RECOGNIZING BAKER FURNITURE
∑ Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this
week, I have the distinct honor of recognizing
a multigeneration cornerstone
of the community in Fallon County.
Baker Furniture has served the people
of eastern Montana for over eight decades.
Through the years, the team at
Baker Furniture has skillfully navigated
changes in consumer tastes and a
shifting business climate in order to
provide quality furniture and appliances
for the folks in Baker.
Baker Furniture initially began operations
on Main Street in 1936, by the
original proprietor, Leif Holmlund.
Leif’s understudy in the furniture industry,
Army veteran Orville Stevens,
would eventually take the reins of the
enterprise in the 1960s. Under Orville’s
guidance, the business flourished.
Orville’s sons, Tom and Dave, also
pitched in to help make the business a
success.
Tom and Dave went on to assume the
primary duties for the business in the
late 1990s. After a life that included
service to his Nation, raising a family,
and operating a successful business,
Orville passed away in 2009. Since his
passing, the business that Orville developed
has continued to thrive and
meet the needs of the community.

Small businesses, operated by hardworking
family members, are an engine
of commerce for many rural communities
across Montana. Baker Furniture
is a shining example of this
business model, and many shoppers in
Baker and the surrounding area are
grateful. Thank you to the team at
Baker Furniture for the many years of
excellent service to your neighbors,
and I wish you continued success in the
future.

Glendive Man Going To Prison

Last Friday, a Glendive man was sentenced to 120 years in the Montana State Prison . 48-year-old Darrin W. Clinton pleaded guilty to 20 counts of incest. He was first charged with 136 counts of incest when he was arrested in June of 2016. Judge Richard Simonton noted during his remarks that both males were 12 years old when he began his relationship with them. Simonton also read a letter by Clinton’s wife that asked for the maximum sentence under the law. Clinton did address the court and apologize for his actions before the sentence was read.
