  • Homecoming in Nashua

    Sandy Laumeyer, Courier Correspondent|Oct 28, 2015

    Saturday was a perfect Fall day for a Homecoming parade, bazaar, a hot bowl of soup, and the last home volleyball game in Nashua. A pink convertible in which were seated Nashua Homecoming King Joe Dunning and Homecoming Queen Emily Skyberg was preceded by the Nashua School Band. Though the parade was short enthusiasm generated by it was not. Once the parade was over, onlookers flocked to the Nashua Civic Center to do some early Christmas gift shopping at the Nashua Lions Club Fall Bazaar and Cra... Full story

  • Municipal Elections come to Northeast Montana Cities

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    On Nov. 3, voters across the county will elect a host of men and women to represent their respective townships. Some of the faces are familiar; others are rosy, unseasoned in the political realm. Each is assured, certain of his or her purpose and the benefit his or her election would bestow upon the citizens. The Courier provides an inside look at the contested races and the candidates vying for the seats. In Fort Peck, incumbent Mayor John Jones runs unopposed. Justin Schaaf, Kirsten Marie Holte, and Mark Sullivan, too, are unchallenged in the... Full story

  • Deschene Resigns

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    The Glasgow City Council accepted the resignation of newly-hired attorney Kimberly Deschene at its Oct. 19 meeting. Mrs. Deschene decided to put off her pursuing of a vital role in the town’s government until her youngest son graduates high school and she can relocate to Valley County. At that time, if she so desires, she may submit a bid to be hired and go through the same process as she did in being hired this summer. Peter Helland will reassume his role as the city’s civil attorney through June, 2016. Glasgow will contract with the cou...

    Sandy Laumeyer, Courier Correspondent|Oct 28, 2015

    Recently, Montana's Gov. Steve Bullock joined with Canadian Consul General Marcy Grossman in welcoming guests to a retirement reception in honor of Honorary Consul Shirley Ball of Nashua. The reception, held in the governor's reception room at the Montana State Capitol building, was hosted by the Canadian Consulate and attended by about 50 people. Ball retired after serving for 10 years as the Honorary Consul for Canada in Montana. The Honorary Consul job requires that the person provide...

  • Teacher in Residence

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    Marcia McEachron has been inspiring young Glasgow artists for over 20 years, and she doesn't appear to be ready to quit. McEachron began coming to Glasgow as part of an artist in residence program in 1994, and each year since then, she has been invited to work with the third grade classes in Glasgow. With her help and supervision, the students have created their own art with pictures of animals, and third grade teacher Betty Jo Bense's favorite - self portraits. She typically spends a week with...

  • Expanding the Veterans' History Project

    Steve Daines--U.S. Representative|Oct 28, 2015

    One out of every 10 Montanans is a veteran, which makes Montana home to more veterans per capita than almost any other state in the nation. It is one of my greatest honors to serve Montana’s veterans in Congress. Every one of these men and women have an incredible story to tell from their service – stories that are also part of our nation’s history and our heritage. That’s why the Veterans History Project is so important. My team in Montana is helping to spread awareness of the American Folklife Center’s Veterans History Project across th...

  • The Simplest Things

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just A Thought|Oct 28, 2015

    Last Saturday, as I was walking to the Nashua School to watch the volleyball games, one of my grandsons met me. He walked beside me for a few moments, then took off skipping. He returned to my side, still skipping. I smiled as I observed his energy. I mentioned I used to enjoy skipping. He replied, “I like to skip. And if I skip fast enough and take the biggest steps I can, I feel like I’m flying. Skipping is fun.” This same grandson is on the JAM basketball team for Nashua. The JAM team and junior high basketball team were in Opheim on Frida...

  • Are They Willing?

    Mary Honrud, Sowing Notions|Oct 28, 2015

    I have been mulling over my thoughts on the topic of abortion rights in the United States. I was never in the forefront of the fight to gain this right, but I silently cheered on my sisters who worked towards this gain for a woman’s control of her own body, and therefore her ability to lead her life as she wanted. There are many reasons a woman might choose to not become a mother. And those reasons may vary greatly at different stages of her life. Some remain constant throughout the years she is fertile. I strongly feel that if a woman does not...

  • Long-Legged Safety Check

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Oct 28, 2015

    Do you remember the days of manual transmissions, or ever further back, to a crank-starting vehicle? I was thinking of earlier days, when children often spent the day in the field with Mom and Dad. Daycare consisted of the children riding in whatever vehicle or machinery was being used at the time, or maybe they had a “spot” for play nearby. Of course leaving children in a vehicle has always been a safety issue, but back in those days there wasn’t much chance the little ones were going to get the car/pickup started and moving. I am sure the lit...

