Three Red Banners (Chinese: 三面红旗) was an ideological slogan in the late 1950s which called on the Chinese people to build a socialist state.

On June 5th 2020 Broadwater County Commissioner Laura Obert was formally charged with felony theft and misdemeanor official misconduct. In the arraignment proceeding, both sides of the case had prearranged a process agreement. In that agreement Special Prosecutor Marty Lambert that was appointed by Montana Attorney General Tim Fox to represent the citizens o Broadwater County fully agreed without conditions or objections.
The judge in the matter Judge Menehan in the First Judicial District of Montana stated that he would look forward to getting the agreement in writing as soon as available. The defense attorneys agreed to get that document to the court.
On July 24th 2020 the legal maneuvering surfaced the agreement and was finally filed in court. At the time of this writing, we are not sure if Judge Menehan signed the agreement.
Citizens in Broadwater County are calling for action in the court to represent the people. Many are making a claim that in most all other cases providing a free pass to the average citizen is rarely if ever considered. In this case Commissioner Obert is not on administrative leave with or without pay.
Commissioner Folkvord who was serving as vice chairman of the commission when the charges were filed continues to decline comment on the matter claiming it is strictly a legal matter not under the jurisdiction of the Commission. Past Commission Chairman Mike Delger also remains silent on the matter.
County Attorney Cory Swanson has recused himself from the case due to the statutory conflict of interest law. When asked for information on the case all questions get referred to Special Prosecutor Marty Lambert who declines to comment on the case.
Will the citizens of Broadwater County see justice? That is the question as this case moves forward. Commissioner Obert’s legal team before submitting the stipulation agreement is moving forward with a motion for dismissal and has moved to reschedule the day of trial.
The case has brought forward multiple scenarios including legal action against the county for violating the law regarding public information. Broadwater Reporter filed lawsuit against the County naming County Sheriff Wynn Meehan for violating Montana law providing for the release of public information. The refusal to release the booking photo is a direct violation of Montana law.

The Helena City Commission moved forward on their new fiscal year budget. In the process, the safety of children in the schools were placed on the chopping block. Commissioner O’Loughlin brought forward an amendment to the fiscal year budget to hold back $300,000.00 from the Helena Police Department.
The amendment will take away funds of 4 vacant positions in the police department and decide whether to do away school resource officers.
If the full commission moves this to a final vote by August 1st, Helena schools will be without police officers tasked with protecting your children.
The commission will hold a public discussion on the amendment and make a final decision on this proposed action July 9th 2020. Will the Citizens have a voice at this meeting?
Dennison Rivera provided the commissioners a scolding last night at the meeting regarding public participation. He is concerned that the citizens of Helena will continue to be ignored for political bandwagon issues instead of worrying about what is best for Helena Residents.
Mr. Dennison went on and stated “I wish it was a genuine discussion. But I get the impression the decision is already predetermined again, based on the fact they continue to talk about reallocating funds before having a public conversation.”
The Helena School District officials and the Helena Police Department now will be holding their breath before school opens to deal with the final decision in public schools and community safety.
