Re: “A cut too far: UM offloads annual Easter egg hunt

Or cut the professors who contribute nothing to the University, who use resources to further line their own pockets while collecting outrageous stipends.

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

With a couple of exceptions our current city government has no problem with tax and spend tax and spend. You know your in trouble when your driver in incapacitated and the council sets up a special fund for those who can't pay their taxes.

Re: “Zinke pressed by opponents of bison refuge transfer

Zinke is in the pockets of the CSKT Tribe and they brown nose him beyond belief, so I am sure Zinke WILL MAKE SURE the Bison Range is GIVEN to the CSKT Tribe. They will then make him an Honorary Tribal member

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

Did you know that Missoula taxes have gone up 95% over the past 12 years? The last year we didn't see a tax increase was 2010.

Even if you find an affordable house to buy (and not just rent), you'll have a heck of a time paying both your through-the-roof mortgage as well as your tax bill...which is the highest in the state, by the way.

Re: “A cut too far: UM offloads annual Easter egg hunt

Cut out the dead wood - it's time to get rid of high-priced admin positions...permanently. There are too many, we don't know what many of them do, and they in no way benefit students.

You mean the Mayor cutting the ribbon at the Old Sawmill opening was just affordability theater? Color me shocked!

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

All these grand plans and the most simple thing is now impossible. Missoula as a city will never be affordable for regular working class people in the future. It was not so easy when my wife and I were in our 20s. It is way harder now and it will only get worse.

It takes some real courage to fight this fight, wishing them acquittals on all charges

Re: “The drama triangle

Absolutely wrong. This crime knows no social boundaries, period.
The male bias in this town is criminal.
A women beats her boyfriend with a hose. He bleeds as the police tell her she can stay home without arrest, but is charged.
A man calls the police to remove his violent ex-girlfriend from his home and is arrested because the little sociaopath tells the police she FEELS afraid of him. The police audio is missing the man's testimony as well as the witness who sided with the guy who called Police???????

What??

Then the gal keeps comimg but his home which he can be arrested for so he calls the police and shorlty afterward his home is raoded for all electronic devises, he is held as a flight risk on a 3 day weekend when the Prosecutor is aware is attorney is out of town???

No charges were filed in the last incident. Pure harassment for calling the police as advised by his attorney.

An equality needs to be administered in domestic violence situations or no justice will ever be served.

Re: “How Bob Giordano and Free Cycles made their dream home a reality.

Great artlicl! The continued growth, giving, compassion and committment to a true passion Bob and those associated with free cycles take on is Positively inspiring.

Re: “A conservative group put UM historian Tobin Miller Shearer on 'Professor Watchlist.' To Shearer, the threat sounds awfully familiar.

Hyperbole much? Lol....typical of people who dont so much "reason", as "feel".

A 'watchlist' put in place to EDUCATE students and their families about where they may, or may not, want to invest their education dollars is NOT the "same as what Hitler did!", or "the same as what McCarthy did!".

Nor is it, as far as I have seen, "a hate list".

Now, you may have gotten disagreeable feedback because of methods/beliefs EXPOSED by the notoriety of being listed on that website. But is that not similar to feedback left throughout comments section's of websites, or social media itself?

Not to mention, of course, the infamous SPLC website. Which left-wingers have heralded for YEARS as "doing great work to call out the intolerant among us".

Well, shoe's on the other foot now, Prof.

And hilarity ensues.... ;)

Re: “No good answers

Guardian ad litems cover up crimes just like this one against babies all the time and judges protect them which is a crime. Why? Because most GALS are mostly lawyers and use desperate abused women and babies to serve thier larger clients. One loss for a desperate abused woman and child sacrificed to give a win to the better paying customer even if that better paying customer is a pedophile woman and child abuser. Clerk of courts is free to research cases. So everyone should educate themselves. Then contact the victims and explain they can report the truth to the ODC which investigates low life attorneys like this. Then report their findings about the judge to the judicial standard commission.

Re: “No good answers

Report to the FBI. Thousands of cases eerily similar exist because the judge abuses power protects the guardian ad life me and lawyers because they get caught operating outside the law and misleading the court for the simple reason of making back door deals for other cases they have with each other and preserving that chip in the pocket for the rainy day, The proverbial "owe you one" next time around. Who gets hurt? Girls babies and women so the lawyers can line their pockets and judges protect their friends. Public corruption is what it really is and every case needs to be reported to police FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THEY'LL DO NOTHING and that color of law violation for protecting the lawyers which are a whole other back door deal - the make reports to the FBI and pray to God the Feds raid the courthouse clerks office with buckets of extra handcuffs.

Re: “No good answers

Maybe some of the SITTING PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDERS SHOULD BE SEXUALLY ABUSED so they can understand what it is like to be sexually abused.

Re: “No good answers

Maybe some of the victims could run for political office so they can help the public understand what it is like to be sexually abused. I mean from the stand point of recovery and future potential of the victims. Obviously, this kind of crime will never cease to exist or stop happening because it is reprehensibly too human.

I was a 40 year old first time snowboarder, and the folk at Board of Missoula taught me the ropes. I am so happy that Bacon is living this dream and so happy Board of Missoula is back!

Re: “Board of Missoula returns to its roots

Chris Bacon and Edge of the World have always been a support for the young teenagers and young adults in this town. Giving them a safe and secure place to hang out and skateboard. My son is the wonderful man he is today partly because of the influence of Chris Bacon. I hope and pray for your continued success Chris.
