  • Disdain for science keeps us in the past

    Lash Ashmore, Seeley Lake, Montana|Apr 8, 2021

    To The Editor: The Merriam-Webster dictionary provides a definition of “relic” as “a trace of some past or outmoded practice or belief. That, I believe aptly describes Dale Terrillion and his contribution in the letters to the Pathfinder (“My two cents on wildlife bills” in the April 1 issue). His disdain for science and by association scientists, displays one of the things that is currently a major problem in this country. I for one place more faith in science and in the recommendations of the 53 signees to the letter (“Bills are harmful to...

  • Local candidate Tom Browder generates excitement

    Lash Ashmore, Condon, Montana|Oct 8, 2020

    With the vitriol and enmity permeating politics on the national level it is easy to become jaded and disengage. It often seems that we are relegated to choosing the least onerous candidate. It is difficult to get enthused. Fortunately, for a change, we have a local (and Tip O’Neill said “All politics is local.”) candidate who generates excitement. Tom Browder is running for the Montana House District 92 seat. Browder’s experience in the business world required him to work collaboratively to successfully mitigate problems. Browder will not onl...

  • Please, be more productive with your time

    Lash Ashmore, Seeley Lake, Mont.|Jun 11, 2020

    I fail to see the value in Roxie Sterling’s frequent, vitriolic diatribes denigrating democrats. We know all too well where she stands on the issues facing this country. Her incessant belittling of people and their opinions, that do not concur with her own, will do nothing to change the political landscape nor will it serve to unite the various factions. Please Roxie do everyone (that includes you) a favor and utilize your time in a more productive endeavor such as going out and registering voters and desist with the tiresome letters. S...

  • Sterling adds humor

    Lash Ashmore, Seeley Lake, Mont.|Jan 23, 2020

    I have always believed that a good laugh is excellent therapy for a multitude of ailments. Because of that belief I wish to thank you for the occasional humor column you have added to the Pathfinder. I am of course referencing the letters from Roxie Sterling. I do however hope you will replace them with something humorous and enlightening as well....

  • One Nation Under God in Pledge of Allegiance Since 1954

    Lash Ashmore, Seeley Lake, Mont.|Dec 24, 2015

    The Dec. 17, 2015 issue of the Pathfinder contained a letter from Larry Dillree. While I don’t agree with everything that is contained in that letter, I know Mr. Dillree to be a good man. It appears that Larry has a false memory (as we all do occasionally). He recalls reciting the Pledge of Allegiance (one nation under God) for the eight years he attended the grade school in Ovando. He states that he graduated in 1955. Since the phrase “one nation under God” did not enter the pledge until 1954 it appears that he recited the pledge witho...
