    MATT GOURAS Associated Press|Updated Sep 17, 2013

    HELENA (AP) — A federal judge has ruled Montana's requirement that political committees disclose their campaign spending is constitutional.

The case stems from a lawsuit filed last year by the National Association for Gun Rights. The Virginia organization argued it w... Full story

    Ken and Marlene Hanning|Updated Sep 17, 2013

    My husband was recently a patient at Northern Montana Hospital. Aug. 12 we entered the ER with him in acute distress, fearing the worst. The efficient, well-trained staff took over.
