    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Aug 3, 2022

    Another year for the NE MT Fair. There are so many things involved in this annual event. Those that are involved in 4-H, FFA, and maybe Open Class have been busy for a long time preparing for the week of the fair. We immediately think of the feeding and grooming required for our Livestock Exhibitors, but there are so many things that go on behind the scenes that we, the general public, are not aware of unless we were required to be involved in these events also. Of course, there are many projects other than livestock. Maybe your child or even...

  • Gardening Doldrums

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Aug 3, 2022

    I must admit that the presence of our grandsons (and now our middle daughter) has kept my attention away from my yard and garden. We’ve been golfing, attended two productions at the Fort Peck Theatre (Always, Patsy Cline, and Suessical, the Musical - we highly recommend this current show), to Kiwanis Park for tetherball (mainly to blow off energy before the theatre), and dining in town quite often. The boys are learning to adjust their hockey slap shots into proper golf swings - mostly. This u...

  • Got Salsa?

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Aug 3, 2022

    Chips! Delicious, of course. But the less tasty ones make up the brains behind all but the very simplest of electronic devices. Smart phones, chargers, microwaves and cars alike all use integrated circuits (ICs for short) to perform whatever task they’ve been designed to do. As we know, we’re still recovering from the same chip shortage which has made buying those cars and electronics trickier, even this deep into 2022. This week however, Congress has made moves to help prevent this kind of supply squeeze from happening in the future. Will you...
