Service on the fly

Service members were heavy on the minds of many over the last week as communities celebrated Memorial Day. Three current service members were also recently honored, in this case with a complimentary fly fishing experience at Madison Double R.

The red flag

Picture this: a pandemic happens, everyone decides to embark upon home improvement projects and couch purchases skyrocket. As the pandemic starts to seem a bit more manageable, you find yourself moving to a new town to begin the next step in your career. The problem is you do not own a couch and all couches are backordered through the summer.

On track for success

The Montana State Class C track and field competition takes place May 28-29 in Missoula. The top seven athletes from each divisional event move on to the grand finale. Here’s a list of the talented Madison County athletes that made the cut.

Their first divisional matchup was on May 20 against Loyola, winning 15-5. The next day dealt an early 20-1 loss against Mission-Arlee-Charlo.
