  • Thought Provokers: 9/21/2022

    Sep 21, 2022

    There’s no way that guy with the fistful of money at the underground street fight remembers the odds everyone took AND who they bet on. Humanity will never reach a point where automation takes care of all our basic needs while capitalism exists because it won’t be profitable to do so. The most average person in the world is a 30-years-old, Chinese, male, who is 5 foot 9 inches tall and weighs 136 pounds. Gaining weight is a piece of cake. Cartoon characters never wear watches unless they are looking at their wrists. The fact that Cheech and...

  • Whitehall: On the Scene Heroes

    Rhonda Brant|Sep 21, 2022

    Editor's note: True heroes in Whitehall exist. On Monday, September 19 the Ledger received the following email and photos. The Ledger thanks Brant for sharing the story with everyone. Thank you, Patti and Brian, and all involved! I was down visiting my friend Patti [Kugler] on her porch when we noticed a pickup going by that was dragging a partially unrolled wire fencing. I commented, "that could start a fire" and it was not even a minute later, Patti jumped up and yelled FIRE! She called 911,...

  • Holstein Ready to Instill Pride of Craftsmanship in WHS Trojans

    ELIZABETH PULLMAN, Whitehall Ledger|Sep 21, 2022

    To say Rich Holstein has embraced Whitehall High School is an understatement - he's Trojan Pride to the fullest. Holstein, who is the new Industrial Arts teacher at WHS, has always had a "god-given gift" working with his hands and is looking forward to sharing his gift and knowledge with the students in his classes. Holstein has been in and around the Yellowstone area for the last 34 years and only recently settled in Whitehall after taking the IA position - his first teaching position ever. He...

  • TO THE PEOPLE OF JEFFERSON COUNTY: Why You Won't See Me on the Campaign Trail

    MARY JANACARO HENSLEIGH, Jefferson County Commissioner Candidate|Sep 21, 2022

    To the people of Jefferson County: I want to thank you for your support in the Primary Election, I really appreciate you. As we get closer to the General Election in November you will not see any banners, flyers, or posters of me. I do not believe in asking for or accepting other people's money for publicity. You can better use that money on gas, groceries, and childcare. I am not able to go around knocking on doors, all that Disco dancing in the 70s ruined my knees. I am more than happy to...

  • Just Ask Georgia: 9/21/2022

    Georgia|Sep 21, 2022

    Dear Georgia, I have a question. I’m a single mom going to college and living with my sister. A couple of weeks ago, I asked my neighbor, a very nice guy, if he could watch my kids for two hours while I went to class because my sister was not home. He agreed. If he babysits and doesn’t accept pay, can I sue him for child support because he took on a fatherly role? I’m sure I can convince a court that he accepted a fatherly role, which is how who owes child support is determined in my home state. I really need this money. What do you think...

  • Ledger Looking Back 25 Years: 9/17/1997

    RITA BROWN, Whitehall Ledger|Sep 21, 2022

Ness was riding in a hay swather on the Bill Gillespie ranch when the swather hit a bump. Ness and another youth were pitched forward and knocked the window out of the front of the swather cab. Ness tumbled out and hit her head on the sickle and suffered a fractured skull. The other youth held on to the ledge of the swather and was unhurt. The Jefferson County Commission...

  • This Month in Montana History: September

    RAEMARIE BRUCE, Jefferson County Museum|Sep 21, 2022

    September 17, 1851; 171 years ago: The Fort Laramie Treaty is signed by representatives of the United States, Cheyenne, Sioux, Arapaho, Crow, Assiniboine, Mandan, Hidasta, and Arikara nations.

The treaty was broken almost immediately by white settlers moving into what is now Colorado and Kansas. September 16, 1855; 167 years ago: Montgomery H. Parker is born in Kentucky. He moved to...

  • Connecting Point: Go With Grace

    BILL LANES|Sep 21, 2022

    Most people aspire toward greatness. Even the most passionless person aspires in some area or hobby to do it well. Boys and girls, men and women dream of achieving accolades in sports, acting, a career, etc. “The sky is the limit” goes the saying, yesterday but today, too. My goal is to grow in Christ-like qualities. What about you? Virtues of Christ are admired universally by others. We surely relish when another person extends us mercy, maybe, especially if we don’t deserve it. Of course, patience is welcome when we are on the recei...

  • Douglas Ohren, 51

    Sep 21, 2022

Following high school, he began working with his dad doing construction and later moved to Twin Bridges to work on the ranch as a hunting guide. It was there that he met and lived with Bonnie Klose. Together they had one child, who...

  • Two Perspectives on Electric Vehicles (EVs)

    CAREY BURNSIDE and COLTON ANDERSON|Sep 21, 2022

    To anyone considering purchasing an electric vehicle, I urge you to reconsider. These vehicles are incredibly dangerous on our streets and highways and can be deadly to drivers and passengers. They are not as eco-friendly as the marketing would have you believe. This month local firefighters had the opportunity to learn about the dangers of electric vehicles and the impact they have, taught by a national company, presented to towing companies and emergency responders. EVERY firefighter needs this class and government officials should become...

  • Sew Unique Opens in Whitehall on Briggs Lane

    ELIZABETH PULLMAN, Whitehall Ledger|Sep 21, 2022

    If there's one thing Wendy Turner knows, it's quilting. That's why she's excited to open Sew Unique Custom Quilting and Retreat just outside of Whitehall on Briggs Lane. Turner, who is the daughter of Wayne and Sherrie Turner, opened the custom-built space in September after closing her shop in Philipsburg due to rental increases. "It's good to be home," she said, smiling at her mother. Turner got her love of the art form from her mother and grandmother, quilting in 4H was she was around seven...

  • Montana Decides: If It Moves (or Doesn't), Tax It

    JON STONE GOFF, Montana Decides|Sep 21, 2022

    Most of you recall the famous quote from Ronald Reagan, “Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” Yes, that means real property as well, which tends to not move but is taxed to help cover the costs of running schools and local governments. My last article, “When You Find Yourself In a Hole Stop Digging” which is still available at www.montanadecides....

  • Creating Fiction from History: 9/21/2022

    CHARLES HADDON SHANK|Sep 21, 2022

    The year was 1930. Even with all the hubbub going on further east over the stock market crash of the year previous, the jazz scene in Milwaukee was going strong! Now known as Bronzeville, the jazz district would later host greats such as Duke Ellington and Herbie Hancock; less well-known perhaps, but no less remarkable, was little Harriet Smith, now known as Hattie Smythe. When Harriet's parents passed away within less than a year of each other, Harriet was just turning 18. This was in 1922 and...

    MORGAN MARKS, The Jason Foundation|Sep 21, 2022

    If you’ve ever dealt with someone making threats against you, been the subject of physical or verbal attacks, had rumors said behind your back, or been purposely excluded from a group, then you know what it’s like to be bullied. October is recognized as National Bullying Prevention Month. A time to raise awareness and focus on bullying.
