  • To the Editor, The Roberts Community Foundation is a 501-3(c) organization founded in 1997 for the benefit of the community of Roberts.

  • To the Editor, Thank you to the people who braved icy roads to attend the Molt Volunteer Fire Department’s chili supper and auction. Your support of the department means a lot. Every year we are amazed by the items donated to the auction and by the prices you willingly pay. Thank you, again. (And hope to see you next year.) Molt VFD Molt
  • To the Editor, I really hadn't had much of a Christmas spirit this year. Thanks to a group of Belfry residents, both kids and adults, that all changed. On Wednesday evening, Dec. 11, a knock came on the door and when I opened the door there stood a number of caring Belfry residents singing Christmas carols. It had been years since we had...
  • To the Editor, I don’t believe that the general population of our area is fully aware of the implications planned for the upcoming Highway 212/Highway 78 projects. Two round-abouts are scheduled, one at the junction of 212/78 and one at the 2 Mile Bridge Road on Highway 212. These are to be single lane round-abouts due to the shortage of...

  • A contest held by Beartooth Ford in Red Lodge to giveaway a minivan to a deserving individual or family culminated with not one, but two, very surprised recipients on Friday, Dec. 20.

The students were given a scenario which they had to...
  • When the sun sinks low in the sky by three-thirty, we pay attention. The mountains form an easel of sorts, and the sky a canvas, while the sun and clouds paint new magic every afternoon. Deep rose and mystical lavender one day, then an almost spectral yellow and ochre the next. How can so much change be visited on our broad banner of Montana sky...
  • Unless you live under a rock, the holidays are here in full swing. For some people this is a joyous time of year. A time to decorate the home with lights, ornaments, wintery-scented candles, trees of assorted sizes, and festive centerpieces. A time where families and friends get together for special dinners, gift exchanges followed by hugs, kisses...
