    Updated Mar 25, 2021

  • Letter to the Editor - Why do legislators want to privatize schools?

    Updated Mar 25, 2021

    Editor, How can 57 Republican legislators support a bill to privatize schools in Montana, House Bill 329? They agree with this bill, requested by the Governor, who has a big stake in an exclusive private school, and would benefit from school privatization. Montana will become a regulatory nightmare if this bill passes, especially with regard to the education of our children. This bill is likely unconstitutional. Which agency will regulate the giveaway to rich people who want to start their own school? With no regulation of...

  • Looking out my backdoor: The future is dark, which is the best …

    Sondra Ashton|Updated Mar 25, 2021

    True Montanans fully understand Virginia Woolf’s expression that “The future is dark, which is the best thing the future can be, I think.” We are trained from early times to know that sunny days won’t last, that rains likely fall when the hay is down in windrows, that ants infest every picnic. Not necessarily gloomy, but realistic. We are taught thusly. Here’s a different slant, OK. What I have come to believe, and Woolf’s quote fits perfectly, is that if we could see through...

  • Vaccination is the ticket to getting the U.S. back on track

    Updated Mar 25, 2021

    The end of the pandemic in the U.S. is in sight. The COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have proven to be outstandingly effective at protecting recipients from coronavirus and they are also safe. These vaccines — and the potential of others on the way — have the power to lift us out of the depths of this pandemic and put us on the path forward to rebuilding from COVID-19’s devastating economic, social, and psychological impacts. Put simply, getting America vaccinated is our ticket to halting the death...

  • The free money game: When will Republicans wise up?

    Updated Mar 25, 2021

    Every election cycle, you can count on Republican candidates promising to reduce the size and cost of government, and in general, getting government out of our businesses and out of our daily lives. Yet as every session of the legislature demonstrates, that pledge — for the majority of Republican lawmakers — has a distinctly hollow ring. Not unlike their Democratic counterparts, the GOP’s commitment to controlling government and reducing welfare dependency is highly selective. For their friends, the free money game conti...

  • Blue Pony tennis excited to be back on the court

    Havre Daily News Staff|Updated Mar 25, 2021

    Havre Daily News Staff Coaching tennis isn't something Havre High head man George Ferguson does for a couple months a year. For the last 19 years, it's been a way of life. So imagine how he felt when the 2020 season was called off due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, though, it wasn't his feelings he was concerned with. No, Ferguson felt for his tennis teams, and for spring sports athletes all over Montana. "It was something I still haven't gotten...
