Christmas came early with the county receiving a new transit service bus.
Commissioner Janice Hoppes tells the I-O, “We became part of the Golden Triangle Transit service in December of 2012.”
The Golden Triangle Transit is located in Shelby and coordinates the services of the Northern Transit Interlocal, Pondera, Toole and Glacier county transit.
There was a 20-gauge over/under shotgun stolen out of a van on Main Street near the Home Cafe early in the morning of Nov. 5.
Anyone with information about this theft is asked call the Conrad Police Department at 271-3623.
