STAFF BLOG ON THE RECORD WITH BEN Why I love Q’s movies
Every now and again we need a mental reset button. I find the best way to escape is to get engulfed in a great movie.
Quentin Tarantinos movies tend to do that for me.

Rates for cabins along the Jamestown Reservoir will increase to $2,360 for year-round cabins and $1,180 for seasonal cabins for 2012.
Though several people who own cabins and lease land at the Reservoir requested that their rates be unchanged given increased costs because of high water, the Stutsman County Park Board could not oblige at its meeting Tuesday evening.
Releases were increased Thursday afternoon at Jamestown Reservoir from 1,550 cubic feet per second to 1,575 cfs. At Pipestem Reservoir, releases were held at 200 cfs. Including runoff within the city of Jamestown, these releases result in a flow of approximately 1,800 cfs at the James River at Jamestown stream gauge.
Levels at the Pipestem Dam and Jamestown Reservoir are at or near the conservation pool level, according to Bob Martin, dam manager for the Army Corps of Engineers. The conservation pool is the planned level of the lake for the winter months.
“The Pipestem is about 6 inches higher than normal at freeze-up,” Martin said. “The Jamestown Dam is at a normal level at freeze-up.”
Looking out of the window at Lakeside Marina across to the island it’s not difficult to see the level where high water reached during the floods of the past two years.
“It’s something I don’t think I’d ever want to go through again,” said Denny Lorenz, Stutsman County parks superintendent
From the marina’s new location, 20 feet higher than the old one, it’s hoped this building will stay dry for decades to come.
COLUMBUS, N.D. (AP) — State officials are trying to figure out what caused thousands of fish to die at a popular reservoir in northwest North Dakota.
The fish in the Short Creek Dam reservoir died after a downpour in the Columbus area late last week. The water has turned dark and smelly, and some shoreline vegetation is black.
It’s time for a long overdue thank you to all the people and agencies for getting boating access to the Jamestown Reservoir last summer in as timely a fashion as safely possible. This was a combined effort with the following agencies participating: Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation, the Stutsman County Park Board, North Dakota Game and Fish Department, Stutsman County Sheriff’s Department, Noel Johnson, Stutsman County Commission and Jerry Bergquist, emergency manager of Stutsman County. These people and agencies did a tremendous job in all the flood-related work last spring and summer and should know their efforts were greatly appreciated by all.
Releases from Jamestown Reservoir were decreased by 50 cubic feet per second at 2 p.m. Thursday, according to the Army Corps of Engineers, to 1,100 cfs.
Releases from Pipestem Reservoir remain at 600 cfs. Combined releases are 1,700 cfs.
The Army Corps of Engineers will increase releases from the Jamestown Dam by 100 cubic feet per second today, according to John Bartel, field officer for the James River basin for the corps. The increase will raise the combined releases to 1,800 cfs, the maximum planned for this spring.
Bartel made his report at the interagency meeting Tuesday at the Law Enforcement Center.
“Tomorrow (Wednesday) we’ll go up to 1,800 cfs and the system is operating as designed,” he said.
Releases from Jamestown Reservoir were increased by 200 cubic feet per second at 2 p.m. Monday to to 900 cfs, according to the Army Corps of Engineers. Releases from the reservoir had been increased to 700 cfs on Saturday.
Releases from Jamestown Reservoir were increased by 200 cubic feet per second in two increments Thursday, according to the Army Corps of Engineers, raising releases from to reservoir to 500 cfs. Releases from Pipestem Reservoir remained at 300 cfs, with combined releases totaling 800 cfs.
