  •   Dear editor,    Erin's Hope Project is a non-profit organization started in March of 2011, in memory of our daughter, Erin. She passed away in March 2010, due to a brain tumor. The love and support we received was amazing, and we always knew that we wanted to make a difference in someone else's life traveling the...
  •   Dear editor, This letter concerns the proposed zoning change south of Miles City on Highway 59. There are many reasons why I'm adamantly opposed to a change in zoning from agricultural to commercial, but I'll address one in particular. The owner of Diamond J Construction contends that his truck shop would increase the property...
  •   Dear editor, Today Miles City is at a threshold. Do we have development, and if so, where is it and what is it going to look like? Different groups have very different ideas.

He spent several days last week conducting classes at the station.  On Saturday Prete...

Organizations, individuals and families are invited to join in the scheduled activities and spend time making improvements in their own backyards this spring. The event is organized by Keep Miles City Beautiful and the Miles City Area Chamber of Commerce. It is part of the...
