Support for Trump

Both major party presidential candidates have serious electability issues! Both have large egos. First – Trump has been accused of having temperamental issues, as well as negative female sexuality issues. Those issues have been flaunted by the main stream media! However, Trump’s electability issues pale in comparison to Hillary’s demonstrated lying/trustworthiness “pay for play” electability…

Think long and hard

November 8 could be the most important election in the lives of our descendants. They are the ones who will be most affected by our massive debt and leaders who either are becoming more and more powerful or who want to put the power back into the hands of the people. Think long and hard…

Making our public lands safer

Montana, as all of us who live here know, is a remarkable state, blessed with extraordinary natural resources. Glacier National Park is a jewel. Montana’s water network feeds the continent’s major river basins. And the state hosts the greatest diversity of mammals. But what tarnishes our public lands is the constant risk of walking into…

Sportsmen, beware!

This year’s elections could have a huge and lasting impact on those of us that enjoy the benefits of our state’s river systems, including our beloved Bitterroot. Running for Supreme Court Justice, Kristen Juras is a foe to our state’s Stream Access Law, even going so far in her law review article to advocate for…

Support for I-177

This election, more than any other, will tell the world what kind of people live in Montana. Should Donald Trump win our state, history will forever see us as a people who looked the other way and voted for an unstable man who openly glamorized bigotry, sexual assault, paranoia, torture, and the degradation of women….

Against I-177

Who is behind the anti-trapping Initiative, I-177? This threat to Montana’s hunting and trapping heritage is being driven by out-of-state animal rights activist groups such as PETA, ASPCA, Humane Society, etc. Out-of-state environmental organizations like Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife, etc. are also pushing for passage of I-177. What is alarming is that these same…

Response to Wood

I am writing in response to Floyd Wood’s letter of October 26. Floyd Wood stated that lethal conibear traps are used only in water, thus no one need be concerned about their dog getting into one.  Perhaps that’s where they’re intended to be, but that’s not the reality. I recall a woman in the Flathead…

Veterans Day invitation

I would like to remind readers that November 11, 2016, is Veterans Day.  This is the annual opportunity for members of our society to thank those who have served in our military services. As you will see mentioned in this issue, there are a number of activities being held in and around Stevensville. You should…

Don’t vote for Myers

In regards to Robert Myers’ candidacy for District Judge: Before casting your ballot, please remember that Myers is the legal representative/lawsuit creator for Ravalli County’s ex-appointed treasurer Valerie Addis/Scott/Stamey. In my opinion, a vote for Myers is a vote for Stamey. Please, no more of this group. Rick Borden Hamilton

Support for Chilcott

I am asking you to please join me in supporting Greg Chilcott in his bid for re-election as County Commissioner from District 2.  Greg understands Ravalli County and has a long family history here in the Bitterroot Valley.  He has served on the Board of Ravalli County Commissioners since 2003 and the current board continually…
