  •   On Thursday, the Bridger Scouts traveled to Absarokee for the 2nd straight week, but this time for the Divisional tournament. Fresh off of their district championship, the lady Scouts would take on Winifred/Roy in the first round. Winifred/Roy, while coming in as the 4th seed in the tournament, didn’t back down to the highly touted...

  • To the Editor, Naming the library the Adams-Moran Memorial library. With the death of Bob it would be fitting to name the library after him and his adopted mother Mary Adams. Between the two of them they have given a true legacy to Red Lodge. Bob was very involved in most everything Red Lodge, this would be a lasting tribute. Tim O’Malley...

  • To the Editor, Congratulations, Ed on your fine win. I had a great time and I know that we stirred the people of Red Lodge into a dialogue with each other and now with the council and new mayor.

They jammed this crappy health care down our throats, which they themselves, along with their union friends, Gov. workers, congress, and the president himself, don’t have to subscribe to, and after the President himself swore you could keep...
