We’re at the base of Meow Mix, a freeride mountain bike trail that drops off a logging road above the west side of Marshall Creek. Donovan Power, an avid Missoula freerider, offered to take me out for a look at how extreme this side of the sport can be. Meow Mix was a legend in the Cover photo by Chad Harder local bike community 10 years ago. Adrenaline junkies came here for a wickedly challenging ride, one that tested brakes, reflexes and suspension. The U.S. Forest Service referred to it as a “hot spot” among freeriders in its 2009 annual report on the Rattlesnake National Wilderness and Recreation Area. The agency’s report also classified Meow Mix as a user created non-system trail. That’s the long way of saying “illegal.”.............................................................................................................14

Vote Laslovich Describe your first bike. Follow-up: Is Missoula bicycle-friendly?

Kevin Pfau: I had a used, blue, singlespeed Schwinn. My friend used to deliver the Seattle P-I newspaper on his unicycle, and he got me into delivering newspapers. I couldn’t throw the newspapers that well riding forwards, so I would put my ass on the handlebars and ride backwards so I could launch the papers farther. Baby onboard: Missoula is way too biker-friendly. Just last week, I saw a guy riding after dark with a baby on his back, with no lights on. I pulled over and tried to confront him, and he told me to mind my own business.

Ami Fey: My first bike was actually a trike. It was green with sparkly silver tinsels coming out of the handlebars. I have a twin sister and we loved wearing identical outfits and cruising the streets of Cascade, Montana, on our trikes. Free wheelin’: I totally think Montana is bike-friendly.

Bob Hayselden: It was an old Schwinn that my dad got me back in 1950, when I was 4 years old, in Oakland. The way I learned how to ride, it was very oldschool. My dad would sit me on the bike, which was way too big for me, and then shove me down the road. Multi-tasking: I think they’re pretty safe as long as you keep your eye out for them. It’s the cars that are dangerous.

Katie Christofferson: I got a lavender Huffy when I was three. It was totally tricked out with all the accessories you could imagine. It had a bell, pink tassels, spoke clips, training wheels and a bunch of other cool stuff. My parents totally pimped my ride. Entitled brats: I think that Missoula, in general, is bicycle-friendly, but a lot of these bikers have a sense of entitlement when it comes to our roads. Scott Manzar: Back in 1959, my parents gave me a plain-Jane red Schwinn. I lived on a cattle ranch about 20 miles from the nearest town, so I couldn’t really ride it there. Sore knuckles: All these damn bikers in town are morons. Just last week, I had some guy in his mid-20s pull out right in front of me when I had a green light. I honked my horn, and the guy flicked me off like I did something wrong. If I were 10 years younger, I would have beat the shit out of that punk.

Jesse Laslovich is the leader we need to be our next attorney general. I am proud to be endorsing Jesse because he has the experience and drive that we need from our chief law enforcement official. He is no rookie to this work, with years of experience already under his belt protecting children from sexual predators and cracking down on DUIs. In the state auditor’s office, he has already returned millions of dollars to scammed Montanans. Jesse is the candidate who will look out for us. Jesse is also the only candidate that brings years of legislative service to this office. As a member of the legislature, I know it takes persistence and skill to ensure important reforms make it through the process. I’m voting for Jesse Laslovich because he has the experience, values and dedication that we need in an attorney general, and I hope you will join me. Rep. Bryce Bennett Missoula

Send Ellie back to Helena As the former executive director of Blue Mountain Clinic in Missoula and someone who routinely testified in front of the infamous House Judiciary committee during the “War on Women” this last legislative session, I am writing in fervent support of the re-election of Rep. Ellie Hill in House District 94. As an attorney with a sharp mind and often much-needed quick wit, Hill was a champion in the House of Representatives and she proved herself an absolutely critical voice in assisting the overall effort to stop antichoice legislation. I have worked with Hill for years to mobilize activists, engage young people and work on policy solutions year-round, locally and nationally. For Hill’s longtime dedication to progressive causes and due to her stellar work in the last legislative session, it must be noted that organizations from around the state have endorsed her over her once-again opponent and former mayoral candidate, Lou Ann Crowley. Organizations that rely on champions to fight for them in the legislature—like NARAL-Pro Choice Montana, Montana Conservation Voters, United Transportation Workers and MEA/MFT (our teachers and public employees

union representing 19,000 Montanans)— have rallied behind the re-election of Hill. As a veteran on choice issues in this state, Hill has never stopped fighting for what’s right for Montana women and families. It’s critical we send her back, and I encourage voters to support her in the June 5th primary. Anita Vatshell Missoula

We are all entitled to our feelings,

beliefs and values. We deserve the opportunity to make our own choices that are in our best interest. CI-108 is an assault on personal freedom and choice. I do not subscribe to the strategy to have religious views dictate policy in the form of law to take away my rights nor those of any other woman in this state. There are more important issues to focus on than meddling in the private affairs of individuals. Montanans, don’t take measures to change our state constitution lightly. Decline to sign CI-108!

