113 packs of wolf with 7 or more wolf. The tribe did not count the packs with 2 or 3 wolf in Montana. Try over 1500 wolf in Montana for a minimum count. DOW does not count the wolf, hey raise money to fill their pockets from fools who fill them every month.
First off Montana has more than 625 wolves... Wolves are a disease ridden predator and need listed as such. This wouldn't be an issue if people that actually live in areas affected were listened to. To many lobbyist and Enviro groups with no clue have led people to believe these wolves are necessary to the environment when they aren't. Wolves cause more damage than is verified or reported. I have had wolves within 15 feet of my home, where I have children. If I can shoot one or more I will.
Does anyone have any idea what these individuals are put through in a boot camp? Even the most mentally stable would have a difficult time succeeding. They are pushed to their breaking point, humiliated, sleep deprived and pushed physically to the point of collapse. I have unfortunately had first hand experience with this and my son who had 5 mental health diagnoses and was sent to the Boot Camp at Deerlodge with no medications. He was motivated but had no chance of succeeding. He lasted one month before suffering a complete breakdown and ending up in prison. To the above comment.... Montana needs to find the finances to properly treat people with mental illness. Psychiatry is real medicine!!! and you most likely need the help of exactly that. "These type of people" speaks volumes. These people are human beings with an illness just like diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimers etc. They deserve treatment for their illnesses just like anyone else. This story is very disheartening and I hope what this mother has done to fight for her son will eventually others in his situation.
Great story, thank you so much! I think it's interesting to note after receiving some press recently regarding the fact that SOFA's address was directly across the street from Zinke's house in Whitefish, a change has been made!! Check out this link http://images.nictusa.com/pdf/892/13942281892/13942281892.pdf#navpanes=0 Effective today SOFA has "moved" just 5 miles from Scott Hommels address in Baltonspa, New York. Now how in the world is Zinke's "replacement", Gary Stubblefield, supposed to run this organization from his home in Missoula. Also, try and find ANY information on Battle Plan Strategies. There is none. It's only job seems to be to collect $ from SOFA
Would someone please explain the birds and the bees to these immature children ranting about wolves like 6 year olds. Regulated hunting has never in the history of the world caused any animal to go extinct. Take off the paranoid tin foil hat and join the adult world before you comment. Wolves are going to be managed based on science and experts now grow up and deal with it. P.S. Newsflash the earth is not flat either.

Clearly the history of both the Blackfeet and the buffalo bones are closely inter-related and both vastly predate the BIA. The Blackfeet Tribal Council operates under Treaty law, the supreme law of the land. It seems obvious that the BIA would be well advised to follow the suggestion of the Tribal Business Council , and meet with the Council to discuss where might be a better location for a new dormitory, if one is actually needed.
I believe in a everyone's right to choice and women keep yelling this to the roof tops but in most cases the woman did make a CHOICE and that was to have sex/ make love and as a result of her choice she and her partner got pregnancy. Now as a civilization we as a people decided that LIFE was not as valuable if you didn't have a voice therefore we allowed someone other then GOD to decide our fate whether we live or die as a unborn human. We forgot about the voice of that unborn human which we can now proof is alive insides it's mother's womb. How is it that we have advanced so far to only become so barbaric in our ways of deposing of things that we don't want anything to inconvenience for our life style choices. We have raised a multi generations to believe that my choice is so powerful that it gives me the right to kill. To discard like trash a human baby in the garbage or abortion a unborn human? WHY? One scenario would be called murder the other acceptable.
We are a national in need to get back to a value system that values life.
You quack like a racist white power idiot.
If you want to talk about PROFILING, last year Whitefish Police Department administration had there sergeant tell there officers not to charge people from Canada and Foreign Nationals with disorderly conduct which is a $185.00 fine. They were instructed to charge them with disturbing the peace a $500.00 fine.
Gavin Hood did the movie? Should have guessed it would thunk. I saw "Rendition" and it is the only movie to elevate "Super Troopers" from the dead bottom of my personal movie ranking. Whew! And I found "Ender's Game" the book, to establish something of an archetype in my mind.
A well-written review, incidentally.
