    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Feb 15, 2023

  • Concerning Veterans' Eye Care Proposal

    Feb 15, 2023

    Dear Editor, Last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) launched an initiative to establish national standards of practice for health professionals serving veterans to improve efficiency and consistency in the delivery of care across the VA health system. As part of its process, the VA is considering if it can safely expand the scope of practice of certain non-physician health practitioners.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Feb 15, 2023

    Dear Editor, The editors and columnists in Ag Publications have often stated that if the ranching community hopes to get anything done they have to speak with one voice. I agree. However, some large organizations claiming to represent the cow/calf producers and feeders are not representing our interests. One of the main issues that are dividing us is mandatory country of origin labeling (MCOOL) of beef and pork. Frankly, I am baffled as to why these organizations are opposing it if the cattle...

  • Montana's Right to Repair

    Feb 15, 2023

    Dear Editor, Montana farmers and ranchers face numerous challenges. Some of these challenges such as weather, commodity prices, and bank loan rates are beyond a single farmer's ability to manage. On the other hand, there are challenges faced by Montana producers, which one could reasonably consider as manageable, yet in reality are not. One of the biggest challenges thrown in the face of Montana agriculture that falls in this category is when original equipment manufacturers lock farmers and...

  • Six Steps To Kick-Start Your Small Business In 2023

    Feb 15, 2023

    Dear Editor, Making predictions is never easy, especially for small business owners and their managers. Unlike their larger counterparts, small firms do not always have the resources necessary to monitor and adapt to new consumer trends and/or changes in the economy. Even entrepreneurs who've experienced numerous business cycles face new circumstances that confound their instincts and knowledge. As we enter the new year, it is important to assess the economic landscape to determine the best...

  • Case Dealership

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Feb 15, 2023

    Do you remember when the Case dealership in Glasgow was on Hwy 2? As I remember, the building was about in line with the stop light where turning to cross the railroad tracks. This facility was marked by two large eagles outside the building. These were not flying eagles, rather two standing eagles. This was rather a fascinating draw in my childhood days. It might have been so as my Dad worked there at one time but I doubt it. Those eagles marked that site for many years and I have often wondered what happened to them. Might they still be in...

    For the Courier|Feb 15, 2023

Without that storm, basin-wide snowpack p...
