  • Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons

    Alyssa Toce Blount, For the Courier|Oct 12, 2022

    The red hand on my face represents Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons, for all women, men and children. I wanted to do the hand because I feel not a lot of people know what the hand means. People don't see this movement as often as they should. I want to help make this movement more known to people on and off the reservation. When I wore the hand on my face I've got a lot of questioning looks. So hopefully more people will recognize this movement and help spread the word...

  • Vote For Judge Ingrid Gustafson

    Oct 12, 2022

    PAID POLITICAL CONTENT Dear Editor, This fall, Montanans have a chance to turn over our Supreme Court to big business and billionaires. All we have to do is vote for their candidate, James Brown. Mr. Brown's record shows why corporations like him. He is not an accomplished lawyer nor legal scholar, but he is a well-known corporate lobbyist, political operative and advocate for "dark money." His support for dark money was exposed in the PBS Frontline documentary, "Big Sky, Big Money," which you...

  • Seeing Bales

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Oct 12, 2022

    This is not a remember, rather a shout out to my friends and neighbors. It is so heart warming for me to drive down some of our rural roads, or west on Highway #2 and see fields of round bales wrapped with Flag design net wrap.

  • Should You Consolidate Retirement Accounts?

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Oct 12, 2022

    One of the rewards for working over several decades is the ability to contribute to tax-advantaged retirement accounts, which can help provide needed income for you when you do retire. As the years went by, you may well have accumulated several retirement accounts, such as IRAs and 401(k)s or similar employer-sponsored plans. But you might find it advantageous to consolidate these accounts with a single provider.
