News – Casual Style

Caught a few minutes of the KFBB and KRTV news at 5:30 this evening, and was impressed by how casual and relaxed the anchors and reporters seemed to be as they broadcast live from the State Fair. They seemed downright comfortable, with very little of the studio-induced fake banter. Much more engaging. So here’s an open question to Julie Klesh and her fellow newsies: how about doing news broadcasts like that from other spots around the city on a regular basis? I suspect that the community would respond quite well. Anyone else have thoughts about it…?

UPDATE: here is the KFBB news booth that is being discussed in the comments.

Mills Family Update

Becky Welsh, a relative of Tim Mills, pointed out an update to the obituary:

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to a scholarship fund for his children, Krystal, Haley and Logan Mills at Teachers Federal Credit Union, c/o Holly Wick, 1500 River Drive N., Great Falls, MT 59401.

I know that Dolly, the kids, and the entire family will appreciate any donations.

Hot Hot Hot

It’s official: Great Falls hit the 100-degree mark on Friday – the first time this year (and I hope the last!). The linked article also talks about local bat deaths, by the way. And yes, it definitely IS better than 100-degrees in lots of other places, because it is a “dry heat” — believe me, after living in South Texas and Florida for many years, I can tell you unequivocally that 100-degrees in Montana is MUCH better than 100-degrees in humid places. Here, it is at least tolerable.

For Sale

Don’t forget that there’s a free Classified Ads section here at! The van that was listed two weeks ago has now been sold, but there’s other stuff for sale – go take a look. And if you’ve got something to sell – or are looking to buy something – go ahead and register (it’s free!), post your ad (include a picture!), and I’ll post an announcement here on the front page. UPDATE: cool – someone is selling a 1998 Ford F-150 4×4 Extended Cab!
