Oh what a beautiful week of sunshine and showers here. I hear there’s been some moisture in other areas that desperately needed it too. I’m grateful for every drop.

Congratulations to my newspaper page neighbor Wally Badgett, creator of the Earl cartoons, on being awarded the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame’s prestigious Saddle of Honor award. He joins only two other recipitients, Charles M. Russell and Jay Contway. Wally is not only the creative genius behind the Earl cartoons, but was a college rodeo coach, is a genuine cowboy and more. Wally is invited to Great Falls, Mont. Aug. 20 for the Charles M. Russell Art Show where he’ll receive his award.
