THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2017 Page 5 By Ginny Walker PARK RIVER, N.D. -- 1 would like to thank tl/e community of Park River. They took the 4th of July parade right into the parking lot of the Good Sam Home and all the floats were there. You should have seen the faces of all the residents, What a gift. Then just this last week the Aggies Band did the same thing. Those people have been blessed by this community. That's what living in a small town is all about in America. Neighbors loving neighbors. Editor's Note: Walker is from Hoople, N.D. BISMARCK, N.D. -- Mo- torists are reminded to watch for deer along roadways this time of year because juvenile animals are dispersing from their home ranges. October through early Decem- ber is the peak period for deer-ve- hicle accidents. Motorists are ad- vised to slow down and exercise caution after dark to reduce the likelihood of encounters with deer along roadways. Most deer-vehi- cle accidents occur primarily at dawn and dusk when deer are most often moving around. Motorists should be aware of warning signs signaling deer are in the area. When you see one deer cross the road, look for a second or third deer to follow. Also, pay attention on roadways posted with Deer Crossing Area caution signs. Deer-vehicle accidents are at times unavoidable. If an accident does happen, law enforcement authorities do not have to be no- tiffed if only the vehicle is dam- aged. However, if the accident in- volves personal injury or other property damage, then it must be reported. In addition, a permit is still re- quired to take parts or the whole carcass of a road-killed deer. Per- mits are free and available from game wardens and local law en- forcement offices. A few precautions can minimize chances of injury or property dam- age in a deer-vehicle crash. Always wear your seat belt. Don't swerve or take the ditch to avoid hitting a deer. Try to brake as much as possible and stay on the roadway. Don't lose control of your vehicle or slam into some- thing else to miss the deer. You risk less injury by hitting the deer. If you spot deer ahead, slow down immediately and honk your horn. K'~""'""~n l'~ .5 - ~"~"~ ' Tr~r~ L !

Nelsen said that they all felt that Brent hit it out of the park on all criteria. "He's very in tune with the state. He knows what works. He knows what doesn't. He holds his ground and he's not afraid to say 'hey, you know this isn't right,'" she said. Nelsen said that being a part of emergency management is a field where once you're in it, you love it, and you' re in it for the long haul. While they may not be first re- sponders, they work right along- side them. Emergency managers are always on duty whether deal- ing with a crisis, working clean up and recovery, or through education and preventative means, she said, it is an all-inclusive job. 'Tm glad to have him in my re- gion," Nelsen said of the Northeast region, which includes Rollette, Pierce, Wells, Foster, Eddy, Ben- son, Towner, Cavalier, Ramsey, Pembina, Walsh, Nelson, Grand Forks, Griggs, Steele, and Traill counties, and the two Tribal Na- tions of Turtle Mountain and Spir- it Lake. "We all work really well together." Brent and Becky Nelson live on a farm between Park River and Grafton. They have four children, Jared, Zachary, Kaitlyn, and Seth. Nelson has served as emer- gency manager of Walsh County for the past 23 years.
