  • Sage Grouse Not in Need of Listing, Feds Say

    Lih-An Yang, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell announced on Tuesday, Sept. 22, that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has determined that the greater sage grouse does not warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act. Lauded by many groups as an example of unprecedented collaboration among businesses, scientists, ranchers, government land agencies and environmental groups to conserve sagebrush habitat, this decision came after years of uncertainty that has worried ranchers and mining... Full story

  • A Little Patch of Pumpkins

    James Walling, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    Emily Rasmussen comes from good stock when it comes to pumpkins. Her family farm in Grand Rapids, Minn., is home to the sort of pumpkin patch that communities around the nation look forward to visiting annually-a place for people to pick out their signature gourdes and avail themselves of some autumnal fun. Strangely (at least to this newcomer), Glasgow doesn't currently have much to offer in the patch department. That's about to change. Along with Kaitlin Cusker-who grew up on Fox Farm...

  • Sunny Skies at Bjornberg

    Tess Fahlgren, For The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    The annual Saco/Hinsdale community picnic at the Bjornberg Bridge came off without a hitch on Sunday, Sept. 20. Under the shade of the cottonwoods on the north bank of the Milk River, a lasting tradition stood strong. A long table laden with dishes from every family in attendance split the grass. Beyond the spread of desserts, Mark and Mike Johnson served pork, beef and lamb with Bernie Hart. If the food and company are what draw a person to an event like this, it's the music that keeps you...

  • Busted Knuckle Brewery

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    I had the pleasure of reviewing the Busted Knuckle Brewery with two of my good friends, Tanja Fransen and Megan Haddix. We met at the BKB just after 5 p.m. on a Thursday. One thing we didn't have to worry about was choosing a place to sit – the establishment was nearly full and there was only one table available. The place was hoppin' (pun intended). Although the exterior of the building is pretty unassuming, the interior is welcoming and comfortable. There are two separate areas inside. In o...

  • City-County News in Brief

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    The Board of Valley County Commissioners approved the granting of $60,000 towards the repair of Skylark Road at its Sept. 16 meeting. The motion passed unanimously — though Committee Chairman Bruce Peterson expressed concern as to the source of the funding before casting his vote. “We should request a $5,000 loan from the golf committee,” he joked. “So long as you don’t schedule the repairs during the playoffs, that should be fine,” replied KLTZ’s Stan Ozark, grinning. In times of tightened purse strings, some find solace in keeping thing...

  • Checking in with APR

    Hilary Parker, American Prairie Reserve|Sep 23, 2015

    First, a big thanks to the Courier’s editor, James Walling, for agreeing to provide a forum for the start of this conversation. While the Q&A format has its limits, it has allowed us to get a good feel for the kinds of misinformation that is shaping opinions of our organization in Glasgow. And, wow, is there a lot of misinformation out there! For starters, you can rest assured that there is absolutely zero truth to statements from opinion pieces on these pages that APR received any kind of preferential treatment from any state or federal a...

  • The Limits of Discourse

    James Walling, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    We’re taking a break from Probing the Project this week to collect our thoughts, consider and reconsider reactions from the public, and recalibrate our approach to investigating the American Prairie Reserve and their plans for bison release and grasslands restoration. If anything, this pause reflects an attitude of seriousness from our staff, concerned community members, and APR representative Hilary Parker, who has graciously played along with the press despite hostile and skeptical attitudes about her organization’s goals from residents of...

  • Facial Piercings and Four-Day School Weeks

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks For Listening|Sep 23, 2015

    I have two subjects this week for your reading and or listening enjoyment. Controversial both but not too bad. One is this facial piercing craze and the other is the infamous four day school week. I’ll start right off with the facial piercing thing. Being born in late 1942 I recall pictures in the National Geographic of African women with bare upper bodies, images that have fascinated me through my infancy, my puberty and into my adultry. The images I’m referring to aren’t the bosoms. It was the pictures of the body and facial piercings that...

  • Letters to the Editor

    Sep 23, 2015

    Leave ‘em laughing I like the Op Ed page of any newspaper, but our own Glasgow Courier’s keeps getting better, yet Virgil is still my fave! Mary Honrud’s garden articles aren’t on this page but I sure enjoy them. Sandy Laumeyer tells of things that take me down my memory lane as well. Her last week’s “Just the Facts” column was typically Sandy: upbeat and positive in spite of the crisis she’s facing. And last but not least, Gwen’s piece reminded me of the custom combiners that came up north to Richland where I grew up. The time frame was ci...

  • Livestock, Pickups, and Stock Racks

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Sep 23, 2015

    Remember when most livestock was transported using pickups and stock racks? This was the usual method of getting horses to pasture for moving cattle, and it was likely you would see many pickups with stock racks at rodeos. If you had a couple of cows, bulls, or pigs to move to market this was the transportation mode. Trucks (the western terminology of truck) with stock racks were also quite commonly seen at the local sales yard. Then it became quite common to see a single or double horse trailer used for this means of moving a few head of...

