Our right to express our faith

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

When reading this letter you become aware…

You reap what you sow

  What a shame! I commend Rachel Bartlett for her letter encouraging people to write letters expressing their opposition to the Legacy “Ranch” housing development. Looking back on my eight years of fighting the permitting of Stansbury Mining Company’s proposal for an open-pit vermiculite mine on ABM Ridge east of Hamilton, I can say without…

Van P. Keele’s blathering in the Bitterroot Star newspaper on 21 May 2013 about sequestration requires a response, for the following reasons: 1.

Bucs win Rasmussen Classic

The Bitterroot Bucs weren’t the best hosts of the Rasmussen Classic tournament held over the weekend in Florence. Sure, they were gracious and ran a nice tournament with everything going very well.
