When Wes Sibley took the job of Fire Chief in Frazer and Wiota, Mont., last January his hope was to help out the communities he has always called home. Since starting Sibley has faced challenges and has taken each one in stride while looking towards the future to improve the service and help out the community. Currently Frazer has no fire truck and technically they are served by the Valley County Long Run Fire Department, but no truck presently exists in Frazer. As a result Sibley says they... Full story
Dear Residents, Recent surveys in Valley County show that people in our area understand that families experience mental health issues with a family member. The surveys also showed that a great majority feel that behavioral health problems should be considered in the same way we think about physical health problems- both can be costly, they need to be addressed, they do not diminish the worth of a person, they can be treated, and that there is help available in our county. Find out how you can help, or get help, and how you can be involved in... Full story
I’m not a cancer survivor. I’m also not a primary caregiver for anyone in my family who has had cancer. I’m from a large family and have found out that the longer I live, the more cancer is becoming part of my family, friends and acquaintances. When my mom was diagnosed with bone cancer a few years ago, it rocked my family. We had not experienced cancer so close and really didn’t know what to do. They live on the other end of the state, so I was not there for the day-to-day. That was my first experience of Relay For Life. I bought a... Full story
Cancer survivors are asked a lot of questions. One frequent one is how you manage to keep going. At times it is difficult to keep fighting. When I was having weekly chemotherapy treatments following my surgery, a friend was also in the process of weekly chemotherapy treatments. She was halfway through her treatments when she told me she was thinking of not continuing because they were taking so much out of her. I replied I was sorry to hear that but felt that she really should keep on with them. Once I had completed six of the 12 weeks, I...
Sometimes unexplainable events live in your heart and are told to grandchildren eager to hear yet another one of grandma’s tales. One of my South Carolina grandchildren asked for a story. I related to her about seeing the Electrolux (vacuum) salesman at the door. I invited him to come in and join my husband and me at our dinner table. After saying grace, our guest was not bashful about filling his plate with a ranch meal which nearly always consisted of beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, plus vegetables. This, of course, was topped off with homema...
As mothers might agree, being a mother is hard work. Balancing the life of raising children, working in order to contribute to expenses, keeping laundry caught up, dishes washed and a house livable, while also taking care of yourself and keeping relationships, it’s a lot to balance. I am lucky to have a partner in this journey called life to help me. Even with extra hands and us working together to keep everything caught up, there is never enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done. My to-do list is always six to...
Do you ever drive down 2nd Ave. So., and try to remember what business was in a certain location? I think of Buttrey, the grocery and clothing store, and wasn’t there a furniture store also? The old Orpheum theatre, Strom Logan, Farmers Stockgrowers Bank (or was it Stockman’s?). Friedl’s Menswear with the scale located outside the front door. Then we had Adrian’s women’s apparel, Newton Motors, and Glasgow Bakery. I lived in one of the apartments located above the bakery. What a smell to wake up to in the morning. The Valley Drug and...
Last week the Glasgow Courier printed two innaccuracies in their stories. In the first story, Boat Fire at Fort Peck Marina. We stated that the boat had been docked when it caught fire. This was clarified later and the boat was not docked but had pulled into the marina on fire and the occupants escaped at the dock. In the second story, NWS Warns of Gap in Receiving Severe Weather Alerts, we incorrectly stated that a phone can receive severe weather alerts by changing the settings to allow alerts. This is innacurate. A phone can only receive all... Full story
