  • Fed. Judge Puts Parts of KXL On Hold-Again

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Apr 22, 2020

    Army veteran and Assiniboine-Sioux Tribe member Lance Fourstar's voice was being carried out over the prairie by a stiff westerly wind as he chanted a traditional Native American song accompanied by a drum and flute. The sounds traveled out overtop of the Keystone XL pipeline's border crossing from Canada as diesel engines revved and back up signals beeped in the distance on April 14. As Fourstar sang, an elder woman danced and played the flute, and a youth played the drums while the other...

  • We All Benefit From A Literate Society

    Apr 22, 2020

    Dear Editor, This letter is for Valley County taxpayers. I have been associated with Glasgow School District # 1 as a student, parent, foster parent and guardian for almost 60 years. Just think of how things have changed. Years ago we were going to school in shifts, playing our basketball games at the Civic Center, and our football games at the fairgrounds and now have some of the finest facilities in Montana. These improvements did not come free. You, the taxpayers, have continuously supported...

  • Passing The School Levy

    Apr 22, 2020

    Dear Editor, Let me start off by saying that there is no good time for a school mill levy. Bear with me, and I'll explain why I feel we need to pass this one. I moved to Glasgow with my family in 1959, and outside of a few years going to college, and four years in the U.S. Navy, I've never found a good reason to live anywhere else. I attended kindergarten through high school, found my career, married a great Glasgow gal, raised my family and retired, all right here in good old Glasgow. I feel I...

  • Leveling The Playing Field

    Apr 22, 2020

    Dear Editor, My wife, Laurie, and I are about to plant. It's our 44th year of putting seed into the ground just outside of Culbertson, on the banks of the Missouri. We're the third generation of Mattelins to do so on this spot. It's an act of faith and determination, planting, not knowing what weather or markets will bring. But it's also a commitment to our family, to our community, and our country. I've often thought that how we educate our kids is rooted in that exact same commitment-investmen...

  • Sunshine, Spring Sprouts and Soup

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Apr 22, 2020

    While the calendar says it’s spring, there’s still the occasional snowflake swirling down, at least up north. I wish Mother Nature would update her calendar to match ours. The sky is blue and the sun is shining as I write this Monday morning, and the temperature is well above freezing. What few snowdrifts remain are slowly melting away. The howling winds are assisting with that. Most of the seeds I started are sprouting, which is encouraging. However, some of the starter pots are showing no signs of activity, which isn’t. Okra was the first...
