Help the Frenchtown High School Band Make It to Disneyland [SPONSORED]

As much as I don't want to quote Whitney Houston, "I believe the children are our future." I believe that music is the only thing that separates us from the animals (besides the opposable thumbs). The kids of the Frenchtown High School band are a talented group, who love music and are looking to show off their musical skills at Disneyland's "Magic Music Days." Not only will they get to perform for visitors to the park, but they will also attend music clinics and workshops. However, as we know, it is difficult getting one kid to Southern California, let alone a bunch. That is where the community's help is needed.

Painful Volleyball Mishap For Frenchtown, Montana Player [VIDEO]

(Update: The player hit in the video is named Vanessa Stavish and she sent us a response on how she's holding up: "That is me getting hit in the video and I can assure you that I am completely fine and I got up and played the rest of that game as well as the next game! It was a great hit by Haley Belgarde and I thinks it's awesome that she hit it that hard to knock me on my butt. I am in no way "embarrassed" or in "trauma" due to that hit. Just a great volleyball play.")

These local volleyball teams from both Frenchtown and Columbia Falls, Montana were playing in the Class A Divisionals in Polson over the weekend when one player lobs the ball over the net a little too hard. The C. Falls player accidentally nails the Frenchtown player so hard that it sends her FLYING...

Update – Mill Creek Fire Almost Contained at 700 Acres [AUDIO]

UPDATE 1:00 p.m. Friday, July 26

The Mill Creek Fire is now at 700 acres in the area around Frenchtown, and fire crews are working to complete containment lines around the fire. Firefighters from local agencies and departments are working the fire today. The strategy is to keep the fire from growing.

DNRC Fire Information Officer Cindy Super said Friday afternoon that evacuees are being allowed to return to their homes,

"We pretty much lifted the evacuations, though that could change in any minute," Super said. "The fire is still active, and the other thing is that we have a lot of traffic in the area with crews coming in and out. We're keeping those roads open to local traffic and local emergency traffic only. People have been very supportive of the firefighters and we really appreciate everyone working with us to keep people safe."
DNRC Fire Information Officer Cindy Super

UPDATE 2:00 a.m. Friday, July 26

The Mill Creek Fire has consumed between 550 and 700 acres of grassland near Frenchtown. The Missoula County Sheriff's Department's Facebook page has an update list of streets and neighborhoods that have received voluntary evacuation notices.. They include: Mill Creek Road, Spur Road, Groom Road, Spring Hill Road, Bunchgrass, Junegrass, Chula Vista, Fred Lane and Porte Lane.

Fire Information officer Cindy Super as of 9:00 p.m. Thursday night..


 

UPDATE - 4:00 p.m. Thursday, July 25

Department of Natural Resources and Conservation spokesperson Cindy Super said the grass fire near Frenchtown started when a mower struck a rock, sparking the fire that raced up the hill near Mill Creek.

"The fire started around two this afternoon and it went really fast up the hill with all the light slashy fuels in the grass and its about 100 acres by now," Super said.

"We have a single engine air tanker, we have a couple of helicopters and we have crews and fire engines from DNRC, the Forest Service, Frenchtown Fire, Missoula Rural, Missoula City Fire and traffic control by the county sheriff's department and the Montana Highway Patrol. Evacuations are in effect basically between Mill Creek and Fred Lane."

Super said people who do not live in the area should stay away so that emergency vehicles can access the area.

"People can expect a delay if they're trying to get into an evacuated area," Super said. "We're really trying to keep people from clogging the roads, and we would ask if people don't need to be in this area they just need to stay away."

Super said no homes have been lost.
