School Christmas/Holiday Programs:

If you need a little push to get into the holiday spirit, the good news is there are hundreds if not thousands of private and public school Christmas/Holiday programs going on this week and next week across the United States.

Here in Great Falls (MT) our music departments are second to none. Go check out a school Christmas/Holiday program – you’ll feel better for it and the kids will appreciate your attendance.

Military Academy Nominations:

Congratulations to all the young men and women who have been nominated to attend America’s military service academies. See the nominees from U.S. Representative Ryan Zinke HERE and U.S. Senator Steve Daines HERE.

I salute these hard-working students for their commitment to our country.

MSU-Billings Poll:

The good news is that the Montana State University Billings has released their poll. According to MSU-B, the “MSU-Billings Poll” was first conducted in 1989. This is the 27th year the survey has been conducted and during this time 29 surveys have been completed. This report summarizes the results of a statewide random sample telephone survey of 435 adult Montanans.

The poll contains results about approval ratings of statewide elected officials, the President and Congress, gun laws, marijuana legalization, the Affordable Care Act, and much more!

Read the poll HERE.

College Football Bowl Season:

The 2015-16 College Football Bowl season schedule is out! It all starts on December 19 and ends January 11 with the National Championship in Glendale, Arizona.

It looks like there are about 40 games. Wowser…

You can view the schedule HERE.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show:

Just in case you are looking for the latest fashion, the good news is the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight on CBS. Check out the website HERE.

Is this a great country or what?

  2. I don’t attach too much weight to the MSU-Blgs poll. It’s more of an annual class project in stats. It’s like driving across West Dakota and seeing (pick an animal) in the far off distance. You pull over and look around and it’s the only animal you see. I shrug and move on.

    • Doug – I agree. When I worked in the political world, if your candidate/elected official looked good from the MSU-B poll, then you loved it and talked about it and tried to raise some money off of it. If the candidate/elected official looked bad, you did not mention it too much except to say it was not a good method of polling or a small sample size and hoped the 24-hour news cycle would hurry up and end.
