Scary possibility

  Paul Ryan said something in the Vice-Presidential debate that captured my attention, and activated my worry mechanisms. Ryan is the leader of the crazy Tea Party element of the Republican Party. He stated his beliefs on conception and abortion are his Catholic beliefs. He has introduced several Bills to outlaw all abortions, no exceptions….

Support for Chilcott

I must respond to recent actions by “Big Dave Smith” in his attempt to swing votes his way for a seat on the county commission. His accusations against incumbent Greg Chilcott prove to me Big Dave is either unable to do research or prefers to not present the truth…either of these behaviors is totally inappropriate…

Support for Tester

  Military service teaches us to “have each others’ backs.” This is a sacred duty that continues into civilian life, especially for injured veterans. Tester’s leadership and support for veteran’s issues is outstanding. I’m stressing leadership here. It’s easy for politicians to rattle sabers and mouth platitudes about how much they value service. It’s another…

Support for Hill

  Montana was never meant to be “last place,” but the “Last Best Place.” Here we have one of the wealthiest states in the country in terms of God-given resources, and yet Montanans are some of the lowest wage earners anywhere. It just doesn’t make sense! Why be called the Treasure State when we can…

Support for Burrows

  I have had the privilege of knowing Jeff Burrow for some time now. I contracted him out to do some work for me and found him to be a hard worker, very honest and intelligent. We had a problem on how to feasibly make my project become a reality, but he was able to…

Support for new medical marijuana bill

By Chris Hoffman, Ravalli County Sheriff I have received questions from community members who are confused about Ballot Measure- Initiative Referendum Number 124. This issue relates to the Montana Marijuana Act and the language on the ballot is very confusing. The issue relates to the change in the marijuana laws from the 2011 Legislature, Senate…

Florence takes top seed

The Lady Falcons of Florence had a couple of hiccups but came away with the No. 1 seed heading into the Western B Divisional in Ronan this week. Although they have not dropped a match all season, the usually unflappable Falcons had some minor problems in their game against Loyola and again against St. Ignatius….

Victor, Florence fall in first round playoffs

The first round playoff games were tough on the local teams over the weekend. Florence traveled to Red Lodge while Victor made a cold trip to Chinook up on the High Line. Red Lodge defeated Florence, 55-19, while Victor fell to the Sugarbeeters, 36-24. Red Lodge used a balanced attack from the air and on…

Blue Devils best Lady Broncs

Emotions are usually a little higher when your opponent is your rival. Senior night is always an emotional night too. But when a senior player goes down early in the match, it’s really tough. Such was the case for Hamilton when they took on Corvallis on Thursday. Early in the first game, senior Cara Schultz’s…
