Tribes opposing Basin project in battlefield By LAUREN DONOVAN Bismarck Tribune All of North Dakota’s Native American tribes say they are opposed to a Basin Electric Power Cooperative transmission line the co-op plans to build through the heart of the historic Killdeer Mountain battlefield. The five tribes sent notice of their opposition to the Public Service Commission, which is holding the last of three public hearings on the project today in Williston.
The tribes’ unanimous vote of resolution was signed by Three Affiliated Tribes chairman Tex Hall and Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate chairman Robert Shepherd, according to a statement issued Wednesday by the United Tribes of North Dakota. The two are chairman and secretary respectively of United Tribes. Basin is planning to build a new 200-mile transmission line to carry some 500 megawatts of electricity from its lignite-fired Antelope Valley Station near Beulah into the oil
patch west of Killdeer, through Watford City, Williston and over to Tioga. About eight miles of the line would pass through an area designated for study under the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Program. The North Dakota State University-led study could lead to the battlefield being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. News of the study came just days before the first PSC hearing in Killdeer last week, and Basin quick-
Part of abortion suit is out By JAMES MacPHERSON Associated Press A federal judge has dismissed part of a lawsuit challenging a new North Dakota law that blocks abortions based on unwanted gender or a genetic defect, such as Down syndrome. The state’s sole abortion clinic in Fargo, backed by the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, filed the lawsuit in June. That suit also challenges another new measure that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected; it was temporarily blocked in July. The measures are among four Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed into law this year with overwhelming support by the state’s Republican-led Legislature. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland granted the Red R i v e r Wo m e n’s C l i n i c request to drop the gender and genetic defects part of the lawsuit on Monday. The clinic has said the ban doesn’t affect it because it doesn’t perform abortions for that reason. Hovland dismissed that portion of the lawsuit without prejudice, meaning the clinic can revive a legal challenge later. Janet Crepps, an attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement that “it is not clear that the measure will have a d i re c t i m p a c t o n a n y women seeking abortion services at the Red River Women’s Clinic at this time.” The Bismarck-based fed-
eral judge temporarily blocked the state’s law that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected — as early as six weeks into pregnancy — calling it “clearly invalid and unconstitutional.” Abortion rights advocates call the heartbeat law the most restrictive in the country and an attempt to shutter Red River Women’s Clinic. Supporters of the measure have said it’s a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling that legalized abortion up until a fetus is considered viable, usually at 22 to 24 weeks. The clinic is not challenging another new North Dakota law that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, based on the disputed premise that a fetus can feel pain by then. Clinic officials have said the law does not apply because it doesn’t perform abortions after 16 weeks. Another new law requires a doctor who performs abortions to be a physician with hospital admitting privileges. A lawsuit challenging that measure has been combined with another one challenging a 2011 North Dakota law outlawing one of two drugs used in nonsurgical abortions. East Central Judge Wickham Corwin ruled in July that the 2011 law violates the state and U.S. constitutions. Corwin also signed a preliminary injunction in July blocking admitting-privileges law after opponents argued it would shut down the Fargo clinic.
Demolition of Medora’s oldest buildings halted MEDORA (AP) — Two of the oldest buildings in the western North Dakota town of Medora will remain standing after a proposal to remove them didn’t proceed at at a special Planning and Zoning Board meeting. The plan discussed Tuesday was to tear down Badlands Pizza Parlor and Dakota Cyclery and replace them with a modern-look-
ing building. The biggest issue for most of the speakers at the m e e t i n g , a t t e n d e d by roughly 30 people, was the fate of the bike shop, which specializes in setting up cyclists for trips along the popular Maah Daah Hey Trail in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. “People think it’s one of Continued on 9A
ly moved to pull a planned substation out of the battlefield area. Basin spokesman Curt Pearson said the tribes’ opposition to the project is a significant comment. He said Basin is considering a number of options, including moving the line off the field of battle, but, “We haven’t heard anyone say this is not needed. I don’t think that’s in question.” The oil patch has a huge appetite for electricity and Basin forecasts the region’s peak demand will grow from 800 megawatts now
to more than 2,000 megawatts in the next decade. The co-op said the first of three new gas-fired, 45megatwatt power plants went on line in the oil patch last week. It could be two months before the PSC approves a route permit for the transmission. Its approval will likely be contingent on federal approval of an Environmental Impact Statement, which is expected in March 2014. The environmental OK is required because Basin plans to use federal financing Continued on 9A
With the new property tax funding formula created during the last legislative session, homeowners and businesses like these in north Bismarck can expect lower property taxes from a proposal by the Bismarck School District.
Property taxes are likely to dip By HANNAH JOHNSON Bismarck Tribune The Bismarck School Board plans to reduce the amount of mills levied through property tax by about 26 percent. In 2 0 1 3 , t h e d i s t r i c t l e v i e d 138.39 mills. The proposed amount of mills for 2014 is 101.6 mills. This amount is actually lower that earlier projections, said Ed Gerhardt, the business manager for the Bismarck schools. Lowering property tax was a major goal of the Legislature this year. For public schools, the Legislature changed the funding formula, with the state paying for more of their budgets. As a part of this new funding formula, the Legislature bought down 50 mills of property tax for school districts. Those savings were intended to be passed on to taxpayers. The reason the Bismarck school district’s mills decrease isn’t around that 50 mark is because of new schools already approved by voters. In September 2012, voters author-

ized three new schools — Lincoln and Liberty elementary schools and Legacy High School — to be built, increasing the mill levy in the process. Not including the estimated 14.3 mills levied to pay for the new schools, the total decrease would be about 51 mills. The board opened up a public com-
ment time during its Monday meeting for discussion on the district’s budget and property tax. No one came forward. Assuming a 9 percent increase on the value of a house valued at $150,000 in 2013, the property tax decrease for 2014 would be $186.62, or about 20 percent. Continued on 9A

Accused bride appears in court MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A Mo n t a n a w o m a n accused of pushing her new husband off a cliff in Glacier National Park remained in jail Wednesday as a federal judge considered arguments for her release. Jordan Linn Graham, 22, appeared in a detention hearing at U.S. District Court in Missoula. She has been held in the Missoula County jail since her initial appearance Monday on a charge of second-degree murder in the July 7 death of her husband, Cody Lee Johnson. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch heard from witnesses on both sides on whether Graham should be released while the case is pending. He did not make an immediate ruling, instead saying he will take the arguments under advisement with an order to follow.
Unresolved NYC primary pauses NEW YORK (AP) — As the New York City mayoral race paused Wednesday for remembrances of the Sept. 11 attacks, the chaotic campaign remained without an answer a day after the primary as to whether the top Democratic finisher, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, will be forced into a runoff. With all precincts reporting, the Board of Elections said de Blasio had 40.12 percent of the vote, a whisker above the 40 percent threshold he needs to avoid an automatic Oct. 1 one-on-one showdown with secondplace finisher Bill Thompson. Election officials will recount the votes Friday, according to Board of Elections spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez. And at least 19,038 outstanding absentee and special ballots will be added to the total Monday, she said. The new total could push the Democrats into a runoff.
Colo. recalls show risk of supporting gun control DENVER (AP) — Democratic voters in Colorado helped remove two state senators of their own party who voted for tighter gun control — an ouster that was both intensely local and a national test of what can happen to lawmakers who support gun restrictions in battleground states. The well-organized activists who sought to recall Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron got the backing of gun-rights groups such as the National Rifle Association. It turned out they didn’t need much assistance because voters were already so incensed by passage of the gun-control package. Democrats, who maintain control of the Legislature, said the losses were purely symbolic. But they could be a sign of things to come in 2014.

Nation marks Sept. 11, 2001 anniversary By MEGHAN BARR and JIM FITZGERALD Associated Press NEW YORK — Life in lower Manhattan resembled any ordinary day on Wednesday as workers rushed to their jobs in the muggy heat, but time stood still at the World Trade Center site while families wept for loved ones who perished in the terror attacks 12 years ago. For the families, the memories of that day are still vivid, the pain still acute. Some who read the names of a beloved big brother or a cherished daughter could hardly speak through their tears. “ Ha s i t r e a l l y b e e n 12 years? Or 12 days? Sometimes it feels the same,” said Michael Fox, speaking aloud to his brother, Jeffrey, who perished in the south tower. “Sometimes I reach for the phone so I can call you, and we can talk about our kids like we used to do every day.” On the memorial plaza overlooking two reflecting pools in the imprint of the twin towers, relatives recited the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died when hijacked jets crashed into the towers, the Pentagon and in a field near Shanksville, Pa. They also recognized the victims of the 1993 trade center bombing. Bells tolled to mark the planes hitting the towers and the moments when the skyscrapers fell. “Tribute in Light” searchlights, turned

ND DELEGATION HOSTS SOLDIERS ON 9/11 ANNIVERSARY North Dakota’s congressional delegation is hosting a reception for some North Dakota National Guard soldiers on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. About 150 soldiers with the 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment have been serving in the Washington, D.C., area since spring, helping with homeland security. Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer say it’s fitting to express appreciation for the military on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks. They say North Dakota guardsmen, reservists and regular military soldiers have sacrificed much to help protect the nation. —Associated Press weeping, arm-in-arm. Former Gov. George Pataki, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and others were in attendance. As with last year, no politicians spoke. Mayor Michael Bloomberg watched the ceremony for his final time in office.
Carol Eckna recalled the contagious laugh of her son, Paul Robert Eckna, who was killed in the north tower. “Just yesterday, you were 28,” she said. “Today, you are 40. You are forever young. Dad and I are proud to be your parents.”
Oil in train disaster was mislabeled By ROB GILLIES Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — The oil carried by a freight train that derailed and exploded in Quebec this year had been misclassified as a less dangerous type of crude, Canadian officials said Wednesday, and they urged U.S. and Canadian regulators to ensure dangerous goods are accurately labeled. Forty-seven people were killed in the July disaster when the unattended train rolled away and derailed in the town of Lac-Megantic near the Maine border and several of its oil cars exploded. The downtown was destroyed. The train’s shipment of North Dakota oil was mislabeled as a “Group 3” flammable liquid, when it should have been given a more explosive “Group 2” classification, the Canadian transportation safety board’s chief investigator, Donald
A cameraman records footage of railway from the Lac Megantic train wreck site in Ottawa on Wednesday. Ross, said. Asked if proper labeling would have changed what happened, Ross said the work of the board is not done. Officials initially said they were surprised by the disaster because they thought the oil being transported was unlikely to ignite.
But Ross said the oil was as volatile as gasoline, and tests showed the oil was wrongly documented and should have been classed in the same category as gasoline. Safety regulations for the transport of crude oil differ depending upon the type of oil and its flashpoint — the
lowest temperature at which it will ignite. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada issued safety advisory letters to the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and to Transport Canada. U.S. railroad and hazardous materials safety officials said in a joint statement that they are still investigating whether crude oil shipments are being misclassified. The investigation includes spot inspections and sampling crude oil shipments to determine the ingredients and nature of the oil. “Shippers and rail carriers found to be out of compliance with hazardous materials regulations could be fined or placed out of service,” the statement from the Federal Railroad Administration and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration said.
Is there an ape for that? Orangutans plan trips By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer WASHINGTON — It’s the ape equivalent of Google Maps and Facebook. The night before a big trip, Arno the orangutan plots his journey and lets others know where he is going with a long, whooping call. What he and his orangutan buddies do in the forests of Sumatra tells scientists that advance trip planning and social networking aren’t just human traits, A new study of 15 wild male orangutans finds that they routinely plot out their next day treks and share

their plans in long calls, so females can come by or track them, and competitive males can steer clear. The researchers closely followed the males as they traveled on 320 days during the 1990s. The results were published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One. Typically, an orangutan would turn and face in the direction of his route and let out a whoop, sometimes for as long as four minutes. Then he’d go to sleep and 12 hours later set on the heralded path, said study author Carel van Schaik, director of the Anthropological Institute at the University of Zurich.
“This guy basically thinks ahead,” van Schaik said. “They’re continuously updating their Google Maps so to speak. Based on that, they’re planning what to do next.” The apes didn’t just call once, but they keep at it, calling more than 1,100 times over the 320 days. “This shows they are very much like us in this respect,” van Schaik said. “Our earliest hominid ancestor must have done the same thing.” Scientists had seen such planning in zoos and controlled experiments, but this study provides solid evidence of travel planning in the wild, said Frans de Waal of Atlanta’s Emory Uni-
versity, who was not part of the study. Van Schaik said he and colleagues happened upon the trip calls by accident nearly 20 years ago, first with the dominant male Arno, who they followed more than the other 14 males. They waited to publish the results because he thought few people would believe orangutans could do such planning. But in recent years, the lab and captivity studies have all shown such planning. Based on previous studies and monitoring, van Schaik figured the male lets the world know his plans so females can come to him or stay close.

Priest gives used car to the pope VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis now has his own mini popemobile after getting a good deal on a used car that he plans to drive himself. Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Ciro Benedettini, said Francis accepted the 1984 Renault 4, donated for free by a priest in northern Italy who used it to visit poor parishioners. The four-door car, in papal white, is manual shift and has a new engine. Benedettini told The AP on Wednesday: ‘’The pope intends to drive it.” The donor, the 69-year-old Rev. Renzo Zocca, said he took Francis for a short drive in the car at the Vatican on Saturday and that Francis told him he knows how to drive it. Zocca said he thinks Francis will use it for short commutes on Vatican grounds.
Afghans summon envoy over remark KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan President Hamid Karzai summoned Washington’s ambassador in Kabul to protest a fellow American diplomat’s remarks that Afghanistan is experiencing a civil war, the U.S. Embassy confirmed Wednesday. The comments by James Dobbins, the U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, struck a nerve among Afghan leaders because they are trying to ease growing fears about what will happen once U.S.-led foreign troops complete their withdrawal from this country next year. Already, as foreign troops have reduced their presence, Taliban militants have stepped up attacks, and some fear that the years after the 2014 withdrawal could see a return to the bloody civil war of the early 1990s, when ethnic-based factions fought one another for control of the country. The Afghan Taliban are dominated by ethnic Pashtuns, who have long had a rivalry with Tajiks and other ethnic groups in Afghanistan. In a recent interview with Voice of America’s Deewa news service, Dobbins said, “there already is, of course, a civil war in Afghanistan.” That has drawn rebukes from Karzai spokesman Aimal Faizi, who argued that if Dobbins’ assertion was true, then the U.S. was an actor in a civil war instead of fighting terrorism.
Concordia to be upright next week ROME (AP) — Italian authorities say the operation to set the Concordia cruise ship upright is set for next week, 20 months after the ship capsized near a tiny Tuscan island, killing 32 people. National Civil Protection agency chief Franco Gabrielli told islanders on Giglio island Wednesday that crews could try to right the ship as soon as Monday. He stressed that the exact date for the operation will only be known the day before, since the final OK depends upon weather and sea conditions. The ship will eventually be towed away and scrapped. The Concordia’s hull was gashed by a reef it struck when sailing close to Giglio’s rocky shores Jan. 13, 2012. It rapidly took on water and capsized. Its captain is being tried for manslaughter and abandoning ship.
Institute: Reactor likely restarting WASHINGTON (AP) — A recent satellite image appears to show North Korea is restarting a plutonium reactor, in a move that could raise renewed international alarm over its nuclear weapons program, a U.S. research institute said. The 5 megawatt reactor at the Nyongbyon nuclear facility was shuttered in 2007 under the terms of a disarmament agreement. Pyongyang announced plans in April to restart it amid a litany of threats toward the U.S. and South Korea after it faced tougher international censure over its latest nuclear and rocket tests. North Korea has toned down its rhetoric and stepped up diplomacy with rival South Korea, but Wednesday’s finding by the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies is a sign the regime of Kim Jong Un is pressing ahead with its nuclear program.

