One of the true culinary treasures of the Pacific Northwest, fresh Copper River salmon is again in the GFS seafood case. Copper River chinook, sockeye and coho are specially prized for their rich flavor, firm pink flesh and their high levels of healthful omega-3 fatty acids – all developed in their 300-mile run up the Copper’s icy, fast-flowing waters. But these salmon aren’t always easy to find – Alaska officials only permit commercial salmon fishing on the Copper twice a week and then only during tightly restricted hours. So come grab a fillet – or a whole fish – while you can. If you need a terrific salmon recipe or even a few grilling tips, don’t hesitate to ask. We love our Copper River salmon and we want you just as fired up about it as we are. www.goodfoodstore.com

STREET TALK

Asked the morning of Tuesday, May 22, near the Missoula County Courthouse This week the Indy looks at some of the more difficult jobs in western Montana. What’s the best job you’ve ever had? Follow-up: What’s the worst?

Dan Palchak: The best was definitely fishing guide on the Swan River. I mean, I had to fish all day and make sure other guys had a great time doing the same, all while being on the river. Food flight: My first job, dishwasher at the Sizzler. It was really hot and really messy. People left a lot of food uneaten, and with the pressure sprayer, well, you ended up stinking like everything they left on their plates. It was nasty. Maria Vessey: Housewife! Because you never have to be anywhere any specific time, half the time. Of course, pay is not one of the benefits. Deal breaker: Back in about 1980, in Florida, I worked for a half day at a restaurant whose name I can’t remember. The owner was a bigamist, or whatever you call it, and he called the AfricanAmericans the n-word, and the f-word was used every other word. The customers could hear him, too!

Bryan Koop: I was the director of ticketing for AEG Live, a worldwide ticketing and promotion agency. It was amazing, because I love music and got to work in the music industry for 15 years. En pointe: I’d have to say working at the Arvada Center for the Arts in California. I booked shows for them too, but it was all about arts and ballet, and I’m not really an artsy guy.

Justin Shinn: Assistant manager at the Village 6—it was sweet! It was back before digital projectors, and you had to “build” the film. To build it, you had to watch it, so my buddies would come down while I’m getting paid to watch movies. Stackin’ bowls: Washing dishes at Hu Hot. Everybody there gets like three or four bowls, and they’d be stacked to the ceiling and coming in just as fast as I could wash them. I didn’t last very long. Laurie Legard: Working in Dorney Park, an amusement park, back in high school. I was a kid, so I loved the water park, the wave and the slides. Wipeout: I want to say the one I have now, but really it would have to be working as a nursing assistant, being underpaid and understaffed, and yes, we had to wipe old people’s butts. I actually got a concussion from a combative Alzheimer’s patient—he knocked me cold out.

Franke Wilmer for Congress The Democratic Party has fielded an impressive group of candidates vying for Montana’s lone seat in the House of Representatives. But the one who stands out as the exceptional candidate is Franke Wilmer. While her legislative experience and life story are compelling, what sets Wilmer apart are her unwavering commitment to human rights and her expertise in international affairs. She has published books on both subjects. Since most of us, by definition, are not part of the one percent who control the wealth and power of the nation, we would be well served to have a representative who truly cares about our human rights and not just our economic status. And as we are obviously part of a global economy and world order, it would certainly benefit us to have our member of Congress be someone who understands the issues. Franke Wilmer is that person. She is prepared to go to Washington, D.C., and represent all the people of Montana. And she is prepared to help lead this nation. She has the heart and mind to be one of our great Montana leaders. We encourage you to vote for Franke Wilmer. Google her and learn more about her life, her character and her accomplishments. She is a special Montana woman and someone we are privileged to call a friend. We also want her to be our congressperson. Robert and Linda Harris Whitefish

Annoyance with obtrusive negative ads will be the least of our problems if our elected officials are once again totally owned by corporations and wealthy individuals. Republicans like to complain about “judicial activism” when a court decision doesn’t go their way, but they remain silent when the court overrules precedent and commits this most grievous case of judicial activism. Consider that all five Supreme Court justices who voted for the Citizens United decision were appointed by Republican

“If a Republican president appoints another Supreme Court justice, it will ensure more decisions that transfer power from 'we the people' to the corporations.”

Don’t vote for Republicans If you disagree with the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, which claimed that corporations are people, be aware of some facts concerning the case. The decision reversed over 100 years of constitutional law based on principles established by this nation’s founders. After all, we fought the Revolutionary War in part to achieve independence from English crown corporations that dominated colonial commerce and governed some of the original 13 colonies. It wasn’t until the Civil War that private corporations gained importance and began exerting increasing influence over government at all levels. After two Montana senators bought their way into office with the support of the Anaconda Copper Company, Congress passed the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1913, changing the rules so that U.S. senators were elected by popular vote rather than by state legislatures. As a result of the Citizens United decision, unlimited and unaccountable corporate money is flooding the campaigns. The court’s decision overruled two precedents of the Supreme Court that upheld restrictions on corporate and union spending to support or oppose political candidates.

presidents and that the four who voted against it were appointed by Democratic presidents. If you don’t want our government in complete control of international corporate interests, support Jon Tester and other Democrats in their efforts to pass a constitutional amendment repealing the Citizens United decision. Electing a Republican president will perpetuate corporate dominance of our economy, society and politics. If a Republican president appoints another Supreme Court justice, it will ensure more decisions that transfer power from “we the people” to the corporations. Think about this when you vote in November. Jerry Elwood Kalispell

Sign the petition What a wonderful country we live in. There is no better time to revel in the positive attributes of our country than during an election cycle. Thanks to the actions of five members of the U.S. Supreme Court, we get to see the results of millions of dol-

lars being spent to influence our elections by spreading every sort of misleading, negative information you can imagine. The enjoyment of dispensing this barrage of trumped-up attack ads is not reserved for the anonymous purveyors of Super PACs, but has become the modus operandi of choice for most of the present day candidates. It is extremely rare to discover a candidate who simply extols positive aspects and offers solutions for the challenges which face constituents. One of the wonderful things about our system is the freedom we have to be able to say most anything in a political race without providing any references whatsoever. The thing about this is, if something is repeated often enough, many people will accept it as fact. One other great luxury we enjoy is the option to actually agree with a candidate’s views, but then go into the voting booth and vote for his opponent, who is a member of the political party our parents always supported, even though such a choice is not in our best interest. All facetiousness aside, we really are fortunate to be able to join together with others who are being oppressed by the super rich and to work through the initiative process to bring about an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will effectively make it illegal once again for corporations to spend unlimited funds to influence elections. Enjoy this freedom, and find a Stand With Montanans Petition to sign. Let’s not let super-rich out-of-state entities tell us Montanans how to vote. Edd Blackler Big fork

Vote for Bucy Many people respect Pam Bucy for her legal experience as a prosecutor and as chief deputy attorney general, but fewer know about Pam’s behind-the-scenes work representing low-income people. For 15 years—ever since she became a lawyer— Pam has had pro bono clients. She has represented these people (typically in divorce and child custody cases) without pay and without publicity. I became aware of this while working as information specialist at the State Bar of Montana, where Pam volunteered as co-chair of the Equal Justice Task Force. I was impressed with this capable yet modest woman who not only took on legal cases personally but also addressed accessto-justice issues statewide. Pam is someone who is not too good, or too busy, for people in need. This is only one of many qualities that will make her a great attorney general for Montana. Please vote for Pam Bucy for attorney general. Jill Sundby Van Alstyne Helena

A 19-year-old man jumps from the Madison Street Bridge into the rushing Clark Fork River, prompting the Missoula and Rural fire departments, Care Flight and the Missoula Police to search the waterway between the bridge and Reserve Street. He was not found. Law enforcement says the man jumped from the bridge with a female companion who made it to shore.

• Thursday, May 17 The U.S. Postal Service announces that it will close its Kalispell mail processing center and relocate operations to Missoula. The move comes as the USPS readies to close 48 other processing centers across the country in an effort to fend off financial disaster. Other locations in Butte, Wolf Point and Helena are slated to remain open.

• Friday, May 18 Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) ask the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold Montana’s ban on corporate campaign expenditures. Such spending, they say, creates “a strong potential for corruption and the perception thereof.” Existing rules “purporting to provide for ‘independence’ and ‘disclosure’ in fact provide neither.”

Scotch Gals, a couple of connoisseurs who’ve made a hobby of spreading the gospel of singlemalt Scotch whisky. They’re calling this party “Swords & Scotch.” Maus and Hurley are pouring eight kinds, most of which are smokey and peaty. One bottle, a Springbank aged 18 years, sells for more than $150. Maus and Hurley acquired a fondness for Scotch a couple of years ago when the Rhino, a bar in downtown Missoula, hosted a tasting with distillers from Scotland. “We’ve always been whiskey girls,” Maus says, “and obviously, after tasting some of the greatest Scotches that are out there, we were hooked and felt that everyone should understand that not all Scotch tastes like Band-Aids and smoke.” In February, the duo, both moms, began hosting monthly tastings at the Rhino. They also launched “50 Single Malts in 50 Days,” a series of video reviews on their website, seriousscotchgals.com. “Our goal,” Maus says, “was just to get people interested in single malt whisky—the idea that drinking shouldn’t just be about getting completely obliterated.” As for their zombie warrior outfits, “It’s not what we normally wear to our tastings,” Maus says.

Justice Jail negligence? Michayla Brilz, 27, hanged herself with a telephone cord while incarcerated at the Missoula County Detention Center last year. On May 9, attorneys representing her family asked a judge to compel the county to release information to help them determine if jailers were negligent in her death. “We have collected information over the last six months or so that leads us to believe that there may be a strong basis for a lawsuit,” says the family’s attorney, Milt Datsopoulos. Prior to Brilz’s April 26, 2011 death, she was treated for bipolar disorder, court documents say. She also had a criminal history. In 2010, Brilz pleaded guilty of obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest. She was on misdemeanor probation for driving under the influence when, in the spring of 2011, prosecutors charged her with criminal distribution of dangerous drugs for allegedly paying a babysitter with prescription medication. Brilz was taken into custody at the end of April 2011 for violating the terms of her release. According to a coroner’s inquest conducted after Brilz’s death, she was intoxicated that night; her

blood alcohol level was 0.20, two-and-a-half times the legal driving limit. A detention center staffer testified that Brilz seemed relaxed before she was placed in Holding Cell C. She talked about her two young children. She said nothing of suicide. Roughly 40 minutes after Brilz was placed in the holding cell, a detention center staffer found her unresponsive and with a phone cord wrapped around her neck. Last July, the six-member jury that convened for the coroner’s inquest unanimously found the county innocent of criminal negligence. Datsopoulos, however, points out that there’s a significantly lower threshold of proof required to show civil negligence. He wonders, in light of Brilz’s history of mental illness, why guards didn’t keep a closer eye on her. “It’s not clear why somebody wasn’t watching her,” he says. Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen oversees the detention facility. He wouldn’t comment on the specifics of the Brilz case, but he says the detention facility has taken steady strides to protect safety since he took over as sherif in 2010. “We constantly have been and continue to look for modifications, improvements, to all aspects to the detention facility, safety-wise.” Jessica Mayrer

Food Growing Milltown A retired mason just can’t stop laying foundations. Now, instead of bricks, he’s building his community with food. Billy Izzard, founder of the Milltown Garden Patch, found himself on a bridge surrounded by area residents Sunday, May 20. He’d created something from nothing again: the Milltown Bridge Market. “It’s about the town, our town, and trying to create a sustainable economy,” Izzard explained. Dozens of neighbors showed up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the sun-soaked pedestrian bridge spanning the Blackfoot River, just east of Highway 200. Izzard’s idea was to create an extension of his volunteer-run Garden Patch while offering space for local farmers and crafters. He hesitated to bring competition to Missoula’s markets, but co-founder and market veteran Tom Robinson helped guide him from skeptic to believer. Robinson was slinging succulents, cacti and starters at the south end of the bridge, excited for the new venue as an addition to his 20-year Saturday spot at Missoula’s X’s.

