    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Jul 13, 2016

    Rob Kompel of the Glasgow Department of Public Works had some key highlights from the July 5 City Council Meeting. In addition to normal operating agenda items for the city such as decisions on employee stipends and downtown grant applications, the Council addressed sewer and water increases, a new ordinance on cats and dogs, and the Army Corps of Engineers acceptance of the System Wide Improvement Framework (SWIF) Plan for the Levee. The issue of establishing a water and sewer rate increase of two percent a year over the next six years with...

Flint was asked how Gianforte and Robinson plan to help...

  • Independence Day

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jul 13, 2016

    This past Independence Day Weekend, I chose to spend the three days at home alone. This seems to come about as the years go by and we choose not to put on a swimsuit to enjoy the long weekend. Might be because most of us no longer have bikini bodies, but that is not the point. Anyway, The evening of July 3 I found I was exhausted after a long, hot day outside. Coming to the house I decided that my choice of relaxation was a hot shower and a glass of ice tea. The lure of TV, Facebook, or the Internet didn’t even suffice. I chose to sit with m...

  • Why Nancy Russell

    Mary Jane Bradbury, Acting Out History|Jul 13, 2016

    What makes an interesting living history portrayal? An historic interpreter is an artist, creating a living portrait of a person whose life was worthy and meaningful in the context of the time in which that person lived, giving audiences a glimpse of the past. The living history artist makes choices about what will be interesting and what will sell; and a great deal of time, research, supposition and intuition are expended in the process. Nancy Cooper Russell, wife and business manager of Montana artist Charles M. Russell, is hardly a...

  • Cowboy Cure

    Helen Depuydt, Saco Stories|Jul 13, 2016

    Editor's note: In the previous installment of Saco Stories, a character was misidentified as "Richard DePuydt." The actual moniker is simply "Richard," sans the last name (no relation). We apologize for any confusion. It wouldn’t be a regular day riding the range without dropping in at a secluded ranch house. In fact, not pausing for a neighborly greeting, cup of coffee, or whatever would have been a real insult to hospitality in the West. Settlers on the plains of Montana depended greatly on each other, and the virtue of hospitality was a...

  • Fighting Fire with Water

    Ginevra Kirkland, Black & Blue|Jul 13, 2016

    “Where there is hatred, let me sow love,” the supplicant pleads in the Prayer of Saint Francis, “where there is despair, hope”. When faced with an onslaught of murders last week, people took to social media and to the streets to express their sorrow, outrage and the unhappiness with the status quo. An instant, human response is fear and distrust of the perpetrators and people who look like them. We are collectively mourning and wondering why the shooting deaths of so many people happened, and demanding change. One of the most radical things...

  • On Guns, the Illusion of Control, and Deregulation

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks For Listening|Jul 13, 2016

    Since the early 1980’s there have been over 200 major publications touting the number of gun laws nationwide at the 20,000 figure. Since the early 1980’s lots of people have been killed with guns, singly or in bunches. No irreverence intended. Just the facts. And what good did all those early gun laws do? I suppose no one can say with any degree of certainty. If we had fewer gun laws would the killings have escalated? Would they have declined? Seems to me that each new piece of gun-trol legislation is presented or written by folks in gov...

  • Reds Lose Six

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jul 13, 2016

    GEORGIE KULCZYK THE COURIER Laurel 7, Glasgow 0 The Glasgow Reds faced the Laurel Dodgers in a double header at home July 2.

  • Thunder Competes in Glendive

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jul 13, 2016

    The Glasgow Kiwanis Thunder had a small group of swimmers representing the team in Glendive the weekend of July 9 and 10. Temperatures reached 93 degrees on Saturday, which always has the potential to sap energy from the competitors, as well as potentially causing heat stroke or dehydration. Additionally, a storm was predicted for the afternoon on Sunday, so meet organizers made some changes to the event schedule to prepare for possible delays or a meet cancellation. With just 18 swimmers making...
