Disrupted Plans

We had planned to head to the Outpost Cafe in Opheim on Valentine’s Day for their steak and shrimp special. Mother Nature intervened, disrupting our plans with a short but intense snowstorm. Our home is only about 50 yards from the highway, but in...

 

Creating Pleasing Combinations In The Kitchen

I’d copied a recipe from a magazine quite some time ago. It was held by a magnet on the exhaust fan cover above my stove top, where I saw it daily for months. I’d put it there so I’d be sure to try it. But there were ingredients I knew Dennis...

 

U.S. Marine Laid to Rest in Hinsdale

He died alone and was buried, with everything he owned, in a plywood box at a small cemetery in Hinsdale, Mont. That is the end to the story of Marine Bruce Powers, age of 79, after dying in the...

 

Meatballs and Alternative Slaw

I feel as though I don’t have much to talk about this week, but, being a woman, talk I will. We aren’t still in Florida, so there aren’t comparisons to be made between Montana and Florida flora. It’s a long time until spring returns, no...

 

Snowbirds? Us?

While shopping for fresh fruits and veggies last Thursday, I was greeted by a friend in the grocers. He accused me of being the cause of coming bad weather. (We did get snow flurries, a bit of rain, more heavy snow, and strong winds Saturday,...

 

Beaches, Landscapes and Palms

We are winding down our Florida sojourn. I am not looking forward to returning from this green semi-tropical paradise to our frozen white tundra. The grandsons had a weekend off from hockey, so we too...

 

O-Pine-Inated Report On Trees

We're still vacationing in Florida, and watching lots of hockey. We did throw in a real circus last weekend. The contrast of the heat under the big top to the chill of ice arenas was similar to walkin...

 

Parasitic vs Epiphytic Plants

We are in sunny Florida, visiting our middle daughter and her family. Don't be jealous. While it's sunny (for the most part - we did see lots of rain Saturday) and green, we're still experiencing...

 

Scottie Orators Win Another

The Glasgow Scottie Speech and Drama teams made their way to Sidney on Jan. 4 to compete in their annual invitational, which drew a large swathe of Class A, B and C schools from the region. The meet...

 

Frost, Feasts and Power Failures As Well As Reflections of 2019

Mother Nature gets a huge F for how it's treated us the past two holidays. I think we're all hoping the frost issues and power outages are over for good. I know the linemen (our heroes) hope the...

 

Christmas, Casseroles, Cooking

Merry Christmas! Due to the holiday falling on “going to press” day, this column is being written very shortly after last week’s piece. I’m sure next week’s will be due early, as well. Strange thing about New Years always following Christma...

 

Plants, Cats and Cooking

Just yesterday my husband noticed one of my older amaryllis bulbs is sending up a flowerbud. I have seven older ones sitting in their original pots in the south-facing dining room windows. I really...

 

Scottie Speech Team Claims First in Malta

The Glasgow Scottie Speech and Drama teams traveled to Malta on Dec. 14 for that school's speech and drama meet. The Scottie Speech team reclaimed their position on the top of the team point scores...

 

Another Week and Another Thanksgiving Passes By

Another week has come and gone. Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. The weather was not nice at all, so we stayed home, thankful for warmth, a well-stocked freezer, and each other. (We're also...

 

Wheatgrass Arts & Gallery Artist of the Month Featuring Glasgow Native

Glasgow native Jake Dix is definitely a unique artist. His eclectic style of painting is inspired by the 1980s artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and other modern expressionist artists. His artwork will be on display at the Wheatgrass Arts & Gallery through... Full story

 

Indoor Gardening

Let me offer up apologies for those of you who may have missed a column from me last week. I did write one, but it was all recipes for the holidays. So the Courier rightly put it into the holiday...

It was a full house at the FMDH Foundation's annual event, held Nov. 2, at the Cottonwood Inn. Board President Shelly George welcomed everyone, thanked them for coming out and discussed what the...

 

The Beauty's in the Details

Anyone who knows Mary Helland understands why she took on the challenge of renovating a hundred-plus-year-old building on Front Street in Glasgow. Mostly, it is because she loves the history of it....

Indoor Gardening and Cooking

Editor's Note: This column was written on Nov. 4. Due to space, we had to hold the column over to this week's issue. We've had yet more rain and some snow. Most of the earlier snow has melted away,...

 

Zombie Harvest Might Be Beheaded?

We managed to knock off another 1,000 acres of wheat, with some help from a neighbor. The remaining 1,000 acres will not get done. It’s all basically feed wheat now anyway. What’s left is mostly on the ground, where it will remain. We have a...

 

Resurrection Of Harvest

So when I wrote that harvest had been killed, I was wrong. It had merely been wounded, severely, but not dead. The resurrection has us back in the field, harvesting what's still standing tall enough...

Life Beyond Harvest

Editor's Note: This column was written on Oct. 7. Due to space, it was held over to this week's issue. We are done with worrying about our wheat crop. The snow and strong winds combined to finish it...
