  • Early Legislative Wins: Hunting, Huckleberries, Veterans, Accountability

    Jan 18, 2023

    Dear Editor, What do hunting, huckleberries, honoring our veterans, and accountability for taxpayer money have in common? Two things.

  • Worried About Inflation? Consider These Moves

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Jan 18, 2023

    As you know, inflation was big news throughout 2022. But will it continue in 2023? And looking even further ahead, how should you account for inflation in your long-term plans? In regard to the first question, many experts predict that inflation will cool off this year, though there are no guarantees. The high inflation of last year is thought to have been caused by some unusual factors, such as a spike in the demand for consumer goods as the world came out of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to supply chain issues. Also, the war in Ukraine...

  • Right To Repair MOU Doesn't Fix Issue

    For the Courier|Jan 18, 2023

    Right to Repair issues have been making news this week because of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between John Deere and the American Farm Bureau Federation.

  • Emulation Station

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Jan 18, 2023

    A lot of us, myself included, grew up with the sights and sounds of certain video games being ubiquitous. The “waka-waka” of Pac-Man, Tetris’s definitive theme music, or guiding Link through another adventure in Hyrule. Most of us, whether we’ve grown out of it or not, can look back fondly at times we’ve spent borderline-unhealthy lengths of time gripping a controller. Nowadays, video games are a very different experience, and typically a far cry from the simplicity of the ones from our youth. What if there was a way to recapture those fee...

  • Palm Reading? Or Too Many Palms...

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jan 18, 2023

    Last week I briefly mentioned there being so many varieties of palm trees at the Sunken Gardens. There were palm trees scattered throughout the gardens, a well as a palm grove. Many of them I'd never heard of. I thought I'd write about those this week, to keep us envisioning tropical climes and ignoring the cold and snow enveloping our corner of Montana. I'd thought I'd be able to do a quick online search for palms of Florida, but no, there are way too many types to cover. I'd said I was amazed...
