  • 21st Annual First State Bank Car Show Award Winners

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jun 7, 2023

    They came in bright, shiny, polished and in their prime…and some were even older that those viewing them. As the 21st Annual First State Bank Car Show livened up, the spectators flocked to admire the years and experience that has gone into restoration of the classics and gems. Not all the vehicles were antique; there were also classics, dragsters, trucks and even a 2023 Corvette…several of which was posted a note: “Unless you are naked, don’t sit on this car!” Yes, they are the pride and joy,...

  • Henry Catches State Record Smallmouth

    Montana FWP, For the PCN|Jun 7, 2023

    Debbie Henry was fishing from shore with her family at Nelson Reservoir over the Memorial Day weekend when she noticed one of the fishing rods begin to severely bend in its holder. After over 10 minutes of fighting the fish, with it nearly spooling her line and dealing with a broken net, she was able to land the new state record Smallmouth Buffalo! The behemoth tipped the scales at a whopping 40.0 pounds! The old record was 38 pounds, also caught at Nelson Reservoir, in 2007. Congratulations to...

  • New Assault on Federal Grazing

    Jun 7, 2023

    Dear Editor, With all the checks and balances ingrained in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, it is incomprehensible how one election is totally destroying the foundation of our very successful republic. Wayne Hage, in his book 'Storm over Rangelands', extensively documented how the eastern industrialists coveted the natural resources of the western states and since the 1880's had been using the federal government to keep these resources out of the hands of the western settlers (i.e. forest reserves, retained mineral rights, etc.)....

  • If Only Money Bought a Few More Bites

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Jun 7, 2023

    They say money doesn’t buy happiness. Apparently it doesn’t buy fish either. I own a fishing boat with all the bells and whistles. It has three motors, sonar, and GPS. There are a dozen rods in the on-board locker, drawers filled with every lure on the market, and a live-well big enough to hold me. There’s even a retractable yard stick to measure all those fish I don’t catch. Before I could afford such a craft, however, I fished out of more modest boats and caught more fish. My most successful t...

  • Memories for Wednesday, June 7, 2023

    Compiled by Kari Hould|Jun 7, 2023

    1 yrs ago June 5, 2013 Cars will be the word this weekend, as the 11th Annual First State Bank Car Show and the Phillips County Motor Sports converge on the town. Those sitting at the Bank show area will get far less dust than those at the racetracks. Flooding between the DY Junction and Bohemian Corner on Hwy 191 has resulted in the road being closed.

  • Where the Rubber Hits the Road

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jun 7, 2023

    From parked perfectly, all a glisten and a glow...the limelight moved from the Car Show on Front Street on Saturday, June 3, across the canal to the outskirts of town to the dragstrip. Surrounded by sound barriers of various trees at the east entry, the drag opened the gates for the first of a season of dragster competition of the year. AND OPEN THEY DID! Montana style. The colorful array of entries made for eye-catching views as the cars raced usually in pairs, to speeds over 100 mph getting...

During the signing event, in which nearly every Malta senior was present, Bishop was asked why Dickinson State University? "I was looking at their golf scores and realized that I could fit in...

  • VFW News: Who is Flying Your Plane?

    Sharon Kindle, Patriotic Chair, VFW Post 4067|Jun 7, 2023

    Do you ever wonder about the pilot in the Caption’s seat while you settle in for your flight, wherever it may take you? One pilot ‘entered through the back door’ so to speak as he started in Navy flight school graduating college and then flew F/A-18 fighter jets. He saw four different theaters and eventually became a Navy test pilot. Flying the dynamic nature and complexity of military ops prepared the pilot to be one of the best commercial pilots. He knew how a ‘holding’ pattern, thunderstorms or turbulence can affect passengers having co...

  • Whitewater News & Opinion for Wednesday, June 7, 2023

    Helen Austin, PCN Correspondent|Jun 7, 2023

    Sympathy for the immigrants and homeless people who have no place to go. Sympathy to the family of Terry McMullen. He was raised in Whitewater. Ray McMullen was his brother. Bonnie McMullen was his sister-in-law. On Memorial Day, some went to the Veterans Parade and BBQ lunch in Malta. Others went to the lake (Nelson Reservoir). The water is high enough to go boating, but probably cold for swimming. Sleeping Buffalo pools were full too. Memorial Day we remember all those who died, especially in...

  • Loring News for Wednesday, June 7, 2023

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|Jun 7, 2023

    This week has been wonderful with all the special birds I’ve heard and seen! A red-headed Flicker, which is similar to a woodpecker, flew into my trees one day. An oriole was singing away in my Cottonwood tree early one morning along with house wrens, kingbirds, robins, and meadowlarks! Plus, one day in the museum I got to visit with several birders from around the country! My friend Fran left on Friday on her way to visit Gene Compton and then on to Seattle to get on the ferry for the trip t...

  • Dodson News for Wednesday, June 7, 2023

    Eldora Henry, PCN Correspondent|Jun 7, 2023

    No writing made it into the paper last week, so we'll start again. The main item last week was the lady attacked by the Pit Bull. Haven’t heard anything but hope she is doing well. Memorial Day has passed one more time. The cemeteries looked good although it looked like there were fewer flowers around as usual. This could have been caused by all the rain showers----we put ours down in the rain! My daughter said she guessed she wouldn't melt. Our condolences to all who have lost loved ones l...
