The Allure of Old Pens

Recently, a friend gifted us with a large wooden cheese box full of pens and pencils of prior years. My thoughts kinda went to the “with friends like this, who needs enemies” but I will have to admit it was fun to look at each of these items and...

 

Letters to the Editor

Editor's Note: The following is a letter sent to the Army Corps of Engineers from Congressman Greg Gianforte. This is being reproduced here as it was alluded to in an article involving a similar letter sent by Jon Tester's office to the Corps...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Just west of our little ranch on North Willow Creek lies a town that once burst at the seams with mines and miners. Pony, Mont., boasted 5,000 people, banks, bars, schools, churches and a rail-line. Mines with romantic names like Boss Tw...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Let’s be honest. There is nothing glamourous or high-profile about the Office of Clerk of the Montana Supreme Court – nor should there ever be. While most Montanans don’t interact with the Clerk’s office, it is nevertheless an...

 

The Indefensible, New Defense of the Trade War

Wilbur Ross, defending new tariffs while appearing on CNBC Tuesday, 18 Sept., claimed Americans will not notice price increases because they will be “spread over thousands and thousands of products.” This may be true for many families and...

 

For Clerk of the Supreme Court

Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in support of Rex Rank as candidate for Clerk of the Montana Supreme Court. The office Rex seeks plays an important role in the licensure of attorneys in the State of Montana and maintaining records attendant to...

 

To the Volunteers of the Glasgow Fire Department

Dear Editor, I would like to thank the Glasgow Volunteer Fire Department, Valley County Long Run Fire Department, Valley County Sheriff’s Office, and Glasgow Police Department for their immediate response in addressing the gas leak on Glasgow’s...

 

Changing Veterans' Issues

While watching video of Matt Rosendale’s recent rally in Billings, I couldn’t help but feel disappointed, though not for the reasons I had expected. Rosendale, who is campaigning to represent Montana, spoke only briefly, while the President took...

 

In Search of the History

When reading a past issue of the Courier I commented on the photo on the Courier Memories page of the Northeast Montana Fair, date unknown. My comment was on the attire of the audience. Many men wearing suits and ties and all of the hats worn by the...

 

Harvest of Years Past

Another year, another harvest. Hopefully it was a good crop year. Watching combine operators unload wheat into trucks, I’m reminded of harvests of years ago. Now, so many farms are five and six times bigger than when we farmed. At that time it...

 

Setting the Record Straight on My Position on APR

Dear Editor, I am excited to be a candidate for Valley County Commissioner. The primary campaign was a very positive experience for me because of the great group of candidates who were all focused on how to serve Valley County in the best way possibl...

 

I Support the Chicken Ordinance

Dear Editor, I attended the city council meeting Aug. 20. Ordinance No. 959 was the topic for discourse. It stated, in part, to allow up to six Gallus gallus domesticus on a single family premise subject to the following requirements. The complete...

 

President Trump's Visit

Dear Editor, President Trump coming to Montana. We need to honor the President of the United States. I have not always voted for every former President but have always believed we are told to pray for those in authority. In past years many of my...

 

Trade, Not Aid

“Trade, not aid.” Pull up a random news article on the current trade dispute/war (wording depending on one’s personal bias) and you’ll most likely come across this refrain. Agricultural producers across the country continue to stress they...

 

Welcome Back Students and Teachers!

It was a big day in Glasgow on Aug. 29, as parents hustled their students out of the door with all of the necessary school supplies, which will be key tools to help make them succeed. Parents got their cell phones out and ready to capture the...

 

Disappointed About the Chickens

Dear Editor, I had hoped to read that the pro-chicken people would be crowing in victory but, alas, they were defeated, this time by negative clucking. This does seem like a strange outcome in a very rural, agriculturally-dependent community in The...

 

As I Perceived It

Dear Editor, The city council meeting was well attended for referendum 959-chickens in city limits. As you have read in the Courier and heard on KLTZ, the referendum failed 4-1 with one council member not in attendance. From what I’ve read and hear...

 

Back To School

School is the topic once again. Do you remember getting your school supplies for the school year? I have put a little thought into my past school years and cannot remember ever having a list of supplies for the first day, let alone for the year. Abou...

 

Why All The Negativity in Politics?

For the past few months, political campaign ads have been everywhere. It is absolutely astounding how much money has been and continues to be spent on these ads. Another part of the ads I find very disturbing is their negativity. So negative, in...

 

To the People of Valley County

Dear Valley County Voters, The final date to withdraw my name from the ballot for the primary election was this past Monday, Aug. 13. So after much deliberation and prayer, I have determined that I must continue centering all my focus and energy on m...

 

In Support of Tom Boyer

To my friends, my family, and you, the voters of Valley County, I’ve been listening to the highs and lows of this race for Valley County Sheriff and I am so relieved that you’ve finally hit calmer water. Your write-in candidate, Tom Boyer, is...

 

In Defense of Chickens in Town

Dear Editor, I am sure you have heard of the great chicken debate. It’s been the cluck of the town the past few weeks. I’d like to make some points on why chickens should be allowed and counterpoints to some of the reasons I have heard people...

 

New Chapters Await for Those Entering College

Well, she, along with many, many others, started a whole new chapter in her life today. Actually, it’s almost like beginning a new book. One with surprises, twists and turns, breathtaking adventures all throughout the book. A book that will take...

 

What Should We Do About Relay? Don't Just Complain, Get Involved

On Aug. 11, I had the pleasure of meeting cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters during the Northeast Montana Relay for Life. This was my first year participating in the event, and I was blown away at the solidarity everyone in attendance had...
