Insight into Treasurer’s Office problems

By Rick Borden, Hamilton Lost amidst the justified uproar surrounding the Ravalli County Commissioner’s Title X decision and the Medicine Tree controversy is the injustice of the appointment of the new county treasurer. The Ravalli County Commission is getting exactly what they deserve. The taxpayers of Ravalli County are not. Remember the November 2010 election?…

Support for Main Street program

  About 14 years ago our nation started on a downward spiral of intolerance. Our country has become a divisive culture of us against them. This mindset was in evidence during the town council meeting on December 12, 2013 when a small survey was presented to the council. I was not present at the meeting…

For commissioners’ edification

  To further the educational process of elected officials in Ravalli County: “Through sameness of language is produced sameness of sentiment and thought; customs and habits are molded and assimilated in the same way, and thus in process of time the differences producing trouble would have been gradually obliterated.” – Indian Peace Commission, 1868 Peter…

Tired of anti-Christian bigotry

  I am tired of hearing about bigoted people who do not want Christians to practice their religion. You have the right not to believe in anything or what ever you want, but remember we Christians also have the right to practice our religion and also Christmas. We have the right to pray in public,…

Real conversation required

Please know, I am not taking sides here! John Davenport, why are you bullying Commissioner Foss? You and others accuse her of ranting, but your article is full of accusing rants of cruelty. You and others accuse her and the other commissioners of all kinds of craziness, but your articles are filled with name-calling, exaggerations,…

The Alta Pine

  Well, the sign is back up at the historic old pine tree just short of Alta on the west fork of the Bitterroot. It’s been several years of a battle with the Forest Service to keep the sign up. A year and a half ago, the sign was taken down and a hearing was…

Leave our public lands alone

  The more I read about the proposed Ravalli County takeover of the Montana public lands, the more I am amazed and angered. These lands are not for Ravalli County or the State of Montana to have any more to say about than any other state or county. They are public lands and owned by…

Great coverage

  I want to thank you for your great coverage of the county commissioners.  Keep them in the spotlight! The commissioners hate the light of day, and as long as no one is paying attention, they will continue with their outrageous behavior. All five of these commissioners are embarrassments to Ravalli County and the fact…

Helping each other

As an advertiser in the Bitterroot Star, I want all the readers to know how much the staff at this local newspaper cares about the community and about their customers. They actually shop at their advertisers’ stores! Their goal is not just selling ads. It’s also about helping each other by personally supporting the local…

Response to anonymous accuser

  To “anonymous”, whoever you are… The first comment I will make is that I have made it a practice for over 50 years never to give credence to a letter that does not sign a name. If a person doesn’t have the stamina to claim authorship, then what he thinks he has to say…