  • Think Before You Donate: Part II

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks For Listening|Oct 28, 2015

    This is part two about an email I have received several times over the past seven or so years. It’s been circling the Internet since 2005 and just won’t go down the drain. Until now, I have simply deleted it. This time I didn’t and this two-part story is attributed to that fact. It has its good points and bad points to be sure, but this year I simply had to point out to you the bad after having been recently chastised severely for not researching some of my columns. As the chastiser pointed out in his/her tirade, “Your readers deserve to know...

  • Probing the Project

    David Pippin, Letter To the Editor|Oct 28, 2015

    James Walling, you certainly deserve credit for a series of articles that have been well done on the APR and bison and have brought up some questions that it seems they cannot even answer. I believe that your approach of letting both sides have input on this reintroduction of bison question is the first time that larger NGOs have not smothered us with propaganda that supports just their side. You have proven to be a very insightful editor, and I, for one, appreciate the fairness of your reporting and thorough investigation of items that are so...

    Lawrence "Larry" Fred Hanzlik, 78, of Great Falls, Mont., passed away on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015, of natural causes. He was born on Oct. 19, 1936, in Harlowton, Mont., to Fred W. and Erma Elaine (Hall) Hanzlik.

    Oct 28, 2015

    Dan Anderson, 89, of Opheim, Mont., died on Friday, Oct. 9, 2015, of natural causes at Sweetwater Retirement Living. As per Dan's wishes, there will not be a memorial service. A private family memorial will take place next summer where his ashes, along with Jene's will be spread on the family farm in Opheim. He was born on the family homestead on Jan. 3, 1926, one of four children born to Daniel G. and Anna Anderson. He was raised by his mother after his father passed away at a young age. He...

His father remarried and the family grew by four more girls, taking the count to eight siblings. He grew up on a dairy farm a few miles out of town. Along with his dad, he would milk the cows in...

  • Where Credit is Due

    Horace Sense, Letter To the Editor|Oct 28, 2015

    As I was reading Virgil Vaupel's review, Think Before You Donate, the false viral email that comes around each holiday season, I had to feel my pulse to see if I had died and Virgil was channeling me from the beyond, or whether he had hacked into my computer. Especially when he ended with, "One would almost think that my friend Horace wrote that scalding review!!" I had written almost the same review two years before, even siting the same sources to fact-check it before replying to the sender and exposing the lies about the prominent charities...

  • Running Scotties Miss Podium at Class B Championships

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    Glasgow streaked to respective 4th and 5th-place finishes in the boys' and girls' Class B state meet on Saturday. Each field comprised 32 teams, though the standard of excellence set by both the male and female Running Scotties - 1st or 2nd-place in seven of nine 2015 meets for the former; the latter, five of nine- ensured the ride back from Great Falls was a muted, somber affair. Walker Allen (22nd) and Ellis McKean (24th) each crossed the finish line in under 17:20. Merlin McKean (17:47;...

  • Scotties Defeat Malta in Final Regular Season Clash

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    SCOTTIE PRIDE IS ALIVE AND ROARING! Seattle's twelfth man has nothing on the Glasgow student section! The constant, thundering racket of the biggest student crowd in years definitely carried an already very enthusiastic GHS volleyball team through good times and lean times, ending in a solid victory over Malta, 25-21, 16-25, 25-16, 25-19. Scrappy and determined defensive efforts prevailed in the face of a much taller M'ette team, while shot selection and offensive intensity escalated for the...

  • Glasgow Trampled by Mustangs

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    The Scotties' bite proved toothless Friday night as the team was shut out by its closest rival, 48-0. The night hung low over Scottie Field, endless as the hard, rolling prairie. The red-clad masses packed the bleachers, their shouts crashing wave-on-wave upon their boys' ears. Malta stormed into the game having outscored its previous four opponents 240-28, the most recent victory being a 72-6 stomping of Harlem. Glasgow, too, had romped over foes Poplar, Harlem, and Wolf Point in its last...

  • Music Review: Wylie and the Wild West

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    Wylie and the Wild West know how to break it down cowboy style: "We are a good-time cowboy band that hates to be boring," lead singer Wylie Gustafson has said. Boring, they are not. The WWW crew also broke it down western style, swing style, and polka style before they were done Tuesday night at the GHS auditorium. They even threw in a little Rolling Stones, with the "real cowboy song" (as Wylie put it), Satisfaction. All of the above were performed as homage to Gustafson's various musical...

  • Film Shorts: Valley Cinemas, Streaming, The Worx

    D.K. Holm, For The Courier|Oct 28, 2015

    Among the films leaving Netflix in November are, unsurprisingly, some Halloween related items, such as the first Scream, still an effective slasher film, especially if you don't know the plot, and the first five Saws, if you are a student of incredibly complicated horror mythology. For those interested in the trials and tribulations of the young, there is the Stephen King adaptation Stand by Me, and the inspirational college football tale, Rudy. For fans of chaos, there is the Saturday Night...
