[he family of you for your kind expression ofs of Louise Thornton Wilkison Stockman Bank recently committed to building a new full-service bank at 301 W. Hony Street at the northwest corner of Holly and Third Avenue NW in Sidney. Stockman purchased this slightly over three acre parcel from Don and Roger Byer in October 2013. Ground breaking on a new three-story build- ifig is set for mid-2015. The anticipated completion date is in 2016. Plans are still in the developmental stages for the new state-of-the-art banking facil- ity that follows the design of other Stockman Bank buildings across Montana. The bank will be equipped with a 24 hour ATM, night drop, and a spacious multi-lane drive-up that will be large enough to pull a trailer through to bet- ter serve our area farmers, ranchers and trades people. The main entry will be all glass with high ceilings allowing for the second floor atrium to overlook the lobby. More importantly, this new location will provide adequate parking for customers, 'employees and guests. "Stockman has been committed to the MonDak area for decades, and we're excited to further our commit- ment by building a larger facility to continue serving the financial needs of our growing community," Garth Kal- levig, president of Stockman Bank Sid- ney, said. "With the extensive growth in agriculture, medical, professional, retail and energy production in our area, we feel this expansion is another example of our continual commitment to Richland County and the surround- ing areas." In addition to the new banking facil- ity, Stockman plans to keep its existing drive-up location at 120 2nd Street SW to conveniently serve its customers in central downtown Sidney. At this time, Stockman Bank will stay in its main bank on the corner of Main Street and Central Avenue until the new facility is open. Stockman will then assess its needs and options at that time, and de- cide what to do with its existing main bank building. Stockman Bank is Montana's largest privately held family owned bank. Stockman is committed to the MonDak area and looks forward to continuing the community banking principles they were founded upon over 60 years ago. The Montana Wildlife Federation recognized two conservation partners and one individual with its annual awards during the group's 79th an- nual convention last weekend in Helena. The awards were given to recognize the groups and individual who made the biggest contribution over the past year to promoting the federation's mission of abundant wildlife, healthy habitat and public hunting and angling opportunity to enjoy those public resources. The Conservation Organization of the Year award went to the Montana Sportsmen's Alliance, a relatively new organization exhibiting out- standing conservation values, energy and communication tools to make a difference on many fronts. The group's first real test came during the 2013 Montana Legislature, where they had an effective influence on nearly every critically important bill affect- ing wildlife, habitat and public access. The Public Land and Water Access Association, PLWA, was the recipient of the Affiliate of the Year Award. Its history is one involving many actions that have provided and protected the public's rights to access and enjoy many of Montana's amazingly valu- able and diverse public lands and waters. In 2014 their efforts, once again supported by the Goetz Law Firm, ~ overcame efforts by a private land owner to negate access to streams and rivers at bridges -- which PLWA helped secure in 2009. The landowner also worked to overturn entirely our state's pro-public stream access law, which PLWA also protected. Chuck Hunt, Flathead Wildlife Inc., received the Fred Carver Sportsman of the Year Award for his outstand- ing contributions to the promotion of club activities and sportsmen's interests. His leadership and continuing on- the-ground efforts to recruit and men- tor youth hunters and anglers and to promote ethical behavior on the part of all recreationists have been outstanding. % ...... ~i~i~:: 181 iiiiiiiiiiil ! \ Stk# 3095 !iii!i!!i!i!!i!i! !iiiiii !iii!i!ii!i!i!!i! i~i~~ 2013 F150 CC Tuscany White stk# 3058 Retail 74,177 invoice Max Demo Discount 6,500 ECF Disc 1,500 Retail 54,345 2013 F250 CC: Lariat Pale Ad(L stk# 3020 F Retail 47,460 2013 Flex Limited Invoice 44,756 Ruby Red Ford Final Pay 5,500 stk# 3155 ECF Disc 1,500 37,756 Retail 70,487 2013 F150 CC Invoice 61,664 Tuscany Black OPS Max Ford Rebate 4,500 stk# 3041 ECF Disc 1,500 2013 Flex SEL AWD Ginger Ale stk# 3044 2013 F350 S/; Lariat Green G| stk# 3079 I Retail Invoice Ford Final Pay ECF Disc Retail 40,780 38,474 5,500 1,500 31,474 Rebates based on 59270 Zip code.
