  • Newsrooms statewide join forces to explore aging in Montana

    Nov 14, 2019

    HELENA, MONTANA — Growing old may not be for the faint of heart but, as anyone over 40 will tell you, it sure beats the alternative. Montana is in the process of putting that truism to the test. The state’s median age, according to U.S. Census data, is 39.8 years, making Montana the 10th oldest state in the nation and the oldest in the western U.S. The state’s population of residents in their 50s, 60s, and 70s outpaces the national average and its population of 20- and 30-somethings lags behind. The economic, cultural and personal impac...

  • "Do whatever HE tells you," John 2:5

    Diana Taylor, Defendress of the Faith|Nov 14, 2019

    It was August, 1993 in Chesapeake, Va., when we heard the tornado warning. My husband immediately yelled, “Get into the closets!” Soon I heard the deafening roar of the proverbial ‘freight-train.’ Terrified, I thought, ‘This can’t be happening!’ “Something” made me, I mean made me, cry out loudly, “HAIL, MARY, FULL OF GRACE!” Then all was calm. We looked outside to behold a bizarre sight. There were six huge pine trees twisted off about 20 feet up but just a few shingles sheared off the ridge of our two-story home. Sadly, other families suffer...
