Support for incumbents

The primaries are coming up rapidly – June 5th will be here before we know it and it’s time to support a couple of candidates that will provide the most continuity and consistency in both of their elections. As a Montana sportsman I expect my elected officials to uphold my rights to hunt and fish,…

Re: Agenda 21

  I am responding to the person who said that Agenda 21 “is good politics.” Interesting! I am all for sustainability and clean water and recycling! I believe it is the right thing to do for our planet, our self, and our community. As individuals do the right thing, everything gets better. I voluntarily make…

Support for Presswood

  This is a letter in support of a candidate who’s running for the position of Clerk of District Court in the upcoming 2012 election. Her name is Maureen Draper Presswood. Maureen has been employed in the Clerk of District Court’s Office in Hamilton for the last 20 consecutive years. I have known Maureen (or…

Support for Pearson

When the legislature is in session it is common to see a legislator rise before a vote and announce that he or she has a conflict of interest and therefore recuse themselves and not vote on that bill. Though Sen. Bob Lake has taken money from the NorthWestern Energy’s PAC, Mike Pichette a NEW lobbyist,…

Stylish milage

  I’ve watched a Jon Tester political advertisement on my TV. Senator Tester is explaining how a veteran told him he was having a hard time getting to his medical treatment center as he was only getting 11 cents a mile for his travel. Apparently he was not able to afford the cost of travel…

Support for Corvallis levy

  Corvallis residents, please consider voting for the upcoming Corvallis School Mill Levy. Passage of the mill levy will not result in an increase in taxes but rather a decrease! In fact, residents can expect a reduction of $0.47 per $100,000 of the taxable market value of their property. The reason for this is that…

Support for Corvallis levy

  Corvallis School District voters have an opportunity to prevent a staggering $190,000 funding blow to the district’s tradition of quality education by approving a levy to support the school on May 8. The looming reduction harms the best interests of all the citizens of our valley, whether they have  children or not, whether they’re…

Support for Florence levy

  As a former Florence Carlton School (FCS) Trustee, I want to address misleading information by Richard Paris about FCS and the levy. With more than 551 students and 30 teachers, state law requires FCS have a full-time superintendent. Darby falls below those levels. The FCS Board will reduce a principal to half time next…
