Some of the plans include improvements being made to three county roads that the company plans to use regularly in Valley County. These roads include Burns Road, Britsch Road and Bear Creek Road. Commissioners stated that the keystone officials stated there are plans to put man camps near Hinsdale located off of Burns Road and another one located 2 or 3 miles north of Park Grove,... Full story

  • Police Charge Man With Arson

    Dane Osen, The Courier|Aug 2, 2017

    The Glasgow Fire Department responded to a fire at the La Casa Hotel on Friday. When they arrived they discovered that someone had started a gas can on fire and luckily the flames were nearly out. The small blaze caused some damage to the building, burning the window casing on one of the rooms. The suspect, Melvin Thompson, had fled the scene on foot heading east, and was apprehended by the Glasgow Police Department near the Holiday. While making the arrest, officers discovered that Thompson had been drinking and was highly intoxicated. He now... Full story

  • GPD Reminder: Lock Your Doors

    James Walling, The Courier|Aug 2, 2017

    The Glasgow Police department would like to remind area residents to help reduce vehicle break-ins and property theft by locking the doors to property and vehicles. GPD Prevention Specialist Jennifer Fuller explains, “There is a common field of thought in policing that a considerable amount of crime prevention can be achieved in two ways: by changing the thinking of the criminal or by limiting the opportunity to offend.” “It is reasonable to believe,” asserts Fuller, “that there will always be another criminal ready to step up if one changes t... Full story

  • Letter to the Editor

    Sierra Holt, Horse Ranch|Aug 2, 2017

    Editor's Note: The following letter arrived in my inbox on June 28. The delay was unintentional. I was struck by a paragraph in the Wednesday, May 10, 2017 Glasgow Courier (Pg. 2A A Regular Guy’s Money Problems). “With the Upper Missouri Breaks National Monument suddenly in danger of being privatized, we need a representative in Congress who values our public lands. He has spoken out against land grabs and trusts Montana farmers and ranchers to know what’s best for our land.” I find this paragraph striking, because sentence one is in diametrica...

  • For the Love of Glaciers

    Josie Braaten, Casual Observations|Aug 2, 2017

    Being the bad Montanans that we are, my mom and I went to Glacier National Park for the first time ever only a few weeks ago. Over our depressingly short three days in the park, we hiked until we could physically go no further, practically crawling back to our car every night, yet absolutely gleeful about our adventure. Our routes took us to literally breathtaking glacial overlooks, through meadows of alpine wildflowers, alongside a family of bighorn sheep, to the source of exquisitely raging waterfalls, and through a honest-to-God fairy...

  • In The World of Trump

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Aug 2, 2017

    It comes as a surprise to me when I find that people I know and trust support the current state of the country. I try to pry information as to why, what things have been accomplished, and what goods have been done? But I honestly never get a straight answer. Mostly I get agitation that I don’t see it. I hear constantly that this is better than the previous eight years, but I don’t see how. The Republican administration has pursued a hated health care policy to failing ends. They looked petty and fool-hearted the entire time. Especially whi...

  • Thanks, Alexander Graham Bell

    Aug 2, 2017

    The absence of a telephone didn’t bother our family, at least as I recall. We were a letter-writing group, especially during World War II with two brothers in the military awaiting news from home. People walked not for the exercise but to their place of employment, shopping, visiting their friends, library, post office, school, church, you name it, we arrived by foot power. The sidewalks were constantly used and well maintained. Cars were visible but actually not many on the streets. Wartime gasoline rationing made a real difference. Early o...

  • Before Bottled Water

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Aug 2, 2017

    Do you remember before bottled water? Can you even imagine what our parents and grandparents would have had to say if anyone would have mentioned a business of bottled water! Of course, if it was a business, there would have to be a charge for it and just who in their right mind would pay for a glass of water? I am sure that plastic bottles were unheard of, and if you did have bottled water, it would have had to have been in glass containers. And my question is, would glass bottles be better than plastic? Would there be more recycling with...

  • Thomas James Miller

    Aug 2, 2017

    Thomas James Miller went to be with our Lord and Savior on Friday, July 28, 2017. He passed away in a tragic car accident, due to no fault of his own. He was born to Wesley and Sheila (Toavs) Miller in Glasgow, Mont., on June 12, 2001. He attended school in Nashua where he would have been a junior this year. He was a polite, fun-loving kid. He was a hero to his little sister, Kaitlyn, right-hand man to his father, and the light of his mom's life. He loved to make those around him laugh and... Full story
