Dear Editor: Johnson #1

Dear Editor, This is in reply to the constant diatribes written by Gerald Johnson from Cardwell. Mr. Johnson, we get it. You don’t like guns, so don’t have one. If a person wants to kill another person, they can do it just as well with a knife,...

 

Thought Provokers: 9/22/2021

The phrases “You are alone” and “You are not alone” can be equally scary in the right context. Nightmares are our brains making up stories and then getting scared of its own made up story. People will swim in the ocean, even though there are...

 

Dear Editor: Johnson #2

Dear Editor, Not to be too negative, but this is getting ridiculous! Mr. Johnson’s latest representative statement, “People do not control guns. Guns control people” has become reductio ad absurdum (reduced to absurdity). Although I can...

Dear Jo: 9/22/2021

Dear Jo, What do you do when your spouse comes home after 30 year of marriage and simply does not want to be married anymore?! No reason, no big problem, no affair. How does a person come to terms with this?! Signed, Pissed off and confused Dear Piss...

 

Connecting Point: Grace and Truth

Lately the subject of generosity has been on my mind but as I read God’s Word, I’ve noticed how grace is an integral part of what it means to be generous. Jesus exemplified this in his life and ministry; he was both truthful and graceful. “An...

 

Horoscope: Week of 9/22

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 Attention to detail is very important this week, Aries. Be sure not to lose your focus as things you do will be highly scrutinized by others. Ask a third party to check your work. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Give others room to breathe a...

 

Dear Editor: Response to Gerald Johnson #1

Dear Editor, Once again (probably not for the last time either), I feel compelled to respond to Mr. Gerald Johnson’s almost ignominious “war” on firearms. I say almost because I do not believe he means to bring shame on his obviously favored...

 

Dear Editor: Response to Gerald Johnson #2

Dear Editor, I am writing this on September 11th, twentieth anniversary of the most horrific attack on America; when we lost a lot of our freedoms and family. I am going to make this short and sound as I don’t spend too much time with...

 

Dear Editor: People Kill People?

Dear Editor, So, some of you still hold to the addiction induced belief that “guns don’t kill people…” That may be true in an alternate universe using alternative facts showing that people are in control, but not in this universe. In this...

Go Ask Jo: 9/15/2021

Dear Jo, I have been waiting for so long to meet someone who I am attracted to. I am definitely attracted to the new man in my life. We have a problem though. He has a habit of scratching his, well, you know. He not only does his scratching in...

Connecting Point: Without Condition

Serving God involves an abandonment to Christ and his leadership. In order to follow Jesus we will always have to make the assessment to either be all in or not, there is no middle ground. In fact, such a commitment may involve sacrifice and...

 

Guest Opinion Response: Distortion of Our News

A few years ago, I heard a comment on the radio which made a strong impression on me. A member of the Heritage Foundation, a well-known and respected conservative organization, was being interviewed by a reporter for the New York Times. The member wa...

 

Guest Opinion: Mask Mandates in Our Schools

The Montana Nurses Association has referred to the recent emergency rule from Montana DPHHS regarding not masking in school as “promotion of junk science.” One might be wise to use caution as well as introspection in using such a bold statement....

 

Horoscope: Week of 9/15/2021

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 If you’re single, get prepared to mingle, Aries. If you’re attached, then your relationship will only grow stronger in the days to come. Romance is in the air, so embrace it. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, even if you’re feeli...

 

Dear Editor: Afghanistan and Our Wars

Dear Editor, So, Afghanistan. The War on Terror. America’s “Longest” War. Right? Not even close. Not even in the ballpark. The U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs say non-native Americans, AKA U.S. Army, waged war on Native America from...

 

Dear Editor: COVID-19 Vaccs

Dear Editor, Again, I felt compelled to voice my opinion on the question of vaccination, particularly for the COVID-19 “virus.“ As I said in my previous letter on this subject, I do not plan to get vaccinated, but neither will I condemn (or...

 

Dear Editor: Enough said!

Go Ask Jo: 9/8/2021

Dear Jo, Halloween is coming. I love Halloween. I watch the shows, love the decorations, I even dress up. The reason I am writing is I have had some people say that Halloween is too close to evil, the devil, that to celebrate it means opening myself...

 

Connecting Point: Called to Serve

Being overly materialistic is a cancer that destroys people and churches. A blind spot, materialism will grow without a healthy conscience to check it. Pastor Timothy Keller says, “The Bible describes us to be a ministry provider not a ministry...

 

Guest Opinion: Some 9/11 Toxic Leftovers

September 11, 2001 was one of those days, like November 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Most Americans alive in 1963 can remember the exact moment they heard that JFK had been shot. It is seared into their memories. So,...

 

Horoscope: Week of 9/8/2021

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, this week you can share some secrets that have been troublesome. A trusted confidante may offer advice or be willing to serve as a supportive sounding board. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a welcoming aura is drawing others...

 

Once in Awhile, I Rant...

Fall is in the air! The nights are cooler, the mornings call for a light sweater, and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING is as far as the eye can see. This also means my craziest, funnest, most loved time of...

 

Dear Editor: Response to Gerald Johnson

Dear Editor, Yes, here is yet another response to Gerald Johnson’s stance on gun control. As he seems to target the events of December 14th, 2012 (Sandy Hook), we’ll start there. Whatever happened there, banning guns is NOT the answer! It should...

 

Dear Editor: Road Through Town

Dear Editor, Not sure if I should do this, but, while I was at Tona’s Treasures this past week, when a semi passed by, it felt like an earthquake! It sure puts the glassware at risk. The truck didn’t seem to be speeding. I wonder about the road...

Dear Jo: 9/1/2021

Dear Jo, I have a business idea. It, in my opinion, is a great one! I love to garden and know that chickens can help control pests and fertilize at the same time. If I could bring pet chickens to peoples gardens, for a fee, gardens would benefit...
