God and the Forest Service

  I heartily agree with Grace Wilson’s letter last week that God is the one who put out the fires. We prayed and He answered! We should all be thankful for the fresh air we now breathe but take so much for granted. The general public needs to know, however, that the USFS policy on…

Doomed to repeat?

  Dr. Theodore Dalrymple’s (a pen name) analysis of the chaos going on in Great Britain goes like this: “In modern welfare states, the struggle for subsistence has been abolished. There are large numbers of people who are devoid of either ambition or interest. They thus have nothing to fear, and nothing to hope.” He…

Praise for Trump

  President Trump is doing a great job in Washington and he is trying to untangle the evil things Obama did during his years there. To start, insurance is NOT the job of the government, it is not in the Constitution. Insurance is not a right or something you deserve. There are many hospitals and…

America – change it or lose it

  Having read Marty Essen’s letter and the “rebuttal” by Mike Miller, I find the latter to be completely without substance or solutions. Miller seems to dribble personal insults and blame on the former administration without any substantiation. What is a “liberal elite” and a “liberal state?” But while we’re at it, let’s blame Obama…

Tired of fire excuses

  Hiking up Sweeney Creek a couple of years ago I was intrigued by a grove of trees between Peterson Lake and Duffy Lake. I believe it was made up of White Fir or commonly called “Piss” fir by loggers for various reasons. This grove was fascinating because when the trail entered it it became…

No one is deplorable

    No one is deplorable. No one deserves our contempt. We have all gotten to where and what we are by doing our best with what we had in the situations we found ourselves in. Even Donald Trump, though I can neither like nor respect him. So let’s leave the contempt and the name-calling…

Transformation by tweet

  Through his signature tweeting campaign, Donald Trump began to transform the footballers’ protests (taking a knee) into a misrepresentation of the underlying motivation for their peaceful displays of dissent, and in classic ‘strawman’ fashion, then argue against the misrepresentation he had (disingenuously) fashioned. Specifically, he transformed what originated as an expression of peaceful protest…

Stop Trump now!

  Watching the massacre that just took place in Las Vegas, Nevada has left me wondering how many more will we be witness to? Looking back on previous acts of terrorism that have been committed here in the United States, the biggest percent of them have been carried out by our own white homegrown terrorists….

Support White Ribbon Campaign

    October 22 to 28 is White Ribbon Week in Ravalli County. The White Ribbon Campaign is a community-wide event designed to raise awareness about domestic violence.   Please show your support for ending domestic violence by wearing a white ribbon during our week-long event. Ribbons are available at SAFE, SAFE Thrift Store, and…

Build Montana’s workforce, build Montana’s future

  As communities across the nation work to recover from recent natural disasters, many are discovering that while they have plenty of rebuilding to do, they lack the manpower to do it. This circumstance comes as no surprise to the Montana Contractors’ Association (MCA), which has been considering the nationwide shortage of skilled trade workers…
