    Roger Dey, BVD|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    The Lincoln Fireman's Ball was the latest local event to make a comeback as the COVID-19 pandemic wanes and restrictions loosen up. Normally scheduled a weekend in March around St. Patrick's Day, the Ball had to be cancelled last year as the Lewis and Clark Public Health began implementing restrictions related to the spread of the novel coronavirus. Instead they hosted a successful auction via Facebook to help raise funds for the fire company. Despite the success of last...

  • The Cost of Living

    Tammy Jordan|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Has anyone else notices the slight yet growing cost of everything lately, or is it just me? Everything from food prices and gas prices to the ridiculous cost of building materials and more. I’m one of those “track my money” folks because I live on a budget. I know how much money I bring home from my various jobs. I know what should go into savings, what I have to spend on necessities like food, clothing, gas, pet needs, etc., and how much “fun money” I have to do with as I...

  • Guest Editorial: Against Leftwing Extremism in the Military

    Matt Rosendale -R, U.S. Representative Montana|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Our institutions aren't what they once were. Opinion polls show overwhelmingly that trust in the government, in Congress, and in business has fallen in previous years and remains low. One exception is the military, which is consistently among our most respected institutions. This reputation has been hard-won, over decades of apolitical service to the nation. Americans recognize that service by honoring our servicemen and women, and extending our armed forces enormous respect...

  • Northern Rockies Blacksmiths gather in Lincoln for 'hammer in'

    Jason and Tiana Valler|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    “When you have a hammer, everything is a nail. When you have a blacksmith, everything is anything you want it to be” It seems today that the word “blacksmith,” most often calls to mind the image of the farrier shaping shoes for horses. While it is true that a farrier is a blacksmith, a blacksmith isn't necessarily a farrier. As the quote above shows, blacksmithing is much more. It is the art of forging metal using tools like a hammer, an anvil and a forge to make objects which range from tools to hooks to gates, hinges to scu...
