  •   During his service in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Milton Howard earned numerous honors, including a Bronze Star, Victory Medal, Good Conduct Medal and European Theatre Ribbon.  But the Dillon resident’s most moving honor of all for his service to his country may have come last week, when Milton Howard got a free trip from...
  •   The stiff, steady wind blowing through Vigilante Field during the first two thirds of Saturday’s football game might as well have been the air letting out of Montana Western’s hopes of beating Frontier Conference leaders Carroll College, as the #7-ranked Saints efficiently and ruthlessly deflated the Dawgs on their way to a 31-7...
  •   Lima made the short trip up to Sheridan last week, when the 7-6 Bears knocked off the struggling young Panther team. In the first set, Sheridan jumped on top of the Lady Bears, 3-0. But Lima reasserted itself behind three straight kills by junior star Emily Stosich, The Lady Bears committed a number of unforced errors in the match, but were...

  •   To the editor,   Three recent commentaries in the Tribune are similarly livid in their outrage at the fact that certain people or agencies or groups have dared to comment on wildlife management efforts or plans prepared by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. The three complainers apparently do not recognize that pubic comment is...
  •   To the editor,   The person most responsible for the government shutdown is Senator Harry Reid. He refused to let the Senate vote on two very good proposals from the House. The first proposal was that the House would fund the government if the Senate would delay for a year the individual mandate to purchase health insurance. Recall...
