Support for Strohmaier

  There are 7 Democrats running for the U.S. Congress seat being vacated by Denny Rehberg this year. I support Dave Strohmaier for Congress because he has the makings of a statesman in his values and style and commitment to issues. During Dave Strohmaier’s years on the Missoula City Council, he has shown a forward-looking…

Support for Wilmer

  This year Montanans have an opportunity to elect someone to Congress who will put our interests first. At a time when we see laws and policies instituted that benefit the few at the expense of the majority of us, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to elect a candidate, Franke Wilmer, to the…

Support for Presswood

What is happening here in the valley? Can a person just trespass on someone’s property and place campaign signs wherever they please? Whatever happened to honesty, integrity and morality? Everywhere you see a campaign sign for “Maureen Draper Presswood for Clerk of District Court” – permission has been obtained to hang that sign. Let’s elect…

Problem at Stevensville School

  I have been a resident in this town for almost 28 years. I went to school here in Stevi, and graduated from Job Corps. It has recently come to my attention from a lot of people that Stevensville School seems to support bullying. The stoners are allowed to push around the other students as…

Support for Greef

Ed Greef is again running for the House of Representatives and I want to say what an honor it was serving in the legislature with him. I would also like to thank the good folks from Ravalli County for electing him to represent them in Helena. He served with dignity and honor and made his…

The big picture of natural resource economy

  Some thoughts after having attended the County Commissioners meeting on the Bitterroot Valley Resource Plan: From the truck on the cover to the innumerable references to traditional culture and custom, the document expresses a profound nostalgia. As someone who worked in the woods, I think a less sentimental look back at the industry’s practices…

Facts tell different story about BNF logging

  A recent article in a couple local daily newspapers describes the first Ravalli County Commissioner meeting held about a natural resource use plan concocted by a few disgruntled Bitterrooters. This plan is to become the foundation of the Commissioners’ efforts to grab power through a discredited, fringe legal theory that misinterprets the term ‘coordination’…

Kubista wrong about wolves

  Keith Kubista’s May 23rd “Featured Letter” is just another effort by a wolf-hating minority to drive the issue in Montana. Kubista claimed ungulate populations are crashing across the state, and that there is a “high incidence of wolf predation on livestock.” He lambasted the FWP wolf proposal for not going far enough, and finally,…

Support for Lone Rock

  My husband Dave and I, Babe Brandon just got done reading the letter that Dan Metully, Stevensville wrote. That was a great letter. We have known Dan for a long time. We are planning on coming out to Montana in early July and get to go to the Three Mile Community BBQ. We spent…

Support for Presswood

  Whether you know her as “Maureen Draper Presswood” or simply as “Mo”, she is running for Ravalli County Clerk of District Court. She is more than just a name and you should know who she is before you vote. You should also know who she is running against. Be informed. I am writing this…
