Pondera County Commissioner Sandy Broesder told the I-O on Monday that the county was the recipient of a block grant.
The Montana Department of Environment Quality (DEQ) had selected a grant application, authored by Broesder, to receive funding in the amount of $200,000 under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program.
Broesder said that the grant paperwork had been submitted in late January. The energy grant will be used for new windows, heating and cooling units and insulation at the new Senior Community Center on Virginia St.
Stockman Bank will be presenting to the Conrad High School seniors on April 29, to educate them on basic credit and business etiquette as part of National Teach Children to Save Month.
Stockman Bank presenters will be Vanessa Bucklin, Renae Bouma and Joan Jensen and they will be teaching from 1-3 p.m.

Editor’s note: A similar profile ran last week in the Valierian. Her profile was used from one developed by the I-O over the years and without attribution.
Candidate profiles are run on a first-come-first served basis. Her profile was done three weeks ago, but is now being run. While it may look like it came out of the Valierian, it didn’t and they should have acknowledged this.
Athena Mosxona (Pronounced Moss-Ko-Na, X is like a K) has always set her goals high.
And when approached to run for political office in the state house, she wasn’t fazed one bit.
Mosxona, a first time legislative candidate, is running on the Democratic ticket. She is, however, not new to running a political race having served two terms on the school board in Heart Butte.
