The national office that audits the EPA is in Anaconda this week holding a listening session about the Superfund cleanup there.

Superfund is a priority for the EPA, according to the new chief of EPA Region 8. Montana Public Radio's Nora Saks sat down with him during his first visit to Butte last month to find out more about his priorities.

The national office that investigates the EPA wants to hear what people in Anaconda think about the Superfund cleanup there.

The independent Office of the Inspector General (OIG) looks for fraud, waste and abuse in the Environmental Protection Agency. It also evaluates EPA’s programs, like Superfund, and makes recommendations on how they could be improved.

Candidates for statewide office in Montana’s 2020 election raised more than $1.4 million since the start of the year, most of that coming over the last three months. Candidates were required to file campaign finance reports by Friday.

Most of the early money coming in is taking sides in the contested Republican primary for governor.

“Something Holy to Say,” a solo show of Gregory Wilhelmi will be on display for the month of July at Coila Evans Gallery, 119 Main St. in Roundup. In this exhibition, Wilhelmi explores "a world of spirituality obscured, faith smudged, and the struggle to walk again in light," according to the artist's statement.

Wilhelmi lives south of Roundup on Halfbreed Creek with his wife and business partner, Cheryl, in a historic log cabin, circa 1893, with a studio on the property. This show is the most personal he's ever done, described gallery owner Coila Evans, and features images culled from his life in Roundup, as well as works spanning his career as an artist.

Billings Clinic announced Wednesday it hired Bozeman-based Martel Construction to build phase one of its new medical campus in Bozeman.

Charles Bowers takes long, quick strides down a worn, dirt path and stops in front of a tall thicket of bushes. He lifts a hand to signal that he's spied something.

He's leading me on a tour of camps made by homeless people in wooded corners of Fayette County, Kentucky, and there, slightly up the hill, is a patch of blue. A tent.

He keeps his voice low to avoid startling those inside.
