From what I'm reading & hearing, the "need" for blood in our Rocky Mountain West has now reached critical proportions! Our American Red Cross has come to the rescue. There's be a Blood Drive today (Wednesday) over in Cut Bank. Today's Blood Drive will be in operation from 11:30 until 5:30 at St. Margaret's Church. You can call & schedule YOUR appointment at: 1 800 RED CROSS &, of course, walk ins are encouraged & more than welcome. To quote one of my real heroes, the late Paul Wellstone, "We all do better when we all do better."
