Vaccinations and tests

Bozeman Deaconess Hospital employees recently began receiving COVID-19 vaccinations just as area leaders anticipate a holiday surge. Taylor Rose, director of Clinical Services & Operations Bozeman Health Big Sky Medical Center said holiday staffing looks good, the medical center is not currently at capacity and preparations have been made.

Discovery moves

Across the country, dancers were laid off from performing with entire seasons and shows canceled as the coronavirus progressed and never let up. Many of these artists took to sharing their talent and knowledge with dancers far and wide through virtual platforms.

Surviving the city

Sean Doherty says that if he had not run away from the city he would be “a very different, miserable person.”

New York City was fun for him in his mid-20s, but it would not have been sustainable. It may have taken years or decades for him to realize that he just did not quite fit. He was in the wrong environment.

‘Invisible heroes’

Writer’s note: My mom, the laboratory QA safety specialist at the state lab, used to walk my sister and I through the halls and different components of the lab when we were little. I thought Debbie was the coolest woman then, especially after I started hearing about all the ultras she ran, and still feel that way now.

Elk on the move

The area elk herd will be on the move this winter, navigating pitfalls of Big Sky’s late season Porcupine Wildfire that ate up over 650 acres of United States Forest Service and Fish, Wildlife & Parks land.

Game night

One thing that is easy to do in a small group, and almost preferable, is playing a game. There are so many tabletop options anymore, even those ‘not-super-into-games’ people can find something they like.
