MT Parents Ask Walgreens to Clear Shelves of Toxins
HELENA, Mont. (NMB) - Montana parents who also are members of Montana Conservation Voters are asking Walgreens stores around the state to remove products from their shelves that have been shown to contain certain toxic chemicals - confirmed by test results from "HealthStuff.org". Robin Saha is a new parent, and a Montana Conservation Voters Board Member.

"So many chemicals are not tested for safety, and products with toxic chemicals are not well-regulated. It's nearly an impossible task to find out if unsafe chemicals are in the most of the products that my child will come in contact with."

Test results for 44 products, including school supplies and household cleaning goods, found high levels of chemicals that are linked to health issues. Examples of toxins detected include PVC plastics, flame retardants and lead. At the same time, the testing showed some products - such as a package of balloons - to be low-risk for toxins.

Tester Encourages Farmers to Apply for Aid
BIG SANDY, Mont. (NMB) - This past Tuesday was the first official day to sign up for support under the recently re-authorized livestock disaster assistance initiatives in the 2014 Farm Bill.

U.S. Senator and Big Sandy dry-land farmer Jon Tester helped pass the five-year Farm Bill earlier this year. It re-authorizes three livestock disaster assistance programs, including the Livestock Indemnity Program and Livestock Forage Disaster Program. Both of those programs had expired in 2011.

Tester says those programs are retroactive to October 1, 2011. He adds that Montanans should contact their local FSA offices for more information for applying.

Tadios Ordered to Help Pay for Attorney Fees
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (NMB) - The former CEO of the Rocky Boy Health Clinic accused of embezzling over $50,000 in federal funds has been ordered to pay a portion of the costs for her attorney. Fawn Tadios (TAH-dee-OHS) had previously fired four different court-appointed lawyers and had resorted to representing herself before prosecutors challenged her ability to pay for an attorney.

On Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Great Falls, Judge Brian Morris ordered Tadios to pay $500 a month for the legal services of attorney E. June Lord of Great Falls. Judge Morris concluded that Tadios' 2012 income of more than $100,000, coupled with her husband Jake Parker's yearly wages of $50,000 was more than enough financial support to help pay.

Judge Morris also vacated all previous hearing and trial dates, and re-scheduled Tadios' trial for June 25th at 9:00 AM.

Changes Upcoming for Monthly Recycle Drive
HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) - On the third Saturday of each month, a recycle drive is held by Recycle Hi-Line. A slight change to the schedule has been made for April, though. Normally, the drive would take place tomorrow, but officials decided to move it back a week because Easter is this weekend. The monthly drive will instead be held next Saturday, April 26th, in conjunction with the Havre PRIDE community cleanup day.

Over the past few months, the drive has been held at the Holiday Village Mall, but Recycle Hi-Line Chair Candi Zion says a new location will be utilized beginning with next week's drive.

"We're going to have our spring and summer hours now, and that will be at Pacific Steel and Recycling. And that's fantastic, since they're the people that take all of our metals and cardboard paper, so the site is just absolutely perfect for that."

For more information about recycling on the Hi-Line, you can call Zion at 265-9533.

Torgerson's Donates Tools to MSUN Students
HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) - On Thursday morning, Torgerson's and Case IH made a sizable donation to Montana State University-Northern. Torgerson's CEO Brian Torgerson says nearly $20,000 in equipment was given to Northern.

"Torgerson's is proud to continue the sponsorship and the partnership with MSU-Northern. We're just adding to that with basically a complete tool kit, from A to Z, to complete a bay from one end to the other."

Dean of the College of Technical Sciences Greg Kegel says the MSUN students came away impressed with the new tools.

"Equipment and instrumentation is the center part of any academic program. So, the kids needed it, and when they see stuff like this...This is brand new, and its shiny, and its nice, and it will be well-received by the students."

Torgerson's and MSUN have worked together over the last several years. Torgerson's has provided over $1 million in equipment for classroom labs and projects, while Northern has become Torgerson's top source for technicians and other positions.
