Unconvinced on ‘anthropogenic’ climate change

  I have written a couple of “letters to the editor” which have been taken as a blanket rejection of what some believe is the top priority facing the world today – climate change. Make no mistake, even a political conservative like me knows the climate has changed and will continue to change but that…

Where is the pride?

  I googled the Bitterroot Chamber of Commerce and the first thing I read was, “Welcome to our Beautiful Bitterroot Valley!” This was closely followed by “unsurpassed beauty.” Obviously, whomever wrote that has a completely different perspective of beauty than I do. Any realtor will tell you the importance of curbside appeal. The entrance to…

The complimentary thunderbolt about Painted Rocks Lake that Check Stranahan shot my way in his column was a surprise! Thanks for the kind words, Chuck. It is true that I as President of Bitterroot TU in the 1980’s expended a lot of time on securing the leased water for the sportsmen and the irrigators –…

Stoltz Land and Lumber Co., a family owned sawmill that has been operating in northwest Montana for more than 100 years, traveled to Washington, D.C., to share with the powers that be what it’s like to run a mill in Montana. At the…

Keele has gone over the brink

  I don’t know about how Gene Williams might react to all of those silly recent claims by Van P. Keele in the Bitterroot Star, but here is my reaction. It is obvious that someone tipped Van P. over the brink. He lost his “cool” and it obviously shows! His normal lengthy, bloviating, rambling style…
