    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Jul 11, 2018

The parade kicked off with American Legion service members Jim Tollefson, Bill Thayer, Justin Strommen and Chris Strommen walking down the street carrying flags and Cody Donniaquo singing the National Anthem. Cars from the Flatland Cruisers Car Club cruised down the street, throwing treats out of windows for children to run after...

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Jul 11, 2018

Lloyd was accepted into the Western Aerospace Scholars Program during his sophmore year of high school. This program provides opportunities for Montana state high school students to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) topics. Lloyd first found out about this opportunity through social media, and decided it was too great an opportun...

  • Milk River Inc. Bringing Back Recycling

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jul 11, 2018

    Milk River Inc. has told The Courier they have restarted their recycling program and have started taking corrugated cardboard. According to Michelle Eliason, the group has not started taking aluminum, plastic or paper due to the fact that the baler is not strong enough to handle those products. She hopes in the future the program can be expanded to include these items. “We are trying to do cans but the baler does not have enough oomph, and we are putting in a grant for a better one,” explained Eliason. She added, “We did take in quite a few c...

  • Tarragon and Beets Makes a Delicious Treat

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jul 11, 2018

    I have an abundance of the herb, French tarragon. When I'd first planted it a few years ago, I treated it like parsley: as an annual that I'd have to replant yearly if I liked it. So it was a surprise to find it is actually a perennial up here in Zone 3. Even tilling over it (two years in a row) failed to cause its death. Last summer I found it emerging in the midst of my green beans, so I dug it up and planted it on the northeast edge of the garden where it would be safe from the tiller. It...

  • Transplant's Take

    Tanja Fransen, Glasgow|Jul 11, 2018

    Dear Editor, Intolerance. The Holocaust. Wars. Terrorism. It was a common theme when I saw the Holocaust Museum recently (not just Jewish faith, but those who were gay, mentally/physically ill, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc). When I went to Arlington National Cemetery, it seemed almost ironic that the Confederate and Union Soldiers were buried on the same knoll. There are even slaves buried there. Death is the great equalizer, and none of us get out alive. I went to the Newseum which documented intolerance in great detail, starting hundreds of y...

  • Midwifery and Chocolates

    Helen DePuydt, Saco Stories|Jul 11, 2018

    Walking into our tiny living room before Christmas had become a yearly event for this older couple. There was a gift in hand which they presented to Mama and then relaxed to chat awhile. This pleasant-looking couple were no strangers to me as I had seen them weekly at Sunday Mass. Bringing an annual gift to Mama for some reason seemed to have significance. Living in the Depression era translated to living with the necessities of life and did not include boxed chocolates that my child’s intellect understood. Tea parties for some of the ladies i...

  • Heirloom Recipes

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Jul 11, 2018

    Our granddaughter, who will be college bound next month, asked me to write out a recipe for a dessert that I’ve made for almost 50 years. It’s also the dessert one of our sons asks for when it’s his birthday. After I wrote it out, I told her she may want to type it up and print it out. “No, Grandma,” she replied. “I’m going to keep it just like it is.” Her answer reminded me of a request one of our daughters made of me. She wants me to write down, on index cards, the recipe for many of the dishes I made during the years our children were g...

  • Sheep and Wool

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jul 11, 2018

    Sunday was a day of reviving old memories. We took a scenic drive to the North Country, using a few back roads, and trying to remember who lived where back “then.” I will admit we were prompted to make the drive when I made a comment about not remembering how to get to the John Richardson place. My girls were in the bum lamb business at an early age, and we often made a trip to John Richardson’s or Don Spear’s to pick up lambs. After a day of touring, I watched the Great Falls news and caught a segment on rising wool prices. Sheep and wool, t...

  • GCCL Provides Many Services to Public

    Megan Haddix, Librarians Corner|Jul 11, 2018

    Did you know that the month of July marks 110 years that the Glasgow City-County Library has been established? The historical background is that the people of Glasgow wanted a public library and reading room, so a meeting was called on Oct. 17, 1904. At this meeting, a Public Reading Room and Library Association was formed. A couple of years later in 1906, the city government passed Ordinance 42, which established and provided the maintenance for a permanent library, to be known as the Glasgow Public Library. A petition was sent in 1907 to the...
