  • In Support of APR

    Feb 20, 2019

    Dear Editor, Recently a friend handed me a Letter to the Editor written by Ed Butcher, a former State Senator, retired teacher, and outspoken critic of the American Prairie Reserve – the subject of that letter. "Read this, Stan, and tell me what you think," he said with a grin - knowing that I like what APR is doing. Mr. Butcher's letter was an attack on the American Prairie Reserve, a privately funded, tax-paying enterprise in eastern Montana's dry-land prairie. It isn't competing with a...

  • Invasive Mussels in Legislation

    Feb 20, 2019

    Dear Editor, If zebra mussels are allowed to gain a foothold in Montana waters, it could cost Montanans hundreds of millions of dollars per year. It might seem dramatic, but it's true-certain invasive species of mussels could do a massive amount of damage to Montana lakes, rivers, and water supply. And if we don't do anything about it, it'll be Montanans footing the bill. The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation released a new report outlining the enormous economic damage to...

  • Remembering History

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Feb 20, 2019

    “When the elderly die, a library is lost and volumes of wisdom and knowledge are gone.” This is a line I happened upon sometime ago and have thought about so often. How many times has an item crossed your mind and you have that brief thought about asking your Mom or Dad about it, or maybe an elderly neighbor? The sad thing is that there are not too many of those people left anymore. Not long ago I found myself reminding someone that Glasgow did have a bakery and was surprised they did not remember. The tables were then turned somewhat, as I w...

    Georgie Kulcyzk, The Courier|Feb 20, 2019

    The Glasgow Scotties faced a daunting task during the District 2B Tournament held in Glasgow ,Feb. 14-16. The experience for both the boys and girls mirrored each other, somewhat.

The game was light on penalties as well, with each team picking up just three each. Senior goalie...

  • Still Enjoying the Challenge

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Feb 20, 2019

    I’m sorry I missed getting a column in the paper last week, but I was away visiting our youngest daughter in Illinois. She’s also a cross fit enthusiast, and friends with a nutritionist. Therefore, she’s very strong on portion sizes, and having the right varieties of food on the plate. She isn’t doing the Whole Life Challenge, but might as well be. I didn’t worry about straying from the nutrition side of things. There was a lot of freezing rain while I was there, so for exercise, I hiked up and down the staircase and around the living ro...