On the north end, the young Grogan family had the same idea. The Missoula Valley farmers are also Saturday market regulars, offering typical early season fare such as bok choy, spring greens, radishes and tomato starts. They say they’re thrilled to have a second weekly opportunity to sell and support other vendors. “It’s unfortunate to see the small towns

picking up last, but it’s good they’re catching on,” Michael Grogan said. The Garden Patch had only an info booth its first week, after some tomatoes got frosty, but Izzard says he expects to pile up the produce soon. Across the highway and just down the road lies a beautiful fenced garden housing more vegetables and fruits than you can name in a breath. The stretch of land was home to knapweed and rocks just three years ago. Last year, the nonprofit donated over 1,500 pounds of produce to the Food Bank, locals in need, schools and churches. Though just seven vendors set up the first week, Izzard is confident the weekly market will grow into the room it has. It’s the only food source in town beside the Town Pump, so there’s a good chance he’s right. “It’s just doing something for the community,” Izzard said to a thankful customer. “Change the way people see Milltown.” Brooks Johnson

mountain lion management in the past. Populations have dipped and spiked in response to hunting pressure, but, as Region 2 wildlife manager Mike Thompson puts it, the agency never knew if it was accomplishing its goals “in real time.” If Thompson’s latest proposal to the FWP commission pans out, those days could be over. “We have the tools for the first time to be able to predict, with quite a bit of confidence, how the lion population will actually react to our harvest,” Thompson says. Those tools have come out of a string of recent studies in the West, particularly one conducted between 1997 and 2006 in the Garnet Mountains, east of Missoula. FWP biologist Jay Kolbe, a key field participant, says the first six years of the study saw increased hunting quotas for female lions in the Blackfoot River drainage. The second six years “turned off the spigot,” Kolbe says, virtually eliminating the harvest. “We watched that population rebound back to near pre-treatment levels. They were able to recover from heavy, heavy hunting pressure very quickly.” Kolbe says the recent proposal, which aims to reduce lion populations by 30 percent, will create a “pulsing” harvest pressure on female lions, with significant, short-term increases in quotas. This should allow the agency to avoid “the big sweeping changes in lion populations that we’ve had in the past when we’ve had to manage less precisely,” Thompson says. Local biologists have increasingly mentioned lions as possible contributors to population declines among other species. In the West Fork of the Bitterroot, where elk numbers have dropped dramatically in the past few years, initial data in FWP’s ongoing elk study has shown a higher percentage of lion predation than was expected. The agency is still a long way from drawing any conclusions about lion predation in the West Fork. The change in Region 2’s strategy for lion management is really a “trial,” Thompson says. “The question is the social side of it. Will people tolerate or support a decrease in lion numbers? Because right now, the way we’ve been managing lions, the result has been high lion numbers. That, combined with wolf, black bear and other factors, is really putting the stress on our prey.” Public comment on proposed lion harvest quotas for Region 2 ends May 25. Alex Sakariassen

etc. We’re now two weeks out from the 2012 primary and about five months from the general election. As phones ring and flyers slip through mail slots with increasing frequency, a broader question comes to mind: How the hell do these campaigns get our info? The average voter might not realize this, but the culprit is actually you. Remember all those boxes you filled in on your voter registration form: name, address, phone number, favorite breakfast cereal, yada yada yada? Yeah. All that gets compiled by county elections offices and passed up the ladder. It’s known as a voter file, and it’s available to any campaign (read: all of them) willing to pay a fee to the Montana Secretary of State’s office. SOS spokesperson Terri McCoy says Montana charges $5,000 for a one-year online subscription to the statewide voter file or $1,000 for a one-time download. The subscription includes an absentee ballot report as well, which lists all voters who cast their ballots by mail. McCoy explains that the absentee report can be particularly revealing: For campaigns, it indicates which voters should be targeted when ballots are mailed out in early May. It may seem fishy, the state selling voter names and addresses for so much dinero, but all that is public record and online access to the voter file was mandated by an act of Congress—the Help America Vote Act—back in 2002. Don’t worry. Certain sensitive information is protected, such as your driver’s license and Social Security numbers. The only way to get your physical address removed from the file, however, is by court order. Montana isn’t the only one compiling this sort of information. State political parties typically reorganize the voter file into their own databases. Other organizations compile their own, such as Montana Conservation Voters, which earlier this month called members to endorse attorney general candidate Pam Bucy and gubernatorial hopeful Steve Bullock. For-profit companies like Media One LLC sell demographically targeted information, databases that break out voter intel based on party allegiance, ethnicity, even gun ownership. The long and short of it is that your personal information is worth a lot. And in this day and age, campaigns have more than enough money to get it.

Shame on U It’s not just about rape anymore It’s good news that 22 states and the District of Columbia have signed onto Montana’s challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that gave corporations and Super PACs the same rights as human beings in regard to campaign spending. It’s a long shot that the court will reverse itself, but it’s certainly worth the fight to try and preserve Montana’s century-old Anti-Corruption Act. Still, when it comes to corruption, we can look a lot closer to home than D.C., as Missoula officials and personnel in the highest echelons of the University of Montana are exposed for their attempts to downplay alleged rapes. Three weeks ago, when writing on the issue of how certain politicians and public figures selectively “fight for Montanans,” this column addressed the announcement that both the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the U.S. Department of Education had launched investigations into numerous rapes that have plagued Missoula in the last few years. That column applauded UM President Royce Engstrom, Missoula Mayor John Engen and Missoula Chief of Police Mark Muir for their pledge to fully cooperate with the investigations. But in details revealed in a great and shocking series of articles by Missoulian reporter Gwen Florio last weekend, it becomes clear that Engstrom and Engen as well as UM Vice President Jim Foley went out of their way to cover up rape charges and ignore or intimidate alleged rape victims while protecting UM’s football players and now-shattered reputation. The emails Florio received in response to a Freedom of Information Act request tell the tale in no uncertain terms. Take, for instance, the email exchange between Foley and now-retired Dean of Students Charles Couture in March, concerning a student who said she’d been assaulted and wasn’t satisfied with the university’s response. In a classic case of blaming the victim, Foley inquires if it’s “not a violation of the student code of conduct for the woman to be publicly talking about the process and providing details about the conclusion?” He also tries to stop use of the term “gang rape” and asks, “Can anybody tell me where UM has used the terms ‘gang rape’ and ‘football players’ in any public document that the Missoulian would be referencing?” Couture responded to Foley, saying he used the term in reference to four UM

football players and an accomplice accused of gang-raping a woman “because that is what it was.” But for Foley and his willing gang of co-conspirators, including Engstrom, “date rape” was seen as a more acceptable term to use in the media.

For Jim Foley and his willing gang of co-conspirators, including Royce Engstrom, “date rape” was seen as a more acceptable term to use in the media.

The cover-up got so bad that an offduty Missoula police officer, Geoff Curtis, emailed UM’s administrators, saying, “I am writing to urge you all to stop this spiraling PR mess and take action instead of trying to defend your actions.” And what did Officer Curtis get in return for his excellent advice to UM’s top dogs? He got pounced on by Foley and reprimanded by Engen, who sent an email to Foley, Engstrom and Missoula Police Chief Mark Muir saying, “You also have my apologies.” Apologies for what? Because a good cop told the truth? Engen went on to ensure UM’s cover-up cabal that “Officer Curtis will be requesting a moment of your time in the near future to offer an apology in person for the inappropriate message and its content.” What we have at UM and in Missoula is now a full-blown scandal. No longer is it about trying to get justice for victims of rape. No longer is it about who was the

victim and who was the criminal. Now it’s about the serious ethical and character flaws of those at the top of the university and the city. Nor is it simply a Montana issue, since the Wall Street Journal joined in that Freedom of Information Act request. The ugly tale has now escaped local boundaries, despite the best efforts of those who should be seeking the truth to suppress, sanitize and camouflage it to save their own reputations. Attorney General Steve Bullock, who is on the campaign trail attempting to become Montana’s next governor, should be commended for taking on the Citizens United decision. But corruption doesn’t just come from unfettered campaign spending. What’s happening in Missoula right now deserves Bullock’s attention, too–and a full investigation, starting with the incriminating evidence in those newly released emails. These highly placed, well-paid individuals are Montanans who have been given the trust of the public and are working for wages and benefits paid by the public, which expects, in return, at least a modicum of integrity in public office and service. Montana already has ethics laws on the books, including MCA 2-2-103, which reads, “The holding of public office or employment is a public trust, created by the confidence that the electorate reposes in the integrity of public officers, legislators and public employees. A public officer, legislator or public employee shall carry out the individual’s duties for the benefit of the people of the state. … A public officer, legislator or public employee whose conduct departs from the person’s public duty is liable to the people of the state and is subject to the penalties provided … for abuse of the public’s trust.” It couldn’t be much clearer that the public’s trust–and the duty to the public—has been subsumed by public officials who were vastly more interested in hiding the truth about UM’s rapes than pursuing it. Despite the risks of alienating some powerful people during his campaign, Bullock would be well-served by turning his attention to Missoula and those who have impeded justice.

really isn’t much to debate, particularly for us laymen who aren’t out in the field doing the research. One thing we can agree on: Wolves are predators and they sometimes prey on the always delicious elk. Why wouldn’t they? That doesn’t mean they’re the only creatures seeking out wapiti and co. We have an increasing number of grizzly bears roaming an increasingly large range throughout western Montana, along with increasing mountain lion numbers. All that predator pressure has led to low elk calf counts in the Blackfoot River drainage, according to FWP biologist Jay Kolbe. Some of you already “know” where all the elk are going. You’ve seen things. You’re out there as much as anybody. You used to get “your” elk every year. Kolbe’s talk might not do much for you people, the barstool experts, but for the rest of us, the ones interested in what’s really going on out there in the woods, science might be a good place to start. —Jason McMackin

