B.J. Raji and linebacker Clay Matthews continuing their development. The abundance of talent also taught McCarthy a lesson about himself. He said he learned to han-

dle his own ego this season by delegating leadership in a variety of ways, including letting the captains talk before games late in the season after getting the idea driving home one day after practice.

Stampede gets the best of Wizards late Tuesday Dakota lets winnable game slip away By LOU BABIARZ Tribune Sports Editor The Dakota Wizards and Idaho Stampede both got off to atrocious starts this season and have been scrambling to keep their slim playoff hopes alive ever since. If the Stampede succeeds, it might be at the Wizards’ expense. For the third time on their franchise record 10-game homestand, the Wizards let a winnable game slip away against the Stampede, falling 121-108 late Tuesday night. “Maybe they just have our number,” Wizards coach Rory White said. “It’s like we can’t get an answer for them.” The Wizards (11-21) had won four straight, passing Idaho in the league-wide standings and for the first time since their 1-9 start getting some real traction. Also working in Dakota’s favor was that the game did-

n’t start until 10:08 p.m. — more than three hours late — due to Idaho’s travel woes. Seven members of the Stampede arrived in Bismarck on Monday night, but the rest of the team’s contingent got held up in Denver. Due to weather and other assorted factors, they didn’t arrive in Bismarck until 8:45 p.m., well after the scheduled 7 p.m. Start. Not surprisingly, the Stampede got off to a slow start. “I figured that would happen, because we didn’t have much time to warm up,” Idaho coach Randy Livingston said. But the Stampede battled back with a huge second quarter, shooting 15-for-23 to build a 60-52 halftime lead. The Wizards responded by turning up the defensive intensity and working the ball in to Chris Johnson and Mike Anderson. Their big men responded with big games. For the second straight game Anderson recorded a season-high 29 points. He also picked up his first double-double, grab-

bing 12 rebounds. Johnson chipped in 25 points and nine rebounds. They combined to make 24 of 34 fieldgoal attempts. Their play helped the Wizards rattle off three 7-0 runs in the third quarter alone, pushing the lead to 85-77 at one point. The game was tight through the first six minutes of the final period, but Idaho dominated the final six minutes. With Idaho leading 10096, Lance Hurdle buried a pair of 3-pointers around a Cedric Jackson bucket, suddenly stretching the margin to 12 points. “Hurdle, I think he likes to shoot in this gym,” White said. “Every single game he’s made shots on us.” When the Wizards tried to fight back, veteran Antoine Walker took command. The three-time NBA all-star had just six points over the first 42 minutes, but went on a personal 8-2 run to put the game out of reach (118-102). Walker finished with 14 points and seven assists. The Stampede got big c o n t r i b u t i o n s f ro m i t s

bench. Sean Banks, who was averaging just 3.0 points in his three games with Idaho, poured in 21. Armon Johnson had 22 points, seven rebounds and five assists. “We have a team,” Livingston said. “We have 10 good players. They all played their part tonight. Sean Banks was awesome off the bench, and so was Armon Johnson.” Idaho began the season 213, but the Stampede has improved to 11-19, just 3½ games out of the final playoff spot with 20 games to play. “This could be a changing moment of our season, to fight through adversity,” Livingston said. “... That’s the way we’re going to play the rest of the season – just loose and have fun and let the chips fall where they may, hopefully with the eighth or seventh seed in the playoffs. The way I see it, you’re going to have five or six teams battling for two spots at the end. Why not us? That’s our mentality.” The Wizards went 5-5 on their 10-game homestand, once again falling behind Idaho in the playoff chase.

“The last four games it seemed like we were doing well,” White said. “You’ve got to know how to handle success. It was another winnable game that we let get out the door.” Stampede 121, ■ NOTES: The announced attendance Wizards 108 inexplicably was 29, but actually several hundred to redeem their tickets for fans turned out for the late- any home game in March, night game.

NHL ROUNDUP Wild 3, Avalanche 2 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Niklas Backstrom turned in another strong performance with 23 saves, and the Minnesota Wild hung on to beat the crumbling Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night. Antti Miettinen, Martin Havlat and John Madden scored for the Wild, who overcame a two-goal game by David Jones. The

Eagle, a senior point guard, is averaging a teamhigh 22 points per game. “Kendrick is the spark of our team,” Iron Shield said. “He gets everything going for us. He shoots and passes the ball very well, and he’s a good defender.” Luger leads the team in rebounding (12.0) and blocks (5.0), and Mutschler is tops in assists (6.0). Other major contributors are Kendall Lester, David Red Stone and Justin Black Cloud. “We’re a pretty wellrounded team,” Iron Shield said. “What’s really nice is everybody can score. On any given night, any one of our guys can light it up.” Solen relies heavily on its quickness. “We’re not a tall team, but we make up for it with speed,” Iron Shield said. “We like to come at teams from all directions ... put the pressure on defensively, and run the floor.” Iron Shield expects a dogfight in Mandan. “You can’t count anybody out,” he said. “Just because you’re the No. 1 or No. 2 team

