Caught My Eye…

You’ve made it to Friday – and we’re halfway through January – so congratulations!

Now buckle your seatbelt for “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 drunk driving in Montana, another Hail Mary from Tester & Daines, Republicans/Democrats retreat, a trained assassin, plus there’s a winner who is Making Montana Proud!
