  • Term Papers

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Mar 8, 2023

    Do any of you remember doing term papers in your high school days? I just found one that I had written all of those years ago. Even had a good grade on it! As I read through it I couldn’t help but think how much time it must have taken us to do those papers. Our small town had a school library but that was it. Some of us were fortunate enough to have parents that were able to afford a set of encyclopedias which were a great help but think how easy it would have been to do all that research today on our computers! I would hate to be a teacher t...

  • Raw and Real: Montana Ranch Families Share Succession Stories
