Veterans can receive healthcare from Department of Veterans Affairs professionals as a new VA-staffed clinic opens in Cut Bank Dec. 10.
A dedication ceremony for the community based outpatient clinic begins at 9 a.m. at the HC Davis Elementary School gymnasium. Margaret Plain Eagle and Elsie Crowshoe, spiritual elders of the Blackfeet, will perform a Native American blessing for the ceremony. An open house will follow at the clinic, located at #8 Second Ave. South East.
The clinic was established in 2008 with services provided by and contracted with Glacier Community Health Clinic and is one of 15 VA healthcare sites in Montana.
MYSTIC VIEW — An early morning fog settled in and gave us this mysterious look at the Busch Ag Resources towers just outside of town. Fog can be considered a cloud at ground level. Like clouds, fog is made up of condensed water droplets which are the result of air being cooled to the point where it can no longer hold all the water vapor it contains. I-O Photo by Buck Traxler

On a recommendation of the Blue Sky Villa (BSV) lease committee, the city council moved to increase the rent for BSV from $41,000 to $47,000 a year.
Readers will recall that Conrad acquired BSV from the USAF about 17 years ago and then leased the property to Horizon Lodge.
Over that period of time there have been only two rent increases.
The city had a light agenda, there being no building or zoning permits, water contracts or public comments.
More than 170 rural Pondera County landowners have completed and mailed in their Growth Policy surveys.
In mid-November, the County’s Growth Policy Committee sent the survey to a random sample of about 560 rural landowners to learn about their views on issues in Pondera County.
As of Nov. 29, 30 percent of the survey recipients have completed and returned their survey.
The Growth Policy Committee set a goal of receiving back 50 percent or 280 surveys. Achieving this would mean that the survey results will be a statistically accurate reflection of the entire county.
