Conrad will be celebrating its third annual National Night Out (NNO) on Aug. 2. NNO is a nationwide annual event in which our community began participating in 2009. NNO is designed to: 1. Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; 2. Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; 3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and 4. Send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

You couldn’t miss their motor-home style campaign bus, parked for awhile on Main Street last Thursday.
The Republican governor-lieutenant governor ticket of Neil Livingstone and Ryan Zinke stopped by the Home Café and met with a group of people and then chatted with customers before heading down the road to their next stop on the campaign trail.
While the election is more than a year away, candidate hopefuls are in full swing, vying for their respective offices and constituent votes.
Livingston and Zinke may be two of the most down to earth candidates voters will run across this election cycle, despite the fact they have four master’s degrees and a Ph.D. between them.
The elder Livingstone, age 64, was born in St. Louis. Raised in the state’s capital, he calls Helena home.
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.
