  • Day at the ranch

    Mark Hebert, Editor|Sep 16, 2015

    Nearly 200 Malta Elementary students hopped on school busses and headed east of town for a field trip to the Hinman Angus Ranch last Wednesday to participate in Ag Education Day where they travelled to six different stations to learn about farming and ranching. The program at Hinman Angus Ranch started in 2009 when Dave and Yvonne Hinman decided they wanted to do something nice for children that would double as a learning opportunity. "I think the children are getting something out of it each...

  • Speed bumps a go after council meeting

    Mark Hebert, Editor|Sep 16, 2015

    Mosquito spraying coming to an end, branches around town to be cut down and a disagreement about races held in the city were a few of the items discussed at last week’s Malta City Council Meeting. Malta Mayor Shyla Jones said that the mosquito spray truck will soon start spraying every other day – barring a big rain – and as the buggers start to disappear the truck will make the rounds once every three days. Mayor Jones added that once the weather gets below freezing the spraying will most likely stop all together. City Councilwoman Bonnie Wied...

  • Bradys honored for years of service

    Rosemary S. Veseth, PCN Correspondent|Sep 16, 2015

    The Malta community has been blessed with many folks who volunteer countless hours helping where needed. These are the people who quietly take the time to coach Little League, sack groceries at the food bank, organize a Girl Scout troop, play bingo at our rest home, or trim the rose bushes at the Robinson House. Jim and Mary Brady, who will soon move to Oak Harbor, Washington, certainly be-long to this fine group of people. Jim and Mary came to Malta about twenty-five years ago. Mary began at... Full story

  • Getting my campfire fix

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoor Columnist|Sep 16, 2015

    I’ve been going into some kind of hunting camp every fall since I was a kid. Dad and cousin Carlton used to hunt rabbits and quail at a relative’s farm in Illinois for a few days each November. I started tagging along before I was old enough to carry a gun. We’d stay in a tiny, unheated trailer behind the barn, cooking all of our meals there except Sunday dinner, which we always ate at the farmhouse. It was an old place and it sat in a fertile creek bottom bordered by hardwoods. The count...

  • The Sierra Club Has Become a Front Group for its Donors' Financial Interests

    Drew Johnson|Sep 16, 2015

    One of America's most respected environmental nonprofits has traded in one kind of green for another.

Nathaniel Simons, a hedge fund baron worth an estimated $12 billion, has donated more...

  • Sometimes the guy with the camera gets picked on

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|Sep 16, 2015

    Being from a big town, where students are required to do a lot less in terms of extra-curricular activi-ties, I have noticed that small schools around here take things like homecoming week a little serious. I have to say that I am definitely impressed with the class participation from the high schools to the elementary schools. I was randomly selected to help lead the GO! FIGHT! WIN! – GO BIG BLUE! cheer at the 2015 Home-coming Assembly. I was confused by Principal King’s selection at first bec...
