  • FPST Celebrates Golden Anniversary

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jul 3, 2019

    From wondering whether there would be a next season to wondering which shows to put on next season, that is how far the Fort Peck Summer Theatre has come in 50 years. And there is so much more to look forward to in the next 50 years and beyond. The theatre celebrated their 50th anniversary this past weekend, June 28-30. "So much has changed," Andy Meyers, artistic director, told the Courier. Though as Megan Wiltshire was quick to add, "So much has stayed the same." The weekend celebrated the...

  • Army Vet Joins Ranks at VCSO

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jul 3, 2019

    For Scott McCroskey the Army has influenced almost every moment in his life. So, it was no wonder that when he became a Sheriff Deputy in Valley County, he let that influence – and the lessons learned from it – guide his time in the position. "I had a Sergeant Major," explained McCroskey. "He would always say, 'Each day improve yourself, your troops and your organization." The newly minted Deputy says he tries to apply that lesson with modifications. Even though he has no "troops" per se, he tri...

  • Independence Day Has A Special Meaning for Montana's Small Businesses

    Jul 3, 2019

    Dear Editor, The United States is a nation founded by entrepreneurs who were, by definition, risk takers. In fact, many of America's founding fathers were small business owners who provided needed goods and services in the growing colonies.

George Washington was a farmer, a landowner and owned a distillery. Most of...

  • Farm Families Weighed Down By Stress

    Jul 3, 2019

    Dear Editor, Farm families are under increased stress this season, challenged by weather, trade issues, the farm economy and many other factors that are out of their control. Stress impacts our bodies in many ways and can result in symptoms such as increased aches and pains, changes in appetite, lack of sleep, anxious or racing thoughts, moodiness and social isolation.

    Helen DePuydt, Prairie Poet|Jul 3, 2019

    Around Christmas time 1921, when Mary Jane and her little daughter of Glasgow were visiting Mary Jane’s parents in Malta the two came down with the measles.

  • Largesse from the Garden

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jul 3, 2019

    Last week my column was entitled "Life Giving Rain" by the Courier, which is a very accurate title. Unfortunately, it's brought life not only to my desired plantings, but also to all the myriad of weeds that try to live here. When it's dry, the weeds mostly only grow in the rows, because the drip system keeps the water going to just the rows. But with the rains hitting everywhere, the weeds are coming on like gangbusters everywhere. All of the garden is turning green. There's supposed to be...
