Dr. Croft was born in Lovell, Wyo., and was delivered by his own grandfather, the town doctor.

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Apr 5, 2017

    The Cornwell family recently placed more than 15,000 acres of their ranch under conservation easements with the Nature Conservancy in Montana. By placing this land under conservation easement, they have ensured continued conservation of prairie habitat, while also making sure of a bright future for the historic ranch. Recent portions of the land placed under easement include important prairie wetlands with Aspen groves, which are critical to wildlife in northeast Montana. Rare strands of cottonwood also follow along Buggy Creek, which cut... Full story

Two other already placed AEDs will get updated batteries and pads, placing them in compliance.

    James Walling, The Courier|Apr 5, 2017

    The Montana House on April 3, gave final approval to a bill to provide two licenses to each of seven Montana tribal groups for the traditional hunting of wild bison. House Bill 108, sponsored by Rep. Bridget Smith, D-Wolf Point, specifies that such hunts must be done under traditional hunting and harvesting practices. “Montana Indians have an ancient, spiritual connection with the bison and these hunts should be a part of the state’s management of this majestic animal,” Smith said. “Tribal communities want to experience the age-old... Full story

  • Prom Problems

    Ronda Fuhrman, Valley County|Apr 5, 2017

    With only 3 days left until the Glasgow prom, my son's date, a senior student from Opheim, was informed that my son couldn't escort her this year because he is home-schooled. Apparently, GHS policy states that only students enrolled in a "public" high school are allowed to go. That is a very untimely notice as we have already ordered and paid for a tux, and I am sure the girl doesn't want to find another date. They were signed up over a month ago. Who would have thought that the school policy would need to be checked as a home-schooled friend...

  • Regarding Easter

    Justin Douziech|Apr 5, 2017

    In a few weeks it will be the days of Passover when Jesus Christ actually died and rose again exactly on the feast of First Fruit. There is a story in the Bible that tells us that Adam and Eve who had two sons, Cain and Able. Cain offered up a sacrifice to God of his best. Able also offered up a sacrifice of what God wanted in an offering. God accepted the sacrifice from Able. He did not accept Cain offering even though he did it with all his heart. Most of you celebrated “Easter.” Where did that feast come from? The name Easter comes from...

  • Coincidental Incidentals

    Michael Burns, Representing the Right|Apr 5, 2017

    Murky waters continue to cloud as information related to simultaneous investigations in the legislature are exposed. There is an ongoing investigation regarding possible Trump collusion with the Russians to influence the election and an investigation into the Obama administration’s monitoring of Trump up to a year before he became the president-elect. Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes, recently unveiled the bombshells that not only was Trump right about being monitored at Trump Tower but that fishy busin...

  • Remembering Vo-Ag

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Apr 5, 2017

    Do you remember when the Glasgow High School had a Vo-Ag program and a FFA team.  Glasgow still has some of those FFA members and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of those “blue jackets” could be found in closets or trunks.  I remember hearing young men commenting on particular skills that were learned during their high school years in the Vo-Ag program.  These were and are skills that they used for a lifetime.  I am excited to hear that Glasgow is actually considering offering this program again.  I think that schools might have...

  • Scottie Boys Win Opening Track Meet

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Apr 5, 2017

    The first track meet of the season drew 27 teams (215 boys and 145 girls) to Scottie Field, including one competitor from Riverton, Wyo. The meet was held April 1, and as usual, several proms were scheduled for the evening. That's only significant because several athletes were only partially focused on the competition for the day, and many of them left early for various appointments. That being said, head coach Tim Phillips expects an improvement in the team score for the next meet. Also typical... Full story

  • Bearcubs Did Not Disappoint at Season Opener

    Lewis Reese, For the Courier|Apr 5, 2017

    The Bearcub track team met in the school parking lot during the early hours of April Fool's Day to share their thoughts on the performances they would give later that day in Glasgow, where they would be competing in their first meet of the season. One athlete texted that they were just down the street and another texted that they would be a few minutes late. It was perhaps not the best start to the season, but one that set the tone for accountability of all track athletes. This year, as agreed... Full story