Vote for me, Brad Johnson Serving four years as Montana secretary of state was the greatest honor of my life. In that first term in office, I was successful in securing passage of legislation that prohibits electronic voting machines and requires that paper ballots be used in all Montana elections. I also led Montana to become one of the first states in the country to fully comply with the 2002 Help America Vote Act. I will build upon these achievements in my second term. I offer a four-point plan to strengthen the safeguards of our elections: (1) require voters to show government-issued photo identification at the polls when they vote; (2) eliminate election-day voter registration; (3) modernize and expedite the signature verification process for mail-in ballots; (4) create authority for the secretary of state, in concert with the attorney general, to investigate and prosecute election law violations. We don’t have a rampant voter fraud problem in Montana, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make every reasonable effort to ensure the continued integrity of the process. My home has never been burglarized, but I still lock the door when I leave the house. While cases of voter fraud are sprouting up across the country, the current secretary has failed to implement any of these basic precautions to deter voter fraud. It’s time to take this issue more seriously. I ask you for your vote on June 5 and look forward to the privilege of serving four more years as your secretary of state. Brad Johnson East Helena

Marijuana Masterson finds greener grass John Masterson, the founder of Montana NORML, is leaving Missoula for Seattle, marking the end of 14 years of marijuana advocacy in Montana. In February, Masterson sold Modwest, the web-hosting company he co-founded in 2000, to Blackfoot Communications. Now he’s heading to Seattle to launch a new tech startup. Last week, Masterson called in from Seattle and reflected on the Montana marijuana movement’s breakthroughs and setbacks. Referring to the federal raids of Montana medical marijuana businesses and the 2011 legislature’s strict reform of the state’s medical marijuana law, Masterson says, “Our community is fractured, terrorized, beat down, afraid—and with good reason. But despite all of that, there are people who are stepping up, standing up and getting involved with the CI-110 campaign.” Constitutional Initiative 110 is an effort to amend the state constitution to establish that “adults have the right to responsibly purchase, consume, produce and possess marijuana, subject to reasonable limitations, regulations and taxation.” Montana

First, the group behind it, has until June 22 to submit the 48,674 valid signatures it needs to get CI-110 on the November ballot. Masterson calls the initiative “the cherry on top for me, after 14 years of advocacy.” He says he plans to continue working on the campaign from afar, as its treasurer. Whether or not CI-110 is successful, Masterson says he believes the work he’s done to “keep the ground fertile for reform” has paid off. “I’m proud of that, and good things are happening.” He points to a national poll conducted by Rasmussen a few weeks ago suggesting that 56 percent of Americans favor legalizing and regulating marijuana, similar to the way alcohol and tobacco are regulated. “That was a ray of sunshine in the middle of a difficult time,” he says. He’ll find the ground somewhat more fertile in Washington. Late last year, Gov. Chris Gregoire asked the federal government to reclassify marijuana as a drug that can be prescribed by doctors and filled by pharmacists. And a marijuana tax-and-regulate bill is already on the November 2012 ballot there. Matthew Frank

The mail

One stamp, one vote After Sen. Max Baucus brought the Postmaster General to Ingomar, Mont., in April, there was a rural sigh of relief. At least for now, tiny post offices across the state would be spared proposed closures aiming to balance the Postal Service’s billions of dollars of debt. But a recent announcement has the senator up in arms again—Kalispell’s mail sorting center is slated to close this summer. That could be troublesome in an election year. Mail-in voting in Montana is on the rise. According to the Montana secretary of state’s office, 47 percent of the vote in the 2010 general election was by mail, compared to 15 percent in 2000. And the state just mailed out a record number of absentee ballots for the June 5 primary election. If Baucus gets his way, Kalispell’s facility can’t close until after Nov. 13. He won an amendment in the Senate’s recently passed Postal Reform Bill that bars the closing of any mail facility prior to that date in states where residents can vote by mail. But it hasn’t passed the House.

