Helping with history (11/24/15)
The Buena Vista County Historical Society is thankful for the support of Dana and staff at the Pilot-Tribune for our activities in 2015. Your coverage in print and pictures has helped us reach a larger readership for our fundraisers, our displays and programs. ...
Oil pipeline insurance deal not enough (11/24/15)
This is with respect to the Resolution recently passed by the Buena Vista County Drainage District. I commend the work of the County Board of Supervisors who sit as Trustees, as well as their attorney, Gary Armstrong, in doing what they can with a difficult situation...
Once more, 'Tom's donation' (11/24/15)
On November 14th I had the privilege of doing a memorial service for a fellow Christian servant, Tom Keller. Most of you know Tom from his 40 years of going door to door asking for donations for the Needy Children's Christmas Auction, except in Marcus because of a local family's willingness to help out...
'Hope' policy didn't work (11/24/15)

Bakken's ultimate target is Alberta's tar-sands oil, not North Dakota's "sweet" crude...
When is enough, enough? (11/05/15)
I am compelled to once again turn to the method of an editorial to express my disappointment in the management protocol with regards to the Buena Vista Memorial Cemetery... certainly lacking compassion for the bereaved. Our mom, Alyce Nielson, passed away in early June. ...
Bottled Up Emotions (11/05/15)
You previously ran an item called "Bottled Up Emotion." Some of your readers questioned whether the can and bottle bill should be done away with. Before the can and bottle bill was passed, I lived for a number of years in Boone, Iowa and participated in the annual city-wide clean-up in the spring...
