Defending trappers

Asked outside of Bernice’s Bakery on Monday morning.

Q:

Last week the University of Montana discussed the possibility of switching to a four-day workweek. Are you for or against the proposal, and why? Follow-up: How would you react if your employer suggested a similar switch?

Shelby Cunliffe: Ten-hour days are really long. It’s hard to exert all that energy in one day and then come home and put energy into your own life. Rollin’ with it: Ten-hour days would be a lot at La Parrilla. That’d be hard. It’s not worth it. My job is so relaxed as it is I’d rather work five days a week.

Betsy Schluge: It doesn’t make sense to me to shut down the school for three days. It should be accessible and open to students. No matter: As long as I got paid the same amount of money and had the same hours per week I would be okay with it.

Kyle Silvey: Yes, I think it would be better. I worked fulltime and went to school. A longer weekend would have been better so you had more time to do what you needed to do. Done and done: Oh yes, of course! I’d love to work four-10s and have a three-day weekend. Two days off is too short.

Gung ho on Falun Gong

Gabrielle Ulrich: Absolutely a four-day workweek! That means more family time. For the children: I’m unemployed, but if my husband worked four days it would be ideal because we’d have three-day weekends with the kids.

Wildlife managers are often confronted by the public when coyotes, wolves and mountain lions kill or wound their pets. They are called when beavers cut down trees, dam creeks, flood roads and driveways. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) often calls in a local trapper for help. Currently there are two federal trappers for five local counties. Without the help of licensed trappers, the FWP might not be able to handle all of the wildlife conflicts. It makes sense to charge trappers for licenses and to regulate them at no cost to the taxpayer (see “Political trap” in Letters, March 18, 2010). Trapping nuisance animals is a service that local trappers often do for free. There has been misinformation presented that trappers aren’t regulated. This is false. There happens to be about 100 regulations in the 2008-2009 Montana trapping and hunting regulations, some of which are species specific. Behind these regulations are fines for violations and revoked licenses. Another fallacy is the idea that traps are set indiscriminately, leaving some people to believe that pets are in danger. The trappers I know own dogs and take them trapping with no intention of putting their pet at risk. The real dangers to wildlife are loss of habitat due to urban sprawl and development of farms and ranches. That is why there are organizations like Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, National Wildlife Federation and Furbearers United. Montana has more public land than most states and sound management policies need to stay intact. Hunters and trappers learn more about wildlife than most people. They are out there looking at tracks and sign. Big game, predators and furbearers are primarily nocturnal; hence an illusion of not being present. Collectively, hunters and trappers know what is out there and help biologists with information, volunteering surveys about sightings and harvest numbers. Trappers are a resource to the public for disease control and animal nuisance reduction. Bert Wustner Lolo

I would like to thank Rep. Denny Rehberg for voting for House Resolution 605, which passed with a landslide vote of 412–1 last week and calls for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. This resolution calls upon the Chinese regime “to immediately cease and desist from its campaign to persecute, intimidate, imprison, and torture Falun Gong practitioners, to immediately abolish the 6-10 office, an extrajudicial security

apparatus given the mandate to ‘eradicate’ Falun Gong.” It also expresses sympathy to Falun Gong practitioners and their family members who have suffered persecution, intimidation, imprisonment, torture and even death for the past decade solely because of adherence to their personal beliefs. Levi Browde, executive director of the Falun Dafa Information Center stated, “It is important not to underestimate the realworld impact that this resolution will have. First, by articulating the official position of the U.S. Congress, a leader in the free world, it sets an example for policymakers around the globe to follow. Second, it will bring meaningful hope to millions suffer-

ing persecution and encourage further nonviolent efforts to end abuses. Moreover, its exposure of Communist Party fabrications and assertion of solidarity with the victims will give pause to would-be persecutors.” Katherine Combes Kalispell

Praising pilot project During his recent visit to Montana, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack praised Sen. Jon Tester’s forest bill and expressed his support for the legislation as a pilot project (see “etc.,” March 11, 2010). As a supporter of the bill I’m glad to see these two decision-makers reach common ground. The idea of Tester’s bill as a pilot project makes a lot of sense to me. The bill is groundbreaking because it advances new ideas for timber harvest and restoration. I think they’re good ideas, but they’re also new ideas and new ideas do require some trust. The bill has a clear and finite time frame and it applies to well-defined forest areas here in Montana. There is also built-

in monitoring and assessment, necessary features of any smart experiment. Change takes courage because we don’t know what it’s going to look like when the dust settles. Thanks to Secretary Vilsack for coming to Montana and honoring our senator’s vision for conservation and restoration on public lands. Neva Larson Lolo

Sweet emotion The emotions and excitement surrounding Sen. Tester’s Forest Jobs and Recreation Act definitely reflects how much we care about our public lands. My hope is that our common passion will guide our dialogue. Many aspects of this bill are troubling to me. During his campaign Tester pledged to carry on the tradition of Lee Metcalf, yet this proposed bill would release over a million acres of currently protected roadless forest. I worked all last summer in the West Pioneers so this compromise in the bill hits close to home. The compromise is partially to gain wilderness. This would be great, but the islands of wilderness proposed in the bill lack in biodiversity, varied elevation, protected corridors and buffers to preserve fragile ecosystems. I feel that these areas fall quite short of the areas envisioned by the 1964 Wilderness Act The most troubling aspect of the bill, however, is the unprecedented requirement of 7,000 acres of “treatment” on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge. “Treatment” could take many forms, but the bill does not provide any money for these different types of “treatment.” With limited funding I think it is realistic to assume that the vast majority of those 7,000 acres will be logged. The historical average for logging in the BeaverheadDeerlodge is around 3,200 acres. More worrying than the amount of timber is the fact that it is set at a required amount. This dictate undermines the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and takes management away from the Forest Service. Logging is necessary and fine, but should continue to be handled by the Forest Service who can accurately assess the impact of such projects. Passing this bill would set the dangerous precedent of required quotas for extraction. Maybe Sen. Rockefeller of West Virginia will catch on and decide that 7,000 tons of coal should be required of the Appalachians—sorry Forest Service, this is now Congress’ decision. The impacts of this bill are much further reaching than our backyard and I believe that no amount of wilderness is worth their cost. Jonathan Morgan Missoula

Camaree N. Fellon, 22, a University of Montana student, pleads guilty in Ravalli County District Court to attacking her boyfriend’s home near Darby with a hatchet and a .45-caliber pistol in January. After the two argued about Fellon’s messy dog, according to court documents, Fellon shot up and hacked away at walls, windows and a refrigerator.

• Thursday, March 25 Brent Arthur Wilson, 53, accused of stealing a Polson-area home in foreclosure, and representing himself, tells District Judge Kim Christopher that “you are not God,” prompting Christopher to send Wilson back to jail and order a mental health evaluation. Wilson allegedly broke into a $300,000 house and changed the locks.

• Friday, March 26 U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy sentences Jim Cnockaert, 54, a former sports editor at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, to three years in federal prison for possessing child pornography. The Chronicle fired Cnockaert last spring after discovering that he used an office computer to access child pornography sites.

• Saturday, March 27 To overcome what it calls “an unprecedented level of obstruction in the Senate,” the Obama administration announces that the president will appoint 15 nominees to administration positions during Congress’ recess. Among them is Missoulian Michael Punke, whom Obama nominated last September to be U.S. ambassador to the World Trade Organization.

Four-day talk all Q, no A

A pickup truck carrying five Helena-area teenagers slams into an embankment killing them all. None of the passengers—three males and two females, including a brother and sister—were wearing seat belts. Police say speed was a factor, and that alcohol and drugs might have been, too.

It’s the latest legal setback for Revett Minerals Inc. as it seeks to extract up to 10,000 tons of silver and copper ore daily for 35 years from the mine south of Libby.

• Tuesday, March 30 University of Montana student Eric Franklin Rauner, 21, appears in court after allegedly attempting to steal prescription drugs from Walgreens on North Reserve Street Monday. Police say Rauner handed a note to an employee at the drive-through window demanding prescription drugs. But the employee called 911 and Rauner drove off empty-handed.

Carlo’s One Night Stand

Taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather, Pat Gould leads a pack string around the drawn-down Gibson Reservoir on March 28. The packers were heading into the Bob Marshall Wilderness “for a week or so,” Gould said.

