Golden Pen Award: King's dream lives in Billings people

Last Sunday I participated in the interfaith services held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. This was just one of the events that were scheduled for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. community celebration. Church leaders spoke of the teachings of King and what his impact was and still is on …

Legislature should order review of ranch land taxation

Many Montana ranchers' land taxes rose 25 percent or more last year. This appears to be due to complex revisions in rangeland taxation procedures and formulas instituted by the state Department of Revenue.

Golden Pen Award: Please wear your seat belt

As I sit here, reading news articles like I do almost every day, an emotional train of sadness, frustration and anger hits me like a ton of bricks. Again, I have to read a disturbing story about yet another person who has died due to not wearing their seat belt and getting into a car acciden…

Bison management agencies ineffective

I attended the Interagency Bison Management Plan (IBMP) meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 8, and was completely flabbergasted. I heard more talk about how to discuss the issues than any discussion on the issues themselves.

Put blue light in window to honor fallen law officers

Each year a national organization little known outside of the law enforcement community asks a simple act as the Christmas season approaches. Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) offers support to those left behind after the line of duty death of a law enforcement officer. COPS organizes the …

'Don't ask, don't tell' should be repealed

It is time to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." That's not just what I believe, but it has been clearly shown in a comprehensive study put out by the Pentagon that a vast majority of our men and women in uniform, as well as their families, support the repeal of this discriminatory policy. This vi…

No more tax cuts

Please do not cut taxes any further! If Sen. Baucus, Sen. Tester and Rep. Rehberg give the people a 2 percent tax reduction, businesses will only raise their prices by 4 percent. So what's the point?

Tester did good work on food safety bill

Sen. Jon Tester deserves a pat on the back for successfully protecting small farmers and food processors from the burdensome regulations in the food safety bill. Without his determined effort, the supply of fresh local foods for consumers would be in jeopardy. Kudos, as well, to The Billings…

Greed infects politics and health care

It is self evident that the love of money and power are at the root of most evil in this nation. Observe our partisan Congress and Wall Street dealings. Medical care costs are beyond reason. At one time, doctoring was a profession; today it's a lucrative business. Larger hospitals have a lot…

Christmas is, and should be, about God

Merry Christmas! With Thanksgiving past and the season of Christmas upon us, there seems to be a lack of joy and little holiday spirit. Some would say it's the economy, but it is more. We are poorer financially, poorer in our health, spirit and souls, while being busier to fill a void. Why i…

America must have a balanced budget

There are political ideologues in Washington who believe they can spend my money better than I can. Wrong — I have a balanced budget.

GOP does not represent all Americans

It is interesting that the Republican Party has not yet taken over our government. After Jan. 1, they will have. Still, they have taken control by holding the unemployed as hostages so that they can help the rich. I am talking about holding up unemployment benefits so that they may pass thei…

Cats depend on us to take care of them

It broke my heart to read Dr. Ed Jorden's column on Dec. 4 regarding the cat that was obviously sick and the owners put the cat outside instead of taking her/him to the vet. She or he now was vulnerable to other animals because the smell of being sick was obvious.
