  • Dear Editor: Square and Your Business

    CAREY BURNSIDE, Arctic Heat|May 17, 2023

    Dear Editor, As business owners, we all go through different phases of learning in business. We learn everything from how to run our business on paper, navigate expenses, and hire the right team of expert lawyers and accountants, to how to become more profitable. We often ask ourselves, "Am I doing this right? Is my business headed in the direction I want it to go? What areas of my business do I need to focus on?"

  • Dear Editor: It's Time to Apply Fiscal Responsibility in DC

    DAN JOHNSON|May 17, 2023

    Dear Editor, Montana is a beacon of fiscal responsibility; it's time to apply it in DC. The state's budget surplus this year is a clear indicator that Montana is doing something right economically. We've seen this money be put to good use by reducing our tax burden and smart spending on programs that will boost our economic prosperity and bring growth and opportunity to the state. Representative Matt Rosendale has brought that same mentality to Congress. It's clear that Democrats have overspent...

    May 17, 2023

    Mattress stores seem to stay in business forever yet a mattress is one of the most infrequent customer purchases, Efficient workers at work are the ones punished with more work. The only real Christmas Miracle is that Santa has not gotten shot by anyone, especially in the U.S. There’s a song that you absolutely love but you’ll never listen to it again because you just forgot about it. Youth is a paradox because you want to be healthy and make good habits and set up your career, but you also want to be hedonistic so you don’t end up regre...

  • Guest Opinion: Guns Have Changed Everything, Especially Childhood

    LAURA PRITCHETT, Writers on the Range|May 17, 2023

    I learned to shoot on the family ranch, as ranch kids are wont to do. My gun education was furthered at a Catholic summer camp, and I still have my paper target proving my marksmanship. It was hunter safety classes, and calm, clear-eyed common sense; this was the rural approach to guns I grew up with. Then it’s a story we all know: Guns became politicized. Polarized. Lobby-ized. Humans are good at inventing things, so guns got more militarized as they turned into weapons of mass destruction. Our laws, sadly, didn’t keep up, because humans can...

  • RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Authentic Greek Salad

    May 17, 2023

    Quick and simple meals are the name of the game when warm weather beckons and spending time in the kitchen is less attractive. Salads are best during midsummer when they can be comprised of fresh and ripe ingredients plucked right from the garden. What's more, salad can be a side dish or even the main meal if fortified with a little protein and some bread. This recipe for Authentic Greek Salad from Clueless in the Kitchen: Cooking for Beginners (Firefly Books) by Evelyn Raab is ideal. The...

  • Connecting Point: Who's Watching Us

    BILL LANES|May 17, 2023

    As technology has advanced, I’ll be the first to admit distrusting the so-called “Cloud”, the online system that saves my pictures, documents, and more on a server in Butte, Bozeman, Seattle, Washington, Sacramento, California, or Dillon, just to make the point. A friend of mine recently told me that he deleted some files on his computer, not knowing that everything was deleted on his entire cloud account—a major hassle. I’m all for files being saved; however, I’m a yard leery of others, namely hackers, getting my personal data and information...
