A fire destroyed a chunk of Donnelly's business district and left several people homeless on Nov. 2, 1916. The Morris Sun and Morris Tribune had news stories of the fire but scant coverage in the weeks that followed. Headlines instead were dominated by the election, auto and wagon crashes, Christmas gathering and other news. As I paged through those old bound books of 1916 editions of the Sun and Tribune I couldn't help but think of how a fire of that magnitude would play in the news today.
I'm writing in response to Troy Goodnough's senseless matter letters to the editor in the last two issues of the Sun Tribune. On and on about the sky is falling due to the election of Donald Trump as president. Typical liberal, double standard mindset. Liberal Democrats are always emphasizing tolerance, cooperation, understanding, etc. Now you have to practice what you preach. Be tolerant and open-minded enough to give Trump a chance. He might actually be good for America.

When the Stevens County Sheriff's Office responds to an emergency, welfare check or similar request, they don't always know a resident's emergency contact. Stevens County Sheriff Jason Dingman and Stevens County Commissioner Jeanne Ennen said it would be helpful for the county's 911 dispatch system to have an emergency contact for as many county residents as possible. Dingman said the request is for residents to voluntarily submit an emergency contact. The contact information would only be used if needed, he said.
