Glasgow Man Fined For Illegally Killing Golden Eagle
Wednesday, May 20th 2015
A 60-year-old man who acknowledged killing a golden eagle near Glasgow must pay a $3,000 fine and $3,000 in restitution.
Keith Morehouse, of Glasgow, was sentenced in federal court Tuesday after he pleaded guilty. The restitution will go to Bozeman's Montana Raptor Conservation Center, which rehabilitates injured birds and engages in community education, conservation and research.
Prosecutors say Morehouse violated state trapping regulations when he killed the eagle with a snare about 5 feet from the bait station. The state requires a 30-foot setback from bait stations visible from above.
An examination of the eagle revealed that it had been strangled to death by a loop of wire around its neck.

Paddlefish Harvest Ends From Fort Benton To Fort Peck Dam
Tuesday, May 19th 2015
The 2015 paddlefish harvest season on the Upper Missouri River section from Fort Benton to Fort Peck Dam will close at 12 noon on Tuesday May 19th, 2015, state officials said Sunday.
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 6 Fisheries Program Manager Steve Dalbey said the 24-hour harvest closure notice issued Monday at noon means that in the Upper Missouri River, paddlefish can only be caught and released for the remainder of the 2015 season.
The catch-and-release season will remain open through June 15, 2015. Proof of purchase of a white paddlefish tag on the angler’s fishing license is required for catch-and-release fishing in this section. Legal hours for catch-and-release fishing for paddlefish are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The 2015 paddlefish harvest target for this population in the Upper Missouri River is 500 fish. As of May 18th, a total of 465 paddlefish had been harvested. Since the season opened on May 1, harvest has been slow relative to prior years due to low river flows. FWP staff report that the number of anglers pursuing paddlefish remains high. FWP has the authority to close the paddlefish harvest season within 24 hours if it appears the harvest target may be exceeded.
Glasgow City Council Considers Ordinances Dealing With Pets And Parking
Tuesday, May 19th 2015
The Glasgow City Council is considering 3 new ordinances dealing with pets, parking and fences.
The pet ordinance would limit the amount of pets for each household in the City of Glasgow. The ordinance being considered by the Glasgow City Council would limit each household to a total number of 3 dogs and cats. Those household currently with more then 3 pets would be grandfathered and would be able to keep their current number of pets. But as the number of dogs or cats decreased through attrition over time, the owner must then abide by the limit of 3 dogs or cats.
The proposed ordinance would also allow households who have litters of dogs or cats a total of 60 days to dispose of the number of pets in excess of 3 dogs or cats, or any combination of thereof.
Another ordinance currently considered by the Glasgow City Council would increase the amount of time residents can park vehicles on city streets or city alleys. The current ordinance allows 60 hours that a vehicle can be parked without being moved. The proposed ordinance would move that to 5 days.
The final ordinance being considered would limit the height, setbacks and materials for fences, walls and hedges in the City of Glasgow.
The Glasgow City Council took no action on the proposed ordinances at their regular meeting on May 18th.
Northeast Montana Veterans Memorial Park Groundbreaking
Friday, May 15th 2015
The Board of Directors of the Northeast Montana Veterans Memorial Park, Inc. is proud to announce that all preparations are in place for construction to begin at the Fort Peck site after Memorial Day and be completed before Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, 2015.
LSC Construction Inc. of Fort Peck was awarded the contract for all work. The Fort Peck office of Interstate Engineering will oversee construction, Steve Page, co-chairman of the project announced this week. A construction coordinator from the Memorial committee will regularly monitor the work and coordinate with LSC until the work is completed. Page also noted that former Glasgow resident Don Baker, DBA Architects, Oakdale, MN, provided architectural work. This is Phase #1 of plans and when construction is completed this fall, the Memorial will be fully accessible and functional. This work will include Walls of Honor, the main monument, a grand entry with an identification sign, one vigil site, concrete walkways, an ADA entry from the south and extensive flag displays. There will be room for benches and other amenities as determined and approved by the planning committee.
The Memorial Park Board began meeting five years ago setting as a goal to build with private donations, using no government funding. “We have kept expenses to a bare minimum, paid no salaries or administration fees and worked hard to dedicate all donations to the Memorial,” Co-Chairman Tom Markle said. “To date, all funding has been private. A grant-writing plan is currently underway which includes public funding alternatives. Funding support has come from each of the nine counties in Northeast Montana,” he emphasized.
Sale of tiles for the Walls of Honor, a major fundraiser for the Memorial, exemplifies the depth of this support. The walls will feature 4-inch by 8-inch, polished, black granite tiles, each engraved with the name of a veteran and their branch of service. All veterans can be honored with a tile.
To date, over 400 tiles have been purchased to honor loved ones who served in all branches of the military. Through Memorial Day of 2015, the cost of a tile is $225 and by request, names of family and friends may be grouped together on the Walls. After this date, tiles will be added as sold. Order forms are available at most banks, VFW or Legion Clubs, online at www.veteransmt.org or by calling 406-228-2223. Tile purchases are deductible donations. The Memorial is a 501 c 19 non-profit organization, eligible to receipt tax-deductible donations. “While this first phase will not complete the project, we feel it provides a solid footprint for future enhancements, pending additional donations and tile sales, which will enable our team to pay as we go,” Page said.
