OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF STANLEY AND MOUNTRAIL COUNTY

106TH YEAR, NUMBER 43

PROMOTER
STANLEY, ND 58784 WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013

Mountrail County
Stanleys Blue Jay Boosters have been revitalized with a number of new members this year. As of last weeks Athletic Banquet the number of members has reached around 100. Earlier this school year, an Instant Alert message was sent out on the schools notication system that a meeting was being held to determine the future of the organization. It seems to have worked as a number of people turned out for that rst meeting and the numbers have continued to grow. Normal meeting attendance sits between ten and twenty members and the ideas for new projects continues to grow. Even more members turn out to help with projects and they hope to do a little more each year to help the school. The Booster Club is one way to help the school with projects that cannot be done in other ways. This year, the Boosters have set a challenge before themselves. Their big project this year will revitalize the football eld area with a new scoreboard and better sound system. They hope to have both in place at the start of the football season. The scoreboard was ordered last week through Daktronics. They had looked at repairing the old scoreboard, but parts are not available to x the problem. This new scoreboard should be easier to operate as well. It will be the same size, using the same structure, as a cost saving measure when it comes to mounting the new board. It will have colored lights on the board, rather than clear lights and the negative sign before the home score will be a thing of the past. The state championship banners will be relocated possibly to posts nearby. Cost for the new scoreboard is $13,466. The sound system is being ordered through Jacobsen Music with the help of former music instructor John Spitzer. The original estimates for the cost of the system have gone up as they looked at recommendations for different equipment through a different vendor. The system they will be ordering will have higher and better quality. The Booster Club opted to make the change to be sure they do it right the rst time as they look at ways to improve the sound system to better serve those on the visitors sidelines and those that park on the other side of the eld to watch from their vehicles. Cost for the sound system is estimated at $12,095. A third part of this project will provide travel bags for football gear. This project started early with Jim Enge and Bill Whitmore. They brought a proposal to the Boosters to purchase sideline coats for the football team. They met with the players and coach Lyne Enget to ask if they would be used. What they got back was a request for gear bags for their practicality and use. When that went back, the two men were in favor of the change. They had raised the funds to help cover the $2,250 for this part of the project. All totaled that brings the project to a cost of $27,811. To date, the School Board has committed to funding half the cost of the scoreboard and sound system, a commitment of $12,797. The Stanley Lions Club donated $5,320. That donation includes a commitment by the organization as well as donations from individual members. Jamie and Cory Rice have donated $4,000 towards

the project. The donation for the travel bags and other donations have brought the total to $5,485. That leaves the Boosters with $4,242 to raise to nish covering the costs of the project. They are actively seeking donations at this time to help meet that goal. Once nished, they will be putting up a plaque to recognize the individuals and organizations that have donated to help cover the costs. A Community Variety Show will be held on Friday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the Stanley High School. This joint effort between the schools music department and the Boosters will also help fund this project. The Boosters hope to nd a way to hold an annual event like this variety show or a dinner theater, something to bring the community together to support the projects at the school and have fun while doing it. Members have been busy with fundraising ideas and projects to help cover the costs of their normal activities, including the athletic banquet. They have Blue Jay emblem decals for sale. Theyve worked with candy sales. Theyve held pop shoots at home games. They also worked some junior high wrestling concessions. They are also coordinating with a company to do sports posters for the 2013-14 school year as another fundraiser. They have also received donations from both Stanleys and Rosss gaming funds to help meet their expenses for their projects. Working with coaches and ad-

visors at the school, the Blue Jay Boosters have also identied upcoming projects. They include nets, antennas, referee stand and pads for the stand for volleyball; a new scorers table in the gym; a breakaway banner and mascot or cheerleading; ball storage bins for basketball; mat lights, gear bags and technique videos for wrestling; exercise bands in the workout room; and junior high pants and pads for football. The overall goal of the Booster Club is to work with projects that will make a lasting impression for the school and the classes to come. Interested in getting involved? Their next meeting is planned for Wednesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. at the high school. Interested in donating to the scoreboard and sound system project? Donations can be mailed c/o Kyle Hanson, 624 8th Ave SE, Stanley. You can remain anonymous if you wish or you can have your name listed on the plaque.

City Reappraisal Project Starts May 12


Preliminary work for the reappraisal program, which includes door to door inspections of all properties in Stanley City, will begin May 12th, 2013. Representatives of Vanguard Appraisals, Inc. will be reappraising all residential and commercial real estate for property tax assessment purposes. Each Vanguard representative will have a photo ID, identifying them as such. The purpose of the reappraisal is to equalize property assessments. Each taxpayer is responsible for paying only his/her fair share of the property tax burden. Stanley City assessment records have very little information on which to base an accurate assessment. The City of Stanley of ce does not have the resources to complete the project in a timely manner. Vanguard Appraisals, Inc. was hired because they have considerable reappraisal experience and have conducted successful reappraisal projects in the upper Midwest, including North Dakota. Data collectors will make interior and exterior inspections of all properties. They will be compiling information to be used to estimate fair market value of each property. Information to be collected includes: type of construction, type of interior nish, physical condition of the property, age of structures and exterior measurements. A complete sales analysis, local construction costs and economic conditions are also considered. No estimate of value will be given at the time of inspection. The City of Stanley asks that you cooperate by allowing a complete inspection of your property and provide accurate information in order to determine a fair and equitable assessment for your property. Denial of access to the property, or providing inaccurate information does not release Vanguard representative from placing a value on your property. Incomplete or inaccurate information may result in an assessment that may not be a fair reection of the propertys actual value. For this reason, our of ce requests your assistance to ensure that the reappraisal project is completed successfully. Notice of nal value estimates will be mailed to each property owner after the completion of the project, tentatively around June 1st. Property owners will have an opportunity to meet informally to discuss their revaluation with representatives of Vanguard Appraisals, Inc. The Stanley City Hall, and the Director of Equalization Ofce will have a listing of all names and license plate numbers of assessors involved in the project. If you have any questions regarding the reappraisal project, please call City Hall, phone at 701-6282225, or mail at PO Box 249, Stanley, ND 58784.

