Re: “Historic Harold's Club closing after half-century of business

I understand that the building would need massive renovations to bring it up to code. I'd check to see how the limited access because of the train tracks you have to cross to get in or out affect it. The water supply is very limited. The neighborhood has to use a water tower that they pay for. There was a fire near the bar last year. The nearest fire hydrant was across highway 200. I'd be VERY cautious about buying this place.

Re: “Judge overturns commission's approval of Legacy Ranch subdivision

"Ravalli County Commission Chairman Jeff Burrows says the commission was 'surprised' by the ruling.... β€œIt’s probably dead unless us and the developers or whoever comes through and appeals it up,” he says of Legacy Ranch.”
If they're all as stupid as Ravalli County Commission Chairman Jeff Burrows is inarticulate, god help Ravalli county, and no wonder the judge overturned their asinine decision.

Re: “New life for Lincoln School?

So the city is telling a private property owner how to run their property. Mandating these restrictions on things like parking only increase the cost of doing business for people living in Missoula.

Re: “Glacier Park hosting new InstaMeet and photo walk series

I have a question, does @theanydempster need a special use permit for her photography? Seems to me like it's as commercial as anything anyone does in the park? She's being paid and she's photographing models, is there a permit required and if so, is it given courtesy, or does she have to pay for it like everyone else? One could very easily make the argument that any photos posted on line to promote travel are exempt, but that's not how the park service looks at it. So, can you do a follow up about how this is permitted under the park service regulations?

Re: “City of Missoula wins Mountain Water case

"...a municipally owned utility would be better equipped to serve the public's interest, rather than a corporate owner with shareholders."

That should be self evident to all but the most hard core, right wing, repuglikan "free market" and privatization worshipers.

After Mountain Water is wrested from the greedy, sweaty fists of the Carlyle Group, lets go after Northwest Energy and reincarnate Montana Power as a public utility !

Re: “Happiest Hour: Draught Works' Berliner Weisse

I can't wait! In the mid- or late '90s, another brewer in Missoula (I think it was Beargrass Brewing, a predecessor to Kettlehouse) put out a Berliner Weisse. They offered a flavoring called Woodruff that was dark green in color and tasted like vanilla. I remember enjoying a few pints of it at the Rhino and I've often wondered if we'd see it again.

Re: “Wilma donates projectors to Roxy

it is a wonderful idea and I hope they will fit in the Roxy. I also hope that the roxy will continue to show the old fashioned movies from the 40 and 50 reel to reel.!! have an old fashioned movie night like it use to be.!! you could even hold a costumed one where people would dress up in that period and hand out a price for the "best dressed".!! give it some thought.!!

Re: “Ready or not

Taxi service in Missoula is almost non-existent. We need to push past "traditional" business and get creative. I have had nothing but terrible experience trying to reserve a cab in MT. So, even if these app based companies fail in MT, we cannot be afraid of trying to become more efficient.

People supporting trapping give the same old blah, blah, overpopulation, blah, blah, heritage nonsense. When will they ever have the courage to stand up and say "yes, I like killing animals and don't give a crap about suffering and cruelty".

Great job MTA! Ideologically driven fanatics thrive on misinformation and sensationalism which is why the animal rights extremists always obstruct facts, statistics and the consensus of experts.

Re: “Activists concerned over trapping presentation offered to Bitterroot students

The Anti's would never complain if their miserable asses were there with all the lies and deceit they use to spread rumors and mistruths about trapping. Remember these are the same folks that sue to stop timber cutting to save lynx habitat, read their posts on Footloose Montana and Trap Free Montana Public Lands. If they were to ever ban trapping on public lands they would then turn to banning trapping on private lands, then the Hunters would be their mark as they hate hunting they would try to ban that. Fishing would also be a target. You can see they hate anything using animals for food or clothing. Most of them also complain of ranchers on public land. Stand together all Ye sportsman never let them get a toe hold on anything, they are like cancer and will spread once established.

Re: “Activists concerned over trapping presentation offered to Bitterroot students

This claim that there is an over-population of fur bearers does not match the facts. Pine marten have just been reintroduced in the Belt mountains after decades of extermination by trapping. Swift fox have been reintroduced multiple times because of trapping. Wolverine are on the edge because of trapping. Fisher are so rare, only anecdotal sightings, not evidence, claim they exist in Montana. River otters are on the verge of the endangered list. Even beavers have to be reintroduced in certain areas. And on the list goes, all due to recreational and commercial trapping which is inhumane. There is no reason to continue this unethical and damaging 'sport.'

Re: “Activists concerned over trapping presentation offered to Bitterroot students

Loss of habitat is the number one reason so many different species of animals ate going extinct.
This is caused by the following in order of prominence in overall global effects.
Human encroachment, draining wetlands, eat outs, famine, caused by drought, wildfires,
Disease, pestilence, depredation, fishing, hunting, trapping.

Trapping is the least effective killer, so in animal rights activists minds, this low lying fruit is ripe for Pocking, attack, demonization, politicalization, humanization. Hence animal rights people must by needs distort the truth about trapping, as it is a substitutive or compensatory mortality, meaning its overall effects to the population as a whole,are negligible, or nothing !

However, there is s benefit to agriculture, animal prey populations, and human populations, by controlling
Over population in local areas, depredation control,limiting loss of livestock, crops, and mitigating overall ecosystem effects to a minimum. This increases the carrying capacity of the available remain habitat, strengthening gene pools, promotes natural competition, and selection, thereby improving the rstebof infant survival, and increasing the flocks, herds, clutches, prides, groups, breeding, birth rate, etc.

Re: “Activists concerned over trapping presentation offered to Bitterroot students

When so much of our eco-system is being destroyed by use of chemicals that kill off and eliminate most of our beneficial song birds and insects, the few that remain are devowered by the predators which are mainly fur bearers, and also by deforestation of natural habitat for all these creatures. Those at the top of the food chain become over populated and have to eat something which further eliminates more of our song birds and beneficial insects. Trapping some of the over populated fur bearers helps to maintain some of the prey creatures so the do not go extinct. These people in the cities that enjoy a bug free, weed free, luxury lifestyle have their heads in the sand when it comes to knowing where all this stuff comes from and have the audacity to conndem those that live in the rural areas and try to keep a sustainable resource. I wish they would get off their fat asses and learn something about the real world instead of putting so much emphasis on these man made sports that take up so much of their time and education time that contribute nothing to keeping our natural resources in order. Most of them destroy habitat and species to have a space to be played on and in. One of the worst offenders is the RAVEN and MAGPIES which prey on song bird young in the nest to feed their young. They now nest and are here in this area year around when they were only here in this area during the winter when I was a kid 70 years ago. Makes a difference in the whole ecosystem

Re: “Activists concerned over trapping presentation offered to Bitterroot students

Trapping is a viable tool in predator management. If you go to one of Footloose Montana's presentation it's filled with nothing but lies and ignorance.
