Century-old bell on its way home to Old Belgian Church - Great Falls Tribune

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Donated By Rt. Rev. Victor Day, V.G.”Within this somewhat cryptic dedication lies the origins of a church, a community and the early history of Catholicism in central Montana.Many may be familiar with John Patrick Carroll, the second bishop of the Diocese of Helena. Carroll is remembered today as the driving force behind construction of the Cathedral of St. Helena and foundation of the first Catholic college in Montana, an institution which now bears his name; Carroll College.Fewer people are aware of the role played by the Right Rev. Victor Day, vicar general of the Diocese of Helena for more than 30 years.In 1912, Monsignor Day traveled from Montana to his native Belgium to organize the immigration of 13 families making their way from the Low Countries of Western Europe to establish a new Catholic colony roughly nine miles east of Valier.Despite few English language skills, rocky soils, little knowledge of Montana’s climate and growing conditions and an early succession of failed crops, the Belgian and Dutch families who settled below what later came to be known as “Belgian Hill” survived and ultimately prospered.The same cannot be said of the church they built by faith and determination, one year before the outbreak of World War I. .oembed-asset-link { border-bottom: 1px solid #e1e1e1; } .oembed-link-anchor { display: block; clear: both; } p.oembed-link-desc { font-size: 100%; color: #666; font-weight: normal; margin: 0 14px 14px 14px; font-family: 'Futura Today Light'; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; }For 50 years, the bell atop Sacred Heart Church (now more commonly known as the “Old Belgian Church”) rang to celebrate the joy of weddings, tolled to mourn the passing of loved ones, and called the faithful to gather for Sunday Mass.Beginning in the 1950s, attendance at the Old Belgian Church began to decline. Insufficient financial support prompted the Diocese of Helena to close the church in 1963.A few years later, the church bell Monsignor Day had donated with such hope and promise was removed from the Old Belgian Church belfry and carefully placed in a newly built bell tower outside Holy Cross Catholic Church in Dupuyer.One century on, and the bell of Monsignor Day has now served a double life – residin

Daniel Thomas Cornell, 70 - Montana Standard

Monday, May 01, 2017

San Francisco where he lived in a commune in the Haight Ashbury District. In 1975, he took advantage of the GI Bill and moved to Bozeman, Montana, where he pursued his love of architecture at Montana State University. He never completed that degree but instead went on to learn the trade of carpentry and house painting. His love for color and the Painted Ladies of San Francisco are reflected in the painting patterns of the historic homes of Butte. He boldly envisioned and began painting these historic homes to show off their beautiful architecture and design. His home today, which he designed and built, showcases his beliefs regarding the beauty of the palette.In 1992, Dan once again enrolled at MSU and completed degrees in Art and Science. He was employed by the Butte School District after his graduation in 1994. Many of his students will give testimony to Dan's passion for the Arts, as well as his unyielding devotion to those he taught. He retired in 2014, and spent the next years doing all the things he loved best: creating art through a variety of mediums, adventure motorcycling on his BMW with friends and his sons, exploring the world and its wonders, building a greenhouse and learning the art of gardening, planting a yard full of sunflowers, and spending more time with his children and grandchildren and teaching them about all of the above. His latest love was Layla, a little red mutt whom he adored and a companion that travelled wherever he went. Layla was by his side as he passed on from this earth, peacefully in his sleep.As his mother greatly influenced him, so did he influence his children who survive him and will forever miss him: Dang Cam Tu, Robbie Cornell, Addie May Cornell Karch (Paul), Seth Lewis Cornell (Kelly), Alexii Caroline Cornell (Shane Rummel) and Andrew Daniel Cornell. His grandchildren adored Gramps. We know that their wonderful memories of him will always go with them: Tina (Brandon), Catherine and Caroline Ngo, Steven Le, Sloan and Lex Blaze Wilson, Brooklyn and Harlyn Rummel, and Elijah Karch.Dan loved being an integral part of the Butte Art Community and Movement. To celebrate this love

