Helena City News

I just got off the telephone with Dave Smith, editor of the Helena City News.  He had some great news that the Helena City News has gone digital in addition to the paper copy delivered to your mailbox each month.  So if you don't have time to read the paper version, maybe having an electronic one available will help you keep up on the latest happenings in our town.

You can find the Helena City News at

Great job, Dave.

And while I'm writing about this, I noted that there is a link to the Helena City News Blog.  When I clicked to go there I found out my friend, Brian Davidson, has been honored for heroism!  You can read all about it by clicking on the link to the Blog above.  Congratulations, Brian!
