  • Dawgs win in Lame Deer

    Updated Sep 20, 2023

    The Bulldogs traveled to Lame Deer on Friday for a game that counted only as a junior varsity contest, though both teams had varsity players suited. The Bulldogs handily won, securing a running clock by halftime when the score was 44-8. The game allowed younger players to get some playing time while also allowing older players to work on specific skills. The Dawgs also played a 3-4 defense for the entirety of the game - the third different defensive front they have shown so...

    Karen Odell|Updated Sep 20, 2023

    September 18, 2023 The news will be a little short this week. Karen has been quite busy. She wrote out a very old song, and then she arranged her piano accompaniment and recorded the piano part. Next, she recorded her voice and added it to the mix. Then, she wrote out the violin part for the break in the middle. After that, she has been practicing every day to sing and play at Jeff Odell’s wedding. She sent the mp3 to Jeff and he passed it onto the DJ. With that done, she had to be sure she packed the violin along with her w...

  • Let's Focus on Property Tax Solutions Not Political Soundbites

    Representative Llew Jones, Appropriations Chairman|Updated Sep 20, 2023

    Montana is facing a growing housing crisis, driven by an influx of out-of-state home buyers and telecommuters. This is pushing up prices, making it difficult for Montanans to find affordable housing, and increasing residential property taxes. A solution I propose for consideration is to change the way property taxes are calculated for vacation homes and short-term rentals. Currently, all residential properties are taxed at the same rate, regardless of whether they are owner-occupied, rented out long-term, rented out...

  • Cooking in the West

    Susan Metcalf|Updated Sep 20, 2023

    Fall is an anxious time of year on ranches, because pre-conditioning, weaning, and shipping are the dreaded days of the year when ranchwives are called upon to sort a lot of cattle with their husbands. It is my hypothesis that there are many ranchers who go to bed at night this time of year without the benefit of having ingested a nice warm dinner. More likely they cooked themselves a frozen pizza or just had cereal. If you have not sorted a lot of cattle with your spouse, let me explain the dynamics of it. I know that when...

  • Conversations with God

    Updated Sep 20, 2023

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know Lord, You are the Creator – so YOU know that Autumn arrives on Saturday, according to several of the calendars hanging around here. Several friends have mentioned that, to them, it’s a yearly relief from those muggy mid-nineties that THEY have had, and now the cool breeze is inviting them, and maybe us, outside because the sun no longer seems so hot and angry. You know that we probably all grow a little weary of each season toward its end, but the beginning of every NEW season always brings...

    Updated Sep 20, 2023

She fondly remembered that as a young girl, she and her best friends would get to go to Saturday or Sunday matinees. Shirley...

    Updated Sep 20, 2023

    Editor's note: The above photo and following caption were sent to the Eagle on September 17th.
