  • Capitol Tree Bound for Washington

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Nov 22, 2017

    Area residents got a chance to check out the 79-feet-tall Christmas tree bound for the U.S. Capitol Mall. The tree's escort made a stop at the Valley Event Center in Glasgow on Nov. 17. Local, state, and federal law enforcement escorted the tree in and out of town with sirens blaring, an honor usually reserved for Scottie athletes going and coming from state tournaments. Though most of the tree was covered, attendees were able to see the top of the tree through plexiglass, decorated with... Full story

  • Montana Dept. of Transportation Scraps Grass Range Round-A-Bout

    Michelle Bigelbach and James Walling, The Courier|Nov 22, 2017

    Montana Department of Transportation Director Mike Tooley announced on Nov. 16 that MDT is scrapping the Grass Range round-a-bout project. Bob Sivertsen, one of the leaders of the effort to stop the round-a-bout, was pleased. “The people really stepped up,” said Stivertsen, adding that people have been, “signing petitions in opposition to the ill-conceived, unneeded and costly project and MDT finally listened.” Sivertsen, along with Senator Mike Lang of Malta and Rep. Dan Bartel of Lewistown, rallied contacts, personal and profess... Full story

  • Thanksgiving Movies

    D.K. Holm, In Defense of Criticism|Nov 22, 2017

    Thanksgiving is not a time for movies. It’s a day for football. And eating. Lots of eating. And getting together with family and friends, and then maybe watching some kind of variety show on the tube late at night. Yet the few Thanksgiving movies that exist actually tell more about the reality of the holiday than you’d expect. Probably the signature Thanksgiving movie of the small group of them made is Jodie Foster’s Home for the Holidays. It’s another entry in that turgid American tradition of the contrived family get-together, most often s...

  • Wild West Revisted

    Helen DePuydt, Saco Stories|Nov 22, 2017

    While I was attending high school in Malta, two south county ranchers were shot to death in the men’s restroom of a local saloon. The wild, wild west was not of the past; it was in the here and now! During the same time frame, a north county farmer/mailman came up missing. His frozen body was found beneath a bridge north of Malta. It was a sad state of affairs, the victim of gunshot was a family man. Ever after that, the bridge was named after the dead man. Many years later, I asked a retired businessman if the authorities ever had a clue i...

  • Combat the Opiate Epidemic

    Aaron Olson, Community Health|Nov 22, 2017

    According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the leading cause of accidental death in 2015 was drug overdose. The life toll from the drug epidemic has been consistently growing over the past couple of years with opiate addiction and overdose being one of the lead causes. Each year, more people use drugs for the first time and wind up addicted. Right now, the highest number of opiate overdoses are in the Northeast. The problem originally started with heroin as the main contributor. However, newer drugs have begun to escalate the...

  • Talking Tax Cuts, Inflation

    James Dean, Political Viewpoint|Nov 22, 2017

    When Congress cuts income taxes, they increase your inflation tax in secret. This is like taking money out of your left pocket rather than your right pocket. Either way, you pay. When it comes to taxes, ignore tax rates and focus on government spending. Your taxes only go down when spending goes down, not when income taxes go down. Income tax cuts combined with spending increases creates massive deficits. Since people don’t want to loan money to the federal government at two percent interest rates, the Federal Reserve electronically prints d...

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Nov 22, 2017

    I think that this memory might be area specific, but do you remember when the three meals of the day were breakfast, dinner and supper? I have been made aware over the years that terminology can be very confusing. It seems the more acceptable terms are breakfast, lunch and dinner. Wow, this can cause a lot of confusion, and I have tried just referring to meals as breakfast, the noon meal and the evening meal. With Thanksgiving upon us, this crazy thought crossed my mind. Why do we refer to our Thanksgiving meal as DINNER? Almost everyone that...

  • Theatre Endowment Update

    Jody Sundheim, Arts Funding|Nov 22, 2017

    The Fort Peck Fine Arts Council, a 501c3 organization, has been dedicated to the maintenance and preservation of the beautiful Fort Peck Theatre. To accomplish this goal, an Endowment Fund was created, and professionally managed through the Montana Community Foundation, to generate sustainable investment returns used to fund major restoration projects. Past gifts to this Endowment Fund have been crucial in keeping this building looking as wonderful as it did back in 1934. This year, the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council has added an additional fund,...

  • Four Games, Four Wins for 14U Lady Ice Dawgs

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Nov 22, 2017

    The 14U Ice Dawgs had a successful opening weekend in Kalispell Nov. 17-19. They played four games and earned four wins – three of them shut-outs for goalie Elizabeth Nyquist. The games were held at Woodland Ice Center, an outdoor rink in Kalispell. The rink is almost the perfect setting for hockey games, with tall trees creating a canopy of sorts over the ice that amplifies the sound of skates on the ice and pucks hitting the boards. It is especially magical at night and is a favorite venue f... Full story

The Ice Dawgs... Full story

While the first game against the Bighorns was a runaway for Glasgow (17-0), the second game was much more balanced (5-2).
