Weekend Buffet: North Shore Sues, Billings Plane Crash, Parrot is Homeward Bound

By Beacon Staff

Good morning and happy World Turtle Day.

On the Beacon this morning, Myers Reece writes about a proposed state park in Lakeside. It has wide support, but, like most things, needs funding. North Shore developers, who say their project was wrongfully singled out and denied, have sued Flathead County. Bigfork senior Andrew Whittaker, who didn’t run track until his sophomore year, hopes to retain his 100-meter title. They are building “green” townhouses in Whitefish. And the Eureka man who shot at officers was apparently on drugs.

In other news, it appears it will be a soggy Memorial Day weekend in Glacier national park, and the Flathead for that matter – bummer. In Billings, a pilot was killed when a planed crashed into a building in the Heights area. Timber giant Plum Creek and the state are negotiating road easements.

And finally, a lost parrot was returned to his owner after telling a veterinarian his address. Apparently, “he kept mum with the cops, but began chatting after a few days with the vet.”

Have a great three-day weekend.
