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.

After more than a year and a half, the Montana Supreme Court has put an end to the argument over which school district Brady residents should belong to.
In a ruling issued June 28, the Supreme Court upheld decisions made previously by a panel of county superintendents and a district court judge to not allow Brady residents to transfer their property taxes from the Dutton-Brady School District and join the Conrad School District.
“I think it’s a done issue,” said Michael Dahlem, attorney for the Conrad Public Schools. “We were sort of in an uphill battle all the way.”
D.K. Brooks, Superintendent for Dutton-Brady Schools, said he was pleased with the court’s decision.
“We’re happy that it has come to a conclusion,” he said.
