    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 1, 2017

    The Assiniboine Sioux Tribe of Fort Peck asked Keystone Pipeline Developer Trans-Canada to consider rerouting the pipeline and to have three alternative routes planned, in what the Tribes said was a move to protect the water supply.

The facility distributes water through Dry Prairie Water to local ranchers, farmers and residents as well as to the reservation.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Barbara K. Hansen Glasgow|Mar 1, 2017

    I appreciate Sandy Laumeyer's call to end "internet ugliness" and to conduct ourselves as civilized people should while we are bombarded daily by bad news on the networks and our major daily newspapers. However, in our effort to be "nice," let us not forget to voice our opinions when we perceive wrongs and injustice occurring in our town, state, and/or nation. Tell your elected officials what you think. Protest when necessary. Protesting can be very peaceful and non-destructive like the many recent women's protests. Not everyone has the desire...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Rep. Frank Garner House District 7|Mar 1, 2017

    I am carrying a bill to proactively address an inexcusably high traffic fatality rate in Montana, and to reinvest in our road and bridge infrastructure at a level that minimizes the burden we leave for the next generation. We have broad agreement on the problem we face with our infrastructure, but a lot of smart people disagree on how we go about addressing that problem. I am convinced that the only way we guarantee consistent funding, an ability to meet our match requirements for federal fuel tax dollars, to fund the highway patrol, and to pro...

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Mar 1, 2017

    Saturday evening, I received a very pleasant suprise. A lovely bouquet of flowers was delivered to me. I have no idea who sent them. But whoever did, if you are reading this, thank you very, very much for your thoughtful gift. It has already brought me many smiles and most certainly brightened my days. On Sunday morning, I awoke to sunshine and the sweet song of birds singing. Though there is still snow on the ground, it even had a bright sparkle to it. To make the day even better, there was a potluck dinner following Mass. And after the...
