Terrific News Tuesday

You can always tell when a man’s well informed. His views are pretty much like your own. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

It’s back – another edition of 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:

  • Brock Osweiler
  • Gas Prices
  • Badger Two-Medicine
  • Texting
  • Homeless Choir

Brock Osweiler:

I am not a Denver Broncos fan (Go Chiefs), but I am happy that Kalispell native Brock Osweiler’s first start with the Broncos was a good one, (20-27 for 250 yards, 2 TDs, and No INT). He threw a touchdown pass on his first drive – so you can’t really ask for a better start!

Next Sunday night, the lights grow a little brighter for Osweiler as the undefeated New England Patriots come to Denver for a Sunday Night Football matchup. Denver coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday that Osweiler would start against the Patriots.

Gas Prices:

The good news is that this time last year gas prices were about 70 cents more per gallon. Some folks are predicting that gas prices might be dropping even further, which would be welcome news. One report from USA Today says gas prices in some locations will drop below $2 per gallon in time for Thanksgiving.

The price per a gallon of gas Tuesday morning was about $2.19 – $2.25 in Great Falls (MT) according to MontanaGasPrices.com. One year ago, the price was $2.92.

Badger Two-Medicine:

It was good to hear that the U.S. Department of Interior plans to cancel an oil and gas drilling lease in the Badger Two-Medicine area near Glacier National Park and the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. (Source)

There are many other places to drill for oil and gas in this country. This area is just too important and sacred to be drilled.


A mother sent a text message to her dead son to cope with grief. She received a text back and it’s a wonderful story that will show you there are still some good-hearted people in this world! Read about it HERE.

Homeless Choir:

This was another heart-warming story that I wanted to share – President and Mrs. Obama have invited the Homeward Choir, which is entirely made up of men who stay at the Central Night Shelter in Atlanta, Georgia, to perform at the White House on December 21.

Southwest Airlines will fly all 26 members to the White House. Read more HERE.
