To the Editor:
Friends and Neighbors:
All of you who vote, our next election of County Board Members happens April 5, 2022. Electing Board Members who will insist that our County Government needs to be run like a business HERE!!
We need folks who ask questions about how and why they spend our hard earned money! Our current Board and it’s Leadership are Rubber Stamping spending.
There are many seats being challenged this cycle which is long OVERDUE.
In the business world if income doesn’t cover expenses the Owner finds out why and makes changes or simply goes out of business.
The current Board approves spending with little question and if income doesn’t cover spending, they increase taxes or add things like Wheel taxes.
We are in need of BIG changes, so make sure to learn about who is running to represent your area on the Lincoln County Board and vote for CHANGE!
Thank you for your time.

– Regards,
Chuck Bolder

“If you live among wolves, you have to act like wolves. – Nakita Krushchev”
Another young girl is dead. Her life taken by a 13 time felon who walks freely on our streets. Many walk freely amongst us due to a failed system of “rehabilition” yielding 75% repeat offenders. A system supported by liberal politicians, laws, judges, and district attorneys. As a result, to defend ourselves we acquire concealed carry permits, carry loaded guns and mace, lock our doors, bar our windows, use surveillance systems, and adapt other measures to protect ourselves.
Using the laws of probability, and with statistics, we can see trends and predict future events with some level of certainty. Here are some trends. Our borders are being invaded, drugs ravish our society, mobs burn our cities, inflation runs rampant, high crime rates and homicides setting new records, movements to defund the police, illegal aliens smuggling drugs being secretly released into our cities, criminals released without due punishment, police officers savagely gunned down in our streets, abandoning our allies in places of war, elections lacking integrity, grocery shelves are barren, commodities for survival like gas and heating oil prices are at an all time high, a reckless press, threatened by global warming, politicians supporting socialism, etc., etc.
If we listen and learn, what happened in Washington was only a warning. Listen closely to whispers in the wind and you hear the words revolution, civil war, union recession. Listen closely and you shall hear the sounds of Paul Revere.

To the Editor:
Memories, I have had many in my years of life and recently my birthday.
Some are sad, happy, funny, a few moves, adjustments, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
I am enjoying life and I laugh, I cry, I smile, I talk, I play, and I pray.
Enjoy life, everyone. We only have one.
Always be kind.

To the Editor:
Wolves are beneficial. Gray wolves are beneficial to our ecosystems and our economy. Wolf-related tourism brings millions of dollars into Yellowstone communities annually. Killing the majority of the wolves in Montana and Idaho will be economically and ecologically damaging. And their impact on agriculture is minimal. Wolves account for less than one-half of one percent of cattle deaths annually. Poor care and disease are much graver concerns for agriculture.
