The Reveal

I’ll admit — a bit disappointed that the “What’s Shakin’?” billboards turned out to be ads for a new church in Great Falls. Was hoping for a new restaurant or something a bit more exciting. BUT! It was very cool of Bruce (the pastor) and Jeff (the billboard guy) to invite me (exclusively!) to the unveiling of the secret this morning — super nice guys, and they did a great job creating buzz with their…


Remember & Honor

“Attention, all units, all areas: standby for a 10-37 status check. 30,744 north 10-37? 30,744 north 10-37? 30,744 north 10-37? All units, all areas, be advised Cascade County Deputy, 30, Joe Dunn, is 10-7, and has ended his tour of duty. Rest in peace; we will take it from here.

Super-nice and super-smart, devoted family man — Great Falls lost a great guy. He was also…

But on a…


Airborne!

My buddy Mike bought a nifty drone recently and took it for a quick spin around the parking lot at work the other day. Very cool — it’s strangely hypnotic. When it came back to land, all of the guys (including Sheriff Bob, who happened to be visiting the station) stood underneath it to feel the air being pushed by the four blades.


ASSPHRASE!

Looks like the station “bug” in the upper-left corner is deliberately trying to make folks chuckle…
