Mill Creek Canyon travesty

  My wife and I love living in the Bitterroot. Back in 1996 we were at the north end of a 3000 mile, self-contained mountain bike trip along the Continental Divide, and had seen oodles of beautiful country. But from the moment we dropped down from Gibbons Pass into Sula, laid our eyes upon the…

VA and agencies are top heavy

  So much is being expressed regarding VA clinics, and much of it is well documented. Many veterans could add our own frustrations. However, I suggest that the issue is much larger than poor care at the veterans’ level. It is an example of our top heavy government programs that have many levels of bureaucratic…

Unfair tactics

  Montana Trappers Association members such as Jason Maxwell, VP, resort to all kinds of underhanded ploys to continue their indiscriminate cruel irresponsible recreation on our public lands. Witnessed by many Montanans, trappers have intimidated and harassed our signature gatherers for I-169 and interfered with the First Amendment and voters’ right to sign the ballot…

Pray for repeal

  The VA scandal demonstrates the quality of government provided health care for American war veterans. Can anyone project how effective government provided Obamacare will be for Americans? Responsible Americans likely would predict – what you see is what you will get! Let us pray that when Americans go to voting booths in Novembers 2014…

Stand against abortion

However, I wish to propose to her a different opinion, a different set of options and results. Ms. Barcroft indicated that…

Support Relay for Life

  Like you, I know too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. That’s why I’ve joined the American Cancer Society to help finish the fight by participating in my community Relay For Life event. This will be my eighth year relaying. I am walking in memory of my grandfather, Richard Poirier, who…

Thanks from Water Forum

  As the school year draws to a close, Bitter Root Water Forum would like to thank our partners and supporters for a successful spring of youth education. Water is such a precious resource in our Valley and BRWF sees it as a vital task to educate youth to be future stewards of our natural…

Truth about Left

  I had been dwelling upon this subject for several days prior to the primary elections, so the outcome of said vote is not relevant to this, but indeed is a reflection of the sickness that dwells among us. It came to my attention a couple of weeks ago that my personal concerns were indeed…

After the primaries

  Now that the primaries are over, it is a good time to take the temperature of the political climate in Montana. And wherever politicians in this state might stand on the issues of water and weather, they would all probably agree that, when it comes to politics, our state is going to get a…
