    Sondra Ashton|Updated Mar 29, 2024

    Michelle’s mother, and our friend, fell and broke her other hip. Jane is 96 years old. It was only three or four years ago that Jane fell and broke a hip. Wasn’t easy but she recovered. Surgery is extremely high risk for this woman. It was risky then and is even more so now. Jane has been in the hospital several days, waiting while certain medicines leach out of her body. Surgery is not our only worry. Our small hospital, which we are fortunate to have, is staffed by exc...

  • A letter to the citizens of Montana about SB 442

    Updated Mar 29, 2024

    County commissioners from across Montana appreciate the widespread support that Senate Bill 442 enjoyed throughout its legislative process. Marijuana revenues are new to Montana, and the bill’s thoughtful distribution of this higher-than-expected new revenue stream included some funding for county roads. Bipartisan and impactful legislation backed by such a wide variety of Montanans is a rarity, and we commend Senator Lang and the bill’s many proponents for their efforts. Even after Gov. Gianforte exercised his right to vet...

  • A respectful response from Sen. Lang on arguments about SB 442

    Updated Mar 29, 2024

    The separation of powers among the three co-equal branches of government are essential; and I agree that no branch should be able to overreach it’s bounds. I want to tell you why this overreach is not happening with SB 442! In Montana, our Constitution does not allow the Executive branch to have the final say over bills adopted by the Montana Legislature, which is the Senate and House of Representatives collectively. The ongoing dispute regarding SB 442 is about preserving the separation of powers. The Executive branch exerci...

  • Out Our Way: Homeward bound

    Updated Mar 29, 2024

    Luke 24:13-35 Out our way, that final trip back to the table and the fresh hay, grain and water is an amazing journey. After hours of heat, and often cold, being baked dry - or soaking wet - both horse and rider are worn out. Doc and I both tended to droop a good deal as we finished checking the fence, herd, and pushing some stray youngsters back towards mama. I have shared before that sensation that comes when, barely able to keep moving, we crossed that last ridge and saw...

    In John 19:30, Jesus declared: "It is finished." This was a declaration of a mighty, mighty victory. From that day forward, these final words from the cross would serve to change history. First of all: A mission was accomplished In John 17:4, Jesus states to God, His Father, that He was "finishing the work that you gave me to do." Obviously, there was much more to Jesus' time on earth than what meets the eye. The statement "It is finished" means that Jesus accomplished His...

  • From the Fringe … Spring has sprung, and it's about time

    George Ferguson|Updated Mar 29, 2024

    There really is nothing like the end of winter in Havre and on the Hi-Line. Sure, it can, and will still snow, and it will still get cold up there from time to time. But anyone who lives, or has lived, in Havre can attest that the return of spring just means more to us then it does to many people across the country. It means more because winter’s, mild or rough, are long and exhausting in Havre, and in most of Montana. And when you finally see that light at the end of the tunn...
