To the Editor, I want to give a big thanks to all my friends who remembered me while I was two and a half months in the hospital. I am enjoying being home now, thanks in no small part to their thoughts and prayers. Although in a wheelchair for now, I am also able to get in and out of our house, a huge thanks to the hard work of the crew of friends who pitched in this past weekend and helped build...

To the Editor, While out back of a Red Lodge Main Street business a few nights ago, a police car turned in and drove down the alley next to us. My hand instinctively went up and I waved at him. He waved back. It then occurred to me how my attitude toward the police has brightened in recent years

To the Editor, I sympathize with Betsy Scanlan’s words in the August 13 Carbon County News. We’ve been plagued by highway and street construction of dubious utility. I presume that the design errors on Main Street can be corrected, and that the City, County, and State will repair the damage to the

To the Editor, Ed Willliams: the best mayor for our Fair City. I would like to personally thank Mayor Ed Williams for committing to a second term as our Mayor. He continues to be an outstanding leader and City Administrator and I am very enthusiastic about him continuing as our Mayor. Here are a

To the Editor, Flags that go up and then come down and then go up again need help from those of you who care. The Red Lodge Broadway flags are resting peacefully after much unnecessary movement. We are asking for your support. Many of the flags need to be replaced. The upcoming fun run is a great
