STREET TALK

by Cathrine L. Walters

Asked outside of Butterfly Herbs on Tuesday morning.

Q:

An elaborate hoax over the weekend announced a free concert sponsored by recently shuttered businesses Smurfit-Stone and Macy’s. What’s the best prank you’ve ever pulled? Follow-up: Anonymous—and angry—displaced workers allegedly staged the hoax to bring attention to the struggle between wealthy corporations and the work force. What would you do to raise awareness of our local workers?

Eric Mullen: My senior year we released four sheep on campus and painted numbers 1, 2, 3 and 5 on them. It took them two days to figure it out. Labor on this: We should have a job fair with hiring clinics to empower those who are out of work.

Anne Fay: One year I told my kids the Easter Bunny wasn’t coming, that he got caught in a bunny trap. I thought it was funny but they just cried. I misjudged my audience. Like the bunny-suit guy: I’d recognize those who don’t like their jobs but stay and work them anyway. They should be honored for their good work ethic.

Carol Sharp: I called my husband’s boss and told him I was Pizza Hut and had 250 pizzas ready to be delivered and that he needed to pay for it. He almost did! I can be very convincing. Time for some cold showers, people: I think we should celebrate folks who have jobs. I’m from Hot Springs where only 25 percent of people work and the rest are on assistance. Bekah Wolfe: I guess I played one on my high school—they handed out prom dress restrictions and I did everything they said we couldn’t do. It was black leather and leopard print, had a midriff, was super short and super tight with a slit all the way up to my waist. Little effort on the sign, please: There should be a downtown street dance where they shut down Higgins Avenue, and all local musicians come out and play, and we hold signs that say, “It sucks to be laid off!”

Reviewing the reviewer Unlike Andy Smetanka, I felt Alice in Wonderland was not that bad (see “In a hole,” March 11, 2010). In fact, I loved it! Nor was I disappointed with Tim Burton’s directorial choices. I don’t claim to be an expert on Burton, but I have seen Sleepy Hollow, and Alice, luckily, was not as bloody or gothic as that film. Nor was it as morbid as Corpse Bride—that was aided by the fact that it wasn’t in that weird, stop-motion animation medium that I feel always lends itself to creepiness. Alice had a very low creep-factor, less than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which wasn’t too bad, and not nearly as creepy as Edward Scissorhands. I can see what Smetanka means about Johnny Depp playing the “hambone” recently with the Pirates trilogy and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, not to mention Ed Wood, and I was leery of his character for this reason. But luckily, the character of Alice was so strong that she held her own against the Mad Hatter, who luckily didn’t take over the film, even with his too modern, silly dance at the end. I was hoping for something else, like a modified grand waltz or anything better than what it was. This was the only part of the film that made me uncomfortable, almost as if it were creepy. The fact that it is a film about a wellknown story is what held it together for me. I would even have enjoyed it were it not in 3-D, the style of which seemed to fascinate Smetanka more than the story. That’s unfortunate based on the fact that the medium we use to tell stories will always evolve and change with technology—from the oral tradition to writing stories down on stone, paper or Macbooks. The story itself, even if elaborated on or inflated, that’s what remains constant. But let’s talk about the 3-D for a bit. It was not quite as visually impressive as Coraline. I felt that filmmaker Henry Selik made more use of the 3-D medium than Burton. Alice had a darker tone visually, but that was nice after the techno-color Disney version of Alice that we all grew up with. Alice’s themes are darker than I had ever known, having not (yet) read Lewis Carroll’s book. This story is about battle just as much as it’s about journey and selfdiscovery and owning one’s life choices, so the dark tone fit. Too many 3-D special effects for the sake of effects would have cheapened it, so I feel Burton made a good call there. I will say this about the ending credits: I really thought the fern on the bottom left was growing out from the screen. It was vivid and tactile. The Cheshire cat, too, was very well done.

It’s too bad that Smetanka was so disappointed by it, but luckily Burton could probably give a rat’s you-know-what about what either of us thinks, which is why he’s able to make such creative films. Bravo. Unfortunately, Smetanka spent so little time actually reviewing the film that he missed the wonderful female characters of the white queen and red queen, nor did he give a nod to Alice herself. Better luck next time Smetanka. Erin Schmiel Missoula

is the “This shortest questionnaire since George Washington asked Thomas Jefferson to conduct the very first census in 1790!

No census conspiracy I recently had a conversation with a local person regarding the 2010 census forms. The person said he was “disinclined to fill it out” because of the information it asked for and the likelihood of his information being shared in unauthorized ways and unauthorized places. To set the record straight: The 2010 census only asks 10 questions. These include name, sex, date of birth and whether you own or rent. This is the shortest questionnaire since George Washington asked Thomas Jefferson to conduct the very first census in 1790! The 2010 census form does not ask your social security number, your income, any bank information or about your hobbies, interests, religion or occupation. Most of the questions could be answered by your neighbors or close friends. There are strict laws in place to keep any information you give in our census form confidential. Title 13 of the U.S.

Code protects the confidentiality of all your information, and violating that law is a crime with severe penalties. Your census information isn’t shared with other federal agencies. By law, the U.S. Census Bureau cannot share respondent’s answers with anyone—not the IRS, not the FBI, not the CIA and not with any other government agency. You can feel secure in knowing the census form is both brief and entirely confidential. The very good news is that by filling out and returning your census form, you are affecting how our community receives funding for the next 10 years, from funding for things like senior centers and flu shot distribution and educational needs, to highway planning and construction. It is estimated that for each Montanan that doesn’t get counted our state could lose over $4,000 of funding over the next 10 years. Filling out your census form is a very easy way to help yourself and your neighbors. For more information on the 2010 census I would encourage you to visit the census website at http://2010census.gov. Dale Woolhiser Board Member Missoula Community Foundation Missoula

Congrats on collaboration My congratulations go out to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack for taking the initiative to show his support for Sen. Jon Tester’s Forest Jobs and Recreation Act. With the increasing awareness of everyone’s need to cooperate and collaborate with each other along with my own support for the bill, I am pleased to see that these two prominent decision makers have reached a consensus with one another. As a forestry student in Missoula studying operations and restoration, I am exposed to the economic reality and the need to reopen lumber mills. I am in complete support of wilderness and believe that this bill will be extremely effective at incorporating these two opposites. The bill is groundbreaking and well thought out through its use of post-project monitoring, yet like any bill it will take vast amounts of time and money to accomplish. Like anything at the governmental level, it takes willingness to put oneself out there, and I’d like to thank Secretary Vilsack for coming to Montana to show his support for this great collaboration effort.

After receiving a tip from a Montana Rail Link crew, Missoula sheriff’s deputies discover around 20 possibly stolen bicycles stashed down a steep embankment off the railroad tracks near Buckhorse Bridge. Officers use ropes to recover the bikes but have a difficult time locating their owners because of a lack of reported serial numbers.

• Thursday, March 18 U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy approves an unprecedented settlement requiring the Bureau of Land Management to suspend 61 oil and gas leases across Montana within 90 days so it can gauge how oil field activities, like drilling and natural gas venting, contribute to climate change.

• Friday, March 19 Two teenagers assault a corrections officer, steal her keys and escape from the Ravalli County Juvenile Detention Center, where they were being held for various charges, including allegedly bringing loaded guns to school. After seven hours on the lam, the two are spotted by a citizen and apprehended by authorities.

• Saturday, March 20 Bargain hunters stream into the first floor of the University of Montana parking garage for the dubiously dubbed “World’s Largest Garage Sale.” Some 40 vendors pay $20 for two parking spaces and hock everything from holiday decorations and baby clothes to a 2005 Chevy Cobalt.

• Sunday, March 21 The Missoula Police Department charges Jesse James Kale Brown with the Saturday evening robbery of Missoula’s Sweetheart Bakery. A witness’ description of the suspect and his vehicle aids the investigation and Brown is placed in custody at the Missoula County Detention Facility on a $50,000 bond.

• Monday, March 22 Missoula’s Joslyn Tinkle, a freshman forward on Stanford University’s women’s basketball team and the daughter of Griz basketball coach Wayne Tinkle, scores seven points as the top-seeded Cardinal routs Iowa 96—67 in the second round of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.

• Tuesday, March 23 The same anonymous group that staged an elaborate free concert hoax over the weekend explains its motives in an e-mail to local media. The group hopes the stunt—which announced a fake “farewell” show sponsored by Macy’s and Smurfit-Stone—will spark a “community-wide conversation about how we are organizing ourselves…in an uncertain time.”

Members of Health Care for America Now and Montana Change That Works took to the sidewalk in front of U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg’s Missoula office Monday afternoon after the Montana Republican voted against the health care reform bill. The measure, which constitutes the largest expansion of federal health care guarantees in more than 40 years, passed the House of Representatives late Sunday night with no Republican support.

UM President plays rock star When you’re the head cheese at a university of 14,322 students and some 2,200 employees, you’d better be able to think on your feet. University of Montana President George Dennison did just that last Thursday night when things went haywire during his karaoke performance at a fundraiser in the University Center. After witnessing several acts ranging from bagpipes to belly dancing, the hundred or so spectators welcomed Dennison to the stage with a healthy round of applause. If the crowd was a bit skimpy, it was only because the other 14,222 students were in front of a television somewhere, watching the men’s basketball team battle it out with New Mexico in the NCAA tournament. But the audience was boisterous and enthusiastic as they welcomed their leader as the last act of the evening. Dennison claimed before the performance that he never really gets stage fright. “I speak to groups all the time,” he said. But what about singing?

