With the rash of home invasions in the last few weeks we think it’s great that the magic city is mobilizing. Last week over 600 women attended a personal safety and self-defense course that was put on by the Billings Police Department and the Montana State University Billings Police Department.

The women were shown basic self -defense techniques that are designed to keep them safe from larger, stronger attackers.  It’s good that someone is giving women a fighting chance against these losers out there.

On a more serious note, make sure your home is as safe as possible…check those doors and windows before turning in at night. Maybe get a big mean dog – or a dog that looks big and mean. Just be careful out there…the world isn’t as nice as it once was.
