  • Tort Reform Lowers Costs on Small Businesses

    Commissioner Troy Downing, For The Courier|May 31, 2023

    Dear Editor, As the Montana Insurance Commissioner, I am often asked about high premiums in certain lines of insurance. One example is rising premiums in wildfire risk areas. This makes intuitive sense − if the risk of fire and loss is higher, the premium increases to ensure the insurance company can cover their potential losses. An area of insurance that is not always as obvious is liability coverage. In public policy, it is important the law addresses damages to someone when there is o...

  • Still Busy

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|May 31, 2023

    There's been a lot more work completed up here this past week, some in the garden and some in the house. And, of course, as mentioned last week, there's still more to be done. The goldfinches are voracious. I'm having to refill the feeders almost daily. We have eight set up around the place, but three of those don't see much action. The birdbaths (four) get rinsed out and refilled almost as often. As soon as I washed windows and installed our two air conditioners, it started a cycle of rains....

  • Yesterdays Memories

    Compiled by Reece Hunsley, The Courier|May 31, 2023

    1 Years Ago Wednesday, May 29, 2013 If you were in it like Glasgow was Saturday evening, the hail storm was bad. But only some of the areas were hit while most others escaped. Glasgow was subjected to a heavy downpour that turned into pea-size and larger hail after 7 p.m. Escorted by kilt clad junior honor students, they walked in two by two, the Glasgow High School graduation class of 2013, the white-robed girls carrying red flowers, the boys in red wearing white boutonnieres. The Glasgow...
