Go Ask Jo: 10/27/2021

Dear Jo, I live in a small town, which means everyone pretty much knows everyone else. Generations know generations. There is a home here in town that not only looks like a junkyard, but is home to a dog that has bitten people, and killed at least...

Thought Provokers: 10/20/2021

If tables only had 3 legs, they’d never wobble. Someone knows Lebron James as “The guy from the Space Jam movie.” The richer you are the easier it is to get things for free. Around good people, it feels like you can do anything. Around bad peop...

 

Dear Editor: Why the Attacks?

Dear Editor, Why are Montana Republicans attacking local control? Montanans cherish local control. Our treasured state constitution puts power in the hands of those who are elected in our communities, people like school board members and city and...

 

Dear Editor: Feeling Ignored

Dear Editor, Many of us here in Jefferson County are tired of party politics and feeling ignored by political elites who only care about their own agendas. These days it seems like elections are so partisan that no one really wins. We have to ensure...

Guest Editorial: Evolution, Not Expansion

This is in regard to the Whitehall Master Plan meeting, which was held October 6, 2021. I am by no means a politician or even much of a reporter, but I’ll be honest, I really didn’t take much home from said meeting. However, as the meeting...

Go Ask Jo: 10/20/2021

Dear Jo, Not only do I look younger that my 24 years, I apparently look like my husband’s sister instead of his wife. We constantly get comments about looking alike, those are not too bad. The awkward moments are when we are affectionate (respectfu...

Connecting Point: Hope in the Wind

COVID-19, the border crisis, inflation: are these stealing our sense of hope? Pessimism and wistful thinking keep many from enjoying the blessings of good cheer. The Oxford Dictionary defines wistful as “having or showing a feeling of vague or regr...

Whеn уоu dоn’t рunish реорle fоr brеaking thе rulеs, уоu’re рunishing реорle whо fоllоw thеm. Polish is the only word that sounds different with an upper case. Pronunciation for spells shouldn’t matter in Harry Potter...

 

Dear Editor: COVID in 2021

Hi Folks, I want to talk a little about COVID. During our first round of COVID-19 those with underlying conditions and the elderly were the populations most at risk from COVID. When younger, healthy people caught COVID their symptoms were fairly...

 

Dear Editor: Law in our town

Dear Editor, I’m not one to complain, because it is what it is, but what is being done about the drug problem in our normally peaceful little town? At least on the surface, Whitehall has been a thriving little community in the past and even to...

Dear Jo: 10/13/2021

Dear Jo, I need help! It’s been two years since my last confession. To be quite honest, it’s been almost that long since I have darkened a church doorstep. The problem is, if indeed it could be called a problem, is that it’s also been almost...

Connecting Point: Mandate of Mercy

In life we have an important choice between being merciful or vengeful. We most definitely are living currently in a culture that’s on pins and needles. People are at great odds over matters that shouldn’t drive us apart. The truth is, when someo...

New Faces Needed...

In a small town like Whitehall it is common to see the same faces over and over again. At the grocery store. At the library. At the post office. Small town life at its finest. However, the same faces at every committee meeting - that’s something...

 

Dear Editor: Mask Mandates

Dear Editor, Here in Jefferson County, particularly in our little burg of Whitehall, we have been pretty lucky when it comes to the mask mandate. Although health officials are still strongly recommending that we “mask up”, even those few...

 

Thought Provokers: 10/6/2021

There are two types of pet owners: Those who think their pet refer to them as “MOM/DAD”, and those who think their pet refers to them as “HUMAN”. People who can properly handle lottery winnings are the least likely to buy lottery tickets....

Go Ask Jo: 10/6/2021

Dear Jo, My daughter came to visit me a couple of weekends ago. I love when she visits! She is so much fun. Where is the problem, you ask? Well, my beautiful daughter was so excited to show me her new (and first) tattoo. I still cannot believe it,...
