  • Watching Trains

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|May 11, 2022

    Remember watching the trains traveling along the railroad track and always ending with a red caboose?I think that the caboose was used to house the crew or part of the crew anyway. I think this may have been a safety requirement but like so many things, technology has changed all of that. Our railroad crews no longer have to manually throw switches, however I think that this little red caboose often offered a nice little place for relaxing by an old cast iron stove that provided heat both for warmth and cooking. The coffee was probably always...

    For the Courier

    Forever Plaid is a popular and affectionate musical homage to the close-harmony 'guy groups' that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s, following a quartet of high-school chums in their cherry red '54 Mercury, and their earnest dreams of recording an album and appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show.

  • Another Gardening Session

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|May 11, 2022

    I’m starting yet another season of gardening. It must be the 47th? Because it’s stayed nice, I’ve finally tilled the garden space. It worked up very nicely. After my few hours running the garden tractor, I spent several more hours laying out the drip system and staking it down in place. The electric fence to protect the space from deer is not yet in place, nor are my pea fences. I’m still mulling over what’s going to planted where. I try to rotate things every year. Of course, there are perennials in my garden: the raspberries, honeyberry bushe...

  • Traveling with Technology

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|May 11, 2022

    After a long, long winter we’re finally able to emerge and enjoy the outdoors! Our eyelashes won’t freeze to our face, the simple act of breathing won’t be painful; truly have we suffered. But before too long we’ll be planning getaways and trips and excursions and generally enjoying all the joys which leaving the house has to offer. Something we often tend to overlook is what tech to bring with us to help plan and capture these memories. I for one, being someone who’s relatively technology-heavy in their life, tend to over pack in this rega...

  • Agricultural Stress In NE Montana

    VCC Americorp Worker Haley Genster, For the Courier|May 11, 2022

    No one is a stranger to stress and all the ways it affects our lives - even more so in recent years. The pandemic, recession, and continued cultural polarization has deeply impacted everybody- possibly in ways we may not fully grasp for years. However, not everyone had that global stress compounded with environmental factors like rural farm communities have coming into back-to-back drought years. As of April 1, the Milk River Basin, which covers 23,800 sq mi from southern Alberta to Nashua, is at 68 percent of normal precipitation and the...
