Book of the Week

On A Quiet Street” By Seraphina Nova Glass

Who wouldn’t want to live in Brighton Hills? This exclusive community on the Oregon coast is the perfect mix of luxury and natural beauty. Stunning houses nestle beneath mighty Douglas firs, and lush backyards roll down to the lakefront. It’s the kind of place where neighbors look out for one another. Sometimes a little too closely…

Movie of the Week

Ms. Marvel

Kamala Khan is a superhero fan with an imagination, particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel; Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home, that is until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s looked up to.

The Voices of Lincoln County Residence

A 2022, US Congressional proposal (HR 1755) to create more wilderness acres in Montana, I am not in favor of.

Northwest Montana is already home to the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness, Bob Marshall Wilderness, Great Bear Wilderness, Scapegoat Wilderness, Mission Mountain Wilderness and the Rattlesnake Wilderness and National Recreation Area. Is that enough?  Well then, consider the fact that Montana hosts eleven (11) national forests totaling seventeen (17) million acres with ample designated roadless areas.

Additionally, within Montana’s border are Glacier National Park, many scenic areas, wildlife and waterfowl preserves, state parks and tribal reservations.  I think that we have enough government land.  What we don’t have enough of is support for all manner of Forestry professionals for their practical and proven methods of managing forests.

Integral to accomplishing healthy forests is the attitude that, if at all possible, forest fires should be fought promptly and before they become uncontrollable.  This means fuel reduction, especially in the wild land urban interface (WUI.)   But getting any USFS management plan past serial litigations and certain judges is a major problem.  For the most part wilderness lands are managed by nature.

Let’s bolster the efforts of all Montana landowners to manage our forested lands with the highest priority focused on fuel reduction and prompt fire suppression.  Professional, practical and common sense forestry will assist nature in providing a healthy environment for all living species.
