The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions. – Chanakya
Hey kids…it’s time for 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. I know it’s hard to believe, but I won’t be complaining or criticizing anyone or anything today – just writing about some terrific news that caught my attention!
Here is some of the good stuff in this edition of TNT:
- Big Sandy, Montana
- State of the Union
- College Football National Championship
- Super Bowl I
- Playboy Mansion
Big Sandy, Montana:
It’s always good to see a community come together to help a neighbor. That happens in Montana a lot, and that’s what happened to Russel Darlington of Big Sandy.
Darlington developed health problems and needed to sell his cattle. Ranchers from around Big Sandy came together to purchase his cattle – for a very good price.

State of the Union:
The good news is that tonight is the State of the Union (SOTU) address by the President. Whether you lean to the right, to the left, or down the middle, you should watch the SOTU.
I encourage you to watch it on C-SPAN. Tune in early and people watch. More information can be found HERE.
One person to watch for when the President enters the House chambers is Montana’s U.S. Senator, Jon Tester. According to his press office, Tester was once again selected by his peers to be on the escort committee. That’s pretty cool.
College Football National Championship:
ESPN gets some serious high-fives for having 14 ways to watch the College Football National Championship game between Alabama and Clemson last night.
Yes, there were 14 ways to watch the big game that was won by Alabama.
I think the two most interesting channels were the pylon camera channel and the spider camera channel which is above the field of play.
Check out the other options that were available HERE.
Super Bowl I:
This is pretty cool. Forty-nine years to the day after the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs squared off in Super Bowl I, NFL Network will be the first network to ever replay this historic game on television. (Source)
The good news is that you can buy the Playboy mansion – it’s for sale for $200 million.
There are strings attached to the purchase. TMZ reports that that whoever buys it will be required to give Hugh Hefner a life estate, meaning he can continue to live in the mansion until he dies.
Hefner is 89 years old.
