Radicals are in charge

As I write this we are six days away from a government shutdown. Have no fear, our representatives are working feverishly on the problems of the American people.

Not roads, jobs, cost of food, taxes and Social Security, no. Our Sen. Steve Daines and Rep. Ryan Zinke have spent their time working to pass a bill that would expel Palestinians from the U.S. Some of whom have been here for generations. Is this a major problem?

Three weeks to elect a new speaker of the House.  Why? Because the last guy had the audacity to reach across the aisle to solve a problem for the American people. A small group of radicals, on both sides, are keeping this nation hostage.

The next time you vote, find out exactly what the candidate stands for, not a catchy phrase or what’s wrong with the other guy. What do they actually intend to do to make the country work for everyone?

Appreciates City Council coverage

As a regular reader of the Daily Inter Lake,  I want to say how much I appreciate the regular coverage of matters coming before City Council. 

A recent example is “City Council to weigh energy goals as part of bid for funds” by Derrick Perkins. This article gave us a concise explanation of the work session agenda. This is a great help and is easier to make sense of than visiting the city website.  

I was encouraged to stop in and commend the council for working on climate solutions. Likewise, the summaries of what went down at City Council are very helpful for any citizen who wants to stay engaged in the democratic process. 

Thank you and please keep up the good work.
