  • Norma Marilyn Knisely Jarvi passed away from complications of post-polio and congestive heart failure at Grand Park, Billings, on Sept. 15, 2014.

  • To the Editor, It was disturbing to hear legislative candidate Seth Berglee’s recent comments regarding access to health care. Mr. Berglee implied that the 70,000 Montanans who currently do not have access to health care “choose not to work.” His position may be attributed to his youthful lack of experience, lack of knowledge of...
  • To the Editor, One characteristic that I value a great deal in elected officials is the willingness to listen. They should be willing to listen not only to those constituents who belong to their party but also to those whose views may differ from theirs. Dave Howard, our current state representative now running for state senate, did not listen....

During the course of the evening, entitled the Twilight Tour, the group saw five impressive and spacious homes all...

  • Red Lodge Rams football opened the season with a non-conference loss to the Forsyth Doggies 41-0. In looking for positives, it is easy to see that playing a really tough defensive team right away in a schedule will help the Rams program learn what areas need work and adjustments, and in listening to the team after the game that is what was being...
