    Patrick Johnston|Updated Aug 4, 2022

  • Looking out my Backdoor: The horse sat on my chest

    Sondra Ashton|Updated Aug 4, 2022

    Let’s start with the back story. Way Back. Last year, because of the pandemic, I took my travel money and gutted my bodega which was a mishmash of shelves cobbled together from scrap wood. Shoved in rather randomly were what I call man tools and that which I didn’t want stored in the house. It was a mess, but needs must. Once my bodega transformed into my guest bedroom, I kept imagining how nice it would be to have a bathroom alongside my bedroom. In back and along the out...

    Pam Burke|Updated Aug 4, 2022

    What were you doing June 29, 2022? Whatever is was, you did less of it than you think you did because that day was not a full 24 hours. That’s right, we were all bilked out of our precious time together by 1.59 milliseconds. The website Timanddate.com which is a go-to site for things atomic clock-related said that this was the shortest day recorded since the atomic clock got fired up in the 1960s. The atomic clock tracks actual length of days through the modern magic of s...

    George Ferguson|Updated Aug 4, 2022

    Stars at every position always litter Frontier Conference football. But year-after-year. fall after fall, there seems to be no position more impactful in the Frontier than that of the running back. Historically, some of the top rushers in all of the NAIA typically come from the Frontier, and it will be to no one's surprise if that happens again in 2022. Starting with Montana Tech's Blake Counts and Montana Western's Reese Neville, three of last year's top four rushers in the...

  • Out Our Way: Tighten that cinch - Phillippians 1:20

    Updated Aug 4, 2022

    Out our way I once heard someone say "There are bold cowboys and old cowboys, but no old, bold cowboys." Well, that isn't exactly the truth. Now I will say I never met an old cowboy who wasn't banged up along the way , but I never met a cowboy worth anything who wasn't bold when boldness was called for. Now me, being perhaps the worst cowboy to work a herd in the history of the profession, and also something of a wimp , have seldom been bold like many others have, but there we...

  • Pastor's Corner: What are you doing with what god has entrusted you?

    Updated Aug 4, 2022

    I was discussing a passage of Scripture with a group of guys at a Men's Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. at Havre Assembly of God Church.

Here is how it reads: 14 "Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. 15 To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each...

    Updated Aug 4, 2022

    More folks have left, both young and old. They flew off through the air. We miss our loved ones very much, but know our family's there. God made us Red, Yellow, Black or White, we're all precious in His sight. God made us all, He'll call us home, and we will be all right. While we're down here, we miss our dears, since they were called away. So many things we'd like to share, had they been left to stay. Our dear one's gone - a river crossed to shore of evergreen. We long to...

  • Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

    Updated Aug 4, 2022

    You know, Lord, sometimes things come in bunches like good things, bad things, happy things, sad things - even hurtful things. It's the hurtful things that are hardest to deal with. We don't want the attitude of one lady who, as she spoke in an unforgiving voice said, "I forgive you but I'll never forget!" We've probably all heard about the lady who knew she had a bad gossiping problem. She went to her Pastor and confessed that she knew she gossiped - so, what could she do...
