Pay attention, speak up

Editor, Did you know, that as soon as the government got back up and running, the government sent over a million dollars to Pakistan? I cannot believe we are willing to take money away from the poor in the United States such as the reduction in food stamps, but we have enough to send to another country. Well, people, that is our great government for you. We are in debt up to our ears and then some, but we cannot let anyone know how unstable our government is at this moment. It is too bad the shutdown did not last longer, because had we defaulted, the government would not have had the money to give to Pakistan.  We borrow money from the Federal Reserve to keep the Federal Governme...


Work positively with inevitable change

Editor, We must admit that America is undergoing huge changes such as: Climate, manufacturing base, shrinking middle class, family structures, church attendance, and big money influence on politics. But probably one of the most challenging and divisive changes is our changing demographics. Demographic ...


Thanks, but no thanks

Editor, Finally, Mr. John Carter of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes has let the “feral cat” out of the bag, for all to see.  This “negotiated” Water Compact for the Flathead Indian Reservation has never been about Federal Reserved Water Rights based on the purpose ...


Disharmony results in higher fees

Editor, On Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 I received my property tax statement along with a letter from the Jocko Valley and Mission Irrigation Districts as well as the other people who also irrigate their land every summer here on the reservation. I was shocked to read in the letter that the Jocko Valley Irriga...


Compact, water use agreement good deal

Editor, Don’t be fooled by the hysteria being promoted by opponents of the Flathead Reservation Compact and Water Use Agreement (WUA). Many of these anti-government, anti-Indian opponents are not irrigators, and many are new arrivals to the Mission Valley and Flathead Indian Reservation.  In...


Help refill stolen donation jars

Editor, Local nonprofit assets in our community seem to have become targets for thieves recently. First the Ronan Library was broken into and the donation jar, containing approximately $400, was stolen. Then, just last Wednesday, Oct. 16, while the volunteer front desk help was closing up for the night, t...


Globalism taking shape, freedom under attack

Editor, Henry Lamb, now deceased, was the diligent researcher, historian and documentarian of the Globalism phenomenon and role of the United Nations in its development and introduction. Many decades ago the scheming and planning for Agenda 21 and Sustainability began. For over 20 years since the 1992 ...


Biological child point of view

Editor, In the recent Valley Journal article highlighting the Villegas story about Fostering Love, I feel I need to clarify a few things. Dennis Villegas has not been a part of my nor my children’s life for the last 11 years. And because of this you can understand why this article hurt me. His state...


Tribal council must work for us

  Editor, The People’s Voice Inc. is a non-profit organization founded under the guidelines of the State of Montana, Secretary of State’s Office, as of January 4, 2013. We are advocates for tribal members who have issues and concerns before the tribal council or tribal court, and are t...


Fulton’s unselfish commitment inspires

Editor, It’s a rare candidate running for political office whose love of community surpasses his/her own political aspirations. But Bob Fulton has quietly demonstrated to so many that he is indeed that rare individual, in writing his eloquent letter “Polson will be in good hands,” publis...
