    My name is Chris Dschaak.  I am currently in my 3rd year as Mayor of Wolf
    Point, MT.  During this legislative session, our legislatures will be
    considering different bills addressing the short fall with MDT and trying
    to get Montana Cities and Towns money for the failing infrastructure.  The
    City Council in Wolf Point, as with others, has voted to become members of
    the Montana Infrastructure Coalition.  I support strongly the Bills going
    forward from the Coalition, Bills that will make our State stronger by
    finally addressing the failing infrastructure that’s plaguing us. If
    nothing is done, this will be the 3rd consecutive legislation that the
    State, Governor, and our Representatives have failed to help the
    struggling Eastern part of the State.  Even with the amount of money this
    part of the State has brought in with the Bakken Oil, it seems that we are
    still forgotten.

    Jim Beers retired from the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  After working for the Utah Fish & Game and spending four years as a Reserve Officer in the US Navy, he joined the US Fish & Wildlife Service in the late 1960’s and was stationed in Devils Lake, North Dakota; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Grand Island, Nebraska; New York City; and Washington, DC. He served as a wildlife biologist, wetlands biologist, special agent, and refuge manager.  While in Washington Jim was a Congressional Fellow, the Chief of Operations for the National Wildlife Refuge System, the Program Coordinator for the Animal Damage Control Program, and the wildlife biologist in the Central Office who served as Project Officer on nearly all national wildlife projects funded with Pittman-Robertson money.


    He was in Washington when the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the Endangered Species Acts were implemented and he watched the Federal government evolve from a medium of environmental managers to a tool of environmental and animal rights extremists.


    Jim became aware of the pilferage of millions of dollars from State fish and wildlife excise taxes by US Fish and Wildlife Service managers in the late 1990’s.  He testified before Congress about the misuse of the funds and a GAO audit verified that $45 to $60 Million had been taken in a two year period. Jim was forced to retire under very adverse circumstances.  He spent 10 months at home on full pay and received a cash settlement.


    Today Jim writes and speaks about wildlife, animal rights, environmental, and government issues.

    Joining me will be Loren BirdRattler Project Manager and MSU Tribal Extension Agent Verna Billedeaux.  We would like to provide an update on the development of the Blackfeet Agriculture Resource Management Plan (ARMP) a project that was funded under a 638 contract, a contract that allows Tribes to be contracted to carry out federal functions, between the Blackfeet Tribe and the U.S. government’s Department of Interior – Bureau of Indian Affairs.  In this case, the ARMP will create policy for both the Blackfeet Tribe and the U.S. government in land, water and conservation management practices.  A major goal for the ARMP is to create an environment through public policy that benefits our Tribal producers in their endeavors and to explore ways to infuse institutional knowledge from an aging Montana farmer and rancher population to our younger folks through programs like 4-H.  Verna Billedeaux will be on hand to provide the update on our efforts for our Tribal 4-H program, its challenges, its successes, and how we are using the program to address the above mentioned goal.
