Word of the Week


Pronunciation: kak-or-rhaph-io-pho-bia

Part of Speech: Noun

Meaning: the fear of failure.

Has this become the Kings forest?

In reference to the road closures by the forest service.  It is management or control? A tank trap or gate is so close to the approach you cant park one vehicle much less a horse trailer. If a gate or tank trap is placed any where but the beginning of a road you cant walk by the gate. Is it possible to make these road closures user friendly without the forest service leaving ugly notes on the gate? From the outside looking in the forest service management  is not very people friendly, as I drive around I see other areas marked for tank traps, has this become the kings forest?

Thank you cast and crew of “The Wizard of OZ”

Dear editor, it never ceases to amaze me of how much talent there is in Libby, MT. I’m speaking about the talent musical production put on by the Kootenai Karacters, “The Wizard of OZ” this past week. From Dorthey, The Tin Man, The Scarecrow, The Lion, and the good and bad witches To the youngest and smallest and cutest Munchkins etc. It was delightful. I liked it so much I went twice! The orchestra under the direction of Lorain Braun was fantastic, and the stage crew did an incredible job on props, lighting, sound effects etc. and I can’t leave out Tallulah Bankhead – Toto who played the part perfectly. I hope everyone who attended enjoyed it as much as I did and I hope the Kootenai Karacters keep entertaining us with wonderful shows in the years to come. I just want all the cast and crew to know, they are appreciated.
