  • Improvements being made to Marjorie Feist Park

    Steve Edwards|Jul 3, 2024

    As parks in Chinook are starting to see changes, another Chinook park is also starting to see improvements with hopefully much more to come thanks in part to a prodigal son. Marjorie Feist Park is located north of US2 and the railroad tracks just east of the Indiana Street crossing. Marjorie Feist Park, also known as Northside Park had five new trees planted last year, with hopes of seeing more along with other improvements thanks in part to the namesake's son, Bob Feist.

  • Mountain lions can be found everywhere…including central and northeastern Montana

    Jul 3, 2024

    GLASGOW – Montana is home to mountain lions, so it’s no surprise if mountain lions are seen in the central and northeastern parts of the state. Mountain lions can be found across the state…basically anywhere there are deer or elk, which is their primary food source. However, due to their elusive nature, they are rarely seen. Mountain lions have established populations in the Missouri River breaks and the island ranges of central and northeastern Montana, such as the Bears Paw and Little Rockies. In addition, nearly every year, mountain lions...

    You know, Lord, just sharing what a friend shared about John Quincy Adams, the sixth U.S. President, in 1837, at the age of 69, in delivering a Fourth of July speech at Newburyport, Massachusetts. Here is a copy of what Adams said: “Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day (the Fourth of July)? Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in t...

    Theresa Danley|Jul 3, 2024

    I’ve always enjoyed road trips. If I have the time I prefer taking to the open road than to the air. Recently I found myself traveling south more regularly than usual but what a beautiful time to hit the road. The season’s rains have cast an emerald glaze over every horizon which feels as refreshing as cucumber slices to the eyes. No, I didn’t go anywhere for a spa treatment, but my senses were revitalized just the same. As the miles rolled by I found myself hanging onto a blush of purple along the road side and wondered if that was flax alrea...
