Support for Boulanger

  Pat Connell is trying to fool you into believing he voted with the majority of Republicans in the House last session. He is using a chart that completely distorts the facts. He fails to say that the so-called “majority” of Republicans included the ones who voted like Democrats. The chart is meaningless. The simple…

The Glyphosate levels were 760 to 1600 times higher in the U.S. human milk than Europe allows in drinking water. Many of the mothers tested ate as much organic food as possible.

Democrats destroy jobs

  The letter you published from Van P. Keele of Hamilton was so full of BS that it seems like the only way I could get it off of me is to write a reply. He wrote how the Democrats are the ones that create jobs. I remember the day that, even in this valley,…

Here comes Scammy, oops , I did mean Stamey. That’s right, gotta hire Stamey, She has no experience, no learning, no training! Why not? They all say, though it…

Commissioner candidate bows out

  This is an open letter of heartfelt gratitude for all of the good folks of Ravalli County who have supported my bid for county commissioner. After deeper consideration and an honest assessment of my personal capacity, I have withdrawn my candidacy. The work and commitment of commissioner and the enormity of the redress that…

Week of the Young Child, April 6–12, is a time to recognize the needs of young children and thank the adults involved in their education and care. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and other adults play important roles in the lives of young…

Keele’s points are hogwash

  I look forward to picking up each new edition of the Bitterroot Star so I can read the weekly edition of the political world according to Van P. Keele. Mr. Keele has a lot to say, this week 12 long paragraphs covering the majority of the editorial and comment page. He tells it like…
