  • West Nile Virus Destroys Lives

    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|Jul 21, 2021

    West Nile Virus, "will destroy you," warns former Valley County Sheriff's Deputy William "Bill" J. Soper. Soper nearly died when he was infected by a mosquito bite back in the summer months of 2013. "I was circling the drain," Soper told The Courier over the phone last week from his home in Centralia, Wash. "I had resting Nystagmus in both eyes, which indicated a brain injury. My brain swelled three times [its normal size]." Even though Soper pulled through, he lost his beloved job as a deputy a...

    Montana Cats Staff, For the Courier|Jul 21, 2021

    Sidney, MT. - The Yellowstone River is very low and recent temperature's have been unseasonably scorching. With those conditions unlikely to change over the weekend, the Montana Catfish Association Board of Directors held discussion early this week and took unprecedented action to protect the health of the fish during the event. For the first time in the 13-year history of the Monster Cat Roundup, the 5-fish limit was reduced to just 4 for this year's event. The change would allow anglers a...

  • Keeping the Water Flowing for Five Decades

    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|Jul 21, 2021

    The simple task of turning on a water faucet and filling up a glass is so ubiquitous one might forget the vast amount of work involved in getting it to the sink. For city of Glasgow residents, their tap water is sourced from the Missouri River. The raw untreated water travels via pipeline several miles northwest to the Glasgow Water Treatment plant, in operation since 1969. David George, Water Foreman, has been working at the plant since December 1972, and is an expert on making a perfect cup...

  • GPD Adopts New Motto, "POLICE," in Spirit of Community Outreach

    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|Jul 21, 2021

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Glasgow Police Department was forced to limit in person contact with members of the community. Now, efforts are underway to reverse this trend. "Basically, there was no contact with anyone in person," said Tyler Edwards, GPD Interim Chief. "We used the telephone. That is absolutely the opposite of community policing." There is a department-wide push for the adoption of Community Oriented Police (COP), which intends to open up lines of communication between...

  • We Have Water! YAY!

    Frank and Lin Vargo, Special to the Courier|Jul 21, 2021

    I received a message from Saint Marie's Water Manager, Rob Esaias, on Monday, July 12th that he had the water main fixed. A word of warning goes with this if you EVER have a water break. We were told to make sure you do not use your water filters right away and to run the water for awhile. This will clear the lines of silt from the pipes. We also had been told to make sure you do not run your water through your hot water heater until the water is running clear. Even though this was a... Full story

  • I'm Going to Make a Traffic Stop

    Tyler Edwards, GPD Interim Chief|Jul 21, 2021

    Traffic stops on the surface seem very simple and straight forward. From the outside looking, in these stops may appear as if someone did something inherently wrong or malicious. In general, the reason for stop is usually informative in nature for the driver. Traffic stops are one of the most dynamic things that an officer performs. One of a patrol officers' main functions is to inform the driver about improper driving behavior or defective vehicle equipment. These dynamic interactions are...

  • How Much Screen Time? Avoiding Digital Burnout.

    Richard Noble, Want For Tech|Jul 21, 2021

    The connected world in which we live is great, isn't it? Email in your pocket, books on your tablet, movies just a tap away on your television. But how much is too much when it comes to these marvels? Is there something more to that tired-eyed, slightly rough feeling we get when we've had a long day in front of the computer? For most of us, some amount of time staring at some kind of interactive device is inevitable. Be it through our job, how we keep up with friends and family or as a hobby in... Full story