  • Elsie Edna Jacobs

    Sep 23, 2015

    Elsie Edna (Math) Jacobs, 73, of Glasgow, Mont., passed away Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015. She was born to Henry and Edna Math in Havre, Mont. She married Wayne Jacobs Jan. 21, 1958, in Whitewater, and to this union four sons were born. She loved being a rancher's wife, canning, cooking, and crocheting, as well as participating in 4-H. She was preceded in death by her parents, her mother- and father-in-law, two sisters-in-law, and a step great-grandson. Survivors include her loving husband of 57...

  • Lillian Gregoryk

    Sep 23, 2015

    Lillian (Frisch) Thornton Gregoryk, 84, passed away peacefully at her home in Billings, Mont., on Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015, after a lengthy illness. Cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral services. She was born on Feb. 23, 1931, to John and Sylvia (Borland) Frisch on the family farm near Hinsdale. She attended school in Hinsdale and Glasgow. When she was seven years old, the family moved to a farm 7 miles west of Glasgow on the Tampico Road, where she grew up. She met and married...

  • Running Scotties Rampage to Weekend Victories

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    For Chase Hughes, the weekend was normal - meets in Frazer on Sept. 17 and Sidney the following day afforded him a dyad of opportunities to better his PR and challenge his fellow Scotties to do the same. For his team, though, and its sister squad one and the same, Thursday and Friday's competitions marked a decisive stride into the beating heart of an increasingly promising season. "We're looking pretty good," said Hughes, "we're all healthy, all good." Thursday saw five Scotties - Emily...

  • Scotties Leap to Top of Class 2-B Standings

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    Chalk up two more victories for the Scottie volleyball team. After facing conference foes Poplar and Malta last week. Those matches concluded the first round of conference play and the Scotties are currently on top of the 2-B District. All teams play each other one more time before the District tournament but seeding in that tournament is important so each match is important. At home on Thursday the Scotties worked hard for a three-game victory over Poplar, going 25-18, 25-18, 25-12. Tenacious...

  • Lady Mavs Split Weekend

    Virgil Vaupel, For The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    The new North Country Lady Mavericks traveled to Nashua to test the mettle of the Lady Porcupines and came away with the knowledge that the Porkie's "Mettle" was too much for the Lady Mavs to handle. Not that the Lady Mavs played poorly. I thought they played very well, indeed. After all folks, the second game didn't end until the score of 30 to 28 was achieved, favoring Nashua unfortunately for the Hinsdale/Saco/Whitewater fans. Casity Boucher earned my star of the match honors because of her...

  • Scotties Football Felled by Big Timber In Lewistown

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    The Scotties' 2015 woes were compounded by Big Timber in Lewistown on Sept. 18. The team made pointed offensive adjustments in preparation for what head coach Greg Liebelt had called a "winnable game" the Monday following last weekend's 40-0 defeat at Baker. "If we're going to get things going," he said, "this is when it's going to happen." The pointed ultimatum - the importance of which Liebelt stoked in his players' hearts through a week of gritty practice - must have flickered and died...

  • Green Spaces in Rural Places

    Mary Honrud, For The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    Now that we've had a light frost, we can enjoy a bit of lingering summer. Sometimes this is the best part of summer for us. Our harvest is finished so we aren't worried about hailstorms or early snows. All the fall chores can be finished without having to wear extra-bulky clothing for warmth. The summer fallow strips have been plowed. The combine is in the shop for a tune-up. When it comes back it will be stored inside until next harvest season. The grain cart will be put away for the winter....

  • Wheatgrass Gallery: Artist of the Month

    Mary Fahlgren, For The Courier|Sep 23, 2015

    He came into the gallery in the morning in a small crowd of regular customers. I thought they were together, or maybe he needed to pick up his laundry, but when I asked if he was a friend of theirs, she said she'd never met him. I looked closer and saw his hands were muddled with oil paint that matched the specks on his jeans. Rather bluntly, I asked who he was. He replied, "Paul Rolfes. I'm an artist, and I was told to come to your gallery." My curiosity drove me into conversation with this pai...

  • Glasgow Middle School Cross Country Teams Excel

    Sep 23, 2015

    GHS runners weren't the only ones who won big at Sidney Invitational. The Glasgow Middle School cross country team, both boys and girls, also took first place. While the seventh-and-eighth grade boys have dominated the competition this season so far, Sidney was the first win for the girls--no small feat for a team of only five. From left to right are Lexie Walton, Bailee Baxter with victory hands, Tyisha Bilger, Hannah Toavs, and Naomi Siverly.... Full story
