  • From My Perspective: Don't Let the Time Pass

    Tamy Jordan|Updated May 17, 2023

    One day it just hits you that time is moving fast, barreling forward and it isn't waiting for you. Nor will it stop. It makes me wonder why I, and probably so many others, keep putting things off. Not just things, but important things, and often people, too. Well, the truth is I don't so much wonder why I do it. I know the reason, but to say it's a good reason would be a lie. The truth of the matter is there really is no good reason or excuse to do so. We put things off with...

  • Governor nixes pay bump for Montana legislators

    Eric Dietrich, Montana Free Press|Updated May 16, 2023

    Gov. Greg Gianforte has vetoed a bill raising the wages paid Montana legislators, arguing the proposed increase - from about $16 to $24 an hour starting in 2025 on top of already-approved per-diem increases - was disproportionate to increases the Legislature had authorized for state employees. "As has been the case since before our nation's founding, public service comes with personal sacrifice - long hours away from home, less time with family, and appropriately limited compe...

  • Only God fully appreciates influence of a Christian mother

    From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham, Billy Graham Literary Trust|Updated May 16, 2023

    Q: My mother claims to be a Christian but there is no evidence of it at home. How can this be? - B.M. A: Living for Christ in the home is the acid test for any Christian. It's far easier to live an excellent life among our friends when we're putting our best foot forward and are conscious of public opinion, than it is to live for Christ at home. Our own family circle knows whether Christ lives in and through us. A true Christian will not give way at home to bad temper, impatie...

  • Letter: Fiscal responsibility shouldn't come at the expense of taxpayers

    Updated May 16, 2023

    I applaud Representative Matt Rosendale for being one of the strongest advocates for fiscal responsibility in DC. As negotiations between the White House and Republicans have had little success, our congressman has continued to voice strong solutions that will keep the US from defaulting on its debt. Both parties admit that defaulting on our nation's debt is the wrong course for the US. But unless Democrats are willing to cut back on their erratic spending, a deal will not be...
