  • Punt, Pass, Kick

    Mark Hebert, Publisher|Sep 27, 2017

    The fact that the National Football League (NFL) recently announced they had terminated ties to the Punt, Pass, and Kick (PPK) competition didn't slow the Malta Athletic Club or 84 children from Phillips County from participating in the event in Malta last Tuesday night. "It is a great turnout and a beautiful evening," Dennis Oxarart said. "There is a lot of great competition and the parents are out cheering. The NFL pulled out of it, but we didn't want to give it up because we always have such...

  • Its always spring at Shirley's

    Mark Hebert, Publisher|Sep 27, 2017

    The temperatures are tumbling and the leaves are falling from the trees, but over at Shirley Jones’ house, it’s like the first day of spring, every day, at least in her living room. The yard surrounding her Malta home is festooned with birdhouses, welcome signs and shady areas to kick up one’s feet and enjoy a sunny, warm day. Since those days are starting to become less abundant as Fall creeps across the county, Jones decided that her living room would be spring from now on. “There was already...

  • Who's to blame?

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoor Columnist|Sep 27, 2017

    When natural disaster strikes, it’s nice to have someone to blame. Pity those poor folks in Florida and Texas who suffered through hurricanes and floods in recent weeks. Grasping at straws to assign blame, some of them are saying it’s the homosexuals’ fault. That seems to be a bit of a reach. Pointing fingers at the guilty party in Montana is far easier. Blame the feds for all the fire and smoke. It’s their mismanagement of our forests, after all, that caused this mess. Even the argumen...

  • Donnie Lynn's perspective

    Sep 27, 2017

    Thanks to the PCN for welcoming different opinions and perspectives on matters that affect all of us. This will be my first of several and I will offer my opinion based on presented facts.

  • A peaceful discussion

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|Sep 27, 2017

    I think we could all learn something from kids. I don’t claim to represent all of African Americans but a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to share what I thought about current events at a local high school. The opportunity came thanks in part to a responsive column I wrote about confederate monuments about a month or so ago. The kids and teacher of that class were interested in why I wrote what I wrote and also presented me with several other questions. When I first received an email statin...
