Spencer provide that the so called restricted district of this city must remain closed and the two houses involved are not to be opened or used for any purpose within a year.

November 1958
Reservoir Fish Poisoned. Truckloads of rough fish to be used for fertilizer and mink feed have been gathered from Cooney Reservoir last week to improve your fishing. Montana Fish and Game poisoned the water in the reservoir and tributary streams with chemicals to kill lake fish, many of which sank to the bottom. They are not toxic to humans. They plan to plant half million rainbow trout next spring and more in the tributaries from the Bluewater Hatchery near Fromberg. Five years ago there was good fishing but the roughy returned. However, a canal from East Rosebud will permit the suckers to get to the reservoir. The biggest hazard is fishermen who use minnows. If they refrain, it will promote a year of good fishing.
Roman Theater: “Quantrill’s Raiders” starring Steve Cochran and Diane Brewster. “Light in the Forest” starring Fess Parker, Jessica Tandy, Wendell Corey and Joanne Drew.
