June 2, 2014 The Star Page 9 McKayla Lindgren, above, and Cory Thomas, at left, were two of the final five participants last week in Turtle Mountain Icon. Musical contest whittled down to final four By Logan Davis For The Star The music filling the packed gym- nasium was pure entertainment last Tuesday night during the competi- tion at the Turtle Mountain Idol event in Belcourt. Five of the last perform- ers gave it their all and the judges were all amazed by the hits that just kept on coming. The five remaining contestants were McKayla Lindgren, Cory Thomas, Kasie Bercier, Austin Thomas and Wyatt Johnson. Each contestant was given two songs in the first go-around and then wrapped up the night with a third and final song to accumulate as many votes as they could. In the end, the night spelled the last night of com- petition for Cory Thomas, who was in his first year of competing in the competition. Making it to the top five was something Thomas never ex- pected and he is happy that he was able to keep singing through the many weeks of competition at Turtle Mountain Icon. Some of the highlights of the evening were the fantastic old rock songs, which included Bercier's ren- dition of "Hotel California" and Lindgren's energetic version of Janis Joplin's "Piece of my Heart". Austin Thomas got the crowd rocking with Del Shannon's "Runaway" and Cory Thomas electrified the audience with the Gary Allan country hit, "Half of my Mistakes". Johnson also gave it his all on Tracy Chapman's, "Give me One More Reason." The five sang all of their songs with great emotion and each seemed to be con- fident and moved around the stage a lot while singing in perfect tune and NDSU releases pest management app Three North Dakota State Uni- versity Extension Service publica- o,,tions ar e available on one app for smartphone and tablet users. "Tl6fte a-pp cOntai e:"North Dakota Weed Control Guide," "Field Crop Fungicide Guide" and "Insect Management Guide." Some of the tools in the app give users the ability to search by crop or pest to find solutions to problems or recommended treatments. Growers also are able to save or mark their fa- vorite areas. Pictures of pests, weeds and diseased plants are included to make in-field comparisons. Crops included in the NDSU Pest Management app are corn, soybeans, dry beans, sunflowers, sugar beets, potatoes and small grains. Additional crops may be added in the future. Because the app is a dynamic tool, it can be updated at any time with the latest information, compared with the printed versions of each guide. Lead authors of the publications are Richard Zollinger, NDSU Exten- sion weed specialist and plant sci- ences professor; Sam Markell, Extension plant pathologist and as- sistant professor; and Janet Knodel, Extension entomologist and associ- ate professor. The commodity groups support- ing the planning, implementation and ongoing maintenance of the app are the North Dakota Corn Council, North Dakota Soybean Council, Sugarbeet Research and Education Board, North Dakota Wheat Com- mission, Northarvest Bean Growers Association, Northern Plains Potato Growers Association and National Sunflower Association. "For almost a year, Angela Kazmierczak, weed science research specialist, spearheaded the collabo- ration among researchers, Extension faculty and commodity groups," Zollinger says. "Hundreds of hours were invested in loading detailed in- formation into the software app on identification, prevention and treat- ment of weeds and pests in North Dakota crops," Technical work was done by Myriad Devices, a company based in the NDSU Research and Technology Park incubator and founded by NDSU Electrical and Computer En- gineering faculty and students.

Week of May 23 through May 29 ADMISSIONS Mary Allard, Belcourt Dorothy Trottier, Rolla Violet Delonais, Belcourt DISCHARGE Mary Allard, Belcourt harmony with the live backup band. Voting is done by audience members who attend to support their choice in the event. The three judges, Lance Azure, Derrick Dixon and Julie Mc- Cloud only are there to give feedback and critique each performer. Turtle Mountain Icon has given many local singers a chance to gain self-confidence in themselves and develop their singing talent. The other important part is the audience members who are made up of family and friends who support each per- former. Last week, Turtle Mountain Icon brought in a guest performer to entertain the crowd. Mic Jordan is a local hip hop artist who creates his own music and lyrics. He is a local tribal member, Jordan Brien, who is proud of his native roots and her- itage. One of his hip hop originals was called "Modem Day Warrior", which really ignited the young audi- ence members as they ran to the front of the stage during Mic Jordan's time on stage. The competition has seen many performers in the last several weeks and next Monday, it is the "Final Four" of the event, so things are going to get really interesting -- and just as entertaining as it has been since Turtle Mountain Icon began.
