Women’s Club extends thanks

Editor, The Round Butte Woman’s Club would like to extend their many thanks to those who attended and supported our spring brunch held Sunday, March 21. Because of their participation, the brunch was a success. I personally would like to thank the ladies who prepared and served the meal. It is a great time for friends and neighbors to come together and visit. A special thanks to those merchants and community members for the donations to our silent auction. The sponsors and results of the silent auction are as follows: Full Family Dental Exam, donated by Dr. Tim Bagnell, DDS went to Ronna Walchuk; Hand Crocheted Doilies donated by Kathy Emerson went to Rosa Tougas and Jeanne E...

Consider these health care facts

Editor, Healthcare facts - the new law states the following: 1- Requires health insurance. 2 - Insurance tax credits for incomes one-four times poverty rate. 3 - Prohibits cancellation or exclusion. 4 - Existing plans are grandfathered in unchanged. 5 - Limits premium rates. 6 - Prohibits federal funds fo...

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...

Health care bill is a good start

Editor,  I am relieved that the national health care bill passed and will be put into law this week. There are people living without health care coverage right now, and more losing it every day. This bill is by no means perfect — but it is a very good start to keep people from losing insurance ...

Restoring America involves active participation

Editor, This letter is in response to Sheila Bell’s letter published last week. As one of the founders of Calling All Conservatives (CAC), I wanted to answer her question about the change of name. It changed because the group has new leadership, and had nothing to do with the Hamilton group as Sheil...

Enjoy student artwork on display

Editor, We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Polson School Superintendent, David Whitesell and Communications Director, Marsha Anson for allowing Polson businesses to display student art in their offices and stores. When you are shopping in Polson, please take the time to locate a...

We'll all experience a resurrection

Editor, A short time ago, I participated, by sharing my condolences, in a memorial service for a Polson High School acquaintance from the 1940s; his grieving widow was a classmate of mine. This thought crossed my mind and perhaps has crossed the minds of others attending memorial services: will I see him ...