“It’s not much different than giving a speech,” he said, “as long as I know what I’m doing.” Given the widely published photo of Dennison brandishing a Fender Stratocaster nearly 50 years ago, it’s a safe assumption the man knows his way around a stage. After thanking the organizers for helping raise funds for Doctors Without Borders, Dennison readied himself while the music for Ray Charles’ “I Can’t Stop Loving You” wafted from the speakers. He started singing, but struggled to find the key. After a few seconds, he asked to start over. The sound guy obliged, starting the track again. But again, the erstwhile rock ’n’ roller foundered, unable to find the right note. “Is Tyler still here? Can I borrow your guitar?” Dennison asked. Aspiring country artist Tyler Barnham, who’d performed earlier, delivered his black acoustic to the struggling singer. A stool was brought onstage, and Dennison began strumming the out-of-tune guitar, launching into the song in a comfortable key. He sang it with gusto, finally captivating the crowd. He even played an encore. Bob Wire

Bitterroot Stoking the fire Tempers once again flared between Ravalli County officials and property rights activists in the Bitterroot last week, this time over updates to wildland urban interface (WUI) maps intended to better protect outlying homes during wildfire season. County commissioners and the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) will discuss the county’s proposed adoption of the maps—as mandated by state law passed last year— on April 5. But skeptics on the right have launched a pre-emptive strike against the proposal, claiming it constitutes a power-grab by local government seeking to open a “back door” for zoning regulation. Suzy Foss, a member of Citizens for Property Rights and a current candidate for county commission, expresses concern about the county extending WUI coverage to thousands of acres of private property. By placing those acres in the WUI, Foss argues the county undermines the state’s emphasis on clearing forest debris on public lands. “When they put all that private property into

the WUI, they totally took away the whole intent,” Foss says, “which was to give the Forest Service the opportunity to make this valley safer.” But Bruce Suenram, the DNRC’s deputy chief of fire preparedness, says the inclusion of private property in state WUI maps is common because property bordering forested public land is threatened by wildfire. “The WUI is where wildland meets the homes,” Suenram says. “So it almost has to include private property.” Ravalli County Commissioner Jim Rokosh refutes the accusations that his office is using the WUI maps in any capacity other than protecting rural citizens and volunteer firefighters. The proposal is not some zoning conspiracy, he says, but rather an attempt to define the exact boundaries of the WUI. Only then can the DNRC and county decide how to prioritize protection efforts in the Bitterroot. “It’s all really about increasing safety, protection of property values and providing additional resources beyond local tax dollars to help get the job done on private lands,” Rokosh says. And, Rokosh adds, with a potentially nasty fire season looming, the sooner those maps are adopted the better. Alex Sakariassen

Agriculture The beet goes on Sugar beets make for a pretty sweet industry in Montana. In 2008, it raked in $41 million, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture figures, and beets were used in everything from Flathead Distillery Vodka to nationally marketed sugar. But an ongoing court case relating to the environmental impacts of genetically modified sugar beets has put the industry’s future in question. The vast majority of Montana beets are planted with Monsanto Co.’s genetically modified Roundup Ready seeds, which make weed control easier for farmers but are contentious for their potential to cross pollinate with natural chard and table beet plants during seed production. On March 16, plaintiffs were denied an injunction in federal court that would have banned Roundup Ready beets for the 2010 season. In his order, Northern California District Judge Jeffrey White cited multiple reasons for his ruling, including economic hardships and job

losses in the farming industry, as well as an overall increase in the price of sugar. But his decision won’t be the last word on the issue. “He hasn’t ruled out a future injunction,” says Mathew Dillon of the Organic Seed Alliance, one of the plaintiffs in the case. “We have high hopes that there will be an injunction this summer.”

Many Montana sugar beet producers and a spokesman for the American Sugarbeet Growers Association (ASGA) declined to comment on the case because litigation is ongoing. Meanwhile, the Sugar Industry Biotech Council, which represents the ASGA, calls Roundup Ready beets vital for helping farmers protect crop yields, lessen environmental impacts and maintain a “consistent, uniform supply of sugar for North American consumers,” according to its website. But not all farmers are accepting of the technology. Jonda Crosby of the Montana-based Alternative Energy Resources Organization says some farmers are wary of the potential for Monsanto to gain a monopoly over sugar beets as they have with other crops. “Do we want sugar beets to go the way of corn and soybeans?” asks Crosby. “Farmers are increasingly concerned about the integrity of the seed they rely on in the face of genetic engineering, since many consumers demand food products that are free of biotechnology material.” Kyle Lehman

Economy Pyramid scheme popped A pyramid scheme shut down by Montana regulators earlier this month shows how a rocky financial landscape pushes people to do desperate things. “Pyramid schemes tend to peak during tough economic times,” says Zan Deery of the Better Business Bureau. “They prey on peoples’ desperation, most definitely.” According to the state auditor’s office, Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM) bilked $1.8 million from 1,295 Montana residents, including several in the Missoula area, between July 2006 and June 2009. The Lexington, Ky.-based company, which still operates in several states, claims that a $299 membership fee buys you lowsweat, high-yield income opportunities. According to the company’s website, fee-paying sales reps earn money when friends, family members or acquaintances use discounted products or services provided by company partners like Dish Network, Travelocity, General Electric and The Home Depot. “Becoming an FHTM Independent Representative can put you on the road to financial freedom today,” the website states. “Be part of an industry that allows an entrepreneur like you to enjoy the flexibility that comes with owning your own business and the results of your hard work.” The auditor’s office says the pitch is bunk, and on March 4 issued a cease and desist order to halt the company’s Montana operations. “From our understanding, you sign up and get discounts from Dish, Home Depot,” says Jackie Boyle, a state auditor’s office spokesperson. “All of those companies have said, ‘We have no arrangement with them.’” FHTM attorney Jason Baker referred questions to a statement posted on its website, which acknowledges the investigation and directs sales reps in the state to refrain from doing business until the case is resolved. The state will hold an administrative hearing to determine whether FHTM is guilty of violating state law. If so, it faces a fine of $10,000 for each of the 1,295 alleged offenses. Deery says as the economy lingers in the doldrums and people continue struggling to pay the bills, schemes like this will successfully lure the financially vulnerable with promises of fast cash. “It all ends up being smoke and mirrors,” she says. “These things operate based on an illusion.” Jessica Mayrer

Times the Dave Matthews Band plans to play a concert in Missoula anytime soon. An elaborate hoax tried to convince the city otherwise this weekend, plastering campus and the downtown with fliers advertising a farewell Missoula show hosted by Macy’s and Smurfit-Stone.

etc.

Missoula’s never been short on champions. We’re not talking about the usual Griz variety, but rather the social-justice kind—those who steadfastly support a cause and defend sacred ground when others have either moved on or never bothered to engage in the good fight. Over the last week, two examples stood out. We were pleasantly surprised Monday night when the Missoula City Council’s now-familiar debate over a proposed DUI ordinance was met not with silence but with criticism. Niki Zupanic, public policy director with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), stood before the council and warned that, by making refusal of drug or alcohol testing a misdemeanor, it’s poised to criminalize people for exerting their constitutional rights. Finally. Maybe we missed something, but aside from a handful of city gadflies we hadn’t seen anyone take a firm stand on what we feel is some pretty murky civil liberties territory. Zupanic built her argument around the protection against unreasonable search and seizure guaranteed to every American citizen under the Fourth Amendment. Slapping a $300 fine on anyone refusing to surrender breath or blood seems like a clear enough violation. “Refusal to waive a constitutional right should not be treated as a criminal act,” Zupanic told City Council. “This ordinance removes the presumption of innocence.” Council kicked the ordinance back to committee for more discussion, and that’s a good thing. While we’re all for creative efforts to curb DUIs, this ordinance is the wrong solution for exactly the reasons Zupanic detailed. Before Zupanic’s remarks, another stand by local activists garnered statewide attention. We’re referring, of course, to the group affectionately known as the Otter Creek Five, those plucky University of Montana students who hosted a sit-in at the Land Board’s vote to lease Otter Creek coal tracts to Arch Coal. The state approved the $85.8 million deal, but not before the members of Northern Rockies Rising Tide succeeded in drawing much needed attention to the debate. “It was an absolute success, even though the tracts got leased,” said optimistic protester Shelby Cunliffe the day after she and her cohorts were arrested for the Helena demonstration. “The public will still be able to be involved, there will be lots of discussion about it. It’ll take years to process, and maybe it won’t end up happening.” Many have criticized the Land Board’s Otter Creek decisions over the last few months—years, even—and disappointedly watched as the land was consistently offered up to the highest bidder. Perhaps the sit-in will generate a different result in the long run. And even if it doesn’t, we take some solace in knowing another local champion may step up next.

