Leter to the Editor: Vote for Rob Quist

I thought that the Republican Party was big on saving tax dollars and against rigged elections. Well, talk is cheap. Look what happened last week in the Motnana Legislature. A majority of Republicans voted against the measure to allow an all-mail...

 

Leter to the Editor: Quist will make a great congressman

My nephew, Chris Krager, the director of a homeless shelter in Kalispell and a musician who has played bass for Rob Quist over the span of the last 22 years, told us, “Having played music and traveled Montana over the years with Rob Quist, I have...

 

Leter to the Editor: Quist is sample of Montana courage

Editor, The biggest issue of the Montana special election is the Montana mail-in ballot. Risking defeat by doing the right thing is the very definition of courageous. And in this case what’s right was profoundly clear, unequivocal and laid...

 

Leter to the Editor: Gianforte has proven track record

Editor, We have a job opening for the person best-qualified to represent Montana in the hugely important position of U.S. congressman. As such, he must speak for all Americans, not just Montanans. He must not only have insight into state and...

 

Leter to the Editor: Gianforte best choice

Greg Gianforte, a devout family man, moved to Montana decades ago and founded a company that evolved to develop high-tech $90,000 jobs. When his growing company had a shortage of skilled labor, he started a scholarship to encourage Montana students...

 

Leter to the Editor: Stand with Quist and he will stand with us

Editor, I am writing in support of Rob Quist to fill the vacant seat in the U.S House. Although I am not a native Montanan, I feel I have met and spoken to enough Montanans to get an idea of the independent, can-do spirit that makes this state...

 

Letter to the Editor: Update on flag Eagle Scout project

I would like to give an update on my Eagle Scout Project that was in the Havre Daily News Dec. 30, 2016. My project was to place drop boxes in several locations where old American flags can be dropped off and then be retired at a...

Leter to the Editor: Montanans shouldn't vote blindly

Editor, Why not vote for Gianforte? Both candidates wear cowboy hats, but there is nothing of significance under Gianforte’s hat, just another rich guy trying to buy a political seat. We have a candidate in Rob Quist who has traveled the state as...

 

Leter to the Editor: Is Montana congressional seat for sale?

Editor, In following our current congression-al contest closely one must question — is this Montana office for sale to the highest bidder? Rob Quist’s opponent and backers are once again spending millions trying to buy another Montana...

Letter to the Editor: Learn how to support children's organ transplants

Dear Editor: The Children’s Organ Transplant Association was founded in April 1986 when residents of Bloomington, Indiana, rallied around a toddler who needed a life-saving liver transplant. In less than eight weeks, the community raised $100,000...

 

SB155: An out-of-state overreach

Editor, Senate Bill 155 is an egregious overreach by out-of-state groups to take local control from Montanans. This bill would change Montana seed laws and take away power from the hands of our local officials, which is where it has been for decades...

 

A thank you for Sen. Tester's courageous opposition to Gorsuch

In 2012 the People of Montana, by a supermajority, adopted CI-166, (codified as §§ 13-35-501-504), which requires this State’s Congressional delegation to support the adoption of a Constitutional Amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s i...

 

Repealing Obamacare shows no right to life

Editor: Republicans, like Greg Gianforte, say they are all about a “right to life.” But their recent efforts to repeal Obamacare prove how dishonest they are. The recent plan to replace Obamacare that Trump and congressional Republicans proposed...

 

Letter to the Editor: Hill County 4-H looks for interest in Chuckwagon work

Editor, In moving forward with our new 4-H Chuckwagon facility, we want to see how much interest we have from any parties, tradesmen or contractors who are willing to help in all areas of construction. We will be having a 50-foot by 140-foot metal bu...

 

Letter to the Editor: Don't punish us for getting old

Editor, I am a resident in a nursing home in Eureka. I am very worried about my quality of care as the government wants to reduce our Medicaid for long-term care. I have multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and arthritis in my knees and hands, and I can’t...

 

Letter to the Editor: Veto Senate Bill 155

As Montana farmers, we grow a huge variety of food. Our counties differ vastly in size, climate and soil. But one thing is consistent for all producers: Not one of our 56 counties has ever regulated our seeds. So why does Senate Bill 155 exist? In...

 

Tell Congress to oppose president's cuts to community learning centers

Editor, The recent budget proposal from the White House included a shocker: The president wants to eliminate the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative, the main federal funding stream for afterschool programs. More astonishing was the...

 

Ask legislators to vote against Richmond's petroleum bill

Call to revive ending daylight saving time

Editor, Let us not give up on Senate Bill 206, which has been tabled. Call the Legislators and ask them to reconsider passing this bill. Daylight saving time needs to be abolished. It does a lot more harm than it does good. Call in at once....

 

Quist good for singing, Gianforte good for Congress

Editor, We enthusiastically support Greg Gianforte for Congress, urging Montana voters to elect him to the House of Representatives in the special election on May 25th. We also urge Montana voters to not be deceived by the Democratic Party...

 

Tell Gianforte to buy a razor, not a House seat

Editor, Greg Gianforte’s ads and website show him with about a week’s worth of beard growth. My guess is that some big-money-funded focus group showed that voters thought that the week of stubble made Gianforte look more rugged or common. I can...

 

Tester, what has changed with Gorsuch?

Sen. Jon Tester, In 2006 the United States Senate unanimously confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to a seat on the federal 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, without dissent or criticism. Please inform Montana what Judge Gorsuch has done since 2006 to cause you...
