    The Glasgow High School drama students and their advisors, Shyanne Wallace and Lizzie Peters, have been hard at work this year to revamp, redesign, reorganize and update the Glasgow High School auditorium, not only for their own sakes but also for future generations of Glasgow Scotties.

  • Regarding The School Bond

    Oct 4, 2023

    Dear Editor, What is Glasgow School District In Debt status? When you go to a bank for a loan you have to show security and what you owe. What does our school district owe?

  • On The Upcoming Bond

    Oct 4, 2023

    Dear Editor, One of my favorite quotes, a personal hero of mine, is attributed to the late Theodore Roosevelt, when he stated, "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." Our family decided to move back to Glasgow with the confidence in our community to have the desire to move forward and evolve without sacrificing the values which are held so near and dear to many. Part of this...

  • Eliminating Barriers and Creating A Pathway to Early Breast Cancer Treatment

    Oct 4, 2023

    Dear Editor, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held in October with the aim of promoting screening and prevention of the disease. Also, effective October 1, is a new law which eliminates barriers to breast cancer diagnosis and provides a pathway to early treatment, without increasing your premiums. With 20 years as a physician's assistant, I saw it play out time and time again – the cost of additional imaging studies prevented patients from getting the breast ultrasound or MRI they needed to d...

  • Thanking Tow Truck Drivers

    Oct 4, 2023

    As a past paramedic/firefighter I want to acknowledge another first responder that is rarely recognized or thanked. Recently one of our County Newspaper articles had a thank you given only to the police, fire and ambulance. We do not seem to value our Tow Truck Drivers. They too face the horrors of every bad accident scene; get called out at all hours of the night and work in the worst weather, longer than the other first responders. More Tow Truck Drivers are killed or injured every year on the...

  • What To Know About HSAs and FSAs

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Oct 4, 2023

    Paying for health care can be challenging — but are you taking full advantage of all the resources available to you? You might have access to a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), so let’s look at both. An HSA is a personal savings account used to pay health care costs. If you’re enrolled in a high-deductible health plan, you also may be eligible to contribute to an HSA. You aren’t taxed on the money you put into this account or on the earnings generated from your contributions, as long as withdrawals are used for...

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Oct 4, 2023

    Editor's Note: This column was submitted Sept. 24. Fall arrived with some measurable amounts of rain last week. That doesn't always happen. We'd finished our wheat harvest before this last wetting, plus there's some winter wheat planted, so the rain is making us happy. I have not yet finished harvesting good things from the garden. There are still potatoes and carrots to dig, as well as tomatoes and husk cherries (aka prairie gooseberries) to pick and enjoy. I've pulled all the moon flower plant...