IRONY OF THE WEEK - A Scottish court fined truck driver David Loudon, 34, after he admitted to falling asleep at the wheel in Dumfries and Galloway and hitting a sign advising, “Tiredness can kill, take a break.” (BBC News) EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG - Wind farms could be contributing to climate change and affecting crops, according to new research based on satellite data of surface temperatures from Texas. The findings that wind farms actually warm up the surface of the land underneath them during the night could affect efforts to expand wind farms. “I feel that wind farms, if spatially large enough, might have noticeable impacts on local to regional meteorology,” said Liming Zhou of the State University of New York at Albany. John Dabiri, director of the California Institute of Technology’s Center for Bioinspired Wind Energy, said Zhou’s findings show “that we need to think carefully about the unintended consequences of any large-scale energy development, including green technologies.” (Discovery News) Earth has more than one moon, according to an international team of astronomers, although none is permanent or even observable. “At any time, there are one or two 1-meter-diameter asteroids in orbit around the Earth,” Robert Jedicke, an astronomer at the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy, said, adding that about once every 50 years, “there’s one the size of a garbage truck.” Jedicke explained these Earth-orbiting asteroids remain in orbit only until gravity from other planets in the solar system dislodges them, and they go back into orbit around the sun. (National Public Radio) BIG-BANG THEORY - After an Oklahoma state trooper stopped a vehicle for speeding in Okmulgee County, he questioned passenger Davis Lee Williams, 54, about a suspicious chemical odor. Williams ran away, but the trooper caught him. As Williams resisted, his pants exploded. Trooper Shiloh Hall said Williams had a portable meth lab, known as a one-pot lab, in his pants that burst during the struggle. He was uninjured but arrested. (Tulsa’s KOTV-TV) WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED - Police responding to a domestic disturbance in Myrtle Beach, S.C., charged Alesha Sommer Babcock, 33, with hitting Wayne Emmanuel Malcol Beachem, 37, with an inflatable hammer. Beachem blocked the attack, grabbed the hammer and threw it into the bushes, where officers found it. Babcock told them she remembered attacking Beachem with the inflatable novelty tool because she was trying to kill him. (Myrtle Beach’s The Sun News) SHOW BUSINESS - Arizona resident Jesus Llovera, 43, is suing actor Steven Seagal and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for his arrest, which the civil lawsuit claims was staged for a reality television show that followed Seagal’s exploits as a “deputized officer.” Llovera said Seagal and deputies raided his home because they suspected he was raising fighting roosters, although he insisted the more than 100 roosters on his property were for show, not for fighting. He noted the Sheriff’s Office SWAT team showed up in full riot gear, handcuffed him and took him outside, where Seagal waited, wearing camouflage and sunglasses and hoisting a rifle, while four cameras filmed the event for the cable series “Steven Seagal: Lawman.” The program was slated to premiere on the A&E Network but never aired. Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Dave Trombi denied that the search warrant was based on the needs of the production company, and the Sheriff’s Office explained that deploying a tank, a bomb robot and 40 deputies was a normal response. (Phoenix’s The Arizona Republic) QUANTIFYING INTANGIBLES - The Department of Health and Human Services is funding a panel to try to define and measure happiness. If successful in determining reliable measures of “subjective well-being,” they could become official statistics. The panel, organized by the nonprofit National Academies, includes experts in psychology and economics and has already met with two key figures in the U.S. statistical bureaucracy. “There has been a lot of momentum,” said Arthur Stone, a professor of psychiatry at Stony Book University who chairs the panel. Its budget is $370,000. (The Washington Post) DEAL OF A LIFETIME - After Antoinette Galluzzo admitted stealing $51,601.62 from a New Jersey youth program while employed by the city of Englewood and using the money to gamble, pay debts and cover rent, she was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay $10 a month restitution. Galluzzo’s attorney, Robert Galantucci, said even $10 a month is a lot for someone who is unemployed to pay. When Bergen County prosecutors argued that Galluzzo cashed in her pension and should have made a lump-sum payment, Judge Eugene H. Austin upheld the restitution arrangement, explaining, “I’m certainly not going to require her to pay more to set her up for failure so she gets a jail sentence.” (Bergen County’s The Record) PROBLEM SOLVED - Britain is facing a culinary crisis, thanks to the government’s immigration crackdown, which has created a shortage of Asian chefs and forced the closing of some Indian, Bangladeshi, Chinese and Thai restaurants. Britain has some 12,000 Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants, serving 2.5 million people a week, and thousands of Chinese and Thai ones. The government’s response has been to set up five “centers of excellence in Asian and Oriental cookery” to train jobless young Britons the art of making curry and other popular dishes. (The Washington Times) THERE GO THE LAMESTREAM MEDIA AGAIN - Declaring himself exasperated by the flood of “crazy” legislation introduced in the Republican-controlled Tennessee General Assembly, Republican Gov. Bill Haslam declined to criticize lawmakers. Instead, he blamed the news media for publicizing such measures as banning students from wearing revealing clothing to school instead of focusing on more substantive issues. (Associated Press)

f you find yourself adding columns of figures in a windowless room, one eye on the clock, or providing customer service to over-empowered weekend shoppers in a big-box store, you have our sympathy, but please know that things could be even worse. You could be in the public eye with a fine pedigree, an exalted title and the creeping sensation that you might well be deservedly blamed for breaking something as big as the University of Montana; you could be trying to tell Ravalli County’s residents that childhood vaccinations aren’t evil; you could be trying to dispense medical marijuana, never knowing if or when the feds will haul you away; you could be seeing the lifeless eyes of doe after doe after doe until you no longer even notice them; or you could be a lifeguard indoors, keeping watch over hordes of children, wondering which one will be responsible for the inevitable AFR (see below), which you will then have to fish from the pool. The obscure, windowless room or the retail checkstand starts to sound like a haven. Originally, we thought of these jobs as the five worst in Missoula, but we had to go just outside the county boundary to scoop up the task of a Ravalli County commissioner, and, ultimately, it wasn’t clear that these jobs were the worst so much as the most challenging. And that raises another issue: pity. Perhaps what you ought to take away from this is not so much that it sucks to be these jobholders but a little more compassion for the people who are called to do such risky and sometimes nasty things.

SOMEONE’S GOT TO DO IT photos by Chad Harder

POT PARANOIA

by Matthew Frank There’s no sign out front, no indication at all that behind this locked stripmall door near South Reserve Street, there’s a room full of marijuana plants

and a whiteboard listing the various strains that are sold. The discretion is understandable. Since the first wave of federal raids on Montana medical marijuana businesses in March 2011, 25 people have been indicted on federal drug charges, all facing years in prison. And a year ago, the Montana Legislature passed

strict medical marijuana reforms. The industry has been decimated. When it was booming, the state’s patient count topped 30,000. Today, it’s down to 10,000. The number of medical marijuana providers has dropped from close to 5,000 to about 400. The cops showed up and the crowd dispersed.

But Rob Kinzinger is still here, dispensing medical marijuana to more than 100 patients around Missoula, one of the last providers still in business. The soft-spoken, bald former timber-mill worker knows that this operation could end any day, with the DEA knocking down the door with drawn guns or merely by a state judge upholding

Last plant standing: Rob Kinzinger

Missoula Independent Page 14 May 24– May 31, 2012


parts of the new medical marijuana law that were intended to put providers like Kinzinger out of business but were enjoined last year. Many left the business anyway. Virtually all the storefronts that popped up around Missoula are gone. “I can’t think off the top of my head of anybody who’s still around,” Kinzinger says. That troubles him, because he knows that a lot of marijuana patients— more than 4,000 statewide—don’t have providers. Under the new state law, it’s harder to obtain a medical marijuana card. Doctors have been hazed away from issuing them. And, as of last month, the fees are higher. “With so many places being shut down and so many people being scared to be in business, there are so many people out there who don’t have a provider, who don’t have a place to go,” Kinzinger says. “Where are they going? To the black market. All [the feds] have done is create a bigger black market, forcing everybody to go back underground. I just don’t see how it makes it better.” Kinzinger says he’s lost at least 15 percent of his patients. He’s been here awhile, since well before the raids. He thinks he’s survived because of his business model. He grows where he dispenses, meaning he’s not transporting marijuana around the state. He’s the business’s only provider, so there’s no uncertainty surrounding which plants are associated with which provider and which patients. And, perhaps most importantly, he says, there isn’t a blinking neon pot leaf in the window. “I think that’s the thing that a lot of people were missing in this whole thing—you don’t need a big sign out front, ‘Hey, here I am,’” he says. “It’s legal and all, but why throw that in anybody’s face? It’s not about that.” Medical marijuana is still legal in Montana; federally, all marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance. But Kinzinger doesn’t talk much about that. He focuses on trying to carefully follow the state law, however murky, as the courts figure out how much of the new law is constitutional. The Montana Cannabis Industry Association challenged the new law last year, and it goes before the Montana Supreme Court May 30. Meanwhile, marijuana advocates were successful in placing a referendum of the new state law on the November 2012 ballot. Kinzinger doesn’t have a plan B. If he’s shut down, he says, he’ll be out looking for another job. “That’s why I got into doing this,” he continues. After working at the Stimson mill in Bonner for 15 years, “I couldn’t find a job to save my life. … I was running the whole shipping department out there, and it didn’t amount to a hill of beans.” He left Stimson with debilitating back pain and prescriptions for narcotics, he says, which he blames for his ballooning to almost 400 pounds. He pulls out his ID, the photo taken a couple years ago: He was huge. But he quit the pills and turned to a plant, and the pounds were shed. His shirt now hangs on him. “I’ve had patients come in whom I signed up in wheelchairs, and they walk

through the door now,” he says. “And it’s not because of something that modern medicine has done. It’s the marijuana. It reacts with certain diseases in that way. And when you see that, oh man, it just makes what I do so worth it.”

