• Support the Red Cross

    Often during the holidays, one stops and looks back over the past year. For  

    me, it’s about reflecting on what it truly means to be there for others in  

    need. Seeing how much people throughout the country went through this year  

    and seeing how the American Red Cross was there, time and time again, makes  

    me proud to say that I support our local Red Cross.


    The torrential floods in 2015 soaked us. In 2016, it was Hurricane  

  • Enjoyed "Christmas in Chester"

    To the Editor:


    Christmas in Chester was such an amazing event for young and old alike. I don't know who had more fun, my granddaughter or me. I have always said that it is the people of Chester who make it such a special place. Many thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers who made this such a magical event, again. From Friday night Christmas music with the children, Santa Claus, tree lighting and ice skating. And the food trucks were such a great addition. Hamburger with French fries, because I could. Well, my princess had to eat!

  • Chronic pain dinner

    To the Editor:

    A special thanks to Dr. James Stauffer and the participants who attended the Chronic Pain Awareness Dinner that was held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at the Market Building, 116 Columbia St.

    Dr. Stauffer spoke on the lack of minerals, such as unrefined salt, magnesium and iodine, that can be the cause of our bodies' pain due to the craving of these minerals and how lower back pain is caused by the deterioration of disks and injury. It has been proven that with proper stretching and alignment you don't always have to have surgery.

    To the Editor:

    As the Chester Healthcare Foundation is a private, tax-exempt (501-c-4) foundation approved by the Internal Revenue Service, it operates primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community it serves, and it does not benefit private groups of citizens.

  • Dog death should be wake-up call

    It's hot outside—so hot that spending too much time in the sun is not just uncomfortable but also potentially deadly, as was evidently the case for a chained Great Falls pit bull that was left to bake in the heat with no access to shade or water. A concerned neighbor called the police to report the dog's suffering, but by then, it was too late – the dog had apparently strangled to death on his tether in a desperate attempt to reach shade. His owner has been charged with cruelty. 


  • Kudos to officers
