No one outside of Montana has ever heard of Rankin. Sorry.
This from the article:
"Lisa's is at 2004 Sussex Street, one block north of South Avenue, near the mall."
SO Good !!!
Thanks for letting us know. The online version has been corrected to the ZACC Below. Our biggest apologies.
Where is it?
I'm putting on this show AND I did the copy editing on this issue of the Indy. I totally missed that the venue is listed as VFW. It is in fact at the ZACC.
It's actually at the ZACC basement!
With every year that native wild bison are rounded up like livestock and sent to slaughter, wild and diverse genes are lost forever. (These bison are a national treasure. Would people protest if a section of the Washington Monument was knocked off the top every year?) This past season, over 500 of these precious animals were shipped to slaughter by our government and cruelly betrayed in tribal slaughterhouses. Once that travesty had run its course, bison--including pregnant cows and moms with infants--were mercilessly hazed back into Yellowstone for no apparent reason, sometimes forced to run for miles under duress. This costly (taxpayers--it's our $$$), cruel, and ludicrous debacle happens year after year under the Interagency Bison Management Plan, a document driven by livestock politics, not scientific wildlife management. And what for? So Montana ranchers can have priority to public land that belongs to ALL native wildlife first and ALL American citizens second. But Americans are getting savvy to the livestock industry's connection to climate change, resource depletion, animal cruelty, and human health woes.

You'd be surprised at the stuff that comes up when you enter the words "butch trucks" into a Google search.
I agree. I said at the time of the trial that the city would win it because of who the judge was. What should be done now is offer the mayor 5000 dollars for his house to turn it into a new park and when he wont sell it. condem it.
Steve Daines, like John Wayne Zinke, is a phony, hypocritical, blowhard.
How about Sacagawea ?
How about a rotating cast of characters, maybe on several denominations, not just the ten - kind like they did with the states on the back side of the quarter ?
The made fair has been amazing for many years. I just always forget when it is coming up and spend all of my money before this end of the month fling.
Kick domestic cattle and sheep off public lands.
Public-owned wildlands should be for public-owned wildlife, not privately owned, domestic livestock.
As I've said several times before, do a google search and see what happened about 15 or so years ago when the World Bank and/or the IMF demanded that Cochabamba, Bolivia privatize its water system. It was a disaster !
Expand Yellowstone park.
We had a feeling that since the judge had supported Engan for mayor, she would also support the city in this matter. Nothing has changed since the last condemnation except the ownership of Mountain Water. The city has a hard enough time just keeping the streets cleared of snow and fixing potholes. Running a water company isn't an essential service of government. What other business can we condemn and take over?
Thanks. We have made the correction to our online story.
Derek is butch trucks' nephew... A simple Google search would have uncovered this.
And the biggest problem with a "not guilty" verdict is that the community at large does not understand the difference between "not guilty" from lack of evidence and "innocent" because the person didn't do the crime. Of course the criminal and his/her defense attorney will scream to the rooftops about their innocence and damn the accuser for lying which of course then means more victims will not come forward when they are attacked. Thus perpetuating the vicious circle in which this utterly horrid crime is able to be continually perpetrated by a small subset of individuals a literally almost no risk of arrest and punishment because of this mindset that the word of the victim "isn't enough evidence to send the attacker to prison!"
If only these jurors understood that someone who does this more than likely has done this to others in the past, and if set free, will continue to do it to more people in the future, especially since this jury has just given them the green light by telling them that what they did wasn't a crime at all! Home free!
And this jury just told all the future victims of this young man don't bother to report since we won't believe you. Your word isn't good enough. Bruises aren't enough either. You didn't act "right". I don't know how a rape victim is supposed to act but apparently you didn't get it right so to hell with you.
