Judy Magruder of Brady to be honored
The 20th day of August was a special day because it marked the 40th anniversary of Special Olympics under the Big Sky.
To celebrate the occasion, a gala event will take place the evening of Sept. 25 at the Mansfield Convention Center in Great Falls in which 40 key influencers – individuals, organizations and businesses from all across Montana – will be honored.
Judy Magruder who moved to Brady about two years ago will be one of the 40. She and her husband Tom had lived in Monarch.

It’s time to think about flu shots.
Though flu season most often occurs in January or February, flu can occur anytime and outbreaks often occur in the fall of the year. Your flu shot can last for about a year so now is the right time to be vaccinated.
Locally, the Pondera County Health Department (PCHD) and Pondera Medical Center (PMC) have both received supplies of adult vaccine. Both agencies anticipate pediatric supplies to arrive in September.
