  • West Nile Virus: Use Protection. Avoid Infection

    Valley County Health Department, For the Courier|Jul 6, 2022

    West Nile Virus (WNV) is the leading cause of mosquito-borne disease in the United States. WNV is usually spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.

This constitutional initiative would have shifted the tax burden to Montana’s farmers, ranchers and small businesses while penalizing new homeowners, young families and seniors. I-191 would have subjected over 100 miles of the Gallatin and Madison rivers and their...

  • What Is A Gardener?

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jul 6, 2022

    Last week, while buying yet more plants from the greenhouse (there was a sale! Who could resist?), a gentleman recognized me and remarked upon my being there. He intimated he was disappointed to see me purchasing plants because “you write a gardening column.” That got me wondering if others think I’m cheating somehow, so I looked up the definition of gardening. It’s the activity of tending and cultivating a garden, especially as a pastime, or the practice of growing and cultivating plants as a part of horticulture. The definition of a...

  • So Cool. So Retro

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Jul 6, 2022

    They don’t make ‘em like they used to. Back in my day. Those were simpler times. We’re all, to some degree or another, a little guilty of harking back to a slightly rose-tinted version of something from our past. Before smartphones, before computers, before convenience. When it comes to technology there really is something to be said for recycling the joy you felt when first experiencing something; your first high score or when that first voice-activated doodad blew your mind. Were things ever really objectively “better” though? Are...
