Today’s independent commentary deals with these issues:
- The Western Word Poll
- State Basketball Tournament
- Government/Ukraine Funding
- The Lord’s Prayer
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
This week’s poll question asks, “Which cable news channel do you watch the most?”
The results will be posted later this week.
STATE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT:
Bozeman has a problem. The Montana High School Association (MHSA) has a problem.
MTN News reported last week that the state basketball tournament is drawing crowds from across the state to Bozeman. But some parents fear they wouldn’t be able to come due to the high costs of hotels in Bozeman.
MTN looked at six hotel prices for Bozeman, Great Falls, and Billings, on Hotels.com and looked at a stay for a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children, for Friday through Sunday. Bozeman was the highest at an average of $352, Great Falls average was $176, and by far the cheapest was Billings at just under 140 dollars per night.
I’m sure some hotels in Bozeman could set aside a block of rooms at a lower price for high school families to use during tournaments. Maybe the MHSA could demand it – or take their tournament elsewhere.

Late Thursday night, the U.S. Senate passed a massive bill to fund the government and provide new Ukraine-related aid, sending the 2,741-page bill to President Biden’s desk. Senators voted 68-31 on the bill, which includes $1.5 trillion in government funding and $13.6 billion in aid tied to Ukraine. (The Hill)
U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) voted for the bill; U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) voted against the bill. (Source)
On March 9, the U.S. House passed the bill 260-171-1 with Representative Matt Rosendale (R-MT/AL) voting against the bill. (Source)
THE LORD’S PRAYER:
The following caught my attention the other day. It was posted by one of the more gullible (dumb) people I follow on Facebook…
After hearing Mark Zuckerberg saying that posting of the Lord’s Prayer goes against their policies, I’m asking all Christians to please follow my example and post the Lord’s Prayer.
Could it be… Satan?
That information about The Lord’s Prayer” is false. I wonder if the dimwits posting this garbage know that “God” has a Facebook page and has almost 3,000,000 followers? There are several “The Lord’s Prayer” pages, too.
Psst…I’ll even bet there are several churches with Facebook pages.
Some people just feel better if they feel like they are being persecuted…