The Postmaster General went ahead with a plan to close and consolidate up to 140 facilities over the summer, including Kalispell’s. Baucus was not pleased. “Closing the mail processing center in Kalispell will slow mail delivery all across northwest Montana and the delivery process would still be in a state of transition come November,” Baucus said in an emailed statement. His office says that if the bill isn’t passed, sorting facilities in Butte, Helena and Wolf Point would likely be discussed for closure next year, as the Postal Service is looking at a $14 billion loss in 2012. Instead of closing facilities, the bill would save money by altering mandated pre-funding of retiree benefits, recouping excess payments to the Federal Employee Retirement System and dropping Saturday deliveries. Montana Secretary of State Linda McCulloch wrote in a January letter to the Postmaster General that she expects more absentee votes in this election than any before. She warned that if the snail mail gets any slower, it could “unintentionally discourage Montanans from voting.” Brooks Johnson

The ecosystem, one of FWS’s six grizzly bear recovery areas, is valuable. “The Forest Service considers it to have the highest ecological integrity of the interior Columbia Basin,” says Erik Beever, a research ecologist with the USGS. “It’s an important stepping stone for connectivity of broad-ranging species, not just grizzly bears.” To the west is the sparsely populated and most-

ly roadless panhandle. To the east there’s Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and the rest of the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem, where Kendall undertook a similar DNA survey, completed in 2008. Her research found about 760 grizzlies living there, more than twice what the FWS had estimated. FWS’s current rough estimate is that there are only about 40 grizzlies in the Cabinet-Yaak. The numbers there have been lower, Kendall says, due to proximity to humans. “Bears here are always closer to the attractants humans tempt them with,” she says, often leading to deadly confrontations on roads, train tracks and trails. She says the biggest boost to the population will come from better cohabitation. But she won’t know the population they’re starting from until her team combs through some hair. Brooks Johnson

Family tree on a tree Stretching from Thompson Falls to British Columbia, the Cabinet-Yaak ecosystem sprawls 2,600 square miles, straddling the Idaho panhandle. That’s where the U.S. Geological Survey is now hunting for grizzly bear DNA, in order to better understand the population and genetics of area grizzlies. The best non-invasive way to get the endangered bears’ DNA is through their hair, naturally rubbed off on trees or caught in lured barbs. It’s the USGS, not the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, conducting the research because, “We’re in the business of good science without a stake in the outcome besides good, reliable data,” says Kate Kendall, lead investigator of the project. Kendall was training her 70 staffers in water crossing last Sunday, May 27, in preparation for the summer’s work: hiking to over 1,800 locations five times each. They’ll check meticulously placed hair traps (scented barbed wire corrals) and rub objects (small barbs at naturally occurring rubbing spots on trees and poles). They’ll analyze the captured hair over the next couple of years to obtain population numbers and a detailed family tree.

Dogs The death sentence Over the Memorial Day weekend, Rocky might’ve had his last romp through the woods. The young German shepherd ran around the Tin Cup area west of Darby with his owner, Greg Bergren, and

Bergren’s daughter and a couple of her friends. Rocky also played ball in the yard. And, as Rocky always does, he trailed everyone in the family— Bergren has four kids—around the house. “You can’t even go in the bathroom without him following you in there,” Bergren says. “He’s a family member. That’s the tough thing about this.” Darby City Court Judge Chee Burnsides recently ordered Rocky to be euthanized after the dog allegedly bit two people, including a 14year-old boy, in March and April, bites that Bergren isn’t certain Rocky is guilty of. But Bergren pled guilty anyway, thinking a death sentence wasn’t a possibility. He wishes the judge had offered an option that would spare Rocky’s life, he says, even if it meant Bergren couldn’t keep him. Bergren, who owns the People’s Market grocery in Darby, has had Rocky, who’s about 19 months old, since the dog was a pup. He’s with Bergren “24-7,” often in a kennel behind the People’s Market. Bergren says Rocky’s never aggressive toward the salesmen and vendors who come and go all day. That’s why Bergren was surprised when the Darby police accused Rocky of biting a boy in the boy’s yard. Bergren says he was skiing that day in March when Rocky apparently escaped his chain-link kennel at home. Bergren was cited for having a vicious dog. He was cited again last month after an officer claimed Rocky had bitten another person, though Bergren insists that at the time of the incident, Rocky was home with Bergren’s sons. The Darby police officer involved wasn’t available for comment. Judge Burnsides didn’t return calls seeking comment. Bergren delayed Rocky’s euthanization until Burnsides’s imposed deadline, May 23. That day, Bergren says he and the entire family drove Rocky to the Bitter Root Humane Association, in Hamilton, but it was closed. By missing the deadline, Bergren is risking arrest. He was planning to have Rocky euthanized by a vet on the afternoon of Wed., May 30, after the Indy went to print. BRHA Development Director Vicki Dawson is suprised by Burnsides’s ruling. “I’ve been here eight years, going on nine now, and it’s extremely uncommon,” she says, adding that euthanizing a dog is in some cases necessary, but that “a deep consideration needs to be made whether or not the animal is truly endangering the community.” Matthew Frank