On behalf of the Board, Page extended heartfelt gratitude for the generosity of individuals, businesses, institutions and organizations that have supported this effort. “We are grateful for the work and encouragement of so many over the years, and to our dedicated team of volunteers assisting in helping this project move along,” he said.
The site work that began in April prepared the ground for basic landscaping and electrical requirements for this and future needs. The planning committee plans to address these future needs soon, Page said. “Many ideas have been discussed including KIA and family vigil areas, sculptures, benches, monuments to various conflicts, branches of service, special operations, Wall of Honor legends and landscaping enhancements. The committee welcomes ideas, he added. Page also expressed appreciation for everyone’s patience in seeing this project become a reality after so many years. “It is a privilege to work on a project that honors the courage, sacrifice and duty of the thousands of Northeast Montana veterans who stepped up with uncommon patriotism in defense of our freedom whenever they were called to do so.”
Former Glasgow Man Facing Felony Charges In Wyoming
Tuesday, May 12th 2015
CASPER, Wyo. — Authorities added another charge against a 30-year-old man accused of trying to solicit children for an inappropriate training class in Casper, Wyo.
Darren William Cornell, who is a registered sex offender, now faces one count of attempted third-degree sexual abuse in addition to sexual exploitation of children.
Cornell, who is being represented by public defender Rob Oldham, waived his preliminary hearing Thursday in Natrona County Circuit Court. Cornell will enter pleas to the charges at a District Court arraignment. That hearing has not yet been scheduled. He is currently being held in the Natrona County Detention Center in lieu of $150,000 bond.
Police arrested Cornell on April 20 after an undercover officer arranged for him to drive to Casper from Rawlins to meet a 7-year-old girl and her aunt. Cornell said he would teach the girl how to fight off a rapist. He would act as the rapist and the girl would be asked to touch him.
Cornell admitted to being a sex offender and told officers he hoped to have his name removed from the registry by showing law enforcement he could help them. He was convicted in 2005 in Michigan of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor, according to the Wyoming sex offender registry.
Cornell posted an advertisement for the purported training program on a Facebook page named “Casper Confessionals.” A woman called police on April 13 to report she saw the post and had been contacted by Cornell.
The woman said Cornell spoke of having children ages 5 to 10 touch him inappropriately.
On Saturday, Cpt. Steve Freel acted undercover by using the woman’s Facebook account in order to converse with Cornell.
Cornell said he wanted to conduct the training in the privacy of the woman’s home. He said he would come to Casper and requested money for gas and food. He also said he could stay for two days and could sleep in a guest room in their home.
On Monday, Cornell contacted the woman via Facebook to confirm their meeting. The woman said she was stuck at work and that Cornell should meet her sister at a sandwich shop. Cornell asked if he would be met by police because that had happened to him in the past.
He went to the shop and spoke with an undercover cop acting as the woman’s sister. He told the woman he would not have pants on during the training and that the girl would be asked to touch him inappropriately.
Cornell was arrested and interviewed at the police department. He initially denied posting the ad on Facebook but later stated he did post it. He said he sent Facebook messages to the woman about the training but that he had not planned on following through with any of it.

Governor Steve Bullock Signs Bill Making Scobey Soil Official State Soil of Montana
Friday, May 8th 2015
Bozeman, MT - Governor Steve Bullock on Thursday was joined by Sen. J.P. Pomnichowski, former Governor and soil scientist Brian Schweitzer, and students from Longfellow Elementary School, as he hosted a ceremonial signing of SB 176, making the Scobey Soil the official state soil of Montana. The bill was brought forward at the request of the students, and carried by Pomnichowski.
“Today we’re not only making the Scobey Soil the official state soil of Montana, we’re also showing these students that if they can make an impact on their state and community, regardless of how young they are,” Bullock said of the measure. “With future leaders of our state, like the students at Longfellow Elementary, our future is looking bright.”
In addition to bringing forward the bill, during the 2015 legislative session, students traveled to the capitol to lobby legislators and testify in committees in support of the measure. They also created a website (http://montanasoil.weebly.com/) to provide information about the soil and to collect petition signatures in support of the measure.
“These students worked long and hard for culmination of their lawmaking effort, and I commend them,” said Pomnichowski. “Because of their study, research, and diligence, as well as the guidance of a couple of crackerjack teachers, Debbie Nelson and Kristin Sigler, they have not only championed for our state a basic and solid new symbol but also have learned the intricacies of the state legislature first-hand. The Governor’s signature making it the law of the land was most gratifying for them and for me. School administrators, parents, and MSU scientists past and present deserve thanks for helping to shepherd this bill to completion.”
Scobey soil is most prevalent near Great Falls and the Hi-Line. It is known for its productivity for farming wheat and supporting ranching activities in Montana.

