LR-126 isn't in line with democracy; Vote no

At the very heart of our identity as Americans is that we have a democratically-elected government. Voting is an essential right to us as citizens, and we are very proud of that right. We are a nation that values opportunity and basic fairness.

We can do better than coal

Regarding his letter of June 26, I respectfully suggest that Phillip Boggio use a less ad hoc method to learn about global warming and what is causing it. The scientific community has a powerful, rigorous process for ascertaining truth and is inherently very skeptical and conservative in rea…

Shutdown is a failure of American values

We are all stronger when we work together to build our community, state and nation. Our representative government functions well when it engages in healthy debate so that the best path forward emerges from the marketplace of ideas. The current federal shutdown, unfortunately, is a failure of…

County residents deserve better than Lenington

After reading his bile-filled letter to the editor on Aug. 25, I think Max Lenington, the Yellowstone County assessor, treasurer and county superintendent of schools, is unfit to serve the public. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion (or someone else's), not everyone has the quali…

Support of coal export ignores needs of residents

In the county commissioners' rush to support the export of coal to Asia (April 17), they failed to consider the needs of Yellowstone County residents. While there may be economic benefits to some of mining Montana coal, there are also a number of costs borne by others.

Guest opinion: New law empowers developers to make offers landowners can't refuse

Until you’ve been threatened by a company trying to take possession of your land, eminent domain probably doesn’t mean much to you. When a developer knocks on your door, saying it needs a 60-foot swath through your land and that you should sign an agreement for the good of the public, you ma…
