Did these conservation groups learn nothing from the catastrophic and expensive fire outside of Lincoln a couple of years ago. Now, instead of some habitat, there is nothing but charred landscape which is subject to weed infestations, erosion, etc. If the Forest Service is prevented from …

What is with this recent rash of teens going missing? Is this some kind of game to get their 15 minutes of fame and/or their photo in the paper? Luckily they have so far been found safe, but have they heard the expression "crying wolf"? Maybe they should be held responsible for …

Well, it is clear that Mr. Collins doesn't give a rip for Helena, since he is trying to climb the Hill (Capitol Hill) on the backs of its citizens. And what a surprise, he's a Democrat. Given the timing, it seems like being mayor of Helena was just a way to get a foot in the political door…

While I agree that it doesn't make sense to not spend $150 to collect $75, it isn't necessarily fair to let people who use services (roads, water, sewer, and other things paid for with property taxes). I have trouble paying my property taxes too (and income taxes, vehicle license, insurance…
