    Is your house haunted?, Give us a call, we want to hear all about it.

    Halloween or Hallowe’en (a contraction of All Hallows‘ Evening),[5] also known as Allhalloween,[6] All Hallows’ Eve,[7]or All Saints’ Eve,[8] is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christianfeast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide,[9] the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.[10][11]

    It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelicfestival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church.[1][7][12][13][14][15] Some believe, however, that Halloween began solely as a Christian holiday, separate from ancient festivals like Samhain.[1][16][17][18][19]

    Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising), attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfiresapple bobbingdivination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows’ Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular,[20][21][22] although elsewhere it is a more commercial and secular celebration.[23][24][25] Some Christians historically abstained from meat on All Hallows’ Eve, a tradition reflected in the eating of certain vegetarian foods on this vigil day, including applespotato pancakes, and soul cakes.[26][27][28][29]

    James Dean--Candidate For U.S. Senate from Havre, Montana.

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM

     A few bullet points for the James Dean Campaign.
    –This whole election is about which candidate can solve problems. D.C. doesn’t know how to solve problems, so we must take personal responsibility to step up, solve problems, and fix the system.
    –On the issues, I am pro gun and pro life.
    –I have a specific plan to fundamentally reform our financial system, especially banking. Nobody else how to fix the financial system. I am in close alignment with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Occupy Wall Street on the hazards of a corrupt and broken banking system.
    –I draw attention to the fact that half of Tester’s top contributors are banks and financial institutions he regulates as a member of the Senate banking committee. If Montana allows Tester’s millions of out of state campaign dollars to sway their vote, Montana will sacrifice its sovereignty to the New York banking cartel.
    –I have a specific plan to fix the insurance system, which is ruining our medical system. By making insurance and money work better, medical system will stop making people sick and cost much less.
    –Our nation is bankrupt, and we risk a breakup of the United States and war. Every taxpayer owes $900,000 in unfunded liabilities, which is their personal bill to pay interest and taxes on $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and $20 trillion in federal debt. This means that raising or lowering taxes or raising or lowering spending cannot grow the economy enough to stave off bankruptcy. Both parties are ideologically bankrupt. The economists like Milton Friedman that conservatives look to didn’t have the answers, but I do.
    –I have designed a new economic system to create a “hypergrowing economy” that grows at 50-100% every year. My team and I had to solve a tremendous number of problems to make it simple and cheap enough to implement. Nothing less will work.
    –My wife is running a vigorous campaign against Jon Tester as a Democrat. We want the entire electorate of Montana to vote for one of us so that we can go to Congress with a supermajority. We can solve problems in ways neither party has a grid for. Our problem-solving platform is inherently bipartisan.
    –On abortion, we want to build a system that completely takes care of every expectant mother’s needs so that she has the freedom in her circumstances to choose life.

    REAL Montana--Builds a Network of Informed and Engaged Leaders in the Natural Resources Industries

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    2017.11.03
    Mission
    REAL Montana builds a network of informed and engaged leaders to advance the natural resource industries in Montana.
    Program
    The program is a two-year cycle of classes, tours, networking opportunities, and travel designed to heighten knowledge and enhance skills of emerging leaders.  Participants analyze complex issues associated with agriculture and natural resources while receiving intensive leadership training and exposure to a wide range of experiences and viewpoints.
    Participants
    Classes consist of up to 20 participants competitively selected to represent a wide variety of natural resource industries across the state.  REAL Montana seeks diversity in all aspects of class structure, including geography, gender, and industry sectors.  The target audience is adults who earn a substantial percentage of their livelihoods from Montana natural resources who demonstrate the willingness and aptitude for long-term leadership in their respective industries.

    • Dave Phillips – Montana State University Extension (retired)
    • Lola Raska – Montana Grain Growers Association
    • John Youngberg – Montana Farm Bureau Federation
    Setup
    The program features eight in-state seminars held in rotating locations across Montana. In Year One, participants also travel to Washington D.C. for a 5-7 day national seminar. Year Two includes a 10-day international trip. Each in-state seminar typically runs from Thursday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.
    Seminar Topics 
    Seminars are a mix of leadership training, educational tours, in- and out-of-state travel, and networking opportunities.  Program content includes agriculture institutions and agencies, natural resource development, public speaking/media, economics, policy, international trade, urban/rural relationships, water issues, transportation, labor and production costs, entrepreneurship, and other current industry topics.

    Cost
    Each participant is responsible for a $3,000 tuition fee, which covers tours, educational materials, double occupancy lodging, meals, and out-of-state airfare. The tuition fee accounts for approximately 20% of the total cost of the program, the majority of which is made possible through the generous contributions of our sponsors.  Please visit our SPONSOR PAGE for a list of program supporters.

    Participants are responsible for costs associated with transportation to and from each in-state seminar and departure locations for out-of-state seminars.

    Organizational Structure
    REAL Montana is funded through a partnership with Montana State University Extension and private industry.  Oversight is provided by an advisory board of industry leaders.
