  • Russell and Brenda Dotson of Huntley, formerly of Colstrip, have announed the engagement of their daughter, Miranda Dotson of Cypress, Texas, formerly of Colstrip, to Braden Harris of Cypress, formerly of Miles City.  Harris is the son of David and Colette Harris of Miles City. They are planning a June 21 wedding in Bozeman.
  •   Dear editor, I am writing in support of Diamond J Construction gaining the appropriate commercial zoning south of town. There is no reason why a company with roots in Miles City should not be able to expand. It is a legitimate misunderstanding that such property would not need commercial zoning, due to its placement out of city limits....
  •   Dear editor, I am writing this letter in regards to all of the hypocritical citizens that are fighting against the rezoning of the Diamond J Construction property south of town.  I would first like to start with Miss Todoroff. I can’t quite figure out her complaint with the project, because she currently has her property listed...
  •   Dear editor,    Erin's Hope Project is a non-profit organization started in March of 2011, in memory of our daughter, Erin. She passed away in March 2010, due to a brain tumor. The love and support we received was amazing, and we always knew that we wanted to make a difference in someone else's life traveling the...

There are many reasons why I'm adamantly opposed to a change in zoning from agricultural to commercial, but I'll address one in particular. The owner of Diamond J Construction contends that his truck shop would increase the property...
  •   Dear editor, Today Miles City is at a threshold. Do we have development, and if so, where is it and what is it going to look like? Different groups have very different ideas. The agriculture segment, the backbone of our economy for the past 150 years, does not want to see commercial development south of Miles City. The “Fast Buck...
  •   Dear editor, I find it very hypocritical that Miles City has some objections to rezoning property just south of town for a construction business. It seems they are worried about what it will look like and, if it got to be an eyesore, what that would do to the first impression one gets from Miles City.  How about enforcing the...
  •   Dear editor, Do elections alone serve as the driving force in what can be accomplished in Washington these days? Resource-wealthy Montana deserves more than lip service when it comes to creating jobs in our state. Truth is, it seems like this next election is getting in the way. President Obama just delayed the Keystone XL pipeline yet...
  •   Miles City Fire & Rescue is taking advantage of some advanced training, but luckily, they don’t have to go far to get it. Local firefighter Jerry Prete is also an instructor through the Montana State University Fire Services Training School. He spent several days last week conducting classes at the station.  On Saturday Prete...
