    Compiled by Reece Hunsley|Aug 9, 2023

    1 Years Ago: Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013 "The bottom line is, do you want $200,000 in taxes a year or not?" said Valley County Commissioner Dave Reinhardt on Tuesday.

The proposed wind farm south of Opheim is still in the negotiation stage with several pieces hanging in the air. The commissioners asked themselves if the project needed the abatement.

  • 36th Annual Montana Governor's Cup Walleye Tournament

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jul 19, 2023

    Smoke hung thick over Fort Peck Lake this past weekend, though whether it was wildfires or fishing rods burning up is hard to say. The top three teams in this year's Gov Cup walleye tournament brought in a combined 309.60 pounds of fish over two days. Brem Phillips and Clyde Phillips, both of Jordan, Mont., hauled in 104.32 pounds to take the $15,000 check, the championship rings, and plaques home to the south side of the lake this year. The father-son duo reeled in 52.22 pounds on day one and...

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Jul 15, 2020

    Early mornings. Long days. Short nights. Those are just a small part of what goes into putting on the annual Montana Governor's Cup Walleye Tournament. But the results are more than worth it, particularly when records are shattered. The first record fell Nov. 1, 2019 when the tournament's 200 slots were filled in one hour, one minute, the fastest that has ever happened. Fast forward to July 10 and 11 when the anglers hit the water. Last year, Adam Morehouse and Matt Poole set a new two-day...

    Gwendolyne Honrud, The Courier|Nov 6, 2019

    One hour and one minute. At 9:31 a.m. the Montana Governor's Cup Walleye Tournament was unofficially full. While Glasgow Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture Executive Director Lisa Koski was expecting people to be camped outside their door the morning of Nov. 1, she did not expect the tournament to fill up as quickly as it did.

    It was early Friday morning, July 12, and 200 boats had filled the waters of the Fort Peck Marina waiting for their wave to get flagged out.

  • Governor's Cup Goes Off With a Splash

    Patrick Burr, The Courier|Jul 15, 2015

    At 6:45 Friday morning, 200 boats lowered their motors into Fort Peck Marina's placid waters, waited as their drivers cleared the bilge from their hidden underbellies, and, upon finishing the cleansing, sped out to various coves and fishing hotspots across the lake's 245,000 acre expanse. The day's nascent sunbeams danced tiptoe upon the glistening pond. Birds chirped their universal, throaty approval, albeit in different pitches up and down the tonic gamut. The 28th annual Montana Governor's...
