  • Dump Site Issues Raise Concerns

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Oct 3, 2018

    In recent weeks, T & R Trucking, contracted out to haul city garbage and transport containers from outlying dump sites to the landfill, have encountered some challenges. In one instance, a trailer camper had been left at an outlying dump. In another, an entire intact house deck had been left. In the case of the deck, T & R Trucking spent over three hours dismantling the deck in order to transport it to the landfill.

  • Being Served First

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Oct 3, 2018

    Do you remember the days when men were always served first at the dinner table? Of course, this was at a time when you served big meals at a large kitchen or dining room table. I do remember my Grandmother telling us on many occasions to let the men eat first. Of course, in our little part of the world, most of the men of generations spent long hard hours working outside. Maybe they were served first so they could return to their outside work quicker, or maybe it was just a MAN’S world. I wonder if this carried over to holiday meals and o...

  • A Thank You to Our Readers

    Michelle Bigelbach, Transplants Take|Oct 3, 2018

    As the nation celebrates National Newspaper Week, Oct. 7 through 13, I want to thank you, the reader, for making the Glasgow Courier a part of your week. For those who pick up the Courier at any one of our dealers, who stop in the Courier to purchase the paper, who read the newspaper online, who grab the paper from their mailbox, thank you for your support. When I started at the Courier two years ago, I was never keen on being a writer. I was more than happy with my job of answering phones, helping customers with their subscriptions, answering...

  • When Our Rural Communities Thrive, Montana Thrives

    Mike Cooney, Montanas Lt. Governor|Oct 3, 2018

    Montana’s rural communities have always been the backbone of our economy, driving economic growth through a foundation of hard work and a strong tradition of agriculture. In Montana, when our rural communities are thriving, our entire state thrives. Governor Bullock and I recently visited our rural communities to hear from rural Montanans as we tackle the issues facing our state. Farmers and ranchers described what is a “perfect storm” threatening Montana’s most important industry. When we look at what is happening with trade or with the Far...

  • Letter from the Editor

    A.J. Etherington, From the Editor|Oct 3, 2018

    Dear Reader, This week is National Newspaper Week, and, in honor of that, I wanted to editorialize a little about why we are so passionate about Glasgow, the news and telling peoples’ stories. If you go through the archives of the Courier, you can find stories that go back as far as the 1890s, and I would wager that there is no organization in the world that has cataloged the specific stories in our community as long and as consistently as the Courier. We are truly writing our history every week of the year and have been every year for more t...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dane Taylor, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 3, 2018

    Dear Editor, As the longest serving Sheriff in the history of Valley County, I feel the need to put some input into the job of Sheriff/Coroner. The Sheriff/Coroner has many duties: the jail, dispatch, civil department, coroner, search and rescue and officer of the District Court. To be a good sheriff, you must be a good manager. Tom Boyer has had 10+ years experience in the medical field in a hospital and home-health setting, which is more experience with crisis situations than most Sheriffs get in their term of service. He also has more than...

Joe sent me a tex...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Gwen Cornwell, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 3, 2018

    Dear Editor, I would like to thank all of the sponsors and hard-working individuals that worked to bring Heather McKay to Glasgow. I felt that her day of presentation to family, caregivers and others that have questions or concerns about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia was very informative.

  • End of Summer

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Oct 3, 2018

    It's official. Summer is over. We woke up to a light coating of snow this morning. Yuck, yuck, double-yuck! I'm never ready for the end of summer, but I'd rather ease into winter than get thrown in, kicking and screaming. The past week has been cold and gloomy. I miss the sun. I forced myself to get outside and work hard on getting my garden space cleared, and I'm glad I obeyed myself. Almost all the dead vegetation has been uprooted and hauled off to my "dead" piles. I left the sunflowers...
