Blue Ribbon Perspective
Bernice Ende calls Eureka "a blue ribbon town". Bernice has been the Lady Long Rider since 2005 when she set out on her first trip from Trego, Montana to Edgewood, New Mexico. She did the trip with a horse and a dog and a whole lot of courage. And she liked it. I mean there aren't many of us who could imagine riding a horse thousands of miles, not knowing where you might be spending the night or what the next day would bring.
How Eureka's Jesse Phillips accidentally started up a band called St. Paul and the Broken Bones
Soul on fire
Contributed by Erika Fredrickson of The Missoula Independent
When I finally get ahold of Jesse Phillips, the bassist for St. Paul and the Broken Bones, he and the band are stranded in Texas. That morning, they awakened to a fire alarm and billowing smoke in their tour bus. "It was an electrical fire or some kind of meltdown," Phillips says. "So, we're marooned at this Motel 6 in Wichita Falls until a new bus gets here from Nashville to pick us up and carry us on our way."
