  • Dear Editor: China Funds Universities

    JIM BUTERBAUGH|Nov 30, 2022

    Dear Editor, As Vladimir Lenin said: control education, control the future. Well, it was something to that effect. Other nations understand this and use it to some extent in the United States. But no one has influenced education in the U.S. as China has. And yet most parents in America are unaware. A 2021 Lawfare Project poll notes that almost 60% do not know that China and other countries are major contributors to colleges. In 2021, the University of Houston received $32 million dollars from the Dalian Maritime University, which is run by the...

  • Dear Editor: Government Needs to Get Off Our Backs

    DON LEPINSKY|Nov 30, 2022

    Dear Editor, Will congress enact more corporate tax cuts now that Republicans have taken control of the House of Representatives? Will they extend current corporate tax cuts? How about tax cuts for the rest of us? That’s right, 95% of us do not own stocks and bonds. The bottom 95% of us on the income hierarchy are subject to individual federal tax rates that range from 10% to as high as 37%! What about us? I understand the necessity of paying taxes. Infrastructure, Social Security, Medicare, and the military are some of the necessary...

  • Thought Provokers: 11/30/2022

    Nov 30, 2022

    The ad for the first tv with colors must’ve been in black and white. Nothing makes you sweat like remembering you didn’t put on deodorant. Giraffes probably don’t know what their own farts smell like. It’s stupid to hate yourself for past mistakes when you don’t even know if these mistakes prevented even bigger mess-ups. It seems the richer and more famous someone gets, the more things they receive for free. Older televisions gave off that fuzzy static feeling when you touched the screen, and newer ones do not. Soon it will become a...

  • Just Ask Georgia: 11/30/2022

  • PTSA Announces Holiday Season Plans

    KYLIE HANSEN, Whitehall PTSA|Nov 30, 2022

    I wanted to update everyone on what has been going on with the Whitehall Schools PTSA. Our goal this year is to be more involved in community events and bring the community together with lasting memories. Since our first meeting for the year in September, we realized we had BIG ideas for our small town. We knew this would mean a lot of fundraising. Our first fundraiser was small but more or less about being involved. We joined in on the organization and planning of the fall festival carnival....

  • Connecting Point: Cultivating Grace

    BILL LANES|Nov 30, 2022

    I hope you had a great time with your family and friends this Thanksgiving. Traditions comprise a large portion of our daily lives, many without much thought or effort. Certainly, Thanksgiving dinners involve much effort, but I’m referring more to our attitude or disposition. Are we motivated by genuine gratitude, or do we pass out thanks carelessly? Most of us say “thank you” without much thought or emotion. It’s customary to thank the waitress when she brings the meal to the table. Are we thankful when the wait is long for that meal?...

    MATT OCHSNER, American Red Cross|Nov 30, 2022

    2022 has been a year of crisis for families across the country — from Hurricane Ian in Florida to historic flooding in Montana to the first-ever national American Red Cross blood crisis. “Whether a crisis is felt by an entire community or a single person, it turns lives upside down — especially for the most vulnerable,” said Nicole Sirak Irwin, regional CEO of the Red Cross of Idaho, Montana and East Oregon. “This holiday season, join us to provide help and hope for people in need during future emergencies by making a financial...

    The Whitehall Sustainability Committee (WSC), with oversight from Golden Sunlight Mine, was formed in 2022 to help Golden Sunlight rank community projects in the Whitehall area by a local advisory group.

  • MONTANA PARK OF THE WEEK Elkhorn State Park

    Nov 30, 2022

    Traveling along gravel secondary roads outside of Boulder, you'll find the once thriving town of Elkhorn, now one of the smallest state parks in the state. See the remnants of this 19th-century mining town preserved as examples of frontier architecture. Three-quarters of a mile up the main road that runs through town (just outside of the state park property) lies the town cemetery where visitors can see the tombstone of Swiss miner Peter Wys who originally discovered the silver veins in the...

  • Living With Grizzlies as Neighbors

    MOLLY ABSOLON, Writers on the Range|Nov 30, 2022

    When I was working with a Kenyan outdoor instructor in Wyoming's Wind River Range a couple of decades ago, he surprised me one day by saying, "Hiking here feels like a walk in the park." With armed guards, he was used to moving through wild places in Africa full of dangerous animals. He said he always felt vigilant on those trips, but in Wyoming's Winds? We weren't going to be threatened by anything larger than a GORP-seeking squirrel. But now, grizzlies have returned to the Wind River Range, a...

  • RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Chicken Stew with Herb Dumplings

    Nov 30, 2022

    Who couldn't use a little more free time in his or her day? Slow cookers can create that by enabling home chefs to set their ingredients to simmer early in the day and then head to work, school, recreational activities, pretty much whatever they need to get done, as the food cooks. Not being beholden to the kitchen is a benefit slow cookers offer. Since slow cookers cook foods slowly at low temperatures, they are quite handy and even can help people save money. Tougher cuts of meat or poultry...

  • Creating Fiction from History: 11/30/2022


    Technically, Anya wasn't Russian. Though she had lived in a rural area just south of Moscow since she was three, Anya Mussorgsky was actually from the good ole U.S. of A. She had been adopted by Russian diplomat and statesman Maxim Petrov Mussorgsky and his wife, Lady Katarina, during a routine visit to New York City. At the time, New York City was still a gathering point for much of the growing world's political business. As the young couple was not able to have children of their own, they...
