HIGHWAY FATALITY IN MALTA (11/29)
(AP) Twenty-two-year-old Duane Thomas Webb of Malta was killed about 7:45 a-m.
when his pickup truck ran off U-S two and crashed into the Malta Tire Company
at the intersection with U-S 191 in Malta.
The patrol says the truck jumped the concrete median, sideswiped a parked truck and crashed into another. The impact threw the pickup into reverse, and the truck crashed backward into a storage building.
The patrol says Webb apparently had fallen asleep at the wheel.

In 1962, Alfred Watkins loaned the gun to the Montana Historical Society so it could be publicly displayed. But a few months ago, Jim Watkins decided to get the gun back, so it could be displayed at the Phillips County Museum in Malta.
But the state says the gun was a permanent gift, and won't give it back. They suggest that Watkins take his case to the meeting of the society's board of trustees, on January 13th in Helena.

FIRE IN GLASGOW EARLY WEDNESDAY (11/24)
The Glasgow Fire Department responded to trailer house fire Wednesday morning at 2:39 am.
According to Glasgow Fire Chief Neil Chouinard a trailer house at #7 Turning Wheel Trailer Court in Glasgow started burning Wednesday morning but the fire was put out by neighbors before the fire department arrived. The Fire Chief said that the probable cause of the fire was an electric weedblower that set a plastic garbage sack on fire which then started the outside wall of the trailer started burning. A resident of the home was awake and noticed the fire. He then woke his wife up and had to go to a neighbor's home to call the fire department because the fire had burned the telephone wire.
The Glasgow Fire Department responded to the fire call with 2 trucks and 17 firefighters. No injuries were reported but one side of the trailer was burned and there was smoke damage.
The Glasgow Fire Department also reminds everyone as the holiday season approaches to test your smoke detector.
FORT PECK LAKE #1 WITH FISHERMEN (11/24)
The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks have listed Fort Peck Reservoir
as the hottest fishing spot in Montana.
According to a recently released report on Montana Statewide Angling Pressure, Fort Peck now ranks number one in the state for the number of anglers who take to its waters. Canyon Ferry Reservoir is ranked number two and the portion of the Bighorn River between Afterbay Dam and the Bighorn Fishing access site is ranked third.
The Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks-for the time period from March 1997 to February 1998 shows that Montana fisherman put in 2.88 million angler days on Montana waters during that time period. That figure is up from 2.5 million in 1995. Fort Peck recorded 108,562 angler days in 1997. That is up from 64,046 in 1994-a 70 percent increase. It is also a 158 percent increase over 1993, when 41,999 fisherman used the lake.
The ranking of Fort Peck as number one in the state marks the first time that a warm-water fishery has been the top lake and the top overall water in Montana. In the past, it was always trout fisheries.
The report also shows that although Fort Peck may now be number one in the state, Montana is still solidly dominated by trout fisherman. About 86 percent of the fishing pressure in the state is aimed at streams, rivers and lakes with trout, while warm water fisheries account for 11.1 percent of the pressure.
Other findings in the survey show that state residents account for 80 percent of fishing pressure in the state and August was the busiest month for anglers with 480,529 angler days, or 16.7 percent of the years total. November was the slowest month for anglers accounting for just 2.6 of the year's total. More than 85,000 surveys were compiled during the year and both resident and non-resident anglers are involved in the random sampling. The first such survey was done in 1957 and it has been compiled every two years since 1989.
HATCHERY STILL MOVING FORWARD (11/24)
The proposed warm water fish hatchery at Fort Peck continues to become closer to a reality as the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks are close to signing an agreement that will have the Corps of Engineers complete a planning study for the hatchery.
The study will cost $250,000, with the Corps of Engineers picking up half of that cost. They are now awaiting an agreement with the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks that will spell out that the plan that formulate will meet the obligations of what the department wants constructed at the hatchery. The other $125,000 that is needed for the study will come from an agreement between Two Rivers Growth Inc. and the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
The department is allowing Two Rivers to borrow money against the expected revenues from the warm water fish stamp to pay for half of the planning study.
According to Chuck Lawson, one of the main organizers of the hatchery project, several private entities have come together to loan the $125,000 for the planning study.
Last week representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks met last Tuesday in Glasgow for preliminary discussions on the plan for the hatchery. As soon as all the agreements are signed, the Corps will begin their planning study, which could take from 6 months to a year to complete. It is hoped though that the study will be finished as soon as soon as possible so the Montana Congressional delegation can begin the appropriation process to find federal money to fund the Fort Peck Warm Water Hatchery.
GAMBLING FIGURES RELEASED (11/24)
The city of Glasgow received $71,700 in revenue from taxes paid on gambling
This tax revenue accounts for over six percent of the city's general fund budget in fiscal year 1999. The money is Glasgow's share of over $25.3 million in gambling machine income taxes distributed to local governments statewide. Glasgow's total for 1999 is $3000 less than 1998's earnings.
Other towns in Valley County receiving gambling tax funds are Nashua $4100; Opheim, $5300; and Fort Peck, $400. Valley County itself received $61,800. Figures released by the Department of Justices' Gambling Control Division show video gambling during the recent fiscal year grew 3.6 percent over 1998. The growth rate is similar to the previous five years, with the exception of a spike in 1998 when revenues grew 8.5 percent. Video gambling operators have paid about $291 million in taxes since 1989, the year the state authorized its current gambling-taxation policy.
Stockman Bank of Montana has reached an agreement with Western Security Bank to acquire six Western Security branch locations. The branches, with assets of $57.0 million, are in Glasgow, Hardin, Malta, Miles City, Plentywood, and Sidney.
R. C. Lucas, Stockman Bank CEO, said, "Stockman Bank will be selling the Glasgow and Malta locations to the First Security Bank of Havre. First Security has existing locations in Poplar and Scobey and can effectively service the Glasgow and Malta Markets due to their close proximity."
CHAMBER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESIGNS (11/22)
Glasgow Chamber executive director Kim Lacey resigned her position on November 15th.
The Chamber is currently undergoing a restructuring of staff and they have made a decision to hire a full time executive director to handle the business of the Chamber of Commerce.
According to members of the Chamber executive board the current chamber staff lack continuity and because of the reason, they have asked all three members of the staff to resign and re-apply for the job as executive director. The chamber staff consisted of an executive director and two support staff positions and all three of those positions are part time.
Lacey made a decision to resign effective immediately and not to apply for the one full time position. The other two support persons, Roberta Barstad and Toy Olsen will be staying on until the end of the year.
The Chamber board is currently advertising for the position of full time executive director and after filling that position will evaluate whether support personnel need to be hired to compliment the executive director.

