Ice fishing an outdoor thrill all winter BY SARA SPAULDING WILLISTON HERALD

It’s never too cold to fish in North Dakota. Ice fishing is one of the most popular winter sports in northwestern North Dakota, but there are several things to be aware of if you are new to the experience. “Basically they have to know the thickness,� said Nancy Boldt, boat and water safety coordinator for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Ice fishers should use an ice chisel or auger to test the thickness of the ice before venturing onto it. “If it’s two inches or less, they need to stay off,� said Boldt. A person can go on the ice if it is four inches thick and a clear bluish tinge.

FISHING: As long as ice is thick enough, it is fun for months FROM PAGE 4

For a pickup, 12 to 15 inches of clear ice is needed. “They need to pay attention to the color of the ice,” said Boldt. Ice with snow frozen in it as not as sturdy as clear ice. In addition, ice fishers should stay away from vegetation and cracks. On Lake Sakakawea, a popular ice fishing destination just east of Williston, it is important to be extra careful since the lake is actually a river. “Some places you have to have a lot of respect for because there’s moving water under there,” said Boldt. For those new to the activity, be sure to stop by a local bait shop for tips before heading out onto the ice.

Local attractions open all winter BY KATHLEEN J. BRYAN WILLISTON HERALD

Two area visitor attractions remain open and ready to show off even in the colder months. For Fort Buford State Historic Site and the MissouriYellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center, “It’s business as usual,” said Site Supervisor Steve Reidburn. The government shutdown in fall 2013 left more than 800,000 federal workers jobless, shuttered programs and closed national parks and monuments from Yellowstone and Glacier to the Statue of Liberty. However, sites such as Fort Buford and the MYCIC are owned and managed by the State Historical Society of North Dakota and receive funding for operations from state funds, according to Historic Sites Manager Diane

Rogness, and are therefore open to the public. Though cold, wintry weather will occur, the occasional nice day provides an opportunity to travel back in time and learn about the historical significance of these sites. Fort Buford, about 22 miles southwest of Williston, was built in 1866 near the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers and became an important supply depot for military field operations in the region. One of the biggest and one of the longest-lasting forts in the upper Great Plains, it was active until 1895, Reidburn said. It is where the Hunkpapa Sioux leader, Sitting Bull, surrendered in 1881, five years after he defeated Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The fort was also the site

Are you feeling gloomy that you might be stuck inside during a blizzard? Well, the Williston Convention & Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau has big plans for you. At Spring Lake Park beginning after Thanksgiving and continuing to the end of the year, the Lake Park Holiday Light Drive will illuminate the cold winter nights. Traditionally, the Lake Park Holiday Light Drive features lighted displays with a handful of animated ones, as well as events such as carriage rides, tree-decorating, movie nights, photos with Santa Claus, storytelling with Mrs. Claus and more. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event featured over 40 displays, four animated to music and 16 decorated trees. Taking place throughout Spring Lake Park, the Holiday

Light Drive will be a city-wide effort as far as participation goes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau is reaching out to local businesses to come out and decorate a tree or sponsor an event. If an individual, business or group wishes to sponsor a tree, the rules are as follows: outdoor quality lights are required for use on the trees, electricity is provided and the sponsor is responsible for all decorations and lights on their tree. Location of the trees will be in place and labeled by Nov. 5. Decorating should be complete by Nov. 22. A sponsor sign will be in place by Nov. 24. Because the Williston Parks and Rec District will not be able to store the decorations for the trees, decorations should be removed by Jan. 7. Anyone who would like to work the gate can call the Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau at 701-774-9041 to schedule a time to do so. Businesses that would like to sponsor an activity night can also contact the Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau. The gate fee will be $5 and nonprofit and community groups are invited to come out and volunteer to work the event.

Rec center moving closer to opening BY LARRY GRIFFIN WILLISTON HERALD

The Williston Area Recreation Center, opening in March 2014, is fast on its way to completion. Over the summer, JLG Architects and builders J.E. Dunn made progress on finishing up rooms in the rec center. In August, workers finished pouring the pools. Progress was made on the tennis courts, the pools, the infrastructure of the building and the parking lot in August. Framing work was started on the main entryway and on the ceiling of the upstairs work out room. The core offices will be finished by January, as well as the gymnasium and exterior paneling. The leisure pool will be the final area complete, in late February. In September, Jim Galloway

with JLG Architects reported that the Rec Center was ahead of schedule. The budget in September was reported as $68.7 million. In October, the Parks & Recreation board began accepting bids to fill the Williston Area Rec Center with equipment. They will be bringing in floor scrubbers, a skid steer, a golf simu-

lator, cardiac and strength exercise equipment, a video surveillance system and spin bikes. The rec center will be equipped also with multiple pools, an indoor playground, a tennis court and more. According to executive director Darin Krueger, the goal is to have the rec center entirely enclosed by winter to protect it from the harsh conditions in North Dakota during the season.

The MYCIC is open year-round, and a patio and windows look out over the confluence of the rivers, which Corps of Discovery Capt. Meriwether Lewis described in his journal as â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś this long wished for spot.â&#x20AC;? Reidburn, enamored of the scene as well, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I smile every time I look out the window, because I work here.â&#x20AC;? A variety of events will be held at the MYCIC this fall. A highlight is the Ninth annual Cemetery Walk that will take place from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 19. The walk is a guided lantern tour from ghost to ghost as they tell their tales of woe. Refreshments and treats for kids will be served. Ghost stories also will be read.

Even in winter, there’s plenty to do One year ago as I prepared the Fall and Winter Visitor’s Guide, I did so with a sense of dread. Just months into my adventure in North Dakota, winter was coming, and I had no idea what to expect. The stories I heard from My North Dakota veterans Turn made it clear David I was not Rupkalvis prepared and could not get prepared. My own survival was in question. While the weather was one thing I was concerned about, I also worried that there would be nothing to do. You see, with four kids at home the thought

of spending months with the kids locked inside was harrowing. But surprise, surprise, life does not stop when the weather gets cold. Williston celebrates Halloween as well as any place I’ve lived. Starting with a trick or treat downtown and heading deep into the night, my youngsters and I had a ton of fun. Yes, it was cold, and yes, some of the costumes were covered up with jackets, but I promise you the kids didn’t care. Bags of candy are worth it. One Thanksgiving hit, the fun really began. The Light up Harmon Park Parade, Christmas Stroll and especially the lights at Spring Lake Park were something we all enjoyed. Throw in events like a meatball festival, lefse baking at Bethel Home, Christmas

Making memories Even in cold weather, there are opportunities — like the Christmas Stroll — to meet Santa and make memories.

concerts and other events, and we had more fun than I would have ever imagined. The community events were a blast, but the best times were reserved for something I had never even done — sledding. We live right next to a steep hill, so when the first big storm hit in November, we were ready. Just walk out the front door, go about 200 feet and slide down the hill. For days, my girls begged to go back, and for days we agreed. When that got a little old — actually a little too fast for mom and dad — we tried out the hills near The Raymond Family Recreation Center. Those were just as fun. Not only was it a blast to slide down the hill — with and without sleds — I got more exercise than I ever imagined hauling the gear and sometimes kids back up. Yes, there were times it was tough over winter, but we really did find a lot of reasons to get out of the house and had a lot of fun. In just weeks, it’s starting over again. This year the dread is gone and has been replaced with excitement. So if you are new to Williston or are just visiting don’t let the temperature outdoors keep you from having fun. Whether it’s a community event, sledding down a hill or just admiring the beauty that only comes in the northwest, great memories can be made in winter as well.
