Last year, the ice plant for the Chris Midgarden Arena broke down and needed to be replaced causing the discussion for the future of Park River Hockey and Park River Figure Skating programs to come to the forefront once again. With the pro- posed new facility, they would be able to move the new ice plant that was purchased this past year to the new facility. This past winter, there were 65 kids in the youth hockey program and 60 in- volved in the figure skating program. In addition, the arena also has been popular for public skating. In addition to the arena, the events cen- ter has been designed for year round use with the addition of a gym and a walking track. The gymnastics program, which cur- rently is housed at the Park River City Hall, has 62 kids involved. The needs of the program are for larger space and in- creased storage. Park River youth basketball programs with 80 kids involved could use the space for practice, games, and tournaments. Markusen said that they want the com- munity to think of this proposed building as more than a place for sports, it has been' designed as a fully functional event cen- ter with a large space for 500 plus people for events with a kitchen and parking. The opportunities that they presented to the city beyond the needs of hockey, basketball, and gymnastics included soc- cer, volleyball, fitness classes, boy scouts activities, wedding dances, banquets, family reunions, golf cages, batting cages, in-line skating, dances, business Project Safe Send locations include area sites in July BISMARCK, N.D. -- Agricul- ture Commissioner Doug Goehring encourages farmers, ranchers, pes- ticide dealers and applicators, gov- ernment agencies and homeowners to bring their unusable pesticides to any of the 12 Project Safe Send col- lections in July. "This is a simple and non-regu- latory program to help people safe- ly and legally get rid of unusable pesticides free of charge," Goehring said. "Over the past 20 years, thou- sands of people have brought more than three million pounds of these chemicals to Project Safe Send collection sites." Project Safe Send accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, in- cluding herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. The pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration. The program is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufactur- ers. "Check your storage areas for any unusable pesticides and safe- ly set them aside for Project Safe Send," Goehring said. "If you find that the containers are deteriorating or leaking, pack them in larger con- tainers with absorbent materials. Free, heavy-duty plastic bags are available from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture." People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should pre-reg- ister. No other pre-registration is re- quired. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Pesticide rinse wa- ter also will be accepted. The first 100 pounds ofrinse water will be taken free of charge; a fee will be applied for each additional pound. To pre-register, obtain plastic bags or for more information, con- tact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agricul- ture at (800) 242-7535 or The collections will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time at the North Dakota Department of Trans- portation facilities in the following cities: July 23 Adams July 24 Grand Forks FARMLAND FOR SALE PERTH TOWNSHIP David Shimek offers for sale the following de- scribed farmland: Northeast Quarter (NE1/4) of Section Six (6), Township One Hundred Fifty-five (155), Range Fifty-eight (58).

Though the entire project comes with an $8 million dollar price tag for the building, baseball/softball diamonds, 330 parking spaces, 20 camping sites, paving and landscaping, Markusen said that the plan could be built in stages. "We'd like to see baseball diamonds and possibly campsites happen before this winter," he said. The more expensive piece to this puz- zle would be the event center, which would cost around 5.5 to 6 million, and that would come later on. Halvorson said that there had been problems financially for Parks and Rec coming into this year, but after cutting spending and cutting an employee, things have started to turn around. He said that voters approved a mill levy increase and going into next year they will have the full increase that they were approved for to help maintain a complex like this. In addition, Halvorson said that the devel- opment of the Baseball Boosters and the Pool Boosters have been a huge help in their fundraising efforts to help pay for these Parks and Rec programs. But Markusen also stressed that they are not looking for Parks and Rec to pay for this complex. "There has to be com- munity buy-in, community effort, com- munity pride in this thing," he said.
