An Army Ranger friend of mine and his wife were out at the Helsinki in Butte for the big celebrations that always start the night before St. Patrick's Day and they sent me a note saying, "Butte is back! Fantastic to see all these people out."
Father Haffey: "Simply a reminder to trust in God more and to live our lives more as we think the Lord wants us to live it.

A new documentary on Disney+ called "Stuntman" about Robert Braun is a tribute to Butte's own Robert "Evel" Knievel. The documentary discusses the famous attempt to jump the Snake River in Idaho back in September of 1974.
