Sheridan Pool improvements underway

The Ruby Valley Swimming Club replaced the Sheridan pool filter Sept. 26. 

A new fiberglass pool filter replaced the public pool’s original filter from 1969. It was evident that the 50-year-old water filter had passed its useful life with the increasing problems of water quality, temperature and flaking rust from the steel filter.

National Dog Week

In case this was not already on your calendar, we are in the midst of National Dog Week. Most residents of Gallatin and Madison county do not need an extra excuse to celebrate their dogs, but it never hurts to shamelessly post large quantities of pictures of your pup on social media. 

Grizzlies in the Gravellys

Donivan Campbell wrapped his hands around the back of his head and neck as a grizzly bear pinned him face down in a forest west of Black Butte, the highest peak of the Gravelly Mountains. He felt the moist warmth of the bear’s mouth on the hand covering his head as a large tooth slid between his fingers.

Claws and jaws and teeth

Two separate grizzly bear attacks resulted in three injured hunters on the west side of the Gravelly Mountain range on Monday according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. It is unclear whether one or more bears were involved. FWP is asking hunters to leave the area, and the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest is closing Cottonwood Road.
