  • The Debacle of SB442: Good Bill and Bad Politics

    Senator Russ Tempel and Rep. Paul Tuss|May 8, 2024

    The two of us are from different political parties, don’t always agree on legislation and actually ran a spirited campaign against one another several years ago. Having said that, we are not enemies. In fact, it’s just the opposite. We are friends that actually get along and work together as much as possible for the betterment of the Hi-Line and those who live and work here. One legislative proposal we both were pleased to enthusiastically support, along with 86% of our House and Senate colleagues, was Senate Bill 442, sponsored by our fel...

  • How Times Have Changed

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|May 8, 2024

    Following an aborted hitch-hiking trip to Alaska that ended with a night in jail in Eureka, I found myself in Livingston waiting for a ride to Cooke City where I had work. It was hours before dawn and there was no traffic. I curled up next to my backpack and closed my eyes. The sound of tires crunching gravel woke me with a start. A Livingston police cruiser had stopped just feet away, and a cop, holding the passenger door open, said get in. He drove me a few miles south of town, told me to get...

  • Spring is My New Favorite Time of Year... In Montana

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|May 8, 2024

    I may not be alone in saying that this is my favorite time of year in the state of Montana; which is odd for me being that I have always been a fan of the fall season nearly everywhere I have lived. Fall means that my birthday is near. Fall for a couple of decades meant relief from the heat and humidity. Fall means that Christmas is around the corner. I have had a change of heart since moving here in 2012. Most of the winters here have been brutal. And though the lack of humidity here is...

  • Phillips County Museum News for Wednesday, May 8, 2024

    Rose Teske, P. C. Museum Curator|May 8, 2024

    Last year I wrote about how much poultry was shipped out of Phillips County. There was an active movement in the early 1920s to develop the poultry industry in the county. In mid-May, 1923, three community poultry housing demonstrations were held. They were put on by the county agent and Miss Harriette Cushman, poultry specialist from Montana State College. The old poultry houses were torn down and remodeled on the H. J. Rocek farm at Black Coulee and the Mac Schoop farm at South Wagner. A new house was built on the J. N. Mangis farm. The...
