Good morning and happy 100th birthday to the late Katharine Hepburn.
It’s a gray, rainy day in the Flathead, but the weatherman promises sunny skies by this weekend. On the Beacon this morning, Katrin Frye profiles John Dunnigan, one of the busiest musicians in the business. Myers Reece talks to the Glacier Knights’ Steve Biggs, a 45-year-old doctor, bodybuilder, father of quadruplets and 265-pound defensive end. Four state senators are requesting a special session to deal with school funding. And Kalispell’s Amanda Kimmel, the 23-year-old former beauty queen, falls two votes short of winning $1 million on the CBS reality show “Survivor.”
Elsewhere, Lee Newspapers interviewed the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate about their health care plans, and the majority in the crowded field prefers people to buy their own insurance. The deadline for states to comply with the Real ID Act has come and gone – did anyone notice? And High Country News profiles the West’s “traveling anti-wolf evangelist.”
And finally, a 9-year-old was pulled over after a drunk in Harrisburg, Pa., apparently used him as a designated driver. Charges are pending.
