  • Perched Out on the Ice

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Feb 6, 2019

    The Glasgow Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture hosted their 21st Annual Ice Fishing Derby on the ice at the Dredge Cuts Trout Pond on Saturday, Feb. 2. The yearly winter sports staple attracted 41 participants who utilized 92 pre-drilled holes to land 19 different fish. Saturday saw high temperatures reaching up into the forty degree range with a slight overcast and almost no wind, which in short made for a good day of ice fishing. It was also those fluctuating temperatures and predicted... Full story

  • From the Middle of Nowhere to Moscow

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Feb 6, 2019

    Born in Glasgow, he has made his way from the Middle of Nowhere to Stanford, St. Petersburg, Oxford, Washington, D.C., and Moscow. He went from being a student in Russia before the fall of the Soviet Union, to becoming one of the world’s most renowned experts on the country as they attempted to transition from communism to capitalism. He’s been a scholar, an activist, an advisor to a president, and an Ambassador to Russia. McFaul maintains high-profile, post-public service for many reasons. He was the first American non-career diplomat to ser... Full story

  • Junior High Learning to Fly

    Rachel Sigmundstad, The Courier|Feb 6, 2019

    If you attended the basketball games on Jan. 31, you might have noticed some new faces among the cheerleaders. Amid the usual winter squad members were a handful of eighth graders out for their first night on the court. After only two practices, the girls were nearly indistinguishable from their older counterparts as they stunted and danced in GHS Cheer uniforms. Assistant coach Tayte Prewett said that their intent was to excite the eighth graders for cheer, while setting them apart from the... Full story

  • Letters to the Editor

    Feb 6, 2019

    Dear Editor, I am writing to thank Glasgow residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season. Because of the generosity of donors in Glasgow and across the United States, Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, collected more than 8.8 million shoeboxes in 2018. Combined with those collected from partnering countries in 2018, the ministry is now sending more than 10.6 million shoebox gifts to children suffering from poverty, natural disasters, war, disease and famine. These s... Full story

    Dear Editor, Where’s the beef…from? No one wants to be mislead, but it is happening every day at your meat counter. “Product of USA” is now gracing your beef and pork labels, even though your beef and pork are quite possibly not from an American farmer or rancher. This loophole in the USDA process which allows this to happen has to stop. We can start reversing this process by correctly informing Montana consumers with accurate Country-of-Origin-Placards at grocery stores. In 2005, we banded together as Montanans to demand accurate placard... Full story

    Feb 6, 2019

    Dear Editor, What do rural hospitals, small businesses, and 1 in 10 Montanans have in common? They all benefit from Montana’s Medicaid expansion. That’s why I’ve introduced the Keep Montana Healthy Act, which will continue a program that works well for the health of all Montanans. During the 2015 legislative session, I proudly co-sponsored a bill that expanded health care coverage to 1 in 10 Montanans. Now, four years later, Medicaid expansion is firing on all cylinders. Here’s what we know: First and foremost, Montanans are healthier than ev...

  • Prairie Prescription

    Helen DePuydt, Prairie Poet|Feb 6, 2019

    Those hardy individuals homesteading on the northern plains of Montana never expected the services that society now enjoys: There was on exception, though: doctors’ house calls. Living an austere life 40-plus miles from the nearest town was handled readily – that is, until illness struck. This happened in our family during the late 1920s. My only sister, Hazel, was struck by a mysterious malady. Word was sent to Malta with a neighbor who had already planned to make the trip. A horse-drawn farm wagon could travel the distance in two days – i...

  • Remembering Winters

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Feb 6, 2019

    Do you remember the winters of 49-50, 50-51 and 64-65? Those are only the years that come to my mind and I do know there were many other winters etched in memory. If you remember, I need go no further. For those who do not remember, let me help with some of those past winters. Do you remember driving from Point A to Point B along roads with snow banks higher than your car? Winds and snow so bad that you had small snow drifts along the base boards inside your house. Ice on top of the water bucket (your source of household water) that was broken...

  • Wild Bison Defined, Pipelines Challenged

    Chelcie Cargill, Montana Farm Bureau Federation|Feb 6, 2019

    “Don’t ever think your voice isn’t important.” This was the key message we hoped to impart on the Young Farmers & Ranchers who attended our Calling on the Capitol event this week in Helena. Attendees met with agency officials, bill drafters, committee chairmen and had the opportunity to participate in committee hearings. These events are a highlight of our time in Helena; getting farmers and ranchers in the halls of the Capitol is one of the key priorities to passing strong agricultural policy. In last week’s column we predicted the pace in H...

    The Glasgow U19 Ice Dawgs faced two devastating losses this past weekend at the Valley Event Center. On Feb. 1, they faced off against Sidney on home ice but couldn't fend off the visiting team.

  • Scotties Grind at Divisional Wrestling

    George Kulczyk, The Courier|Feb 6, 2019

    The Scottie wrestlers are peaking at the right time. Heading into the state meet after an exceptional divisional showing, the potential for individual hardware is high, if not a certainty. A team title will be more elusive as Colstrip is expected to continue their dominating season. “We've got some tough matches ahead of us,” explained head coach Jory Casterline. “We just need to take it one match at a time.” The Scotties finished their divisional meet, which was held in Forsyth on Feb. 2, in second place behind Colstrip, and produced a pair... Full story
