To hook to the sewer or not

SEELEY LAKE - If you have been unable to attend a sewer meeting since November 2018, you will never know what has gone on if you read the notes taken at the meetings.  They do not give you any detailed information.  I know the past president made...

Medicaid expansion lacks real compassion

Why should someone who works and cannot afford insurance pay for the insurance of someone else who does not work at all? Continuing to fund Medicaid Expansion with tax revenue from Montana's struggling workers lacks real compassion. Try not to...

It's high time for us to protect the Blackfoot for future generations

Ensure Medicaid Expansion continues

Neither snow nor rain nor heat but your address must be complete

New Green Deal

As a conservative, I am used to Liberal Democrats accusing me, or the people I vote for as: sexist, bigoted, misogynist, racist, xenophobe, homophobe, climate denier, hater and dumb. I admit, I don’t know what some of those big words mean, but I...

 

New policy is a problem at Seeley Lake Post Office

SEELEY LAKE - The problem with the local US Post Office in Seeley Lake is that the current postmaster has installed a policy of returning any letters or packages that do not have a post office box number in the address. This is against the Montana...

More history on the Seeley Lake Biathlon

SEELEY LAKE - I thought that I would expand just a bit on your article from last week as to the history of the Seeley Lake Biathlon. Having a biathlon was the brain child of Lynn Carey. He spoke of the fun of participating in such a race out of...

Fact checking the Seeley Lake sewer

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...

SEELEY LAKE – My name is Pat Goodover. I was elected as president of the Seeley Lake Sewer Board. I want to introduce myself to you and reach out to you. There is a lot of confusion and some anger about the sewer plans. There are also some...

 

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