It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. – Harry S Truman
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:
- Great Falls Bond Levy
- Malmstrom AFB Choir
- Michigan K9
- Mall of America
- Classical Trumpet Players
Great Falls Bond Levy:
It was great to see the two bond levies pass in Great Falls last Tuesday – and they passed with much support. The levies total $98.8 million.(GF Tribune)
There will be a lot of improvements over the next few years, including two new elementary schools. This is something that will help Great Falls and the community for years to come.
Malmstrom AFB Choir:
It was nice to hear that Malmstrom Air Force Base now has a base choir. They have been together for less than a year, and they have been singing the National Anthem as well as performing at other events. (MTN)
I always enjoyed singing in a choir.
A Michigan Sheriff K9 named “Cash” is getting some much-needed recognition after rescuing a toddler with autism on Thursday. The 4-year-old boy was lost in the woods in Victory Township. Mason County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the child’s family home around 4:00p.m., and soon found the boy about ¾ of a mile from his home. (Fox News)
They should give “Cash” a steak!
Mall of America:
The largest shopping mall in the United States announced it will close on Thanksgiving. Employees of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota received notifications Wednesday morning that the mall, including its indoor amusement park and movie theaters, will close on Thanksgiving Day. (USA Today)
The head start on Christmas shopping seems to have gotten out of hand recently with stores opening on Thanksgiving. Hopefully, other stores will close on Thanksgiving.
Applause to the Mall of America for taking this stand.
Classical Trumpet Players:
This is a nice story from a recent CBS News’ “On the Road” segment.
For more than a year, David Bilger has been mentoring 17-year-old Baset Azizi. Baset lives 7,000 miles away in Kabul, Afghanistan. They worked together over the Internet until eventually Baset got accepted into the prestigious Interlochen Center for the Arts high school near Traverse City, Michigan.
