Re: “Turning over new leaves at Garden City Compost

What's almost as sad as how bad of a deal this was for taxpayers is how little the local press has covered it. I wrote about it in November on my site, pointing out that the city paid $3 million for this private business, and when they expect it to lose money.

Why will it lose money?

Simple - the city will eliminate the compost bagging portion of the business, as well as the 50-60% of revenues that created for the business.

Why is the city getting into this business anyways?

They can't even fix our roads.

Perhaps if they would have spent that $3 million on our roads that would not be the case, but they chose to buy a private business.

This at a time when your taxes have gone up 95% over the past 12 years.

Why did the City Council sign-off on this?

And why can't the city get it's ducks all in a row? November to April is 6 months. That's six months that they had to get this business up and going, but they can't even get a cash register?

I'll remind you that none of this is new.

When the city recently voted on the budget for the new $42 million parks complex they didn't even allocate enough money to run the place.

That's your city government in action, folks.

Sick of it? Me too. It's time for a change.…

I love Rob Quist's music, have for a long time. Politically, he sounds a lot like Amanda Curtis. He has to sing from the Democratic songbook, I doubt that will resonate with Montanans.

Re: “Investigation gives Elsie Arntzen's claims an 'F' — for 'False'

Fixed. My wife and I were told by the principal herself they have to as the answer as to why our child comes home with completed work from school that she cannot do at home when we homeschool quiz her ourselves.

We took our child put of public school because they were doing the work for our child.

Don't believe any investigation that would turn out a result that would prove negligence on behalf of the school system or even the court system because it would open the doors for truth. The lawsuits. Then criminal prosecutions. God on my knows how many kids would have to be left back and do grades over.

Do you people actually believe their lies?

Cover ups is all it is. Poor woman told the truth about a majority crooked liars and the result? Like they would actually admit anything?

We know the truth because we caught them ourselves.

Re: “O Dems, where art thou? Quist campaign still running under the national radar.

Did you know the Montana Democratic Party had $143,000 cash on hand at the beginning of March?

Well...why aren't they giving any of that to Quist?

Here's another one - the Montana Democratic Party transferred $25,000 to the DNC in February, just weeks before they knew they'd be conducting a special election campaign.

Why'd they do that?

Why are we giving money to the DNC and what is it being used for?

Am I the only one that feels that money should be left in Montana for Montana politicians to use?

Re: “Sometimes environmentalism starts with a doggie baggie

Thank you for writing this article, Lucia. The self-entitlement of so many dog owners is appalling.

Elsie Arntzen is more interested in seeing her name in lights than she is making sure that the students of this State receive the best possible education... enough of the hyperbole and get on with being a good steward of OPI. No more nonsense!

Re: “No good answers

Family Court lies by saying they're a court of equity and not a court of law. Supreme court says otherwise.