Last Friday’s public forum with the University of Montana’s Four Day Work Week Task Force proved all questions and no answers for nearly 100 faculty, staff and students anxious to learn how a condensed workweek might impact their personal and professional lives. For more than an hour, task force co-chairs Chris Comer and Rosi Keller surrendered the floor to query after query—concerns over the impact on employees with small children, questions about the effects on local businesses that employ students with already demanding schedules. The task force’s inability to offer anything but nods only added to the sentiment that the cons of a shortened workweek far outweigh the pros. Skepticism hasn’t stopped UM President George Dennison from making the study a high priority. Dennison first announced the proposal for a four-day workweek in January, and has asked the task force to complete a final report by May outlin-

ing how the move can decrease energy costs and reduce UM’s carbon footprint. “My guess is we’re responding to this in part because the state has some fiscal issues and they would like all agencies connected to the state to be gathering savings as quickly as possible,” Comer says. But the task force announced during the forum that, despite the $450,000 estimate offered earlier this year, it still has no idea what the annual savings—if any—would be. Comer says the preliminary estimate is an “outside boundary” at best, and further study over the next few weeks should reveal how UM stands to benefit. Dennison’s proposal didn’t sit well with campus employees even before Friday’s forum. Doug Collins with the University Faculty Association says there’s virtually no support for the change among faculty, referring to the four-day workweek as a “dubious proposition.” Kathy Crego, assistant director of the Montana Public Employees Association, adds the lack of information is taking a toll on union members. She’s been inundated with questions, none of which she—or those in charge of the

study—can answer. “Everything seems to be kind of a wait-andsee,” Crego says, “which is creating a lot of stress among employees about the uncertainty of what’s going to happen.” Alex Sakariassen

Blackfoot River

Permitting put on ice Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has officially shelved a proposed recreational permit system for the Blackfoot River, eliminating, for now, a restrictive yet valuable backup plan for managing overcrowding on the popular waterway. The decision didn’t come lightly, says FWP Regional Park Manager Lee Bastian. Widespread protest from the Ovando community last fall— dozens of public comments and a 105-signature petition—prompted the agency to drop the framework for a permit system from its final Blackfoot River Recreation Management Plan released in March. Bastian says much of the concern centered

on the economic consequences of limiting access to local fishing and floating opportunities. “It was loud and clear they were not comfortable with it,” Bastian says. But the greatest motivator for back-burnering the permit proposal came from within the agency itself. Bastian says FWP lacked the recreational data needed to back its pitch, and has made collecting that information a top concern for management officials over the next two years. “Based on what that data tells us, we may find ourselves here in a couple of years having to go down that road and actually look at what sort of a permit system would go in place,” Bastian says. “But this time we would have the data in hand.” Other agencies with interests on the Blackfoot recognize the potential need for a permit system if the resource becomes too stressed. FWP and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which is preparing to launch a resource management plan study of its own this spring, have escalated their presences on the river over the past decade in response to increased traffic. If the situation reaches a trigger point, the permit proposal could be put back on the table. “That’s still a tool they have available to them,” says BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Dick Fichtler. “It hasn’t gone away, it just isn’t provided for at this time.” Bastian just hopes that, should that day come, FWP has the evidence it needs to convince the public. “We’re wanting to do the right thing,” Bastian says, “but we need good information to do it.” Alex Sakariassen

Wildlife

Hungry bears emerge The young female, known as F26, lumbered from her Marshall Canyon den northeast of Missoula on March 1 to become the first of nine GPS-collared urban black bears to emerge from hibernation this spring. “She’s been just kind of moping around for the last month or so,” says University of Montana graduate student Jerod Merkle, who is tracking the bears in an attempt to predict bear conflicts in town. F26 was joined on March 10 by an adult male denned in the Rattlesnake, and then by an adult female five days later. Merkle suspects the rest of

them—and Missoula area bears in general—will be back out and foraging by the end of April. All of Merkle’s nine bears were originally captured in people’s yards. Over the course of Merkle’s three-year research project with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Merkle has analyzed 900 conflicts and captured 25

bears, but this spring marks the first time he will be able to track so many as they come out of hibernation. “Some bears that are more habituated and hooked on human foods will come out of their dens and head straight to town,” he says. “[But] every bear is different.” According to Merkle, conflicts usually occur in places that feature three environmental factors urban bears prefer: water, large forested areas and home densities of about two per acre. Those findings hold true for James Jonkel, FWP’s bear manager in Missoula, who says he’s received calls this spring of bears ransacking bird feeders, chicken feed and garbage cans in the Rattlesnake and Ninemile areas. Jonkel says that weather plays a large role in when bears move to lower elevations looking for food, and humans can prepare for summer bear activity by bringing bird feeders, pet food and garbage inside before they can attract unwanted guests. “Every week now we’ll see a few more emerging,” Jonkel says. “Now is the time people need to start thinking about it.” Kyle Lehman

Health care

Bill a boon for Libby One of the so-called “special deals” inserted into the health care reform legislation signed by President Obama last week will provide Medicare coverage to victims of asbestos poisoning in Libby. But Sen. Max Baucus, who as one of the main architects of the legislation included the provision, says it’s not a special deal at all. Rather, it fulfills a commitment made three decades ago to victims of public health emergencies across the country. “In 1980, Congress went through a comprehensive and transparent process to pass a law on the federal response to environmental disasters,” Baucus said in a statement. “[The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act] said that the federal government has a responsibility to clean up those disasters, and in the worst cases, the federal government has a responsibility to provide screening and medical care to the victims.” Libby is the worst case. Last June, the Environmental Protection Agency designated the Libby Superfund site as the agency’s first-ever public health emergency, promising millions of dollars to clean up asbestos released by the former W.R. Grace vermiculite mine. An initial $6 million U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant was sent to Libby in November to provide treatment and health care screenings for its residents. The Baucus provision in the new health care law effectively extends that grant. Kimberly Rowse, clinical coordinator at Libby’s Center for Asbestos Related Disease, lauds Baucus’ effort to provide health care for communities around the country designated as Superfund sites. “Libby is kind of the pilot test to develop the model,” Rowse says, “with the idea that in the future this model can be reproduced in other situations.” Even U.S. Rep Denny Rehberg, who staunchly opposed the new health care reform law, defends the Libby provision. “Libby has waited long enough,” says Rehberg spokesman Jed Link, “and their inclusion in the bill is certainly warranted as a medical situation.” It’s unclear when victims of asbestos poisoning in Libby can expect Medicare benefits to begin.

BY THE NUMBERS

etc.

Remember in early February when Anthem Blue Cross of California announced that its health insurance rates would rise as much as 39 percent, and it emboldened lawmakers working to pass health care reform? Well, we hope the recent emergence of the bigoted “Not My Bathroom” (NMB) campaign has a similar effect on our local leaders. Last week, NMB launched an effort to defeat the Missoula City Council’s proposed anti-discrimination law that includes sexual orientation and gender identity. NMB is led by self-appointed moral arbiters Tei Nash and Dallas Erickson. Erickson, a Stevensville-based founder of Help Our Moral Environment, or HOME, regularly confronts perceived social iniquities including pornography, obscenity and gays. And now he’s targeting transgender people. Erickson’s group shamelessly argues that the anti-discrimination ordinance, which honors gender expression regardless of an individual’s sex at birth, would open public bathrooms to sexual offenders aiming to take advantage of Missoula’s vulnerable women and children. An NMB letter poses such a scenario: “Can you imagine the mischief at our public schools where male teachers could go in the little girls’ room and teenagers, just by saying they are the other gender, could use the opposite sex bathrooms? What teenage boy with hormones raging would not be tempted to try that one? There is no test to determine if the person is homosexual or has gender issues.” We chuckled, envisioning potty police raiding restrooms to check for tangible evidence of gender. But we didn’t laugh long. It’s appalling that NMB portrays men who express feminine gender identities as scheming sexual predators. Transgender people already use public bathrooms. And according to city attorney Jim Nugent, it’s completely legal for a man to use a woman’s restroom and vice versa. NMB’s paranoid claims (sort of like the health care reform being called a socialist plot to kill your grandmother) distort the ordinance’s real focus, which is to ensure that all people have equal access to the same opportunities. What a concept. It’s currently legal in Montana to fire someone from a job because of sexual orientation. It’s also legal to deny housing or services to a transgender person. That’s wrong. How ironic that NMB’s small-minded fear mongering gives City Council a perfect, if repugnant, example of why the anti-discrimination ordinance is so necessary.

In a perplexing turn of events, Gov. Brian Schweitzer told local governments this week that if they want federal stimulus funds already appropriated by the Legislature, they must sign a statement supporting development of the Otter Creek coal tracts. The move, which has no precedent in recent memory and is likely to spawn numerous lawsuits over its legality, has left lawmakers, local elected officials and citizens wondering what Schweitzer is thinking. The complex tale requires some understanding of the background of both the bill that appropriated the federal stimulus funds and the constitutional requirements for disposition of revenues from school trust lands such as the Otter Creek tracts. As most Montanans know, last year Congress appropriated hundreds of millions of dollars to be spent by state and local governments to create jobs. The goal was simple—to try to address the highest levels of unemployment and biggest economic crash since the Depression by putting people back to work on local infrastructure projects. The term “shovelready� was widely used to describe projects that could be started almost immediately to put people to work. Schweitzer accepted the federal funds and, as required by Montana’s constitution, the Legislature passed a bill, HB 645, to appropriate the funds across the state. Moreover, since the goal was to immediately create jobs, the funds were to be spent by September 30 this year or they would revert back to the state’s general fund. Once the Legislature sends a bill to the governor, he or she can veto the measure, sign it into law, send it back to the Legislature with amendments, or allow it to become law without signing it. Schweitzer chose to issue a line-item veto of several of the bill’s provisions prior to signing it into law. In his May 2009 letter, Schweitzer closed with this sentence: “Now it is time for me to continue with the business of running the executive branch of government within the policy and budget framework the Legislature established for the State of Montana for the next two years.� As most Montanans also know, the somewhat rosy revenue projections for the state did not meet expectations and created a budgetary shortfall triggering the governor’s authority to reduce state spending by up to 10 percent without legislative approval. To this end, the governor’s budget office prepared recommendations for agency spending cuts but, significantly, did

not include the stimulus projects contained in HB 645. Nonetheless, and contrary to his statement that he would run the executive branch “within the policy and budgetary framework the Legislature established,� Schweitzer unilaterally decided to direct the Department of Commerce to withhold

development.

