  • Glasgow's City Pool is Drowning

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|Aug 3, 2016

    The city pool in Glasgow was built where it stands, or slouches now, 43 years ago. It was opened in June of 1974. It was expected to last around 10 years. Like many other things in Glasgow, it has long outlasted its expiration date. It is now in dilapidated, unsafe condition, and is something that the city of Glasgow as a whole and its residents should be embarrassed about. Why haven’t we built a new pool? Why are we putting pool-goers at risk of injury? What is the solution? Glasgow’s pool is the home to many different activities, even in its...

  • Why America Needs a Constitutional Convention

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|Jul 20, 2016

    America is having a rough summer. However, at the end of the day, I know that being an American citizen and living in a country this great is a blessing. That is why I think we need to adapt the US Constitution to fit our modern needs yet preserve what makes this country great. Politicians and regular citizens alike continue the discussion of issues such as abortion, gun control, gender and sexual orientation equality, police brutality and recreational marijuana usage. The list could go on and on (and on). The problem is, our constitution is... Full story

  • Miss Montana: Competition of Character and Uniqueness

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|Jun 15, 2016

    This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Miss Montana Pageant in Glendive. Before going, I thought it would merely be formal event with contestants having little ability to express themselves. I found out otherwise. The 11 contestants all brought something different and unique to the pageant, which made it entertaining to attend. Naturally, I came to show my own personal support for Abbi Helland, of Glasgow. Not only was I covering the event, she is also a friend. Each contestant... Full story

  • Fiber in Glasgow

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|Jun 8, 2016

    Most people don’t like slow internet. But I, a gamer in NE Montana (the middle of nowhere), have nightmares about slow internet. Now, people with actual work to do must feel some anger when they are inhibited or slowed by their internet speeds. At least, I would imagine so. The point is, the city of Glasgow needs fiber optic cable. I have seen a few posts on Facebook from Glasgow residents, who are not really sure what the problem is or what to do to fix the issue. All they know is that they have slow internet and they hate it. DSL, which I a...

  • George Bros. Go Back-to-Back

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|Jun 8, 2016

    If "Northeast Montana loves fishing" isn't one of the truest statements ever made, I don't know what is. The 17th Annual Catfish Classic hosted 80 teams of two for this year's tournament. Most of the teams consisted of area and Montana residents, with some coming to fish from as far away as Indiana. The teams converged on the Milk River for some fishin' in the dark on Saturday, June 5. After the midnight weigh-ins were all said and done, Glasgow natives Tyler and Ryan George claimed... Full story

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|May 18, 2016

  • Update From Glasgow Police Department

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|May 11, 2016

    After the recent influx of rain and warmer weather, Glasgow Police Department would like to remind everyone to make sure their yards and lots are well kept.

  • Finding Your Floral Fix

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|May 11, 2016

    he saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers," but what do April and May showers bring? I would say they probably bring even more flowers. The Glasgow location is equipped with a double-wide greenhouse on Hwy 2 right in the heart of town across from Albertsons. Patty's also has two other locations in Havre and Malta. If you are looking for more than verdure to spice up your garden, the ladies at Patty's can also outfit you with various-sized planters, bird houses or other garden ornaments,... Full story

  • On Your Mark, Get Set, Grow!

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|May 4, 2016

    As summer approaches, the air gets warmer, the birds start chirping, the boats come out of storage, and the shorts come out of the closet. The same applies to the local greenhouses and their wide array of flora, pots and potting soil. Jolene Reyes, owner of Jo’s Greenhouse in Glasgow, said she started growing things for herself, and it “sprouted” from there. She is set up on Highway 2 next to the VFW, her bright pink and white-striped tent is hard to miss if you are looking for it. This will be her seventh year with a greenhouse, and fourt...

  • Grumbling About Millennials

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|May 4, 2016

    Almost every day, I see a post on Facebook of someone complaining that millennials are over-privileged and want to succeed but they don’t want to work hard for it. It is one of the most ironic things. You see all of these posts, and realize all of these people are using a social media site created by a millennial, Mark Zuckerburg. You will hear people talking about how the music of today’s generation is bad, yet the music industry of today is the most diverse it has ever been. I’m sorry you didn’t get the chance to grow up on hip-hop, rap or... Full story

  • Ghost-Out: An Eye Opener

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|Apr 27, 2016

    Most young people think they are invincible, they can't be scathed, their actions won't hurt anyone. The "ghost-out" held at the Glasgow High School, April 20 was meant to change these perceptions of the local high schoolers. As many drove into school that day, they saw an overturned car, with first responders on the scene. The local emergency departments received this as a real dispatch call. Fortunately, it was a mock accident, but many students were unaware at first. This was the first...

  • Kings of Kitsch

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|Apr 13, 2016

    Most young people in small towns like Glasgow will tell you: There isn't much to do. So people like Cody King, his friends, and many others make their own fun tinkering with cars. Sometimes, the outcome can be different than you might have imagined starting out. Cody's 1976 Ford LTD is not really a car anymore, but kind of a work of art. Its back end and trunk have been replaced with a custom flatbed (with plans for a built-in cooler), some recycled black rims, a custom sound system and a big... Full story

  • Why Young People Shouldn't Be Clamoring For Free Tuition

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|Apr 13, 2016

    Let's say Bernie Sanders gets elected. He completes his free college plan. Everyone gets their degrees. What happens next? The same thing that has been happening for years. Young people graduate from college and they don’t find a good job. Or they go and find a job that they could have gotten four, five, six years earlier without their degree. In the 2010 US Census, only 62 percent of people with degrees had a job that required one, and 27 percent of people had jobs associated with their degree’s major. Now imagine if everyone could go to col...

  • Why Trump is Successful

    Parker Kulczyk, Juvenescent Jots|Apr 6, 2016

    Republicans hate Trump. Democrats hate Trump. Social media hates Trump. The media pretends to hate Trump. Everyone hates Trump. Trump Trump Trump. Or do they? In Trump’s case, the phrase “any press is good press” is becoming the most accurate statement ever made. Donald Trump could say that he wants to build a wall and make Canada pay for it and people would go crazy, both for and against. But it’s not about his politics. It never was. Because Donald Trump isn’t a politician. He is a rich guy. He doesn’t think like a politician, and does he... Full story

  • Bike Peddler

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|Mar 30, 2016

    Ron Guttenberg is 82 years old, but he is one of the busiest and most active 82 year-olds I have met. Guttenberg has been fixing bicycles since his children had their first two-wheelers. His first project for someone other than his own kids, was for a neighbor girl whom he found crying on his front porch because her bike was broken. Since then, Guttenberg has developed a knack for restoring bicycles to "just like new." After retiring from State Farm Insurance over a decade ago, Guttenberg and...
