Effective April 14, the new hours at the Port of Scobey will be from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the Port of Opheim and the Port of Morgan will be open from 9 a....

  • Shopko to Close

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 20, 2019

    Shopko announced Monday, March 18, that they will be closing all remaining stores. The move comes after Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings failed to restructure the company’s debt and save the retailer’s remaining locations across the north-central midwestern United States. Staff at the Glasgow store confirmed that they had been informed of the closure Monday morning. There are currently 30 full and part-time employees at the Shopko in Glasgow, and it is unclear if there are enough vacant jobs in the community to support such a loss. Acc...

  • Sheriff's Office, GPD Team Up to Go Mobile

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 20, 2019

    The Valley County Sheriff’s Office and the Glasgow Police Department have pooled resources to upgrade their electronic management systems. The upgrade will help the agencies go mobile, which, according to Sheriff Tom Boyer, will put the deputy offices in the streets and out among the residents of Valley County. The mobile suite will build off the current Zeurcher system which is already utilized by VCSO, GPD, dispatch and the detention center. What the new system and infrastructure will add is the ability for deputies and officers to work c...

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 20, 2019

    Valley County Sheriff Tom Boyer has appointed a five-year veteran of the Valley County Sheriff's Office to serve as Undersheriff. Chris Richter assumed the position after a lengthy search that involved the screening of eight candidates from around the country. Boyer commented on why the search had taken so long to complete, saying, "For me, it was really the most important decision that would affect the next four years, so I wanted to make the right decision." Boyer stated that he had interviewe...

  • Infrastructure

    Mar 20, 2019

    Dear Editor, Infrastructure is a conversation that is happening on the national, state and local level. When we talk about our state's infrastructure in the Montana Legislature, it usually means big money and big problems. During the last three legislative sessions, the Montana Legislature has failed to pass a comprehensive infrastructure bill that includes funding for critical projects in every corner of our state. It's not because projects being proposed are not important, or that the...

  • Legislature Gears Up After Transmittal Break

    Chelcie Cargill, Montana Farm Bureau Federation|Mar 20, 2019

    This week marked the first full week of committee hearings after the transmittal break. For the remainder of the legislative session the brunt of our work will focus on making sure bills we support continue to make it through the process. The exception to this rule is any bill which is considered a revenue bill. Any legislation with money attached to it has a later transmittal deadline of approximately April 1. While the volume of new bills certainly decreases after the initial transmittal deadline, we are keeping our eyes peeled for anything n...

  • Courage in a Small Package

    Rose Stoneberg, Prairie Tales|Mar 20, 2019

    The wolf shot near Glasgow was not officially acting like a wild wolf. FWP says that being near buildings, livestock, or domestic dogs is behavior more typical of a habituated or food conditioned animal, a released captive wolf, or a wolf-dog hybrid. In fact, I’ve heard they took DNA from the Valley County wolf to make sure it wasn’t a hybrid. Here is a true tale of wolf-dog hybrids. A rural community vet clinic doesn’t miss many local happenings. We immediately heard about it when an out-of-towner showed up and gave away a litter of beaut...

  • Some Things Forgotten

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Mar 20, 2019

    I was doing a little early Spring housekeeping over the weekend, which resulted in digging through some things forgotten. Do you remember when most homemakers treasured and displayed handiwork done by themselves or others? I remember almost every living room in homes of earlier days, displaying so many hand-crocheted items. The one thought that came to mind were the doilies always found on the back and arms of the living room couch. Those of us that do remember immediately know what they were if we are to see a set today. These were usually a m...

  • Still Influenced by the Whole Life Challenge

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Mar 20, 2019

    Since we've "sprung ahead" to save daylight for after-work recreation, can we please spring ahead into actual spring? We had some lovely ice fog last night, along with a dusting of fresh snow (again!). While it's gorgeous outside with the clear, deep blue sky, we are thoroughly, completely, definitely over winter. I'd much rather have green grass sprinkled with fresh dew than the icy cold glitter of the unending expanse of white that is our current situation. I know I'm not alone in this...

  • JJMT Brings Over 75 Teams to Glasgow

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Mar 20, 2019

    The 21st-Annual Jeff Jurgens Memorial Tournament brought a lot of ballers to town March 16 and 17. More than 75 teams were registered for the event, which translates into hundreds of athletes looking to win a coveted JJMT hoodie. The tournament is a major fundraiser for the Scottie Booster Club, and the logistics of organizing a successful tournament, especially a tournament as popular as JJMT, has to be challenging to say the least. Organizers are tasked with managing entries and fees,...
