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:

Welcome to the big show! This, dear friends, is the 275th Caught My Eye!
If you are a first-time visitor, Caught My Eye is posted every Friday. This column is where 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 – maybe both. Everything is fair game because I’m independent.
Today I write about VA claims pilot program, Daines & Paris & Syria & Fundraising, the Paranoia Vote, Greg the Explorer, Great Falls International Airport, and much more!

Welcome to Wednesday! When there are several stories out there that I want to comment about, I combine them into an “Odds & Ends” or “potpourri” column. Today is one of those days!
By the way, with the election season heating up you really need to follow The Western Word on Twitter and like The Western Word’s Facebook page! You can even subscribe to this blog (see the box on the right).
