  • To the Editor, I have attended the candidate forums in Red Lodge and Joliet. I have come away from both forums with the same conclusion. Josh McQuillan is the best candidate for Carbon County Sheriff. He: • Clearly articulates a vision and set of values for building on the solid foundation of the present department. • Understands the...
  • To the Editor, Medicaid expansion failed in the last Montana legislature for good reasons, and those reasons have not changed except to be even more obvious in light of many failures of the “Affordable Health Care Act”. Yes, Obama’s policies are on the ballot, even here in Montana. And I question claims of Obamacare and Medicaid...

  • Anticipated for the Week of October 3: Brewery Hill: Starting Oct. 4, Brewery Hill will be closed. Traffic will be detoured to Airport Road. Motorists can access Broadway via 19th. The closure was requested by the City of Red Lodge and will help accelerate construction. The closure will last three to four weeks. Goran has completed the storm drain...
  • The Bridger Lady Scouts have been on quite the roll lately, and they continued that success over the past week. The Scouts opened up the week, traveling to Park City, to take on the Lady Panthers. The Panthers pushed the Scouts to four games, giving them everything they had, but the Scouts proved to be too much. Led by seniors Shaniah Schwend and...
