"It's an honor to represent those in- volved with the or- ganization," Drew said. The weekend was full of events that both Ben and Drew got to take part in, starting this past Thursday with the French Fry Feed, moving into Friday and the UND fan luncheon, and then into Saturday morning's KEM Shrine Bowl Pa- rade. "We're here to rep- resent what goes on behind the scenes," Drew said. "We're also here to present the hard work and leadership skills that we have and that our organization has." Both Ben and Drew said that being recog- nized as ambassadors stretches way past the Potato Bowl weekend, but being recognized as leaders within the University of North Dakota community is an honor as well. "As a little kid I al- ways wanted to come here," Ben said. "There's really no greater honor than to represent this fine school." The weekend con- cluded with the men joining more than 9,100 fans in cheering on the UND football team in their victory against Robert Morris University. To a roar of the home team "crowd, both Ben and Drew were recognized dur- ing the game as being the 2014 Potato Bowl Ambassadors, and were joined on the field by the University of North Dakota's Di- rector of Athletics, Bri- an Faison. .............................................................................................................

"We've been working in the barn for the last two weeks," K]ose said. "We hope to have a chute within a month or so." The clinic has received a warm welcome, ac- cording to Klose. "It's been absolutely amazing, especially from Edinburg. They've been really welcom- ing," Klose said. "A few people have said, 'I found you.' I love hearing that." Klose currently has three employees help- ing her at the clinic -- her daughter Becky who is a senior at Valley-Edinburg; receptionist Staslie Zimmerman; and veterinary assistant Anna Ramsey. "It's nice because I'd worked with Staslie and Anna at Golden Valley," Klose said. "Anna's my right hand. She's with me all the time, and is amazing." Becoming a business owner was a bit of a transition for Klose. "Before, I'd never want- ed to be a business owner, but the time seemed about right .... A friend of mine told me that the last time he talked to me, I said there was no way I'd be a business owner. I told him that the times had changed." ! ND AUorney General warns against generalydlowpages.com mma BISMARCK, ND -- Vladimir Adolphe, doing business as Gener- alYellowpages.com and Electronic Media Marketing Group, Inc., has been banned from doing business in North Dakota after consumer fraud investigators determined he was engaging in deceptive practices. Adolphe lists addresses in both New York and New Jersey. After receiving reports from sev- eral businesses that received in- voices for advertising services they did not order, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem directed the con- sumer protection division initiate an investigation. The investigators de- termined that Adolphe, who also goes by Vlad Adolph, and his rep- resentatives called businesses across the state claiming they had previ- ously ordered a business listing service and asking if they wished to continue the service. When the business asked to cancel the service, it was informed that the bill for the previous year's service must be paid ill-St. Adolphe or his agents then sent an invoice for $599.95 and Crop insurance dosing approaches WASHINGTON -- USDA's more time to make an informed de- threatened legal action if the bill was not immediately paid. In some in- stances, Adolphe claimed the busi- ness owed for services from multi- ple years and submitted invoices with late fees added. One company received a threatening demand for payment of $3,620 for past due serv- ices, even after it paid the first in- voice. Adolphe claimed to have recordings of individuals authoriz- ing the services, but was not able to  provide investigators with ose: ii recordings or any other proof that the businesses he invoiced had ever ordered or received the services. Stenehjem said "It appears Mr. Adolphe targeted churches and lo- cal non-profits because those or- ganizations are often run by volun- teers or employees who may not be experienced in advertising and busi- ness accounting practices." Stene- hjem urged all North Dakota busi- nesses to verify that there is an orig- inal written order before paying an invoice. Risk Management Agency (RMA) reminds producers in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota that the fall sales closing date is Sept. 30. Fall sales closing and can- cellation dates are applicable for wheat (in counties with both a fall and spring sales closing date), forage production, and rye. RMA also recently announced the availability of the Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) in select counties for winter and spring wheat for the 2015 crop year. The new SCO is a county-ievel policy'endorsement that can be added to an underlying crop insurance policy, and covers a  portion of losses not covered by the same crop's underlying policy. Pro- ducers electing to participate in the Farm Service Agency's Agricultur- al Risk Coverage (ARC) for a crop on a farm cannot buy SCO for the same crop on the farm. Producers applying for SCO for the 2015 winter wheat crop may withdraw coverage on any farm where they have elected, or where they intend to elect, ARC for winter wheat by the earlier of their acreage reporting date or December 15 with- out penalty. This allows producers LEGAL NOTICES THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER I 0, 2014 cision related to whether to elect to participate in either the ARC or Price Loss Coverage (PLC) pro- grams for their winter wheat. If producers withdraw SCO coverage for a farm by the earlier of their acreage reporting date or December 15, they will not be charged a crop insurance premium. To withdraw coverage without penalty, producers must notify their agents of their in- tended election for ARC by the ear- lier of their winter wheat acreage re- porting date or Dec. 15. , RMA also, reminds producers that for the 2015 ,crop year, summerfal low winter wheat acreage planted to a cover crop in the fallow year must be insured under the continuous cropping practice the year following the cover crop. If a cover crop is planted in the fallow year the acreage cannot be insured under the sum- merfallow practice, regardless of when the cover crop was terminat- ed. For more information about cover crops refer to the applicable special provisions of insurance, and Natural Resources Conservation Service guidelines for the 2015 crop year.
