I’m Eddy D. Erickson and I would like to announce my candidacy on the Republican ticket for Pondera County Sheriff.
I was born in Conrad in 1953 and as a third generation Erickson I was raised on the family farm homestead 10 miles southwest of Conrad.
In 1971, I graduated from Conrad High School and continued my education in Helena at the Helena Vo-tech school, graduating in 1973.
My wife Ruth and I met in 1975, and we were married in Conrad in April of 1976.
If you choose to drink and drive, you should be prepared to pay out a lot of money for your evening of imbibing the spirit of choice.
The Montana Department of Sate Traffic Highway Safety recently developed information about the true costs of being charged with driving under the influence (DUI).
Montana laws state it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with blood or breath alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher.
No proof of impairment is required. A commercial vehicle operator’s threshold is a BAC of 0.04 and the threshold for a person under the age of 21 is a BAC of 0.02.

Funeral service was held Dec. 20 at the First Presbyterian Church in Conrad. Burial with military honors followed in the Hillside Cemetery.
Floyd was born Aug. 2, 1925 in Grand Forks, N.D., to Fred and Selma (Salisbury) Baumann. At the age of two he moved to Conrad and was raised by his Aunt Elizabeth and Uncle George Statham. Floyd was close to his Uncle John and Aunt Norma Baumann. Their children were like his brothers and sisters. Floyd quit high school to join the U.S. Navy during World War II in 1943. He went on to graduate from high school after his honorable discharge in 1946. Floyd worked at a hardware store and cared for Aunt Liz until her death.