Much has been said recently about the condition of the current Stanley City Hall and plans for a new city hall. The Stanley City Council has spent the last few months hearing options for a new city hall and recently was presented with a list of problems with the current city hall. As the council has looked at options for a new city hall, inspections were done on the current city hall and the property it sits upon. Larson Engineering and Braun Intertec were part of that process. The boring samples of the ground showed that there are petroleum residues in the ground and ground water around the current building. That is not surprising considering the buildings location had housed a lling station many years ago. Couple that with being surrounded by lling stations as well in the past, and the potential for petroleum in the ground is almost to be expected. As they move forward the city knows they will have to remediate this problem. They are currently looking at grant opportunities to help mitigate the costs of any remediation. Given the age of the building it is not surprising that the inspection found asbestos materials in oor tiles, some ceiling panels in the basement area and around the furnace. Other than the areas in the basement and around the furnace, the risk level is indicated to be low or having a less than signicant potential for damage. There are also indications for some lead based paint and other hazardous building material at the site, again many of which can be attributed to the age and previous uses of the building. The building itself will face some other challenges for the council including a leaking roof, a ventilation system in need of repairs, structural concerns and the potential for mold. City Building Inspector Denis Kesterson has also looked at the existing city hall and expressed his concerns over some of the issues the

What Is Happening With City Hall

building faces and has encouraged the council to move forward to repair or vacate the current building. All of this will lead the council to make serious decisions over the next few months. Mayor Mike Hynek says the city is working with State Health to resolve the issues and address the things that need to be done. However, he says, the city is not ready to pull the trigger on construction of a proposed $6 million project. The council is still going through the process to make sure everything is done responsibly. They are working to determine the citys needs. That could be a basic city hall or it could be a two story of ce building. The originally proposed three story city hall with apartments and retail space has been taken off the table by the council as they are currently researching the other two options. The biggest challenge for the council right now is to nd a common solution. Hynek recognizes that no matter what course the council takes, there will be some give and take as to what the city wants and needs to meet the goals for the future. Hynek points out the city is not making any decisions yet, but he says they will work together to do the right thing. The most important point, though, is that the city is not being pushed, pressured or rushed into making a quick decision. Rather, working with State Health, they are looking to nd the best solution to the building concerns.

Helms Says Oil Boom Is Decades Long Process


By Steve Andrist North Dakotas oil boom is still a decades long process, says Lynn Helms, even though a published report predicts it will begin to decline in 2017. Helms, director of the state Department of Mineral Resources, said the study published in February in the journal Nature, draws conclusions based on faulty premises. He said when North Dakotas Bakken and Three Forks plays are fully developed, there will be somewhere around 48,000 wells in the state. In the last seven years, he said, producers have completed just under 5,200 wells. This is a decades long progress, he said. It will continue on for a long time. In the Nature article, author J. David Hughes of the Post Carbon Institute in California said Bakken production will begin declining by 40 percent a year sometime after 2017. I disagree with those who maintain that the Bakkens production can stay at that high level for many years, Hughes wrote. Using U.S. Energy Information Administration data, he said if 1,500 Bakken wells are drilled a year, the number of available drilling sites will be exhausted by 2017. The result would be 6,000 more wells before the decline starts. Helms says the operators are ready to drill 6,000 new wells in the next three years, and many more after that. He said he has signed 530 orders for multi-well drilling pads, and 334 more are nearing approval. With up to 14 wells being drilled from a pad, nearly 6,000 wells have been or soon will be permitted. Thats enough to keep producers busy for three years. Helms said, and its more than the 5,156 wells currently producing in the state. Hughes study concludes that shale oil and gas plays are not cheap or inexhaustible. He said two plays, the Eagle Ford in Texas and the Bakken, produce 81 percent of the countrys tight oil. He also notes that production from shale wells drops signicantly over time, a conclusion with which Helms agrees. Hughes says the ultimate output of shale plays depends on the number of available drilling locations, and he pegs that total in the Bakken at 12,000. Wells cannot be drilled to close together because they drain the same reservoir volume, Hughes wrote. A game-changer, according to Helms, is multi-well pads. To date, the highest number of wells drilled from a pad in a spacing unit is 14, he said, but he has already signed three orders permitting up to 18 wells on a pad. He also believes the long-term production in the Bakken will be increased as technology is developed perfecting methods for enhanced oil recovery.

(Continued from Page 1) Theodora Bird Bear spoke about how intimidating it can be as well, having testied for the rst time. She says that people are losing their rights and protections. It is a commitment. You can have an impact by telling your story. It is your home and land and you must ght for it. Questions were also raised about how easements affect the person who may be a tenant on the land. It is important for the companies to also be fair with the tenants. Rose Person says that as a landowner, she nds it important to make sure her renters are protected, but that is not always the case. Don Morrison closed the meeting by thanking everyone for coming and sharing their information. The impact is being seen everywhere now, although the impacts vary by locations. People banding together can improve those conditions and their quality of life as they share their stories and actions.
