Floral Depot to open May 3rd By Lavonne Haugen For the Record-Herald


hether she is ready or not, Barb Nelsen has chosen May 3 as her opening date at the new Floral Depot, located in the former Cando Bakery building on Main Street in Cando. Barb and her husband Duane are returning to the area after leaving in 2003 following 30 years of farming in the Egeland area. With aging machinery and more sloughs than farmland to plant each spring, the couple decided to pull up their roots and relocate to property they owned in southwestern South Dakota. Barb, who is not one to sit idle for long, worked in a floral shop in South Dakota, but found herself with many ideas to make the place run better. Her husband, who also seems happier when he is working on a project, suggested she open her own floral shop. Following a brief search, the couple decided on Edgemont, SD, as the location for the new shop. Edgemont, with a population of 600 residents, had not had a flower show in town for many years. With a hospital, mortuary and nursing home, the couple found their niche and flourished. Fast forward several years. The couple, with deep family ties in north central North Dakota, started wondering if it was maybe time to return home. Both have elderly parents in the area and Duane, who returned each spring for planting and

each fall for harvest, made note of the fact that there was no longer a flower shop in town for the residents of Cando and the surrounding area. The couple visited Cando and made note of a possible building for a new shop. They decided to put their shop in Edgemont on the market and see what happened. The shop sold in days and the couple was on their way to their next adventure. They quickly packed up the shop in Edgemont, hoping to make the transition to the Cando area a fast one. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and every trip north was derailed by

snowstorms or ice. The Nelsen’s purchased the bakery building and went to work along with family members who were willing to lend a hand. They were hoping for a minor remodel, but the job became much bigger as they dug deeper. The Nelsen’s finally ended up gutting the entire front of the building, putting up new walls and ceiling as well as laying new flooring throughout the building. The front of the building is for display purposes and the back of the building will be storage, office space, and work space. Barb Nelsen is the first to admit she doesn’t feel quite ready to open her doors. She has yet to find many rolls of ribbon she knows are hiding from her, but the constant stream of phone calls tells her that she will be busy

once the doors open. With half the floor space that she used to occupy, Barb is limiting what she keeps for display at this time. She will have fresh cut flowers, green plants, silk flowers, balloons, 99 cent cards, candles and various unique planters for sale. With the prom season already nearing its end in the area, she looks to add tux rentals to her store next spring. Once she gets a feel for the community and what they would like to see, she will add to her inventory to meet the needs of the community. At this time, Barb will be the lone employee at her store. She will call on Duane’s help during busy delivery seasons, and has someone to help with arrangements should the need arise. The couple is making their home in Cando at this time.

Towner County Medical Center seeks input from area residents about community’s health needs


ando – In an effort to gauge the overall health needs of the community, Towner County Medical Center (TCMC) will survey area residents for several weeks beginning in late April. Results of the survey will provide guidance to TCMC on better ways to address health care needs. The survey is part of a community health needs assessment initiated by TCMC. TCMC is receiving assistance in conducting the assessment from the Center for Rural Health at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences. TCMC strongly encourages all area residents to participate in the survey. Residents may access an interactive, online version of the survey at www. . All survey responses are anonymous, and there is no way to track responses back

to individuals. Individual survey responses are accessible only to the Center for Rural Health to help ensure anonymity. Overall results will be reported in aggregate form and anonymously. The survey will allow local providers to learn of the community’s awareness of local health care services being provided, hear suggestions and help identify any gaps in services, learn about community health and other concerns, and determine preferences for using local health care versus traveling to other facilities. In addition to specific questions, the survey also seeks general, open-ended input from residents about the community’s health needs and the delivery of local health care. Completing the survey takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The survey will be open until May 24.

“The feedback from this survey will help hospital leadership and our board of directors, understand what services are important to the community and where TCMC should focus our efforts in the future.” Ivan Mitchell, CEO of TCMC. A periodic community needs assessment is one of the new requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The new regulations require non-profit hospitals such as Towner County Medical Center to assess the community’s health needs periodically. The cost of the survey is covered by the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Grant Program, a project of the Center for Rural Health. The Flex Program is a state-based partnership that works with and assists all rural hospitals to stabilize and sustain their local health care infrastructure.

