  • Carney Runs for Commissioner

    James Shipman, For the Courier|Jan 31, 2018

    Editor’s note: The most recent addition to the list of candidates for Valley County Commissioner is Jim Uphaus. Check back for more candidate profiles in coming weeks. We have another newcomer to local politics. His name is Mike Carney. As former business owner and Boy Scout of America volunteer, Carney is looking to take a new direction in life by running for the Valley County Commissioner seat. Anyone that knows him, knows they can call him anytime they need a hand. Even though he has zero experience in public office, Carney says he is r...

  • Alcohol Compliance Checks, Highway Crash

    James Walling, The Courier|Jan 31, 2018

    Members of the law enforcement community in Glasgow attended a suicide prevention training course on Jan. 29. Valley County Undersheriff (and current candidate for sheriff) Luke Strommen was among the attendees. According to Sheriff Vernon Buerkle, alcohol compliance checks are planned at area businesses in coming weeks and months. Sheriff Buerkle stressed that the checks are designed to increase compliance restricting sales of alcohol to minors. If you operate a point of sale location in Valley County, this means you. Despite a public notice...

  • Reynolds Awards Donations to Area Causes

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Jan 31, 2018

    Reynolds Market in Glasgow recently awarded its first Friends of Reynolds (FOR) donations to participating non-profit groups since the program’s inception last fall. Hi-Line Sportsmen Club, the Evangelical Church, Hi-Line Youth Hockey and the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council were some of the first area non-profit groups to sign-up for the program, and over the past quarter, Reynolds has added up a percentage of the total purchases made by the members of these organizations and community members in support of these organizations. Any non-profit g...

  • Russ Fagg

    Tom McGillvray, Billings|Jan 31, 2018

    I have known Russ Fagg for over 25 years. When you know someone a long time, you see what they are made of. Russ served as a Montana district judge for 20 years in Yellowstone County. Judges have the title "Honorable" in front of their names. This is not just a title for Judge Fagg, it is a description of his character. Russ is a man of honor and integrity. He does what he says, he is transparent and there is nothing false about him. I don't know about others, but that is a key character trait I am looking for in someone I vote for. Is he/she...

  • Pet Rescue

    Sierra Stoneberg Holt, Horse Ranch|Jan 31, 2018

    My family was sorry to hear that Cindy was denied her permit to continue operating her pet rescue. Clover has really completed our family. She's polite to the other animals, both wild and domestic. She's equally happy to spend all day either running and working cows with horsebackers or lounging around being Jason's writing buddy. She was Zora's first 4-H project and an enthusiastic participant in the fair. She courageously saved the life of my mom's beloved old dog when a cow attacked her....

  • Outside Skating Rinks

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jan 31, 2018

    Do you remember outside skating rinks? Being a long-time resident of Valley County, I remember when almost every community had an outdoor skating rink. If you lived in a larger community like Glasgow, you had the luxury of several different skating sites. On the other hand, if you were from one of the surrounding smaller communities, there was one skating pond where the skaters gathered. No age limits either. I assume time of day had a lot to do with the age of the people skating. It does make me sad to think of the fun the young miss out on...

  • A Few Tests for Tester

    James Shipman, Valley County Voices|Jan 31, 2018

    The election cycle is picking up steam and campaigning is well underway. While it is important to pay attention to what each candidate has said, it is also important to look at what each candidate has done. This proves more true for an incumbent candidate like Jon Tester. As one of our state's senators, he has a large presence on the national scale for Montana. Has he truly fought for what is in the best interest of Montana and its citizens? What are his plans moving forward for our state and our nation? And most importantly, is he really the...

  • Hearing History

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Jan 31, 2018

    Last week, I wrote about a gentleman who lived next door to us -- Grandpa Hjort. I learned a great deal from him. As I thought about him later on, it came to mind that Grandpa Hjort was like so many older people I visited with when I was growing up. People, such as a lady who lived a few houses west of us. Her husband was killed in an accident while working on railroad tracks. She told me of how six men came to her house with her husband’s body on an old door and of how she cleaned him, put clean clothes on him, then called the sheriff and u...

  • Land Sales, Grabs

    Alec Carmichael, I Digress|Jan 31, 2018

    Over the past month it was made public that the Interior Department, the one run by Ryan Zinke, proposed the“disposition of federal real property,” in an effort to pay for infrastructure projects. Zinke of course denied it, and has recently told Field and Stream, Outdoor Life and Sportsmen’s groups that there was no such plan to sell off public lands. The leaked proposal contradicting the promises of the administration is not new, but it is still concerning. Once again, Zinke has played second fiddle to Trump’s tormentors, I mean adviser...

    Jan 31, 2018

    Sidney "Sid" D. Sulser, 85, passed away early in the morning of Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, while at RiverStone Hospice House in Billings, Mont. He was born on July 12, 1932, to Ethel and Samuel Sulser in Augusta, Mont. He grew up in Great Falls with his brother, Jay, where he attended the Catholic School system through the 1st grade. He was never very fond of non-sports-related uniforms and he did not think much of the knickers his mother had him wear to the Catholic school; sure enough, he was...

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Jan 31, 2018
