    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Sep 13, 2023

    Forty new flags bearing the names and faces of Veterans were recently placed around Malta. The project is in its’ second wave of flags that honor “Hometown Heroes.” Eric and Delsi Witmer spearheaded the project last year and had 38 requests placed. The number of 40 for this year shows both an interest and appreciation of the chance to remember and honor loved ones. This round of Veterans that are erected are Veterans from WWI and forward in time. The banners remember those that some may have...

  • American Legion "Juniors" Making A Difference

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Sep 13, 2023

    One step at a time, one project at a time, one message at a time. The American Legion Auxiliary "Juniors" are actively participating in and making both a stand and a statement on matters that not only affect Veterans, it affects others. Though small in number (less than 10 as of now) the young ladies are aiding in getting messages to people. This weekend the project was directed toward suicide prevention awareness. Over 60 rocks bearing a variety of encouraging messages were created and will be...

  • Great Plains Dinosaur Museum Prospecting Program

    Dixie Stordahl, Great Plains Dinosaur Museum|Sep 13, 2023

    The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum is offering a prospecting program for the month of September. If you’d like to be on the cutting edge of fossil hunting and possibly find a fossil in the field this is your time to shine! Most of the fossils on display were found by accident or by a person hiking along the coulees where fossil-rich strata are often found. September is a perfect month to prospect because it is a little cooler than the rest of the summer season. So how does this work? To begin w...

    Helen Austin, PCN Correspondent|Sep 13, 2023

    Our deepest sympathy to the family of Courtney Hellie who recently passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband and six boys. Sympathy to my cousin Ray and Lois Austin on the passing of their son Christian Austin. He was involved in an accident in Seattle, Wash. Very sad. Back in Whitewater, the air is smoky coming from the fires in Canada. There are fires in western Montana also. Now that school has started, so have volleyball and cross country. Good luck to the athletes in...

  • Loring News for Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2023

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|Sep 13, 2023

    Every morning when I look out to the east, I see more and more yellow and gold on my lawn and less on my trees! I’m hoping that when all the leaves fall, I will be ready for winter! Don’t get me wrong, I think the four distinct seasons are important up in this area! Carol Lumsden and I took in the Historic talks at the Phillips County Museum on Sunday. We both felt that the stories were portrayed well! Sympathy to the family of Courtney Hellie who passed away this week. We are all very sor...

  • The First Day of Hunting Season

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Sep 13, 2023

    I awoke Sept. 1 way too early. It was the first day of hunting season and I didn’t want to be late. After a quick breakfast I loaded the dogs into the truck, double-checked my gear, and grabbed a mug of coffee. On the drive down I worried that someone would be in my spot, but when I got there of course no one was. Opening day of upland bird season never draws a crowd despite my fears. It was dark yet, and I sat in the truck listening to Ace whine in his box. When it was light enough I f...

  • Penguins Continue Strong Running in Havre

    Carly Hammond, PCN Correspondent|Sep 13, 2023

    The Penguins set out for Havre on Saturday for the Havre Invitational held at Prairie Farms Golf Course. This course is a mostly flat run, alternating between grass and golf cart paths on a two-loop route. It was about 65 degrees when the girls were set to run and no wind. We could not have asked for a nicer day! I'm hoping all of our meets end up being this nice, fingers crossed. Both girls were looking to cut some time with splits faster than the last week. Shelbi wanted to go for 6.35 splits...