SAVED FROM DROWNING by Skylar Browning

Long before David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson donned siren-red bathing suits and ran across your television set, the lasting image of a lifeguard included a perfectly bronzed physique, a whistle around the neck or twirled around the fingers, shades and a smear of sunscreen on the beak. They watched over us and we ended up watching just as much of them; real-life neighborhood heroes. Not much of that iconic imagery fits lifeguards at Currents, Missoula’s public indoor swimming pool. There’s a whistle and plenty of people to watch—my goodness, is there a lot of screaming, splashing humanity to watch—but that’s about

All lifeguards have to deal with a certain amount of chaos, chemicals and crap, but most at least get the perks bestowed upon the likes of The Hoff and Pam. It’s a little harder to find the rewards for the Currents crew. “We do get to work outside at Splash for a few months during the summer,” offers Chelsea Beckwith, a 22-year-old University of Montana student who has worked as a lifeguard for a year and a half. “That’s how we put up with it all winter.” Beckwith is half-joking. She loves her job. She says the chlorine isn’t as bad as it used to be. There’s even talk of soundproofing the walls to deal with the noise. And those AFRs don’t happen nearly as often as people think—maybe once a month. Plus, Beckwith started at Currents four years ago, working at the front desk, and was eventually promoted to lifeguard. She’s one of many on staff who have worked their way up through a system that can groom a summer volunteer into a managerial position. “It’s hard when you’re stuck in here and it’s 80 degrees outside and gor-

ty training because of a harrowing neardrowning incident with one of her daughters. She wanted to know how to perform a water rescue and, if necessary, resuscitate someone should anything like her daughter’s scare ever happen again. Coty had no intention of becoming a fullfledged lifeguard until a part-time position later opened up at Currents, four years ago. “It can get wild when you have 225 or so people in the pool, at the capacity, that you’re in charge of,” says Coty. “That’s when you remember your training, you realize why we do in-service training every two weeks during the summer and you see exactly why you’re needed. I can tell you, we take our jobs very seriously.” Beckwith says rookie guards start at $8.07 an hour. During the fall and winter, Missoula Parks and Rec employs about 17 lifeguards. When Splash! opens in the summer, that number nearly triples to between 40 and 45. Even with the increased seasonal staff, some aspects of the job don’t change. Coty, who has been promoted

it. There’s no bronzed physique. No need for shades. Even less need for sunscreen. Instead, these thoroughly trained rescuers, capable of performing CPR on a child or lifting a distressed offensive lineman out of the deep end, are fending off much less glamorous elements than UV rays and hero worship. There’s the chlorine, which smells so strongly that you can feel it turning your hair green from the parking lot. There’s the noise, which during busy weekends can ricochet off the pool’s walls, creating a sound more piercing than a bushel of fire alarms. And don’t even mention the AFRs. (This would be the polite acronym for “Accidental Fecal Release,” or poop in the pool.)

geous,” says Beckwith, who’s also a certified scuba diver. “But at the same time, when it’s 20 degrees outside or 10 below, it’s great to wear shorts and a Tshirt and a bathing suit to work.” Of course, there’s another aspect to this gig that rises above work conditions. Lifeguards like Beckwith got into the business, especially at an indoor pool in Montana, because they’re up to the challenge of being responsible for the wellbeing of others. Above all, they’re there to save people. Brooke Coty doesn’t fit the usual profile of a Currents lifeguard. She’s a 39year-old mother of three who went through all of the requisite aquatics safe-

to the position of Aquatic Program Specialist, still lifeguards during the busy summer months. That means she gets to work outside, swim laps in the 50-meter pool with the sun on her back, twirl her whistle and wear sunscreen. For those few weeks, at least, she embodies that glossed perception of the perfect summer job. A real-life neighborhood hero, free from the confines of an indoor facility. Except for the occasional “Code Brown.” Those are still part of the job. “All lifeguards have to scrub toilets and handle the accidental releases,” she says. “Nobody is above it or beneath it, even the managers.”

SHOVELING BAMBI by Jessica Mayrer

The temperature warms on a recent fall morning, making the smell on the side of Highway 93 in Victor even more pungent. Flies swarm. The stench rises from what’s left of a pregnant doe and her two unborn fawns. They’re scattered in pieces along the southbound lanes. “I think a semi might have got that one,” says Montana Department of Transportation crew leader Scott Reesman. Big rigs, minivans and sedans whiz by as Reesman shovels the dead doe from the road. It’s barely 10 a.m. and he’s already picked up four animals between Victor and Darby, not including the two fawns. MDT is charged with hauling road kill from highways. It’s a safety hazard, and someone’s got to deal with it. In the Bitterroot, that someone is often Reesman. He and his four-man crew pick up roughly eight such animals per week in the Bitterroot Valley. During the fall rut, when bucks prowl for mates, the workload increases. Reesman isn’t phased by the stench. The animals’ lifeless eyes don’t disturb him, nor does the blood and intestines, the maggots and flies. He’s a pragmatist. There are a lot of deer out there. And he’s got more work to do. “It doesn’t smell good, but you just kind of block it out,” he says. “It’s just, like, hurry up and go.” Reesman is a 50-year-old Montana native and father of three. He’s worked for MDT for more than three decades. Carcass removal is only one of the tasks he oversees. He’s also responsible for ensuring roads are cleared of snow in the winter, bridges are free from logjams in

the spring and roads are repaved during summer. Reesman and his crew try to get to the animals as quickly as possible. But, as there are bridges to seal and waterways to clear, sometimes it takes a couple of days. By then, animals can get pretty ripe. “Flies will be blowing, starting maggots before we even get there overnight,” he says. “I had a deer so fat and bloated that it popped and shot warm blood on the side of my face.” Reesman says his favorite part of the job is composting the remains—“the funnest part of the roadkill for me.” Reesman is, in fact, a carcass-composting pioneer. In 2005, he helped launch the state’s first animal composting facility in Victor. It’s a model for roughly a dozen others like it across the state. The Victor “deer pit,” as Reesman calls it, is located just off Highway 93 at mile marker 62.7. Driving toward the pit, one first sees tall dark compost piles. Inching closer, it becomes clear these aren’t ordinary compost piles: Stray limbs, hoofs, skulls and hunks of fur are scattered about the site. In addition to helping launch the deer pit, Reesman also provided his expertise for MDT’s carcass composting manual. It’s a 12-page primer published in 2007 that spells out the ins and outs of breaking down road kill. The process is simple: Dead deer are placed in a bin with wood chips. Heat and moisture are applied to help grow bacteria, which break down organic materials over time. MDT’s composting manual explains, “The MDT process is much like building a sandwich with road kill in the middle that will cook themselves into compost.” Heat kills anything that could harm

humans, Reesman says. “I would put this on my garden.” The compost is typically just left at the pit. However, two years ago, MDT launched a pilot project, using the deer compost as fertilizer on a handful of rocky areas along the sides of Bitterroot roads. (The Montana Department of Environmental Quality vetted that project to ensure it was safe.) “At least stuff grew,” Reesman says. DEQ oversees animal composting sites. There’s an incentive to create them because they take a significant load off traditional landfills, and there’s a lot of roadkill to dispose of. MDT spokeswoman Lori Ryan says oftentimes collisions aren’t reported and MDT divisions across the state can use different methodology when tallying numbers, meaning it can be tough to get a handle on the total number of animals in Montana killed by vehicle collisions. According to the “MDT Carcass Database,” the department picked up 6,395 animals last year. Mule and whitetail deer accounted for 5,906 of those. Of the remainder, 161 were elk, 62 were antelope and there were six grizzly bears, 32 black bears, 30 moose, six mountain lions and 66 classified as “unknown.” According to the Western Transportation Institute, a Montana State University-based research organization, there are about 1.5 million collisions between vehicles and large mammals nationally each year. Reesman estimates that MDT retrieves about 650 animals annually on Highway 93 between Lost Trail Pass and Victor. Today, he gets back into his truck after loading a flattened carcass and asks this reporter, “So, do you still think it’s a dirty job?”

Government is one of those easily romanticized realms—“West Wing,” anyone? As it turns out, it can be a thankless job. In the West especially, where counties span large tracts of land, the elected position of county commissioner has historically entailed organizing services among sparse populations with an unreliable budget.

the population is an interesting combination of fiscal Republicans, Tea Partiers, libertarians, Democrats and far-left liberals. That means that no matter who’s in the county commissioners office, somebody’s mad about it. In fact, most constituents are well to the right of center, and recently, since the rise of last year’s kooky state legislature (you know, the one that tried to instill a Code of the West and stamp out medical marijuana against voters’ wishes and that came up with all kinds of climate-change-

That’s one challenge for Ravalli County’s five commissioners, who work full-time for between $50,000 and $55,000 a year. There are many others. Hamilton, the county seat and largest town, has only about 4,400 of the people who live in the county. The rest of the 40,300 residents are scattered among loosely linked pockets. The spread means higher costs for roads, power lines, water and other public services. Making that even more difficult is that 73 percent of the county is Forest Service land, which

denial and anti-women’s health legislation), there’s been even more extremism among Ravalli County residents. What do you have to deal with as a Ravalli County commissioner? For one thing: Parents who refuse vaccinations for their children under all circumstances. Last year, the Montana Department of Health and Human Services reported that only 53.8 percent of children in Ravalli County ages 24 to 35 months are up to date with their immunizations, which compares to the national average of 76

means it’s not taxable. Instead, the county gets a good chunk of its funds from state government. Last year, those funds were renewed with a bipartisan bill. But if you have to pass a bill to pay your bills, it’s not like getting a steady paycheck. Meanwhile, the county’s budget is still being eaten away each year, and it’s the county commissioners who have to decide, “Hmmm, who or what will get less money now?” Let’s throw another ingredient into the mix. Ravalli is a politically polarized county. Rural Montana attracts all sorts— from anti-government recluses to backto-the land hippies and artists—and so

percent. A recent outbreak of whooping cough in Ravalli County might not be a coincidence. The outbreak is statewide, but the 48 cases in Ravalli County give it the highest tally of any county in the state. Religion and fears of ties to autism are a part of the aversion to vaccines, but so is skepticism of government. That kind of skepticism seeps into several areas of policy, such as the wolf issue. Anti-wolf sentiment is high in the valley, and Little Red Riding Hood reports of wolves’ eyes glowing from the darkness of the forest and of wolves killing livestock (and what if they were babies?)

FORGET “WEST WING” by Erika Fredrickson


have gone from a kind of citizen science to anger and rumbling hysteria. The wolf, which was reintroduced to the West by the feds, of course, has been the scapegoat for low elk numbers, even though other factors—more hunting, an inflated elk population in previous years and development encroaching on elk habitat—contribute to their decline. County commissioners aren’t tasked with these issues, but the anti-government, anti-taxes sentiment does seep into the commissioners’ realm. Supporting an education system and health services when a vocal majority doesn’t feel they should have to fund it with tax dollars can’t be easy. Here’s the rub. Currently, the five Ravalli County commissioners seem to share the anti-wolf and, ironically, antigovernment sentiment. They ’ve expressed recently that they’d like a “seat at the table” with Fish, Wildlife and Parks in the way the agency manages wolves, despite the fact that the commissioners aren’t trained to make policy decisions based on science. In March, the commission adopted a large predator control policy that calls for larger quotas and longer wolf hunting seasons. Last August, the commission added fuel to the fire by having an “emergency wolf meeting.” Also, earlier this year, the commissioners asked for a “seat at the table” with the Forest Service to make policy about forest management—another role that theoretically requires forest science and policy training. So, is being a county commissioner such a tough role if you, your colleagues and many of your constituents are all of the same mindset? Maybe not. But if you were a newbie commissioner who understood, say, that wildlife management shouldn’t be based on citizen anecdotes, it sure could be. Dave Smith, a Democrat running for county commissioner this year, could have the difficulty of battling a commission that doesn’t have faith in FWP or any other government agency. Smith has already said that no matter what his views on forests and wolves, it’s not the role of the commission to decide such matters. It might be a long road ahead.

