November, 2014

  • To the Editor,   I watched with amazement at the cavalier way Mr. Obama addressed the nation after the huge defeat of democratic candidates the day after the 2014 elections. I observed his comments [to the newly elected Congress] akin to bring me a rock [a rock I like] and we can work together [a narcissistic statement]. His obvious lack of...
  • Rams eleminate Shelby in straight sets  25-7, 25-14, 25-22. Rams now face Choteau at 4 p.m.
  • A new Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) water report reveals that the majority of Montana's major lakes, rivers and streams cannot fully support fish and other "aquatic (water) life."   State samples from more than 22,000 miles of streams and 518,000 acres of lakes show that more than 70 percent do not...
  • On Thursday, Nov. 5, a memorial garden next to Red Lodge City Hall was created in tribute to longtime resident, Bob Moran. Moran passed a year ago on Nov. 10, 2013. A group of friends and supporters endured a cold blasting wind for the dedication, standing near the garden located on the east side of the building. The memorial was made possible...
  • To the Editor, I want to thank Emily Bertino, the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary, the Board of Directors, the Volunteers and all the people and businesses that donated to this event. It was a great evening! I was very honored to be asked to come back for the Feast. It was great seeing old friends and supporters, and the animals. The Sanctuary is...
  • To the Editor, A little over a month and a half ago with little notice or pause for reflection, the Red Lodge community lost a great woman. I am talking of course of Norma Knisely Jarvi. For over 60 years she served the community first as a reporter, and later for the Montana Department of Revenue’s Appraiser’s Office. She came to Red...
  • To the Editor, A huge thank you to everyone who came out for the Community Area Foundation wine tasting benefit on Saturday. Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or took the opportunity to sample an array of wines, you helped to raise over $3,000 to support programs that will directly benefit this community! We’d also like to...
  • The Bridger Lady Scouts traveled to Absarokee last week for the district tournament. Coming in as the number one seed, the Scouts matched up with the Park City Panthers. As you would expect from a one seed, the Scouts made quick work of the Panthers, winning in three sets by the scores of 25-8, 25-11, and 25-13. However, the Scouts would suffer a...
  • What should have been a ho-hum district tournament in Columbus turned into a real series of cliffhangers. Going into the matches we figured that Huntley Project and Red Lodge would be moving on. We had beaten everyone else in the course of the season. Normally three teams move on, but every third year only two get to continue on and this was the...
