  • Election 2018 – Kathleen Williams, U.S. House race

    Timothy Pierce, Community News Service UM School of Journalism|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    On a brisk mid-September morning, Gallatin County Democrats circled around a rippling blue tarp, one adorned with sequins and glitter, and grabbed an edge of the wave. Kathleen Williams' campaign manager focused the excitable group of more than 40 people. "On three. Just like we practiced," he said. "One, two, three ... Hey, hey/Ho, ho/Gianforte's got to go." The group ran through a couple chants as staff and volunteers waited for Williams, the Democratic nominee in this...

  • Election 2018 – Matt Rosendale profile

    Shaylee Ragar, Community News Service UM School of Journalism|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    In a small room at the back of a historic hotel in Whitehall, Mont., Republican Matt Rosendale told a crowd of about 30 people he's not worried about a Democratic groundswell this election cycle. "I keep telling folks, the only blue wave I think is going to blow ashore is going to be in Hawaii somewhere," Rosendale said. "We got a red wave coming through here." Dressed in an MSU Bobcat polo, the U.S. Senate hopeful and current State Auditor made his way around a large...

  • Election 2018 – Greg Gianforte, U.S. House race

    Paul Hamby, Community News Service UM School of Journalism|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    In Missoula's GOP headquarters, surrounded by Republican civic leaders, volunteers and veterans, Congressman Greg Gianforte recently made his pitch for re-election as Montana's only voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. Organizers called the event a rally, but instead of standing at a microphone and podium at a packed stadium, Gianforte spoke in measured sentences from the corner of an office suite while a few dozen supporters lined the walls and munched on pizza....

  • Montana Veterans' Affairs: A Matter for Men Only?

    Mary Stange, Democratic Candidate for SD 19|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    Veteran affairs are a matter of growing concern as Montana’s veteran population is both growing and aging. This is no doubt a key reason why Jon Tester has made advocating on behalf of Montana’s heroes and wounded warriors a central feature of his mission as a Senator. Perhaps because many of these Vets are likely to be Republicans, Matt Rosendale has recently jumped on the bandwagon. About a month ago—pretty late when it comes to this current political cycle—Rosendale announced his plan to double-down on Veterans’ issues, v...

  • Letter to the editor

    Ryan Tooke, CEO Dahl Memorial Healthcare Association|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    When I first thought of applying for the CEO position at Dahl Memorial, it was the possibility of building a new facility that excited me the most about the opportunity. When I left Ekalaka 20 years ago, I didn’t think my career path would take me into healthcare administration and back home. Here we are, and happy to be here. The experience I have in healthcare started in Forsyth on July 2, 2007 with the thought of someday becoming CEO and providing some sort of stability in that position to Rosebud Health Care Center. In M...

  • Bright Ideas

    Lois Lambert|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    As a very little girl, I remember my mom listening to baseball games on the radio. She would be doing the dishes while the radio sat on the refrigerator. Didn’t everyone’s radio reside on the refrigerator? I only started following baseball after our move to Ekalaka and my meeting Dave Williams and Marshall Shelden. During baseball season they always had small wagers on the fate of the Chicago Cubs; Williams backed the Cubs, Shelden backed their opposition. Marshall Sheldon won more often, but once a Cubs fan always a Cub...

  • Hat Tips

    Dean Meyer|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    Hello, To many of my readers, this time of the year is a great time. Pheasant hunting is open, you can blast those ducks that are heading south, and deer season is right around the corner. Coyotes are nearing prime and prairie dogs are enjoying wrecking the prairie and standing above their dens and bragging about it. But, thinking of hunting, reminds me of a couple of stories. One involves a good friend who passed away a several years ago. Jerry Linseth. He had a ranch west of Grassy Butte on the Little Missouri. He loved...

  • Memories

    Loyd Townsend|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    I will continue this week with memories of our neighbors, Frank and Clara Nies. My last article told of them getting a years supply of coal and wood from their own place, taking a month to fill the coal house. One day while uncovering the coal Clara had this experience to tell about. “Frank was handling the scrapper while I drove the horses. I stood on the double trees and this one time the scraper caught on something with a sudden stop and the first thing I knew I was flying through the air over the horses. Frank thought i...

  • Election 2018 – Jon Tester Profile

    Emily Schabacker, Community News Service UM School of Journalism|Updated Nov 1, 2018

    Jon Tester worked his way down a row of eager union members, shaking hands as he went. His battered pair of dusty cowboy boots a sharp contrast with the button-up dress shirt. Even his outfit sends the message that he is both a politician and a farmer. He's counting on his homesteader history to set him apart from his opponent, Matt Rosendale, in the 2018 elections. "I was born and raised here," Tester said after the Great Falls event. "I've made a living in rural America....

    Updated Nov 1, 2018

    Young children traveled area businesses to do some trick-or-treating for Halloween on Wednesday morning. Above, some of the youngsters who attend Gigglers and Wigglers Daycare and Preschool are shown at Summit National Bank in Ekalaka....
