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.

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.

Willing to put in the work

According to an assessment from Safe Tech Solutions, a consulting firm that specializes in emergency medical services, the long-term sustainability of the Ennis Ambulance Service is questionable. Stakeholders of EAS met in the Madison Valley Bank conference room to discuss the assessment Aug. 12.
