BIG HOLE BREEZES of Greater Big Hole Valley! Big Hole Breezes first started in 1899, in Jackson, Montana. Author Bertha A. Francis described the impact of the paper on the valley like this: "Thus, did the Breezes blow in season and out of season, for the good of the valley, to record the marriages, the births, and the deaths, the dances and parties, the school picnics, the joys and sorrows, the everyday happenings that make up the life of a people." Shortly thereafter, the offices moved to Wisdom. Over the years the name changed to Big Hole Basin News, and the Wisdom Times.

Modern day efforts...In 2019, a group of ladies from Jackson, Wisdom, and Wise River got together and re-birthed the newspaper, using the original name, "Big Hole Breezes." How we do it...Big Hole Breezes is an endeavor put together by volunteers from various communities in the Big Hole Valley. Currently we offer a printed mailed edition, as well as a digital version on a monthly basis. Day-to-day information is posted on the Local Breeze/Big Hole Valley Facebook pages. You can find us at Serving: Glen, Melrose, Divide, Dewey, Wise River, Polaris, Jackson, and Wisdom. Our mission is to promote healthy communities and businesses by fostering cooperative efforts between individuals, businesses, and community groups to generate interest, activity, and door swings!
