Helena Sport Facility
The will be moving into the Loading Dock South building and are super excited about it! They are expanding into more than just a gym but will become a full sports facility called No Limits Sports Academy!

Here's what Blake Matthews shares, "With the popularity of sports in Helena I noticed there wasn't anything out there for the kids, well now there is. I'm putting in a full basketball court along with about 7,000sqft turf field that has several batting cages. I really hope we can be a great provider for all the kids to stay local and continue to better themselves in their sports. Anyway just wanted to share with you because I'm so exciting about all the new possibilities! Go Huskies"!

Blake said, "they have my batting cages up in another two weeks. Turf is going in by the end of this week. CrossFit classes are already being ran. The basketball floor should be in around 6 more weeks. The construction progress has taken longer than I expected, but I suppose that's a normal thing. People are welcome to come by any time to check us out. I've been doing lots of work to the outside of the building as well trying to make it more inviting. Once it's all done it will truly be an amazing place for the community"!
Cumberland to Louisiana 
Philicia Danner shared, "What an awesome community we live in. From Helena Cumberland Presbyterian Church, I would like to thank those of you who donated items, money and offered prayers as we traveled to Louisiana yesterday to drop off relief items for those affected by the flooding. As a direct result of your giving, River Community Church in Prairieville will now be able to open a pantry for the community and specifically for those who have lost everything. Please continue to pray for these people as it will be a long time before they recover. Special thanks to The School for Amazing Kids, Stick and strum Academy, Frios and Sun and C's for serving as drop off locations".

Hit and Run
Graham Brooks wrote an article  that the grand jury upheld charges involving a fatal hit and run in Helena. A 28 year Bessemer man was also charged for manslaughter, unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries on May 3". Source
