  • HLRC Adds, Replaces Board Members in Malta

    Mark Hebert -Phillips County News, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    Following a nearly two and half-hour meeting with over 20 members of the public, The Hi-Line Retirement Board of Directors replaced three current members of the board and voted in a new member to fill a vacant spot during a private, executive session. Howard Hammond takes over a vacant spot on the board, Bob Ziegler replaces Bob Maxie, Susy Johnson replaces Rick Mikkelson and Michelle Smith replaces Ken Wiederrick. Mikkelson said nothing else was decided at the executive meeting. “Their goal, if I may say, is to do everything they can to k... Full story

  • Table for Six Expands Palettes, Dining Options

    Dane Osen, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    Chef Dyan Carlson has been wowing clients and patrons at Table for Six for the past three years. Carlson offers appealing meals from a wide variety of culinary styles and traditions, complete with an informal lesson on how to prepare them at home. It's clearly a recipe for fun, as many local devotees can tell you. Relying mostly on word of mouth and social media, her classes have a tendency to fill up quickly. Fair warning: Carlson's classes are aimed at adults, and colorful language is pretty... Full story

  • Law Enforcement Brief

    Dane Osen, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    The Glasgow Police Department is working together with the Billings Police Department in the ongoing burglary/theft investigation involving Adam Kelly. Kelly is currently being held in Musselshell County and GPD likely will be filing charges within the week. Citizens are urged to report any missing items from their homes and garages to the police, as only an estimated 20 percent of recovered items have been claimed. The majority of the thefts occurred on the lower north side of town, but there were also reports on the 900 block of 3rd Avenue... Full story

  • Grainery's Stockpiles of Wheat a Show of Low Prices

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    If you have driven passed the EGT Grainery near Frazer recently, you may have noticed the large piles of grain being stored in an open field near the bins. According to Tracy Sibley of EGT the piles are the result of a low demand for wheat oversees causing them to stockpile the wheat rather than ship it to their facility on the west coast. “Basically the worldwide market is flooded with wheat, and there is so much out there,” said Sibley. She discussed the global wheat market’s success with producing wheat this year commenting that usual... Full story

  • City Council Brief

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    Just following the opening and prior to the bustle of normal business at the City Council Meeting on Sept. 19 the Council voted to approve the City Volunteer Fire Department’s purchase of a 1997 Pierce Fire Truck for $145,000. Chief Brandon Brunelle told the Courier that the truck is in excellent condition and that the consulting mechanic they hired to look at the engine told him it was, “in immaculate shape.” Chief Brunelle stated that Pierce Fire Engines are among the best trucks out there and that this particular model was an “105 foot crank... Full story

  • The Glasgow 'Example'

    Elsie Arntzen, Serving Students|Sep 21, 2016

    In my campaign to serve as our next Superintendent of Public Instruction, I’ve made it a priority to regularly visit all corners of our state – a commitment that will continue once I am elected. All too often, politicians travel to the vote-rich urban centers of Montana, cruising up and down I-90 and neglecting the more rural parts of the state that are the very heart and soul of Montana. In contrast, I believe our more rural school districts are just as important as those with tens of thousands of students. It was great to be back in Gla... Full story

  • One-Track Recollections

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Sep 21, 2016

    Sometimes I have a one-track mind when it comes to remembering, so I will continue with more memories of early school days. A lot of you will remember starting the school day by being one of two that had been assigned the duty (or privilege) of raising the flag. Sometimes the assignment was on a daily basis and other times weekly. I know that the students had this privilege rain or shine, freezing cold, or lovely warm sunshine. I am sure that the same students were on duty at the end of the day to lower, fold, and put the flag away until the ne... Full story

  • Report: CMR Working Group

    Ron Stoneberg, Managing Management|Sep 21, 2016

    I recently attended a meeting of the Charles M. Russell NWR - Community Working Group (CMR-CWG) in Fort Peck. As I was driving home and thinking about all of the brilliant comments I should have made, it struck me that something was very wrong. The more I thought about it, I realized what the problem was. In my opinion, this working group is a non-governmental entity formed to allow stakeholders to brainstorm ways the surrounding communities could benefit ecologically and economically by working with the CMR---and vise versa. Most of us living... Full story

  • Standing Up at Standing Rock

    Maria Sugg, Down on DAPL|Sep 21, 2016

    I would like to voice my opinion - keeping it short and sweet - about an issue that could be catastrophic to our Missouri River and the surrounding bodies of water that flow downstream. Many are not aware of a movement that is happening right now to our neighboring state in North Dakota. The Bakken Oil company is now wanting to place a pipeline “black snake” that could run through Standing Rock Indian Reservation on sacred ground and burial sites in North Dakota, which could carry up to 570,000 gallons of crude oil a day downstream. When it doe...

