  •   To the editor,   President Obama has designated the IRS (+9,000 more agents) to control Obama care funds. However an audit of IRS operating has revealed a $4 billion mistake that resembles the “Keystone Kops” antics. Six hundred IRS refund checks were sent to the same address in Bulgaria, a similar number to an address in...
  •   To the editor,   Who’s driving the bus? More important, where is it taking our children and the future of our education system?

  •   To the editor,   I was appalled at the post election comments from our current Mayor that were quoted in the Nov. 13 Dillon Tribune. His public claim of shock that Michael Klakken actually garnered 617 votes was tasteless. Perhaps he has been in touch with the wrong people. I, for one, was not a bit shocked.

  •   Dillon Beaver football fans enjoyed a toe-to-toe slugfest Friday night at Vigilante Field, at least in the early going. The hometown Beavers and visiting Belgrade Pathers exchanged haymakers throughout the first quarter of the Montana Class “A” semifinal playoff game before Belgrade staggered and Dillon rolled to a 48-14 victory...
  •   The BCHS Lady Beavers made it through three matches at the first Montana State A Volleyball Tournament that any of its team members had played in, knocking out Custer County on Friday morning in Bozeman before bowing out to Butte Central that afternoon. “This was the girls’ first time going as a state team, and I’m...
