  • Valley View to Partially Reopen to the Public

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    Valley View Home will reopen their doors to the public on March 22 after more than a year of excluding open visitation to non-residents. According to Valley View Home administrator, Wes Thompson, the home is calling it a soft open and it comes with some caveats. Mainly, unscheduled visitation can only occur during business hours on weekdays, and even then, the visitors must check in with the office secretary before they can visit their resident. Visitors will be screened for symptoms, must wear a mask, must wash hands and can opt to be rapid te...

  • Judge Affirms HRC Decision on NorVal Electric Sexual Harassment Case

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    District Judge Yvonne Laird either affirmed or modified four key findings from the Human Rights Commission’s decision in the sexual harassment case of Shalaine Lawson Vs. NorVal Electric Cooperative in late February. In the Feb. 24 decision, Laird affirmed or reinforced every challenged aspect of the HRC’s findings that NorVal Electric and General Manager Craig Herbert sexually harassed Lawson, created a hostile work environment and retaliated against her once she filed a complaint with the HRC. Laird also affirmed the findings of emo...

  • Glasgow School Board Meets on Levy, Four-Day Week

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    The Glasgow School Board held their regular board meeting March 10. A brief deviation from the agenda was made so that the board could recognize the Glasgow Wrestling squad on their state championship before returning to scheduled business. The news most stressed by school faculty was the decision to not ask for additional monies this year, i.e. the school board opted not to raise taxes during the coronavirus pandemic. The board also opted to move to a four-day school week next year, with the option to return to a five-day week if negotiations...

  • Denying The Climate Crisis Will Only Make It Worse

    Mar 17, 2021

    Dear Editor, We all know what happens to the frog in a gradually warming pot of water. Too slow to react it eventually boils to death. Since the Industrial Revolution humans have been steadily turning up the heat in this big pot we call planet earth with ever increasing carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuel. Even hard core climate change skeptics are finding it harder to deny the harsh reality of global "weirding," as dramatized by the recent extreme winter storm in Texas where... Full story

  • Helena Tries to Circumvent Public Input on Wildlife Mangement

    Andrew McKean, Guest Column|Mar 17, 2021

    Every two years, tens of thousands of Montana hunters gather in community centers, school cafeterias, and church basements to comment on proposed deer and elk hunting regulations. It's Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' biennial "season-setting" process, and I'm eternally surprised at the passion and knowledge that hunters bring to these meetings. They push back against department proposals to raise cow-elk permit quotas by as few as 25 tags. They alternatively admonish biologists to cut back or... Full story

  • Public Shut Out Of Wildlife Decisions By Legislature And FWP

    TOM PUCHELRZ, Guest Column|Mar 17, 2021

    Montana hunters are being shut out of major decisions on future access to elk. The new approach in Helena, led by Speaker Wylie Galt and Fish, Wildlife and Parks Director Hank Worsech, is to spring legislation on us. Making major wildlife management changes without public input benefits few and hurts Montana hunters. I never thought it would happen here, but we must meet this full-on effort to limit public hunter involvement in wildlife management decisions if we are to maintain the title of... Full story

  • Gathering for the News

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    Do you remember when we didn't have 24 hour access to the news? Maybe the news was accessible many hours of the day, but most families gathered around the radio in the evenings. Some of you may remember the radios of early days, probably before electricity. A couple memories shared were radios using car batteries (makes me wonder just what size a vehicle battery was back then) or maybe a dry cell battery was used. Maybe that is what we need today, it might be less depressing to only have once a... Full story

  • I'm Back

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    Let me start with a quick apology for having been missing from the Courier for the past month. I really wasn’t procrastinating. Family matters kept me from even thinking about either gardening or cooking. I’ve noticed lots of geese flying north lately. We’ve seen several gophers out basking in the sun alongside the highway between Opheim and Glasgow. All these critters may be confused, or they may be correct that spring is actually on its way to rejoin us. The snow is rapidly disappearing from my yard and garden area. Of course, it could alway...

  • North Country Girls Bring Home State Silver

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    Coach Amber Erikson expected some tough competition from Roy-Winifred and Fort Benton at the girls Class C State basketball tournament and her Mavericks found it. North Country rolled over Garfield County, 66-27, before moving on to face Roy-Winifred. After a back-and-forth first half followed by an even second half, the Mavs won by a five-point margin, 43-38. The win sent them to the championship game against Fort Benton, who handed North Country their sole loss of the season, 74-60. The...

  • Bantam Ice Dawgs Place Third at State

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Mar 17, 2021

    The Glasgow Ice Dawgs bantam team traveled to Miles City this past weekend to take their shot at the state champion title. Though the team fell to the eventual champions, they brought home the third-place trophy in a 4-1 victory over the Missoula Bruins. Glasgow started the tournament Friday morning against Whitefish. The Dawgs rallied after going down 2-0 at the end of the first, but were unable to overcome the deficit and dropped the game, 7-5. Captain Connor Koski put his team on the board...
