Welcome to the 226th edition of the (almost) award-winning “Caught My Eye!”
If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right 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 Zinke and the Armed Services Committee, the Montana Legislature, Barry Beach & Tim Fox, Great Falls’ unusual ice event, a change of venue, plus we have a winner who is Making Montana Proud!
It’s always enjoyable to watch the local governments in action – this is where the rubber meets the road! I am writing about the city of Great Falls and Cascade County governments in Montana. Great Falls is in Cascade County.
I served a term on the Neighborhood Council several years ago in Great Falls, and it was an enjoyable experience. Right after high school, and before I decided to join the military, I worked as a laborer and heavy equipment operator for a city in the Midwest. So I have seen the operation of the local government from several angles.
Almost every Friday I write about someone or some group that is Making Montana Proud. These people embarrass Montana in some way. I have also written extensively about drunk driving over the years.
Here’s an update on two people who made my Making Montana Proud list!
