  • Letter From PC Native on SB442

    Apr 10, 2024

    Dear Editor and Readers, Phillips County is my home. I often explain to people I grew up not knowing what political party our beloved neighbors, Dean and Carol Kienenberger, leaned toward or adhered to because my folks didn’t care so, therefore, neither did I. All I knew is we loved Dean and Carol and the girls - and we still do - and they loved us. Recently, my hometown state senator, Mike Lang, wrote a letter in the PCN and it made me so proud to be from where I grew up. Mike Lang is a good man - he holds the same values we were all raised wi...

  • It Will All Change In a Few Weeks

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Apr 10, 2024

    I’m ready for the color to return. I’m tired of all the washed-out hues -- browns, greys and off-whites melding on the horizon into a dull, featureless sky. Flowers have yet to bloom. Leaves have yet to pop. The residue of winter has yet to be washed from the land by spring rains. In town, the streets are dirty from a winter of sanding. Yards are showing only the slightest hint of green as four months' accumulation of dog poop makes its appearance after being hidden under the cover of snow. Fri...

  • The House Got a Little Lighter this Weekend

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Apr 10, 2024

    For the second weekend in a row, track meets around us were postponed due to weather. The first weekend, I did something that I loved. We went out of town to Medicine Hat and were tourists. The second weekend, this past weekend, I did something that I have mixed emotions about: Spring Cleaning! I’m a mostly positive person or try to be, so we will start with the positives. Things are organized, I found some “treasures,” and my wife is proud of the work that we did as a family. We were able...

    1 yrs ago Apr. 9, 2014 For three years, the City has been chasing the elusive “phantom” smell that plagues the downtown area.

This year’s essay topic was “volunteerism.” The third and fourth grade winners were: Addy Anderson, Kirsta Meisdalen, Nikki Nicholson, Brylee French, Emma Harms, Kevin Missildine, Aiden Kaasa, Trin...
