Shirley Azzopardi for HD 93

 Editor, Shirley and John have two adult children who graduated from St. Ignatius, and during that time Shirley was using her University of Montana degree teaching special education in the St. Ignatius School District for 28 years.

Cooperative problem solving 2. Listening skills 3. Educator skills 4. Giving a voice to Montanans who are not heard 5. A sincere heart to do what is right for all communities in Lake County  As a resident of Flathead Indian Reservation in Lake...


We choose how to face challenges

Editor, Our nation is presently going through a very present political crisis. This crisis is a clear example of the outworking of our human frailties. These frailties involve anger, attack, and blaming others for our own fears in life.  Our nation went through, and continues to go through, these ...


Consider Azzopardi

Editor, Shirley Azzopardi is a candidate for HD 93 which includes Ronan, Charlo, Arlee, Moise and parts of St. Ignatius. We couldn’t ask for a better representative than Shirley. We are all tired of the politicians who really don’t listen to their constituents. They continue to preach about...


Slices of Life

I had been outside since 5:45 a.m., in 50-degree drizzle. My feet were soaked despite several changes of socks.

View from the Library

Fall has finally arrived.  We love summer, but we are happy for cooler temperatures, pumpkin everything, and curling up with a good book and a cup of tea. Saturday, Sept. 17 we have Ranger Matt from Glacier National Park coming to talk about the different types of work National Park Rangers do and wh...


Slices of Life

As we traverse through life, I think most of us ponder and wonder about our purpose - the reason for our experience on the planet at this particular time. What is the meaning of life? What is the meaning of me? (Gulp.) I’ve pondered this question quite a bit, feeling a little inept in my answers. I ...


Vote no

  Editor, You gotta love our Legislature - they make Houdini look like Bozo the Clown. Most recently they introduced, for your vote this coming election, the Born-Alive Protection Act, an anti-abortion provision intended to change our state constitution from allowing to prohibiting a woman’s...


Monica represents

Editor, If a Republican was ever going to vote for a Democrat, Montana’s HD 1 is the race. Monica Tranel is about representing all Montanans, not just the Rs or the Ds. As a lawyer, Monica has a track record of fighting hard for working Montanans and has a proven record of taking on corporate monopo...
