  • Handouts and Charity Were Not For Me

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Aug 30, 2023

    Shortly after arriving in Montana as a homeless 18-year-old I remedied that situation by getting a job that provided room and board. After all, I had a skill. I could cook. I spent much of that first summer in the backcountry working for an outfitter who took clients on pack trips into the Beartooth Mountains and Yellowstone Park. The wages were minimal, but enough that I could pay my own way. That’s how I had been raised. Handouts and charity were for the less fortunate, not for me. But that w...

    Eldora Henry, PCN Correspondent|Aug 30, 2023

    We have been having hot days again, but some mornings are downright cool. School has started again so things seem busier, so watch for the young ones while driving in town.

    Sympathy for the victims of the fires. Be careful with Montana Fires. Get well to all who are sick, including Steve Young. Whitewater School is in session; it livens up the town.

There were no buses, everyone came by themselves. When the lunch program began, the fantastic cook was Gladys Berg. She cooked at W...

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|Aug 30, 2023

    On August 30 and 31, we can enjoy a super blue moon! It’s a super moon because it will be closer to the earth, so it’ll appear larger, but not much to the naked eye. It’s called a blue moon because it’s the second full moon in a month. With all the smoke and dust in the atmosphere, the moon will have a reddish-orange look to it. My sister Debbie and my daughter-in-law Brandie drove up to Loring on Friday. We all went to Fort Peck Theater to see the play “Misery”. Brandie hadn’t been to that...

    The Penguins kicked off their season heading to Wolf Point on Friday. We've had ten solid practices so I was pretty confident the girls would have a successful first meet. I think this is the hardest I've run kids in the first couple of weeks, but I've got two returning veterans that I knew could handle the miles and they hung in there. Ava Hanley was my only runner on Saturday morning as Shelbi LaBrie was not feeling well. It was an absolutely beautiful day for a run, about 65 degrees and no...
