Don't Miss "The Era of Megafires"

I know our minds are all on the high floodwaters, the obstructed roadways, and flooded homes, but looking at the long game, I see a very vibrant Spring season for foliage and fire fuels. If we get a dry period this summer, that will be prime dry...

Experience Matters

As the saying goes, “experience matters.” I could not agree more. What kind of experience do we want?  Being raised by a single mom who had to work for everything in life has taught me that nothing good is just handed to you, you need to work...

 

Bridges Clear Choice for HD92

Lee Bridges is the people’s pick for House District 92. I have known Lee for over a quarter century and she is a conscientious, determined individual that I would trust with my life. As a retired sergeant major of US Army Special Forces, I can tel...

Proven Track Record Makes Curtiss First Choice

MISSOULA - Jean Curtiss is so much more to our community than a county commissioner. She cares about the unique challenges facing everyone who lives here, in town and in the rural parts of the county. Long after the lights are out at the county court...

 

Slotnick - Community Builder We Need

MISSOULA - I was thrilled to hear Josh Slotnick is running for County Commissioner because I’ve seen what his vision and his deep seeded abilities as a community builder can do. I’ve known Josh since I was in graduate school when he taught me...

Curtiss is the Local Leadership Needed for Businesses and Jobs

MISSOULA - When I first came to Missoula more than a decade ago, the concept of “economic development” was met with skepticism and outright resistance. When the recession hit that sentiment started to change. More and more people started...

Support Non-Millionaire and Veteran Dr. Al Oslzewski for Senate

I hear that Matt Rosendale turned down a state pay raise from the state of Montana. Of course any other multi millionaires working for the state probably would have also. Nice political ploy Matt. Now you can mention this gracious move on your part...

 

I Know What It Takes - Vote Ellinghouse

SEELEY LAKE - The Fire Service is an ever changing dynamic. If you don’t take the time to train and take classes, whether as a volunteer member or a trustee (and yes there are classes for trustees offered by the state), then you become complacent....

 
 By Bruce Hall    Opinion    May 3, 2018

Transparent – and Obvious

SEELEY LAKE - The new candidates for membership on the Board of Directors of the Seeley Lake Sewer District have indicated their desire to serve. I doubt service is their true intention. Bubbling up between their claims of bringing transparency, a...

 

Duane "Cecil" Schlabach for HD 92

Wallenburn Responds to Spence's Questions

SEELEY LAKE - Mr. Spence hit the nail on the head. There is a lot of false information regarding the sewer and his article in the April 26th Letters to the Editor is a prime example. His first question is “How is that [Placid Lake algae bloom]...

 

Schlabach - Someone Who Will Listen and Serve Montanans

I am writing this letter to encourage citizens of House District 92 to vote for Duane “Cecil” Schlabach as our representative in the June 5th election. Cecil is both a hunter and an outdoorsman who recognizes the importance of keeping public...

 

Curtiss Sees Big Picture, Balances Urban & Rural Needs
