  •   To the editor,   I would like to present some comments in response to the recent article in the Tribune concerning the problems with law enforcement in the Lima area. To the residents of the southern half of Beaverhead County the concern is essentially the absence of visible enforcement personal and the longer response times. An...
  •   To the editor,    The fact-challenged letters (Dillon Tribune, Oct. 22, 2014) that totally misrepresent the conservative side of issues demand a response, but it’s not possible in one letter to refute and explain what amounts to a whole page of distortions that rely only on hot-button talking points such as “deny...
  •   Letter to the Editor:   I usually do not voice my opinion on many issues, but this one affects every tax payer in Beaverhead County. I would like to state that I am an avid pet lover. Currently I have one dog, five cats that I personally own, and when my kids come home I have five more dogs added to the bunch. Most of my cats over the...
  •   To the editor,   I too have lived most of my life -so far - in Beaverhead County (70 + years). I have had pets of all kinds most all of my life. I commend those who are responsible owners of critters. That said, I remember when the Beaverhead Humane Society was formed and set up as a no kill facility in 1997. In 2006 the shelter...

  •   Pansy Bradshaw, (aka John Ashley Drummond), 60, left his earthly home on Oct. 23 in Missoula.  After suffering a stroke, he died peacefully, with dignity, surrounded by those who cherished him. Author. Teacher. Artist. Preacher. Nanny. Activist. Brother. Quaker. Friend and Queer have been just a few of the words used to describe this...
  •   The University of Montana Western volleyball team won its fifth match out of its last six, as the Lady Bulldogs downed Westminster College in five sets last Thursday at Straugh Gymnasium. After hitting the halfway point in the season without recording a Frontier Conference win, the Lady Dawgs have flipped the switch and now have beaten...
  •   Two of the best eight-man football teams in the state took to the field Friday night, when #4 Twin Bridges made the trip to Ennis to face the #2 Mustangs, with the district championship on the line.
