  • HLRC Appoints Murray, Bids Farewell to Rude 

    Mark Hebert with PCN, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    When Health Management Services (HMS) announced they were prepared to submit their letter of resignation and step away from managing Phillips County’s Hi-Line Retirement Center at a public meeting two weeks ago, members of the new-look HLRC Board of Directors didn’t balk at the offer. The agreement with HMS – which lasted just over 17 months – ended on Sept. 30 and the HLRC Board is now working towards revoking a request to have HLRC decertified as a nursing home, in attempts to become exclusively an assisted living center. With HMS’ departure... Full story

  • Autumn Comes to Hinsdale

    Dane Osen, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    Taking in the sounds and sights in Hinsdale at the Fall Festival on Oct. 2 was truly a delight. It was my first year attending the annual get-together, which is now in its fifth year. With plenty of cotton candy and ice cream on hand, the children had plenty of energy, whether it was for a round of musical chairs or to try their skill at a catapult-style target game dubbed punkin' chunkin'. There were also several local merchants displaying various goods as well. Sierra Holt and her husband... Full story

  • City Council Brief

    A.J. Etherington, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    The topics dominating the discussion at the City Council meeting held Oct. 3 were the hiring and projected hirings of Glasgow Police Department employees, city union negotiations, and City Council transparency. Other items discussed were the Levee Safety Committee’s meeting with Senator Steve Daines, whose assistance will be needed in securing federal funding, in the tune of millions, to update the Milk River Levee Assistant Chief Gault’s opening word during his department report to the council was “busy”. Gault commented on overtime use, of... Full story

  • VCCF Funds Improvements at Boy Scout Park

    A.J. Etherington, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    On Aug. 20, 18 Boy Scouts and Scout supporters came out to assist Troop 861 Life Scout Garret Paju with his Eagle Scout Project at Boy Scout Park. The project consisted of stripping the current asphalt roof from the park's shower house, patching holes in the roof and placing a new steel roof on the structure along with other maintenance around the park. It took the group of volunteers the better part of the day to complete, and some final touch-ups were made on Aug. 21. The funding for the... Full story

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks for Listening|Oct 5, 2016

    It’s getting on to election time. Are you ready? Have you heard enough about the candidates for the next POTUS? Do you believe most of the trash both candidates are talking? Is the Trump fortune enough to sway your good judgment to his side? Is the fact that Hillary is a woman enough for you to cast your vote her way? Here’s the way I see it. Stay tuned for this important message from your friendly ambulance chasers at Dewey, Chasem and Howe, 666 Faked ‘em Lane, Thoeny, MT 592 and a half. We’re back, thanks for sticking around.

  • Fall Memories

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Oct 5, 2016

    Several weeks ago we took a trip to Boulder to visit my husband’s brother for a few days. As we drove along, I noticed quite a few cottonwood trees whose leaves were turning yellow. On a day trip to Butte, I saw a few places in the mountains where a lone bright yellow cottonwood stood alone amidst the dark green pine trees. Seeing them brought back memories of the woods where I grew up. Hillsides would be covered in trees robed in gold, green, brown, tan, rust and crimson. The picture they created was impossible to duplicate. With the turning o... Full story

  • What We Bring to the Fight

    John Fahlgren, Commissioner Candidate|Oct 5, 2016

    Valley County is a large county, over 3 million acres with nearly half of that being BLM, CMR, Corps of Engineers, and State of Montana lands. The policies and plans of these agencies can have either positive or negative effects on our economy and our future. Last week I attended the “Coordination” training held at the Malta library. “Coordination” refers to the requirement that Federal agencies coordinate with local governments in developing and implementing plans and management activities. The training was primarily attended by County... Full story

  • Listen to the Quiet: Part 5

    Helen DePunydt, Saco Stories|Oct 5, 2016

    The Kienitz family now numbered four: Otto, Lizzie and their two lively daughters, blond Leona, nicknamed “Toots,” and the dark-haired Luella, who is known as “Babe.” The members of this family were closely knit and have remained so over the years. Luella, number two daughter, now living in Bremerton, Wash., reminisces about her childhood out on the windswept prairie. “Winter snows brought out the homemade sleds, scoop shovels or toboggan for sliding down the rocky hills. With my long tresses trailing behind and lying flat on the sled, I g... Full story

  • Scotties Make Wolves Howl in 46-0 Win

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    The Wolf Point Wolves hosted the Glasgow Scotties on the gridiron Sept. 30, and they were determined to prevail over the Scotties. Unfortunately, the most newsworthy notes of the evening for the home team were their senior recognition and homecoming festivities. It took a while for the Scotties to warm up their offense, but defensively they denied the Wolves right from the beginning. Despite a 34-yard pass reception by Trent Herbert, when the first quarter came to an end, the scoreboard was... Full story

  • Lady Scotties Propelled to Win Over Wolves

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    All this talk about the importance of passing, volleyball's first and most critical contact, proved its case as the Scotties fought for a victory over the Wolf Point Wolves Sept. 29. The crowd was raucous, packed with students who never stopped cheering, students who have endlessly and enthusiastically supported us every game - what a great environment to play in. Game one went as expected: scrappy competition on both sides of the net, neither team giving up on a ball, but finally GHS pushed a little harder and won 25-19. Game two was all Wolf... Full story