stimulus funding for a number of projects already approved by the Legislature. Besides raising hackles across the state, this action prompted Sen. Dan McGee, RBillings, to request a legal opinion from Greg Petesch, the Legislature’s director of legal services. In his opinion Petesch outlines the stimulus bill’s provisions in detail and concludes: “Because there is no statutory basis for withholding funds if the local governments have submitted correct and complete applications, then withholding the funds appears to be an arbitrary and capricious action and an abuse of discretion by the Department that is unconstitutionally violative of substantive due process under Article II, section 17, of the Montana Constitution.� In simpler terms, Schweitzer’s actions may be both illegal and unconstitutional. This week, the tale took a bizarre turn when Schweitzer told Missoula County Commissioners that if they want their stimulus funds, they’ll have to sign a letter sup-

porting development of Otter Creek, a pristine river valley in southeastern Montana that will be strip-mined for coal to be shipped by a yet-to-be-built railroad to prospective customers in Asia, where it is likely to be burned in conventional thermal power plants. But here’s the rub: There’s absolutely no connection between the federal stimulus funds and Otter Creek. None. Yet Schweitzer is holding stimulus funds hostage to gain support for coal development and blurring the lines between those funds and the $85 million in “bonus bid� money the state expects to receive from Otter Creek. Once again, it appears Schweitzer’s actions are potentially illegal and unconstitutional, since the bonus money is “interest and income� from school trust lands. As Greg Petesch wrote: “Article X, Sec. 5 of the Montana Constitution requires that 5 percent of the Otter Creek bonus money must be deposited in the public school fund and the remaining 95 percent of the money must be deposited in the guarantee account for state equalization aid pursuant to section 20-9-342, MCA. The Otter Creek bonus money may not be spent on the county, city, and town projects funded through HB 645.� Schweitzer’s actions have left local officials hopping mad and wondering what he’s trying to do. Schweitzer, dubbed the “Coal Cowboy� by east-coast media, hangs his hat on coal development, and proved committed to leasing Otter Creek coal no matter how controversial it became. The state Land Board, made up of the state’s five top elected officials and chaired by Schweitzer, split 3-2 in their approval to lease the coal for a bonus bid of 15-cents a ton, a figure some say is far below its true value. Public sentiment, if last week’s unscientific poll in the Helena Independent Record is any measure, runs 75 percent against the decision. And, of course, the impacts of global warming are eminently visible in western Montana, with an estimated 2 million acres of dead, beetlekilled trees. Governor Schweitzer likes to call himself “Montana’s CEO.� But Montana is not a corporation. Schweitzer is the elected head of only one of three branches of government intentionally meant to provide checks and balances against the abuse of power by any one branch. It would be prudent for the governor to remember that. Helena’s George Ochenski rattles the cage of the political establishment as a political analyst for the Independent.

Checking it twice Climate change prompts a nature lover’s bucket list by Tim Lydon

Lately, I’ve been struggling to stay positive about the climate. It’s not easy. The 190 nations at the November summit in Copenhagen failed to reach agreement on greenhouse gases, and the U.S. Congress seems determined to avoid the issue. Worst of all, polls show cooling anxiety about climate change among Americans; these days, we are too consumed by economic woes. And so, I’ve decided to create my own “bucket list” for the West. A bucket list usually tallies what a person would like to experience before kicking the bucket, as made famous in the eponymous 2007 movie. I can’t put it off much longer: With climate change rapidly degrading our landscape, I’m afraid time is running out for some of my favorite natural wonders. I’ll start in northern Alaska, home to the polar bear. Ursus maritimus tops my list even though the U.S. Geological Survey says it might not become extinct in Alaska for a few more decades. But U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service research reveals that disappearing sea ice is already causing nutritional stress, decreased weight and lower reproduction. In other words, the bears are getting smaller and fewer. The longer I wait, the less likely I am to see a big, healthy bear. Alaska’s walruses are also on my list. For ages, these giant marine mammals used floating ice to forage for shellfish. But nowadays, in a brand-new phenomenon, melting is forcing thousands of walruses ashore each autumn, like great mobs of refugees. Unfortunately, the animals lack legs and are not adapted to life on land, and stampedes leave hundreds dead, mostly youngsters. The gatherings also deplete nearby food. Federal biologists are considering protecting the walrus as an endangered species. I could probably do a whole bucket list for Alaska alone, ground zero for climate change. Caribou are also declining, fires are ravaging the boreal forest and dissolving permafrost is causing spectacular erosion and releases of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.

But there’s much to see elsewhere, such as Montana’s Glacier National Park, where some of our most iconic glaciers are rapidly melting. The National Park Service says they’ll be gone in as little as 10 years. Seeing them is another top priority, as it’s already becoming difficult to distinguish between the languishing glaciers and plain old snowfields.

With climate “change rapidly degrading our landscape, I’m afraid time is running out for some of my favorite natural

wonders.

Then there’s Yellowstone, where two natural wonders are at risk. The first is the whitebark pine, an until-now hardy tree that survived the last 10 millennia in one of the world’s harshest environments—the high-elevation Rockies. But warming winters have led to a mountain pine beetle epidemic. Whole mountain chains, where frigid winters once limited beetles, are now brown. And this is bad news for the next candidate on my list, Yellowstone’s storied grizzly bears. It turns out that grizzlies, especially pregnant females, rely on whitebark cones each autumn. They are the fattiest, highestin-protein thing going that time of year. Research shows that a poor whitebark crop correlates to low birth rates for bears and

high kill rates by humans. The concerns have put the already shaky population of Yellowstone grizzlies back on the endangered species list. Next up are the Colorado Rockies, where millions of lodgepole pines have already kicked the bucket from the same climate-related beetle epidemic that’s killing the whitebarks. Amazingly, the problem stretches hundreds of miles north through British Columbia. And it’s getting worse. In my former home of Summit County on Colorado’s Front Range, the forest has turned to matchsticks. Utah’s Lake Powell also made the list. In his recent book Dead Pool, James Lawrence Powell shows that by 2100, decreasing snow packs and heat-related evaporation may cause the level of the reservoir to drop below the dam’s lowest outlet, ending hydropower production and water diversion. It’s a poor harbinger for the Southwest, where climate change is predicted to make many areas unlivable, not just for golfers, but for saguaros, jaguars and black bears, too. Climate change threatens other Western icons, like Puget Sound’s orcas, most mid-elevation ski areas and the agricultural kingdom of California’s Central Valley, which is already stressed by warming. But my bucket list is not confined to within our borders. Burning fossil fuels is putting so much carbon dioxide into our oceans that they are acidifying. That’s killing the coral reefs, home to 30 percent of the world’s fish species, so snorkeling there is becoming a sooner-rather-than-later prospect. And with humans cutting down six Manhattans’worth of tropical rain forest every day, according to Conservation International, experiencing wild Amazonia is also something to consider doing now. What a long and deeply troubling list. Buckets, anyone? Tim Lydon is a contributor to Writers on the Range, a service of High Country News (hcn.org). He writes in Whitefish.

It’s difficult to imagine what it’s like for a combat veteran to return to civilian life. Thankfully, there are resources available to returning veterans, including Xsports4vets—a whitewater river boarding course slated to begin this summer that aims to teach vets from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan this high-intensity sport, while also facilitating their successful reintegration into society. Beginning in June, a group of vets will meet at the Alberton Gorge to get expert instruction on the water. They’ll then test out their skills with trips down the Lochsa River. Additionally, they’ll meet between sessions to talk about their experience on the river, and to hash out the problems they’ve faced during their transition back into civilian life.

Here’s how you can help: This week, Xsports4vets is spearheading a fundraiser for the program that features heel-kicking country music from Shane Clouse and Stomping Ground, along with a raffle. You can also do your part by bringing any used river gear to donate to the cause. Considering the sacrifices they’ve made for us, this event seems worthy of our support. —Ira Sather-Olson

CURSES, FOILED AGAIN - When Jonathon Michael Smith, 22, tried to buy a $28,000 pickup truck with a check, the manager of the Ford dealership in Fairbanks, Alaska, became suspicious. He checked with another car dealer and found Smith had used a forged check to buy a vehicle there. In fact, he’d used forged checks to buy two other trucks, all this year. According to court documents, Smith forged all four checks using copies he downloaded from an online blog. All the checks had blurry printing, inconsistent fonts and lacked routing and account numbers. Police Officer Jim O’Malley, who responded to the Ford dealership, already knew Smith and asked him what he was doing. He said Smith replied that he was “being stupid.” When Allen Nguyen, 22, tried to cash a winning $50 lottery ticket at a convenience store in Winter Haven, Fla., the clerk recognized him as the person who stole $70 worth of tickets the day before. The clerk asked for Nguyen’s driver’s license and gave the information to Polk County sheriff’s deputies, who arrested Nguyen. MENSA REJECT OF THE WEEK - When Alice French called her son, Brad, to help thaw a frozen water line under her trailer home in Silver Cliff, Colo., she mentioned having smelled propane a few days earlier. Brad French proceeded to use a weed burner to thaw the water line, sparking a fire that took firefighters 40 minutes to bring under control. “The underside of the trailer caught fire,” assistant fire chief Jerry Livengood said. “I suspect there was a propane leak under the trailer because Brad reported hearing a ‘whoosh’ immediately before the fire started.”

WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED - When a man watching Shutter Island at a theater in Lancaster, Calif., complained about a woman sitting near him using a cell phone, two men with her attacked the man. One of them stabbed him in the neck with a meat thermometer. Acting on a tip, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies arrested Landry Boullard, 39. Police in Iowa City arrested Nitasha Camilla Johnson, 20, who they said attacked her sister with a toilet tank lid. HOW GOVERNMENT WORKS - Although an Australian jobs tribunal agreed that an employer was justified in firing a long-time worker for repeated safety violations amounting to “relatively serious misconduct,” the panel also blamed the company because the man’s firing turned out to be “a disaster” for him. While helping clean a tank that filtered staples from recycled pulp at the Norske Skog Paper Mills in Albury, Paul Quinlivan had to be told four times to put his safety goggles back on. Fair Works Australia tribunal vice president Michael Lawler pointed out that Quinlivan, who worked at the mill for 20 years, was “a middle-aged man with very poor employment prospects for whom the dismissal has such serious personal and economic consequences.” The tribunal ordered the mill to rehire Quinlivan and give him $16,000 (US $14,600) as compensation.

FEMA paid twice what it might have to lease a facility in Tennessee that was dilapidated and full of potentially hazardous chemicals. A cleaning company told FEMA it would cost $1.2 million to clean it up. A report by the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General placed the blame on two federal officials who bypassed commercial real estate agents and websites and instead drove around Nashville in a car looking for vacant offices. When they found one, government inspectors sent to check out the building went at night, using flashlights because there was no electricity. FEMA paid $122,000 to rent the building for three months, during which someone had to watch the boiler “24/7 so it would not explode or crack.” The agency trucked in bottled water because tap water wasn’t drinkable, and sewage leaks frequently sent workers home early. One worker developed a rash that lasted the whole three months. Rooms next to the leased office were filled with debris, and some parts were roped off because of suspected chemical contamination. USE ’EM OR LOSE ’EM - Jim Kennedy, 46, has survived 18 months without a job by living on his frequent flier and hotel loyalty points. After getting kicked out of his condo in Newport Beach, Calif., the former IT and finance worker moved his belongings, including a 375-bottle wine collection, into a storage unit, put his clothes and day-to-day items in his leased BMW and began making the rounds of hotels. Part of the free rooms is free breakfasts, which he augments with microwave meals. He gets his unemployment checks at a Mailboxes Plus. Spending his days checking online job banks, Kennedy figures he has enough points to last another two months but realizes “I’m kind of running against time.” BAD MEDICINE - Massachusetts authorities accused former Fall River dentist Michael Clair of putting paper clips in patients’ mouths during root canals, then billing Medicaid for the stainless steel posts he claimed he was using. State prosecutors said that after Medicaid suspended Clair in 2002, he hired other dentists for his clinic and filed claims under their names. Thomas Alan Heugel, 56, performed circumcisions without a license, according to Michigan authorities, saying Heugel was fingered by his former boyfriend, who declared, “He needs to be taken off the streets.” A Kent County sheriff’s investigation found that Heugel told patients he was a doctor and performed circumcisions at his home in Sparta. “I don’t know what the attraction is,” sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Kelley said. “I don’t know, and the detective doesn’t know.” Neighbor Maria Horn, 53, said Heugel represented himself as an ordained minister, an emergency medical technician and had vehicles modified to look like vintage police cruisers. She said he began performing circumcisions, as well as ear piercings and removing skin tags. Six New Jersey women who had black-market surgery to enhance their buttocks wound up in the hospital because the injections contained a diluted version of builder-grade silicone. “The same stuff you use to put caulk around the bathtub,” said Steven M. Marcus, head of the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System, adding it’s quite different from medical silicone. Plastic surgeon Gregory Borah pointed out that using over-the-counter silicone could cause abscesses on the buttocks that resemble “a big zit.”

Local author Mark Matthews’ new book details America’s first hippie commune—and its co-founder, Missoula resident Gene Bernofsky

E

ugene Victor Debs Bernofsky made some vague mention of Drop City when I had interviewed him while on assignment for Audubon magazine in 2002. He told me he founded the nation’s first hippie commune with two fellow graduates from the University of Kansas (KU) in the spring of 1965. I mentioned the fact in the article but hadn’t thought to indulge in any fact checking at the time. During the same interview, Bernofsky also informed me he majored at KU in a scientific field called radiation biology or radiation biophysics—I don’t remember exactly. I never bothered to fact check that bit of information either. A few months after the Audubon piece appeared, I ran into Bernofsky on the street. When he began chuckling to himself, I asked what was up. He then confessed that he had laid a “dropping” on me during our interview. I asked what a dropping was. “Well, it’s something like this,” he said. “There is no such field of study at KU that I told you I had majored in.”

When I pressed for why he had lied to me, he answered: “People put too much emphasis on degrees and titles. I knew you would be more impressed if I told you I had majored in some esoteric scientific field, than if I had told you I had studied early childhood education. Interestingly enough, the alumni magazine at the University of Kansas phoned me for an interview after your article appeared in Audubon. They also wanted to write a story on me. They asked me the same question about my major, and I laid the same dropping on them. They mentioned the exact same imaginary field of study. Now that was a major dropping, considering they were writing about their own institution.” I continued running into Bernofsky from time to time, something not hard to do in Missoula. Bernofsky rode his bicycle everywhere—a hybrid street-and-mountain bike with a heavy durable frame and skinny tires. After retiring from the U.S. Postal Service he had begun to make documentary movies virtually from the seat of this bike, pedaling from Missoula to such far-flung realms as North Dakota and

He did, however, dress as casually as Moore—usually donning jeans, a white canvas shirt with frayed cuffs, and a ball cap that featured his own World Wide Films logo.

that he had already contacted the publisher to request a free copy since, he said, “I was the one who had founded the real Drop City.” The publisher complied, and Bernofsky later lent the novel to me. The plot of Boyle’s book alternates between two parallel storylines. One follows the paths of a young hippie couple and their cohorts who live at a commune in Sonoma County, Calif.; the other keeps track of a handful of survivalist homesteaders in Alaska. The young residents of the commune frequently walk about naked, have sex with multiple partners, get high on various drugs such as pot and LSD or get drunk on wine and beer, argue,

Sender, the first resident of an early commune located just outside Sebastapol, Calif., called the Morning Star Ranch. Boyle’s Sender character also promotes the original Morning Star philosophy of “LATWIDNO”—Land Access to Which Is Denied No One. Pam Hanna, a writer who once lived at Morning Star, described Boyle’s characterization of her community as a condemnatory cartoon from hell, the Zap comix version. She complained that “he takes snippets of actual lifestyles and happenings of the period, and weaves it into a complete fabrication and caricature, not readily apparent to anyone who

lark Richert, Bernofsky’s classmate at KU, always had a feeling the two droppers would stay connected. In fact, he dreamt about it. But after graduation, Richert moved to Boulder, Colo., and Bernofsky ended up in New York City— and then Africa, where he unsuccessfully tried to start his first commune. When Bernofsky returned stateside, his friend traveled to New York, and the two got to talking. “Comparing our visions,” Richert said, “we postulated synthesizing them and in a great moment of clarity agreed: Let’s do it. We would own the property, build A-frame houses, pay no rent, make

Drop City received considerable attention for its environmentally friendly geodesic domes. “This 40-foot diameter dome structure was constructed of culled 2x4s rejected by a nearby mill,” says commune co-founder Gene Bernofsky. “The mill let us have all the short ends we wanted for free, and we scabbed the shorts together to make a usable length for structures, sculptures, floors, furniture, fuel, etc.”

By the time I had met him, Bernofsky had already turned 60, his curly dark hair had thinned on top to form a thick bird’s nest around a goose egg-sized bald spot; and any grandmother would have enjoyed taking a stab at pinching his chubby cheeks. I never would have thought about supplementing the thousand words I had already written about Bernofsky for Audubon had it not been for novelist T.C. Boyle.

ne Sunday morning, during the winter of 2003, I came upon a review of Boyle’s newest novel, Drop City, in the Missoulian. The reviewer described the work as a satirical look at a hippie commune. The next time I ran into Bernofsky, I mentioned the review and he told me

fight, seemingly defecate behind every bush, and beg and bully money from visitors. They work as little as possible and show little artistic talent or initiative. Reading the book, there was one thing I couldn’t get out of my mind—I kept picturing Bernofsky in the role of the commune leader named Sender. I could imagine Bernofsky shucking and jiving the immigration officials at the Canadian border to distract them from searching the bus for drugs—just as the Sender character does. And I could imagine Bernofsky suggesting, like Sender, something just as romantic and ridiculous as relocating the commune to Alaska. Even though Boyle named his novel Drop City, the author seemingly knew nothing about Bernofsky. Instead, Boyle had allegedly based his commune leader, Norm Sender, on a certain Ramon

has not lived through and participated in the communal life of the era. Nowhere is there mention of the new social order attempted or the continuation of that social order in hundreds of communes that survive to the present time.” Ramon Sender also accused Boyle of misrepresenting the residents of Morning Star as “humorless, unrelentingly wasted and sad, with no redeeming qualities.” Bernofsky’s critique of the novel was terser: “It’s total bullshit. It was nothing like that.” I sensed a challenge in Bernofsky’s tone of voice. When I mentioned that people might be interested in reading about the real Drop City, Bernofsky looked at me and said: “It’s about time you recognized that. What do you think I’ve been hinting at for the last year? I’m surprised it took you so long to suggest it.”

films and art and as Gene put it, put our trust in dose Cosmic Forces.” But the cosmic forces did not indicate that the time was right and the two friends again parted without formulating a concrete plan. “In the back of our minds,” Richert continued, “we were all wondering: What do we do now? The only future I could see was graduation from the University of Colorado with an MFA degree—and then what?’’ During the remainder of the spring, Bernofsky sold marijuana in New York. “A few weeks later,” he said, “[my wife and I] decided to get into our car and drive around the West to find a rural piece of land where we could build a meaningful civilization. I had raised a couple of thousand dollars selling the last of the marijuana crop, and we took off for Montana.”

