Better insurance with Obamacare

By Marty Essen, Victor After much frustration, my wife and I finally got signed up for Obamacare. My mistake was trying to sign up in October, a few days after the Health Insurance Marketplace opened. All hell broke loose at the time, and essentially our application got frozen. Last week, I deleted our application and…

Blue Devils win Brawley Classic

The annual Glyn Brawley wrestling classic is always the last weekend before the Christmas break. The host team, the Blue Devils, won the 16-team field handily, outscoring Salmon, the second place team by more than 160 points. Corvallis fielded six individual champions. Will Wissenbach took the 106 championship. Chase Connor won at 120, Tyler Olsen…

Wrong project to appeal

  I want to thank Dan Thompson, President of Ravalli County Off-Road Users Association (RCORUA), for responding to a recent letter of mine regarding the 3 Saddle National Forest Project, his ORV organization, and our County Commissioners. Dan’s letter helps the public gain insight into his organization’s positions and priorities, especially with our National Forest…

Misinformation continues

  Once again, the irrepressible Jerry Haslip has given us another load of misinformation (BR Star 12-4). He claims (unnamed) polls show ‘moderate independents’ are ‘jumping ship’ on ObamaCare. According to a recent CNN poll, 53% of those polled think ObamaCare will be a successful program, while less than 33% thought it would fail (and…

Diversionary tactic

  On December 11, Mr. Ivory from the American Lands Council gave a speech in Hamilton to urge us to sell off our public lands in Montana, so we could be more like Illinois or Louisiana, which have very little public land. He gave some interesting but irrelevant historical information on land policies from the…

Expand the right airport

  Recent bits and pieces in media hint that there is some renewed interest by Stevensville aimed at making their airport what it really should be, that is the best airport in the Bitterroot Valley. When North Star Aviation took over as the fixed base operator in Hamilton I really questioned the move because Stevi…
