    Dane Osen, For the Courier|Nov 23, 2016

    The Apple Trolley, located next to Crazy Woman Quilts in Glasgow's Plaid Square, is now offering soups to add to their menu of sweets and other snacks. Owner Joy Guttenberg is preparing the soups from scratch, and will be switching up the shop's menu from week to week. The idea came to Guttenberg while she was craving soup at work. She kept finding local eateries' stocks sold out Admitting jokingly that her decision to offer soup was out of selfishness, she recognized the opportunity to expand... Full story

  • The Best Part of Raising a Huge, Tremendous Family

    A.J. Etherington, Valley County Voices|Nov 23, 2016

    Not that I mind, the shocked faces, or even looks of pure horror, I get when I inform people that I am a father of four awesomely well adjusted and outstanding children, and oh by the way my wife is also expecting our fifth. I usually kind of chuckle saying, ‘while I’m a good little Catholic boy,’ under my breath, while they regain their composure and try to hold back the questions obviously racing through their minds. Sometimes though I am attacked on some principal stemming back to when they were children in a family of six or seven, and u...

  • Open Hearts

    Tess Fahlgren, Truth Nukem|Nov 23, 2016

    Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I’m the youngest of six, so when I was growing up, Thanksgiving meant my siblings who had gone off to college came home, filling the house with the comfortable noise and familiarity I missed while they were gone. Of course there’s the food, and the good weather and the promise of Christmas vacation coming up, but the gift of Thanksgiving is the intention: family, conversation, and simply being together. Those of us who were lucky enough to experience a large family know that it isn’t alway...

  • Remembering Business

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Nov 23, 2016

    Do you ever drive down the streets of your town and remember all of the businesses that used to be? I didn’t spend all of my early years in Glasgow and I don’t remember all the business that used to be, even in the early 60s, however I do have some friends that remember a lot of them. Now, I credit their good memory to the fact that they may have had jobs that required delivery at the residence or building. We have had daily newspaper delivery, I think from both Courier and State daily papers. Then grocery stores delivered a lot of gro...

  • Listen to the Quiet: Part 9

    Helen DePuydt, Saco Stories|Nov 23, 2016

    Diamond willows brought from the Frenchman Creek have played a unique role in the lifetime of Otto Kientz, providing him with a handy supply of slender but sturdy fence posts. Sixty years is an unbelievably long life for a post supporting several strands of barbwire and holding up under the stress of cattle rubbing, exposure to the elements, the weight of snow banks and accumulations of Russian thistles caught in the barbs of the fence. But these locally grown willow posts are still solidly supporting the fence surrounding the Kientz fields...

    Courtesy of the USDA, For the Courier|Nov 23, 2016

    This week millions of Americans will gather family and friends around the dinner table to give thanks. But for those preparing the meal, it can be a stressful time. Not to mention, for many it is the largest meal they have cooked all year, leaving plenty of room for mistakes that could cause foodborne illness. “Unsafe handling and undercooking of food can lead to serious foodborne illness,” said Deputy Under Secretary for Food Safety Al Almanza at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). “Turkeys may contain Salmonella and Campy... Full story
