Where Can You Watch the Griz Play in the National Spotlight This Season?

Whoa! This is pretty exciting stuff. The clock is counting down and we're actually getting ready for a real football season this fall. We don't need to spend much time revisiting the cluster that unfolded in 2020. But if your memories are fuzzy I'll give you the CliffsNotes version of Griz football last year: COVID-19 hits, there's still hope for a season, then there's no season, followed by plans of a shortened season, UM drops out of the shortened season, and the Griz finally play two meaningless games in the spring. So by the time early September rolls around - which is crazy to think is five weeks away - it'll be almost 2 years since the Griz played meaningful football.

City of Polson Declares a Water Emergency

The City of Polson has declared a water emergency, prohibiting watering of lawns and the washing of cars. KGVO spoke to City manager Ed Meece on Monday afternoon. “The city of Polson draws our municipal water from seven sub ground aquifers,” said Meece. “Those aquifers and those wells have been under an extraordinary amount of demand in the last two to three weeks. We have actually been on an odd and even watering schedule for residential watering during that time however, this past weekend, several of our water tanks hit a critically low reserve and so we began a process of water restrictions on Saturday afternoon, prohibiting all lawn watering, vehicle washing and any other type of excess water usage.”

It’s a New Look (and More Beer) for One Missoula Restaurant

It's been a bit of a rough stretch for restaurants in Missoula (and across the country) when it comes to having enough staff. There was a story last week about the Top Hat closing to give employees a day of rest - and also letting it be known that they're looking to hire. Another place in town that's had staffing issues of their own is Buffalo Wild Wings. I'm not sure what their current schedule is - but there was a time that they were closed on Mondays. Check that, I just called over to BWW and they're still closed on Mondays, TFN.

Soon after pong, came games like Pac-man and Dig Dug. Fast forward to today, and the video game industry is raking in over $135 billion dollars a year featuring games that have amazing graphics and deep storylines. Games take place in places all over the country - mostly metropolitan areas like New York City or Los Angeles. But, how many huge video games have been inspired by Montana?

Will Santa Fly Over Missoula Again In 2021?

One of the coolest local stories from last year was the gradual development and the return of the Santa Fly-Over. For a brief bit of background - the Santa Fly-Over was an annual tradition in Missoula for many years, in which Northwest Fresh Tidyman's hired a helicopter to fly Santa over the city, and kids from all over town could see the glowing lights of Santa and his reindeer. When Tidyman's closed their Missoula store, the tradition of the Santa Fly-Over went with it... until last year, when a Facebook group got together in an attempt to bring it back.

Big Controversy as UM Alum Nominated for Director of BLM

Missoula is a town that has thrived off of the timber industry. Lumber and the University of Montana have been the economic core of Missoula for over 100 years. Not to mention the US Forest Service Headquarters founded here in 1908. But the University of Montana and the lumber industry have not always seen eye to eye. As it turns out, some former UM students in the 1980's and 90's became environmental activists aiming to stop the lumber industry. One of those activist is now facing backlash in Washington DC, after being nominated as Director of the Bureau of Land Management.

The 1990s: The glorious era of Doc Martens, grunge, and Magic Eye posters. Those days, sadly, are long gone. (Speaking of which: Does anyone want to buy 1400 Beanie Babies? They’re near mint condition!) But the dream of the ’90s lives on at the movies, where countless blockbusters from the era have gotten sequels or remakes.

Then, the levels quickly moved back into the "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" and "Moderate."