Bomb hits Libya’s Benghazi By ESAM MOHAMED and MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press TRIPOLI, Libya — A car bomb tore through a Libyan Foreign Ministry building in the eastern city of Benghazi on Wednesday, a powerful reminder of lawlessness in the North African nation on the anniversary of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate there as well as the 2001 terror attacks in the United States. Prime Minister Ali Zidan issued a stern warning to militias blamed for much of the violence that has plagued Libya since the ov e r t h r ow o f d i c t a t o r Moammar Gadhafi two years ago, proclaiming that “we will not bow to anyone.” But the challenges are mounting. The prime minister said that armed men had just stormed a post office in the capital, Tripoli, taking employees hostage. A witness at the scene, speaking on condition of anonymity because of security concerns, told The Associated Press that the attackers were seeking to cut off mail to the southern city of Sabha in retaliation for a rival tribe from Sabha cut-

ting off the water supply to Tripoli for a week, forcing hospitals and homes to rely on wells and large tanks. Other groups have shut down oil fields to protest corruption or demand regional autonomy, causing the country to lose out on millions of dollars a day in potential revenue. The Benghazi blast caused no deaths or serious injuries, but destroyed the Foreign Ministry branch building in an attack rich in symbolism. The building once housed the U.S. Consulate under the rule of King
Idris, who was overthrown in 1969 in a bloodless coup led by Gadhafi. The bombing took place about 6 a.m., well before anybody was due to arrive at the Foreign Ministry for work and at a time when the nearby streets were nearly empty. The explosion blew out a side wall of the building, leaving desks, filing cabinets and computers strewn across the concrete rubble. It also damaged the Benghazi branch of the Libyan Central Bank. Pictures circulated on Facebook showed men car-
rying dead doves, with one person commenting that “the dog who did this will be punished for the guilt of killing doves.” Another photo shows black smoke smoldering out of the charred Foreign Ministry building, along with wrecked cars and burned palm trees. A green tarp was later placed over part of the building. The blast also rocked Benghazi’s main boulevard, Gamal Abdel-Nasser, which runs through the city from north to south. Several pedestrians were slightly wounded.
Shiite mosque is hit by blasts in Iraq BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide attacker staged a double bombing near a Shiite mosque in northern Baghdad as worshippers were leaving after evening prayers on Wednesday, killing at least 35 in the latest deadly episode of violence
to rock the country, according to Iraqi authorities. The blasts follow months of heightened sectarian violence in Iraq, intensifying fears the country is slipping back toward the widespread bloodshed in the years that followed
the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. The past several months have been the deadliest since 2008, when Iraq was pulling back from the brink of sectar ian civil war. Wednesday’s explosions went off as the heat of the day was easing after sunset
and worshippers and shoppers filled the streets. A suicide bomber made his way to the gate of the mosque and then blew himself up. Shortly afterward, a car he apparently arrived in exploded nearby, police said.

Manure stops play time A southwestern Pennsylvania borough has indefinitely closed a playground because of lingering contamination from a chicken manure spill last month. The Meyersdale borough council voted Tuesday night to close the Paul E. Fuller playground. The manure spilled on a hill above the playground Aug. 23, and water flows onto the playground when it rains, apparently carrying bacteria from the manure. Borough workers treated the area with lime, but say bacteria counts including salmonella haven’t decreased. Councilman Roger Miller said his own unscientific methods have confirmed those findings: “My nose tells me there’s a problem out there.” Miller asked a borough worker about the results of recent bacteria tests and said he was told, “You don’t want to know.” ■ Springfield, Mass.
Mass. church ransacked A longtime member of a Massachusetts church says thieves have ransacked the house of worship, taking “everything but the pews.” Bernadine Smith said the thieves entered the Holy Temple Church of God in Christ in Springfield sometime last week and snatched an organ, communion dishes, the PA system, microphone stands, furniture, silverware and other items. She estimates the losses at $150,000. Police Sgt. John Delaney said somebody used a key to enter the church between Aug. 20 and Aug. 22. The 80-year-old congregation has been at its present Bay Street location since 1965. Smith said the church has insurance, but those documents may have also been stolen. She said everything is gone except for “the pews and a couple chairs out of the pulpit.” ■ San Francisco
Bridge gets troll for luck A final piece of safety hardware — a bearded, spindly legged troll — has been installed in the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The troll is meant to be a protector and good luck charm, modeled after a similar statue placed surreptitiously by a steelworker on the old span after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The new statue forged by an unknown artist was installed at an undisclosed location, Bay Area Toll Authority spokesman John Goodwin said. The original troll was removed from its perch on Labor Day in preparation for the demolition of the old bridge and will likely be housed in a museum or park, but plans were still being finalized. The new, $6.4 billion portion of the Bay Bridge opened to traffic on Labor Day, nearly 24 years after the Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the old span. Construction was years behind schedule and billions of dollars over budget amid political fights over its design and engineering challenges. From wire reports

People and personalities Winehouse tribute in London home LONDON (AP) — Amy Winehouse lived and died in north London’s Camden neighborhood — and in the month that she would have turned 30, her presence is still being celebrated. The beehived diva’s spraypainted image adorns several Camden walls, and fans still flock to the area more than two years after her 2011 death from accidental alcohol poisoning at age 27. Winehouse got her start amid the pubs and clubs of Camden, so local businesses are holding a series of events this month to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up by the singer’s family. An exhibition opening today at the Proud art gallery includes photographs of the singer — many taken in Camden — along with paintings, sketches, graffiti art and the street sign from the square where she died at home, which is covered with tributes from fans. “Camden meant everything to Amy, and Camden recognizes that,” the singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse said Wednesday at a preview of the show. Other events for the charity, which helps young people nurture their love of music and steer clear of drugs, are a popup shop selling Winehousethemed merchandise, an Amy Winehouse walking tour, benefit gigs and a charity skydive by the singer’s mother, Janis. A bronze statue of the singer is soon to be erected at the Roundhouse concert hall, where she gave her final public performance. Camden has been home to bands from Madness to Blur, and to rock stars including Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Noel Gallagher of Oasis. Camden Mayor Jonathan Simpson said the area, which has dozens of music venues, is “the rock ‘n’ roll capital of the U.K., if not the world.” “Amy is so synonymous with Camden,” he said. “There’s a real sense of pride in her legacy locally. “ Yet if Camden was the making of Winehouse, it also was the scene of her undoing.

TRIBUTE TO WINEHOUSE: Janice and Mitch Winehouse mother and father of the late British singer Amy pose for the media, in front of portraits of their daughter at the Proud gallery in Camden, London, on Wednesday. Alongside a lively nightlife, the area has a reputation as a place to buy and consume drugs. Winehouse, who overcame a drug problem before she died but failed to conquer alcohol, was a well-known customer of several local bars. Many of the photos in the exhibition appear poignant now — particularly a series from 2004 showing a healthy-looking Winehouse far removed from the gaunt, heavily tattooed figure of later years. “People say, well, Camden is a troubled place, it was trouble for Amy,” said Mitch Winehouse. “It wasn’t Camden. It was circumstances that surrounded Amy. “It’s a place of love. She loved it.”

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry says he loves being an uncle, telling children at an awards ceremony that he’d just witnessed the baby who may one day be king crack a smile. Harry, who was pushed back to fourth-in-line to the British throne following the birth of his brother’s son, Prince George, said Wednesday he’d just visited the 1½-monthold royal, who was taking a bath. Harry told 9-year-old Nikki Harry: Uncle Christou that it was the “first time I’ve seen him smile.” The prince seems to have warmed to his new family role, telling Mary Kirk, the mother of another child, that being an uncle was “fantastic.” The ceremony was hosted by the WellChild charity, which is dedicated to the needs of sick children and their families.
Dead songstress returns for show TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Pop diva Teresa Teng may not exactly have come back from the dead to perform in a widely hyped concert in her native Taiwan, but a computer-generated likeness of the legendary singer sure left that impression among many of the 15,000 fans packing a Taipei arena. Teng “appeared” onstage Friday night with local crooner and movie actor Jay Chou to perform three duets that enraptured the crowd. Her virtual presence was the result of a detailed recreation of Teng’s mannerisms and expressions, painstakingly put together by Digital Domain 3.0, a California company specializing in digital imagery for the entertainment industry.

Betty loved to bake and entertain, was a wonderful hostess, often inviting friends and relatives for a delicious meal and lively debate. She loved a good conversation and was well versed in a wide array of topics, including politics and religion. She was the designated neighborhood Mom, and was like a Betty Crocker and Ann Landers rolled into one. She was very talented with creating crafts and doing home projects. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church since 1946 and was active in Dorcas Circle, Trinity Auxiliary and the Eagles. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed by all. She is survived by her husband, Mel; her daughter, Judy (Gary) Olson, Maple Grove, Minn.; her son, Joe (Bonnie) Newman, Bismarck; her grandchildren, Stephanie Olson, Plymouth, Minn., Pam (Mike) Hillis, Cordova, Tenn., Kerry (Billy) Ericksen, Mandan, and Tim (Jen) Newman, Bismarck; and four lovely great-granddaughters, Kiarra Folstrom, Cordova, Tenn., Bri Lyn Folstrom, Williston, and Greta and Evy Newman, Bismarck. She is also survived by a sister, Zola Mae Berg, Kenmare; a sister-in-law, Leona Knower, Lakeville, Minn.; a brother-in-law, Maurice Swanson, Williston; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Lloyd and Charlie; and two sisters, Arlene Swanson and Lila Vandemark.

Longtime Ala. lawmaker, civil rights leader dies MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Demetrius Newton, a civil rights attorney who represented icons like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. before becoming the first black person to serve as speaker pro tem of the Alabama House, has died. He was 85. Rep. John Rogers of Birmingham, a longtime friend of Newton, said he was notified by the lawmaker’s family that Newton died Wednesday morning after a long illness. Gov. Robert Bentley served for eight years with Newton in the Alabama House. “He was a fine gentleman, and we had a strong mutual respect for each other. He will be greatly missed, not only by his own constituents — but also by the entire state of Alabama,” Bentley, a Republican, said. Newton was former city attorney for Birmingham and had served in the Legislature since 1986. He was speaker pro tem from 1998 until 2010. He was a polite man who often had a kind word for legislators and lobbyists when he passed them in the Statehouse hallways.
Giant boulder hits man By FELICIA FONSECA Associated Press FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — An Arizona man was seriously hurt when a car-size boulder slid onto a mountain road and landed on him while he and his co-workers were trying to move another massive rock off the road. The 27-year-old Phoenix man was hospitalized with injuries to his legs and pelvis after being hit Tuesday by the 30-ton boulder, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities said he was in critical but stable condition. The man and four others were trying to get to the top of Mount Elden near Flagstaff to work on a radio tower when a large boulder blocked their path. The group tried to move it when another boulder that a fire official described as being “as big as a Volkswagen” slid down the mountain slope and hit the man. The workers called for help but were able to remove him from underneath the boulder before responders arrived. “I’m not exactly sure how they did it,” Summit Fire Department Capt. Brian Parker said. “Just the fact they were able to get it off him was impressive, and it made our job a whole lot easier. Anytime there’s any kind of crushing injuries like that where they’re trapped, the sooner the better to get them out.” A photo of the scene showed a strap around one of the boulders, but Parker said he didn’t know if the group used that, their truck or their bare hands in trying to move the first boulder that was blocking the road or the one that later fell on the man. Thunderstorms washed out parts of the road, preventing anything but fourwheel drive vehicles from accessing the site. The man ultimately was transported down the mountain in one of the sheriff’s office vehicles. Parker said the man was alert the entire time, answering questions and talking to responders on the scene. “He was obviously scared and in pain,” Parker said. Coconino National Forest s p o k e s w o m a n Br i e n n e Magee said crews will assess the road once the rain eases and eventually will move the boulders.
AFL-CIO steps up criticism of federal health care law WASHINGTON (AP) — The AFL-CIO on Wednesday approved a resolution critical of parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law in spite of efforts by White House officials to discourage the labor federation from making its concerns so prominent. The strongly worded resolution says the Affordable Care Act will drive up the costs of union-sponsored health plans to the point that workers and employers are forced to abandon them. Labor unions still support the law’s overall goals of reducing health costs and bringing coverage to all Americans, the resolution says, but adds that the law is being implemented in a way that is “highly disruptive” to union health care plans. Some individual unions have complained about the law’s impact for months. The resolution marks the first time the nation’s largest labor federation has gone on record embracing that view. Unions were among the most enthusiastic backers of the law when it passed in 2010. A labor official told The Associated Press that White House officials had been calling labor leaders for days to urge them not to voice their concerns in the form of a resolution.

Put teeth into anti-corruption Casper Star-Tribune A Chicago-based investigative journalism nonprofit organization has told many of us what we already knew: Wyoming’s government transparency and accountability laws need tightening. According to the Better Government Association report, Wyoming lawmakers need to do more to refine laws that enable regular citizens to fight corruption. We know what you’re thinking: Here goes the crusading media again, calling for greater openness in state and local government. Before you turn the page or click on another story link because the issue doesn’t relate to your everyday life, consider just a few of the similar stories reported on by the Star-Tribune in the past couple of years: Few audit controls on local municipalities. No lobbyist oversight. Emails from lawmakers that are off-limits. A loose conflictof-interest provision. Questionable practices when it comes to transparency, especially about government officials and personnel matters. Courtrooms that are routinely and questionably closed. In April, Star-Tribune reporter Laura Hancock wrote about the fact that La Barge Mayor Larry Stepp unknowingly broke state law by receiving free water and sewer service. Stepp only realized the infraction when the state audited the town of La Barge — at the mayor’s request. It seems we have taken this Code of the West business-with-a-handshake myth a bit too far when it comes to government accountability. It’s great if you’re in private business and that’s the risk you’re willing to take. That’s a recipe for everything from abuse of privilege to nepotism and cronyism to misappropriation of funds. Far too often, state lawmakers encounter unprecedented issues, pass legislation, then proclaim: “Problem solved.”

