Rain put the kibosh on last week’s Tennis matches halting Tuesday’s dual against Cut Bank and canceling the two-day ‘AA’ Dual in Great Falls.
Against Cut Bank on Tuesday Calen King fell to Jace Kimmet 3-8 and Austin Zomer lost to Dylan Johnston 0-8.
In doubles Luke Schlosser and Colter Knox defeated Nate Kavanagh and Chaz Cooper in a tough tiebreak match 8-7 (7-3).
On the Girls side Alyssa Keil lost to Morgan McDivitt 0-8. The doubles team of Bethany Grubb and Emily Weisgram were defeated by Alexa Cline and Brianna Bauer 4-8.
It’s time that a group of people finally got together to implement common sense use on the forest land of Montana. To close multiple use of the forest takes away what makes Montana appealing to me, and, I believe, most others.
You can snowmobile, horse- back, ATV, backpack, cross-country ski and a host of other things.
There are millions of acres of wilderness, plus millions of acres of road-less and non-motorized use which is awesome. Want solitude and no chance of seeing a person on an ATV? It’s there. I want the Rocky Mountain Front kept like it was, for my children, like it was for Mom and Dad. That is the common cry. But what you don’t hear is the last best place on earth had logging roads, access roads, seismograph trails, wagon trails, and yes, roads built to drill for oil. Four wheelers did not put the road into the Badger/Two Medicine. Bulldozers did, to build an airstrip.

If you have read or watched any news over the past couple of years, you couldn’t have missed that many banks have taken a tumble.
Go back a few years to 2007 and there were just three failed banks that year. The following year that number climbed to 25 and the handwriting was on the wall.
With the collapse of the housing market and the increase of mortgage delinquencies and home foreclosures, not to mention a credit card crisis banks began to close their doors at an alarming rate.
In 2009, the number of banks closing exploded upward to 140 and already this year, 42 banks have failed bringing the total number up to 210.
The total assets of the failed banks are $570+ billion and loss to FDIC’s is $58+ billion, numbers that are just too big to comprehend.
