Good morning and happy Election Day.
On the Beacon this morning, check out Kellyn Brown’s guide to everything you need to know on Election day, in terms of candidates, polling places and other info. Majestic Valley Arena is closing its doors, though hopefully just for a few months. The state Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from Wayne Hixon of Eureka, convicted of murder in 2005. The federal government appears to have tentatively rejected a proposal by BNSF railway to blast within Glacier National Park for avalanche control. Two grizzlies moved into the Cabinet Mountain wilderness to augment the population there have been killed.
In Butte, the politics are getting stinky. According to the secretary of state’s office, at least 175,000 absentee ballots have been cast so far. And celebrated conservationist, author and angler George Grant died Sunday at the age of 102.
Finally, nudists in Florida want their own clothing-optional polling site. Luckily, I think Montana’s climate precludes any such proposal here. Have a great day and VOOOOOOOTE!
