  • 74th annual Harlem Seed Show is a wrap!

    Steve Edwards|Mar 13, 2024

    Looking back over the stories I've written leading up to and about the annual Harlem Seed Show I found I tried to write about everything offered at each show. I decided this year to approach my wrap up story in a different way. For the 74th edition, I'm writing about my observations and the things that caught my attention. If you attended this year's show you might have seen things differently but here's my take on the show that ended last Saturday. A little history: Paul Rasmussen, the Chairman...

    Steve Edwards|Mar 13, 2024

    Alert "Journal" readers may recognize the name "St. Urho." Actually, really alert readers will remember when the Finnish saint was first introduced in the "Journal" I spelled his name wrong-oops. That's all in the past, way back in 2022 when St. Urho made his first visit to Chinook. He appeared first at the Chinook Senior Center for lunch on March 16, the official St. Urho Day. Here's a bit of background to this year's runup to St. Urho's Day, 2024. St. Urho created in Minnesota as a reaction...

    To the editor: Help can’t wait when emergencies strike — not for the family displaced by a disaster, the patient in need of lifesaving blood or the deployed service member alerted to a family crisis at home. Every day, when our neighbors face emergencies like these, they rely on local volunteers, blood donors, financial supporters and community partners who deliver care and hope through Montana Red Cross. Last year alone, we helped more than 560 Montanans impacted by disaster by delivering food, shelter and clothing, and most importantly – a sh...

  • Blessings---Hello God, it's me, Mara

    Mar 13, 2024

    You know, Lord, when we ask You to bless us or to bless others, we are asking YOU to impart Your favor, protection and peace. Blessings prayed for others have a way of returning to bless the one who prayed. Yes, we ARE born to die and several folks we know, have recently passed on to You. Can’t we just imagine how ‘John’ kissed his son, Fred, tucked him into bed, and said, ‘Good night, and God bless you, my precious son.’ Then, years later, when ‘Freddy’ was visiting his frail dad in the nursing home, he bent to kiss him and said, ‘God bless yo...