Continued from 1D “At first, we were hoping he would be ready to return at tournament time, but unfortunately that won’t be the case,” Brandt said. “Casey was a key player for us last year and again this year. He does so many things well.” The Miners started 9-0 with Duppong in the lineup, but lost to Dickinson Trinity and Berthold after the injury. Beulah then won five in a row, but has lost two of its last three. Those two losses were to No. 8 Watford City and No. 3 New Town. “We’ve tried to adjust and we’ve played well for the most part,” Brandt said. “Other kids have stepped up and that’s been a key. Losing two of three is not the way you want to close out (the regular season), but we’re ready for the districts to start. It will be interesting to see how the kids respond.” Beulah is seeded second behind Trinity in the District 14 tournament, which begins Friday at Hazen. Mott-Regent is on a roll heading into the District 13 tournament at Bowman, having won 15 of 16 games. Beulah handed the Wildfire its only loss during that stretch. Napoleon is the top seed in the District 6 tournament at Hazelton, while LintonHMB is second. The Lions closed out the regular season with back-to-back losses after winning their first 17 games.

College notes cient on the defensive end of the floor. I feel like when we are on all cylinders offensively, we are a pretty tough team to stop.” Herbst believes his team grew after the pair of losses in December. “That weekend maybe helped us realize, ‘Hey we better grit our teeth and sharpen up a little bit,’” Herbst said. “It will be a battle.” The Marauders are flying high right now. In addition to the winning streak, they are ranked in the Central Region and received votes in the latest national poll. But, the most important thing is that the Marauders punched their ticket into the postseason tournament. Now, their next goal will be to finish in the top four in the NSIC standings which would give them a home quarterfinal game. “I am relieved we were able to get through last weekend,” Herbst said. “I’m happy for our team. They have worked hard and done it together. It’s been fun to w a t c h t h e m g r ow a n d mature and get things done together.”

holding on for dear life to get into the playoffs. U-Mary (8-9, 11-10) is tied with MSU-Mankato for seventh place in the conference. The top eight teams make the playoffs with the top four hosting. U-Mary coach Fred Fridley said his squad could finish as high as fourth or as low as 11th. The Marauders bounced back from a lackluster effort on Friday against Minnesota-Crookston to clip MSUMoorhead on Saturday. “The league right now is ultra-competitive,” Fridley said. “Each night any team can win. Every team comes out and feels like they can win. I don’t care if you’re the first-place team or the lastplace team. We’re at a level of basketball where you have to come to play every single night or it’s not going to happen for you.” U-Mary was swept by No. 9-ranked Wayne State and Augustana earlier this season.

U-Mary coach Mike Thorson would like to see Jacobson improve by a foot, which should get him into the national meet. “Obviously he would like to be throwing further,” Thorson said. “The thing I think is remarkable is he is very consistent. He just needs to get off a big, big throw to get to nationals. In terms of consistency, he’s had a remarkable career. I’ve never had an athlete that consistent. He really doesn’t ever have a bad meet, which is tough to do in the throws. They are so technical.”

Carlson won the 60-meter hurdles and the long jump for the fourth consecutive meet. She won the hurdles in 8.66 seconds and the long jump with a mark of 20-3½. Schmaltz finished first in the 400 (57.72), the first time she competed in the event this season. ■ Brian Qvale of Williston established a new single season record in blocked shots for the University of Montana men’s basketball team. The 6-foot-11 senior now has 72 blocks on the year, breaking the record of 71 set by Daren Engellant in the 1990-91 season. Qvale’s 72 rejections in 23 games this season ties him for the fifth most in Big Sky Conference single-season history with Kelvin Smith of Idaho, who had 72 blocks in 1982-83.

U-Mary’s McKenzie Foster overall. Several schools had their eyes on Foster, including several NCAA Division II schools and NCAA Division I schools Weber State, Montana State and Lehigh. Foster was an all-state selection as a junior and finished her career playing in three state tournaments. After Foster’s injury, some recruiters backed off. Fridley considers it a fortunate opportunity for U-Mary. Foster showed up on crutches at U-Mary for an official visit. A week later she called Fridley and committed.

“The feeling I got here w a s g o o d ,” said Foster, a nursing major. “The thing that set it apart here from the other Division II schools was that it’s a Christian-based campus.

Foster didn’t think she was mentally ready for college ball, coming off knee surgery and not logging many minutes in the last year. “I was still scared I would tear it again,” Foster said. “I came here almost wanting to play, but getting that extra year was a blessing to mentally refocus and physically get stronger.” While Fridley knew that Foster would bring instant

Continued from 1D offense to his club, her manto-man defensive skills have been a pleasant surprise. “There’s not a whole lot of AAU defense being played, and her high school team played a lot of zone,” Fridley said. “Now, we ask her to not only score the ball for us, there are a lot of times she’s matched up against the other team’s best player, if she’s a wing. “Her defense was something I did not know about her. I noticed it half way through last year. It came from her getting stronger from lifting weights.”

