  • Our Constitution is Clear – Let People Vote

    Jun 1, 2022

    Dear Editor, My grandfather Melvin Running Wolf was only 36 years old when all Native Americans finally gained the right to vote in the United States. Imagine that. Only three generations ago, not all Native Americans could vote in elections due to frivolous state laws that acted as barriers to the ballot box. Although Natives gained their citizenship in 1924 and states were allowed to determine voting rights, many states created laws with the intent to interfere with many people's right to...

  • For the Birds

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jun 1, 2022

    There are enough goldfinches and other birds in the yard that refilling the feeders is now a daily chore. Refilling birdbaths will soon be added to the list. So far I've only put water in one of them, the one that's a full-time fixture in the yard. It's the one not apt to be broken by hail nor freezing water, so it stays out year-round. The other ones (glazed ceramic and colored glass) still need to be brought out from the storage shed. That has been added to my "to-do" list. There was a bit of...

  • Electric Sheep

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Jun 1, 2022

    Snoozing. Slumbering. Catching some Zs. Sleep’s an incredibly important part of our lives and often one in which a lot of us will fall short either on quantity or quality. Technology as we know is generally seen as the enemy of this much needed rest, and rightly so. A technology professional myself, I’ve suffered first hand the effects of too much device time messing up my sleep schedule during busier stints. Is there a way though that we can achieve better, longer, more valuable shuteye through technology? Or has it firmly no place at our...

  • Impact Of Substance Abuse On Children Valley Care Coalition Chair

    Katrena Palmer, For the Courier|Jun 1, 2022

    It is estimated that more than eight million children younger than age 18 live with at least one adult who has a substance use disorder; that is a rate of more than one in 10 children, most of whom are under the age of five (SAMHSA, 2010). As many parents and professionals know, there is quite a large amount of development that happens from birth to that age. Living in an environment with someone struggling from substance abuse lays the groundwork for these children to suffer from a number of issues. Families with substance use disorders reveal...
