Since trust status lands are in federal care, they are exempt from taxes for one. Two, the Federal Government, namely Congress is the only governing body that has the authority to deal with tribes. It's in the Constitution Article One, Section 8 "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes". This authority has been vested in Congress by case law upheld by the Supreme Court. So my question "Gimmeabreak" is why would the tribe deal with state or local officials, when those local governments have zero jurisdiction in this issue.
As for the comment by jr2jr2000, what racist comments? This article contains the specific words and phrases" "The county cannot go into that sovereign nation to apprehend the drunken Indians," he said. "So the jails are full of Indians (sic) which cost us tax dollars. One jail in particular (Havre?) had a count of 58." Do you have that? Do you have SPECIFICS? Or is this another case of lashing out and claiming reverse discrimination because a racist got caught being a racist?
As for the water compact itself, perhaps a deeper understanding of sovereignty, treaty rights RETAINED, and state and local government interaction in a federal treaty is in order.
Hey Dan! This is indeed GREAT reportage! It is amazing what can be found out even if you are not the NSA!
There ARE alot of Natives in jail, and that would be because the legal system is about as corrupt as it gets. I used to sing in bars, and I can tell you that the majority of drunks I saw were WHITE. The WHITE culture introduced alcohol to the Natives, and there are at least as many WHITES driving drunk and getting into brawls as Natives, so WHY are the prisons being populated with Natives?
Just for the record, it's a 750 ml bottle. Which makes it just that much more awesome. Just sayin'!
Havre does have it's problems, so you have to be careful who you piss off, when you go out and hit the town. The trouble is some people just can't handle alcohol.
I think the difference between you and an Indian, Greg, is that if you get hammered and wander around downtown, nobody claims that all white people are drunks.
The future for wildlife looks bleak with climate change. Too bad there are still so many that do not agree with the 97% of climate scientists. There are now 10 record highs for each record low and winter is warming at 2-4x the rate of the other seasons. This is not a normal trend...I guess you believe whatever you need to rationalize your job in the fossil fuel industry.
Christmas Tea at The Old Flynn Ranch,Missoula Montana was one of the big highlights for our family. In the hustle and bustle of people working with all different schedule and being unable to get together, it was a great fortunate that we were able to book the tea table,with the majority of my daughters attending. What a great drive up to this beautiful old brick architectural home. Upon entering, it was like stepping back into Victorian times.The room was very cozy, with the heat from the old belly stove , the elegant tea service on the beautiful embroidered table cloths, the elaborate real Christmas tree resting peacefully in the beautiful bay window, ornate portraits of the original owners hanging elegantly over the piano,the pleasant conversations from people sitting at the other tables. It brought a flood of conversations between my daughters and I, mainly how much similar the home reminded me so much of the sandstone home I lived in Scotland.The Tea was simply delicious,along with wonderful decorated sandwiches,oeurduves and delightful desserts. The hostess were always making sure our tea pot was kept filled. The lady of the house Maureen was so kind to let us know some history of the place, n permitting us to see the elegant rooms upstairs. It was one of the best relaxing nights that my daughters and I had. And the cost just a mere $10. The best! A big "THANK YOU" to all the family for opening this ornate home to the public. We hope to be back next year.!
You didn't say so but I assume your heart also breaks for the newborn calves and fawns surrounded by the pack. Wolf pups gotta eat and you do know what that means.
Jamie Olson you are a disgusting filthy waste of human skin. I hope you break your leg out in the wilderness somewhere in one of your own leg traps and rot there. THEN you might have some empathy for the poor creatures you tortured. Pig.
KSPS is the PBS station for Spokane. Missoula has it's own PBS station right here - KUFM. And guess what you can watch it over the airwaves, via Dish Network and on Cable. So get on board and support your local PBS instead of supporting the larger market KSPS. It's like complaining that you can't watch CBS, NBC or ABC from Spokane.
Speaking of paternalistic - what is not paternalistic about the federal government (BIA) taking trust ownership of CSKT property?

I attended a Water Compact meeting at the Tribal Council Headquaters in Pablo a while back. I was appaled at the racist comments made by Tribal Members towards non-tribal members. Maybe you should do a story on that?? But I forgot, it only goes one way.
Spot on, Dan. Thank you for the chuckles, while spotlighting ignorance.
Mr. Strandberg, please read history. It is a history far older than your ancestors in this beautiful country we white people now call our home. Had you, and yours, been treated so dismally, you might think differently.
My ancestors -- all from Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Scotland and England -- came to this country after it was stolen from the people who had lived here for thousands of years. I bear no gulit for my ancestors; I simply acknowledge this fact of depredation.
