Jack Dalrymple signed into law, legisla- tion intended to make it easier, safer and more affordable for rural resi- dents to share the experiences of their farms and ranches with visi- tors. House Bill 1142 limits the liabil- ity of agritourism providers for injuries that result from conditions that are considered beyond the con- trol of the agritourism professional. The liability protection found in this legislation does not exclude the need for liability insurance. Rather, it may make agritourism insurance more affordable and available, two obstacles that have prevented potential operators from offering agritourism .... North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otto Coleman said this bill is vital to growing tourism, the state's third largest industry. "More and more tourists who visit North Dakota want to learn about and experience farming and ranching, and enjoy more rural out- door recreation options," she Said. "This interest provides an outstand- ing opportunity to expand No Dakota's tourism industry, and ! hope this legislation will encourage our farmers and ranchers to share their love of the land with visitors interested in agriculture-based activities." One North Dakota agritourism provider is Black Butte Adventures, a 540-acre working cattle ranch near Sawyer that serves as an out- door classroom, allowing North Dakota residents and visitors to get up close and personal with agricul- ture and the native prairie, as well as providing "camping, hiking and biking. Owner Maria Effertz Hanson views this legislation as key to increasing the number of agri- tourism providers. "By providing better protection for the rural tourism producer, more landowners and individuals will become com- fortable in opening up their proper- ty and sharing their knowledge and way of life with visitors." The new law opens the door for experiences for visitors and opera- tors, according to James Odermann, a Billings County beef producer and a champion of House Bill 1142. "This legislation provides a mecha- nism through which agriculture and tourism operators can unite to share the story of North Dakota with each other and the thousands of guests who visit our state annually." Deadline approaching for farm program Agricultural producers who want to participate in Farm Service Agency's Direct and Counter Cyclical Program or the Average Crop Revenue Election Program during the 2011 crop year must submit their applications by June 1 to be eligible for the program. Aaron Krauter, North Dakota State Executive Director for FSA, says he can't stress the impor- tance of the deadline enough. "This is a deadline that program participants can't miss," Krauter said. "We saw some confusion in the past where peo- ple thought they had signed up, didn't realize they had to apply each year, and missed out on the program." Producers who choose to partici- pate in either the revenue-based ACRE safety riet or the price-based DCP safety net must apply for the pro- gram each year. All owners and oper- ators who will share in the DCP or ACRE payments on the farm must sign the enrollment fonn (CCC-509) by June 1. ff a producer does not get the signed form in to their local office by June 1, they will not be enrolled in the program for the current year and will not receive benefits. Producers who choose to participate in DCP or ACRE were allowed to choose between the two programs in 2009. A producer who initially chose to remain in DCP does have the option to switch to the ACRE program when they apply for the program before the June 1 deadline. However, producers who elected to enroll their farm in ACRE cannot switch back to DCP. Additionally, if a producer has a farm that is enrolled in ACRE and buys another farm that is enrolled in DCP, the two farms cannot be combined unless the DCP farm is changed to ACRE. May 19, 2011 I I I Flight (Continued from Page 1) I detail In l his experience, thel i Japanese vere pleasant and con -' genial. They were happy the war was over, he said. Dolyniu was discharged in December 1945. After the war, Dolyniuk came 'home to Bqlfield but didn t stay, he went out West. There, he worked on the Columbia River, dredging from Portland to; Astoria, Ore. For a while, he' worked in wholesale plumbing inl Seattle, according to his RRHF biography. He married his wife, Magdalene, in 1951. Togetherl they raised seven children. They also have 12 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren: Dolyniuk worked in several different positions over the years,! and retired from being the manag- er of the Cass Clay Creamery of Dickinson. Flight organizers say the flight! from earlier this month exhausted their waiting list, having escorted more than 500 veterans. An addi-' tional 800 veterans traveled on flights originating in Fargo and Grand Forks. "When I agreed to chair thisl effort, I knew there would be a first flight and I was pretty sure there .would be a second. I was2 amazed when we began organiz- ing the fifth flight," Kevin Cramer, RRHF committee" chair,; said in a prepared statement. "We made the commitment to do thisl as long as there was a local WWlI veteran able and ready to go." The WWII memorial pays homage to the 16 million Americans who served during the" campaign. The monument was not. completed until 2004, and most o the war's veterans never had the opportunity to visit the site. The cost of each RRHF trip was funded by corporate and pri-! vate donations. RRHF is part of the Honor Flight Network, a program con,: ceived in 2004 by Earl Morse, a; physician assistant and retired Air', Force captain. Currently, more, than 100 Honor Flight hubs across the country are actively working i to provide their local veterans, with a similar opportunity.  TIME TO' SAY: JOB WELL I)ONE!
