If you were a political junkie or just wanted to be informed, the Pondera Golf Course was the place to be on Wednesday.
More than 60 people and local and state candidates showed up for a political forum.
The event was sponsored by the Front Range Counties Farm Bureau, a four-county, (Pondera, Toole, Teton and Glacier) non-partisan, Ag Producer organization.

The now bi-monthly Chamber of Commerce luncheon was recently held, for the first time, at the Farmer’s Daughter with a slightly larger than normal crowd in attendance. It was speculated that this was because the luncheons are now bi-monthly, making them easier to attend, and also that employers were asked to be present for an unofficial awards ceremony.
Brett Peters, Will Early, and Kalyea Killion with the Business Professionals of America (BPA) group from Conrad High School (CHS) were on hand to present certificates to businesses who have hired high school students. Nearly half of CHS’s student body is employed part-time. As an extra gesture of appreciation, the lunches of those honored were paid for by BPA.
Corrine Rose, County Sanitarian, Mary Ann Ries, County Attorney, and Rita Christiaens from Dupuyer, met with the commissioners on Wednesday to discuss the possibility of creating a nuisance ordinance.
The reason to create a new ordinance is the burned out former bar and restaurant in Dupuyer in which town members want it cleaned up so a new business can go in.
