NDRA Finals Parade of Homes Set for
Rodeo This September 30 in Sidney
By Jaimee Green
Roping. Riding. Guts. Glory. Do you really need more of
a hint than that? Well, okay then! Here it goes. It’s rodeo time
in Watford City and that, ol’ partner, is reason enough to
scrape the mud off those cowboys boots, grab your best
duds and mosey on into town to one of the wildest rodeos in
The two-day NDRA Rodeo Finals event will feature the
talents of North Dakotas’ top 12 competitors in nine events,
as they try to become the 2012 NDRA State Champion.
The event is taking place Sept. 7-8 with rodeo action
starting at 7:00 p.m. and will include a Calcutta at the
McKenzie County Fairgrounds inside the indoor arena, followed by a Play in the Dirt Dance. Go-around prizes will be
awarded during the dance to each night’s top contestants.
The beer garden opens Friday at 6:00 p.m.
Other events are scheduled for Saturday including the
Watford City High School Club Rodeo at 9:00 a.m. along
with a team roping event to follow at 10:00 a.m.
The Saturday NDRA Rodeo again starts at 7:00 p.m.
with champions crowned during the evening performance.
Even if you’re an avid rodeo-goer, this particular venue
offers something a little different from your average outdoor
arena. “Watching the rodeo indoors really gets you up close
to the action. Many of these competitors are amateur performers who go professional. When you mix that with some
of the best rodeo stock there is, watching it all from 50 feet
away is really a good time,” said Gene Veeder, a NDRA Rodeo Finals Committee member.
This year, the regional musical talents of Lonesome Willy
will again perform for each night’s dance.
This year marks the celebration of 59 years of the North
Dakota Rodeo Association with this being the 14th annual
event taking place in Watford City.
“It’s been interesting these past few years. This event
draws people from all over. Our biggest challenge is having
enough sleeping accommodations for people traveling to
the area. We have been informing all of the competitors of
the housing shortage to ensure they plan their trip accordingly. But, this event is fun because there are so many new
faces. There are people who love rodeo and those who have
never been to one,” said Veeder.
Money generated from this event is part of an annual
fundraiser that benefits a number of area organizations, including the Eagles Club, McKenzie County 4-H and the Oilers Hockey Club.
Rodeo stock were chosen by judges and performers
and selected from a wide variety of stock contractors to help
ensure the best competition.
“The key that binds this event together is that while it’s a
rodeo it’s also a reunion for the 300 to 400 cowboys and
cowgirls who come together. It’s really a celebration where
you can be sure you will see some familiar faces while making new friends,” Veeder said.
Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students ages 7-18
and children 6 and under are free.
Brenda Larson of Creative Solutions, with the gracious cooperation of six local homeowners, has organized a Parade of Homes to
take place on Sunday, September 30 from 10 a.m. to
6p.m. MDT. The project is a

Weekend Event is Last Chance to
“E-rase Your E-waste” for 2012
This weekend is your last chance to clear that old computer out of your closet before the snow flies. The “E-rase
your E-waste” program is hosting its final collection for 2012
this Friday and Saturday, Sept 7-8, at the Richland County
Shop, 2140 W. Holly in Sidney, next to the Fairgrounds.
Already 160-plus individuals, businesses, government
agencies and organizations have recycled 291 monitors; 283
processors, 166 printers and 139 TVs, along with thousands
of smaller items at the group’s four FREE summer mini-collections, according to organizers. That amounts to three semitruck loads.
The Sept 7-8 weekend wrap up event is again FREE to
the public, organizers report, and will run from noon to 7 pm
on Friday (Sept. 7) and 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday (Sept. 8).
“The times are slightly different this year,” Jackie Couture, co-coordinator of the e-waste event, said. “We’re starting a little later both days, than we have in the past, but we’re
also extending the hours a bit at the end of each day which
we hope will be helpful for people.”
