The road to state

It was a long but successful day for Ennis’ long-distance runners at the Belgrade XC Meet in Bozeman on Sep. 2. Freshman boys started the day at 10 a.m., with competitors pounding the pavement throughout the day, ending with middle school girls at 2:15 p.m.

A defeat on the road

The Mustangs gave it their all, but ultimately the Park City Panthers proved their prowess, defeating Ennis on Sep. 3 with a score of 44-20. Mustang Head Coach Mike Speck said, despite the loss, the boys saw what they are capable of doing, and the coaching staff is excited for them to put it all together for 48 minutes straight.

Goose Fire hits close to home

The haze of wildfire smoke has officially descended upon Madison County. While a number of blazes are to blame for the smokey smog, the largest contributor could be the Goose Fire. It’s burning in the Hidden, Cliff and Wade Lakes area in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, 32 miles south-southeast of Ennis near Hoodoo Pass.

From Normandy to Ennis

Among the 24,000 American, British and Canadian troops who landed at Normandy Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, were scores of Montanans. They included ranch kids from places like Choteau, Geyser and Sand Coulee. Thankfully, many made it back home and lived long lives.