Wasted wreckage High-profile demolitions raise reclamation issues by Alex Sakariassen

A few weeks after salvaging 35,000 board feet of lumber from the now-flattened St. Francis Xavier School in Missoula, Gary Delp of Heritage Timber stands on the corner of Front and Pattee eyeing the demolition of the former First Interstate Bank building. Jumbles of old brick and twisted steel lie beneath exposed office rooms and hallways. Thick timber beams and splintered flooring jut out at all angles like stray hairs. Delp tries to put a rough value on some of the material. Depending on the condition of those wood beams, he says, one 20-foot-long section could go for maybe $150 retail. By his count there’s at least several thousand dollars in potential profit just sitting in the wreckage. But anyone who has stopped to watch the jaws of the demolition crane tear into the sides of the 102-year-old building can guess where most of that material is destined to end up: the Missoula landfill. “There’s a pretty good market here for reclaimed materials,” Delp says. “There are lots of people that want to use them, which makes it doubly sad when I see these beautiful 3-by-12 floor joists in that bank building or, in the old [Xavier] school, 25-foot 2by-13s cut out of old-growth trees that we don’t have anymore. Toothpicks to the dump, not even recycled. It kills me ’cause you can’t get that wood anymore.” Since 1994, Delp has specialized in salvaging reusable lumber from demolition sites in western Montana. And Heritage Timber has seen some major successes in that time, like the dismantling of three buildings at the old Champion Mill site along the Clark Fork River. Delp remembers taking only one, maybe two truckloads of waste to the landfill during the entire project. But while salvage efforts are becoming more common in Missoula, Delp and others note a troubling number of high-profile projects—the First Interstate Bank removal included—that continue to defy the profitable and environmentally conscious trend. “The way I understand it, 100 years ago when we had a structure that needed to go away, people would take it apart, save everything that was in there, straighten out the nails,” says Lauren Varney, Home Resource co-founder and deconstruction coordinator. “We know we were at one point wise enough to do it. But we came up with all these fantastic machines that can do it super quickly and make it easy.” Delp and Varney don’t place the blame for the waste on individual contractors. Their businesses have for years relied on partnerships with local construction companies to save material otherwise designated trash. They feel the source of the problem instead lies in common misconcep-

tions about the safety and profitability of dismantling buildings. “People just have it in their heads that because someone’s in a big excavator and removed from the building that they’re safer,” Delp says. “My opinion is that if they built the building by hand, it can be taken down by hand.” Contractors don’t argue Delp’s point. Steve Hall with Gordon Construction, the general contractor on the bank demolition, says recycling efforts have to pay for themselves to even be considered. He adds the final decision isn’t even up to contractors

knock any down, I could care less. Knocking something down is just an annoying thing we have to do before we can build something.” But Hall stands by the First Interstate Bank demolition. Structural instability made taking the building down piece-bypiece impossible, he says. Reclaiming flooring or bricks might well have resulted in a cave-in, damaging either the Millennium Building or adjacent power lines. “Everybody walking down the street thinks they know how to do it,” Hall says. “You know what? Anybody who wants to

but rather the property owners funding each project. “We’re hired by the owners and we’re given our marching orders by the owners,” Hall says. “Typically what they’ll do is say, ‘What are our options here?’ and we’ll spell out their options. I haven’t seen any yet that will say, ‘I’ll spend $4 of my money to get $1 for salvaging something.’” Dave Maurer, owner of Maurer Construction LLC, says he emphasizes deconstruction to property owners whenever feasible, as in the case of the St. Francis Xavier project. Maurer allowed Delp to spend six weeks stripping the building of roof beams and maple flooring before calling in the wreckers—though Delp maintains he could have salvaged more. Maurer also let Varney haul away 10 truckloads of brick to be cleaned and resold by Home Resource. To Maurer, it’s not a fixation on demolition that leads to wasted material. It’s profit margins, safety and to some degree timelines. “As large contractors, we build buildings for a living,” Maurer says. “Whether I

look at a set of plans and actually knows the business, I’m happy to sit with them. At some point they’ll see the light and they’ll know why we’re doing what we’re doing.” The excuse doesn’t sit well with Varney or Delp. Varney says that during a recent trip to the dump, he watched a truck discard a load of material from the bank project. He still has one of the bricks sitting in his vehicle—not that one or two bricks snagged from the landfill makes a difference, he says. Delp simply believes deconstruction makes sense. He sees interest mounting in Missoula, and hasn’t seen any slump in demand for reclaimed wood. But staring up from Front Street, his frustration builds. Why spend $160 on dump fees for a truckload of waste when so much of the material can be turned around for profit? “From a dollars-and-sense standpoint, if time is not an issue there’s just no reason not to,” Delp says. “You save money, you save resources.” asakariassen@missoulanews.com

Only moments before I began writing this column President Barack Obama signed the much-vaunted health care bill into law. Seven minutes later, attorneys general from 13 states filed suit to halt what they contend is the measure’s unconstitutional mandate, which forces individuals to buy health insurance. The flood of competing sound bites aside, the bill’s passage is obviously not the end of a health care debate that has raged for more than a year already. In fact, the games have just begun. You’d have to be living in a cave not to notice the total euphoria being beamed across the planet by the White House and congressional Democrats over the narrow passage of the Senate version of the health care bill. If you take the press statements at face value, which is kind of hard to do if you know anything about the bill, this is the greatest thing since, well, since just about forever. At least that’s the take coming from the Democrats who, after all, were the only ones to vote for the measure (and not even all of them did that). If you give the other perspective any credence, the picture is quite a bit different. Republicans say it will bust the budget, criminalize those who don’t want to buy health insurance, take away our health care choices, and eventually result in government deciding who gets what in the way of care. The “Don’t Tread on Me” Tea Party says all that and more. As usual in the big game of politics these days, the truth of the matter lies somewhere in between the jubilation, obfuscation and exaggeration being spewed by the partisan players. In the meantime, while the Democrats are dancing in the streets and the Republicans are sharpening their sabers, considerably less attention is being paid to the “fixes” that are included in legislation the House just passed over to the Senate. And yeah, you’d be correct to ask: “If the bill is so great, how come it needs fixes already?” The answer is that the measure wouldn’t have passed if the House Democrats didn’t get some assurance that the “fixes” to the Senate bill would be enacted. While the promises have been made, it’s prudent to remember that had the Senate wanted those “fixes” in their bill, they could have included them originally, but did not—at least the provisions that actually apply to health care. The other add-ons that were tossed

in to make the bill more palatable to the House—like putting student loans back in the hands of the government and out of the rapacious banks—are what the Senate will have to accept as part and parcel of the bargaining it took to get

You’d be “ correct to ask: ‘If the bill is so great, how come it needs fixes already?’

their fellow Democrats to vote for the bill. As the Senate moves quickly to take action on the fixes in the face of fierce Republican opposition, we’ll soon see how this part of the soap opera turns out. The reality, however, is that whatever happens in Washington, D.C., from now on is only part of the on-going health care game. The attorneys general from 13 states have already filed their suits. That means more than a quarter of all states in the nation are opposing the bill before the ink of Obama’s signature has even dried. Nor is that the end of it since more than 30 states have already requested or introduced legislative measures to allow them to ignore the provisions of the health care bill. Plus, there are efforts already underway to amend state constitutions to specifically reject the federal mandate that individuals must purchase health insurance. Few can doubt that the rising tide of angst, anger and action against the bill is worth noting. Even fewer can doubt that those lawsuits by the states will ultimate-

ly wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court after endless and costly court battles and appeals—all of which will be paid for by, you guessed it, state and federal taxpayers. When states battle the federal government, it’s “We, the People” who get to pick up the tab, no matter who wins in the end. At this point it’s impossible to foretell what the outcome will be, but some things seem certain: If the states prevail, and the Supreme Court rules that the federal government does not have specific authority to mandate the purchase of a product (insurance) by individuals, the great health care bill quickly unravels. Without the mandated growth to the corporate insurance pool of some 32 million new customers, all those other provisions, like forcing insurance companies to provide coverage despite pre-existing conditions, won’t work—they’ll simply lead to claims that the government is bankrupting them and the fat backroom deal they cut with Obama and the Dems won’t be much of a deal for them anymore. If, on the other hand, the states don’t win their suits, the power of the federal government to control states and individuals will have taken a giant leap forward, albeit in what many would consider the wrong direction. In politics, just as in physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and you can bet that the reaction will be a nationwide effort to reverse the power grab by the feds through yet more lawsuits, more state constitutional changes and, if things get really out of hand and people get angry enough, by civil disobedience and riots like we haven’t seen since the civil rights and Vietnam War clashes of the ’60s. And believe me, having lived through those times, it won’t be much fun. For now, though, the Dems are dancing in the streets, insurance and health cartel stocks are soaring (which should tell you something about what a great deal this bill is for the populace), and the seething anger boils away. Far from unifying the nation, on health care and its relation to states’ rights and partisan politics, the game has just begun.

Winds of change Wyoming’s turbine tax provides a positive model by Jonathan Thompson

Wyoming has some of the world’s best winds, as anyone knows who’s battled with wind-whipped tractor-trailers along Interstate 80. So it’s no surprise that wind turbines have been sprouting in the state’s wide-open spaces at a rapid rate, upping its total wind-power-generating capacity by more than 30 percent in just one year. Wyoming is also the nation’s principal energy colony: It’s the leading coal producer in the United States and ranks in the top three states for natural gas production. Yet Wyoming hasn’t exactly welcomed wind power with open arms. The state showed its green bona fides by banning wind farms from prime sage grouse areas, putting about half of the state’s best winds off-limits. Then it repealed its sales tax exemption for turbines, while some of its most prominent public officials blasted the industry for running roughshod over Wyoming’s wildlands and wildlife. Now, the governor has just signed a bill to tax energy from wind farms, and the turbine pushers are in a frenzy of worry. They’re even mimicking their colleagues in the oil and gas industry, saying the tax might chase them out of the state. But the wind tax could be the best thing that ever happened to wind in Wyoming. In case you hadn’t been paying attention, Wyoming is run by the fossil fuel industry. That’s not just because of a lot of industry lobbying, or because oil and gas finances most of the state’s campaigns, or even because quite a few Wyoming politicians have worked in the oil, gas or coal industry at one time or another. It’s because the state’s coffers are as dependent on fossil fuel tax revenues as a baby is on its mother’s breast. In any given year, the gas and oil industry in Wyoming contributes more than $1.5 billion to state and local government budgets through severance taxes,

royalties, sales and use taxes and property taxes. Coal producers add another $800 million or more annually. Those are direct payments and don’t include the tens of thousands of jobs that the fossil fuel industry brings to the state—the coal mines alone employ some 18,000 people at an average salary of $65,000. Meanwhile, the

Wind will “ never generate as much money for the state as oil and gas and coal, but then wind isn’t going to run out,

either.

wind industry contributed just $3.8 million in property taxes this year, in addition to a bit for state land leases. (The sales tax exemption remains in effect until the end of this year.) So when Wyoming seems to be picking on wind even as it kowtows to fossil fuels, it’s because of practical, not ideological, considerations. That explains why, when the state moved to protect sage grouse “core areas” in hopes of avoiding an Endangered Species Act listing for the bird, it carefully drew the lines so as to leave the oil and gas hotspots free from regulation. State officials readily admit that the core areas were drawn to keep the cash

flowing and the roughnecks working. Meanwhile, many of the windy sweet spots were overlain with core areas, putting them off-limits to turbines. The proposed wind tax, which breezed through the Wyoming Legislature, levies a modest $1-per-megawatt-hour on turbines. At current levels of wind-power generation, it would generate $5 million or so in annual revenue. That could easily double or triple in just a few years; the Power Company of Wyoming’s proposed wind farm near Rawlins could—by itself— triple the state’s wind-generating capacity. Wind will never generate as much money for the state as oil and gas and coal, but then wind isn’t going to run out, either, or be made obsolete by climate change concerns. The wind tax is a reliable, long-term investment. Even better, though, it puts wind power in the same category as fossil fuels in Wyoming, making it subject to the state’s unofficial motto: “Bring on your energy projects, so we can tax the hell out of them.” When those turbines start adding some money to Wyoming’s schools and other state programs, people are more likely to see them in a favorable light. Or, at least—as they’ve done with oil and gas—they’ll be more likely to ignore their impacts. My advice to the wind-industry folks who are in a tizzy over this tax? Relax. It may make the economics tougher when it comes to building a wind farm, but it could soften the political opposition to turbines, which seems to grow daily. And the “we’ll go somewhere else if you tax us” rhetoric that you stole from your oil and gas counterparts? Lighten up, please. We need wind power, not hot air.

