May 3, 2012 Page 3 !n13 on constitutional measurements Scoreboard What a beautiful rain! We received about 70 hundredths ... not as mnch as some, but greatly appreciated. That reminds me of a story about my brother-in-law who would sneak over to the neighbor&apos;s every time it rained and add a little water to his rain gauge. It wasn't very long until this neighbor was bragging that God was always smiling down on him, because he received more rain than anybody else. Yep, you guessed it, my broth- er-in-law spent the next six months taking rain out of the neighbor's gauge. Just enough to make him feel slighted. I've learned to never be the one to brag first at the coffee shop. On June 12, the primary election will take place. I've been asked many times about the measures that wilt be placed on the 2012 primary election ballot, so I thought I would share the memorandum provided to us from Legislative Council. and give you a chance to look them over before the election. CONSTITUTUONAL MEA- SUE NO. 1 APPOINTMENT OF A MEMBER OF THE LEGISLA- TIVE ASSEMBLY TO A FULL- TIME APPOINTIVE STATE OFFICE: The Legislative Assembly adopted House Concurrent Resolution No. 3047 which would amend Article 1V, Section 6. of the Constitution of North Dakota. to provide that a member of the Legislative Assembly may not be appointed to an office for which the compensation has been increased in an amount greater than any' general increase provided to full-time state employees by the Legislative Assembh during that member's term of office. Section 6 currently prohibits a member of the Legislative Assembly front being uppointed to any full-time office that was created or for which the compensation was increased by the l,egislative Assembly during the term for which that legislator was elected. CONSTITUTIONAL MEAURE NO.2 PROPERTY TAX ELIMI- NATION AND REVENUE .,REPLACEMENT: ......... ' This initiated ' constitutional Capitol Report By Shirley Meyer State Representative, District 36 I thought I would share the memo- randum provided to us from Legislative Council, and give you a chance to look them over before the election. measure would eliminate property taxes and require the Legislative Assembly to devise a formula to replace lost property tax revenues. CONSTITUTIONAL MEAS- URE NO.3 GOVERNMENT NOT TO BURDEN EXERCISE OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: This initiated constitutional measure would create a ne, section to Article I of the Constitution of North Dakota. This section would provide that. absent proof of a com- pelling governmental interest and then only by use of the least restric- tive means, the government is pro- hibited from burdening the sincere exercise of religious liberty by a person or religious organization. The section also provides that a burden includes indirect burdens such as withholding benefits. assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facili- ties. REFERENDUM MEASURE NO. 4 FIGHTING SIOUX NICK- NAME AND LOGO REPEAL: This referendum woukl reject Senate Bill No. 2370 (.2011 special session) which repealed North Dakota Century Code Section 15- 10-46. Section 15-10-46 requires the University of North Dakota ath- letic teams to be known as the Fighting Sioux. Bv voting "'yes." a voter will be approving the repeal of Section 15-10-46. t hope this helps make vour d'[bOtlt"h'ow to vote a little eas]ert. ,: W- .. ::-"; students graduate vom University of Mary The University of Mary recog- nized 1.043 graduates April 28. with a total of 1.113 degrees at its 2012 commencement.

Access by foot is now easier since the dirt and mud has been covered over, (Photo by Richard Volesky) State l-tistorical Socieb seeks BISMARCK The grain eleva- tor is one of the classic sights on the prairies of North Dakota. The State Historical Society of North Dakota is sponsoring a photo contest to gather images and infor- mation on grain elevators in North Dakota. Photographs submitted for the contest will be displayed on a webpage that highlights elevators and the grain industry. The grand- prize-winning photograph will be made into a poster for distribution across the state. Dotted across the landscape, grain elevators have provided North Dakota farmers with the ability to store and distribute grain through- out the state, nation, and the world. They were invented in Buffalo, New York. in the early 1840s and have been built out of wood. con- crete, steel, and other materials in many different sizes. Grain eleva- tors came to North Dakota with the railroad, and their owners have ncluded the' hiili:6:ads(governme, / cooperatives, private companies, or individuals All photographs, with necessary identifying information, will also be added to the files of the State Historical Society of North Dakota. as part of the North Dakota Cultural Resources Survey. The contest opened May 1. the beginning of Historic Preservation Month. and will run through Dec. 31 of this year. It is open to all ama- entries for contest teur photographers, but the subject of the photos must be a grain eleva- tor in North Dakota and the location of the elevator must be included with the submission. Photographs should be taken within the last three years.