NOT EASY BEING POTUM by Alex Sakariassen

The past two years have been anything but kind to the University of Montana’s administration. If it isn’t homeowners renewing concerns about moving the College of Technology to the UM golf course, it’s environmentalists highlighting problems with the university’s biomass boiler proposal. The Grizzlies debated whether to stay in the Big Sky Conference (they did). Officials discussed expelling Daniel Thew, last fall’s football streaker (they didn’t). Then, of course, there’s the rape investigation thing. So that sucks. All of this makes a compelling case for 2012 being pretty much the worst time to be the new guy on campus.

Mistakes have been made: University of Montana President Royce Engstrom

Royce Engstrom took the helm as UM president less than two years ago, on the heels of George Dennison’s 20-year reign. Things looked downright peachy back then. Still, Engstrom, who had served as UM’s provost since 2007, didn’t seem to sugarcoat the path that lay ahead of him when he was a finalist for the presidency. “It certainly is a challenging task,” he told the Indy in September 2010, about two weeks before he got the position. “The University of Montana has the potential to be one of the finest institutions in the country,” Engstrom also said, “and I am pleased to be in a position to vie for the leadership.” He wasn’t the only one pleased by the prospect. Everyone sang his praises, from faculty to the outgoing president. “I think highly of him,” Dennison said at the time. “People do think highly of him. He’s done a lot of good work.” Engstrom entered the position with an annual salary of $280,000. (The governor makes just over $108,000 a year.) Now, public opinion is singing a different tune. Comment boards lit up with harsh criticism following Engstrom’s terse announcement March 29 that he’d fired Athletic Director Jim O’Day and football head coach Robin Pflugrad. “This

is insanity at its highest level!” a Facebook user wrote on O’Day’s Facebook wall the day of the firings. “Engstrom is crazy, he could never have an athletic director who has worked harder or brought as much dignity and professionalism to UM. He screwed up big time on this one and has lost my support completely.” Others on local media comment boards weren’t quite as polite. Engstrom still hasn’t explained why UM fired O’Day and Pflugrad. But that backlash wasn’t the beginning, nor was it the end. Last December, the university hired former Montana Supreme Court Justice Diane Barz to head an investigation into a disturbing rash of sexual assaults around the campus. Some incidents involved past or present Griz football players; others indicated the use of drugs by alleged rapists. Throughout the winter, Engstrom supplied some updates on the administration’s progress and said changes were in the offing. Officials reviewed the way they handled rape reports. Education about sex assaults was stepped up on campus. Still, the incidents have left UM, and Engstrom, with a black eye that refuses to fade. Even in the midst of the Barz study, Dean of Students Charles Couture was told of a sexual assault perpetrated by an international student.

Before the case could be pursued further, the alleged assailant fled the country. And then, last week, UM emails obtained by the Missoulian showed an administration struggling to preserve its image while some were, understandably, demanding more accountability and transparency. Engstrom was out of the country and unavailable to comment for this story. So we talked to George Dennison, back in Missoula this month after a year of work with the Colorado State University System. Dennison says he left town partly so Engstrom didn’t feel in his first years that he had a former president looking over his shoulder. “When you go into the job, you go in recognizing that it’s virtually 24-7,” Dennison says. “People don’t mind calling any time of the day to raise an issue. You have to take a commitment that this is what I’m here for, and you can try very hard if you’d like to delegate things to other people, but delegation doesn’t mean you escape the responsibility, because ultimately it comes back to the president.” Dennison says the biggest challenge of his presidency came in the spring of 2004, when news broke of a nearly $1 million deficit in UM’s athletic budget. Part of the problem was due to an

accounting error, but, according to Dennison, the athletic department had overspent itself by $500,000. It was the “most embarrassing moment of my life,” Dennison says. “But the only way you deal with difficult situations is to be right out front and simply say, ‘Here’s what we’re doing and here’s why.’” Dennison is somewhat familiar with the position Engstrom’s in now regarding sexual assaults. They happened on Dennison’s watch as well. “One athlete involved in that way is too many,” he says. “Even one student involved in such episodes is too many. … We had a couple occasions of rape or alleged rape over the course of the years I was president. All you can do is deal with them straightaway.” Engstrom announced the completion of Barz’s report on nine alleged sexual assaults on March 22. But the bad news hasn’t let up. One female student was attacked on the sidewalk near UM in March. Another student told authorities she was sexually assaulted in her dorm room, but later asked police to drop the case. Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Justice announced it was scrutinizing Missoula law enforcement agencies and UM over their responses to rape allegations over the past three years. The investigation has only worsened what was already a public relations nightmare for the university. Whispers of decreased enrollment are sweeping across campus. Donors have pulled financial support, in part due to the O’Day and Pflugrad firings. Despite all this, Engstrom has still recorded and released his weekly President’s Update videos, two-minute missives on the latest news from UM in which he usually wears a smile. He took to the dais March 12 for the 2012 commencement ceremony, offering a warm welcome to friends and family from all over the country and congratulating more than 3,500 graduates on their accomplishments. “This has been a challenging year in many regards, but it’s also been a wonderfully productive year,” Engstrom said in his final video update of the semester, May 8. “We’ve completed quite a number of faculty searches … and Provost [Perry] Brown tells me that we were successful in recruiting almost all of our top candidates in those searches.” To hear Dennison tell it, those are the real payoffs. He feels a strong sense of achievement looking back on the millions he raised from the private sector for scholarships, programs and new buildings. He takes a “great deal of pride” in his development of the athletic department. As president of the University of Montana—or POTUM—he says, you have to “take the heat when the heat has to be taken.” But Dennison says those 20 years were the highlight of his life. “I look back on those years and feel very good about where we were when I came and where the institution was when I left. That’s personal satisfaction.” Will Engstrom be able to say the same thing in two decades? editor@missoulanews.com

The first time I ate garlic flowers was for breakfast on a train from Beijing to Ulan Bator, Mongolia. The dining car didn’t have a menu. You sat down and they brought you food. I went there as soon as the train left the station and was happy to find it open. A server delivered a plate of stir-fried chopped green things with pork and oyster sauce and a bowl of rice. It was years before that I realized that the pencilthick green things were pieces of garlic flowers and flower stalks, which are collectively known as scapes. They were at once spice and vegetable, and a perfect companion to the pork and oyster sauce. If the servers hadn’t moved me along, I could have sat there for hours, watching workers doing Tai Chi in front of factory after factory while I ate pork and scapes until I exploded. Garlic flowers are a byproduct of the crop’s cultivation, and some growers see them as more nuisance than bonus, because they have to be removed, which takes work. Picking garlic flowers is based on the same principle by which steers are castrated. Without the option of expending bodily resources on sexual reproduction, the organism grows larger. Some gardeners, citing “plant integrity” concerns, don’t pick off their garlic flowers. I want big bulbs, so I pick the flowers. And then I happily eat them. Some farmers are savvy enough to realize that garlic flowers are not only delicious, but they’re an extra something that you can harvest and sell, when pickings are often slim. But these garlic growers are in the minority. Most commercially grown garlic, the kind you’re likely to buy at the store, is of the nonflowering type, called softneck, while the flowering types are called hardnecks. Your best bet for tracking down some hardneck flowers is at farmers markets from now until mid-June or at fancy grocery stores. If you’re lucky enough to have a garlic patch of your own, and wise enough to have planted hardneck, then a stroll to your garden is all it takes. When the flowers emerge depends on the variety of hardneck and the climate where it’s grown. Once they appear, the stalks grow quickly, curling around like cartoon pig tails until two full curls are completed. After a week or two, the stalks then uncurl and stand straight up. With the

stalk fully extended, the bud finally opens into a spectacular flower. For both culinary and agricultural purposes, you want to pick the stalks no later than the curled state, so the bulbs grow big and because as the stalks straighten out they lose their tenderness and become woody. But for aesthetic purposes it’s nice to leave the flowers on a few of the plants. The bulbs on the non-castrated plants will be smaller, but you get to look at the flowers. I harvest garlic flowers by grabbing the stalk as low as I can, right where it emerges, and pulling straight up with a smooth gentle tug, like pulling a blade of grass. To cook them, cut off the flower’s dry tip, and the rest—stalk and flower—is edible. You can do

Who you’re drinking with: Families, regulars, youngsters and oldsters gathered in the wood-laden warehouse to give where the giving’s good. It was busy but not quite packed. Children were coloring on the patio, old friends met up at the bar and dozens checked out this week’s table full of beautiful butterflies. Wednesdays can get crazy, Walker Scarborough

tells me between pouring refills of Eddy Out and Lake Missoula Amber. Some come for a specific group, he says, but total volume can be chalked up to weather and timing just the same. In general, people know when to come out and support the community. “We always have a good time Wednesdays at the Northside,” he says. Show me the money: It’s an easy, open application process to get your group on that chalkboard, but you’d better plan ahead. As of now, they’re booked through Christmas. Scarborough couldn’t say exactly how much gets raised on average, but it can be substantial. When it was the Max Wave’s turn, the place was overflowing and their coffers were, too. Where: Christmas comes early at the Northside Kettlehouse, 313 N. First St. W., Wednesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. —Brooks Johnson Happiest Hour celebrates western Montana watering holes.

