    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Jun 14, 2017

    With children out of school, the travel season has officially started. Whether families choose to drive, fly or take the train to their destination, memories are made as families spend time together. This summer might be the last chance families will be able to take the Amtrak as a mode of transportation to make those special memories. Recent proposed budget proposals by President Trump show decreased funding for Amtrak, which would leave 140 million Americans without access. The proposed 2018 White House budget would cut funding to... Full story

  • Sing Along with Sunday Services

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jun 14, 2017

    I found myself thinking about Sunday church services the other day. Many changes have come about since my Sunday school days. My Sunday school experiences was not related to one church. Growing up in a small community, plus several moves during my youth, gave me the opportunity to become acquainted with customs of several different religions. Do you remember attending a Catholic service when you were expected to wear a hat, or head covering to church? And if you weren’t Catholic, there were other things that were different for the young...

  • Lang Details 65th Session

    Mike Lang, Legislative Report|Jun 14, 2017

    The 65th Montana legislature ended in late April by balancing a $10.3 billion-dollar- budget for the biennium of 2018 and 2019. My first session was in 2013, and we had about $550 million of general fund cash on hand.

A year ago at this time we had a balance of $343M. The budget is based on revenue and expenditure estimations. If estimations deviate then you are not balanced....

  • Thank You, Glasgow

    Michelle Bigelbach, Big City Views|Jun 14, 2017

    Two years ago this week, we embarked on our new adventure to Glasgow from Grand Forks, N.D. With a two-week old baby girl in tow, and a caravan consisting of a U-Haul and three vehicles stocked full with most of our belongings, we started the long nine-hour journey. Moving weekend didn’t start out very easy or stress-free, never mind the fact we were also moving a baby and all of her belongings. We started the moving process a day later than planned, because the U-Haul wasn’t available when it should have been, all of our belongings...

  • FPST, Hope for Rain, Lucky Clovers

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Jun 14, 2017

    Sunday was a delightful day for me. Our son, Carl, and his family treated me to the Sunday matinee of Arsenic and Old Lace at the Fort Peck Summer Theatre and dinner afterwards at the Gateway. The people who worked so hard to bring live theatre to our area deserve a huge amount of thanks.

So if you are looking for somewhere to take your guests this summer...
