    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Feb 26, 2014

  • Johnnie Cafe Music To My Ears

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Feb 26, 2014

    Do you remember the Johnnie Café? Yes, of course, most everyone remembers and misses that eating spot – a gathering and meeting spot for so many. A place you where could always run into family and friends, our rural neighbors, not just from Glasgow but from the surrounding areas. How many of you remember when you could select and play music on the juke box right from the convenience of your booth? Each booth along the wall had a device mounted just above the booth table, allowing you to se...

  • I Need To Write About This

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just A Thought|Feb 26, 2014

    As I was thinking about my column for this week, I decided that there have been some things happen lately that need to be written about. So here goes. The past few weeks, I’ve attended and taken part in several fundraisers to help local residents. Each time I was amazed and overwhelmed by the generosity that was shown. Once again, I’ve witnessed how Montanans come together when there is a great need. I was reminded of the time when I was in England and asked what size of town I live in. My reply was that I don’t feel I live in a town -- I fee...

  • Reinstate Party Designations In Local Elections

    Edward D. Neil, Letter To The Editor|Feb 26, 2014

    Dear Editor: I am a first-generation native Montanan and new resident of Valley County, having arrived here last August by way of Rosebud and Cascade counties after 16 years as an economic refugee in Seattle by way of Salt Lake City. Please indulge me as I attempt to address an issue of local, state and debatably national interest as briefly and clearly as possible. According to the Montana State Constitution, Article XI, Section 9, the legislature requires an election in each local government every 10 years to review its structure and submit...

  • Montana Needs More High-Paying Jobs

    Steve Daines--U.S. Representative, Political Opinion|Feb 26, 2014

    At RightNow Technologies, I helped grow a small software startup into Bozeman’s largest commercial employer, creating hundreds of high-paying Montana jobs along the way. And after spending 28 years in business, I’ve come to know that there are a few principles that are essential for any small Montana business. Hard work and accountability are critical to success. To make a profit and balance a budget, you can’t spend more than you take in. And if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid. These common sense principles are sorely missing in Wash...

  • Bringing Home The Hardware

    Samuel Knodel, For The Courier|Feb 26, 2014

    This past weekend was a huge success for the U-14 girls hockey team. Glasgow's road to the title started with an opening round game against Missoula. Missoula came out swinging with a first period goal at only three minutes in. Glasgow returned the favor and then some scoring three goals in the period. Kennedy Schmidt started the scoring off as she was assisted by Jesi Kennedy. Emily Kolstad had a nice unassisted goal of her own before Jesi got in on the scoring action with an assist from...

    Virgil Vaupel, Courier Correspondent|Feb 26, 2014

    It was deja vu for the Lady Raiders of Hinsdale as they thwarted Saco/Whitewater's attempt at a perfect 19-0 season by winning the district 3C girls basketball championship last Saturday evening at the Wolf Point gym just as they had done last year at Malta.

And...

  • A Little Short

    Quinn Robinson, The Courier|Feb 26, 2014

    Districts are over and both Glasgow teams are still standing. On the boys side, many didn't get the end result that they wanted, a District championship, but all is well, especially since Divisonals start at Glasgow High School on Thursday. "We can't ask for anything more," said Glasgow boys head coach Norm Braaten. "We have our own beds, our own food, a good draw." Don't forget the Scottie faithful. Earlier in the week, word started making its way around time encouraging Scottie fans to show...
