People of Vision improve healthcare

Right now there is a national conversation about health care in America. And without the ability to predict the future, many wonder what outcomes we will be facing in the next year, or even in the next months or days. But one thing I can speak to, is what we have right now and how we might make the best of the critical health care resources we have today. We know that Indian people don’t have good health care because of systemic failures in the agencies and organizations responsible for providing this care. But what we are blessed with in our community, that makes it possible to overcome this systemic failure, is vision. The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal seal i...

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one most adaptable to change.” - Charles Darwin Darwin’s words are resonating with me today. Actually, for the last two months, my staff and I have spent a lot of time worrying about ...

School choice important for right fit

Editor, I would like to thank Sen. Dan Salomon of Ronan and Rep. Greg Hertz of Polson for giving up their time to give the Mission Valley Christian Academy U.S. history class a tour of the state senate and representative chambers. Thank you for answering all of our questions on how the legislative branch ...


Collecting liberal tears

Editor, I think its time to call a whhhaaambulance filled with French Cries for all the folks who are sobbing so uncontrollably about our President and the election — stat. I was so proud of the profanity-laced tirades that went on at the Women’s March in Washington — not. Wanting to blo...


Church blessed to share

Editor, The Ronan Seventh-Day Adventist Church Soup-er Bowl No. 8 was as exciting as Tom Brady’s performance in the 51st NFL Super Bowl. The Jackson Jackies, for the second year in a row, defeated the Adam’s Anteaters. A total of 4,650 units of soup were collected for the Ronan Bread Basket...


Don’t choose abortion

Editor, I applaud the efforts of recent writers to voice their opinion that women’s healthcare is important. Everyone deserves healthcare, whether man, woman, child, young or old. Everyone should be able to get the care they need. But we must draw the line when what we do infringes upon another&r...


One tear left?

Editor, I wonder if the lady who wrote “Tears shed for different reasons” might have just one tear left to shed for one of the 60 million babies murdered by abortion in the past 44 years? Stan Kangas Dixon  


Anti-Sharia law necessary

Editor, It is shocking to read the comments in opposition to Montana’s SB97, prohibiting the application of foreign laws into Montana courts. Those speaking in opposition at the senate hearings on the bill show that they are extremely naïve or uninformed. Two years ago there were 146 cases i...
