AI2 SIDNEY HERALD,WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2, 20l9 NEWS ELKS LODGE FROM PAGE1 also found a home in the Elks kitchen, offering lunch and dinner Tuesday through Friday from 11 am. ~— 8 pm. Moe’s is owned and operat- ed by Eric and Keri Brown along with Cheryl Olson, who lease the kitchen from the Elks. “Everything seems to be going well. Everyone who comes in seems to enjoy their food,” Laqua said. Keri said the idea for an— other barbecue restaurant came from her and her hus- band being pestered by old customers. “Everybody just asked us to open up again and here we are,” Keri said. The couple operated a barbecue restaurant in Fairview for about a year in 2012, but Eric has been cooking the saucy cuisine for 15 years and Keri for about 10 years. Keri said the restaurant has been busy Ownes of Me’s Sokin’Grill CIMOIson, left, and eri Brown. operate out the Elks Lodge kitchen Tuesday through Friday, 11 am. p.m.The restaurant and Elks bar is open to the public. since they opened about two months ago. “We didn’t expect it to be like this,” Keri said. “On a good day we serve 75-100.” The barbecue tradition goes back a long ways with Keri. “I’ve been cooking with my mom since I was little,” she said. “We have what we call our ‘secret sprinkle,’ our own barbecue sauce.” “The secret is in the sauce,” Olson said. While Keri and Eric man the meat, Olson kicks in homemade goodies, like her pecan pie. The restaurant provides meals for many meeting groups, includ- ing Kiwanis, Lions, ONEok breakfast, Sun Well Services and of course Elks meetings. Moe’s caters events of all sizes, offers take-out orders as well and is child-friendly. Moe’s Smokin’ Grill is open to the public. People do not have to be Elks members to patronize the restaurant or bar. Keri said when dart and pool leagues start-up, they will be there to serve the food. In addition to the new restaurant, the Elks Lodge also hired new manag- er Missy Letherman, who comes equipped with years of bar/restaurant manageri— al experience. Letherman said the restau- rant and bar are mutually beneficial, as Moe’s doesn’t need a liquor license since the Elks has one and now they can offer patrons food.

BILL FROM PAGET because it was financed by us, but they later deter- mined that was an error, be» cause the project is not and has never been a federal project. It required a federal nexus to receive power use power rates.” Similarly, Kinsey was built in 1937 by the Farm Security Administration, Conner said. “It was briefly a Pick Sloan Missouri Basin Pro- gram Unit, but in 1945, the Kinsey project purchased all the project facilities, and it was basically a non-feder- al project at that point,” he said. However, Raymond Bell, president of Sidney Water Users, said that farmers whose lands were being flooded by the creation of various dams in the region were to be given a high pri- ority in Pick Sloan when it was set up in 1944. “The trade‘off was that if the Bureau and the Corps of Engineers eat up all the farmland putting in these dams, the tradeoff was to give the farmers this rea- sonable irrigation power, or Pick-Sloan Power," he explained. The arrangement was laid out by Congress in the 1944 Flood Plain Acts and irrigation districts like Sid- ney Water Users, Kinsey Irrigation, and the Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Proj- ect have been receiving low- cost power under the Pick Sloan umbrella ever since. Lower Yellowstone is still receiving power from the group, since it has a dam that is owned by the Bureau and the Corps of Engineers at Glendive, but it is being asked to pay higher rates. The jump in rates is a sepa- rate issue that’s also being worked on with Montana’s Congressional delegation. Bell said Bureau officials told Sidney Water Users and Kinsey as well that it would take a new act of Congress to keep the irrigation dis- tricts in the power group past 2020. Otherwise, the contracts will expire. If that happens, the districts are likely to face an astronomi- cal rate increase for power. . “Passage of this bill will have no negative impact on any other user of Pick Sloan power,” Daines said during testimony about his bill in committee. “(The irrigation districts) have had use of this power for more than 70 years.” Rep. Greg Gianforte has also introduced companion legislation in the House re- garding the matter, which is of vital importance to about 85 farming families in the Miles City area, who are part of Kinsey Irrigation, and 45 families who are part of Sidney Water Users. The latter serves 4,800 acres of cropland. About half of those acres are dedi- cated each year, depending on crop rotations, to rais- ing sugar beets for Sidney Sugars. I .E‘Without the SWU and their high-quality crop, the factory could be forced to close, due to lack of sugar " beet acres,” Agricultural Manager Duane Peters and General Manager David Garland wrote to Mon- tana’s Congressional Dele- gation in a letter of support for the legislation. “This results in hundreds of em- ployees losing their jobs, and forcing them to move from Sidney.” Bell said Sidney Water Users and Kinsey have been fighting the issue for two years now, trying to stay in the power group. “This has been a big ex- pense for us,” he added. “We have hired a lobbyist . 10 s.
