    Pathfinder Staff|Jan 12, 2023

    SEELEY LAKE - When Seeley Swan Community Food Bank President Lulu Rodriguez opened the door to the Food Bank Monday evening, Dec. 26, water poured out the door.

Seeley Lake Elementary School Superintendent Josh Gibbs said a pipe broke in two places spraying water for one to three days. This affected the school's storage area and...

    By Gwyneth Hyndman SWAN VALLEY - A new non-profit has formed with an aim to conserve and enhance the natural resources and rural way of life in the Swan Valley, largely in response to the controversial proposed expansion of Holland Lake Lodge. Founder Grace Siloti, a Condon resident since 1976, said that the fight over the proposed development at Holland Lake Lodge by Utah-based group POWDR - a project that was sent back to the drawing board by the Flathead National Forest just before Thanksgiving - “has really shaken people up” and she add...

  • Love has a speed

    Roger Andruss, Condon Community Church|Jan 12, 2023

    Augustine is credited with the expression “Solvitur ambulando” which means, “It is solved by walking”. Whenever I hear that, I wonder, what is solved? Perhaps many things. The apostle John wrote, “Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus walked.” (1 John 2:6). Jesus was a pedestrian. In the Bible, it’s less common to find him preaching in the Temple than it is walking. He walked out into the desert to be tempted. As he walked by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers. “Come and follow me,” he said. He even walked on water. It was whi...

  • Shoemaker's treks in the Mission Mountains

    Steve Lamar, Upper Swan Valley Historical Society|Jan 12, 2023

    If you were to look at a map of the Mission Mountains 100 years ago, you would see a lot of blank space. Except for verbal descriptions and sketches shared by the early-day Native people, priests, trappers, hunters, and prospectors, the Mission Mountains were, for the most part, uncharted at that time. McDonald Peak was one of the few mountains named on the early maps. Most of the mountains, lakes, streams, and other features were not shown. Many of the place names on the present-day maps of...

    Ken Silvestro PhD|Jan 12, 2023

The pendulum swings from one side to the other to enable the clock to function and maintain time. It's the pendulum movement that helps us understand the meaning of this word. The pendulum repeatedly swings from one extreme to another – from one side to the other side. That's basically what our strange word means ...
