  •   Going into this weekend’s Southwestern A Divisional Invitational cross country meet, Dillon’s runners have continued to show steady improvement over the season, with two members of the boys’ varsity team trimming significant margins from last year’s times at this point in the season.

  •   To the editor,   I would like to urge voters to elect Kacey Smart as Clerk of the District Court for Madison County on November 4th. Raised in the county and already the current Clerk of Court, she is obviously the most qualified candidate with over 7 years of on-the-job experience in all aspects of the office. Her extensive...
  •   To the editor,   Today I was reflecting on why my wife and I live in Dillon. A question that is often asked by our children and grandchildren. Who, by the way live all around the world. One of the reasons is Frank Kluesner. Our first day in Dillon (June 2000) the day The Rainbow People came into our life. We arrived at the motel just...
  •   To the editor,   Recently there have been allegations from a former employee about the way the Sheriff’s Office has been managed. The deputies of the Beaverhead County Sheriff’s Office have over 55 years of combined law enforcement experience from a variety of backgrounds, civilian and military. This letter is written to...
