COMMUNITY THE WALSR COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 10,2014 Pase 5 Ag'c,4 Uozce00 Research the facts on Measure 1 when voting this fall By Shauna Erickson GRAFTON, N.D. -- Please take the time and do what I have done. Check out the facts about Measure 1. As a nurse I had heard that Measure 1 will impact end of life decisions, but it isn't true! Did you know that people that are involved in elder care and even people that have spent years developing living wills, advance health care direc- fives as well as Do Not Resuscitate Orders have written a report that states Measure 1 will not have an impact on end-of-life care? I trust our legislators and will be voting yes on Measure 1 which says, "The inalienable fight to life of any human being at any stage of life shall be recognized and pro- tected." Editor's Note: Erickson is from Grafion, M.D. In response to Omdahl's comments on Measure 1 By Devyn Nelson BISMARCK, N.D. -- Lloyd Omdahl's analysis of Measure 1 bears no relationship to reality. He ascribes a strange theological ex- planation of why Christians support Measure 1 that has nothing to do with why Measure 1 is on the ballot, and then he mischaracterizes the issue to boot, putting forth talking points from opponents of Measure 1 that have been discredited by independent experts. Measure 1 will have no impact on contra- ception, IVF procedures, or end-of-life is- sues. It does not ban abortion, nor does it change any law on abortion. It is not on the ballot be- cause of theology. As just one example of the inaccuracy of Mr. Omdahl's talking points from opponents, let's look at end-of-life issues. Claims that Measure 1 would impact things like advance health care directives, living wills and Do Not Resuscitate orders were first made by Steve Morrison, an associate professor at UND just six years out of law school. They were immediately echoed by Dina Butcher. Both are with North Dakotans Against Measure 1, the leading opponents to this proposal. Both are abortion advocates. Mor- rison was a party to a brief asking the Supreme Court to uphold a ruling that created essentially an unlimited right to abortion. Butcher is an abortion lobbyist. Neither of these people have ever been involved in elder care issues. Meanwhile, fourteen experts in end of life care issues -- including many who have pioneered the use of health care directives, living wills and DNR orders - have compiled a report making clear that Measure 1 will not impact any of these issues. Measure 1 was put on the ballot by our leg- islators because out-of-state groups are trying to overturn laws that are passed by our elect- ed officials in the North Dakota state legisla- ture. This happened last year in Fargo when a state judge created a right to abortion in the state constitution, and used that to overtum a law de- signed to protect women. Measure 1 will stop them - a fact not even mentioned by Mr. Om- dahl. The judge's ruling to overturn the North Dakota's laws went beyond how most states in- terpret the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, and would threaten even common sense abortion laws like parental notification and con- science protection for health care workers. In- deed, every abortion law on the books is at risk. Measure 1 is on the ballot to stop outsiders from using our courts to impose a radical view of abortion. It has nothing to do with religious theology, and everything to do with making sure that North Dakota's laws are controlled by our elected officials, not judges who act at the be- hest of outside groups.

Join me in a day of prayer for our country Sept. 11 By Bob Hagen PARK RIVER, N.D. -- This is to all the good people of Park Riv- er and the surrounding towns. There will be an event coming up next week on Thursday, Septem- ber 11, 2014 from 5-6 p.m. in the Little Park in Park River. R has been on my heart to gath- er like minded believers for a Prayer in the Park for the restora- tion of our nation back to the One True God. We as a nation have turned our backs on God and his principles. There are many things we have done to show we no longer put God first. We have turned our health care over to the government, our schools to common core and our mortality is no longer in har- mony with what God states in Romans Chapter 2. I invite everyone to join us in the Park on 9/11/14 from 5-6 and we will lift up our prayers to our God and see if he will answer us. Take Care.

If You Can't Find What You're Looking For... hl  I WE'LL FIND IT FOR YOUI, Tobacco-free schools increase across No: rl h Dakota GRAFTON, N.D. -- Another school year is here, and according to the North Dakota Center for To- bacco Prevention and Control Pol- icy (the Center), there are now 138 North Dakota school districts with comprehensive tobacco-free poli- cies. That's an increase from 60 school districts since North Dako- ta's tobacco prevention program was put into place by voters in 2009. Thanks to the current to- bacco-free school districts, 60 percent of all North Dakota stu- dents are protected from exposure to tobacco use on school grounds and at school events. According to the Center, to- bacco-free school districts are a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-approved pol- icy proven to keep kids from us- ing tobacco because tobacco-free policies shape how the younger generation perceives tobacco use. "When our school districts have comprehensive tobacco-free poli- cies prohibiting tobacco use on school grounds and at school events, it sends the message to our kids that tobacco use is not socially acceptable," said Jeanne Prom, ex- ecutive director of the Center. "That's a powerful tool in shaping how kids perceive tobacco use." Prom said having policies that protect our kids from tobacco use is important because the tobacco industry spends millions of dollars marketing their products to kids, despite laws prohibiting them from doing so. Some of the known ways to- bacco companies market to kids are by promoting nicotine and to- bacco products other than ciga- rettes. Instead, fruit and candy-fla- vored cigars, snus, chew and e-cig- arettes are put in brightly-colored packaging that appeals to a new generation of tobacco users, which are our kids. According to a recent CDC study, more than 40 percent of U.S. youth in grades 6 through 12 who currently smoke report us- ing flavored tobacco products. Walsh County Health District Tobacco Prevention Coordinator Stacy Langen, RN said the in- creased marketing to kids is one of the reasons we are so pleased with all of the Walsh County School Districts' decisions to en- act comprehensive tobacco-free policies. "We're appreciative that our school boards have taken this im- portant step to protect our kids," said Langen. "It sends a clear message that we care about keep- ing our kids tobacco-free." "In North Dakota, 19 percent of our high school students smoke and 22 percent of male high school students use smokeless or spit to- bacco. Many of these young users will suffer the consequences of poor health and a shortened life. Comprehensive tobacco-free school policies can help prevent our kids from using tobacco and help them lead healthy lives," said Langen. Walsh County Health District receives approximately $70,000 in tobacco settlement dollars each year to help keep our kids tobac- co free and to help users quit. To learn more about comprehensive tobacco-free school districts and preventing tobacco use, contact Walsh County Health District at 701.352.5139, or go to www.brea- thend.com to see a complete list of North Dakota's tobacco-free schools. Goehrh00 says more harvest help is needed in state00,, BISMARCK, M.D. -- Agri- culture Commissioner Doug Goehring says more combiners are needed to help bring in North Dakota's 2014 harvest. "The Harvest Hotline has a long list of farmers who need combining services, but a short list of combiners looking for work," Goehring said. "Right now, the number of farmers on the list is more than three times the number of harvesters."
