    The divide that exists in every corner of America has made it difficult for many to see the truth in most issues. Inflation needs no definition and has hit us all. People, one person is not responsible for this money sucking event. You can blame every elected official to a point.

      I want to commend the Montana Board of Oil and Gas Conservation for its leadership in addressing the problem of Montana’s orphaned and abandoned oil and gas wells. BOGC recently applied for $25 million in federal grant funding made available through the bipartisan infrastructure package sign…

        The best use of the state's financial surplus would be to repair all of the hundreds (thousands?) of potholes throughout Montana. Wheel alignments and tire repairs are very costly and needed too often here in Montana. Those road repairs would also leave a more favorable impression of Montana…

          I am proud to have served as a Republican all my life. I have been the vice-chairman of the Montana State Republican Party. I served two terms as a Republican county commissioner here in Yellowstone County. I worked 10 plus years for Republican Sen. Conrad Burns as his state director. I was …

          This morning I read on Twitter of homeschooling parents bemoaning the faddish right-wing concept of “wokeness” being seen increasingly within their educational resources. Granted, parents are legal guardians and must make choices in their children’s education, but in my opinion this narrow-m…

          As a Rapid City resident, I have been seeing the ads against Liz Cheney on our local television stations. It is disturbing when out-of-state interests attempt to take down a public servant dedicated to her home state of Wyoming, its people, and its values.

          Boohoo! I wanna come home because Russia is being mean to me, please feel sorry for me! Me bad; hurry up, come get me! Call the President, Mom, he will get me out of this mess. Is that the message she wants everybody in the world to understand and accept? Really, how many of you can accept t…

          Over the past few days, major television news outlets showed Montana U.S. Sen. Steve Daines doing a “fist bump” on the Senate floor with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz immediately after the Republicans voted against the PACT Act. This legislation would have allowed funding for military veterans who hav…

          Democrats have taken time away from destroying our country to stage dramatic hearings about Jan. 6. Hiring a TV producer to create the greatest impact on the public. Characterizing this event involving a few hundred people as the greatest threat to our Democracy since the civil war. An event…

          Regarding the nursing homes due to close in Hardin and Bozeman. Those residents could be discharged to a family or person who will take them in, if the resident agrees. So, instead of paying the nursing home say $10,000 each month, pay the family who takes care of them $8,000 per month becau…

          I grew up in Billings, and was recently home to visit my elderly mother. The day after we left someone stole three of the four tires off mom's car and replaced them with their old flat worn-out ones. She lives in an apartment with a covered parking stall. She is the kindest, sweetest person …

          As grandparents it has been our privilege to immerse ourselves in the Billings parks, enjoying watching grandkids exercise. We are amazed at the quality of the parks and enjoy the variety of activities at each park. At Lillis Park recently we observed walkers, pickleball players, tennis play…

          Finland and Sweden, long neutral democratic countries neighboring Russia, alarmed by Putin's war on Ukraine, have applied to join the NATO defense alliance. Both countries have strong defense establishments, consistently spending more on defense than many current NATO members and would consi…

          Rarely do I feel thankful paying federal taxes, but when excellent leaders guide a beloved institution, Lincoln’s canon “…of the people, by the people and for the people…” resonates. Cam Sholly, superintendent of Yellowstone National Park, exemplifies public service. Government leaders need …

          It’s ironic, but does anyone see it? First, the Supreme Court overturns Roe vs. Wade, letting states ban abortion, then the Supreme Court rules against the EPA fixing the climate crisis. The first was supposedly “pro-life,” but the second will kill people on an enormous scale. Supreme Court …

          We need to work together to solve Montana’s housing crisis. Affordable housing is increasingly unavailable for the middle class, touching both rural and urban communities and making it difficult for employers to hire workers, who struggle to find housing.
