Guess my comment about the state's voluntary program on forestry Best Management Practices didn't generate any replies... Folks this is done with private landowners, loggers included to make sure logging jobs are done properly in lieu of state regulations. You need to support this. All these folks care a lot about doing it the right way. They even get upset when a culvert in not installed properly. The forestry department on Sprugin can link you up if you care.
I'd forgotten the access law change in 1991. Before that the lease holder controlled all access. Spending as much time as I have mapping soils in many parts of Montana I do have to say the state does a much better job of managing the grazing levels than BLM. Most Bureau of Livestock and Mining public land I saw was well overgrazed. Most state lands I was on wasn't. And most state forested lands I've been on have been fairly well managed as far as logging and grazing. I was not a state employee. I also helped the state's BMP (voluntary Best Management Practices) forestry team made up of landowners, loggers, foresters, and hydrologists that reviewed on-site logging jobs. They all were very picky about even little details, the loggers included. It's a great program that works in place of state laws and regulations.
Just another classic case of "MONEY TALKS, PEOPLE WALK"...even here in Montana. What would the state do if we all refused to pay the $2? NOTHING! They make far more leasing the land to PRIVATE entities. But yet, WE are still paying for the right to access the land!.
Possible solutions to the corner-crossing problem:
1. ask the landowner or landowners for an easement for a 4-foot wide public footpath across the corner.
2. expropriate the nine square feet needed to establish the 4-foot wide public footpath.
3. require the landowner(s) to provide access as a condition for leasing the public land.
I don't understand Bobby Smith's remark that "Montanans pay taxes on that land".
Dr Ramsey would have left it to die
Seems like someone, somewhere should care a little more
about what happened here. Hello district ranger supervisor,

If the Republicans stick to their guns on this matter and after all is said and done do you have any idea how many of them would land up in prison? More than one or two...and yes, back in 1777, Thomas Jefferson helped pen a criminal code for the Commonwealth of Virginia, but did you know the very paper he penned on was made of Hemp? Jefferson, Washington, Franklin all grew Hemp and Franklin owned one of Americas first Hemp producing paper mills. Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper and the United States Constitution was also penned on Hemp, so why are they not wanting to call on government to have these illegal documents destroyed? Then these's the thorny sexual assault issue and did I not read in the Missoulian that the Feds are investigating not 80 but 518 unresolved rape case in Missoula County over the past 4 yrs, Ouch! What's really going on in the Republican camp beside stone walling? The Republicans have all the answers, yet, are unwilling to share their rich wealth of knowledge with the rest of us thus letting the country fall off into the abyss i.e. you and your family losing everything for their own personal glory and satisfaction and then blaming it all on the President. When you find yourself and your family out on the street without a home or job just remember it was the Republicans who have the answers and did nothing to improve your quality of life except show you the street...

He sounds like a spoiled rich kid. Grow up Cregg, do something important with your life.
and seriously why on earth would you trust some organization with your money personally I think the REAL CHANGE jars help people to discriminate against the homeless you can walk by them and choose not to acknowledge their existence and put some money in a jar and that means you have done your part its a bunch of bullshit if your afraid of what they plan to use the money for then why don't you buy them a sandwich or something or ask them if they have good gear like a tent or sleeping bag because anyone who has been homeless will tell you gear is something they are always in need of you get your shit stolen and the poverello is out of blankets which happens more than people think I know this from personal experience so please stop being cowards people and spare some change or buy a homeless person a sleeping bag is it that hard?
I totally disagree with the slogan real change not spare change I use to be homeless and i'm the girl who you talked to in this article and you also spoke with my man. I'm all about encouraging people to donate to the Poverello center and other homeless outreach teams but to tell someone to never give out spare change is wrong on so many levels we need a less offensive slogan it really hurts a lot of people's feelings
For all you haters who said we are just a bunch of drunk idiots and the baby inside my stomach when I was homeless had no chance at life well you were wrong our son is now three months old and doing great and "Hobo" aka Kevin has a job so before you pass judgement on us try to help us you know spare some change for those in need and quit listening to the BID the Poverello Center can't help everyone who is homeless or in poverty
YOU SAY REAL CHANGE NOT SPARE CHANGE...... I SAY ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE WHICH ONE DOES THE BIBLE AGREE WITH?
Please no more pat"the butte bastard" williams.
Do not put YOUR trust in nobles, Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs.(Psalms 146:3) The bible helped me to stop alcohol, drugs and smoking cigs.,...and it has giving me a sure hope for the future,...they use to call (and they still do) Jehovah witnesse a cult but they are the only people spreading the truth,.....the real truth about the wickedness going on in the world,.... And who is behind all the woe's of our planet....earth.
So next time YOU have a chance to talk to a Jehovah's witness,,,,ask them why this?, why that? And what you got to do to be part of something bigger then YOU.
I know this is late but I just found this article. If Maclay's original plans had been approved, would I still be able to hike, bushwhack ski, fish, hunt, and just experience Lolo Peak on my own after his ski runs and lifts were built? It's hard for me to believe that someone can use public property for their own benefit and profit, and limit public access to that property. Just a thought.
Being a game worden is not always an easy job. From my experience Dave Loewen is a consumate professional.
This is a a compelling and beautiful story. It reminded me of Maclean's writing. Tragically painful. How impotent we feel when we cannot help the ones we love.
I rarely read an Indy feature in one sitting because (a) I'm perpetually pulled in several directions, (b) most features are segmented in a fashion to facilitate interrupted reading, and (c) though usually interested in the subject, I'm seldom drawn in as deeply as when I'm reading a novel. I read this feature in one sitting. Beautiful in it's structure, articulation, and reflection. Jamie created an homage to Maclean that adds his own unique voice. Love, pain, and beauty weave through all of our lives. Well done, Jamie!
A beautiful story, well written and full of deep insight and emotion. You are wise beyond your years.
