  • New Election Cycle, Same Tired Refrain

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Nov 2, 2022

    Apparently desperate times call for desperate measures. Montana Supreme Court candidate James Brown (not the King of Soul) has recently started warning us that President Biden is coming for our jobs and our guns. It’s a tired refrain. Someone has been coming for my guns as long as I can remember, and I still have them. I’m tired of waiting. I don’t think anyone is actually coming. But for all the redneck gun owners out there who have little grasp of history or who haven’t been paying attenti...

  • Phillips County Museum News for Wednesday, November 2, 2022

    Krista Fahlgren, P. C. Museum Staff|Nov 2, 2022

    Did you know the man with the monkey? Growing up, my family always spoke about “the trained monkey behind the hotel,” with enough various stories that led my child mind to believe it might be true.

Ed Young arrived in Phillips County from Wales, North Dakota, in 1915 and homesteaded north of Wagner, where he farmed until 1933. He went to work for the AAA and Milk River Resettlement Administration until that project was completed, at which point he ope...
