Good post Joane. Wuerthner is an embarrassment. A self aggrandizing, self described expert. I hope he's not sucking the teat of the US taxpayer like the vast majority of the "experts" who write into the IR with their takeson logging. Why would Lois Olson know anything about fo…

LOL, smells like a good time for a lawsuit. Cha-ching.

Forbids parking between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM for 2" of snow? I completely get forbidding parking from say 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM to give the plows a chance to clear the roads but forbidding parking during business hours for 2" of snow? Pardon me for suggesting it but this commission n…

The last Republican was run out of Helena about 18 months ago. Good riddance.