Drunk Indians is a common perception in the state, and having several of them walking around downtown Missoula in the summer while they're drunk doesn't help.
These opinions are going to stay in place until the tribes of the state stop feeling sorry for themselves, stop blaming the white man, and start taking responsibility for their actions. Having your representatives drive drunk and then act arrogant certainly doesn't help.
Indians in this state have yet to prove to me that their anything but a burden on our resources and a sad-luck case that I'm frankly tired of hearing about. My life sucks too and I've got no money, but no one would give a damn if I was complaining. I'm white.
RE: Brats and Beer
My cousin Chuck Miesfeld is a 3rd generation sausage maker from Sheboygan, WI (home of the Bratwurst Hall of Fame). Miesfeld's brats have won 1st place at competitions around the country, and have even won the admiration of a certain Indy food columnist.
Here are Cousin Chuck's bratwurst grilling, and just as important, bratwurst beer-soaking tips.
Charcoal grilling is by far the best. We suggest using briquettes over hardwood charcoal. The hardwood charcoal burns to hot for bratwurst. Start your fire (briquettes) and let them burn down to a gray looking coal. Prior to this, you should soak the brats in COLD water for about 5- minutes. This makes the casing more pliable and will reduce breakage.
Put the Brats on the grate, turning them often. Do not allow fire or flare ups. Control this with a slight dowsing of water. A fire that is too hot will split the casing and you will lose all the vital juices in the brat. Brats only take about 7-8 minutes to get fully cooked. Over cooking them will reduce the flavor.
AFTER they are grilled, if you don’t serve them right away and you want to keep them warm, the best way is to mix up the brine to put them in. Use ¼ stick of butter, 2 cans of beer, and 1 large onion sliced. Put this on the stove and heat so all the ingredients melt together. Place the brats in this brine to keep them warm. This is only to keep them warm, so keep the heat LOW.
Too many times people think this is how you actually cook them. This defies the how to cook brats rules (at least in the brat capitol of the world... Sheboygan) If you follow these simple instructions, you will have successfully grilled the world’s greatest BRATWURST.
This article is so poorly written; it glorifies Carrie Jamrogowicz's prowess as a shooter and does almost nothing to indicate how frightening her behavior has been for the last nearly 10 years towards Stacy Lear. Carrie had no reason whatsoever to move to Missoula and did so only to systemically invade Stacy's life. She is practically to the point of wearing Stacy's skin, and yet the article and the comments below rather make light of this (and the insinuations that this is romance gone wrong show the thoughtlessness of the commenters rather clearly). If it wasn't for Stacy taking up shooting in the first place, Carrie never would have bothered to do so; her shooting hobby is just another attempt to become Stacy.
This article would be much better served if it mentioned how deeply frightening Carrie's involvement in every aspect of Stacy's life has been, how totally she has tried to become her, and the lengths she has gone to to try and do so.
This isn't romance gone wrong; it's a deeply disturbed woman who has been allowed to pursue someone else relentlessly and meticulously, and everyone sits here and makes jokes. I sincerely hope Carrie will face jail time or at least be forced to get psychiatric help; this is clearly the work of an obsessed, dangerous and limitless mind of a woman who has been enabled and allowed to do whatever she wants, no matter how disturbing her behavior. She is frightening, and she should be in jail.
Shall we blame it on a weather trend? Maybe we can call it climate change. Guess what? Dry hot summers happen just as much as wet cold ones. Do we really need to label normal trends with the unfounded Global Warming Crisis. I am over here in North Dakota robbing oil from the ground. It is -20 today and I could use some of this fairy tale globalist agenda warming. Too bad about the deer. Hot dry spells are regular weather cycles and have been for my 60 year lifetime. Insects happen, the variety of them differs each year according to what ever conditions prevail. I am not ignorant of real issues I just prefer to avoid the stupid ones.
Wolves probably slaughtered over 20,000 deer and left most to rot in Montana this last year. Now that's a tragedy for hunters and just a bit more of an issue. Chances are the same number or variety of insects will not hatch out in the spring. This small outbreak was very localized but worth investigating.
You only speculate upon how the disease got here. Might I suggest a few options? Insects travel by air, water, humans, animals, planes, cars, and trains. Some virus are planted by government officials as a testing tool. Others just lay in the dirt for decades waiting for the right condition to activate them. No matter how the virus got activated or delivered in that area, it was a small local incident that happened during a normal weather cycle.
Now that is logic. Have a wonderful Christmas and splendid New Year.
There goes the small farmer and the farmers maket !! geezz !! what next ?? Down with Government regulations affecting the smallest lof economies !! Dose this effect the Marijuana growers too ?? They will probably get an "Exception and Subsidies".
