Asking when the Montana Alberta Tie Line (MATL) will begin construction in Pondera County will get you a nebulous answer, at the present.
Material for the project is sitting at a staging site near Shelby. Construction slated earlier this month with phase one being an electrical substation at Cut Bank and moving on north to Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
And while construction has begun, going north, the time table for Pondera County is still uncertain. However, it is estimated the line construction in this segment is scheduled for early 2011.
The MATL line is a 300-megawatt electrical transmission line that will allow movement of power between Alberta and Montana

The Tri-County Cardinals season officially ended at the Northern A District tournament in Fort Macleod. The Cardinals were hoping to repeat as District champions and move on to the next round, but it wasn’t meant to be.
In the first game of the tournament, the Cardinals took on tournament host Fort Macleod.
Tri-County took a big step towards qualifying for State with a 10-2 win.
Cardinal Ace, John Johannsen took the mound and fired six innings of four hits, one run ball for the win. Johannsen also walked six batters and struck out eight. Scott Bye came on in relief and threw three innings to seal the win.
At the plate Joe Hallenburg went 2-3 with two runs and a RBI. Johannsen helped his cause knocking in two runs and scoring one himself.
