  • Holland Lake Lodge expansion receives little support

    Gwyneth Hyndman, Interim Editor|Nov 24, 2022

    By Gwyneth Hyndman A proposed expansion of Holland Lake Lodge is not in the best interest of the public, has had a flawed public comment process, and the master development plan from Park City, Utah-based group POWDR has numerous inaccuracies, lacks essential information and ultimately should be denied, the Seeley Lake Community Council and about 15 members of the public heard on Monday night, Nov. 14, at the council's regular meeting. The presentation was made by members of the Save Holland...

    Jean Pocha, Pathfinder Staff|Nov 24, 2022

    By Jean Pocha "It would be unprofessional to taste that," said local auctioneer Kevin Ertl as a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake was paraded by him at the Annual Sew and Sew Club Harvest Dinner held in the Ovando Gym on Nov. 12. "People helping people is our motto," said Angela Williams, Sew and Sew Club President. "There's no sewing involved these days; the Harvest Dinner is our annual fundraiser. Funds are used to help community members in need and to address local community needs. We...

    Gwyneth Hyndman, Interim Editor|Nov 24, 2022

    By Gwyneth Hyndman Mike Lindemer, owner of Lindy’s RV Dump Station told the public and members of the Seeley Lake Community Council last Monday night, Nov. 14, that he offers a service that helps the community succeed. “That’s my opinion,” Lindemer said, adding that there were “multiple rumors” going around about the dump site, including one that Lindemer had a refuse pipe running down into the lake, which he said was not true. Lindemer, who was on the agenda at the council meeting, said he wanted to clarify that his site was approved by...

  • ROCKS rocks winter season

    Garry Swain, ROCKS President|Nov 24, 2022

    Snow and cold weather brought an early start to the winter outdoor activities season here in Seeley Lake. The ROCKS team is in high gear helping the Nordic ski group ready the yurt for the cross country skiing season and getting the ice skating rink ready for flooding. It doesn't seem like a coincidence that I'm writing this just as Thanksgiving descends upon a snowy white Seeley Lake, because this year I'm feeling especially thankful about many things, not the least of which is the Canadian...

  • Multi-Modal Pain Control

    Tanya Fyfe DVM, Associate veterinarian at Clark Fork Veterinary Clinic|Nov 24, 2022

    If you have senior pets with arthritis or pets with chronic medical conditions, your veterinarian may have suggested one or more different ways to mediate discomfort. A combination of medications, treatments and therapies used together to moderate pain is called "multi-modal pain control" and is very common in today's veterinary practices. In general, most painful conditions are treated initially with oral medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories like Carprofen or Previcox,...

  • The beauty of winter is not lost when relaxing

    Gwyneth Hyndman, Interim Editor|Nov 24, 2022

    Our house is dark on this cold November night, and by the soft glow of cheap, supermarket candles I've lit along the bookshelves, I can watch the snow fall. Every year I forget how mesmerizing it is, to just lay on the couch and follow the slow, gentle descent of white flakes outside the windows, as Gabe the dog snores at my feet, an open book resting on my stomach. I have my husband's good bourbon, my kids' Halloween candy, and the final pages of our book club choice, Daisy Jones & The Six....

  • The river in winter

    Chuck Stranahan, Flyfishing Journal|Nov 24, 2022

    "A River Never Sleeps" is a simple but profound pronouncement; Roderick Haig-Brown wrote that phrase as the title of what many consider his best book. No other angling author captures the essence of fly fishing in words as Haig-Brown did. Some might grab it for a sequence of phrases, a paragraph or an entire passage; none did it as well as Haig-Brown for the length of an entire book. He wrote from a sense of intimacy with his home river, the Campbell on Victoria Island in British Columbia. The...

  • One in Christ

    Dale Terrillion, Christian Logger|Nov 24, 2022

    I was thinkin' the other day how well the wife and I got along spiritually. We both agree that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, that the Bible is the ultimate truth and God inspired. No if, ands, buts or maybes. The only Church she attended as a young girl was Methodist. And I was raised Catholic. There will be no argument in this house about what denomination is right and which one wrong. From what I can see there's good in all and some bad in all. We're dealin' with human beings here....
