As a special for the I-O we will be running a bi-monthly ‘Spotlight on Business’ with an emphasis on their contributions to our community and their history.
After it sat dormant for five years, Randy and Anne Stordahl bought the building at 706 S. Delaware. The two worked diligently to completely renovate the building and turn half of it into A Shear Happiness beauty salon and the other half into Tiny Tots Daycare which is run by Rose Griggs.
Anne commented that she forsaw that Conrad was going to be the place where they raised their family and she had already been doing hair for 10 years. She decided to invest in property and the rest is history.
The Montana Department of Environmental Quality is accepting public comment on an application from Montana Alberta Tie Ltd. and MATL LLP., co-permittees for the Montana Alberta Tie Transmission Line, to amend their Certificate of Compliance under the Major Facility Siting Act (MFSA). The Certificate of Compliance authorizes construction and operation of the Montana portion of a 230-kV line between Great Falls and the Montana-Alberta border northeast of Cut Bank.
If approved, the certificate amendment would allow modification of the location for the line in two areas: 1.3-mile relocation roughly 8.7 miles east of Dutton and a second 1- mile relocation about 6.5 miles northeast of Valier.
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.
Our local event in Conrad is organized by Police Chief Gary Dent, the Conrad Chamber of Commerce and Jamey Byrnes with Gary & Leo’s IGA.
The Conrad Lion’s Club also sponsors this event and cooks their famous Whoop-Up burgers.
It will take place on August 2, from 5-9 p.m. and features demonstrations by law enforcement, a mobile DUI unit, crime lab, fire trucks and equipment, a stealth helicopter (weather permitting) and Border Patrol demonstrations, just to name a few.
