(AP) The U-S Army Corps
of Engineers should manage the Missouri River next
in upstream reservoirs.
That was the call from officials from North
Dakota and South Dakota last night. Officials from the two states
say the corps should reduce its support for the declining downstream
barge industry, so more water can be kept in reservoirs in the
Dakotas and Montana during the ongoing drought.
About 60 people
attended a meeting held by the corps in Pierre (PEER), South
Dakota, to discuss its draft 2004 operating plan for the Missouri
A second meeting is set for today in Omaha, with
a final public meeting tomorrow in Columbia, Missouri. The draft
plan notes that the area is in its fourth year of drought,
and the reservoirs now hold a record low 40-(M)-million acre
feet of water.

North Valley County Hunter Shoots Apparent Escaped
Canadian Game-Farm Elk (Posted Wednesday, October 29, 2003 06:07
A bull elk shot in northern Valley County on Sunday, Oct. 26 was
apparently an escapee from a game farm in southern Saskatchewan.
A Valley County hunter shot the elk in the Rock Creek drainage
north of Hinsdale on opening day of the 2003 big-game season. The
bull had two ear tags that contained information that Fish, Wildlife & Park
investigators traced back to a game farm north of the Montana border
near Climax, Sask.
Canadian game farm investigators who assisted in tracing back the
origin of the elk indicated that the animal had been sold to the
Climax game-farm operator in March. The elk had not been reported
lost, escaped or missing, according to Canadian officials.
The elk’s head was submitted to FWP for chronic wasting disease
testing, which will be expedited considering the origin of the
animal. Fish, Wildlife & Parks is intensively monitoring elk
and deer harvested along Montana’s northern border to detect
CWD if it moves south from Saskatchewan.
The animal was on a ranch which participated in a CWD surveillance
program,” says Region 6 Warden Captain Mike Herman. “The
surveillance program requires the operator to submit samples routinely,
so the Saskatchewan government can monitor for CWD. This operator
who sold the animal does not have CWD present in his herd.”
Herman said he is grateful that the hunter contacted FWP after
harvesting the elk, and encourages other hunters who harvest tagged
deer or elk in Region 6 to submit the heads of those animals for
This is the first year hunters have been able to harvest either
sex of elk on their general elk license in many Region 6 hunting
districts. The general-season regulation, which does not include
the Missouri River Breaks or Bear Paw hunting districts, is in
part designed to serve as a buffer to keep potentially CWD-infected
animals from the region’s core elk habitat.

Weather Service Glasgow Office Receives Award (Posted Friday, October
24, 2003 09:44 AM)
The U.S. Department of Commerce has awarded
its Bronze Medal to the NOAA National Weather Service Forecast
Office in Glasgow for its public service. The National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration's NWS Forecast Office in Glasgow
was recognized for providing outstanding service to the citizens
of northeast Montana during two significant flash flooding events
which resulted in extensive property damage including two dam breaks.
NOAA is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
NWS Glasglow's Meteorologist in Charge, Julie Adolphson, was presented the award
today in College Park, Md., by retired Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher,
Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator.
The Bronze Medal is the highest honorary award given by NOAA and is granted for
a significant contribution to NOAA or the Department of Commerce.
"The forecast office in Glasgow is recognized for providing outstanding
warning services to the citizens of northeast Montana during two significant
flash flooding events on June 22-23 and Aug. 21, 2002. Because of their efforts,
no lives were lost, no injuries occurred, and property loss was minimized," said
Vickie Nadolski, NWS Western Region director. "The Glasgow team demonstrated
the effectiveness of their comprehensive severe weather preparedness programs."
Adolphson explained the community was well warned for the June 22-23 event. The
forecast team put out early warnings for the likelihood of flash flooding more
than three hours prior to water from the break.
"Early on June 22, forecasters used our severe weather checklists and issued
a Severe Weather Outlook indicating that severe thunderstorms were possible from
the afternoon through evening. A flash flood warning was also issued and the
storm's total precipitation was nearly ten inches. The next day, a Skywarn weather
spotter called to indicate the dam had given away. Another flash flood warning
was issued immediately because the dam held 2,200 acre feet of water and was
60 feet high and 500 feet long," Adolphson said.
