  • Hockey Is For Every Body

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    Each sport has its own unique sounds. The crack of a baseball bat connecting with a ball. The squeak of high tops on the basketball court. The thump of football pads colliding at the snap. A hockey fan can name several unique sounds from their game of choice - the singing of a puck off the cross bar, the slap shot, the thump of a bread basket pad save. But the sound that truly sets hockey apart from other team sports is the susurrus of the skates on the ice. The skates' whisper on the fast ice...

  • Emma Wall Honored by State JMG

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    Glasgow High School Senior Emma Wall was one of only four students recognized by the statewide Jobs for Montana Graduates organization this year for an essay she wrote about her JMG experience and what that experience has meant for her life. The essay competition gives 11th and 12th-grade students an opportunity to showcase how JMG benefits their personal and career goals. “It’s really about how JMG has helped me come into myself,” explained Wall, discussing her essay.

  • Election Days at Tampico Hall

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    I had occasion the other day to make a visit to the Tampico Hall. I was surprised at how nostalgic the visit made me. Opening the door to the building and seeing the wooden benches and tables brought back many memories of community card parties, dances, school Christmas plays, and election days. Election days as I remember were always good, as there was pie and coffee offered also. So many social events such as birthday and anniversary parties, reunions and of course 4-H meetings and events. Tampico Hall, one of my good memories, but I did...

  • Montana Businesses Need Protection from COVID-19 Liability

    Jan 13, 2021

    Dear Editor, Montana, along with the rest of the US, has suffered through almost an entire year filled with the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. The impact on our health can be quantified by infection rates, the number of hospitalizations, and COVID-19 related deaths. Quantifying the effects on our economy is much more difficult. While vaccines offer hope to the end of the pandemic, the gravity of the economic fallout is yet to be determined. On his second day in office, Governor Gianforte took...

  • Montana Wildlife Federation on Gov. Gianforte's Proposed Budget

    Jan 13, 2021

    This budget is a good starting point and continues to fund the state agencies and outdoor programs that support wildlife protection, enhance public access, and conserve our working lands.

We appreciate Governor Gianforte making clear in his inaugural address earlier this week one of his four core principles to be the conservation and improvement of public...

  • Enduring Epiphytes Exposed? Or Further Florida Flora

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    There are many more epiphytes than most of us non-botanists are aware. I've done a little more studying on these plants, which comprise roughly ten percent of all plant species. So if you are bored with this subject, feel free to skip my column this week. It won't offend me since I don't know who reads my offerings unless you personally tell me. As a quick review, I'll remind you that epiphytes are "air plants". They use other plants as a support, but acquire their moisture from the air around t...

Loden Idler led the visiting team with 17 points in a game in which the Mavericks led up through the end of the third quarter.

  • Mavericks Defeat Scotties in Glasgow

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    From the moment the North Country Mavericks won the tip off against the Glasgow Scotties they were in control of the game. The visitors went on to win decisively 49-33 led by Jaycee Erickson's 19 points and Kaitlyn McColly's 15. Riley Noser and Tyann Graham led the Scotties with 14 and 12, respectively. Glasgow's troubles in the game started early when Abrianna Nielsen took a seat on the bench with two fouls just 33 seconds into the game. McColly scored first for North Country and the team would...

  • 19U Ice Dawgs Drop Two to Fusion

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jan 13, 2021

    The 19U Ice Dawgs hosted their first home games this past weekend, facing off twice against the Flathead Fusion. Glasgow dropped their games on Jan. 8 and 9 to the visitors, who sported a far deeper bench than the home town girls. Glasgow appeared to take some time to get their game legs going on Friday evening after an extended holiday break. The girls stayed fairly even with Flathead in the first period, as the Fusion put up eight shots in the first to the Dawgs' six attempts. However, the Fus...

    Gwendolyne Honrud|Jan 13, 2021

    The Glasgow wrestlers hosted their home opener Friday, Jan. 7, the first of eight events this season in Glasgow, before traveling to Cut Bank for another triangular on Saturday. Glasgow faced off against two Class A schools, Havre and Dawson County and matched up against Cut Bank and Lincoln County on the road. At home Glasgow lost their first dual against Havre due in part to forfeited matches. Wins and losses for both teams were even at five a piece, but Glasgow gave up two matches to forfeits...
