School is just around the corner. While summer has been fun, we all knew it had to come to an end eventually. We hope all of the kids out there enjoyed the hot days in the sun, learned a few new sports, slept in and stayed up late. But it's not all bad news for returning students. This is your chance to show up on the first day with the sharpest pencils, brightest markers, and the coolest lunch box! We also have  a complete list of all Bozeman Elementary and Middle school School Supply lists.

Bozeman TV Furniture Appliance

One of my favorite billboards in town is the one in the Bozeman TV and Furniture and Appliance parking lot. It seems to change on a weekly basis with advertisements for deals on tv's, refrigerators, furniture and everything else. It's a miracle I don't venture inside to spend my paycheck more often. Keep a look out for this billboard come back-to-school time for deals that you won't be able to resist.
