Letters to the Editor

Same story, different year

Editor, Two (2) years ago this letter to the editor of mine was printed in some local papers. “Time flies when you are having fun,” right? Here’s what I wrote: How can the divided Republican party find a “non-Trumpian” to be candidate for president? We know there is a good and reasonable politically motivated person available; one who knows the truth and the facts and can speak clearly and effectively to our democratic future as a nation. It is essential that we get back to our democratic form of government with parties honoring their policies and at the same time honoring our democratic form of government. Beyond all the personal focus on Donald...


Put America first

Editor, Currently our democracy is lost unless we stand up against the tyranny of the Biden administration and the progressive Left. The dictatorial Left under the Biden administration has removed many of our freedoms and are attacking others. We hear day to day from the Left, how if President Trump wins ...


Is Trump too young?

Editor, Is Biden too old? Try asking this: “Is Trump too young?” Daily, Trump demonstrates that he has not developed the maturity to have impulse control, empathy, concern for the welfare of others, an ability to analyze evidence … and more. He misbehaves much like a selfish five-year-o...


We cannot afford to lose our democracy

Editor, Three considerations: (A) In our nation, black or white, rich or poor, liberal or conservative, male or female, young or old, our experiences have generally formed a trust in our two-party democratic system of government. However, many Republicans are presently baffled and bewildered by current...

Editor, I received my letter from DHRD Elder Services Program May 4, 2023. Long awaited with great anticipation almost a feeling of excitement opening up the letter. Finally after working 47 years of my life I will finally be recognized by my Tribe and its Council for all my hard work and dedication to my...


Strike Two for Tribal Health Department

Editor, This letter is being addressed to the Tribal Council and the Tribal Health management. Once again failure within the Tribal Health Department in the same program that failed to bring me to my scheduled surgery back in January 2024.  Upon calling their program in December 2023, letting t...


All’s fair in love, war? and U.S. politics?

Editor, The smooth transition of Presidential power came to an end after 225 years due to Donald Trump. The work of many, highly placed Republicans is responsible for this debacle. After 35 months, Wisconsin Republican “fake electors” who collaborated with Donald Trump to overturn the 2020 ...


Those who don’t do job right should be disciplined

Editor, To Tribal Council and to all those involved with the program who failed to follow through with their jobs. When you put your trust in those to do their jobs and they end up hurting you by not doing their jobs, they should be disciplined. The Tribal Health Program contacted me back in October...


What is the benefit of a citizen ballot initiative?

Editor, Currently there are six ballot initiatives approved by the Secretary of State for signature gathering.  Several are sponsored by single individuals. One by a young teenage girl. These are Montanans. None are sponsored by out-of-state corporations like the marijuana initiative was. Montana ...


DPHHS audit was necessary

Editor, The response from our government to the COVID-19 crisis will be second-guessed and cross-checked for years to come. Some decisions made sense while some were egregious oversteps. One decision made by the federal government was to put a pause on state governments looking at the qualifications of in...
