  • Welcome to the Mosquito Valley Golf Course, Harlem Course Re-branded

    Kody Farmer|Mar 30, 2022

    The temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer, baby calves and new born lambs are on the ground. Spring fever is definitely here, and despite the rather mild winter we just had, residents up and down the Hi-line are chomping at the bit to get out and enjoy it. Sure, there is plenty of work that needs to be done before many can play. Farm and ranch work is never ending for sure, and even the average city dweller has chores that need to be taken care of outside before one can have some...

  • Skills, patience, and pride bring smiles

    Steve Edwards|Mar 30, 2022

    Alert readers may recall a story I did in 2017 about Roy Case's evolving Western Cedar Birdhouse business/hobby. Using scrap ends of cedar boards left over from another project he began building "duplex-style" birdhouses. That was version 1.0, to use the current style of naming evolving high tech products (Roy's birdhouses are kind of high tech). Then came version 2.0, a single occupant birdhouse that went beyond the traditional birdhouse with Roy's own unique additions-outdoor toilets,...

  • One Health Revises Intentions Regarding Pharmacy

    Donna Miller|Mar 30, 2022

    Milk River Pharmacy will not, after all, be occupying any space in the new health clinic building at Harlem.

    Donna Miller|Mar 30, 2022

    Mar 30, 2022

    From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham Q: Is it true that Queen Victoria believed in Jesus Christ? A: In the biography of Queen Victoria there is a heart-warming story told.

    Karyn Higgins|Mar 30, 2022

    On April 1, 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools’ Day by playing practical jokes on each other. Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery. Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start...
