    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Sep 20, 2023

  • Glasgow School Bond Frequently Asked Questions

    District Board of Trustees Angie Page, For the Courier|Sep 20, 2023

    WHY NOW? In 2013, voters were asked to approve a facilities bond in the amount of $2,000,000. That bond called for the same Scottie track and field improvements that are being requested in this bond (as well as paving the High School parking lot, enclosing the commons area at GHS and installation of a turf softball field). That bond failed with 41 percent of 2,082 voters in favor of the project. Since that time, the Glasgow School District has kept this project in the pipeline, patiently waiting for a more opportune time (Keystone pipeline to g... Full story

  • The Upcoming Glasgow Bond

    Sep 20, 2023

    Dear Editor, My perspective on the upcoming bond: We moved back to Glasgow four years ago. It wasn't in our plans to make this move but we were blown away by the school environment that has been established here (especially compared to other places), the supportive community, and the hometown pride. Through foster care, we have given as many kids the best opportunity to thrive that we can. It is a big commitment for our family, but in the end more children have a chance to start their own lives...

  • The Upcoming Glasgow Bond

    Sep 20, 2023

    I'd just like to express my gratitude towards the Glasgow community. I grew up in Hinsdale. I played football for Glasgow and had more track practices in Glasgow than I did in Hinsdale for pole vaulting. Many Glasgow families, (Hartsocks, Kittlesons, Hughes, Remus, Riggins, Corys, Flatens, Krumwiedes... I could do this all day...), made me feel at home and always helped/watched out for me. Don't get me wrong, life is not only about sports, however, many life lessons are learned through these...

  • Glasgow School District Bus Driver Shortage

    For the Courier|Sep 20, 2023

    The Glasgow School District is at risk of having to cut more bus routes due to the bus driver shortage. In the past three years, the District has gone from nine route drivers, down to just four regular drivers. This mirrors the nationwide bus driver shortage. Starting Sept. 18, the Saint Marie route will be down to one very full route, driven by the Transportation Coordinator/Mechanic. Strategies employed this year to recruit new bus drivers include the purchase of an “E” Bus, which is used on the Nashua/East route and doesn’t require a CDL l...

  • Cowboy Sweetheart

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Sep 20, 2023

    Since it has been a few weeks since remembering and I have been traveling, not on the highway, but by air, I thought I would share another Burma Shave - Asked what he did for exercise Gallo, a Spanish bull fighter, replied that he smoked Havana Cigars. Now on to my trip to Missouri, I got to see a girl that I went to school with in the fifth grade in Missouri. We used to stand on our farm house back porch and sing “I want to be a Cowboy Sweetheart.” So, I shared with her just how silly and naïve we were. Sharing old memories is great and some...
