Lincoln County Law Enforcement Claims 4th Consecutive Title

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Officer, John Davis, found himself caught in a pickle and surrounded by Libby Volunteer Fire
Department members between 2nd and 3rd base on the diamond during the 2021 Guns & Hoses Softball Game held at Lee
Ghering Field this past Thursday. After a series of about-face shuffles, he went in for the slide and found himself safe at the plate!

LCSO would go on to take the traveling trophy for the 4th consecutive time and now remain undefeated in the annual series. LVFD left the field focused and ready to see what 2022 might bring to the plate in support of Lincoln County Unite for Youth.

Meet Sharky and Pablo of Troy

“These guys don’t mind chilling out when needed, but they love to get out and stay active,” shared Peter Leusch of his four-legged family members, Sharky and Pablo. “They are great at digging up gophers
outside of the garden, chasing squirrels and bears out of the orchard, and catching mice and pack rats. Their favorite times are on the trail or
swimming in the Yaak river on a hot day.”
