  • HED: Thanks to Helena Commission for Supporting Lincoln Proposal

    Lincoln Prosperity Group|Updated Mar 10, 2022

    In 2015, a group of Montanans from Lincoln, Helena, and nearby communities set out to accomplish something that today would seem, in retrospect, extremely daunting, given the deep political divisions that unfortunately characterize the public arena these days. We set out to draft a proposal for how the Forest Service can manage 200,000 acres of public lands that stretch across the upper Lincoln Valley and along the Continental Divide northwest of Helena, a proposal that would...

  • Keep Your Address Current

    News Release, Montana Department of Revenue|Updated Mar 10, 2022

    HELENA - The Montana Department of Revenue has an important message to income tax filers: Keep your mailing ad-dress current with the department. This is especially true for anyone filing a Montana income tax return for the first time.

And, the Post Office will not forward your refund check to your new address. That mea...

  • Dish up a classic comfort food this St. Patrick's Day

    Updated Mar 10, 2022

    Everyone has "corned beef and cabbage" on the brain come St. Patrick's Day. But another flavorful dish might appeal to a greater number of people with Irish roots. Shepherd's Pie is a savory dish made of minced lamb that originated in England but also made the jump to Ireland, where it became a popular comfort food. While Shepherd's Pie can be made with freshly cooked ground meat, it also is a fine way to use leftovers from a previous meal. Shepherd's Pie is commonly mistaken...

  • The meaning behind the Shamrock

    Updated Mar 10, 2022

    When talking about Ireland and its culture and symbolism, many different images come to mind. Affectionately known as the Emerald Isle, Ireland is perhaps best known for its bright green hue. Irish flags and even harps are symbolic of the nation, but there is perhaps one symbol that most widely represents the country: the shamrock. A shamrock, by definition, is a young sprig of clover. However, plant experts actually have said that shamrocks are a distinct species of the clove...

  • How switching the clocks can affect your health

    Updated Mar 10, 2022

    Much of the world adjusts their clocks each spring and fall. In the fall, clocks are fixed on standard time, while in the spring they're moved forward one hour to daylight saving time, or DST. The rationale behind DST has long been based on energy savings, as the demand for electricity to light homes is related to the times when people go to bed at night and rise in the morning. Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation in 1975 determined that moving clocks...

  • From My Perspective: Putting Aside our Differences

    Tammy Jordan|Updated Mar 10, 2022

    Holy cow! In the last ten days we’ve seen the start of a war, the release of Pfizer court documents regarding the COVID vaccine side effects, and our little town of Lincoln is fighting and divided over a community master plan. Pile all of that onto two years of a pandemic and isolation and we have the makings of a sad and hostile environment. Never in my life did I think I would see the day that we’d be faced with another world war, and a time when people would be wor...
