Transparency?!?

Letter to the Editor, I could comment on Trump, Jr's explanation of the infamous meeting he and (every day there is a new person added to the number) that met in Trump tower supposedly to get dirt on Hillary. But by the time this goes to press there...

 

Thank you for your quick response

Letter to the Editor, In regards to the fires in Landusky and Zortman, I would like to thank John Carnahan and his crew for their prompt and good work on the fires. John and his crew accomplished more for less money than all the rest combined. I...

If only I could have seen it

As wet as it’s been in some parts of Montana, it’s been dry as a bone in others. I haven’t seen rain in more than a month at my home in Malta or my cabin on Fort Peck. It rained in Malta last...

I just couldn't help myself

So I finally mustered the courage to watch a remake of my first favorite television show and as embarrassing as it is to write, I liked it. I was about five years old when the Mighty Morphin Power Ran...

Innovation key to future of our ag economy

Big changes are occurring in the fields and prairies of Montana. For the first time since 2003, the state’s ranchers may be delivering their beef across the Pacific to China and the new agriculture secretary is taking the reins. With one eye on...

 

These exciting times

These are exciting times in which we live. Instead of simply wishing for the good old days, we’re bringing them back -- doing away with onerous environmental safeguards and returning national monume...

A lot has changed since 22

Before the 2017 Gospel Jamboree, I did not think I could have anything in common with anyone in the Bluegrass community. Boy, was I wrong. From a musical aspect, I had never played Bluegrass music...

 

Birds of a feather flock together

Dear Editor, Another useless week in Washington - can we deduct from the United States congress a week’s pay for not getting anything done? Oh, but 13 elderly men on a committee with no women, brought forth a new nation's health system. Of course,...

I dream of potato salad

My parents came through for a few days. My real parents. You have no idea how awkward it is when people assume that my parents are around Malta when in actuality it was just another African American...

 

Fishing still figures

Among the things my father taught me fly fishing still figures prominently. I don’t know where he picked it up. Fly fishing certainly wasn’t common in the rural Illinois of his youth, but it...

The Drive of Shame

Get your mind out of the gutter. It wasn’t that kind of drive. I blew a tire for the first time. I admit I should’ve seen it coming, knowing that my tires had struggled to hold air in the winter...

 

Blink of an eye

It all goes too fast. Just yesterday, it seems, I was bundling up to go fishing: hat, gloves, long johns, facemask. Snow was still falling. The wind was cold. The water made my hands ache. Now it’s...

 

Can't hardly wait for each new day to unfold

Was nice to see Comey and his testimony - classic and professional. Of course Trump had to tweet and call him a lair. Typical elementary school ramblings as usual. Will be interesting when and if Trump keeps his promise to go before commission - if...

Halfway through 2017

A customer came in and noticed a Happy New Year sign at the PCN, reminding me that we are about halfway through 2017. This sign also reminded me of how a new year is typically stereotyped as a point...

 

'Sorry' to my garden

It’s not yet June and I’ve already got hunting on my mind. An elk tag arrived last week in the mail and the deadline for applying to hunt antelope is fast approaching. In a couple of weeks I’ll...

 

Chicken Chronicles: Part Duex

Dear Editor, Since chickens are very much on the minds of Malta City Councilmen recently, I will pass on information shared with me recently by relatives: Chickens are raised in Santa Rosa, Calif., Portland, Ore., besides the city of Centennial in Co...

You will be missed

Some sad news hit my family the other day. My godmother passed away and I have been pretty bummed out. I am thankful that my parents are still alive and that we never needed to use her for finding a...

 

The better-half knows I'm lazy

I used to fight it and try to look busy, feigning ambition when I had none. Whenever I was asked what I was doing I would reply appropriately. “Oh, I’m getting ready to do this or that,” I...

 

Curious about chickens in City

Dear Editor, I find it curious indeed that a small rural town like Malta, which prides itself on its agricultural heritage, rugged individualism, self-reliance, and disdain of governmental regulation would reject such a fundamental idea of the...

 

Special prosecutor and special election

Dear Editor, By now I am sure you know I am not a fan of Trump. I own a t-shirt that states "This shirt doesn't have enough room to list all that is wrong with the Trump administration." Being frustrated with a president that continuously whines...

Now I own a tractor

Somehow, something that was a tedious and sometimes strenuous chore became an experience that I never saw coming. My wife and I had been talking about upgrading our mower that cost me a whopping $35...

M-ettes headed to state

In my wildest dreams

It had been a long time since I’d had one of those dreams. They were a fairly common occurrence when I was younger and went without for more than a couple of days, but I’m much older now and,...

They call me 'Inspector Bibbs'

Sometimes being a photographer takes you weird places. I received a phone call from a loan company earlier this year to become an inspec-tor. Initially I was annoyed that an out of state company...
