Remembering After School Days

School will be starting soon. Do you remember your after school time in your early teen days? I remember that many of the town kids gathered at the local drugstore after school. Can you remember peanuts in a bottle of Coke or Pepsi being the...

 

Harvest Thoughts

This year, due to health issues, I wasn’t able to be at the fair as much or as long as I wanted to. I was able to see what my grandchildren entered in 4-H and their awards. Looking at all the entries, both individual and club, I was very impressed...

 

Unshelved at GCCL: Positive Change

We are very grateful for the many services and positive changes we have been able to offer to the patrons of Valley County. The internet, mobile apps and devices have enabled us to reach many milestones to serve the community and beyond. And our...

 

A Fair Appreciation: Looking Back and Looking at the Present

Compiling the Yesterday’s Memories feature for the Courier has been a fun exercise in learning a lot more of the history of our area, and also an education in just how cyclical the news can be. So many stories from years ago could be plucked out of...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am not sure where I want to start with this article, but I am concerned about the future of our NEMT Fair. Yes, I am old generation, and my memories of the fair start back to early years when my family and I lived in town, that being...

 

Civics, Chickens and Change

Regardless of how you feel about having chickens in town, there is no denying that Madelyn House has taken an issue she is passionate about and engaged the community in a positive and impactful way. I think the result of that labor was on full displa...

 

Relay for Life is Coming, Hope You're Going

This past fall, I lost my Aunt Sue to cancer. The diagnosis came too late for treatment. I was on my way to the Billings airport when I received news that she had passed. I had a chance to talk to her the day before, telling her things I should have...

 

Finally Enjoying the Fair with Family and Friends

After three years of being a Glasgow resident, I was finally able to make it to the NEMT Fair. I had always thought of the fair as being an exclusive event for 4-H kids to sell their livestock, for buyers who had an interest in purchasing livestock,...

 

Remembering the Fair's of Years' Past

It is time to submit an article to my Courier friends and I am sitting here a complete blank. Since the fair is fresh in my mind I have decided that will be my topic for the week. Remember when the exhibit buildings used to be full? Remember when...

Thank You to Fish, Wildlife and Parks for Your Work at Duck Creek

Dear Editor, This letter is a thank you to the Fish, Wildlife, & Parks Department for upgrading the boat ramp/parking at Duck Creek. With my husband recently having Open Heart Surgery and degenerative arthritis, it is so nice to have the handicap...

 

Applying Doctrine in a Trade War

At times, it can feel as if the only certainty with the current administration in Washington, D.C., is uncertainty. Where ever you stand on supporting or not supporting this president, it is hard to argue that he has been a stabilizing force in...

 

How to Help Out Those Surviving

Quite often I’ve heard, “I don’t have cancer. But is there anything I can do other than make a monetary donation to help people who do have cancer?” Oh, my, yes, there is! And many of those ways are so simple. For instance, housekeeping...

 

Remembering Dement Beach

Does anyone remember Dement Beach, which was located about 12 miles northeast of Opheim and 8 miles north of Glentana? Having spent most of my teen years in this area it is mind boggling to me that there was actually a swimming resort, or bath...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Residents, Recent surveys in Valley County show that people in our area understand that families experience mental health issues with a family member. The surveys also showed that a great majority feel that behavioral health problems should be... Full story

Not a Survivor, Just a Supporter

I’m not a cancer survivor. I’m also not a primary caregiver for anyone in my family who has had cancer. I’m from a large family and have found out that the longer I live, the more cancer is becoming part of my family, friends and... Full story

 

Setting Goals

Cancer survivors are asked a lot of questions. One frequent one is how you manage to keep going. At times it is difficult to keep fighting. When I was having weekly chemotherapy treatments following my surgery, a friend was also in the process of...

 

A Montana Story

Sometimes unexplainable events live in your heart and are told to grandchildren eager to hear yet another one of grandma’s tales. One of my South Carolina grandchildren asked for a story. I related to her about seeing the Electrolux (vacuum) salesm...

 

Kudos To All The Mothers Out There

As mothers might agree, being a mother is hard work. Balancing the life of raising children, working in order to contribute to expenses, keeping laundry caught up, dishes washed and a house livable, while also taking care of yourself and keeping...

What Used To Be There?

Do you ever drive down 2nd Ave. So., and try to remember what business was in a certain location? I think of Buttrey, the grocery and clothing store, and wasn’t there a furniture store also? The old Orpheum theatre, Strom Logan, Farmers...

 

Corrections

Last week the Glasgow Courier printed two innaccuracies in their stories. In the first story, Boat Fire at Fort Peck Marina. We stated that the boat had been docked when it caught fire. This was clarified later and the boat was not docked but had pul... Full story

 

Storms,Time and International Borders

We were standing in a field looking at radar on an iPhone and trying to figure out our next move. The storm we wanted to chase was rapidly moving north into Canada, and I was without a passport. My companion wasn’t going to mention it but you could...

 

Slow Down

Children often remind me of what I fail to see, hear, or understand. For instance, the excitement of children when they see the first dandelions of the year. How happy they are to present the bright yellow flower to people, especially mothers and...

 

CDC Retraction Leaves Questions About Farmer Suicide Rates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last month retracted an erroneous report on suicide rates that misclassified farmers as Triple-F workers, farming, fishing, and forestry, when the correct classification for farmers under federal...

 

Thank You to All the Transplants Who Help Keep Glasgow Great

Dear Editor, I was disappointed to read the recent personal attack against AJ Etherington because he is an “outsider.” When I met AJ he was proudly serving his country in the military, and I know him to be very professional in his actions, and I...

Transplant's Take

Dear Editor, Intolerance. The Holocaust. Wars. Terrorism. It was a common theme when I saw the Holocaust Museum recently (not just Jewish faith, but those who were gay, mentally/physically ill, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc). When I went to Arlington...
