Re: “Best Shoe Store

I bought the wrong size shoes for years because the salesman didn't measure me. He went by what I was presently wearing. My feet hurt. Went to apodiatrist. HE DIDN'T MEASURE EITHER! Finally at a Redwing store the clerk INSISTED on checking my foot size. 13B instead of the 12D which I'd been wearing. The drill was the stores didn't stock 13s and they went wider with a 12D to make the sale! I think Hide and Soe is the best shoe store I've ever done business with!

Re: “Best Kids' Clothing

In my opinion, the best Kids Clothing is at Burlington. I bought the new Osh Kosh B'Gosh outfits there and they were so much cheaper than the other stores had them for. My Kids love them.

Re: “Best Tanning Salon

"Maintaining a killer tan year-round can be tough"--no, not really. Tanning is literally a killer and is right up there with smoking for acquiring cancer. Why do you continue to have this as a category? Why not combine it with the smoke shops and call it "Cancer!: Guaranteed!" Don’t believe me? Call any dermatologist in Missoula and ask them what they think about tanning beds and tanning in general.

Re: “Best Tanning Salon

There is a fantastic range of "shades" available in the tanning market. The orange colour can be caused by other factors though - including lack of (or poor) skin preparation before appying the tanning product. A good tanning technician will advise on this before application.

No prison time: Missoula tattoo parlor owner sentenced for sexual abuse
StoryDiscussionNo prison time: Missoula tattoo parlor owner sentenced for sexual abuse

A Missoula tattoo parlor owner who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a teenage girl over several years received a 15-year suspended sentence Tuesday in Missoula District Court.

James Lee Burns, owner of Painless Steel on South Fifth Street West, must also pay $39,000 in restitution to cover five years of counseling costs for his victim, and register as a Tier 1 sex offender, meaning that he's considered a low risk for repeating the offense.

Burns' attorney, John Smith, had argued for a six-year deferred sentence, meaning the case would be dismissed if he served out the six years without incident. But Deputy Missoula County Attorney Suzy Boylan demurred, saying that "I think between the charge and the sentence, he is getting an incredible break for which he should be incredibly grateful."

Burns pleaded guilty in September to a felony count of sexual assault. His victim accused him of molesting her about a dozen times, beginning when she was about 13 until she was 20.

"The only reason you are not going to prison is that you have done an excellent job of cleaning up the mess that you have made," District Court Judge Douglas Harkin told Burns.

Boylan pointed out that Burns and his wife now have a 2-year-old adopted son, which means that Burns inevitably will be in contact with other children.

"We need to be very careful of the contact he has with small children," Harkin said. " ... As the boy grows up, there will be other boys and there will be girls hanging around."

Smith told Harkin that one of the conditions placed upon Burns stipulates that he can't be around other children unless he's accompanied by an approved and trained adult who's aware of Burns' background.

Another condition, said Boylan, is that Burns have no contact with his victim unless she initiates it through his probation officer.

The victim specifically requested the suspended sentence, Boylan said, which means that the charge stays on his record.

"Her feeling was that he did not need to go to prison, but needs some accountability - and some public accountability," she said.…