Expand community treatment Dealing with North Dakota’s drinking problem — and it is a drinking problem — will take an array of strategies, from enforcement and education to training and treatment. There’s no one solution. No single answer. While substantial effort has been put into enforcement, training and education, treatment also needs to be supported. The Heartview Foundation has begun a $1 million capital campaign to help finance expanding residential care, outpatient care and community education services. The downtown Bismarck-based substance abuse treatment center intends to purchase the building at 121 E. Broadway, next to the existing Heartview facility.
The expansion will allow Heartview to increase its patient load by 50 percent. Right now, the demand for treatment is higher than the substance abuse center can accommodate. “We have waiting lists, and that’s unacceptable. You lose intervention power the longer people have to wait and, in the interim, the crisis spills over into such problems as domestic violence, crime and loss of work,” according to Kurt Snyder, Heartview’s executive director. The numbers are not pretty: ■ Young adults in the state (ages 18-25) rank second in the nation for past month binge alcohol use. ■ The state has the third-high-
est rate of binge drinking and the highest number of barsper-capita in the nation. ■ The average Heartview patient has gotten younger, with more than 70 percent 36 years of age or younger. Problem drinking has been well established in North Dakota. That’s not an issue. The question is what to do about it. Increasing the treatment capacity is one thing that should be done to handle the growing numbers of patients. The Heartview Foundation has a long history in the Bismarck-Mandan community. It is the oldest nonprofit, private substance abuse treatment provider in the state. It’s a

known quantity and has adapted to changing community needs over the years. The choice of drugs for Heartview patients has changed from alcohol and marijuana to alcohol and prescription drugs. The expansion proposed by Heartview, into an adjacent building, is a practical solution to meeting the increasing demand for services. Heartview is asking for help. It’s establishing a “Pathway to Recovery” to acknowledge contributions to the capital campaign. The Bismarck-Mandan community created Heartview to meet a dire need in 1964. That changing need continues, and the resources needed to meet it need to change as well. The expansion of the present facility makes sense. Do what you can to help.
VOICES OF THE PEOPLE Courts committed to N.D. veterans By JUSTICE DANIEL CROTHERS Bismarck Thank you to the Tribune editorial staff for raising the idea of a separate veterans court. The Tribune correctly notes that no specialized veterans court exists in North Dakota. But that is not for lack of interest or inquiry. I chair the North Dakota Supreme Court’s Court Administration Services Committee, which studied this issue in 2010 and issued a report in 2011. The committee and several multidisciplinary ad hoc members consulted with the National Guard, the Department of Veterans Affairs and many, many others. North Dakota district courts disposed of 39,847 criminal cases in 2010, 41,820 cases in 2011 and 45,175 cases in 2012. Few of those criminal cases could be identified as involving service-related trauma as an underlying factor. Therefore, the committee ultimately concluded it was not feasible to establish specialized veterans courts in North Dakota — because of the relatively low number of criminal
cases involving servicerelated factors and because the instances were geographically dispersed across the state. Instead of a separate veterans court, the North Dakota judicial system has undertaken a process of educating judges on how to recognize those issues and the types of court procedures and outside services available to address them. We have coordinated our judicial education with the North Dakota Commission on Legal Counsel for Indigents, whose members are
called on to represent many defendants in criminal cases. We also have had communications with the State’s Attorneys’ Association, with a goal that every part of the criminal justice system is better prepared to deal with these issues. The court system is committed to meeting the needs of veterans in a fair and compassionate manner and continues to monitor ideas for alternative court processes as the need arises. (Justice Daniel Crothers is a member of the North Dakota Supreme Court.)
How much do we have to sacrifice? By LAURIE SOLBERG Belfield The presenters (Stu Stiles and Jim Hereford) of the rail facility 3 miles east of Belfield stand to benefit greatly from the project. Ask yourself how this will benefit the entire community of Belfield and the surrounding residents. I would not say the added traffic and the stress of worrying about our students
and athletes and our elderly who use state Highway 10 on a daily basis will be beneficial. With all the extra traffic, more of our county tax dollars will be used for road repair. Nor will Belfield benefit with the added housing Epropp is already talking with Meyer Real Estate about. Where will they go? Chances are, not to Belfield. Maybe they should build on-site housing since there are no contaminants and the tress will supposedly mask the noise and beautify. The info that was not offered: Another 686 acres just a little farther east will also go before the zoning board in September, presented by South Heart Rail Terminal with the landowner being Great Northern Properties. That brings the total acreage that has been requested to be rezoned since June 2013 to over 1,200 acres; that is equal to approximately 935 football fields. Why the need for two rail facilities in such close proximity? How much more agriculture acreage do we sacrifice? My family, the Buckmans and many others have lived here all our lives. We have no intention of giving up our way of life and will not be pushed out.
A question of trust and an echo of Iraq By MAUREEN DOWD WASHINGTON — Vladimir Putin, who keeps Edward Snowden on a leash and lets members of a riotous girl band rot in jail, has thrown President Barack Obama a lifeline. The Russian president had coldly brushed back Obama on Snowden and Syria, and only last week called John Kerry a liar. Now, when it is clear Obama can’t conDowd vince Congress, the American public, his own wife, the world, Liz Cheney or even Donald “Shock and Awe” Rumsfeld to bomb Syria — just a teensy-weensy bit — PootyPoot (as W. called him) rides, shirtless, to the rescue, offering him a facesaving way out? If it were a movie, we’d know it was a trick. We can’t trust the soulless Putin — his Botox has given the former KGB. officer even more of a poker face — or the heartless Bashar al-Assad. By Tuesday, Putin the Peacemaker was already setting conditions. Just as Obama and Kerry
— with assists from Hillary and some senators — were huffing and puffing that it was their military threat that led to the breakthrough, Putin moved to neuter them, saying they’d have to drop their military threat before any deal could proceed. The administration’s saber-rattling felt more like knees rattling. Oh, for the good old days when Obama was leading from behind. Now these guys are leading by slip-ofthe-tongue. Amateur hour started when Obama dithered on Syria and failed to explain the stakes there. It escalated last August with a slip by the methodical wordsmith about “a red line for us” — which the president and Kerry later tried to blur as the world’s red line, except the world was averting its eyes. Obama’s flip-flopping, ambivalent leadership led him to the exact place he never wanted to be: unilateral instead of unified. Once again, as with gun control and other issues, he had not done the groundwork necessary to line up support. The bumbling approach cli-
maxed with two off-the-cuff remarks by Kerry, hitting a rough patch in the role of a lifetime, during a London press conference Monday; he offered to forgo an attack if Assad turned over “every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community” and promised, if they did strike, that it would be an “unbelievably small” effort. A State Department spokeswoman walked back Kerry’s first slip, but once the White House realized it was the only emergency exit sign around, Kerry walked back the walking back, claiming at a congressional hearing Tuesday that he did not “misspeak.” The president countered Kerry’s second slip with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie Monday night, declaring that “The U.S. does not do pinpricks,” which Kerry parroted at the hearing Tuesday, declaring that “We don’t do pinpricks.” For good measure, Obama, in his address to the nation Tuesday night, made sure the world knew: “The United States military doesn’t do pinpricks.” Where the mindlessly certain W. adopted a fig leaf
The latest saber-rattling felt more like knees rattling
of diplomacy to use force in Iraq, the mindfully uncertain Obama is adopting a fig leaf of force to use diplomacy in Syria. Even as Democrats tiptoed away from the red line, eager to kick the can of Sarin down the road, their own harsh rhetoric haunted them. Kerry compared Assad to Hitler last week, and Harry Reid evoked ”Nazi death camps” on the Senate floor Monday. Again, an echo of the misbegotten Iraq. Making his hyperbolic case for war, W. was huffy with Germans on a visit in 2002, irritated that they did not seem to grasp the horror of “a dictator who gassed his own people,” as he put it to a Berlin reporter. Obama cried over the children of Newtown. He is stricken, as he said in his address Tuesday, by “images of children writhing in pain and going still on a cold hospital floor” from “poison gas.” He thought — or thought he thought — that avenging the gassing was the right thing to do. But W., once more haunting his successor’s presidency, drained credibility, coffers and compassion. While most Americans shudder at the news that 400 children have been killed by a monster, they
recoil at the Middle East now; they’ve had it with Shiites vs. Sunnis, with Alawites and all the ancient hatreds. Kerry can bluster that “we’re not waiting for long” for Assad to cough up the weapons, but it will be hard for him to back it up, given that a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll indicates that Joe Sixpack is now a peacenik; in 2005, 60 percent of Republicans agreed with W. that America should foster democracy in the world; now only 19 percent of Republicans believe it. W., Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld launched a social engineering scheme to change the mind-set in the Middle East about democracy and the mind-set at home about the post-Vietnam reluctance to be muscular about imposing our values through war. They did manage to drastically change the mind-set in the Middle East and at home, but in the opposite way than they intended. In a crouch after 9/11, the country was happy to punish an Arab villain, even the wrong one. That mass delusion, plus the economic vertigo, has sent Americans into a permanent crouch. And that’s too bad. (Maureen Dowd writes a syndicated column for the New York Times.)

$485M wheat deal with Taiwan By JAMES MacPHERSON Associated Press Taiwan has agreed to buy $484.5 million worth of U.S. wheat over the next two years, much of it from North Dakota, officials said Wednesday. Gov. Jack Dalrymple and Taiwanese milling industry officials signed the agreement Wednesday afternoon at the North Dakota Capitol in Bismarck. U.S. Sen. John Hoeven said North Dakota, Montana and Idaho will provide the bulk of the 62.5 million bushels to Taiwan.
Jim Peterson, marketing director for the North Dakota Wheat Commission, said Taiwan is the six-largest importer of U.S. wheat, purchasing an average of more than 30 million bushels annually, including 18 million bushels of hard spring wheat, North Dakota’s staple crop that’s used in making bread or blended with other wheat types for noodles. North Dakota accounts for about half of the nation’s spring wheat crop, and the two-year deal announced Wednesday with the Taiwanese is worth about $200 milContinued on 6B

Races/walks The Mandan Fire Department will host a 10K and 5K run and a 5K walk Oct. 5 at the Raging Rivers Water Park at 2600 46th Ave. S.E. The 5K and 10K race starts at 9 a.m. and the 5K walk starts at 9:30 a.m. Money raised at the event will be used to help purchase a thermal imaging camera to allow firefighters to see through smoke and rescue victims during a fire, who might otherwise be difficult to find. Funds raised last year were used to buy carbon monoxide and smoke detectors for the elderly and low-income families. For more information, contact Capt. Mike Hanson at 701-400-4313. Participants may register online at www.racemine.com/Through-The-SmokeRace/events/2013/ThroughThe-Smoke-Race. The fire department also is seeking donated prizes for the event.
Youth Commission The Mandan City Commission is seeking applications from young people who reside in the city for six open positions on the Mandan Youth Commission. The City will accept applications through Friday. The Youth Commission will be comprised of 11 representatives from the middle school level (sixth through eighth grades), high school level (grades nine to 12) and high school graduates ages 18 to 20. Youth Commission members make decisions and provide recommendations to the City Commission on projects that provide educational and community enhancements. It allows youth to be actively engaged in decisions of the community. Participants have opportunities to develop leadership skills, to involve other young people in community projects, and to voice the needs and concerns of young people to elected city leaders. Applications are available at http://www.cityofmandan.com and through the Mandan Middle School and Mandan High School principal’s offices.
Water billing Keith Demke, utility operations director for Bismarck, said the city will switch its water billing system through a new software program late this month and early October. Demke said it will. “That system will give us much better access to information and much better ability to manage our accounts and better service for our customers,” Demke said. “It will allow us to replace our (old) water meter reading system.” He said utility bills will look similar to existing statements, but may be sent at different dates than before because of a different billing cycle.

Balance discussed at summit By NICK SMITH Bismarck Tribune State and federal agencies need to have an up-front plan in how to allow energy development, wildlife habitats and public lands to coexist. That was the primary message by speakers holding a discussion Wednesday afternoon during the western media summit in Bismarck. This week’s summit is sponsored by the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and is being hosted by Ducks Unlimited. Ed Arnett, director of the TRCP’s Center for Responsible Energy Development, said getting wildlife and industry interests to coexist with minimal impacts isn’t exactly rocket science. “The reality is it’s a pretty simple zoning concept,” Arnett said. “But it’s difficult to get there.” He said political and industry interests make it difficult to create
solutions that benefit industry while minimizing and protecting surface interests as much as possible. Arnett challenged the more than 30 in attendance to look at the strategic energy plan for any individual state, or the federal government, and find evidence of any coherent path forward. “There is no strategic plan,” Arnett said. Mike McEnroe, legislative liaison for the Wildlife Society’s North Dakota Chapter, agreed. McEnroe said the benefits the state of North Dakota is receiving from the current oil boom that’s made the state number two nationally in oil production is “going to come at the expense of natural resources.” McEnroe went through a slide show of oil patch tours the organization has conducted in the past couple of years. He showed examples such as oil well sites flooding during spring
2011 flooding outside Williston and an oil spill near Ray the same year. “They (the state) are completely dwarfed by the social impacts,” McEnroe said. He pointed to the billions the state has spent in the past two legislative sessions to rebuild roads, expand infrastructure and assist political subdivisions due to energy impacts. Arnett said there needs to be better coordination between states and federal agencies. He added that the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management already has rules that call for such communication. Arnett said if these rules were more actively enforced, some of the issues he’d mentioned concerning different interests could be better addressed in the future.

