40 Violent And Sexual Offenders Residing In Valley County
Wednesday, February 10th 2016
Montana is home to thousands of sexual and violent offenders, and it's the job of police and the Montana Department of Justice to ensure those offenders follow the rules of their post-conviction lives.

The Montana Sexual or Violent Offender Registry monitors an average of 2,300 sexual offenders and 3,300 violent offenders.

Sexual offenders are placed in a three-level tier system, which determines how often they are required to verify their address.

Deputy Montana Attorney General Jon Bennion says that conducting compliance checks across Montana has been a top priority of the AG's office for the past three years.

Valley County currently has 40 violent and sexual offenders registered with the State of Montana. There are 21 sexual offenders and 19 violent offenders registered in Valley County.

Roosevelt County has 122 offenders registered while Phillips County has 12.

FWP Seeking Comment on Draft EA for Purchase of Conservation Easement in Phillips Co.
Friday, January 29th 2016
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking comment on a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed action of purchasing a conservation easement on 1,760 acres from Wetlands America Trust Inc., a division of Ducks Unlimited (DU). This property, called Pintail Flat, is located as a single parcel approximately 14 miles south of Dodson in Phillips County.

The proposed easement would continue to conserve and enhance wetland and grassland habitats, perpetuate agriculture as the principle use, and maintain public access. The property is located in a priority area for conservation of migratory and upland game birds and their habitats. The Pintail Flat acreage provides habitat to a number of waterfowl species and grassland birds, and a portion of the property is identified as sage grouse core area.

FWP plans to purchase the easement and implement the easement terms, including maintaining the present use of the pasture land on the property as livestock grazing. A rest-rotation grazing system would be implemented to maintain and improve range and wildlife habitat on the property.

The Draft EA, and opportunity to comment, is available online at fwp.mt.gov. Printed versions of the document can be obtained by contacting the Region 6 office at (406) 228-3700. A public meeting to describe the proposed easement and collect comments will be held in Malta in the basement of the Phillips Co. Library on Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. Written comments can also be mailed to: Pintail Flat EA Comments, MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks, 1 Airport Road, Glasgow, MT 59230, or emailed to katsmith@mt.gov. The deadline to submit comments is no later than 5 p.m., Feb. 26.

R-CALF USA Asserts BLM Overstepped Its Authority On Recent Decision Involving American Prairie Reserve
Thursday, January 14th 2016
Billings, Mont. - In a formal protest submitted yesterday to the Malta, Montana, field office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), R-CALF USA asserts the agency overstepped its authority.

On December 28 the BLM provided notice of its proposed decision to allow the American Prairie Reserve (APR) to graze bison on the Flat Creek Allotment located in Phillips County, Montana. Currently, the grazing permit for the allotment designates cattle as the approved species.

In addition to allowing the APR to graze bison, the BLM also proposed to allow the APR to remove all interior fences within the allotment and to allow year around grazing.

R-CALF USA states that information contained in the American Prairie Reserve's Website reveals that its purpose is to 'maintain a fully-functioning prairie-based wildlife reserve,' and it intends to combine both private and public lands for that purpose.

According to the BLM notice, the decision to grant APR's entire request would become final unless the agency receives a written protest.

R-CALF USA's protest points out that BLM regulations exclude bison from the list of animals eligible to be included as livestock on BLM grazing permits. Only cattle, sheep, horses, burros and goats are listed as species considered livestock.

The group also states that "the American Prairie Reserve's stated goals clearly indicate it does not intend to maintain its bison as if they were livestock. Instead, it intends to maintain its bison as wildlife."

The group contends the BLM has no authority to approve grazing permits for wildlife or for the purpose of establishing wildlife reserves.

"It is clear the Proposed Decision exceeds the BLM's scope of the authority to manage livestock grazing on federally-controlled lands," the group wrote.

The group also asserts that managing wildlife contradicts the BLM's regulatory objective of sustaining the western livestock industry. It also states the BLM's proposal to remove all interior fences contradicts best rangeland management practices, particularly rotational grazing.

"R-CALF USA believes the BLM's Proposed Decision is contrary to the BLM's stated objective of promoting the improvement of rangeland ecosystems for the purpose of sustaining the western livestock industry.

"Instead, the Proposed Decision constitutes defiance of the agency's stated objectives and will facilitate the demise of the western livestock industry by removing rangeland ideally suited for livestock enterprises from the purview of the Phillips County, Montana, livestock industry," concluded the protest.
