  •   To the editor:   Breaking News: Hillary Clinton responsible for Rommel’s attack on Benghazi in 1941!! “She was almost certainly involved.” said John Boehner, “It was only five years before she was born!” Among Republicans, you can smell the fear. Was anything more predictable? With the Health Care Act...
  •   To the editor:   We in Beaverhead County have been witness to Representative Welborn’s vehement denouncing of outside dark money being interjected into our local Republican Primary Race for HD 72. Had his response not been one of such arrogance and indignation regarding this legal use of Political Action Committee’s (PAC)...
  •   To the editor:   It’s too bad that Duke Gilbert chose to extend the Warren and Brenneke lawsuits out over more than five years, especially since they weren’t really necessary in the first place. When the fact that these lawsuits were actually a grudge match on the part of our former mayor against Mr. Warner and Mr. Brenneke...
  •   To the editor:   Is it just me or are there others whom feel the folks of Beaverhead County are being peppered with mailers from outside interest groups. The first question that pops into my mind is “Why?” Why would some political action committee (PAC) want to influence southwest Montana? The thought kept nagging me, so...
  •   Friends and birthdays take on greater meaning for cancer survivors, and Bark for Life and the Cancer Survivors & Caregivers Birthday Celebration look to help invest even more meaning in them on National Cancer Survivors Day this Sunday at the Barrett Hospital & Healthcare campus in Dillon. Best friends, of the canine variety, or any...
  •   Commencement speaker Steve Vezina – teacher, mentor, coach and source of great inspiration – did his best to focus the attention of the audience on the 80 young men and women who were about to receive their diplomas from Beaverhead County High School. Nonetheless, his speech was as dynamic in delivery it was in message, bringing...
  •   The Dillon girls placed second and Beaver boys grabbed fourth in last week’s Southwest Divisional Track Meet at Vigilante Stadium in Dillon, while also qualifying a number of their competitors for the upcoming State A Meet. Dillon’s all-around star athlete Cierra Lamey set a new school record in both the 200 and 400 meter dashes...
  • Diane Sands, scholar and state representative, will present a survey of women and their  political influence in Montana as part of the Dillon Hometown Humanities Program, Tuesday, May 27, at 7 p.m. in the Old Depot Theater. The program is being presented as part of the centennial celebration of Montana’s passage of Women’s...
  •   To the editor,   Every day I hear and see many candidates on television saying, “vote for me, for a smaller government and I am a conservative.” They never say what a smaller government or a “conservative” means. Lets look back at a conservative. The last time we voted for a President who said he was a “...
  •   To the editor,   In my last letter, I commented on my dismay at State Representative Jeff Welborn’s liberal voting record in regard to family issues, a record that hardly places him as a true representative of the conservative values of the great majority of Beaverhead County residents.     Unfortunately, Jeff Welborn...
