Thank you local businesses
I would like to give a special thanks to Laurel Ace Hardware and Home Depot for donating paint to spruce up all the pieces in the Nativity scene.
Have a blessed Christmas.

Thank you for clearing
I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to the Laurel city employees that worked so long and hard to get our streets plowed. There was an incredible amount of snow in a short amount of time and you all did a great job plowing. You are all AWESOME!
This was the best Thanksgiving day ever in my life, because I had more to be thankful for.
Hallelujah, what a wonderful great victory of true Americans over the hostile elites that have ruled this great nation for decades.
Trump accomplished a hostile takeover of the Republican Party and won without the support of the of the GOP elite.
The Board of Oil and Gas Conservation is the regulatory body that issues permits to drill oil and gas wells in Montana. Their job is to ensure that companies play by the rules when they drill in our state, and “prevent oil and gas operations from harming nearby land or underground resources” (from the BOGC website). This is critical, since many of the companies that come before them are based out-of-state. You want to drill for Montana’s resources? You treat Montana’s land, water, and people right.
Why is this [mobile home development] coming up again? It seems to me that the liberal planning board has a hard time listening to the public that they invite to give their views. I would suggest to the board not to invite the public, after all they really aren’t listening to them anyway. Maybe the board has a short memory.
I’ll bet the public, that they seem to ignore, will have a better memory when they vote next time.
I live on our family ranch 12 miles south of Big Timber on the Boulder River. In 2008, the state of Montana leased the river bed, only 420 feet north of our home for oil and gas development. Under current law, we would not have received any notification of any development that was about to occur.
A federal judge in Texas granted a preliminary injunction to block the Department of Labor’s new overtime regulation. The U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas granted a nationwide preliminary injunction for multiple lawsuits brought by the State of Nevada and 20 other states, and a number of business organizations led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This is a major win for the business community, especially in Montana.
The General Election of 2016 is over except for the Electoral College vote. If you did not vote, you have no right to complain.
If you did vote, your civic duty is not completed. You must be vigilant, keep yourself informed, “hold their feet to the fire,” write, phone and e-mail our elected officials. Do not let them forget the people are the bosses and don’t discount your influence.
In my opinion, we don’t need term limits. They are the easy way out. We need voters who are informed who will use the ballot box to remove any elected official who does not represent them.
