  • On Friday, the Bridger Scouts football team hosted Northern Cheyenne. Fresh off a close win over the Fromberg Falcons, the Scouts were looking to improve their record.

He has the ability to achieve consensus and unite diverse...
  • To the Editor, During the past seven summers that I’ve been coming to Red Lodge I’ve been very impressed by the sense of community in this area and the way in which people reach out to take care of each other. Last Sunday I experienced first-hand what it means to live among good neighbors, and I want to express my gratitude to several...
  • To the Editor, Last week I was visiting Red Lodge from Massachusetts  to scatter some ashes in memory of my husband, Robert Manning,  who died last year and loved fishing in Montana.   When the rear-view mirror on my rental car broke, I was really flustered because I had to drive to the Billings Airport the next day.  I...

You might have seen the flyer for the event. It looked like something promoting a snake oil salesman, which is appropriate. If you wanted to hear lies about fracking, you got to have dinner and...

What it means psychologically is that an individual sees the world from a different...
