Re: “Shush up already

It doesn't seem to matter where you are, the new people are exceptionally loud nowadays. They seem to like to form long lines and wait for things while they are being loud as well....I don't get it?

Re: “Not very sporting

Not only setting it and baiting it...but walking away from it. Who, other than a trapper, walks away from a loaded weapon and leaves it unattended for 24 or 48 hours...or longer?

Re: “Plucked over

Thanks a lot, this really is a truly awsome article! Thanks for the sharing, I also found a useful service for forms filling. I've found some decent tutorials on how to fill Freddie Mac 1126 out online here

Re: “Running up the score

January 2013 comment by Pat Williams:

UM "recruited thugs for its football team.”

Here's an idea to improve Griz football and the community while driving down costs at the same time:

Stop recruiting thugs
Stop recruiting from CA

Of course, when someone like Williams comes along and tells it like it is we get all up in arms and threaten to take his job away, as was done.

No wonder nothing changes - why would you want to discuss the problems when you get that kind of backlash?

So we'll just see the same problems again. Happens all the time when you sweep things under the rug.

Re: “Krakauer

Kraukauer already disparaged Bozeman and their Greg Mortenson for his own benefit. Is he done doing the same to Missoula now?

I hope so.

Re: “Pop culture

Owners "needed a bit of coaxing."

That's alarming.

New ideas keep you at the forefront of business. Doing things as we've always done ensures others will pass you by.

We'll see how owners react to new ideas in the future. Imagine if they passed on this'd be business as usual.

(but isn't it that anyways?)

Re: “Best Apartment Rental Agency

Grizzly pm??? If you're perfect, I'm sure they're fine. my Mom was coming out of a very bad relationship and really needed to find a place to rent. Her ex had taken his name off all their credit cards leaving her with the entire debt. she was filing for bankruptcy. The first thing GPM did was check her credit, then slam, they denied her without talking to her or going any further in the process. Apparently this is what they do these days. Her credit was near perfect before the ex, and she was trying to get it back, but they don't care. You can be reliable in every way, but if your credit's bad, don't bother to apply...if your kids won't take you (hers did), live on the streets!

Re: “A place to walk

Montana, you have multi use trail users and you are the last state to create workability with all the user groups on your trail system. I have now lived in Utah, Idaho, and Montana, with Montana being the least able to adapt to the trail use issues, which if you do not come up with solutions for ALL, it is going to leave your great state in the dark ages, and you think that is smart it is not.
I am a trail runner first in my heart, mountain biker 2nd and horse lover, I cannot afford a horse but I go to Farms and help horse owners. The single track mountain trails are here to be enjoyed by all three. Certain trails will work better for different groups, based on steepness and switch backs and trailheads and this needs to be assessed. When I lived in Missoula, Woods Gulch was one of the only routes safe to exit an area safely and in time if I was caught in that area in bad weather, lack of fuel or technical issues. The trail needs work, it is eroded but can accommodate hikers and bikers, mostly.

When I lived in Salt Lake City we had even numbered days for bikers, odd numbered days for dogs and hikers, this allowed multiple user groups to use trails in populated areas. The Rattlesnake is close to a populated area. Also the TNR mountain bike groups in Missoula, mostly made of of men can help curb the younger downhill mountain bike crew who is really the age demographic that is blowing it and speeding on trails. It is a gender and age and technical ability issue, not a biker vs hiker issue. I left Montana, partly because the trail system is not a priority or seen as the rescources it truely is. Trails are a passion for me, I have been on them in Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Idaho, I truely hope Montana figures out in time that is a need of a trails system over haul for ALL.
Sincerely, Jennifer Kuhlmann , Now in Sun Valley, Idaho enjoying single track trails.

Re: “Shared nature

"open space protection takes time. Until Missoula sees trail growth to match its population"

Can "loved to death" be fixed?

Can the carrying capacity of this valley and region handle the pace of growth we are experiencing now?

If you've been around longer than twenty years, and you are not a landlord or a real estate speculator, Missoula is fucked!

7.5 billion people on this planet and growing....and Missoula is the trendy place to be....

Re: “Out of the rubble

That's the problem. Too few get it. Too few get Missoula; but for some reason too many want to be here. And that is why Missoula is on a fast track to Anywhere USA.

Re: “Sneaky rider

Let's not forget, our own Senator Tester was the first to use a must pass rider to delist an endangered species, the wolf. His precedent is going viral of course. Who needs democratic process when you need to get re-elected. Tester is blind to ecology or conservation, yet he boldly jumps in the deep end introducing radical policy changes that have terrible implications. His lack of appreciation for wild nature is rivalled only by his disdain of democratic process.
