Today's Opinions

  • Garris has proven leadership abilities

    It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tamara Garris for re-election to City Council to represent District 4. I have known her for 11 years.

  • Obama inherited a problem he helped create

    This letter is in response to Mary Reid’s letter, “Ability to vote is a privilege,” in the Sept. 23 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Liberals continue to believe ideas known as lies that are contradicted by the evidence in history for ideological reasons. They prove that they are so selfish they will jeopardize the public good just to keep from admitting they are wrong.

  • ‘Great tie debate’ of 2012 rages on

    Heeding Proverbs 17:28, I’ve been keeping my thoughts to myself about the upcoming presidential race.
    The notion that “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues,” is pretty sound advice.
    But I’ve finally had enough. No, it’s not soliciting phone calls, mass mailings, polls or a daily bombardment of e-mails that have me at the breaking point.

  • Why we should re-elect our sheriff

    For the first time anyone can remember, we get two choices for sheriff in the Nov. 6 general election – Barry Faile, our current sheriff, and Scott Case, a police officer from Great Falls.

  • Springs Memorial earns honor

    National recognition is nice and national recognition two straight years is, well, twice as nice.
    That’s what Springs Memorial Hospital earned from the Joint Commission – the leading accreditor of  health-care organizations in America.

  • Driving force

    I am a teenager. I stay up too late; I wake up too late. I get emotional. I don’t want my parents circling me like hawks, and I definitely don’t want them to try to tell me what to do, especially behind the wheel. However, now that students are back into the school routine, it’s time for everyone to pay attention to teen safety on the road.

  • Newspaper needs to explain health-care act

    This is in response to Shannon Catoe’s letter, “Catoe defends her facts,” in the Sept. 30 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Ms. Catoe, you may have read the health-care act, but obviously you did not read my letter. In it I stated that I have not talked to doctors, etc.
    I stated that I would like the newspaper to do an in-depth report and get facts, not just opinions and tell the whole story.

  • Woman pleads for information about man’s death

    As you have all heard, I lost my soulmate due to a hit-and-run or a very brutal attack on Sept. 8, 2012. This was not only a devastating loss for me, but also to my nine innocent children.
    Do you know children are a gift from God – a gift many people do not have the joy of experiencing. However, I am blessed. Great Falls is one awesome little town. Whoever says anything different needs to come speak with me.
