This year Prairie County Montana celebrates its 100 year milestone. As more people settled in the area now comprising Prairie County, unrest grew when people thought that the Custer County Commissioners were spending all of the people’s tax money in and around Miles City. They envisioned a new county that would be responsive to better roads and schools. They wanted taxation with representation and the administration of county affairs closer to home, rather then several miles away.
Over the course of the past few months we have been experiencing intermittent thefts of gas throughout the city of Terry. Please be sure to check your vehicle’s fuel level when you get home at night, and again in the morning when you start it up. If there is a discrepancy from what your fuel gauge registered the night before to what it says the next morning, please contact the Sheriff’s Office to report the theft.
Among the topics covered at the MSU Extension Winter Series on Thursday in Terry, was the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) Sage Grouse Initiative.
