Never a good time

INFO I meant to thrive but could only survive as our editor was on vacation. There is never a great time to get sick, but as Mark left town, an upper respiratory infection ran through me, making the w...

 

My favorite Phillips County place

It took me a whole two years, but I finally went out to Nelson Reservoir to fish. I almost forgot how nice Nelson was, though I typically get a weekly reminder from our area’s athletes. When I ask kids where their favorite spot in Phillips County...

 

Brand new second shoes

I did something strange a couple of months ago and it paid off! I bought a pair of second hand Jordan IV Retro shoes for $40. These shoes have clearly seen better days. They are scuffed up and have...

I love 'van'?

I know I was skeptical at first per my previous write up about our new vehicle. But I have been driving our family minivan for a week or so and I love it. I know praising the room, comfort and dependa...

 

Ugh, a minivan

It went against everything I know, but it’s all over. So, I took the leap with my wife. To sell our family SUV and get a van. Ugh, a minivan. The day that PJ was born in June of 2012, we realized that our car’s air conditioning was not adequate...

Happy Crazy Days

INFO Though I missed a lot of it, I thoroughly enjoyed what time I did spend at the Malta Chamber of Commerce’s Malta Crazy Days event. Like the First State Bank Car Show, or any other big event...

A joy of Summer time

Yeah, I quit for about five years. But when on the keto diet, it helps to have healthy snack options, which is why I dove right back into eating sunflower seeds. I normally eat those jokers by the...

 

Staying put, for now

I’m not sure if I have written anything about this but…Our house is unofficially off the market. It looks like we are setting up to rough it through at least one more winter here in Malta. Simply put, we need to redo the siding on our house....

That's my boy

I was going to write about how I purchased my first pair of Jordan brand shoes at age 31, but I have a more important story. PJ started tee-ball! It is his first time playing in a real baseball game....

Yes, I went to State C Track...

I see it coming. This week I had the chance to cover the 2019 State Class A-C Track and Field Meet in Laurel, MT. At this event were the three Class C teams that are covered in the PCN. I know it’s...

10 years of pain

I’m a man. So the thought of anyone touching my feet makes me uneasy. I cringe at the thought of getting a pedicure or a foot massage. Even going to a podiatrist is a no-go. That being said, I...

The Census is important

Selling a home is a waiting game. There is a slim chance that we may be here for a while; as long as you’ll have us, we will be happy. Thinking about the possibility of change can be both exciting a...

Peezy in Montana Part 1

It is hard to talk about moving. We love it here. Ironically, thinking about it takes me back to when I moved here a little less than seven years ago. At that time, I was content with my job at...

Slow Cleaner

I have to admit something. I am terrible at doing chores. No, not because I am a guy, but I think it has something to do with my attention span. Back when I was growing up, when it came to cleaning,...

Heavy hand, heavier heart

If you have seen me moping around Phillips County lately, it’s because the whispers you have heard or seen are true; we are moving sometime in the near future. Though it will be a new beginning for...

Reminds me of my childhood

It’s interesting being a parent at times. I enjoy watching my boys play together. Now that Lincoln is starting to get around by crawling or assisted walking we get to see the boys interact more and...

 

I should stick to sports

Disclaimer: I am cheesy and definitely not always correct, so take these next words with a grain of salt. I mean well, even if it doesn’t translate well. For most of my life, Valentine’s Day has...

 

Frozen meltdown

It was a cold day in the United States last Wednesday, January 30. People were freaking out because temperatures reached -50 below in different Midwestern states. Luckily for me, I know plenty of peop...

 

My new favorite hobby

I get into some weird hobbies sometimes. Roasting my own coffee beans is one of those weird things that I enjoy to do nowadays. I am not the only one. Most people just drink coffee no matter the...

 

Oh, the memories

I am not too fond of moving. And by moving, I mean moving my personal belonging from one building to another. As many of you know, we switched offices a week or so ago. I knew the day would be coming...

 

Home for the holidays

It has been a weird holiday season for our family. But not weird in a bad way. It was almost like a mini vacation for us due to the fact that we had a few days off in consecutive weeks. Of course we...

 

CHEAT DAY !!!!

So I had a cheat day. But I did not post that to my keto support group’s page on social media. That is one way to easily get attacked. If I know one thing about the internet, it’s that people are...

 

No time for sickness

The Monday before last Monday was pretty intense. What I have feared would happen did. I got sick on a Monday. At the PCN, Monday is an essential day for writing news and general wrap up. My Monday mo...

 

Bummers

Last week I talked about the things I enjoyed about our vacation to Lake Tahoe and this week I wanted to talk about the things that bummed me out about our trip. I have a problem with simply enjoying vacations. During my 22nd birthday, while I was...

 

Katrina Hotel

I'm about six years late on this press release, but here it goes. I was hit with a shock wave of news when I found out that a building from my past was imploded in 2012. That building was the Grand...
