Team scores and places looked like: 1. Conrad 333, 2. Choteau 345, 3. Fairfield 369, 4. Cut Bank 385, 5. Shelby 448.
DIRECT HIT! — Just follow the tracks. A vehicle left I-15 North and zeroed in on the Valier exit sign taking it out. There were no skid marks or signs of braking. The PCSO has no information on who hit the sign. It may have happened during the recent snow storm. Maybe this person needs to take a refresher course from Jim Carroll. I-O Photo by Buck Traxler

Students will be required to attend all classroom sessions. It is anticipated there will be two separate sessions daily. Students will be scheduled into one of the two classroom sessions after student sign-ups are completed in April. Driving will be scheduled throughout June, July, and if necessary, August.
