Terrific News Tuesday

Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that. – Norman Vincent Peale

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:

  • Anita and Jason
  • High School Graduation Rate
  • Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
  • Last Presidential Debate
  • Lee Newspapers Polls
  • Register to Vote

Anita and Jason:

Anita Hughes just wanted directions on how to get to Cleveland. Jason Wright was going the opposite direction but was kind enough to help her. The rest of the heartwarming story can be found in the “On the Road” segment from CBS News.

You never know when/where you might find a friend.

High School Graduation Rate:

The nation’s high school graduation rate has reached a record 83.2 percent, continuing a steady increase that shows improvement across all racial and ethnic groups, according to federal data released Monday. (AP)

Good job – let’s keep improving!

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

You can vote for the 2017 nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame HERE. Performers like Journey, The Cars, Pearl Jam, Steppenwolf, and several others made the list.

REO Speedwagon should be in the Hall of Fame.

Last Presidential Debate:

The last presidential debate will be held Wednesday night in Las Vegas. This is our final chance to see the candidates answer questions and tell us why they should be the leader of our country.

Lee Newspapers Polls:

Thanks to Lee Newspapers for commissioning several political polls this election season. It’s nice to see a snapshot of how Montanans feel about the candidates. So far they have asked Montanans their preference for President, Governor, U.S. House, and Superintendent of Public Instruction. The Montana Supreme Court Justice #3 race poll will be released tomorrow.

Register to Vote:

It’s wonderful that we have the freedom to vote in this country. In many places, you can still register to vote. Click HERE to find out how to register in Montana. If you live in another state, click HERE.
