    Dane Osen, For the Courier|Aug 10, 2016

    Prevention specialist Jennifer Fuller is one of several members of our local police department who have been representing Glasgow in law enforcement circles lately. She wrote an article titled Scottie Pride: Community Policing on the Hi-Line for the July edition of the Montana Prevention Coalition Communication Post. In it, she says, "With the current unsettled atmosphere between police and communities across the nation, a positive police/public interaction is more imperative than ever. The Glas...

  • Glasgow Youth Receives Make-A-Wish Dream Trip

    Denise Herman, For The Courier|Aug 10, 2016

    The Make-A-Wish Foundation recently sent Nikolas "Nik" Herman, the son of Mike and Denise Herman, along with close friend Benjamin "Benji" Phillips to Chicago, Ill. The group traveled from Williston, N.D., to Chicago on July 17 for a four-day dream trip that included some of the Windy City's biggest stars, finest amenities and grandest attractions. In March of 2014, Nik was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy, which resulted in end-stage renal failure; meaning Nik had suffered kidney failure...

  • Arguments Continue in Burns Restitution Case

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Aug 10, 2016

    In a continuing legal battle over money, Judge John C. McKeon heard arguments in an ongoing restitution case against the Dan Burns Estate. Burns was convicted of felony sexual abuse of children in 2009, and died in prison in 2014. Following his death, Maugeen McGrath-Stark filed a civil suit against the estate on behalf of her child seeking payment of court-ordered restitution. (See Abuse Victim Still Waiting for Restitution, Glasgow Courier, March 23, 2016). During the hearing on Aug. 2, Dan Flaherty presented arguments on behalf of the... Full story

  • Demolition Derby Sees Surge in Attendance at Northeast Montana Fair

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Aug 10, 2016

    Despite dropping an event and one Herby Derby cancellation, LeeAnn Walls described the Milk River Motorsports Demolition Derby on July 30th as, "having gone rather smoothly." Walls commented that originally they had planned to have the Herby Derby, the Chains and Bangs, and the main Derby, but due to only having a single entry the Chains and Bangs were cancelled. Nonetheless, the stands were near capacity as over 1,300 people crammed in to watch the event. Walls said this was a 500-person...

  • Counting on the Mail

    Chip Hutcheson, National Newspaper Association|Aug 10, 2016

    I got the mail today. A couple of bills. A greeting card. Some catalogs. A newspaper. One package that my wife grabbed right away. (Wonder what that was?) Lately, it occurs to me how completely I take for granted that I will get the mail tomorrow. I’ve had my share of gripes about the mail. As president of the National Newspaper Association, I have fielded our community newspaper members’ postal concerns all year. The mail is slower than it used to be. The U.S. Postal Service slowed it down by a day, at least, because of financial pro...

  • I'm Dedicating My Salary to Manufacturing Scholarships

    Greg Gianforte, Going For Governor|Aug 10, 2016

    It’s been less than a year since I first announced a potential run for Governor of the Great State of Montana. Since that time, I’ve driven over 46,000 miles across the state, meeting with Montanans in cafés from Ekalaka to Eureka and seeing my own bed only once or twice a week. One of the greatest joys has been staying with folks in their homes, rather than staying in hotels, because it has allowed me to really connect with families all across the state. During one visit, a young man in the Flathead told me his story. He was the first in his f...

  • Criticizing Her

    Mary Honrud, Sowing Notions|Aug 10, 2016

    I’m going to go all feminist here, and complain about people who are super critical of a certain presidential hopeful for her clothing choices. I’ve seen too many memes jumping on Hillary for her clothing. The color isn’t right. It isn’t flattering. The cut is wrong. It costs too much. It looks cheap. Where are the memes jumping on Donald for his suits? Oh, wait, there were those way back about his hair and his skin color. People, including other women, think that because a woman chooses to be in the public eye (politically, athleti... Full story

  • Prioritizing Rural Education

    Elsie Arntzen, Serving Students|Aug 10, 2016

    Our students deserve the very best education Montana can offer, no matter if they are in Great Falls or Glasgow. Unfortunately, the needs of urban population centers often get much more attention when politicians gather in Helena, while rural schools are all but ignored. That won’t happen under my watch. I’m running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction to serve all of our students, realizing that education is just as important in smaller towns as it is in our bigger cities. Rural communities face unique challenges, but the opp...

  • Vote No on I-77

    Fran Buell, Gildford, MT|Aug 10, 2016

    On Nov. 8, 2016, the electorate will cast their vote for or against I-177, banning trapping on all public lands in Montana. Public lands defined in I-177 as “all federal-, county-, city-owned land in Montana, INCLUDING public lands leased to private parties. Contained in I-177: persistent animal problems will be determined by fish, wildlife and parks, will use alternative methods of animal removal, including fladry, guard dogs, range riding, temporary fencing and/or relocation of person/property in a predator den area. This means the rancher m... Full story

  • On the Side of Working Montanans

    Denise Juneau, House Happenings|Aug 10, 2016

    For the last seven years, I’ve had the honor of fighting to make Montana’s future brighter as the head of Montana’s public schools. I’m proud to say that by putting politics aside and working hand-in-hand with communities across Montana, we’ve raised graduation rates to historic highs, creating a multi-million-dollar boost to our state’s economy. In fact, 58 communities are now part of Graduation Matters Montana, including Brockton, Frazer, Glasgow, Poplar, Sidney and Wolf Point. I’ve pushed back on federal policies that don’t fit our rural s...

  • Names and Numbers

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Aug 10, 2016

    Do you remember when Social Security Cards expressly stated on the front of the card that they were not to be used for identification purposes? It is hard to believe that we did not have to have that number memorized, and to have ready access to it for everything that we did. For all of you born in the mid-forties, you might want to dig out your card to see if your card does in fact state that it is not for I.D. However, I am not going to recommend that you tell your banker you can’t use this for identification, especially if you are hoping t...