Bearcat Track Team Finds Dry Meet By Lavonne Haugen For the Record-Herald


he North Star track team was finally able to find a meet that allowed their athletes to compete instead of conditioning, many days in the school hallways. The Bearcats traveled to

Hazen with eight athletes on Saturday, April 27. Due to the lack of meets for all North Dakota teams, 34 teams were competing which presented stiff competition for the Bearcats. Peyton Halverson was the lone point scorer for North Star, placing 5th in the 800m run with a time of 2:37.39.

Head coach, Megan Tompkins was pleased with the performance of her team in this first meet of the season stating, “Considering our training facilities and the unforgiving weather we’ve dealt with for practicing, our athletes performed very well. Many of the events we competed in had 50 or more competitors. I was proud of all of them.”

Dalrymple Signs Bill To Strengthen Law Against Drunk Driving Bill Strengthens Penalties, Enhances Education and Court Monitoring to Reduce Recidivism


ISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Jack Dalrymple today signed House Bill 1302 to strengthen North Dakota law against drunk driving and enhance traffic safety across the state. Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, other law enforcement officers, legislators and family members who have lost loved ones to drunk drivers attended the bill signing in support of the new law’s passage. “This legislation carries a clear message that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a very serious offense and will not be tolerated,” Dalrymple said. “The new law includes tougher penalties and many offenders will be required to participate in an intensive program to monitor and enforce sobriety.

“This new law is enforceable, it is a stronger deterrent and it will help save lives,” Dalrymple said. Supporters of the tougher DUI legislation gathered around Dalrymple in the Capitol’s Memorial Hall to watch the governor sign the bill into law. Joining Dalrymple for the bill signing were Tom and Arlene Deutscher and Lynn and Donna Mickelson, the parents of Aaron and Allison Deutscher and the grandparents of Brielle Deutscher who were killed by a drunken driver July 6, 2012. Juan Ruiz and Sandy Hernandez who lost their two young boys, Cyris and Alaries, to a drunk driver on July 8, 2012, also attended the bill signing. Others who attended included the bill’s prime sponsor, Rep. Kim

Koppelman, other legislators, North Dakota Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. James Prochniak, and state Department of Transportation Interim Director Grant Levi. “No longer will drunk drivers be able to refuse to submit to an alcohol test, as nearly one in five do, and thereby deprive the courts of crucial proof of DUI,” Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said. “If there is probable cause to believe a person is driving under the influence and they try to hide behind a refusal to submit to a test, they will be subject to the same punishment as if they were convicted of the DUI.” North Dakota’s strengthened DUI law will take effect Aug. 1. “We’ve sent a powerful message,

supported by so many,” Koppleman said. “This marks the culmination of a long, collaborative effort involving law enforcement officials, prosecutors, defense attorneys, the Governor, the Attorney General, corrections officials and the families of victims of drunk driving.” Key provisions of the new law include: · A new charge of aggravated Driving Under the Influence (DUI) for first-time offenders whose blood-alcohol content (BAC) is higher than 0.16. · Mandatory enrollment in the 24/7 Sobriety Program for anyone convicted of two or more DUI offenses. The program requires offenders submit to mandatory breath tests or the use

of remote alcohol monitors. · Significant increases in mandatory jail sentences for repeat offenders. First-time offenders with BAC higher than 0.16 must serve at least two days in jail or perform 10 hours of community service per day of jail time sentenced. First-time offenders currently do not face any mandatory sentence of jail or community service. · Creating a Class A felony offense for a driver, while in violation of the DUI law, to cause the death of another person. The charge of criminal vehicular homicide carries a mandatory three-year prison sentence and a mandatory 10-year prison sentence if the offender was previously convicted of DUI or reckless driving. The maximum prison sentence

is 20 years. Currently, the offense may be charged as a Class B felony offense under the state’s manslaughter statute or a Class C felony under the state’s negligent homicide statute, both of which carry shorter maximum sentences. · Creating a Class C felony offense for a driver who, while in violation of the DUI law, causes serious injures another person. The charge of criminal vehicular injury carries a mandatory prison sentence of one year and a mandatory two-year sentence if the offender was previously convicted of DUI or reckless driving. · Providing $360,000 to support statewide education outreach regarding the dangers involved in drinking and driving.

