  • Scotties Grind at Divisional Wrestling

    George Kulczyk, The Courier|Feb 6, 2019

    The Scottie wrestlers are peaking at the right time. Heading into the state meet after an exceptional divisional showing, the potential for individual hardware is high, if not a certainty. A team title will be more elusive as Colstrip is expected to continue their dominating season. “We've got some tough matches ahead of us,” explained head coach Jory Casterline. “We just need to take it one match at a time.” The Scotties finished their divisional meet, which was held in Forsyth on Feb. 2, in second place behind Colstrip, and produced a pair... Full story

  • Horn Public Forum

    George Kulczyk, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, I attended the public forum held by Joe Horn’s biological daughters, Amy Horn-Brown and Gail Horn-Hayes, at the Elks on Oct. 6. I did not attend as a representative of the Courier, nor am I writing this as a representative of the Courier; these are my personal thoughts and feelings. Although I hope that people reading this will trust my sincerity and respect my opinions, I am fully aware that I am opening myself up to name-calling and derision from certain members of the community. I am a lifelong resident of Valley County and I c...

  • Scottie Harriers Sweep in Harlem, Missoula Bound

    George Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 17, 2018

    The Scottie cross country team finished up their regular season of competition at the Harlem Invitational on Oct. 13. With a clean sweep of the meet for both the boys and girls, it was a nice way to end the season. Although both teams performed well, a change in the venue may have affected their overall performance. The course was originally set to be held in Harlem, but had to be moved to Ft. Belknap due to muddy conditions. Alaina Sallee, a senior on the team, was mildly disappointed in her...

  • 21 Seconds, 3 Yards, 6 Points

    George Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 17, 2018

    The Scottie gridiron boys waited until the last seconds of their game vs. Baker to make the play of the night. The Oct. 12 contest held in Glasgow was stagnate for the majority of the night, with neither side making any progress on the field. Offensively, the Scotties struggled to score. They came within scoring position a number of times but could not capitalize on the opportunity. "I think senior night nerves had a lot to do with it for us," said senior Tayson Hoerster. "Plus, Baker brought it...

    The Glasgow Kiwanis Swim Team competed in Conrad at the state swim meet Aug. 4 and 5. Going into the weekend, the team was seeded sixth in the class "A" division. According to head coach Nicole Arnold, Glasgow was embracing the challenge of trying to move up to trophy contention but the deficit of athletes proved to be too strong. "Glasgow had only 22 athletes in the individual events," she explained. "Every other team had five, or more, athletes. We narrowly ended up in sixth-place, but the...

  • Just Another Sunday in Big Sky Country

    George Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 21, 2015

    It's almost been three years since my dad, Myron Blanchard, died. I find that hard to believe, but that's what it says on his headstone. There are things that remind me of him every day. Heck, sometimes I even see him. This past Sunday, I took some much needed time to complete some unfinished business. I asked my friend James to help me set Dad's headstone. After I asked him, I briefly thought, "That's a pretty creepy thing to ask someone you've known all of six months." Then I remembered,...
