  • Montana Supreme Court Sides With Governor Gianforte In Property Tax Dispute

    For the Courier|Nov 29, 2023

    After most of Montana’s counties tried to lower your property tax bill, arguing the state was levying too much, the Montana Supreme Court unanimously said Nov. 22 the state had it right after all. The Montana Supreme Court ordered counties levy the amount calculated by the state for schools in a ruling Nov. 22, the full 95 mills, after most county commissions had decided en masse to levy less than that amid concerns over high property taxes statewide. “Counties have authority to levy mills according to local interests. They also have...

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Nov 29, 2023

  • From Mayor Rod Karst

    Nov 29, 2023

    The following was written and read by Glasgow Mayor Rod Karst during the public comment period at the Nov. 20 City Council Meeting. This letter is printed with permission from Mayor Karst. Before we get started tonight, I want to take a couple of minutes to address an issue that has gotten out of hand on Facebook. I do not use Facebook for this simple reason, people can go online and act as judge and jury on things that they don’t have all the facts on and get others sharing their knowledge or lack thereof. The City of Glasgow and its...

  • Thanksgiving Dinner At Senior Citizens

  • Remember County School Picnics

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Nov 29, 2023

    Although I am submitting this and do remember these picnics, this was written by my significant other, Paul “Bud.” I will talk about Tampico School picnics in particular. I remember the site being the Bob Cornwell place across the Milk River from Tampico. This site was up by the mouth of Buggy Creek in a hay field along the river. We would cut the hay crop so there was a clear spot to play baseball. One time, as we arrived, someone hollered “Bud, catch.” I reached out and the ball caught the end of my thumb and bent it backward. Needles...

  • Do Your Investments Match Your Goals?

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Nov 29, 2023

    As you go through life, you’ll have various financial goals — and to achieve them, you’ll need to invest. But just recognizing the need to invest is not as useful as matching specific types of accounts or investments with specific goals. How can you make these connections? Let’s look at some common goals and how they could possibly be met with appropriate accounts and investments: • Saving for a down payment on a house – When you’re saving for a down payment, you want a certain amount of money available at a certain time — so,...

  • This And That

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Nov 29, 2023

    For the second week in a row, I was asked what I'd be writing about in my next column. And for the second week in a row my answer was, "I don't know." This speaks to my mastery of the art of procrastination. I should start jotting daily notes: "What did I do today? Is it something that might remotely relate to gardening?" But I probably won't do that, either. I'll stick with my bad habits. I'll suddenly realize it's Sunday afternoon/evening, and the column still hasn't been written, and I'll...
