Thanks for nothing!

In 1986, President Ronald Reagan ripped the solar panels off the White House, setting the stage for 26-plus years of Republicans obstructing progress on climate change. Today, the Bitterroot Valley set yet another record for consecutive days without rain. While no single event is a confirmation of climate change, when added to the huge number…

Support for Burrows

  The Ravalli County Park Board is technically bankrupt! The Park Board owes about $270,000 with $200,000 in the bank. With an income of about $3,000/year and expenses of approximately $30,000/year. How did they get here? In 2008 with the real estate boom well in progress, they decided to purchase a piece of property on…

What’s with this Ravalli County Natural Resources Policy?

  There is rising interest in the Ravalli County Commissioners’ Natural Resources Policy (NRP).  It’s been mentioned at candidate forums and has received some press coverage.  Its originators have even requested that all candidates running for county office “pledge” to support the “NRP” even though it is still in draft form and has yet to…

Support for Metully

  The same community meetings in the spring of 2011 that brought up the need for a new gymnasium at Lone Rock School brought up the need for a Three Mile senior group. Working with the Ravalli County Council on Aging and the Three Mile Fire Department, school board member Dan Metully started a senior…

Support for Burrows

I am writing to voice my support for Jeff Burrows in the upcoming election for Ravalli County Commissioner. I have known Jeff for many years, and I know him to be a man of impeccable honesty and great competence. I cannot think of a better person to be entrusted with the responsibilities of being a…

Support for Metully

  Back in 1997, then State Senator Fred Thomas carried the electricity deregulation bill through the Montana legislature. After it went into effect, electricity prices skyrocketed, and Montana workers started losing jobs as industries shut down due to unaffordable electricity. Thomas insisted that deregulation was good for us, and when over 300 miners in Butte…

Military believes in climate change

I think we can all agree that our US military is no liberal establishment. You could say they’re conservative in more ways than one. They’re also not dumb. They look at the numbers, probabilities, risks/rewards — and base their tactics and strategies upon them. So it’s not surprising that when given a 97% probability that…

Support for Ormiston

  It is fitting that prevalence of brachygnathia superior in the photo of two elk in the Outdoors Section in the Missoulian on Thursday, October 11, 2012, closely corresponds to the prevalence we found on hunter-killed male elk examined for our 2011 study. (The key words on Google if you want to read our study…

Support for Ormiston

  I have recently noticed several large signs that say “Vote …”and specify one party. This idea is the least democratic thing I have seen in some time. No one party has a lock on the best candidates for all elected positions. And, indeed, if we are to arrive at the best decisions for our…

Election of no return

Only Republicans can keep this from being the “Election of No Return” because: One more Obama judge would flip the Supreme Court left making the Constitution no barrier to whatever radical Liberals desire. When (not if) California goes bankrupt, an Obama bailout would sink America along with it. Rescue of the Government Motors electric car,…