Strasburg voters came very close in a special election Tuesday to approving a $2.9 million project to replace an original gymnasium and lunchroom area, but not close enough. With just 18 votes less than needed for a super majority, school Superintendent Mary Larson said there’s reason to think voters might say “Yes” if asked again with some adjustments to the overall plan. Voters were asked two questions Tuesday. On the first — whether they’d support spending nearly $3 million to replace a 1935 building that serves as a gym, dining, kitchen, weight and music area — voters were in favor by a margin of 222 to 178. However, the question needed a super majority of 60 percent, or 240 in favor, so it didn’t pass. Voters did approve a second question, which is to raise the school’s debt limit by 5 percent to help finance the construction. The vote was 202 in favor and 192 opposed. Only a simple majority was required. Larson said having a higher debt limit approved by voters is helpful going forward, since the question doesn’t have to be asked again. She said a committee will meet to evaluate community feedback and help decide if there’s hope for a positive vote outcome by making some changes. She said state law says the district has to wait at least three months to call for the question and can only do so twice in any given year. “We have one more shot at this particular project for the year. I am disappointed. It was a good plan, but maybe it wasn’t communicated well, or it was misunderstood. We need to go back to the committee and find out what we missed,” Larson said. In the meantime, the old gym area will need some work, she said.
Joplin chief speaks at safety conference By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune Mitch Randles, the fire chief for Joplin, Mo, told North Dakota emergency managers about his experiences responding to the tornado that killed 161 people in his town. Randles was a featured speaker Wednesday for the North Dakota Emergency Management Association Conference where about 100 local and state emergency manager officials are gathered this week in Bismarck. The conference, cosponsored by the state Emergency Management Office, also featured presentations on cyber security, state program and the Minot flood recovery. It continues through Thursday at the Ramada. “What I want to do is have people learn from our experiences — both good and bad. We did several things that were good, that were beneficial and in the recovery also
some things we learned were wrong,” he said. Randles showed graphic pictures from the E5 tornado that killed 161 people in May 2011. The tornado also destroyed 7,500 homes and 500 businesses. Two Joplin fire halls were destroyed. Within a short time, emergency officials — along with more than 60 dog teams and volunteers from all over the United States — from six states searched for injured in the debris. “We used our state emergency management to start requesting those resources to come. ... I needed specialty resources to deal with it,” he said. The searches were divided into six zones for the city of 50,000. “We got everybody in six days,” Randles said. Teamwork has been important in Joplin’s recovery. “Overall from the city standContinued on 6B

USS North Dakota commissioned The USS North Dakota goes into service May 31. The Secretary of the Navy says the commissioning ceremony will be that day for the $2.6 billion nuclear-powered submarine. It will be the first time in almost 100 years that a military vessel has carried the name of North Dakota. Boat sponsor Katie Fowler will officially “bring the boat to life” when she gives the command to “man the ship” toward the end of the ceremony. She’ll christen the North Dakota on Nov. 2 in Groton, Conn., which marks the end of the shipbuilding process and officially launches the boat and formalizes its name. The attack submarine will have 120 sailors and 15 officers. It’s designed to launch missiles, carry commando teams and perform reconnaissance missions. —Associate d Press

Whalen resigns after 18 months Pat Whalen has resigned from the Burleigh County Planning and Zoning Commission after serving only 18 months. He submitted a letter of resignation Wednesday to county Auditor Kevin Glatt to submit to the planning commission. Whalen announced his intention to resign during the Sept. 4 Burleigh County Commission meeting when county commissioners reversed an earlier decision and allowed developer Dale Pahlke to rezone 310 acres of agriculture property into industrial use. Whalen held up a sign at the meeting asking county commissioners “Who do you serve?” “This commission has made some controversial and disturbing decisions during 2013, and my perception is that hidden agendas and conflicts of interest are a serious problem,” Whalen wrote in his letter. “Some of you have repeatedly stated publicly that you are opposed to the planning and zoning process. If this is true, why are you on the commission? ... If you are determined to ignore the interests of the residents of Burleigh County and support special interests and individuals, then perhaps you should consider stepping down.” — LeAnn Eckroth
45-megawat natural gas plant open The first of three 45-megawatt natural gas-fired power plants is operational near Williston. The unit 15 miles northwest of Williston is owned and operated by Basin Electric Power Cooperative, the company said in a release. The site will be known as Pioneer Station. Construction of the $64.5-million unit began summer 2012. The unit is part of a power generation plan that includes two more units at Pioneer Station, three units west of Watford City, and a transmission line. Basin Electric will use the unit to produce electricity for Mountrail-Williams Electric. Staff has been hired to operate the unit. The plant will operate as needed rather than all the time. The technology used to fire up the unit will allow it to be started quickly. In late November, Unit 1 at the Lonesome Creek Station, about 13 miles west of Watford City should also be operational. Basin also has submitted permits for two additional units at Lonesome Creek.
Police investigate Bismarck thefts A woman was arrested Tuesday for shoplifting more than $1,300 in electronics from Best Buy. A Best Buy employee reported to Bismarck police officers that the 23-year-old woman entered the bathroom where she stayed for several minutes before exiting and leaving the store without paying, Officer Pat Renz said. The employee found an empty Sony digital camera box in the restroom trashcan. The camera is worth $899. She was accompanied by a 31-year-old man who fled the scene on foot and was chased down by one of the officers, Renz said. He was arrested on outstanding warrants. The store has surveillance video of the woman stealing another camera, worth $449, on Aug. 31. Both could face charges. In an unrelated incident, police are also looking into the theft of a backpack from a car parked on the 1300 block of Apache St., Renz said. The car’s owner had parked it in the driveway of a friend’s house, unlocked, Renz said. The theft happened between midnight and 3 a.m. Wednesday. The backpack was full of textbooks, valued at $400. There are no suspects at this time. — Hannah Johnson

Hodge buyers given permits By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune Two buyers of flooded Hoge Island structures have been given permits to place the buildings on three parcels of property. The Burleigh County Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday approved Stacy Tschider’s request for a special permit to move a home from 9700 Island Road, on the north side of Hoge Island, to a permanent foundation on
south Hoge Island. The home would be moved to 1.9 acres of property at 8700 Burke Creek Island Road. Tschider’s new foundation is set 2 feet higher than the area flood plain, as county code requires. Clint Feland was granted a special permit to move a structure from 9750 Island Road to a permanent foundation on a 1.5 acres of platted property that he owns on west side of the Double Ditch Loop area. A second special use per-
mit was approved for Feland to move a structure from 9828 Island Road on Hoge Island to 6.8 acres of unplatted property near the other Double Ditch property, but he may only to place the structure on blocks for the short-term. Feland must first be approved a plat to specify how he will use the property. He can then move structure from the blocks to the permanent foundation if he obtains a building permit. The structures being relo-
cated are part of four flooded Hoge Island properties bought out by the Burleigh County Water Resource District for $1.27 million. Structures that could be used again were resold in an auction to Feland and Tschider in July for $57,501. All the Hoge buyout structures purchased must moved off the area by Oct. 15 to allow cleanup work to be completed at the site. (Reach LeAnn Eckroth at 701-250-8264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Jurors see video interview of father FARGO (AP) — The father of two children slain on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation told investigators that he couldn’t explain their deaths because he had been drinking but that he was “not a monster.” The videotaped FBI interview of Travis DuBois Sr. was shown to jurors Tuesday in federal court in Fargo during the trial of Valentino “Tino” Bagola. Bagola, 20, is charged with murder in the May 2011 deaths of 9-year-old Destiny Shaw-DuBois and her 6year-old brother, Travis DuBois Jr. Prosecutors allege that Bagola — who is the nephew of the children’s mother — sexually assaulted the girl and that he stabbed her at least
40 times and her brother at least 60 times. FBI investigators have said Bagola told them he was angry with the elder DuBois but could not find him and instead took out his rage on the children. Authorities allege Bagola’s DNA was found beneath Destiny’s fingernails. Bagola’s defense attorneys contend that the elder DuBois killed the children in the middle of a multi-day drinking binge. DuBois acknowledged during the interview with FBI agents soon after the killings that he had been drinking. “What am I supposed to tell you guys if I don’t remember?” he said. DuBois said he was stunned when
the children’s mother found their bodies. “I was in shock and everything,” he said. At the time of the interview, DuBois was considered a suspect. The FBI agents suggested he killed the children but also told him: “You’re not a monster.” DuBois told the agents, “I’m not trying to hide anything,” but he couldn’t recall what happened. “I’m not a monster,” he said. The Spirit Lake tribe is overhauling its child protection system, which came under fire last year. The federal Bureau of Indian Affairs stepped in in October to bolster and oversee the system.
Almanac predicts a cold winter By RIK STEVENS Associated Press CONCORD — The other jury is in: A second periodical used for everything from predicting the weather to helping people lose weight agrees that this winter’s shaping up to be cold and snowy. The Dublin, N.H.-based Old Farmer’s Almanac which, at 222, is believed to be the oldest continuously published periodical in North America, is predicting that a drop in solar activity and a change in ocean patterns point to colder-than-average temperatures and higher-thanaverage snowfall totals.
The 2014 edition officially comes out Tuesday. Last month, the Mainebased Farmer’s Almanac, said much the same. The younger cousin has been published for a mere 197 years. T h e O l d F a r m e r ’s Almanac predicts a cold winter for every region but the lower Great Lakes, upper Midwest and the northern states of the Northeast. “Sweaters and snow shovels should be unpacked early and kept close by throughout the season,” said Janice Stillman, editor of the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Coming out of winter,
the almanac says the country can expect warmer, drier conditions into spring and that fears of a drought will persist into summer for several areas. There are other morsels of sage advice in the almanac. For example, if you’re trying to grab or rescue a scared pet or wild animal, you’re going to get bitten so try covering it with a blanket or towel. And of course, in keeping with its origins as an aid for farmers, the almanac is packed with growing tips, advice on planting with the moon’s phases and information on animal husbandry.

FARGO (AP) — A judge has reconsidered and rejected an appeal by a Minot commodities broker who says he was suffering from a blood infection and should not have been allowed to represent himself in a wideranging investment fraud case. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson agreed to take a second look at the complaint by Frederick Keiser Jr., who was sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2007 after he was convicted of bilking investors out of millions of dollars. Keiser declined the judge’s offer for a courtappointed lawyer. Keiser was diagnosed with a bacterial infection of the heart lining and valves less than two weeks after a jury found him guilty on all 22 counts. Erickson ruled on the first appeal in 2011 that Keiser could not prove the illness was debilitating or impairing and denied the motion to throw out the sentence. Erickson decided to reconsider to allow Keiser to present new evidence on his claim that the infection altered his ability to function at trial. But the judge said in a ruling released Tuesday that Keiser’s witnesses could not show he “lacked a rational and functional understanding of the proceedings.” Erickson cited his own words after trial when he commended Keiser for how he presented his case during trial, and noted that lawyers “haven’t done that well in cases.” Au t h o r i t i e s s a i d t h e scheme recruited at least 500 investors into bank programs by promising high rates of return with no risk.

Second appeal dismissed by court PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Supreme Court dismissed a Canadian man’s secondary appeal of his murder conviction and life sentence in the 1975 slaying of a fellow American Indian Movement activist. In a direct appeal last year, the Supreme Court upheld John Graham’s conviction for taking part in the killing of Annie Mae Aquash in South Dakota. Graham then filed a secondary appeal that was denied by a circuit judge. Acting as his own lawyer, Graham asked the
Supreme Court to consider the second appeal, but the high court dismissed it for procedural reasons, saying he failed to serve his appeal motion on state officials. Graham was convicted of murder in December 2010 after prosecutors said Graham and two other AIM activists, Arlo Looking Cloud and Theda Clarke, killed Aquash because they suspected she was a government informant. Graham, a member of the Southern Tutchone tribe in Canada’s Yukon Territory, could not contacted in prison for com-
ment Tuesday. South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley said the Supreme Court ruling ended Graham’s challenges to his conviction in state courts. “I am grateful for the cooperative efforts of tribal, state and federal law enforcement officers in bringing John Graham to justice,” Jackley said in a statement. “Today’s ruling is an important step toward final justice for Annie Mae and her family.” A q u a s h’s b o d y w a s found in southwest South Dakota in February 1976.

Family internist gives out meds Dear Annie: My dad’s c o u s i n , “ J o h n ,” i s a n internist from another state. During my younger sister’s wedding weekend, Dr. John stayed with us. Two days before the wedding, my sister was stressed and couldn’t sleep. John offered her Ambien. The pill was blue and in a blister pack. He gave her two, even though the label states you shouldn’t take them unless you can get six hours of sleep. My sister absolutely didn’t have time for that. I have a prescription for Ambien, and it’s white. I have no idea what John gave my sister. At the hairdresser’s the next day, she was totally zoned out. Isn’t it wrong for physicians to dispense such medications without a prescription? There have been several incidents in the past where John has given prescription medications to my family members without seeing them. He once sent my dad expired ointments for a rash that turned out to be shingles. When my mother had pneumonia, he told her to take flu medication. He didn’t examine them, nor did
By PHILLIP ALDER H.E. Martz said, “He who builds a better mousetrap these days runs into material shortages, patentinfringement suits, work stoppages, collusive bidding, discount discrimination — and taxes.” At the bridge table, when your contract appears hopeless, be a man, not a mouse, and see if you can trap an opponent into helping you. South blazes into six hearts despite West’s one-spade overcall. West leads the spade king. After winning with his ace, how should declarer continue? After North made a limit raise, South bid what he hoped he could make. (Yes, a tournament player would have treated North’s three hearts as pre-emptive; he would have cue-bid two spades to show heart support and at least game-invitational values.) At first glance, South has two unavoidable spade losers. He also has only 11 top tricks: one spade, six hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Yes, the bidding tells declarer that East started with a singleton spade, but how does that help? Declarer cashes his diamond ace and heart queen. When the trumps are 2-1, South plays a trump to the dummy, ruffs the last diamond, unblocks his two club honors, returns to dummy with a trump, and discards a spade on the club queen. Then comes the taxing play: Declarer leads dummy’s last club, and when East follows suit, South does not ruff; instead, he discards another spade. East is trapped. He has only diamonds left, and on this trick, declarer sluffs his last spade and ruffs on the board.

he write a prescription. What do you think I should do? — Furious and Concerned Dear Furious: First of all, Ambien can come in different colors, depending on the dosage. We assume these are sample drugs that John happens to have handy. The real issue is that your family is eager to take advantage of John’s ability to provide such medication for free and without needing to see their regular physician. They have the option not to follow his advice or take what he offers, but they prefer the convenience.
Not much of a view Dear Annie: You’ve printed letters about theater and concert patrons who stand up or squash you in your seat. I have a better one. I sat in the worst seat on Broad-
way. I understand “obstructed view.” This was NO view. I was in the front row. All I could see was a staircase and the backs of actors who were seated in chairs on stage. I was brokenhearted. I found an usher at intermission and demanded to be seated elsewhere. She told me this is what happens when you buy discount tickets at the last minute. But she took me to the last row of the theater and said, “This way you can see the terrific part with the mirror.” I gasped, “There’s a mirror?” The second act was great, although I had to ask the people next to me to stop texting during the performance. Afterward, I found the usher and thanked her. Then I wrote the box office manager and the theater owners and asked that they please stop selling this seat. I haven’t heard back. — Don’t Stick a Broadway Baby in a Corner Dear Baby: Most theaters have at least one horrible seat, but it’s hard to know that when you purchase at the last minute, especially when those tickets are discounted. There’s a reason
those are the seats that are left. Good for you for speaking up and finding a kind usher willing (and able) to seat you elsewhere.
Hosting can be fun Dear Annie: “Still Waiting” complained that few people reciprocate dinner invitations anymore. Since moving to an active senior community two years ago, my husband and I have hosted about 18 dinners in our home, everything from casual suppers to large parties. Reciprocation in these friends’ homes has been rare, but we don’t care. We’ve enjoyed every one of the meals. We don’t have special cooking skills, and hosting a dinner takes time and effort, but it’s fun and has the added advantage of cozy chats that don’t happen in a noisy restaurant. — W.

