  • 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...

  • To the Editor , Thank you to Congressman Steve Daines for introducing legislation for Wild and Scenic Designation for preservation of the East Rosebud Creek in Carbon County, Montana.  It is great that you feel the same awe and wonder that we do about this very special place in the Absaroka–Beartooth Wilderness with its incredible...
  • To the Editor, Voters need only look at Josh’s 18 years of law enforcement experience with the Carbon County Sheriff’s Department, his commitment to the citizens of Carbon County having lived here all of his life, his demonstrated leadership qualities having risen through the ranks of the Sheriff’s Department starting as an...

  • To the Editor, As a ‘Montana Native’, I can say that I have met few people so honestly committed to improving the town and the state, which I call home. Mitzi’s compassion and intellect, combined with her ability to inspire advocates and adversaries to work towards the common good, are rare qualities. We can all be grateful for...

Two issues are important to me: Money and environment. Transparency is critical in finances, especially government and political campaigns. The environment is something that we take for...
  • To the Editor, A good judge is an impartial one who will interpret the law without political bias. Lawrence Van Dyke will be one such judge. His many years of experience as an attorney in appellate courts have given him a keen eye for the law that will greatly enhance our Montana Supreme Court. His judgments are not results oriented (seeing first...
  • To the Editor, Good Morning America just ran a story about a fellow who wants to sell his house in Detroit for an iphone6. How does something like this happen? The Motor City was built by hard work and free enterprise. Home of the American muscle car and American muscle. Seventy five percent of America's WW2 effort came from Motown. Detroit...
