  • Alex Theusen, Travis McKenney and Jacob Kreatz took Red Lodge Rotary Club by storm as they described their experiences at the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) camp. Club members accompanied the boys' observations with numerous ovations throughout their presentation. McKenney called RYLA “One of the best weeks of my life.”...
  • To the Editor, Please allow me to express my horror at the so-called Iran deal.  I would like to begin with the definition of treaty from the American Heritage Dictionary:  a formal agreement between two or more states.

He waved back. It then occurred to me how my attitude toward the police has brightened in recent years and how the Red Lodge Citizens Academy has helped...
  • To the Editor, I sympathize with Betsy Scanlan’s words in the August 13 Carbon County News. We’ve been plagued by highway and street construction of dubious utility.

  • It’s a second chance to receive the healing of nature, it’s a second chance to renew family relationships. Such is the power of Operation Second Chance (OSC) based in Red Lodge and hosting another round of veterans visiting the area with their spouses. Three couples came on Sunday, August 9, to enjoy an unparalleled week of activity....
  • Back Alley Metals of Red Lodge has been accorded an honor of sorts. Owner Mick Thompson explained. “Next year is the Centennial of the National Parks.
