The local group is making its case to Billings voters to pass mill levies for local students.   

Campaign co-chairman Luke Kobold says passage of the levies will mean the district is responding to the demand from parents and the Billings community for things like STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) offerings, reduced class size, programs for struggling students as well and gifted and talented, and funding for suicide prevention and school safety.

For the next six weeks at the Montana State University Billings Library will host a lecture series “What’s Cooking: Exploring American Food Culture, Politics and History.”

It will feature faculty and staff in the fields of history, science, communications and Native American Studies as well as two local authors.

Brent Roberts is the director of library services at MSUB, which is hosting the lecture series.

           U-S Magistrate Carolyn Ostby was the first to welcome 25 people from 16 countries as new U.S. Citizens. Ostby presided over the naturalization ceremony at the James F. Battin Federal Courthouse in Billings, Montana.

She says while the new citizens swore to abandon all allegiance to the government of any foreign state or country, they don’t have to give up their love of the country or the people where they were born.

An art exhibition, readings, a jazz improvisation performance are just a few of the launching points meant to inspire contemplation and a community conversation about water.

Artist Sherri Cornett is the force behind the project titled “Flow.”

During her hikes around the region, she became inspired by water.

“Where I’ve taken time to sit down by the water and really take in the calming effects, thinking about, meditating about water,” she says.