For those interested in more details on the event and
acceptable items for e-cyling, help is available at
www.ars.usda.gov/npa/nparl/ewaste. Businesses, schools
and other organizations with large amounts of e-waste to
recycle are asked to make an appointment to drop off their
items by calling Couture at 406-433-9422. Please leave a
The “E-rase your E-waste” program allows area businesses and residents to dispose of their old, obsolete electronic products in an environmentally friendly manner. The
annual collection effort is coordinated by the USDA-ARS
Northern Plains Agricultural Research Lab in Sidney, the
Richland County Local Emergency Planning Committee, and
Richland Opportunities, Inc.,
aided by volunteers with the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program.
Richland County provides free use of its shop for the
collection and storage and UNICOR serves as the e-cycler
for the event. Helping to provide equipment supplies and
promotional funding are Sidney Health Center, Richland
County Solid Waste, Lower Yellowstone REA, Sidney Sugars and the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.
“It takes a lot of help to hold these events and everyone’s
support and cooperation is very much appreciated,” Couture
said. “In particular, we want to thank our RSVP volunteers,
most of whom help us out regularly at all our collections,
year after year. We definitely couldn’t do it without them!”
More help, however, is always welcome, Couture added,
noting that if anyone is interested in volunteering to help with
the unloading and packaging of items at the September
event, they should please call Rita Jacobsen at 406-4332207 to sign up.
For more information on the E-rase your E-waste event,
please contact Jackie Couture at 406-433-9422 or Cindy
Eleson at 406-488-3341.

Fink Family Chiropractic
Opens in Sidney
Michael Fink, D.C. has
opened Fink Family Chiropractic in the Village Square
Mall, Sidney. Fink, the son of
Bill and the late Mary Fink,
graduated from Sidney High
School in 1993 and went on
to Concordia College. He
graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University, Bloomington, MN in
2002 with a doctorate of chiropractic. He practiced in
Belgrade, MT for two years
at a sports oriented clinic
where he worked extensively
with the local high school
doing sports physicals,
checking in at practices once
or twice per week, and standing by on the sidelines at every home game to help in
case of injuries.
In 2004, his son Tristan
was born and the growing
family decided to move back
to Minnesota to be nearer to
Fink’s wife’s family and to his
brothers, both of whom were
attending college there. Fink
had his own practice in Minnesota until May of this year
when he began fulfilling a
long time desire to move
back to Sidney. His wife Amy
and the children, Tristan, 8,
and Hailey, 6, are still living
in Minnesota but hope to be
Fink saw opportunity in
Sidney, both for his practice
and his children. “I saw
Sidney continuing to grow
and there was only one chiropractor here. In a similar
sized town in Minnesota,
there would be six. There’s
room for more here,” he said.
He also found a different atmosphere in the sports, particularly hockey, in Minnesota. “Tristan was always
playing with different kids
from different areas. There
isn’t the camaraderie there
like there is here.” Fink has
coached every sport his son
has been involved in and
plans to coach hockey in
In his practice, Fink
plans to combine sports
therapy, DOT physicals and
testing and family chiropractic. In his former practice, Fink
conducted DOT physicals as
well as random drug and alcohol testing for local bus
drivers. He has visited with

Sidney High School and

Deer Season for Young Sandhill Crane Season
Hunters Opens Sept. 14 Opens Sept. 15
Friday, Sept. 14 at noon signals the start of a nine-and-ahalf day deer hunting season for youth ages 12-15.
Licensed youth ages 12 and 13 are allowed to hunt
statewide, but only for antlerless white-tailed deer. Deer hunters age 14 or 15 with a “youth season” license can hunt
statewide for any deer, except antlerless mule deer in units
3B1, 3B2, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E and 4F. In addition, a special
license is required to hunt antlered mule deer in those same
After opening day, hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset. Solid daylight fluorescent orange vests or coats, and hats are required for all
young hunters and their adult mentors.
Each youth deer hunter must be under direct supervision of an adult while in the field.
In addition to the deer license, hunters must possess a
general game and habitat license and hunting certificate.
The youth deer season closes Sunday, Sept. 23.
Weekend Sept. 15-16
North Dakota’s two-day youth waterfowl season is Sept.
15-16. Legally licensed resident and nonresident youth waterfowl hunters age 15 and younger can hunt ducks, geese,
coots and mergansers statewide.
