    Karen Bender, Glasgow|Aug 4, 2021

    There is a problem for We senior citizens earned and were promised our Social Security benefits after a lifetime of paying into the system.

  • More Books Needed at County Jail

    Dear Editor, I am writing you from Cell-Block-C in the Valley County Detention Center. We read your paper every week regardless of where we're originally from.

The food is good, too. One thing we all would like to see though is an expansion in the library department. I there a way to get some more books in our... Full story

  • Once Upon a Time in Montana

    HELEN DEPUYDT, Special to the Courier|Aug 4, 2021

    Mary Jane had quite a tale to share. At this time, she was residing in her home on Central Avenue in Malta. She was part Chippewa and proud of it. In 1921, while she and her small daughter - about a year old - were visiting during Christmas time at her parent's home, they both came down with measles. Black dots appeared all over their bodies. Mary Jane wanted baths for both of them, but her mother told her in her native language, "Dear girl, you must not give her a bath - she'll get very sick."...

  • The Work From Home Revolution

    Richard Noble, Special to the Courier|Aug 4, 2021

    There aren't many pleasant things we can take away from the recent pandemic. The ways in which it tested us were further reaching than we could have imagined. One silver lining to this particularly grey cloud, however, is how employers were forced to handle their workforce. Those who could work from home were suddenly allowed to do so and, as a result, we learned a few things. Chief among the learning opportunities is: dining tables make for terrible workspaces. In June of last year, the percent...

  • Berries and Beans

    Mary Honrud, Special to the Courier|Aug 4, 2021

    While we've had a couple of "cooler" (80's rather than 100's) days recently, we still haven't had any rain to speak of. The sky teased us with a few sprinkles last Thursday: we called it an 8" rain as there was 8" of space between raindrops. Laughing is better than crying which would only waste more moisture. Now, the brutal heat has resumed. It's a constant struggle to keep both the garden and the yard watered. Some sections of lawn aren't getting watered and look as bad as the rangelands. A...
