  • Montana Tales and Trails

    Bruce Auchly, FWP Region 4 Information Officer|Updated Jan 31, 2019

    Ever wonder on a cold, snowy winter day what fish are doing under the ice? The short answer is: about the same as the rest of the year. They breathe, eat and try to avoid being eaten. There are, however, some differences in winter. First, it's important to remember that freshwater fish like reptiles and amphibians are coldblooded. (Scientists prefer the more precise word, poikilotherms, but we'll forgive them.) That means their body temperatures are controlled through...

  • Lawmakers push legislation to address Montana's mental health crisis

    Shaylee Ragar, Legislative News Service University of Montana School of Journalism|Updated Jan 31, 2019

    When Brandi King finished a 14-month deployment with the United States Army, she returned home to Montana’s Fort Belknap Indian Reservation to heal. King carried with her the trauma she experienced during combat in Mosul, Iraq. She began to feel anxious, hypervigilant and she couldn’t sleep at night. In rural Montana, mental healthcare resources can be scarce. King wasn’t able to see a counselor or support specialist, and her post-traumatic stress progressed. She became suicidal and attempted to take her own life more than...

  • Conversations with God

    Updated Jan 31, 2019

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: The deer stopped in, they nosed about, we’d not seen deer for weeks! They check the trees because they know, Crabs aren’t on Mountain Peaks. They spied water in near birdbath, they all needed a drink. Twelve deer drank fast, bumping their heads, ‘bath’ emptied in a ‘wink’! They were thirsty; they ‘slurped’ it all - then checked out Mountain Ash. Fallen berries they gobbled up, then to the Crabs they dash. Wind blew Crabs down; deer gobbled them - then leaped to snag more Crabs. The tallest deer saw l...

    The government of the United States opened up last week (for three more weeks) to solve the problem of border security and the President’s preference for a border wall. Federal employees should get paid. The government had been shut down for over a month. Why? Because the Democratic controlled House of Representatives won’t give the President a border wall, a wall along the border with Mexico. That border is long and the wall not feasible in certain areas. So the President closed federal offices. We have one of those in Eka...

    Good Morning, To a rancher, this is a great time of year. The mailbox is filled with catalogs for bull sales. You know how your mailbox fills up around Christmas with catalogs from every place you ever dropped a dollar, or in the spring as the ground starts to thaw a little, the seed catalogs come out with the garden supplies. Well, this time of year is like that for a rancher. You peruse papers to see what the sales are averaging across the nation. You compare the breed averages and market statistics. It takes some...

  • Local woman offers services to four-legged friends

    Updated Jan 31, 2019

    Jennifer Bird first learned about equine massage therapy while attending Montana State University. "The things that therapists could do for a horse always intrigued me," she said. A 2007 Carter County High School graduate, Bird went to Bozeman to study animal science. She received her bachelor's degree in 2011. After college, Bird thought about taking classes for equine massage, but instead moved to Broadus where she spent three years working for the department of revenue. The...
