    Mark Hebert, Editor|May 14, 2014

    There was a time at the Phillips County Museum when a visitor was unable to manage the stairs leading to top floor exhibits, they would have missed out on an expansive section of history dedicated to Phillips County and northeast Montana. Those days are gone. Malta High School seniors Ronnie Erickson and Kyle Mitchell, under the tutelage of history teacher Delmer Henry, spent the better part of three months filming the rooms on the second floor of the Museum before taking the raw footage back...

  • Phillips County Sheriff's Office seeks new mill levy with lower cost to taxpayers

    Mark Hebert, Editor|May 14, 2014

    The Phillips County Sheriff’s Office announced this week that they are seeking approval on a mill levy which would lower the rate that landowners pay per year verses prior levies and generate more funds for the office. If not passed could severely handcuff their efforts to be proactive. The sheriff’s office is asking for an additional $51,739.90 to be added to the $98,300 that has been approved since 2002. Additional tax above the statutory limit will actually decrease from 2002 and 2006 voted levies. “Should the levy not pass,” said Moran....

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|May 14, 2014

    Mrs. Simanton's third grade class took some time last Friday to go outside and fly kites at Murray Field. But this wasn't just a random relaxing afternoon away from the classroom.

  • Will "no Hunting" signs come down?

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|May 14, 2014

    The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks announced last month that it is scaling back plans to establish a free-roaming bison herd in the state. That should come as good news to hunters after ranchers across Montana pulled more than 300,000 acres out of the Block Management program last fall in protest of FWP policies. Now maybe those “No Hunting due to FWP” signs in northeastern Montana will come down. They certainly should. The ranchers got what they wanted. How it came about, how...

  • In favor of PCSO Mill Levy

    Mark Hebert, Editor|May 14, 2014

    Now I know that most of you don’t know me well enough to really care, one way or another, about where I fall on important issues such as mill levies and the like. Though I am now a taxpayer – and soon to be homeowner/buyer – in Phillips County, I am so new to the area that an editorial on why I support the levy being proposed by the Phillips County Sheriff’s Office may, at first, leave you thinking “who cares?” Well, I care. Since I am looking forward to becoming a permanent fixture in Phillips County – sorry to disappoint anyone – this is a ma...

  • Kicked out of class

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|May 14, 2014

    Don’t tie your shoe in class Last weekend, I did something few people could ever understand… I watched most of the NFL draft on my smartphone and or on a computer. It’s only weird because the draft is the most boring thing about football. I have no power over what picks my beloved Chicago Bears choose, I’m not a paid analyst and I’m sure if I really tried I could find ten things more productive to do with my time. Why do I like watching then? There’s no awesome answer to that.. Maybe it’s...
