  • To the Editor, Those of us who reside in Montana appreciate the beauty of the landscapes, the clean air, and clear waters. But many of us also are not aware that the land, air, and water have been protected for our use for decades through the work of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA,) made possible by continuing, annual federal funding....
  • To the Editor, As Montanans, we have a distinct relationship with land. It defines us: Our rugged individualism, our tenacity, our grit. I attribute all these qualities to growing up with majestic landscapes creeping into our DNA, forming a unique way we walk in the world. For those of us who come from ranching, we can’t talk about weather...

There are some voters that had asked about my position on this bill, I want to give my reasons for not supporting it. First I would like to clear up several misconceptions. Without the bill people can still vote by mail by requesting an absentee ballot. Not...
  • To the Editor, After a long absence from Montana (where I had been editor and publisher of the Carbon County News), I was delighted on my recent return to rediscover the friendliness of this Big Sky state. Except in current politics. The campaign by Greg Gianforte -- consisting of cheap shots against Rob Quist’s motives or character -- has...
  • To the Editor, “Voting is your right and responsibility.” “Vote as if your life depended on it.” You’ve probably heard these slogans. Most likely you’ve seen the political ads, read the editorials, and listened to the debates.  Now you’re wondering why the sense of urgency; why does voting matter? It...
  • To the Editor, It is with a sense of civic obligation, due to the extremely important nature of the office of United States Senator from Montana, that I write this letter.  My concern about the upcoming election to fill Ryan Zinke’s vacant seat centers on candidate Rob Quist. I have worked with a non-profit entertainment presentation...
