    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jul 19, 2023

    Farmer-rancher Peggy Bergsagel is one of those who have witnessed and understand what a difference a year can make. "We are so blessed," she said. "Blessed and grateful! This year we have had an abundance of rain. " On the southern prairies of the county, this year is one she will long remember. "From May 15th to June 15th, we had five inches of rain." And timely rain it was. It came in the nick of time to provide adequate moisture for both crop land and grazing pastures and meadows. The...

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Jul 19, 2023

    Despite the heat, the threat of impending storm and busy schedules, the communities in Phillips County turned out Thursday the 13th of July and met the goal for blood quota. This draw was held at the Little White Church to provide a comfortable climate for the donors. Teresa Hotchkiss, local Red Cross Coordinator, said, “We had 44 donors, which is great for a summer drive, the quota was 35. Four donors contributed under Power Red, in which two pints are drawn.” This allows the donor to only have to donate every other time. “I am thankful for V...

  • Those Stories Do Have Endings!

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Jul 19, 2023

    I recently read a story about two young men who paddled their canoe from Butte to the Pacific Ocean, completing the 1,300-mile journey in 52 days. I read the initial story when they began the trip on Silver Bow Creek. I never expected to read a story about the conclusion. During my time working for both the Livingston Enterprise and the Bozeman Chronicle I wrote and edited a number of stories about such trips. Plenty of would-be adventurers have grand visions of starting a float trip near the...

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Jul 19, 2023

    When we landed in Sweden during our family vacation, I felt like a champion! I couldn’t really fall asleep on the plane because of a screaming kid somewhere near us. I can only imagine traveling with a toddler and I definitely have sympathy, but it was hard to catch Zs despite our flight being an overnight event. Susan and the boys handled the flight over the Atlantic Ocean very well, thanks in part to the huge catalog of movies available to us. They had over 150 movie options and 150 tv s...

Nathan came up and helped trim and take care of the yard. Not too much activity at the fairgrounds yet but...
