Invasive Mussel Emergency / Yellowstone Bison Cull

Missoulian: Yellowstone park looks at large bison cull to trim herds
Bison Management
“The protection and recovery of bison in Yellowstone is one of the great triumphs of American conservation. In 1902, after years of market hunting and poaching, there were only two dozen bison left in Yellowstone. Over the next hundred years, park employees worked to bring this species back from the brink of extinction. We succeeded, and now face the challenge of helping to manage a rapidly growing population of migratory bison that frequently roam beyond our borders onto private land and land managed by other agencies.”

Sugar and Sweeteners Outlook
“U.S. sugar production in 2015/16 is estimated to be 8.989 million STRV, an 82,000-STRV increase from the previous month’s estimate. This is primarily due to the 95,000-STRV increase in estimated beet sugar production, due to the relatively larger September production of the current crop.”

Elouise Cobell / Addition in America

“Elouise Cobell was a Blackfeet Tribal community leader and an advocate for Native American self-determination and financial independence.  She used her expertise in accounting to champion a lawsuit that resulted in a historic settlement, restoring tribal homelands to her beloved Blackfeet Nation and many other tribes, and in so doing, inspired a new generation of Native Americans to fight for the rights of others.”
