Butte High will raise the “Butte 37” flag in honor of Pat Kearney Thursday night before the Bulldogs take on Missoula Big Sky.
The flag is raised before each game to recognize the 37 Bulldog football teams that were not able to play at Narache. On October 23 the flag will be raised to memorialize Kearney, a press release said.
Kearney was a Butte broadcaster, journalist, historian and tireless Butte booster, local news outlets said.
Robin Jordan has worked in print and broadcast in Butte for more than 30 years.
The Montana Film and New Media Forum called it a wrap last Wednesday, and the event seemed to exceed expectations.
A prime indicator of the Forum’s success was a delay in food service during Wednesday’s brunch. One caterer said that they were told to be ready to feed 45 diners that morning, but double that came to the second day of the forum.
Montana Film Commissioner Staggs said of the turn out, “We’re just thrilled.”
The forum finished with keynote speakers Brunson Green and Jeff Sneider.
Green founded Harbinger pictures, and he focuses on making films from stories, “that resonante,” the forum program said.
Sneider is a film reporter based in Los Angeles. He works for TheWrap,” and he co-hosts the Meet the Movie Press podcast on the Schmoes Know Network.
The speakers presented as a panel that also included Montana Film Commissioner Deny Staggs. Sneider served as the moderator.
Police reported Monday that no arrests have been made in the case of the “My Little Pony” graffiti incident.
Garages and fences, and a concrete wall were defaced with references to the popular children’s program and line of toys. The words “Pinky Pie,” “Jade,” “MLP” and “My Little Pony,” among others were painted on surfaces at least five locations.
The graffiti appeared in the Hawthorne School area, police said.
The “F” word was also depicted, but only as an “f” with the appropriated number of “x’s” following.
Undersheriff George Skuletich asked jokingly that the graffiti artists not be referred to as the “My Little Pony gang,” a request that might not be possible to honor if the vandals ride again.
