  • Should Estate Plans Be Equal Or Fair?

    Edward Jones Financial Advisor CFP Arron Franzen, For the Courier|May 15, 2024

    When you’re creating your estate plan and thinking of where you want your assets to go, you also may be thinking about how to be fair to your loved ones — but is that the same as treating everyone equally? In estate planning, “equal” doesn’t always mean “fair.” If you have grown children with different financial needs, you might think it’s unfair to leave them the same amounts. Or if you have a family business, and one of your children is ready to assume control, you might want to leave the business to that child and compensate the other sibli...

  • Birbs!

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|May 15, 2024

    While we live far from the ‘burbs, we do seem to live in “birb” central. I believe all our feathered friends are back for the summer. I’m really glad I talked about getting the other two bird feeders cleaned in last weeks’ column. I set them out with fresh grape jelly plus a clementine cut in half a few days ago. Two days ago, a rosy-breasted grosbeak showed up to study those feeders, and to help himself to the regular bird seed. He tried to get through the living room window to the red blossoms on the geranium. Today (Mother’s Day) we had...

    1 Years Ago Wednesday, May 14, 2014 The highway is getting wider between Nashua and Fort Peck. Residents from Nashua to Fort Peck might have received a knock on the door recently.

  • Scottie Golf Teams Win Northern B Divisional

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|May 15, 2024

    The Scottie boys and girls golf teams claimed the top spots at the Northern B Divisional held at Sunnyside May 6 after weather prevented the event from being held May 9. Play began Monday morning in hopes of beating the rain. The Northern B teams managed nine holes before the incoming storm hit that afternoon. Unfortunately the rain made play that afternoon impossible, and standing rain on the course the following day made playing the second nine holes unfeasible as well. The MHSA made the call...

  • Holt Runs Fastest Two-Mile In Hinsdale's History

    Sierra Stoneberg Holt, For the Courier|May 15, 2024

    In 2020, a nervous freshman entered the halls of Hinsdale High School. Zora Rose Holt had received her kindergarten to eighth grade education at home school, a one-room school, and even an exciting quarter in an elementary school in the Czech Republic, so Hinsdale felt big, foreign, and overwhelming. She was taken under the wing of the great Kaitlyn McColly, a familiar face from the 4-H club she'd belonged to since she was seven. It will come as no surprise to anyone that one of the things...
