NFLA Dues are Due Before April 1st

By | February 21, 2018

Sondreson HallChris Heitz, Treasurer of the North Fork Landowners Association, has sent out a note reminding folks that the NFLA dues are due before April 1st if you want to receive the Spring Newsletter by mail. Read all about what you’ll get if you sign up early.

The NFLA was founded “to promote the general welfare of the community of the upper valley of the North Fork of the Flathead River… [and to] pursue the interests of all North Fork landowners, regardless of permanent residence, and encourage and facilitate their participation in association activities.” If you’re a North Fork landowner, we highly recommend that you check out their website and join today!

Thoughts on the Interlocal

Well, we’re trying to figure out how to post information from the Hungry Horse News legally on NFNews. The Hungry Horse News now requires a subscription to view articles on line. The subscription that we have takes us to their news archive which allows us to post articles publicly on Facebook. Why use MagoGuide? That’s our public Facebook page which is open to everyone. So in theory you should be able to click on the post below to get to Larry’s article. You should need neither a Facebook account nor a HHN subscription (which seems strange to me).

Someone please let us know if it doesn’t work!

The Flathead Beacon reports that scrolling through the Instagram account managed by U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, a conservative Republican from Bozeman, it’s clear he’s hewed a well-established groove in the firmament of Western outdoors pursuits… Daines’ views on public-land access have led him to call for opening up nearly 450,000 acres of federally protected parcels — currently managed by the U.S. Forest Service as wilderness study areas — to a suite of new uses, including logging, grazing and motorized use.
