  • Scotties Speech Sweep at Home

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Nov 17, 2021

    The Glasgow Speech and Drama team is hitting the 2021-22 season with a new head coach. Kristina McGee stepped into the slot after two years as an assistant coach under previous head coach Jodie Griffin. The third-year Glasgow teacher also brings her experience as a competitor to bear.

  • Underpass Mural Vandalized

    CHRIS McDANIEL, THE COURIER|Nov 17, 2021

    It took months of hard work by volunteers to paint the mural along the Glasgow downtown underpass, and only minutes for a vandal to leave their grubby marks in the form of graffiti. Patrolman Scott Campbell and Senior Patrolman Josh Nolan were contacted by The artist, Cat McIntyre, about the incident. The Glasgow Police Department is taking the mural defacing seriously and have come up with plans to seek out and apprehend any further defacing incidents. "It is disappointing to see this happen...

  • GHS Class of 2022 Chooses Guest Speaker for Graduation Ceremony

    Chris McDaniel, The Courier|Nov 17, 2021

    Normally, the class speaker for the annual Glasgow High School graduation ceremony must themselves be a former graduate of GHS. In spite of the fact Wade Nelson is a graduate of Hinsdale High School, his positive impact on the Glasgow High School Class of 2022 led them to request a special exemption just for him. "Each one of us took his class and we all have integral memories from the days we spent with him," Blaire Westby said during the last Glasgow School Board meeting. He was very...

  • As Constituents Clamor for Ivermectin, Republican Politicians Embrace the Cause

    NASHVILLE PUBLIC RADIO, The Courier|Nov 17, 2021

    When state senators in South Carolina held two hearings in September about covid-19 treatments, they got an earful on the benefits of ivermectin — which many of the lawmakers echoed, sharing experiences of their own loved ones. The demands for access to the drug were loud and insistent, despite federal regulators’ recent warning against using the drug to treat covid. Ivermectin is a generic drug that has been used for decades to treat river blindness, scabies and even head lice. Veterinarians also use it, in different formulations and dos...

They d...

    Chris McDaniel, PUBLISHER T.H.W.T.B|Nov 17, 2021

    It came at me like a ton of bricks. A week ago Sunday morning I was just fine. By early afternoon, the onslaught of fever had begun. I am old enough now to have gone through my fair share of flus and colds, so I decided on that Sunday to sweat it out. Off to bed I went clad in a wool beanie, t-shirt, jacket, pants, socks and two blankets. Even with all that on, I could barely get warm enough. It was a greatly pleasurable experience when I did finally get warm. I could feel the heat radiating throughout my nerves. The next morning, it was back... Full story

  • OP-ED:

    THOMAS L. KNAPP, William Lloyd Garrison Center for Libertarian Advocacy Journalism.|Nov 17, 2021

    On November 9, DC District Court judge Tanya Chutkan refused former US president Donald Trump's request, based on "executive privilege," for a preliminary injunction forbidding the National Archives and Records Administration to release documents to the US House committee grandstanding on ... er, "investigating" ... the January 6 Capitol riot. If Trump's name goes down in history for anything of substance rather than mere flash, it should probably be for his bizarre claim that people who aren't executives anymore retain "executive privilege" ov... Full story

  • OP-ED:

    STEVEN PRINCE, Card Marketing Services and the Patriotic Millionaires|Nov 17, 2021

    The month-long showdown over taxes is finally nearing its end as the majority of Congressional Democrats face off against a small group of their moderate colleagues in a fight over the future of the party and the country. While most Democrats are advocating for popular policies like prescription drug negotiation, paid leave, and taxing the rich, centrists have continually dug their heels into the ground, derailing negotiations and endangering the party’s success in the coming midterm elections. They’ve adopted the priorities of their wea... Full story

  • Green Spaces

    Mary Honrud, Special to The Courier|Nov 17, 2021

    As I'm writing this it is snowing up north. In fact, it is snowing enough to turn my yard white. The temperature when I arose at 6:30 was a balmy 36, but the deck was wet and slick with frost. By 9 a.m. it was down to 30, but 'warmed' back up to 31 in a half hour. I'm so glad I'd cleared the front deck of furniture and other obstacles that would make snow removal more difficult. The batteries for the snow blower are well charged, ready for use. The leaf-mowing I did last week will be the last... Full story

  • Tech Space

    RICHARD NOBLE, founder of Want For Tech, an IT company based in Glasgow.|Nov 17, 2021

    Everyone’s favorite platform to share thoughts, opinions and photos of your kids holding pumpkins has been around for a minute, it’s fair to say. Facebook originally launched in 2004 and opened up to anyone over the age of 13 with an email address in 2006. They recently made news, however, for what’s perhaps our generation’s most controversial rebranding efforts. Facebook is dead, long live Facebook! Or as they’d now like to be addressed: Meta. It’s important to note that corporate rearranging like this isn’t completely unheard of when we ta...
