Proposal to get our citizens to vote

By Carlotta Grandstaff, Hamilton Allow me to introduce my grandfather, Joe Foley. As a young man and soldier of the Great War, he was gassed on a European battlefield. He suffered the effects for the rest of his life. “President Wilson sent me to war,” he often told me, “but I never held it against…

Letters to the Editor

Response to Cornelius

How amusing that Mr. Cornelius would question my name linked to an anti-Walmart letter, saying he had never seen this before unless it was staff (I’m not); a prominently known “guest” (I’m not); or a syndicated writer (which, sadly, I’m not). I do, however, have up-close and personal knowledge concerning the harm versus the benefits…

Methodist bazaar success

We would like to thank the citizens of Stevensville and surrounding communities for their generous support of the United Methodist Women’s annual Fall Bazaar and Luncheon which was held on Oct. 26. This year our proceeds were over $6700, our largest yet! About a third of these proceeds will go to Bitterroot Valley non-profits including…

Thanks for helping with blitz build

What a wonderful community… The blitz build is over, the governor’s gone, and the dust has settled, so I wanted to take a moment to shout out a huge thank you to those businesses who helped make it such a success by donating materials and/or labor to the Habitat for Humanity house being built in…

Thanks from Darby Trail of Discovery

On Saturday, October 25th, Heidi Kaminski of The Right to Bare Arms gym in Darby hosted a fun run to raise money for the Darby Trail of Discovery. The event was well attended and all the funds raised were donated for trail maintenance. Thanks to Heidi for her generous support and hard work in helping…

The Skateboard Generation

I’d like to call them the ‘Blade Runners’. The now generation! You know, Stevi’s little young starlets that, sporadically, just before twilight, come whizzing by on their majestically angelic skateboards. They’re the sweetest little things, all fancily arrayed in their selectively chosen skateboard attire – pastel colored hair, bobby socks, make-up and the likes there-of,…

America’s Liberty Bell is ringing again!

Just before the 4 November 2014 election, Obama stated that even though he wasn’t on the ballot, his policies were! Much to Obama’s dismay, America’s conservative and independent voters agreed with Obama for a change! Those damaging policies include Obamacare, the economy, foreign policy, and amnesty, as well as the cover-up of scandals such as…

Re: Justice Jim Bailey’s re-election

How terrible is wisdom when it brings no profit to the wise… The same can be said, I suppose, of cleverness. Most people don’t go to court, but those that do, likely will stand before a Justice of the Peace, in Ravalli County. Clever Jim Bailey has just been re-elected… Justice Jim Bailey is capable…

Dire consequences with new EPA rule

The long dreaded redefinition of the word “navigable” as applied to “Waters of the U.S. is finally upon us. The deadline for comment is this coming Friday, November 14 at 11:59 p.m. The Washington DC Environmental Protection Agency office will be receiving phone calls at 202-566-2428 and emails at CWAwaters@epa.gov. Claims of mud puddles, rain…

Public land transfer bad for Montana

In a recent op-ed, state senator Jennifer Fielder suggests that a Utah county commissioner, Nevada state legislators and a Canadian negotiator know what’s best for us here in Montana. I’d like to think Montanans know what’s best for Montana. While transferring federal lands into state hands may be of interest to some people outside the…
