  • Farmers & Ranchers: 75 and Strong as Ever

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Nov 9, 2022

    It might seem like the "olden days" to some of you, others it might be a trip down memory lane and as fresh as the smell of homemade buns coming out of the oven. To employees at Farmers and Ranchers Lumber Company, it is 75 years of providing service and goods to the community. Seventy-five years ago Danny Shores and Gordon Peters acquired the shares and changed the name of Bowdoin Builders to the current Farmers and Ranchers Lumber Company. When co-owner Cohen Ereaux, was made aware it was the...

  • Paws & A Cause

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Nov 9, 2022

    "I'm not afraid to die; I am only afraid of saying goodbye to you forever." Perhaps those weren't the exact words she heard, but they might have been. Less than two years ago, Twilla Johannesen said a final goodbye as the grip of cancer took her mom. Years of pain, medicine, treatments, and hope are all washed away as the final tear is wiped from the eye of your loved ones. It matters little whether the battle and agony has been for three months or ten years. Cancer wins. It is a road many of...

  • May I Help? I am an EMT

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Nov 9, 2022

    Those words just might be words you may not hear in the near future should you be in an accident. In the very near future. Unfortunately, the need for EMTs is greater than those who have an interest in assuming that role. Thursday, Nov. 3, the local ambulance service held a meeting at the Event Center to share with the community the eminent need for volunteers for EMT training…focusing on not only taking the classes but taking the necessary testing to get licensed and become an active EMT.

  • Moe & Gertie: Senior Citizen Terminology

    Betty Muson, For the PCN|Nov 9, 2022

    As written by Moe to his sister, Gertie Dear Gertie, Old Charlie went on a toot last week; he got hisself thrown in the hoosegow. And me along with him. His wife warned him about those speak-easys on easy street. But Charlie, being Charlie, paid no attention to her. She told him,“If you end up in the slammer, I'm not going to bail you out. You can stay there until the cows come home as far as I'm concerned." Waking up in there along with Charlie,I had a humdinger of a headache. That rotgut they served there sure had a kick to it.

    It has been such a change, but we have definitely changed from the very hot to the very cold. The new track is looking very nice, now if it just stays that way till spring when the grass starts growing. It should be better now that it has been raised and refinished.

  • Ranchers face tough decisions about herd sizes following another year in drought

    Nov 9, 2022

    Another year of drought has prompted tough decisions for ranchers as they decide how many cattle they can feed over the winter. Last year’s drought forced many Montana ranchers to reduce their herd sizes because of challenging growing conditions and the high cost of hay. This year, similar conditions have dampened hopes of rebuilding herds in some parts of the state — leading agricultural economists to highlight considerations for ranchers as the days grow colder. From 2021 to 2022, Montana saw a reduction in its cattle inventory by...

The wind was in the low 50s with gusts of over 70 mph in Malta, and though Malta's offense struggled to score, Malta Head Coach Nick Oxarart didn't use it as an excuse. "Besides the 50 mph winds that limited a large part of our offense, Jefferson's size, strength and speed were ultimately what became too much to overcome on...
