Letters to the Editor


The Editor:
Be it right or wrong, a day of heroism or calumny, June 25, 2001 marks the 125th anniversary of the battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876.
Even though by now it is but a footnote in history, let us pause and remember the brave men, on both sides, who gave their lives that hot Montana day.

The Editor:
We would like to thank everyone who made the Skywater parade a great success. Special thanks go to Jim Jorgenson, the MC; Angel DeWitt, Kim Buxton, Maggi Spencer, and everyone else who stepped up to help the parade run smoothly.
Not only are volunteers essential to organize and run the parade, but the entries are what really made it happen. It’s not easy to get your entry ready and wait in line two hours just to show for a half an hour. The Hrutfiord family spends a great deal more time than that just to drive the tractors to the parade and back!
The dedication of the parade entrants is really what makes a good parade. Thank you.
Sue Spencer and Laurie Hart
