  • A Rural Family Medicine Doctor's Perspective On LR-131

    Nov 2, 2022

    PAID POLITICAL CONTENT Dear Editor, This is not an abortion issue. This is a humanity issue. I am a family medicine doctor from a rural community in eastern Montana. From the time I started my undergraduate degree in pre-medicine, I have been committed to returning to practice full-scope family medicine in a rural and underserved community. Delivering babies has been a primary goal of mine. I love watching families grow and helping mothers bring new life into this world. The majority of the...

  • To Valley County Taxpayers:

    Nov 2, 2022

    Dear Editor, Last spring our commissioners decided to terminate the Refuse Board, thinking they could do a better job. Yet in the months since, they still have not acted on a $3,000 engineering study or a new rate structure. The topic turned out to be "more complicated." Also, this spring at a public meeting, our commissioners saw fit to give $500,000 of the $1.3 million in federal funds, meant for Valley County, to Valley View Home as a band aid to the Home's Budget. The comment in the meeting...

  • Montana Veterans Encouraged To See If New PACT Act Can Help Them

    Nov 2, 2022

    Dear Editor, We write this letter with the hope of reaching as many Montana Veterans and their family members as possible regarding the recent passage of the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act sponsored by Senator Jon Tester. The PACT Act is a historic new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans – and their survivors. It recognizes toxic exposure as a “cost of war” by addressing the full range of issues impacting toxic-exposed Veterans. Native American Veterans serve their country at a higher rate per capit...

  • Rules

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Nov 2, 2022

    Do you remember when you took a bath once a week, and maybe in a tin wash tub? What about how often did you wash your hair? Or do you remember wearing curlers or pin curls to school? I must admit that I do not remember ever going to school with curlers or bobby pins in my hair, but I do remember starting eighth grade and having a new teacher that laid out her rules to us on the first day. One was NO curlers or pin curls worn to school! There were several rules we thought were tough, so you can imagine our surprise when we got to listen to the...

    Here’s an interesting statistic: Some 72 percent of retirees say one of their biggest fears is becoming a burden on their families, according to a 2021 survey by Age Wave and Edward Jones. Both before and during retirement, what steps can you take to avoid burdening your loved ones in the future? Here are a few suggestions: • Build your retirement savings.

    Zora Holt, For the Courier|Nov 2, 2022

    Western Valley 4-H Club members Kade Strommen, Cienna Strommen, Layna Jones, and Zora Holt got together on Oct. 12 and gave ice-cream to Hinsdale’s student body to promote 4-H.

We gave ice-cream to both elementary students and high school students, although the high schoolers seemed more interested in ice-cream than 4-H. On Oct. 15, Western V...

  • Legit? Check

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Nov 2, 2022

    The internet in all its vastness, with its more than five billion users, can sometimes be a place filled with noise. An overwhelming amount of information from a near-infinite number of sources. Happily, there are systems in place which give us clues as to which sources are more reliable, and which accounts on social media are in fact who they say they are. How does one, then, use these tools to verify the source of any given post, tweet or article? What methods do sites and services use to make sure there isn’t impersonation of famous f...

  • On Vacation

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Nov 2, 2022

    Editor's Note: This column was submitted on Oct. 22. We are currently out of state, at my family reunion in Nebraska. My father was born and raised in Ponca, Neb. His dad was a railroad man, with a small farm on the side. His mom was a German immigrant. Dad had three brothers and one sister. Dad dropped out of high school, lying about his age, to join the Navy so he could fight for our country in WWII. By the time I was born, WWII was long over and dad had switched to the Air Force.

  • Football Defeats Baker in First Round

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Nov 2, 2022

    Glasgow's football squad advanced to the State Quarterfinal Playoff Game by defeating two opponents Saturday: the Baker Spartans and the Scotties, themselves. On their first postseason game, Glasgow took the win, 34-12, taking Baker out of the running in a gritty game.

Indeed, the Scotties overcame their own setbacks to claim the win, though Hughes...
