Hubie Halloween

Hubie Dubois who, despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.

Recipe of the Week

Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 cup Coconut Oil (or canola oil)
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar (435 grams)
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Pumpkin (solid pack)
  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour (385 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

In a medium-size bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin in a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not overmix. Grease and flour two 9×5 loaf pans. Divide the batter between the two pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Local VFW POST 1548, opportunity to pay off mortgage through tax deductible charitable donations through Montana Grant

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States believe America is defined by how it threats those who sacrificed to protect it. We believe in protecting and fighting for those who were brave enough to fight for us. Whether on Capital Hill or in our communities, the VFW fights and defends the rights of America’s Veterans by lobbying for Veterans rights, helping Veterans and assisting Veterans further their education with scholarships and living assistance for them and their families. To do less, could be an unconscionable betrayal of our responsibilities as Americans and Veterans. VFW Post 1548 of Libby Montana strives every day to achieve these goals. In the past it has often times been very difficult to accomplish. Our local VFW has always been opened to Veterans and civilians alike. We provide a venue for many activities and community events, with many being to assist Non-profit organizations, to include Kootenai Pets for Life, Cabinet Peaks Auxiliary, Lincoln County Sno-Kats and many more. The American Red Cross and senior commodities are held in our events room every other month. Our Veterans provide Color Guard for community events, the Honor Guard is present when requested at all military funerals. Our volunteers proudly place American Flags at local businesses on Patriotic Holidays as well as providing a safe drop off for retired flags. We have a trained Veterans Service officer on site performing many functions to assist Veterans and their families with military related issues two days a week. We now find ourselves in a unique situation. We have an opportunity to pay off our mortgage. The window to do so is small. Through a Montana State grant, our interest is paid through to September 2021 with our principal balance of $125,000.00 to pay. We do not normally divulge our financial information to the public, however this rare opportunity may not happen again. Your local VFW is asking for help from the citizens of Libby to achieve our goal. It is our wish to be good stewards of our Post and the place it holds in our community.

Due to our 501 (c)19 nonprofit status, all donations are tax deductible. Please mark donations as Mortgage and we will provide the necessary paperwork required by the IRS for your tax deduction. Thank you for your consideration. VFW Post 1548 Membership

VA Health Care System in Montana

I’m a veteran, and through the VA Health Care System in Montana I’m able to get the care I need. 90% of all medications prescribed through the VA are delivered via the USPS. I receive several life saving medications through the mail. Normally it takes seven to ten days for my prescriptions to arrive, but thanks to Postmaster General DeJoy and his asinine changes to the Postal Service it takes two to three weeks for me to get my medication.

I also can’t order my prescriptions early to ensure I get them on time. As a result, I along with many other veterans have to go without life saving medications. This is the single greatest attack on veterans in the history of this country, and many will die as a result if nothing changes. We fight for our country only to be entirely forgotten about and left without the life saving medications we need.
