SUBMITTED Krautter begins terms in House BY ion munm sun rrrrrsrmurvr The first week of the legislative ses- sion in Helena got underway this past week. I was excited to be sworn—in, along withso other freshman House members- and with family and friends present. While the session officially began on Monday, the unofficial start for me was the day before, as a bipartisan group of a dozen legislators and I gathered at the home of Chief Deputy Attorney General Jon Bennion to make sausage and visit. Sens. Daines and Tester, along with Attorney General Fox, each highlight ed parallels between making sausage and making laws. The takeaway for me was how one can start with very different ingredients or in lawmaking, different ideas, that taken in combi- nation, can still result in a good final product. The biggest issue addressed in our first week was a discussion on the rules that will govern the session in the House of Representatives. Concerns for why rules needed to be reformed were that current operating rules gave the Speaker of the House the opportunity to send bills he may not like to a committee of legislators he has discretion to appoint, where the bills can be killed and only resurrected to debate on the floor through the supermajority blast; voteof'iGO repre- sentatives. Concerns on the other side were that by reducing the supermajority to a simple majority, it would undermine the work of committees who hear tes- timony and also undermine the power: of the majority party. My priority was to support rules‘ that encouraged more fairness and transparency and discouraged thetype of dysfunction we seecoming out of , , Washington, DC. I also pushed for a compromise that would bring lawmak’i‘ ers together to begin the session. ' f I am pleased to report a resolution “ was reached on the rules reform that \ passed the House on a bipartisan 88:12 vote, and earned the support of all ,4}? Grille guards and heavy-duty bumper/grille guard combinations are seen on many of the vehicles in our area. These aftermarket parts are often installed as an attempt to keep headlights, grilles and bumpers in good condition in the event of a crash. Even though these modifications may seem like a good idea, they could compromise other aspects of your vehicle. When a vehicle is designed many factors are taken into consideration, with’ collision reaction being top priority. If a car, van or truck is in a frontend collision, the vehicle is designed to transfer the energy created through specific channels integrated into the vehicle. This way the energy entering the passenger compartment is reduced, minimizing injury. Airbag and seatbelt lock deployment features are based on the sensors in the front of the vehicle. The sensors are designed to detect an impact or loss of motion and determine if deployment is necessary to keep passengers safe. Heavy duty bumpers and grille guards may help save your grille or headlights, but they could also direct collision energy in to the passenger compartment or prevent your airbags from working. These parts are often mounted directly to the end of the frame. When you are in a collision, the energy created is no longer distributed throughout the upper and lpwer rails and sheet metal, but rather funnele'd down into just the frame rails. These rails are typically the strongest in your vehicle, but they aren't designed to collapse and absorb the energy like other areas that would have taken the brunt of the impact had you not , Rep.l.loel Krautter takes the oath of office. Republicans. , The new House rules;wi]l now more closely mirror the rules that have been in place in the Senate for more than 100 years. The composition of committees will no longer be at the sole discretion of the Speaker, individual members will have more influence on which commit» tee a bill is assigned to, and numerous other safeguards have been instituted to ensure more fairness and transpar- ency. The blast motion has been revised to match the number of legislators in the majority caucus. This means the number of votes necessary to success- fully remove a bill from committee will be 58 for this session, down from 60. This session, I will be serving on the 1 1, r Business and Labor, Fish, Wildlife and ' Parks, and Transportation committees.

When safety features are bypassed, the energy has to go somewhere and the path of least resistance is into the cab. Also, after a collision the damage may appear minor because the guard "saved" important parts, however, the frame can have extensive damage that will only be identified through measurement. Having this so-called “extra layer of protection" can affect airbag ‘ deployment. The collision sensors that deploy the airbags may not receive enough of the energy from the collision to cause deployment thus preventing this feature from even functioning. Airbags are programmed to deploy at just the right time in an attempt to stop forward momentum of the passenger. if the airbag timing is off and deploys late, the passenger will be well into the forward movement ' and could experience severe trauma , as the cover releases and the ba fills , g 7210 E.

While in high school Terry participated in high school rodeos as a saddle bronc rider. After gradu— ation, he was recruited to be one of numerous cowboys that traveled to upstate New York to work at the-Dude Ranchesthere running the horse barn and ro- deoing. Terry did this for two years, 1972 and 1973. On his second trip to New York, he met Patti Helwig.

Fink Dental Center is com- mitted to bein just such a provider, andJ its Solea laser is evidence of its in- vestment. Patients often experi— ence anxiety about den- tal work because many procedures involve nee— dles and loud drills. With the Solea laser, however, that is often no longer the case. Many proce— dures can now be per- formed more quickly, without anesthetic, and without bleeding or the need for sutures "For most patients, ro- cedures can be one without anesthetic, so there is no anxiegl about the shot or nee le, and there is no feeling numb aftenNards," said Dr. Fink. The Solea laser is an isotopic C02 dental laser that uses an ox— ygen-'lfi isotope and other modifications to release a specific wave- length. In plain English, that means the laser can be used on both hard (teeth) and soft (gums) tissue—something othef dental lasers cannot do. turned to Montana that fall, after the season was over, she followed short- ly after as he continued to pursue his bronc riding traveling around eastern Montana. They , were married on Nov. 30, 1974, living in Sidney for a short time, before mov- ing to Brockway to work on the Eisinger Cattle Ranch. When his father became ill, they moved back to the family farm north of Richey. While there they had two sons, Jesse and Jamie. In the springof 1979, the family moved to Sidney and for 40 years, Terry worked in the oil ' field for several different companies. In 1992, he was able to find a place outside of town to get back into his passion of horses. Terry broke and trained colts and after a while he turned to team‘ roping. He and his son, Jamie and families, were members of the Sidney Saddle Club. The next best thing to come for Terry, were his grandchildren, Ben, Abby, Belle, Nathan and Danny who he loved playing with and sharing his knowledge with. Terry retired in early October of 2018, with “The laser operates at a unique wavelen th that fires up to 10,00 pulses per second and that en— ergy creates a tempera ’anesthesia,’" Dr.- Fin said.
