  • NE Montana Relay for Life Set for August 14-15

    Georgie Kulczyk, For The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    Relay for Life is more than just an event. It's an experience. It's powerful. It's uplifting. It's HOPE. The Relay began in May 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran around a track in Tacoma, Wash., for 24 hours. He ultimately raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society and inspired others to join the movement. To date, Relay for Life has raised over $5 billion to fight cancer. Northeast Montana's Relay for Life will be held at the Valley County fairgrounds in Glasgow beginning August 14 a...

  • Rocky Mountain Vet Brings Mobile Clinic To Glasgow

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    It seems that some of the people who do the most good in the world are also the most unassuming. That was my immediate impression of Dr. Jeff Young. Although Animal Planet premiered a ten-part series starring Young as Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet just four days prior to his visit in Glasgow, the compassionate vet was not the least bit "Hollywood." He was all business at times and it was clear that his priority was the care of the animals brought to him, but he also made himself available to his...

  • Community Heroes Day at Library Unites Public Service Branch Leaders, Educates Youth

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    Flanked by an idle airboat, three ambulances, and a police cruiser, Glasgow Fire Department's blood-red truck sits unmanned on Third Street South, its hard-hued exterior baking in the sun's midday slow-burn. The driver, Rob Brunelle, stands a few yards away, clad in a milk-white GFD uniform, among a group of the other rescue vehicle's operators. At their feet a group of 20 children ages 4-and-up, crosslegged and, apart from one boy who takes it upon himself to crush a half-full plastic water bot...

  • Hi-Line Hospitality Extends to Young Travelers

    James Walling, The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    Riding the Hi-Line as a freight hopper is a hit and miss proposition at the best of times. The threat of jail and/or harassment for repeatedly trespassing on railroad property is real enough. The physical challenges of spending one's days around masses of hulking metal where every surface is alternately hot and cold, dirty and bare, sharp and unforgiving, make this pastime a very serious high risk sport. It's dangerous. It's illegal coming and going. But according to the handful of adventurous...

  • Hinsdale Family a Brain Trust on Bison Release

    James Walling, Notes from the Editor|Jul 22, 2015

    Occasionally, as a reporter, you come across a cache of high quality information about a pressing subject of both local and broader significance. The immediate question is what to do with it. When it comes to the Stoneberg/Holts and the cast of regulars at their storied Horse Ranch south of Hinsdale (MT) at Timber Creek, the answer is clear: Share it, especially when it comes to bison. Ron and Rose Stoneberg and their daughter Sierra Holt are the sort of Montana conservationist/ranchers (around...

  • A Maple Leaf Falls in Fairest Fort Peck

    Beth Simeniuk, Flagging Respect|Jul 22, 2015

    Sometime after 12:30 a.m. last Sunday, July 12, on Millionaire Mile at the Fort Peck cabins, a person decided that a Canadian flag flown on private property was somehow offensive – even though it was being flown along with an American flag. That person snapped the Maple Leaf off its flag pole and took it. My husband, Don, and I, who were flying these flags, regard this as a hate crime, and he has reported it to the police. I don’t need to explain why we were flying this flag, but I will. I am American, raised right here near Glasgow. My husband...

  • Reason Behind Anonymity

    Horace Sence, Reader Commentary|Jul 22, 2015

    Mr. Vaupel, Regarding your “dilemma” about my signing the original letter as Paul Harvey, which wasn’t published: You asked what my reaction would have been if you would have told your readers (and me) you had received a letter from “the” Paul Harvey… and then went on to wonder whether I would have written, “Hey Virgil, you Dumas. Paul Harvey is dead. Or didn’t you know?” Even if I had your talent for that “causerie” (informal but intelligent) writing style of yours, I wouldn’t have disrespected you in that way in a public format, any more...

  • Do Cows Have Midol Days?

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks For Listening|Jul 22, 2015

    I was visiting with Bernie today as he combed loose hair off three or five of his 10 dogs. See, Bernie rescues dogs from the pound and people bring him old dogs to take care of. Mostly black labs. I have to drive (slowly) through his yard in order to get to Chisholm's alfalfa field to pick bales. Chisholm grazes cows there in the winter. He's one of several young Valley County folks who have graduated from MSUB with degrees in farm and ranch management and have returned home to work on or actually take over the family farm/ranch. twenty-five ye...