April Gas Report: Lowest Springtime Gas Prices in Three Years  The average price for a gallon for regular unleaded gas in North Dakota is currently $3.57, down 10 cents in the past month and 21 cents lower then one year ago.  North Dakota metro averages are: Bismarck, $3,65; Fargo, 3.42; and Grand Forks, $3.46.  Gas prices nationally averaged $3.55 per gallon in April, the least expensive average for the month since 2010. Gas prices dropped about 13 cents per gallon in April (3.5 percent), which was the largest percentage decline for the month in ten years. In comparison, gas prices in 2012 averaged $3.89 for the month, while the average price in April 2011 was $3.79 per gallon.  Gas prices have declined this spring because of lower oil costs, ample refinery production and continued weak demand, according to Gene LaDoucer, AAA North Dakota spokesman. “Gas prices have fallen faster and earlier than ever before for this time of year, providing motorists with timely savings in fuel costs.”  The national average price of gas for April 30, 2013, is $3.51 per gallon, which is the fourth highest on record for this day. The national average a year ago was $3.82 per gallon, while the average on this day in 2011 was $3.93 per gallon and in 2008 it was $3.62 per gallon.  AAA has no record of gas prices previously peaking in February, yet the highest average of the year so far is $3.79 per gallon on Feb. 27. Since that time, the average price nationally has dropped 50 out of 62 days for a total of 28 cents per gallon. The peak price in 2012 was $3.94 per gallon on April 5 and 6, while the peak in 2011 was $3.98 on May 5.  West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil prices dropped below $87 per barrel in mid-April, which was the lowest closing price since Decem-

ber. The price of WTI began the month at more than $97 per barrel and closed April 29 at $94.50 per barrel. Oil and commodity prices dropped earlier in the month as a result of expectations of yet another “spring swoon” for the economy.  Half of U.S. adults consider gas prices to be “too high” when it reaches $3.44 per gallon, according to a new consumer index developed by AAA. Forty-six percent of adults believe gas is too high when it reaches $3.00 per gallon; 61 percent believe it is too high when it reaches $3.50 per gallon; and 90 percent believe gas is too high when it reaches $4.00 per gallon. Sixty-two percent of Americans are offsetting high gas prices by changing their driving habits or lifestyle.  Over the next few weeks average prices nationally could remain flat or even rise slightly as some maintenance and production issues continue. Prices in the Great Lakes region, in particular, could rise as a result of both scheduled and unscheduled refinery maintenance. Gas stations in many parts of the country also must begin selling more expensive summer-blend gasoline by June 1 in order to meet federal air quality standards.  Gas prices could drop to $3.20 to $3.40 per gallon by mid-summer if current trends continue in regards to oil prices, motorist demand and refinery production. Gas prices in recent years have declined in early summer after reaching a springtime peak as refineries ramp up gasoline production in anticipation of the summer driving season.

Growers Reminded of Later Final Planting Dates for Canola


iven the late start to planting in 2013, growers are reminded that the Final Planting Dates (FPD’s) for canola were changed last year at the request of the Northern Canola Growers Association. The NCGA conducted date of plant-

ing studies for canola for the last three years and submitted this data to crop insurance officials to establish a later Final Planting Date (FPD) for canola in all regions of North Dakota. As a result of the studies and the data provided, RMA added five days to the cano-

la Final Planting Date in North Dakota and Minnesota. In addition, Benson, Pierce and Burke Counties were added to a different region in the state, resulting in a 15-day change to the Final Planting Date for those three counties. Data gathered from studies funded

by the canola growers was particularly compelling for northeast North Dakota, where yields for canola held up into mid-June plantings. See the attached chart for the Final Planting Dates for canola for your region.

Animal Humane Treatment Bill Passes Bismarck, N.D.– SB 2211, the animal humane treatment bill for North Dakota, passed in the 63rd Legislative Assembly today and is headed to the Governor’s office for his signature.


