  • Morser home destroyed by fire

    Mark Hebert, Publisher|Nov 15, 2017

    As anyone who has lived through a heartbreak can tell you, life can change in a second. But as many people who have lived through a tragedy in the community of Phillips County can tell you, as fast as disaster can hit, your neighbors will be there to pick you up just as fast. “Oh my goodness, they have been given all kinds of clothes, food, money, dishes, we have some furniture coming in,” said Angela Dean-Goertz a day after fire destroyed his sister-in-law’s home. “It has just been amazing...

  • Sen. Lang's Montana Special Session Update

    Sen. Mike Lang, SD 17|Nov 15, 2017

    Hello constituents of MT SD 17, from your State Capitol in Helena. The special session, called by the Governor, of the 65th Legislature will begin on Tuesday, November 14th. Our local papers will be printed after this letter was written. I trust we will be able to patch the revenue holes to our state budget. Five things are presently known: 1) Republicans do not want to raise taxes or revenue enhancements as they are being called; 2) Democrats do not want to reduce the bureaucracy of the government; 3) the Governor did not manage the costs of...

  • Introspections with Barbara S.

    Nov 15, 2017

    Dear editor, Trump got friendly with Putin again thru his chummy talks during the Asian trip. Trump states he believes Putin when he stated to him that the Russians did not get involved with the election. Yet the fact that OUR intelligence agencies have proven different. Guess some relationships are hard to break off! Get reminded to shop locally and not Havre, Glasgow or Amazon. Yet the downtown business people fail to clean parking spots so when you get out of a vehicle the area is dangerously icy. Thank you to Albertson's they keep their...

  • Catch me if you can

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoor Columnist|Nov 15, 2017

    Editor's Note: The Montana Highway Patrol Trooper in Parker's column last week was not Malta's MHP Trooper Dan Ohl. I thought grizzly bear encounters were a thing of my past. Now I’m not so sure. A pheasant hunter killed one last weekend. Since giving up hunting elk in the mountains around Yellowstone Park and devoting my time instead to chasing dogs across the prairie in pursuit of flying targets, I figured there was little chance the bears would finally get me. Oh, they came close a few t...

  • Cold? It is 'smoking season'

    Pierre Bibbs, Sports Editor|Nov 15, 2017

    It’s like I blinked and then all of a sudden winter happened. I found out very quickly upon moving here in 2012 that Montana Weather doesn’t play by the same rules as other states that I have lived in. I look outside today and think, there is no way winter starts on Thursday, December 21, when it is already here. When the second snow this fall hit last week and I had to uncover my car, I went from sneakers and a t-shirt to Muck Boots and an insulated hoodie. The roads at times can be tre...
