Thanks for a great event

Editor, I would like to thank the group "Calling All Conservatives" for the great event they put on Tuesday evening at the Ronan Community Center. The crowd was large (I'm sure at least 300), enthusiastic, and very polite. Regardless of your political affiliation, there were very informative speakers and a video that put things in perspective. The section about the Federal Reserve was an eye opener. There are enough shenanigans coming from both parties. If people are willing to educate themselves about our history, our Constitution, and how our elected officials are conducting business, they can become informed and decide for themselves which way to vote.  I was also impressed...

Congressman should listen to constituents

Editor, Dear Mr. Rehberg, I am writing to you in care of the editor since the only response I receive when I write to you is another form letter which seems a waste of my taxpayer dollars on postage to send.

Editor, I want to thank all the firemen and emergency personnel that helped put out the fire at my house. I greatly appreciate the quick response time and their efficiency at getting the fire out quickly. They saved many things and memories that I could never replace. Again, thank you. You are all a...


Truths to benefit from

Editor, As the New Year begins, I’m once again following my practice of reading through various books of the Bible; as well as other books written by biblical scholars. One of my favorite authors is Dr. J. Sidlow Baxter, a Scottish preacher who is now enjoying his eternal rewards. Baxter writes i...


Muslims and Arabs do not despise us

Editor, Recently, in a White House briefing to the press corp. on the intelligence screw-up that almost downed an airliner on Christmas Day, Helen Thomas, the 89-year-old Veteran correspondent and the only one in the room with real courage, asked counter-intelligence guru, John Brennan this question, &ldq...

Even with the downturn in the economy and the increased use of the Pantry, our shelves are well stocked with basic foods. The local schools and several bus...

Editor, On Jan. 1, 1863 Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. It was on this day, that the black persons of America began their long, arduous struggle to have their personhood recognized, defended, and protected.
