In response to "Repent and turn from wicked ways" in last week's Pathfinder

We all have our opinions. The hate you speak of - is that the same that you feel for the Democrats and those Republicans who are standing up for our Constitution of the United States of America? Do you really want our country to be ruled by a “king...

Thank You Senator Daines for the Water Rights Protection Act

Repent and turn from wicked ways

The Democrats, the mainstream media and some Republicans have brought shame to the United States of America because of their hate for our President Donald Trump. Our President has exposed the evil of the deep state swamp and they hate him for it....

 

Thank Senator Tester for Alzheimer's support

There are 21,000 Montanans living with Alzheimer’s disease, which is a growing public health crisis that threatens to bankrupt America. In 2019, caring for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias cost an estimated $290 billion. Tha...

 

Join me in the March for Life 2020

Life is something everyone reading this has. Where did it begin? Many of us wonder, many of us trust it is from God, and most of us can agree that it is sacred. I’d like to write briefly of what this means to me and invite you to come pray for...

Fun the popular "Restore Our Parks Act"

Montana’s national parks are some of the best in the country, but they desperately need repairs. Parks across our county, like those in Montana, are facing unreliable funding, record visitation and aging infrastructure. That’s why I am...

 

Actual cost estimates needed for worst case scenario

SEELEY LAKE - The so-called “worst case scenario” monthly estimate for the sewer project? Yes, that is the worst case scenario for me, a resident in Phase 1. The following is part of a letter I sent to the Seeley Lake Sewer District Board Sept....

 

Many questions that deserve answers

SEELEY LAKE - I was sorry to have missed the sewer board meeting Thursday night due to an out of town trip. However, I heard Friday morning that it is going to be $130 per month per hook up. We probably won’t go broke with this fee but it is going...

 

Daines & Gianforte Must Take Immediate Action on CSKT Compact

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe (CSKT) Water Compact took over a decade to negotiate with water users on and off with the CSKT nation. The CSKT will protect the rights of water users across Montana. It passed the Montana Legislature with b...

 

Next governor will determine fate of public lands

Montanans, it’s time to pay attention. In 2020, the person we elect to be our next governor will determine the fate of our public lands. On the ballot for governor of the state of Montana next year is mega-millionaire Greg Gianforte. He’s...

 

Common sense please

I’d like to congratulate John Rice on his letter “Reopen National Forest Roads” run in the Nov. 7 issue of the Seeley Swan Pathfinder. He hit the nail on the head with a four-pound hammer. I lived for a short time near Thompson Falls and...

 

Stand beside Trump and fight the swamp animals

Trump said when he got elected he would drain the swamp. He got duly elected by the American people. President Trump then began to drain the swamp. When you drain the swamp, the swamp animals are exposed. Adam Schiff reminds me of a swamp alligator,...

Regarding the Elbow Lake Weir

ELBOW LAKE - There are so many things to love about the people and places around Elbow Lake. But in 1970, when our family bought 160 acres and an old homestead cabin from one of the early residents, what impressed us most was how business was often...

Thank you Daines and Tester - Where are you, Gianforte?

It is a breath of fresh air when members of congress put partisanship aside and work across the aisle. I applaud Republican Senator Daines and Democratic Senator Tester for championing the reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund...

Missoula policies do not fit healthy rural economy

Commissioner Josh Slotniks’ suggestion that Seeley Lake create a Business Improvement District suggests a certain naivete, or to use a football metaphor, a rookie mistake. Seeley’s business community seems fine. That we have to commute to...

 

DNRC & FWP need to engage Elbow Lake landowners towards a solution

ELBOW LAKE - I am a leaseholder at Elbow Lake, responding to the draft Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding the proposed removal of the Elbow Lake “dam” (more accurately “weir”). My lot is situated below the weir, so I may be personally...

 

EIS is needed for proposed Elbow Lake weir removal

ELBOW LAKE - This letter is a response to the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) of the proposed removal and remediation of Elbow Lake Dam. The project title itself is a contradiction to the proposal because the title refers to the name of what the...

 

Vote B.S.

Hell yes I am going to vote for Bernie Sanders!! He is going to give me free medical, free dental, free housing. B.S. is going to buy me a new car – free, free, free! Meals on Wheels will pull up to my door free times a day – but wait, if you...

 

DNRC and FWP not following MEPA guidelines

ELBOW LAKE - I have been camping, fishing, floating and boating on Elbow Lake since 1977. In 2001, we acquired a DNRC lease on Elbow Lake. It was a dream come true. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be part of this area and the Elbow Lake e...

 

Response to Montana DNRC's proposed removal and remediation of Elbow Lake dam

Our family is one of over 20 that own a cabin on Elbow Lake. Although we have been owners for only a few years, many families have had cabins on the Lake for decades. Our family has come to love this beautiful portion of the Clearwater River...

 

Setting the story straight - The Water District and Sewer District are separate

I just want to set the story straight once and for all. The Water District’s name and my name in particular keeps being brought up at the Sewer District’s meetings as well as in the newspaper in regards to the proposed sewer project. A couple...
