Spray of The Falls

Rich Ecke (yay!) is back with another “Spray of The Falls” column in the Trib. Usually entertaining column, such as this one’s focus on brushes with Oscar greatness (such as), although some slightly more serious stuff this time around: the return of both himself and KRTV weatherman Fred Pfeiffer following surgery (one for an appendix, one for prostate cx); both recovering nicely, thankfully. There’s also a mini-tribute to Robert Speck, who was a key figure…

For anyone who might be moving to Great Falls, one way to gauge the size and “type” of the community is to compare it to your own. So here’s a tally of some of our “chain” restaurants to give you an idea of what you’ll be getting into. Bear in mind that this is only the chain-style places; we have plenty of local and regional (McKenzie River, anyone?) restaurants that – believe me – are…
