    MISSOULA – What was expected to be a close game between two top-five teams wasn't even close. Griz stomped the Cats 37-7 in Saturday's Cat-Griz game was a lopsided contest, giving the Montana Grizzlies sole possession of the Big Sky trophy for the first time since 2009.

  • Thanksgiving Week Column

    Edward Martin|Nov 23, 2023

    I like to cook. To me cooking is like playing with the chemistry sets my parents bought me when I was young. They undoubtedly thought I would do the experiments in the accompanying books. The truth is, I rarely, if ever followed the instructions. I liked to try different things to see what would happen. Some results were good, some not so much. A couple were more dangerous than advisable. Likewise, I cook the same way. Some results are delicious, some acceptable, a few disasters. Over the years...

  • Marriage, Divorce & Renewal, Part IV

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Nov 23, 2023

    Reflecting on my teen years, I recalled a spiritual decision I had made to offer my life to God in Christian vocation. I had never forgotten that. In fact, I was lately thinking on that decision and was considering a career in Christian counseling if you can believe that. I decided to go to college in Dallas. But not just any college — Bible college. In August of 1986, I left my parents driveway headed for Dallas. I heard that voice again inside my head: “If you go to that college, you will remarry your wife.” Now, isn’t that interes...

  • Thank You from Ulm Church

    Sandy Harshaw, Ulm Contributor|Nov 23, 2023

    The Ulm Church wanted to thank everyone who donated shoe boxes or supplies to Operation Christmas Child. We ended up with 57 boxes. The Truth Trackers youth group helped put together 30 some of them and they had a blast while doing it. They give up their game time to do this project. We are always sure to put in the essentials of school supplies and hygiene items. They then can go crazy with the other items like toys, water bottles, socks, sunglasses, tools, sewing kits, more toys, etc. They...

  • Ulm News

    Sandy Harshaw, Ulm Contributor|Nov 23, 2023

    The Ulm Pinochle Club met at Erin Faulkners house last Monday where she and Valerie Fowler hosted. We had so much fun as always and even had a couple of double pinochles to announce. Val and Severin each had one and believe me there's a lot of hooping and hollering when it happens. I ended up having high score for the night and Loretta ended up with low score by only 10 points. It's always a great time to snack and visit and have a fun night out for us ladies. Next month we will be doing a...

  • Hometown Heroes

    Vannie Urick, The Belt Valley Voice|Nov 23, 2023

    Veterans are one of the main reasons for the freedom that the United States has provided to its citizens. Through decades many different veterans have lost their lives through serving the nation. Every battle reaching back to the Revolutionary War involved men who fought for their country. They ensured that future generations were given the rights to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to keep and bear arms, the freedom of assembly and the freedom to petition. Veterans are represented through November 11th (Veterans Day) and May...

  • First Thanksgiving in Gold Country

    Nancy Royan, Librarian, Wedsworth Memorial Library|Nov 23, 2023

    “Our first Thanksgiving Day dinner in the territory in the fall of 1863 was one of the memorable dinners I have ever attended. Henry Plummer, desiring to be on good terms with the Chief Justice, Mr. Edgerton, and my husband... invited [us] to dinner…he sent to Salt Lake City, a distance of five hundred miles, and everything that money could buy was served, delicately cooked and with all the style that would characterize a banquet at “Sherry’s” (a fancy restaurant). I now recall to mind that the turkey cost forty dollars in gold (now equal to...
