As in the past, the Health Fair will be open to the public from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. About two dozen health care, insurance and law enforcement rdlated organizations and others will have booths at the event: Local businesses and individuals are sponsoring a continental break- fast of juice, coffee and snacks for those attending the Health Fair. Local businesses, as well as organi- zations exhibiting at the Health Fair, have donated items for draw- ibgs to be held through the event. The Comer Market is sponsoring a poster contest for grades K-6 with the theme of "Safety Is No Accident." The posters will be exhibited at the Health Fair, and prizes are to be given for first, sec- ond and third-place entries in each of the grades from kindergarten il Sen John Hoeven. RLN.D., will host a meeting on April 28 in Bismarck to meet with leaders of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to urge the agency to launch a new study updating esti- mates of recoverable oil reserves in the Williston Basin. The meeting is the result of a hearing of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. at which Hoeven enlisted the support of U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to launch a new study. The USGS is an agency of the Interior Department. Hoeven asked Salazar to "lend your weight and your support" to the effort. "I think it's a real air through sixth. No appointments are necessary and there is no charge for admis- sion; For more information contact the Wibaux County Extension Office at (406) 796-2486. Glendive Medical Center will be providing the blood profiles, which will be available from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. (No appointments are neces- sary). The blood profiles will include a CBC (complete blood count - without WBC differential), lipid profiles with "good" and "bad" cholesterol, a TSH thyroid test, and the chemistry profile. The cost of the blood profile will be $29. For accurate results, blood profiles do require a 12-hour fast- ing period. A person should not eat or drink anything except water 12 hours prior to testing - with the exception of people on prescribed medications who will need to take ,their medication. Males may choose an optional PSA (a screen- ing test to detect prostate disease) for an additional $25. opportunity," Hoeven said. Salazar said he agreed and he would follow up on the study. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the Bismarck State College Energy Center with a general ses- sion to set the stage for this initia- tive. The remainder of the day will be devoted to technical discus- sions between USGS scientists and the geologists and engineers from various producers. Brenda Pierce, coordinator for the Energy Resources Program at the USGS, and her team of engi- neers and geologists will be on hand to hear evidence from oil Study (Continued on Page 8) BLM to hold forums on Bureau of Land Management Director Bob Abbey says the BLM will hold a series of regional public forums in late April to further discuss the use of hydraulic fracturing tech- niques to stimulate natural gas pro- duction on federal lands. The sessions will be held in Bismarck; Little Rock, Ark.; and Denver. These locations will help to highlight increased regional interest in natural gas development on federal lands and other areas where the BLM has responsibility for mineral leasing, according to the BLM. Details regarding the exact date, time and location of the Bismarck meeting haven't yet been set. Environmentalists have been rais- ing concerns that the fracturing process can be detrimental to ground- water. "These forums will help inform BLM as we Work closely with indus- try, the states, other federal agencies and the public to develop a way for- ward on natural gas so that the United States can s/ffely and fully realize the benefits of this important energy resource," Abbey said. "The Interior Department has a responsibility to study the potential impacts and to identify commonsense, best manage- ment practices that should be used in fracturing operations on public lands to ensure that this development is car- fled out in the right way and in the fight places." The regional forums will build upon a forum the Department of the Interior hosted in November 2010 in Washington D.C. on practices for hydraulic fracturing and will provide a more in-depth, technical review of natural gas development practices on public lands. Topics to be discussed will include best management practices, disclosure of the chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing fluids, well construction and integrity, production wastewater management and other techniques for protecting drinking water resources. Panelists will include experts from federal and state governments, indus- try, and environmental organizations that have been engaged in natural gas development issues. The BLM says s~ffely hamessing the nation's abundant natural gas resources is a vital component of tin America's energy portfolio and has the potential to power the U.S. econo- my for decades to come and reduce dependence on foreign oil. Natural gas development on feder- al lands has more than. doubled over the last 20 years, from 1.2 trillion cubic feet in fiscal year 1991 to near- ly 3 trillion cubic feet in 2010, In 2010, about 14 percent of domestical- ly produced natural gas came from onshore public lands, according to the ,BLM. The BLM issues leases for natu- ral gas development on lands man- aged by the BLM as well as lands managed by other federal agencies, such as the U.S. Forest Service. The BLM also manages the subsurface mineral interests in a number of areas where the surface is privately owned. The use of hydraulic fracturing in these areas has similarly increased in recent years. Prom candidates The Beach High School Prom will be held on April 9.
