    Amanda Eggert, Montana Free Press|Jul 24, 2024

    Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has implemented fishing restrictions on 13 western Montana rivers that are exceeding temperature thresholds following an underwhelming snowpack and a heat spell last week that broke records in some parts of the state. The list includes both low-flow rivers that see hoot owl restrictions more years than not, such as the Big Hole, Beaverhead and Jefferson rivers, and other, higher-volume rivers that typically hold onto enough water to stay open for afternoon anglin...

  • Wildfires Increase Flooding Risks

    Jul 24, 2024

    Recent hot temperatures and dry conditions have triggered wildfires throughout the state. While some wildfire effects are predictable, a lesser-known effect can be an increased risk of flooding due to wildfire burns. “It is difficult to think about flooding in the middle of or after a wildfire event. We urge residents to be observant of rapidly changing conditions, especially on uphill slopes, and be prepared for the possibility of flooding,” said Traci Sears, the Montana National Flood Insurance Program Coordinator at the Department of Nat...

    Zeke Lloyd, Montana Free Press|Jul 24, 2024

    On Wednesday, July 17, Brandi Castleberry stood behind the counter of the store at Kim's Marina & Resort, looking out over the empty room. Just outside the window, a fleet of boats floated idly at the docks. A few more dotted the water beyond. A thick cloud of white smoke hung over Canyon Ferry Lake. The Horse Gulch Fire had just turned a week old. "Typically we are on a waiting list, fully booked, with everything from RV sites to boat rentals," resort owner Lukas Jewett said. Jewett estimates t...

  • Headwaters Country Jam: 49 Winchester headed to the 'Bridge' near Three Forks

    Alan Sculley, For the Three Forks Voice|Jul 24, 2024

    "Leavin' This Holler," the new album from 49 Winchester, includes the song "Make It Count," which refers to both the opportunity and the challenge that faced the band when work began on the album. The previous 49 Winchester album, "Fortune Favors the Bold," had marked an inflection point for the band. After releasing three albums and building a touring base as a true do-it-yourself indie act, 49 Winchester had signed with New West Records and seen "Fortune Favors the Bold" get rave reviews and...

  • Montana's Plan to Curb Opioid Overdoses Includes Vending Machine

    Mara Silvers, Montana Free Press|Jul 24, 2024

    Before she stopped using drugs for good, Cierra Coon estimates that she overdosed eight times in a span of two weeks in the fall of 2022. One of those times, the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone helped save her life. She was riding in a car on the back roads of the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana when she lost consciousness. Someone in the car grabbed a small bottle of naloxone, sprayed it up her nose, and performed CPR until she came to. Coon said having quick access to the overdose reversal agent, also known by the brand...

    Bill Forman, For the Three Forks Voice|Jul 17, 2024

    After his 2013 album "Set You Free" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Gary Allan should have had it easy. And by all appearances, he would.

"There's a country song out now which I wish I'd written, that says, 'Every storm runs out of rain,'" the celebrated poet and civil rights activist told an interviewer. "I'd make a sign of that if... Full story
