Bigfork Beagle, our new local newspaper

By Catherine Haug, Oct 24, 2016

For those of us who have missed our old weekly newspaper, you will be glad to know that “the Bigfork Beagle has landed.” Stacks of them – in print – are available for the taking at various restaurants and other businesses in the Bigfork area. They are also online at, and on Facebook. Michelle and Vince Lovato are the publishers.

The inaugural issue features Bigfork school’s sports and other news, and a few other articles of interest. They welcome:

  • Letters to the editor;
  • “Tips on news and photo ops, calendar items, pictures from locals as they tour the world or our back yard;”
  • “Student submissions that can go directly into the newspaper. Simple stuff about cool class projects, fields trips or a pie-eating contest;”
  • Classifieds and events;
  • Local advertisements are welcomed and essential.

Please give the new local paper your support, and spread the word.

It will not be a weekly paper; rather they will print “9 issues a year,  and support that with social media and our website and email campaign.” Planned publication dates for 2016-2017 are:
