  • To the Editor, We’ve got four good candidates willing to represent us in Helena. They deserve our thanks! The elected candidates will generally vote their party line and some upcoming issues may profoundly affect our lives, depending on their party’s position. As we consider casting our vote, their political party’s ideologies...
  • To the Editor, I feel so honored to be asked to come back to the Feast for the Beasts as a special VIP Guest. I am happy to help support the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary. I am looking forward to seeing lots of old friends at the Feast.  Make sure to get your tickets early as we are hoping for a sell out. The Sanctuary and the animals need...
  • To the Editor, As a ‘Montana Native’, I can say that I have met few people so honestly committed to improving the town and the state, which I call home. Mitzi’s compassion and intellect, combined with her ability to inspire advocates and adversaries to work towards the common good, are rare qualities. We can all be grateful for...
  • To the Editor, A democratic republic such as ours seems to be an inherently complicated and messy system. So many issues arise that it is hard to keep track. Two issues are important to me: Money and environment. Transparency is critical in finances, especially government and political campaigns. The environment is something that we take for...
  • To the Editor, A good judge is an impartial one who will interpret the law without political bias. Lawrence Van Dyke will be one such judge. His many years of experience as an attorney in appellate courts have given him a keen eye for the law that will greatly enhance our Montana Supreme Court. His judgments are not results oriented (seeing first...
  • To the Editor, Good Morning America just ran a story about a fellow who wants to sell his house in Detroit for an iphone6. How does something like this happen? The Motor City was built by hard work and free enterprise. Home of the American muscle car and American muscle. Seventy five percent of America's WW2 effort came from Motown. Detroit...
  • To the Editor, It is always good to see a candidate who isn’t afraid to listen to all sides and hold a town hall meet and greet! I met Susan “Elli” Elliott at the town hall meeting in Park City last month. I learned how important Montana is to her and where she stands on a lot of great issues, one which is very dear to me. I work...
  • To the Editor, In the recent past our legislature has experienced way too little cooperation between the political parties to get the people's business done. I support Elli Elliott for Senate District 29 because I believe her past experiences as a minister will make her a legislator who is willing to listen to different views and find a middle...
  • To the Editor, Representative David Howard has my vote for SD 29 I would like to thank Ms. Kern (from Red Lodge who wrote about SD 29 in last week’s newspaper) for encouraging the voters to look into Representative David Howard.   We are living in a period of time where our Freedom and Liberty are being threatened in this country; the...
  • To the Editor,   In response to Amy Kraft's letter of 9/26 I can certainly agree with her that Common Core is a poster child of the 2014 election. It is also easy to agree with her that standards are necessary for our families, our workplaces, our healthcare, our communities and also in education. Where I differ with Mrs. Kraft is...
