Welcome to Terrific News Tuesday!
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:
- Great Falls High School Student
- Law Enforcement Torch Run
- FCC Chairman visits Montana
- Democratic Presidential Debate
Great Falls High School:
It was great to hear about the courageous Great Falls High School student who reported an alleged threat of a school shooting from a fellow student to the police. See the story HERE.
That was a tough thing to do, but she may have saved lives by telling her father about the alleged threat. Her father took her to the police department to report it.
Law Enforcement Torch Run:

Special Olympics is a wonderful program and the Law Enforcement Torch Run works to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Montana and its athletes.
FCC Chairman in Montana:
It’s good to see that U.S. Senator Jon Tester is bringing Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler to the Great Falls area for a series of #ConnectMT events.
The events are scheduled for today (Tuesday, October 13). See more information HERE.
Tester and Wheeler will meet with students, business leaders and first responders about the importance of technology and reliable internet access to education, job creation and public safety.
Democratic Presidential Debate:
It’s always good to see candidates for public office debate. Tonight the Democrats who are running for President get their chance to be seen in their first debate. There are five candidates debating. It will be televised on CNN. It begins at 6:30 here in Montana.
The candidates are Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Martin O’Malley, and Lincoln Chafee.
There’s a new movie hitting theaters this week called “Woodlawn.”
According to movie’s website, it is based in a true story about a high school football player who must learn to boldly embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field in early 1970s Birmingham, Ala.
