Public school activities canceled — Due to the ice and snow over the weekend, all public schools in Miles City were closed today, but will reopen tomorrow according to Keith Campbell, Superintendent of the Miles City Unified School District. Regular classes, activities and parent teacher conferences have been canceled. The district will have more time to plow and apply sand to melt the ice glaze that covered Miles City after Friday’s freezing rain. Classes and regular activities are scheduled to resume Tuesday. 

Making the most of a contribution plan – Many American workers are not getting the full benefits of their 401K or 403b retirement plans at work and are not taking advantage of the “free money” that is offered to them. The next Solid Finance session will help workers understand the benefits available. This session, titled Making the Most of Your Employer Defined Contribution Plan, will be taught by Montana State University Extension’s Joel Schumacher at the Miles City Public Library, 1 S. 10th St. on Wednesday at 12:05 p.m. It is the 12th session in the 2017-2018 Solid Finance series.
