Commission chairman Sandy Broesder informed the commissioners that the City of Conrad, Town of Valier and county growth planning committee had solicited requests for proposals for an independent contractor to prepare the combined Growth Plan for the County, including two incorporated municipalities.
The recommendation of the committee, presented to the commissioners by Cheryl Curry of the Pondera Regional Port Authority, was to approve the contract with Cossitt.

My sister died recently. She went to see her doctor not feeling well on a Thursday and died the following Thursday. They said it was acute leukemia. She was 58. Sudden death is always a shock to any family and ours isn’t any different. As we sort it all out, I am thankful she was a Believer and is in Heaven as I pen these words.
As I reflect on recent events and think about whether I would rather be here or in Heaven then Heaven is my obvious choice. My sister isn’t going to be faced with the problems socialism is bringing to our country. She isn’t going to have to deal with a Congress run by greed and corruption. She won’t have to deal with all the fall out this is causing us. She won’t be around to see us decline as a Super Power.
For those of us still here we must become activists and get involved. No longer can we stand on the sidelines of life and expect someone else to take care of it for us. A recent news report stated that most Americans were willing to give up their rights if they knew they were protected.
I say protected from what? My concern is who is going to protect me from the Government? The constitution was written for just that reason.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary #7655 are participating in a National Veterans History Project to collect and preserve the remembrances of American war veterans and the civilian workers who supported them.
This collection of first-hand accounts will be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress for use by researchers and to serve as an inspiration for generations to come.
The project collects remembrances of veterans who served in WWI, WWII, the Cold War, Korean conflict, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, (1900-95), and the Iraq-Afghanistan conflicts (2001-present).