I think it’s safe to say that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) community hasn’t always found a ton of support from Republicans, pastors or veterans. Certainly, there are exceptions—the Log Cabin Republicans come to mind, as do liberal religious congregations. Other than those examples, I’ll admit that I’ve never considered the aforementioned groups as champions for LGBT rights. Until now, that is. This week, you’ll be able to hear a Republican, a pastor and a veteran discuss their views in support of LGBT equality during a forum hosted by Forward Montana. Specifically, you’ll listen to comments from Dan Zwonitzer, a Republican state legislator from Wyoming, and Brian Marsh, a pastor at Missoula’s First Presbyterian Church. They’ll be joined by Sgt.

Samuel P. Redfern, a U.S. Army vet who recently served in Iraq. At some point after their discussion, the ball is in your court, and you’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions. Forward Montana’s Bryce Bennett—who’s also running for state office—says the aim of this roundtable is to show that support of LGBT parity isn’t just relegated to minority viewpoints. “It’s become mainstream and universal,” he says. —Ira Sather-Olson

I N OTHER N EWS Curious but true news items from around the world

CURSES, FOILED AGAIN - A woman who police said tried to rob two credit unions in Memphis, Tenn., fled empty-handed both times because tellers couldn’t figure out what she wanted. The first attempt ended with the frustrated robber throwing her holdup note at the teller and running away after the teller couldn’t understand her mumbling. A few hours later, a teller at the second credit union kept asking the woman fumbling in her purse what she wanted. Finally, she produced a note. When she also pulled a gun, the teller left. The woman ran outside, tripped and fell, dropped her gun, then got into a car and drove off. Alerted by neighbors that someone was breaking into their car, a couple in Lake City, Fla., used their entry remote control to lock the thief inside. “So every time he tried to get out of the car, the owners just kept hitting the lock button on their key fob, and eventually he gave up trying to get out,” Columbia County sheriff’s Sgt. Ed Seifert said after Travis James Neeley, 19, was arrested. GET ’EM WHILE THEY LAST - The Hump, a Japanese restaurant in Santa Monica, Calif., known for its exotic sushi, admitted serving whale meat after federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint against the restaurant and its chef, Kiyoshiro Yamamoto. The action followed an investigation by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Game and the federal Customs and Border Protection agency, prompted by the team behind the Oscar-winning documentary about dolphin hunting, The Cove. “Someone should not be able to walk into a restaurant and order a plate of an endangered species,” U.S. attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said. Canada’s Parliament reacted to a European Union ban on seal products by serving seal hors d’oeuvres and main dishes at its restaurant. Two dozen lawmakers attended a luncheon to eat seal and listen to speeches endorsing Canada’s annual seal hunt. “This support begins on the plates of Canadians,” federal Fisheries Minister Gail Shea proclaimed while dining on medallions of double-smoked, bacon wrapped seal loin in a port reduction. THE LAST STRAW - Police in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said Johnny Dossey, 43, reacted to a $70 water bill by dousing his mobile home with gasoline and then setting it on fire. A few minutes later, the home exploded. Neighbor Luis Alvarez, who said he heard Dossey arguing with his father about the bill, pointed out, “I guess he got fed up with it, and that’s the only way he saw out of it.” SELF-SERVICE FOLLIES - A 46-year-old man was arrested for drunk driving in South Bend, Ind., after other motorists reported their vehicles were struck by a hose from a gasoline pump dangling from the gas tank of his truck. An employee at the gas station said the man bought gas with a credit card but then drove off with the hose still attached to the vehicle.

FAITH-BASED INITIATIVE - Selective brain damage might influence spiritual and religious attitudes, according to an Italian study of patients before and after surgery for brain tumors. Researchers interested in linking brain activity and spirituality focused specifically on the personality trait called self-transcendence (ST), which is considered a measure of spiritual feeling, thinking and behavior. Reporting in the journal Neuron, the researchers said they hoped their findings could lead to new strategies for treating some forms of mental illness. TELL A FRIEND - Israeli military authorities called off a planned raid on a West Bank village after one of its combat soldiers posted the raid’s time and location on his Facebook page. The soldier was court-martialed and sentenced to 10 days in prison. Prior to the leak, the Israeli military had launched a public information campaign warning of the hazards of sharing military information online. In military bases, posters show a mock Facebook page with images of Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. Below their pictures and a Facebook friend request, the slogan reads, “You think that everyone is your friend?” SECOND-AMENDMENT FOLLIES - School district superintendent Dwain Haggard was showing his replica black powder muzzleloader to five high school students in Reed Point, Mont., when the gun fired and lodged a ball in the front wall of the classroom. “I can’t explain how it was loaded,” Haggard said, insisting the students were “never really in danger.” STUCK IN THE PAST - Turkey recalled its ambassador to the United States after the House Foreign Affairs Committee voted to label as “genocide” the killing of Armenians by Ottoman forces during World War I. The symbolic resolution passed 23-22. The United States previously condemned the killings of 300,000 to 500,000 Armenians between 1915 and 1918 but refrained from calling them genocide to avoid straining relations with Turkey, a key Muslim-majority ally in the Middle East. President Obama promised during his campaign that he would recognize the events as genocide but backed down from using that term in his message last year commemorating the killings. BAD EGG - Florida Highway Patrol officials reported that a 17-year-old girl, after discovering that her ex-boyfriend was seeing another girl, headed for the boyfriend’s home in New Port Richey with the intention of egging his car, but she lost control of her Dodge Neon while swerving to avoid another vehicle and smashed into a house. The collision took out a wall of the one-story building and left the garage door mangled. KICKS JUST KEEP GETTING HARDER TO FIND - After a mother caught Ralph Conone, 68, hitting her two boys, ages 6 and 7, at a Wal-Mart store in Columbus, Ohio, he admitted to police that he’d been punching children on the backs of their heads with his keys in his fist for months. “He stated that he does this because of the excitement of being able to do it and get away with it with the parents right there,” police Sgt. John Hurst said. Conone explained that he would wait until a parent wandered briefly out of sight of a child before striking the child with his keys between his fingers. When the child cried out, Conone would slip away unnoticed.

racked and water-stained gravestones across the Missoula Municipal Cemetery’s oldest sections tell of lives cut short by insanity, alcoholism and hard work. Thousands of the mossy markers include just the most basic details—name, year of birth, year of death—but the dusty records housed in the cemetery’s office paint a picture of what it was to live in a Missoula where saloons outnumbered churches and a railroad man could pay to spend the night under the care of madam Mary Gleim. Gleim operated a “boarding house” in what was then the city’s red light district on West Front Street until she died in 1914. Her gravestone is a massive granite monument that towers over the significantly smaller marker belonging to her husband. Gleim’s is the only stone at the Missoula burial grounds that doesn’t face east to west, says cemetery record keeper Mary Ellen Stubb. “Legend has it that she put that in her will to have it that way so she could wave to her boys, her railroad boys, as they went by,” Stubb explains. Stubb likely knows more than anyone else about the lives and deaths of those

C

who lie in the cemetery’s soil. Since hired as the sexton in 2003, she’s dedicated herself to bringing the burial grounds into the modern age. The act of uploading information into a city database has led her to become enamored with the endless stories documented in frayed red ledgers and yellowed burial permits collected throughout the decades. “It was during that process, when you’re actually looking at each individual person’s records, that things started jumping out at us—the histories, the idea that, wow, everyone has a story, everyone has a history,” Stubb says. “Some of them are good. Some of them are not so good. Some of them are warm and fuzzy. And some of them are kind of creepy.” This flat patch of land northwest of downtown Missoula serves as the final resting place for 21,000 people. Each of them surely faced some level of struggle, triumph and loss—universal flavors of the human experience—and those stories have converged at the 80-acre municipal cemetery for more than 12 decades. As Stubb and her colleagues tell it, the bits of information mined from those frayed ledgers provide as much insight into what Missoula was, is and could be as anything.

More recently, cemetery staffers are willing to tell that full story. In the past, they mostly focused on sharing the accomplishments of Missoula’s founders and the uplifting side of Missoula’s history. But Stubb and Doug Waters, the cemetery director since 1999, now say the complete picture deserves attention—“whether it’s comfortable,” Stubb says, “or whether it’s not comfortable.” “Every stone has a story,” Waters adds. “The more you get into understanding the stories, the more you understand the history of Missoula.”

