Thanks for making the tournament a success

Editor, The Ronan 5 on 5 Basketball Tournament Directors — Steve Woll, Mike Graham, and Shelly Buhr — would like to send out a very special thanks to all that helped in making the tournament a success. Several businesses made a number of donations and we had a lot of tournament volunteers. And we couldn’t have done this without the referees. Many thanks to our girls and boys basketball student volunteers and the Ronan Booster Club. Steve Woll Ronan

Easter is cause to celebrate

Editor, As the deadness of cold winter days fade and the warmer breezes of spring sweep across the valley; and all around are the melodious songs of robins and meadowlarks; newborn calves soak up the warmth of sunny skies; the bright blooms of Crocus flowers and the fragrance of the Easter lilies fill our...

Stop the presses

Editor, I just wanted to say that I’m a faithful Valley Journal reader, all of your stories and articles are a joy to read until today. I read the article about medical marijuana on the front page of the April 1 issue and I just have to say, the article was not concise on a few key points. One wa...

Polson food pantry needs your help

Health care legislation could harm life

Editor, To Senator Max Baucus, the great humanitarian, you have just helped pass legislation, which indirectly will pay for the destruction of the very lives you claim to want to benefit. “All men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights; among those rights are life.” When...

It's the whip, not the rod

Editor, Bob Hanson's letter in the March 18 Journal is right on. We both have the same problem with our Congressmen: lack of response. It is frustrating to see our Senators vote for something that most of us are against. Why do they do it? Blame it on the Whips. We've all heard references to the Majori...

Channel anger in a positive way

Editor, I have just heard reports that Members of Congress who voted for the just-signed-into-law health care reform bill are being targeted in violent ways. Such behavior is terribly wrong. House Minority Leader, John Boehner, has urged people to take their anger at the new law and “channel it into...

Charlo Ghost Out was a great success

Editor, I would like to take this time to thank everyone who participated and helped in the Charlo Ghost Out. It was a great success and I’m glad that I was able to have this program brought to the Charlo High School to teach the students about drinking and driving. I would like to send a special...
