What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

BLM to assess Centennial Watershed l'he Bureau of Land Manage- ment's Dillon Field Office plans to assess the resource condi- tions on BLM-administered public lands within the Centen- nial Watershed near Monida, Montana this summer. The Centennial Watershed includes 36 grazing allotments, which includes about 75,000 acres of BLM-administered public land in addition to 10,800 un-allotted BLM acres within the watershed. The five stan- dards for rangeland health will be reviewed on an allotment -by - allotment basis along with the un-allotted areas to determine whether or not the standards are being met. These standards include: maintaining properly function- ing upland and riparian areas, assuring that water quality and air quality meet State standards, and providing for biodiversity.

Japanese beetle quarantine continues The artificial spread of the invasive Japanese beetle, Popil- lia japonica Newman, has the potential to be a considerable risk to Montana's nursery and agriculture industries. The Montana Department of Ag- riculture, the Montana Nurs- ery & Landscape Association (MNLA), and the Association of Montana Riff, Ornamental, & Pest Professionals (AMTOPP) are working cooperatively to inform nursery businesses and consumers of identification and inspection procedures to pre- vent outbreaks. \The Japanese beetle, first detected in Montana in 2002, is a highly destructive invasive plant pest. Inspections this spring have already identified live Japanese beetle grubs, which feed on grass roots before becoming adults, then attack more than 500 species of plants, including a wide va- riety of trees, shrubs, grasses, nursery plants, and vegetable and field crops,\ explained Beth Eiring, quarantine and nursery specialist for the department of agriculture. Consistent detections of the Japanese beetle through trap- ping and monitoring prompted the establishment of a state quarantine area in Yellowstone County in 2008. The department continues to monitor and inspect nursery stock from states with known Japanese beetle infesta- tion. After a significant increase in the number of beetles brought into the state through regulated nursery stock importation, the department re -instated the exte- rior Japanese beetle quarantine in 2013. During an inspection of nursery stock this April, two live Japanese beetle grubs were found in the soil of a nursery plant from Bailey Nurseries' Minnesota facility. Upon be- ing informed of the detected Japanese beetle grub, Bailey Nurseries voluntarily cancelled TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY FOR SALE Cleaning house 'Wood gun cabinet holds 10 guns $50.

Bailey Nurseries has been, and continues to be, proac- tive in finding a solution to this issue both internally and with the state of Montana. We are voluntarily ceasing shipments of container nursery stock from our Minnesota facility into Montana for the 2014 season. We will continue shipment of bareroot product from Min- nesota and container product from our Oregon facilities in 2014, and are shifting additional container production to Oregon for 2015 shipments and beyond. We apologize to our valued cus- tomers for the disruption, and promise to work diligently to find a solution with the Montana Department of Agriculture,\ said Terri McEnaney, President of Bailey Nurseries. In addition to resources available on the department's pest management website about the beetle, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Ser- vice (USDA APHIS) provides Japanese beetle identification and quarantine information on their website. The Montana Department of Agriculture will continue to inspect nursery stock, work with nurseries and consumers, and survey for ad- ditional treatment options. \By following all quarantine regulations and with diligent inspections for this invasive pest by nursery businesses and informed consumers, we can potentially prevent addi- tional quarantines and costly eradication efforts,\ said MNLA Executive Director Jyl Story. \The Montana Nursery and Landscape Association com- mends Bailey Nurseries for stepping up to the plate and finding a workable solution to this immediate problem, and as- sisting with long-term plans for the industry as a whole.\ \We all have an interest in preventing the spread of Japa- nese beetle. AMTOPP thanks the department and Bailey Nurser- ies for working with our asso- ciation to monitor and prevent the transportation of this pest,\ said Karl Brittain, Executive Director of the Association of Montana 'flirt% Ornamental, & Pest Professionals. \This is a difficult problem for suppliers, nurseries and consumers, and we appreciate the cooperative efforts of all involved to eradicate this pest and resume healthy business operations. In an effort to pre- vent a potential spread of this pest, nursery owners can refuse shipments that are in violation of quarantines. The department, MNLA, and AMTOPP will con- tinue to inform businesses and consumers of proper actions to take if they suspect the impor- tation of the Japanese beetle,\ said Eiring. The Montana Department of Agriculture's mission is to pro- tect producers and consumers, and to enhance and develop ag- riculture and allied industries. For more information on the Montana Department of Agri- culture, visit agr.mt.gov and conifer expansion issues are also included within the land health standards. Where standards for land health are not met, contributing factors will be identified and recommenda- tions for corrective action will be developed and presented by the interdisciplinary team. National Environment Policy Act documentation will be pre- pared next winter to analyze al- ternatives for revised manage- ment where resource concerns are found within the watershed. The assessment, determina- tion and any necessary NEPA documentation will be com- pleted by resource specialists from the Dillon Field Office in coordination with permittees/ lessees, other agencies and in- terested members of the public.
