  • Dog bites lead to zero-tolerance policy on loose dogs

    Havre Daily News staff|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    Havre Animal Shelter posted on its Facebook page this morning that, after a child was bitten by dog on the loose in Smithville Wednesday, Havre is taking a zero-tolerance stance for the area due to the number of dogs running at large that are aggressive or vicious. "All dogs must be on a leash or contained on the owners property," the post says. "All dogs must have city registration tags along with a rabies tag." The post says that the owner or caretaker of all dogs found at...

    Derek Hann|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    For three generations, the Flynn family has worked hard to keep both their real estate business and their family farm going, Flynn Realty Inc. owner Janis Flynn Pyrak said. "We're the real deal," she said. "We have always been here and we probably always will be as long as we can keep it going." In 1953, Kenneth Flynn - Pyrak's father - started Flynn Realty, first established in the Havre Hotel located on First Street before it burned down. Pyrak said Flynn Realty was in...

    Rachel Jamieson|Updated Aug 29, 2019

Aaniiih Nakoda College President Carole Falcon-Chandler said everyone is welcome to enroll at the accredited tribal college, named for the two tribes comprising the Fort Belknap Indian Community. “We do things a little different because we are located in our tribal community, but we still have open admission.

  • Letter to the Editor - I'm A Missoula Gun Owner - Keep Background Checks

    Updated Aug 29, 2019

    I wish I could say I was bewildered with Republican “logic” with firearms in objecting a free city in a free state (we are free aren’t we?) to pass background checks to curb the ease of exchange of dangerous weapons within its city limits, but nothing surprises me about this political party anymore. LR-130 is their answer in deciding who has rights and for which part of the Constitution to read, interpret and adhere to. There is a state Republican from Bozeman who must pack heat to feel safe, advocating for this legis...

  • Looking out my Backdoor: Missed my calling

    Sondra Ashton|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    Today I bring you the banal, the mundane, my trite self-discovery in household hints. Soap-pads Ohso Special. Also known as SOS or, in Español, “fibra metalica.” Can you believe I could not find any of those soap-embedded, finely-shredded wirey scrub pads that I think of as SOS pads, no matter the brand? Not anywhere in town. I am a proponent of shopping locally. Though my town is small, I generally find whatever I need in a store right around the corner. Fruterias and abor...

  • Veteran Blue Ponies hoping to stampede their way through 2019

    Chris Peterson|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    The past two seasons haven't gone exactly as planned for the Havre High football team, but after taking some incremental steps forward last season, the Blue Ponies are looking for a big leap in 2019 - big enough to get the team back into the playoffs for the first since 2015. But in order to end that drought, the Ponies will need to win at least two or maybe three more games, following a 2-7 campaign a season ago. "We feel really good." HHS head coach Ryan Gatch said. "Our...

  • Powerful Pony volleyball team is ready to spike

    Chris Peterson|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    The Havre High volleyball team has shown steady improvement over the past couple of seasons, but in 2019, with some key players returning, the Blue Ponies have an opportunity to make an extended postseason run. HHS put together a solid campaign last season, going 12-8 in the regular season. The team looked poised for a run to state but fell short at the Eastern A Divisional. Now, even though the state tournament may be a few months away, it seems like an attainable goal for a...


    George Ferguson|Updated Aug 29, 2019

    To say the last three or four years have been rough inside, and around, the Montana State University-Northern football program would be putting it mildly. Bright spots, like a 2017 win over Carroll College, or last year's season-opening blowout of Mayville State, have been few and far between. So, it was stand to reason, given just how few games the Lights have won since 2014, that, there would be negativity and despair, in other words, a black cloud hanging over the entire...
