  • Conversations with God

    Updated Jan 28, 2021

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, sometimes one runs across an article that reminds us of days gone by, how You ‘surround’ us with Your unfailing love. Sharing the article and Bible verse with a friend, Del, to her that also brought back memories of quilts from when she was a kid. Her Mom loved to quilt as did others in their neighborhood. She excitedly told that neighbor lady, ‘Jane’, made quilts not only for her children, but she also made a special quilt for each one of her grandchildren. Del was privileged one day...

  • Legislative update

    Jerry Schillinger|Updated Jan 28, 2021

    Hello from Helena, Week three is just about in the bag. Many are headed home, but Carol and I are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our son Brett, daughter-in-law Haley and our grandchildren: Bryn, Bree, Keny and Kass! The pace is still somewhat slower than the norm, the veterans say, largely due to inefficiencies caused by new technologies allowing people to work away from the Capitol. I was just visiting with a bill drafter on the phone and could hear her little ones in the...

  • Outfitter bill would forever change Montana hunting

    Tom Puchlerz|Updated Jan 28, 2021

    Do you hunt with out of state family and friends? Do you hunt private lands without an outfitter or guide? Have you been applying for a Missouri River Breaks or Elkhorns bull tag for every single year? If so, you better pay attention. SB 143, sponsored by Sen. Jason Ellsworth, R-Hamilton, would turn the vast majority of non-resident big game licenses offered in Montana to “outfitter sponsored” tags favoring hunters with money who use outfitters. It would also create landowner licenses, and require that one quarter of spe...

    Updated Jan 28, 2021

    Calls are being received at local Area Agencies on Aging reporting that a credit card arrived in the mail from “Money Network Financial” saying that they represent the US Treasury and to call to activate the card. These are legitimate cards. Some 8 million Americans are receiving their stimulus payments on a pre-paid debit card sent through the mail, in addition to others who will receive the payment via paper checks or automatic deposits. Just because someone received their last payment one way does not mean they will rec...

  • Cooking in the West

    Susan Metcalf|Updated Jan 27, 2021

    After a few hours in office, Joe Biden has signed executive orders that have angered Canada, diabetics, users of epipens, oil and gas workers, Keystone Pipeline workers, union laborers working on the border wall, Border Patrol, ranchers on our southern border, and he disrespected the National Guard whom he housed in parking garages. Rather than promoting unity, these orders and actions have fueled another four year war amongst a divided nation. The situation is far from laughable, but it does remind me of an old Norwegian...
