Mary_ Dickinson Secretary Published in the Adams County Record on March 07, 2012 * March 14, 2012 * March 21, 2012 Adams County Commissioners Catching Up With Flood Damage by Lee Buy Weed Department Supervisor Dave Klaw has worked on fulfilling the new EPA require- ments for weed spraying in the county near water sources. Klaw present- ed the Commissioners with three agreements that will provide up to $58,000 in funding for weed control in the coun- ty in 2012. The Bureau of Land Management is renewing a contract worth up to $9,000, and the Forest Service is renewing a five year agreement worth about $7,000 each year. The State of Idaho agreed to extend their cost sharing for another year, which resulted in $42,000 in 2011 and could be more in 2012. Klaw has worked to smooth out spending the stimulus funds over several sea- sons but must complete using them up by 2013. Road and Bridge Supervisor Tom Glenn reported that the por- tion of road being rebuilt aboveGoodrich Creek should be known as Wilson Road. Commission Chairman Bill Brown reported on his negotiations with the landowners who will be selling a new right of way for the rebuilt portion of this road. Flood waters in June, 2010, washed out the roadbed and made it necessary to move the road out of the creek bed. Supervisor Glenn will be advertising for construc- tion bids for rebuilding the bridge over Goodrich Creek during 2012. Heavy rains over the past week caused some major flooding to occur in the county, and in partic- ular inside New Meadows city limits. Mayor Julie Spelman from New Meadows appeared to discuss how the county can help divert runoff waters around the city. Most of the City of New Meadows is built in a flood plain, and rapid runoff has caused flood- ing several times in the past. Chairman Bill Brown authorized con- structing a dike at the south end of town and locating a larger cul- vert to divert Big Creek around the town. Road and Bridge issues dominated most of the meeting this week. The Department will close off South Grey's Creek Road until it can dry out some. Several areas of Grey's Creek Road will be scheduled for repav- ing later this year. The Commissioners request- ed that Supervisor Glenn prepare a list of roads that need sched- uled over-lays within the next couple of years. The Commissioners also asked Glenn to layout angled park- ing on the West side of the Courthouse and to repaint the parking lot dividers. Sheriff Rich Green reported that the State of Idaho Fish and Game Department has changed their policies regarding having the local sheriffs hold evidence, particu- larly guns, while waiting for trials. Fish and Game will now hold their own evidence and will collect revenue when confiscat- ed items are sold within the county. Chairman Brown suggested to Sheriff Green that the department develop and publish written proce- dures on handling adver- tising and sales of guns seized in criminal inves- tigations. During the Monday meeting, County Treasurer Connie Kesler presented a ietter announcing her pending retirement for May 31, 2012.

Shelly Gannon CLERK OF THE DISTRICT COURT By: Melissa Conklin Deputy Clerk Published in the Adams County Record on March 14, 2012 March 21, 2012 * March 28, 2012 * April 04, 2012 April 11, 2012 & The Continued from front page having so successfully ridded the park of them, so they continued kill- ing elk." "In the late 1960s, local hunters began to complain to their congressmen that there were too few elk, and the congressmen threatened to stop funding Yellowstone. Killing elk was given up as a response, and then the population of the elk increased exponentially. With the rapid increase in the number of elk, the condition of the land again went downhill quickly. The destruction of the landscape affected many other animals. With the wolves gone, the population of coyotes increased dramatically, which led to an extreme decrease in the number of pronghorn antelope. However, the increase in the elk population caused the most profound change in the ecosystem of Yellowstone after the wolves were gone." Shortly after wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone, elk avoided river bottoms where they are apparently more susceptible to wolf attacks. Willow growth along streams and rivers began making a recovery after years of over- browsing by elk. Beaver began to re-colonize areas of the park where willows were recovering, in turn creating wetland habitat for a number of other specialist species of plants, insects, amphibians and birds. The shade along the streams provided cooler water that is needed by juvenile fish. This effect is known as a trophic cascade, where a change affecting one species higher up the food chain indirectly affects those lower down. So, it seems obvious that wolves do benefit the ecosystem in places like Yellowstone. The issue here, then, seems to be, "Where else is this effect from wolves relevant?" There are few places in the world like Yellowstone National Park, except for other parks where hunting and human activity are limited or prohibited. One would guess this benefit from predation could probably also be seen in wilderness areas or very remote areas where human activity is very limited, if elk numbers would otherwise be over an optimal level. A study, "The Impact of Native Ungulates and Beaver on Riparian Communities in the Intermountain West" by Charles E. Kay, Utah State University, had this to say about elk damaging riparian areas: "Similar wildlife/riparian interactions occur in other Westem national parks, including Rocky Mountain, Olympic, Mount Rainier, Grand Teton, Banff, and Jasper, where ungulates have been allowed to concentrate in wetlands areas. Similar conditions also exist in western Wyoming where large populations of elk are maintained by winter feeding." The study concluded, "While alteration of riparian communities has been most frequently documented on wintering areas, native ungulates can also have severe negative effects on riparian habitats on higher elevation summer ranges." One area where such effects have been noted is in the upper Gallatin River area in Montana. The Gallatin River starts in Yellowstone National Park, and runs northwest, and is a wintering area for elk herds. These large numbers of wintering elk have caused damage to willows along the river. A 2004 study in the upper Gallatin Range of Southwestern Montana concluded, "If similar top-down effects upon vegetation hold true in other regions of North America and other parts of the world where wolves have been extirpated, wolf recovery may represent a management option for helping to restore riparian plant communities and conserve biodiversity." I can't see that elk have ever over browsed riparian areas in places like Adams County. Cattle certainly tend to congregate in, and cause damage to, some riparian areas, which is why you see streams fenced off. Dr. Craig White from Idaho Fish & Game said places like Yellowstone receive millions of dollars to study things like this, but state agencies simply don't have the funding. I put calls in to several Forest Service range and wildlife specialists. The only one I could contact in time for this article was Amy Baumer, the range conservationist for the New Meadow, Ranger District. She hac never heard of elk ovel browsing or overgrazin anyplace in our area. Jim Beers weighed ir on this, asking why th~ managers at Yellowstone didn't maintain lower elk numbers with hunting. But according to the experience there, hunting didn't effectively keep elk out of river bottoms. I have to wonder ff over-brows~ of riparian areas happens in places wher~ human activity occurs. I've never heard of big groups of elk lounging around in creek bottoms for any length of time in our aYea. Are there areas, other than parks, where this happens? I don't know. Of the beneficial "trophic cascade" referred to above, Beers said, "These effects and their relative importance (to humans, or the Yellowstone 'environment') are trifling changes made into mountainous results of an otherwise catastrophic (to hunters, ranchers, rural economies and state governments) venture.". As becomes obvious in studying the issue of wolves, it is often just as much a political/social issue as it is a scientific issue. Whose values take precedence? Since most people live in urban areas, I have to wonder ff a lot of them have an image of rural America, or the West, as being like Yellowstone... or short of this, that it should be like Yellowstone. A number of rural foiks have formed the opinion that these people want everyplace outside of cities to be completely "natural," meaning where humans have no place in the picture. I always go back to life being a matter of balance. Few issues are black and white. In my opinion, this aspect of how wolves might benefit the ecosystem seems like it might have some validity under certain conditions. Whether those conditions are relevant in much of the West, plus outweigh the negative effects on humans seems debatable.