P

rior to the turn of the 20th century, landowners usually buried their dead on private property. Travelers were simply buried alongside the wagon trial and laborers building the Northern Pacific Railroad frequently earned a grave trackside. But when the Missoula cemetery was established in 1884, things changed. “As Missoula began growing, the effort was: Stop the individual homegrown burials, and let’s make a regular public cemetery where everyone would be recorded and everyone would have a place to go,” Stubb says. “And as Missoula kept expanding they needed that room.”

And they certainly did need the room. Over the years, burial grounds had cropped up around Missoula. For instance, Prescott School at the base of Mount Jumbo was erected on top of a burial ground used by Chinese laborers. Once all of those sites were dug up and moved to the cemetery, or simply built upon, Missoula’s dead increasingly ended up at the plot of land near the railroad tracks. And then the records began to pile up. The information was often inconsistent or illegible—but it was there, and Stubb now has her hands full documenting who, exactly, is buried on the grounds. “I have to tell you, when I first walked in the door I wondered what I had gotten myself into,” she says looking around the cemetery office, once cluttered with burial permits, maps, deeds and ownership papers. “It was a bit overwhelming at first.” The third generation Montana native says once she started reading about who was buried where, she was hooked. Many of the biographies struck her as similar to that of her own grandfather, who emigrated from Sweden at age 17. Many other files simply held little discoveries about early Missoula, like the fact that

“brain trouble” and alcoholism were the two primary causes of death in the cemetery’s early years. Specifically, Stubb spends her time cross-referencing a gravestone inventory conducted row-by-row with reams of paper unearthed in the old files. The work takes time. She’s been at it for years, and says she’s only halfway done. But it’s worth it. “That has led us to a number of people that we didn’t even know were here,” Stubb says. “As we stumble through, and, literally, stumble through these files we’re learning more and more…It wasn’t until last year that we realized that we had what the cemetery termed a ‘colored lot.’” Fewer than 30 people are buried in two sections used for African American interments between 1928 and 1937. The small patches sit near the center of the grounds. Poor people had a specific spot in the cemetery, as well. Until about 1999, when Waters came on board, those buried with the help of Missoula County subsidies were segregated to the cemetery’s farthest corner and another sparsely stoned area closer to the entrance. Those areas include few trees and only feature small, flat cement markers. Elaborate stones commemorating wellheeled locals dwarf the taxpayer-funded markers, which have in many places sunk completely into the earth. “It just kind of gives you a sad flowing feel in that section,” Stubb says. Not far from the county burial section lies Missoula’s only known serial killer, Wayne Nance. According to law enforcement, he murdered at least four people over the course of 12 years. Nance himself was killed by injuries he sustained during an attack on a coworker in 1986. The killer’s father, George Nance, outlived his son by eight years. According to cemetery records, the elder Nance purchased Wayne’s stone. It’s engraved with the words, “Beloved Son.” Stubb and Waters only recently decided to publicly talk about Nance’s legacy. “That one was a stretch for us when we decided to tell that story,” Stubb says. “Up until that point, the only stories that had been told here were Missoula founders C.P. Higgins and Emma Dickenson—just the warm and fuzzy stories, which were great. But as we began scouring these files it became apparent that there’s far more to the people who are buried here than just those few founders. And every story was important, because every story has had an effect on Missoula.” Another story that falls into the darker category centers on the death of CIA operative Jerry Daniels. The Ovando native fought the communists during the Vietnam War. When the United States pulled out, he facilitated emigration of the American-allied Hmong to Missoula before reportedly being killed by a faulty water heater in his Thailand apartment in 1982.

The Missoula Municipal Cemetery, a flat patch of land northwest of downtown, serves as the final resting place for 21,000 people. Of the cemetery’s 80 acres, half have yet to be developed.

The official account of Daniels’ death didn’t jibe for many. It didn’t help that he was shipped home to the Missoula Municipal Cemetery in a hermetically sealed casket under U.S. State Department and CIA guard.

D

oug Waters waves his hand over the newly developed portion of the cemetery and rattles off a list of names. “The Mings used to have a restaurant here,” he says. “Jensens, they’re the contractors, or over there is a veterinarian…”

based on a master plan drawn up in 1964. Of the property’s 80 available acres, 40 have yet to be developed. While Stubb consumes herself with the cemetery’s past, Waters remains firmly focused on the future, and implementing that master plan.

“Every stone has a story. The more you get into understanding the stories, the more you understand the history of Missoula.” —Doug Waters, director, Missoula Municipal Cemetery “Basically, the casket came back here to the United States in 1982 when he died with security guards and strict orders the casket was never to be opened,” Stubb says. “The wonder has always been whether or not Jerry Daniels was really killed.” Stubb could recite stories like this for days on end. But when asked to reflect on which ones resonate most for her, she says it’s those of 19th and 20th century pioneers, many of them immigrants like her grandfather simply struggling to make their way in the West. “They came here with nothing,” she says. “And they were looking for that fortune. And so many of them didn’t find it. But the impact they had in the general area, and the lifestyles they left in order to make things better for their families, those are all very heartwarming stories.” As Stubb makes headway through decades of documentation—records are now available at the click of a mouse at www.ci.missoula.mt.us—she’s increasingly equipped to assist the grandchildren of those original trailblazers, people like herself, who, in seeking a connection to their past, learn more about themselves. “They’re looking for answers,” Stubb says. “It’s like they’re piecing together these puzzles of their families.”

Having lived in Missoula on and off since 1964, the 57-year-old cemetery director has deep roots in the community. “It’s kind of freaky out here—I have a lot of friends buried out here,” he says. Waters, who has a degree in landscape architecture, is charged with overseeing the cemetery’s ongoing expansion, which is

The slim, thoughtful man speaks openly about grieving for friends, neighbors and loved ones laid to rest where he works, but he also finds comfort in the cemetery’s enduring predictability. “You have to plan cemeteries in thousands and thousands of years, because they’re permanent,” he says.

Since joining the cemetery staff as sexton in 2003, Mary Ellen Stubb has become increasingly enamored of the stories collected here. “Some of them are good,” says Stubb. “Some of them are not so good. Some of them are warm and fuzzy. And some of them are kind of creepy.”

It takes two men about four hours to dig a grave, according to Ron Regan, the cemetery’s maintenance manager for the past 10 years. “We don’t get into the history too much out here,” he says. “We’re the gravediggers.”

“They’re there forever. I think that’s what I also liked about cemeteries—they’re planned for permanency.” Waters acknowledges the irony in embracing permanency in a place tied to human mortality. But he points to the gravestones as an example of the cemetery’s lasting importance. “When you get right down to it, unless you’re really, really wealthy and you get to build skyscrapers or have bridges named after you, about all you have left is a stone with your name on it,” he says. Missoula’s gravestones run the gamut, from small, temporary cement slabs, which often stick around for decades, to a massive block of hand-cut India granite that stands about five feet

tall and, according to Waters, likely costs in the neighborhood of $65,000. Somewhere between those two extremes sits the boulder gravestone belonging to architect A.J. Gibson. Gibson’s emphasis on building with stone and brick rather than wood, which is vulnerable to fires and erosion, helped reshape Missoula’s landscape. With his emphasis on longevity, Gibson helped brand the growing community a permanent social and commercial hub. Gibson and his wife, Maud Lockley, died when a train hit their car on New Year’s Eve in 1927. He was 65. Speaking perhaps to his love of design, Gibson’s headstone quotes the song “America”: “I love thy rocks and rills, thy woods and templed hills…”

As part of the cemetery’s spring cleaning, the grounds crew collects trinkets left graveside. Many of the nicer gifts are kept and stored for one year as a courtesy provided by cemetery staff.

Final words like Gibson’s fill the cemetery. For instance, there’s the suicide note a family had engraved in white lettering on a 14-year-old girl’s marker. The final note was taken from a poem originally penned by an anonymous author. “I turned my back and left it all…,” it reads. “Tasks left undone must stay that way, I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.” Walking from the young girl’s stone, Waters points to another thing that fills the cemetery: pennies. Tradition holds that a penny left graveside signals the deceased was visited and therefore held in high esteem. Waters says there’s one stone down the way that’s had the same penny on it for eight years. Waters pulls his jacket tighter against the late winter breeze and talks about lessons to be learned at the cemetery. After all, it’s tough not to grow watching grieving neighbors grapple with loss. “I think that people just don’t appreciate life enough,” he says. “People are too stressed. They’re always doing stuff to other people. Families are doing stuff to each other. And when it’s all taken away from you, you realize all the stuff you shouldn’t have done or maybe you should have done. You get to start to be more sympathetic, more understanding, more compassionate and really start to understand the true meaning of helping people, especially through hard times.”

