  • Churrasco

    Dick Geary, Featured Columnist|Updated Dec 4, 2019

    God never send'th mouth but he sendeth meat. John Heywood c.1497 - c.1580 Via cell video calling I visited with some friends in Brazil this week. They were at a churrasco (shur-has'-ko), the ubiquitous weekend pastime of American picnics with roasted meat and drinks. They often include rice and beans with the meal, and it's not rare to see boiled mandioca. But it's just the meat, roasted on a spit over an open hardwood fire, that is the mandatory fare. And cold beer - there...

  • Letter: Read more, listen more

    Updated Dec 4, 2019

    I am so sad that apparently decent, intelligent Americans like Larry Dillree can be so unwilling to accept facts. (BVD 11/13/19). Facts are not political, but often our opinions are shaped by facts so we have a responsibility as citizens to get the facts right. Before Mr. Dillree says, “ the Democrats have spent the last three and one half years doing nothing,” he should look at the record. Dozens of bills, many with bipartisan support, have been passed: criminal justice ref...

    Connie McAfferty, BVD|Updated Dec 4, 2019

    The Drummond Junior High Trojans marched into Lincoln Tuesday, Nov. 14th to open a two game after-school contest with the Lincoln Lynx. First up was the younger "B" squad of 5th and 6th graders who played with lots of exuberance, put up lots of shots, and even made a bucket every now and then. Ditto for Drummond. The numerous vocal Trojan fans kept their players jacked up, but the tight score, which was tied up six times, motivated the hometown crowd to cheer their boys on, to...

    Leanne McCrate|Updated Dec 4, 2019

    Dear Readers, Soon we will be celebrating one of America's favorite holidays, a day our ancestors set aside to give thanks for a plentiful harvest. It's a time to reconnect with friends and family we haven't seen in a while, with lots of food, fun, and football. Many of us will settle in for a big meal with turkey and dressing, and pumpkin pie. We may eat more than usual, become a bit drowsy, take a nap, wake up and eat some more! There has been an age-old tale that it's the...

  • Op/Ed: The public takes a back seat to politics on the PSC

    Roger Koopman, District 3 Commissioner, Montana PSC|Updated Dec 4, 2019

    The Public Service Commission has always been a somewhat surly bunch. The PSC's devoted staff has often had to deal with varying degrees of political game-playing, deception, threats and intrigue. Sure. Politicians politic. The question is, at the end of the day, can elected officials bury their egos and ambitions long enough to put the people's business ahead of their own? Recent events would suggest that where the Montana PSC is concerned, the answer is "no." That might...

  • Irish Needed

    Roger Dey, BVD|Updated Dec 4, 2019

    At one time in American history, signs declared "No Irish Needed." To that, Polson's Irish music quintet, the Montana ShamRockers, say "Oh, really?" The Montana ShamRockers highlighted the irony of those old sentiments with their free performance at the Lincoln Community Hall Thursday evening, Nov. 14, as part of a tour of small Montana towns. Designed as a tribute to America's veterans, their show "No Irish Needed" provided a heavy dose of patriotism bound in Irish pride as...
