Well, it seems that the local rumor mill has been running full speed for a couple of months now about the Wise River Club and it's change of ownership. And in Butte and Southwest Montana, the rumor mill sometimes runs consecutive 8 hour shifts around the clock. Here at the radio ranch, we get mostly questions rather than answers. "Did you hear that the Wise River Club was sold? Did you hear who bought it?" We get a lot of that. We also get a few educated guesses that are passed off as fact which also helps lead to the maelstrom of misinformation that inevitably ensues. We're also getting a lot of that.

The Southwest Native Community's 2nd Annual Pow wow is set for September 8 & 9 at the Butte Plaza Mall and organizers are planning a variety of activities for the gathering. The mission of the Southwest Native Community is to support the Native community and surrounding areas by educating and empowering our youth and adults on topics such as culture, traditions, history, language, arts and other important personal and social gatherings and events. Their hope is to strengthen families and our communities by creating a positive environment for the people to be encouraged with the belief that creativity and connections will bring together a better way of teaching our children for the future. The Pow wow is free of admission, and all are welcome.
