SWC: No Phone Calls

June 25, 2012

BISMARCK, N.D. – In what Richard Betting, of People to Save the Sheyenne, calls a blow to government transparency in North Dakota, the State Water Commission will no longer allow citizens to call in and listen to SWC meetings.

David Laschkewitsch, director of administrative services for the SWC, said Friday that there are several reasons for the move, mainly that the commission’s phone technology is not conducive to the process.

“We have no interest in hiding anything,” he said. “That is not our desire: to make it more difficult.”

BISMARCK, N.D. – The fate of the Sheyenne and Red River Valleys are in one man’s hands: State Engineer Todd Sando.

On Friday, Richard Betting of the People to Save the Sheyenne and Valley City City Commissioner Madeline Luke of the Ad Hoc Downstream Group presented testimony to Sando at a hearing on the permit that would allow the newly constructed outlet on the east end of Devils Lake to operate. The outlet would drain into the Sheyenne River, which feeds into the Red River of the North and runs into Canada.

“The world with less cancer and more birthdays gets closer with every Relay for Life event,” said emcee Paul Leier during the opening ceremony.

Funds raised from the event go to the American Cancer Society, which sponsors Relay for Life, to find cures and fight back against cancer, team developer Carol Grenz said.
