I lived in Humboldt each summer with my family since I was 7, I worked and ran...
  •   To the editor,   Something smells in that field outside Jackson, Montana, and it’s not the “slit trenches” used by the Rainbow family.   While our American Legion Post “managed” the Lari’s Kids Fishing Pond in Twin Bridges; we were required to have “a liability insurance plan” that...