etc. During this primary election season, Carol Williams, the matriarch of Missoula Democrats, finds herself on the sidelines—literally. She’s been watching baseball. Williams termed-out after eight years in the Montana Senate, where she was the first female Senate majority leader, and instead of being in the thick of the action ahead of Tuesday’s primary vote, she’s been in the Bay Area watching the Giants and Yankees play ball. “It feels really good,” she says, though she admits to some nostalgia. “I’ve enjoyed being in the legislature and I’ve worked hard, and so now, not having to do that, there is a little bit of a vacuum.” Of course, Williams still has her eye on this year’s Democratic primary, which is especially competitive: most Missoula Republican candidates are running unopposed, while many Democrats face stiff competition ahead of the general election. The race Williams is watching most closely is the one for her Senate seat, in District 46, where Sue Malek, currently representing House District 98, is battling Tyler Gernant, an attorney who two years ago ran for U.S. Congress. Williams says both are running “really good campaigns and are very visible, at least in the Rattlesnake area, where most of the votes are. … They’re doing the doors, they’re raising money, they’ve got lots of good signs up.” She says both are well-qualified and deserving. As in Missoula’s other competitive races, it’s a good problem to have, she says—“and a really good sign for Democrats.” Williams is also eyeing Jenifer Gursky’s race in HD 98 against David Crowley, because Gursky “had such a good term as president” of the Associated Students of the University of Montana. But perhaps the most interesting race is in House District 94, where Lou Ann Crowley is challenging oneterm incumbent Ellie Hill. These two met two years ago, with Hill winning by only 98 votes. Williams expects it to be close again, in part because some of Hill’s colleagues in the legislature are backing Crowley, including Sen. Dave Wanzenried, and Rep. Betsy Hands, who’s not running for reelection. “Generally, if you’re a member of a delegation, people sort of coalesce and support their colleague,” Williams says. “I think it’s a little different this time. … That’s unusual, I have to say.”

Crickets in the pasture Montana’s odd silence on bison as national mammal by Alex Sakariassen

the National Bison Legacy Act passed. The National Bison Association, along with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the InterTribal Buffalo Council, announced a “Vote Bison!” campaign on the heels of Enzi’s introduction. If Enzi’s bill passes, those groups intend to push for a National Bison Day on the first Thursday of every November. “The buffalo was once the center of life for the Native peoples, and today, as we work to restore that relationship, we would like to pause and honor the buffalo as the national mammal,” Jim Stone, executive director of the InterTribal Bison Cooperative, said in a statement May 25. For Carter, the initiative is about more than simply acknowledging the iconic nature of the continent’s largest land mammal. The bill gives the National Bison Association a platform from which to highlight the part that private bison ranchers have played alongside conservation groups and tribal interests—and, by extension, what the American consumer can do. Photo by Alex Sakariassen “They’re a partner in this,” Carter says. “The more they buy Wild bison at the Fort Peck Indian Reservation bison meat and the more we see the demand increase for bison The National Bison Legacy Act—if meat, the more incentive there is for Montana has seen a number of highprofile developments around bison in passed—wouldn’t have any direct impact ranchers to bring these animals back on the last few months.

Montana, oddly, wasn’t one of those states.

The push could benefit bison by making it easier to develop a brucellosis vaccine.

O, lucky cows In Stevensville, some live to see old age by Molly Laich

Nobody knows exactly how Molly B the angus beef cow managed to escape from a Great Falls slaughter line back in 2006, but that’s what happened. She leaped over partitions, dodged cars and trains and swam across the Missouri River in pursuit of freedom. It took wranglers more than six hours to catch her. By then, she’d become a celebrity. Sending her to the slaughterhouse was out of the question; just imagine the big-agro villain who would try, depicted with a drooling mouth and dollar signs for eyes.

time intended for dinner, making it the only sanctuary of its kind in Montana. As a farm, it makes not a lot of sense. They don’t grow anything. The chickens' eggs aren’t scrambled and the cows aren’t milked. To keep a viable dairy cow, the mother needs to be kept pregnant continuously, and then what would become of the calves? Essentially, the New Dawn animals, including five cows, eight pigs, five sheep, eight goats and many birds, are pets. There are, for example, Boris and Oliver, two very large pigs who could kill

sell, so they rent it out and run the farm with that, along with retirement money and Lee’s Social Security payments. They get a few donations and sometimes some student volunteers, but mostly Sue and Lee run the place out of their pockets, with their sweat. And their idealism. There are about 50 animals at New Dawn. There are about 45 billion that are killed for food in the U.S. each year. Saving little Buddhas from slaughter isn’t about making much of a dent in the number of lives lost. The point is to

At New Dawn, pigs have wings.

