I hear that when you give a million dollars for the field field to be named in memory of a life long donor, you should be pacified with 9" x 12" plaque and hung on some obscure wall. Until the foundation thinks it can sell that wall space... or Denny Washington has another bout of insecurity and demands it be taken down.
Enrollment numbers prove that parents aren't willing to trust the University of Montana with their youths nor their monies.
If a million dollars can't buy you a few gallons of paint and recognition for 50 years of support and numerous other large dollar donations, a $100,000 certainly won't buy an education.
Given any opportunity they'll sell your student out, just like they did the memory of John Hoyt.
Maybe a refund is in order to Cliff Edwards who thought enough of his friend to anonymously give a million dollars so that John would be remembered... the check's cashed, the foundation has forgot.
WOW! After almost a year, another comment? With a link to a well written commentary from 2015? As far as wearing a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it in Missoula now, in 2107, still no fear. Being openly gay? Same. A woman walking around in "provocative" clothing? Same. But keep an eye out for subtle changes. Like this recent announcement the the media isn't "announcing". NOTE AS OF 8:06 am 3/16 KGVO only source of story, printed, never announced on air.

Montana Elena for Liberty & Open Government Could it be that now Missoula and the UM have become more "diversified", an Easter event may be disturbing to people of another cultural flavor?
Easter 'Eggstravaganza' Not to be Held on UM Campus This Year
NOTICE NO ANNOUNCEMENT OF the 2017 Easter Eggstravaganza BEING MOVED off CAMPUS APPEARS ON THE UM WEB SITE
Easter Eggstravaganza - University Relations - University Of Montana
The University of Montanas flagship campus in Missoula produces an educated, aware and trained citizenry for the state of Montana and beyond. In addition to educational and research endeavors, UM is an integral component of the Missoula community, providing a gathering space for all Missoulians.
The 2016 Easter Eggstravaganza is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 26, 2016, on the UM Oval.
I have the same question Montana Elena has.
I'll add one more: So what ever happened with the investigation of the "fake letter", the subject of this Indy article ?
Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?
You might in Montana. Dont try it in Mecca.

Wasn't "Bike-centennial", headquartered in Missoula ?
Bike-centennial was a company or non-profit organization that promoted cross country bicycling , beginning, I believe in 1976 - the bi-centennial of the U.S. The designated, recommended, or most-promoted route began in Astoria, Oregon, went through Missoula, over Lost Trail, into the Big Hole, through Dillon, and on east, ending, I believe in either NYC or Washington, D.C.
It is a wonder how Senator Thomas could think of anything other in his political career than how he carried, supported and argued for Montana Power's demise in the 90's. Every Montana electrical user pays much higher rates now and forever because of this blunder!
I have tried to find some answers for three years . Where I've hunted for lots of years is closed now because the rancher has taken it out of block management. No body I talked to seems to know the law except you can't do it . I'm just about going to just cross and find out what the law is . I have lost a lot of hunting because of this but the rancher has gained thousands of acres. We all pay for this land and the ranchrest are the only ones that get to use it
Trump lies and blusters constantly to guard his exquisitely thin skin. It's like your dog rolling in smelly stuff; he's been told it's bad, but he just can't help himself. Real leaders have self discipline - Tester was wise not to take the baits Trump offered to Democratic Senators. The election margin debate is a clear loser for Trump, and Warren is plenty capable of defending herself from slurs. Don't jump into that stinky pile with Trump, that's his turf!
We need Senator Tester to stay on-target with the real issues regarding Trump: forcing release of the president's taxes, uncovering the Trump campaign's connections to Russia, and revealing the full extent of foreign interference in our elections. U.S. leaders, Democratic and Republican, must demand immediate, bipartisan, and transparent investigations of all these issues.
Self discipline and leadership are not shown only by withholding from unwise actions. You also have to do the right thing when that thing is needed, even if it's difficult. Tester must actively lead congress to start a real inquiry inquiry into Trump's campaign NOW. Just let dogs like Trump lie in their own stink.
Silence is complicity...especially for someone occupying a leadership position.
If "Jon thinks what President Trump called Senator Warren is offensive." If "Jon takes the integrity of our elections very seriously." Then, Jon needs to speak up. This is not the time for silence. We need our one sane senator to Speak the F**k UP!!!
Cue the Tester apologists ...
Devos' ideas are hatful to rural areas. Montana should be against her appointment.
This is why Senator Daines should not vote to confirm Betsy Devos to head the Department of Education. Betsy Devos has the same ideas on education that Greg Gianforte hyped during his campaign for Governor. Gianforte lost at the same time that the four other statewide Republican candidates won. The loss was stunning -- 30% of those voting for Republican A.G. Tim Fox snubbed Gianforte! Voting for Devos, will likely smear Senator Daines with the same election-losing ideas that cost Gianforte his election.
Regional Forester Leanne Marten signed off on this decision. As a retired forestry circus employee, I've notice over the years that the best, most difficult, and often controversial decisions were disproportionately made by female ranges, forest supervisors, etc. I suppose to say that they have bigger balls than their male counterparts would somehow be a sexist statement, so I won't say it, but you get the idea.
I love hearing stories like this. I sell Montana ranches for sale and to say it is a long shot for Montana horse industry to hit it big makes it that much sweeter. Congratulations to these guys and their risk taking paying off.
Great news and a huge congratulations to groups who took part in the lawsuit and the many activists and organizations that worked on this issue.
Hopefully one of the lessons here is that when politicians, or government agencies, fail to reign in corporate power, that the American people can still seek redress in the federal court system.
Not only is this important to remember in the era of President Trump, but it's also important to remember in an era where some conservation groups are much more interested in 'collaborating' with the timber industry, oil and gas industry, etc, while at the same time complaining about lawsuits or actually lobbying for legislation that effectively closes the courthouse doors on the American people.
Again, Congrats to all the people and groups who made this victory agains the mega-loads possible!
oh one last thing, von Lossberg saw data all right, he saw money from the Bloomberg backed anti-gunners from New York, and thought he better cash in while he could.
some half truths here in your article. "gun show sales" in Montana private face to face sales are legal, gun show or yard sale it doesn't matter the location...HOWEVER if a gun DEALER has sales at a gun show, then the BUYER must undergo a background check to purchase the gun.
Craigslist was mentioned, but know this, even advertising a gun or ammo for sale or trade is forbidden and the ad will be removed and the poster banned for life from using C-list.
there are indeed pages on the internet where one may advertise or purchase a gun. Armslist is one and that is governed by Montana's face to face, dealer sales laws. also Armslists is only a place to advertise, they do not physically touch a gun in any shape or form. again if a dealer is selling a gun on Armslist or any other form of internet advertising, the background check must be done. The federal Firearm license holder FFL must have records of every gun coming in, and everyone going out and must produce those records at will to the BATFE.
Right on! So glad you went and wrote this lovely post. I had a similar transformation on pussy hats. I'm so proud of my Missoula people. The Fairbanks March had 2,000 in -15 temps, it was incredible! I just saw that it got a shout out on Samantha Bee's Full Frontal. Stay strong.
