To the Editor,   We support Mitzi Vorachek for Carbon County (District 58) representative to the Montana House, and we urge readers to vote for her. We find Mitzi to be moderate in her policy positions and mature in her conduct. She’ll find the facts, reach out to people with differing views, and seek reasonable ways to get things done.  Energy is a good example. Everybody talks...

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

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

To the Editor, Although oil and gas companies would have you believe otherwise, the regulations they must follow while drilling do not protect landowners and their water supplies from contamination. They don’t even come close. The Energy Corporation of America has plans to “bring

To the Editor, I love this country! That a few hundred million imperfect people can govern themselves on this planet in pursuit of happiness and with liberty and justice for all is an amazing feat and a tribute to the rule of law. At a snail's pace we identify the injustices that we perpetrate

To the Editor, A nationally acclaimed pistol shooting champ and firearms instructor; a combat veteran; an honor student and science major - Seth Berglee, smart, poised, articulate and modest, is prepared to take on the issues facing Montana in the coming years. His belief that Montanans are best at

To the Editor, In the past, it has not been a practice of mine to support a political candidate through the press. In this race for public office I feel compelled to speak up for Mitzi Vorachek. I became aquainted with Mitzi over 15 years ago when she and her husband, Jim, first moved to Red Lodge

To the Editor, And a special thanks to our hardworking candidates. I especially want to thank Seth Berglee for offering his experience to Carbon County. Thank you for your Service. In his almost 30 years, Seth has had more experience than most of us in a lifetime, and congratulations, Seth, for
