Flickertail Museum’s Cook Car Is Renovated

The cook car at Flickertail Village & Museum was recently moved to a new location within the grounds, and renovated. The Craft families, including: Annie Craft; Marshall and Jane Craft; Patty and Dave Neset and Gary and Darla Craft, were proactive in seeing what needed to be done to restore the cook car, and made all of the arrangements needed to carry the project through to the end. Melvin Craft, husband and father of the contributors, had originally worked on restoring the cook car when it was initially moved to the museum in 1982. At that time, Melvin’s goal was to have it resemble what the threshing crew cooking facilities may have looked like in years past. With the recent renovations made to it, the cook car will be available for viewing once again when the museum opens next spring. The board members of the museum are very appreciative for the generous contribution that the Craft’s made in the restoration of the cook car.   Login or Subscribe to view full stories.

Stanley Car Safety Seat Check Results

Results of a car seat checkup held in Stanley recently showed the majority of seats checked had at least one error in use. Carol Meidinger, a certified child passenger safety instructor from the North Dakota Department of Health, said “The results of Stanley’s checkup are similar to those in other parts of the state and country, with approximately 75 to 80 percent of car seats being misused.” The most common errors identified at the checkup were: • Car seat not installed in the vehicle correctly, either because the car seat was too loose, the angle was incorrect or the LATCH system was used incorrectly. • Child not secured correctly in the car seat. Errors included loose harnesses, straps in the wrong set of slots and retainer/chest clips positioned incorrectly over the child. • Several car seats had manufacturer recalls that had not been repaired or the car seat was expired.

Proposed Bill Will Provide Necessary Support Across The State

Senators Rich Wardner, John Andrist and Kelly Armstrong, and Representative Mike Schatz announced an early funding bill recently to support North Dakota cities and counties. Western Republican legislators have been meeting with local officials to develop a plan that will provide funding support to the oil producing counties and cities as well as ensure that all state funding obligations are met. The proposal is an $800 million surge funding bill: 1. $475 million to oil producing counties and cities 2. $140 million to the three hub cities-Williston, Dickinson and Minot 3. $35 million to oil producing county schools 4. $150 million to statewide counties and cities for roads (excluding oil producing counties) The early passing of this bill will allow cities and counties the opportunity to prepare for the 2015 construction season and will ensure communities in and out of the oil patch will have money available for shovel-ready projects on July 1st. The funds are surplus money from the current biennium and will come out of the Strategic Investment   Login or Subscribe to view full stories.
