Later he worked with sheep shearing crews. Keeping up with his own farming interests, he also ran a threshing machine during the 1890's. On Oct. 16, 1894, he was united in marriage with Hannah E. Wills. They had at least four sons. Walter Kemmis was an active leader in local, county and state affairs. He began a long career in the Montana State Leislature in 1912. He was active in the Methodist church in Glendive and transferred his membership to the Methodist church in Sidney as a charter member and received his "Local Preach- ers License" in 1893. He was later ordained a "local deacon" at the Methodist conference in Bozeman in 1902. He remained active in church during his entire life. Walter Kemmis became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution on June 14, 1933.

Residents should be aware of scares involving utility companies The Office of Consumer Protection at the Montana Department of Justice wants to alert you to a scam involving utility companies which is targeting mainly businesses. It works like this: The person receiving the call :will be told by the person on the phone, who claims to be from their utility company, that they're about to cut off electricity services to their business. The caller ID may look like a legitimate local number, but more often than not this number is "spoofed." Scammers can use computers/internet to make it look like they're calling from one place, when they're actually some- place else ............. The caller wll say, "I can stop this, but you need to pay here right, right now on the phone." Sometimes, the scammers will ask people to use a GreenDot money card, Western Union wire transfer, or prepaid gift card. Scammers are using reloadable debit cards, gift cards, and sometimes even PayPal. These methods al- low them to get your money in a way. that's extremely difficult to recover. What to do: get a call, email, text, or even a visit from someone telling you to make a payment via GreenDot, PayPal, Western Union, or gift card, it's most likely a scam. Call your util- ity company on the phone number that appears on your bill to confirm you are current on payments. Next steps: Call your local police department, or the Montana Department of Justice's Office of Con- sumer Protection at 800-481- 6896.
