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:
- Malmstrom’s Humvee
- World Robotics Champions
- Blackfeet Language Lessons
- April the Giraffe
- 2017 NFL Draft
The long (and embarrassing) nightmare is over! A Humvee belonging to Malmstrom AFB was finally rescued after being stuck in the mud for several days near Grass Range, Montana.
The Humvee was rescued by an Army CH-47 Chinook helicopter. See the photo and read the story about the rescue in the Billings Gazette HERE.
World Robotics Champions:
Congratulations to the members of the Sun River Rednek Robotics team who came home as heroes on Sunday. The team returned from placing in the top bracket out of 128 teams at an international robotics competition in Houston earlier this week. (KRTV)
They also took first place in 2015.
Blackfeet Language Lessons:
Great Falls College MSU is offering Blackfeet language lessons to anyone who is interested. The lessons are free and open to the public.
The language lessons are held Tuesdays at 6 p.m. in the college’s Native American Enrichment Center inside the college, located at 2100 16th Ave. S. The lessons are taught by Native American studies instructor Don Fish. (GFC-MSU)
April the Giraffe:
The good news is that the “giraffe cam” that showed April the giraffe give birth will soon be back so viewers can watch the baby grow!
According to the Animal Adventure Park Facebook page:
The Giraffe Cam is not gone forever! This week we will announce viewing day/times for you to check in and watch progress! This schedule will continue until noted differently.
A permanent yard cam will go up this season which will also reconnect you to your favorite giraffe family.
2017 NFL Draft:
There are going to be a few more millionaires later this week because the 2017 NFL Draft takes place April 27-29. (NFL.com)
It also means we are getting closer to the NFL season!
The Cleveland Browns have the first pick…