Gordon Hahn received $2,500 with a matching fund going to the school district.
CHAMBER CONTINUES LOOKING FOR MORE DEVELOPMENT (11/14)
Kim Lacey, Executive Director of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture, told area residents this week not to be too disappointed in losing out to Great Falls in the Venture Star project. She noted that there are several other interests for the area that the Chamber is working on. Lacey stated that at last Thursday's board meeting, there were several presentations on economic development in the area. Skip Erickson and Marv Bethea reported on the progress at St. Marie, there was a speaker regarding an Air Force Mentoring Program, and discussion on the Rotary Rocket, with the possibility of getting some contracts in the area.
Also, the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture has contacted UPS to see if the company is interested in relocating its distribution buildings in Glasgow since the fire in Wolf Point destroyed the building there. She said that Glasgow has 3 buildings that could fit the needs of the company.
LATEST ON OUTLOOK FIRE (11/14)
(AP) The huge heap that was Outlook's only active grain elevator still smolders,
but the little town is bustling with efforts to recover from the Halloween-night
fire that swept through town.
Construction workers poured footings Friday for a new post office, a cleaning company scrubbed Outlook School, Cenex gas station owners discussed whether to rebuild, and homeowners continued to clean up and haul away the charred remains of houses, cars, barns and tool sheds.
A prebuilt post office reportedly is en route from Spokane to be installed this week. "I don't know what normal's going to be now. Our town is a little skimpy," said School Superintendent Jim Riedlinger. The fire destroyed 20 buildings, including three homes, and forced evacuation of the town's 150 residents and causing an estimated $2.5 million in damage.
It began some eight miles west of town, apparently by sparks from a passing locomotive on the Dakota Missouri and Western Railroad. Winds near 60 mph drove it through Outlook and two or three miles beyond.
Of several northeast Montana communities hit hard by wildfires that night, Outlook suffered the most. Wolf Point, Poplar and Sidney also were damaged, and the state fire marshal is investigating all four incidents.
Firefighters saved Outlook School from the flames, but smoke damage is estimated at $200,000. The 43 students are going to classes in Flaxville, 10 miles away. Riedlinger says the school could reopen Nov. 29.
Local officials and DMVW executives haven't heard whether the Columbia Grain Corp. plans to replace its grain elevator, the only one of three that wasn't abandoned. All were destroyed.
And despite a loss of a locomotive, two rail bridges and thousands of wooden railroad ties, the DMVW could resume its weekly service in the area by Dec. 1, Vice President Dennis Ming said.
Officials of the North Dakota-based railroad have said it appears one of their locomotives sparked the fire, although a state investigator has not made that official. The railroad has set up a temporary office in Outlook to assist recovery efforts.
The railroad has hauled scrap concrete and iron to impromptu landfills near town, and employees have used company equipment to help property owners clear rubble.
"Whether or not we started the fire, we would be doing the same thing," Ming said. "We do not have the official cause of the fire, but we're going to do as much in this interim period to help out as we can. We just think it's the neighborly and right thing to do."
DMVW is tallying claims from people who lost uninsured property and will decide this week if it will reimburse residents for their uninsured damages, Ming said.
If the state determines the train caused the fire, property owners' insurance companies most likely will seek reimbursement from the railroad's insurance company, he said.

