  • To the voters of Carter County,

    Updated Oct 26, 2022

    After the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs Wade, Montana reverted to a “Right to Privacy” law which allows abortions for any reason up to viability, 24 to 28 weeks. So a child, who has its own separate DNA, its own blood, its own soul, is no longer safe in what should be the safest and most nurturing place, the womb. My daughter, pregnant with my 29 week grandson, entered the hospital in danger of an early birth. She was assured that he had a 95% chance of survival. At 29 weeks, he was just one week older than when he cou...

  • Dear residents of Carter County,

    Updated Oct 26, 2022

    Upon an interesting read of last week’s Meet the Candidate article, I feel it is important to clarify a statement made by one of the candidates about the caseload in District Court here in Carter County as compared to Justice Court. While it was not an inaccurate statement, it could well be misconstrued. The term caseload is in reference to the number of filings per year which does not accurately reflect the workload. District Court is of greater jurisdiction and is the appellate court for Justice and City Courts. Its f...

  • Conversations with God

    Updated Oct 26, 2022

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, IF we paid attention to things that go on around us, we might see some amazing things; just sharing a moment near the Post Office: A little girl walked fast across the parking lot, then stopped as a breeze got frisky; three trees nearby gave a shower of leaves. She started dancing and singing; “Grandma! The breeze – it’s tossing golden leaves, they’re sticking to my sleeves,” She stopped as the breeze stopped, then fell down a golden leaf onto her hand. “Grandma! I think the Ang...