Intensive diet and exercise gold standard for diabetics DEAR DOCTOR K: I just heard on the radio that some study says that intensive diet and exercise don’t decrease heart disease risk in diabetics. Is this true? If so, I’ve made a lot of hard changes in my life for nothing. DEAR READER: I assume you’re referring to results from the recently publicized Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) trial. The results of this study were reported in June of this year. Several of my patients have already asked me about it, and what I’ve told them is: Take these results with several grains of salt. Here’s what we know: Type 2 diabetes increases the risk of stroke and heart disease, and stroke and heart disease are the leading causes of death and disability among people with diabetes. We also have strong evidence from many studies that people who achieve a healthy weight and exercise regularly have a lower risk of stroke and heart disease. So you would think that overweight people with Type 2 diabetes also would benefit from a program of intensive diet and exercise. The Look AHEAD trial explored how changes in diet and exercise affected heart disease risk in this

population. The results weren’t what most people — myself included — expected. The study was a large, randomized trial — the strongest type of study. Researchers recruited more than 5,000 overweight men and women with Type 2 diabetes. Half were assigned at random to lose weight and maintain their weight loss through intensive diet and exercise. The other group — called a “control group” — met three times a year for group counseling sessions to discuss lifestyle changes to control diabetes. After almost 10 years, the rates of heart attacks, strokes and heart-related deaths were essentially the same in both groups. For many of us, that result was a real downer. That is, until you read the study in detail. For example, the people in the intensive-change group lost only slightly more weight than the control group: 4 percent versus
Mak e wisa h
2.5 percent. So though the research team called it “intensive diet and exercise,” it did not do a lot to achieve the goal of weight loss. A second important difference between the intensive-change group and the control group is that the latter group was taking more heart-healthy medicines. So any real benefits from the slightly better weight loss in the intensive-change group might have been canceled out by this difference in medicines. Lifestyle changes did have some health benefits in this study. People in the intensive-change group improved their blood sugar with fewer drugs, and they lowered their risk for other diabetes complications such as chronic kidney disease and vision problems. Some patients with Type 2 diabetes who achieve a healthy weight and exercise regularly can control their blood sugar without needing medicines any longer. So I’ve told my patients that I don’t think this study means that any of us should stop seeking a healthy weight and exercising regularly.

HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everything has its time. The object that is coveted, revered and utterly reflective of this moment will lose value after this moment has passed. It’s something to think about before you take out your wallet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your cells regenerate, and your spirit restores. It’s l i k e y o u’r e b e c o m i n g younger with every hour today, and you don’t have to make any kind of effort to do so. You’re naturally optimistic. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People who aren’t sure whether they can help you or not will be reserved until they determine exactly how they can be of service. Make it easy. Talk about what will move you forward. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your weaknesses are offset by your considerable strengths. But just think about what you could do in a partnership with someone who is strong in the areas where you are weak. Seek collaboration. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Giving is not always a sacrifice. Being generous has a way of exhilarating you, especially when you see the difference your contributions make in the lives of others. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Strip away some of what you were taught. It’s not that the lessons were wrong or inferior; it’s just that they were given to you from someone else’s experience. Work from your own experience instead. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one can give you more time, but people can sure help you waste the time you have. Actively guard against distractions. Anticipate what could happen to
knock you off your game, and prepare a defense. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be working by yourself. This scenario makes it challenging to know how you compare to others in the marketplace. Ask both insiders and outsiders their opinion. Get another point of view. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). If you follow your whimsy, it might be considered lollygagging. It might also lead to enormous joy. If you have fun with what you’re doing, you’ll find success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You don’t want to put your signature on your work; you want your work to be your signature. When people can tell it’s your work by the work itself, you’ll have reached the level of originality you desire. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love is a bit of an obstacle course these days, and you may find yourself tunneling under or scaling over enormous barriers to emotional intimacy. It makes jumping through the hoops seem like child’s play. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 2 0 ) . Lie detectors are designed on the premise that dishonesty causes bodily stress. You’ll take some of the pressure off by getting rid of the expectation or rule that is keeping people from telling the truth. (If you would like to write to Holiday Mathis, go to www.creators.com.)
Estrogen needed by men By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer Surprising new research shows a different hormone may play a role in less sex drive and more fat as men age. Estrogen — the female hormone — is needed by men, too, and the study gives the first clear evidence that too little of it can cause certain “male menopause” symptoms. “A lot of things we think are due to testosterone deficiency are actually related to the estrogen deficiency that accompanies it,” said Dr. Joel Finkelstein of Massachusetts General Hospital. He led the federally funded study, which appears in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. Testosterone is the main male sex hormone. Men’s bodies convert some of it into estrogen, and levels of both decline with age. Until
now, there was no way to tell which hormone was responsible for complaints o f d i m i n i s h e d l i b i d o, strength and energy. The study didn’t test hormones as therapy, but explored which ones had which effects. It involved 400 healthy male volunteers, ages 20 to 50, who were given monthly shots of a drug to temporarily reduce their testosterone production to pre-puberty levels. They were then given various doses of testosterone gel or a dummy gel to use. Half also were given another drug to prevent testosterone’s conversion into estrogen. After 16 weeks, researchers saw that musc l e s i z e a n d s t re n g t h depended on testosterone, body-fat mass depended on estrogen, and both hormones were needed to maintain normal sex drive and performance.

Man charged after stabbing By HANNAH JOHNSON Bismarck Tribune A 22-year-old man was charged with Class C felony aggravated assault Wednesday for stabbing his roommate. The roommate, a 19-year-old man, was treated and released from the hospital after suffering stab wounds to his head, neck and arm, Bismarck Police
Officer Pat Renz said. Officers were called to the south Holiday gas station Wednesday morning because Jonathan Youngbird had walked in with dried blood on his face. Youngbird told officers he had been jumped by other individuals, Renz said, but was uncooperative, aggressive and vulgar towards the officers. He was originally arrest-
ed for disorderly conduct and taken to the emergency room. While at the hospital, the officer who accompanied him was told by another officer that a stabbing had been reported at Youngbird’s home, Renz said. Youngbird was medically cleared and is being held at Burleigh County Detention Center.
$485M wheat deal lion to the state’s farmers, Peterson said. Taiwan, which has only one-fifth the land mass of North Dakota and a population of more than 23 million, has been one of the state’s biggest and most dependable markets for hard spring wheat, said Dalrymple, whose family has
grown wheat in North Dakota since the late 1880s. “Anyone who buys wheat from North Dakota is a friend of ours,” the governor said. North Dakota wheat is sold to more than 80 countries, and Taiwan is the state’s third-largest market behind Japan and the
Philippines, Peterson said. Taiwan has been doing business with the state’s wheat growers for nearly 50 years, he said. Taiwanese millers prize North Dakota hard spring wheat for its high protein, quality, color and shelf life, Peterson said. “They’ve been very good
Continued from 1B customers,” Peterson said of Taiwanese millers. “They pay premium prices and they pay cash. They’ve never used credit.” Taiwan also has signed letters of intent to buy more than $3 billion in corn and soybeans in 2014 and 2015, with some of it coming from North Dakota, Hoeven said.
Joplin chief Continued from 1B point, we had the leadership in all directions,” he said. “It helped guide our reactions and responses.” He said local entities’ emergency plans are important when disaster causes chaos. “We had plans in place, but they were by no means large enough in scope,” he said. “Those have been rewritten because of the scope and complete destruction and damage that we suffered.” There were some important lessons from the experience, he said. “You can’t fall into an old model that you set up. I need to do this so you can recover in a way that’s beneficial to everyone.” Debris removal was completed in 60 days because of emergency bidding by the city, according to Randles. Randles thanked the volunteers for the 1.2 million volunteer hours recorded. The city can redeem the volunteers for Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursement of damages, he said.
Take charge Randles emphasized that local officials need to take charge during a large emergency. FEMA is there to assist. He said having a thorough knowledge of local resources and a plan for FEMA can help speed up the process and determine when more resources arrive. He said Joplin city officials had a plan to place FEMA temporary housing in an industrial park of the city and the industrial map ready to show to FEMA officials. “When you are operating with an emergency scene, you have to be decisive. You have to know what you need, request it and give a timeline,” he said. He said the request to FEMA needs to be reasonable and doable. Temporary housing can’t be ready in two days, but can be done in less than six or eight months, he said. Randles said he did his research about temporary fire halls available through FEMA and knew they could
be ready in three weeks instead of several months. “Find out what you’re going to discuss, do your homework,” he said. “Have the people who make those decisions and stick to those decisions at that meeting.”
Changes Joplin has changed since the 2011 tornado on many levels. Attempts to change city code to require everyone to build a “safe room” in each home and business failed, but Randles said most people and businesses are building one anyway. He said the city is sounding its sirens less because people hear them so much and ignore them. “We were ‘the boy who cried wolf.’” he said. “We only do it (now) when it is a radar-confirmed or spotterconfirmed tornado or a wind-speed of 75 mph or more ... Now when they hear a siren, they absolutely know that there is something significant happening and they need to seek shel-
ter.” Two of the city’s fire halls are being rebuilt to follow city growth for better response time. “We’re a closer community than we ever were before,” he said. “We had to be. We had such a significant event that everyone had to depend on everyone else. We are looking at developing our city in a much different manner rather than rebuilding exactly as it was.” Randles’ own home was destroyed in the 2011 tornado. Being the fire chief, the needs of the city took priority over his own home recovery. He said fire engines were lost, but replaceable. “Now, we have a good 80 to 85 percent of our homes being rebuilt, completed or under permit to rebuild,” he said. “About 90 percent of our businesses are rebuilt, being built or under permit to rebuild.” (Reach LeAnn Eckroth at 701-250-8264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)

The story that never gets away I don’t even know who manufactured it, but the stamp on the barrel reads Pioneer. These days, it sits unassumingly in the corner of my gun safe, hidden away in a notquite-as-old camo gun case. Aside from the fact that it’s a 20-gauge side-by-side, I don’t know a whole lot about the gun itself.
What I do know is it was the first gun that I was able to call my very own. For a time when I was growing up in Sheridan County, my folks owned a Gamble’s hardware store. Like the 20-gauge, there aren’t many — if any — of those hardware stores around any more these days. At the store we sold nuts and bolts, of course, but we also sold appliances, bicycles, baseball bats and a few guns and ammunition. I grew up in a time where hand-me-downs were standard operating procedure. I have an older and a younger brother, and we all learned to shoot with the same guns. For a long gun, it was a beat-up .22-caliber bolt action single shot with open sights. My older brother still has that gun in his gun safe, and it’s probably worth today what it went for then — 20 bucks or so. If my guess is correct, it likely sits alongside an old, equally beat up .303 British that our dad used to lug around during deer season. I’m pretty sure we all shot our first deer with that gun, just as we probably all shot our first duck with an old Model 97 Winchester16-gauge. That particular gun was passed down from our grandpa to our dad, then on down the line. My younger brother ended up with it about the time I was 15, when I got the double barrel. When dad passed away, of course, we all wanted to keep the 97 for ourselves. But instead, we decided to give it to our uncle, dad’s only brother. When Uncle Les passed away, the gun found its way back to us, and usually about this time of the year, we pull it out just to look at it. It still shoots just fine — never mind the scratches on the stock and other assorted dings here and there. It’s the same thing with my old double barrel; character, I call it, personally. I reblued the metal on it a few years back and had to take it to a gunsmith to get one of the firing pins worked on, but it still shoots fine. And, on occasion, I will take it along during the upland game season for old time’s sake. Honestly, I can probably count the number of birds I have taken with that gun in the last 30 years on both hands. But it takes me back. It reminds me of my first double on partridge the first hunting season I carried. My dad and our friend, Larry Fox, were back at the truck waiting while I decided to walk a little nothing patch of brush. I’m not sure whose smile was bigger — theirs or that of a 15-year-old who had just made the shot of the day. It made me smile then. And it still does.

