    PAM HANNA RN, JeffCo Public Health Supervisor|Nov 10, 2021

    As many of you have heard, COVID-19 vaccination is now available to children aged 5-11 years of age. We have been listening to questions parents and caregivers have about getting their child vaccinated. I would like to share some of that information here. One of the top concerns for parents is safety of the vaccine in children. COVID-19 vaccines have and continue to undergo the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. Tens of thousands of volunteers have been involved in clinical...

  • Trojan Fans at Division Football in Boulder

    JENNIFER HOERAUF|Nov 10, 2021

    COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER OURSELVES: We often believe that a good sports team is made up of athletes, but it is much more than that! A good sports team needs dedicated coaches (thanks to them all); support from siblings, parents, and extended family; they need friends and community support! Love living in this town! Thanks to all who supported these boys!...

  • Dear Editor: Climate Change in Whitehall

    Charles Haddon Shank|Nov 10, 2021

    Dear Editor, As far as conspiracy theories go, one might note that the the subject of climate change has been growing in popularity over the past few years, maybe as much as a decade. I’m not a scientist, so I’m not even going to try to convince anyone either way as to whether there’s something to it, or even if it’s as bad as they say. I’m definitely not going to say either, that it’s all just a bunch of hogwash, because I know there’s SOMETHING to it, if only that it’s as simple as our Mother Earth protesting being raped (a comment that I’ve...

  • Dear Editor: Improvements at the Museum

    ARCYLLE SHAW, Cardwell, Montana|Nov 10, 2021

    Dear Editor, As the Jefferson Valley Museum continues to grow, financing becomes a problem. Thanks to the generosity of The Country Store, The Jefferson Valley Community Foundation, and Barrick Gold, a research/resource room will soon be completed and ready for service. Last year was particularly bleak with lack of visitors due to COVID-19, but it has been a much better 2021 season.

  • Thought Provokers: 11/10/2021

    Nov 10, 2021

    Everyone wants you to go the extra mile, but no one gives you the gas to do it. Dreams make no sense. One part of your brain is making up the story and another part is experiencing it and genuinely being surprised by what happens. Someone’s parent may have used you as a bad example for their kids. Cartoons are more fun to watch as an adult. It makes it easier to notice the jokes and secret messages that you would have missed as a kid. There is a chance that someone you know will use your death as an excuse to get out of a social obligation t...

  • Dear Jo: 11/10/2021

    Jo|Nov 10, 2021

    Dear Jo, Here they come! The holidays, that is! Along with all that “holiday spirit” come the expectations, the inevitable weight gain, seeing family you might be better off keeping your distance from, etc. It’s not like I’m all HUMBUG or anything. I just have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. How can I make it?! Any ideas? Signed, Not a Grinch Dear Grinch, Well, there is no avoiding it; the holidays come whether we are ready or not. Although you say you are not a grinch, nor a humbug, your letter leads me to believe you actuall...

    Billy Joe Bowen|Nov 10, 2021

    My Ole Man He was a giant, when I was a kid But I was always trying, to do everything he did I still remember, no matter how hard, every lesson he taught me Growing up, just learning how to be like My Ole Man He was a giant, a lion, and father of his pride But as I got older, I became defiant And he made me walk the line He knew, someway, somehow, When to lift me up and when to let me fall Looking back, he always had a plan My Ole Man His hands always callous, his clothes sometimes dusty, My...

  • Connecting Point: Just One Drop

    Bill Lanes|Nov 10, 2021

    For a moment, picture yourself as Bob Ross or Picasso and on your palette there is only white and black paint. No matter how many times you mix the two colors together the results will always be a shade of gray. One drop of black dramatically changes the tone of the white, never to be pure white again. Many remark that we are living in a gray world, asserting that truth is often canceled. I, for one, believe truth still matters. Wholesome virtues have been part of human society: truth versus deceit is a long standing battle. The noble trait of...

    What if you were in an accident and were in intensive care for several weeks? What if you got COVID-19 and spent time in the hospital? Who would manage your finances while you were getting well? Who would protect the assets you have worked so hard to accumulate? A financial Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal tool that could help, said Kaleena Miller, MSU Madison-Jefferson Extension Agent. Montanans Marge and Jack have each executed a POA and have shared their reasons for doing so. Marge, age 79, is aware she becomes stressed when faced with...
