  •   The Dillon Cubs laced 39 hits through four games to sweep the competition and win the 2015 Missoula Mavericks Class A Invitational Tournament last weekend.     After struggling at the Fourth of July Firecracker Tournament in Polson the previous weekend, the Cubs bounced back in Missoula to claim wins, all by at least four runs,...

The sixth inning was owned by the...
  • Heightened fire concerns due to lowered moisture levels inspired numerous local governments in western Montana to ban the use and sale of fireworks for this Fourth of July.
