Introduced grass species creeping onto public lands are reducing diversity in the Prairie Pothole Region and threatening duck habitat:
North America’s grassland biome, exemplified mainly by the vast Great Plains, is arguably the continent’s most endangered major ecosystem, with widespread grassland declines attributed mainly to conversion agriculture.--US Fish and Wildlife Service.
As fire restrictions are posted on the Black Hills National Forest Doxy Denny Daugaard delivered disaster demands, delayed debate declaration.

Yesterday's drive by the Roubaix Cemetery in Lawrence County revealed that it's surrounded by increasingly drying second-growth pine.

Comes this from the Casper Star:
At issue are so-called county payments, a revenue sharing plan that’s existed since President Teddy Roosevelt created the national forests to protect timber reserves from the cut-and-run logging of the time. For nearly a century, hundreds of counties received a quarter of the revenue from the timber sold on federal land. In recent years, the law has acted as a subsidy for states and counties hard hit by logging declines triggered by measures to protect threatened species. The money is being used for roads, schools and emergency services and is a welcome addition to cash-strapped county coffers, especially in the Northwest.

The Hill reports that the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will vote Thursday. McCarthy currently runs the Office of Air and Radiation and Sen. don Juan Thune has been bought off by Powertech Uranium, hoping to mine in the failed red state; its stock is nearly worthless.
