Food pantry needs cash donations

Editor, It is that time of year again when the overwhelming 
generosity of the Town Pump manifests itself in their Matching Gift program. This year, Town Pump has increased its matching gift total to $12,000. For every cash donation made to Polson Loaves and Fish Food Pantry, the Town Pump will 
match it dollar for dollar up to a total gift of $12,000. This program will run from 
now until November 30, 2019.  Throughout the year, the pantry receives generous food donations for which we are exceedingly grateful. The constant generosity of the people of 
Polson is amazing and appreciated, but in addition to food donations, we need 
cash donations. The operating needs and the mainte...

Forgiveness helps after being triggered

Editor, It occurs to me, with all the things going on in America right now, that we need to practice what my spiritually based social-teachings advocate. It is covered in one word. The word is “forgiveness.” This word can mean different things to different people. This is what it means to me. ...

Sharing thanks from food pantry

Editor,  Due to some health issues, I’m not able to give the full recognition to all those involved with Lake County Drug Court. I do thank you all from the depths of my heart. All hats off to the many, many people involved with the system. We have seen such wonderful changes in the area. One t...

Cherishing memories

Editor,  Chief Joseph had an impact on my life. He was of the Nez Perce tribe in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States back in the mid 1800s. He spoke out often with great wisdom and vision.    My artist grandfather introduced us kids to Chief Joseph back in the 1930s with ta...

Double spaces make it easier to read  

Editor,  Ben Stone’s discussion of the Oxford comma and its history in the Aug .7 issue of the Valley Journal is very interesting. I am a writer and also like history. The use of a comma before “and” in a list (like June, July, and August) is an Oxford comma. Its use seems to be ...

Thankful for support

Editor, The Preston family would like to thank everyone in the community who has been so supportive of us during the illness and death of Jay Preston Sr. Thank you to the St. Luke Nursing Home and hospital staff for the wonderful love and care you gave to Jay and Beth over the last four years. We want to ...

Create positivity through prayer

Editor, We aren’t a church but members of the Baha’i Faith. We meet in our homes and our home is in the North Crow area, between Pablo and Ronan. We would like to thank those that participated in our monthly gathering centered on community building.  In order to overcome the bombardmen...