The daily bag limit and species restrictions for the youth
season are the same as for regular duck and goose seasons.
Resident and qualifying nonresident youth waterfowl
hunters must possess a general game and habitat license
and a fishing, hunting and furbearer certificate. Nonresidents
from states that do not provide a reciprocal licensing agreement for North Dakota residents must purchase the entire
nonresident waterfowl license package.
In addition, all youth hunters must be Harvest Information Program certified, and youth ages 12 and older need to
have passed a certified hunter education course. Hunters
age 15 and younger do not need a federal duck stamp.
Hunters who purchase a license through the North Dakota Game and Fish Department can easily get HIP certified.
Otherwise, hunters must call (888) 634-4798, or log on to the
Game and Fish website at gf.nd.gov, and record the HIP
number on their fishing, hunting and furbearer certificate.
Shooting hours for the youth waterfowl season are onehalf hour before sunrise to sunset. An adult at least 18 years
of age must accompany the resident youth hunter into the
field, and a licensed adult is required to accompany a nonresident youth hunter. The two-day weekend hunt does not
count against a nonresident adult hunter’s 14-day regular
season waterfowl dates.
North Dakota’s sandhill crane season opens Sept. 15.
Hunters are urged to use caution and identify birds to prevent shooting at whooping cranes as they begin their fall
The sandhill crane season is open through Nov. 11 in
unit 1 (west of U.S. Highway 281), and through Oct. 21 in unit
2 (east of U.S. Highway 281). Limits are three daily and six in
possession in unit 1, and two daily and four in possession in
unit 2. Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to 1
p.m. each day through Nov. 3. Beginning Nov. 4, shooting
hours are extended until 2 p.m. each day.
In addition to other licenses required, prospective hunters need a $5 crane permit. Hunters can apply online, or
print out a resident or nonresident application for mailing, at
the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website,
gf.nd.gov. Harvest Information Program certification is required. To get HIP certified, access the department’s website,
or call (888) 634-4798.
Hunters can also send the permit fee, along with personal information, including height, weight, social security
number, date of birth, color of hair and eyes, and hunter
education number and state issued, to Crane Permit, NDGF,
100 N. Bismarck Expressway, Bismarck, ND 58501.

What Does Opportunity Look Like?
If you live in Montana, chances are you know someone who has headed to the Bakken in search of it.
By Dave Galt
Executive Director, Montana Petroleum Association
Thanks to that large source rock formation, and the technology that makes it accessible, North Dakota has now
vaulted to the number two position among oil producers in
the United States, following only Texas. August estimates
show the state pacing to generate $4 billion from oil taxes
during the current two-year budget cycle, nearly twice the
amount forecast just a few months ago. That money, much of
it banked in special reserve funds, is clearly going to mean
great things for North Dakota schools, infrastructure and property tax relief.
On our side of the energy corridor, we know from economists at Montana’s universities that in the space of one year,
wages and salaries grew 16.2 percent in Richland County
and 11.9 percent in Fallon County. We know Montana’s oil
and gas industry overall contributed $440 million in taxes to
state and local governments in 2011. We know growth is
happening on our side of the Bakken, and that 2012 is shaping up to be a record year statewide for oil permits.
But with that big picture, it sometimes seems like we
hear more about the challenges that come with the velocity
of growth from the oil and natural gas boom - housing short-
ages, truck traffic, crime - than about the opportunities. Sometimes, more is said about the pressures on local infrastructure than about the entrepreneurial Montanans who are
achieving success in meeting the challenges of that growth.
Many of us have been through enough booms and busts
to know that growth of any kind requires more responsibility.
We also know that we are living in a global market and the
price of oil, and demand for it, changes. Nevertheless, the
Bakken is beckoning many Montanans. They see it as a place
where they can make their own breaks, despite a tough
Cam Holt spent many years working at restaurants and
selling real estate in Bozeman. Prodded by a friend, he went
to Williston, N.D. to scout it out. He found a run-down gas
station on Williston’s main street which he transformed into 3
Amigos Southwest Grill. He has staffed it with folks he knew
from the Gallatin Valley and is now serving up to 500 meals
a day, not including a huge to-go business delivering direct
to the oil fields surrounding the town. Next up, he’s planning
an ice cream parlor.
