  • (This piece originally appeared in the Dillon Tribune print edition of July 13,2016.) I took a couple of days off earlier this summer to stretch the weekend out in order to enjoy a get-together up at a favorite family gathering place, the old cabin at Pinnacle, not far from Glacier National Park.

That section is closed to outfitter float fishing. First, I’m not an outfitter, nor am I a guide. I fish that section of the river quite often and...
  • To the editor, My father was a Democrat and I am not. I have voted in every election since turning 21 in 1968. On a few – yes a few – occasions, I have voted Democratic, I have never voted for a Republican. I have never been comfortable with how I vote. But not to vote would make me invisible and irrelevant. Since Barry Goldwater, at...
  • The University of Montana Western offense lapped the notion that defense is always way ahead at this time of year with an impressive display on Vigilante Field during last Saturday’s first Bulldog summer scrimmage. The Western offense scored early, often and in a variety of manners behind several different quarterbacks from a wide range of...
