  •   Janet Garland has a special place in her heart for the Shriners and their Children’s Hospitals. Her mother spent three and one-half years at the St. Louis Shriners Hospital and as a result, she supports the group whenever they call. “I bought the tickets to the oyster feed three weeks before when Harvey Franks was selling them,...
  •   Dillon’s Troy Scott recently earned recognition from league coaches, voted the Southwestern “A” Conference “Most Valuable Player,” as well as an first team all-conference pick and one of three Southwestern “A” selections to the Montana Class “A” All-State Boys Basketball team. “...
  • Dillon’s Great Harvest Bread Company has set its Bake Day fundraiser April 2-4 to raise money for the Dillon Cubs American Legion Baseball organization. All sales from the three-day event will go toward funding the nonprofit youth baseball program, the company said in a press release Wednesday. The bakery, located at 25 E. Glendale St. next...
  •   To the editor,    I would like to submit a different form of city government to the citizens of Dillon. A strong mayor form of city government I truly believe that this change will serve the city far better than the current form. I also believe that it will force the city council to be more in line as it should be. I am sure you...
  •   To the editor,   Mr, Hanley, I read your comments last week and you said my view on wars is misplaced. I don’t know why you want us to keep sending young men and women into battle unnecessarily to die in unneeded wars?

  •   To the editor,   A few weeks ago I made a request to the City Council members for copies of e-mail communications between them and Mayor Malesich between the November, 2013 election and the first council meeting in January, 2014. I made my request under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act that has been federal law since...
  •   To the editor,   I was disappointed that Reverend Stewart’s letter in last week’s Tribune called my recent proposal to the City Council an effort “to adopt a non-discrimination ordinance against gay, lesbian, transgender people.” Trust me. I’d never propose such an ordinance against these people. The main...
  •   To the editor,   I agree with Dale Stewart, and share the thoughts he expressed in his excellent letter in the Tribune. I have been following these Non-Discrimination Ordinances (NDO’s) since the first one in Missoula. They do not solve any problem. They create turmoil and chaos and misunderstandings for schools and businesses....
