A Teddy Bear Picnic will also be held on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Teddy Bear Picnic will be held on the lawn of the Visitor Center by the Maltese Cross Cabin in the park's South Unit. There will be stories about Teddy Bear lore. Those traveling without their bears are welcome to attend and take part in the fun. There are also opportunities for kids to play games and win prizes. "The final fee free weekend is a great way to end a beautiful summer before the kids return to school," said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. "The Teddy Bear Picnic is an added bonus for families." Park staff invites visitors to participate in the daily interpretive programs offered in both the North and South units throughout the weekend. Families can learn more about the park by bor- rowing a "Family Fun Pack" at the South Unit Visitor Center. The park also offers scenic driv- ing, wildlife watching, hiking and camping. Regular camping fees will be charged. The National Park Service has offered three fee-free weekends this summer to encourage people to travel to and enjoy national parks. Agency wants historic designation for former ranch BISMARCK - The U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service have announced the nomination of 11,892 acres of Theodore Roosevelt's former Elkhom Ranch as a National Historic District. The ranch is considered by many to be the "Cradle of Conservation." Roosevelt spent some of his most formative years in the Badlands of western North Dakota: hunting, ranching and observing the natural environment especially in the vicinity of the Elkhorn Ranch headquarters. Throughout the United States, there are over 13,594 designated historic districts, with 36 in North Dakota. The Elkhom Ranch is of national significance and a North Dakota treasure, the Forest Service says. ,I am both proud and honored to be able to nominate these lands as a National Historic District in west- em North Dakota as a tribute to Theodore Roosevelt's legacy," Dave Pieper, Dakota Prairie Grasslands supervisor, said in a pre- pared statement. Acknowledgment of the Elkhom Ranch as a National Historic District is a prestige designation only, and does not place any further restrictions on the property, accord- ed the high-level of professional support from local vendors and service personnel along with the fine folks of the community." A compressor station is a facility that provides energy tO n~o-ve fiatotaI "gas within a pipeline by increasing the pressure of the gas at the discharge side of the facility compared to the intake side. Said another way, it's a "booster" station that keeps the natural gas flowing in a natural gas pipeline. "Rick Noll helped us get the site leveled up and we have had, a lot of local contractors," said Chris Sargent, project engineer from Glendive. Mont. The pipeline consists of over 3,300 miles of transmission "pipeline and 32 compressor sta- tions. The Golva Compressor Station houses two "3.550 horsepower Caterpillar engines. The engines mn on natural gas. "The entire project is over a $10 million proj- ing to the Forest Service. Livestock grazing, minerals development and recreation use will continue. Any changes in land management will be addressed in the current Land and Resource Management Plan amendment process. The two National Historic District nominating criteria are con- servation (including sustained yield) and a connection to a famous person. Since the Elkhom Ranch nomi- nation involves only federal land and a willing private owner, the designation process does not require public comment, according to the Forest Service. Interested parties can however contact any involved federal or state agency, such as the Dakota Prairie Grasslands or Theodore Roosevelt National Park or the North Dakota State Historic Protection Agency to register support or non-support. The timing of the process varies according to complexity of the nomination. The Elkhorn Ranch nomination process began in October 2008, and it should take about a year for a final determina- tion of eligibility as a National Historic District, according to the Forest Service. Station (Continued on Page 8) ect that will add one permanent employee and existing employees out of Baker, Mont. With all the automated controls, that is all that it takes to run from day to day," said Linn. The station is part of a project to increase delivery volumes on the Grasslands Pipeline seg- ment of the Williston Basin Interstate Pipeline Company system. The Grasslands Pipeline mns from northeastem Wyoming to westem North Dakota (253 miles). When first put into service in December 2003. the Grasslands Pipeline had an initial capacity of 80-thousand dekatherm equivalent of gas per day (Mdk/d). Through incrememal expansions over the years, the pipeline was expanded to its current capacity of 138 Mdk/d. This summer, an additional 75 Mdk/d of capacity will be added, bringing the pipeline segment to ultimate capacity. In addition to Golva, the expansion will be / completed entirely through the addition of a new compression station along the pipeline located in Alzada, Mont., and an additional compressor engine unit will be installed near Manning. "In total, we are adding nearly 19,000 horse- power of compression," said Rasmussen. "This is the largest single compressor constmction project in company history." At the Manning station, Rasmussen said they would be installing the largest reciprocating engine in the company's compressor fleet. It's a 4,750 horsepower unit that will complement the existing two units that prodUce a total of 4;000 horsepower. "The Golva compressor station will affect Golden Valley County, Lone Tree Township, Lone Tree School District No. 6, and the Golva Fire District for taxing entities," said Ceil Stedman, county auditor. country who offered comments and invite them to review our preferred alternative and let us know what they think." The preferred altemative deci- sion is the product of a public plan- ning process that generated nearly 300 comments on a draft environ- mental impact statement on the elk management plan between Dec. 17, 2008, and March 19, 2009. The preferred alternative reflects an analysis of those comments, as well as costs, efficiency, and envi- ronmental impacts and uses options contained in Altemative B (direct reduction with firearms by federal employees and skilled volunteers), Alternative C (roundup and killing), and Alternative D (roundup and translocation), according to the NPS. "The importance of public par- Elk (Continued from Page 1) "The importance of public participa- tion throughout this process-can- not be overstated."

"We are getting closer to a final decision on elk reduction, one that will be reached only after we thoroughly evaluate the public comments we receive on this preferred altema- CL S DON'T MISS OUT!

The fair committees are plan- ning several new attractions. First, a committee headed by Morris Douglas and Ben Thompson has set up a trophy program. This year several nice trophies will be awarded in the various divisions at the fair. Trophies ordered include one for the champion pen of fat cat- tle, one for crops sweepstakes, one for grand champion pure- bred bull, one for grand cham- pion heifer, a championship sheep award and four trophies in the 4-H division. The 4-H trophies include one for horsemanship, one for the trac- tor driving contest, one for sheep showmanship, and one for swine showmanship. Another feature this year will be a horse show. At present a com- mittee headed by E. E. Ueckert is working very hard laying the groundwork for a horse show. Amateur hour to be held Because the amateur hour proved to be such a success last year at the annual county fair, the entertainment committee has decided to hold another again this year on the Golden Valley Fair dates, Sept. 11-12. The program will be held in the Legion Hall Saturday night, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m., but this year there will be two group classifications: those under 15 years of age, and those over 15. There will be three prizes for each group, 1st, $20; 2nd, $15; and 3rd, $10; plus $1 for each con- testant that enters. Music for the dance that follows will be fur- nished by the Starlighters. Judges for the amateur hour will be Howard Mack of Golva, Bill Hasselstrom of Sentinel Butte, and Adin Miller of Beach. Neighbors aid farmer Peter Wirtzfeld was pleasantly surpris~ed whe~ he returned hon~ from the hospital recently to find his hay field cut and stacked, and his corn cultivated.
