Editor, We just hope to show our community that there are some wonderful and giving teenagers here at Polson High School.

Editor, During the past two years Montana Republicans have rejected everything proposed by the Democrats. Now that our leading Democrat has proposed a budget offering tax cuts for all of us, I expect the Republicans to firmly oppose all aspects of that budget. Peter Daniels Polson

Editor, Last evening I attended a Moroccan dinner, hosted by Co Carew and Bill Starkey, held in a special room at the Oasis “Mecca Marketplace” on Main Street which, by the way, is filled with most exotic and unusual items. This gathering was a fundraiser for Mission Valley Aquatics. There wer...
