Since normal Easter Egg hunts will not be able to occur due to the COVID-19 threat, why not invite children to draw Easter eggs on paper, color them in and then post the artwork in home windows so families can drive around and “hunt” for eggs while practicing social distancing? Read Article

Setting aside Sen. Edie McClafferty’s failure to respond to my calls to her (“McClafferty on veterans: Setting the record straight,” March 25), she still hasn’t explained why she didn’t vote for legislation not to tax the retirement of military veterans. “Not all bills pass, especially if th… Read Article

I ha… Read Article

I read with amazement that Rep. Greg Gianforte was in Wisdom, Montana on Feb. 24 to showcase support for a $3.3 million high-speed broadband project in rural Beaverhead County.

This letter is a response to Greg Devries’ Feb. 26 Boulder Monitor editorial. Greg seems to have a low opinion of government, that it digs pits for us and shackles us with chains. We have made the state into a deity, but it is consuming our children’s inheritance like locusts. Not a pretty picture. Read Article

But after reading Mr. DeVries’ column I am very alarmed that he would endanger our health and safety to satisfy his myopic ideological agenda, especially with a v… Read Article

When I was about 10 years old, my father told me that living in a community comes with responsibilities. It is the responsibility of every person to give a little of themselves for the benefit of others, he said. Some people fundraise for the school, others plan events or take the time to br… Read Article

It is obvious that if conservatives were only as brilliant as liberals, we would quickly embrace the joys of socialism. We would put our trust in ever-growing government bureaucracy, happily working toward that glorious utopia where individuals need no longer make any decisions for themselve… Read Article