SPOTLIGHT gettin’ lucky I got lucky when he pulled the car over and drove us to our door. Never got a name, never saw him again; he must have been a leprechaun incarnate. He took no money and let us pick the music. Even offered to get us stoned. Besides the dog getting the front seat and the three of us squeezing in the back of the coupe, it was a hitchhiker's dream. Accidental hitchhiker, anyway. It all started earlier that morning in a cabin in the Lubrecht Forest, up Highway 200 near Potomac. My buddy's girlfriend drove separate, needing to drive back for work early that morning. So it was my girlfriend, me and him, looking for the keys to our car. Terror struck. We called Shannon, already at work, and she texted back quickly: “I have your keys. I don't get off until 5.” It wouldn't be so bad to wait seven hours, What: “Tell Us Something: I Got Lucky” live storytelling Who: Nine locals Where: The Top Hat When: Tue., May 29, 6 PM

would it? We were already a little stir crazy from the crowded cabin, so we walked out to the highway and stuck out our thumbs for the first time. An hour passes. Two. No dice, but we're hopping along just fine, excited to be so proactive about our position. We stop at a restaurant in Potomac and watch the Griz game while eating what we joked could be our last meal. Hence, I ordered extra bacon and extra avocado. Sated, we set off again. We hit the jackpot in about 20 minutes—a young guy in a late-1990s Ford Taurus hits the breaks and waves us up. Running with our water jugs and bleary eyes, we must've looked pretty silly. I was ready to walk the whole 30 miles (we really didn't want to wait for Shannon), but that bacon did the trick. He dropped us off at our apartment on South and Higgins, and kept on down 93. More riveting tales—that is, tales more riveting than mine—take the stage at The Top Hat for the second time this year. Nine selected storytellers passionately present for 10 minutes apiece on the theme of the night, “I Got Lucky.” With the Irish presence in this town, there's bound to be some epic wins for your ears. —Brooks Johnson

MOUNTAIN HIGH W ho amongst us hasn’t briefly fantasized about becoming a mountain man or woman? Forget “briefly.” During hunting season, it’s a constant thought for me. But my imagineering doesn’t involve too many fantasies of a carefree life in the out-of-doors; instead, it is full of skepticism and fear. You see, I am a poor hunter. I am out of shape. I am always hungry. I sweat. A lot. I have not recently killed an elk, and I missed a deer from 10 yards distant this past season. I fear that if I had to feed and support myself, as well as earn money from pelts, I most likely would’ve frozen to death/ starved to death/eaten poisonous berries to death/fallen from my mule to death/been bitten by poisonous spiders to death/been eaten by a wolverine to death/kidnapped by a tribe of beautiful French maidens and made to be their slave, sexually, to death (Hey, it’s my imagineering.). That said, there are plenty of men and women out there who are hardier than me. Folks who probably could go back in time and make a go of it in the wilderness. Some of these folks might be at the 31st annual Wild Horse Rendezvous sponsored by the Sapphire Mountain Men. Even if you’re not a hardy soul, you

and the family may still enjoy the goings on. There are pre-1840-style camps set-up all weekend, with rendezvousers in period dress (no rubber soles/all handmade) cooking up grub in tin pans and cast iron over an open flame. Why 1840? This was the era before revolvers, before technology took over, when muskets used flintlock ignition systems rather than the more reliable percussion caps. Other events include black powder shooting competitions, as well as tomahawk, knife throwing and primitive archery contests, not to mention kids’ activities galore. However, the highlight has to be Sunday’s 1 p.m. cannon shoot, with participants firing cannon balls at a 55- gallon drum (post-1840s) about a hundred yards away. Come one, come all you flatlanders, and learn how your great-great-great grandpappy “Frenchy” St. LaCroix lived. The 31st annual Wild Horse Rendezvous takes place from Fri., May 25, to Mon., May 28. Take Exit 70 (the Cyr exit) from I-90 and follow the signs. For a complete list of events and times, go to sapphiremtmen.blogspot.com.

Fire, ice and HBO A Q&A with MisCon’s featured guest, author George R.R. Martin by Alex Sakariassen

If you haven’t heard of George R.R. Martin’s fivebook-and-counting fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire, odds are you’ve been living with wildlings up beyond the Wall. That or you’re just more familiar with the acclaimed television adaptation “A Game of Thrones,” currently wrapping its second season on HBO. Either way, you can understand why the creator of Westeros is commonly referred to as America’s Tolkien. Dragons, swords, crowns, mystical dreams—what’s not to love? When I heard Martin was going to be in Missoula for this weekend’s MisCon 26, I nearly lost my head. His schedule these days is chaotic, his con appearances scarce. Martin is actively writing for and promoting the HBO series. He’s also hard at work on the sixth and supposedly second-to-last installment of his books, The Winds of Winter. Still, Martin agreed to take some time to chat about his fictional land of Westeros, the challenges of bringing it to television and why he chose Missoula as one of his few Con stops for 2012. Indy: First off, I have to say, I’ve been a huge fan of the books for years. Where on earth did you come up with such an expansive and detailed world? George R.R. Martin: It didn’t all come in a bolt of lightning. It’s sort of grown. There are some writers who create their worlds first. [J.R.R.] Tolkien was famous for that. He began work on the world we now call Middle Earth with the Silmarillion when he was in the trenches of World War I, and continued to deepen and enrich it and create more aspects of it throughout his lifetime. He didn’t actually write a story in the world—The Hobbit being the first—until he’d been

working on it for more than 20 years. That’s not how I do it. For me, the story comes first and the world’s grown with the story. When I first started writing this in 1991, I had the characters and a scene that had come to me very vividly, the first chapter where they find the direwolf pups. But I didn’t really know what the world was, who the people were, what were around them. … I’m still adding things. I’m still hopefully making the world deeper and wider and richer on all levels. Indy: I have a hard enough time myself keeping track of the characters and allegiances and such. How do you keep it all straight while plotting the course forward? GM: With increasing difficulty. The books are large, and they’ve gotten very complex. There are times when I question my sanity and say, “Why did I ever get into this? Why did I toss all these balls in the air?” [Laughs] Having tossed them in the air, though, I feel compelled to keep on juggling as fast as I can. For the most part, I think it works. But I have files on my computer. I have genealogies, I have maps, I have timelines with major events in Westerosi history—all these things I’ve developed over the years. But I have less of all of that than you might actually imagine. Most of this stuff is still in my head. Indy: What brings you to the Missoula Convention? Do you have a sizeable fan base here that was screaming out for you to come visit? GM: I’ll find out. I’ve never been to Montana

before. I get a lot of these convention invitations. … I’ve been going to science fiction/fantasy conventions since 1971, when I sold my first story. Of course, these days I get a lot more invitations than I ever had before, given the popularity of the show and the books. I can only do about six a year; any more than that and I wouldn’t get any work done at all. MisCon invited me about three years ago. I was glad to accept. I like to go to different parts of the country and give my readers a chance to meet me and me to meet them. The three years have gone by in the wink of an eye, and we’re about to fly in. Indy: You’ve been participating as a writer on the show as well. In fact, you wrote this weekend’s battleheavy episode “Blackwater,” which airs while you’re here at MisCon. Is it tricky adapting your own material for the screen? GM: It’s one of the hardest things to do. The process of adaptation inevitably means that you have to cut things, you have to change things. When you’re writing it in prose form, you can just let it all hang out and write something as big as the imagination. That’s certainly true for the Battle of Blackwater, which is gigantic. But when you’re doing a TV show, you have certain hard realities: the budget that you have to work with, the shooting schedule, the run time. You don’t get to have an hour and 15 minutes or an hour and a half because you want it. I can add extra pages to a book or a chapter. I can’t add extra pages to a script. … I can’t say it’s a fun process, but I think it’s worthwhile when the final product turns out good, and I think “Blackwater” has turned out very well. Indy: Is there any character on the show who you’ve felt closely resembles the original creation from the books? GM: Certainly Peter Dinklage as Tyrion. He’s the perfect Tyrion. We didn’t even look at anyone else for that role. We did not do any auditions, we did not have any readings, we did not explore anyone else. We knew we wanted Peter Dinklage. He was really the only one who could play the role. Indy: Has your involvement with the show helped you at all with the creative process on the books, or are you trying to keep those two things separate, the books and the show? GM: Well, they are separate things. But it’s all taking place in the same world and it’s about largely the same characters, so as long as I sort of keep my head in Westeros, it all helps. Author George R.R. Martin will be appearing this weekend at MisCon 26, at Ruby’s Inn and Convention Center, with book signings the mornings of Saturday, May 26, and Monday, May 28, and a reading at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 27. Don’t miss the latter, as it could be a new excerpt from the next book, The Winds of Winter. Go to miscon.org for more info.

Scope Noise Books Film Movie Shorts Jamestown Revival It’s not hard to hear what Jamestown Revival is trying to revive: the upbeat lament of Southern soul. But the band is two young white guys from Austin, so it’s no surprise that the sound they’re searching for is filtered through the concave lens of contemporary indie pop. The result is spare but accessible songs driven by pretty harmonies and punchy guitar riffs. It’s a sound that has already garnered the band a shot at the cover of Rolling Stone and an appearance on “Last Call with Carson Daly,” despite having only released one four-song EP. It’s palatable and nostalgic pop for a generation—myself included—that can access all of the sounds and styles of the past from the effortless comfort of ye olde internet connection. The edges of the great Stax sound have been softened,

Black Bananas Jennifer Herrema—frontwoman of Black Bananas, which may or may not be the new name of Royal Trux—describes herself as “a pioneer of comprehensive nonexclusive opposition rock.” We’ve all been to plenty of shows that started with the crowd chanting “comprehensive non-exclusive opposition rock—and roll!” but maybe she should just say

Leland Sundries The Foundry EP L’Echiquier Records

On “Monitor Arms,” Nick Loss-Eaton sings of shipbuilders swilling and spilling their beers and how a 9-volt battery is all that he needs to set off airraid sirens “just to pass the time.” It’s an expertly written song soaked in stark imagery, but I can’t tell if it’s aided or undermined by his oddly flat voice. Loss-Eaton has a monotone delivery that can be like listening to Steven Wright front a folk band. Maybe it’s not that bad, but you get the idea. He makes Jeff Tweedy sound like an “American Idol” winner. Here’s the weirdest thing: as grating as he starts off, LossEaton has a way of growing on you over time. I credit his writing. The breezy “Bywater Rag”

M. Ward Wasteland Companion Merge Records

Given M. Ward’s stint with supergroup Monsters of Folk, I was worried this album would be all sorts of whispery, the way he likes to sing. Fortunately, he proved me wrong, breaking through those trademark vocals on the second track, “Primitive Girl,” and maintaining some strength in his lungs through the next 10. Occasionally meandering into fields of pop with psychedelic flourishes, he finds his way out like a farmer

making Jamestown Revival easy to swallow but hard to feel going down. “I was only seventeen,” they sing on “Ain’t It a Shame,” “Finding out that the world was mean.” The world is mean, but Jamestown Revival is too nice to really let the listener know. When they sing, “I sold out: / Go to school / Get a job / Pay the bills while my joy is robbed,” they sound sort of OK with it. (Ted McDermott) Jamestown Revival plays the Badlander Monday, May 28, at 10 PM, with The Lusitania, Bellamaine and The Hasslers. $5. “glam.” That’s the best way to describe the sneering vocals, heavy riffs and liberal use of artificial harmonics that make a Black Bananas performance like a metal show from the ’80s, only better. Because now we know what rock was going to do after 1992. What rock did was make Motley Crüe sound ironic. Black Bananas sounds ironic, too, in that they are clearly a retro band. Yet they play with genuine feeling songs that genuinely rock, so that you start out enjoying how trashy they are and wind up just enjoying. It’s some next-level irony, like when Bizarro Superman has to protect the city. At a certain point—I’m going to say the saxophone solo in “Overpass”—the whole sincerity matrix collapses on itself and becomes simple, ear-ringing fun. (Dan Brooks) Black Bananas plays the Palace Friday, May 25, at 9 PM, with The Hussy and Shahs. $8. covers late-night laundromat lights, shootin’ dice and other scenes straight out of the sweltering South. “Giving Up Redheads,” a country ditty that departs from the EP’s otherwise dark Americana, has some laugh-outloud lines. The full band is tight, but Leland Sundries lives and dies with Loss-Eaton. Don’t let his voice throw you off. Somehow it’s a perfect fit. (Skylar Browning ) Leland Sundries plays Monk’s Bar Saturday, May 26, at TK PM. $TK.

to his folksy tool shed. He slows down the jangly pop-folk halfway through until it's nearly ambient; the title track is as vast as the space between the eight studios where he recorded. The non-Zooey half of She & Him worked with 18 different musicians around the country for Wasteland. Collaboration is good, but this tends to sound like an M. Ward sampler mix at times. It lacks cohesion, each track trying to do something different, without a common element tying them into a neat package normally called an album. The beat picks up again but never blisters like the first half. Like a roller-coaster building excitement on the way up, there is no way back after you descend. Still, it’s a pretty great ride. (Brooks Johnson) M. Ward plays the Wilma Theater Sat., May 26, at 9 PM. $23/$21 advance.

