    Doing a survey on what Americans thinks of GOP/Dems and how they are doing today, I met a young woman, 19-years-old who said she was raised in a conservative family and stated that the current administration in D.C. is destroying the country. But then when asked who she would consider voting…

      Members of the Ravalli County Republican Central Committee are shy three dollars in the sawbuck. Five hundred and ninety-two days after Joe Biden’s presidential election, the Central Committee announced that the Electoral College outcome was illegitimate (Ravalli Republic, July 20, p. A1). T…

        The cost of living is way up for all residents of Montana. Now is not the time to pass levies or raise taxes no matter how noble the cause. Property tax, rent, water and sewer bills, food, gas, utilities, health care, hay, firewood, ice cream, etc., etc. are at record breaking levels! The vo…

          Regarding the impromptu “parade” of motorcycles and trucks streaming Confederate flags in downtown Hamilton a couple of Saturdays recently: If these folks choose to wave Confederate flags, they should at least ensure they display the historically accurate flag. Even a casual history buff kno…

            Memorial Day 2022 has come and gone. The parade was originally organized by WWI veterans to honor those men and women who died in the service of their country. This year was the 102nd marching of the parade. Now it’s organized and lead by the American Post #91 of Corvallis. I think they did …

              Dolly Parton Imagination Library is starting our third year this month with more than 50% of the children from birth to five in our county receiving a free book each month. We want to thank the Elks Lodge #1651 for being our first donor and continuing to award us their Spotlight Grant each y…

                In your recent article “2022 likely to join Montana’s worst floods” by Griffen Smith there was so much incomplete reporting that it made the article somewhat deceptive.

                Our cowardly members of Congress, lost in the deep pockets of the NRA, should be required to view crime scene photos of the broken, mutilated bodies of school children and other innocents, robbed of their lives by a shooter with an AR-15. After seeing these horrific photos, could they still …

                Texas governor Greg Abbot characterized the killer in Uvalde as "evil." Every speaker at this week’s NRA convention used the word "evil" in describing him. They are wrong.

                The first opportunity for the public to comment and become involved in decisions regarding the “Bitterroot Front Project” recently closed. The 144,000 acre analysis area covers a landscape that runs along the Bitterroot Front from Darby to almost Lolo. The intent of the project is to identif…

                I'm unable to decide which predicament is the worst for our flailing nation at this point in time. Is it the thousands of pounds of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine flooding an unguarded border, guns being blamed for our lack of mental health programs which identify people afflicted with their d…

                Thank you to the American Legion organizers of the Corvallis Memorial Day Parade for your hard work continuing the tradition of honoring our fallen soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Having marched in this parade many times, it looked like one of the best attended in ye…

                Ah, the signs of spring: birds chirping, green grass, showers, warmth in the sun, and every other year — election years — the endless roadside and yard political signs. The latter being a not-so-welcome indicator. In my personal opinion, landscape pollution.

                Representative David Bedey is a man of character whom I am pleased to endorse for reelection to the Montana House of Representatives.

                Turning compassion into action has always been the Red Cross way, but we certainly don’t do it alone. That’s why we want to thank you for making Red Cross part of your community.

                Talking to voters from HD 88, they think that Wayne Rusk is the better candidate for the state Legislature rather than Alan Lackey.

                This is not a state for wimps. Freedom and independence are deeply held values, along with family bonds and reverence for God. Where does Gianforte get the idea that “a special legislative session” is necessary to tell women what to do with their own bodies? He can’t abide a mask but it’s ok…

                Every Republican I have asked does not want to see school children shot in class. They are for responsible gun ownership and the Second Amendment. They back the blue for law and order.

                "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." This is the Second Amendment. The following site you can read about the history of the interpretation of the second amendment. https://www.law.c…

                Now that someone has declared under oath that Hillary Rodham Clinton gave the green light to smear President Trump, will she explain her motivation? I think not.

                The county attorney’s office is a vital cog in the wheel of county government. Ravalli County has the good fortune of strong leadership and performance from the Sheriff’s Department, the County Commissioners Office and the County Attorney’s Office. We need Bill Fulbright to continue.

                Dear Ravalli County highway department and commissioners, we have been waiting for many years to get our county road of Wilcox Lane fixed, instead of pot holes and tar patches.
