  • Bountiful Bovine

    Apr 13, 2016

    When HA Cowboy Up 5405 strutted into the ring at Hinman Angus' auction last Tuesday in Malta, those who know their bulls knew that the 1,619 pound angus was about to start fireworks that would be seen across the state of Montana and beyond. HA Cowboy Up is the son of HA Outside 3008 – a pedigree that goes back 14 animals – and when the final bid had been accepted and the gavel hit the auctioneer's block, Hinman Angus' "bull of a lifetime" sold for a whopping $350,000 – one of the highest ever...

  • Hi-Line Has-Beens looking to defeat Harlem Ambassadors

    Mark Hebert, Editor|Apr 13, 2016

    The Harlem Ambassadors, in their 18 years as a basketball team, have compiled a record of 3,000-0, but if the Hi-Line Has-Beens have anything to say about it, that winning streak will come to an end on May 2 when the undefeated team comes to Malta. "Streaks are meant to end and records are meant to be broken," said Has-Beens small forward Jake Stuart. "I think we will beat them by eight and we will probably score about 200 points." Stuart and the Has-Beens have been holding practices for the... Full story

  • Malta second graders host 11th annual Dinosaur Museum

    Rosemary S. Veseth, PCN Correspondent|Apr 13, 2016

    How much do you know about a dilophosaurus? Maybe you would like to hear about the velociraptor or the pterodactylus. These and many other types of dinosaurs were recently on display in Mrs. Veit and Mrs. Blunt's second grade classes at Malta Elementary School last Monday. Mrs. Blunt reports that this is the 11th year that second graders have worked on this special science project. The children spend about two weeks learning all about different dinos and then hold an open house for family and...

  • No more living on the edge

    Parker Heinlein, Columnist|Apr 13, 2016

    There but for the grace of God goes me. The death of a woman who was swept over Pine Creek Falls in Paradise Valley last week is a sobering reminder of how dangerous this place we call home can be. A lot of folks out here enjoy life on the edge. Where one wrong move can mean death. Mountain climbing, skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, hang gliding and whitewater kayaking all involve a certain amount of risk. But it’s not always the riskiest endeavours that lead to accidents. Hiking, f...

  • Let's look for collaborative solutions to land and wildlife management issues

    Leslie Robinson, P.C. Commissioner|Apr 13, 2016

    In Phillips County, we’re well known for our strong ranching community. However, we also have some terrific hunting that attracts sportsmen and women from all over the state and nation every fall. We, as ranchers, have a tremendous appreciation for the wildlife, and we provide both habitat and water sources for that wildlife. From antelope to elk, to mule deer and whitetails, to upland game birds, we are blessed with a large array of game animals. This is why our ranch, the Lazy JD Cattle Company, is proud to take part in the Block Management p...

  • Trip to Phillips County inspires future tales

    Apr 13, 2016

    Just returned to Iowa from helping someone move to your neat little town. Shopped at the supermarket, ate in the restaurants, peddled the bike path and even took in a movie with well-behaved high-schoolers. We also took an excursion to the Little Rocky Mountains and visited a pristine church high on a hill. I retired last year from 38 years of “working on the railroad “ and thought you might like an article explaining where all these trains honkin’ in the night with their boxes on top of boxes are going and what they are carrying. If this... Full story

  • Helen is no fan of the NRA

    Apr 13, 2016

    We got trouble right here in Phillips County! The NRA – National Rifle Association – is trying to start a chapter in our peaceful county! Why in the world do they want so many guns and rifles? Who do they want to shoot? Maybe they want to start their own militia? Anyway, it’s just a matter of time until cattle, or worse yet, people are accidently shot. How many people have have to die before we get gun control? We do not need the NRA! Why don’t they join the army if they want to shoot? Helen Austin, Whitewater...

  • Find your spark and go for it

    Brandon Nicholson, Columnist|Apr 13, 2016

    Once I was 10-years-old. Do you remember what it felt like before the first day of school in elementary school? The tense feeling in your stomach as you lay in bed wondering what your friends spent their summer doing. Whether your class had picked up some new kids… whether you’d be picked to play kickball on the playground. I’ll never have that feeling again, a lot of you will never have that feeling again. Do not let this discourage you. That feeling will never be forgotten for a reason. We had something exciting to look forward to… something...

  • That butt wasn't big enough

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|Apr 13, 2016

    My first indirect smoking experience went so well with baby back ribs that the only thing I could think of was lighting that grill again. So this past weekend I did. This time around I decided to try a long smoke… with a 4 pound Boston Butt (Pork Shoulder Roast). I have to admit I was not excited about the possibility of an eight hour cook. I get impatient when the coffee maker takes too long but I knew that if I was going to do this, I was going to be “all in.” I used the most basic rub you cou...

  • Conservation District constructs wildlife escape ramps

    Jenifer Anderson, Phillips Conservation District Administrator|Apr 13, 2016

Wildlife escape ramps are placed in livestock watering tanks as a means for trapped wildlife to escape possible drowning.
