Let’s repeal Murphy’s Law!

Congress is starting up again. I think all of us (Democrat, Republican and Whatever) hope that they can manage to do something constructive. So far their performance reminds one of a circular firing squad. Maybe they need to try making a dry run. Yes, a dry run! After all, famous actors, generals, teachers, doctors and…

Notice to local employers

To employers of Ravalli County: It is with heavy hearts that we share with you the news that effective October 31, 2017, the Bitterroot Job Service (now called Job Service Hamilton) will be closing its doors.   This decision was strictly budgetary and does not reflect in any way the tremendous work and commitment to…

Telling the Montana story to 1.4 billion people

After a 14-year embargo, the Chinese market is finally open to American beef and Montana ranchers have an immense opportunity. However, they need to play their cards, or we should say mah jong tiles, just right. The road to American business success in China is littered with road kill. Poor planning, unreal expectations due to…

Lolo Peak Fire and more

So far this year about 800,000 acres, or 1,250 square miles, of Montana have burned. About 47% of that burn is on BLM Land. About 25% of that burn, or some 312 plus square miles, or 200,000 acres, is on USFS Land. Evidently it’s costing about $1,000.00 an acre to deal with actively burning forests…

Thanks from Water Forum

I am incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support we received for the Bitterroot River Clean Up. The Water Forum has proudly hosted this event for six years, and each year we get a huge number of volunteers joining a Valley wide effort to honor the river we all rely on and scour the Bitterroot…

Response to socialist Tucker

So Ms. Tucker believes thousands of Montanans are without health care if government does not give it to them “free.” What a load of feces! Anyone can go to any doctor and pay for whatever services he requires. This is America. We are free to pay our own way and did so for many years…

Response to Corn

To start, you need glasses, there was no white sheet hanging anywhere on President Trump. The President said both sides were to blame and I agree with him. Neo-Nazis and KKK are both hate groups, but the First Amendment gives them both the right to freedom of speech and it does not matter what your…

Party parrots

Could there be anything more “corny” or banal than reading divisive letters to the editor from party hacks? They must receive Daily talking points from their losing party leaders to parrot. Not an original thought among them.   Dale LaScala Corvallis

Alternate reality

After reading several leftist letters to the Bitterroot Star editor, I must respond. One called Trump a racist, another suggested that “don’t just accept the rhetoric as gospel,” another doubted that Trump will ever accomplish anything of value, and another imagined how well off we would be if we ever had a Muslim president.  …

Kill us all and be done with it

The Trump Administration is calling the (more or less) permanent protection of public lands belonging to the people of the United States a land grab. It would seem to be more appropriate to call taking public land, which is already our (the people’s) land, and giving it to private companies to drill, frack, clear cut…
