By Rex Koenig My grandfather took the train from Miles City to Missoula in 1950, and my family has been here ever since. Before I left for college I asked him what he learned in his 40 years of talking to juries as a trial lawyer in Western Montana. He said that people here are honest, they don’t like liars and they don’t take B.S. Ryan Zinke looked the leadership of the Navajo and Hopi tribes in the eye and told them that there would be no oil drilling in their ancestral hom
DRUMMOND – It was another opening of another show for the Flint Creek Titans as they rolled over the visiting Park City Panthers 62-6 Saturday afternoon at Drummond High School. Park City ends their year at 3-5 while the Titans improve to a perfect 10-0 and will host the No. 1 Belt Huskies November 5 at George Mungas Field in Philipsburg.

DRUMMOND – It was three and done for Drummond Saturday night as they swept St. Regis in straight sets, 25-9, 25-20, 25-9. The match was a final tune-up for the Lady Trojans as they prepare for they prepare for the District 13C Tournament next week in Missoula. “I was expecting St. Regis to be more competitive and send the ball back over,” said DHS Head Coach Paige Fickler reflecting on the victory, “and I was expecting the balls to be hit from the 10-foot line or the back. I
