Caught My Eye…

Welcome to the first “Caught My Eye” of March – I can almost see spring from my underground bunker!

NOTICE: Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, so make sure you get up at 2:00 a.m. to set your clocks ahead one hour. For the people in Iowa reading this, that means it will be 3:00 a.m.

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.

Today I write about changes at the Great Falls Tribune & some suggestions, problems with the new guy at the Air Force Global Strike Command, Ryan Zinke and the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Charter Communications, Jeannette Rankin, Lucky for Life, the Selma anniversary, Curt Schilling, and much more!
