You must obtain an application for a duplicate license from the Game and Fish Department - by calling (701) 328- 6300 or printing it off the website at gf.nd.gov - or from a county audi- tor.

A committee will be formed and the matter discussed, with Jo Kittleson of the seniors' group, and it will also be determined if funding is available for the relocation. Kittleson was reached after the meeting, and said no decisions have been made, and she declined to comment further. Also discussed was the removal of the light/emergency siren pole at the ice skating rink and the reinstal- lation of the light onto the warming room building. The city of Beach is looking into re-establishing the alley behind the Rcycling Center. Farmers Union Oil is also looking into the use of the alley to allow access for an additional truck bay.

Wheat quality reports available through Wheat Commission Quality reports on the 2010 U.S. hard red spring wheat and northern grown durum crops are now avail- able through the North Dakota Wheat Commission. The reports detail physical attributes and milling performance, plus dough mixing and bread baking properties for the spring wheat crop and pasta processing traits for the durum crop. Buyers around the world are anxious to receive information on new crop quality in order to better plan their purchasing decisions. The crop quality reports are reliable sources of information for U.S. wheat buyers and one of the longest standing marketing tools used by the Commission and U.S. Wheat Associates to educate customers around the world. "It is valuable information for us to have, in order to emphasize our quality advan- tages each year and help buyers adjust to any notable quality shifts due to growing season extremes," explains Jim Peterson, NDWC Marketing Director. "The reports have become a renowned and reli- able source of valuable information that buyers look forward to receiv- ing each year." U.S. Wheat Associates uses the information in its annual crop quality seminars conducted across Asia and Europe in November, and with other key customers throughout the year. The reports are based on harvest samples collected by the Agricultural Statistics Service in the four-state region and tested by the North Dakota State University Plant Sciences quality laboratories. Spring wheat samples are gathered from North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota and Minnesota, rep- resenting 92 percent of the nation's The 2010 spring wheat crop is the third largest on record and it produced a record yield. The crop grades a No. 1 Northern Spring with stronger than average test weights and very low levels of damaged kernels. spring wheat production. Durum samples are collected from North Dakota and Montana, covering 80 percent of the nation's durum pro- duction in 2010. The 2010 spring wheat crop is the third largest on record and it produced a record yield. The crop grades a No. 1 Northern Spring with stronger than average test weights and very low levels of damaged kernels. At 13.7 percent, average protein is improved over 2009, but still lower than average due to record yields. Average vitre- ous kernel counts are similar to last year and average falling numbers are slightly higher. Flour extraction is higher than last year, while dough mixing strength and loaf vol- umes remain similar. Although slightly weaker than traditional HRS quality, the crop is seeing good demand from abroad due to its high grade profile and improved protein content, and reduced avail- ability of quality in competitor countries. The northern U.S. durum crop produced record yields and a sec- ond year of strong production. The crop held to a No. 1 Hard Amber Durum, despite a prolonged, wet harvest period, but it is showing a much wider than normal distribu- tion in quality. Test weights are down from last year, but similar to the five-year average. Vitreous ker- nel counts and falling number val- ues are lower due to the challenging harvest conditions and damaged kernels are higher. Pasta quality factors are reflective of the weath- er's impact on the crop with lower color scores and reduced cooked firmness, but semolina yields are higher. With larger than average production in 2010 and large carry- over supplies from 2009, buyers should still find good quantities of high quality durum to meet their needs, but can expect stronger price premiums for quality compared to recent years. The 2010 hard red spring and durum wheat crop quality reports are posted on the North Dakota Wheat Commission's web site at www.ndwheat.com or are available in hard copy upon request at 701- 328-5111 or by emailing ndwheat@ndwheat.com.