ccording to North Dakota Farmers Union (NDFU) President Woody Barth, “We are very pleased that SB 2211 was approved. North Dakota Farmers Union has been a key player in getting this bill passed. Our organization worked with the coalition to make sure well written legislation would go after the bad actors who intentionally harm animals while making sure to protect agriculture.” NDFU worked from the beginning as part of the North Dakotans for Responsible Animal Care co-

alition to protect animals and the good stewards who care for them. It also sought to clarify the processes and roles of folks who address animal mistreatment. “We are pleased that the legislature has passed a bill that does just that,” added NDFU General Counsel and Director of Government Relations Kristi Schlosser Carlson, “We appreciate the legislature’s work and passage of SB 2211. NDFU continues to believe the legislative process was the appropriate path to allow for discussion and improvement of the current animal humane treatment statute, and we thank the legislature for fostering that discussion. NDFU stood hand in hand with partners from the very beginning through today’s passage of the bill.” During a special press conference this morning, Senator Tim Flakoll, the bill’s prime sponsor, Commissioner Doug Goehring and Representative Rust commended North Dakotans for Responsible Animal Care and their effort, as an example of how using a comprehensive, balanced approach could deliver good legislation.




Worship Wednesday singers from Lutheran Church.

TCMC CEO Ivan Mitchell visited at Prairie View.



ANICE FORD AND SALLY LARSON, office personnel from American Bank in Cando, presented a program on how to avoid financial exploitation, identity theft, and how to detect and avoid scams. Scammers may be very devious and turn on the charm in hopes of gaining your trust.  This could be  not only strangers but family members.  They advised us to never fill out and sign checks ahead of time and to never sign

a document you don’t understand. If you have questions or concerns contact your bank for advice.  Power of Attorney is advised and using a personal check or credit card is safer because it leaves a “paper trail”.  Use direct deposit when possible and never lend money on an IOU. Telemarketers have become notorious scammers.  Never give any private information such as Social Security numbers or financial information

over the phone. Janice and Sally emphasized that banks never call to ask for personal information.  They warned that if you receive a check in the mail from an unknown source and are asked to return a portion of the amount (known as money laundering) to discard that check immediately and contact law enforcement . Janice and Sally also gave us pertinent information on how to get off mailing lists, how long to keep personal papers, credit card statements, etc. 

Again if you have any questions to call or stop in at the bank for assistance. Sally and Janice joined us for the monthly birthday party honoring Louise Hartl and Dorothy Rader.  They treated us with candy coated pretzels.  Thank you to the TCMC dietary department for the wonderful dessert.  IVAN MITCHELL, TCMC CEO, walked over to meet us.  He told us that he was born in California but came here from Pine Bluff, Arkansas.  His goal at TCMC is to make caring for patients as efficient as possible.  They

are in the process of moving the Physical Therapy department, looking for a more convenient way to perform CT scans, and would like to make kidney dialysis more convenient for patients. Another doctor or PA would be helpful, as well. Mr. Mitchell and his wife have 5 children, who are all looking forward to living in a rural community and the many opportunities it offers.  Welcome to

Cando! CANDO LUTHERAN WORSHIP WEDNESDAY CHILDREN and their teachers arrived via school bus to sing for us. There was a lot of activity with 39 children singing, clapping, and jumping as they performed action songs.  They sang several songs and closed with “Jesus Loves Me”. NORTH STAR 1ST GRADERS AND THEIR TEACHER MRS. ELSPERGER didn’t have to climb over snowbanks to get here this time!  They are learning about plant life and have planted bean seeds in school.  They performed a skit “Waking Up” showing the process by which seeds grow.  They also had a humorous story about folks who live in Backward Time and sleep under the bed!  They broke into small groups and read to the Prairie View folks before walking back to school. NORTH STAR 1ST GRADERS AND THEIR TEACHER MRS. KOMROSKY came the following week and read to us.  Each of the Prairie View folks enjoyed listening to 2 students read. THANK YOU to the ladies of Cando Christian Fellowship Church for delivering treats and stopping by to visit.  Thanks also to Pastor Bonnie and Pastor Craig for their welcome visits and conversation.

Janice and Sally shown with Dorothy and Louise.

Towner County Living News flow through the deep breathing. Statistics show that half of women who reach the age of 90 will have suffered a hip fracture from a fall. A person over the age of 90, that has a fall resulting in a hip fracture, has a mortality rate of 30% in 6 months. We are hoping to see residents having an easier time with activities like walking, bending, eating and dressing. This group of residents will meet 3x’s a week. We are excited to see the program take shape. So far it has been a fun relaxing way to exercise with staff and guests watching through the door and wishing they could join us.