W

ith a yellow measuring tape, two groundskeepers in baggy blue work pants mark the spot, then slice a niche through grass with a shovel. There’s only a foot between graves in many places, so there’s not much room for error when digging a grave. Today the groundskeepers are burying cremains, or the ashes of someone recently cremated. The cremains fill a small pine box wrapped in a green velvet bag. The men place the package into a white “poly vault” that looks like a cooler and acts as protection from the elements. There’s no family here on this mid-March day. The woman goes into the ground alone. “I don’t know if she has any family,” says Ron Regan, the cemetery’s maintenance manager. “We don’t get into the history too much out here. We’re the gravediggers.” For the past 10 years, Regan, a 51year-old Missoula native, has overseen the facility’s grounds-keeping operation. The job involves ensuring burials and funerals go smoothly, keeping the lawn up to snuff and being a professional empath of sorts. He thinks less of the cemetery’s past or future, and stays focused on the day-to-day responsibilities. The biggest worry for Regan—and a universal fear among gravediggers, he says—involves the possibility that someone could be buried in the wrong place. “We double check that three times before we even dig. That’s a big one,

because if that ever happened it would be a bad scenario,” he says. “Don’t ever think it can’t happen. In cemeteries around the world it’s happened.” There’s never been a mix-up like that under his watch, Regan says. Although, there was some confusion years ago surrounding where to inter a woman who had remarried her brother-in-law. “When the family got out there, it was wrong,” he says. “They didn’t want her buried next to their uncle. They wanted her buried next to dad.” Regan handled the mix-up before the woman went into the ground. Situations like that highlight the surprising complexities of a gravedigger’s job. “You have to be able to read these people,” Regan says. “How many times do you go to the hospital and visit a friend and say, ‘How are you feeling?’ You know, ‘How do you think I’m feeling? I’m here’…[You] ain’t doing well, usually, if you’re at the cemetery.” Graves present hazards, too. As coffins decompose, dirt sinks into them, creating soft patches of land. On the surface, though, the grass remains tout. The result leaves an invisible void, which amounts to a booby trap—more humorous than dangerous—that someone can step into, and then fall. “You just hope somebody don’t come out and grab you,” Regan quips. “It just kind of gets to you a little bit.” Regan and his crew fill between 200 and 300 sunken graves a year. It’s one of the chores they juggle in a constant effort to stay on top of the workload. Other days, especially as the ground thaws and lilac trees lining the cemetery perimeter bud, the groundskeepers groom the entire expanse. Spring is the busiest time of year, and traffic peaks during Memorial Day Weekend, when about 1,000 cars roll daily through the cemetery’s gates. As part of the cemetery’s spring cleaning, Regan tags trinkets left graveside—teddy bears, birthday cards, Christmas wreathes, tequila, Copenhagen and Schmidt beer. Many of the nicer gifts are kept and stored for one year as a courtesy provided by cemetery staff. The hardest gifts for Regan and his crew to pick up are the ones left in the infant’s cemetery. On a recent morning, three deflated balloons hang from a blue spruce not far from a round canister containing a hand-written note and tiny Christmas stocking. The canister, painted with angels, sits beside a copper-colored stone belonging to a child who died the same day it was born. “This is the section that none of us like to come to,” Regan says, clearing leaves from the infant’s marker. “A lot of us gravediggers don’t talk about it. There’s emotions out here.”

businesses like the Roseburg Mill and Allied Waste walk among cracked stones during lunch breaks. And since the roads were paved in 2004—another modern upgrade—savvy recreationists take advantage of low-traffic cemetery streets. “We have people who come out here and roller blade,” Regan says. Regan finally broke down and bought a “niche” in a massive granite wall that looks out onto the old part of the cemetery last year. His cremated remains will be stored there, along with more than 100 others. It’s not far from where his grandparents are buried and across from a fountain that’s still thawing in the spring sun. Called a columbarium, Regan and his team built the wall in 2002. If one shares a double niche, as spouses often do, columbarium expenses run about $400 per person. It’s easy to see the financial incentive when compared to a traditional burial, which sets one back about $1,100, Regan says. “It’s very practical,” he says. “The cost of funerals these days and everything, that is the best price.” Assuming a matter-of-fact demeanor, the maintenance manager points to his niche in the top right corner of the columbarium and lists who goes where.

“This is where I go,” he says. “This is my mother-in-law. This is my nephew. My father-in-law is in here, too. I still have room to put someone in there if I ever had to use it. If not, I’m good with that. I really don’t want to use it.” Regan not only earns his paycheck here, he’ll spend eternity here. But he shrugs off the thought. Death is pretty simple to him. “It’s a fact of life…,” he says. “I always say, you have a number on your ass, you just can’t see it.” Waters also has a burial site picked out at the cemetery. Working next to where he’ll be laid to rest hasn’t made thinking about death any easier. He still worries about leaving everyone behind. “The difficulty is thinking about leaving the loved ones,” he says. “And, after you’re gone, all of the issues they’ll have not having you there.” As for Stubb, she’ll be interred here, too. She’s not sure yet if she will be buried or cremated, but she knows she’ll rest on the same grounds as her grandfather. That means Stubb’s not only helping to preserve the cemetery’s story, and it’s significance to Missoula, but she’s also a part of it. jmayrer@missoulanews.com

The cemetery continues to expand based on a master plan drawn up in 1964. “You have to plan cemeteries in thousands and thousands of years, because they’re permanent,” says director Doug Waters. “They’re there forever. I think that’s what I also liked about cemeteries—they’re planned for permanency.”

The customer is sometimes right FLASHINTHEPAN “I just spoke with the chef,” we overheard the waiter announce to another party. At our table we exchanged knowing glances. We first heard those words in the antechamber adjacent the dining room of Restaurant Royale Licorne, in Lyons-la-Foret, Normandy. We sipped calvados, a Norman apple brandy, while munching on thin slices of cured hamand petit cheesy puff pastries that evaporated upon contact with saliva. After spending nearly an hour deciphering the menu, we had finally settled upon our choices. The waiter seemed uncomfortable as we ordered, but said nothing. But he quickly returned to the ordering chamber and announced, “I just spoke with the chef. “All of our food is made to order,” he explained, “and it would be difficult to prepare these dishes at the same time. “And the chef says the different textures and flavors of the foods you ordered won’t go well together.” In America, we’re used to telling the waiter what we want. Here, it seemed, the waiter was telling us what we wanted. After a few awkward moments of attempting to put together an acceptable order, we finally said, “Please tell the chef to prepare us whatever he thinks is best.” The waiter was pleased to hear this, and rushed out before we had a chance to change our minds. This meal happened after several days of eating our way around Paris with the help of a guidebook that was supposed to lead us to the some of the city’s best restaurants. The food was generally good, but not mind-expanding. Many of the menus followed a standard set of classic French dishes that relied on butter, crème and fat, and we always had the feeling that the food we wanted was around the next corner. And maybe it was, but we kept squandering our precious gastrointestinal real estate space on dishes that were good, sometimes great, but not educational. All too often the escargots were muddy, the coq au vin was dry, the veal kid-

neys tasted like stale urine, and there weren’t enough vegetables. But this meal in Normandy was shaping up to be a keeper. The original copy of Napoleon’s will hung framed on the restaurant wall. And the dining room, decorated in red, gray and charcoal, was adorned with the feathered helmets, hairy hats, uniforms and body armor of Napoleon’s generals. A dusting of barely audible jazz cloaked the silence. The waiter brought bowls of what looked like cappuccino, but were in fact snail-stuffed ravioli topped with a foamy lemon emulsion, drizzled with beef reduction, and sprinkled with fruity pieces of

cured ham from a rare breed of black Spanish pig, and accompanied with glasses of rose champagne. Next, two-tiered slices of velvety foie gras separated by a delicate layer of smoked hale fish and topped with thin-sliced apples and a thinner sheet of sugar brittle, flanked with a drizzle of balsamic reduction, a small pile of large-grained sea salt, and a bouquet of miniature red and green shiso leaves. Served with a glass of Dernières Grives that was velvety and musky, the foie gras was fatty, silky, sweet, salty, tangy, fruity, fragrant and rich, delivering nearly every flavor the human tongue can perceive. “Normally you only engage 30 percent of the taste buds,” explained the waiter. “We want you to use at least 70 percent.”

Each course came with its own chef-picked glass of wine. Every time we told the waiter how good something was, he thanked us. It felt like the waiter, rather than being a servant, was a partner in the shared goal of providing the perfect dining experience. The chef, of course, was the boss, and every time the waiter reported having spoken to him we braced for the update to our plans, which always seemed for the better. The main course consisted of fried pieces of red mullet fish, delicately crispy outside with a moist interior, resting atop a bed of braised fennel. They were sprinkled with crispy bean noodles and drenched in a pumpkin crème sauce. Next, a “predessert” of lemon custard served in a tall glass and topped with almond crème emulsion. And, finally, a plate of dacquoise praline with almond and hazelnut meringue and spiced pear. At one point I noticed the chef, Christophe Poirier, peering at us from under the A-framed furry hat of Napoleon’s musketeer. Poirier emerged to applause from the dining room, and we spoke with the chef. Later, the waiter confided that after two years with Poirier (the establishment has been open since 1768) the goal is an elusive Photo by Ari LeVaux Michelin star; a Michelin inspector who visited had not deemed it worthy. One star seemed a humble ambition for such a place, and I had to wonder what fault the inspector had found. Up to three stars are given by the famously stodgy guidebook, which holds such prestige in some circles that one three-star chef, Bernard Loiseau, committed suicide at the mere rumor that he might lose one of his stars. We left satisfied, but not bloated, feeling like we’d spent the evening in the Louvre appreciating art. The meal wasn’t cheap, and for that kind of money it paid to leave the decision in the hands of the guy with a front row seat to the options. In America, we’re used to the customer being always right. But this cowboy didn’t mind having his reins pulled away by a chef who knows best.

HAPPIESTHOUR Maui Nites What you’re drinking: Beer and wine only. Unfortunately, the lineup doesn’t feature a single local brew. It should also be mentioned that the absence of fruity drinks with umbrellas hurts the overall island vibe.

Claim to fame: Probably the fact that it’s a Maui-themed casino located in Missoula and connected to a Mexican restaurant. You just don’t see that combo very often. Atmosphere: Very cabana-at-midnight, if that cabana had an abundance of video poker machines. The walls are airbrushed to look like rolling waves in the middle of the night, and the ceiling is dotted with tiny lights meant to look like stars. Thatch overhangs line the rows of gaming machines, and a cluster of Keno stations ring a palm tree in the center of the casino. Even the bamboo-accented bar has little beach trinkets— is that a turquoise seahorse?—along the wall. Naturally, the bartenders wear Hawaiian shirts.

