  • Letters to the Editor

    Mar 22, 2023

    Glasgow Police Department Dear Editor, In my opinion, the city police department is not doing their job. I formed this opinion based on a theft of some of my property. This is in reference to a theft I reported. One day, a few months ago my boat, trailer and 4-wheeler came up missing. I called dispatch to report this. A police officer came to my house here on the south side of Glasgow. I gave the officer a list of the items missing. I also told him I had an idea who took my stuff. It happened to be a local businessman. Not even a business man... Full story

  • Sugar Beets

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Mar 22, 2023

    With the closing of the Sugar Beet facility in Sidney brings to mind all of the sugar beet dumps located along the Hi-Line area. How many remember local train depots that had facilities for dumping beets for shipment, or the prisoners of war that were housed at the old airport facility. I understand that these “prisoners” were marched to our downtown area to be taken to the sugar beet fields to provide labor. If you remember sugar beets, you may remember one of the tools used in harvesting these beets, these sugar beet knife...

  • Power, But Only In The Sun

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Mar 22, 2023

    As we continue to add technology to our lives in new an interesting ways, we need to be equally innovative in the ways that we power those devices. One option, while not exactly a new concept but steadily progressing in its effectiveness, is solar power. We’ve been harnessing the potential of light to power devices like calculators for decades, how much more difficult could it be to scale it up and power larger stuff? Well as anyone who’s ever bought those barely functional, solar-powered garden lights knows, it’s not quite as simple as that....

  • Deja Vu

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Mar 22, 2023

    Here I am, complaining about the weather again. But I feel like I'm in good company on that front: who isn't sick of winter by now? Could we please have at least a full week of no snow, sunny skies, and very little wind? I'm sure all the road crews agree with me. But I guess that's been too much to ask for this past month. We've made too many trips to and from Glasgow on snow-packed, icy, and/or slushy roads. Our highway has been treacherous. (I'm aware through second-hand reports that it isn't...