North Dakota 2013 hunting season taking off By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune North Dakota, if nothing else, is notorious for being a land of extremes. That is particularly true when it comes to the weather and with our wildlife population. Hunters who have been chasing birds or bucks for the past 20 years have seen the pendulum swing back to the down side when it comes to wildlife populations. The 2013 hunting season is right around the corner, and while a few seasons have already opened, the big ones in terms of participation are coming up this weekend with grouse, partridge and youth waterfowl. Historically, the number of hunters taking to the fields in North Dakota has been holding its own to increasing slightly, bucking the national trend of fewer hunters. Even with the aging demographic of our hunters, there is a strong segment of today’s sportsmen and sportswomen that have experienced outstanding opportunities over the course of the past two decades. And like the weather, things are changing on the landscape with respect to habitat, which is the ultimate driving force as to how good — or not so good — the opportunities will be for hunters. Randy Kreil, wildlife chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, likened hunters’ expectations to technological advances: The more technology improves, the higher the expectation of the hunter. Going back to 2007, three straight harsh winters put a dent in deer numbers, which this year again was reflected in fewer deer gun licenses availa b l e. Add to that a flood
and a drought, wildlife populations have had their share of stressors in the past five yeard. But Kreil said the key factor is the loss of habitat. “Unfortunately, this trend that started in about 2007 is not only continuing, it has accelerated in the past year,” Kreil says in an upcoming issue of North Dakota Outdoors. “The loss of Conservation Reserve Program grasslands, native prairie, wetlands and shelterbelts is ongoing at an alarming rate.” Game and Fish Department biologists, in their annual hunting season preview, point to the loss of habitat, how it relates to wildlife populations and how that might affect hunters in the field.
Opens Oct. 12 Most of south central and southwestern parts of the state had a good winter, until a blizzard hit in mid-April. The storm hit at a time when pheasants were leaving winter cover for breeding areas. When the snow melted, May brought almost continuous rain throughout the state. Preliminary numbers indicate total pheasants are down about 30-40 percent statewide from last year, the lowest since 2003. In addition, brood observations were down 43 percent, and the average brood size was down 4 percent. Initially, things appeared not to be as bad as first thought. Spring crowing counts were only down 11 percent statewide from 2012, and were comparable to 2011 counts. In recent years, the number of pheasant hunters has dropped below 100,000, with a harvest running about 600,000 roosters annually. It seems that with a harvest of 500,000 roosters or more, hunters deem it a good pheasant year.
Opens Sept. 14 Snow, rain, drought and loss of habitat have sharp-tail and partridge numbers down. Even though spring survey numbers indicated a population comparable to last year, the late-summer counts showed otherwise. Data from summer roadside counts indicate sharp-tailed grouse populations are down significantly from last year. Brood
results suggest grouse numbers are down 51 percent statewide, with the number of broods observed down 50 percent. The average brood size is about the same as 2012, and the age ratio is up 19 percent.
Opens Oct. 12 Wild turkey numbers are down from a few years ago, the result of several years of poor production. Even though last spring was a fairly good production year, North Dakota’s breeding population was low, limiting the number of young produced. As a result, the number of both spring and fall licenses have been reduced to coincide with the lower population in almost all turkey hunting units. Major flooding on the Missouri, Little Missouri and Souris river bottomlands in 2011 inundated thousands of acres of nesting habitat. To allow for more summer production information in the fall season-setting process, the Game and Fish Department rescheduled the fall turkey application deadline to Sept. 4 to allow time to analyze additional brood information before determining license numbers. Habitat conditions in most areas of the state are good for turkeys and for the most part, weather conditions were favorable for nesting and brooding hens. License numbers this fall are reduced from last year in many units, but hunters should be able to find birds if they concentrate on wooded river bottoms, drainages and forested areas.
Resident season opens Sept. 21 Wetland conditions and waterfowl numbers remain good in North Dakota. The 2013 water index was up 17 percent from 2012 and was 12 percent better than the 1948-2012 average. Breeding duck numbers decreased from last year, but were still well above the 65-year average — the 12th highest on record, but down 17 percent from 2012, which was the third highest index on record. The 2013 duck index was 73 percent above the long-term average. Mallards were up 6 percent and were the fifth highest on record; scaup increased 23 percent; pintails and canvasbacks were up 2 percent; shovelers were down 1 percent, basically unchanged.

ANS regs apply to Bird deaths from wind farms studied waterfowlers, too By DINA CAPPIELLO Associated Press
For good reason, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department makes every effort to explain waterfowl hunting rules and regulations that hunters will need to know as they take the field this fall. That includes daily bag limits, species restrictions, season lengths, special zones and hunting hours. Most of the areas of interest are set within frameworks established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. But North Dakota has other rules that apply to waterfowl hunters, anglers and summer recreation boaters when it comes to aquatic nuisance species. The challenge of preventing spread of ANS within or into North Dakota is great, and the responsibility lies with all of us who use state waters for recreation or work. It doesn’t take Dick Tracy to figure out that stopping your kitchen sink from leaking is cheaper and a better alternative than waiting until the leak becomes a complete break. And ANS prevention fits into the same philosophy. I’ve had people tell me that even with known ANS, their fishing hasn’t suffered and is actually better in North Dakota now than ever before. While that may be true, North Dakota doesn’t have many locations where ANS have taken over — yet. In most cases, the initial presence of ANS doesn’t immediately influence a fishery. It’s more like a slow death, with a waterway slowly losing its integrity and value as habitat for fish and waterfowl as well. The change can be so slow that by the time we realize that ANS is a real problem, it is too late to do anything about it. In most cases, once a water is infested it will likely never be completely rid of the nuisance species. Not only does this degrade the water itself, it also makes the water a potential source for infestation of other areas. All boaters and water
recreation users must understand that in North Dakota and other states, it is now illegal to transport aquatic vegetation. Here’s a rundown on how this applies to waterfowl hunters and fall anglers: ■ Remove all aquatic vegetation at the site. Period. Most people have no problem recognizing the “seaweed” on duck boat trailers or engine propellers, but all aquatic vegetation must be taken off before leaving. That includes decoy weights and strings that can easily transport a threat, and waders that might be carrying plant fragments. The rule does not include above-water vegetation like cattails and bulrushes used for making hunting blinds. ■ Drain water from all places. That is not just for boat users. It could be a floating decoy with a hole in it, literally anything holding water — the bottom of the boat, the decoy bag, even if you fall in with your waders, begin the dry-out process by emptying those out too. And one last reminder for fall fishing: There’s plenty of warm October days — at least we hope so. And even when nobody is looking or you have the lake all to yourself, please don’t dump your bait into the lake. Most bait vendors do a great job of keeping the minnows free of ANS, but all it takes is one little bullhead or one seed from an unknown ANS to ruin a waterway. We want to leave a heritage of hunting, not a legacy of what hunting once was. Part of that is maintaining habitat above the water, but habitat in the water is just as important.

Father: It’s a miracle son survived mauling By RACHEL D’ORO Associated Press ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The father of a Rhode Island man who was mauled by a grizzly bear in Alaska said Wednesday it’s a miracle that his son is alive after suffering bites to his head and leg. John O. Matson Jr. of Charlestown, R.I., was listed in fair condition Wednesday at an Anchorage hospital. “He’s got a hell of a headache,” said his father, John O. Matson Sr. of Hopkinton, R. I., adding that his 46-year-old son was recuperating after head surgery. “His spirits are great.” The younger Matson was attacked by the bear Monday during a guided bear hunt near Beaver Mountain, about 40 miles southwest of the interior town of McGrath. Bad weather prevented rescuers from quickly reaching Matson’s party of three. Matson was finally rescued from the remote spot on Tuesday. Matson’s father credits the two other hunters, also from Rhode Island, with saving his son. The guide, Steve Persson of Charlestown, and another man the father wouldn’t identify were packing to leave the hunting camp. They planned to visit their wounded friend later at Providence Alaska Medical Center. “He’s very grateful to his friends,” the elder Matson said. His son, a construction contractor, does not want to speak with reporters about his ordeal, but he does want people to know he’s OK, the father said. Matson Jr. was attacked about 90 minutes after first
wounding the bear. Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said the hunters had initially seen the bear feeding on berries. They were about a mile away and approached the animal for the first time. Matson shot at the bear and saw it roll into bushes, Peters said. The grizzly ran off into heavier brush after it flailed about in the brush for a while. Peters said the hunters waited about 90 minutes, then went after the bear again in some thickets. That’s where Matson was attacked. The two others were a short distance away, and the guide heard Matson scream and fire his weapon. The grizzly ran off after Matson’s friends fired shots at the animal. The three men then headed back to their camp about a mile away. The others used clothing to wrap Matson’s profusely bleeding head and took care of him the best they could, according to Peters. “They kept him awake all night talking to him,” she said. Bad weather prevented a flight from reaching the injured hunter on Monday. On Tuesday morning, the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center sent an Alaska Air National Guard team to the area in a Pave Hawk helicopter. Rescuers initially couldn’t find the hunters because of bad weather and their inability to make contact with the men. They had to halt the search for a while so they could refuel in McGrath before resuming the search. They found the hunters early that afternoon.
WASHINGTON — Wind energy facilities have killed at least 67 golden and bald eagles in the last five years, but the figure could be much higher, according to a new scientific study by government biologists. The research represents one of the first tallies of eagle deaths attributed to the nation’s growing wind energy industry, which has been a pillar of President Barack Obama’s plans to reduce the pollution blamed for global w a r m i n g . Wi n d p owe r releases no air pollution. But at a minimum, the scientists wrote, wind farms in 10 states have killed at least 85 eagles since 1997, with most deaths occurring between 2008 and 2012, as the industry was greatly expanding. Most deaths — 79 — were golden eagles that struck wind turbines. One of the eagles counted in the study was electrocuted by a power line. The vice president of the American Bird Conservancy, Mike Parr, said the tally was “an alarming and concerning finding.” A trade group, the AmeriSolunar tables

FISHING REPORT The September bite is shaping up to be a good one on both the Missouri River system and on Lake Sakakawea. Anglers were reporting decent success on walleyes in the Hazelton area and farther downstream. Jigs and minnows were producing walleyes in the 15-18 inch range with an occasional bigger fish here and there. The Tailrace has been producing a mix of species but it’s a tight window — a few hours before and after sundown. Three ways in t h e c u r re n t , d r i f t i n g L i n d y ’s a n d j i g s a n d pulling cranks back up have all been catching walleyes with few trout here and there. Lake Sakakawea has still been consistent for walleyes — although there is a lot of water to cover. Bigger walleyes have been coming off deep-running cranks in 35-45 feet of water. Traditional presentations of spinners and bottom bouncers with worms have been working as well in 25 feet coming off points. The salmon bite has been decent, but not outstanding yet. The morning bite, before noon, is better right now in 90-plus feet of water. — Brian Gehring

can Wind Energy Association, said in a statement that the figure was much lower than other causes of eagle deaths. The group said it was working with the government and conservation groups to find ways to reduce eagle casualties. Still, the scientists said their figure is likely to be “substantially” underestimated, since companies report eagle deaths voluntarily and only a fraction of those included in their total were discovered during searches for dead birds by wind-energy companies. The study also excluded the deadliest place in the country for eagles, a cluster of wind farms in a northern California area known as Altamont Pass. Wind farms built there decades ago kill more than 60 per year. “It is not an isolated event that is restricted to one place in California, it is pretty widespread,” said Brian Millsap, the national raptor coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and one of the study’s authors. T h e s t u d y e xc l u d e d 17 eagle deaths for which there was not enough evidence. And, in a footnote, it says more golden and bald
eagles have since been killed at wind energy facilities in three additional states — Idaho, Montana, and Nevada. It’s unclear what toll the deaths could be having on local eagle populations. And while the golden eagle population is stable in the West, any additional mortality to a long-lived species such as an eagle can be a “tipping point,” Millsap said. The research affirms an AP investigation in May, which revealed dozens of eagle deaths from wind energy facilities and described how the Obama administration was failing to fine or prosecute wind energy companies, even though each death is a violation of federal law. Documents obtained by the AP under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act show that in two cases in Iowa federal investigators determined that a bald eagle had been killed by blunt force trauma with a wind turbine blade. But neither case led to prosecution. In one of the cases, a bald eagle was found with a missing wing and a leg in a corn field near a turbine at EDP Renewables North America LLC’s Pioneer Prairie facility

in Iowa. But the report says, “due to the sensitive nature of wind farm investigations and the fact that this investigation documented first violation for EDPR in Midwest, no charges will be pursued at this time.” The report lists four other golden eagle deaths at a wind farm operated by the company in Oregon. The company did not return emailed questions about the incidents . The Fish and Wildlife Service, which employs the six researchers, has said it is investigating 18 bird-death cases involving wind-power facilities, and seven have been referred to the Justice Department. The authors noted the study’s findings do not necessarily reflect the v i e w s o f t h e a g e n c y, although some of their data was obtained from staff. Meanwhile, the White House is currently evaluating giving companies permission to kill a set number of eagles for 30 years.

Mystics break out the brooms Bismarck State sweeps WSC in Mon-Dak action
Murschel a big hit with the Miners
By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune Williston State and NDSCSWahpeton have been the top dogs in the Mon-Dak volleyball standings for several years. Bismarck State coach Jeni Walsh and the Mystics are doing their best to change that. BSC showed it was for real on Wednesday night with a 25-19, 2513, 25-20 sweep over the Williston State Tetons at the BSC Armory. The Mystics remained unbeaten in the conference at 3-0 and bettered their overall mark to 14-3. Williston State fell to 2-1 in the Mon-Dak and to 6-9 overall. “Williston and Wahpeton have been the teams to beat in this conference for many years,” Walsh said. “We like to think we are throwing our hat in that ring also, and we would like to be somebody they circle on their schedule. “Williston State is a premier team in our conference. Not only to beat them, but to beat them 3-0, is an accomplishment.” The Mystics showed a balanced attack all evening with seven hitters recording two or more kills. Madison Deibert led the way with nine while Leslie Beaudoin added eight and Kelsey Glatt five. “It starts with ball control in the back row,” said Beaudoin, a 5-foot10 sophomore middle hitter from Dickinson. “From pin to pin we have so many options. Our back row was amazing tonight, which opened up our hitters. The kills were widespread. One hitter doesn’t always have the kills. It’s a wide range.” Katie Ramlo set the attack with 27 assists. Walsh has enjoyed watching the sophomore from