By going rural, and especially in heading west, Bernofsky bucked a trend being set by his contemporaries. Ever since World War I, rural Americans had continually migrated to the cities as technology wrought a sea change in farmer productivity. During the 1950s, the nation had lost more than 1.6 million farmers, and almost a million more during the 1960s, thanks to mechanization. A few months before Bernofsky’s departure, Time reported that the population drain was most pronounced in the West. “Fewer and fewer Americans, about one out of three, live in the great outdoors now celebrated almost entirely in never-ever television westerns,” the article stated. “In a curious miracle of abandonment, Americans have become strangers in a landscape that they believe has built their national character.” Montana had one of the smallest populations in the Lower 48 at the time, and the state still nurtures less than one million residents. Still, Bernofsky had little luck finding a home there. “We drove all over the state and we found some land for sale, but we would have had to buy hundreds of acres at a time at $20 an acre,” he said. “We couldn’t buy just five or 10 acres. We tried because we really loved the state. Our next stop was Colorado, where we stopped off at Clark’s house in Boulder. Clark and I again talked about finding a place where we could make things in peace and not be bothered. We again expressed our faith that the cosmic forces would generate enough income for us to

survive on. Clark said he’d be happy to help me look.” The two headed out on their search on a sunny day in early May. “I believe the idea was that we would head north to Missoula and buy land there,” Richert said, “but following intuition and half-baked leads, we gradually turned to the south.” The friends eventually drove almost to the border of New Mexico where the landscape grew drier and supported little vegetation beyond irrigated fields. They could see an occasional cottonwood tree standing guard in a draw where water ran periodically after a rain storm or after snow melted. After a while they pulled off the highway and tooled around the county gravel roads. Their circuitous route took them past the poor, Chicano, laid-back town of Trinidad, Colo. “We went through Trinidad,” Bernofsky said, “and were driving around in a rural area about 10 miles to the east, in the El Moro area. There was nothing there but an old Depression era adobe schoolhouse—all dirt roads, semi-arid desert, and rolling topography with some farmhouses. Where two dirt roads intersected, we saw a ‘For Sale’ sign. The farmer, Mr. Anderson, wanted to sell five acres where he used to run goats for $200 an acre. I offered one hundred and fifty an acre and told him I had the money right on me. I think the Andersons saw we were okay young people. They were very generous and offered to let us live in their farmhouse while we built our own house. We closed the deal that day and I bought the land.”

he date was May 3, 1965. During my early research of Drop City I discovered a slender paper trail that continually led back to this date. Sociologist Hugh Gardner designated that day’s transaction as the date that more or less begins the “hippie” era of modern communes. “In more ways than one the commune that was soon to sprout from the old goat pasture was an integral part of the birth of the counterculture,” he wrote in his book, The Children of Prosperity: Thirteen Modern American Communes. Others social scientists agreed. “Drop City brought together most of the themes that had been developing in other recent communities—anarchy, pacifism, sexual freedom, rural isolation, interest in drugs, art—and wrapped them flamboyantly into a commune not quite like any that had gone before,” wrote Timothy Miller, a historian of American religion at the University of Kansas. “Drop City thus represents the point at which a new type of commune building had definitively arrived. It was defiantly outrageous, proclaiming itself a whole new civilization, its members rejecting paid employment and creating wildly original funky architecture. It pioneered what soon became a widespread hippie love of integrated arts, creating multimedia extravaganzas, using color profusely, employing trash as source material, blending art with everything else in life.” Over the next decade the back-to-theland commune movement would expand to include at least 5,000 and possibly 10,000 rural communal retreats. Thousands of others would evolve in

towns and cities, especially where colleges were located. Sociologists estimate at least a half million young people would become temporarily associated with a communal enterprise—a scale Gardner described as “unprecedented in our history, involving more people and more organizations than all previous commune movements in America combined.” Bernofsky and Richert had no idea on that May day that they were vanguards of a cultural revolution. They certainly didn’t think of themselves as hippies, since that term had yet to be coined. They just knew that they wanted to save society from the military-industrial complex and the soul-deadening effects of capitalism and its obsession with the unending accumulation of material wealth. At that moment, the goat pasture in Colorado symbolized a refuge where they would be able to dedicate their time to intellectual and artistic creation.

or inspiration in naming the commune, Bernofsky and Richert went back to the radical performance art of their undergraduate days, when they had started dropping painted pebbles from the rooftop of the building on Massachusetts Avenue down to the sidewalk in Lawrence, Kansas. Once a dropper, always a dropper, and Drop City instinctively rolled off their tongues. “Those were the real roots of Drop City,” Bernofsky said. “The dome was our first official dropping. This was going to be Drop City and we were going to be droppers. We felt as if we were functioning within the cosmic forces so much that we were actually influencing them.” Over the ensuing 40 years, the name, Drop City, would come to baffle many writers and scholars. “Perhaps the most pervasive myths about Drop City have to do with its name,” Miller wrote. “In the late 1960s the word drop had two special meanings. First, it meant ingesting LSD; dropping acid was the standard argot for that. Second, many hippies saw themselves as dropouts from a decaying society, the alienated who were going to build their own culture from the ground up. So anyone who heard of Drop City immediately had two associations, and the general presumption was that the name of the commune involved one or both kinds of dropping.” The FBI got it partially correct. “BERNOFSKY, on being specifically questioned as to the use of the name droppers and the name Drop City,” one FBI report said, “stated that the terms had been adopted not from the viewpoint of meaning that he and the members of the community were dropping out of society and desired to isolate themselves, but rather from the viewpoint of desiring to shock society by indicating that we drop things here and there, thereafter alluding to the droppings of animals in that word usage connotation.” By midsummer, Bernofsky said, the droppers had moved out of the farmhouse and into their first geodesic dome, a dwelling made of things like chicken

“The appearance of Time magazine signified to me that we had lost our direction for the development of Drop City,” said Bernofsky. “Now, everything that I despised about fame was happening to us. There was too much glory too soon.”

wire, tar paper, trash and sawed-off car tops. The architectural marvels would become the signature of the commune. “All four of us—my wife and I, Clark and Richard [Kallweit, another KU art graduate] moved in,” Bernofsky said. “My wife and I then decided that we wanted more privacy, so we pitched a tent between the two trees, a cottonwood and a black mulberry, that grew on our property in the southwest corner of the land below the dome. It was a small wall tent. In the mornings, we’d make a fire in the woodstove of the dome and cook up some gruel, and then we headed out to scrounge and build. We only owned hand tools, and the building of the domes took a lot of precise work. During the construction period, we were always accumulating found material from around the area. We would assemble it into massive collages, and place them along the fenceline of Drop City, and paint them with buckets of oil paint that Clark had gotten at school. Already, we were transforming the land.”

rom the inception of Drop City, the founding droppers had decided that they would make no rules, nor devise any standards by which to judge anyone who wished to join the community. In sociological parlance, Drop City had no “cross-boundary control” over its members or visitors. The droppers welcomed all comers with open arms and offered them full use of the community’s resources. Newcomers could also bail out whenever they wished. “We really believed the cosmic forces would take care of us,” Bernofsky said. “We never drew up a charter or anything. The only legal paper we had was the land deed, which was in my name. The newcomers would show up and we would all pitch in and build separate domes for them. During the construction phase we

F

set up a big wall tent for the families to inhabit. We had people showing up and making a commitment and contributing energy to develop the community. We really believed the cosmic forces would take care of us.” As the commune expanded, the press began to take notice. A local story about Drop City appeared in the Denver Post in 1967 and mentioned that “the droppers don’t take drugs and they work diligently on imaginative projects and art works.” As far as newspapers were concerned, Bernofsky said, “It didn’t make any sense to tell them the truth about drugs because we would have gotten busted. There were times we thought the feds were coming down on us and people would take off to hide their stash in the walls of their domes. But on the other hand, no, we didn’t wake up in the morning and start smoking pot first thing. It was a way to recreate for us. There were certain activities I liked to engage in while being stoned—like playing chess. At Drop City we didn’t want the hype to get out that we smoked dope. We didn’t want a bunch of people lying around taking drugs and experiencing eternal insights. We were outside every day with our tools making things. There wasn’t any place for heavy drugs.” Drop City resident Peter Douthit reported “the only thou-shalt-not rule at Drop City that everybody was serious about was never buying or selling dope.” Even FBI informants denied that dropper associates used any type of drugs or liquor or were involved in any criminal activity. However, Douthit painted a different picture in his book, which he published after leaving the commune. After reading Douthit’s Drop City, reviewer Joseph Nicholson concluded in his Rolling Stone write-up: “Consciousnessexpanding drugs are at the heart of the

Drop City story. The dropper’s daily intake reads like a spilled bowl of vegetable soup—T’s and P’s and L’s and D’s and S’s and M’s galore, plus grass, hash, speed, etc. The result is a macho perception of life at its simplest—the deer, trees, sky, and mountains. At the other end, we have the drug adventures, some hilarious, some revealing, some frightening. To go with the flow, yet maintain control was the objective.” Richert admitted that “the droppers were proLSD, but we were not all heavy users.” It’s hard to say just how much dope the droppers inhaled or swallowed, but there’s no question drugs played some role in the dynamics of the community— and in the hippie movement in general. As the number of visitors to Drop City steadily increased, the droppers would have a large variety of drugs from which to choose—ranging from heroin to LSD. All were fairly easy to acquire at the time. “How much of this hippie pharmacopoeia reached Drop City is hard to ascertain,” Miller wrote, “but it is a fair guess that virtually all of the droppers had enough experience with marijuana to understand the notion of chemical alteration of consciousness.”

ropper fame spread as newspaper reporters and television crews from Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Boulder and Trinidad continued to churn out stories about the commune. Some articles painted the droppers in a good light as hard working and productive artists while others panned them as loafers and miscreants. The wire services picked up some of the stories, which then ran in papers up and down the Rocky Mountain front, but their reputation as an underground cultural center remained regional. However, one day in 1967, the shit hit the fan—at least from Bernofsky’s point of view.

