Farm Bureau leaders tour agribusinesses The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Board of Directors toured several area agribusinesses in the Bemidji area on Tuesday, July 26. The leaders met with Senators Rod Skoe and John Carlson and Bdtrami County Commissioner Joe Vene. They toured Wells Technology, Norbord, Wilde Angus Ranch, Riviana Foods, Senator Skoe's farm and North Star Enterprises. "It is important as we do policy implementation that we as Farm Bureau leaders have a clear understanding of all the proactive people that agriculture has to offer to our communities," said MFBF President Kevin Paap. "Northern Minnesota is clearly on the leading edge of innovation in timber, beef, wild rice and horseradish production. Providing the necessary resources for this area to get their end products to the consumer is impor- tant." While in Bemidji, the MFBF Board of Directors also met for their board meet- ing on July 27. Minnesota Farm Bureau focusing on Farmers Families Food is comprised of 78 local Farm Bureau associations across Minnesota. Members make their views known to politi- cal leaders, state government officials, special interest groups and the general pub- lic. Programs for young farmers and ranchers develop leadership skills and improve farm management. Promotion and Education Committee members work with programs such as Ag in the Classroom and safety education for children. Join Farm Bureau today and sup- port our efforts to serve as an advocate for rural Minnesota, DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK Q: Finding a place to ride an ATV or other OHV machine takes a little research. Minnesota offers different riding opportuni- ties. Are there different lev- els of riding opportunities -- from novice to adventur- ous? And how can riders find the trail that fits their needs? A: Minnesota is using the standard ski hill symbols to identify level of difficulty. The symbols are: green circle - easy; blue square - moder- ate; and black diamond - technical or advanced. Most public OHV trails are green, with some blue levels avail- able. The Red Dot and Spider Lake systems are two sites that have some blue level trails. At this point, the only public riding area with black diamond level opportunities is the Iron Range OHV Recreation Area in Gilbert. It is important for riders to know their abilities and know their machines. Most of these trails do not provide alterna- tive routes; once the course is started, it must be finished. The most advance trails are generally one way as well. To fmd a list of OHV trails go to index.html. - Mary Straka, DNR OHV coordinator Area news briefs Fulda Free Press - Excessive heat and humidity during the past week caused many problems for livestock producers in Murray County. As the reported heat indexes July 18 neared the 120 degree mark, some animals died from heat stroke. Randy Holinka, Fulda, was one of many area farmers who reported death loss due to the heat and humidity. Lamberton News - Justin Thram has been hired by the City of Lamberton for street work, etc. He replaced Darryl Knutson who held the job for the past ten years. Darryl resigned for other employment. Slayton - Seventy-three farm families, one from each county, will be recognized as Farm Families of the Year at Farm Fest on Thursday, August 4, by the U of MN. In Murray county, the honor of Farm Family of the Year has been awarded to the Paul and Stacy Posthuma of Hadley. Tracy Headlight Herald - Friday, Audrey Koopman is end- ing a 35-year City Hall career that includes 28 years as city administrator. Koopman joined the staffat Tracy City Hall in the spring of 1976. Windom Citizen - Deputy Joe Saffert of the Cottonwood County Sheriff's Department was recently honored for his heroics that helped save the life of a local boy.

MN Farm Bureau Federtion Board of Directors in Bemidji. Submitted photo Corner By Digger Phelps As one might expect, the weather, although it has been rather hot, has resulted in a busy week at Rolling Hills. Lots of play is taking place in the cooler morning hours, and there are usually a few brave souls to play through the heat and humidity of the afternoon and evening. Vacations and other events are keeping most of the leagues from being complete, although they are all on the downward swing with August here. Leaders in the respec- tive leagues are as follows: Men's #1 Kjorness/ Dibble 44 1/2 Lindaman/ DeBates 44 1/2 Men's #2 Vosberg/ Beckman 46 Intermediate - Jans/Ourada 48 1/2 2-Lady - JoAnn Carlson - Gwen Thomazin 33 1/2 The club hosted a rain shortened event for the Southwest Minnesota Liquor Retailers last week, with a few less teams than normal, but generally, still a great event for the club. Most of the golfers who play Rolling Hills have noted that they have never seen this much water going over our dam this late in the year. Suffice it to say that this has left our course looking very lush, particularly for the month of July. Many of us can remember when every- thing was brown by this late in the season. Having a course in this condition defi- nitely helps to attract green fees from a variety of places. We commend all of those who have contributed to keeping our old cow pasture in such great condition. It's always nice to have bragging rights in this regard. We are glad to see Dwayne out and around the course as he has returned home. Dwayne's illness has baffled most of the medical commu- nity in two states, and we hope that there will be some resolution for him in the near future. Looking ahead to the month of August, the club will be hosting its largest event of the year with the annual ladies, cancer fund- raiser on Tuesday, August 9. This tournament has contin- ued to grow into a great event for the ladies, and also a tre- mendous fundraiser for a variety of local health care related entities. Jan Lindaman and the rest of the ladies have been working hard at organizing this event, so be sure to get your team entered if you haven't already done so. Other upcoming events: Monday, August 8 - Youth Open Saturday, August 13 -Parent/Child/Relative Tourney Tuesday, August 16 Ladies Club Tourney Both the Youth Open and the Parent/Child/Relative event are open to the public. Call the clubhouse or stop in to register in advance for any of these events. The Youth Open is usually run by age groups, and the Parent/ Relative event is handi- capped.
