  • Week's Worth of Frigid Temps and Blowing Snow

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    This past week was a chilly one for those in Valley County as an Arctic air mass moved into the region, causing havoc on last-minute shopping plans, travel plans and even prevented people from leaving or coming to the area for the holidays as expected. Schools started winter break a day or two earlier, the Amtrak train kept getting delayed, and those who did decide to venture out within the city were advised to drive with caution due to slippery roads and to cover themselves with warm clothing,...

  • Local Comes Back To Manage Reynolds

    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Dec 28, 2022

  • A Reminder To Take Care Of Yourself This Holiday Season!

    CARE Coalition Member, For the Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    One definition of self-care is the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular, during periods of stress. It’s very important to take the time to evaluate your own state of mind and pursue what will make you the best version of yourself. This allows you to be your best self not only for you, but those around you as well! Some ways to start incorporating self-care habits into daily life are saying no when your plate is full, taking time in the morning or in the evening to do something you...

  • Help Save Skilled Nursing Facilities

    Dec 28, 2022

    Dear Editor, As Montanans, we care for each other. Across the rural-urban divide, generational divide, and Brawl of the Wild divide.

They have served Montana well, and at this final stage in their lives seek the promise of compassionate, medically appropriate care. Most of them are out of money, have used up their care options with family members and loved ones, and cannot afford...

  • Christmas Gift Giving

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    How many of you mothers received a bottle of Evening in Paris Cologne, in that lovely blue bottle, for a Christmas gift or a fancy lace handkerchief for Christmas? Many men receive hankies for gifts also. If hubby or Daddy was an outside person his hankie was usually blue or red but if you were an inside professional, the choice would have been a white hankie. I have seen the colored men’s hankies in stores today, but I don’t see the fancy boxed hankies. These must all be a thing of the past. I am sure that there is a list of present-day fav...

  • Orchidmania

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    We're on our annual winter trip to "sunny" Florida to have the Christmas holiday with our middle daughter and her family. So far, while we have seen the sun off and on, it hasn't been particularly warm. The beach trip may not happen (sorry, Todd). We didn't pack enough pants and long-sleeved shirts! We've already spent a day at an icy-cold hockey rink watching the middle grandson play in a couple games. (The oldest grandson, in college, has skipped hockey this winter.) We've also spent an...

  • Three's a Crowd

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    Starting a new business venture can be daunting, expensive and fraught with risk. Even once your million dollar idea has become a reality, you’re then tasked with marketing it. After all, how can people buy your stuff if nobody knows it’s for sale? What if there were a way, then of lessening your risk and raising awareness of your product or service while simultaneously locking in buyers? All of this, potentially before you’re even out of the initial design phase. Happily, such a thing exists, is proven and has meant big bucks for those leverag...

  • Hi-Line Hunt

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Dec 28, 2022

    Following my wildly successful – by my standards – first two bird hunting excursions with Ken Jansa I stopped by his home to retrieve his photos of our second outing. He had been out several times since, taking out another first-time goose hunter and joining a family of out-of-state hunters on their hunt. His eyes sparkled as he said, "We're going out again tomorrow if you want to join us." A jumble of reactions flashed through my mind in rapid fire, "Well, the weather is supposed to be war...
