    Patrick Johnston|Updated Feb 20, 2024

    Montana Supreme Court Chief Justice candidate Cory Swanson, Broadwater County attorney, stopped in Havre earlier this week and sat down for an interview with the Havre Daily News about his candidacy.

Now it is up to Sheehy by himself and he can start by producing a cohesive report outlining who he is, where he grew up, how long he has been in Montana, and how he developed such a vibrant business. As far as the issues are concerned, Sheehy has...

  • The Postscript: A new life for Felix

    Carrie Classon|Updated Feb 20, 2024

    Last night was surprisingly calm, all things considered. I told my husband, Peter, that he should not plan to get a good night’s sleep.

I have had several cats over the years, but my last cat, Lucy, died just a few months before I met Peter, 10 years ago. Peter has had dogs all his life and knows nothing about cats (which means every cat who has ever met him finds him fascinating). So we d...
