  • Survey Furthers Osteoarthritis Research

    Roubie Younkin, MSU Extension|Mar 21, 2018

    MSU Extension has teamed up with Dr. Erik Adams, a researcher at MSU as well as a physician who is a specialist in musculoskeletal medicine, to see if we can create better treatment strategies for osteoarthritis. Our goal in osteoarthritis treatment should not just be pain relief, which is of course important, but also making sure you are able to work and keep your agricultural operation productive. This starts with understanding the issue better, which is why we have developed a survey that we are deploying in ten Montana counties, including...

  • State, Local Candidates Speak to Packed House

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Mar 21, 2018

    After a six year hiatus, a large number of supporters were drawn to the Cottonwood Inn on March 16 for the Valley County Lincoln Reagan Dinner. Glasgow native Aaron Flint, host of the conservative talk radio show Montana Talks, served as emcee and carried a sense of positive energy albeit with maybe one too many Hillary Clinton references. In hopes of wooing donors and winning votes, the night featured Republican candidates looking to secure the Party's nominations for U.S. Senate, public...

  • Letters to the Editor

    Gwen Cornwell|Mar 21, 2018

    I have no idea how many miles of road there are in Valley County, but I do know that we are a very large county. I want to express my thanks to those of you that spent many hours opening and keeping open our roads during this last storm. Thanks to tractors and 4x4’s, my family was never “snowed in,” but what a great surprise to see the snow plow made a run down our road to the house, from the county road. Not only do we have a great path to the main road, it is now a wide path that will not blow shut near as quickly. I am sure I can exten...

  • Tariffs in Agriculture

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Mar 21, 2018

    A few weeks back, Donald Trump implemented a tariff on imported steel and aluminum that instantly sent the free market capitalists and agricultural community into a head spin. Uncertain as to what the tariff’s will actually accomplish, Trump’s economic advisor immediately resigned following the announcement after spending, or wasting, most of his tenure trying to block those exact tariffs. Not surprisingly, Trump ran on a nationalist agenda that included closed borders, torn up trade agreements, and U.S. industry protectionism. Some in the Rep...

  • Daylight Savings Time

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Mar 21, 2018

    Do you remember when we did not have Daylight Savings Time? I was thinking about the time changes when I decided I might need to wear a watch today. (When you are retired and in the house all day, it is easy to not wear a watch). That, of course, involved setting it to the correct time. It made me think of how many clocks we have that needed resetting that magic morning of time change. Since we have more than one clock in our house that needs to be wound weekly, changing time is just one more little thing. Yes, I do love my old things like...

  • The Local Value of Wilderness

    Andrew McKean, Valley County Voices|Mar 21, 2018

    Local input is a hallmark of democracy. Good laws should and do bubble up from neighborhoods, country churches, and bar stools, just as bad ideas are often killed by the folks who have to live with the results. That’s why, if you’re running for public office, it’s a smart idea to say that you’re in support of local decisions. Imagine the alternative: “I’m from the distant government and I’m here to tell you how to live your life.” You probably wouldn’t win many votes. But that alternative is precisely what our lone U.S. Congressman, Greg...
