Lady Broncs make history

  Hamilton will have to make room for a new trophy in the case, the Southwest A Divisional Championship trophy. There’s not another one like it in the case. “This is the first divisional in school history,” said Hamilton coach Mark Albert. “That was our goal.” Albert said that not making the trip to state…

Stevensville finishes second

The reigning state champions will have a chance to defend their championship this weekend in Great Falls at the Class A state tournament. Stevensville will return as the No. 2 seed from the Southwest A conference, after falling to Dillon, 55-34, in the championship game in Butte on Saturday. The Yellowjackets will play Laurel, the…

Florence Boys move on

The Florence Falcons will advance to the state Class B tournament in to weeks in Bozeman in two weeks as the No. 2 seed from the Western B division. Florence has advanced to the state tournament for the last five years. The Falcons held Bigfork, who hasn’t lost a game this year, to only two…

Corvallis boys finish strong

Corvallis and Hamilton met in the opening game of the tournament and the first-game jitters were evident in both teams as they combined for only eight points in the first quarter. “I thought both teams really struggled to get their legs in that first quarter,” said Corvallis coach Joe Jessop.

Public art should be cherished

I called Rocky Mountain Bank, mistakenly thinking they had something to do with the hot dog cart in front of Jay Laber’s great sculpture entitled, “Two Left Feet Dancing Free.” They said that the town had issued a license for the hot dog stand so I have sent a letter to the town council. Jay…

Hooray for them! Could this be a harbinger of good things to come? I know Commissioner Foss is…

Citizen militia essential

  This is in response to “Watching our ideologues and ourselves, fail” and his comment about citizens and the sheriff. You refer to them as radical believers, but the article you refer to says they were “extremely concerned citizens looking for assurances that the county commissioners and sheriff are willing to execute their legal obligations.”…

Senate replacement should be elected

  With the departure of Senator Baucus from the Senate, Montana’s longest serving statewide elected official is Ed Smith. Never heard of him?  Well, we have elected him Clerk of our Supreme Court five times. Ed served as Chief Clerk of the Montana House of Representatives three legislative sessions and was then appointed by the…

Paying dearly for lapse in vigilance

  Remember Celebrating Conservatism? That good old Johnny Reb revivalist show that camped at our publicly-funded fairground for a couple years after the 2008 elections? You must remember them, especially if you want to understand how this county got itself into this current pickle we are all paying dearly for. A reminder then. Celebrating Conservatism…

Re: Obamacare

  Van P. Keele spent an enormous amount of time and effort writing the Bitterroot Star editor to show support for Obamacare. Paragraph after paragraph after paragraph after paragraph of J&J this and J&J that, Republicans this and Republicans that, etc., etc., yadda, yadda, yadda. I had to take a nap in the middle and…
