  • Hi-Line Darts and Laurels

    Havre Daily News Editorial board

    Laurel — After 12 months of dawdling, public officials have taken some action in the case involving former Police Chief Jerry Nystrom and his wife, Ashlie, for their alleged role in a barroom brawl last year. We have no idea if they are innocent or guilty. But rumors, innuendo and allegations of coverups have run rampant in the community over the past year. Now assault charges have been filed, and the Nystroms can face their accusers in court. The public can now be assured that the case will be heard in court, not in the c...

  • What happens if Twinkies really do go away?

    J.M. HIRSCH, AP Food Editor

    Let's not panic. We all know that Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Wonder bread and the rest of Hostess Brands' oddly everlasting foods aren't going away any time soon, even if the food culture that created them is gasping its last. Yes, Hostess is shutting down. And odds seem to favor the roughly century-old company disappearing from our corporate landscape. But before you rush out to stockpile a strategic Twinkie reserve, consider a few things. Namely, that Twinkies never die. You know full well that the snack cakes down at your corne...

    Havre Daily News editorial board

    Laurel — Mail carriers will conduct their annual food drive on Saturday. There is always a need for food at area food banks, but the need is stronger now than ever. The letter carriers food drive raises more food for food banks than virtually any other event. Help them out by leaving some food near your mailbox.

  • Our View: Racist judge should step down

    Havre Daily News editorial board

    U. S. Judge Richard Cebull would serve the nation, the federal bench and the interests of justice if he would resign promptly. Cebull, Montana's chief federal judge, used a federal computer system in his Billings office to send an email mocking President Barack Obama and his mother to six friends. By any standards, it was a racist diatribe. The text of the message: A little boy said to his mother: 'Mommy, how come I'm black and you're white." "His mother replied, "Don't even go there, Barack! From what I can remember about...

  • Skylights falter on the road

    George Ferguson Havre Daily News sports editor

    Being shorthanded isn't easy, especially when it looks like the women's side of the Frontier Conference is loaded yet again. But being shorthanded on the road is an even more daunting task, and winning on the road is hard enough, even at full strength. And this weekend, the Montana State University-Northern women's basketball team found life on the road to be difficult yet again, as the Skylights lost at Montana Tech 64-54 on Friday, then fell at UM-Western 70-59 Saturday night in Dillon. Northern has now dropped three... Full story

  • MSU-N matmen succeed in Oregon

    George Ferguson Havre Daily News sports editor

    The Montana State University-Northern wrestling team didn't accomplish everything it set out to do in Clackamas, Ore., but the Lights came pretty close. Northern was in Clackamas for two days of wrestling, including a close 22-20 dual loss to the Clackamas Cougars in a Friday night dual. Clackamas is the top-ranked NJCAA team in the country, and the Lights were open at 125 pounds, or the dual might have come out differently. But as tough a loss as it was on Friday night, MSU-N bounced back in a big way during Saturday's...

  • Lights secure all-important split at Montana Tech, Western

    George Ferguson Havre Daily News sports editor

    After the dust settled on this weekend's Frontier Conference men's basketball games, one thing has become quite clear – the league is wide open. And that's precisely why this weekend's road split was very big for the Montana State University-Northern Lights. Northern captured a hard-fought 67-61 win at Montana Tech on Friday night, before dropping its first league game of the season, a 69-64 loss at UM-Western on Saturday night. The split left MSU-N at 2-1 in conference play, but just a half game behind Lewis-Clark State f... Full story

  • HHS swims back in Great Falls

    George Ferguson Havre Daily News sports editor

    When the Havre High boys and girls swim teams jump into the pool at the Swarthout Fieldhouse Saturday in Great Falls, the Blue Ponies will certainly know their opponent.

And HHS kept rolling early with wins by Grant Pattison and Kameron Pribyl, as well as Jared Ruttokfsky. Duell Stadel and Dillon Seely also grabbed victories for the Blue...

  • Skylights aiming to get on track

    George Ferguson Havre Daily News sports editor

    The Montana State University-Northern women's basketball team suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the University of Great Falls last Friday night. And even before that loss, the Skylights were dealing with a host of injury problems, none of which have been resolved. So to say this weekend's road trip to Montana Tech and UM-Western is daunting would be an understatement. The Skylights (9-8, 0-1) visit Tech tonight in Butte, then play at Western Saturday night in Dillon. "It's a very tough trip for us," MSU-N head coach Chris Mo... Full story

Tonight, the Lights (12-4, 1-0) take step two in the process when they visit Montana Tech in Butte. Northern wraps up a weekend swing at UM-Western on Saturday.
