Las Vegas of the north

{{featured_button_text}}

Down south in Nevada, the high rollers put it all on the betting table, hoping Lady Luck will smile on them. They’ll put their cash, their money in the bank, their business, their mortgage, their truck and maybe even their dog. But Las Vegas has nothing on Ravalli County. Here we bet the most precious thing in our lives: the lives and health of our children.

Masks be damned. It’s our bet that’s important. We have this great freedom, to do as we like, to throw it all on the table, hands on hips, challenging anyone who says, “that’s foolish.” No, we are free to risk it all.

I don’t feel brave, or empowered, or devil-may-care. I feel afraid for our families, friends and neighbors. And I pray that they are very, very lucky.
