Olson Clearwater County Treasurer O9c by Alden Wold The Clearwater County Long Lake Association President Michael Miller wrote the Clearwater County Board on behalf of the association to express concerns over ATV usage in the lake area. The Heart Lake Road extends from the Long Lake Campground back to the Heart Lake public access and, according to Miller's letter, the road is being used by ATV operators. Part of the problem, according to Miller, is that there are no designated ATV trails in the area. One consequence of the lack of trails is that ATV operators are ignoring private property and "blazing trails" through lake association memberd' properties. Some of the damage is occurring next to the county campground. Miller termed the Heart Lake Road a "low visibility road" and is concerned over the safety issue of meeting ATVs on the road. Miller asked that the County Board instruct the sheriff to investigate the matter and see that "rules governing the use of ATVs be strictly enforced at our end of the county." A second area of concern to the lake association is the number of campers allowed at any one site in the qampground at Long Lake. Land Commissioner Bruce Cox has oversight of the campground, and he told the commissioners that the campsites are figured for four people with the basic fee and each additional person is an extra $1, with no restrictions on the number of extra campers at the sites. The commissioners instructed Cox to formulate a response to the letter along with input from Sheriff Dennis Trandem and County Attorney Kip Fontaine. Another issue Cox addressed with the commissioners was the need to appoint timber sealers that would then be approved by the Commissioner of Natural Resources. The need for such appointments arises out of a Minnesota statute that states, "no timber, except hardwood pulpwo(xt may be removed from county administered tax forfeit land until scaled by a person designated by the County Board and approved by the Commissioner of Natural Resources". Cox recommended the board approve Cox himself, forester Nick Severson, and James Ojanen, forest technician with the Clearwater County Land Department. The County Board approved the recommendations which were forwarded to the Commissioner of Natural Resources. Cox gave a report on the forest road conditions in the southern portion of the county. Federal Emergency Management money totaling $16,000 is helping to bring the roads back to conditions found prior to the flash flood earlier this year. Cox said the DNR and the county were in a co-op agreement to crush 4,000 yards of gravel. Part of the problem now is to get the gravel spread before it is too late, and Cox asked the board for verbal approval to hire a portion of the graveling work out. Mile Fultz supervises the road maintenance, and Cox was certain that Fultz could accomplish one half of what needs to be done. Cox said the amount needed to supplement Fultz's efforts would be less than what would require advertising for bids, and the commissioners told Cox to proceed with the graveling. Commissioner Ken Solberg reminded Cox that the county has set a minimum of insurance needed by road contractors at $1,000,000 of liability coverage. Cox acknowledged that but said that he had already been requiring that of private contractors. County Board Chairman Duane Hayes asked his fellow commissioners if they had any problem waiving the three-day notice required before any action is taken on a motion. The commissioners all agreed to move ahead and allowed Cox to spend up to $10,000, and Cox, along with the chair of the Tax Forfeit Committee, Dean Newland, can approve the by Senator Mark Dayton Oct. 4, 2002 As a Senator, I cannot imagine a more important decision than committing our nation and armed forces to war. We are now debating such a resolution for the second time in 13 months. After Sept. 11, 2001, the threat to our national security was immediate, and the decision to authorize military force was clear. Now, however, there appears to be no imminent threat to the United States from Iraq. If there were, the Bush Administration could not have decided last summer to delay this unveiling until September because, in the words of White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Jr., "from a marketing point of view, you don't bring out new products in August." Because Iraq's threat is not immediate, and because U.N. diplomatic efforts are just under way, I believe it is unwise and unnecessary for Congress to vote now on a future use of military force. Yet the President wants that pre-approval, and a majority of Congress is ready to give it to him. I will not make my final decisions on any of the resolutions now before us, until we vote on them next week. Before I do vote, I will state my views that Congress is rushing these momentous decisions unnecessarily and irresponsibly. The President is properly withholding his final decision on U.S. military action to give the United Nations' efforts a last chance to succeed. Congress should wait along with the President. The United States Constitution is emphatically clear: Congress alone "shall declare war." Our nation's founders placed the President in charge of our military forces as the Commander-in-Chief. Thus, the President always has the power and the authority to defend the country against any attack or to prevent one. However, as an essential check and balance, our Founders gave to Congress, not the President, the authority to start a war. For some reason, however, Congress stopped declaring wars after World War II. They passed no declaration of war during either the Korean or Vietnam conflicts, • which might surprise graveling agreement. Cox also shared with the commissioners a comparison of aspen prices over the last 10 years that was compiled by Koochiching County's Land Department. The graph reflects timber prices from nine different counties. Clearwater aspen prices were lowest, near $8 per cord in 1993, while Beltrami was highest with near $17.50 that year. The wind damage of 1995 dropped the per cord price to near $2.50 in the county during 1996. A sharp rise the following year of 1997 and steady rises since then have brought the price up near $34 per cord during the first half of 2002. Two of the nine counties are lower in price than Clearwater County, but all nine counties are within $7 of each other during the first half of 2002. veterans who fought in them and rightfully considered them wars. Instead of declarations of war, Congress passed resolutions authorizing the use of military force by the President. I suspect that those Congresses found it convenient to pass the buck on those enormous decisions to Presidents. If all went well, they could share the credit. If it went badly, they could avoid the blame. Thus, after the failed Cuban invasion, President Kennedy observed, "Success has a thousand fathers, but failure is an orphan." Congress did not cop out completely, however. They have been very deliberative and conservative in authorizing any use of military force. After Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990, Congress took five months before authorizing what became the Persian Gulf War. The U.S. military buildup proceeded during that time, and the first assault began shortly after the resolution was passed. When Hussein bounced U.N. inspectors out of Iraq in 1998, Congress again deliberated for five months before passing a resolution, one that did not even authorize President Clinton to use military force. Then-Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott said at the time, "The Senate is known for its deliberate actions. And the longer I stay in the Senate, the more I have learned to appreciate it. It does help to give us time to think about the potential problems and the risks and the ramifications and to, frankly, press the administration.'" So why is Congress rushing to judgment at this time? It is for political advantage in the upcoming election, rather than diplomatic or military necessity. If the President needed Congress to show Saddam Hussein our united resolve that he shall never possess nuclear weapons or the capability to use any weapons of mass destruction against us, we would pass that resolution immediately. If the United Nations should fail to exact Iraq's swift compliance with its .previous restrictions, Congress could reconvene whenever necessary to vote a declaration of war. My proposed procedure would follow no political timetable. It would follow the Constitution.
