  • The Twittering

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Jan 4, 2023

    Cast your mind back to the warmer climes of April. It’s then we learned that Tesla CEO Elon Musk had become the largest individual shareholder of popular social media platform, Twitter. Things after that got a little messy, but ultimately resulted in him becoming the sole private owner. The deal was cut and dried, and Musk got on with making the management changes and restructures to match his vision and leadership style. Why then, so many months later, is his ownership journey still making headlines? Are the stories of millions of users...

  • Cold Snap and Iguanasicles

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jan 4, 2023

    As you may have read from previous columns, we are currently enjoying some time off from the usual northeastern Montana early winter weather. That cold invasion from Canada extended even deep into sunny Florida. People joked about Canada declaring war on the U.S. Of course, “cold” in Florida is much different from that found in our area, where it is expected to occur. We Montanans are usually much better equipped and prepared for the inconveniences associated with below zero weather. We know to have basic food provisions laid in. We have th...
