News from North Dakota

The things you learn....
North Dakota's legislature has been looking at allowing conservation easements of differing lengths... So far, it's not looking too good.
From the Grand Forks Herald round-up of legislative activity...
" HB1472: Conservation easements. (Rep. Scot Kelsh, D-Fargo; Sen. Tim Mathern, D-Fargo) Voted down in the House (74-15). Changes laws about conservation easements to allow easements of more than 99 years for land in counties contiguous to the Red River, Missouri River, Lake Sakakawea or Lake Oahe."
And then there were these non-trust items that may only interest me.
"SCR4021: Resolution on Cuban travel. (Sen. Bob Stenehjem, R-Bismarck; Rep. Berg) Senate passed Feb. 11; pending in House agriculture committee. Urges Congress to allow U.S. travel to Cuba and to allow direct banking transfers for the purchase of U.S. made products by Cuba. The Legislature notes it "is anticipated" that North Dakota sales of ag products to Cuba "could surpass $37.8 million annually and provide employment for more than 1,000 individuals."
"SCR4017: Resolution on CAFTA and sugar. (Sen. Russell Thane, R-Wahpeton; Rep. Belter) Adopted Feb. 8; pending in House agriculture committee. Urges Congress to block the Central American Free Trade Agreement until there is a "guarantee" that the "domestic sugar industry will not suffer economic harm" as a result of it."
"HB1492: Hemp seed repository. (Rep. David Monson, R-Osnabrock; Sen. Erbele) Passed House (87-3). Senate committee hearing Feb. 24. Specifies that NDSU researchers can conduct baseline research "including production and processing in conjunction with the research centers of the state." It says the center may collect "feral hemp seed stock and develop appropriate adapted strains of industrial hemp which contain less than 3/10 of one percent of tetrahydrocannabinol in the dried flowering tops."
"HB1331: Organic weed control. (Rep. Brandenburg; Sen. Erbele) Failed (1-91) in House. Would have required county weed officers to spray herbicides, if necessary, to control weeds on organic farms where weed complaints are verified."
So that's Si to Cuba, No to CAFTA, you betcha to hemp (if it doesn't have too much THC) and organic farms stay organic, even if they have weeds.
And back the the trusts for a moment... Andrea Erickson is the new state director for Wyoming for The Nature Conservancy.
This nice write-up in the Casper Tribune notes the big change from her previous job.. a decade working for conservation in Central America. And hey Jon Christensen, Ms. Erickson also likes "the radical center".

Hey Pat,

And greetings to Andrea Erickson too. From her story, it sounds like there are many paths to the "radical center."

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
