Helena has a chance to do the right thing.
In a town where political posturing and compromise passes mediocre laws every two years, we forgot to do something 60 years ago.
It’s not too late to complete this long needed tribute to a Helena native: Name the Helena airport after Gary Cooper, native to our town. Similar to the Orange County Airport renaming itself after its own John Wayne in 1979, Helena needs to step up to give tribute to one of our own. It’s the right thing, it’s a cool thing that has nothing to do with left or right, but just plain cool.