While working on the triple-fused dome, the undeclared leader of Drop City watched a shiny red Toyota drive through the commune gate and onto the property. Bernofsky took particular interest because most tourists showed enough respect to park along the road. “Two casually dressed, neat looking men emerged from the sedan,” he said. “A necklace of cameras dangled from the shoulders of one. When I saw those cameras I thought, here comes trouble. The two men introduced themselves as reporters from Time magazine and said they were looking for Peter Rabbit [aka Peter Douthit]. ‘You’ll find him in that dome,’ I said. The reporters entered the dome, but quickly reappeared with Douthit, who proceeded to lead them around the community like a drum major. When the reporters stopped to interview me, they explained that Time was preparing a cover story on hippies and planned to focus a spotlight on Drop City. I refused to be interviewed and retreated to my dome while the reporters spent the rest of the afternoon holed up with Douthit. “The appearance of Time magazine signified to me that we had lost our direction for the development of Drop City” he continued. “Now, everything that I despised about fame was happening to us. There was too much glory too soon. Our substance wasn’t rooted deep enough to withstand the attention. Drop City was being sucked up by big-time commercial media and the community began to wither. It came about because of the myopic greed of some individuals seeking self aggrandizement. In the end, their true colors showed through. They were nothing but posturing buffoons who were able to manipulate the community for their own ends. They wanted to become the Allen Ginsbergs of the hippie movement. For me, that was elemental bullshit.” Bernofsky also objected to another new development at the commune. Douthit and others decided to host the Joy Festival, a June event that invited anyone and everyone to Drop City to partake in “Poetry-Painting-Music-BeansFeds-Lite Shows-Dropping-Dance-Films.” “We had started arguing over it right from the beginning,” Bernofsky said. “I was against it for one reason. At that time no essence or soul had been built into

Droppers lived by a certain work ethic, or better yet, a creativity ethic, which they pursued both communally and individually. They also stridently protected individual intellectual freedom. When the droppers worked together, the community grew. But when they pursued personal agendas, Drop City started to suffer.

the community that could withstand anything like the Joy Festival.” Sociologists would have agreed with Bernofsky’s analysis. The droppers never attempted to program individual behavior, require newcomers to go through an initiation, or to convert; nor did Drop City present any power structures or authority figure to inspire an individual to surrender to the group’s subtle and ambiguous institutions. The main dropper institution was a work ethic, or better yet, a creativity ethic, which they pursued both communally and individually. Another institution, which they stridently protected—one that went hand in hand with creativity—was individual intellectual freedom. Mixing creativity and freedom transformed into dropper art. All was based on the ideals of brotherly love and rejection of capitalistic materialism. Those individuals astute enough to understand the subtle and often ambiguous institutions of Drop City pitched in to help build domes, tend to the chickens, and dig latrines as they simultaneously indulged in personal artistic pursuits. Those who continued to focus on themselves sometimes

faltered in their commitment to the community, finding it difficult to abandon the American ideals of the self-made man or woman—despite their apparent voluntary acceptance of poverty. When individual rhythm coincided with the communal heartbeat, Drop City grew stronger. When self-interest persisted in a dropper, the bedrock of the community began to crack. As the event approached, Bernofsky began to withdraw. He pulled back even more during the festivities. “Everything you can imagine at the height of the psychedelic period of the mid-’60s happened that whole week,” he said. “The noise was ceaseless. I stayed away and never came close to the dome the entire weekend. I didn’t want to see it or participate in it.” Bernofsky’s vision of Drop City as a gentle, nurturing home where creative people could start families and make art for art’s sake—no, for life’s sake—had been shattered. Drop City had suddenly garnered a new reputation: a place to pursue perpetual fun, where a person could get high, maybe get laid, and feel no pres-

sure to take on any responsibility; a place to chill out for a while before moving on to somewhere else. He sensed the change. From that day on the commune would resemble a hobo camp, a Hooverville; community would exist only in the moment, faces would forever change, no one would set down roots. Drop City had splashed itself upon the counterculture map of America—big time. “Everything I was naively dreaming about was lost and had been turned into a senseless, meaningless behemoth of empty smoke,” Bernofsky said. “I had lost all input.” The next day, Bernofsky packed his family and their possessions into an old station wagon and hit the road once again. The FBI noted the departure and later tracked his movements: “Current investigation at Trinidad, Colorado, resulted in information that BERNOFSKY is believed by U.S. Post Office, and welfare agencies, Trinidad, to have left area in June of 1967…” editor@missoulanews.com

The back-to-the-land commune movement would expand to include at least 5,000 and possibly 10,000 rural communal retreats. Sociologists estimate at least a half million young people would become temporarily associated with a communal enterprise.

Join us for BRAIN FOOD, not plain food.

Tasting the tree of life FLASHINTHEPAN The thought of eating a human placenta may not immediately appeal to some readers, but the practice of placentophagy has been around about as long as placentas have. In fact, in some countries it’s rather common. I recently watched more than my share of placenta footage during a section on emergency childbirth in an EMT course I’m taking. The teacher instructed us to save the placenta—sometimes referred to as the “tree of life”—and bring it along with mother and child to the hospital, where it may be useful as evidence in case of subsequent medical complications, or as a source for blood if the baby needs a transfusion. Also, Teacher said, some women want to keep their placentas. “Why, Teacher?” Some mothers want to bury it ritualistically, she explained, and do something like plant a tree over it. And some want to eat their placenta. The room filled with agonized groans. “My friend ate her placenta in a blueberry smoothie,” said a guy in back. Again, the question was, “Why?” Placentovores believe the placenta is a precious item full of nutrients, hormones and other goodies. Eating placenta is believed to help with the tremendous hormonal reprogramming that a woman undergoes after birth. In Chinese medicine, dried placenta is given to new mothers to increase lactation and prevent postpartum depression. The lactation-enhancing qualities of dried placenta were substantiated by research in the 1950s. More recently, researchers have connected postpartum depression with a lack of corticotropin-releasing hormone, or CRH, a hormone that helps people deal with stress. CRH is normally released by the hypothalamus, but it’s also released by the placenta in pregnant women, causing the hypothalamus to ramp down production. After the placenta is delivered and before the hypothalamus resumes its normal output,

placenta, is a multi-tasker with more than 100 known functions. Both organs are exceptionally bloody. But while many liver functions focus on detoxification, the placenta is designed for nourishing. Intuitively, that sounds like better eating, even if viscerally it remains tough to swallow, so to speak. For those to whom placenta eating is both intriguing and repulsive, a company called Placenta Benefits will send a representative to your home to cook, dehydrate, pulverize and pack your powdered placenta into inoffensive capsules. Mothering chat rooms are awash with the glowing reports of placenta pill popping mamas, including some who hadn’t eaten placenta when prior children were born, who report feeling that the pills helped them with the transition from pregnancy to motherhood. Some placenta pill poppers keep a stash, frozen, for later use when they hit menopause, believing their placenta will help them through that transition as well. If there are indeed health benefits to placentophagy it makes sense to spread them out over time, a la placenta pills. But for those who Photo courtesy of Placenta Benefits want to chow down, there are many recipes out there for placental stews, Insurance covers the use of placental extract to treat pizzas, lasagnas and smoothies. A “Saturday Night Live” skit about “Placenta Helper” was nixed before liver and skin diseases. While some argue placentophagy is basically an it saw the light of day, but has lived on in the lore of act of cannibalism, many vegans think it’s okay to eat placentophagy. Perhaps the most intriguing recipe I found is for one’s own placenta, or a friend’s placenta, because no animal died for the meat. To someone who does- a cocktail of blended placenta and V8 that bears a n’t eat meat, going from zero to placenta casserole striking resemblance to a Bloody Mary. It makes you might prove quite a shock to the system, even if it wonder where Bloody Marys come from. If placenta cocktail is indeed the origin of that does make intellectual sense. Is eating raw placenta mixed into a blueberry enigmatically named drink, it would be fitting. Given smoothie more gross than filling the house with the the fact that many people use alcohol to build up the smell of fried placenta? Would it be better to gnaw nerve to do things they might otherwise not do, like eat placenta, a shot of vodka mixed with the “tree of on the de-membraned mass au naturel? And the most important question of all: How life” might do the trick. And after nine months on the wagon, culminating in one of the most challenging does it taste? Organish, from what I’ve heard and read. If you and exhausting experiences of her life, mommy like liver, you might like placenta. The liver, like the could probably use a drink. the mother may be short on CRH, and less able to deal with stress. Another recent study found that rats are more pain-tolerant after eating placenta. Other investigators are looking at possible immunological benefits of placentophagy. Drug and cosmetic companies have taken notice of the potential benefits of some placental molecules and discreetly purchase placentas from hospital maternity wards. And the Japanese National Health

HAPPIESTHOUR Feruqi’s Why you’re here: Because Feruqi’s sits so prominently in downtown Missoula, yet seems so out of place among the otherwise crunchy yuppiedom that dominates downtown. On a recent Thursday night, when there are about as many offshift bartenders hanging around drinking as there are customers, the essence of Feruqi’s proves elusive. Feruqi’s really comes alive on a Friday or Saturday night, when DJs attract a bar full of dancers, or on Wednesday, which is Ladies’ Night. What you’re drinking: If it’s your birthday or bachelor party, Feruqi’s will fix you its famed Flaming Blue Lamborghini. The recipe, says offshift bartender Josh, is an “ancient Chinese secret.” Otherwise, have yourself a light beer, or, if you’re slackin’ it on the dance floor, order up a vodka and Red Bull.

