"Even this late in the recruiting process our coaches have contacted outstanding student athletes that feel Carroll College is a great fit for them. The three high school athletes from the state of Montana are going to be difference-makers in our program. We are very excited to have Brady as a running back in our program. To find someone of his caliber this late is amazing. He has a great future here and will benefit from being around Dustin Rinker our senior running back this fall," Carroll College head coach Mike Van Diest said.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
