  • Holiday Cooking

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    Sweet potatoes have always been on the menu for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and what a shock to look for canned Sweet Potatoes, find a can on the shelf, only to find a can of CUT YAMS, read the ingredients, which are listed as SWEET POTATOES in light syrup. Is this false information or what? Technically they are not the same. Not really an issue as they are so similar, but I do find it interesting as to how things change over the years. I might mention if you might think you will buy a box of lemon pudding mix for your lemon pie check the...

  • Olio

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    You may be wondering why I titled this week's column as I did. I could have used a number of synonyms (assortment, conglomerate, hodgepodge, jumble, medley) but then I wouldn't have the built-in rather lame joke about olio not equaling oleo. One is based off the thick Spanish stew made of meats and veggies while the other refers to the various fats and oils used to make fake butter. This week's scribblings are neither a thick stew nor a fat fake. So, on to my hodgepodge: First, I'd like to...

The meetings included draft plans for regulating the system in 2023. “We will continue to make releases from Gavins Point Dam to provide flow support at a level 500 cubic feet per second above minimum service, through the end o...

  • Three Small Tanks With A Large Impact

    Kayla Walker Ranchers Stewardship Alliance, For the Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    If there is a water line to add, a tank to set, or a unique water set up to try, it's likely Dusty Emond has done it on his ranch south of Malta, Mont. Of the nearly 12 miles of pipeline on his place, six new miles were added just last fall following the harsh drought of 2021 to send water to an additional 7,500 acres that could not be utilized by cattle last summer due to a lack of water. However, along that pipeline there are yet to be any tanks. "Even this year, we will have at least 20,000...

  • COLA Is Sweet For Social Security Recipients

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    If you receive Social Security, you’ve probably already heard that your checks in 2023 will be bigger – considerably bigger, in fact. How can you make the best use of this extra money? Here’s what’s happening: For 2023, there’s an 8.7 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for Social Security benefits – the largest increase in 40 years. Also, the monthly Medicare Part B premiums are declining next year, to $164.90/month from $170.10/month, which will also modestly boost Social Security checks for those enrolled in Part B, as these premi...

  • Yesterday's Memories

    Compiled by Kirsten Keiser, The Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    1 Years Ago Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 After decades of putting up with blockages on the railroad crossing the middle of town, Nashua is going to have an overpass, according to a letter that Mayor Pat Hallett received from the Montana Department of Transportation and provided to The Courier. The Valley County commissioners have awarded a contract for the construction of a new concrete bridge on Canal Road west of Glasgow. The Federal Emergency Agency informed the commissioners that it would pay u...

  • Hear and Now

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    It’s often said we have two ears and one mouth for a reason. Our ears while more numerous, tend to fail us much more readily, with around 48 million Americans suffering from some degree of hearing loss. On the flip side of this, only one in five people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually ends up using one. In a move to help combat this, recent changes in the law make it much easier for an individual to obtain these small, but life changing devices. Let’s talk about what’s changed, how it’s made the market a much more consume...

The IRA directed USDA to expedite assistance to distressed borrowers of direct or guaranteed loans administered by USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) whose operations face financial risk. The announcement kicks off a process to p...

  • Hi-Line Hunt

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Nov 30, 2022

    When we left off last week, I was headed home to rest up for another day in the field. Before I collapsed into bed to prepare for a 5 a.m. wakeup call on Friday, I spent some time visiting with friends about my day in the field and the weather. My buddy Dave – in a mix of amusement and awe – kept chuckling, "Gwen Honrud in camo." Our talk of fashion turned to my boots, a pair of Bari Rookie boots which are essentially hockey boots without the skates. Though they boast 200 grams of Thi...
