  • 'Here I Come Honky Tonk' Begins MT Bain's Music Journey

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Oct 19, 2022

    A Valley County resident since 2014, Mike Bain is most known for the technical support he provides throughout Valley County as the county's designated computer and technology person. Most recently, however, the timing has been right for Bain to enjoy another passion of his: being a singer and songwriter. His first single, which is being released today, titled "Here I Come Honky Tonk," is the first of six singles being released to major online music platforms through March 2023. His other...

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Oct 19, 2022

  • Gustafson Is The Right Choice

    Oct 19, 2022

  • Not Smoking In The Home Prevents Fires, Protects Health

    Oct 19, 2022

    Dear Editor, October is Fire Prevention Month. This is a good time to check your fire extinguishers and smoke detectors, and to make sure your family has a plan for leaving your home in case of a fire. Another way to stay safe year-round is to eliminate smoking from your home. Not only will this help prevent accidental fire, it also will protect your family members, visitors, and pets from secondhand smoke. Montana statistics from the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) show...

  • LR 131

    Oct 19, 2022

    PAID POLITICAL CONTENT Dear Editor, Recently, certain individuals have urged Montanans to vote against LR 131 in the November ballot. If passed, LR 131 would ensure medical care to infants born alive after failed abortion, cesarean section, or induced labor. Some argue that this law is unnecessary. However, infants sometimes survive abortion, and when they do it is not uncommon for a nurse to avoid resuscitation or to leave them without medical care. Unlike the United States, Canada tracks the...

  • School Houses

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Oct 19, 2022

    Do you remember the days of one, or maybe two room school houses? My memories are of the Tampico School, which began with no running water nor indoor plumbing. Of course, our rural area can bring to mind many one or maybe two room schools. Since my husband and many of his family, as well as our two daughters, had the honor of calling themselves students of Tampico or Tampico Tech as some like to call it. I am certainly not an authority on any of these schools, but I understand the Tampico school house was at one time located in the Billingsley...

  • To the Valley County Taxpayers:

    Oct 19, 2022

    We, the former members of the Valley County Refuse Board, take exception to how we have been portrayed by the County Commissioners, and most recently by Commissioner Fahlgren in his campaigning. When we were removed from the board, the commissioners used a 1985/86 statute that required board structure to be outlined in a resolution. Rather than making such a resolution, they decided to let all of the board members go. To our knowledge, we were not the only county board that didn’t meet this requirement, but we were the only board disbanded. A...

  • Montana Public Trust Coalition

    Oct 19, 2022

    Dear Editor, As election day approaches, members of the newly formed Montana Public Trust Coalition would like to remind you of the reckless efforts of some of our political leaders in the last Montana Legislature.

These include our right to privacy, our right to a clean and healthful environment, our right to know what our elected officials are doing, and our...

  • Stockwater Rights

    Oct 19, 2022

    Dear Editor, I’ve written before about range stockwater rights. The federal government has decided (wrongly!) that the existence of ruminant animals is destroying the climate, and they want to have a clear path to removing cattle from the United States. Big city enviros resent people living in non-urban areas, because they believe that all non-urban areas should be playgrounds for the wealthy, and they resent the presence of locals in their playgrounds. Historically, stockwater rights have p...

    For the Courier|Oct 19, 2022

    According to the latest report to the Governor’s Drought and Water Supply Advisory Committee, recent rainfall across most of Montana has done little to pull the state out of long-term drought conditions. “We saw the third warmest August on record and September saw temperatures more than five degrees above average across much of the state,” said Michael Downey, drought program coordinator with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. “High summer temperatures have depleted streams, and two years of severe to extreme drought...