Why you’ll come back: Because, even in a mostly empty bar, you like that the bartender, when pouring a stiff one, shows off his skills by lifting the bottle about three feet above the glass. And, if you’re a crunchy yuppie, no one will know you.

New words you’ll learn: “Scrog,” meaning to copulate. “Apparently, people scrog in our bathroom,” laughs Matt the bartender.

How to find it: 318 N. Higgins Ave., Missoula. You can’t miss the neon cocktail glass. —Matthew Frank

What you’re listening to: Classic rock. But then electronic beats come over the speakers, and one customer yells, “This is my most favoritest rave song ever!” “No,” says her friend, “it’s my favoritest rave song!” Matt hollers, “Josh, get out your glow sticks!” Then Matt cranks it up. “Gotta keep the crowd on its toes,” Matt says.

ASKARI Natural curiosity

Q

What’s the difference between “organic” and “natural” as food labels? —Confused Consumer

Both words have very different meanings, depending on the context. In chemistry terms, many of the pesticides and herbicides prohibited under organic certification are, technically speaking, organic molecules—which merely means they are carbonbased. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic is an evolving definition originally based on the kinds of foods grown on small, diverse farms that don’t use chemicals. Big ag wanted in on the lucrative organic market, so the USDA certification system was created to codify the label. While certified organic farms can now be vast monocultures worked by underpaid immigrants, they still must adhere to basic sustainable agriculture principles like having a soil building program, not using agrichemicals, not confining livestock and, more recently, allowing livestock access to pasture.

A

The “natural” label, on the other hand, mandates little in the way of how the food is raised, and only regulates how it’s processed. Thus, an animal raised in confinement, that was routinely dosed with antibiotics for non-therapeutic reasons, and regularly ate another animal’s fecal material in its food, could still be labeled “natural” as long as the flesh isn’t processed with chemicals after the animal is slaughtered. That’s not exactly what most people have in mind when they think of “natural” food. Ironically, a recent survey found many consumers choose “natural” over “organic,” either because they think it’s more “natural,” or because they think it’s less expensive, neither of which tend to be true. Of course, the dictionary definition of natural: “present in or produced by nature,” is a bit squirrelly. What isn’t ultimately produced by nature? Everything, thus, could be considered natural, including corn that was genetically engineered to produce organic chemicals. Send your food and garden queries to flash@flashinthepan.net

SPOTLIGHT

zero theory

When art intersects with math, some pretty wildly inventive stuff can happen. For example, M.C. Escher created his twisting, surreal prints and drawings based heavily on his self-taught exploration of mathematics. On the musical side of the spectrum, avant-garde electronic duo Autechre springs to mind. They use number-crunching techniques in many of their compositions, and the result is an array of shifting textures and off-kilter beats unlike anything I’ve ever heard. WHAT: First Friday opening of Prolonged Endeavor WHO: Jen Erickson WHEN: Fri., April 2, 5–8 PM WHERE: The Brink Gallery, 111 W. Front St. HOW MUCH: Free MORE INFO: thebrinkgallery.com or call 531-7671 In a similar vein, artist Jen Erickson capitalizes on her fascination with math and physics, along with theories of consciousness and visual information systems, as inspiration for her elaborate abstract paintings. Her striking pieces—like “pE = {(z, 71694), (b, 0)},” pictured here—consist of hundreds of thousands of zeros drawn on washes of oil paint mixed with walnut oil. Some of Erickson’s pieces look like nebulous clouds from a distant galaxy, while others resemble sprawling colonies of mold.

When the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho-based artist (and former local) debuts her work at The Brink Gallery on Friday, I’d absorb her paintings with an open and inquiring mind. There’s lots of detail and much to explore, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself staring intently at any one of her pieces. But don’t worry, you won’t have to solve any equations to appreciate the sheer complexity of her art. —Ira Sather-Olson

Titus Andronicus The Monitor XL

Titus Andronicus kicks off The Monitor with Abraham Lincoln’s 1838 address “A More Perfect Union: The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions.” The whole album, in fact, is a metaphor comparing the American Civil War to the current fractured state of the country, and to keep with the theme, it weaves in bagpipes, rat-a-tat snares and broad ideas about society and war. Fortunately the New Jersey band doesn’t take that parallel to such extremes that it mires itself. Truth is, it’s when the songs diverge from the big themes into glass clinking pub ditties about gritty living and despair that the album finds its strength. Singer Patrick Stickles belts out briny, drunken lines like, “And

Prepschool Cadillac self-released

If French house music pioneers Daft Punk got freaky with an alien version of Rick James, Prepschool would be its offspring. This Chicagobased collective—which includes ex-locals James Nasset, Matts Larson and Dave Najarian—pushes a funky, soulful mix of disco house, house and electro that’s heavily bathed in hip-hop and dubstep influences. It’s definitely party music, but Cadillac has a

Lissie

Why You Runnin’ Fat Possum Records

Lissie Maurus calls Los Angeles home, but her heart—and her voice—comes straight from the country. On this debut EP, the freckle-faced frontwoman belts out some serious southern swagger and boot-stomping soul with pipes as memorable as Neko Case’s. In fact, opener “Little Lovin’” features that gorgeous, ringing reverb that’s become a signature part of Case’s songs. But once this hand-clapping, revivalist track hits its harmonious climax, Maurus moves quickly out of the comparison with a brooding cover of Hank Williams’ “Wedding Bells.” In a nice, smart touch, she switches the lyrics to reflect a woman’s perspective.

Hank Williams III Damn Right, Rebel Proud Curb Records

Hank Williams III is the embodiment of rebel country, or “hellbilly,” as some folks call it. Damn Right, Rebel Proud offers another helping of pissed-off lyrics and surly vocals, while maintaining the signature style that his fans love: straightforward Nashville rockabilly roots, liberally laced with punk and metal influences. While he clearly embraces his lineage (he would likely be just another two-bit punk-country singer without it), it’s obvious that Hank III is anxious to separate himself, both from his famous forefathers

now that I’m older I look back and say…For those dreams are lying in the still of the grave—what the fuck were they for anyway?” His saw-toothed vocals sometimes sound like a mix between Bruce Springsteen and Conor Oberst (a comparison Stickles apparently loathes), but not too derivative. The guitar work seems a bit uninspired and kazoolike at times, the saxophone a little gaudy, but the gang vocals give the album bursting energy, especially when the band yells, “The enemy is everywhere!” with so much raw enthusiasm.

That’s because it has depth and lots of progression in each track. “Hey Boss,” is a prime illustration, starting out on a slinky hip-hop/house tip and slowly morphing its way into a heady exercise in turntablism, with some deliciously nimble scratching from Najarian. The title track is another fine example; the group employs echo and filtering effects as a catalyst for instrumental evolution. And these guys have also mastered the art of the breakdown: The burbling bass line and breakbeat that takes over near the end of “Yacht Race!” is unexpected but fits the mood perfectly. Despite a few cheesy moments—the affected vocals on “One Day at a Time” are just a little too feelgood and over the top for me—this debut delivers a splendid chunk of futuristic funk. (Ira Sather-Olson) A piano ballad, “On Mississippi,” doesn’t hit the same high notes, but another original, “Everywhere I Go,” brilliantly features Maurus’ lilting voice against a sparse backdrop of tambourine and guitar (she saves a little more for the end). It may be the best song on the EP. No matter how each of these five songs comes together, Maurus’ voice manages to stand out. She consistently finds the type of memorable delivery—strong and powerful in one moment, with a bucket full of vulnerable the next—that assures you’ll hear more from her in the near future. (Skylar Browning) and the music industry itself. The scathing opener proclaims that “the Grande Ole Opry ain’t so grand anymore,” and proceeds to list—over a cheerful, bouncy melody—exactly why the Opry (and, one assumes, the country music industry in general) is so uptight and out-of-touch. Along with his hard-driving, string-heavy backup band, Hank III churns, sneers, snarls and screams his way through 13 tunes full of whiskey, drugs, suicides and working-class stiffs. While some songs are traditional enough for two-stepping, and others lean more heavily on modern punk, they are, at their core, about rebel pride. And in that sense— given the defiant natures of his father and grandfather before him—the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

