    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Nov 6, 2019

    It is an age-old problem for governments – and one that has divided the left from the right for the better part of the century – how to best fund government services and which services, if any, should be funded. That is the precise question facing a state-wide bipartisan legislative subcommittee this coming year as they prepare a study of the state’s revenue and spending models. The questions at hand being how best to fund the Montana governmental services people have grown accustomed to, what services can be cut or optimized and what can b...

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Nov 6, 2019

    The Glasgow Recreation Department's annual Monster Dash race took place Nov. 2 at Sullivan Park. While the number of participants may have been down a bit this year, the enthusiasm was not. Runners and walkers were decked out in costumes galore, from clowns to racers to Peter Pan characters to those who seemed to jump a holiday ahead in Grinch and Cindy Lou Who outfits, hit the 1.5 mile course for a crisp workout and a chance to win prizes. Those costumes may have served more than a decorative...

  • Brick Streets

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Nov 6, 2019

    This is a topic that many of us have little knowledge of, however I am remembering days of brick streets. I do not know [if] I have seen brick streets in Montana, however I do have bricks that were made in Havre, so bricks were available. I did spend several of my young years living in Mo., and there were a lot of brick streets. There are still brick streets in that area. My question, how often are bricks replaced or do they last longer than pavement? Following up on that question might go on my “to do list.” What is the cost compared to pav...
