Welcome to 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 Rescue Mission
- Homeless Shelters & Wild Game
- University of Great Falls
- On The Road
- Hello 40s
Great Falls Rescue Mission:
The Great Falls Rescue Mission’s Cameron Family Center’s first residents moved in Monday. (KRTV) The center will provide shelter for homeless families with children.
Congrats to all those involved for providing this wonderful service.
Homeless Shelters & Wild Game:
A bill in the Montana Legislature will allow homeless shelters to allow nonprofit kitchens to serve wild game donations. The bill is HB 166 and the sponsor is Rep. Jeremy Trebas of Great Falls. (GF Tribune)
This is a great idea – hopefully it will pass.
University of Great Falls:
Dr. Anthony Aretz is the president of the University of Great Falls and he recently did an interview with Scott Mansch of the Great Falls Tribune about the sports programs at the University. Aretz talked about football and told Mansch, “Football’s the top sport. I know. I can’t guarantee it, but I’d be surprised if at some time in the next five or so years we don’t start a football program.” (GF Tribune)
Football would be a great addition to UGF and Great Falls.
On The Road:
Jorge Alves is the equipment manager for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He once dreamed of playing goalie in the NHL but was never good enough.
But last month just a few hours before a game, Carolina’s backup goalie got sick. You can watch/read the rest of the story HERE.
The good news is the temperature in Great Falls (MT) is supposed to be in the 40s for the next few days – possibly up to 50! It has not been above 32 for what seems like several weeks.
