Re: “It's Brazil on Broadway at Imagine Nation Brewing

I love the variety of events & music at Imagine Nation.
Also: Fans of Brazilian music (and tunes of other areas of the region) may also want to head to the second night of Jazzoula, Missoula's Community Jazz Festival coming up April 17-21.
Canta Brasil, featuring Magda Chaney vocals, Antonio (or Pedro?) percussion, David Horgan guitar and more.... will perform Tuesday April 18 around 8:00pm at Jazzoula. (Times are approximate! Music starts 6:30pm. Doors open at 6 pm for food & drink.) Tickets at Rockin Rudys 542-0077 or at the door, St Anthony Parish Center on Woodford at Tremont. 217 Tremont in that great big hall that becomes a nightclub.
Full bar & food available. $10 students/seniors. $12 public. Full-festival 5-night pass is only $30/$25.

Re: “Turning over new leaves at Garden City Compost

What's almost as sad as how bad of a deal this was for taxpayers is how little the local press has covered it. I wrote about it in November on my site, pointing out that the city paid $3 million for this private business, and when they expect it to lose money.

Why will it lose money?

Simple - the city will eliminate the compost bagging portion of the business, as well as the 50-60% of revenues that created for the business.

Why is the city getting into this business anyways?

They can't even fix our roads.

Perhaps if they would have spent that $3 million on our roads that would not be the case, but they chose to buy a private business.

This at a time when your taxes have gone up 95% over the past 12 years.

Why did the City Council sign-off on this?

And why can't the city get it's ducks all in a row? November to April is 6 months. That's six months that they had to get this business up and going, but they can't even get a cash register?

I'll remind you that none of this is new.

When the city recently voted on the budget for the new $42 million parks complex they didn't even allocate enough money to run the place.

That's your city government in action, folks.

Sick of it? Me too. It's time for a change.…

Re: “Do we get the politics we want when we vote insiders out and outsiders in?

I love Rob Quist's music, have for a long time. Politically, he sounds a lot like Amanda Curtis. He has to sing from the Democratic songbook, I doubt that will resonate with Montanans.

Re: “Investigation gives Elsie Arntzen's claims an 'F' — for 'False'

Fixed. My wife and I were told by the principal herself they have to as the answer as to why our child comes home with completed work from school that she cannot do at home when we homeschool quiz her ourselves.

We took our child put of public school because they were doing the work for our child.

Don't believe any investigation that would turn out a result that would prove negligence on behalf of the school system or even the court system because it would open the doors for truth. The lawsuits. Then criminal prosecutions. God on my knows how many kids would have to be left back and do grades over.

Do you people actually believe their lies?

Cover ups is all it is. Poor woman told the truth about a majority crooked liars and the result? Like they would actually admit anything?

We know the truth because we caught them ourselves.

Re: “O Dems, where art thou? Quist campaign still running under the national radar.

Did you know the Montana Democratic Party had $143,000 cash on hand at the beginning of March?

Well...why aren't they giving any of that to Quist?

Here's another one - the Montana Democratic Party transferred $25,000 to the DNC in February, just weeks before they knew they'd be conducting a special election campaign.

Why'd they do that?

Why are we giving money to the DNC and what is it being used for?

Am I the only one that feels that money should be left in Montana for Montana politicians to use?

Thank you for writing this article, Lucia. The self-entitlement of so many dog owners is appalling.

Elsie Arntzen is more interested in seeing her name in lights than she is making sure that the students of this State receive the best possible education... enough of the hyperbole and get on with being a good steward of OPI. No more nonsense!

Re: “There's a reason they call them land 'lords'

In most cases, landlords are simply middle class persons that have foregone faraway vacations, frequent dinners out, expensive clothes, new cars and other luxuries in order to save money to invest for retirement and a bit of security. Many aren't comfortable with the swings of the stock market or don't have government pensions that ARE "guaranteed by the power of the state". It has also become an increasingly difficult investment, as property taxes have increased dramatically in the past decade. Also, one does not have the privilege in the choice of renters as one has to be careful not to discriminate which often necessitates paying a property manager to help properly navigate things. Take care all.

Indy editors : Ditch this dingbat. Or at least edit out all the F-worlds. Is this some pre-adolescent brat that's discovered a new way to be offensive ? The f-words contribute absolutely nothing to, in fact detract from, what may or may not be decent recipes.

Re: “Who'll pay, and how much, for Montana's coming budget cuts

Follow the money and when it reaches a lawyer look deep. Report it to the ODC. Save America by reporting corruption. Where they're corruption there's a lawyer. All that money that was being spent is our money. The peoples money. The lawyers are stealing it. What goes into the programs they say it goes into is BS.
SERIOUSLY. Save America by calling the FBI on everyone. Drain the Swamp.

Re: “There's a reason they call them land 'lords'

All contracts should be honored. If an issue arises between landlord and tenant it should be a civil matter. Since the government has overstepped it's bounds and and took the landlords authority away from him by allowing deadbeats to remain in and damage peoples investments, as Paul said, sometimes for 3 months without rent being paid, then I would have to say that the same government should damn well be the debt collectors for the landlords they have wronged.

What part of "breach of contract" do you not understand???

Re: “Activists employ 'necessity' strategy in pipeline trials

I wonder just how many gallons of that terrible oil was burned taking the useless idiots to the 4 states to upset commerce over bogus global warming bull crap! Not to mention how much fuel they wasted keeping warm and cooking. I don't believe there is any mountain of stupidity that is too high to climb for the save the earth group. Hope the man spends all 10 years in prison with a homosexual cell mate named Bubba.

Re: “Who'll pay, and how much, for Montana's coming budget cuts

Jeezus H.! MT is getting more and more like Idaho, and look where idaho has gone : anywhere from 40-something to dead last out of the 50 states in virtually every category of spending on human/social services, education, transportation, etc. And with that comes the shitty, low paying jobs, with few if any benefits - A connection that the morons in the idaho legislature, and apparently Montana's, haven't made.

The author of an op-ed in the Idaho Falls paper a couple weeks ago quoted Mark Twain, saying, "No man's life, liberty or property are safe when the legislature is in session." How true !

Re: “John Hoyt's name removed from Wash-Griz Stadium

I hear that when you give a million dollars for the field field to be named in memory of a life long donor, you should be pacified with 9" x 12" plaque and hung on some obscure wall. Until the foundation thinks it can sell that wall space... or Denny Washington has another bout of insecurity and demands it be taken down.

Re: “John Hoyt's name removed from Wash-Griz Stadium

Enrollment numbers prove that parents aren't willing to trust the University of Montana with their youths nor their monies.

If a million dollars can't buy you a few gallons of paint and recognition for 50 years of support and numerous other large dollar donations, a $100,000 certainly won't buy an education.

Given any opportunity they'll sell your student out, just like they did the memory of John Hoyt.

Maybe a refund is in order to Cliff Edwards who thought enough of his friend to anonymously give a million dollars so that John would be remembered... the check's cashed, the foundation has forgot.

Re: “Standing Rock and the lessons of Andrew Jackson

"nonviolent water protectors" ? Somehow seeing people standing on a burned out truck and blocking access on a state or federal highway does not seem so peaceful. And look at all of the trash that was left behind when they were gone. Water Keepers is not how I would describe these people.
