    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Oct 5, 2022

    Emery Myrick is a self-proclaimed "last man standing" as he was the lone resident at the Hi-Line Retirement Center. As the HLRC was set to close on Sept. 30th, Emery was slow to find a new residence which to call "home" and was still at the center on Monday; his departure was set at that time to move to Awe Kualawaache Care Center on the Crow Agency on Tuesday. Emery moved to HLRC following an accident in his hometown, Poplar, that left him with injuries requiring care from a facility. I sat...

  • Here Comes Johnnnny!!!

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Oct 5, 2022

    A passion, a devotion, a talent, a life, a love...these are ways Schizoid Johnny's life with music can be described. His life with music began at age 15, and yet today his zeal and ardor continue strong. Born in California, Johnny said he fell in love with Montana; the people, hunting, beauty, and solitude all added to reasons why he has chosen Zortman, Montana, as his home. (*he denies being in the witness protection program, which I did ask of him, due to his extensive biography and...

  • Research Candidates and Issues

    Oct 5, 2022

    Dear Editor, Here we are in another election year. Let’s look at what’s happening in our nation. As a nation, we’ve destroyed future generations by aborting millions of the innocent. Roe vs Wade overturned pitching the decision back to the states is a good start. Now we’re destroying young people with gender confusion to the point they are willing to allow mutilation of their young bodies. Actually, God made it simple. He created humans in just two genders, male and female. We’re causing division with critical race theory. God also made that...

  • Hurricane Ian hit a familiar place

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Oct 5, 2022

    Hurricane Ian came ashore last week at a familiar spot: Cayo Costa, a barrier island on the Gulf coast of Florida. Barb and I used to trailer a boat from Montana to Florida every spring. We’d visit my parents who were then living in St. Petersburg, and camp at various places across the state. Mom suggested we try Cayo Costa, a state park accessible only by boat. She’d read about it in the newspaper, and like she often did, clipped and saved the story for me. We almost didn’t find it. Launc...

  • I'm Just Glad to Be Back in the Weight Room

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Oct 5, 2022

    The good news is that I have been working out again. The bad news is that I feel older than I was when I last consistently lifted. I remember the peak of my “strength” being when I could throw four plates (405 pounds) on my back and squat out several reps before I had to rack them. This was roughly eight years ago. I remember wanting to be in the 1,000 pound club in high school. This meant the ability to one rep max 1,000 pounds between bench press, squats and deadlifts. I was probably good for...

    Welcome October and thank you for the nice bit of rain! The cottonwood tree in my yard finally decided it really was fall and the leaves started turning a beautiful lemon yellow and falling on the lawn!

    Eldora Henry, PCN Correspondent|Oct 5, 2022

    The weather has certainly changed and is staying quite chilly. We are not seeing the sun as much as before and it is not nearly as warm as it has been when it is out. Almost wish for the hot again. All my kids that were here have gone home to return later this month to celebrate my 90th birthday. Gad--it's tough to get old. Teresa's son Aaron is taking Teri to Spokane again on Tuesday for a check and treatment, if necessary. That old road seems to be getting well-traveled. It was good to see...

    Kari Hould, PCN Correspondent|Oct 5, 2022

    Staff of the Hi-Line Retirement Center gathered Saturday evening for a delectable meal and their last time together as HLRC employees. The event also served as their Halloween and Christmas party; some dressed in goblin costumes, ugly sweaters, Christmas attire, and some in their favorite character. Some just came as themselves...characters. Warren Taylor bade farewell to the residents who have long enjoyed his monthly visits to provide music with Jay Southwick, Bill Abrahamson and others.

  • Court: Election laws burden right to vote, violate Montana Constitution

    Niki Zupanic, Upper Seven Law|Oct 5, 2022

    The Thirteenth Judicial District Court ruled today that three voter suppression laws passed during the 2021 Montana Legislative Session violate the Montana Constitution and unreasonably restrict Montanans in exercising their right to vote. Today’s order permanently enjoins the Secretary of State from enforcing House Bill 176, which eliminated election day registration, Senate Bill 169, which complicated voter identification requirements and limited the use of student ID, and House Bill 530, which barred paid ballot collection. In July, the C...

  • Bird hunters should be aware of highly pathogenic avian influenza in wild birds

    Oct 5, 2022

    Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus was detected in wild birds and domestic poultry in Montana earlier this year. While HPAI cases in wild birds did appear to decline over the summer, there are detections of new cases in parts of the U.S., including Montana this fall. HPAI viruses are extremely infectious and fatal to poultry and some species of wild birds. Some scientists have been concerned that the U.S. would see a resurgence of the virus during the fall migration. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is monitoring the situation by...

  • Penguins at Crazy Mountain Run

    Carly Hammond, For the PCN|Oct 5, 2022

    We drove to Big Timber on the morning of Saturday, October 1, at 5 a.m.! It literally rained the entire drive there, and the entire drive home. I can’t complain because everyone needs it. I’m glad I checked the weather forecast and warned the girls to bring extra clothes because within 10 minutes of being at the course, we were all soaked from head to toe. The whole golf course was flooded. The girls ran through puddles and in the rain the entire race. They were actually pretty excited about it. There weren't as many runners there as I ant...
