‘Dianetics’ is deceiving

  Editor, I wondered why the Valley Journal would give free advertising for Scientology (May 2, “Free Introductory Counseling”) just because it came in the form of a letter to the editor. However, perhaps this is a blessing, because exposure to the light of examination is one of the best ways to illuminate the what pseudoscience really is. Here now is an opportunity for readers to Google “Dianetics” and learn what L. Ron Hubbard promoted in 1950 as Scientology. For more than 60 years, there have been many exposes of Scientology (Dianetics), but it seems that there is always enough of a new gullible public to keep the business alive. If you do Google &ld...


Spay, neuter pets this weekend

Editor, Please bring your unaltered cats and dogs to the Brian Anderson Memorial Spay/Neuter Clinic May 12-13 at Glacier View Christian School. Spaying and neutering helps control pet over-population, benefits pets and owners, and is professionally handled by Lake County’s Spay/Neuter Task Force. ...


Negative attacks distract

Editor,  Interesting that someone from Butte would question me and our business. This is just another negative attack to direct attention from the real issues. Who has the real experience and track record to represent Senate District 6? Our businesses are all public knowledge. As for the orchard, ...


Taylor’s exemptions questionable

Editor, Here is an issue of vital importance to those of us owning property in the Flathead. I am a property owner on the west shore of Flathead Lake, and I realize there are agricultural tax exemptions available to legitimate cherry producers. It is a matter of public record that Rep. Janna Taylor own...


Upcoming election is serious business

Editor, Why does Montana lag behind North Dakota and Wyoming in development and use of our abundant natural resources? They do not suffer the extent of legal impediments inflicted upon Montanans by a small percentage of our population consisting of highly financed radical eccentrics. To regain our economy...

Editor, I am writing to endorse Sen. Carmine Mowbray and her return to the Montana Legislature, serving Senate District 6. I have known Carmine for more than 25 years. Her experience as a successful business person, active community volunteer and having earned the respect of her peers in the last legis...

Hunter’s ed worthwhile

Editor, I am an adult who took the Hunter Education Course held at SKC in April. I would like to thank the three volunteer instructors; they did an excellent job instilling the ideas for gun safety and ethical hunting and gave us a wonderful field day at the shooting range near Ronan. I also want to thank...


Tester ad claims untrue

Editor,  Call me old-fashioned, but for my whole life I’ve considered honesty to be a supremely important quality. For that reason, I am writing to counter recent Jon Tester campaign ads that are dishonest. Tester’s ads have falsely accused Denny Rehberg of “(voting) himself a pa...


Thanks for making sale great

Editor, The Valley View Women’s Club would like to thank everyone who helped, donated, and attended our rummage sale; it was a huge success. We had a large lunch crowd and everyone enjoyed macho nachos and pie. We were busy all day, and everyone took home treasures. Thank you again for supporting us...
