Confusion reigned in dog conflict

SEELEY LAKE - This is to help clarify the recent letter by Mike McGrew titled “No Dogs Allowed” concerning conflict with dog owners printed in the Jan. 24 issue of the Seeley Swan Pathfinder. The misinformation leading to the situation was an exa...

 

Fact checking the Seeley Lake sewer

SEELEY LAKE – As you all know, I resigned from the Seeley Lake Sewer Board for multiple reasons. I couldn’t sit on a corrupt board that told lies to the people of Seeley Lake for years. The time I did serve I was bullied by the former president a...

If you got'em, light'em

SEELEY LAKE - That’s what our sergeant always said announcing break time in Army basic training.  It’s not 2017 but there is still some concern about smoke in our area. I live about a mile downwind of the air quality monitor. The photo above...

 

No dogs allowed

SEELEY LAKE - One of the best things about skiing in Seeley and being involved with the Nordic Club and the kids’ program is the people I get to meet. Those who are skiing have fun, are grateful for the Club keeping the trails in good shape and the...

 

An inspirational family

Dirty politics is not the way it has to be

I had the honor of serving as Lee Bridges’ campaign manager and the great pleasure of meeting many of you in House District 92 this summer and fall. A scurrilous ad paid for by Mike Davis, slandering Ms. Bridges, was published in The Pathfinder on...

 

Solutions rather than rhetoric

If there’s one thing Montanans can unite behind, it’s that we’re sick and tired of self-serving politicians who are all talk, no walk. As the House Minority Leader for the 2019 Legislative Session, I couldn’t agree more. Montana families...

 

A change is needed

Thank God a group of Republican legislators have taken the initiative to rid Montana House of Representatives of a 30-year supermajority experiment that has contributed to hyper-partisanship disdained by most of Montana's citizens. The Montana consti...

 

Let's talk about the sewer

Montana citizens are better served by returning to Simple Majority rules in the House

Too often we see the results of gridlock and partisan shenanigans in Washington DC. Efforts are focused solely on beating the other side, and not on representing the people in passing budgets and...

 

Thank you volunteers

Thank you Greenough/Potomac QRU and all Emergency Responders: Our Greenough/Potomac Volunteer Fire Department (GPVFD) and Quick Response Unit (QRU) volunteers are always available for their community. They deserve high five, thumbs up, pat on the...

 

Thoughts on the NRA

Several weeks ago I saw a little geek standing on a street corner with a sign that said “NRA, NRA how many children have you killed today?” CNN evidently picked up on this and had him on TV. I go back to the year 1935 – I quote Adolph Hitler,...

 

Thank you for the help

This letter of thanks goes out to the five men and three women, along with two Missoula County Sheriff’s Deputies for rendering me aid on Highway 200 Dec. 11, 2018 after my vehicle broke down from overheating and stopped running. The first man who...

 

Appointed citizens group could review sewer options

SEELEY LAKE - As a resident of the Sewer District (Dogtown) I try to stay informed and considered applying to fill the vacant board seat. I didn’t, due to other long standing commitments on the same night as the board meetings. I then heard that...

 

Start behaving yourselves

SEELEY LAKE - The community voted two-to-one to replace three of five Sewer Board members. Two of the new members quit out of frustration, leaving the other neutralized. The will of the community wanted an attitude change. That will has been...

 

Thank you House District 92

US Bank needs to rethink "Simple Loans"

US Bank sells “Simple Loans” with 70-88 percent interest in Montana. People take these loans to buy snow tires, cover a mortgage payment, or pay medical bills. Montana law caps predatory payday loans at 36 percent interest. But federally-insured...

 

Customers vote with their wallets

SEELEY LAKE - I am so glad that the main street businesses in Seeley Lake are booming. Profits are so high that business owners can afford to alienate huge percentages of their customers by endorsing one political candidate over another and supportin...

 

Need to pull our head out of the sand and respond

If the United States of America was being attacked by air or by sea, we and our military would immediately respond to protect our sovereign nation. Our military needs to also respond to the invasion of the caravans coming by land to our border. We kn...

 

Thank you to the Seeley Lake community and surrounding areas

Back on Oct. 11 my daughter, her friend and her friend’s mother were involved in a car accident in Missoula. Their injuries were severe and the recovery will be long. We personally want to thank everyone who expressed their concern. We are truly...

Vote for Mike Hopkins - A proven performer

I am not generally that politically active but this year I feel compelled to react to House District 92’s race between Lee Bridges and Mike Hopkins. Some political views between the two are similar. Woman’s rights and reproductive rights, job...

 

Getting things done for House District 92

In addition to helping write and pass a responsible, balanced budget, fighting against the $300 million in tax increases that will be proposed next session and passing property tax relief for Montana Seniors, there are a number of other topics we...

 

Violence and politics – Stochastic terrorism

Anger and fear have come to dominate American politics since 2016. Sadly, American politicians are capitalizing on anger and fear in order to manipulate voters and garner support. I touched on this in my admonishment to House District 92 Republican...