Pistons 103, Cavaliers 94 CLEVELAND (AP) — Forget the NBA record, the Cavaliers are officially as bad as any team in any pro sport. Cleveland’s losing streak reached 26, matching the 1976-77 Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ record for consecutive incompetence on Wednesday night with a loss to the Detroit Pistons, who were supposedly a beatable opponent for the bottomdwelling Cavs. Instead, Cleveland’s season slipped further into shame. The Cavs (8-45) remain winless since Dec. 18 and have now dropped 36 of 37. Their next chance to end the unimaginable slide will be on Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers. Rodney Stuckey scored 22 to pace the Pistons, who didn’t want to be remembered as the team that let the Cavs get off the mat.

Wizards 100, Bucks 85 WASHINGTON (AP) — Nick Young scored a flashy 26 points, JaVale McGee had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards broke an eight-game losing streak with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Young had a flying onehanded baseline dunk in the first half and scored 11 points in the 16-4 run that gave the Wizards a 20-point lead early in the third quarter. Among the highlights: Young picked off a pass, tossed the ball to John Wall, then received an alley-opp pass back from the rookie to finish off the fast break with another one-handed jam. Brandon Jennings scored 20 points to lead the Bucks, who have lost five of six and fell 2½ games behind the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

TORONTO (AP) — DeJuan Blair matched a career high by scoring 14 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, George Hill had 18 points and the San Antonio Spurs won their fourth straight game, beating the Toronto Raptorst. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan each had 16 points and Manu Ginobili 12 as San Antonio won for the 15th time in 17 games. Blair also had 11 rebounds for the Spurs, whose 44-8 record is the best in the NBA. His previous best was 22 points, set in a Jan. 19 home win over Toronto. He also scored 28 against Oklahoma City on Jan. 13, 2010. Andrea Bargnani scored 29 points and DeMar DeRozan had 25 for the Raptors, who have lost 15 of 16.

But a night after a 101-85 loss in Orlando, they had far more energy than the Knicks, building a 20-point lead in the third quarter and holding on down the stretch behind huge plays from Foye.

In two games Olivieri had two goals, one assist and a plus-4 rating. Sommer had a goal and an assist and was a plus-2. LaLonde was a plus-1 and was a physical presence. “We knew Olivieri was a very skilled defenseman, and we expected him to come in and have success,” Sedevie said. “Sommer is a big kid who skates well and competes hard. LaLonde is tough and a good, solid defenseman in his own end.” The news for the Bobcats other defensemen is mixed.

Another local product, former Century all-stater Dan Kovar, is also likely done for the season. Kovar, who is having problems with both shoulders, has been out of the lineup since Jan. 29. The Bobcats are hoping that Dalton Spicer and Charles Aus will return to the lineup soon, possibly this weekend. Spicer, who is out with a thigh contusion, last played on Jan. 15. Aus, who has had a shoulder injury, has been out since Jan. 23. The Bobcats, who have won two in a row, play host to Austin on Friday and Saturday. “It was good to get a couple of wins and let everybody know that we’re back on track,” Sedevie said.

SPORTS DIGEST Vikings: Use lotto $ to help pay for stadium EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings’ lottery scratch-off game was a resounding success in its first year, and now the team hopes to use some of the money generated to help pay for a new stadium. The Vikings partnered with the Minnesota State Lottery and the NFL on a Vikings-themed scratch game. They say that the

game has cleared $12 million in total sales. Vikings Vice President Steve LaCroix says the team wants to include lottery revenue in the bill that would help pay for a new stadium. LaCroix knows it would only be a small part of the tab, but “it could be part of the puzzle.” Gov. Mark Dayton has been cool to the idea of using gambling revenue in a stadium bill, saying it is too

volatile to satisfy bond holders.

Baker leaves UNC for Dallas Cowboys CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina says newly hired assistant coach Brian Baker is leaving to take a job with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Baker will coach the Cowboys’ defensive line, the same position he had with the Tar Heels.

GOP grills Bernanke over inflation threat WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress sharply questioned Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke Wednesday over whether the Fed’s policies are raising the risk of higher inflation in the months ahead. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he is concerned that the Fed won’t be able to detect inflation until “the cow is out of the barn” and inflation is already spreading dangerously through the economy. B e r n a n k e a c k n ow l edged that inflation is surging in emerging economies. But he downplayed the risks to the U.S.

economy, even as lawmakers expressed concerns about rising gasoline and food prices. Inflation in the United States remains “quite low,” Bernanke said. He blamed higher prices on strong demand from fast-growing countries such as China— not the Fed’s policies to stimulate the economy, including buying $600 billion worth of Treasury debt. Bernanke’s remarks suggest the Fed will stick with the bond-buying plan through June, as scheduled. The program is aimed at invigorating the economy by lowering rates on loans and boosting prices on stocks.

Post office had $329 million loss in first quarter WASHINGTON (AP) — The post office continues to lose money at a rapid pace thanks to a requirement that it make advance payments to cover expected health care costs for future retirees. The agency said Wednesday it had a loss of $329 million for the first quarter of the fiscal year — Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, 2010. That was up from a $297 million loss in the same period the year before, which ended with a total loss of $8.5 billion. Without the requirement for advance health care payments, the post office would have had a net profit of $226 million for the quarter, the agency announced. Congress has proposed easing the upfront payments.
