The conversation surrounding the listing and delisting of Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzly bears includes many voices. From ranchers to environmental groups to Yellowstone National Park, each voice provides an important perspective. The Madisonian will cover these perspectives as the conversation continues.

All about the money

Census data defines communities for a decade. Data is used to redistrict, refund and redefine demographics. While Madison County is a travel destination for many, it is also home to many more, and as such it is important for those living here to make sure they are counted.

COVID-19 update

Melissa Brummell, RN, Public Health Director, reported 10 new positive COVID-19 since July 28, 2020, making 73 positive cases with 20 still being active. In addition, 2 new seasonal residents have tested positive with both cases still active.

Limited resources

The Ruby Valley Medical Center could not find an ambulance service within four counties to transport a patient in need of immediate care to Butte July 19.

A week after Herbert Smith’s heart attack, he was back in RVMC. He needed to go to St. James Hospital in Butte, where the pacemaker and stint in his heart were put in days earlier.
