  • Boyer Steps In, Strommen Steps Out

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    According to the Valley County Clerk and Recorder's Office as of Monday, Aug. 13, Luke Strommen had removed his name from the running for Valley County Sheriff. Strommen was unable to be reached for comment as to why he pulled out of the race. Strommen was placed on administrative leave on June 15, for an undisclosed incident being investigated by the Montana Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation. Since that time no update has been given on the investigation and no charges ha...

  • Local Talent Shines at NEMT Fair

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    The New Stars in the Western Sky Talent Show brought together people of all ages to watch participants showcase a wide variety of musical talent at the Northeast Montana Fairgrounds on Aug. 3. Kicking off the show was Nashua native and Scobey resident Lisa Garsjo Thievin, who has been performing since she was a young child. She was a regular at the Valley County Fair Talent Shows during the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, and has traveled all over the northeastern corner of the state playing country music for dances with her husband, Willie. Gar...

  • Meet the Face Behind the City's Ordinance to Allow Chickens

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    With the city of Glasgow's ordinance to allow chickens set for the first reading next Monday, Aug. 20, the Courier sat down with the person behind the push to end the prohibition on the birds in backyards. Madelyn House says that when she moved into her new house she was overly excited to continue on her tradition of keeping backyard chickens. Needless to say she was shocked that city ordinances prevented chickens from being kept within city limits. House said that a couple weeks after learning...

  • Updated Vaccinations from VCHD

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    In our Back to School supplement that was included in our Aug. 8 issue, it was incorrectly stated that 11th-graders are required to have three vaccines before entering school. Students who are entering 11th-grade are not required to have any new vaccines. For students who are 11-years-old, it is recommended to have the MCV4 (meningococcal) vaccine, the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine and the Hepatitis A vaccine. These three vaccines are not required for public school attendance through grade 12. However, many colleges do require the MCV4...

  • Why You Should Say No To Chickens

    Shirley and LeRoy Siefert, Glasgow|Aug 15, 2018

    Why You Should Say No to Chickens Dear Editor, On Monday, Aug. 20, 5:30 p.m., the Glasgow City Council will have a first reading of referendum 959, Chickens in Glasgow City Limits. At that time, there will be open forum for comments, pro and con. At that point, the council will take whatever next step is needed. On the surface, those that presented the pro chicken voice didn’t sound too bad. Cities that allow chicken coups in backyards and don’t seem to have trouble include Billings, Bozeman, Butte and Portland, Ore. However, these cities hav...

  • Carnival Cuisine

    Rachel Sigmundstad, Because Why Not|Aug 15, 2018

    Fair food is a quiet but integral part of fair culture. Concession stands run by local clubs and organizations assemble a staff of volunteers, create a unique menu and establish a temporary eatery that leaves a lasting impression in the memories of their patrons. It’s seemingly impossible to sever the fond thoughts of fair time from those of the enticing meals to be had there. At the 4H stand, I had a classic traveling taco. This is a simple dish that is convenient for events where you want to walk and eat. With something like a traveling t...

  • Remembering After School Days

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Aug 15, 2018

    School will be starting soon. Do you remember your after school time in your early teen days? I remember that many of the town kids gathered at the local drugstore after school. Can you remember peanuts in a bottle of Coke or Pepsi being the “thing?” Of course, there was a jukebox to play while you were being refreshed by this drink. I don’t remember that it cost us much either. Of course, a couple of you could share the package of Planters salted peanuts. I also remember that I would occasionally see my dad at the local implement shop on my...

  • Harvest Thoughts

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Aug 15, 2018

    This year, due to health issues, I wasn’t able to be at the fair as much or as long as I wanted to. I was able to see what my grandchildren entered in 4-H and their awards. Looking at all the entries, both individual and club, I was very impressed with the quality and detail of the projects. It was obvious that a great deal of time and thought went into the entries. As I made my way through the 4-H quonset, I was assailed by memories of when our children were in 4-H. I thought of all the work sessions they attended for some of their p...

  • Unshelved at GCCL: Positive Change

    Karen Anderson, Librarians Corner|Aug 15, 2018

    We are very grateful for the many services and positive changes we have been able to offer to the patrons of Valley County. The internet, mobile apps and devices have enabled us to reach many milestones to serve the community and beyond. And our services are free. We appreciate the many patrons that are responsible with the privileges we offer—for example, if an item is damaged, they tell us and we work out the replacement or repair of the item. What is hard to understand, and very disappointing to us, is when items are borrowed, but not b...

  • A Fair Appreciation: Looking Back and Looking at the Present

    Gwendolyne Honrud, Community Commentary|Aug 15, 2018

    Compiling the Yesterday’s Memories feature for the Courier has been a fun exercise in learning a lot more of the history of our area, and also an education in just how cyclical the news can be. So many stories from years ago could be plucked out of an old printing and dropped into a current one without issue, although some language updates might be needed. So it was quite interesting for me to read Gwen Cornwell’s Letter to the Editor in last week’s issue, and then come across a 25-year-old commentary from Betty Brandt questioning what had happ...

  • Livingston Art Show Featured Glasgow Artist Cathryn Reitler

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    Local artist Cathryn Reitler, who has since married and now goes by McIntyre, was a featured artist in the #MeToo: A Visual Dialogue group show at Green Door Gallery in Livingston, Mont. The reception was held July 27, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Reitler’s work was featured alongside Livingston artists Angie Froke, John Garre and Tandy Riddle, and Billings artist Jane Deschner. Gallery Director Lisa Snow recruited Reitler, after becoming familiar with the artist’s work from a previous show in Livingston a couple years prior. Snow herself is an own...

  • Running Hot and Cold

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    This is being written on Monday morning, Aug.13. After enduring several days of extreme heat, I'm searching for my sweatshirt and beanie instead of a tank top and sun hat. I had planned to pick green beans this morning. Instead of that, I'm going to bake bread (the bread machine mixed up the dough for me and I just shaped it into a loaf to rise while I write. I'd dropped the insert once, causing small dents, and now the machine won't make a nice loaf, but it still whips up great bread dough.)...

  • Golfers Brave the Sun and Heat for the Colbrese Cup Memorial Red Ball Golf Scramble

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Aug 15, 2018

    Under clear skies, and with a temperature of 84 degrees, golfers took to the greens Saturday morning, Aug. 11, at Sunnyside Golf Course for the Colbrese Cup Chamber Red Ball Golf Scramble. The threat of soaring temperatures, which would hit 108 degrees later in the day, wasn't enough to keep committed golfers from a day of fun with friends, good-natured competition, and of course, free beer. The first Red Ball Scramble was hosted by the Glasgow Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture in 2012,...
