Terrific Tuesdays kicks off Dec. 2
It’s time to simply “Let It Be Christmas” in Terry, with the Prairie County Chamber of Commerce sponsored Terrific Tuesdays, and other events coming this holiday season. With a nod to singer Alan Jackson’s song, the theme “Let It Be Christmas” will anchor both traditional and new events in Terry this December.
On Terrific Tuesdays, many businesses will stay open until 7 p.m. to allow customers extra time to shop. The schedule of events includes:
Publisher Dan Killoy recently named Terry native Christa VanDyke as the new editor of the Terry Tribune. VanDyke will replace Kay Hoffer who has gone to work for the Glendive Ranger Review as a staff writer.
“Christa brings a lot of experience to the job, plus her being a native is just a great fit,” said Killoy. “The Tribune is looking forward to continuing its efforts to deliver a quality product in Prairie County.”

It’s a banner year for sugar beets in Eastern Montana.
“They’re bringing in a very good crop,” said Russ Fullmer, agricul-tural manager for Sidney Sugars.
Vandals are leaving their mark at the Prairie County Shooting Range, and it has little to do with target practice.
“They’re just trashing it,” Prai-rie County Sheriff Duncan Hedg-es reported of the damage being done to the facility located about two miles north of Terry.

Prairie County Commissioner Todd Devlin’s politi-cal duties will soon be widening. Devlin, whose nearly two-decade tenure on the Prairie County Board of Com-mission began in 1995, was recently elected to serve as the second vice president of the Montana Association of Counties at MACo’s annual conference in Septem-ber. The elected appointment means that he will step into the president’s position of MACO in 2016.
