Outrageous county settlement raises questions

By Tom Boland, Florence Being new to the valley and being generally interested in what’s going on around me, I decided to spend a morning reading “the Court File” to learn what all the hubbub is about with the Big Sky Development v. Ravalli Co. Commissioners case. Yes, sadly, that’s my idea of a good…

Letters to the Editor

Support for Walmart

I am totally fed up with all the hype about “No Box Store” and all the comments made about business downtown being ruined. I think the competition for our dollar would be a healthy move. I also don’t believe that a store like Walmart or any other box store would be stupid enough to ruin…

Incompetence rewarded

I have a question for the people who re-elected Jeff Burrows for county commissioner. Mr. Burrows is one of three commissioners who appointed Valerie Stamey as treasurer, a decision that cost us, the taxpayers, more than $120,000 in damage control. With that in mind, if Mr. Burrows were a Democrat or Independent instead of a…

Say no to ‘big box’

I immediately fell in love with Hamilton and am waiting for my home. I grew up in rural Nevada and have seen first hand how “BIG BOX” stores killed my little town. First the little Hallmark stores died, to be replaced with an empty building. Next was the hardware stores and the ladies dress shops,…

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…
