Re: “Missoula City Council endorses Indigenous Peoples Day

One step for the Indigenous people, and one giant leap for man kind. In my eyes were all equal and should all be treated as such. I am posting this from Australia were I am a student at Southern Cross University and I wish that more countries would follow in the same deal of not celebrating a land founded by the dominant culture. Because they did not find anything at all except that there was a better race of people around the world.

Re: “UM Foundation opts against divestment from fossil fuels

What was the alternative to fossil fuels that the groups presented? What about implementation of that plan?

Right now fossil fuels work and on a wide basis.

Can you replace them while still meeting demand for their energy?

Re: “Environmentalists caught in diesel deceit

Somebody needs to provide some information and proof that gasoline pollutes more than a diesel as far as greenhouse gases are concerned.

Re: “Announcement of new Chipotle provokes gun-rights debate

It's easy to mentally separate the issue into grown ups and children, and that in turn makes it very easy to characterize the debate. I'm glad, tho, I guess, that this country protects the rights of adult children to throw tantrums over what is reasonable when it comes to playing with their toys. My friends kids occasionally make it clear they are unhappy while in public places.. The best way to deal with it I'm told is to slowly teach them to control themselves as someday other adults will expect them to behave like responsible, well adjusted people.

If you're worried some other person armed with a high powered rifle is going to attack and this is why you feel its necessary to carry yours, then behave like any other lethally armed defender and post yourself outside while your loved ones, or the random unarmed public, orders their food in the obvious security inspired by the display of high powered assault rifles. Works all throughout dictatorial Africa.

Re: “Showtime

While I am glad to see the Grand dame getting some well needed attention, and that awful paint job in the lobby by previous owners removed. I can not help but be upset about the Robert Morton Organ being taken out. There are very few in existence that are of that quality. The parts alone are worth probably $200,000 or more. The color scheme is not anything close to a Pantages Theater, but at least they are moving forward with their vision. I think the luster and grandeur of the original Wilma was much more vibrant. All this brown, taupe and beige is nothing that would be considered an old performance house color scheme. The Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra with Ferrante & Teicher opened the Wilma in 1921, followed in years by such greats as Mahalia Jackson, Marion Anderson, Vivian Boys Choir, Rosalind Russell, Basil Rathbone, Caorl O'Conner, Bonnie Raitt, Greg Almond and countless others. I wish them well and at least the old girl got a makeover. I am certain Edna Wilma & Eddie Sharp would be proud that the theater is still up and running, however some of the aesthetic choices would never have been given a thumbs up. But these are modern times and you have to change with the times. Or at least that is what they say. Good Luck to Nick and Robin and I will poke my head in next time I am home to see her.

Re: “Federal advisory council recommends cancellation of Badger-Two Medicine leases

[U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally] "Jewell will have the final say on whether Solenex’s permit to drill will be granted or the company’s lease cancelled."

In light how the feds were rolled (yet again) by the politically all-too-powerful livestock and fossil fuels industries, Jewell's decision to NOT list the Greater Sage Grouse as a threatened or endangered species under the Endangered Species Act, in spite of near unanimity among the scientific community that listing is indeed warranted, probably doesn't bode well for the future of the Badger-Two Medicine.

Jewell's resume suggested that she might show some strong environmental leadership as Sec. Interior, but she's sold her soul to the devil and is just another low-rent political prostitute, of which we have all too many.

Re: “Announcement of new Chipotle provokes gun-rights debate

I don't want open carry in businesses. Open carry is find when you're out hiking or fishing (and obviously hunting), but isn't really needed in town, with the except of transport. So yeah if you're walking with your gun to the range or gun shop it makes sense, but if you feel you need to have a gun everytime you go into any business, then get a concealed permit. I trust CCW people, they've been tested, they are usually decently reasonable people who've been approved as not being a high risk. I don't like open carry, because only an idiot would open carry a gun into most businesses and I really don't trust idiots with guns.

Re: “Land art

We are lucky to have artists like Claire Emery with creative ideas to help us be aware of the importance of preserving land for farming, as Missoula's population increases and there is more pressure to cement over our rich soil.

Re: “Land art

We are so fortunate to have artists like Claire Emery with creative ideas to help Missoulians be aware of the importance of preserving land for farming -- which we will need more and more as our population increases.

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.... “It’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.
