POLSON — The first five days after the weekend are the hardest. And this week proved that - snow, ice and more of the above. Still, look at what the rest of the country is getting and realize that we live in a pretty special place. More people than usual came last Thursday for Wanda’s meatloaf du...


DIXON — Does this 40-plus degree weather, blue skies, and winter thaw give you early Spring fever? This has been a real Montana winter ... I am fortunate to be retired and able to hibernate most of the time. I do appreciate going to the Dixon Senior Center to interact with people. You can come to Di...

Arlee joins tribal officer staff

ARLEE — So much for welcoming February. Tonight as I write this for the Feb. 8 issue of the Valley Journal, the temperature is -1 degree. Brrrr. Tonight it would be wise to leave a faucet dripping and keep a cupboard door under the sink open. We’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day anyway, Feb. ...


RONAN — Well, I guess we get six more weeks of winter. Big surprise. Hopefully, it will warm up a lot. Everyone seems to be tired of the cold. Don’t forget that our Thursday evening meal is this week. We will have a great chicken dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. The cost is only $5 per person. ...

RONAN — Well, I’m back. I don’t know what hit me, but I wouldn’t wish it on anybody. Thanks, Auggie for filling in for me. Here we are into February already. It sure seems like January went by in a hurry. Aren’t the longer daylight hours nice? Now, if it would just warm up. N...

Arlee joins tribal officer staff

ARLEE — A happy goodbye to January. It lasted much too long this year. A big welcome goes to February along with wishes for a Happy Valentine’s Day. Our center is making it an occasion with a special dinner the second Saturday evening of February. We will begin that day with our traditional Valen...


POLSON — I always hold the door open for a clown; it’s a nice jester. One little piggie went to the senior center on Jan. 8 between 10- noon with a good idea so they followed. Then they all had chef salad for dinner. Sorry, only ten piggies to a customer. We have to draw the line somewhere. Ju...
