Republican Central Committee out of touch with the people

By Jim Shockley, Victor As Scott Boulanger said, he lost the Republican primary for the State Senate because the Democrats crossed over and voted in our primary. Scott was associated with Valerie Stamey (Treasurer of Ravalli County), the Republican Central Committee, and the three County Commissioners whose seats were up this election cycle: Suzy Foss,…

Letters to the Editor

Support for Ray

  Jennifer Ray has my support for Ravalli County Justice of the Peace, Dept. 1. She has earned this through her experience, hard work and dedication. Jennifer has a total of 12 years experience with the important work of Justice Court. Her duties as court administrator for Dept. 2 have given her extensive experience in…

Voting American

  Our county is in sad decline, possibly going to crash. Now is the time to try to save it and not vote to perpetuate political parties or liberal ideologies. We must beware of candidates who are either Obamacratic enablers like our Democratic Senators, or R&R Republicans (judged as “Reasonable” and “Responsible”) because they often…

Support for Connell

  The Montana Sportsmen’s Alliance would like to let the voters of Ravalli County know that we have endorsed Pat Connell running for Senate in District 44 in Ravalli County. With the passage of HB354 last legislative session, Pat has represented Ravalli County voters well. Pat’s bill, the “Fire Suppression Fund”, which established a way…

Support for Connell

  I would like to take this opportunity to lend my support to Pat Connell for Senate District 43. I have known Pat for a very long time both as an industry forester and fellow board member of the Montana Wood Products Association. Pat is an honest, dedicated, and hard working individual who will put…

Not supporting Connell

  State Representative Pat Connell is featured in the latest “Letters to the Editor” as an election winner for Republican State Senator. Sorry, folks, he’s “listed” as a Republican, but at a recent Republican dinner, when candidates presented their election stances, Connell had very little to say about his stance. Furthermore, a recent legislation voting…

Biblical imperatives

  I have to admit that Mr. Stark’s recent letter entitled “Unethical Campaign Politics” has a certain emotional appeal. Even for me, the thought of mentioning the word “politics” from the pulpit seems abhorrent because of the filth and sin associated with the process. However, closer examination reveals unbiblical implications. While a “particular ballot issue”…

Dump Common Core

  CC was designed by Bill Gates who’s had no formal education on writing educational programs, it’s not accountable to anyone and those running it have ties to Obama. Your’re led to believe it has State Standards but there are none! It’s socialistically run by our govt. to control our children. The filed Race to…

Local show worth seeing

  “Whistle Down the Wind”, now playing at the Stevensville Playhouse, is a very interesting choice for this theater! This is one of Webber’s least-known musicals, and it never made it to Broadway for who knows what reason. I can guess… the musical score is very challenging, especially in the wide range for each singer….

Support for Hawk

  The last four years have proven to be a major challenge for Ravalli County. The election of three new Commissioners with new ideas and a different perspective of the role of Commissioners has resulted in poor decisions that caused a near shut down of the Treasurer’s office. This caused untold difficulties for all of…

Support for Connell

  I would like to address a letter I saw a week or so ago about how Scott Boulanger was the better of the two running for state senate. If you want someone who follows the party line and never thinks on their own than Scott is the man for the job. His voting record…
