Thursday, May 16, found numerous agencies gathered in the Marias River Electric conference room discussing what could be done about Alkali Flats along Interstate 15, north of Shelby. The meeting was held three days after Shelby resident Laura Jo McKamey died in a fatal accident when high winds caused a whiteout in the area.
The first official three-day weekend to kick off summer is almost here. While the weekend is usually full of activities–barbecues, graduations, a trip to the lake–it is also a time to remember those who have gone before us with a visit to their final resting place.
The Shelby Promoter will be closed Monday, May 27, for the Memorial Day holiday. Deadline for the May 29 issue is 3 p.m. on Friday, May 24, for news, photos and all ads.