Novelist Craig Lancaster has never shied away from exposing the darkest corners of ordinary existence. Nor, for that matter, from uncorking the feelgood triteness of popular feeling. And in his first compilation of published and unpublished short fiction, Quantum Physics and the Art of Departure, he

Quantum Physics and the Art of Departure Craig Lancaster paperback, Missouri Breaks Press 250 pages, $14.00

exhibits a scope equally as bleak as his novel The Summer Son and equally as saccharine as his novel 800 Hours of Edward. “Love isn’t enough,” Lancaster writes, and these bitter and sweet stories set out to demonstrate that shattering maxim. The pieces collected in Quantum Physics go to flagrant extremes. “Sad Tomato: A Love Story” is quintessentially gritty Lancaster, a horrifying tale of sadomasochism and murder, whereas “Comfort and Joy” is a mawkish drama concerning a lonely former NASA engineer who unintentionally becomes the father-figure to a young boy. With similarly weird duality, “Alyssa Alights” reads as a graphic, point-by-point record of a runaway girl’s descent into homelessness and depravity, which contrasts with “Cruelty to

Animals,” a yarn I can only describe as a felinethemed romantic satire. For much of Quantum Physics, there seems to be two Craig Lancasters at work: the Lancaster who narrates with the viciousness of Donald Ray Pollack, and a second Lancaster, the one who strives for the semi-liquid affectation of O. Henry. Fortunately, much of Quantum Physics is populated by the sorts of drifters and desperate idealists whom Lancaster is best suited to portray. No amount of sappy twists can interfere with the intensity of his potent characterizations and assured style. Characters like Jim Quillen, from “She’s Gone” (and who also appeared in The Summer Son), are weak and strong-willed at the same time, consistently anguished and frustrated. But they are never artificial. Lancaster is an exceptional archivist of angst, and his latest book is filled with the downcast routines of extraordinary losers who construct their own suffering and then drown in it. The title story is the finest of the bunch, a heartbreakingly precise study of a troubled married man living out an alternate love affair with a woman halfway across the world. The first six paragraphs could be used as a mnemonic on how to write flash fiction. A sense of urban ennui is tangible here, drawing the reader into a terrible place of yearning and desperation in the form of Ross Newbry and his uneasy desire. Restless hope pervades Quantum Physics and the Art of Departure, along with the rest of Lancaster's best work, wherein the possibility of redemption is curtailed by abrupt, shocking or unfinished-seeming climaxes. As with his two novels, alienation, attraction and repulsion are predominant fixtures in Lancaster's world, where Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle applies as rigorously to the momentum of love and hate as it does to colliding particles. Billings, a frequent backdrop in these naturalistic fictions, is rendered as a crossroads of yearning and sudden violence—the closed system from which some form of equilibrium, however harsh, is occasionally attained. Once again, Lancaster shows his mastery of writing about perfectly imperfect human beings and their need for contentment or self-destruction, and mostly for both, simultaneously. arts@missoulanews.com

Blade Scout CX $4995

Damsels makes you care beyond ascots by Molly Laich

It’s unclear to me whether the way the women in Damsels in Distress behave is meant to be an exaggeration of a certain kind of lady in college, or if my instincts are correct and no one has ever acted this way anywhere, ever. Is Seven Oaks a real school? Do girls sometimes go to keggers dressed for a garden party? I’m from the Midwest and I skipped the college dorm room experience, so, honestly, I don’t know. East Coasters are not like us, after all.

Your Complete Hobby Store for All your Aircraft Needs

Woody Allen, and yet they are entirely themselves. They tend to feature intellectuals who are all dressed up in self-awareness, but with nowhere to go. In Metropolitan (1989), the women wear taffeta with poofy shoulders. (The insistent billowing made me feel claustrophobic.) The women of Damsels in Distress are just as menacing in pastels, and unlike me, they know a lot of different ways to tie scarves around their necks. There’s a point to all of this, the

The amazing Blade Scout CX may only weigh a little over half an ounce (17 grams) but it will have you flying circles around other helis like it. State-of-the-art 2.4GHz radio control with advanced Blade engineering and electronics make it all possible. And it’s so easy to fly, you’ll be able to do it even if you’ve never flown before.

THE TREASURE CHEST Crafts & Hobbies 1612 Benton • 549-7992

Damsels in Distress There are the damsels. Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) speaks with a posh British accent and finds everything dreadfully tedious. Heather (Carrie MacLemore) is enthusiastic and dim. They’re led by Violet (Greta Gerwig), who walks ahead of the pack, explaining life to the rest of them as though she’s reading from a book replete with a lot of big words. The trio picks up willowy transfer student Lily (Analeigh Lipton), and they’re off. The girls are mostly named after flowers. This can’t possibly mean anything, but it’s consistent with the overall milieu of a film that makes a mockery of human tragedy while simultaneously fully engaging in it. There’s a plot, sort of. The damsels run a suicide-prevention center on campus that reforms gloomy students with tap dancing. Is this a real life problem, coeds offing themselves in epidemic numbers? Add this to the growing list of things I don’t know. When the girls aren’t busy having no effect on the number of people hurling themselves off two-story buildings (an uncomfortable but not fatal act), they are worrying about boys. My favorite is Frank (Ryan Metcalf ), who is about as dumb as a person can be without being made to wear a helmet. Where did they find this actor? The Academy should have a special award for such special performances. Whit Stillman is a highly stylized director, in the tradition of Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson. Damsels in Distress is his first film since The Last Days of Disco (1998). In their use of weird jazz and intertitles, Stillman’s movies owe a small debt to

way privileged women can wield a handbag like an axe, and it’s fun to imagine how dated the film will look in 20 years. With more sophisticated audiences, movies are forced to adapt, and the fourth wall is crumbling, like, whoa. Much of the humor derives from the way it gleefully engages in movie logic shorthand. When the script needs to get rid of a jealous girlfriend, for example, it just has her abruptly turn around and walk in the other direction, never to return. The movie is filled with blunt movements like this, too satisfying to give away here. You’re either going to find these moments hilarious, or they will just look like lazy storytelling. Damsels in Distress is wildly uneven, at times confusing and, above all, so, so strange. These are stellar comedic performances, especially when you consider the task: They’re made to make insanely affected language sound like words a human would say. For me, Greta Gerwig as Violet is the main event. She slayed me in last year’s Greenberg, and ever since, I can’t stop gawking at her face. I don’t think I’m supposed to like her or her friends, but in fact, I cared about these girls a lot. I wanted them to be happy. Seriously, how does Gerwig manage to burrow into our hearts and minds clad in so many impossible ascots? Who are these people and why do I care? Damsels in Distress continues at the Wilma Theatre. arts@missoulanews.com

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

ADVICE GODDESS By Amy Alkon MUSED AND ABUSED After my girlfriend and I split up, I wrote a creative nonfiction piece about our breakup (changing some identifying details). I published it on a popular blog and linked to it on Facebook. We’re back together, and things are great; however, she saw the story and was humiliated. I explained that what I wrote was beautiful and vulnerable and true, and many people were moved by it. She really wasn’t down with that and told me to consider her off-limits in my writing. This seems unfair. I write nonfiction. What will I write about if I can’t write about my life? —Expressive As lame as some creative writing exercises sound—“Write a haiku about what you had for lunch!”—a thinly veiled portrait of your chicken salad will cause way less relationship stress than “Turn your fight with your girlfriend into a blog post!” (And no, you can’t just change her name from Molly to Holly so nobody but your 546 Facebook friends will know it’s her.) Yes, I’ve heard—privacy is reportedly dead. It was pronounced dead in 2006 at an internet security conference. This doesn’t mean that it is actually dead or should be— just that lots of people are finding their dirty laundry uploaded to Instagram and their private conversations turned into content. Chances are, those nonchalantly ripping away others’ privacy online would be spraining their tongues tsk-tsking if somebody did it the non-virtual way, like by hijacking the mic at an outdoor concert series: “My girlfriend, Molly...second row, that blonde in the red...FORGOT to tell me she was weaponsgrade slutty in college. She’d have a tat of that McDonald’s “x million served” sign, except that there’s no room on her disturbingly small breasts.” Like websites, relationships these days seem to require a privacy policy—one agreed upon in advance (before anybody becomes relationship-o-tainment) and maintained in the event of a breakup. Clearly, your preferred policy would be “By sharing your life with me, you agree to share it with anyone with an internet connection.” Sorry, but the more private person gets to set the standards, and sadly, this woman only wants to be your girlfriend, not your cure for writer’s block. Yeah, I know, you’d think it’d be any woman’s dream, sitting with you in some out-of-the-way Paris cafe as you chronicle her shortcomings on your netbook. But, wait—if you and your girlfriend have a fight and nobody comments on it on Face-

book, how do you know your lives are worth living? The answer is, decide which you want more, this girlfriend or an audience. This isn’t to say you have to stop writing about her; you just don’t get to hit “publish.” Try to see this as an opportunity to expand your writerly horizons. Go do things you can write about: Climb something. Fish for marlin. Drop in on the Spanish Civil War. And remember, everybody’s got a story, and lots of people are just dying to have theirs told. Seek them out, look deep into their eyes, and say, “So, tell me the horrors you experienced as a prisoner of war, and would you mind not leaving any participles dangling?”

