Political problem needs to be discussed

Editor,   President Trump seems to be ramping up his base towards a nasty revolution if he is either impeached or loses the next election. It seems prudent that we talk openly about this possibility, given Trump’s rants, language, rallies and behavior. There are many people in our nation who are unhappy with their lives and looking for someone or something to blame and attack.

Support Polson School District bond

Editor,  Strong public schools are the cornerstone of a successful community. Whether or not you work for the school or have a child in the district, our entire community is better when the quality of education is improved across the board. Improvements that will be made from the passage of both Pols...

Vote for school bond, improved safety for students

Editor, I have been a member of the Polson community for over 40 years and have been impressed by the positive support shown for our school system.   When I came to Polson as a teacher in 1976, our high school was just two years old, the old high school was our middle school, the Lincoln building ...
