Terrific News Tuesday

I hope you received your fill of football and food over the weekend! The good news is that it all starts again Thursday night!

In case this is your first time reading Terrific News Tuesday (TNT), this column is all about good news – there’s no complaining or criticizing today – just some terrific news that caught my attention!

Here is some of the good stuff in this edition of TNT:

  • Municipal Primary Election
  • National Register of Historic Places
  • Umbrella Dad
  • The Dove Channel
  • New Shingles Vaccine

Municipal Primary Election:

It’s always great to be able to vote in an election. Today (Sept. 15) is the day for the Municipal Primary Elections (if necessary) across Montana. So don’t forget to vote if there’s a primary in your town!

A big thanks to those who are running for office – we appreciate your willingness to serve!

National Register of Historic Places:

It was great to read that the Montana Historical Society and the state Department of Administration are filing an application that seeks to have the Montana Capitol complex listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Source)

We need to protect our historic treasures in this country!

Umbrella Dad:

The photo of the dad getting soaked in the rain while he holds an umbrella over his son should make everyone feel good! See it HERE.

One person commented that the dad was showing the boy how to put others before himself. I don’t know about that, but maybe the dad just wanted his son to stay dry on the way to school…

The Dove Channel:

The good news is the Dove Channel starts a new streaming subscription service today (Tuesday) through the website DoveChannel.com. They will be showing family-friendly shows. (Source)

We can never have too many family-friendly shows!

New Shingles Vaccine:

I’ve known some folks who had shingles and they tell me that shingles are terrible. The good news is that GlaxoSmithKline is testing a new vaccine for shingles that may be 97% effective! The vaccine may be on the market within the next two years.