GLASGOW'S CRIME RATE DROPS (11/12)
The city of Glasgow's crime rate fell last year according to figures released
by the Montana Board of Crime Control.
Glasgow's crime rate for 1998 was 37.79 crimes per 1000 residents. This compared to the numbers from 1997 which showed Glasgow at 43.50 crimes per 1000 residents. The crime numbers from 1998 put Glasgow in 22nd place among cities and towns in the state of
West Yellowstone had the highest crime rate at 101.20 crimes per 1000 residents with Ronan in second place and Havre in third. Billings was ranked 4th, Great Falls fifth and Missoula in sixth place.
Among area cities Plentywood was ranked 23rd , Harlem 25th and Wolf Point ranked at 29.
As a state, Montana's crime rate declined slightly last year, but the incidence of violent crimes rose sharply. The annual survey of law enforcement agencies found four-thousand-799 crimes committed for every 100,000 Montanans during 1998. At the same time, the rate of violent crime defined as murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault jumped by 25 percent. Murders in Montana dropped by nearly half, rapes were up slightly and aggravated assaults were up by 32 percent.

GLASGOW LOSES TO GREAT FALLS IN VENTURESTAR BID (11/5)
Glasgow once again lost the fight to develop the former Air Force Base as Great Falls got the nod as the top Montana contender for a Venture Star Spaceport. Here is the press release from the Montana Department of Commerce:
Great Falls' Malmstrom Air Force Base has emerged as the top Montana contender for a Venture Star Spaceport, according to the Lockheed Corporation. In a July meeting in Helena, Lockheed advised the Department of Commerce and representatives of Great Falls, Glasgow, Manchester and Billings that they would come back with a first-choice selection by the first of the year. All four communities had submitted proposals.
Lockheed called Malmstrom best suited for a Venture Star spaceport. Altitude, access to essential services and in-place infrastructure gave Malmstrom the nod over second-ranked Glasgow. Malmstrom's higher altitude means a less costly launch, an important consideration in future launches that will be privately rather than publicly funded. Similarly, accessibility to essential services, transportation, a labor force and existing infrastructure weighed in the site's favor. Lockheed based its evaluation ranking on launch safety, market service, systems operations and existing spaceport-useable facilities.
"All the communities played an important part in demonstrating to Lockheed and the other fourteen states competing for one of the Spaceports, that Montana is a state of desirable choices," said Commerce Director Peter Blouke. "They have done Montana proud as we vie for a spaceport designation and the subsequent long-term quality jobs that would come with it. We will be calling on them to aid in our efforts to attract other aerospace opportunities to the state.
"Commerce, the state and our congressional delegation are ready to begin the process of helping Great Falls secure a spaceport license from the Federal Aviation Administration, " Blouke added. "This is an essential piece of the next proposal."
During the last legislative session two pieces of legislation were enacted to support Montana's bid to land a spaceport. Senate Bill 220 authorized the sale of up to $20 million in general obligation bonds to support Venture Star spaceport infrastructure development. House Bill 260 includes $300,000 to help offset the cost of preparing a final proposal. The four communities had previously agreed that in the final bidding process they would all support one proposal.
A lawsuit has been filed with the Montana Supreme Court challenging the funding mechanism used in HB260. The Court is expected to render its opinion by late November - early December.
Under the current Lockheed timeline, final proposals are due during the third quarter 2000. Site(s) selection is anticipated to occur by the fall of 2001. Lockheed anticipates operating two spaceports in the United States.