Good for the MHP doing what the Border Patrol won't. Somebody needs to uphold the law when it comes to illegal Mexicans. This man was not put out any more than was required considering his insurance was not correct with the vehicle registration. It is a fair question asked by this officer. So get over it already. So you got a little inconvenience in your life, well guess what? I am sick and tired of paying for the free medical, rent and food stamps for every drop baby from some Mexican illegal. Try fitting in. Stop acting and speaking as if you just waded the Rio Grande. If you are a real American then you should be glad that someone is watching out for your interest as a taxpayer. If you look, act, and quack like a duck then chances are you could be mistaken for a duck.
Never read the book, which I think works in my favor because I thought this movie was great! Likely because 1. I love movies about kids doing grown up things. 2. Limited though I'm sure it is in the film compared to the novel, I enjoyed the experience of watching Ender navigate the world as a game of strategy and the moral choices he's faced with making.
CGI is bullshit, as many important critics have said, but if it ever had a purpose, surely it would be for interstellar warfare! Still, I agree that the CGI is not very good.
Overall, I'd say reading this review really added something to my life.
Big deal - climate change has been occurring naturally for millions of years, yet some simple minded people get upset when change occurs. The science shows that today's climate and global temperature are not unusual, unnatural, nor unprecedented. Alarmists were forecasting an imminent ice age due to cooling 1945 - 1977, and there's been no warming since 1995 - temperature has remained static.
The problem with alarmists is that they are extremely ignorant and possibly incapable of understanding some scientific concepts. For example, there is no correlation between atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and global temperatures - so therefore, how can anyone claim that co2 is driving global temperature? The amount of co2 is such that adding more has little effect, due to the physical properties of the co2 molecule.
The Blackfeet deserve everything they can possibly get for their community in this "war" with the BIA. No matter how much they ask for, it will never, in even the tiniest way, replace what has been taken from them.
This excellent article underscores the different world views of the players in this continuing controversy.
On the one hand, federal government agencies view this as land to be managed, based on physical objects found in and on the earth. They require proof and documented evidence to apply regulations regarding Native land claims. They have no avenue to include cultural evidence of land use that does not leave a physical record.
On the other hand, the Blackfeet perceive this land as a continuum, the place where they have lived, worshipped, hunted and played for centuries. The objects are only the signs that they are here. It is the land that is important, the land where their ancestors lived and are buried. Their connection to the land is through their ancestors graves.
Saying, "We have always lived here," does not necessarily mean: "This patch of dirt right here under my feet." "Here" is the earth in which the ancestors are buried. The relationship with that earth continues unbroken to the present. Though a particular group may have moved from place to place through historic time, they have always been "Here."
With all due respect, this is a pathetic mcarthy-istic guilt-by-association article. If you did any research whatsoever, or had even listened to our direct phone conversation, you would know that I've been working on pension reform throughout my entire legislative career, long before any of us ever heard of Koch's... I knew nothing about Pew's interest or influence, you never asked me about Pew, nor if my involvement was because of the Koch connection. You know full well based on the arguments I gave you, and based on the timing of my involvement in pension reform (well before AFP was ever on the scene) that my interest in pension reform has absolutely nothing to do with rich billionaires.... it has to do with plugging what was, at the time I became involved, a 3.5 Billion dollar hole in the state pension, and reforming the system so that some retirees could no longer game the system to further rob from the retirement of fellow state workers.
I'm disappointed that a fellow Montana hunter would call me under the pretext of an unbiased journalistic attempt to understand pension issues, yet clearly have a pre-conceived prejudiced agenda for his story.

The pension plan passed by the Legislature was a compromise. It needed to be fair to our state employees and limit the risk to the taxpayer. We kept the defined benefit plan but limited the GABA up or down depending on the rate of return our investments obtain. If the state employees are successful in court removing the inflation limits the compromise will need to be changed.
Senator Bruce Tutvedt
I have to say that the moment I saw the Arnold's picture my stomach started to churn. In my opinion the 401k plan has been one of the biggest scams ever to be exercised on the American working class. I hope Mr. Draine and his associates never return to Montana as it's clear they intend to dine and dash with our hard earned pension funds.
My question is WHY are these private entities so interested in re-making Montana pensions. What is their "dog in the fight?"
