  • Star Theatre Reopening This Weekend!

    Elizabeth Pullman, Whitehall Ledger|May 12, 2021

    When businesses and workplaces began lock down in March 2020, no one expected the shut down to last very long; then it kept going and going. No one expected business to be so severely impacted by COVID-19; then businesses all around the country began to close permanently. Whitehall has been lucky to have the residents rally around local businesses and keep most alive during the pandemic. However, with entertainment no longer a priority and the theatre an enclosed space, our Star Theatre has...

  • Support Needed for Bill Criticall to Local Journalism's Future

    May 12, 2021

    Fairness is not a partisan issue. Fairness is the goal of the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act currently being considered in the United States Congress. The bill has bipartisan support in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. H.R. 1735 / S.673 is critically important to protecting the future of high-quality, local journalism in Montana and across our nation. Support is growing for the legislation, yet much more needs to be done before it can become law. This bill would make negotiations for fair compensation possible...

  • Dear Editor: Another Letter from the Horseman

    Robert Lack|May 12, 2021

    Dear Editor, A letter from the Horseman: I keep hearing all these complains about how employers can’t find people to work anymore, because the pandemic checks are more than what people make working. Well, I think back forty years ago when a ranch in Pennsylvania called and wanted to pay all of my expenses - $1500.00 a month, plus a home and all utilities – to come out and ride colts and do ranch work. Nowadays, it probably still pays the same. I feel employers should pay the same as a pandemic check of $484.00 a week, plus taxes and ben...

    Jo|May 12, 2021

    Dear Jo, I believe that I am Flying Solo’s mom (letter in last weeks paper). She put her question very nicely, being loved is definitely not all bad.

Signed, the Bubble Wrapper Dear Bubble Wrapper, Thank you for writing in. I hope Solo reads this weeks paper. I am sure your comments will be appreciated. Signed, Jo ~~~~~~~~~~ Dear Jo, How many p...

  • New Town Councilors Seated

    Elizabeth Pullman, Whitehall Ledger|May 12, 2021

    At the May meeting of the Whitehall Town Council new town councilors Bill Lanes and Linda Jung were approved and seated.

  • Connecting Point: Celebrating Authentic Women

You can include yours truly amongst those who believe it is essential for us to celebrate Mother’s Day. To all mothers: You are unique, because through you we all have life. Being...
