Jasmine Frueh was an employee at Glasgow Flower & Gift who stood out. Owner Peggy Aakre explained that after Frueh had been there for just over a year, she decided she wanted to help give her some additional training to hone her skills. She intended to have her go through a designing program for floral arrangements. Frueh was able to complete her basic certification for basic floral arrangement design through the Floral Design Institute, based out of Portland. Videos were shipped to Glasgow and Frueh was able to complete the lessons at the shop after hours, or during very slow times. The program was such a success that she will be taking the advanced course soon.

After a last-minute change of venue, the 4th annual Aaron Chatten Memorial Softball Tournament was a big success. The Screaming Gophers of Frazer defeated F N' Classy of Sidney in the two-game championship by the scores of 19-7 and 23-12. Although the tournament had to be moved from Glasgow to Fort Peck due to less-than-desirable field conditions at Sullivan Park, the tournament saw its highest number of teams in its four-year existence with ten teams taking part in the event.

The 20th annual Longest Dam Race saw the most number of participants in the event's history according to Glasgow Chamber Executive Director Lisa Olk. "We had 308 participants last year and this year we had 408," Olk said. "It was a very well attended event and I don't know what brought the people out, but we are excited for the turnout." Olk said that the pre-registration was at 308 participants by noon Thursday. She also said that in previous years, the event does about $1,500 worth of sales the day of the race and they met that number as well

A state of disaster was declared in Opheim by Gov. Marc Racicot on June 23, two days after a devasting tornado roared through the town. The declaration allows officials to use money from the state general fund to meet emergency needs. Mayor John Marvin pushed debris off the highway with a bulldozer in the dark because he is also the maintenance chief. And the chief of police, fire chief, building inspector and emergency medical training coordinator. June 24, three officials from the Montana Disaster and Emergency Services Division toured Opheim with Mayor Marvin and Valley County's DES officer, Greg Speer.

"Fiddler On The Roof" opened Friday night at the Fort Peck Theatre. It is the first presentation for the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council's summer of celebration, marking it's 30th anniversary. The star of the show is of course Tevye, not the fiddler. Jack Sigman, who plays Tevye, gives a truly inspired performance. Sigman, a retired Navy engineer, who moved to St. Marie a few years ago and who has not performed since high school, cannot only act, he can sing. Other local talent include Dennis Garsjo, John, Mary, Marcie and Anna Fahlgren, Janet Sigman and the Black family, including mom Paulette and children Veronica, Denali and Philip, as well as Katie Truscott, Desiree Clampitt, Jim Smrcka and Wes Allen.
