CMR Grad is Miss Montana 2008

We have a new Miss Montana: Jennifer Hepner, a graduate of CMR high school and now a student at UM in Missoula, was crowned Saturday night! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Miss Hepner; she’s a good kid. She’s an Air Force brat (hooray!) and worked summers at the Malmstrom clinic several years ago. She’s also a pageant pro: she represented Great Falls at the 2007 pageant and the 2006 pageant. Congrats on winning the title, Jennifer – you’ll represent Montana (and Great Falls!) well! More Miss Montana: Miss Montana 2007; Miss Montana 2006; and Miss Montana 2005.

Great Falls Scanner offers up some humorous tips for dealing with “tailgaters.” Newly-promoted Shannon attended the Obama rally with some friends, and received some VIP treatment. Why? She offers one possible reason. And while Todd and Kelly celebrate the graduation of one son, they...
