Letters to the editor Jan. 8, 2020

Pedestrians asked to be careful  Editor,   Have you ever almost hit a pedestrian while driving? I have and I hope you never do. It scared me to think that I could have injured or killed a person. It was horrifying. I was driving to work early one dark-winter morning on a snow-covered road in Lake County. I was concentrating on an oncoming car. The snow magnified the headlight glare from both cars.  When the road is covered with snow, it is difficult to tell where the middle and edge of the road are. I was watching the car to make sure I was far enough away from the middle of the road for us to pass safely. As the car came closer to passing, I suddenly caught ...


Political problem needs to be discussed

Editor,   President Trump seems to be ramping up his base towards a nasty revolution if he is either impeached or loses the next election. It seems prudent that we talk openly about this possibility, given Trump’s rants, language, rallies and behavior. There are many people in our nation who...


Political action needed

Editor, Identifying and addressing the root cause of our present dangerous political divisiveness is essential in my opinion.  I think the root cause of our national divisiveness is grounded in a rather common yet dangerous human response to problems. In living our lives, there are always problems...


Questioning national spirituality

Editor, I have been reading through the books of the prophets in the Old Testament. I can’t help but ask myself a question. Is our nation today as spiritually bankrupt as Israel was then? Habakkuk 1:4 and 3:2 says “... the law is slacked, and judgment (justice) doth never go forth: for the ...


Thanks PPP for a great show

Editor, Bravo and kudos to the Port Polson Players for presenting an uplifting, timeless play, “The Beggars’ Bounty,” to our community. With the darkest days of the year approaching, this heartfelt musical comedy offered respite and a message filled with light and hope. The talented a...


Resolution supports water compact

Editor, A resolution in support of the CSKT-Montana Water Compact originated in July at the Lake County Conservation District with full support of the members. It then advanced to the Area 5 October meeting. After receiving approval at the area meeting, it advanced to the state-wide meeting in Kalispell. ...


Vote no on tax increases

Editor,  School District 23 voters are being asked to approve over $61 million in school improvements to be repaid over 25 years. This ballot has been delivered to you in the last week or so.  Additionally, Lake County voters will be asked in January 2020 to approve $50 million for county law...


Support Polson School District bond

Editor,  Strong public schools are the cornerstone of a successful community. Whether or not you work for the school or have a child in the district, our entire community is better when the quality of education is improved across the board. Improvements that will be made from the passage of both Pols...


Vote for school bond, improved safety for students

Editor, I have been a member of the Polson community for over 40 years and have been impressed by the positive support shown for our school system.   When I came to Polson as a teacher in 1976, our high school was just two years old, the old high school was our middle school, the Lincoln building ...

There is no charge for this meal, and those unable to attend may have a meal delivered to them. Advanced notice for delivery must be given by calling 406-883-4735. This fr...
