  • Sheriff Candidate Joe Horn's Daughters Make Public Allegations Against Father

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Oct 24, 2018

    On Saturday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m., the biological daughters of Valley County Sheriff’s candidate Joseph Horn, Amy Brown and Gail Hayes, held a forum to discuss their opposition to their father for Valley County Sheriff.

  • In Support of I-185

    Bruce Peterson, Fort Peck, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, I-185 will address problems: Mental Health. Drug Abuse. The State of Montana has a real need for more mental health providers/therapists. At times Montana has citizens that need help- be that in times of flood, or drought, or cancer, or fire, or Alzheimer’s, or with personal behavioral health issues. In a perfect world we solve our own, but now is a time to help. I-185 will positively affect the economy of our Montana through job creation, fewer emergency room visits, fewer jail inmates, fewer tobacco health problems, lower i...

  • Who is Better Qualified to be Sheriff?

    Karen Bender, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, It is my understanding that a sheriff needs more skills in management than in law enforcement. According to Dan Taylor, who was a sheriff here for many, many years, a good sheriff has to be able to manage the jail, dispatch, civil department, coroner, search and rescue, and is an officer of the District Court. True Joe Horn has 27 years law enforcement experience, but when in the Sept. 19 Courier the question was asked of him, what is the largest budget you have been in charge of, Horn said he’s never been in charge of a budget, e...

  • Do These Elections Matter?

    Edward D. Neil, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, Having been a volunteer, low-level party officer, campaign worker and financial contributor through numerous campaigns for at least 30 years, I am usually vocal and enthusiastic regarding election season. However, when considering Montana's Federal, State and County campaigns this year, it appears to me that election day is only a formality with results already determined in some cases with candidates bowing, scraping and licking the stylish sandals of the tourism, recreation, environmental and real estate lobbies if not avoiding...

  • Horn Public Forum

    George Kulczyk, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, I attended the public forum held by Joe Horn’s biological daughters, Amy Horn-Brown and Gail Horn-Hayes, at the Elks on Oct. 6. I did not attend as a representative of the Courier, nor am I writing this as a representative of the Courier; these are my personal thoughts and feelings. Although I hope that people reading this will trust my sincerity and respect my opinions, I am fully aware that I am opening myself up to name-calling and derision from certain members of the community. I am a lifelong resident of Valley County and I c...

    Sharon Weston, Valley County Democratic Committee Member|Oct 24, 2018

    Voting is Important Dear Editor, A few people in Valley County may not understand that the only remaining polling place to vote Nov. 6, is in Glasgow at the Civic Center. All other polling places have been closed. If you cannot get to Glasgow on Nov. 6, and have not already signed up for a mail-in ballot, you have one option left. You can vote at the Valley County Courthouse anytime from now until Nov. 6. On Nov. 6, you can vote at the Civic Center. Know the candidates. Know the issues. Then vote. Many elections have been won by only one vote....

  • Scottie XC, More than a Team

    Kim Shipp, Glasgow, Mont.|Oct 24, 2018

    Dear Editor, During the past couple years I have had the opportunity to attend many cross country meets. I love attending Scottie sporting events and cheering for ALL Scottie athletes. Cross country is a sport I never thought of attending nor did I think I would enjoy watching. However, the cross country kids have shown me something I have never witnessed in a sport. They are more than a team; they are a family. It doesn’t matter if you’re the first, second, or last runner across the finish line. It is certain that their teammates will be the...

  • Indian Summer

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Oct 24, 2018

    Finally, we are enjoying some Indian summer. I wasn't sure if that was an allowed expression any longer, or if we'd gotten so P.C. that the term should now be "Native American summer," so I looked it up. Wikipedia still lists the term, described as "a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs," usually "following a period of cooler weather or frost in the late autumn." The first known recording of the phrase came from Letters From an American Farmer, in 1778, by J. H. St....

  • Glasgow Fails to Secure Win vs. Malta

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 24, 2018

    With playoffs on the horizon, the Scotties were on the road for their final regular-season game on Oct. 19 as they faced the Malta Mustangs. With home-field advantage for the first playoff game on the line for the winner, there were plenty of reasons to fight for the win. Unfortunately, the Scotties fell short and lost to their long-time rivals, 33-24. "We just started out flat in the first half," explained head coach Pat Barnett. "We couldn't complete any of our mid-to-long drives." The second...