Upcoming Events:


hanks to Pastor Bonnie Weaver for leading Women’s Circle and Communion service this past week. On April 30th the Living Center had a guest speaker. Tom Gibson was sponsored by the North Dakota Soil Conservation District. Tom also visited the Northstar School in the afternoon. Tom portrayed the character of Pete Bogg, with his “Amazing Water Machine”. “Pete” discussed different uses for water. We use it for drinking, swimming, fishing, farming, putting out fires, wash-

ing….the list goes on. Where does this water come from? Pete showed a glass of clean water. Water is in the rivers and passes by homesteads, farms, into the city, etc. Along the way it picks up various pollutants, whether it’s maneuver from a cattle farms, oil that gets put down the sewer drain, etc. This all eventually goes into the river. Along each route this water took, Pete added a different food coloring to the clean glass of water. By the time this water “got back to the river” the water was very dirty looking – not good enough to drink. This water was put into

the “Amazing Water Machine”. Here the water is boiled, turns into steam, condenses, and comes out into a glass as “clean water.” This machine acts as a water distiller. This process represents the sun shining on the lake. It gives the water energy, evaporates, travels around the world and comes down as “clean” rain. The sun acts as a natural distiller. However, the rain goes back into the dirty water where wildlife and humans swim and drink this water. We all have to do our part to keep the water clean. Don’t waste water and don’t dirty the water. A big thanks to the North Dakota Soil Conservation District for hosting Tom Gibson, of Bottineau. And thanks to Tom. We enjoyed your presentation. Towner County Living Center started a Tai Chi program. This program has become part of our Falls Reduction Program. Through this technique, the body is in constant motion with gentle physical exercise and stretches, in a slow graceful manner, set to relaxing nature music. The resident can sit or stand. There are many benefits of Tai Chi: reduce high blood pressure, stress relief, a healthier heart, tone and in-

crease muscle strength, bone strength for Osteoporosis, improve posture, improve breathing problems, strengthen the immunity system, improve coordination and balance (reducing the rate of falls), effective in preventing and man-

aging diabetes, managing symptoms of Parkinson’s, prevention of strokes and post stroke patients through cardiovascular improvements. Our main goal is to improve balance and increase trunk strength, along with increasing oxygen

PRESIDENT USDA to Increase APPROVES Home Loan Limit to LIMITED Reflect Increasing EMERGENCY Home Values in North DECLARATION B Dakota Heitkamp committed to addressing the state’s housing crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced today that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will increase its limit for home loans in every North Dakota county from $179,000 to $240,000. Heitkamp, a member of the Senate committee that oversees housing policy, is working tirelessly to find solutions to North Dakota’s housing crisis.


ur state has serious housing issues and we need concrete steps like this to address them,” said Heitkamp. “When I traveled around North Dakota to listen to housing concerns, financing difficulties were continually discussed. I applaud USDA for making this change, and look forward to continuing my work with local, state and federal officials to address housing challenges in our state.” “The announcement today reflects the realities of North Dakota’s booming economy and the high val-

uations of homes,” said USDA Rural Development State Director Jasper Schneider. “Senator Heitkamp’s recent housing meetings underscored the need for more solutions and flexibility in federal financing programs.” Last month, Heitkamp held a series of discussions around North Dakota focused on finding solutions to the state’s housing crisis. Heitkamp listened to housing officials in Dickinson, Bismarck, Minot, Grand Forks, Williston, Valley City, and Fargo. Heitkamp is a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, which has jurisdiction over housing issues. She is also the Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Subcommittee on Jobs, Rural Economic Growth and Energy Innovation, which has jurisdiction over USDA Rural Development. Heitkamp is using her committee positions to advocate for the unique housing needs in rural areas like North Dakota.


BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Jack Dalrymple today joined public and military officials, families and friends in honoring more than 200 members of the North Dakota National Guard’s (NDNG) 1st Battalion, 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment as they prepare to deploy on a yearlong mission to Washington, D.C. in support of Operation Noble Eagle. Dalrymple addressed the Guardsmen and their families during a send-off ceremony at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.


ur country knows it can turn to North Dakota for the nation’s most capable soldiers and the 1-188th will carry on our Guard’s honored tradition of distinguished military ser-

vice throughout the unit’s deployment to protect our nation’s capital,” Dalrymple said. “While it’s difficult for these soldiers to say goodbye to their families and friends, we know they are about to perform a noble mission in defense of our nation. We are proud of these Guardsmen and grateful to them and their families for their willingness to serve on our behalf.” While deployed, the 1-188th will collaborate with other Department of Defense agencies as part of the integrated air defense system designed to protect the airspace around the National Capital Region. This is the 1-188th’s 10th deployment since 2004, making it the most-deployed unit in the NDNG. The unit is headquartered in Grand Forks with detachments in Bismarck and Fargo.

ISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Jack Dalrymple and the state’s Congressional Delegation received word late today that President Obama has approved a limited emergency declaration to assist in flood-fighting efforts along the Red River. The declaration makes available federal resources and financial assistance to help local jurisdictions within Cass, Grand Forks, Pembina, Richland, Traill and Walsh counties recover costs associated with severe flooding. “We’re pleased that the president has approved our request so that federal resources will be available to assist in flood-fighting efforts along the Red River,” Dalrymple said. “We will continue to press the Federal Emergency Management Agency to expand the declaration to include other counties threatened by major flooding.” Dalrymple’s request for a presidential emergency declaration included Barnes, Benson, Bottineau, Cass, Grand Forks, McHenry, Nelson, Pembina, Ramsey, Ransom, Richland, Towner, Traill and Walsh counties, as well as the Spirit Lake Reservation. The potential for significant river, tributary and overland flooding also exits in other counties in the Devils Lake Basin as well as in the Souris, Sheyenne, James and Pembina river basins. Other counties and Tribal Nations may be included as conditions change. “With the threat of flooding across North Dakota again this year, it’s important that we have a declaration in place to make sure all of the necessary resources are available to mount a successful flood fight,” said Hoeven who along with the state’s congressional delegation wrote a letter to the president in support for the governor’s request. “We need to ensure at every level of government that we are able to meet the challenges

of protecting our people and preventing a larger disaster.” Dalrymple sent a letter to President Obama on Tuesday, April 23, requesting the emergency declaration due to weather conditions and forecasts that show strong potential for severe spring flooding along the Red River, Sheyenne River, Souris River, Devils Lake Basin and other areas of the state. “I am pleased the Administration has heeded our concerns in North Dakota, and provided proactive federal assistance for the flood season,” Sen. Heidi Heitkamp said. “This funding is important to our communities as we enter into a season of unpredictable spring flooding and we will be able to better prepare for these emergencies.” “It is good to see this request moving forward, and I remain hopeful the flood impact will be reduced by the good preparation done by our residents and city officials,” Congressman Kevin Cramer said. Factors contributing to major flood threats include the latest snowmelt on record, a heavy snowpack with water content at 200 percent of the historic norm, excessive precipitation, saturated soils and a lack of available surface storage. On March 29, Dalrymple issued a state emergency declaration for counties and Tribal Nations that face a 50 percent chance of reaching or exceeding moderate flood stage. In issuing the state flood emergency, Dalrymple cited heavy snowpack, saturated topsoil conditions and full surface storage in sloughs, ponds and drainage systems in areas throughout the state. The governor’s state emergency declaration activated the State Emergency Operations Plan which requires that state officials and agencies and the North Dakota National Guard prepare to provide timely flood response services.

US Department of Labor’s OSHA cites First Choice Energy after oil field worker killed at Stanley, ND, job site


TANLEY, N.D. - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited First Choice Energy of Minot with nine serious safety violations for exposing workers to unsafe conditions at an oil field drilling and fluid disposal operation in Stanley. The inspection was prompted after a worker was killed after being caught in the agitator of an oil field vacuum truck storage tank on March 14. “First Choice Energy failed to develop and implement the most basic of confined space and energy control safety protocols,” said Eric Brooks, OSHA’s area director in Bismarck. “Companies have a responsibility to recognize—and train their workers to recognize—hazards unique to their job sites in addition to protecting workers from such hazards.” Five of the nine citations involve violations of OSHA’s confined space requirements, including lack of atmo-

spheric testing, permitting, signs and emergency response procedures. Other citations involve not properly protecting workers from open pit fall hazards, lack of energy control and lockout/tagout procedures and equipment, failing to conduct annual inspections of energy control procedures and to train workers on such procedures. A serious violation occurs when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined space hazards are addressed in specific standards. For more information see, OSHA has proposed penalties of $33,000.

