Medora hosts All-Horse Flag Day Parade June 14 Medora, ND - The llth Annual All-Horse Flag Day Parade is scheduled for Thursday, June 14, 2012, in Medora. The parade will begin at 5:00 p.m. and will feature only horses or horse-drawn vehi- cles. "Special entries already commit- ted to participate in the parade include a number of current North Dakota rodeo royalty," said event coordinators Jodi Johnson and Codi Miller. They said no pedestrians will be allowed in the parade because of safety reasons. Patriotism is the theme for the event, headlined by the United States flag, which will be carried by one or more rodeo queens and the Medora Riding Stables. The Medora Riding Stables will also carry flags representing all divisions of the United States armed forces and the POW/MIA flag. In addition, numerous saddle clubs and ranch riders are expected to join the parade. During the parade, all riders will be announced as they pass the Rough Riders Hotel. Sponsors for the parade are Nodak Mutual, Highlands Engineering, Whiting Oil and Gas, Legal Edge Solutions, Medora Chamber of Commerce, Medora Area Convention and Vistors Bureau. Individuals who want to partici- pate in the parade or seek more information should contact coordi- nators Johnson or Miller at the Medora Area Convention and Visitors Bureau by email: bcm@midstate.net or jodij@medora.com; or by phone at 701-623-4829. There is no charge to enter the parade, however, pre-reg- istration is required. The All Horse Flag Day Parade is hosted yearly by the Medora Chamber of Commerce. Threat of exotics in state waters continues Silver carp are the latest threat in the ongoing campaign to stop the introduction and spread of aquatic nuisance species in North Dakota, which features 360-plus fishing waters. However, silver carp aren't the only ANS threat in a state that is fortunate not to have big manage- ment problems with new or expand- ed exotic populations. Robert Timian, North Dakota Game and Fish Department enforcement division chief, said ANS violations brought more warnings than citations in the past, but after years of informing the public about the harmful conse- quences of aquatic nuisance species, things will change. "Warnings are good during the information phase, but then you need to take direct action," Timian said. "Citations send a message that we are serious about the introduc- tion and spread of aquatic nuisance species in North Dakota." Current law states all water must be drained from watercraft prior to leaving a water body, including livewells. This means fish, includ- ing bait, cannot be transported in a livewell containing water. However, bait buckets and/or any container of five gallons or less in volume can be used to transport legal live baitfish or other bait in water. All other fish species may not be held in water and/or trans- ported in bait buckets/containers when away from a water body. Transportation of fish in or on ice is allowed. In addition, no aquatic vegeta- tion, or parts thereof, shall be in or on watercraft, motors, trailers and recreational equipment when out of water. Time out of the water needed to remove aquatic vegetation at the immediate water access area is allowed. All built-in structures to boats, including livewells and bait com- partments, and containers (bait buckets) used to transport legal live bait, must also be free of aquatic vegetation. Administration to h In response to President Obama's call to expand opportunities for summer employment for young people and connect them with the great outdoors, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality Nancy Sutley today highlighted summer work opportunities for more than 20,000 young people, ages 15-25, in national forests, national parks, wildlife refuges and other public lands. Salazar and Sutley are kicking off the summer work season at an event in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in California, where they are being joined by members of the Los Angeles Conservation Corps and the California Conservation Corps, representing the many corps part- ners working with USDA and DOI to provide summer work and train- ing opportunities for young people. On the East Coast, USDA Under Secretary for Natural Resources and the Environment Harris Sherman and U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell kicked off the season at an event celebrating volunteers and other partners who are critical to connecting Americans to the great outdoors. They were joined by rep- resentatives from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to announce, along with Salazar and ire 20,000 people Sutley, $3.7 million in competitive grants for 20 projects across the c o u n t r y http://www.doi.gov/news/pressrelea ses/loader.cfm?csModule=security/ getfile&pageid=297499 that will put more than 500 young people from diverse backgrounds and experiences to work on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands and national forests and grasslands this summer work season. This competitive grant initiative is being funded with $1.4 million from the BLM and the Forest Service, matched by $2.3 million raised by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation from private partners such as Wells Fargo through the America's Great Outdoors: Developing the Next Generation of Conservationists ini- tiative. "President Obama's call to expand summer job opportunities for young people is helping us engage and train the next generation of natural resource professionals and build a workforce that repre- sents all of America," said Salazar, who is visiting a youth conservation corps that is conducting trail and habitat restoration in the Santa Monica Mountains. "These first experiences building trails, clearing out hazardous fuels, or cleaning up rivers not only equip young people with skills for a new career, but can Administration (Continued on Page 16) Memorial Day Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those servicemen and women who have given their lives for our country.
