Thanks for making Thanksgiving dinner a success

Editor, Judging from the many people that made the effort to come back to the kitchen and personally thank the cooks, and the many positive comments that were overheard, it appears the Polson Community Thanksgiving Dinner, held at the Polson Senior Center on Thanksgiving Day, was a great success. The warm atmosphere of the building itself, plus the music, the smell of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and the happy voices and laughter of the people attending, all helped to create a welcoming environment. Homemade pies, rolls and salads contributed by Polson area churches covered the tables. Thanks to Pastor Kyle Whaley of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church, who was the Master of C...


Food pantry grateful for community support

Editor,  Mission Valley Food Pantry has been the recipient of helping hands and generous people throughout the 2010 year. The economic situation of many in our area has not improved within the last 12 months, and this seems to have made the people of our area more aware of the needs of others. Partic...


Don’t buy into misinformation from media

Editor, If we, the American public, really knew the extent of the manipulation of information being fed to us day after day, then we, the American public, would all be as angry and frustrated as what was shown to us through the Tea Party movement.  “What do I know?” you ask. “Whe...


Wake up, Montana

Editor, We recently got a letter from Lake County Treasury requesting us to say if we still protest our raise in property value. What does it take to get them to pay attention? We had a government-paid IRS employee come by and take a photo from across the street. Our home tax value then raised $59,000....

Thanks to PHS youth for help with shipment

Editor, We just hope to show our community that there are some wonderful and giving teenagers here at Polson High School. RSVP Volunteer Center and Lake County Council on Aging, would like to extend a big thank you. The boys came to Pablo and assisted the volunteers there in unloading commodity goods from...


Nation should repent

Editor, (This is a letter I wrote to President Obama and some members of congress.) This is not a crank letter. I write out of deep concern for the welfare of our country. While reading Second Kings in the Bible there was something repeated so often that it became monotonous; one would have to be a dun...


Yay, more government control

Editor, We have no wolf hunting because a stupid judge rules with the encouragement of brain-dead environmentalists. My 14-year-old granddaughter published an article about how the wolves harm deer and elk. She is a country girl, so she knows. A very nice rancher offered her a chance to hunt elk on his...

Keep up the good work

Editor, In this season of giving thanks, let’s commend the Journal for continuing to be the herald of events in our valley. They continue to be a lifeline of up-and-coming community activities we may share. Can you get better advertising anywhere?  Our recent Holiday Market at Mt. Calvary Lu...
