Weekend: Poker Tourney, Donut Saga, Redistricting Gridlock

By Beacon Staff

Good morning; on the Beacon today, the Columbia Falls girls softball team is making another run at state. Whitefish is gearing up for what could be the biggest poker tournament in Montana history. Also in Whitefish, the doughnut saga continues! And basically goes back to square one. And Warren Miller golfs in a torrential downpour.

In state news, the commission tasked with redrawing Montana’s political districts has already ground to a screeching, partisan halt. Hot Springs continues to have raucous public meetings, with the public works director butting heads with the mayor. The recent spring storms in southeastern Montana killed more than 4,000 calves. Leaders of Montana and Saskatchewan are partnering to build the first large-scale project to capture and store carbon emissions from a coal-burning power plant. Have a great day.
