The Lady Pioneers will take on Rocky Mountain College JV tonight at 5:30 p.m., and Bismarck State tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind for the Lady...
  •   When we were in Havre earlier this season, my first reaction was to how small the Havre players were. It was almost shocking.  They did play hard and had us tied when the lightning started, but the Cowboys were definitely moving the ball better and looked like they were going to pull away in the second half. That didn’t happen,...

I have always believed in positive change and new ideas, whether a form of government, education or “life.” I also believe that a...
  •   Dear editor, My thoughts after re-reading Mayor Grenz's article several times: What a disappointment, Mayor Grenz. You have displayed a perfect example of the “Good Ole Boy” system. From my experience, this system does not display the interest of the Miles City citizens, but that of the trio consisting of You, Mayor Grenz,...
  •   Dear editor, After reading the mayor’s first opinion piece in the Miles City Star, I had decided to not answer back. When I picked up last night’s paper and saw his ad which made more allegations, he left me little choice but to respond. This last budget cycle the council was tasked with trying to fund a Flood Study in order to...
  •   Dear editor, I was upset to read the letter written by Mayor Grenz and appalled to see the paid ad in the Monday paper. I suppose it may be legal, however not very ethical. I would hope the taxpayers of Miles City would see the smoke screen the mayor is trying to put out there! Having worked for the city for over 38 years, most of them as...
