    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Apr 12, 2023

    Spring finally made it's appearance to the area this past weekend and it couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time. Families were able to enjoy the Easter weekend with spring like temperatures and area kids got outside for the annual Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt at Hoyt Park, near the Glasgow Civic Center, on April 8. Though the ground was still partly frozen in spots and covered with snow and ice in others, that did not deter participating children from gathering up as many eggs as they coul...

  • Fully Fund Home Care Providers

    Apr 12, 2023

    Dear Editor, I live in Wolf Point where I work as a caregiver for my daughter, Mindy, who is now 49 years old. She just had a birthday and was only supposed to live for five to six years so every year is a celebration for us. Mindy was born with a condition called Spinobiffida and is totally handicapped. She lives her life in a wheelchair, and I do everything for her. I get 30 hours a week for her care, but that only covers half of the time I work with her. I'm not the only one in my community...

  • Easter Bonnets

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Apr 12, 2023

    Remembering the song, “In your Easter bonnet With all the frills upon it, you will be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.” I don’t remember our area ever having an Easter Parade, but I do remember the Easter Bonnets or Hats. I did not see any in the Church I attend and of course I did not wear one either. I do probably have a closet shelf-full of hats from by- gone days, but think back to your childhood and how many young girls were attired in new Easter clothing as well as a little bonnet. Maybe an Easter bonnet for girls just went with...

  • Multidimensional

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Apr 12, 2023

    I despise printers. They’re finicky, they’re expensive to run, and they encourage wasteful behaviors such as printing documents which could more conveniently remain digital. There is a type of printer however which I do have a self-professed soft spot for. It allows you to print objects, shapes, artwork; almost anything providing it’s small enough for your machine to handle. 3D printers are much, much more interesting, as with a 3D printer we’re able to do more than simply make physical copies of things you’re going to email anyway. Now way b...
