Terrific News Tuesday

It’s time for another edition of Terrific News Tuesday (TNT).

You won’t find any griping or complaining today – just some terrific news that caught my attention!

Here is some of the good stuff that made TNT:

  • Missing in America Project
  • Spring Concerts
  • Policing for Profit
  • 81 Degrees
  • Harriette Thompson
  • Mike Sherman
  • Twitter Record

Missing in America Project:

Thanks to the Missing in America Project, the unclaimed remains of six veterans will be interred with full military honors at the Montana State Veterans Cemetery at Fort Harrison in Helena. Check out the Great Falls Tribune story HERE.

You can read more about the mission of the Missing in America Project HERE.

Spring Concerts:

Thanks to the Great Falls Public Schools, music teachers, and students for their Spring Concerts. With only a few days of school left, many schools are holding concerts – like the Great Falls High “Bison on Broadway” choral concert last night. It was fabulous.

Music is a very important part of a child’s education.

Policing for Profit:

The story of Montana taking more than $16,000 from Lorenzo Ayala that he had saved to buy tractor parts is incredible, but the good news is that “policing for profit” will end in Montana July 1. Beginning July 1, officers must store suspects’ assets until the owner is convicted of a crime involving that property.

It would also be great news is if the state of Montana returned his $16,000.

81 Degrees:

Great Falls (MT) made it all the way to 81 degrees on Sunday which tells me that summer is not too far away – and that is great news!

Harriette Thompson:

She is 92 years old and just finished San Diego’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon – the oldest woman to finish a marathon. Her time was 7 hours, 24 minutes and 36 seconds. Read the story HERE.

Go Harriette…

Mike Sherman:

If the name rings a bell, Sherman is the former head coach of the Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M University plus he was an assistant coach for several college and pro teams.

Now he is taking his talents to high school as head coach at Nauset Regional High School in Eastham, Massachusetts. Read the story HERE.

Good for Sherman and his family…

A New Twitter Record:

According to Time.com, Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) sent out her first tweet yesterday. In the four hours that followed, the former Olympian grabbed 1 million followers, reaching the milestone faster than anyone in history, including previous Guinness record-holder Barack Obama.

As of this morning, Jenner has 1.97 million followers. Her Twitter account is @Caitlyn_Jenner.
