Drug court is important program

Editor, I was delighted to see your article in the April 17 edition in regard to the successful first year of Lake County Drug Court that is focusing on rehabilitation and overall life counseling. The smiles on the faces of the judge, participants and counselors are worth a million words. You can see the positive impact this program has had on everybody involved, and I hope to see more coverage of these success stories in the future. Great work by the Lake County Drug Court, and thank you for covering this important effort within our community. Eric Huffine Polson  

Highway clean up appreciated

Editor, Kudos to the families with the bright green vests that picked up trash on Hwy. 93 last Sunday afternoon. Hope you found some treasures. But let’s all try to take better care of our own trash. Make our highways more beautiful. (Especially for our visitors.) Kathleen Scott Ronan

Declaration of Independence created by regular people

Editor, What were the “true” beliefs of the Founders? Were they “pure” religious beings (whether Christian or not)? I doubt it. To steal from Thomas Paine – “Hey, how about a little common sense.” It is likely that the humans of 1776 were similar to those of 20...

Irrigation positions filled

Editor, The Bureau of Indian Affairs finally has begun to fill important Flathead Indian Irrigation Project senior positions and manager Pete Plant now is able to devote all of his time to FIIP. This provides an opportunity for the Flathead Irrigation District to re-establish the working relationship with...

Giving thanks to the students

Editor, Thank you, Ronan students for your respectful and enthusiastic engagement with O Sole Trio last Thursday. You made the most of the opportunity to benefit from the experience of these top-rated NYC musicians. Your questions were varied and interesting. You listened and learned. You made your teache...

Words matter to our country

Editor, Shout it from the highest hills. We can see it, feel it, even experience it, and we must deal with it. What is TFFF? This shout echoing down the canyon stands for “Trump’s Fearmongering Fuels Ferocity.” As is being reported, the number of hate groups operating across America r...

Port Polson Players appreciated

Editor, Bravo! And thank you to the Port Polson Players for gifting our community with another outstanding play, “Twelve Angry Men.” An award winning script, an outstanding cast, a talented director and a warm and welcoming support staff all combined to create a positive experience and a power...

Trash problems can be solved

Editor, In a perfect world people would not drink and drive and throw their empties out the window of their cars. In a perfect world, people would not go to a fast food restaurant 25 miles away and throw their garbage out the window of their car onto the side of the road. Obviously, we do not live in a pe...
