Johnson will perform traditional Swedish Christmas music, dances, and stories, which includes some crowd participation for both children and adults. Members of the Fort Pembina Historical Society will supply holiday goodies and bever- ages. All events, including admission to the seven-story observation tow- er that overlooks the Red River Val- ley, are flee and open to the public. The open house is sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota and the Fort Pembina His- torical Society. Managed by the State Historical Society, the 12,000-square-foot Pembina State Museum houses two museum galleries. The permanent exhibit gallery features 100 million years of regional history from the Cretaceous Period to contempo- rary times. The second gallery houses temporary and traveling ex- hibits highlighting regional and state history. Visitors can also see the tempo- rary exhibit, "How Does Your Gar- den Grow? Gardening in North Dakota." Short growing seasons and cold winters have always chal- lenged North Dakota gardeners. From native Mandan and Hidatsa gardeners to the modem NDSU ex- tension offices, people have worked to produce fruit and vegetable va- rieties that are cold-hardy, fast- growing, and drought resistant. This exhibit follows a garden's progress from planting, to harvest, and finally preservation. Historic garden implements and original seed catalogs are featured. Buckle up for winter driving: Increased seat belt enforcement during January BISMARCK, N.D. -- As safety enforcement ramps up again this month, law enforcement agencies are reminding North Dakota drivers that seat belts are your best protection in winter driv- ing conditions. Fifty-six law enforcement agen- cies across the state are participating in extra pa- trols and overtime shifts during January. Among them are the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Sher- iffs' departments, and municipal and campus po- lice departments. As any North Dakota motorist knows, many factors are at work in making a vehicle safe for winter driving. But the key safety feature is one that motorists need to employ on every trip---a seat belt. While law enforcementfficersare handing out tickets to those who defy North Dakota's seat belt law, safety exper& point out the laws of physics also apply. "A seat belt is not only the most effective safe- ty device in the vehicle, its proper use is essen- tial to the effectiveness of the vehicle's other safe- ty systems," says Sgt. Tom Iverson with the North Dakota Highway Patrol. "The air bag is one example," says Sgt. Iver- son. "Air bags are designed to protect a person who is properly buckled up and held in position by the seat belt. That's what seat belts do: keep the vehicle occupant within a safe space in case of a crash." Today's vehicles are engineered with "crum- ple zones," which absorb crash forces and help prey.nt the collapse of the passenger compart- ment The passenger areas of cars and trucks are reinforced with a "rol] cage' in the vehicle struc- ture, also engineered to minimize destructive im- pact on the human body. "If you or another occupant aren't buckled up, these safety systems are much less likely to pro- tect you. When you aren't using a seat belt, you are allowing the force of physical laws to have total command over the outcome in the case of a crash," Sgt. Iverson explains. Sergeant Dean Haaland of the Cass County Sheriff's Office agrees, "Wearing a seat belt costs you nothing, but not wearing it could cost you a fine or even worse...your own life or the life of someone else." All North Dakota law enforcement agencies enforce seat belt laws throughout the year, but the focus on seat belt enforcement is ramped up during four months out of the year. Funding for extra patrols is provided by the North Dakota De- partment of Transportation.