Montana Supreme Court Rejects Barry Beach Appeal
Wednesday, May 6th 2015
HELENA (AP) – The Montana Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a re-sentencing request from a man convicted of killing his high-school classmate in 1979 when they both were teenagers.
Barry Beach had argued that his 100-year prison sentence should be ruled unconstitutional after a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court decision barred mandatory life sentences for juveniles and ordered judges to consider the youth of an offender before imposing a life sentence. That ruling reflected recent scientific findings that young criminals have the capacity to change.
Beach was convicted of deliberate homicide in 1984 in the beating death of Kimberly Nees. Both Beach and Nees were 17-year-old high school students in Poplar when she was killed.
Beach has previously denied killing Nees, saying his confession was coerced. His cause has been taken up by hundreds of supporters, including Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, former Gov. Brian Schweitzer and former Republican U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns.
Beach argued in his latest petition that the 2012 U.S. Supreme Court decision makes his prison term unconstitutional because his trial judge did not consider Beach's youth when handing down the sentence.
The Montana high court ruled 4-3 that the federal ruling does not apply to people who were convicted before the 2012 decision. U.S. Supreme Court decisions are retroactive only if they create a substantive or watershed rule, which the 2012 decision did not do, Justice Beth Baker wrote in the majority opinion.
"Montana has always permitted a sentencer to consider a juvenile offender's youth when sentencing that offender to a term of years with no possibility of parole," Baker wrote in the majority opinion. The 2012 court ruling "merely goes a step further by requiring that consideration," she added.
Justices Patricia Cotter, Mike Wheat and Jim Shea dissented, saying Beach's case should be sent back to district court for a new sentencing hearing.
Beach attorney Pete Camiel says he is disappointed in Tuesday's ruling. Beach plans to file a new appeal when a new law expanding the governor's clemency powers takes effect on Oct. 1, Camiel said.
The new law gives the governor final say on clemency decisions, even if the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole denies a clemency application. The bill was driven in part by the board's denial of Beach's clemency last year, Beach's fourth application.
Gov. Steve Bullock had told the board that he wanted to consider Beach's application, and that Beach should have an opportunity for rehabilitation outside of prison.
The Montana Department of Justice, which prosecuted Beach, did not have a comment on Tuesday's decision, agency spokesman John Barnes said.
Counties won't get veto power over transfers of bison by the state of Montana as Gov. Steve Bullock on Monday vetoed Senate Bill 284.
The bill would have required approval of county commissioners before wild bison are released into a county. It would not have included transfers to tribal land.
It prompted a government powers debate at the Legislature.
In a letter explaining the veto, Bullock, a Democrat, said the bill would set a dangerous precedent by supplanting the state's management of fish and wildlife with county regulation.
"Montana's wildlife is held in trust for all citizens of the state, not just those citizens of a particular county," Bullock wrote.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks already must follow a comprehensive and public process in determining if and where brucellosis-free bison could be transplanted, Bullock said.
Transmission of brucellosis from bison to cattle was a concern that prompted the bill.
Steve Forrest, a Defenders of Wildlife senior representative for Rockies and Plains, said the bill would have undercut efforts to restore bison in Montana by giving politicians authority to block wild bison restoration instead of leaving decisions to FWP biologists.
"We thank Governor Bullock for listening to the majority of Montanans who strongly support bringing bison back to their historic home on the Great Plains," Forrest said.
Nancy Ereaux, secretary of the Montana Community Preservation Alliance, which supported the bill, said she was angry the governor "doesn't have respect for the senators and representatives that we have elected."
The bill passed the House by 60 percent, and the Senate by 64 percent, she said. A similar bill was presented in 2013 and it passed the House by 63 percent and the Senate by 64 percent, she said.
"This bill would not have taken any management powers away from the FWP for those counties that wanted wild bison, it would not have impacted the tribes and reservations that want to have bison, it simply would have allowed for our county commissioners to have been able to say yes or no whether wild bison would be elsewhere in their county," Ereaux said. "We don't want the government telling us what we have to live with."
The state is creating a long-term management plan for bison restoration in Montana. That could include transfers of bison to locations in the state where they've been gone for decades, which is opposed by ranching interests and supported by wildlife groups that support restoring bison to the plains.

South African man dies in Montana farm accident
Friday, May 1st 2015
PLENTYWOOD, Mont. (AP) — A 36-year-old South African man has died in a farm machinery accident in northeastern Montana.
Sheridan County Coroner David Fulkerson says Robert C. Terblanche died of asphyxiation Tuesday morning.
Fulkerson says Terblanche had connected a hay buster to a tractor and mistakenly reversed the hydraulic lines. When he disconnected a hose from a hydraulic cylinder, the bale hoist arms fell suddenly, pinning him down by the neck.
A co-worker, also from South Africa, discovered the incident a short time later and was able to extricate him, but he had already died.
Terblanche was working on a farm south of Redstone under an agency that placed them for work in the United States.