First Choice Energy has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. To ask questions, obtain compliance assistance, file a complaint, or report workplace hospitalizations, fatalities or situations posing imminent danger to workers, the public should call OSHA’s toll-free hotline at 800-321OSHA (6742) or the agency’s Bismarck Area Office at 701-250-4521. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance. For more information, visit

North Star/Leeds baseball finally underway By Lavonne Haugen

For the Record-Herald


he North Star/Leeds Bearcats traveled to Harvey to take on Rolette/Wolford Comets in their first Region 5 game of the season on Monday, April 29. Any open field is fair game for region teams as they struggle to find places to get in their games before the start of playoffs. Brooks Larson took the mound for the Bearcats as they started the game in a light rain. The two teams managed to get in four innings of play, which qual-

ified as a full game, before wet conditions and a sloppy field forced the coaches to call the game. The Bearcats finished with a 4-1 victory with Larson on the mound all four innings, pitching 7 strike outs. The Bearcats jumped out to an early 2-1 lead in the first inning and scored one in the third and one in the fourth to put away the Comets. Larson was 1 for 1 with 1 RBI, Christian Kvilvang was 1 for 2 with one run scored and one stolen base, Jake Hagler was 1 for 3 with one stolen base and Jayden Komrosky finished 1 for 2 for the Bearcats. Head coach, Corey Hagler, while happy to get the game in, was frustrat-

ed with the wet conditions. “We finally got outside to play some ball, but the minute we take the field it started to rain and didn’t quit.” Coach Hagler was pleased with the first win of the season, saying, “We did get in 4 innings which is enough for an official game. I thought we played really well for practicing in the gym for a month. Brooks Larson pitched an awesome game striking out 7 and not giving up an earned run. We had 4 hits and got the base runners when we needed them. Overall it was a very good first outing. It’s going be a short season so we are going have to be at our best every outing.”

The North Star baseball team took a break from practicing indoors to break up the snow banks around the baseball field. Despite having a scrimmage on the field last Saturday, the field is no longer useable due to the entire outfield flooding with the warmer temps.

2014 Fishing, Hunting and Boat Registration Fees Increases in North Dakota hunting, fishing and boat registration fees recently passed by the state legislature will not take effect until 2014.


erry Steinwand, director of the State Game and Fish Department, said the current three-year boat registration cycle runs through December, and 2013-14 hunting and fishing licenses are in effect through next March. Therefore, registration fees for boat owners will go up Jan. 1, 2014, while hunters and anglers will see the license increase in April, 2014. “This is the first time in many years we’ve seen such a wide range of license fee increases,” Steinwand said. “State legislators, hunters and anglers voiced overwhelming support during committee hearings and when voted on the floor. We

heard that same type of support at statewide advisory board meetings last fall.” Steinwand said the main issue the legislature deliberated was how much of an increase was appropriate. “There were some avid hunters and anglers in the state who wanted to see a substantial increase in prices to support habitat, enforcement, fisheries and access, but it was important that the increases didn’t price anyone out of the outdoors experience,” he added. “The feedback we’ve been getting from hunters and anglers is that this legislation strikes the right balance.” Despite these increases, Stein-

wand said North Dakota hunting and fishing licenses are still less expensive than equivalent licenses in surrounding states. Senate Bill 2231 passed the house by a vote of 77-15 and the senate 396. Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the cost to license a motorboat under 16 feet in length, and all canoes, will increase from $12 to $18; motorboats from 16 feet to less than 20 feet in length from $24 to $36; and motorboats at least 20 feet in length from $33 to $45. Effective April 1, 2014:  resident small game hunting license will increase from $6 to $10  nonresident small game hunting license from $85 to $100  resident big game hunting license from $20 to $30 (youth big game license remains at $10)  nonresident big game hunting li-

House Bill 1264, in part, charges a fee of $5 for residents and $50 for nonresidents to hunt statewide during the early Canada goose season. These dates no longer count against the 14-day regular season nonresident waterfowl license. This law is in effect for the 2013 hunting season. Effective April 1, 2014, House Bill 1434 allows a North Dakota veteran with a 50 percent service-related disability to buy a fishing license for $5.

