Recipe of the Week

2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup cubed bread
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a small saucepan, cook broccoli in water until crisp-tender; drain. Place in a greased 11×7-in. baking dish; set aside.
Combine the chicken, soup, mayonnaise, cheese and curry powder; spoon over broccoli. Top with bread cubes and butter. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
The reprehensible and overwhelming part of politics in our country
Never in my lifetime of 66 years has the state of politics in our country become so reprehensible and overwhelming in its scope that one can’t help but feel completely hopeless. But giving up is not an option if we care about our children and generations to come, so where can we begin to heal? Right here at home. Marv Sather, candidate for House District 1, moved to Libby with his family from Somers, Montana when he was 3 years old. He graduated from Libby High School and taught here for 25 years. He understands Libby and I can think of no one better in our community to lead the healing process than Marv Sather.
I have known Marv for 40 years as an educator extraordinaire, adored and respected by students, parents and coworkers alike. As well as being an exemplary and nationally recognized teacher, he was an effective leader in numerous capacities from local to state and national level issues in education.
Marv Sather is a mindful, logical thinker and a gifted writer and communicator. He will bring to the job honesty, kindness, strength, a tireless work ethic, and a willingness to listen to, and consider, all points of view without a party line filter.
Marv is his own man, makes his own decisions, and does so with great conscience. His character and judgment will go a long way in restoring respect and integrity to the process of government. I urge your thoughtful consideration of Marv Sather for HD 1.

Sally Sauer Community Medical Fund
The Sally Sauer Community Medical Fund was established in the early 1990’s when Sally Sauer had a sudden illness that damaged her heart. Our community stepped up and did what we do best. We rallied together to help someone with a health need. Funds left over after Sally’s financial needs were met, went into a fund to help others. The Sally Sauer Community Medical Fund continues to function today, assisting folks with medical expenses – funded by the caring of our community. When a young girl named Amanda needed help, we each donated an hour’s wage in a campaign called “Hour Amanda”. When Kyle Rosling needed heart surgery, his high school friends championed a drive called “Kids for Kyle”. WINGS was created in 1997 to reach out to patients and families who have to travel outside of Lincoln County for cancer treatment — assisting with food, travel and lodging. Every year, we as a community dig deep and help fund this worthwhile program. Seems like there are always raffles, meals and a variety of benefits going on created by friends and relatives to help out someone they love who is/has suffered an injury, surgery or cancer. Many, many times we have banded together to help our community members who are facing a medical need/crisis.
Now we face the COVID 19 crisis in our community. We always come together to help our neighbors. To me, that’s what Libby does. When I wear my mask, I wear it because I care about my neighbors. I wear it because I’m from Libby and caring is what we do!
