Abandoned Vehicles Need To Be Moved

If a vehicle cannot be moved under its own power, it shall be moved for them.

Commissioners Discuss Special Waste Landfill

Steve Burns and John McCain of Carlson McCain Inc. addressed the Roosevelt County Commissioners on the proposal to build a special waste landfill on Highway 16 north of Culbertson during the commissioners’ weekly meeting Monday, March 3.
McCain noted that the application has been completed and submitted. He gave a copy of the application to the commissioners for their use. The commissioners were assured they would keep them updated on the status of the approval.
The current entrance to the proposed landfill borders the property of Cliff Thompson and is most convenient for McCain, Inc. as its entrance will be right off Highway 16.
When questions began to arise, the two representatives assured the commissioners that due to the number of special waste landfills located in North Dakota, they don’t expect much to be shipped to the Culbertson area from North Dakota.

Going From Victim To Hero

The definition of cruelty is the deliberate, intentional infliction of pain or suffering. According to Dr. George Simon, PhD., there are three categories of cruelty. They are:
1. Unwitting abusers who, for whatever reason, truly do not understand that they are being abusive.
2. Immature abusers that intentionally do harm to animals but lack the mental faculties to understand that it is wrong to do so.
3. Those that know they are doing wrong but derive satisfaction from harming others. For them, it is all about power. These people often lack what they perceive as power is other areas of their life so they focus on those more vulnerable than themselves to inflict pain on.
The vast majority of society knows that cruelty, in any form, is not an acceptable behavior. They realize that abusing children, the elderly, the disabled or animals is clearly wrong and unacceptable behavior. And yet, cruelty is all around us.
