  •   To the editor,   The current governmental shut-down is not, as some news outlets would lead us to believe, the fault of both Republicans and Democrats.  It is solely the fault of Republican Party extremists, among them our representative Steve Daines. The origin of the shut-down is a FreedomWorks campaign launched just after the...
  •   To the editor,   Where in the world is this country going? Close down the World War II Memorial, why?  These brave men fought so we could have freedom and this is the thanks they get.  We have two family members who gave their lives and are buried somewhere over there and some think that these World War II vets deserve. Close...
  •   Question 1 on philosophy – The mayor election is nonpartisan and yet both of the candidates in the past have claimed to be Republicans.  A good tactic since in any given election, the electorate in Beaverhead County will vote 75 to 80% Republican.  The Republican philosophy of small government and low taxes seems at odds...

  •   The Hamilton Broncs dictated terms during the first 6:13 of the first quarter in the Southwestern “A” battle at Dillon with the Beavers.  Hamilton received the opening kickoff, and using a spread offense with a short, quick passing game emphasis, advanced the ball down the field with short gains in both the pass and run,...
  •   The Lady Beavers volleyball team played great while winning an easy one on the road this past week, only to struggle two days later with unforced errors at home, where they dropped a tight match to move to 4-3 in conference play on the season. On Thursday, the Dillon netters travelled to the MAC center in Butte and swept the struggling...
  •   Constance Maureen Shultz (Connie) passed away October 5, 2013, after an excruciating battle with cancer. Connie was born February 25, 1943, in Great Falls to Ralph Nebel and Eunice Freie Arrigoni.  As a young girl, she was raised on a farm in Dillon and was educated in the Dillon public schools.   While in high school, she was a...
  •   George Fred Davis, 77, passed away on October 9, 2013, in Sheridan at the Tobacco Root Mountain Care Center, where he had lived for 13 years. George was born August 26, 1936, in Trenton, NJ, but soon moved to Sheridan, WY, where he attended grade school. It was there he contracted encephalitis, which left him partially paralyzed and...
  •   To the editor,   On the weekend of September 28-29 I found myself surrounded at a Belly of the Bengeyfield Beast locale: The Deep Creek Shooting Range west of Missoula.   The venue was awash in card carrying NRA members, people subject of considerable vitriol by Mr. B.   Watching the group convened for the Montana State Long...
  •   To the editor,   Affordable Care Act or Obama care was a compromise on a previous compromise. It is not national health care of a single payer variety. It is not socialized medicine, and that is too bad. With the Government Partial Shutdown only the people suffer. What concerns me most, is watching the news many people blame congress...
