Zombies Invade Montana

 News reports from all over the country were raving about the infection quickly consuming the nation.  People were suffering from flu-like symptoms and quickly dying within a week.  It was suspected that it all began from a cruise ship passenger returning home from a cruise through South America.  He had gotten adventurous chasing down a wild monkey and was supposedly bitten but didn't bother to say anything to anyone before returning to the ship.  The boat returned to Texas without any radio communication and when the ship was disembarked hoards of decaying bloody bodies were crawling and jumping from the ship ravenously attacking the shipyard crew and security.  No living survivors...       

 The Unliving were contained and eventually killed. The Zombie threat was over – we thought. But, the Zombies were bitten by bees and the infection spread first to the bees then to humans as they were bitten and stung.

 Through the summer a giant black cloud of bees came northward from Texas – leaving a swath of new Zombie hoards throughout the widwest. The bees arrived in Montana in the fall: they began spearing through the air and swarming ravenously.  You could hear the flaps of their tiny wings as they swarmed together and grew to cloud the skies with their masses.  First attacking the birds and wild animals, and then our livestock and domesticated animals; then stinging people and biting them as they were walking the streets and working outside.  Eventually hiding in homes and stinging and biting people inside their own houses as people were trying to care for their sick animals and family members.  The virus turned the bees into killer swarms that quickly spread the disease throughout our haven.  No barricade or shotgun was going to slow down this invasion.

Now we're fighting for our lives as we escape from the zombie hoards.  Will YOU survive?

Silos Area Master Plan

The Silos area has become a very important community to Broadwater County and to Townsend. The Silos Recreation Area in conjunction with the Silos area Community bring a lot of visitors to the area. The Silos Community has become larger than many Montana towns.

The Silos area provides a great opportunity to have a "destination" spot in the county that draws people from all over the country -- if  growth and improvements are planned and executed well.

You have an opportunity to participate in the planning process for developing a Master Plan in conjuction with the Silos Community, the Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Land Management and Broadwater County. There are a series of meetings planned to be held in the Library Community room in Townsend. The meetings will be 6:00pm - 8:00pm. 

The meeting dates are July 26, August 24 and September 28 - put them on your calendar.

In addition you can visit the Silos Planning Website at CanyonFerry-Silos.  Please consider taking the short survey of about 29 questions. The survey can be completed in less than 5 minues: CanyonFerry-Silos survey