ADVICE GODDESS By Amy Alkon

OVER MY DEAD BODYPAINT I agreed to be in a friend’s wedding, and unfortunately, she had to change the date to the day my boyfriend and I were going to Burning Man. When I told him I’d have to go to her wedding instead, he erupted in anger. He wants me to ask her to change the date, and says he’ll “never forgive me” if I don’t go with him. Now, we were only going to Burning Man together because he couldn’t take the whole week off, so instead of going with his friends, he decided to accompany me midweek. I reminded him that we’ve been to Burning Man six times, and a wedding, presumably, happens once in a lifetime. He called me a hypocrite because I don’t believe in marriage, but will “sacrifice my commitment” to him to celebrate her commitment. He argues with such vehemence, I’m beginning to doubt my own judgment and wonder if he’s right. He’s acted like this before, but it’s become less frequent during our five years together. I don’t want to believe my boyfriend’s a selfish, manipulative ass, so...does he have a point? If not, how do I explain that you don’t abandon your friend on her wedding day to run around naked in the desert? —Upset Bridesmaid If your boyfriend’s ego were a pimple, it would burst and flood Vermont. He’s actually demanding that the bride rebook the church, the caterer, the florist, and the hall, and tell hundreds of her guests to change their plans. Because he needs you there when he accepts his Nobel? No, because he wants to bum a ride with you to go to stand around the desert and watch middle-aged men and women flitting about in fairy wings and clown noses, painting daisies around each other’s nipples. It gets better. He’s telling you he’ll “never forgive” you. Because you slept with his brother, his best friend, or his brother and his best friend? Nope. Because he might have to pitch in for gas for a ride in some friend-of-a-friend’s van that’s been modified into a giant rubber ducky in a tutu. What your boyfriend’s doing to you is “gaslighting,” which, unfortunately, only sounds like lighting farts on fire. It’s actually insidious emotional abuse that gets its name from the 1944 Ingrid Bergman movie, “Gaslight,” about an heiress whose husband makes small changes around their home (like making their gas-powered lights flicker), then denies anything’s different, making her believe

her sanity’s gone off its hinges. In a relationship, writes Dr. Robin Stern in “The Gaslight Effect,” you’re being gaslighted when somebody relentlessly pressures you to believe the unbelievable and do what you know you shouldn’t. Stern explains that the gaslighter “needs to be right in order to preserve his own sense of self and his sense of having power in the world,” while the gaslightee allows him to bully away her sense of reality and self because she fears losing his love and approval. Of course, in your case, it could have something to do with not wanting to think you’ve wasted five years with “a selfish, manipulative ass.” (Fart-play suddenly sounding inviting?) Just as you don’t have to believe in Santa to take your kid nephew to give his list of demands to some fat stranger in a fake beard, you don’t have to believe in marriage to appreciate what a huge life event it is for your friend. Huge enough that it’s reasonable to “sacrifice” your “commitment” to attend a giant aciddropping fest in the desert. There are commitments, and then there are commitments, which is why there are bazillions of wedding photographers but few earning thousands of dollars shooting keepsake albums of people who carpool together. Of course, you know all this. Or knew—until Clarence Darrow, as played by a big, soggy-diapered baby, started in on you. Clearly, this is less about a wedding than winning. But, in a healthy relationship, winning sometimes means letting the person you care about get their way. A loving boyfriend might be underthrilled that you’re attending the wedding, but he won’t hammer you about it until you’re not sure who you are or what you think. You either need to refuse to engage when he goes bully on you or refuse to stick around for more. If you do decide to leave, you shouldn’t have to worry about finding a new boyfriend, just about hiring bouncers for the line of guys wanting to date you after hearing the reason behind your breakup: “Yeah, seems my ex just couldn’t handle it when I said, ‘Bummer that I have to get all dressed up and go to this wedding, but you live it up best you can at that paganistic, psychedelic orgy in the desert.’”

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

EMPLOYMENT

By Rob Brezsny SKILLED LABOR ARIES (March 21-April 19): I’m worried about your ability to sneak and fake and dissemble. These skills seem to have atrophied in you. To quote Homer Simpson, “You couldn’t fool your own mother on the foolingest day of your life with an electrified fooling machine!” Please, Aries, jump back into the game-playing, BS-dispensing routine the rest of us are caught up in. APRIL FOOL! Everything I just said was a filthy lie. In fact, I admire the candor and straightforwardness you’ve been cultivating. My only critique is that maybe you could take some of the edge off it. Try telling the raw truth with more relaxed grace. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll probably dream of falling off a cliff, or plunging out of a hot-air balloon, or skydiving without a parachute. I’m very disappointed in your unconscious mind’s decision to expose yourself to such unpleasant experiences, even if they are pretend. APRIL FOOL! I told you a half-truth. While it is likely that you will dream of diving off a mountaintop or tumbling out of a hot-air balloon or flying through the big sky without a parachute, your unconscious mind has arranged it so that you will land softly and safely in a giant pile of foam padding and feathers next to a waterfall whose roaring flow is singing your name. Despite the apparent inconvenience in the first part of the dream, you will be taken care of by the end. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): On the “Ghost Hunters” TV program, paranormal researchers investigate places that are thought to be haunted by supernatural entities. One commercial for the show urges us, the viewers, to “Get fluent in fear!” That exhortation happens to be perfect advice for you, Gemini. APRIL FOOL! I lied. This is not at all a good time for you to get fluent in fear. But more than that. It’s actually a momentous time to get un-fluent in fear. You have an unprecedented opportunity to stop casually exposing yourself to anxiety-inducing influences. You have amazing power to shut down that place in your imagination where you generate your scary fantasies. The conquest of your fears could be at hand!



CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your gambling chakra is conspiring with your inner roughneck to pull a fast one on your dignity chakra and your inner wuss. If they get away with their scheme you may find yourself having ridiculous yet holy fun in high places. And I wouldn’t be surprised if in the course of these hijinks, your spirit guides channeled some holistic karma into the part of your psychic anatomy that we in the consciousness business call your “spiritual orgy button.” APRIL FOOL! Sorry if that sounded a bit esoteric. I was invoking some faux shamanic jargon in the hope of bypassing your rational mind and tricking you into experiencing a fizzy, buoyant altered state, which would be an excellent tonic for both your mental and physical health.



LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I eat pressure for breakfast,” says Leo-born James Cameron, director of Avatar and Titanic, the two highest grossing films ever made. Like many in your tribe, he has a very high opinion of himself. “Anybody can be a father or a husband,” he told his fourth wife Linda Hamilton. “There are only five people in the world who can do what I do, and I’m going for that.” He’s your role model. APRIL FOOL! I lied. While I do urge you to focus intensely on the quality or talent that’s most special about you, I strongly discourage you from neglecting your more ordinary roles. In Cameron’s case, I’d advise him to start working on his next fantastic project but also spiff up his skills as a husband and father. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do NOT, under any circumstances, express your anger at the mainstream media by taking a baseball bat into a superstore full of electronic gear and smashing 32 TV sets. Keep it to a minimum of 15 sets, please! APRIL FOOL! I lied. I definitely don’t recommend that you smash any TVs with a baseball bat. However, you do have permission to bash and smash things in your imagination. In fact I encourage it. Engaging in a fantasy of breaking inanimate objects that symbolize what oppresses you will shatter a certain mental block that desperately needs shattering.





LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): As I studied your astrological data, a curious vision popped into my mind’s eye. I saw a scene of a perky possum in a superhero costume giving you a tray of red jello covered with marshmallows, gumdrops, and chocolate kisses. And I knew immediately that it was a prime metaphor for your destiny right now. APRIL FOOL! I lied, sort of. Your imminent future may feature an unlikely offering from an unexpected source, but that offering will simply be like red jello from a possum—with no superhero costume, and no marshmallows, gumdrops, or chocolate kisses.



SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I sincerely hope that 2010 will be the year you stop worshiping Satan for good. Luckily, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to get that worthy project in gear. Despite the odd pleasures your twisted devotion to the Evil One seems to bring you, it actually undermines your ability to get what you want. The ironic fact of the matter is that pure unrepentant selfishness—the kind that Satan celebrates—is the worst possible way to achieve your selfish goals. APRIL FOOL! I know you don’t really worship Satan. I was just hoping to jolt you into considering my real desire for you, which is to achieve your selfish goals by cultivating more unselfishness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): According to Uncyclopedia.com, Riding the Snake is a book co-authored by Oscar Wilde and Jesus Christ in 1429 B.C. If you can find a copy, I strongly suggest you read it. You could really use some help in taming the unruly kundalini that has been whipping you around. APRIL FOOL! I lied. There is no such ancient book. But that doesn’t change the fact that you’d really benefit from getting more control over your instinctual energy. I’d love to see your libidinous power be more thoroughly harnessed in behalf of your creative expression.



CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Supermodel Selita Ebanks is your role model. In accordance with the astrological omens, I recommend that you arrange for the kind of special treatment she enjoys as she’s preparing for a runway show. That means getting five stylists to work for hours every day perfecting every aspect of your physical appearance. Please make sure they apply no less than 20 layers of makeup to your butt. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The omens say this is not a good time to obsess on your outer beauty. They do suggest, however, that attending to your inner beauty would be smart. So please do the equivalent of getting 20 layers of makeup applied to your soul’s butt.



AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Would it be a wise idea for you to stage your own kidnapping and demand ransom money for your release? Should you appear on a reality TV show that will expose your intimate secrets to millions of viewers? Could you get your spiritual evolution back on track by joining a religious cult? APRIL FOOL! The questions I just posed were terrible! They were irrelevant to the destiny you should be shaping for yourself. But they were provocative, and may therefore be the nudge you need to get smarter about formulating your choices. It has never been more important than it is right now for you to ask yourself good questions.

What I just said is only half true. While it’s an excellent time to prove your mettle, there are far more constructive ways to do it than lying on a bed of nails. For example, you could try shaking off a bad influence that chronically saps your energy.

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.

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.
