School district and special elections in progress

Voters in school districts that are having trustee or levy elections have until May 2 to return their ballots by mail, or in person, to the Election Department at the Courthouse in Hamilton. This is also true for special elections for Florence Rural Fire District – Rebecca Ames or Robert D. DeWitt (vote for one);…

Wading in on the West Fork

By Michael Howell Mike Hansen remembers fishing on the upper West Fork of the Bitterroot River, just below the dam, when he was a kid in the late 1950s. “I fished all day and never saw a person,” said Hansen. Hansen’s roots here go back seven generations. His grandfather was a cross-cut sawyer. Several of…

Trump Jr. stumps for Gianforte in Hamilton

By Michael Howell Republican candidate for Montana’s at-large seat in the U.S. Congress, Greg Gianforte got a little help from his friend and business partner Senator Steve Daines and the President of the United States’ son Donald Trump Jr. at his fundraising efforts in Hamilton last Friday. “The nation is watching us,” said Daines, about…

Support for Gianforte

I write in support of Greg Gianforte for Congress. I think he is the best qualified candidate. We need competent representatives. He has travelled many miles on the road listening to Montanans. He took the time and money to do this. He is a successful businessman and mentors those who want to start businesses with…

Support for Quist

It’s refreshing to see someone that wants to represent the people of Montana and not just “Montana” and out of state interests. He will work for all Montanans. He doesn’t want to drain a swamp, he wants to clean it up so it’s fit to live and work in. He doesn’t want to fight anyone…

A most perfect solution

  Human nature is closing in on some certain doings of Mr. Frump and associates in 2016. Closing in like four teeth of a huge vise chuck grip. Squeezing in. Clamping down on doings of Frump and associates in 2016. Subpoenas and indictments may be in the works. However, Mr. Jaded Kushion and Dr. Zen…

Clean up your own mess

To the careless and disrespectful persons who left a campfire burning and too much trash at the site above the Gold Creek Campground on Burnt Fork Road on April 16th – Shame on all of you! Wake up, idiots! The campfire that was left burning that day was large and the pit that was dug…

Courageous Quist

Respectfully. The biggest issue of the Montana special election is the Montana mail-in ballot. Risking defeat by doing the right thing is the very definition of courageous. And in this case what’s right was profoundly clear, unequivocal and laid squarely in the hands of one Republican candidate, Greg Gianforte – a failure in this test…

Leadership

This newspaper is very generous in publishing virtually all the opinion letters it receives, but I question the policy of sometimes changing the titles submitted by the letter writers. Especially during the run-up to an election, doesn’t it pre-empt the reader’s own ability to read and think to label letters “Support for Gianforte” or “Support…

Blue Devil tennis going strong

The Corvallis Blue Devils have good numbers out for the season this year, according to boys’ coach Chris Maul-Smith and Mike Fehr, the girls’ coach. There are over 20 boys out for the season and 26 girls playing this year. Maul-Smith said he has a lot of freshmen playing and a lot of seniors, some…
