  • Back–to–School Commute Awareness

    Jennifer Fuller GPD, For the Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    And then school was back in session. While we’re all still glowing with that summer tan, it is hard to get back into the swing of school schedules and school traffic, pedestrian and otherwise. Your Glasgow Police Department would like to remind you that these early fall mornings see a large number of young, often inexperienced travelers on our residential streets. Whether kindergarteners, trudging under the weight of a new backpack, running haphazardly into intersections, or packs of older kids, they present a precious hazard. Please keep y... Full story

  • Gianforte Concludes Listening Tour

    James Walling, The Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    Montana’s sole representative in the U.S. House has concluded a listening tour with stops at each of the state’s 56 counties. Congressman Greg Gianforte embarked on the trip, which covered over 3,700 miles across the state, after being sworn into office in mid-June. A Sept. 5 press release focused on wildfires currently burning around the region: “I commend the efforts of our firefighters under these difficult circumstances,” Gianforte said. “And I am committed to working for common sense forest management reforms that will mitigate the threa... Full story

  • Green Spaces in Rural Places

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    This harvest has been extra long for me. That’s because the crop is so poor we decided we couldn’t afford to hire our usual custom cutters (and we are sorry they are hurting, too) to cut a third of it for us. It’s just Dennis and me doing it all. We cut and fill the truck by noon, haul it in and have a quick lunch, then go back out to fill the truck and grain cart again. Sometimes we manage to get four truckloads in a day, but usually only three this year. (In previous years we would regularly get four, sometimes five in a day, but this year... Full story

  • Corps Instates Burn Ban at Pines

    Cindy Lott, For the Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Peck Project has elected to ban all open fires within the Pines Recreation Area.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Judy Hueth, Glasgow|Sep 6, 2017

    Hats off to Dan Miller and crew for the amazing work they have done on the Glasgow cemetery this spring and summer. Trimming and disposing of some trees and the removal of overgrown bushes has revealed gravestones that haven’t seen the light of day for decades. Although a work in progress, all these extensive efforts are resulting in a much-improved expanse and graveyard. We are very fortunate to live in a community that values caring for the grounds and graves of our departed loved ones. Thank you to our city government, taxpayers and c...

  • Before Plastic Sacks

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Sep 6, 2017

    Remember before Ziplock (and other brands) of storage bags? I still have a hard time throwing away a bread bag. I come from a generation that never threw anything away, as you might need it later. Plastic bread bags were a classic example. These were, of course, washed and dried for use another day. I remember many housewives used the cardboard roll saved from wax paper, etc., to roll these bags on. I am sure that others might have just stuffed the dried bags into a kitchen drawer for the next use. This, of course, was “before the green t...

  • What Will It Take?

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Sep 6, 2017

    I’m not particularly shocked at where we are in September. Seems like Congress checked out for the summer, and the world kind of chuckled like a teenager getting the house while his parents leave town. Just to recap some of the things that changed. North Korea demonstrated an ability to nuke the contiguous United States, and a desire to provoke Japan. They showed off ICBMs and tested a hydrogen bomb nine times more powerful than anything they have tested to date. Second, the western half of the country is burning down. Notably, one of the m...

  • In It for the Long Run:

    Angela Austin, Volunteer Advocate|Sep 6, 2017

    What would we do without the fire department? Do we know they are all volunteers? Sure, we’ve heard the words “Volunteer Fire Department” over and over, but do we stop to think about all that entails? I have a unique perspective as my husband and his son both serve on both Long Run Fire Department and the City Fire Department. I watch as this team of highly skilled dedicated VOLUNTEERS, work together in highly dangerous situations, efficiently and selflessly. They put themselves in places you and I would never go…all with the sole purpose...

  • Judging Political Etiquette

    Russell Fagg, Ask The Judge|Sep 6, 2017

    I have been asked “How can a sitting judge set up an exploratory committee to consider running for the U.S. Senate?” I think the question is asked because, to my knowledge, it has never been done before in Montana. When I started considering a new chapter in my life, which will include starting my own law firm, my lifelong interest in our country rose to the surface as well. I had three interests in mind. First, I wanted to finish this judge job well. After 22 ½ years of a job I feel very blessed to have had, I want to leave my court in good...

  • Scotties Win Chinook Invitational

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    The Scottie volleyball team played their hearts out and it showed as they took control of the Chinook Invitational held Sept. 1-2. Pool play on Friday kept the girls busy and overall the day was successful. Playing just a single game to 30 didn't allow room for much error, but overall the Scotties played hard and eventually ended the day 3-1 (Glasgow def. Chinook 30-24; Glasgow def. Cut Bank 30-19; Glasgow def. Highwood-Geraldine 30-17; Simms def. Glasgow 30-20). Saturday offered more traditiona... Full story

Individual results (girls):... Full story

  • Scotties Shut Out by Whitehall

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    The Scotties suffered a huge 54-0 loss in a recent pickup game against Whitehall. The game, which was held at Naranche Stadium in Butte on Sept. 1, was scheduled following the demise of Poplar's football program for the season. Glasgow's head coach, Greg Liebelt said of the disappointing loss, "We looked and played like a younger, inexperienced team - with seven new starters - playing our first game against a veteran semifinal team from last season with eight returning starters, without a doubt." Liebelt also noted that it's difficult to compet... Full story
