  • Take the bull by the horns, legislature: Pass Country of Origin Labeling in Montana

    Feb 10, 2021

    Dear Editor, Consumers have the right to know the origin of their beef purchases, and ranchers have the right to a fair and competitive market. This is a reasonable expectation. However, since 2015 Congress specifically exempted beef and pork from labeling laws. Consumers do not know where their beef comes from, and ranchers do not have fair prices. If you are a consumer learning of this for the first time, you might be incredulous. The last time you purchased beef from the supermarket, the... Full story

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Feb 10, 2021

    MARY HONRUD FOR THE COURIER We’ve had another trip to Billings, this one for a couple of medical reasons. The main one was for another follow-up on Dennis’s shoulder procedure. The healing of that shoulder is proceeding extremely well. He’s the anomaly in that he’s way ahead of the curve in range of motion/lack of pain. The other reason was my dental referral. I was lucky enough to be able to get my tooth extraction scheduled for the same time. The tooth had been bothering me for at least three years. Two re-fills and root canals had not cur...

The Dawgs have served an inordinate amount of time in the penalty box this season which has contributed to several losses this season as opponents have taken advantage of their...
