  • Valley County School Election Results

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|May 10, 2017

    Valley County schools conducted elections on May 2 for trustee vacancies and levy requests. In Glasgow, there was a three-person race for two positions on the Glasgow School board. Voters re-elected the two incumbents, Suzanne Billingsley and John Daggett, to three-year terms. Also on the ballot was the general fund levy to finance the district’s general fund in the amount of $71,273.83, which failed by a vote of 636-963. In Hinsdale, there was a trustee election featuring three candidates for two positions. Jared Albus and Keith Beil won t... Full story

    James Walling, The Courier|May 10, 2017

    Greg Gianforte came to town for a campaign event at Farm Equipment Sales on Hwy. 2 in Glasgow on May 8. Gianforte is the Republican candidate to fill Montana's at-large congressional district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The seat was vacated earlier this year by Ryan Zinke, following his confirmation as Secretary of the Interior. The aspiring congressman arrived with Senator Mike Lang and House Speaker Austin Knudsen (HD36). The latter provided a brief wrap-up of the legislative... Full story

  • A Closer Look at Gianforte: Debunking the Public Land Issue

    Michael Burns, Representing the Right|May 10, 2017

    Fake news would love for you to, poetically and with a decent helping of moral superiority, believe that you can forget the party lines separating Greg Gianforte and Rob Quist in this upcoming special election. Supposing a Democrat that endorsed Bernie Sanders and a Republican in support of Trump wouldn’t have any major differences, the idea of bleeding hearts coming together in unity sounds novel. The media has attempted to cast Greg Gianforte’s opponent as center-right in an attempt to win the previously Republican seat in Congress. To aid...

  • Wicks Wants a Win

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|May 10, 2017

    And so it was I found myself hating the Billionaire Tech Mogul who wants to hoard the world for his own benefit, and laughing at the thought of voting for the Cowboy Troubadour Poet going to fight consequential battles in Washington D.C. with a guitar and love first attitude. Neither candidate was appealing to me in anyway. I was beginning to despair that I would have to vote for the Montana Donald Trump or the aloof artist who can’t stand by his own views and commitments, but I digress. It wasn’t until I was reminded of the Libertarian can...

  • The Truth About Rob Quist: A Regular Guy's Money Problems

    Tess Fahlgren, Truth Nukem|May 10, 2017
    1

    If you’ve watched television lately you might have seen the attack ads against Rob Quist, the Cut Bank man who is running for Congress in the upcoming special election. I remember when I was little, campaign ads like that would come on TV and both of my parents would mutter in disgust – not at the content, but at their existence. The red screen and dark voice missed the mark. Out here we learned respect from childhood. Some men still take their cowboy hats off when they shake a lady’s hand. You don’t know when you’ll have to call someone t...

  • The Promise of Hope

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|May 10, 2017

    Life can change in the blink of an eye. I sure found that out at 12:50 a.m. on April 29. I had gotten up to find the lotion I use on my hands because they were itching so badly. I reached out to pull the light cord on the ceiling fan and lost my balance. Down I went. A trip to the ER and X-rays revealed I had fractured both the radius and ulna in my right arm. And yes, I am right handed. When you read this I will have had a cast put on my arm. Now on to my column. Everywhere I look I see the bright green of new grass peppered with the bright...

  • Extremely High Bison Numbers:

    May 10, 2017

    Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from Sierra Holt’s paper, “Reinterpreting the 1882 Bison Population Collapse.” The full text was presented at the 2017 Winter Grazing Seminar in Glasgow. Many sources indicate large bison numbers. Lewis and Clark are popular (Moulton, 1987); others include J. Bradbury in 1810, Edwin James in 1820, Jacob Fowler in 1822 (Hart, 2001), James A. Fisk in 1862, Captai Grant Marsh, Captain William T. Twining in 1874, and Lt. G. C. Doane (Koucky, 1983). For example: [Clark, Aug. 29, 1806] “I must have Seen...

    The Scottie sluggers notched two more wins this past weekend, bringing them to 17-1 overall for the season. On May 5, Glasgow hosted the class A Sidney Eagles and finished with an 8-1 win. The Scotties attacked offensively right off the bat, and defensively denied the Lady Eagles any runs until the final inning.

  • Scottie Girls Sweep Wolf Point, Hinsdale Meets

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|May 10, 2017

    The Scottie track team has been busy, with three separate meets held in the last week. The competitions began with the top ten meet in Glasgow on May 2. The meet weather was miserable, with wind, rain, and a significant delay due to lightning in the area. Despite that, according to head coach Tim Phillips, there were good performances. Two meet records were broken – Benji Phillips extended his already-standing record for the javelin with his 195-09 throw and Garrison Hughes of Sidney snagged t... Full story