Norm Parrent, Montana State Disaster and
Emergency Services District IV representative, praised the efforts
of the Glasgow forecasters by saying, "Because of
the Glasgow NWS office's quick warning of the dam break, the people downstream
of the dam were able to get to safety before the wall of water reached their
homes." Several cars were washed away, basements flooded, fences destroyed,
but no lives were lost. Hundreds of livestock were moved to safety.
The Aug. 21, 2002 event produced more than the average yearly rainfall in less
than eight hours and produced hail drifts as deep as two feet. Adolphson said
the extreme rainfall rate exceeded anything the local forecasters had seen
since the Doppler weather radar became operational in Glasgow seven years ago.
A Severe Weather Outlook was issued early that morning highlighting the potential
for severe thunderstorms with large hail and very heavy rain for the afternoon
and evening of Aug. 21. "The statement said 'the best chance of severe
thunderstorms will be along and south of US Highway 2' and that was exactly
where the severe weather occurred," Adolphson explained. "Over the
next six and one half hours, the severe thunderstorms intensified and continuously
redeveloped over southern Valley and northern McCone counties."
Nadolski concluded, "The Department of Commerce, NOAA and the National
Weather Service have all benefited from the outstanding performance of the
entire staff of the weather forecast office in Glasgow. They have demonstrated
their effectiveness by preparing a well thought out and coordinated warning
program that has led to saving lives and property of the people of northeast

Burns Announces Over
$24 Million In Transportation Funds For Montana (Posted Friday,
October 24, 2003 09:38 AM)
WASHINGTON- U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns announced today that the Transportation
and Treasury Appropriations passed out of the full Senate last night
on a vote of 91-3. As a senior member of the powerful Senate Appropriations
Committee, Senator Burns helped secure $24,250,000 in funding for
These are prime infrastructure dollars," said Burns. "With
the vast road network in Montana, we need to stay on top of maintaining
them and providing new routes to account for growth in our communities.
This also covers our airport improvements and air transportation
in the state. This is key to our commerce and economy. I will continue
to follow these projects along the process."
The Essential Air Service Program (EAS) is slated to receive $102
million, which is $52 million more than requested by the administration,
but still lower than the $113 million received in this fiscal year.
EAS subsidizes freight and passenger flights to seven cities in Montana
including Miles City, Glasgow, Glendive, Wolf Point, Lewistown, Havre,
and Sidney. "It's always a battle to keep EAS funded," said
Burns. "I'm not happy with this figure, because it's not enough
to cover the nation, but it is enough to maintain stability for the
Missoula Airport Director John Seymour said "We've been working
on getting funding for this project for years, and we're just ecstatic
that such a huge chunk of the money we need is coming to us. I can't
tell you how thankful I am to Senator Burns."
" We're very pleased to see this ongoing support from Senator Burns and the
entire delegation," said Mick Holm, Superintendent of Glacier National Park. "This
funding will allow us to continue the critical repair work on the Going-To-The-Sun
road. Specifically we will be looking to do work in the Alpine stretch of the
road, and I feel confident with the backing of Senator Burns and our whole delegation,
we will get this project completed."
Bruce Putnam is Director of Aviation and Transit for Billings. "We'd like
to acknowledge the role of Senator Burns for securing these funds for the city
of Billings. He began work on this project about 2 years ago and his first efforts
secured funding for a site, upon which this new [Bus Transfer] facility will
sit. The funds will be the icing on the cake and we appreciate the work Senator
Burns has put into securing these funds."
