  • The Veterans

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|May 21, 2014

    It's a generation of soldiers, much different from today. In some ways they share things in common, the camaraderie, the stories of funny instances and the pressures of war. The World War II generation is slowly dying off as the years tick by. This generation seems to share one trait: They speak very little about their time in war. Two Glasgow WWII veterans took a special trip April 27-29. They were selected to go on the Big Sky Honor Flights. Glen Mahugh and Carl "Bill" Bell traveled with an... Full story

    Unlike some recent Glasgow School Board meetings, it wasn't a packed house at the first board meeting for newcomers John Daggett and Suzanne Billingsley, who won election earlier this month. But as Daggett and Billingsley took the oath of office to join the board, there were several handshakes and hugs as the previous incumbents dispersed and the new board members took their seats. Patt Etchart and Dave Irving were presented gifts and offered thanks for their service as board trustees. Allison...

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|May 21, 2014

    It all started with Steve. Steve Stebleton had been fascinated with the tanks, trucks and history of World War II for most of his youth. While he was part of a generation that followed, with his dad serving in the military just after the war finished his fascination with the era kept him interested as a young boy. He can’t pin down why his fascination started, or why he continued with the interest throughout most of his life, but his interest ended up spreading to his brother, Doug Stebleton. Doug explained that his respect for veterans s...

Diren Dede was “genuine, generous and a good friend”, seve... Full story

Does anyone have memories of using the potato peelings for planting? Maybe this started during the Depression years, when nothing went to waste. The cook of the house just peeled the spuds extra thick and planted the peelings. The household potato supply was p...
