  •   Having determined that the Clark Canyon Reservoir ice has grown thick enough to safely support the contestants, organizers decided to go forward with Saturday’s 31st Annual Stan Shafer Ice Fishing Derby, proceeds from which will go to support Beaverhead Search & Rescue. “We’re definitely going to have it,” said...
  •           This is not a drill.   On Thursday morning, Beaverhead County High School received a bomb threat for the second time in four months and the third time in the past two school years.  While the previous threats proved to be hoaxes, the school immediately called local law enforcement and began evacuation...
  •   The University of Montana Western men’s basketball team made it an unlucky 13 for its opponents, with a hard-fought 73-64 victory over visiting Westminster College in Straugh Gymnasium on Saturday. And the normally fast-breaking, high-flying Bulldogs (15-3 overall, 3-0 in the Frontier Conference) had to gouge a new route into the win...
  •   The second-ranked Dillon Beavers traveled to Belgrade last Tuesday and outlasted the Panthers 49-48 in overtime.  The road trip continued Saturday at Hamilton where Dillon extended their undefeated league season to 5-0 with a convincing 68-36 win over the Broncs.   Belgrade, a member of the Central A, is a quality non-conference...

The Bulldogs (15-3 overall, 3-0 in the Frontier Conference) extended their winning streak to a baker’s dozen with a hard fought, 73-64 victory over visiting Westminster in Straugh Gymansium on Saturday afternoon. And they found yet another...
  •   To the editor,   Well, I see that the Great Idaho Wolf Hunt was a resounding success - for the wolves.  Once again Idaho “hunters” have wet the bed in their effort to make the State safe for democracy, or whatever type of government it is that they have over there, and killed exactly zero (that’s right, count...
  •   To the editor,   It appears that the tea-party has a solid foothold on the Republican majority at the 64th Legislature. Listening to the rhetoric of members, Art Wittich, Austin Knudsen and Jeff Essman during the House Rules committee confirms the extreme ideology of the right.  Amendments to  remove rules requiring super...
  •   Beaverhead County High School Superintendent Fred Chouinard submitted his official notification of retirement effective June 30 of this year, at Monday’s meeting of the BCHS Board of Trustees.  Trustee Chairman Gary Love “regretfully accepted” the notification. Chouinard unofficially announced his intention to retire...
