Re: “With the Dakota Access pipeline tabled by the Corps, what's next at Standing Rock?

Hopefully on Jan. 20, 2017 this will be reversed. Why would any one in their right mind think that thousands of oil tankers daily, pulled by a train, crossing the river on a bridge, would be safer than the pipeline, which will be the safest ever built?? It has high tech safety measures that will shut down the flow immediately if there is a leak anywhere on the system. A bunch of closed minded yoyos who have nothing to do but protest. And I bet my bottom dollar at least 80% of the natives protesting don't work (and may never have worked), and have sucked off of taxpayer money all their lives. The reservation system has done nothing but keep most natives in poverty at the expense of the working taxpayer.

Re: “Could Denise Juneau do what Royce Engstrom didn't?

Well written Dan! Concise, to the point and dead-on accurate! Denise Juneau is a product of the Montana educational system. A darn fine product! Im not certain that she belongs in politics where facts are there to be manipulated.
Somebody has let the air out of UMs tires. Dosent matter who. We need to limp into a gas station muy pronto. We dont need a genius. The problem is well defined. UM needs a leader that faculty, staff and local people will follow without hair-tearing and garmet wrending. I nominate Denise Juneau. Dave Dickensen is busy.

Re: “Backcountry Hunters and Anglers proposes a Quiet Waters Initiative

The "Green Decoys" are a sly way of appearing to be hunters, fishermen, etc when they are really extreme environmentalists.

For example,Jackson Hole has at least a dozen of the "Green Decoy" organizations which ask for donations from hunters, fishermen, motorized recreationists only to use that money to close the forest to all but their interests.

Re: “UM to start ranking programs—and cutting losses

This piece is really smart and, from a limited-view spot on the inside, accurate. Nice work, Derek.

Re: “After six years of growth, Missoula's curling scene is ready for an ice place to call home.

I'm in! Just gotta figure out some way to stay in Missoula over the winter! I love curling. It's in my blood and bones. Just ask David, he knows what it's like. Next winter, I'm curling even if I've gotta sleep in a dumpster. Tim

Re: “Could Denise Juneau do what Royce Engstrom didn't?

No, no she can not. Working with her at OPI, it was obvious that she could not even manage that office effectively. Much more of a spokesperson than a real leader. Also, she knows very little regarding higher education and is unfit for job. The UM needs someone experienced with modernizing liberal arts programs, mending faculty relationships, and increasing enrollment. Juneau is just not qualified. She would make a fine high school superintendent or maybe even dean of a small two-year college, but she is not capable of leading UM.

Re: “UM to start ranking programs—and cutting losses

I got a degree in History from UM in 2008. I can tell you, cuts to the History Department are just fine. I say that because I know the faculty and the lecture halls can only do so much. In fact, they don't really do anything. It's your willingness to get to the library, read your books, and do your writing that's important...not some old fogey dependent on your tuition dollars to pay for his healthcare and retirement.

I've written 7 history books and UM had nothing to do with that. It was my own decision, my own get-up-and-go, and my own hard work and discipline.

Students - and graduates - succeed because of how much they care and how much they work, not because of the size of their program or department.

Re: “Could Denise Juneau do what Royce Engstrom didn't?

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, maybe someone can ask Juneau 3 things that she'd do to get UM back on track.

What are 3 things the U needs to do?

What do we in the community need to do as well to see it get back on track?

Re: “Westside project barrels ahead

I don't want to disrespect the private landowners' issues in this lawsuit, which as far as I can tell are legitimate. However, from my work that involved writing comments and the Objection to the Westside timber sale, there are more profound issues that relate to the direct damage to national forest land from logging and road construction. And of course, the fact that taxpayers are subsidizing timber mills, based upon fraudulent agency and industry "science." This pseudoscience is based on the false proposition that nature can't heal the forests, if humans jsut get out of the way. And that somehow these fire-prone ecosystems can be made safe for homeowners by logging miles away from homes. In other words, they want to "make the forests great again!"

This is the exact same propaganda the Forest Service is using to justify logging all over the national forest system. And that should be of concern to all of us national forest "landowners"--the American public.

These issues get left behind when the media focus on these more narrow private interests.

Re: “Faking Left

Beth - you have no clue about the causes of climate change. Carbon dioxide isn't the culprit, as the science proves that CO2 does not drive climate change - other factors, such as the precession of the equinoxes, have more effect than CO2. In fact, increases in CO2 typically occur AFTER the temperature has already begun to rise. If CO2 was the cause, then CO2 would have to begin to increase BEFORE the temperature began to increase. For a comprehensive review, see the link below.

