Members of the Growth Policy Committees (GPC) and a consultant will be available in Conrad, Dupuyer and Brady during the week of Jan. 24 to provide information, answer questions and listen to residents.

The 2011 MAGIE (Montana Agricultural and Industrial Exhibit) is scheduled Jan. 20-22, in Great Falls at the 4 Seasons Arena on the State Fairgrounds.
MAGIE is Montana’s largest farm and ranch trade show, with over 200 exhibitors scheduled to attend. You’ll see the latest in farming technology: including irrigation technology, guidance systems, implements, business management, livestock handling equipment and wind power just to name a few.
MAGIE is also hosting several workshops, which will all be held in the Paddock building on the State Fairgrounds. Jim Sargent of KMON tells the I-O, “Thursday will feature three tremendous speakers beginning with 2010 National FFA officer candidate, Karrisa Floerchinger, who will be discussing the National FFA convention.”

The regular season is half over and mat-fans finally got a chance to see the home boys in action without going on the road.
A number of area teams were in town on Thursday for a mixer in preparation for the Choteau Classic that was held on Friday and Saturday. There were two mats of non-stop performances.
At times Cowboys were on both mats at the same time, so a lot of head turning was going on in the stands.
Of the 28 matches the Cowboys were in, 20 were won by the home boys.
There were a lot of pin wins and many of those came with pretty quick times.
