Laurel — Big Sandy’s Six-Man Football team plays in the state finals Saturday in Hot Springs. The Hi-Line has heated rivalries during the football season. But one thing is sure. Everyone from Malta to Chester is cheering for the Pioneers. Lots of people had to Google to find out where Hot Springs was, but there will be a parade of cars from the Hi-Line to the western Montana town. By the end of the weekend, we hope, Big Sandy will be known as the home of Sen. Jon Tester, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament and the Montana championship Six-Man Football team.
Laurel — Havre High School will combine education and entertainment at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday when students perform “I Never Saw Another Butterfly,” a look at the Holocaust-era during World War II. The play will provide a valuable lesson to students and adults attending the performances about a time in Western history that most of us would like to forget — but never should.
Laurel — Everybody Loves Firefighters — ELF — is an annual drive conducted by Havre firefighters to collect food for the Havre Food Bank. It is one of the biggest food drives in the area. It was good to see students involved in the project this year. Thanks, firefighters and students, for putting all this work into the project that is so needed in our community.
Laurel —Speaking of the food bank, A Chair At the Table benefit auction will be held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. today at the Atrium Mall. Decorated chairs will be auctioned off for the food bank. It will be one of many benefits for the food bank this season. If the past is any indication, the Havre community will pour forth lots of contributions to help the food bank stretch its resources to provide what the needy of the community need.
Laurel — DUI Court is one step closer to getting under way in Hill County. The program offers opportunities to those convicted of drunken driving — alternatives to jail time. That means alcohol-addicted drivers get a better chance at rehabilitation, and it means that jails will not be filled to the brim with drunken drivers.
