    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|May 12, 2021

    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|May 12, 2021

    Ranchers, farmers, irrigators and Native Americans have given a resounding thumbs down to a planned increase, then reduction, in water flow next year from Fort Peck Dam. The augmented flows are meant to stimulate the natural spawning cycle of the Pallid Sturgeon, one of three endangered species found in the Missouri River between Fort Peck Dam and Lake Sacajawea. The other two are the Least Tern and the Piping Plover. Area farmers are worried about how the augmented flows may result in expensive repairs or retrofits to irrigation systems,...

He also cares for elderly aunts, aged 86 and 90, who live nearby the house his father, Jacob, built in the 1950s. Walking into Rauch's home for the first time, visitors will find dozens of clocks hanging in most rooms, tick-tocking away in perfect...

The Wolf Point track is also the site of the upcoming District 2B/3C Track meet this Saturday, May 15. Glasgow’s teams claimed top slots at the meet as the boys tie...
