BISMARCK--Southwestern North Dakota legislators told me this morning that they still have hope for funding for a Theodore Roosevelt resource center in Dickinson.

Dickinson State University has completed digitizing more than 250,000 Theodore Roosevelt documents held by the Library of Congress.
Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., and Dr. James Hutson, chief of the Library of Congress’ manuscripts division, were on hand for the ceremony to mark the effort.
Good for Sen. Byron Dorgan for facing down the National Park Service on the issue of the elk in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. As I understand it, the NPS has to thin the elk herd and they talked about hiring federal sharpshooters and helicopters to take the meat out.
Six public meetings have wrapped up to get comments on how to control the elk population in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and park officials say they’re pleased with the process.
Meetings were held in Dickinson, Fargo, Grand Forks, Minot, Mandan and Medora over the past week.
A biologist at Theodore Roosevelt National Park says efforts by the state Game and Fish Department to increase hunting around the park have helped keep elk numbers down, even though the park still has too many of the animals.
The National Park Service says a January survey has found an estimated 878 elk in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt Na-tional Park. It said that’s more than twice the goal but not enough to change the park’s environment.
The National Park Service has released a report on possible ways to thin an overpopulated elk herd at North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Officials said action to cull the herd is at least a year away.

With the number of elk in Theodore Roosevelt National Park topping 1,000, park officials say they expect to release a draft plan next month on how to reduce the elk population.
The goal is to have an elk herd of a more manageable size of about 360 animals.
A roundup of 182 bison in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park has been completed early with little stress on the animals or people involved, the park superintendent says.
“We did it in two days instead of three because of the weather,” park Superintendent Valerie Naylor said Thursday. Rain and sleet began as the roundup was finishing up, she said.
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department, in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Theodore Roosevelt, has developed an award that will recognize North Dakota youth who have advanced outdoor skills and are active in Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or 4-H.