Jim McKee: Robert Hawke among Nebraska City greats - Lincoln Journal Star

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Nebraska City in March 1859 and built a house on Fifth Street near Second Avenue.As the Nebraska City/Fort Kearny Cutoff route developed and absorbed much of the gold mining traffic to Colorado and Montana, Hawke & Nuckolls picked up freight traffic coming up the river on steamboats and crossing it on ferries. Within a short time, their business eclipsed even the huge Russell, Majors & Waddell.At the same time Hawke & Nuckolls opened an outfitting store in Mountain City, Colorado, which advertised their business of wholesaling and retailing “Provisions, Groceries, Foreign and Domestic Liquors, Hardware, Mining Tools, Iron, Steel Nails ... Caps, Boots and Shoes ... etc.” Their freighting to Mountain City amounted to 250 tons in one year while their quartz and sawmill there was reported to be “coining money fast.”But back in Nebraska City, a fire, which started in a butcher shop on May 12, 1860, destroyed 38 buildings and houses barely missing Hawke’s year-old house. Sign up for our daily news email The top headlines from Delivered at 11 a.m. Monday-Friday.As the original city developed, inducements of free lots were offered including the one at 111 S. Sixth St. which was given to Conrad Mullis, providing he open a blacksmith shop in the city. Though it is unclear if the blacksmith shop ever opened there or anywhere in Nebraska City, Hawke built a grocery store on the lot in 1868. The two-story, stuccoed brick structure had an auditorium on the second floor giving the building the name of Hawke’s Hall, Hawke’s Opera House or the Standard Theatre. The theater on the upper floor opened December 22, 1868, and was in business until 1891 when the building became a commercial property which still stands today.While his business interests continued to expand, Hawke was one of 10 Nebraska City men who founded and organized the first public school there in 1859. He served on the city council for two years beginning in 1868, and, in the fall of 1870, was elected to the Nebraska state senate in the 8th legislature.While in the senate, he sat on the impeachment trial of Gov. David Butler and voted guilty with the majority. Although he held several strategic posts within the Legislature and was considered successful, he resigned the seat in 1871. Hawke was also one of 20 Nebraskans who issued a call for interested parties to meet at the Commercial Hotel in Lincoln in 1878 to form a state historical society.In the meantime, his businesses prospered, with the retail store alone claiming to have sold $300,00 of merchandise in one year. In 1882, Hawke was elected to

Pamela W. Patterson - Billings Gazette

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Brother Jay’s footsteps, she entered MSU in Bozeman, in the fall of 1972. Majoring in Animal Science she was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority. Her 42 year adventure with a Kid from the hills of Montana began behind a cow in artificial insemination class in 1974. Pam and John Patterson were married Nov. 9, of that year and returned to his family’s ranch on Shane Ridge south of Columbus. She enrolled in Billings Vo-tech after several years and became a Licensed Practical Nurse. Using her degree, she worked at a nursing home in Red Lodge until her sons Tom and Mark were born in 1980, and 1983 respectively. Simultaneously using their “AI” skills that brought them together she and John began building a small purebred Angus herd; 3210 Angus. As the boys grew and entered school in Columbus she returned to medicine this time as a dental assistant; first for Dr. Schlehuber and more recently for Dr. Vesbach. The next 30 years she spent with kids, cattle and cavities until her failing health forced her to retire in June of 2016. She served as Vice President and President of the Montana Angus Auxiliary and for years chaired their ways and means program. For many years she and John served as Advisors of the Montana Jr. Angus Association and were honored to be selected in 2005 as National Advisors of the Year. Her passion for photography transitioned into digital scrapbooking as she documented her many travels, literally around the world, with her Sister Whitney. The quality of the scrapbooks she created and her eye for design did not go unnoticed and she was named to the Creative Team at Designer Digitals. There she shared ideas, photos and design lay-outs daily with friends and colleagues around the world. She loved it!Of all her activities, skills and accomplishments there was nothing in her life that she took more pride in than her family. She would do anything for Tom and Mark and reveled in their own successes, careers and families. Her Daughters-in-law, Corinne and Julie were truly her daughters. Pam’s biggest regret her last few months was that, “GiGi” as her Grandchildren Clara Jane and James Henry called her, would never know the immeasurable love she had for th
