Tuesday, September 3—


LEDGER, Mont. (AP) – The remains of the third person killed in a head-on collision between two Burlington Northern freight trains was found, ending an intense search that began near here last Friday evening. In all, three men were killed, five others injured, nine locomotives destroyed and 31 freight cars and their loads derailed in what a federal investigator termed one of the nation’s worst train wrecks of the year. The three men killed were identified as Richard A. Strissel, 23, James Henderson, 48, and Michael Holst, 30, of Great Falls.

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) – A top AFL-CIO official said that Montana workers will have to be “more flexible than past generations” and ready for changes in industry and technology. Don Judge, executive secretary of the Montana Labor Union, urged Montanans to read newspapers and magazines, watch television, and listen to the radio to become more aware of what is going on around them and then “do something about it.”


WASHINGTON (AP) – National Cancer Institute researchers reported that dogs whose owners use a herbicide containing 2,4-D have up to twice the risk of developing lymphatic cancer.


Saturday, September 7—


GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) – Burlington Northern Railroad’s lack of a dispatch center in Montana and failure to install “block signal devices” ma have played a role in last week’s fatal train collision, a union official said. James T. Mular, chairman of the Montana joint Rail-Labor Legislative Council said Thursday that BN has reduced its dispatcher personnel “in its effort to increase stockholder dividends.” Only one dispatcher per shift handles all BN branch-line operations in Montana, Idaho and Washington, he said.



HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Skiers on Montana’s ski slopes last winter were a $68 million boon to the economy and the state’s tourism office is gearing up for
a new winter advertising campaign aimed at breaking that record.

*** The Associated Press reported that Uncle Sam will spend $1.3 million next year to build a new airport in Ekalaka,

WHITEFISH, Mont. (AP) – Gov. Stan
Stephens announced that Burlington Northern has agreed to pay more than $200,000 in fines and upgrade its tracks in connection with the 1989 Whitefish Lake oil spill. On July 31, 1989, a BN train derailed along
Whitefish Lake, spilling 12,000 gallons of diesel onto the shore and into the lake. The site continues to leak oil and
a sea curtain will remain in place at least through next spring. Under the agreement, BN will pay the state’s cleanup, response and enforcement costs of $108,360.

at the Montana State Prison Maximum Security Unit in Deer Lodge. Prison
officials said the dead were all killed
by fellow inmates. Five guards who
had been taken hostage by maximum-security inmates were safely freed

team retook the building in a barrage
of tear gas.
