    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Sep 14, 2022

    Twenty-one years after the tragedy that caught the world by surprise with an attack on US soil by terrorists, the memories are still vividly etched in our minds. Activities were held during the week to commemorate and help America heal. The American Legion, the VFW, Sons of the Legion, and Auxiliaries held a walk, had a prayer service led by Chaplain Rick Mikkelson, and luminaries at Veterans Park (luminaries were lit to show hope in our darkest hour). A two-story version of the Twin Towers was...

    That big loof of a pet, the family treasure, the ONE that for sure will welcome you when you get home…is drawing a lot of attention, especially from the public.

  • What will Become of the HLRC Building?

    Sep 14, 2022

    Dear Editor, It is a shame that our fair city of Malta can’t take care of our elderly. I am sure the residents are not resting in the “rest home”. What is going to become of this fancy structure? I think of the first “care center” in Malta. It was an older house moved into town in the 1950’s. My mother, Palma Solberg, and her neighbor, Lila Vickhammer, were the caretakers. The majority of the residents were men. The women cooked and cared for the residents. They would lift the guys to change their bedding and cleaned them up. I would go over an...

  • Dot Is Much Different From Her Predecessors

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Sep 14, 2022

    It took me years to make the change. I always felt I could control my dogs with just voice commands or a whistle. And while I still maintain that approach worked over many years, some of my hunting partners might disagree. Then I got Dot and quickly realized it was time to switch tactics. Supposedly a springer spaniel -- or so say her AKC papers -- she’s a bit different than any of my previous springers. I’m beginning to suspect she’s part greyhound with a dash of Border collie thrown in just...

  • Larry Thomas Sasaki

    Sep 14, 2022

    Larry Thomas Sasaki, age 71 passed away due to complications from heart surgery on September 1, 2022, in Great Falls, MT. He was an easy-going man with the patience and precision to haul the world's largest tractors across the country. Fueled by his parent's indefatigable work ethic, he would quietly do what was needed to be done without being told or even asked. Though he wasn't fluent in the native language of his family's heritage and unfortunately was never able to fulfill his goal of visiti... Full story

  • Phillips County Museum News for Wednesday, September 14, 2022

    Krista Fahlgren, P. C. Museum Staff|Sep 14, 2022

    To say that I am nostalgic is one of the world’s great understatements. I love everything that is old, tells a story or harkens back to eras long ago. I’m fascinated by old pictures, letters, and newspapers. Heck, I even have postcards that were sent to people I’ve never heard of. Have you ever run across a box of old photos or memorabilia that you know are important to the history of Phillips County, tell a part of your family’s history, or show how different things used to look?

  • Nelson Reminded Me of A Great Couple

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Sep 14, 2022

    I finally got a chance to fish at Nelson Reservoir last Friday, and as we were pulling up, I couldn’t help but remember my great-uncle Reverend Arthur Blackshire and his wife Rosie Lee Blackshire. He passed away in 2009. She passed away in 2019. I have no idea why I am telling you all this but… They were very dear to me, despite us being over 60 years apart in age. They were two of the most influential people to me in my younger years. There was never a doubt in my mind that they truly loved eac...
