  • Glasgow's Christmas Tree Returns

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Nov 19, 2014

    It's been roughly over two decades since Glasgow lost its Christmas tree located downtown. The tree used to sit in the middle of the street on 2nd Ave. S and 4th St. S. A manhole was uncovered and a pot the city created to place the tree in helped hold the tree in place. The tree brought some of that holiday cheer and Christmas spirit to shoppers, pedestrians and workers as they traveled through the downtown area. "It was just a tree stuck in a hole every year," Dan Carney, previous mayor of... Full story

  • Festival Of Trees: A Decade Of Tradition

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Nov 19, 2014

    It's been a local tradition that has continued to grow. The thought that started it all was, why couldn't we do this in Glasgow?

The prime rib dinner and auction will take place on Friday, Nov. 21, from 6-8 p.m. Tickets have already been selling for the event.

    Carin Barnett, For The Courier|Nov 19, 2014

    The Ice Dawg Squirts traveled to Havre for a pair of games this weekend. Leading up to the games there was both excitement and nervousness for the five returning and eight new Squirts.

  • Why Did The Bison Cross The Road?

    Monty Billing, My Opinion|Nov 19, 2014

    This was written based off comments that have been expressed at meetings across the state. Fish, Wildlife, and Parks put wild and free roaming bison on a refuge, but there was nothing to keep them there. The refuge was rugged and had undesirable forage and poor water. Bison prefer flatter ground and better food, so the bison crossed the road. The bison found private property that had been managed by the same family for over 100 years. Generations of water development and good grazing plans created desirable forage, so the bison helped... Full story

  • So Much To Do

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just A Thought|Nov 19, 2014

    This seems to be another week for a this and that column. For the past several months we've been attending Nashua volleyball games and the JAM basketball games as our granddaughter plays volleyball and we have two grandsons playing basketball. The time all these athletes have spent in practice was quite evident in their games. And I was impressed by the team work and sportsmanship displayed. A sports expert I'm not, but I feel that in a couple of years, the boys' JAM basketball team is going to be a tough team to go up against. Congratulations...

  • Article On Deputy Campaign Complaints Misleading

    Donna Dascher, Letter To The Editor|Nov 19, 2014

    Dear Editor: The article on the deputy campaign complaints on Wednesday, Nov. 5 was misleading. De minimis – adj. (dee-minnie-miss) Latin for “of minimum importance.” It is not “application de minimis, it is “de minimis.” The meaning is not as you stated. The Courier stated that it meant “the error was unintentional and it was corrected before the complaints were filed.” Misleading. This is quoted from the COPP, Jonathon R. Motl, of the State of Montana, “These violations are excused upon application of the de minimis principle such th...
