Support for Ravalli County Museum mill levy

During the spring and summer I am often at the Ravalli County Museum booth at the Farmers Market. It is enjoyable visiting with people as they stop by. Asking them if they have ever been in our fabulous museum results in some interesting answers: “Oh, yes, it is wonderful!” “Yes, indeed, many times,” “My grandchildren…

Use care when voting

Please don’t get me wrong. I think every citizen has the right to run for any office they want. But before you make that choice I feel you should attend board or organizational meetings to know what they do and how they operate so you are informed before making the choice to run. It appears…

Common sense

For the past two and a half years I have been trying to stay informed as to all the published facts in reference to the Three Mile sub district issue. To say the least, in my opinion, it has been and still is nothing short of a big mess. BRID and Citizens for Fair Water…

Good news

The good news is that the Closed Primary lawsuit, initiated by the Ravalli County Republican Central Committee, appears to be dead, as was sadly announced at a recent meeting of that group. That frivolous lawsuit was precipitated by the loss of the SD43 Montana Senate seat by the favorite son of the Committee, to a…

The other woman running for PSC

Whether Republican, Independent or Democrat, your vote for PSC Commissioner for District 4 may have a multiplied effect, if there’s a good sized vote for Cooper for PSC Commissioner of District 3! Perhaps you too thought the Montana Public Service Commission (PSC) was baffled by the Mountain Water case! And observed that two of the…

Re: BRID issue

Throughout the past 30 years, Three Mile Irrigators have effectively and efficiently satisfied a very large debt and maintained a very efficient Gravity Irrigation System through tax assessment. The group Citizens for Fair Water (CFW) has filed a lawsuit in an effort to steal the Three Mile Gravity System from the 400 irrigators who built…

For the good of the community

After enduring approximately three years of back and forth, verbal and written arguments, in an attempt to convince me and the other water users who is right, BRID and Citizens for Fair Water are both at the point of being “Bad Guys.” Both Citizens for Fair Water and Bitter Root Irrigation District (BRID) need to…

Logging

Well, the logging between Lost Horse and Roaring Lion Creek is in the works, 2,300 acres, besides some logging in Coyote Coulee area. Julie King said the objection period ends April 16, 2016. There have been 80 comments come in so far. It is sad to say these comments do not mean much after the…

Why would we want them here?

Responding to Mr. Russ. You don’t know your Constitution! Nowhere does it say religion has to be respected! It says Congress can’t make laws establishing a religion and can’t prohibit people from exercising their religion. A true Muslim isn’t going to become a citizen of the U.S. as they must recite and swear an oath…

Brokered conventions nothing new

“Brokered” political conventions are neither good nor bad.  Sometimes they are simply necessary. That could be the case with the Republicans this year, as it was in 1952 and 1976. The Montana delegation were “bitter-enders” at the contested 1952 Republican national convention. The contest for the Republican presidential nomination was between Ohio Senator Robert Taft,…