Who you’re drinking with: Gamblers. What you’re eating: Fiesta En Jalisco connects to Maui Nites and offers a full menu of authentic Mexican cuisine. Absolutely everybody—bartenders, regulars at the bar, wait staff in the restaurant—swears by the enormous carne asada burrito ($11.95). “That thing is lunch and dinner,” beams bartender Jesse Lund. How to find it: Look for the large sign at 3701 Brooks Street, on the south side of town. —Skylar Browning

Surf report: If you’re ranking a beach on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being a syringe-infested Jersey shore (with or without Snooki) and 10 being a private spot on Bora Bora, Maui Nites feels like a solid 4, maybe 4.5. It goes out of its way to not feel like just another casino, and receives bonus points for the friendliest staff this side of a Sandals Resort. Downgraded for not actually being on the water.

ASKARI Are nitrates naughty? The natural foods stores sell “uncured” (nitrate-free) bacon, salami and other items traditionally made with nitrates. The catch: They use celery juice and sea salt, natural sources of nitrates. Are nitrates dangerous in food? And if so, are naturally occurring nitrates less bad? —Fear of Nitrate Bacon

Q

Many foods contain added nitrates to preserve color and maintain microbial safety. And while cured meats are most definitely on this list, most of the nitrates we ingest come from water and vegetables, which can carry fertilizer residue. However, nitrate-related problems are more prevalent in meat because the abundant protein in meat encourages the conversion of nitrates into carcinogenic chemicals called nitrosamines. Vitamin C is thought to

A

inhibit the conversion to nitrosamines in the stomach, so a glass of orange juice with your morning bacon might be a good idea. Nitrosamines have also been linked to aging-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, diabetes mellitus and Parkinson’s. Another breakdown product of nitrates is nitrites, which can also cause problems. In babies, nitrites can cause an oxygen-deficient condition called methaemoglobinaemia, or “blue baby syndrome” for the color that oxygen-starved skin takes on. These dangers exist even if the nitrates are naturally occurring, as in the celery juice and sea salt that as you mentioned are often used to cure “natural” or “no nitrates added” meats.

SPOTLIGHT

musical morale

Life hasn’t been easy lately for Mike Crow. Just before Christmas, Crow was driving with his family when a car rear-ended them. Soon after, he suffered a brain hemorrhage as he was driving home from work. Because of the severity of his brain injury, Crow currently can’t work at his job installing heating and cooling in low-income households, and his family survives on one small income. To top it off, the Crow’s don’t have health insurance, so you can only imagine the amount of financial stress they’re going through. Here’s where you come in. This week let your generous side shine during Rock the Mic for Mike, a benefit concert that aims to help the Crow family. This philanthropic evening of music features local Americana favorites Wartime Blues, pictured here, along with driving rock and folk from David Boone and the WHAT: Rock the Mic for Mike WHO: David Boone and the Mercenaries, Secret Powers, Wartime Blues, Places, Kira Means and Stan Anglen WHEN: Fri., March 26, 7 PM WHERE: Wilma Theatre HOW MUCH: $12/$10 advance at Ear Candy and Rockin Rudy’s

Mercenaries. Power pop mavens Secret Powers also plan to tear it up, along with a set of pop rock from Places. Acoustic performances by Kira Means and Stan Anglen are also on tap, as is a cameo from the always-affable Mayor John Engen. Besides a night of top shelf music, here’s another reason why this event deserves your attention: All proceeds from the show will be donated to Crow’s family, and the goal is to raise $20,000 to $30,000 to offset the rising costs of their medical expenses and necessities. Even if you’ve never crossed paths with Crow, you might consider this a prime opportunity to soak in the sounds of some seasoned artists on a grand stage, while also lending your hand to a family in dire need. —Ira Sather-Olson

The Strong Women Project goes beyond just a pretty face by Erika Fredrickson

of Montana students Shane McMillan, Laura Pflum and Richelle DeVoe. The exhibit consists of 15 photos and statements, and attempts to portray strong women without limiting definitions. Each woman reflects obvious diversity through

society. That kind of thing. Others are more intriguing and against the grain. For instance, Veronica Alvaro, an army medic, says: “Don’t genderize yourself. Hang out with guys. Shoot hoops and try to skateboard, drink beer…gut a fish. Learn to fight and change your oil.” In her photo, she poses stoically in fatigues. Clinical sexologist Lindsey Doe talks about the actual process of the project in her statement. She showed up to the photo shoot dressed in a pressed collared shirt, slacks and matching jewelry. But after posing for a couple of shots she shook her head and told McMillan, “This is all wrong. This isn’t working.” A few hours later she returned carrying a bowl of dirt from her backyard, and then a d d e d w a t e r. S h e stripped off her shirt down to her bra and rubbed the mud all over her face and chest. It was a personal epiphany for Doe. For McMillan, it also proved an inspiring moment. “She was one of the most revealing subjects,” McMillan says. “When she came dressed as a professional, in black and white, she was kind of nervous. But when she came back…she put the mud on her face and it was really cool. She just kind of went for it.” The Strong Women Clockwise from top left, Alex Kuennen, Bree Sutherland, Laura Cahill, Veronica Alvaro, Teresa Branch and Lindsey Doe Project doesn’t get too represent just a few of the subjects from The Strong Women Project exhibit at the Mansfield Library. philosophically complex, nor does it try to define all women in a definition of strong women as multi-tasking, occupation, race and sexual orientation.

(Also, the opening Transylvanian sleigh-ride scene of Fearless Vampire Killers is one of the trippiest things ever committed to celluloid.

By Amy Alkon

THINGS THAT GO PLUMP IN THE NIGHT I’m absolutely appalled by your response to “Fatty With A Dream,” the woman whose boyfriend hasn’t touched her in over a year because she gained 40 pounds. Contrary to what you wrote, it isn’t unrealistic to expect your boyfriend to be attracted to you after you’ve gained weight. Also, it was absolutely unnecessary to tell her that she has “put on the equivalent of a 5-year-old child” or that she has gone up “a tent size.” I think what needed to be said was this: “Dear FWAD, A woman’s sex appeal has more to do with her confidence than her waist size. A woman, no matter what her size, is infinitely more attractive if she truly loves herself and how she looks. If your boyfriend can’t appreciate you as you are, he’s not worth it. Many men find curves on a woman to be highly attractive and desirable. The more you love yourself, the more others will as well! —Voice Of Compassion It sounds so higher consciousness to say inner beauty is what really matters, but in the real world, you don’t spot somebody at party and want to rip their clothes off because they look like the type to sweep an old lady’s walk or read to the blind. Because I give advice for the real world, I told this woman the truth: Male sexuality is highly visual, and male lust usually has a weight limit. At a certain point, “more of me to love” becomes “way too much of me to lust after.” Of course, it’s the height of political incorrectitude to advise a fat woman that she’d be more attractive if she lost weight, or even to call her fat. She’s just “differently weighted,” a “person of width!” And sure, those would be appropriate ways to refer to this woman if her fatness were a birth defect, or if she came down with conjunctive fatty-itis. But, like most people who are fat, she doesn’t have a thyroid condition or “metabolic issues”; she just neglected to close her mouth when her hands were full of Ho Hos. When a woman snacks herself up 40 pounds and her boyfriend’s refusing to touch her, about the last thing she needs to hear is “Confidence is sexy!” Trust me, her girlfriends are already reassuring her, “It’s okay, you have a really pretty face” (while thinking that they’re having a little trouble finding her face in all that fat). It’s easier to say whatever makes somebody

feel good in the moment, but that only prolongs their misery. It’s kinder to tell the truth, in stark terms—that the pot they see at the end of their rainbow is actually the kind that flushes. They can choose to change or accept the consequences, but at least they’re clear on the consequences; in this case, that keeping the weight probably means losing the boyfriend and having a really hard time landing another. Yes, there are many men who “find curves on a woman to be highly attractive and desirable,” but not a whole lot who feel the same way about folds.

GRIME AND PUNISHMENT My friends are slobs. They have huge, overflowing recycling piles, several-dayold plates of crusty food in various rooms, heaps of dirty laundry, random nails and screwdrivers across the floor from unfinished projects, and dirt and dead bugs behind small appliances in their kitchen. They also have a newborn baby. Aside from the mess, they’re excellent parents, but if Child Services ever showed up, I’m certain they’d take the kid. Should I say something? –Concerned Just because they’re slobs doesn’t mean they’ll let the kid crawl through a field of rusty nails (on his way to lick all the outlets and get his little fist around Baby’s First Oxycodone). It is possible that their protective parent hard-wiring will fire up, and they’ll make their place more “shabby chic” than “recently ransacked.” In case they don’t, you and a few friends could offer your collective help to “babyproof” the home (“babyproof” being easier on the ego than “Why not just give the kid a nail gun to play with and be done with it?”) On the bright side, being too clean (I’m talking to you, Purell freaks) might negatively affect a child’s defenses against pathogens. According to behavioral ecologist Marlene Zuk, kids with pets, kids who go barefoot, and kids living on farms get sick less and have a lower incidence of allergies and asthma. Unfortunately, researchers have yet to find evidence that snacking on wood glue or teething on a variety of Phillips-head screwdrivers bolsters the immune system.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny ARIES (March 21-April 19): All but one of our planet’s mountain ranges have been mapped: the Gamburtsev Mountains, which are buried under 2.5 miles of ice in Antarctica. Recent efforts to get a read on this craggy landscape, aided by a network of seismic instruments, have revealed some initial details about it, including its role in forming the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. I recommend that you regard the Gamburtsevs as an iconic metaphor in the coming months, Aries. They’ll be an apt symbol for one of your life’s featured themes: the discovery and exploration of a massive unknown territory that has been hidden from view. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s my opinion that everyone has a duty to periodically check in with themselves to make sure they still are who they say they are. Over time, there’s a tendency for all of us to fall into the habit of believing our own hype. We get entranced by the persona we project. We’re tempted to keep capitalizing on our past accomplishments in ways that lull us into complacency and give us unconscious permission to stop growing. You, Taurus, are in no worse danger of doing this than any of the rest of us. But the coming weeks will be an excellent time, astrologically speaking, for you to do an intensive check-in. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The odds are higher than usual that you’ll encounter a future soul brother or soul sister in the coming weeks. Potential allies are gravitating toward you, even if neither they nor you are aware of it yet. You’re also likely to brush up against a tribe or team you could benefit from knowing more about. That’s why I’m counseling you to be extra open to meeting people you don’t know. Talk to strangers. Ask your friends to introduce you to their friends. And consider the possibility of skipping over the customary social formalities so you can reveal some of the core truths about who you are right from the start.



CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sci-fi author Neil Gaiman sometimes invites his readers to get involved in his creative process. While working on the story “Metamorpho,” for example, he Twittered, “Trying to decide if broccoli is funnier than kohlrabi in a list of vegetables.” When a number of fans suggested “rutabaga” instead, he took their suggestion. (Thanks to The New Yorker for that report.) I’d like to borrow Gaiman’s approach, as you’re entering a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll have maximum power to shape your own destiny. So here’s my question: What accomplishment would you like your horoscope to say you will complete by May 15? Email me at Truthrooster@gmail.com.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): From the 9th to the 15th century, the Khmer empire thrived in what is now Cambodia. Its rulers were regarded as deities who had privileges that common folk didn’t have—as well as special responsibilities. For example, each god-king was expected, according to custom, to engage in sexual relations with a sacred nine-headed serpent every single night, whether he was in the mood or not. (An actual human being usually served as a proxy for the magic snake.) I suspect you may get an inkling of the god-king’s double-edged situation in the coming week, Leo. On the one hand, you’re likely to be presented with the possibility of experiencing uncommonly interesting pleasure. On the other hand, there may be an obligatory quality to it—a slightly oppressive pressure that is fully blended with the bliss.

ADVERTISING DIRECTOR



VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): According to the oracular priestess at the ancient Greek shrine of Delphi, whom I consulted in my dream last night, your code phrases for the week are “luminous shadow” and “hidden light.” That was the gist of her entire message; she didn’t provide any more practical clues. But here are some ways I might interpret her prophecy if I were you: What dark place in your life might soon shine forth with a new radiance? Or: What secret beauty is aching to be found? Or: What odd asset have you been concealing for no good reason?

Independent Publishing, publishers of the Missoula Independent and Montana Headwall, a new quarterly outdoor recreation magazine, seeks a professional, highly motivated Advertising Director. The successful candidate will be responsible for motivating, coaching and inspiring our dynamic sales team. In addition, you’ll be tasked with handling several house accounts and bringing in new business from high-profile local, regional and national accounts. We’d prefer at least 5 years of ad sales management experience, but we’re open to being convinced that your unique and impressive mix of skills is a good fit for our needs.



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In my role as moral sentinel, I strongly urge you not to watch “Telephone,” the music video by Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. It epitomizes everything that’s crazy-making about our culture: brilliantly executed, gorgeous to behold, and perversely seductive, even though its subject matter is degrading, demoralizing, and devoid of meaning. In my role as a kick-ass educator, however, I encourage you to watch the video at least once. I think you’d benefit from seeing such an explicit embodiment of the crazy-making pressures you’ll be wise to avoid exposing yourself to in the coming weeks. You can find it at tinyurl.com/ycx6p34 or tinyurl.com/ycvkkdz.



SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Most of the time, life does not talk to you,” writes Robert T. Kiyosaki in his book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. “It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying, ‘Wake up. There’s something I want you to learn.’” Different people respond in different ways, Kiyosaki says. “Some just let life push them around. Others get angry and push back. But they push back against their boss, or their job, or their husband or wife. They do not know it’s life that’s pushing.” I’m here to tell you, Scorpio, that what he says is particularly apropos for you right now. And I hope that you will neither allow yourself to get pushed around nor blame the wrong source for the push. Instead, make yourself available to learn the lesson that life’s nudging you to pay attention to. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): NASA scientist Richard Gross believes that the recent 8.8 earthquake in Chile was so strong that it shifted the planet’s axis and shortened the length of the day. The amounts were relatively small—three inches and 1.26 microseconds—but it was enough to make “the Earth ring like a bell.” I predict a somewhat comparable seismic shift for you in the coming weeks. The main difference is that yours will not be generated by a painful jolt but rather by a breakthrough that’s half smart and half lucky.



CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In a library in Warsaw, there is a 1,000+-page memoir written by my great-great-great-great grandfather, Leon Dembowski, a close advisor to the last king of Poland. Someday I’ll make a pilgrimage over there, photocopy that family heirloom, bring it back to America, and have it translated into English. The task I envision for you in the coming weeks, Capricorn, has a certain resemblance to mine. I think you will have the chance to uncover a wealth of material about where you came from, but it’ll take a lot of footwork and reinterpretation.



AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There’s no need for you to get a t-shirt that says, “Oh no, not another learning experience.” According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you are not about to have an embarrassing stumble that could in retrospect be euphemistically referred to as a “learning experience.” On the contrary, the educational events you’ll be communing with will be pretty pleasurable, and will more closely resemble a hop, skip, and a jump than a stumble.



PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’m inclined to prophesy that in the days to come, you may be able to read the minds of people whose actions are critical to your success. I also suspect that you will know exactly what to do in order to banish a minor health problem. I’m even tempted to believe that when you gaze into the mirror you will be more intrigued than you’ve been in a while. Have you ever heard a bird sing a song just for you? Did you ever find a small treasure you assumed was lost forever? Developments like those are in the works. There’s only one catch: To get the most out of this grace period, you will have to summon more faith in yourself than you usually do.

This amount includes the outstanding principal balance of $67,173.02, plus accrued interest, accrued late charges,

Because of the defaults stated above, Beneficiary has elected to sell the Property to satisfy the Loan and has instructed Successor Trustee to commence sale proceedings. Successor Trustee will sell the Property at public auction on the front steps of the Missoula County Courthouse, 200 West Broadway, Missoula, MT 59802, City of Missoula on May 17, 2010 at 11:00 AM, Mountain Time.

Pups just don't come any cuter than Kodiak! His owner simply couldn't care for him anymore, but she had only good things to say about him. He's happy, loving, gets along with other dogs, and is already almost housebroken.

RUFUS

Rufus put on his solemn face for his picture, but he's usually quite a happy, smiling young guy. He's full of energy, but not so hyper that he's hard to handle. We like that combination!

PENELOPE

Penelope is a friendly young dog who loves people and really wants a home of her own again. She's a great medium size, and we know there must a family out there who would be just perfect for her.

DUCE

Duce is an older dog as far as years are concerned, but when it comes to being lively and playful, he's just a youngster. We know he's a Pointer, but he really loves to fetch (and always drops the ball right at your feet) so that he acts more like a Retriever! Help us nourish Missoula Donate now at

SHADOW

Shadow has had some serious rotten luck lately. First his housemate Daisy and he were brought to us. Then he was adopted, but only for a few days. Due to a family emergency, and through no fault of his own, he was returned, crushed dreams and all!

2420 W Broadway

Loki was left behind when his owner had to go into a nursing home, and now he's looking for a retirement home of his own. He's a mellow older guy who loves gentle attention and would, in fact, be perfect for an older person.

The shelter staff unanimously agree, this is one heck of a cute dog! B.B. is supposedly a Shih-Tzu/Rottweiler X, and I hate to say it, but that's sort of what he looks like! Whether with his irresistible underbite, scruffy curly coat, or just his happy-go-lucky bounce, B.B. will win over your heart for sure!

RICK

The other cats in Rick's family were too much for this gentle guy, and he ended up spending most of his time under the bed. He's looking for a quiet one-cat household, and part of his adoption fee has been sponsored to help him find it.

DAISY

Daisy and Shadow are both middle aged, friendly, housetrained dogs that should be enjoying their prime in a home with a loving family. Instead they are homeless. It would be so easy to bring home one of these two! Flowers for every bride. Affordable flowers with an artistic flair. The Flower Bed Behind Vann's Appliances in the old yellow church building.

Know the Story, Not Just the Numbers By Brint Wahlberg, 2010 MOR President During a market transition, there can be a tendency to try to simplify what is happening, and perhaps more importantly, whose fault it is. Many homeowners who held onto hope that their property values would continue to escalate at double-digit percentage points now recognize that those gains are a thing of the past. And buyers who hope to find a market rich with desperate sellers and a sea of bargain properties are finding that is also not the case. The process generates questions from both sides as to why the reality doesn’t match the expectations. The answer lies in the market itself, the individual stories and circumstances of the buyers and sellers involved, as well as the laws of supply and demand. First, the market. In the Missoula urban area, the number of sales in 2008 compared to 2009 were dead even, with the median price slightly lower, from $215,000 in 2008 to $209,000 in 2009.

Those numbers show that the same number of people completed a transaction and that the distressed sales (short sales or sale of foreclosed properties) are not a large enough piece of the market to have a significant impact on the price. But numbers don’t tell the individual stories nor account for decisions based on the circumstances of the buyers and sellers involved. Regardless of the overall market activity, higher priced homes are still selling in our area. Have there been sales in which the seller decides, for whatever reason, to accept an offer that no amount of analysis would support? It happens. Be cautious about placing too much emphasis on the numbers until you know the story. That leads to supply and demand, good ol’ Econ 101. A high supply and low demand = lower prices. A low supply and high

demand = higher prices. When the prices get too high, demand drops off. As fewer of the higher priced homes sell, the supply increases, and the pendulum begins to swing. Sellers who want their home to sell for more than buyers are willing and able to pay, and buyers who want to acquire a home for less than the seller is willing to accept, will both be frustrated and disappointed. Doing a careful analysis of the numbers, taking into account price range, neighborhood, and a host of other factors, will likely lessen the disappointment. The old adage about real estate that the three most important factors are “location, location, location,” might have to be adjusted for today’s market to be “location, stories, market reality.” For about 1,000 people in Missoula last year, the combination worked.
