  • Whitehall Murals in Disarray - Can/Will You Help Us Save Them?

    John Kreis, Whitehall Chamber of Commerce|Jun 9, 2021

    This year, appears to be more of a return to normalcy. Vaccinations and anti bodies seem to be giving protection and more confidence in activities and life. We are looking at things in our lives and our home that have been neglected or taken for granted. In our hometown, one of these things either neglected or taken for granted is our heritage Lewis and Clark murals. The murals are especially unique to Whitehall. No other town, certainly in our area, perhaps in the state has anything even remote...

  • How To Make a Small Difference in a Big World

    Elizabeth Pullman, Whitehall Ledger|Jun 9, 2021

    I am always amazed when people tell me what they are passionate about. Whether it's music, skateboarding, video games or books, their passion for the topic shines through. The light in their eyes sparkle and their smiles are genuine. But when someone tells me about a passion project that helps someone else in some small way - which could be a monumental way to those they are helping - that's truly amazing. Rhonda Brant Hampton, a local resident, stopped into my office to let me know about the...

  • Go Ask Jo: 6/9/2021

    Jo|Jun 9, 2021

    Dear Jo, I am a people pleaser, have been all my life. It literally pains me to have people not approve of what I am doing and how I am doing it. I know it is not healthy either physically nor mentally to be this way. How do I gather the confidence to make decisions and go about my life without seeking the approval of others? Signed, Exhausted People Pleaser Dear People Pleaser, Ahhhhh, I have suffered from that one during my life also. I think everyone would like to be accepted and approved of, it is just more pleasant and easier. BUT, you...

    Elizabeth Pullman, Whitehall Ledger|Jun 9, 2021

    The Whitehall Ledger received several dozen phone calls, emails, and Facebook messages in the past few weeks, all asking the same question. “What is going on in Waterloo?” Many had noticed that a film crew was outside Waterloo, with actors in period-correct costumes for the fur-trader time period.

  • Connecting Point: More Than a Member

    Bill Lanes|Jun 9, 2021

    I have been entertaining the question: What will the church be? History says the church in the world builds life. “You cannot pray at home, like you can at church, where there is a great multitude; where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the unions of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, and the prayers of priests,” (John Chrysostom). It is so in America I would more than argue. Our early foundations are directly tied to churches. Now nearly 250 years later we are...

  • FDA Approves Aducanumab for Alzheimer's Disease

    Jun 9, 2021

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today approved aducanumab (Biogen/Eisai) to treat Alzheimer’s disease. This is the first drug that slows Alzheimer’s disease.

    Elizabeth Pullman, Whitehall Ledger|Jun 9, 2021

    Whitehall resident Shirley Baustian is known for her friendly smile and wonderful personality - but did you know she is an accomplished children's book author as well as illustrator? Her children's book series "Good Friends," which features a moose and his mouse friend, was spawned from a misunderstanding of language. "We were in Sweden when a friend of mine said, looking way off in the distance, 'Oh!! Look!! A mouse just went by!' and I laughed because I was amazed by how great his eye sight...

  • Ledger: Looking Back 25 Years June 6, 1996

    Catherine Ellerton, Whitehall Ledger|Jun 9, 2021

    JUNE 6, 1996 Montana may be the “Last of the Big Time Splendors” and Butte may be the “Can-Do City” but how does one identify Jefferson County? That’s exactly the question people often ask, according to the Jefferson County Economic Development Task Force.

  • JeffCo Health Department Update: 6/9/2021

    Pam Hanna RN, Jefferson County Public Health Supervisor|Jun 9, 2021

    The past few weeks have allowed me some time for reflection on the past year. Here is no doubt this has been a difficult year. Our lives and routines have been disrupted. We have been pushed outside our comfort zones and have faced the fragility of life. As a society I am hearing more and more that we want to “go back to normal.” I have been thinking about what that normal is going to look like. I often joke that at our house “normal” is a dryer cycle. Maya Angelou has said, “If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know...
