    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jun 21, 2023

    It isn't all cotton candy, rides on the midway and burgers at the 4-H stand...there is the Friday night entertainment that will attract people to the Phillips County Fair. Once a year, the sleepy, quiet little town awakes and hosts the biggest event of the year for the town of less than 200 residents. This year is no exception.

  • Enyeart Celebrates 30 Years as Pharmacist at Valley Drug

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jun 21, 2023

    From the peaceful and quiet shores of Lake Audubon, ND, to the vast prairies of Phillips County, Laurel Enyeart made the decision to come west and now calls Malta "home". Thirty years of adventures and challenges are all part of what builds the memories for Laurel. Enyeart has been the face of the pharmacist behind the counter (with her neck kinked upward) for thirty years on June 20. That is quite a milestone, considering the work ethics of youth today and their blatant desire to avoid work....

  • We Were Best Buds On the Water

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Jun 21, 2023

    On Father’s Day, I went fishing and thought about Dad. I don’t think about him every day. I’m not one to celebrate heavenly birthdays or lament his passing at the age of 90 nearly two decades ago. But I always think about him when I fish. He and I fished together often. We didn’t agree on a lot — religion and politics come to mind. Get us on the water, however, our differences vanished and we were best buds. Dad taught me to fly fish. It wasn’t something many folks did in southern Indiana, an...

  • One Way That I Take the Edge Off

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Jun 21, 2023

    We are losing too many people to sadness. Like many in our world, I struggle with sadness. I don’t really do or take anything to take the edge off when I am feeling sad or depressed. I like to try to stay grounded in reality and sometimes reality is depressing to me. I try not to judge anyone for what they do to escape their own sadness. The one thing that I do to help deal with the issues going on in my head may seem crazy to most. I try to torture myself through working out early in the m...

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|Jun 21, 2023

    I noticed that some of the alfalfa fields and grassy prairie have been swathed. The swaths look pretty big. It’ll be so nice to get a bunch of bales for the winter! The wildflowers are prolific and add lots of colors to the prairie! I’ve heard a couple of orioles this past week. It’ll be the summer solstice this week so enjoy the long daylight!
