  • Letter to the editor

    Updated Jul 17, 2019

    What is the US Climate Alliance? It is a domestic group formed specifically to undermine President Trump’s excellent decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Now, by executive order, Part-time Governor Steve Bullock has undermined all of Montana by aligning Montana with the US Climate Alliance. This is so wrong. To begin, Montana is the Treasure State, not the “Fly Fishing State”. Sure, Montana is a great state for recreation, but to quote Senator Al Olszewski, “Montana’s wealth comes from the ground.” Our natural...

  • Hat Tips

    Dean Meyer|Updated Jul 17, 2019

    Hello, I’ve got a friend that’s a heck of a good cowboy. He can pick up a rodeo, calve a bunch of heifers, get his hay put up, and put a good handle on a broncy colt. When he was younger he followed the big rodeo and also rode bucking bulls. He raised a couple of great young men and is raising some wonderful grandkids. We ran cattle together on Fort Berthold for a few years. Now I’m old and fat and scared of horses, so he did most of the work. I just kind of tagged along. He had a saying I heard an awful lot. You could be ri...

  • Rattlesnakes

    Bill Lavell|Updated Jul 17, 2019

    Rattlesnakes were a definite fact of life in and around Ekalaka. At that time we killed every rattlesnake we encountered immediately. I am not so sure that I would do that now, in fact, if they were not in a position to harm me or mine I would go about my business and let them live their little rattlesnakey lives. A lot of my encounters with snakes were with my Grandpa Coons. He was fearless with them. He would be riding along, encounter a rattlesnake and he would leisurely get off his horse, Snooks. He would then nudge the s...

  • Conversations with God

    Updated Jul 17, 2019

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, while ‘riffling’ [or thumbing] through some papers, up popped a prayer for vacations. There should be a prayer for everything; absolutely everything should be bathed in prayers, so with that in mind, here we go: A Prayer for Vacations Loving Father, who didst make this earth so fair; open our eyes to see its wonder and our hearts to feel its beauty. In our days of refreshments and recreation, draw us nearer to Thee through the things which Thou hast made. May the joy of Thy sunsh...
