Re: “Biking Bad

"I cut down many of the trees on Meow Mix in 2005, something for which I still feel ashamed, but what was I suppossed to do, quit my trails job. I fully agree with Mr. Power that any ecological damage caused by the original Meow Mix trail is dwarfed by the impacts from the Lolo N.F.' efforts to close the trail. "
Don't be ashamed. All one has to do is open a sattelite view on Google Maps and there are much greater damages being inflicted by others who simply have deep pockets. This dialogue has made me grow quite weary. I'm from missoula and my Dad and brothers rode the rattlesnake every day on their dirt bikes without issue. Seriously people there are millions of acres of forested land and a trail affects such a small percentage that I give serious kudos to those who are willing to break their back creating new trails. This new mentality that we were never supposed to use the land that is available to us, but rather leave it to timber companies and mining operations to rape and pillage drives me crazy. Stop hugging trees and use them. Stop tearing up artwork that many man hours went into creating and use your resources to plan more recreational opportunities.

Re: “Missoula and beer: A history

Hello: It was great news to hear that "Highlander" was back and has been back for some time. Happened to thing about it his afternoon and went to the "web". Grew up in Polson. As a teenager in the early to mid 50's Highlander was "The Beer". It was in the bottle and not the can. Remember quite a few nights at Turtle Lake with classmates and Highlander. One beer that became somewhat popular was Coors - out of Denver (i think).
Hope to come back to Montana, living in Thailand at this time, and have a "Highlander" in the bottle.

Thanks for a great story.

Re: “News without a view

as a 70's journalism student I learned to expect a lot from daily newspapers. My expectations continue a downward slide that coincides with the conglomeration/corporatism that has gutted American Journalism. At one time I made a point of reading at least two of our state's daily papers every day, cover to cover. I no longer bother. It was predicted that the internet and email would spell doom for the Postal Service, much the same is presumed to be true for print journalism. Online shopping turned doom to boom for USPS; not counting the 75 year pre-payment fiasco inflicted by Congress the Post Office has had multi-billion dollar surpluses for the past four years. Some more intelligent thinking could do the same turn-around for Print Media.

Re: “Has the Green Investment Group sold Missoula down the river?

I'd like to respond to the comment by Bathurst Native. I say that when life gives you rocks you can always use them to build a rock garden. If indeed all that has been left behind is a war zone, what those in power might do is work on bringing in a film crew and check out the viability of building this property into a film location perhaps even a film studio. MGM eat your heart out.

Re: “Under the halo

If you ever read this, Jim, I'm so sorry for your loss. I had no idea you lost your son so close to the death of my Grandpa Mike. That must have been an extremely tough month. Thank you for sharing your story with the Missoula Independent.

Re: “For the mentally ill behind bars in Montana, life goes from bad to worse

I have a master's degree in psychology and a bachelor degree in biology. Sometimes it takes years to correctly identify a diagnosis and to prescribe the right medications that do not aggravate the condition. What amazes me is that this prison psychiatrist set this young man up for failure by not keeping him on medications that were working for him. You do not help the mentally ill by torturing them further! It is inhumane to do so. I have watched my own grandson be tortured because of the ignorance of the current judicial system in Great Falls, Montana. There are other professionals who do acknowledge this is wrong. Others do not care to intervene. Injustice currently happened to my grandson when he was doing so well and is not guilty of the charges. There was a partial judge on his case that I asked to be recused long ago. This young man was attending his Christian church, had finally talked someone into giving him a chance and hiring him, and was taking care of his family. he had already been held i isolation for 6 months before this judge's latest ruling. A plea bargain had already been reached by the attorney including the prosecuting attorney, and the psychiatrist..and yet the judge sentenced him to 15 years for ridiculous charges that are not even the truth. I intend to fight this to the end and also write the governor and editors of other newspapers before my grandson manages to commit suicide in their corrupt system of justice.

Re: “Missoula’s Old Haunts

As a student at U. Montana and a resident of Brantley Hall in the' 80's, I can attest to the haunted reputation of this former dormitory. In fact, after hearing about the ghost, I decided to instigate an investigation of my
own. Some of the things I experienced were: french doors that opened on their own accord, loud banging noises on
my dorm room door, a phone call from the dead; my room-mate witnessed my doppelganger once, and another
time, after I had skipped a certain english class, I found out later that someone, unbeknownest to me, had taken my place during class. The class professor was a real stickler for alphabetical seating. Anyway, the next day when I returned to class, I was asked, "Who was your friend?" to which I replied, "What friend?"
It was explained to me that someone who looked very similar to me had sat in my chair and took notes. I replied that I hadn't asked anyone to do that. My classmate and I were both mystified to say the least! There are too many incidences to list, but I remember each and every one as if it were yesterday. I finally stopped my snooping into the past, when a friend of mine warned me of a dream she had had about me.. and what might happen to me were I to continue my 'ghost busting'. Well, that was all I needed to hear and I stopped immediately.

Re: “What’s the big deal?

I'm reading this after the 1491s aired on the Daily Show. I'm a teacher on a Rez in northern Manitoba, the same lands my father's side of the family calls home. My class and I are fans of the 1491s, and have laughed our way through several of your videos. It all began with a kid coming in and telling me about Slapping Medicine Man and spiralled from there. We watch your guys when we're talking about voice and stories... When we're talking about identity... When we're talking about current events. You come up a lot.

Know that there are a lot of young, indigenous kids watching you on youtube, on APTN, and now the Daily Show. You're showing us possibilities. We've seen what happened when you put cameras in the hands of people from all over. We've watched your TED talk, and we regularly pick up our own cameras, because we have stories to tell, too.

...and now I've found print! Thank you for writing. Thank you. You and the 1491s are a teacher's dream!

Re: “The Exterminators

Cry me a river, what a bunch of libatards... all you people are trying to tell others how to live and what is "right". It must be nice to just live an easy life and judge others off of ignorance and lack of living as a farmer or rancher who's animals you buy at the grocery store - as processed meat. What is sad is the ignorance of the hippie agenda thinking the world is heaven on earth. Try thinking of that next time you eat a burger, piece of chicken, steak, even eggs... you are murdering animals by those acts- or supporting their murder.

That was a good well written article! The cnn story seemed biased. This one seemed the opposite of that.

Re: “What’s the big deal?

I learned about this subject in class just recently. Before learning about the Native-American view I didn't quiet understand what the problem was. I do feel like understand more at least there point of view. With the team Redskins I can see that as racist and Native-Americans do have a point in saying that is raciest. My point of view is that teams like the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Indians or Florida State Seminoles weren't trying to be racist but chose a symbol or icon that they admired in what they represented or stood for. The Seminoles were the only Native-Americans to withstand the U.S. government from controlling them. And knowing that why wouldn't you want to name a team after a group of people who were able to do something so great. Looking at other college teams like Michigan State Spartans they named their team after a group of people who they admired. The Spartans were obviously great warriors and I think teams that have Native-American logos had this kind of thinking when choosing their logos.

Re: “The two David Burgerts

I enjoyed reading this article for more details on him after seeing the story on CNN. Very well written article. Since I am from WV, I wonder what part of the state Chance Chezem has an old family farm in?
