  • This Montana Marine veteran is sick and tired of 'anti-American' rhetoric

    Updated Jul 19, 2019

    I’ve met Montana Sen. Steve Daines a few times. I’m a constituent. Although I don’t agree with him on a lot of issues, he always seemed nice, professional and respectful. He was good to my son Cory, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Once, when Daines was still a congressman, my son and I visited his office in Washington D.C. to persuade him to support the renewal of the Muscular Dystrophy Care Act. He did, and even called Cory days later to personally tell him about it. He took Cory out onto the House floor, let him cast a...

  • Letter to the Editor - Say no to new debt collection proposal

    Updated Jul 19, 2019

    Editor, They told us if we got educated then we would see success in our lifetime. Yet, more than 44 million Americans have student debts that combine to total $1.5 trillion. Having to borrow money for school is stressful enough; abusive debt collection practices don’t help. And now the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is seeking to increase harassment of graduates over their debts. The CFPB wants to allow debt collectors to email and text consumers without consent, while also calling up to seven times per week per d...

  • View from the North 40: I hope appearances aren't that important

    Pam Burke|Updated Jul 19, 2019

    The biggest problem with living a secluded lifestyle in the country is that you forget about the possibility of visitors, how to fit other living beings into the sum total of your day, or that you need to look in a mirror before opening the front door. At about 5 a.m. on July 5, I was awakened from a sound sleep by a sharp knock on the door. I’d stayed up late because fireworks and horses don’t really mix. I’d gotten the horses settled down soon after the first bangs, booms...

    Chris Peterson|Updated Jul 19, 2019

  • The Stampede is Coming

    George Ferguson|Updated Jul 19, 2019

    The world of Professional Bull Riding has become wildly popular, led by the actual PBR Tour. Across America, and beyond, the PBR packs major sports arenas for its tour stops, and, the riders who compete, have become stars in their sport, just like stars of the NBA, Major League Baseball, and the NFL. And just like the major sports in America, the PBR has a minor league, so to speak, and that tour has made Havre and the Great Northern Fair a popular stop. Named the Cody...

  • Northstars advance

    Chris Peterson|Updated Jul 19, 2019

    The Havre Northstars American Legion baseball team hasn’t had a lot of success at the Northern A District tournament over the last decade or so. But Thursday in Medicine Hat, the Northstars began exercising those demons, earning an 8-5 win in the opening game over Tri-County. Havre scored four runs in the first two innings and then used a solid performance from starting pitcher Kennedy McKay to notch a win that advances the Northstars to the next round against Vauxhall this af...

  • Hi-Line Living: Hemp is growing on the Hi-Line

    Derek Hann|Updated Jul 19, 2019

    In Montana, agriculture is not only an industry but a way of life, and some farmers are seeing the reintroduction of hemp as an opportunity to give new life to the family farm. "You stop at the Town Pump and you talk to the local farmers, and all of them say the same things, something's gotta change or their going to go out of business, because they are just scraping by," Harlem-area producer Rob Klingaman said. Hemp is also known as cannabis, which is also a term for...

  • Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

    Updated Jul 19, 2019

    You know, Lord, while riffling — or thumbing — through some papers, up popped a prayer for vacations. There should be a prayer for everything; absolutely everything should be bathed in prayers, so with that in mind, here we go: A Prayer for Vacations Loving Father, who didst make this earth so fair; open our eyes to see its wonder and our hearts to feel its beauty. In our days of refreshments and recreation, draw us nearer to Thee through the things which Thou hast made. May the joy of Thy sunshine, the quiet of Thy for...

  • Pastor's Corner: 'The Lord is my rock'

    Updated Jul 19, 2019

    Last week, I talked about the beauty of creation and I challenged you each day to ask yourself, “where I have seen God today?” Don’t get me wrong, we are surrounded by God’s beautiful country! But as we all know, creation can have a destructive side too – floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc. And in my case, an unfortunate rock. You see, amidst the wonderful experiences I described of hiking in state parks and sight-seeing in Glacier National Park, I also had the experience of having my car towed out of Beaver Creek Park afte...

  • Out Our Way: I am talking to you! - Exodus 20:1-21

    Updated Jul 19, 2019

    Out our way, like everywhere else, there are good days and bad. For the past few years, as many of you know, I have faced a great many hard times. A common theme in this column is me getting tossed from Doc’s back and hitting Terra Firma with a vengeance. And believe me, that terra is plenty firm! Fortunately, aside from sprained ribs on occasion and a great many bruises and aches, I have never been badly hurt. Even so, getting back up is always a challenge. The old phrase “Cowboy up” comes to mind as I crawl on my hands...
