I am disappointed in the Mayor, City Council and Ann Turner, as editor of the Gillette News Record. Shay Lundvall is an individual of impeccable moral character. Can he make a mistake in judgment? The answer is a simple “yes.”
Rural hospitals in financial trouble should concern everyone. Even our beautiful hospital here in Gillette and our beautiful long-term care facility Legacy Living Center are at the heart of this issue. This is not just affecting someone else somewhere else it will affect every person living …
“In the U.S., the doctrine of Qualified Immunity grants govt. officials performing discretionary functions immunity from civil suits, UNLESS, the plaintiff shows that the official violated ‘clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known.’…
An election year is upon us and in Campbell County, we have choices to make in nearly each of our local elections. I applaud each person who has put their name on the ballot for consideration. It is a huge commitment of energy, personal, family, and business time, as well as personal finance…
As we look forward to a “saved” Fourth of July amidst some significant local turmoil, I salute Ann Turner Kennedy for her worth-every-word June 20 editorial. She tactfully reminds us that tact matters, that the First Amendment, like the Second, must be interpreted responsibly.
According to an article in the Sept. 15, 2016, edition of the Gillette News Record, the Gillette City Council’s original proposal for non-discrimination was created specifically to “affirms its personnel policies protect employees and potential employers from discrimination based on sexual o…
Election season is upon us. Now is the time for platitude spouting purveyors of political putrescence to parade publicly. You will hear them all. No new taxes! Keep our guns! I’m for state’s rights!
Given the Earth-shaking events of the week, and indeed the last months, it may seem somewhat trivial of me to check back in on the opinion page after some months and throw my sweat-stained hat into the arena of raising chickens in the city limits, but now that I only have three payments left…
This is not just directed at those involved in the recent incident in Minneapolis regarding Mr. George Floyd’s death. This is not just for the despicable incident which lead to Mr. Ahmuad Arbery’s death in Georgia. It is for everyone who lives in the greatest country on the face of this planet!
I am very adamantly pro-life and don’t think there is ever a reason for abortion. That being said, I took it upon myself to reach out to someone at Gillette Reproductive Health and subsequently visited them at their building. This is what I found.
Kudos to DG Reardon! It is so appauling that some of the commissioners, who are supposed to represent the people of Campbell County, are letting their personal beliefs dictate how they vote.
I would like to give a big shout-out to all the various groups and individuals, who, under a very questionable and unique set of circumstances came and lent a helping hand to make the Memorial Day series of events come together.
This letter concerns all our elected officials, but particularly our county sheriff, and their choice to pander to this attack on our civil Liberties.
When I write a letter to the News Record, it is to compliment Gillette or a group in some way. Gillette has so many good things to offer and good caring people that live here I love sharing that.
If you’ve lived in Campbell County for any length of time, you likely have seen #GilletteStrong proudly displayed in shop windows, social media posts, bumper stickers, and everywhere in between.
The nice ladies from Gillette Reproductive Health replied on April 28 to a News Record article of April 23. The article concerned cuts by our Campbell County Commissioners to local agencies and focused on Gillette Reproductive Health, and concern about abortion referrals.
We as citizens pay our taxes. These taxes pay for our schools, teachers’ salaries, law enforcement, government officials’ salaries, city employees’ salaries, county employees’ salaries, road repairs, etc.
We were very disappointed to read in your article that two commissioners were voting against providing any funding to Gillette Reproductive Health from the 1% taxes, since they erroneously believe that they refer patients for abortions.
I would like to thank Campbell County Commissioners for serving our county during this unprecedented time and I can only imagine the difficult decisions that you are making and will continue to make in the upcoming year.
In response to the Thursday, April 23 article, “Gillette Reproductive Health could see county funding cut to $0,” we would like to provide some clarification.
After reading several articles in various newspapers about starting up after this COVID–19 pandemic shutdown, I believe that with the limitations of people that have allergies and cough or sneeze a lot, or have a cold and cough a lot that they be required to wear masks to prevent the spread …
I was very excited to see the new building being built with containers on Second Street! I took pictures and will continue to do so as the building takes shape.
I was heartened to see city administrator Patrick Davidson’s letter in the Friday paper outlining the pandemic plan that the city put in place 10 years ago in preparation for the possibility of this kind of crisis. It is good to know that our local government is on top of this.
Thank you for the news. What in the world is being built with the storage containers on Second Street? If any tourists ever drive through town, they will surely post it all over the internet. We’ll be the laughing stock, again.
I did not realize when I was younger that my hero, Charles Schultz, was a modern day fortune teller. How could he know that we would be visited by the Great Orange Pumpkin? That he would rise out of the pumpkin patch and roam about our great country and bestow gifts and goodies on all the tr…
