  • New Year's Eve Sees Zero Accidents, DUIs

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jan 9, 2019

    The Valley County Search and Rescue, in partnership with the three local wrecker services (Thompson & Sons, Glenn’s Automotive and Hi-Line Collision), gave rides to 206 New Year’s Eve celebrants Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. According to Search and Rescue director Rob Brunelle, that number more than doubled the 2018 New Year’s celebration. As a result of the ride program, the Valley County DUI Task Force will donate $500 to Valley County Search and Rescue. According to Sheriff Tom Boyer, the program likely contributed to a New Year’s Eve that saw no...

  • Rocking the Night Away

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 9, 2019

    In what is becoming a much-anticipated annual tradition, the Johnny Holm Band once again rocked Glasgow. The band, well-known to many residents of the area, performed at the Glasgow Civic Center this past Friday, Jan. 4. The group did not disappoint, launching into classics and getting bodies on the dance floor. And as has become tradition, they "outsourced" some singing to exceptionally talented locals. While ticket sale numbers aren't yet finalized, a Chamber of Commerce board member said, "Fr...

  • City to Consider Expanding GPD Jurisdiction

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jan 9, 2019

    The Glasgow City Council is expected to take up the issue of expanding the Glasgow Police Department’s arrest authority out five miles from the current city limits at their next regular meeting on Jan. 21. The measure, if approved, would add roughly 100 square miles to the current GPD coverage area. According to Chief of Police Brien Gault, the reasoning is to alleviate concerns the department and the city have regarding liability for Glasgow police officers. Gault asserts that as it stands now questions on the liability of officers could c...

  • Set Aside Politics

    Rep. Casey Schreiner, House Minority Leader|Jan 9, 2019

    Dear Editor, If there's one thing Montanans can unite behind, it's that we're sick and tired of self-serving politicians who are all talk, no walk. As the House Minority Leader for the 2019 Legislative Session, I couldn't agree more. Montana families deserve a Legislature that sets aside the partisan, political blustering. And they deserve lawmakers that lead with solutions. That's why House Democrats have our sleeves rolled up and are eager to get to work. As citizen legislators, our number...

  • Tracking Down the Decision Makers

    Chelcie Cargill, Montana Farm Bureau Federation|Jan 9, 2019

    You’ve heard the expression, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” We know this is true. In the life of an idea becoming legislation, there are a few key people that you need to know in order to make your voice for agriculture most effective. In last week’s column, we talked about the importance of using this time before the 2019 Montana Legislature goes into session to “prep the soil” and get to know your local elected officials. While it is important to have a relationship with your own legislators, they may not be on the committee you...

  • What You Should Expect From Me

    Sheriff Tom Boyer, From the Sheriffs Office|Jan 9, 2019

    Dear Valley County, As I sit at my desk this afternoon, the 31st of December 2018, to consider what might be important to convey to the residents of Valley County, I can not help but consider where we have come from. In a short time, I will be taking Retired Sheriff Vernon Buerkle home to drop him off. How weird it must feel for him, after over 40 years of service in this county, to watch his patrol vehicle drive away. To say his final “off shift” to dispatch over the radio. Sheriff Buerkle, like those who came before him, gave his best eff...