John Olson, a University of Montana graduate, is the
owner of Blue Rock Products and distributes soft drinks, beer
and wine in eastern Montana and western North Dakota.
“Our sales have gone through the roof,” he said. “I guess
we’re the number one Pepsi plant in the country right now.”
Rick Leuthold, director of business development for
Sanderson Stewart, an engineering firm in Billings, said the
company is working on more than a dozen subdivisions,
industrial parks and retail and commercial developments in
Williston. It encompasses an area of more than 1,800 acres.
And Andrew Braxton of Braxton Development, based in
Bozeman, says his company is working on completing its
second hotel in the Williston market this year. Plus, the company is also working on a 500-unit residential community
with club house and fitness center in Williston.
Those are just a few. The Billings Gazette reported some
50 businesses there are busy answering the calls from 350
oil companies hungry for workers, trucks, pipe and more.
Rapid growth rarely happens without hurdles, but
Montanans tend to step up to a challenge. For those with
imagination and commitment, the Bakken is a rich opportunity for building new business and responsibly developing
sustainable communities. Done right, the oil becomes simply the catalyst that helps make it all possible.

Toxic to Horses
Blister beetles, which are toxic to horses, could be a
problem in North Dakota this year.
“While blister beetles are common in many areas of the
U.S., horse owners in North Dakota usually have not been
concerned with this toxic insect,” says Carrie Hammer, North
Dakota State University Extension Service equine specialist. “However, several individuals in western North Dakota
have reported alfalfa fields infested with blister beetles this
year. Horse owners need to be cautious because horses that
consume alfalfa hay contaminated with these beetles have
a high risk for serious illness and death.”
Several species of blister beetles can be found in the
U.S., and all produce cantharidin, a toxin that causes inflammation and blistering of internal body tissues. Although all
species produce the toxin, the cantharidin content varies
among species. The striped blister beetle is known for consistently having higher toxin concentrations.
“A common question from horse owners is: ‘How many
beetles can my horse consume before I need to worry?’“
Hammer says. “Due to the variation in toxin concentration
among beetles, this is a difficult question to answer. However, most studies report ingestion of 25 to 300 beetles is
enough to kill an average-size adult horse.”
Clinical signs of blister beetle poisoning usually occur
six to eight hours after ingestion. Affected horses often show
signs of colic and depression, although urinary, cardiovascular and nervous system problems also can occur.
Horses consuming a toxic dose can die quickly (within
three to 18 hours).
Owners should consult their veterinarian immediately if
they suspect their horse has consumed blister beetles.
Blister beetles tend to congregate in certain areas of a
field. Thus, hay bales from those areas often contain high
beetle numbers, whereas bales from other areas of the field
may be beetle-free.
Hammer encourages horse owners to check alfalfa bales
carefully prior to feeding the alfalfa to their horses and discard any contaminated bales.
“Even the juice from crushed beetles can cause illness;
therefore, owners should not simply remove dead beetles in
hopes of feeding the hay,” she adds.
Swan Hunt Lottery
Held, Licenses Remain
North Dakota’s swan lottery has been held and more
than 300 licenses remain. Only hunters who do not have a
swan license for the 2012 season can apply, as regulations
limit hunters to one license per year.
Beginning Sept. 5, all remaining licenses will be issued
on a first-come, first-served basis. Resident and nonresident
hunters will be able to apply online, or print out an application to mail, at the State Game and Fish Department website,
gf.nd.gov. Hunters may also request an application by calling the department’s Bismarck office at (701) 328-6300. The
license fee is $5 for residents and $25 for nonresidents.
The statewide tundra swan hunting season is Sep. 29 –

Buffalo Wild Wings to Break
Ground in Williston September 4
By Barb Peterson
Williston Economic Development
One of America’s most popular sports bars is coming to
Williston. Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar (BWW) will hold
an official ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday, September 4, at 2:30 p.m., at 417 Reiger Drive. The site is located
just south of the Herman Oil Convenience Store.
