  • Dear Editor: In Support of Gary Buchanan

    GRANT GODBOLT|Oct 5, 2022

    Dear Editor, In today’s toxic political climate I believe we need someone positive in Washington DC. Gary Buchanan is running as an Independent for the eastern district house seat for the U.S. House of Representatives. Jefferson County is in the eastern Congressional district. A close friend of mine convinced me to volunteer for the Buchanan campaign. My friend worked for Gary in 1994 when Gary was asked by Governor Marc Racicot to re-organize Montana State Government. My friend has known Gary and his family for about 30 years and is heavily i...

Montana and the rest of the nation did not always have viable populations of big game. In the 1930s wildlife populations were at an all-time low due to overharvest and habitat loss. Hunters, conservationists,...

    GRANT GODBOLT|Jan 19, 2022

    Many of you probably read Roger Siemen’s obituary in the Whitehall Ledger (Jan.12) or in the Montana Standard. Facebook has some complimentary posts that many of you will find interesting. Roger led a full life with many accomplishments. One of Roger’s accomplishments that I appreciated was the work he did from Whitehall as District Ranger of the Jefferson Ranger District, Deerlodge National Forest. Roger was district ranger for about 10 years during the 1980s. Roger said that if district rangers concentrate on three issues they can’t go wrong...
