Don't blame the APR

In my travels around the county this fall it’s been hard to miss the new signs: “Save the cowboy, stop American Prairie Reserve.” Apparently there’s some concern that the non-profit group...

The dogs approve

It’s a clear case of the inmates running the asylum. I simply need to accept that. My dogs tell me I’m too controlling. Sit. Stay. Come. Fetch. I’m always directing them. Or trying to. Not that...

I'm about six years late on this press release, but here it goes. I was hit with a shock wave of news when I found out that a building from my past was imploded in 2012. That building was the Grand...

 

I-186 jeopardize good paying jobs, I'll be voting no

While in Helena at the legislature, I work to pass legislation that encourages good paying jobs and a clean environment. I know that you do not have to choose one over the other. I-186 is proposing to jeopardize those good paying jobs, and possibly...

 

A social person

My wife tells me I’m a very social person. I nod and smile, all the while thinking, “What are you talking about?” The truth is I spend most of my time in the company of dogs. There are many days...

Where's the compassion?

Dear Editor, The United States of America has become a nation of gross negligence and an empty way of thinking. It is also lacking respect, and compassion for all its citizens. It seems that its love for one another has waxed cold. Harry Carpenter,...
