The Conrad Cancer Foundation is well underway with its third annual Karaoke for Cancer competition and went through its third week of qualifiers on March 5.
Steve Munk, Barbie Killion and Mitch Hauer were the three judges of the karaoke contenders and they were enlightened by the first two contestants who both earned a few tens.
Up first was Heather Peterson and Killion commented, “You were right on! You obviously did OK cause I gave you a 10.” Peterson must have done a great job, she landed in third place for the night.

Conrad drama students are in rehearsal for the first major production in the new auditorium.
“Everyone is especially excited about performing in this gorgeous facility,” says Beth Ann Bolmeier, who is directing the play.
Chickenheart is a play set in an aging abbey during medieval times.
Lady Emma Chalfont, played by Afton Mielke is pursued by the unscrupulous Sir Cutbert Cleever, played by D. J. Mecham. She takes refuge in the Abbey of the Little Sisters of Saint Meade.
In the absence of Congressional candidates, Denny Rehberg and Steve Daines, the annual Republican Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner at the Pondera Golf Club on Sunday was highlighted by governor candidates Rick Hill, Jim O’Hara and Ken Miller.
All three noted that it was a little unusual for them to be cast in the spotlight at the Party banquets.
