Stevensville adds cross-country

Although their numbers are scant this year, there are only three competitors, the Stevensville cross-country team is enthusiastic and gaining experience with each race they run in.

Stevensville playing tough

Re: no Title X funding revote

  Commissioners Stoltz, Burrows and Foss should have, with one voice, called for a revote on Title X funding for their Ravalli County constituents. Further, the result of that revote should have been for advocacy and acceptance. The commissioners must leave to their individual constituents whether an ideology would keep them from seeking medical attention…

Stand up against commissioners now

  I can’t believe what is happening here. When I first came to the Bitterroot Valley in 1978, I was young and I was broke. Family Planning and Public Health were my medical providers for those start out years. I was able to affordably receive my health care checkups, plan out my family, and then…
