A letter from the Editors regarding Daines. Wow!


Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines has been about as vocal as any senator in his disdain for Democrats’ efforts to impeach President Trump. He has posted a video calling the effort an “obsession” and an “unprecedented impeachment sham.” He has spoken openly on cable television in defense of the president.

And that’s his prerogative. No matter how vehemently you may disagree with a U.S. senator, good luck trying to silence him or her.

But things changed for Daines on Thursday, when and other senators took an oath swearing that in the upcoming impeachment trial: “I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God.”

I received a letter from americans for posperity today (they don't deserve caps)

And I am writing all over it to send it back. Without my name and the barcode because they cannot be trusted.

Gah! These people have nerve but no spine.

End of rant.

I think at the next debate that ALL candidates be asked a yes or no question

Will you work with republicans? Every single one and that they get pushed for a yes or no answer.

Looking for answers about creek/runoff erosion control.

I will do my best to try and describe this creek before I ask my question.

It is a mountain creek so it has lots going into it and a lot of push at the bottom. After it comes screaming down the mountain it is at about a 35 degree angle for about 1/4 mile or so and then nature decided that the gradual grade wasn't enough for that last couple of feet and it made a waterfall to get there quicker. It hollowed out a hole about 20 feet wide and about 10 feet deep with a serious bank undercutting. Every rock and boulder up the mountain came with the creek and were deposited right after this hole it made and beyond. The boulders and brush it collected were carried and dumped for several hundred feet. It claimed a lot of land and dumped 3+ feet of sediment. We want to try and reclaim the land and put the creek back on the right path vs the path of least resistance.

My question is this... when working on restoration of this creek … where in the world do I start? At the waterfall and work my way downstream or downstream and clear my way up?

Unfortunately, the property line is a couple feet before the waterfall so working upstream is probably not possible. Did I mention mounds (2 to 3' high) and MOUNDS (5' and higher) of boulders deposited everywhere?

If anyone can understand what I am getting at... you are doing good!
