I've been working on the air since 1983 doing everything from News to airshifts to Sports Play-by-Play.   I graduated from Wadsworth High School in Wadsworth, Ohio and am still a big

Indians, Browns and Buckeyes fan.   I also DJ lots of weddings, parties and events.    I attended a Jr. college in Northeastern Oklahoma in Miami, Okla. and then spent a year at Brown Institute of Broadcasting in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.  That was fun.

High Unemployment? Al Dosch says he can’t find workers!

The national unemployment rate remains over 9% and Montana's rate is still near 8-percent, so you might be surprised to hear Al Dosch of Al's Diesel in Cut Bank say he can't find workers.   Al blames the structure of the current structure of unemployment and welfare benefits.

"Right now, If I could find 'em, I would hire 10 more workers by tomorrow morning."   If we could find people who have a general idea of what we're doing and "wants to work, we'll even train them."    He says, don't get me wrong, there are people out there who need our help, but too many able-bodied people would rather take what the government will give them and not have to work.   If he could sit next to President Obama and suggest what's needed to create jobs, he would first say re-structure the welfare-unemployment structure and make all able-bodied people work.

X-Country is a tough sport

Some looked like they were going to lose their lunch, others bent over and some just laid down on the ground......All were sweating profusely and breathing hard.

Just a few of my observations at the Shelby hosted Marias Valley X-country Invitational on Monday evening

Veteran’s Memorial Flag site better than ever

Just getting the 30x50 Veteran's Memorial Flag in the air 6 years ago was a major job, but now the 5-member flag committee is taking further steps to make sure that the "Flag will fly forever."

A veterans memorial display was rapidly being set into place just below the flag site to the South, along the Frontage road on the West edge of Shelby

Who would you choose, for your reception?

When two of Country music's biggest stars got married, they decided they would leave the music to someone else so that they could enjoy the day.   Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert chose Neal McCoy to play at their party and it got me thinking; what if I or you could get anyone we wanted to play for our wedding reception who would we choose

Railroad Overpass in Cut Bank, At Long Last!

We might just call it perseverance!   There are many in Cut Bank that have never given up on an overpass being built, but it has been a long time coming.   Former Cut Bank Mayor, Councilman and still a businessman,  Bill McCauley says the city has documentation as far back as 1939 that shows City leaders, like Gene Boyle, saw the need for an overpass

What would we talk about, if we didn’t have Weather or Wolves

The best chance for Gray Wolves to be taken off the Endangered Species list, now lies with Congress thru an amendment in the Budget bill.   For the record, Earthjustice says this would be the first time a species has ever been removed from the Endangered Species list by Congress.

But what isn't getting as much press is that removing wolves from the Endangered Species list is not the end of troubles for game officials and livestock producers.

If you heard my Legislative report over the weekend you heard me say that the current program that is supposed to pay for damage by wolves is seriously underfunded.  Senator Lew Jones said he testified in favor of HB 622 to allocate money out of the State general fund to ensure quick and timely payment to livestock producers for wolf kills.

Athlete of the Week, now year!

It's going to be chaotic again, getting ready, but it's always worth it in the end.  I'm speaking about our Athlete of the Year Banquet which will be at the Shelby Elks Club, Wed. May 11th.   We have lined up our featured speaker for this year's event.   Mark Samson, the Head Football Coach at M-S-U Northern in Havre.  He has been coaching in Montana since 1982 and is the first Coach to take the Havre School to the N-A-I-A playoffs, back in 2006.  He has also been recruiting heavily in our area and in fact his starting Quarterback last year is one of our former Athlete's of the Year.   Derek Lear, who couldn't make it to the banquet when he was a Sr. because he was playing in the State Golf  Tournament.

By the way......any thoughts on this year's Athlete of the year?   Usually we choose someone who excels in three sports but not always.   I recall more than any Loni Perkins of Conrad whose accomplishments in Track & Field were so outstanding that she was named our Athlete of the Year.

On The Road Again, Watching Youth Sports

I have been everywhere from Heart Butte to Conrad and Cut Bank to watch youth sports this past month.  In this case I mean real youth like the Jr. High Volleyball teams.  I have one daughter playing 6th grade volleyball and one playing 7th, so they travel together and we watch the Shelby 8th graders as well.   To watch their improvement is great fun the idea of playing to win also takes hold.  One of my daughters friends and ours, Kim Parsell served eight points in a row to bring the 7th graders back from an 8 point deficit in Cut Bank Monday night.