Jamestown progress into a college setter. “Katie Ramlo did a fantastic job of running our offense to keep the defense on their toes,” Walsh said. “We have a lot of weapons coming at the net, and for her to spread the
ball out like that and make their middle blocker work pin to pin is (great). “We started working with her in the spring. It was a confidence issue with Katie. She has done a 180 for me, and she is playing very
good volleyball right now.” Libero Casey Reamann led the Mystics with 12 digs and six service aces. The sophomore from Century fired five of those aces in a 12-0 second-game run. Continued on 4D
Agnew ready for final season U-Mary senior hopes for a healthier 2013 By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune University of Mary cross country coach Dennis Newell had such high hopes for his women’s squad last season. A couple injuries and a harrier that didn’t return put a kink in Newell’s plans. The Marauders continued on and finished 13th at the national meet, having finished fifth the year before. Jennifer Agnew was one of the key losses because of injury. Coming off an All-American season, she suffered from tendonitis at the top of both of her knees, which made running uncomfortable. She needed lots of rest, icing and rehabilitation. The result was a redshirt season. She was able to compete in indoor and outdoor track and field, but she needed the fall season to recover. Agnew is returning for her
Jamie Murschel hopes to lead Beulah to the state volleyball tournament.
final year of cross country. The Marauders open their season Friday at the Randy Smith Invitational in Moorhead, Minn. “I’m coming off a good track season,” said Agnew, who is from Onamia, Minn. “The summer has been injury-free. I took a couple weeks off after the outdoor national meet. That’s what got me last year. I went out a little too fast.” Newell is glad somebody of Agnew’s caliber is returning to lead the squad. “I’m glad it wasn’t an injury that took her out completely,” Newell said. “In the two weeks I’ve worked with her this year she has been unbelievable. That gives us hope and promise that we’re on the right track.” The Marauders lost three major contributors from last season — All-Americans Melissa Agnew and Dakota Wolf and Alicia Nehl. Melissa Agnew is Jennifer’s twin sister. Melissa has moved to the Twin Cities, marking the first time they have been separated for a long period of time. “It’s going to be different,” Jennifer said. “She’s the one person I
could rely on. She is my go-to person. Not having her here will be hard.” For Newell, it’s been fun to watch the bond the sisters share. “Both will go through some struggles and growing pains,” Newell said. “It will be new for them. They have been together their whole life and are best friends. Both will have to figure some things out.” The Marauders were picked second in the Northern Sun preseason poll and didn’t crack into the national top 25. Agnew does have talent surrounding her, however. Joining Agnew will be senior Megan Beam, a transfer from Montana State; senior Kayla Carlson from Big Fork, Mont.; junior Nicole Huelsman, a Century graduate; junior Erin Leier from Esmond. “I think this team has potential,” said Agnew, a physical therapy major. “We don’t have a lot of depth, but we have a good wellrounded five or six. It’s maintaining that and staying healthy.” The men’s team will be without the services of Jesse Bennett, who is redshirting. Leading the Continued on 4D
University of Mary cross country runner Jennifer Agnew was hampered by tendonitis throughout last season.
For Jaime Murschel, the move from Ray to Beulah before the 2012-13 school year was difficult at first. It got a bit worse when her former high school volleyball team, the Ray Jays, went on to play in the Class B state tournament that November. Murschel and the Beulah Miners, meanwhile, had to settle for second place in Region 7. Murschel attended the state tournament, and admitted having mixed emotions throughout that weekend. “It was fun being there and watching Ray and all. I had a lot of friends on that team,” she said. “But it was hard knowing that I used to play with them and that they had achieved something that I’ve wanted for a long, long time. And it was hard because (Beulah) was so close to getting there. But I like it in Beulah, and I like playing volleyball here. We all want to go to state and we’re hoping we can reach that goal this year.” Beulah dropped a tough fiveset match to Dickinson Trinity in the region final last season. The final game of that match ended 15-13 in Trinity’s favor. Murschel doesn’t want to let another opportunity slip away this fall. Neither do her teammates. A 5-foot-8 junior outside hitter, Murschel is one of several key players returning from a 2012 team that won 26 matches and captured the District 14 tournament championship. “We believe we have a team that can go far,” Murschel said. “We have the talent and a lot of experience. We just have to keep working hard and stay focused. We have some work to do, but hopefully we’ll be playing our best volleyball at tournament time.” Murschel was already a varsity veteran when she arrived in Beulah. She saw extensive action her eighth-grade and freshman years at Ray. Beulah volleyball coach Kevin Peterson was excited to have a player of Murschel’s caliber join the program. “Ray has a very good volleyball program and a very good coach in Michelle Dolan,” he said. “Jaime came to us ready to play and she helped us out tremendously last year. She is a solid allaround player, and what’s really exciting is she hasn’t reached her full potential yet. She has a lot of volleyball left in her.” Murschel led the Miners in kills in 2012 with 377, and continues to lead the team in that category this season. Continued on 4D
Vikings offensive line issues leak into regular season By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Matt Kalil made his rookie season look almost easy last year. He was chosen fourth overall by the Minnesota Vikings, started at left tackle the minute he hit the practice field and helped pave the way for a 2,000-yard season from Adrian Peterson. He made the Pro
Bowl as an injury replacement and cemented himself as one of the rising stars at his position with a seamless transition from USC to the NFL. Kalil’s second season is off to a little shakier start, with an uninspiring preseason following a rough showing in the season opener at Detroit. Now Kalil and the rest of Minnesota’s offensive line are looking to restore their reputation
as one of the best units in the league. “I’m the hardest person on myself,” Kalil said after practice on Wednesday. “I know what I have to fix. I’ve got my mind straight this week and I’m ready to get after it. I’m not freaked out. I had a bad game.” He wasn’t the only one. After a 78-yard touchdown run on the Vikings’ first play, Peterson man-
aged just 17 yards on 15 more carries in the 34-24 loss to the Lions. The reigning MVP had nowhere to run, and beleaguered quarterback Christian Ponder was under heavy pressure for most of the afternoon by an aggressive Lions defensive front that controlled the game. “We have to be better,” left guard Charlie Johnson said. “There was one run, obviously, when everybody did their job. That
shows we’re going to be pretty successful. Outside of that, you don’t feel very good about getting stuffed in the run game.” As Kalil reflected on the performance, he sounded like a player who was still working the rust off after seeing extensive action in just one preseason game. He spoke of the increase in speed and intensity, and the adjustment to using a Continued on 4D

SPORTS DIGEST Red Sox to unveil statue of Carl Yastrzemski ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Boston Red Sox plan to honor Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski with a statue outside Fenway Park. The team announced Wednesday that a dedication ceremony will take place before Boston’s Sept. 22 game against Toronto. Yastrzemski is scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The statue will capture a
moment that took place on October 2, 1983, when the Red Sox star tipped his helmet to fans at Fenway Park before the final at-bat. Yastrzemski says the statue is quite an honor, something he “never could have imagined.” It will be the third statue outside the ballpark’s Gate B entrance, and will be placed between the Ted Williams statue and “The Teammates” statue depicting Dom DiMaggio, Johnny Pesky, Bobby Doerr, and Williams.

Police clear Suh for pellet gun confrontation BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) — Police in an affluent Detroit suburb have cleared Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of any charges for waving a pellet gun in front of a cable company worker attempting repairs to a line on the player’s property. Birmingham police say the cable worker thought the gun looked like an assault
rifle and feared for his safety. They say Suh told them he feared for his family and said he’d be even more aggressive protecting them than he is on the football field. Police say the confrontation happened Aug. 16. Police say Suh didn’t point the weapon at the Comcast employee but waived it around. Suh said Wednesday he’s appealing the NFL’s $100,000 fine for his illegal hit Sunday on Minnesota center John Sullivan.

The Marauders piled up 599 yards in total offense. 50 YEARS AGO (1963): Tom Hublou caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Terry Deichert with 48 seconds remaining as St. Mary’s gained a 6-6 tie with Bismarck in high school football. The tie snapped the Saints’ long 18-game losing streak.

MLB ROUNDUP AMERICAN LEAGUE Athletics 18, Twins 3
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jed Lowrie’s foul ball that turned into a two-run double after umpires changed the call highlighted a 10-run fourth inning as Oakland pounded Minnesota on Wednesday. Every Oakland starter had at least one hit, one run and one RBI as the A’s recorded a seasonhigh 22 hits and extended their lead over Texas in the AL West to three games. Lowrie, Coco Crisp and Stephen Vogt also homered. Yoenis Cespedes had three RBIs to help the A’s score their most runs in a game since beating Boston 20-2 on Aug. 31, 2012. Sonny Gray, who had received fewer than four runs of support over his last six starts, struck out seven in five innings for the win.

MIAMI (AP) — In his season finale, Miami Marlins rookie sensation Jose Fer nandez pitched seven innings, hit his first major-league homer and engaged in a standoff with annoyed Atlanta that cleared both benches and bullpens. When he had completed his eventful evening, Fernandez slowly walked off the mound one last time, removing his cap as the crowd gave him a standing ovation. Two relievers pitched the final two innings, and the woeful Marlins beat the playoff-bound Braves 5-2.

Green Bay RB Eddie Lacy learning on the job By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. — Hold on to the ball. Chip the pass rusher on the inside shoulder. Track his offensive linemen’s helmets to find the holes. So many tasks to pick up for the Packers’ Eddie Lacy. It’s on-the-job training for the rookie running back. “There’s always room for improvement. It was my first (game). I did some things well and there (are) some things I have to clean up,” the rookie from Alabama said Wednesday. “There’s always little details in everything.” He’s heeding to the lesson plan administered by coach Mike McCarthy — work on the little things, the details — and good things should follow for Green Bay’s running game. It was a so-so NFL debut for the 5foot-11 Lacy, whose 230-pound frame seems suited to grinding out yards in the black-and-blue NFC North. He got off to a slow start with four yards on five carries, and lost a fumble at the Packers 13 that set up a San Francisco touchdown in the 49ers’ 34-28 win last week in the season opener. Lacy got benched after the turnover but regrouped in the second half. He finished with 14 carries for 41 yards and his first career touchdown, a 2-yard score that briefly gave the Packers a four-point lead in the fourth quarter. Safe to say, that milestone ball is tucked away at Lacy’s home. “It’s on my bed. I sleep with it,” Lacy said, drawing chuckles. The Packers took him in the second
round of the draft to beef up the running game and add more balance to an offense that boasts 2011 MVP Aaron Rodgers. With the Crimson Tide last year, Lacy often looked like a pinball bouncing off defenders en route to 1,322 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns, finishing with the highest yards-per-carry average (6.8) in school history. Of course, Lacy still had first-game jitters. Almost every rookie does when he first steps on to the field at the next level. His next career landmark arrives Sunday, when the Redskins visit Lambeau Field for the Packers’ home opener. Nerves aside, first-year guys are often counted on to contribute quickly at Green Bay, which abides by a “draft and develop” mantra. A right knee injury knocked DuJuan Harris from atop the depth chart for the season, putting more of a load on Lacy. “Can’t be a rookie anymore,” All-Pro guard Josh Sitton said. “It’s time to go.” Rodgers was in midseason form in the passing game last week after throwing for 333 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay scored on four quick, but long drives, including lengths of 80 and 76 yards. But aside from the two turnovers, five three-and-outs also hurt. A couple penalties brought back nice runs. Offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse said the front five is going to keep at it in “playing physical and hit people in the mouth. Things will open up for us.” Becoming more consistent on
drives has been a topic of discussion, in part to help the defense, too, Rodgers said. “So it was the good with the bad ... One first down a series is kind of the bare minimum for us,” he said. “If you do that you can semi-change field position.” Getting better on the run would help. But while the Packers expect more production, they also know that Lacy is learning on the job. “It’s the little things. Eddie’s no different than any other rookie that comes into an offense with a veteran quarterback that has the ability to do a lot of things at the line of scrimmage,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “I don’t care who you bring in here, all of our new guys who are first- and second-year players are really challenged at this time of year. I like what I see. He’s off to a good week.” NOTES: Sitton sat out practice with a sore back he said he aggravated on the long flights to and from San Francisco. His availability for Sunday is uncertain. “I’m an offensive lineman, I mean back problems are going to happen,” Sitton said. The Packers could move Don Barclay to left guard and slide Newhouse in at right tackle. ...

Fox displeased with Miller Vikings ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Fox has had it with Von Miller’s transgressions. Now, the Denver Broncos are waiting to see if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has, too. The All-Pro linebacker, who’s serving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s drug-abuse policy, was cited last week for speeding and driving with a suspended license, his second run-in with the law in less than a month. “Obviously, it’s something that we’re not happy about,” Fox said Wednesday. “Everybody here has an individual responsibility not only to themselves but to this organization, as well as to this football team. So, obviously it’s something that we’re not pleased about. I’ll leave it at that.” Asked if he felt if this latest citation could result in a longer banishment for Miller, the Broncos coach said, “You’d have to ask the commissioner that. That’s not my lane.”
The NFL declined comment. The league’s conduct policy states that discipline is possible for “conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL players,” and the commissioner has pledged to take a sterner approach with repeat offenders. However, traffic violations have generally not been a part of the league’s conduct policy. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Miller was cited on Sept. 5 near his home for speeding and driving with a suspended license. He’s due in court on Oct. 28. The traffic stop occurred at 10:30 a.m. on the day the Broncos kicked off the NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens, the first regular season game that Miller missed for repeated violations of the league’s drug-abuse policy. Robinson said Miller was pulled over for going 38 mph in a 25 mph residential zone
and a routine computer check revealed he was driving with a suspended license. Miller was with his father, Von Sr., who was then allowed to drive the vehicle, a black BMW that’s registered to Miller’s mother, Gloria, according to the summons and complaint. Miller was arrested on Aug. 10 when he tried to make a firearm purchase at a gun club near the Broncos practice facilities. A routine background check revealed he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on multiple charges from last October, when he was cited for driving carelessly and lacking a license and proof of insurance. Miller’s teammates are “still going to be there for him and help him make good decisions all the time,” linebacker and co-captain Wesley Woodyard said. “He’s like my little brother, so I’m always going to be tough on him. ... I’m always going to tell him to do the right thing.”
that I don’t already know I have to go and fix. I’m not freaking out. We’ve still got a long season and I know I’m going to get better and fix those mistakes.” Ponder’s performance — 18 of 28 for 236 yards, one touchdown, three interceptions and a lost fumble — has grabbed most of the attention and criticism this week. But the porousness of the offensive line, coupled with the struggles on defense against dynamic Lions offense, have served to ease some of the burden on the unproven quarterback’s shoulders. Frazier, Peterson and receiver Greg Jennings were all adamant that the loss to the Lions was a team-wide failure and that concentrating on Ponder’s woes was unfair. “It wasn’t just him,” Jennings said. “He can’t win the game for us. He can’t lose the game for us. Trust me. That’s the tough role that he has. If we play well, Christian looks
She is averaging 4.4 kills per game. Her average last season was 3.2. “Jaime hits a heavy ball. She has tremendous arm speed,” Peterson said. “She’s even better this year because she’s seeing more of the court. She’s doing a nice job finding the open spots. She doesn’t have to hit the ball hard to score.” Murschel said it didn’t take long for her and Beulah’s all-state setter Lakin Kessler to click. “I love having Lakin for my setter,” she said. “Good setters know their hitters and always try to put the ball where the hitters want it. I went to summer camps with the Beulah girls before I moved here and we got to know each other. By the time practice started in August we had good chemistry.” Other Beulah veterans include libero Nessa Iverson, defensive specialist Rachel Funkhouser, and hitters Delaney Johansen and Cassidy Schutt. “It’s good to have so much experience,” Murschel said. “We know each other, and we work together so well. Like in any sport, it’s all about teamwork. And it’s good to have so many good hitters. We take the pressure off each other.” The Miners also added middle hitter Courtney Mitchell, who played at Des LacsBurlington last season. In addition, all-region hitter Nicole

I call the serve from the bench, and those kids can hit that spot.” Alanna Watt led the Tetons with eight kills while Jaden Lynch totaled 22 assists. Beaudoin said the Mystics are enjoying the ride of an early successful season. “We definitely have the target on our back this year,” she said. “It makes it more fun because teams come ready to play their best games against us. That makes us play our best. Playing well is always the best way.” WSC 19 13 20 BSC 25 25 25 WSC — Kills: Alanna Watt 8, Mariah Johb 6, Masyn Klose 6. Blocks: Harlie Poschenrieder 2, Watt 1, Johb 1.

silent count to try to work through the noise at Ford Field. “There’s some things we’ve got to work with him on,” head coach Leslie Frazier said. “We’ve got to go back and look at his technique, some basic things he did so well a year ago, we have to get back to him doing on a repeated basis. We’ll do some technique and fundamental work to get him back on a foundation because we need him to play well on every snap.” Kalil said he would have his head turned in to watch for the snap from center John Sullivan, then drift too far to the outside after the ball was snapped and he turned his attention to the defensive end. That opened an inside lane for the attacking ends, something that Kalil is working to address this week in practice. “Playing well last year, people have higher standards of me, which is fine,” Kalil said. “It’s not something
Continued from 1D great. If we don’t play well, Christian will not look great. ... He doesn’t bear the whole load.” If Ponder is going to succeed in his second season as a starter, he has to get the protection up front that the Vikings expect from a veteran group that returns all five starters. “We know that they’re motivated and they’re great players, and we’re going to get it corrected,” Ponder said. “And there’s some things that I can do better, that everyone can do better; the running backs, the receivers and it’s something as an offense we can correct as a whole.” It doesn’t get much easier this week against Julius Peppers and the Chicago Bears. “There’s going to be some wrinkles the first few weeks of football,” Kalil said. “As it was last year, we’ll get better throughout the season. We’ll keep getting better and I think we’re real confident this week.”
Continued from 1D Schramm returned this fall, but is nursing a knee injury. Peterson said it is uncertain as to when she will be ready to see action. “If Nicole can come back, that would definitely give us another weapon,” the Beulah coach said. Beulah is heavy on experience, but so are Dickinson Trinity and defending District 13 champion Beach. Murschel expects another fight to the finish in Region 7. “We can’t take anything for granted,” she said. “Last year was really tough, and we’re expecting the same this year. We know Trinity and Beach are going to be strong again, and there are other teams that are going to be good. Everybody’s goal right now is to go to state. We have to play our best.”
Super Regional Region 7 will begin its Super Regional for volleyball and basketball this school year. The District 13 and 14 tournaments will not be played. There are a total of 12 teams in the region, and play-in games-matches will be played to trim the field to eight. The tournament will have a single-elimination format. “It should be really interesting. It’s the first time anything like this will be done in North Dakota,” Peterson said. “We’ll see how it all pans out.”

