New bike rack installed at Libby Visitor’s Center
Submitted by Libby Area Chamber of Commerce
In 2019, the Libby Area Chamber of Commerce had recognized that the increased amount of bicycle
traffic to the Libby Chamber and Visitor Information Center was setting a demand for a bike rack to be
installed. At that time, the Chamber decided to collaborate with local metal artist Todd Berget, the Libby
Public Schools Metal Shop, and Montana Machine & Fabrication to design and build a bike rack that
represented Libby in a unique and creative way.
The bike rack, depicting the Cabinet Mountain range, was installed outside the Visitor Information Center on Tuesday, June 1, by the Libby High School Drafting and Welding students.
The Libby Chamber Staff & Board of Directors would like to thank everyone who was a part of the
completion of this project: design by Todd Berget, fabrication by Montana Machine & Fabrication, hand-painting by Patty Rambo, and a special thank you to John Love and the Libby High School Drafting and
Welding Class for the final welding and installation!

Ankle Brachial testing equipment upgraded at CPMC
Cabinet Peaks Medical Center of Libby
Libby, MT – Many people in our community
suffer from swollen and painful legs or arms.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a common
circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries
reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop PAD, your legs or arms do not get enough blood to keep up with demand. This lack of blood flow can cause pain, also known as claudication. Claudication varies widely, from mild discomfort to debilitating pain. Severe cases will disrupt everyday living.
If diagnosed with PAD, your provider may recommend the Ankle Brachial Testing (ABI). The test is a quick, noninvasive way to check for PAD. An ABI test compares the blood pressure measured at your ankle with the blood pressure measured at your arm. A low ankle-brachial number can indicate narrowing or blockage of the arteries in your limbs.
Cabinet Peaks Medical Center has been providing ABI for many years. Recently, the equipment has been upgraded and has the capability to perform ABI
segmentals and ABI stress tests. Physicians can
more precisely determine the degree and location
of claudication. These tests can determine if the
condition is a result of clots that may not be detected by other methods, allowing providers to implement treatment plans or surgery that will effectively
resolve the problem.
“This is important due to the fact that when it is difficult or painful to get up and walk around, patients can develop additional health issues,” stated Alan
Carmignani, CPMC Cardiopulmonary Manager.
“Also, when clots are present there is always a
risk of the clot moving or breaking off pieces that can go to the heart, lungs, or brain and possibly become fatal.
As always, we are excited to be offering these lifesaving tests to our patients.”
