  • Letitia S. “Tish” Ruffier, 86, passed away at the Valley Health Care Center, Billings, on July 28. Letitia Studdiford was born on Sept. 18, 1929, in New York City, the daughter of Andrew and Esther (Nimick) Studdiford. Her younger days were spent in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and Chappaqua, New York.

  • To the Editor, The compensation for our Carbon County Commissioners is very troubling. A 29 percent increase in 5 years is appalling when most people are receiving from 0 percent to 2 percent per year. In this time of doing more with less and with the economy in less than an ideal condition, we need to be ever more cognizant of the county expenses...
  • To the Editor, Since the Fourth of July weekend there has been considerable discussion around town about political and / or religious displays within City Parks, particularly Pride Park at the corner of 12th Street and Broadway. I was called in Saturday July 2 in regards to a political display in Pride Park and was asked if a permit was required...

  • To the Editor, I am supporting Denise Juneau, Democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives. She twice won election as Superintendent of Public Instruction in our state, where she developed effective initiatives to improve our public schools and universities. In that office, she recognized that quality education of our children is the...
  • To the Editor, Since 1884 a small piece of property at the edge of Red Lodge has developed into approximately 23 acres of honored ground. It has become an historical record of the ever changing makeup and character of the Red Lodge area population. Over six thousand individuals have been laid to rest here. Generations of families can trace their...
  • To the Editor, I was in error (Carbon County Commissioner) Mr. Grewell did not receive a 41 percent increase over the last 6 years. He only received a 29.1 percent increase over the last 5 years. Thanks for clearing that up John (Grewell). I challenge anyone to go to the 80 page Carbon County 2015-2016 Expenditure Budget Report published...
  • Don Coutts was one of the nicest people I’ve ever come across. He was an honest, salt of the earth type with a great smile, brilliant ‘John Wayne’ voice, and a heart of gold. I remember when I first had to interview him. I was so reluctant because he was so imposing and gruff like. But quite the contrary. We sat that day and...
