    Marc Kloker, FWP|Oct 25, 2017

    Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 game wardens declare that due to good people coming forward with good information, the individuals responsible for the multiple mule deer killed in northern McCone Co. last week have been identified and interviewed. Region 6 wardens would like to thank the public for their phone calls, comments, and Facebook shares, and would also like to thank media outlets for helping to spread the word. Wardens are now working with the McCone Co. attorney, and charges are pending. The case will then go in front of th... Full story

  • Law Enforcement

    James Walling, The Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    According to Valley County Sheriff Vernon Buerkle, the jail had a dramatic reduction in the number of inmates over the past week. The number of beds filled dropped by a total of 27 from a recent high of 50 down to just 35. The bulk of the reduction came as a result of Department of Corrections activity and inmate transfers. The Valley County Health Department and the Sheriff’s Office have added an incinerator to their toolkit for collecting and destroying illegal and prescription drugs. A red drug collection box has been placed in the county c... Full story

  • Glasgow Youths Make Us Proud

    Marie Pederson and George McIntyre, For The Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    Something positive happened in our community on Friday, Oct. 13. The Glasgow Middle School Student Council took it upon themselves to make and sell hearts. Plain red hearts, nothing special, right? Wrong! Those hearts were sold to raise money for Jim Belcher’s widow, Sheryl. Tragically, Jim was killed in a bus accident Sept. 19, doing what he loved, driving kids to their activities. They didn’t have to do this. They did it because they are good kids. They proved it when they presented the hearts and check to Mrs. Belcher, in a unique and hea... Full story

  • Treat Street Set for Tuesday, Oct. 31

    James Walling, The Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    The Glasgow Downtown Association is sponsoring Treat Street again this year on Tuesday, Oct. 31, as part of area Halloween festivities. The idea is to increase foot traffic in stores, encouraging shoppers and families to trick or treat in and around downtown businesses. According to Two Rivers Economic Growth Director TeAra Bilbruck, last year’s event was a great success. Decorations, treats, food specials, and other sales and activities are all on the menu, so don’t miss it. The spending of Christmas/Community Cash at participating bus... Full story

  • Letter to the Editor

    Oct 25, 2017

    One of the most beautiful things about football is the presentation of the flag of the United States of America during the national anthem and Air Force I flying over the stadium. It takes my breath away and brings tears to my eyes. Now we are being denied this beauty by the media to protect the spoiled million-dollar football players who refuse to honor our country in a respectful manner. I’m under the impression that their football contract requires that players, coaches and all personnel must stand at attention with helmets in left hand a... Full story

  • Facing the Opiod Crisis

    Jon Tester, Political Viewpoint|Oct 25, 2017

    Montanans, like many across our country, continue to face a severe and growing opioid, meth, and heroin epidemic. These drugs have ravaged Montana homes and families, leaving little of our state untouched by addiction. The time is now. We must work together to keep these drugs off the streets and out of the hands of our children, friends, and family. I joined Senators from across the country in demanding that the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services detail exactly how law enforcement agencies can help opioid...

  • The Montana We Know

    John Heenan, Political Viewpoint|Oct 25, 2017

    Every morning we open our eyes is yet another opportunity to rise, face the world and make choices. When I’m not sharing parenting duties with my wife Meagen, and running our four kids to and from school and their various activities around Billings, I choose to work hard at standing up to bullies and corporations who have lied, cheated and stolen from my clients. I’m a consumer protection attorney, which means I stand up for working people who get shafted by powerful corporations—from the widow whose insurance company tries to trick her rathe...

  • The Farm Labor Shortage

    Zippy Duvall, For the Farm|Oct 25, 2017

    Thanks to scientific innovation in agriculture, farmers and ranchers are using fewer resources to grow an abundant, sustainable food supply. But I wonder how far our new technology and techniques will take us if farmers are left without one of the most critical resources to keep our farms sustainable: a stable workforce. Agriculture’s labor shortage is at a crisis level, with farmers like Burr and Rosella Mosby losing crops and income because there aren’t enough workers for harvest. Every year we hear stories of fresh produce rotting in the...

  • Threats to Rural Communities

    Troy Downing, Political Viewpoint|Oct 25, 2017

    Rural America embodies the best of our nation. Tough, rugged, resilient and hard working. To me, it’s something that is quintessentially American, like a Charlie Russell painting. Something that can’t always be measured, yet is always felt. Today, I worry about the serious threats facing our rural communities. These are communities that help one another, produce our food, extract energy and fuel our economy. I hear a lot of talk about the value of a Nation, State, County, or City. Normally, that is expressed in terms of gross product, or wha...

  • Coffee Cans and Spam

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Oct 25, 2017

    In the past I have often wondered what might have been in those jars with such a small opening. I now have an answer! I have found several brands of coffee came in glass jars, as well as Crisco (this one is hard for me to imagine). Then there jars of this size that had laundry starch. I am sure that there were many more items but my memories do not go back that far. It is funny how just one small item like a glass jar can take so much time out of my day. On that thought, remember how many grocery items came with a key on the lid (like the pop...

  • Sweet Success: Scottie Boys Stride to Second Place

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    The Scottie cross country team closed out the 2017 season with heart and hardware. The state meet was held in Helena on Oct. 21, and the Scotties did not disappoint. It was the second time in just a few weeks that Glasgow competed on the same course, and coach Rod Karst felt the team used the experience to their benefit. "Their performance on Saturday was so much stronger than what we showed in Helena two weeks ago," he said. "They learned a lot going to the 7 of 7 meet, and used that to make... Full story

  • Scotties Slay Sidney

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    It was a senior night like no other! To start things off on Oct. 19, the C Squad and JV teams both won their matches against Class A Sidney. Then, a packed gymnasium honored the seven volleyball seniors and their families as favorite memories and future dreams were revealed. Hannah Mickelson belted out a beautiful rendition of the national anthem, and finally the whistle blew to start the game. Sidney came out and jumped on top right away while Glasgow searched for some rhythm. Fortunately it... Full story
