I've been working with the Millers for over a year now, ever since they generously offered to board my rescue horse. In that time they've been patient with me and my horse and I've had the chance to observe all the different ways they work to make their ranch an asset to the community, from hosting therapy sessions for youth and adults, to providing youngsters with an opportunity to get to know horses and learn what many Montanan's know to be the invaluable lessons of horsemanship. They've put people up during the fires and took on horses that were at the forefront of the inferno outside Lolo. They also made their lease land available as a staging ground for firefighters as well, taking on several added expenses as a matter of course.
Why the county has continued on this track is confounding and McCubbin's explanation of his continued prosecution rings false. In pursuit of the letter of the law, the county continues to miss it's spirit. Maybe these county attorneys need to spend a little more time getting to know the local businesses they represent as public officials so that, when they go for the throats of small businesses and community members, it will impact them, as it does the rest of us.
