Drew Lesnik is also up for re-election to a two-year term for Ward I and Rick Moss for Ward 2. Lesnik and Moss are up for two-year terms because they were each appointed to fulfill an unexpired term for alderman that resigned mid-term. Ward 1 consists of Precinct 24 and Ward 2 is Precinct 27.

Friday, Sherry Cullen on behalf of the Montana Elks Association presented the Pondera Medical Center with a check in the amount of $2,002.50.
The money donated is to be used to purchase a state-of-the-art video laryngoscope. This piece of equipment is mainly for use in the PMC Emergency Room.
The video laryngoscope will allow for easier placement of an airway intubation tubes. With the advanced technology of video assistance critical patients will be intubated quicker than ever before meaning the patient will receive life saving oxygen faster resulting in better patient outcomes.
Tiffany Nitz, PMC interim CEO commented that without the support of statewide organizations like the Montana Elks Foundation, Critical Access Hospitals simply would not be able to keep their doors open.

Columbus, Glasgow, Shelby, Cut Bank and Shepherd, the “Beast from the East,” were here and ready for some action on the fields.
Columbus and Conrad faced off on Friday at 1 p.m. and after a scoreless first inning; Columbus erupted for five runs in the second inning. That would be all they needed, but they added two insurance runs in the fifth and moved one to a 7-1 win.
Cowgirl Morgan Fowler and battery mate Hannah Bowers suffered the loss.
