Remembering Mason Moore

It saddens me that this week we will memorialize a father, a husband and a Broadwater County Sheriff Deputy whose life was taken at far too young of an age. This being May, it is also the month of memorializing those who served and gave their lives...

Hello, Operator?

Do you remember picking up the telephone and getting an operator? I only vaguely remember those days. If you have more accurate memories, please forgive me and feel free to give me a call. As I recall, once you picked up your phone receiver, the...

All This and Angels Too

The headlines read: "Well-Known Educator Killed in Car Accident." But there was much more to that. Russell Grandel, geologist, his wife, Mary Ellen, R.N., along with their nearly 2-year-old son, Frazier, were hit by this man who came at them from...

Letter to the Editor

I am still so amazed at the town of Glasgow, Montana for all the love and support that was shown to the Tim Young family this week after his untimely death. I have never seen a town come together as this one has. I am a 2nd or 3rd cousin? and I... Full story

 

Are We Trusting or Naive?

It was especially interesting to watch the way Trump mouthpieces like Spicer, Conway and that new woman, I forgot already, contemptuously handle the questions being asked by the press. It has been so especially irritating that even Anderson Cooper,...

Tuesday Night Massacre

On Tuesday, the 9th of May, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, was dismissed without warning by President Trump. The coined phrase, “you’re fired” is back. Forty-three years ago on an October night, the then...

Quist on the Issues: Healthcare

The House voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act on May 4, and began the process of implementing the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Republicans had tried to get a similar bill passed earlier this year, but the language of the bill split the party...

Gianforte's Campaign Promises

The direction of our country will be decided in the coming months and I’m committed to making sure Montana’s voice is heard in Washington. I’m running to be Montana’s next Congressman because Montanans deserve a champion who will stand...

Negative Ads, Mother's Day, A Bit of Advice

A Closer Look at Gianforte: Debunking the Public Land Issue

Fake news would love for you to, poetically and with a decent helping of moral superiority, believe that you can forget the party lines separating Greg Gianforte and Rob Quist in this upcoming special election. Supposing a Democrat that endorsed...

 

Wicks Wants a Win

And so it was I found myself hating the Billionaire Tech Mogul who wants to hoard the world for his own benefit, and laughing at the thought of voting for the Cowboy Troubadour Poet going to fight consequential battles in Washington D.C. with a...

The Truth About Rob Quist: A Regular Guy's Money Problems

The Promise of Hope

Life can change in the blink of an eye. I sure found that out at 12:50 a.m. on April 29. I had gotten up to find the lotion I use on my hands because they were itching so badly. I reached out to pull the light cord on the ceiling fan and lost my...

Considering Rob Quist:

Today I visited Pass Creek School, a one-room schoolhouse north of Bozeman with eight kids. We talked about Montana artists and did an art project together. Most of them drew pictures of horses, or of moving cows, or their 4-H pigs. They were smart...

Making May Day Baskets

I am writing this on May Day. Do you remember making May Day baskets out of construction paper and working on the project for a couple of days before May 1? I think that we might have gotten to make some of these baskets as our art project in...

Ag Innovations

We rely on innovation to change our lives, but we tend to think about what it means for phones or the Internet, not farmland. Just as we rely on innovation to help us meet our future needs, we should also look towards innovation to help our...

Quist on Public Lands

Growing up in Cut Bank, one of the most important life-changing memories from my youth was my time in a Boy Scout Troop led by an incredible Scoutmaster, my Uncle Bob Anderson. We would take 100-mile trips up in the mountains and this is where I...

Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from Sierra Holt’s paper, “Reinterpreting the 1882 Bison Population Collapse.” The full text was presented at the 2017 Winter Grazing Seminar in Glasgow. So epidemic was The Answer. Yet something...
