Wondering who Kris Halterman is? I am 3rd generation, Whatcom County resident, wife, mother, daughter, sister, business owner, citizen journalist, who values her time with family, friends and hard work. I believe that if we promote strong ties to individual liberty and self reliance "we" can all travel "the road to liberty." "Two roads diverged in the woods...and I chose to travel the road less traveled and that has made all the difference." ~ Robert Frost

I am a 4th generation immigrant and manage the family farm in Montana. My families immigrated from Norway and Russia (Volga-Germans). Our families immigration stories are still alive and we have become a part of the American Dream. From my Norwegian great grandfather who walked a band of sheep from Bozeman to Winnett to homestead and my German great grandmother whose first home in Billings as a migrant worker was a boxcar we trace the footsteps of those who came before us. We have succeeded in sending our college educated 5 generation across this great country from the East to the West Coasts to work and pursue their American dreams. . I am grateful for the founders who envisioned this country my families came to. It has been our shining city on the hill.
