Fall Clean Sweep Kicks Off This Saturday, Oct. 4

Wolf Point Beautification Committee, along with Fort Peck Housing Authority, reminds community members and organizations that fall 2014 Clean Sweep will take place the week of Oct. 6-11.
Pick up large trash bags at High Plains Motors and then take some time that week to clean up around your neighborhood, business and public areas.
Weeds are big problem, especially after the August rains. If you see unsightly weeds, pull them up or cut them off and get rid of them. The town will look so much better in the spring.
Wolf Point residents may place bagged trash and tree branches in separate piles by the curb for pick-up during that week. If you have the means, take your trash to the landfill. City of Wolf Point crews will not be able to collect large metal appliances or construction waste this fall.

Letter About Local Healthcare

Dear Editor:
I experienced my first ambulance ride last week when my husband called 911 after a sleepless night of pain and inability to walk normally. The EMTs arrived promptly and did an efficient job of hauling me to the hospital and later to Poplar for a CT scan.
The purpose of this letter is not to tell of my physical problem [pinched nerve], but to say what a positive experience it was. The personnel at Trinity Hospital from the office workers, nurses and on to the doctor were outstanding. There wasn’t a bad one in the bunch. They all knew what they were doing and were very pleasant to deal with.