Wings of Minot, LLC is bringing the restaurant to Williston.
The company is owned by Minot restaurateur Ken Herslip,
his wife Janelle and his daughters Sam Herslip and Dani
Reichenberger. The family operation also owns BWW in
Minot. They earned the Buffalo Wild Wings Single Unit Franchisee of the year award in 2011.
Reichenberger, who is director of operations for Wings
of Minot, says they are anxious to open the Williston store.
“We are just really happy and excited to be in Williston. We’ll
have great staff and we are looking forward to providing the
community with a great place to eat,” she says.
Basin Brokers helped Wings of Minot bring BWW to
Williston. Tate Cymbaluk, part-owner of Basin Brokers, says
he believes the sports bar will be well received. “Buffalo
Wild Wings will provide a great benefit to the community. It
will give people living in and around the area another option
for dining out,” he says.
Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982. It is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The restaurant specializes in its namesake, Buffalo, New York-style chicken
wings and eighteen signature sauces.
The restaurant has received hundreds of “Best Wings”
and “Best Sports Bar” awards from across the country. There
are more than 800 BWW restaurants in Canada and the U.S.
If everything goes as planned the Williston BWW will
open sometime around February 1, 2013. Reichenberger
says the facility will look a lot like the one in Minot. “It will be
a similar setup. It will accommodate approximately 270
people inside and another 40-50 on the patio,” she says.
Wings of Minot has promoted its Minot general manager, Tory Crowe, to regional manager. They are currently
hiring six managers who will train at the Minot BWW. They
will begin hiring hourly workers later this year. To apply for a
position e-mail [email protected] call Dani at 701340-9616 or Tory at 701-509-2514.

A Little Bit Country
Threat to Winter Wheat
By Warren Froelich
NDSU Extension Agent
Since a recent news column of mine about grasshoppers, several people have
described extremely high
populations of grasshoppers.
It appears we have numerous locations of very high
which have the potential of
threatening winter wheat and
also be the source of an expanded threat to crops
seeded next spring.
If you are in a hot spot
for grasshoppers and are
thinking about planting winter wheat, be prepared to
apply an insecticidal treatment. The current hot and dry
conditions are providing very
favorable conditions for reproduction of some very hungry grasshoppers. This activity will continue until we receive a good hard frost. Who
knows when that will come
but records indicate a frost
cold enough to kill grasshoppers may not arrive until midOctober.
According to Jan
Knodel, NDSU Extension
seed treatments in winter
wheat provide only minimal
control of adult grasshoppers. So, if grasshoppers
threaten wheat this fall, a foliar insecticide application is
the only alternative. Several
insecticides are approved for
grasshopper control in
wheat. A list can be found on
pages 110-111 of the 2012
Field Crop Insect Management Guide available from
Galls On Trees
Each year I can count on
receiving numerous questions about abnormal
growths located on the
leaves and sometimes twigs
of trees. In the forest industry
and academia these growths
are referred to as galls.
Galls occur on many
species of trees, vary in size
and take on a range of forms.
They can be large, round
bumps, or woody galls;
smaller, thin, finer-like projections; red felt-like patches referred to as erineum, and
even multicolored hair-covered galls called hedgehog
Galls are really the result of mites and insects feeding on the leaves and stem.
When the insects feed they
inject growth-altering compounds which stimulate the
abnor mal growths. The
growths can serve as a food
source and/or protective
structure for various stages
of insect development. This
eliminates the effectiveness
of surface applied insecticides.
Despite the sometimes
severe appearance of these
galls, they are seldom a
threat to the overall tree or
shrub health. The reduced
beauty of the tree is the ma-
jor consequence of galls. In
cases where gall formation
is very heavy and affects
more than 30 percent of the
leaf area of the entire tree,
control of the insects may be
warranted. However, controlling mites and insects that
form galls on broadleaf trees
and shrubs is difficult. An
early spring application of a
systemic insecticide soil
drench may provide effective
control. Foliar sprays of a systemic insecticide can provide
some level of gall-forming
mite and insect control but it
will also kill beneficial insects
which prey on gall-forming
insects. Imidacloprid is an
insecticide with systemic
meaning it can be taken up
by the roots and transferred
throughout the vascular system of the tree. It also can be
applied to the foliage with
some systemic impact.
