BEST OF LIBBY

Attractions in Libby, Montana BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LIBBY, MONTANA AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Kootenai Falls Thirteen miles west of Libby, Kootenai Falls occurs at the point that the Kootenai River dramatically loses 300 feet in elevation over the course of a few hundred yards. The Falls are popular with visitors, hikers and kayakers willing to brave the falls and rapids. Yaak Falls West of Libby is the Yaak valley, certainly one of the most scenic drives in an already pristine area. The 98mile drive through the Yaak is alone worth the effort, even if it weren’t punctuated by the Yaak Falls. The Falls are on Yaak River Road just north of its junction with US Highway 2. Visitors can climb down to the Falls and explore the area where the Yaak River begins its tumble into the Kootenai River. Ski Turner Mountain Located 22 miles north of Libby, Montana, Turner Mountain is an ideal spot for skiing, with the excellent snow conditions, wide-open slopes, and fabulous scenery. Turner Mountain boasts trails and slopes designed to suit every skier, as well as many miles of ski terrain that makes every descent of the mountain an exciting satisfying, thrilling experience. Ross Creek Cedars Scenic Area was preserved in 1960 when 100 acres was set aside for the purpose. The route to the cedar grove follows State Highway 56 south of Bull Lake, and then continues for four miles west into the mountains.

Libby Sports Center We carry a full line of sporting goods, shoes and clothes. libbysportscenter@frontiernet.net

Heritage Museum The Heritage Museum, located on Highway 2 just south of Libby, has displays on local area history and wildlife exhibits. The Museum is a 12-sided log structure, 130 feet in diameter, completed and manned entirely by volunteers. Exhibits include information about the Kootenai Indians as well as early trappers, lumbermen, women, and miners who came to the area. Many examples of local wildlife can also be found on display in the Museum, including a silver-tipped grizzly bear, bald eagles, deer and many others. Libby Dam and Lake Koocanusa Libby Dam spans the Kootenai River 17 miles upstream from town. The Dam is 422 feet tall and 3,055 feet long and forms Lake Koocanusa in its wake: 90 miles long with a maximum depth of 370 feet. The Libby Dam offers tours of the Dam and hosts a museum of Dam and area history. Lake Koocanusa is also a popular recreational spot for boating, fishing, and hiking.

LOCAL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Rawlings Community Counseling MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING

R

awlings Community Counseling specializes in mental health counseling and addictions treatment. They started with a small group of therapists working independently. Executive Director and practicing counselor Treva Rawlings says, “We realized that we are stronger together and our community would greatly benefit from our teamwork.” The result has been four like-minded professionals coming together with a drive to assist their community. “We were aware of a lack of services in Boundary County and felt committed to filling that need,” says Rawlings. So in the fall they rented space and began their journey creating Rawlings Community Counseling. RCC provides Mental Health Counseling for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.Addictions

services provide adolescent and adult outpatient and intensive outpatient Addictions Treatment. To sweeten the deal, RCC also has two therapists who are trained in EMDR, a well-known and highly respected trauma treatment in the industry. “It feels good to know that I am working with a team who brings a combined 50 years experience in the helping industry,” says Adam Kusler, the RCC Treatment Manager. “The varied backgrounds and range of expertise is often hard to find in one agency.” Coming Soon RCC will be accepting Medicaid insurance and BPA funding in the very near future. Enrollment for all services is currently open. Call today for more information and appointment.

ACTIVITIES AND FUN

LATE FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL

EARTH SCIENCE CLASS

The little boy was late for Sunday school and the superintendent, seeing him slip in, detained him and asked him the reason. The boy shuffled his feet uncertainly for a moment, then blurted out, “I started out to go fishing instead, but my dad wouldn’t let me.”

The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading. After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude...?”

The superintendent beamed broadly. “A wise father,” he said. “He was quite right not to let you go fishing on a Sunday. Did he explain why?” The little boy nodded. “Oh, yes sir. He said there wasn’t enough bait for the two of us.”

PET BILLS While waiting at the veterinarian’s office, I overheard two women chatting about their dogs. “What’s your dog’s name?” asked the first woman. “Well, we used to call her Pork Chop,” answered the second lady. “But after the vet bills we’ve had for her, we now call her Filet Mignon.”

DOG FIGHT A man walks into a bar one day and asks, “Does anyone here own that rottweiler outside?” “Yeah, I do!” a biker says, standing up. “What about it?” “Well, I think my chihuahua just killed him...” “What are you talkin’ about?!” the biker says, disbelievingly. “How could your little runt kill my rottweiler?”

After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”

ILLEGAL TURN A man, in a hurry taking his eight-year-old son to school, made a turn at a red light where it was prohibited. “Uh-oh, I just made an illegal turn!” the man said. “Aw, Dad, it’s okay,” the son said. “The police car right behind us did the same thing.”

TWO ROACHES Two roaches were munching on garbage in an alley when one engages a discussion about a new restaurant. “I was in that new restaurant across the street,” said one. “It’s so clean! The kitchen is spotless, and the floors are gleaming white. There is no dirt anywhere--it’s so sanitary that the whole place shines.” “Please,” said the other roach frowning. “Not while I’m eating!”

SUDOKU

“Well, it seems he got stuck in your dog’s throat!”