  • Arguing the Minimum Wage

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Sep 21, 2016

    So when I consider the following realities I am overwhelmed by irrational emotions and I tend to overreact but here goes. First, how do we justify paying people wages they can’t live off of? Seriously, how many of you privileged people out there would work 40 hours a week at anything for $8.00 an hour? Trick question… none of you. The second, why do we allow employers to pay so little? If people have jobs and can’t live off their salary, where do they turn? Oh yeah, they turn to Uncle Sam for help. As a result, by allowing employers to not p... Full story

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dorothy Jackson, Former HLRC Resident|Sep 21, 2016

    On Board Members and Bobbleheads I know a little bit about boards... There’s the wood kind – a board, a slice of a tree. Then there’s a hole made with a bit or an auger, bored holes; bored people, like some 9th graders in algebra class; and finally, there are church boards or councils, boards for non-profit organizations like some hospitals, charitable foundations, and nursing homes. Oh, how could I forget the school board? They signed my contracts and checks and hired the boss (the superintendent) as well as my colleagues. I felt I neede...

  • Donald Allen Zeiger

    Sep 21, 2016

    Donald Allen Zeiger, 78, beloved father and dear friend, passed away peacefully in his own home on Monday, Sept. 12, 2016. He was born on June 21, 1938, in Minot, N.D., to Arthur Zeiger and Esther Olsen. He was the fourth out of nine children. He was raised in Nashua and graduated from Nashua High School in 1956. He was faced with tragedy early in life with the death of his parents at age 11, after which he stayed with aunts. He worked hard as a child and all throughout his life. In his younger...

  • Shirley Ann Hoverson

    Sep 21, 2016

    Shirley Ann (Lloyd) Hoverson, 81, died peacefully at the Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. She was born on Sept. 9, 1935, in Circle, Mont., to Andy and Hazel Lloyd. She married Bill Hoverson and out of that marriage they had two children, Jimmy and Roxann. She was a strong woman who will be missed by many. She was preceded in death by seven sisters, Dorthy, Fuzzy, Gladys, Mert, Bridgie, Bev and Myrna Kay, who burned in a house fire at age 2. Survivors include one...

  • Big Red Blanks Big Timber

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    The Scotties suited up for their 2016 homecoming game vs. the Big Timber Sheepherders on Sept. 16. Before the evening was over, the cheerleaders were worn out from doing jumping jacks, and the cannon had nearly depleted the supply of gun powder in Valley County. Early in the first quarter, starting quarterback Darrin Wersal got the ball to Luke Breigenzer who ran it in for a 23-yard touchdown. Benji Phillips followed the TD with a successful two-point conversion run. Score: 8-0. The score... Full story

  • Scotties Serve Up Two Shut-Outs

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2016

    Two big wins this past homecoming weekend catapulted the Scottie volleyball team into a solid 4-0 first-place standing at the conclusion of the first round of their conference season. On Sept. 8, a three-set victory over a determined M-ette team showcased a lot of poise on the GHS side of the net. Even in the face of adversity, the Scotties maintained emotional control, a positive aspect the team has been actively striving for all season, and were able to complete the task of pushing through to... Full story

  • Listen to the Quiet: Part 4

    Helen Depuydt, Saco Stories|Sep 21, 2016

    Religion played an important part in the community life of the homesteaders. The Kienitzes belonged to the Lutheran congregation, which met once monthly at the Gus Pehlke home, beginning in 1916. Members would take turns meeting Pastor A. Jordan at Saco, where he arrived by skidoo. Pastor Jordon was stationed at Chinook and was single at this time. He was silent about possible romantic attachments and his congregation might have been in the dark to this day if it hadn’t been for Mark Wright’s sheepherder’s weekly Chinook newspaper. One Sunda... Full story