Burns also announced six airports would be listed as priorities for improvement
funds that will be attached to the legislation during the joint House-Senate
conference committee. The priority airports in Montana are: Bert Mooney Airport
in Butte, Great Falls International Airport, Helena Regional Airport, Glacier
Park International Airport, Missoula International Airport, and Gallatin Field
The legislation will now go to a joint House-Senate conference committee. Once
reconciled, the bill then goes back to the House and Senate respectively for
final passage, then on to the President for his signature. The Transportation
and Treasury appropriations bill is one of 13 annual spending bills passed by

Asked To Help FWP With Chronic Wasting Disease Detection (Posted
Wednesday, October 22, 2003 06:43 AM)
Deer and elk hunters in northeastern Montana can help Fish, Wildlife & Parks
determine if chronic wasting disease has entered the state by donating
heads of harvested deer and elk to a continuing study of the disease.
Large collection barrels will be placed at a half-dozen sites in
Region 6, in locations stretching from Medicine Lake to Havre, in
an effort to collect at least 500 heads of deer and elk. Previous
surveys of wild deer and elk have not found CWD in Montana, but because
the disease has been discovered in wild deer in southwestern Saskatchewan
as well as in Wyoming and South Dakota, FWP wants to increase surveillance
along Montana’s borders.
Unfortunately, it’s probably not a matter of if we find CWD
among Montana’s deer and elk,” says Harold Wentland,
Region 6 wildlife manager. “It’s probably a matter of
when we find it. And our surveillance effort is designed to really
focus on border areas where we expect to see the first cases of CWD
entering Montana from other states or provinces.”
Last year, more than 1,000 heads of hunter-harvested deer and elk
were tested for the disease. They all tested negative. This year
FWP hopes to collect nearly 2,000 samples from hunters, including
more than 500 from animals harvested in northeastern and north-central
Montana. Other intensive surveillance areas are the southern and
southeastern borders of Montana and areas around Philipsburg, where
CWD was detected in elk in a game farm in 1999.
Chronic wasting disease is an always-fatal, contagious disease that
has been present in wild deer herds in southeastern Wyoming and northern
Colorado for the past 30 years. It has slowly spread across the West
and has been diagnosed in some game-farm deer and elk.
Submission of heads is voluntary and hunters will not be individually
notified if their deer or elk tests negative for the disease. Hunters
whose deer or elk heads test positive for CWD will be notified immediately
upon detection. Heads should be submitted as soon as possible after
the hunt. They will be picked up at least once per week from the
collection barrels. Detailed instructions will be posted at the collection
sites, but FWP reminds hunters who want to submit heads to follow
these simple steps:
When field dressing your animal, leave evidence of sex, in addition
to the head, attached to the carcass. This consists of the testes,
vulva or mammary gland. This will insure legal evidence of sex remains
even after the head has been removed.
Cut off the animal’s head, leaving approximately 4 inches of
the neck attached. This will insure all targeted tissues are included
in the sample.
Fill out the requested information on the Chronic Wasting Disease
survey tags, available at the collection sites. This includes a location
(drainage, lake, prominent geographic feature or legal description
of the section, township and range) where the animal was harvested,
the date killed, hunting district, species and sex of the animal.
Hunters should also include their names, ALS numbers and addresses
for follow-up contact, if necessary.
Secure the tag by making a small incision in the middle of the ear
and attaching with cable ties available at the sites.
Information provided on the tags will help FWP personnel know where
and when the animal was harvested. Hunters should also provide name
and phone number so that FWP can contact them in case the animal
tests positive or the department needs additional information.
Aune notes that test results will not be available for 6 to 8 weeks
after samples are submitted. If any sample is diagnosed with
CWD, the hunter who submitted it will be contacted by FWP. While
there is no evidence that CWD can be transmitted from meat to
humans, as a routine precaution FWP advises hunters to wear rubber
gloves during the dressing of game. In addition, nerve tissues,
such as the spinal cord and the brain, should not be consumed.
The 55-gallon collection barrels will be located at the FWP office
on Highway 2 East in Havre, at A-Bar-S Meat Processors off Highway
5 East in Scobey, at the Medicine Lake National Wildlife Refuge
headquarters off Highway 16 south of Medicine Lake, at the FWP
Region 6 headquarters on Highway 2 West in Glasgow and at Snyder’s
Processing (115 S. 7th St. East) in Malta.
