(Photo by Renee Orluck) By Renee Orluck Correspondent BISMARCK - It's with hearts full of thankfulness and pride that the 2017 Buccaneer 9-man football sea- son has ended. The coaches and players invested most of three months in honing their skills, relationships and character. The quarterfinals weekend kicked off with captains Cole Erickson, Gunnar Farstveet, Trevor Losinski and Josiah Orluck heading down to Beach's Lincoln E!ementary School to address the students. There they encouraged the youngsters to work hard imd participate. Losinski also taught them a cheer. The afternoon brought on a pep rally led by volley- ball coach Marly Campbell and her senior girls. The pep band played the school song and the student body worked on a cheer. The volleyball girls were not the only fans at the game. The Bucs also received great community support and lots of extended family coming from miles away. Some grandparents from Devils Lake actually made it to eight of the games. One grandparent commented on the cohesion and ca- maraderie of the team. Another fan was impressed by how the team came up from the bottom of the rank- ing to be in the quarterfinals. The quarterfinals game did not turn out as the Buccaneers desired Bucs (Continued on Page 4) Above: Coach Mike Zier meets with the players during a time- out.

You should g et a winter survival kit, make a plan, and be informed, the National Weather Service in Bis- marck says. Keep a high level of sit- uational awareness by listening to the forecast every day, multiple times a day during changing or threatening weather. When snow, sleet, or freez- ing rain is in the forecast expect that it will negatively impact your day to day routine, and be ready when it does. Winter weather terminology A watch is issued when the risk of a hazardous winter weather event has increased, but its occurrence, loca- tion, and/or timing is still uncertain. Watches are issued a day or two, sometimes more, in advance of a possible event. A warning or advisory is issued when a hazardous winter weather event is occurring, is imminent, or has a high probability of occurrence. A warning is used when there is a threat to life or property. An advisory is for less serious conditions that cause inconvenience, and, if caution is not used, could lead to situations that may threaten life or property. ! !

Some bison form By Richard Volesky Editor/Reporter THEODORE ROOSEVELT NA- TIONAL PARK - A total of 441 bison were processed during a Na- tional Park Service roundup that was held the week of Oct. 15. A total of 144 bison were culled from the herd. The roundup is held every few years to reduce the size of the herd to : ~i help ensure there is adequate grazing for all of the animals within the fenced park. Bison that went through ~::,:~' the corrals in previous years had memory chips implanted, and those chips are linked to the animals' ge- netic and age information, said Amy McCann, TRNP roundup spokesper- son. I The bison that were removed went to various tribal governments. Receiving some of the animals was the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Na- tion, also known as the Three Affili- ated Tribes, to establish a new herd in the Twin Buttes area. On hand at the roundup was Cory Spotted Bear, a member of the Tribal Business Council. Spotted Bear said the plans in- cluded receiving five to 10 bison to be placed in a 160-acre fenced graz- ing area. The area would be ex- panded to several thousand acres are the herd grows. The MHA Nation also has an established herd in the Mandaree area. "The goal is to run a grass-fed op- eration," said Spotted Bear. He said the idea is to eventually provide bison meat to schools and for a program for the elderly. It's hoped that tribal members can get away from being overloaded with processed foods, which could help eradicate illnesses.
