  • Help For Your Home Energy Bill

    Nov 22, 2023

    Dear Editor, Many Montanans have heard about Energy Share of Montana, but may not realize exactly what it does. Energy Share helps Montanans who are facing loss of heat or lights in their homes and who have no resources to pay the bill themselves. Assistance is situationally-based, not income-based. This means that even if someone has an income that is higher than normal poverty guidelines, if their situation is such that they're about to lose their heat or lights and they have no money in the...

  • What Should You Know About RMDs?

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Nov 22, 2023

    You may spend decades contributing to various retirement accounts. But for some accounts, such as a traditional IRA and 401(k), you must start withdrawing funds at a certain point. What should you know about this requirement? To begin with, the rules governing these withdrawals — technically called required minimum distributions, or RMDs — have changed recently. For many years, individuals had to begin taking their RMDs (which are based on the account balance and the IRS’ life expectancy factor) when they turned 70½. The original SECURE Act of...

  • Cost Of Thanksgiving Dinner Down Slightly From Record High In 2022

    Montana Farm Bureau Federation, For the Courier|Nov 22, 2023

    Gathering around the table for a Thanksgiving dinner won’t take as much of a toll on your pocketbook this year compared to 2022, but the meal still reflects historically high costs. The American Farm Bureau Federation’s 38th annual survey provides a snapshot of the average cost of this year’s classic holiday feast for 10, which is $61.17 or less than $6.20 per person. This is a 4.5 decrease from last year’s record-high average of $64.05, but a Thanksgiving meal is still 25 percent higher than it was in 2019, which highlights the impact high su...

  • Bringing In The Green?

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Nov 22, 2023

    I’m enjoying the indoor greenery, but I’m not talking about bringing a tree into the house. I know many people are putting up their Christmas trees at this time, or have already done so. I’m not one of those. Since we’ve been spending the holiday season with our daughter and family in Florida, my artificial tree hasn’t been out of storage for years. My shooting star Hoya has been trying to bloom for the past six weeks, but kept dropping the buds before they opened. I decided the cause was lack of proper drainage. I purchased clay beads (re...
