SIDNEY HERALD Around our orea WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2016 SA Coun commissioners express opinions regarding Intake Diversion Dam debate BY gILL VANDER MIlE SIDNEY HERALD Like a lot of area residents, the Rich- land County commissioners are very concerned about the future of the Intake Diversion Dam. In fact, Commissioner Duane Mitchell attended each of the three public hear- ings regarding the diversion and the pallid sturgeon. 'If common sense prevails, then this (the bypass) should work." Loren Young Richhnd Courtly commissioner ^ "If it was based on attendance, I would say the farmers won," Mitchell noted. Mitchell said he heard people describe the environmentalists as obstructionists. He went on to say that a study was done on a relative's property near Intake and there wasn't enough wind for a wind turbine there. "That has to be one of the highest hills in the Intake area," Mitchell said. Mitchell also pointed about how the ca- nal is beneficial to much wildlife includ- ing ducks, geese and eagles. "The problem is we're removing God from everything," Mitchell said. "If you are Darwinism, you are supporting crea- tures more than the Creator. That's the problem." Richland County Commissioner Loren Young hopes a decision is made that doesn't destroy the area's economy. "I don't think anybody wants the pallid sturgeon to be extinct," Young said. "But the next on the endangered species list might be the farmers if the irrigation disappears." Young added, "The underlying idea is for the special interest groups to control the water. Down the road, I think we will have bigger fights regarding water than oil." Mitchell said when the judge makes his decision regarding the diversion, he hopes the area will have three busloads at the hearing. He was pleased that there were few protesters at the meeting in Billings last week. He commended James Brower, Lower Yellowstone Irigation Project man- ager, for a great effort in organizing the local effort. "if common sense prevails, then this (the bypass) should work," Young said. NEW WATFORD CITY POST OFFICE SET Designs are under way for a new post office in Wafford The new location looks to open in the spring of 2017 following construc- tion. The post office's current location is 4,290 square feet while the new loca- tion, where S & S Motors is now, has approximately 9,000 square feet. This new location is capable of housing three service counters, 10 deliv- ery routes and 2,976 boxes and parcel lockers, the news release said. "This new post office is another example of our commitment to ensuring the residents and business- es of the Bakken region are well-served," acting: Dakotas district manager Doug Stephens said last August. Brent Sanford, S & S Mo- tors owner and Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, is already tran- sitioning the dealership's business. Longtime employee Ryan Hansen is taking the op- eration's services aspects to a separate shop about a half-mile north of S & S Motors' current location. Sanford will retain the dealership license and take sales north as well. -- McKenzie County Farmer, Warlord City RAY GROCERY GETS NEW LIFE Ray's grocery store is getting a major face lift thanks to a partnership between a new owner and the The former owners, Aldean and Cheryl Lan- Hot dog eating contest BILL VANDER WEELE I SIDNEY HERALD Contestants eat down hot dogs during the eating contest at Reynolds Market Saturday afternoon.

With the street ripped out and waiting for new pavement and the side- walks about to be removed and replaced, too, many retailers are directing traf- fic through back doors off the alleys. PrDject Manager Ryan Rostad of Mayo Construc- tion said that while road access around town should be improving, sidewalk removal could create ob- stacles for folks looking to get around the downtown area. It's all part of a multi- million dollar street improvement project that focuses on rebuilding most of Main Street but also touches most other parts of town. STANLEY PARK SCULPTURE PLACED A year after unveiling the clay model of "War Mules" at High Prairie Bronze Studio, Arnie Ad- dicott's new bronze statue has been placed in its new home at Veterans Park in Stanley.