Mother’s Day Minus Mom


other’s Day is supposed to be a happy occasion wherein individuals honor their mothers and other special women with gifts and tokens of appreciation. But for the men and women who have lost their mothers, this holiday can be everything from bittersweet to painful. Honoring Mom takes on new meaning. Any holiday can be particularly difficult to enjoy when a loved one passes away. However, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day -- dates on the calendar specific to a special person in one’s life -- can be even more trying, especially if the loss is still fresh. Individuals who have lost their mothers may experience Mother’s Day in myriad ways. Some may choose to ignore the day, preferring to keep busy and not acknowledge that Mother’s Day is taking place. Others may pour over memories of their mother, looking at old photos or videos. Some may make a trip to a cemetery or special place of reflection. Certain people prefer to be alone, while others want to be in the comfort of a group.

The way the holiday is spent is entirely up to the person and the way he or she feels the most comfortable. In fact, it can be downright challenging to wade through the rows of greeting cards at every store and watch scores of commercials on television reminding one not to forget to pick up something special for one’s mother. If a person is looking for a way to celebrate Mom after she has passed on, here are a few ideas. * Remember a good time had with Mom and then capture those happy feelings. * Donate to a charity or do something special that Mom would have appreciated. * Plant a tree or plant in her honor in the yard. * Watch a video or look through pictures of Mom and remember all of the good times had together. * If you are a mother, relish in the day with the kids and other family. Your Mom would want you to. * Wear a white carnation to symbolize that you have lost your mother. * Gather together with siblings or friends who have lost their mothers and spend the day together.

Whooping Crane Migration

hooping cranes are in the midst of their spring migration and sightings will increase as they make their way through North Dakota over the next several weeks. Anyone seeing these birds as they move through the state is asked to report sightings so the birds can be tracked. Whoopers stand about five feet tall and have a wingspan of about seven feet from tip to tip. They are bright white with black wing tips, which are visible only when the wings are outspread. In flight they extend their long necks straight forward, while their long, slender legs extend out behind the tail. Whooping cranes typically migrate singly, or in groups of 2-3 birds, and may be associated with sandhill cranes. Other white birds such as snow geese, swans and egrets are often mistaken for whooping cranes. The most common misidentification is pelicans, because their wingspan is similar and

Beautiful lawn vs. faithful pet Putting a stop to lawncare woes


ver time a pet who is routinely using a patch of grass as his personal potty will damage that stretch of lawn. The behavior of canines plus the chemical components of the urine contribute to the brown, dead patches synonymous with dog waste. But there are ways to mitigate the problem. Dog urine and feces can often be a frustrating problem, even to pet-lovers. The war between wanting a pristine lawn and a healthy pet can drive pet owners to investigate ways to prevent or reduce marring of the lawn. Do those urban legends like tomato juice or baking soda work? In most cases, no. However, there are ways to reduce the amount of lawn damage with other methods. Dog waste chemistry Understanding why urine and feces can affect the lawn requires understanding the makeup of these waste products. The fundamental problem involves the concentration of nitrogen in the solid and liquid waste. Primarily in dogs, the kidneys serve to remove excess nitrogen from the dog’s high-protein, meat-based diet. In small concentrations, nitrogen applied to a lawn can actually serve as a fertilizer --helping the lawn to be green and bright. But it’s the higher concentrations that do the most damage. These essentially burn out the grass and cause brown, bare patches that can be rather unsightly. A few decades ago, Dr. A.W. Allard, a Colorado veterinarian, examined numerous variations in dog urine and the effects on several common lawn grasses. He found fescue to be the most nitrogen-resistant. Yet, even that grass has it’s saturation point and can brown. Who is the biggest offender? Dog owners sometimes think that female dogs have different urine chemistry because they tend to do the most damage to the lawn.

they tuck their pouch in flight, leaving a silhouette similar to a crane when viewed from below. Anyone sighting whoopers should not disturb them, but record the date, time, location, and the birds’ activity. Observers should also look closely for and report colored bands which may occur on one or both legs. Whooping cranes have been marked with colored leg bands to help determine their identity. Whooping crane sightings should be reported to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office at Lostwood, (701) 848-2466, or Long Lake, (701) 387-4397, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s main office in Bismarck at (701) 328-6300, or to local game wardens across the state. Reports help biologists locate important whooping crane habitat areas, monitor marked birds, determine survival and population numbers, and identify times and migration routes.
