  • To the Editor, Like many of my fellow Montanans, I grew up with common sense politics. Politicians had to be moderate and reach across the aisle because voters are fiercely independent. As a result, party lines weren’t as rigid, because a pure approach didn’t reflect our shared values. Politicians had to listen to people instead of...

The decision was made to kill the...
  • Justin King, a senior at Joliet High School, has signed a letter of intent to play football for MSU Northern in Havre. He will play offensive line, a role he has played throughout his high school career. Understandably King admits to being a “little nervous” but is also “excited” about the prospect of playing football at a...
  • A Response was recently filed to the Appeal in U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit filed by Carbon County Attorney Alex Nixon and former Carbon County Sheriff Thomas Rieger, to dismiss the case filed by William “Bill” Burgan in U.S. District Court. Burgan claimed they denied access to a headgate across the property of James...
  • To the Editor, Before running for Governor (and losing), billionaire Greg Gianforte built his trophy home along the Gallatin River and tried to kill the public access easement to it. Knowing that Montana citizens would be outraged, he tried to shield himself from the consequences of suing the state by hiding behind a corporation in his wife's...
  • Dear Residents of Carbons County, This month, I would like to discuss an item that will be running in the Carbon County News in the next few weeks.  Due to some new legislation, the schools in the state are now being asked to share our projected raises in taxes to any permissive funds.  Permissive funds are funds that the school...
