  • To the Editor, It is always good to see a candidate who isn’t afraid to listen to all sides and hold a town hall meet and greet! I met Susan “Elli” Elliott at the town hall meeting in Park City last month. I learned how important Montana is to her and where she stands on a lot of great issues, one which is very dear to me. I work...
  • To the Editor, In the recent past our legislature has experienced way too little cooperation between the political parties to get the people's business done. I support Elli Elliott for Senate District 29 because I believe her past experiences as a minister will make her a legislator who is willing to listen to different views and find a middle...
  • To the Editor, Representative David Howard has my vote for SD 29 I would like to thank Ms. Kern (from Red Lodge who wrote about SD 29 in last week’s newspaper) for encouraging the voters to look into Representative David Howard.   We are living in a period of time where our Freedom and Liberty are being threatened in this country; the...
  • To the Editor,   In response to Amy Kraft's letter of 9/26 I can certainly agree with her that Common Core is a poster child of the 2014 election. It is also easy to agree with her that standards are necessary for our families, our workplaces, our healthcare, our communities and also in education. Where I differ with Mrs. Kraft is...

He went to the happy hunting grounds on Oct. 8, 2014, as the oldest living descendant of Washington Duke (endower and namesake of Duke University). He was Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s third cousin and a direct...
  • The Red Lodge Lady Rams traveled to Manhattan Christian this past Saturday and returned home as this year’s tournament champions. It was a crowded field of eighteen teams, mainly from the western and northern part of the state. The girls had a fairly easy time with the morning pool games, (one game to 21). They lost only one game in a tight...

  • To the Editor, Although oil and gas companies would have you believe otherwise, the regulations they must follow while drilling do not protect landowners and their water supplies from contamination. They don’t even come close. The Energy Corporation of America has plans to “bring something like the Bakken” to the Beartooths. They...
  • To the Editor, I love this country! That a few hundred million imperfect people can govern themselves on this planet in pursuit of happiness and with liberty and justice for all is an amazing feat and a tribute to the rule of law. At a snail's pace we identify the injustices that we perpetrate and, inch by inch and lawsuit by lawsuit and...
