  • Letter to the Editor

    Sep 19, 2018

    Dear Editor, Just west of our little ranch on North Willow Creek lies a town that once burst at the seams with mines and miners. Pony, Mont., boasted 5,000 people, banks, bars, schools, churches and a rail-line. Mines with romantic names like Boss Tweed and Clipper dotted the hills above town. Between the 1870s and the 1920s, millions of dollars of gold came out of the hills. After the 1920s, when the gold played out, so did the people. Today, our little town upstream of the ranch has one heck of a fun bar and fewer than 200 really good people...

It is an office where experience and independence matter most. Here’s why: In Montana, the entire judicial branch is elected, and along with...
