TOO MUCH WATER — After the recent rain storm, water had to be pumped away from the American Legion ball fields. Weekend contests with Bozeman and Medicine Hat were canceled still because the field was too wet to play on. The team was back in action on Tuesday, playing in Great Falls against the Stallions and Wednesday with the Sparkies. The Cards are back home on June 30 when the Sparkies come to town for a double header. I-O Photo by Buck Traxler

Council members had a limited discussion on the medical marijuana issue at the Monday meeting.
Mayor John Shevlin told council members, “You need to look at your options. It’s your job.” He went on to add, “We need to do something, we’re getting deluged with phone calls.”
Police Chief Gary Dent commented, “People are coming into the state because it’s wide open. State agencies didn’t think they would be deluged like they are.”
There are six known medical marijuana providers doing business within the city limits. None of them have a business license.
