  •   The annual meeting of the Beartooth Electric Cooperative’s (BEC) was held Saturday, Sept. 28, at Yellowstone Dog Sports in Roberts. President Roxy Melton came out strong on BEC’s 75th anniversary. “The co-op returns to the tradition of membership control. We don’t believe that providing our own energy is necessary....
