  • Cowboys Descend on Opheim for Annual Rodeo

    Frank and Linda Vargo, Courier Correspondents|Jun 27, 2018

    Opheim is a very small town of about 88 residents in northern Montana, according to the 2016 count, give or take. Once a year, however, the population increases by about ten times that for the rodeo, which was held June 24. The Opheim rodeo begins with a parade, as all rodeos do, and people line up on both sides of the street. Riders on horseback carry the American flag, the Canadian flag and the Montana State flag as the riders go past up one side and down the other while everyone stands and...

  • A Final Bid Farewell to the Bonnie City

    Dionne Bradley, Glasgow, Mont.|Jun 27, 2018

    Dear Glasgow, Glasgow, Montana. It's in the middle of nowhere. It isn't some super pretty mountainous area with tons of trees. We live in the less known, less desirable part of Montana. In the summer, it is hot and the lake is at 25 degrees. The wind in the fall will destroy a trampoline in your own backyard. Winter is bitter and cold and the spring isn't much different. It is extreme and not all often very comfortable; but I don't think that is why we love Glasgow. Those are just the little...

  • Dear Readers

    A.J. Etherington, Letter from the Editor|Jun 27, 2018

    Dear Readers, It is hard to believe it has been over two months since I started as the publisher here at the Courier. Harder to believe is everything that has happened in such a short amount of time. Not only have we covered oil spills, meth labs, a packed commissioner’s race, a controversial sheriff’s race and we even managed to get the Courier on NBC Nightly News, but we have also painted, cleaned out some old stuff and started returning hard copy photos. It has been a whirlwind for sure, but we have tried our hardest to be timely, acc...

  • A Giant of a Man, He Was

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Jun 27, 2018

    When I was a small child, I’d look up at my father and think “He’s a giant.” As a grownup, I still thought of him as a giant. In many ways he was a man ahead of his time. He had a passion for learning, a passion he passed on to me. So often he’d tell me that my education didn’t have to end with my diploma from high school. He’d always say, “The day you quit learning you are dead.” Dad told me that people who accumulate material possessions just for the sake of showing off were never happy. Oh, they might tell you they are, but you’ll always fin...

Thank you to all who have put in, on their own time, the work needed to keep our current pool functional. Thank you to the city workers who toil on the equipment that keeps the pool running. Thank you to the lifeguards for making sure swimmers, of all...

  • Nostalgic Glasses

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jun 27, 2018

    Do you remember drinking your morning orange juice out of juice glasses that had colorful flowers, little animals, maybe cartoon characters and Disney figures painted on them? These were no doubt recycled glasses as they originally held various jellies and jams. I doubt anyone gave a thought to recycling, only wondered if the next trip to the grocery store might allow one of the younger siblings to have a glass of their own. If you were lucky, your family may have accumulated a half dozen or so. Sounds crazy, but remember this was the era when...

  • Weeds, Corn and Cookies

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jun 27, 2018

    We’ve been getting more rain, for which we are grateful. However, all that wetness means the weeds are really sprouting. The crops we want to grow are not the only plants thriving out there. So, while my husband is trying to get our wheat crop sprayed to kill those weeds, I’m out doing more hand-weeding in my garden. I do love my shelterbelt trees but I’m not so very thankful they drop lots of seeds. There is one tree with small serrated-edged leaves that have tons of seeds encased in a white papery disc that flutters nicely in the wind. They...
