Right: Isak Johnson, Ryo lan 8etnes, andSeth Helgeson are all smiles at the reeeplion following the Eagle Scout Court of Honor. They are pictured with fresh Eagle Scout badges in hand and a cake eel- ebraling their achievement. working hard toward achieving their goals, as they each had to complete an Eagle Scout project to highlight their work in community service. Though Park River has had a long history of scouting, this is the first group of young men who have achieved the rank of Eagle in more than 20 years according to Jeff Johnson. Boy Scout Troop 70 started young again as Cub Scout Pack 70 was reactivated in 2004, but the pro- gram has rallied in popularity, with the most notable activities  being popcorn sales and the annual Pinewood Derby.

Overseas coverage: In most cas- es, health care you receive outside of the United States is not covered. The best way to find out if Medicare covers what you need is to talk to your doctor or other health care provider. Or, visit for their accomplishment, the rarity of this achieve- ment was noted on each program. "Of 100 boys who become Scouts, it must be confessed that 30 will drop out their first year. Per- haps this may be regarded as a failure, but later in life all of them will remember that they had been Scouts and will speak well of the program. "Of the 100, rarely will one appear before a ju- venile court. Twelve of the one hundred will be from families that do not belong to a church. Through Scouting, these 12 and many of their fam- ilies will be brought into contact with a church and will continue to be active all of their lives.

Also keep in mind that even if Medicare covers a service or item, they don't usually pay 100 percent of the cost. Unless you have sup- plemental insurance, you'll have to pay monthly premiums as well as annual deductibles and copayments. Most preventive services, however, are covered by original Medicare with no copays or deductibles. For more information on what original Medicare does and doesn't cover, see the "Medicare and You" 2015 booklet that you should receive in the mail a few months before you turn 65, or you can see it online at You can also get help over the phone by calling Medicare at 800- 633-4227, or contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Pro- gram (SHIP), who provides free one-on-one Medicare counseling in person or over the phone. To find a local SHIP counselor visit, or call the eldercare lo- cator at 800-677-1116. If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you'll need to contact you plan ad- ministrator for details.

Ccnt00ct The Press: (701) 284-6333 100 will become pastors. "Each of the 100 will learn something significant from Scouting. Almost all will develop hobbies that will add interest throughout their lives. About 50 will serve in the military, and in varying degrees profit from their scout training. At least one will use his scouting skills to save another person's life, and many will credit Scouting with saving their own lives. "Two of the 100 will reach the rank of Eagle, and at least one will later say that he values his Eagle badge above his college degree. Many will find their future vocation though merit badge work and Scouting contacts. Seventeen of the 100 boys will later become Scout leaders and will give leadership to thousands of additional boys. Only one in four boys in America will become Scouts but it is interesting to know that of this na- tion's leaders in business, religion, and politics, three of four were Scouts." Seth, Isak, and Rylan have put their best effort to- ward modeling the Scout Oath to "do my best to do my duty to God any country and to obey the Scout Law: To help other people at all times; to keep my- self physically strong, mentally awake, and morally stright" to become leaders in Scouts, school, the community, and beyond. Third weelc Infiasa'uctum needs and lessons from Iafimore By Tom Campbell Sen. District 19 BISMARCK, N.D. -- Third week of the legislative session started off with some awesome testimony from Fireman Brad Martinson. We were successful with SB 2184 unanimously passing which would increase raffle prizes for the Grafton's an- nual Fireman's fund raiser April 11. Now it goes to the House. Great news to see that the $845 million Surge Fund Bill has $160 million in it for the Eastern non oil impacted coun- ties. Walsh County receiving $9.9 million and Grand Forks County receiving $8.8 million fair very well as the 2nd and 3rd highest counties receiving money based on unmet needs. The Upper Great Plains Trans- portation Institute determined which counties needed the most help. Walsh County, because of over 500 bridges that areold and in very bad shape will get a chance to catch up in bridging the gap. This fund is primarily set up to help the western oil im- pacted cities with infrastructure challenges. Sugar Beet growers were in town to discuss issues relating to their industry; JeffWhelan, Paul Mathiason and Allen Tucker did a nice job representing Sugar. I introduced two bills regard- ing the train/bus accident in La- rimore. SB 2315 moves up the current $500,000 liability cap in the North Dakota Insurance Re- serve Fund to $3 million for any future accidents. This was set back in the mid 1970's and should be updated for cost of in- flation. Minnesota and Montana currently are at $1.5 million and South Dakota has immunity where they can not be sued as a state. SB 2316 sets up a one time $2 million fund to help accident victims that may miss the $500,000 liability cap in place now. My main concern is to help families that may be short coverage or need help. The North Dakota Bankers Association had two day meet- ings in Bismarck and a legisla- tive reception last Thursday. It was great to see many bankers from the entire state visiting our Capitol. I was given the topic "Balancing Constituents Inter- ests" for a speech I delivered to the Bankers group Wednesday morning. "LISTENING" was something I learned to do since being elected as a great tool in helping my constituents. Lisa Fair McEvers, a native of Minto,ND was appointed to the North Dakota Supreme Court by Governor Dalrymple. I see her often around the halls of the Capitol and I am proud to have a District 19 native on our Supreme Court. We hope to have a mock court in Grafton this summer for students to learn more about how are Judicial sys- tem works. Some bills we have not dis- cussed but would like to hear your reaction for future deci- sions that I may have to vote on? *Raising cigarette taxes? *Medical Marijuana from farm to pharmacy to patient? *Concealed weapons for elected officials to carry? .Create a $5,000 account for all newborns? *Change legislature to meet every year? We had Niles Hushka with KLJ lay out some possible sce- narios for oil recovery. He said 30% of the oil industry experts believe it will be a short recov- ery while 60% believe it will be a longer, slower return to higher prices. The main reason for the drop is because of a slow of de- mand from Europe and Asia along with US increases in pro- duction and OPEC not wanting to cut back production like they normally would during times like this. I would always like to error on the side of caution be- cause I think most of us know that only God himself really knows the future prices of oil. North Dakota produces "sweet light crude" a high quality low cost oil of which we can stand right along with OPEC in the last man standing scenario if comes to play. I believe this is not the time to panic but the time to plan. Be- cause of our past legislatures wise planning for down turns, we are in good shape and will adjust to the new projections and use the rainy day funds to get us through these times.
