Thought Provokers: 11/24/2021

Dear Editor: COVID-19 Vaccines and Our Kids

Dear Editor, I realize that this is a rather touchy and perhaps even volatile issue, but it needs to be addressed if only to further educate people. This letter is in response to last week’s Letter to the Editor, co-authored by Timothy Bennett and...

Dear Editor: Clean Up After Yourselves!

Dear Editor, We’ve lived in Whitehall for over 17 years. It has been a sweet little town to raise our girls in! People caring about one another, neighbors watching out for neighbors, very few litterbugs or people breaking the law. However, it...

Dear Jo: 11/24/2021

Connecting Point: Leftovers

In conversation last week, many people in two different states shared worries of pending economic trouble. Uncertainty might be the keyword; Montana might be more secure than other parts of the country. I don’t like doomsday talk at Thanksgiving....

5 Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays Year Round

Thought Provokers: 11/17/2021

We have collectively accepted the standard of tying shoelaces, while there are so many other different ways to tie. If Apple and Android ever come together to have the same charger, the world will know peace. Sneezing while driving is honestly a near...

Go Ask Jo: 11/17/2021

Dear Jo, I’ve got a question for you. I hope this isn’t beyond the pale or anything, but why is it becoming more and more acceptable for women, models especially, to let it all hang out so to speak, as long as that slippery little (she) devil,...

 

Connecting Point: Second Helpings

Thanksgiving: a break for many; a burden to many more. I admit to being old-fashioned in this and it will be a break for most of my household, except the cook. If only the country would go back to the time of rest around the holidays. Some go hungry...

Dear Editor: Climate Change in Whitehall

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...

 

Dear Editor: Improvements at the Museum

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,...

 

Thought Provokers: 11/10/2021

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...

Dear Jo: 11/10/2021

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...

 

Connecting Point: Just One Drop

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...

 

Horoscopes: Week of 11/10/2021

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, someone is appealing to your softer, more sensual side lately and you’re not quite sure how you feel about it. Showing emotions is not a sign of weakness. Enjoy the attention. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you’ve...

 

Dear Editor: Election Laws vs Jim Crowe Laws

Dear Editor, In last week’s paper, I read with sadness a letter to the editor comparing election laws to Jim Crowe laws. I say sadness because this person has absolutely no idea what the Jim Crowe laws were. She was just parroting a political...

 

Thought Provokers: 11/3/2021

Most, if not all, rubber erasers are never actually finished, people just lose them eventually. Alligators can live up to 100 years, which is why there’s a chance that they will see you later. Ironically, it’s the fear of a shortage of a given...

Go Ask Jo: 11/3/2021

Dear Jo, There are life changing moments in everyone’s life; a moment, an opportunity to do something that could turn their life in a new direction. I have such an opportunity. It will cost me financially, not to mention the stress of a loan, the b...

 

Thought Provokers: 10/27/2021

The thermal shock of turning on a light is allegedly what wears it out, yet the light in the refrigerator seems to require very little replacement. Because of streaming, we all have a movie that we watched for the very last time on DVD or Blu-Ray,...

 

Dear Editor: More Talk than Action

To the Editor: Between January 1 and September 27 of this year, at least 19 states enacted 33 laws that make it harder for Americans to vote—and more will come out of GOP-held state legislatures unless we end the filibuster and protect our voting r...
