  • The British Were Coming!

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Apr 22, 2015

    A couple of unusual visitors made their rounds around the area this weekend. They were fairly inconspicuous, but their accents were a dead giveaway to anyone who came across them. Michelle Crowther, a series producer from London, made a call a few weeks ago to see what interesting things might be around Glasgow and what kind of interesting characters might be lurking. Her mission was to scout out the trip that would be made across America on Amtrak by famous Scottish comedian Billy Connolly. The... Full story

  • Check It Out

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Apr 22, 2015

    Giving a little bit that will go a long way has become an annual tradition for the Valley County Community Foundation (VCCF). Several community members gathered on Monday, April 20, at the Valley Event Center to be presented with a check to help out with community projects. Meggan Walstad opened up before presenting checks to representatives from different entities by explaining that an endowment was set up in 1999 with the hopes to help give to local organizations and support local projects...

  • Nashua School Board Faces Controversy

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Apr 22, 2015

    For the small town of Nashua, quite a few (just over a dozen) showed up to the local school board meeting to not only voice their concerns, but to see if they could get an answer for a recent event that has left some parents feeling unsettled. Before the meeting got down to business, parents spoke up during the public comment segment. Bonnie Dunning Wooley brought up a letter from the school board about Individual Education Plan (IEP) not being completed in time. She said she also had concerns about the recent release of staff members (para...

  • Trees In Focus Here For Earth Day

    Bonnie Davidson, The Courier|Apr 22, 2015

    While Earth Day isn’t a widely celebrated day, there has been more focus on trees in the last few years in Valley County. This year on Earth Day the health department will have a community stroll – and there has been discussion about a possible community cleanup day in the future to celebrate the day and promote keeping the community clean. Free Trees Valley County has been continuing their free tree day each year for several years. Up to today they’ve distributed 10,000 trees, and an additional 2,000 trees will be distributed this year. The f...

  • Turn The Page

    Jim Orr, The Courier|Apr 22, 2015

    Five years, four months. That's how long I've been publisher of The Glasgow Courier – definitely the fastest and among the most rewarding five years, four months, of my life. This edition of The Courier is the last with me as publisher. I've accepted a position to be editor of a small daily newspaper in Pennsylvania, The Ellwood City Ledger. It's an exciting opportunity with a fine media company for me to do what I do and be near family in Western New York and Western Pennsylvania. This move, for me, isn't about leaving Valley County and The Co... Full story

  • What To Take To Bed With You

    Janet Bailey, My Opinion|Apr 22, 2015

    Put your car keys beside your bed at night. Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your doctor's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for...

  • I Remember Him Like It Was Yesterday

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Apr 22, 2015

    My first memory of The Glasgow Courier was when it was published in the office located in the Rundle Building. There have been many changes since that time, not only in location, but staff and editors. And what a change to have colored pictures in our newspaper! And now another change. I received a call from publisher Jim Orr the other day. I understand that this will be his last issue before leaving our community to return to his home state of Pennsylvania. Being a family person myself, I understand how nice it is to live close to family....

  • Kids Need To Stop Being Slobs, Dropping 'F' Bombs

    Donna Dascher, Letter To The Editor|Apr 22, 2015

    Dear Editor: I seriously don’t know where to begin. I am seeing a lot of what is being worn and what is being said by the fourth through sixth graders at the East Side School. Holy cow!!!! They may as well wear pajamas. Is there absolutely no dress code now in the Glasgow school system?? While our granddaughter lived in Fort Worth, Texas and was enrolled in school there, all the kids wore polo shirts, with collars, and khaki pants or shorts. It was very strict, but you know what? They looked great. They looked clean and happy. They seemed to b...

  • God's Judgment Looms: Supreme Court Has Been Warned

    Barry Beard, Letter To The Editor|Apr 22, 2015

    Scripture warns that perversions violate the law of the land ... (Leviticus 18:22-30). A team of lawyers, acting on behalf of a number of Christian and liberty-focused organizations, has told the U.S. Supreme Court that to mandate same-sex marriage is to invite God's judgement. The Supreme Court is to hear arguments later this month in a case coming from the 6th U.S. Court of Appeals in which judges said that state residents are allowed to define marriage in their state. The appeal to the Supreme Court contends barring same-sex marriage...
