Here is Jim Fuglie’s semiannual update on the battle to save/plunder the Elkhorn Ranch, in the heart of the ND Badlands. You would think that with the oil boom on hiatus, these asswipes would be backing off from the insanity but nope, no time like the present to double down on the stupid, greedy, and irresponsible.
Jim Fuglie was a reporter, a legendary Director of Tourism for the state of ND (featured in People magazine back in the day), and a damn fine writer. Now days he blogs and watchdogs on a number of topics but none are more important that exposing the threats to the state’s great outdoors. We’re lucky to have such a diligent steward. I urge you all to read, study, and spread the word.
