    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jun 26, 2019

  • No More Relay

    Jun 26, 2019

We were no longer getting the support staff help out of the Billings office (didn't have that the past two relays), they no longer offer lodging and gas assistance for cancer patients that needed to travel...

  • Inappropriate Time and Place

    Jun 26, 2019

    Dear Editor, In May, we traveled to Glasgow for our grandson's graduation. While there, we attended the Sports Banquet and heard Jim Lockwood speak. It seemed inspirational in the beginning; with teachers giving him different wrestling techniques that helped him succeed. Then his talk took a turn and went into the wars, fatalities and demonstrations that occurred. Progressed into promoting his political position. In my opinion, it would have been more appropriate to have chosen a different...

  • Montanans Have Reason To Celebrate Our Outdoors This Summer

    Jun 26, 2019

    Dear Editor, As the long days of summer get into full swing, Montanans and visitors alike have begun to reconnect with our state parks, our one-of-a-kind outdoor recreation experiences, and the cultural treasures that define our state.

  • Life-Bringing Rain

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jun 26, 2019

    We’ve had some measurable rain lately, and so I’m avoiding (ignoring?) the garden for now. It’s still chilly with a damp wind. I know it’s muddy, and I really don’t feel the need to get taller by packing the gumbo onto the bottoms of my shoes. So, wonder of wonders, I’ve done a bit of housework. There’s still clutter, of course, because we live here. Our home will never be a showroom, and while I can be a perfectionist in other areas, I would never want everything in my house perfect at once. I’d find that stifling to my creative juices...
