It’s time again for the Marias Fair and we all know what that means - carnival rides, fair food, good times and the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Day. The fourth annual TETWP day will be held on July 23. Wearing pink that day will show your support for those battling breast cancer and also helps fund those same individuals through the Hi-Line Women Against Breast Cancer.
The Hi-Line WABC is a non-profit organization that provides not only moral support but financial support for women in and around the Hi-Line battling breast cancer. Whether it’s paying for gas or just being there in their times of need, the Hi-Line WABC members help to make things easier for those with breast cancer. When you wear pink to the Fair on July 23, the Marias Fair Board will support the organization with a donation to support WABC’s work.

Saturday was just one more fine day on the golf course as 10 teams were out for a four-person, Pondera Medical Center, scramble to help raise funds for hospital equipment.
In the men’s division, the team of Mark Jones, Kyle Kavanagh, Dustin Erickson and Rylan Hanson held on and managed to put together a round of 65 for the tournament, which played out to a par 72- 6,277 yards.
That score was good enough to edge out the team of Tom Billings, Paul Stenerson, Buck Traxler and Andy Vandolah who fashioned a round of 67.
In the mixed division, the squad of Dr. Jay Taylor, Monica Taylor, Dr. John Taylor and Todd, the Music Man, Truscott blistered the course with a neat round of 60, 12 under par.

“In by Christmas, that’s our goal,” Dale Nelson of Nelson Architects in Great Falls told the county commissioners at a meeting in the last week of November, 2010.
That was in reference to the remodeling project being done at the new community/senior center on Virginia Street.
He probably should have added that it might be Christmas 2011 but even that may be a stretch.
Thursday, the commissioners met with Mark Blom of Nelson Architects and Cheryl Curry of the Pondera Regional Port Authority in regards to the “stall in progress” at the community center.
According to the commissioners, At Home Flooring needs to begin installing the flooring, however, the site has not been properly prepared. In addition there are several items of the project that need to be finished before flooring can be installed.
