Support for Mim Mack

  Integrity, dedication, commitment, and a collaborative work ethic – those are the traits I look for and feel are essential to the leadership of our wonderful small town. Gene Mim Mack is my choice for mayor and I ask that you support these qualities and his continued leadership. Loey Knapp Stevensville

Pot calling kettle black?

  A self selected group of Stevensville residents have thrown another handful of mud at the wall hoping some would stick during this election. Like most of their platform it is full of innuendo, inaccurate information and character assassination. This low road to election has taken yet another turn in insinuating the town government is…

Praise for Stevi mayor

  A wise old woman once told me, “Sólo un tonto va en busca de una tormenta en el sol.” Translation? Only a fool goes looking for a rainstorm in sunshine. On the other hand, perception is everything, but it’s not always the reality. Nevertheless, without context, words can lose their meaning, ‘por lo toanto’…

Support for Mayor Mim Mack

  Stevensville registered voters receive their ballots by mail this week. Out of 1000 or so voters only around 500 people will actually cast their ballots in the mayoral election. Mayor Gene Mim Mack’s administration skills benefit not only the town staff but also the town council and all citizens of zip code 59870. As…

Why no to Title X

“Leave your morality at the door!” was the demand given me by some after the I stood by my “no” vote turning down the Federal Grant called Title X for “family planning”. Really, is that what the majority of citizens wants from those elected to lead our governing bodies? No morality? Morality has been the…

Disturbed by Foss statements

    Attention, Suzy Foss: I am disturbed by information posted on your face book page – here is one of the excerpts which confounds me: “The fact that any age child can go to a Title X clinic for not just birth control, but for testing and treatment of sexually transmitted disease and a…

Foss rationale deeply flawed

  Trying to rationalize her vote against Bitterrooters relying on Title X low-income health care (Valley Viewpoint, 10/10/13), Commissioner Foss sets up a flimsy straw man to argue with and then loses the argument. She claims, “Morality has been the heartbeat of this wondrous and unique nation… Those who first stepped upon our shore did…

Commissioners irresponsible

  Thank you for the coverage you provide throughout the year on the important actions of our various local governing bodies. It is appreciated. In this letter I voice just a few thoughts concerning the County Commission’s decision to reject my federal tax dollars for specific services at the Public Health Center. A very significant…

Concern over road department

  As a previous (retired) employee, I have great concern in the direction our road department has taken. The lack of maintenance is causing our road system to deteriorate. The cause of this is what I believe is the direction the crew at the Ravalli County Road Department has been given from the Commissioners and…

Commissioners don’t represent majority

Commissioners reject thousands for Public Health while soliciting millions for Airport Expansion. Let’s see… the Commissioners reject a few thousand federal dollars designated for family planning services for 400 people (mostly poor) while shamelessly seeking millions (estimated $15-$20 million depending on land costs – Engineer’s estimate 2008 FAA Environmental Assessment) of Federal/County dollars to expand…
