Greg Harris proves to have 'one tough noggin'
Greg Harris likes to pass himself off as perhaps the dirtiest player in Grizzly football history. Whether he was, or whether he wasn’t, Harris is most proud that he was a Grizzly, and that he has sons following in his footsteps in more ways than one. It was easy for him to come up with names for the security and other businesses he has owned and operated since shortly after his football career ended with a brief shot in the pros.
You guessed it: the main one is Grizzly Security Armored Express, Inc., a business he started in his home town of Kalispell that has since expanded into Missoula, Helena and Butte. He also has a statewide alarm company, a shredding company called Grizzly ShredEx, and a sign company called Grizzly Xtreme Graphics.

Kalispell physician helps pioneer field of sleep medicine
The one thing we need most in life seems so easy to get: sleep. But while sleep may be easy to come by for some people, for millions of others it’s the tonic that is completely elusive.

Jack and Ann Hirschy: a love story on a Montana ranch
When Ann Hirschy moved up over the pass from Salmon, Idaho, to the Big Hole Valley, she fell in love with the place and never left.
Of course, it helped that she fell in love with one Jack Hirschy, a man who would become one of the largest cattle ranchers in the Big Hole, a high-mountain valley in the southwest corner of Montana. It's a place where living is tough, summers are short but life is good if you take it all in stride. And that's exactly what Ann and Jack Hirschy have done for the last 58 years, taking the rough and tumble cattle business in stride and building up on the cattle trade that Jack's grandparents began in the Big Hole in 1894.
