On the horizon

Ciara Wolfe is not shy in board meetings, in her career, or in life. She has never allowed herself that luxury. The way she sees it, everyone has a responsibility to live up to their full potential. People have an obligation to use their talents to better the world, to better themselves and to fully live.

Faith and gardening

Debbie Rogers delights in the natural world. Everyday she is out in it – horseback riding, hiking, and then digging around in the dirt of her organic garden. The chickens cluck and the rooster struts, all pecking at the dirt, ridding the garden of invaders. Raspberry bushes provide sustenance and shade on hot days.

The luxury of just stopping by a friend’s house has eluded Chaplain Warren Hiebert for the last 30 years. People often tell him, “I like you, Warren, but I don’t ever want to see you come to my door.” PHOTO BY JANA BOUNDS

Unshakable faith

Warren Hiebert admits with a wry smile that there are days when he buttons-up his collared shirt and wonders to himself, “Is this the day I am going to die?” He also notes that this is a pretty morbid thought.

Having a baby during a pandemic

It takes some planning and serious effort to bring a miracle baby into the world during a pandemic. For Brooke and Justa Adams, the process of creating their biological child consisted of in vitro fertilization. Of nine eggs, only one survived without Justa’s genetic blood clotting disorder, called Von Willebrand Disease Type IIB.

“The rest of the world looks to America as the beacon of hope for freedom and opportunity. We Americans take that for granted,” Henry Kriegel (center blue suite) said during an Americans for Prosperity interview. PHOTO BY JANA BOUNDS

Fighting for liberty

With microphone in hand, Henry Kriegel addressed the people gathered at the impromptu town hall held after the postponed Gallatin City-County board of health meeting. He told them that real change does not come from attending one gathering. Real change comes from the legislature.

An old soul

Tanner Spree’s wish for the world is that everyone could be just a little more accepting of differences in each other and of differences in opinion. Raised entirely by women, he was taught to be respectful.

The human behind the uniform

The American flag – a symbol of what George Washington deemed the “great experiment” can exemplify myriad things to many people. When Sergeant Brandon Kelly with the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office looks at the flag, he reflects on the five generations of his family that have fought for this country in the U.S. military.
