Recycle responsibly

Many of you are undoubtedly glad to have a collection site in Stevi for recyclables. Ravalli County Recycling has contracted with the Town of Stevensville to provide this service. The collection dumpster is not a garbage can! The signs clearly state which products go where. You are asked to remove all caps/lids and rinse food…

Praise for Stevi mayor

At the Thursday, July 9th meeting of Stevensville Town Council, Mayor Gene Mim Mack disclosed that the Stevensville Bike Camp Committee had accepted a generous offer to locate the Bike Camp at the Stevensville Hotel. Even though the Mayor stated the improvements necessary would cost several thousand dollars, he and his wife were willing to…

Let’s recycle right in Stevensville

Residents of Stevensville, come on over to the newly opened recycling drop-off next to the Burnt Fork Market! Already, aluminum cans and #1 plastic bottles are coming in fast. So is corrugated cardboard. Remember to remove bottle caps and lids; they are trash, not recyclable. And flatten everything that you can, but especially cardboard, milk…

Response to Fahnestock-Thomas

I’m referencing “One Solution to Societal Problems.” Dylann Roof acted alone, just because he hated doesn’t mean everyone hates. What about the Muslim that slit the throat of a white woman, is that not racism, yet no one calls it that, especially our government, which is strangely silent on that subject. You don’t know your…

Zinke’s forest reform common sense solution

In this age of suburban sprawl, it is refreshing to see that Montana is different than the rest of the country: the last best place. As a certified forester myself, I have seen the devastating effect of decades of bad forest policy coming from Congress. Often, what Washington touches quickly becomes a bureaucratic mess, and…

Heartbroken over theft

It will be four years July 19th that my mom passed away from cancer. I know this is silly but one of the things I received of my mom’s was her plastic solar hummingbirds. I would often sit on my front step and watch them change colors and think of my mom. She had them…

Where’s the parking?

I was driving north on S. 9th St. and passed part of River Park, the football field, and Westview School on the west side of the street and houses on the east side. I wondered where the students and staff will park when school and college start. There are only about two areas that I…

About bicyclists

There has been a lot of controversy about the bike camp and what kind of people it will bring to our town. Cross country bikers are upstanding citizens. Our code is to be polite at all costs and leave things nicer and cleaner than we found them. We go to bed early and get up…

Bad news

What an insult to the majority of folk in the Bitterroot, with your in-the-face secular progressive lesbian marriage, and the mayor of Stevi doing it. If I had a business ad in your paper, I would pull it. I was thinking of maybe in the future, but no way, now. I know several business owners…

Thanks to Florence community

The Florence Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank the entire Florence community for making this July 4th holiday a safe and fire free event. No fires or injuries from fireworks were reported in the Florence Fire District. The Florence Fire Department held their ninth annual community potluck dinner and fireworks show. The start of…
