New Congressional health care plan – a devastating blow to Montana’s public schools & students

By Kirk Miller, Executive Director, School Administrators of Montana   Today, as every day, teachers called the names of more than 140,000 students, as they took attendance in Montana’s 821 public schools. For the thousands of children who file into our classrooms, school is more than a place to learn. In-school programs and practices ensure…

Letters to the Editor

Support for Quist

It’s refreshing to see someone that wants to represent the people of Montana and not just “Montana” and out of state interests. He will work for all Montanans. He doesn’t want to drain a swamp, he wants to clean it up so it’s fit to live and work in. He doesn’t want to fight anyone…

A most perfect solution

  Human nature is closing in on some certain doings of Mr. Frump and associates in 2016. Closing in like four teeth of a huge vise chuck grip. Squeezing in. Clamping down on doings of Frump and associates in 2016. Subpoenas and indictments may be in the works. However, Mr. Jaded Kushion and Dr. Zen…

Clean up your own mess

To the careless and disrespectful persons who left a campfire burning and too much trash at the site above the Gold Creek Campground on Burnt Fork Road on April 16th – Shame on all of you! Wake up, idiots! The campfire that was left burning that day was large and the pit that was dug…

Courageous Quist

Respectfully. The biggest issue of the Montana special election is the Montana mail-in ballot. Risking defeat by doing the right thing is the very definition of courageous. And in this case what’s right was profoundly clear, unequivocal and laid squarely in the hands of one Republican candidate, Greg Gianforte – a failure in this test…

Leadership

This newspaper is very generous in publishing virtually all the opinion letters it receives, but I question the policy of sometimes changing the titles submitted by the letter writers. Especially during the run-up to an election, doesn’t it pre-empt the reader’s own ability to read and think to label letters “Support for Gianforte” or “Support…

Re: Three Mile Community/Senior Center

To the Three Mile (Lone Rock) Community, We are actively trying to raise funds to build our community building at the Ambrose Park without adding additional taxes to our already tax poor community. We have two fund raisers this summer. The first is a yard sale on June 24th during the 50-Mile Yard Sale event….

Knowledge required for sound investing

Who do you seek for advice when you have money to invest? Do you call up the local farmer, a teacher and a couple of lawyers? Most people use professionals who know markets and can give good advice on trends. I carried Representative Court’s (D-Billings) House Bill 533 on the floor of the Senate last…

Happy with Trump

The electoral vote serves the same purpose today as it did when our forefathers designed it. They had the wisdom to see that the sparse population spreading across vast territory away from the center of power in the east would have no voice. It would take a great argument to convince me it should be…

Crying foul

We all know a ton of dark money is trying to buy Zinke’s seat for Gianforte, but consider this: unless every penny of the costs associated with Trump Jr. and his Secret Service entourage’s upcoming visit to Montana are paid by Gianforte’s campaign, we are all effectively being forced to support Gianforte. This smacks of…

Sanctuary cities a foolish notion

America has never been a nation of immigrants. America has been a nation of assimilated immigrants. America is unique in world history for its melting-pot characteristic. An astonishing mix of nationalities, races, religions, and ideologies dwell together in peace in America. But in other countries those differences produce chaos and conflict. Why is America the…
