  • Celebrating history: Things set up in courthouse

    Emily Mayer|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    The newspapers 100 years ago this week announced that it was very cold. However, that did not stop the people of this area from conducting business and having fun.

TAKE OFFICE IN COURT-HOUSE Through the courtesy of the Board of County Commissioners, L. K. Devlin and George Dewar have each taken a new office in the Hill...

  • View from the North 40: February, what are you doing?

    Pam Burke, Humor columnist|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    February? Oh, right, I’m supposed to hate February. It’s the second month in a row without a vacation-worthy holiday — after that Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Year glut of free time. The rest of the world is talking about spring and that liar Punxsutawney Phil, but up here in the near-Arctic no skunks are out, no bears have emerged looking for tourists to eat, sewer lines haven’t thawed, horses aren’t shedding, only the impatient cows (and the ones seduced by errant, vagabond...

  • Our View: Hi-Line darts and laurels

    Updated Feb 12, 2016

    Laurel: A Teddy Roosevelt impersonator visited Havre High School earlier this week to give students a first-hand lesson in history. Hal Stearns, a Montana storyteller, spoke last week at the Senior Center of northcentral Montana giving people interesting facts about Montana’s many small towns. These are just two facets of great programs sponsored by Humanities Montana under its Hometown Humanities program that is focused on Havre this year. We’d like it if the special program never ended.

  • A Pony Kind of Pressure

    Chris Peterson|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    Pressure. It’s something that just about every athlete and every team faces at one time or another. Yet, the Havre High wrestling team seems immune to it or maybe they just know how to deal with it better than their opponents. But one thing that there is no doubt about is that the Blue Ponies have been the power of Class A wrestling for the past two decades and that doesn’t appear to be changing any time soon. One reason the Ponies have become such a force in Montana wre...

    Chris Peterson|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    George Ferguson|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    With how tough the Frontier Conference is, it’s been tough for the Montana State University-Northern Skylights to string a winning streak together this season. But, they’re on one now.

  • IT'S TIME TO RUMBLE: Northern vs Iowa Tonight

    George Ferguson|Updated Feb 12, 2016

    The Montana State University-Northern wrestling program has a storied history. A glance up at the banners hanging from the roof of the Armory Gymnasium, or a look at the wall on one end of the gym dedicated to all of Northern’s past NAIA All-Americans, and one can see the success, one can feel the greatness that is Northern wrestling. The 2015-16 Lights have been adding to that legacy all season long, being one of the top teams in the NAIA this season, and next month, they hop...
