Apology pitiful

  The apology offered up by a member or two of the Ravalli County Commission about the mess they created in the treasurer’s office was just about as pitiful as the job they have been doing since they were elected. Suzy Foss and company had the opportunity to appoint Linda Isaacs, a well qualified person,…

Pathetic AND scary

  Tuesday’s apologies by the two Ravalli County Commissioners would be pathetic were it not for the fact they are still making decisions for the county. Commissioner Foss did NOT deliver an apology (the dictionary defines apology as indicating a person’s regret about doing or saying something; an admission of error). Foss accepted no responsibility…

No confidence

  Kudos to the Hamilton City Council on their unanimous vote of “No Confidence” in the commission’s choice of Queen Foss to the planning board. Foss seems to not understand. Really, are you kidding me? You should take the first word of your statement to the paper “honestly” to heart and of course it’s not…

Support for Hawk

  There is no doubt that some of the recent decisions made in Ravalli County government have backfired. We all make mistakes but one redeeming characteristic is we generally recognize and correct them. With Ray Hawk throwing his “hat in the ring” and running for the office of Commissioner for Ravalli County, we have the…

Get on board at healthcare.gov

Joel Olinghouse and Jerry Haslip got the memo. They were wonderfully perfect in giving the textbook Republican opposition response to Obamacare. Their arguments were enthusiastic and entertaining, but predictably lacking in truth, compassion, and financial soundness. We must all thank Joel and Jerry (J&J) for shining the spotlight on present-day Republican family values and morals,…

Friendly valley

  My husband and I moved to Hamilton one month ago and are impressed with the friendliness of people we meet. When I mention that I am new to town, they never fail to say” Welcome to the Valley.” Bitterroot Valley is beautiful and I can see why people are proud of it. Thanks for…

Victor Park memories

  When the Victor Garden Club gave up our much loved Victor Park to the county, a whole bunch of memories came flooding back to me. When I see Gene Buroker, Victor shop owner, he says, “Louise, why don’t you and I do Chief Victor Days – we could do it, I know we could!”…

Believing in Darby

Wow! What a year we had in 2013! Are you ready for 2014? Well, I’m stoked to see what we can accomplish in this new year, and I would like to share a few thoughts. Above the desk in my office is sign that only says “BELIEVE.” That’s it, but it speaks volumes to me…

Support for Star

  I don’t often choose to financially support private enterprise but I am making a notable exception for the Bitterroot Star. Had it not been for the exceptional investigative reporting by Michael Howell, we would still be completely in the dark regarding our county treasurer. With all the crazy things that our county commission has…

Support for Hawk

  This might be the shortest letter I’ve ever written! Ray Hawk will be the best thing to happen to Ravalli County. Thank you, Ray, for caring enough to come out of retirement and run. Your knowledge and experience is exactly what we need. Lilya McAlister Stevensville
