    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|May 17, 2023

    EMT Instructor Riley Abrahamson and EMT Board Chairman Vince Mace both relaxed and were a wee bit at ease when the recent session of EMT training came to a close. The graduating five had started in a class of nine. Riley and Vince are pleased to have the five; they will be a welcome addition to the ambulance service. Malta ambulance service will gain the assistance of three, if all sign up after their tests; two live out of town. In an interview last week, Abrahamson stated that four of the...

  • Business Profile: KMMR - A Caring Community

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|May 17, 2023

    “The best sound around, KMMR,” and the only sounds locally on the air waves, KMMR is more than your average radio station. The station is the voice of Phillips County, stretching across the northeastern prairies and bouncing off gopher holes, fence posts, and an occasional large lava rock…wherever the wind and currents takes the waves. Many know the owner, Greg Kielb, and his lovely (and some say patient and resilient) wife, Claude, for their work at making the most out of a day from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and occasionally longer. Many more...

  • A Bandwagon That I Can Get Behind

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|May 17, 2023

    I’ve always been reluctant to jump on bandwagons. The latest this or that rarely appealed to me. Then I heard about No Mow May, a movement that encourages folks to let their lawns grow unfettered during the month of May in an effort to benefit bees and other pollinators. Without hesitation I clambered aboard that wagon and joined the band. In all honesty, however, it has little to do with my concern for bees, and a lot to do with my disdain for lawn mowing. I’d embrace any movement that...

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|May 17, 2023

    We’ve had a few days of gentle rains this week so the prairie is really greening up! Cindy and I took a drive to a secret spot that grows certain wildflowers and we were not disappointed! The hillsides had plenty of crocus and yellow bells. I’ve seen them as early as April 9, but this year the land was still under snow cover. I then drove a little further and saw some American avocets along with some ducks in a slough! It’s nice to see the water and shorebirds! Our community has been...

  • Phillips County Museum News for Wednesday, May 17, 2023

    Lori Taylor, P. C. Museum Curator|May 17, 2023

    What household appliance put women at considerable risk? They could both flatten and explode? In the early 1940’s, gas-powered irons replaced the ‘sad irons’. With the new technology a pump was used to build up pressure in the fuel tank and a match was lit underneath the iron, making a flame inside the iron. These irons carried a real risk of causing a fire or even exploding. In addition, some versions were made with a wooden handle that had the potential to burn the user’s hand or burn up entirely. By the 1970’s gas irons were...
