The Conrad swim team traveled to Columbia Falls over the holiday weekend and placed third.
There were 316 swimmers that participated in the meet.
Highlighting the meet for the Conrad team was junior swimmer Hunter Mycke who came away with high point honors.
Following are the individual results from the different classes:
SUNDOGS — There was a strange ring around the sun on Monday afternoon. The ring is caused by cirrus clouds and moisture as high as 30,000 feet where temperatures are well below freezing. The moisture turns into crystals. The sun reflects off these ice crystals making a halo or ring. Not always, but folklore has it that a ring around the sun means rain is coming within 24 hours, but not always. Cirrus clouds are generally the first layer of clouds that are seen as a storm system. Sundogs, as it sometimes is referred to are mentioned as far back as early Greece. The origin of the name sundogs may be in the tail-like ray of white light sometimes sticking out at one end.

The Independent-Observer will be closed on Friday, July 1 through July 4 for the Holiday.
We will be back to work on Tuesday. Due to the holiday the I-O will be mailed on Thursday instead of its normal Wednesday time.
We hope that everyone has a terrific and safe holiday with family and friends. Be careful and watchful if you are driving out of town and we’ll see you next week!

Debby Perry, Meadowlark, Prairie View and Utterback Middle School counselor, was nominated for and has been awarded the Montana School Counselor Award, MSCA.
Perry was nominated by Principal Craig Barringer, soon to be UMS Principal Tara Thielman and Becky Meier. Her nominators wrote, “Mrs. Perry epitomizes what we look for in educators and counselors. Her ‘can do’ attitude is infectious. She is a leader by example in our district, and our school system is a much better place to work because of all she does for staff, students, families and our community.”
Perry was surprised as she was presented her award by her nominators at the MSCA School Counseling conference in Bozeman in April. Four counselors were recognized in the state.
