Re: “Mountain High

Anyone considered volunteering with an arborist in Calgary? Let me tell you that there are few things more stress relieving than being handed an ax and being told to hit things with until you're tired. Its a fun time.

Re: “Mountain High

Sorry duder, the online version of things smashes her all together, often making the layout different than the print version. All that kind of stuff is changing as the paper and website get updated. To answer your question: Yes, I have heard of paragraph, but I am a huge Henry James fan, thus a long paragraph fan.

Re: “Mountain High

please remember that this area was once a tropical area. Your concerns are not going to change the cycles the earth has been going through for eons. Your endeavors while well meaning are like the little boy on the titanic trying to scoop out the water with a small pail. Sorry lets look at finding ways to accept the change and look at working with nature.

Re: “Mountain High

Thank you for your kind words about Cameron. Missoula has truly, truly, lost a compassionate spirit.

Re: “Mountain High

I have never read so much sorry ass shit in my entire life...but that's what most Independant readers are..sorry ass National Enquirer wanna be readin uber lib sacks of shit that never earned a dime they have in their pockets, waiting for a hand out F'rs. What make any of you think that it was theft rather than an honest mistake. Certainly, the tenacity of the response was unwarranted but I know both parties and I can assure you that no one was stealing anything. Shame on all of you for making all of this bigger than it was. An angry dad and a drunk dude missing his poles egged on by a bunch of "shredders"...all in front of a bunch of kids. Get your heads out of your ass...they are poles...F'n poles...put your values in check and give a brother the benefit of the doubt....who cares about poles and what parent would honestly steal wasn't theft, it was a mistake blown out or proportion. Back to the independant reader portion...if you actually read the entire portion of this comment, congrats, I short changed you...I would have suspected you would have stopped at the first notion of someone attacking your commune...maybe there is hope.

Re: “Mountain High

Hello, I'd just like to point out that the link for the Missoula Country RAC is bunk: I called the Forest Service about this on Monday and they sent me hard copies of an application form...but they seemed generally uninterested in the fact that the link they sent out wasn't working. This is typical of the Forest Service's website, which as someone who visits it frequently, I'd estimate you have a 50/50 chance of actually being able to find what you're looking for. I also asked the Forest Service what the deadline was for the RAC application. The answer I got back was "We didn't set a deadline but within a couple weeks would be helpful." Hmmm...

Re: “Mountain High

notafanofskidmark, you have a diseased and defective brain. And from what I gather the guy has a few Audis so I doubt he is hurting for money but that is not really my point. You're missing it completely. However, on one hand I sort of think I see your point in that it is risky doing this king of thing. You never know when some nut job will go back to vehicle and get a gun and come back and kill you. But I'd still rather defend my family and my property rather than live life like a total coward. Not to mention that cartoon is funny as hell and should be published here instead of this attempt at humor in the article. I don't think that article was all that bad though.

Re: “Mountain High

Do you think the guy should have just said "go ahead, dude, you can have my poles?" Cost and or the economy is not the issue here. When was the last time any of you have gotten something stolen from you and just surrendered? "oh, you go ahead and take them, I'll just buy some more, they're only 40 bucks!" If you do surrender to thievery then I pity you-you could save a lot of money by not allowing people to steal your shit and feel better about yourselves in the end.

Re: “Mountain High

Is everyone in Montana so poor that they'll fight over $40 ski poles? Don't get so worked up over this you poop yourself.

Re: “Mountain High

Well, "Comrade" you should equally be disappointed in the person who wouldn't return the poles that he stole. It's worth mentioning. Don't thank me for reading your pathetic little "newspaper", the only reason I did was for the aforementioned article-your immaturity and lack of professionalism has cured me of ever wanting to peruse it again.

Re: “Mountain High

Hi, this is Jonas Ehudin, and as much as I'd like to be anonymous in Missoula, that'd be quite a trick. I did indeed witness last week's ski pole fiasco firsthand, as I was standing within hearing distance of the enraged duo. I offer these details: There was the brown-jacketed guy yelling from the porch—sorry, Mrs.ScratchedUpSkiPoles, your husband was freaking out in the snow, not sitting up there swilling PBR—who probably helped elevate the chest-thumping to physical blows, as well as the knife Mr. Poles drew from his back pocket to attempt to scrape off the tape/rubberized coating covering the image of a naked woman on the poles, which he insisted would prove his claim. I'm not interested in adding any fuel to this charged topic, so in brief, I'm comfortable with the way I reported the exchange. Contrary to blogular belief, I'm not actually an advocate of crime, nor of capitulating to "evil-doers," and at the same time I believe in civilized conflict resolution. I was disappointed in what I saw, and felt I spoke for many Missoulians in highlighting the interaction as inappropriate. Thanks for reading, and sweet Audis.

Re: “Mountain High

It is impossible to address the problem of rampant crime without talking about the moral responsibility of the intended victim. Crime is rampant because the law-abiding, each of us, condone it, excuse it, permit it, submit to it. We permit and encourage it because we do not fight back, immediately, then and there, where it happens. Crime is not rampant because we do not have enough prisons, because judges and prosecutors are too soft, because the police are hamstrung with absurd technicalities. The defect is there, in our character. We are a nation of cowards and shirkers. Except for a few.

Re: “Mountain High

jonas, bro, sorry to see you go through this shit. there is a forum called audiworld where people like this reside. they are a bunch of immature, self righteous, antisocial, and morons that have no life. they sit on a forum all day posting one stupid story after another of their pathetic lives. every once in a while they'll post porn and follow it up with derogatory posts of their exgirlfriends, exwives, and everything else in between. its any wonder this antisocial thug had the ability to conceive a child. dont mind them, they are idiots. they have posted your story in the forum and are having a laugh amongst themselves.

Re: “Mountain High

Well, random "journalist", while I was not there for this rumble at the 'bowl, I did hear account of it first hand since I'm married to the "dude on the porch-you know who you are". While I certainly do not condone violence, especially in front of my child, I also do not condone theft. While they may not be the nicest set of poles, they do in fact belong to my husband-bought and paid for. This was not as petty of an incident as you imply, it's the basic difference between right and wrong-it's simply not acceptable to take the belongings of someone else and it is furthermore unacceptable to refuse to return them after you've been busted stealing them. Lucky for you, the incident (which you obviously did not witness firsthand) gave you a pretty amusing reference point for what would have otherwise been a really boring article. So, on behalf of my husband and child I say "you're welcome".