MEEK HIM HALFWAY I’m a writer, and I went to a book party where there were many interesting writers, including a very cute, witty man. Problem is, I’m afraid to go talk to new people, especially cute, witty men, so I hung back and eventually left. Now I’m ruing yet another missed opportunity. —Regretsville You apparently learned your social skills from a park ranger. Playing dead is a successful strategy when you’re being chased by certain types of bears. When you’re hoping to be chased by a man, you need to go over and say hello. But, you whimper, you’re scared. Yeah, okay. But, why would that be reason to avoid doing it? By making yourself do something you’re afraid of, you shrink your fears and probably feel better afterward, unless it’s something like walking off the ledge of a tall building. Don’t worry if you aren’t a genius conversationalist. Just ask questions: “Are you a friend of the author’s?” “Is that soup on your shirt?” If somebody likes you, he’ll talk to you. If not, it’s a big world; go talk to somebody else. And don’t see every interaction as some statement about your worth. Some people will like you; some won’t. Unless you’re running for office, who cares? The more people you talk to, the bigger your life will be, and the less each interaction will matter in the grand scheme of you. Until then, remember, 90 percent of success is just showing up—and then not running back out to your car, powerlocking your doors, and speeding home

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny

BODY, MIND & SPIRIT Hypnosis & Imagery * Smoking * Weight * Negative self-talk

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “My soul is a fire that suffers if it doesn’t burn,” said Jean Prevost, a writer and hero of the French Resistance during World War II. “I need three or four cubic feet of new ideas every day, as a steamboat needs coal.” Your soul may not be quite as blazing as his, Aries, and you may normally be able to get along fine with just a few cubic inches of new ideas per day. But I expect that in the next three to four weeks, you will both need and yearn to generate Prevost-type levels of heat and light. Please make sure you’re getting a steady supply of the necessary fuel. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Here’s a great question to pose on a regular basis during the next three weeks: “What’s the best use of my time right now?” Whenever you ask, be sure to answer with an open mind. Don’t assume that the correct response is always, “working with white-hot intensity on churning out the masterpiece that will fulfill my dreams and cement my legacy.” On some occasions, the best use of your time may be doing the laundry or sitting quietly and doing nothing more than watching the world go by. Here’s a reminder from philosopher Jonathan Zap: “Meaning and purpose are not merely to be found in the glamorous, dramatic moments of life.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Sometimes I think and other times I am,” said French poet Paul Valery. Most of us could say the same thing. From what I can tell, Gemini, you are now entering an intensely “I am” phase of your long-term cycle—a time when it will be more important for you to exclaim “woohoo!” than to mutter “hmmm;” a time to tune in extra strong to the nonverbal wisdom of your body and to the sudden flashes of your intuition; a time when you’ll generate more good fortune by getting gleefully lost in the curious mystery of the moment than by sitting back and trying to figure out what it all means.

a

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t pretend you can’t see the darkness. Admit to its presence. Accept its reality. And then, dear Cancerian, walk nonchalantly away from it, refusing to fight it or be afraid of it. In other words, face up to the difficulty without becoming all tangled up in it. Gaze into the abyss so as to educate yourself about its nature, but don’t get stuck there or become entranced by its supposedly hypnotic power. I think you’ll be amazed at how much safety and security you can generate for yourself simply by being an objective, poised observer free of melodramatic reactions.

b

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s OK with me if you want to keep the lion as your symbolic animal, Leo. But I’d like to tell you why I’m proposing that you switch over to the tiger, at least for now. People who work with big cats say that lions tend to be obnoxious and grouchy, whereas tigers are more affable and easy to get along with. And I think that in the coming weeks it’ll be important for you to be like the tiger. During this time, you will have an enhanced power to cultivate friendships and influence people. Networking opportunities will be excellent. Your web of connections should expand. By the way, even though lions are called kings of the jungle, tigers are generally bigger, more muscular, and better fighters.

c

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1977, the first Apple computers were built in a garage that Steve Jobs’ father provided for his son and Steve Wozniak to work in. (You can see a photo of the holy shrine here:tinyurl.com/AppleGarage.) I suggest you think about setting up your own version of that magic place sometime soon: a basement, kitchen, garage, warehouse, or corner of your bedroom that will be the spot where you fine-tune your master plan for the coming years—and maybe even where you begin working in earnest on a labor of love that will change everything for the better.

d

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I have a head’s up for you, Libra. Do your best to avoid getting enmeshed in any sort of “he said/she said” controversy. (Of course it could be a “he said/he said” or “she said/she said” or “trans said/intersex said” brouhaha, too—you get the idea.) Gossip is not your friend in the week ahead. Trying to serve as a mediator is not your strong suit. Becoming embroiled in personal disputes is not your destiny. In my opinion, you should soar free of all the chatter and clatter. It’s time for you to seek out big pictures and vast perspectives. Where you belong is meditating on a mountaintop, flying in your dreams, and charging up your psychic batteries in a sanctuary that’s both soothing and thrilling.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In some Australian aborigine cultures, a newborn infant gets two names from the tribal elders. The first is the name everybody knows. The second is sacred, and is kept secret. Even the child isn’t told. Only when he or she comes of age and is initiated into adulthood is it revealed. I wish we had a tradition similar to this. It might be quite meaningful for you, because you’re currently navigating your way through a rite of passage that would make you eligible to receive your sacred, secret name. I suggest we begin a new custom: When you’ve completed your transformation, pick a new name for yourself, and use it only when you’re conversing with your ancestors, your teachers, or yourself.

f

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Please raise your hand if you have ever sought out a romantic connection with someone mostly because of the way he or she looked. You shouldn’t feel bad if you have; it’s pretty common. But I hope you won’t indulge in this behavior any time soon. In the coming weeks, it’s crucial for you to base your decisions on deeper understandings—not just in regards to potential partners and lovers, but for everything. As you evaluate your options, don’t allow physical appearance and superficial attractiveness to be the dominant factors.

g

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The 21st flight of the 4.5-billion-pound Space Shuttle Discovery was supposed to happen on June 8, 1995. But about a week before its scheduled departure, workers discovered an unforeseen problem. Northern Flicker Woodpeckers had made a mess of the insulation on the outer fuel tank; they’d pecked a couple of hundred holes, some quite deep. To allow for necessary repairs, launch was postponed for over a month. I’m choosing this scenario to serve as a useful metaphor for you, Capricorn. Regard it as your notice not to ignore a seemingly tiny adversary or trivial obstacle. Take that almost-insignificant pest seriously.

h

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s official: Dancing increases your intelligence. So says a report in the New England Journal of Medicine. Unfortunately, research found that swimming, bicycling, and playing golf are not at all effective in rewiring the brain’s neural pathways. Doing crossword puzzles is somewhat helpful, though, and so is reading books. But one of the single best things you can do to enhance your cognitive functioning is to move your body around in creative and coordinated rhythm with music. Lucky you: This is a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re likely to have more impulses and opportunities to dance. Take advantage! Get smarter. (More info: tinyurl.com/DanceSmart.)

i

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your animal totem for the next phase of your astrological cycle is a creature called a hero shrew. Of all the mammals in the world, it has the strongest and heaviest spine proportionate to its size. This exceptional attribute makes the tiny animal so robust that a person could stand on it without causing serious harm. You will need to have a backbone like that in the coming weeks, Pisces. Luckily, the universe will be conspiring to help you. I expect to see you stand up to the full weight of the pressures coming to bear on you—and do it with exceptional charisma.

MISSOULA COUNTY REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS for LEAD ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES SCHEMATIC DESIGN AND DESIGN DEVELOPMENT FOR PARTNERSHIP HEALTH CENTER Creamery Building MISSOULA COUNTY, MONTANA I. General Statement of Purpose Partnership Health Center, an entity of Missoula County (Owner), desires to acquire lead architectural services to assist in designing the remodel of one floor and the addition of a wing to the Partnership Health Center facility known as the Creamery Building located at 401 West Railroad Street in downtown Missoula, MT. The architect will work with the staff of Partnership Health Center and the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana to develop the designs. ii. Background: A. Partnership Health Center Partnership Health Center (PHC) has provided 20 years of uninterrupted healthcare services to the community as Missoula’s Federally Qualified Health Center and remains the region’s main provider of comprehensive primary care on a sliding fee scale. PHC provides medical, dental, mental health, pharmacy and a variety of other ancillary services to approximately 12,000 low-income, uninsured and under-insured residents in Missoula and surrounding rural areas. Due to the increasing demand for services and the need for additional space, an extensive planning process was initiated. The Creamery Building has been identified as the ideal location for an expansion. B. Partnership Health CenterCreamery Building Location Originally built sometime between 1912 and 1921, the Creamery Building is 2.5 times the size of the current Partnership Health Center facility and includes a vacant lot for future expansion. The facility remained a creamery through the early 1950’s. From then on a variety of businesses—from the manufacturing of golf apparel and equipment to retail sales of musical instruments—have operated out of the brick building. The upper floor of the building is currently in use; and Partnership Health Center operates a dental clinic, small medical clinic, and behavioral health services from this area. The basement of the building is currently under renovation and will house the Partnership Health Center Pharmacy and multiple offices. The building is located in an historic district, and preservation of the building exterior is desired. C. LEED Considerations In 2010, the Board of

County Commissioners adopted a Green Building Policy with the requirement to seek U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification for major renovations to County buildings. PHC plans to apply LEED criteria to the expansion and remodel of the Creamery Building and seek the highest LEED certification level that is cost effective and achievable given the limits of available funding. iii. Scope of Services: Working with the staff identified previously, this project will involve schematic design and design development. Schematic Design Phase: concept floor plans, site elements, outline narrative of construction materials, building code analysis and implementation, and update construction costs estimates; and Design Development Phase: refine/revise selected floor plans, refine/revise site plan, develop interior elevations, provide detailed narrative of construction materials, develop specific construction details, finalize implementation of code issues, specify select products and materials, develop security and access narrative, develop room finishes schedule and update construction cost estimates. iv.

The Deed of Trust encumbers real property (“Property”) located in Missoula County, Montana, more particularly described as follows: Lot 9 and 10 in Block 89 of South Missoula, a platted subdivision in Missoula County, Montana, according to the official recorded plat thereof. Beneficiary has declared the Grantor in default of the terms of the Deed of Trust and the promissory note (“Note”) secured by the Deed of Trust because of Grantor’s failure timely to pay all monthly installments of principal, interest and, if applicable, escrow reserves for taxes and/or insurance as required by the Note and Deed of Trust. According to the Beneficiary, the obligation evidenced by the Note (“Loan”) is now due for the 06/01/11 installment payment and all monthly installment payments due thereafter. As of March 20, 2012, the amount necessary to fully satisfy the Loan was $199,304.13. This amount includes the outstanding principal balance of $186,162.00, plus accrued interest, accrued late charges, accrued escrow installments for insurance and/or taxes (if any) and advances for the protection of beneficiary’s security interest (if any). Because of the defaults stated above, Beneficiary has elected to sell the Property to satisfy the Loan and has instructed Successor Trustee to commence sale proceedings. Successor Trustee will sell the Property at public auction on the front steps of the Missoula County Courthouse, 200 West Broadway, Missoula, MT 59802, City of Missoula on August 1, 2012 at 11:00 AM, Mountain Time.
