  • Just Let It Rain - or Snow - Already!

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Apr 13, 2022

    The past week's rain and snow throughout Valley County was welcomed and even elicited comments such as "Thank goodness for this rain!" "I don't like snow this time of year but it's better than nothing!" and "We need all of the moisture we can get!" throughout the community. According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Glasgow, every little bit of moisture helps, but it would sure be helpful if Mother Nature did even more.

  • CI-121

    Apr 13, 2022

    Dear Editor, Constitutional Initiative 121 or CI-121 is a proposed initiative petition currently circulating to gather enough signatures to qualify for the ballot this November.

  • Product of the USA Label Controversy

    Apr 13, 2022

    Dear Editor, In March of 2020 the USDA made a statement that the present definition of the Product in USA label was confusing consumers.

At present, simply repackaging imported beef once it enters the USA allows this product to carry the Product of USA label. There is proposed legislation in Congress that seeks to redefine this voluntary label to be used only on products from...

  • Stockwater Rights Vs. The WWF's Plans

Emails, via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), detailed the cozy relationship between the Bullock administration and the APR. Now two former members of the Bullock administration are heading the...

  • Encryption, For Everyone, Everywhere.

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Apr 13, 2022

    Thankfully, the days of it being cool to demonize technology in a blanket fashion are coming to an end. Even over the course of my career, things have shifted and people have realized that it’s much more useful as a tool for productivity, learning and even to help us d-estress. Few things bring as much joy as a YouTube video of a talking husky. There is something brewing however which does cast somewhat of a shadow on this progress. It protects our privacy when we communicate with others, enables the secure sharing of files and keeps prying eye...

  • Kvetching – Again

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Apr 13, 2022

    Since I'm using the word "kvetch" for my continuing bellyaching about the wind, I decided I should have more information about it. Kvetch in Yiddish means "to press" or "to squeeze" (which is what I do with a slice of lemon into my morning tea) but has come to mean "to complain" to us non-Yiddish speakers. You can be a kvetch or you can do it. Occasionally I'm guilty of both. At least, I hope it's only occasionally and not often! If it's too often, feel free to kvetch at me. We've had another...
