A round on me

Posted on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 at 4:14 PM

Good news: The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee recently unanimously passed the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. I don’t always agree with Sen. Baucus, but I’m on board for this one.

As the world gets more noisy and crowded, it is important to protect perfect places like the Rocky Mountain Front forever. There is no place like it left in the world. We are the caretakers of that place, and it’s our job to keep it whole.

We also know that the more rare a thing is, the more valuable it becomes.  With permanent protection, the Front can remain a geographic diamond for all Americans to cherish and experience with their eyes and ears and legs and lungs. And it won’t hurt that those people will stay a night or two at the Stage Stop in Choteau, or get a burger at the Buckhorn in Augusta.

We need to protect the Rocky Mountain Front for our hearts. Fortunately, our brains can come along without hesitation.

I am sending this letter to Rep. Daines, whose help we will need after the Act passes the full Senate. Daines not only should support this legislation, he should introduce it in the House.

Please call him to ask him to do that for all of us. And when the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act becomes law, let’s all go up to the Buckhorn and have a party. I will buy a round, and I hope it breaks the bank.
