Your vote matters more than ever

“I don’t vote. My vote doesn’t matter, so why should I bother?” There’s never been a time in our history where that statement has been so wrong. Today, your vote matters more than ever before, especially on state and local levels. We face an onslaught of what I can only describe as perversions of governance…

Starving sheep show signs of abnormalities

I noticed sheep with brachygnathia superior (underbite) in the photos of animals that were confiscated last week in the Hamilton area. Thank you to the Humane Society and kind people who are fostering the undernourished animals. Seeing the sheep with underbite reminded me to write to repeat that newborn animals with underdeveloped facial bones can…

Hot dog stand enhances corner

This letter is in response to the guest comment written by Celia Grohmann of Missoula, regarding a sculpture piece and the hot dog stand in the center of Stevensville. Let me start by stating, that I too believe that art should be cherished. However, I could not disagree more with Ms. Grohmann’s opinion about the…

Grantsdale school getting religion?

Long-time Bitterroot residents know the sites of many former schools which have been converted to other uses or disappeared completely. My heart rejoiced at the Hamilton Christian Academy’s attempts to give the newly abandoned Grantsdale Public School a reprieve from a similar fate by acquiring it for its own non-denominational educational programs. My kids are…

Questions about dam purchase

  As a customer of NorthWestern Energy, I have paid rather close attention to the proposed purchase by NorthWestern Energy of dams owned by Pennsylvania Power and Light. This proposed sale/purchase between them is subject to review by the Montana Public Service Commission. I have questions concerning this transaction and do not believe its approval…

CSKT Water Compact – we must get it right

  I am seeing letters, opinions and discussions going back and forth on the potential impacts of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Water Compact. One of the latest letters implied that although the current agreement may not be acceptable to all and some may be unhappy, the compact may be acceptable enough. This…

We’re being lied to about Obamacare

  We are all being lied to by various radio ads, sound bites and talk show hosts that assume and tell us we all must sign up for Obamacare! The US Code clearly states, from Title 42 – The Public Health and Welfare, Chapter 157 – Qualify, affordable health aare for all Americans, Subchapter VI…

Congrats to KECI

Congratulations to the reporters and staff of KECI television for their Sunday night 30 minute segment entitled, Scandal in Ravalli County, dealing with the ongoing County Treasurer debacle. Excellent in depth research and honest reporting of a situation that has consumed the Bitterroot and made the county a laughing stock throughout the state. Yet there…

There but for the grace of God go I

  Celia, your comments and remarks were just slightly overstated and a bit over-the-top. No pun intended, but don’t you think you were putting just a little bit of extra mustard on this particular hotdog of yours? Degradation, and disparagingly denigrating one, is not how you buy your way into another’s good graces, i.e., it’s…

Hiring process

  It seems to me that the election process is flawed. We are hiring these people to serve all the people within the designated political boundaries of their respective districts. In all my years of voting for candidates for office I have never received a complete truthful resume from any candidate. All I have ever…
