He also indicated movement on the Dakota Access oil pipeline, though timelines and other details remain unclear at press time. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that the moves on the pipelines will be subject to the terms and conditions currently being renegotiated by the government.

  • Glasgow Road Department Executes Snow Removal Plan

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jan 25, 2017

    Karl Krause, head of the Glasgow Road Department, told the Courier that they are working to clear the roads of snow. Krause said the city uses their snow removal plan in order to prioritize roads for removal. "We start with priority roads, then we do hills, and then we take on any trouble spots that really need attention." Since receiving over 10 inches of snow two weeks ago, the removal crews have been working at clearing the snow packs in Glasgow. "We have removed dozens of truck loads," said... Full story

  • Open Letter to the Legislature

    Ron Stoneberg, Managing Management|Jan 25, 2017

    As the 65th MT Legislative Session opened for business last week, the usual calls for budget cuts were exceedingly shrill. What made matters worse this year was the loss of revenue due to the demise of the coal and oil and gas industries in Montana. We knew this day of reckoning was coming, so now the budget knives are being sharpened and the fun has begun. I have a suggestion. In the last legislative session the Governor proposed (and the legislature dutifully passed) $10 million to assist sage grouse populations. This was in addition to the...

  • Winters aren't for Wimps

    Rick and Susie Graetz, UM Dept. Of Geography|Jan 25, 2017

    It seems that this year much of Montana is experiencing a tough winter, but it’s actually not. We are just getting back to winter after last year’s weird spell. Temperature readings haven’t gone wild – yet. No reporting stations have recorded 50 below or colder, and the coldest known low during January’s first week was 46 below Fahrenheit. Twenty to 30 below was more prevalent in the past. Stories abound about conditions changing quickly and in a pronounced way. Montana holds the national record for cold with a 70-degrees-below-zero reading n...

  • Inauguration Uff Da

    Chris Pippin, Saco Speaks|Jan 25, 2017

    Well it happened. Inauguration day came and went. I was well aware of the fact after briefly checking my Facebook account. It was “lit up,” as the saying goes, by friends on both sides of the political aisle. I vowed to stay clear and avoid any “news” and was fairly successful at my attempt. For all matters, it seemed a grandiose day for the celebrants and a morose one for protesters. Thank God it passed peacefully. Congratulations and my condolences for everyone, depending on your outlook. Then Saturday brought us even more fodder for the new...

  • What I've Learned

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Jan 25, 2017

    I began writing this column as a way to describe my opinions outright. I wanted to take on my thoughts without being swayed or influenced by external pressures. I have done that. I started writing fairly certain of my own thoughts and ideals, but have come to realize, while grappling with my own misconceptions, that I was failing to see clearly. As a result, I have not necessarily changed my values, but have definitely changed my views. I have altered my perception of civil rights, minimum wage, and the value of protests in trying to ensure I...

  • The Upside of Recycling

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jan 25, 2017

    "RECYCLE PAPER TOWELS AND NAPKINS," this headline caught my eye one day when I decided to browse the internet. You readers with any age on you, no doubt would have the same reaction as I. Remember when everything was reusable to some extent, and of course caused many of us to save everything for that future need? But recycling paper was basically done with catalogs and that wasn’t the true meaning of recycling. Now, back to paper towels napkins, and Kleenex. A garment or any absorbent fabric was always recycled, removing buttons, zippers, e...

  • Chances & Opportunities

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Jan 25, 2017

    It’s been said that time flies. It surely does. When a couple gets married, they really don’t think about the years ahead. They usually hope to have children. When their children are born, they don’t really understand how fast that time can go. If you talk about when their children will graduate, parents will most likely comment, "That is years away." It may be, but it goes more quickly than a person realizes. I’ve often said a child is born one day and graduates from high school the next day. Each day melts into the next. Too often we miss ou...

  • Grace Adeline Squires

    Jan 25, 2017

    Grace Adeline Squires spent her life preparing to meet her Lord and Savior. She left this world peacefully on Tuesday morning, Dec. 20, 2016, to do just that.

  • Scotties Split Games vs. Sidney, North Country

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 25, 2017

    The Sidney Eagles came from behind to defeat the Scotties in a home game held at Scottie Gymnasium Jan. 19. Although there was only a one-bucket margin in favor of the Eagles at the end of the first quarter, the Scotties overcame that deficit and pulled ahead of the class A opponent, allowing only six points from the field in the second quarter. Senior starter Brayden Ross dominated the second quarter, scoring 10 of 18 points for the Scotties and giving Glasgow a nine-point lead at the half. Def... Full story
