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...

Midwifery and Chocolates

Walking into our tiny living room before Christmas had become a yearly event for this older couple. There was a gift in hand which they presented to Mama and then relaxed to chat awhile. This pleasant-looking couple were no strangers to me as I had...

 

Heirloom Recipes

Our granddaughter, who will be college bound next month, asked me to write out a recipe for a dessert that I’ve made for almost 50 years. It’s also the dessert one of our sons asks for when it’s his birthday. After I wrote it out, I told her...

Sheep and Wool

Sunday was a day of reviving old memories. We took a scenic drive to the North Country, using a few back roads, and trying to remember who lived where back “then.” I will admit we were prompted to make the drive when I made a comment about not...

GCCL Provides Many Services to Public

Did you know that the month of July marks 110 years that the Glasgow City-County Library has been established? The historical background is that the people of Glasgow wanted a public library and reading room, so a meeting was called on Oct. 17,...

Perspective

Children can put things into perspective with just a few words. For instance, several days ago our six-year-old granddaughter was telling me about receiving her birthday present early from her mom and dad. Her present was a new bike. When she finishe...

Being Safe on the 4th

My first thought is to address the dishes that we used to see in days gone at restaurants. Yes, I did mention them just a short time ago, but when cleaning a few areas of my cupboard, I happened to wash a cup from that era. I found it interesting to...

Update on New Pool

Dear Editor, The Valley County Friends of the Glasgow Pool are proud to announce that they are currently working on plans and cost estimates for a new swimming pool. When we have solid numbers and design we will release more information and begin...

 

A Final Bid Farewell to the Bonnie City

Dear Glasgow, Glasgow, Montana. It's in the middle of nowhere. It isn't some super pretty mountainous area with tons of trees. We live in the less known, less desirable part of Montana. In the...

 

Dear Readers

Dear Readers, It is hard to believe it has been over two months since I started as the publisher here at the Courier. Harder to believe is everything that has happened in such a short amount of time. Not only have we covered oil spills, meth labs, a...

 

A Giant of a Man, He Was

When I was a small child, I’d look up at my father and think “He’s a giant.” As a grownup, I still thought of him as a giant. In many ways he was a man ahead of his time. He had a passion for learning, a passion he passed on to me. So often h...

 

Pool Props to VCFoP

Thank you, to the Valley County Friends of the Pool for a much anticipated update on their continued efforts to build a new pool in Glasgow. While details are still mostly unavailable to the public, these dedicated and committed community members...

Nostalgic Glasses

Do you remember drinking your morning orange juice out of juice glasses that had colorful flowers, little animals, maybe cartoon characters and Disney figures painted on them? These were no doubt recycled glasses as they originally held various...

The Show Must Go On

Dear Patrons, Friends and Supporters of Fort Peck Summer Theatre, I would like to apologize for not making an earlier announcement or disclaimer of the adult themes depicted in our current production of Cabaret. The title has been a frequently...

 

Honestly, You Didn't Know?

On this page you will see a letter from Andy Meyers, the artistic director at the Fort Peck Summer Theatre. I think this letter is unnecessary and it represents a problem many of us have. If it was not done for us then we won’t do it but we will...

 

We Need You to Help Us Cover Valley County

Every week, the team at the Glasgow Courier works hard to scout out the stories, to capture the essence of what is going on in Glasgow, the county and even the world. We ask the tough questions, we dig deep to get the correct facts, we make sure all...

 

Without Them This Would Not Be Possible

I attended three separate events in Fort Peck this weekend. There’s nothing special about that. What was noticeably special about it, is they were all heavily staffed by volunteers and funded by generous sponsors and organizations. I’m not good...

Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To

With this past weekend being Father’s Day, there were a lot of songs on radio and TV honoring our fathers. The one that caught my ear was “They Don’t Make ‘em Like My Daddy Anymore.” Having just spent some time with my father’s family...

 

In Support of a Local Pool

Despite a few issues that threatened to delay the opening, the city pool is open for the summer. A new coat of paint and some maintenance, thanks in large part to volunteer swim team families, will hopefully be enough to get us at least one more summ...

 

Hopes For a Panelling Renaissance

Nothing conjures up images of dim rooms with orange, shag carpet and floral curtains quite like someone mentioning wood paneling. The cheap, easy-to-install wall surface was popular throughout the '50s, '60s, and '70s. Eventually becoming too...

 

Art is All Around Us

While in Arizona several years ago, I attended an art show. Some of the works were for sale. One small painting of pansies caught my eye every time I walked by it. Finally, I decided to purchase that painting and bring it home. It now hangs in my...

 

Abdication of Duties

The media missed one of the bigger stories behind the nomination and withdrawal of Dr. Ronny Jackson to lead the Veterans Administration. The story wasn’t the gossip from coworkers or his inexperience leading a large bureaucracy. It wasn’t even...

Homemade Gifts

Remember days of the past when gifts from your female friends were most always homemade? I remember the fancy hankies that were tucked in your birthday card. Weddings found many gifts of hand-embroidered tea towels (dish towels) or pillow cases. I...
