Reasons to abolish death penalty

I am moved by Warren ‘Dite’ Little’s letter in the Missoulian, March 12, 2012. As a parent who has had her own son die before his time, I share some of the devastation he lives with. I also appreciate the long years he has been involved with this issue in various ways. But I do…

The gas came out of the overflow and  dumped onto the roof of the…

Vet clinic offers laser therapy

    By Jean Schurman We all hurt when our animal hurts, especially if it is an old dog or a beloved cat. Just like humans, these animals suffer from the aches and pains of bones and joints that have become stiff with time. Now there is a new therapy in Stevensville that is giving…
