  • PART II-B

    multiple authors|Updated Feb 15, 2018

    by Sherry Farwell, Ned Summers & Marguerite Goeders Rozelle THE HOMESTEADER HISTORY OF THE SYKES-BELLTOWER "SURVIVORS" The U.S. Census of 1910 contains just a few recognizable family names of "Nesters" in the vicinity of Sykes-Belltower, e.g., Burditt, Sykes, Massingale, Sigler and Farwell. However, homesteading quickly increased the number of their neighbors. As noted earlier, the ranks of these neighbors were then thinned by severe weather events and The Depression. The...

  • Memories

    Loyd Townsend|Updated Feb 15, 2018

    I was going to continue my articles on old and special neighbors, but decided to go down another rabbit trail this time. There have been a couple of individuals who asked, "Loyd, when are you going to write about your basketball referee days and years?" This may be a good time as basketball season is in full swing. My thoughts here are to bring back memories for people of schools, teams, and special moments during those years. I graduated from high school in the spring of 1948...

  • Hat Tips

    Hello, The luge. I think I’ll try the luge. I enjoy watching the winter Olympics. More so than the summer Olympics. I suppose it’s because as a kid I was really slow. I wasn’t a track and field guy. If you see me running, it’s not me. I did run if a cow was after me, or a mouse. But I just couldn’t see running if nothing was chasing you. I picked rock, so I abhorred lifting for fun. But now winter Olympics, they are different. It’s something I can understand. It’s a lot like home. Especially in South Korea. Because it is...

  • My adventures with bananas

    Bill Lavell|Updated Feb 15, 2018

    Bananas are a wonderful fruit. They are easy to peel and eat; most people like them although some more so than others, of course. My wife Joanne, usually called Jo, took a notion that she didn't like them some years back. She thought that she saw a worm in one, dropped the peel on the floor, and then threw the whole thing in the trash. I had never heard of a worm in a banana before. I told this story to a friend and he told me that when he spent time in Panama with the National Guard, he had seen worms in bananas. I thought...

  • Bright Ideas

    Lois Lambert|Updated Feb 15, 2018

    For several years Brice has worked as my primary Home Care Aide, bringing home $16 an hour. That’s after everything is taken out. That took the home income up to $1800 a month. Added to my $595 in Social Security, that gave me a healthy income to buy generously. The Home Care Company called earlier this month, telling us the Governor had signed budget cuts that take away salary for family members acting as care givers. I realize the state is trying to balance the budget and everyone has to pitch in; this will be our $1800 c...

  • Letter to the editor

    To the Editor: Through With Chew Week is February 18-24! We’ve known for over fifty years that tobacco is killing us – millions of people have quit using, and there are more ex-users in America than there are tobacco addicts. Cigarettes, chewing tobacco, snuff, cigars, they’re all part of an expensive, unhealthy habit on the way out – and the State of Montana wants to speed up the process. If you’re addicted to tobacco, or know someone who is, break out of the habit – call the Montana QuitLine (1-800-QUIT-NOW) or the America...
