Go Cats Go! That will be the chant heard quite often on June 3 as the Golden Triangle Bobcat Booster Club hosts a tailgate party at the Ringside Ribs in Shelby.
Football Coach Bob Ash will be present with other MSU folks to highlight the 2010 season, talk about the upcoming season, and just mix and mingle with the area Bobcat fans.
The evening is slated to start at 5 p.m. featuring live auctions (Cat/Griz tickets plus a nights lodging), drawings and just plain old fun like what happens at a tailgate party.
So be sure to mark June 3 on your calendar and show Coach Ash what great Bobcat fans live in northern Montana.
Tickets can be purchased from Debbie Hicks (278-7583 or 278-3963) and sponsorships are also being sold.

In the comfy confines of the Conrad High School auditorium, for the second time, the 15th annual staff and employee recognition program took place.
Jan Carter, the outgoing school trustee chairperson gave a short welcome, noting, “All of you should be recognized for all you do.”
Superintendent of Schools Lynn Utterback, who is retiring at the end of the school year, told the assembled teachers and staff, “We are fortunate to have quality people here.”
With that, he and CHS Principal Ken Larson awarded service pins of which 12 were given.

On a 4-0 vote council members passed the second reading of Ord.-402.
The ordinance deals with noxious weeds and removal costs if a city crew has to come in and mow down weeds/grass on a property.
Essentially it will cost a property owner or resident $250 for the first hour. Funds will go to the city’s general fund.
A copy of the ordinance will be sent out to property owners with water bills. There will also be a notice in the I-O.
A final reading will be at the next council meeting on May 16. The full ordinance may be viewed at city hall during normal working hours. Please call ahead of time to read the ordinance.
