Being in the journalism business can be disillusioning if you don’t set aside time to enjoy the good news. That’s why I love working at The Madisonian – we prioritize and celebrate happy stories.
Back in action … and just a little sore!
I was out on a fun assignment last Friday. To celebrate Earth Day, I tagged along with Ennis Elementary School students as they conquered the town of Ennis and surrounding areas with trash bags in hand.
Hi readers! I first met Doug Stonebreaker, a Twin Bridges resident, in February 2014. It was a few months after I moved to Madison County, and I was still woefully ignorant about many things that make Montana special. One of those being bowhunting.
When I moved to Montana, I knew next to nothing about cattle. I knew I thought they were tasty, but that’s about it. I’ve learned a lot since I’ve called Madison County home, especially this year.––
I know, I know, moisture is a good thing. Last week, I chatted with Lucas Zukiewicz, water supply specialist with the Natural Resources and Conservation Service, and our conversation ended the way it usually does.
Last time you guys heard from me on the health page, I told you about purchasing Eddie, the first horse that is solely my responsibility. He’s a 4-year-old quarter horse gelding and he’s been a treat the month I’ve called him mine.
The third week of March is a special one because the Irish, and many others, celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day! Though at its core, Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday commemorating the death of Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, it is more than that. It’s amazing how the celebration of a small island across the big pond has become a cultural holiday in many countries, especially the United States.
Sometimes, I say that as a mantra. I’d rather be busy than bored. I’d rather be busy than bored. I’d rather be busy than bored.
As an inner city bred gal, last weekend was my first hands-on introduction to actual ranch work. Since little Eddie – my new horse – and I are always looking for adventures, we accepted an invitation to help work cows before a branding.
