One now adorns a por- tion of a wall that separates the lounge from the restaurant area. The other two will be put in at the front and registration desks. Now comprising the fireplace in the renovated building are bricks that were once part of the previous state capitol building, which burned down in 1930. The bricks were pur- chased by Harold Schafer, and stored away. The dining area seats up to 105. whereas the previous din- ing room could only accommodate around 55. For TRNP. junior ranger badges will be offered at both the North and South units. These are Offered in many of the national parks, and to get one, a child must go to the visitor center and pick up a booklet, com- plete the activities in the booklet, participate in a ranger program, then go on a hike through that particular park. When that has been completed, the youngster then takes the booklet back to the visitor center where a ranger will check it, then have the child repeat a ranger pledge, and the child then becomes a junior ranger and is presented a badge. The Chateau deMores was repre- sented by Site Supervisor Dee Linn, who informed the media of the activities that will be available at the Chateau. Among the many will be a Seniors Tour on Tuesdays at 2:30, and children's tours on Wednesdays at 2:30. "Time Travelers." portray- ing servants from the Chateau. appear at these times to give the vis- itors an added flavor to the era in which the Marquis and Marquise were here in the 1880s. Another popular program, History Alive!, of the State Historical Society of North Dakota, has been going for approxi- mately 12 years. Another program, called "Murder and Mayhem in Medora" has been running for about five years and is located in the Billings County Courthouse Museum, in the courtroom upstairs. Previously known as "The Trial of The Marquis deMores" the drama depicts the trial of the Marquis when he was accused of murdering cowboy Riley Luffsey in t883, Something new this year involves the Footsteps Through Historic Medora tour. Although "Footsteps" isn't new, this year this program will be able to be used on visitors' I-pods. This can be used through the town of Medora at the convenience and time of the visi- tors. They can walk or drive through the town at their leisure, or do part of the tour one day, and the next part the following day. Because of this option, visitors will also be able to come and tour the town of Medora during the winter from the comfort and warmth of their cars. Elk (Continued from Page 1) "Why shouldn't hunters be able to do some hunting on a regulated basis and take home the meat?" Feinstein said. The position of the National Park Service has been that volun- teers can be used within the park for wildlife management, includ- ing the elk. Hunting, however, isn't allowed under current federal law. Park Superintendent Valerie Naylor couldn't be reached for direct comment by the newspaper's Monday deadline regarding the sta- tus of the proposed plan. The Park Service's Elk ~EManagement, Plan and n~imnmental Impact Statement is to address the increase of the park's elk population from the 47 reintro- duced to the South Unit of the park in 1985, to the approximately 900 that are there today. The public comment period on the plan and EIS ended on March 19. The alternatives listed in the draft plan include: - No action. Existing manage- ment practices would be followed and no new management actions would be implemented. - Direct reduction with firearms to reduce and maintain elk numbers. - Reducing and maintaining the herd using roundups and killing at offsite locations. - Reducing and maintaining the herd using chronic wasting disease testing and translocation (roundup and relocation of animals to willing recipients outside the park). - Increasing elk hunting opportu- nities outside the park, coordinated with state actions to reduce and maintain the elk population. - Fertility control of female elk as a maintenance tool only. This is an unproven technology that does not currently meet criteria set forth in the plan/EIS and could only be implemented when and if it meets those criteria and in combination with another method used for initial reduction, according to the Park Service's draft plan. Once the plan/EIS is finalized, one of the alternatives, or a combi- nation of actions from multiple alternatives, would become the elk management plan and guide future actions~ for a period of 15 years or until conditions necessitate the plan be revised.

Being issued a license also may mean that a client's insurance provider would cover the therapy. Planert said she studied at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and earned her master's degree. Her line of therapy can involve working with people of all ages, and includes using creative arts." "The idea is to use creative arts - drawing, music, rhythm - to help an individual express fully who they are - to access their unconscious energy," said Planert. "Creative arts provide a "way in.'" The therapy would mostly be for people looking to alleviate emotional pain, but it could also be used for those with physical pain. she said. This type of therapy originated at the time of World War II. Marian Chance, movement psychotherapy founder, used the therapy with veter- ans who were in shock. Chance would take on their body expres- sions and brought in music and Cheryl Planert worked with them until they felt they could trust her. Planert said she expects she can obtain clients on her own or through referrals from health providers in the area. She said she would be able to work with a range of diagnoses, such as head trauma, depression and attention-deficit hyperactivity disor- der.
