  • Phillips County Election Results

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Nov 16, 2022

    In one of two contested races in Phillips County last Tuesday, Ann Remely was elected to fill the County Treasurer position. She will also be taking on the position of Superintendent of County Schools, which has been a part-time position for years; this position was most recently filled by Darlene Kolczak. As a result of changes within the offices at county and state levels, the duties of the County Assessor are now associated with the Treasurer’s office, and this is the third duty Ann will be fulfilling. With no competition, she was able to g...

  • P.C. Legacy: Petre Earns Spot on Top 20 List

    Pierre Bibbs, Publisher|Nov 16, 2022

    A couple of weeks ago, Tara (Shores) Petre, a 2007 Malta High School graduate, made the Bozeman Daily Chronicle's Top 20 Under 40 list last October. The PCN caught up with Petre to talk about her career, what she remembers of her hometown, and how being from Malta may have helped her in her current world. "That was a little bit of a humbling experience," Petre said of making the Top 20 Under 40 list. "Some of those people were involved in the nomination process, so it was humbling but also very...

    On Wednesday, November 9, 2022, following a hearing, the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole granted parole to Criss Case over the objections of the victims' families and the Phillips County Attorney.

    Kari Hould, PCN Staff|Nov 16, 2022

  • Moe & Gertie: Moe gets a reply

    Betty Munson, For the PCN|Nov 16, 2022

    Gertie replies to Moe's letter Dear Moe, Upon receipt of your letter,I thought it best to inform you immediately of the latest Cornburg happenings. Cousin Obie is on the lam. It happened thisaway: Sigurd Olson opened his store one morning to find the safe wide-open and the cash all gone. Nothing else in his General Merchandise was missing. He didn't have a clue when he called our erstwhile town cop but Deputy Backwater had a notion-considering that the front door's key was in the lock. So he hied himself over to Sigurd's house where he found Si...

  • Montana Weather--be careful what you wish for!

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Nov 16, 2022

    The weather finally changed. I should have written about it sooner. It seldom fails. Pen a column lamenting the endless days of clear skies and balmy temps, and by the time those words reach print there will be a change. Just days after writing that column I found myself standing in a cold, steady rain in Livingston watching my grandson in goal for the Park High Rangers soccer team during a Class A State semifinal match against Whitefish. The Rangers won in a shutout but lost the next week to a...

  • Fixing the Laziest Muscle in my Body

    Pierre Bibbs, Play Ball|Nov 16, 2022

    I have to admit that I wasn’t as ready for my eye surgery as I thought! Last Tuesday, I went under the knife to fix my lazy eye, something that I have had since I was born. I had a surgery to help it when I was in high school, but a person typically has to go through a couple of them to correct the eye. I admit that the surgery isn’t life or death but it is annoying as a reporter or person when I try to make eye contact and a person looks over their shoulder, as if to gesture “is he looki...

  • Dodson News for Wednesday, November 16, 2022

    Eldora Henry, PCN Correspondent|Nov 16, 2022

    The cold has sure stayed in and is breaking records for this date all over. It is an awful lot of snow on the ground too and they predict more. In some places, the snowfall has been more in the low places than it has been in the mountains. The town has been quite quiet----maybe because of the bitter cold. We wish all having a birthday or an anniversary best wishes and congratulate each and every one of them. Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark----you know...

    Dixie Stordahl, PCN Correspondent|Nov 16, 2022

    Oh my goodness, you loyal readers, you won’t believe this! I’ve been watching five little birds for nearly a week now. At first, I wasn’t sure what kind they were, the sunlight makes it harder to see the color. But they are eastern bluebirds! Yes! I’ve tried to get a good photo, but just can’t get close enough to get a good one. They roost in the eves of the roof over the deck, all cuddled together. I certainly have been blessed by these colorful birds! The North Country Mavericks earned th...