Did Penske strike deal to get Logano into Chase? By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer Tiny Front Row Motorsports asked for a deal from Penske Racing in the closing laps of last weekend’s race at Richmond and then helped make sure Penske’s Joey Logano made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by having one of its drivers back off, according to an Associated Press review of radio communications. David Gilliland’s spotter tells his crew that Logano’s team wanted Gilliland’s spot on the track “and they said they’d probably be able to help us in the future,” according to the review of Front Row’s radio communications. “You tell that spotter up there it better pay big,” replies someone believed to be Gilliland crew chief Frank Kerr. “Yeah, it’s not the spotter, it’s the whole committee,” the spotter says. “The committee knows what I’ve been asking for,” Kerr says. “We’ve got the big dog and all of his cronies,” the spotter replies, a possible reference to Roger Penske, who watches NASCAR races
from the spotter stand. Kerr then says: “Travis knows what I’ve been asking for,” an apparent reference to Penske Racing competition director Travis Geisler. A short time later, Logano passed Gilliland on a restart and finished 22nd — one spot ahead of Gilliland and good enough for a berth in the Chase field. “Good job, good job, man,” the spotter says. “Hopefully we’ll get something out of that.” Trading favors on and off the track is common in NASCAR, but the series is already trying to rebound from the embarrassment of another team manipulating the outcome at Richmond. Earlier this week, NASCAR punished Michael Waltrip Racing and three of its drivers for shenanigans over the final seven laps and took the unprecedented step of pulling one of them, Martin Truex Jr., out of the Chase field. Truex, who took the news hard, according to good friend Newman, broke his silence Wednesday in a series of posts on Twitter. “I drove the hardest race of my life that Night & was unaware of any other cir-
cumstances other than needing to finish as high as I could to have a chance,” Truex tweeted. “This has been a very difficult situation for everyone involved. I hope we can all move on. I’m looking forward to Chicago.” The Chase begins on Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. It does so marred by the MWR controversy, and now the suggestion that Front Row hit up deep-pocketed Penske for compensation to get Logano into the 12-driver field while someone else was tanking the race. A review of Logano’s team radio reveals no communications indicating any discussions with Front Row. Logano is told only right before the final restart that he’s racing three cars for position, one of which is Gilliland. Penske and Front Row are both Ford teams and considered partners, and statistics analyzed by AP also show that after Logano passed him, Gilliland’s lap times dropped off by almost 1 second from the times he was running prior to the radio exchange. NASCAR said it was aware of the communications “and
Klinsmann faces biggest test By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio — Jurgen Klinsmann sat on a podium and smiled after guiding the United States into its seventh straight World Cup. Not to minimize the accomplishment, but the former German star player and coach will be judged not on reaching soccer’s elite tournament, but on how well the United States performs in Brazil next year. “The team’s success, especially in official competitions and difficult games in Europe has been very good,” U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said Wednesday, “but I think everyone understands that the World Cup is a different level.” Beating Mexico by the now traditional “dos a cero” score at Columbus Crew Stadium on Tuesday night, the Americans have now won four straight home qualifiers against El Tri by 2-0. Klinsmann helped Germany win the 1990 World Cup and the 1996 European Championship, then retired as a player two years later and moved to California with his American wife. He commuted from Orange County to Germany for a two-year stint as coach, leading his nation to the semifinals of the World Cup it hosted in 2006, then quit. Gulati recruited him later that year to succeed Bruce Arena but couldn’t reach an agreement on his authority. But after the U.S. played listlessly during the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Gulati ended Klinsmann’s five-year stretch as coach-in-waiting and hired him at a $2.5 million annual salary to replace Bob Bradley. Results have been impressive: 25 wins, nine losses and six ties, including the Americans’ first victory over four-time world champion Italy, their triumph at Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium and their first Gold Cup title since 2007. He’s already fifth on the U.S. career wins list, trailing only Arena (71), Bradley (43), Bora Milutinovic (30) and Steve Sampson (26). “The best thing he’s done is created lots of competition, and so every time you step on the field you have to perform or you’re not going to step on the field the next time,” star attacker Landon Donovan said. “It’s not in a pressure way, but it’s in an accountability way.” In his first weeks, he stripped players’ names off jersey backs and went to the old soccer method of changing numbers from game to game and assigning the starters Nos. 1-11 based on position. He wanted to encourage competition.
is looking into it, but has yet to see anything in full cont e x t t h a t re q u i re s a n y action.” Front Row spokesman Jeff Dennison said the team did not heed a Penske request to give Logano track position before the final restart. An email to a Penske spokesman was not immediately answered. All of this happened just before the MWR controversy. Ryan Newman was on his way to a victory that would have given him the final spot in the Chase field when Clint Bowyer spun, bringing out a caution. That set in motion a chain of events that cost Newman the win and the Chase berth. It also cost Jeff Gordon a Chase berth and put Truex and Logano into the final two spots. NASCAR, concluding that MWR had meddled with the outcome of the race, responded by putting Newman in the Chase field and bumping Truex. It also fined MWR $300,000 and suspended general manager Ty Norris indefinitely. Bowyer, Truex and Brian Vickers, all MWR teammates, were docked 50 points each, and their crew chiefs were placed on proba-
tion through the end of the year. Bowyer has denied the spin was deliberate. NASCAR could only prove one action — radio communication between Norris and Vickers in which a confused Vickers was told to pit as the field went green with three laps to go. The call was an effort to give Logano position on the track to pass Gordon in the standings and knock Gordon out of the Chase so that Truex could gain a Chase wild-card berth. It’s a tried-and-true practice in NASCAR, where teammates have long swapped position to allow a teammate — or even a driver from the same manufacturer — lead a lap to earn a needed bonus point, and other lower-profile moves occur throughout the season. On its face, what Vickers did Saturday didn’t raise too many eyebrows. But NASCAR President Mike Helton said “the preponderance of things that happened by Michael Waltrip Racing Saturday night, the most clear was the direction that (Vickers) was given and the confusion around it,” meaning Vickers’ laying

United States team manager Jurgen Klinsmann, right, talks with player Landon Donovan during a World Cup qualifying soccer match. “It’s a pretty good system. It’s the way it works in Europe, like nothing is yours forever,” goalkeeper Tim Howard said then. “I don’t think some of the younger guys quite get it.” Klinsmann’s methods seem more suited to the U.S. at times than to Germany, which has an entrenched soccer tradition and resistance to change. He was hired to coach Bayern Munich, one of his old clubs, in July 2008 but was fired the following April. Bayern President Uli Hoeness complained Klinsmann made the club purchase computers to develop PowerPoint presentations used to inform players of game strategy and compared him u n f a v o ra b l y w i t h Ju p p Heynckes, who led the team to this year’s Champions League title. “With Heynckes, we win games for 12.50 (euros), while we spent a lot of
money under Klinsmann and had little success,” Hoeness told the Donaukurier newspaper two years ago. Klinsmann hired Phoenix-based Athletes Performance, a company he worked with during his time with Germany and Bayern. The company develops training and nutritional plans for each player. And players’ time on the practice field lengthened considerably. “Maybe two years ago they wondered, ‘What is this all about? All this extra work, all this extra here, extra there.’ Now it’s just normal,” he said. “The players come in, they know there are double sessions waiting for them. The players know what we expect tactically. The players know that there’s another guy behind them in every position, that if he doesn’t give everything he has, the next one steps in and steals him his spot.”
Stronger. Faster. Better.
down for Logano was the smoking gun. That could mean that Gilliland doing the same for Logano is a punishable offense and that NASCAR opened up a Pandora’s box in singling out Vickers’ trip down pit road as the punishable offense in the MWR actions at Richmond. Kyle Busch, who goes into the Chase tied for second, believes teammates help one another on the track. A year ago at Richmond, Denny Hamlin pitted late to help Busch gain a position on the track. It wasn’t enough as Busch still lost out on the Chase to Gordon. “I say you do whatever you’ve got to do to get your t e a m i n ,” B u s c h s a i d Wednesday at Dover. “If you’re in that position and you have multi-team cars, that’s what they’re there for. Some people say I’m full of crap and you’re not supposed to manipulate the end of the race. Just let it plays out as it plays out. Let the best man win. But, I was in the same position last year. There were ways it could have been manipulated and I could have gotten myself in the Chase. But I didn’t do it. And I missed the Chase.”

Syria worries ease; stock up Investors decided the risk of a conflict with Syria is shrinking and sent stock prices higher. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 135.54 points, or 0.9 percent, to 15,326.60 on Wednesday. A big decline in Apple and other technology companies held back the Standard & Poor’s 500 index and the Nasdaq composite. The S&P 500 managed a small gain, its seventh in a row. U.S. and Russian diplomats are working on a plan that would lead to Syria giving up chemical weapons that President Barack Obama says were used against civilians. Obama said the U.S. will explore a possible diplomatic solution, though the U.S. military remains ready to attack. After a tough August, stocks have been rising in September. The S&P 500 is up 3.4 percent so far this month. Since September began, a U.S. strike on Syria has gone

AT&T and other businesses stumble over Sept. 11 tweets By BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer NEW YORK — AT&T and some other companies learned quickly on Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, that it’s sometimes best to stay out of the conversation. Even if everyone else is talking. Twitter was aflutter with American flags, bald eagles and photos of the New York City skyline on Wednesday, and the hashtag “neverforget” was one of the top trends on the microblogging site all day. But one post in particular, from AT&T Inc.’s official Twitter account, caught flak from bloggers and Twitter users. They criticized the company for seeming to use the tragedy to advertise phones to its 285,000 followers. The photo, which was also posted on Instagram and Facebook, showed a hand holding a smartphone against the New York skyline, appearing to be taking a photo of the twin lights that illuminate the city’s sky on the anniversar y of the attacks each year. After criticism that
ranged from “tacky” to profanities, Dallas-based AT&T removed the photo and said: “We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste. The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy.” Another photo generating a quite a flurry of Web outrage on Wednesday shows a paper sign with Marriott hotel logo resting next to a photo of muffins of indeterminate — but possibly blueberry — persuasion. The sign reads: “In remembrance of those we lost on 9/11 the hotel will provide complimentary coffee and mini muffins from 8:45 — 9:15 am.” Then, it was Marriott’s turn to apologize. “We are aware of the picture that was tweeted. It shows an offer that was made independently by the hotel and not the Marriott Hotels brand. As far as we know, it was limited to one property,” the hotel chain said in a statement. “While the hotel was making a sympathetic gesture to its guests in remembrance of 9/11, we apologize and understand
why some people may have misunderstood the intent of the offer. We are reminding our hotels to use discretion and be sensitive when remembering major events such as 9/11.” On Sept. 11, even free muffins can be offensive. But Marriott spokesman John Wolf offered some context to the sign. It wasn’t that the hotel decided to give out free pastries to commemorate the attacks. Rather, he said that the staff of this particular hotel — whose location he would not disclose — noticed last year that its guests started gathering in the lobby to watch the ceremony commemorating the attacks on television on the morning of Sept. 11. So, the hotel decided to put out free coffee and pastries to the guests. A Marriott hotel was among the buildings that collapsed in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001 after hijackers flew jetliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Other tweets, from Burger King to Macy’s and Walgreens, didn’t generate much anger, showing that the ire of the Internet is often fickle.
Verizon has huge bond sale NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon raised $49 billion on Wednesday in the largest corporate bond deal ever. The sale dwarfs the previous record, Apple’s sale of $17 billion in bonds in April, and proceeds from the sale on Wednesday will help Verizon buy the rest of its U.S. wireless business from partner Vodafone. The record sale shows that, despite the recent rise in yields for government bonds, investors are still looking to invest in debt — particularly if it involves quality companies such as Verizon.
Verizon’s plans to pay $130 billion for Vodafone’s 45 percent stake in Verizon Wireless, and is expected to rank as the secondlargest deal when completed. Along with the money from its bond sale, Verizon will use cash and stock to pay for the buyout. Verizon’s bond sale was huge in every way: The offering is nearly triple Apple’s sale. The debt will come due at eight different times, from three to 30 years. Demand for the debt was high, with investors placing more than $100 billion in orders for Verizon’s offering.
Blixseth wants $3.3M in fees from Mont. tax case BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Montana revenue authorities are trying to block former billionaire Tim Blixseth from collecting $3.3 million in attorney fees he’s claiming from the state’s frustrated efforts to force him into bankruptcy. Officials said Wednesday that Blixseth
should be barred from pursuing the fees while they appeal a July ruling that dismissed the forced bankruptcy case. The state has alleged the founder of Montana’s ultra-exclusive Yellowstone Club owes $57 million in back taxes. If Blixseth goes into bankruptcy and the
tax claim holds up, he could be forced to liquidate his assets. Blixseth has twice gotten the case dismissed by a now-retired federal judge. That allowed him to seek attorney fees against the plaintiffs in the case under federal bankruptcy law.
