  • Give Us S'more BBQ

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Sep 14, 2022

    Smoke was in the air but this time the source was easy enough to locate – the array of BBQ grills in the parking lot across from the Glasgow Elks. The smoke mixed with the sweet and savory aroma of BBQ sauce set many a locals mind at ease and their stomachs a growl. Any risk of fire was easily negated by the mouths watering. A number of chefs and enthusiasts set up camp in the lot eager for a chance to win the 4th Annual Glasgow Elks "Middle of Nowhere" BBQ Cook-Off. Those chances were up to...

As a result of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, the building was able to get an upgraded HVAC/air conditioning system while their operating budget allowed the upgrade of their facade. The HVAC/air conditioning system project started at the beginning of July, replacing the previous units that were in the building since at...

  • National Assisted Living Week

    For the Courier|Sep 14, 2022

    National Assisted Living Week is this week, Sept. 11 through 17, so it was only fitting that Prairie Ridge Village was chosen as the Yard of the Week by the Glasgow City Council. The facility wins $25 in Chamber Big Bucks, compliments of the City Council, and will proudly display the sign all week. Assisted living communities where Montana residents live are so much more than just that. They are places where caregivers, residents, family members, and communities come together as an extended...

  • In Response To Damien Austin's Letter In Aug. 31 Issue

    Sep 14, 2022

    Dear Editor, 1. Federal approval to graze public lands was established many years ago, but was limited to production of domestic cattle, not bison. 2. Why is the Federal Government allowing grazing privileges for your bison? The return of bison to eastern Montana is American Prairie's vision. Your vision is not shared by many who live and work in the area you seek to change. 3. I don't know what laws you claim support your vision. (see comment number 1) 4. Finally, you specifically call your...

  • Homeless For A Night 2022

    For the Courier|ERROR

    On any given night, there are over 326,000 homeless people in the U.S., according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This is down from 2020. Part of the reason is that due to COVID-19 they did not survey all unsheltered homeless communities. Most people are spending the night either in homeless shelters or in some sort of short-term transitional housing. One quarter of homeless people are children. Tens of thousands are veterans. Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness. Many people are homeless because... Full story

  • But Is It Art?

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Sep 14, 2022

    But Is It Art? Artificial intelligence, as I’ve written in the past, is an exciting and powerful means of computers completing tasks which would previously have been impossible or too time consuming to be justifiable. Another more recently popular use for AI is the generation of images from simple text prompts. Say you’d like an AI’s idea of how a cat looks, you’d program it to analyze a set of photos of actual cats, then return what it thinks is the most accurate rendition based on that data. In the early days, this produced results...

  • Fall Garden Chores

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Sep 14, 2022

    As much as I hate to see summer go, it’s going to. I can’t stop it. And so it’s definitely time to be thinking of clearing up the garden. I’ve been pulling all the dead and dying vegetation. That mostly consists of flowers past their prime, plus the dill and cilantro that’s gone to seed. I’ve pinched off dead marigold blossoms and scattered them around my “volunteer flower” section. This is the area that is almost constantly shaded by the big tree on the southeast corner of the garden. There are many flowers I didn’t plant....

  • Should You Stick With Index-Based Investments?

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Sep 14, 2022

    You may have heard that you can simplify your investment strategy just by owning index-based or passive investments. But is this a good idea? You’ll want to consider the different aspects of this type of investment style. To begin with, an index-based investment is a vehicle such as a mutual fund or an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that mimics the performance of a market benchmark, or index — the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, and so on. (An ETF is similar to a mutual fund in that it holds a variety of investments but differs in...
