  • Johnny Holm Band Show a Hit

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    Forget dueling pianos. The Johnny Holm Band turned their concert this past Friday night into a true community event with "dueling microphones." The band shared their mikes with several concert-goers, who displayed as much talent as the band and who may have garnered more applause. The act wasted no time in involving the audience in their three-hour-plus long show. After a single song onstage to kick off the performance, Johnny Holm leaped off the stage and finagled several attendees into...

  • Social Media Use Suspected in Scam Attempt

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    Last week, a local business was solicited by an inmate currently incarcerated in South Carolina, who asked for $100 for his canteen (commissary) and in exchange he would pay the business back $150. Though Larry Edward Chandler, Jr. apparently has no ties to the community, nor has he ever visited Glasgow, he somehow had personal knowledge of the business and employees. Given his familiarity with the business (including products offered), local law enforcement believes Chandler used a false social...

  • 41st Christmas Bird Count in Fort Peck Beats Record for Species

    Charles Carlson, For the Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    Rebecca Colnar, For the Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    The Nashua boys and girls faced Dodson on Saturday, Jan. 2, and both teams prevailed over their opponent. In the first game of the night, the Lady Porcupines defeated the Lady Coyotes with a final score of 52-30.

  • Mavericks Defeat Porcupines in Two Games Split Games in Scobey

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    The North Country Mavericks traveled to Nashua Thursday night for two games against the Porcupines. The varsity girls started off the evening just a little after 6 p.m. The Lady Mavs undoubtedly dominated the entire contest, but the scrappy Lady Porcupines didn't go down without a fight. The game was definitely physical, and both teams consistently had girls picking themselves up of the floor. With their overall scoring fluctuating quite a bit in each quarter, Nashua struggled to maintain any consistency. Although the second and fourth...

  • Lions Unable to Conquer Indians, Fall to Poplar

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 13, 2016

    The Lustre Christian Lions traveled to Poplar to face the Indians for their first game of the new year on Tuesday, Jan. 5. The Lady Lions took to the court in the first game of the night, and if not for the slow start in the first quarter of the game, the contest may have had a different outcome. Scoring only nine points in the first quarter compared to Poplar's 23 points, Lustre was just never able to bounce back. The remainder of the game was much more balanced with Poplar scoring 44 points to Lustre's 41. The Lady Indians came away with the... Full story

  • To My Grandchildren: Part II

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just A Thought|Jan 13, 2016

    Last week I wrote a column titled To My Grandchildren. There was more I wanted to add to that column but wasn’t able to, so this week I’m finishing what I wanted to say. Refrain from gossiping. It isn’t good for anyone -- not for the person you are talking about and especially not for you. Many times when not all the facts are known about a person’s situation, people will add their own idea to the story. Don’t be a part of saying things about another person that are not true. Gossip has been known to destroy a person’s life. You don’t want...

  • Look Beyond the Surface

    Mary Honrud, Sowing Notions|Jan 13, 2016

    The news of the death of rocker David Bowie and the listings of all his accomplishments has me thinking of my mortality and what kind of legacy I’m leaving behind. (David was the same age my big brother is now. I admire the both of them.) I’m afraid my obit notice will be very short: she loved to garden and crochet. However, legacies are for famous people such as presidents and rock stars. I’m not in either category, so it’s not really something over which I need to obsess. I will be content with what I’ve accomplished. I hope my daughters...

  • Don't Forget FAFSA

    Carolynn Bright, Kids Count|Jan 13, 2016

    Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) season is here and nonprofit Student Assistance Foundation encourages all Montanans who want to pursue postsecondary education in the upcoming academic year to complete this form. With the nation-wide concern about student debt, it’s important to emphasize that the FAFSA isn’t all about student loans. Instead, it is about access to a wide range of education funding opportunities. Students and families who complete the FAFSA open doors to about $150 billion in different forms of federal stu...

  • Considering Colstrip

    Greg Gianforte, Eyes on Energy|Jan 13, 2016

    What happens if we lose Colstrip? “It’ll look like Ground Zero.” That’s what the mayor of Colstrip told me during a recent visit. To Colstrip moms like Cheryl Fulkerson, it means her husband and her son may both lose their jobs in the coal industry. And, it means the place that she has called home for 21 years may no longer exist. I could see the tears in Cheryl’s eyes as she introduced me to local officials and business owners concerned about the future of Colstrip. Even the realtor told me, “No homes are selling.” But it’s not just Cheryl...

  • Making America SAFE

    Ryan Zinke, Zeroing In|Jan 13, 2016

    Last week, in two separate stings in Texas and California, the FBI arrested two Iraqi refugees for connections to terrorism. These individuals were screened in accordance with the Obama Administration’s “rigorous” vetting standards, which include interviews, fingerprinting and running refugees’ names against databases. It didn’t work. As I have long warned, these individuals cannot be properly vetted because such counter-terrorism databases simply do not exist in the nations the refugees are emigrating from. Back in November, I introduce...

  • Prominent 'Old Stuff'

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jan 13, 2016

    I love seeing the pictures of old Glasgow buildings, or other historical places that are often in the Courier. I am sure that comes as a shock when you consider that I like remembering the “old stuff”. The old County Courthouse often comes to mind, as it is prominent in a lot of pictures of Glasgow in an earlier era. Remember when you licensed your vehicles in January and February. I don’t recall the cut of date for updating your plates, but I do remember that you could count on finding a line of people at the Treasurer’s office. This was pro...
