Military Retirees & Montana:
The good news is that Montana is ranked the second best state for military retirees by WalletHub, a personal finance website. WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across three key dimensions: 1) Economic Environment, 2) Quality of Life and 3) Health Care.

Special U.S. House Election:
The good news is that here in Montana the endless campaign commercials and phone calls will soon be coming to an end. The special U.S. House election is this Thursday. One other piece of good news is that Montana will once again have a representative in the U.S. House.

Thanks to all those professionals who are there for us in our time of need.
Quality Life Concepts Desperados:
The Great Falls Tribune’s Scott Mansch has written a great story about Quality Life Concepts (QLC) which is the largest Montana-based provider of developmental disability services. QLC serves children and adults with special needs.
The QLC staff and their clients together have fielded a co-ed softball team this year called the Desperados. Check out the inspiring story about the Desperados HERE.
On the Road:
This story recently aired on the CBS Evening News segment, On the Road with Steve Hartman…
Ginger Sprouse used to yell out of her car window at homeless people and tell them to get a job. She decided she did not like that about herself so about a year ago she decided to change.
So she approached a man she saw often on her way to work. Things soon changed for Ginger Sprouse and for the homeless man named Victor Hubbard.
