    Derek Hann|Updated Aug 1, 2018

    A Dodson dog rescue is handling an influx of dogs from Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, but the rescue’s founder said it is dealing with an issue that shouldn’t exist. “Dog roundups are not the answer to a dog overpopulation,” founder of RezQ Dogs Anita Wilke said. “It’s not a dog population problem, it’s a people problem.” Recently, Fort Belknap’s tribal council announced tribal officials would be dealing with stray dogs on the reservation by, capturing or shooting them, Wilke said. She added that this will not solve th...

I want the American public to know that closure for these families cannot be measured. You, as president, have given them a gift that surpasses anything one c...

  • Letter to the editor - Support the Affordable Care Act

    Updated Aug 1, 2018

    Editor, Before Montana’s Medicaid, my dad lived without health insurance. I grew up watching him be unable to take or even get his medications because we couldn’t afford them.

Montana’s Medicaid, which expanded under the ACA, allowed him to get health insurance for the first time. Without CHIP, I would have grown up without health insurance, too. I’m thankfu...

Though Corona is brewed in Mexico, much of it is made from barley imported from the Big Sky State. But today this important market is at risk because of the irresponsible trade war threatening Montana agriculture. Because of tariffs and all the uncertainty in American trade, Mexican breweries are now turning elsewhere for their barley. For decades, Montana farmers and ranchers worked tirelessly to ga...
