Commissioners stand by rejection of Title X funds

    By Michael Howell The Ravalli County Commissioners, for the third time this month, have refused to accept Title X funding for the coming fiscal year, basically rejecting about $50,000 in federal funds to operate a clinic for mostly low income women out of the County Public Health Office.

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…

Commissioners take pro disease, pro abortion stance by rejecting funds

Local elections affect us all

By Linda McCulloch, Montana Secretary of State I remember the first time I voted an official ballot. It was 1973, just two years after 18-year-olds were granted the right to vote. I remember walking into the voting booth and closing the curtain behind me. As I started to mark my ballot, I realized how important…
