  • Almost Lost My Dog

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Oct 18, 2023

    Almost lost my dog. Happened just the other day. As I was crawling under a fence she took the opportunity to run away. I don’t know why. She didn‘t say. Worried me something awful, enough to make me pray. Was she hurt? Was she dead? Was it something I said? I hit the button on her electronic leash, hoping she would hear the beep, but if she did there was no response, all was quiet, still no Dot. I headed uphill for a better look where the trees played out and the grass was short. I called her...

  • It Is Getting Harder To Say Goodbye

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Oct 18, 2023

    It gets harder to say goodbye to my mom when she leaves. It gets harder to say goodbye to any of my family members when I get to see them. A year away from my mother, father, and brothers feels like an eternity. I wasn’t always this way. I left the nest before anyone else in my family did. I lived in St. Louis for three years, Florida for three years, California for six months and then eventually Montana. I was never homesick, at least not until a few years ago. My first couple of years here, w...

    1 yrs Oct. 16, 2013 Addy Anderson, winner of the third grade “What I learned at Ag Ed Day” contest said, “Cows are good for the environment because when cattle graze they reduce the length of grass.

    We traveled to the Harlem Invite on Friday, October 13. This season has been a little eerie in the fact that all of our weather has been almost identical to last season's weather. Which, you don't see very often in Montana. It was nice and chilly, a light breeze, and once the sun came out around 10 am it turned out to be a beautiful day to run. We had great competition at this meet with Shelby, Sun Burst, Glasgow, and Chinook all coming to compete. Harlem has a very flat course so it is a great...
