  • Rocking a Hunter's Tan

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 5, 2022

    "I just nerded out on the science." Chelsea Dodd, who holds a degree in chemistry, is a self-taught tanner in Glasgow trying to keep a dying art alive. Tanning is a relatively new hobby for the woman who works for the Glasgow Water Department. She has been learning and refining her technique for roughly three years, working primarily on her own hides while occasionally taking on projects for friends. This is how I found her – through mutual friends. Dodd had prepared a taxidermy ear for her n...

    Chris McDaniel, Courier Publisher|Jan 5, 2022

    “And how about the Federal government? Well, unsurprisingly, it managed to keep spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need,” U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says in the 2021 “Festivus”’ Report on Government Waste, an annual compilation of how the federal government wastes taxpayer money on often absurd programs. So how much did our esteemed representatives and senators waste this year? A whopping $52,598,515,585 in government waste, according to the Emerging Threats and Spending Oversight (ETSO) Subcommittee for the Homeland Secu... Full story

  • OP-ED: The Power of Listening

    Jim Elliott|Jan 5, 2022

    You can learn a lot by listening to what someone has to say, especially if you disagree with them. I’m not talking about learning only about what issue they might be talking about, I mean that you can learn a lot about the person you’re listening to, you learn to respect them as a person, and I think it goes the other way, too, that they learn to respect you. My awakening about the benefits of listening came around 1993 when I returned a phone call to an irate constituent. I had been in the Montana House of Representatives for a few years and... Full story

  • OP-ED: A Modest Proposal - Pandemic Saving Time

    Thomas Knapp|Jan 5, 2022

    It's only early January, and already this 2022 thing is obviously not working out. With the "omicron variant" of COVID-19 upon us, politicians and public health authorities are already off on their next round of COVID-19 Hokey Pokey: You put your school closures in. You pull your mask mandates out. You put your rising case numbers in, and you shake them all about. You do the COVID-19 Hokey Pokey and you order people around. That's what it's all about. A successful COVID-19 Hokey Pokey this time around requires ignoring the fact that, even allow... Full story

  • Happy New Year to All!

    Frank and Lin Vargo, Special to The Courier|Jan 5, 2022

    We got to talking the other day about the city of Glasgow, Montana being in the “Middle of Nowhere” but had a question about that… just how did they come up with this? Found out that a group at Oxford’s Big Data Institute that studies the intersection of disease, geography and demographics, spent years building a globe-spanning map outlining just how long it takes to cross any spot on the planet. So the Washington Post stated that they spent hours of computer time processing every pixel and every populated place in the contiguous United States...

  • Nuts, Berries, or Drupes?

    Mary Honrud, Special to The Courier|Jan 5, 2022

    First off, I feel I owe all of you another apology. Maybe a double one. We are on vacation in warm, sunny Florida, and so are (aren’t?) missing out on all that delicious below zero temps you’ve been enjoying. So that’s one (that we’re warmer than you right now). The other is because of the timing of the holidays, I lost track of what day of the week it was or what the deadline should have been. So I didn’t get a column written last week. I’m crying crocodile tears over that lapse. (In other words, sorry, NOT sorry.) We haven’t just been enj...

  • Remember When For Jan. 5, 2021

    Gwen Cornwell, Special to The Courier|Jan 5, 2022

    Greetings and Happy New Year to all readers! I would say that my New Year’s resolution is to get my articles to The Courier weekly, but then I know that most resolutions are made to be broken so let me say I will just try and do better. Do you remember the large floor grate that was found in most homes in by gone days? This was the furnace vent and provided a great place to stand and warm yourself up after a jaunt outside in winter’s fridge weather. That was in the day before many women wore jeans, sweats, etc., only dresses. What a won...

  • Technology, Health & Happiness For 2022

    Richard Noble, Special to The Courier|Jan 5, 2022

    Hands up who made their New Year’s resolution to take better care of themselves. Now put your hand down. Now back up again. Exercise! You’re welcome. For those of us who have decided to make 2022 the year we put our health first, but perhaps need a little motivation to keep moving; thankfully technology to both pester and reward us toward our goals is readily available and eager to assist. We aren’t quite living in a future where our cars can prevent us from caving in and visiting the drive-through, but we’re pretty close… So what’s av...

  • Some Groups Left Out of Covid Test Giveaway Program

    MARA SILVERS AND KATHERYN HOUGHTON, Montana Free Press|Jan 5, 2022

    As Montana's tally of new covid cases neared 1,000 each day in September, Shelly Stanley-Lehman worried about when the virus would reach her day care in Billings. She wanted to have covid tests on hand to help prevent an outbreak from sweeping through her business, but stores were sold out. She spent days making calls and searching online. When Stanley-Lehman finally got her hands on a box of tests later that month, it was too late - a child's family member, unknowingly infected, had exposed... Full story
