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.

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.

Making the connection

It is not hard to associate aging adults with limited technological knowledge, nor is it difficult to understand that teens can jump onto a new device with ease. And anyone can understand that tech support in the form of automated chats or lengthy phone calls can lead to more stress than solutions.

BURN BAN IN MADISON COUNTY

A Madison County burn ban went into effect at noon July 15.

Fireworks and open burning are not allowed on private lands due to dry conditions. Two-thirds of the county is in a severe drought. The Madison County Commissioners signed the ban July 14.
