Today we’re taking a look at housing prices in Montana. In our last story, we reported on how tariffs on Canadian and Chinese building supplies are driving up prices for new homes in Montana.

But there appears to be some downward pressure on prices for existing homes.

“Well, so things are starting to change,” says Brint Wahlberg, of the Missoula Organization of Realtors.

Wahlberg says the local median sales price is still holding strong at close to $290,000.

Young people growing up queer in Montana say one of the hardest parts is how truly alone it can feel to be different under the big sky.

For the last seven months, a group of mostly high school students in the Flathead Valley has been trying to change that. They call themselves the Flathead LGBTQ Alliance, and are hosting Ally Night Thursday in Whitefish. The goal is to raise community awareness while providing support and a safe place for kids who are trying to figure themselves out.

Flathead County went big for Republicans two years ago, voting red for every statewide and federal office. But Flathead Democrats are pushing for a blue wave from local races to Montana’s lone U.S. House seat. This afternoon we sent Nicky Ouellet to hear what voters in the Flathead are thinking on election day.

Kalispell Clergy Plan Post-Election 'Vigil For Restoration'

As divisive campaign rhetoric reaches fever-pitch on election day, a group of clergy in Kalispell is trying to reunite their communities by hosting a pair of interfaith vigils Wednesday.

The Post-Election Vigil for Restoration was borne out of what First Presbyterian Church Community Pastor Miriam Mauritzen calls a loss of love of neighbor.
