  • Cross-species spread of bird flu is raising concerns from bear management

    Asa Thomas Metcalfe|Apr 13, 2023

    CONDON- April 5 brought snow showers, but despite the reluctance of spring to come around the Swan Valley Connections hosted their annual Spring Bear Wake Up Social- a potluck and presentation on the local bear population. Birdfeeders, outdoor pet shelters, gardens, and livestock can all attract the attention of a bear as it passes through, but in recent years the main concern for bear management has become chicken coops. "Chickens are the new trash," has become a kind of catch-phrase for the...

  • Local ice skater finds fulfillment and passion

    Jean Pocha|Apr 13, 2023

    Tanya Fyfe grew up in Canada and spent her whole life skating on ice. It was a part of every aspect of her life until she moved to Seeley Lake and hung up her skates. But after a hiatus, she is back in the skates. "Ice skating has given me everything I ever wanted in life," said Fyfe, local realtor, part-time veterinarian, author and lifelong figure skater in an interview at her home near Seeley Lake. Fyfe performed March 25-26 at the "Skaters got Talent" ice show in Hazen, ND for the first...

  • An apology from the Pathfinder

    Asa Thomas Metcalfe|Apr 13, 2023

    A few weeks ago our archives page featured a story about criminal charges filed in 1988 against two individuals who since that brush with the law had become well-loved members of this community before dying tragically and suddenly a year and half ago. As the editor of the Pathfinder I want to apologize for bringing up this dark time in the lives of people who, by all accounts, were wonderful people. But to be clear, our archives are selected randomly by a staff member of the Philipsburg Mail. There certainly wasn’t any malicious intent to t...

  • To The Owners and Editors of The Seeley Swan Pathfinder:

    Vicki Voegelin|Apr 13, 2023

    To The Owners and Editors of The Seeley Swan Pathfinder: In the March 30, 2023 issue in the archives section you include the story of Kerry and Stacy Good. This was not only distasteful and cruel, it shows a true lack of journalist research. With just a few clicks on your keyboard your team would have found that this family has had its share of tragedy. They have risen from that part of their history. If you need to be educated I will take this opportunity to do so. Stacy Good, mentioned in the article, was killed along with three of her...

    Scott Kennedy|Apr 13, 2023

    [In] response to Andi Bourne’s comments. Seeley Lake Fire District transparency is paramount. “Privacy Rights” protection, includes legal documents which are transmitted to the District Attorney for instructions. Andi is aware of past challenges. If the board could share past events, the public would better understand trials and tribulations and decisions made. Regardless, improved services prevailed exponentially and in UNITY. Short meetings: I note meetings lasted longer before restructuring, hiring, drafting budgets, policy manual rewri...

  • The Clearwater Resource Council is opposed to the proposed gravel pit near Elbow Lake.

    Jon Haufler, President of Clearwater Resource Council|Apr 13, 2023

    The Clearwater Resource Council is opposed to the proposed gravel pit near Elbow Lake. This area is directly adjacent to the most important winter range for big game in the Clearwater Valley . Our analyses also show that the gravel pit and asphalt plant are located in swales that will drain into wetlands mapped in the National Wetland Inventory, including a freshwater pond. This will facilitate the transport of sediment and contaminants to the wetlands, pond, and ultimately Elbow Lake and the Clearwater River. A detailed explanation of the...

  • Grow your relationship with Jesus Christ the Easter

    Sherman Smith, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints|Apr 13, 2023

    We can learn from the example Jesus Christ set throughout His whole ministry. Each new day is an opportunity for us to experience the joy and peace that is possible because of Him. On Palm Sunday, (A Joyful Entrance) Jesus Christ made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem as His followers surrounded Jesus with love and praise, shouting "Hosanna". Monday, (The Cleansing Of The Temple) Jesus visited the temple and was appalled to see a place of worship being desecrated and turned into a "den of...

  • Big Bruins and Little Kings: Surviving Montana's Winters

    Mike Ebinger|Apr 13, 2023

    For warm-blooded animals, the ability to maintain relatively constant body temperatures, called “homeothermy”, is critical to life. Regardless of outside temperatures, body temperatures must be maintained within a relatively narrow range. When outside temperatures drop below internal temperatures, body heat is lost. To counteract this heat loss, animals may increase heat production (increasing fuel), decrease heat loss (improving insulation), or lower internal temperature needs (adjusting the thermostat). Biologists refer to these res...

Total votes for the entire district (Seeley Lake, Swan Valley and Sunset combined) were 161 for and 172 against the levy. Joe Anders, New Chairman At Seeley...

  • Deep soil frost may not be only culprit for frozen pipes

    Asa Thomas Metcalfe|Apr 13, 2023

    Water lines in the Seeley Lake area have been freezing solid quite late this year, but it's not so much from a change in weather as it is from a change in the town's population. Although the Seeley Lake soil has been known to freeze pipes from November to April, the last few years have been especially bad, and the culprit might not be as simple as the weather. According to Vincent Chappell, the district manager for Montana Rural Water Systems (WRWS), the biggest problem affecting local water...

  • Holy Cross Lutheran hosts celebrates first night of Passover

    Asa Thomas Metcalfe|Apr 13, 2023

    Passover began on Thursday April 6, and the Holy Cross Lutheran in Seeley Lake hosted a Seder Dinner to commemorate the Jewish tradition and recognize its place in Christian belief. The Passover Seder is an annual tradition that marks the beginning of Passover, a week observing the freeing of the Jews from Egyptian slavery and the plagues which God passed down upon the Egyptians to punish them. Passover particularly pays homage to the final plague, when God sent the angel of death to take the...
