Interviews for nursing home administrator positions will be in-house

During the Madison County Commissioner’s weekly meeting on Feb. 23, the commissioners unanimously moved to approve authorization for filling two nursing home administrator positions in-house at both county nursing facilities and approved advertising the position in-house for five days. The positions will be permanent, full-time and exempt.

Ennis Town Commissioners met with architecture, engineering and design firm Cushing Terrell on Feb. 18 to kick off the development of a master plan for the community. The eight-month process began with a lengthy discussion on which issues the commission felt need to be addressed.

What makes your garden grow?

The death of my first Roma tomato plant nearly a decade ago haunts me to this day. The beautiful specimen, carefully planted in a large pot for easy relocation from indoors to outdoors, was doing swimmingly. Green tomatoes were just ripening red when I left it on the porch on a lovely July day in Big Sky.
