  • Building KXL Will Bring Jobs and Opportunity to E. Montana

    Jon Tester, US Senator|Mar 24, 2021

    When I disagree with my party, I defend Montana and say so. President Biden's decision to cancel the presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline was a mistake-one that I am fighting tooth and nail to overturn. Working Montana families are depending on the jobs and economic benefits that building the pipeline would bring, and we rely on the energy the oil that will flow through the pipeline will provide to heat our homes and run our equipment. And that's not to mention the much-needed tax... Full story

  • Seeds, Spaghetti and French Bread

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Mar 24, 2021

    The seeds for this year’s garden have been purchased. The seed catalogs were of no help - I’ve continued to ignore both the ones that came snail-mail and the daily barrage of emailed exhortations to have “the best garden ever” if only I’ll purchase their offerings. I shopped locally, both at the grocers and a hardware store. I’ve had plenty of good food grown from those sources. A couple of boxes of seed potatoes were even to be found. Since the extension office noted via Facebook that their seed potatoes were already spoken for, I snapped up...
