English discrepancies English discrepancies

The English language is a formidable beast, even for those of us who learned it as our first language. Language is all about meaning – communication. And sometimes context and inflection can completely change the meaning of a word or phrase. Add to this the overall goofiness of English. Why is it that ...

Considering origins of moral law

Editor, The discussion regarding the concept of “worldviews” in recent letters is interesting; an important one for sure in this age of moral relativism where historically understood “self-evident truths” are rejected and even mocked. Ideas have consequences and worldview presuppos...


When life gives you fabric softener When life gives you fabric softener

It was a go-to-the-store for laundry detergent and come home with fabric softener kind of day. But hey, everyone has bad days. Not one of us has a corner on that market. And bad days are in the eye of the beholder. I think about this when I’m having a bad day, but sometimes I don’t want to lis...

Time to get along

Editor, Among religious fanatics, it’s a common ploy to misquote and misrepresent non-believers and create fabrications to be disputed. When I was young, science-deniers of the day insisted man wasn’t descended from apes, when no scientist had made that claim. Scott Kerr’s recent letter ...


Worried water will get turned off

Editor, I wish, as a Jocko District irrigator, that I had responsible, forward-looking commissioners like the Flathead Irrigation District. Working ranchers and farmers in the Mission and Jocko Districts are in danger of not getting any irrigation water this growing season. The Flathead Indian Irrigati...


'I love to read month' celebrated at library

Just when we thought winter was over … oh well, what a great excuse to stay indoors with a book or movie that you checked out from the library. We are adding new books and movies every week, so there is always something great to pick up. Don’t see what you are looking for on the shelves? Place s...
