Folgers Coffee recently advertised a contest to write and perform an updated version of their Best Part of Waking Up jingle.
University of Montana student Ethan Thompson from Whitefish decided to participate and asked his recently formed band, “Nothing Rhymes with Oranges”, to perform his version.
The band is made up of Ethan as the primary vocalist, Landon Lee from Conrad on bass, Dan Coburn on drums, and Mitch Foster on acoustic guitar (though Mitch was not able to perform with the band on the Folgers video.)
The band plays mostly original jazz/pop style music and has performed at multiple venues in Missoula.
On April 6-7 Youth Enhancement Services, a non-profit corporation dedicated to providing services for youth, in conjunction with Judge Laurie McKinnon of the Ninth Judicial District, are sponsoring a school presentation entitled Choices and Consequences.
The program is designed to assist youth in learning how each decision they make either strengthens or weakens their foundation and character and the message that 10 seconds is all it takes to change a life forever.
The program is being presented to six area high schools – Conrad, Dutton/Brady, Shelby, Choteau, Fairfield and Cut Bank. Valier and Sunburst will be transporting students to area assemblies.

With a large turnout of players the Conrad tennis teams have replaced the loss of veteran seniors from last year. Though we lost five boys and three girls from our varsity squads the upcoming freshman have filled the void on our team.
We are young, but every player on the court is willing to listen and put forth the effort required to make the team competitive during the season. We have a great group of kids out this season and I know they are going to do all they can to improve individually and as a team throughout the season.
The boys team has 16 players with no returning seniors. Junior Calen King looks to improve his 4th place finish in singles at State last year. Johnny Schlosser took 2nd last year in State doubles and looks to find a new partner and vie for the top position again in doubles.
