Cemetery in deplorable shape

This is in regards to the condition of the Stevensville Riverside Cemetery. Shame on whoever put Roundup around every headstone. That was pure laziness. Between the gopher holes and the burnt grass, Riverside looked worse than any other cemetery in the valley from Darby to Lone Rock. Also, there are sinking headstones, not to mention…

Support for Bullock

Is running your air conditioner this summer too expensive? Is your electric bill cutting into your business profits? Ask former Congressman Hill (1997-2001) how he felt about his Republican friends deregulating energy in Montana back in the good old days when we had cheap, regulated electricity prices.

Montanans can’t afford to elect Hill

In response to an article from earlier this week (“Hill campaigns in Bitterroot”), I believe that Montanans can’t afford to elect Congressman Rick Hill as the next Governor of our state. Hill states that he has a three-pronged political agenda – “improving the business climate in the state, revising our budgeting priorities, and reforming the…

In Germany during the early 20’s, because of inflation, the saying, “It took a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread” was coined.

New atmosphere at Stevi Council meeting

By Dan DePauw, Stevensville After a lengthy absence from attending Stevensville Town Council meetings, I was pleasantly surprised when I attended the July 12th meeting that it was no longer a “he said, she said, finger-pointing, pin the tail on the donkey” atmosphere. Not only was the meeting literate and articulate, it was… cordial. The…

Fenceposts A rite of summer . . . then, and now

My dad, Paul Jaques with my brothers, Dean and Tom, bringing in a load of hay on our place west of Victor. This was taken in the mid 1950’s.

  It’s hot. Probably the only people who are really excited about this hot dry weather right now are the farmers and ranchers who are putting up hay. This rite of summer has to be done whether the weather is ideal or not. And Mother Nature can be fickle. You never know when a downpour…
