Terrific News Tuesday

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. – Arthur Ashe

Welcome to another edition of Terrific News Tuesday (TNT)!

In case this is your first time reading 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 in this column today – just writing about some terrific news that caught my attention!

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

  • Montana Constitution
  • Vets for Vets Stand Down
  • Steve Daines’ Offices
  • The Hug

Montana Constitution:

Great Falls Tribune reporter Rich Ecke recently wrote about four people from Great Falls who helped write the 1972 Montana Constitution.

Ecke interviewed the three surviving members from Great Falls: Don Rebal, Bob Woodmansey, and Arlyne Reichert. It was a fascinating time in Montana’s history and it was great to read about some of the inside stuff that occurred. You can read the whole story HERE.

Vets for Vets Stand Down:

The 10th annual Vets for Vets Stand Down is scheduled for this Thursday and Friday in Great Falls at Montana ExpoPark’s Mercantile Building.

This is a great event for veterans. They need volunteers to help set up and clean up for the event. More info can be found HERE.

Steve Daines’ Offices:

A round of applause goes to U.S. Senator Steve Daines for opening a senate field office in Hardin, Montana.

I don’t know exactly when it was opened as I found it on his website when doing some research.

Senators have the option of where to have their field offices (and how many) and it’s good to see Daines place offices in small towns like Hardin. Previously he opened a field office in Sidney. You can see where all of Daines’ offices are located and their addresses and phone numbers by clicking HERE.

The Hug:

First lady Michelle Obama embraced former President George W. Bush at the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington on Saturday, and the image quickly went viral. (CBS News)

That was nice to see – especially in this political season.
