dropped the ball on that one. I guess that is why Montana government is sobad they sit around and do nothing and then say oh we could have prevented this if we would do somthing other than collect our pay. freeloaders
When the sheepherders, and 'cowboys, have their feet perched up, while they watch t.v./video?, ...'what do you expect?
If you empathize with these grizzlies' inability to forage without coming in contact with humans or "our" food supplies and bird feeders--then please help the land trusts in the U.S. West to connect wildlife corridors in the five ecological areas where grizzlies are still holding on. All wildlife needs the ability to travel safely from one foraging area to another, including the birds using those feeders. Where grizzlies can travel safely in the west, so can all other wildlife. For more information on grizzly habitat issues, see "vital ground.org" and read about the Grizzly Predicament. Grizzlies need your help--and understanding. They would prefer to avoid us crazy humans.
grizzly meat is delicious right next to the potatoes and corn on the cob.
seems like a really nice place to AVOID! I hear the local po-po will pull you over for going 1 mph over the speed limit...and I have heard this from MORE than 5 people who live around this town. PLEASE stay away from Darby, they will add YOUR hard earned money to their income. real nice place
How much money do you make that doesn't come from taxpayers
You are a self serving idiot
Stop investing in political financial investment firms!
Why go to court in Darby, usually they just shoot you, dont they Larry? Check out "Chee Burnsides" the actor judge distributing "Frontier Justice" in good ol Darby. This place is one very sick Joke. Oh by the way, when did Larry Rose lose the Marshal Status and become Police Chief? Is he appointed, elected, or just the reformed town drunk being kept off the streets? This place would be a viral "reality show" or Soap. A "Reno 911" on the Root.
They should be above board and disclose every single donor and how much they gave, in full without holding anything back. Groups like this that are scared to disclose their donors and their donations are NOT trustworthy has are thise hidden donors. When people want to influence my vote i have the right to know who is paying their bills and giving money. The one thing i hate most is people hiding behind laws so no one knows what they are doing and why.It is better to be totally truthful and honest instead of being a chicken and hiding behind laws that prevent donors and their donations from being disclosed.
well certainly the dimwits back gays...wouldn't be a surprise to find out every democrat is gay.
Is anyone else weary of the "everyman" depiction of David Strohmaier? I don't give a good gosh darn, Ms. Mayrer (or Ms. Szpaller of the Missoulian) what this man drinks; what is important is what he thinks. Essentially he thinks a lot of everyone and wants everyone happy, married if they want to be, shopping local and embracing ordinances that make stewardship something near the heart. I happen to agree. But does our man-on-the-bike-trail think deeply? Analyze critically and in detail before voting? Sadly no, methinks. He is a hand-in-pocket voter with the imperious Mayor and entertained absolutely no specific use for the redevelopment money other than the bailout of the seven baseball investors and the behind-the-scenes MFCU. Here's a toast to a man everyone likes to like...but few felt suited to legislative representation.
Meanwhile, the Independent eschewed coverage on the felling of hundreds of Norway Maple trees in Missoula, choosing instead to quote the very agency clear-cutting those trees rather than seek-out those who fear the depletion of the green-canopy that produces the oxygen we enjoy. Oh, but wait....they do cover councilman Jaffre's plan to replace trees. So, let's see: That's like covering the attempts to find homes for Iraq War orphans but never addressing the war itself. Safe. Secure. No one in City Hall or in an advertising capacity is offended. Go figure; then follow the money.
As the Swan View Coalition pointed out elsewhere, the Forest Service in Oregon seems to have no problem collecting western larch cones through the use of a crane to easily and safely pick larch cones, while letting the big, old larch trees live to see another day…or another century or two. Heck, the Forest Service even has a nice little slideshow showing larch cone collection on Oregon’s Ochoco National Forest. One has to wonder why the Flathead National Forest can't use this same method.
Slideshow available at this link:
A year ago Donna Gaukler--Director of Parks and Recreation--was unable to identify a Norway Maple tree (even though she had authorized the conservation lands manager for the city to cut as many of them as he deemed necessary.) She also could not write a paragraph on the connection of fast-growing trees, photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and oxygen for Missoula's citizens. That she would in this piece cite statistics and monetary needs for the reforestation of Missoula is absurd and, to one who challenged her to grow beyond press releases and hockey affiliations, personally insulting. Would that Mr. Jaffe and the Independent could have attended (as the former was invited to do) a Parks and Recreation meeting wherein a pro-individual notification policy re: tree removals was absolutely gutted by an angry and embarrassed (read "unprepared) lawyer on the board. Ms. Gaukler sat, chin to chest. Conservation Lands Manager (who, ironically wrote the proposed plan) sat...chin on chest. Reporter Jessica Mayrer was given this information over a year ago and merely, as she does again here, returns to her computer and splices city-employee quotes with filler. All should be embarrassed.
Addressing one of Missoula's main issues "Rape capital of the USA!" This is a great starting point. Until all involved for their part in this cover up are dismissed and replaced at the UM and City of Missouila this matter and the after effects being felt will not subside and go away. Public, it's your choice, waller in the slop or wake up and walk upon the green grasses. Missoula was poised to be a tourist hot spot this year or until...and these men have only made the situation worse. If these men truly loved this community and the people within the community they would proceed with stepping down from a job not well done at all and let the UM and community of Missoula heal from this embarrassing moment in history. Their departure will also be a win win situation for the local economy...and show the rest of the Nation Missoula truly does care.
Well certainly...you got your little piece and don't want anybody else to have one....
I have two ride/pack mules and two ATVs... I'll go wherever I well please using whichever I need
People need to pull their heads out of their a's and realize that the Government will spend our tax dollars how THEY want! Your opinion does not matter! You were not asked before this was done. At least we get to pay a bunch of grizzly loving hippies money to spend more time in the woods Yippy!
The project yes may be costly but maybe people should actually look into the funding because there is private funding as well. The information gathered will be helpful/beneficial.
Hey, glad to see the last of you! Montana was not founded on people who live life stoned. What a cause to give your "money and freedom" to.