  • Legislative Update

    Matt Rosendale--Montana State Senator, Political Opinion|Jul 22, 2015

    I am sorry to say that today’s update brings no good news. When I wrote the Legislative Update on May 4th just after the conclusion of the Legislative Session I had explained that SB 157 (Tax Reappraisal legislation) had been signed into law by Gov. Bullock and that more than likely it would cause the real estate taxes to be raised throughout most of Eastern Montana. Those of you who have received your tax bill already know this to be true. I have had phone calls from individuals whose tax bill has doubled, tripled and even quadrupled! Many o...

  • David Henry 'Skip' Erickson

    Jul 22, 2015

    David Henry "Skip" Erickson, 67, of Glasgow, Mont., died at home after a tenacious but adventure-filled four-year battle with cancer. His was a life well lived. He was born on May 2, 1948, in Glasgow, to Douglas and Winnetta Erickson. He grew up in Nashua, with his parents and four younger sisters. From his early childhood, he developed a deep attachment to wildlife and nature. His teammates selected him as the captain of the Nashua High School basketball team. He graduated in 1966 as class...

  • Film Shorts: Valley Cinemas and Beyond

    D.K. Holm, For The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    Paper Towns is another teenage love story, in this case about a boy who sets out to help the girl next door, whom he has always loved. The film is directed in a conventional manner by TV director Jack Schrier, who previously did Robot and Frank, but the main attraction is the story the book author tells. Like Nicholas Sparks, Mr. Green is the real star of the show, and his films are almost actor- or director-proof. Therefore the characteristic theme of the film is Mr. Green’s. These are teens stories anchored with interesting themes, o...

  • Green Spaces in Rural Places:

    Mary Honrud, For The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    It's raspberry season! I always look forward to the first delectable berries from my garden. Every time I head out there to work, I'll be checking on the progress of the canes. Early in the spring I'll look for signs of life. I search for the green, having missed it all winter. There will be a few violas blooming (they seem to blossom under the snow). The rhubarb starts crowning. There are green blades of grass here and there (the first green grass is on the edges of the highway, using the...

  • Windows 10: To Update or Not to Update?

    Brian Gregory, For The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    On July 29, Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 (wait, didn’t Windows 8 just come out and now they’re already releasing another one? Yes . . .yes, they are). For users of Windows 7 and Windows 8, this upgrade will be free for the first year and then will cost $119 (for the Home version) afterwards. Many of us have already received a notification on our computers telling us to “Reserve your copy of Windows 10.” But should we update? I guess the better question is, “Do we NEED to update?” At the moment, not really. Windows 7 and 8 will be sup...

  • Reds Draw Curtains on Regular Season

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    The Reds wrapped up the regular season this week, sloughing through the ticker tape with a 2-4 record in their final six games versus Laurel, the Billings Cardinals, and the Billings Blue Jays. Glasgow split each of the first two-game series. In game one against Laurel, the Reds faced a brick wall in the form of the Dodgers' starter, who yielded just two hits in a complete game effort. Glasgow fell, 11-1. In game two, the Reds rebounded with a 7-4 victory, capitalizing on two hits each by Gabe...

  • Thunder Caps Off Regular Season with Fourth Place in Chinook

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    Chinook was the setting for the last regular swim meet of the season this past weekend. The Glasgow Kiwanis Thunder was represented by less than half of their team for the two day event. The team eventually brought home fourth place and had three high point winners. Dalton Sand, Trevor Johnson, and Katie Kaiser each won all three of their events in their age groups and received individual trophies for their efforts. The smallest group of competitors for the Thunder was the 8 and under girls....

  • FWP Seeks Public Input on Elk Hunting Seasons

    FWP Wildlife Division, For The Courier|Jul 22, 2015

    MT Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking public comment on proposed guidelines to establish elk hunting seasons before or after the existing archery and general rifle seasons. The additional seasons, called elk shoulder seasons, would be used where needed to reduce elk populations. “We’re looking at what tools we can implement to get elk numbers down in districts where we are over population objectives” said Ken McDonald FWP’s Wildlife Division administrator. A shoulder season could run from Aug. 15 to Feb. 15 outside the five-week general...