Horticulture oils can be
applied in the spring before
bud break and again directly
after bud break. However,
the timing of application is
critical to achieving control.
Horticulture oils generally will
not harm beneficial insects.
When asked for recommendations, I generally suggest less frequent observation of the tree and to make
sure the overall health of the
tree is maintained. This usually can be accomplished
with adequate water.

MOGA Applauds USFWS Decision
to Delist Wyoming Gray Wolf
Montana Outfitters and
Guides Association (MOGA)
Executive Director Mac
Minard, applauded today’s
announcement by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service to
delist the Wyoming population of gray wolves and declare them recovered and no
longer in need of protections
afforded by the Endangered
Species Act (ESA).
Of the action Minard
said, “Beginning September
30th, wolves in Wyoming will
be managed by the state under an approved management plan; this action places
them on equal footing with
the sister states of Montana
and Idaho. Sportsmen in the
West see this as a major victory for science based management over emotional arguments.”
“Our primary goal, and
that of the states, is to ensure
that gray wolf populations in
the Northern Rocky Mountains remain healthy, giving
Governor Schweitzer issued an Executive Order Declaring a Statewide Fire Emergency.
With fire danger levels ranging from high to extreme
across the state, Governor Brian Schweitzer asked Montanans and out-of-state visitors to remain extra cautious during
their outdoor activities and follow all local fire restrictions.
“There’s no definitive end in sight for our above-normal
temperatures and below-normal precipitation,” said Governor Schweitzer. “Fuels are bone dry. This fire season could
last through September, maybe longer, and we need to take
every precaution until it’s over.”
The public is asked to avoid fire areas if possible to
minimize traffic. Please do not stop along the road to observe aircraft and remember to use headlights in smoky areas. Fire managers urge Montanans and our summer guests
to be aware of fires in the area and when possible avoid
traveling in those areas where fire fighters and their equipment need clear use of sometimes limited roadways.
future generations of Americans the chance to hear its
howl echo across the area,”
said Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe.
No one, least of all residents of Idaho, Montana and
Wyoming, want to see
wolves back on the endangered species list. But that’s
what will happen if recovery
targets are not sustained.
However, many sportsmen
fear the loss of over 100
years of successful wildlife
management due to an uncontrolled expansion of
wolves on the landscape.
To secure the delisting
decision Wyoming committed to meeting statutory and
regulatory standards by
managing for a buffer above
minimum management targets and maintaining at least
150 wolves and 15 breeding
pairs within the State of Wyoming. This is the same management objective as was
adopted by the states of Montana and Idaho.
Beginning October 1,
the State of Wyoming has
authorized a harvest of 52
wolves in other portions of
northwestern Wyoming’s Trophy Area in 2012.
MOGA has previously
released a blueprint for managing large predators in
Montana that falls within the
limits required by the USFWS
agreements. Under that
plan three primary principles
are identified; 1) regulated
hunting and trapping needs
to be liberalized for predators
commensurate with the principles of sustain yield, 2) a
fully funded Wildlife Services
is essential is applying surgical control (of wolves primarily) in places and times
where regulated hunting and
trapping cannot meet the
needed reductions and 3)
predators need to be managed in concert with stated
management goals for ungulate populations.
Of the policy Executive
Director Mac Minard said,
“This policy is a thoughtful
and reasoned approach that
balances the need to manage wildlife for the benefit of
the Montana public and control some segments of the
predator populations at
times and locations, and in a
species specific manner,
where such measures help
attain stated wildlife management objectives. We believe this is a very direct and
thoughtful approach that
many hunters/conservationists will stand behind.”
“We applaud the fact
that Wyoming will now be
able to craft the kind of responsible management system they need to balance
competing interests and address long-term conserva-
tion goals for all species involved,” said Minard.
