  • First-Hand Experience Leads to Benefit for Foster Kids

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    When people hear the name, "Jenn Calkin," immediately you think of her amazing talents behind the camera. She has captured many weddings, taken many first images of babies in the community, provided parents memories of their growing child and have even captured families' love and support of each other during family photo sessions. At her new studio in downtown Glasgow, 233 4th St. S., she is able to provide the opportunity to capture images of children age birth to four that will be cherished...

    Jennifer Fuller, For the Courier|Dec 12, 2018

  • A Belated Thank You to Hi-Line Ford

    Gwendolyne Honrud, Community Commentary|Dec 12, 2018

    Back in October, I set out on a long-anticipated road trip. Years had passed since I last ventured out alone on an extended journey out of state. I was excited to travel and to see relatives after many years. Nestled into my new-to-me car, one that wouldn’t leave a slug-like trail of oil everywhere, I settled in my snacks and podcasts. I made it all the way to a mile outside Nashua before my gremlin gene kicked in. The check engine light had come on. Knowing that I know nothing about cars, I returned to Glasgow and found Josh Sillerud of Hi-Lin...

  • Christmas Caroling

    Gwen Cornwell|Dec 12, 2018

    Remember when youth groups and others had Christmas caroling on their agendas? First, I must admit that I do not live in town and there may still be many carolers, however I think this might be a thing of the past. I am pretty sure the means of transportation for the young people is a thing of the past. I have vague memories of Christmas carolers singing from a sled pulled by a team of horses. This of course progressed to a wagon (complete with straw bales for seating) being pulled with a pickup, or “truck” depending on your location. The upd...

  • Unshelved: How Do You Dewey?

    Megan Haddix|Dec 12, 2018

    The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system was developed by Melvil Dewey in 1873 and published in 1876. Libraries either use the DDC or the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system to organize materials. The DDC is a system that organizes assigned numbers to subjects. This makes it so that materials can be shelved with other items of similar topics, and found easily in a library. The DDC is the most widely used system in the world, for public and small academic libraries, to organize and classify books by fields. There are 10 main...

  • Be a Responsible Host This Season

    Valley County DUI Task Force, For the Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    The winter holidays are a time to enjoy the company of family, friends and coworkers. Whether you are planning a dinner, informal gathering, or holiday party, your job as host is very important. Your many responsibilities include planning the menu, entertainment, gifts and games. However, some of the most crucial details can be overlooked in all of the frenzy. Perhaps your most important responsibility as a host, specifically for a gathering where alcohol is involved, is to take steps to ensure your guests’ safety both during and after the c...

  • Barber Pole Goes up On Front Street

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    By Mary Helland's recollection, for the first time in over at least 20 years a barber pole is spinning on Front Street and the first time in a few years an actual barber is again cutting hair and shaving faces in the Bonnie City. Shelbie Irvin, barber and owner of the newly minted Whistle Stop Barber Shop, has taken up residence in the old Stan's Saloon building on Front Street next to the Montana Bar. Helland has undertaken the monumental task of renovating the more than century old Stan's Salo...

  • Snow and Soup

    Mary Honrud, The Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    Some of you might cluck your tongues at me, but I’ve already opened and used two of my this year’s Christmas presents. The snowblower arrived Thursday night, and was assembled by noon on Friday, and in use before dark. I’d have used it as soon as it was assembled, but had to wait while the batteries charged. I’m really going to enjoy this present. I can tell, though, that I’m going to have to get it going before we drive out of the garage and pack the snow down. It did chunk out more of that packed snow than I thought it would. I just have...

  • Lady Scotties Kick Off Season with Pair of Wins

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    The Lady Scotties kicked off the 2018-2019 basketball season with a 2-0 winning streak. They hosted Roundup in their first game of the season on Dec. 6, and traveled to Baker to face off against the Lady Spartans on Dec. 7. "The win against Roundup was a nice one for us," said head coach Travis Nielsen. "They are a well-coached, hard-working, disciplined team." He explained that the win against Baker was nice too, although they don't have the same caliber of players overall. Nielsen attributes t...

  • Scotties Fall to Roundup in OT Nailbiter, Lose to Baker on the Road

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|Dec 12, 2018

    The Scottie boys basketball team suffered two losses this past week, with a disappointing loss to the Roundup Panthers in overtime on Dec. 6 and a loss to the Baker Spartans on the road Dec. 7. The Scotties struggled to maintain control of the ball in both contests, with an average of 25 turnovers per game, however there was a marked improvement from the game vs. Roundup to the game vs. Baker. "I'm just hoping that was first-game jitters," head coach Norm Braaten said with a shrug. "We had five...
