‘A whole ecosystem’

"Shopping local is just more important than ever,” Kate Tomkinson, owner of Trove, said considering the complications brought on by the coronavirus. “This season could be a make or break for a lot of businesses,” she continued.

The beautiful life of Al Mal

Al “Al Mal” Malinowski is amiable and functions with a kind of ease that is found in people who help shape things. In his case, he helped shape Big Sky. Still, he gets a little uncomfortable when asked to talk about himself and would rather discuss other people, projects and the lost history of the community.

The Training Corner

Q: Is it true that you cannot out-train a bad diet? Or a BIG healthy diet? I have an active job, and train 3X/ week pretty hard, but can’t seem to move my belt notch. I am stronger and suck less wind, but still carry an extra 30 pounds. Any practical tips? Joe, 45

The performance was live streamed on the Arts Council of Big Sky’s Facebook page, which allowed for people across the nation – including students in Madras, Oregon on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation – to enjoy the performance. PHOTOS COURTESY DJ Soikkeli

Masked Big Sky kids in Warren Miller Performing Arts Center (WMPAC) were greeted with a beat on an animal skin drum, a prayer spoken in ancient tongue and a man wearing a brightly colored regalia and a full headdress. That man was American Indian rap artist Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, professionally known as Supaman.