Re: “Snoop, dogged

DOOM has been in the game for quite sometime. Some would argue even longer than Snoop. MF DOOM started with KMD. He was Zev Love X then. They had decent rotation on MTV back then. Them with the likes 3rd Base. I remember seeing them on YO! MTV raps. Please do not lump him in with the likes of a substandard artist such as Kanye. Thanks.

Re: “Brotherhood takes a road trip

Thanks Alexsa. The press kit for I'm a Patriot shows your name as "Alexa" in the cast list, so that's what we went with. I've updated it to the correct spelling online. Apologies for the error.

Re: “Ill treatment

The State has 6 lawyers ??? These folks have one?? This reminds me of "One flew over the" you know the rest. What a sad state we live in when we can't even take care of our most needy ones and they end up warehoused like animals. This is criminal and I hope these poor folks can somehow find justice in a broken system that has ignored them for who knows how long.

Re: “Who’s calling the shots on Missoula’s gun ordinance?

This is insane. How the Missoula city council thinks this ordinance is somehow a good idea is beyond me. It's unconstitutional. It's wasting taxpayers' money. And I don't know of one, single gunowner that supports this, contrary to what the article says.

Re: “Engen's return

I briefly lived in "rape Nation" Missoula Montana and I have to say I have4 never lived in such a morally corrupt, misogynist, racist city. I have lived all over the world. No surprise the city is liberal/democrat. The University of Montana is another embarrassment to the State Of Montana, Academia and living the ethical life.

You have a liberal City with an epidemic of rape, drunk driving, pandering to the "Holy" mediocre untalented football players that this tiny city puts on the field every fall. A City which has one of the largest Rape Crisis Centers and spousal abuse centers and yet it is a tiny town. What a shock that a liberal city would support the enabling wife of a serial rapist Hillary Clinton. The city and University both who are led by Egomaniacal liberals.

This is a city where they are in denial about the serious problems of alcoholism, meth, suicide, misogyny and Bigotry. While Missoula puts on this faade of being a caring city that embraces all cultures. The facts tell the opposite, It is a city that lacks Blacks and Hispanics in top position in Business. It is a city that allows a driver to plow down High School girls. He served less than a year and a few months . Two of the girls Ashley Patenaude, 14, and 15-year-old Taylor Cearley died instantly and two others were hospitalized with injuries. Teal Packard, 14, is recovering at St. Patrick Hospital. The fourth girls name was not released, although she has been released from the hospital.


All Missoula Liberals give Victims is symbolism over substance Vigils. while David James DelSignore the man who was 29 when he plowed down these two girls is again on the street. Missoula is a city that must have alcohol at every event. I remember taking my one year old to a kids event downtown and alcohol was served at the event in the park. You have a city council member who just a few years ago was cited for a DUI. The City Council member denied she was drunk. Denial is a part of the M.O. for Missoulians who seem to be looking at life through rose colored glasses.

Chase Callen, a candidate in Ward 5,(sounds like he could be a drinking buddy of Bill Clinton) was charged with felony burglary in Missoula on Aug. 27, 2012, and pleaded not guilty two days later. (what a shock) (All women who accuse men in Missoula of violence, rape, sexual abuse, must be lying)
Arresting documents alleged he kicked in a screen on the third floor of a sorority house near the University of Montana campus at 3:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. Also, In January 2011, Callen was also arrested for DUI "per se. Proving a DUI per se in Montana doesn't require proof of impairment, only that an individuals blood alcohol level was 0.08 or greater at the time of driving.

Missoula law enforcement has had to deal with a number of high-speed chases recently, each of which involved a number of felony charges. Missoula County Deputy Attorney Jason Marks says that it appears meth use may be a common theme.

I left Missoula with my family because I did not want to raise my son in a city that allowed crime to go unchecked and a City that put College Football players before the safety of women. I at a previous time in my life won awards as a director for my anti drug and rape awareness public service announcements. I sent presentation to the University of Montana and others ports teams urging them to Run Rape Awarene
ss PSA'S at all sports events in Missoula. This obviously did not go over well. The University actually told me. "We do not have a problem with sexual assault" Along with not having a drug epidemic, a homeless epidemic, a serious problem with misogyny and sexual abuse?

The City of Missoula, Montana, The powers that be in Government, Media, Sports, Academia
have been spinning so long that the city must be too dizzy to grasp the truth.
