If approved, it would increase residential electric cus- tomers&apos; monthly bill by an aver- age of about $7.50. Montana-Dakota's last rate increase went into effect in January 2004 when the PSC granted a 1.2-percent increase. The previous rate increase was in 1987. The main reasons for the increase request are to recover the cost of increased investment in electric facilities, loss of wholesale sales margins and recovery of costs associated with all facets of the company's electric generation, according to MDU. • Boys and girls varsity track meet, Beach Invitational, 2 p.m., April 29, Beach. ..

(Courtesy Photo) Boy donates 10- year-old ponytail By Richard Volesky Editor/Writer WILLISTON - Donating a pony- tail to Lockg of Love isn't entirely unusual, but in one recent case the circumstances were considerably more remarkable. Locks of Love is a public non- profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvan- taged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. The organiza- tion meets the need by using donat- ed hair to create hair prosthetics. The hairpieces can help restore con- fidence and self-esteem for the chil- dren who use them. Most of the donors are girls or women only because they're the ones who grow lheir hair long enough so'that it can be donated. But Matthew Finneman, 10, of Williston recently became a hair donor ........ , * He is the son of Golva native Ron Finneman, and his wife, Faith, Ponytail (Continued on Page 8) e Matthew Finneman shows a citizenship certificate that he received from his school in Williston.

Baker, Mont., man chosen by NFL team recipient of the Tony Barbour Award, which is presented to the UM player who "best exemplifies Grizzly ;football." A four-year letterman and two- year starter, Schillinger never missed a game in his career, playing in 57 in a row, and starting in 31 straight as a junior and senior. He ended his career ranked 12th (tied with four players) in school history with 10 interceptions and is 20th in career .tackles with 257. Schillinger now joins former Montana Griz standout Kroy Biermann, from Hardin, Mont., who has seen considerable action with the Falcons the past two seasons. "I talked to the GM and head Shann Schillinger coach earlier today, and they asked me if I wanted to be a part of their team," Schillinger said via a phone interview Saturday after- noon after the draft. "I told them I was very excited to get the oppor- tunity. I know that I have got a lot of hard work ahead of me, but I also have a chance to play in the NFL, which is a long-time goal and dream for me. It's neat to be on the same team with Kroy," Schillinger said. "Coach (former UM mentor Bobby) Hauck just called me to congratulate me, and he said who would had ever thought that two former Grizzly football players from Baker and Hardin would be playing on the same NFL team," said Schillinger. "I am sure that Kroy's being so successful there helped me to get this chance. I am excited, but I am also happy it is over with. It's a relief not to be waiting around for that call any- more." Schillinger is to travel to Atlanta for a three-day mini-camp begin- ning on May 6.
