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.
Others may have come and gone like the latest fashion trends, but The N’ Thing in Conrad remains. Bonnie Poser, owner, says she’s glad the ‘Sonny and Cher’ look never came back and should be proud to say that it’s her third time seeing ‘stirrup pants’.
Opening her doors in 1975, Poser only specialized in fashions for juniors and carried Gunne Sax Gowns. Over the years she has met the demand of her customers and has migrated to ladies’ updated clothing and has substantially expanded her prom business. She is now one of the largest prom retailers in the state. She says The N’ Thing is “the place for Canadian grads”, emphasizing that they don’t celebrate a prom.

At their regular meeting on Wednesday, the county commissioners took part in a conference call with the Regional Manager of the Montana Driver’s License Bureau the Northern Region.
The purpose of the call was to discuss changes in the service dates and on-site storage of camera equipment at the travel sites.
Conrad is considered a travel site in the region and the home base site is in Cut Bank.
After some discussion the commissioners agreed to allow the storage of the camera equipment at the courthouse which will mean more hours for the Conrad office. This comes from the fact that the driver’s examiner will not have to set up and take down the equipment to be moved to the next site.