Molly B was sent instead to the Montana Large Animal Sanctuary, in Hot Springs, to live with 1,200 other animals. It proved to be an unmanageable number; the animals were starving and neglected. The sanctuary went under in 2011. So Molly B and Big Mike—a steer she befriended in Hot Springs, from whom she could not be separated—were sent to yet another new home, this time the nonprofit New Dawn Farm Sanctuary, which comprises about 20 acres atop a very steep hill in Stevensville and is a home of last resort for its animals. New Dawn was founded in 2007 by Sue and Lee Eakins, a retired couple in their 60s. Sue has short brown hair and a distinctive voice she uses to coo at the animals. Before opening the sanctuary, she spent 30 years as a social worker. Lee wears a trim beard and glasses. He has a hangar full of tools, farm equipment and a little rickety airplane built with mail-order parts—“but most of his life is to make me happy,” Sue says. New Dawn specializes in “food farmed” animals, meaning its residents were at one

you if they wanted, although after just a few moments, it’s clear that such an idea has never occurred to them. And the sheep— “little Buddhas,” Sue says—which calmly swarm anyone who enters their space. Among them is the black-faced Confetti, who gets around on just three hooves owing to a birth defect. His original owners took pity on him. Most of the animals found their way to New Dawn similarly, not by pulling off the perfect crime, like Molly B, but almost accidentally. The other livestock are joined by three dogs, a grumpy pot-bellied pig and two aloof llamas. Fans of interspecies friendships could be overwhelmed here, where pigs lie down with goats and sometimes try to herd cows. Only the roosters and geese are penned, for their safety. There seem to be just the right number of animals. “I’m not trying to win animal hoarder of the year,” Sue says. But how can this work? Sue and Lee said they’d intended to fund the farm with money they got for their South Hills house, but it refuses to

create a place for people to visit the animals, fall in love and stop eating them. In addition to the sanctuary, Sue also runs the website othernationsjustice.org, which mobilizes animal activists in Montana. Last month, the group protested the Shrine Club Circus on the UM campus for the way it uses animals. Its fans also meet for vegetarian potlucks at Missoula’s Unitarian church. The group takes its name from the American naturalist Henry Beston, who wrote of animals nearly 100 years ago, “They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time.” Comprehending 45 billion little souls might be impossible for anyone. It’s much easier to shine a light on one, like Molly B, and say, “This one is special. She must have been so clever to fall out of line.” New Dawn wants to gently correct this assumption. In fact, out in her sanctuary field, she’s hard to differentiate from the other mostly black cows.

Damned if you do Med pot court case could sway election This week, the Montana Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Montana’s medical marijuana law. The state, represented by Attorney General Steve Bullock, argued that District Judge James Reynolds improperly halted sections of the law passed by the 2011 legislature. Trial lawyer Jim Goetz, of Bozeman, argued that the new law is rife with unconstitutional provisions and should be dumped in its entirety. The outcome could affect thousands of Montanans who still rely on marijuana as medicine. It could also influence the November elections. In 2004, Montanans passed an initiative, I-148, by a whopping 62 percent— more votes than any politician or other ballot measure could claim. The law provided that, with a doctor’s prescription, those who wished to use medical marijuana could get a state medical marijuana card allowing them to obtain their medicine from registered caregivers or to grow it themselves. Slowly but surely, the list of cardholders grew into the thousands and the medical marijuana industry expanded. Then, due in part to efforts to make obtaining a state card easier, medical marijuana caravans, video visits with doctors to get prescriptions and, perhaps, an acceptance by the public that medical marijuana was indeed legal in Montana and wouldn’t get one tossed in jail, the number of cardholders ballooned, eventually topping out at more than 30,000 in 2010. The fly in the ointment was the fact that marijuana remains a Schedule I drug under federal law, which prohibits both its use and production. However, a memorandum issued by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder seemed to assure patients and providers in states that legalized marijuana for medical use that the federal government would defer to state laws. Sometime in 2010, that changed. The federal government began what it claims was an 18-month investigation into Montana’s medical marijuana

industry, targeting those who grew and distributed it. At about the same time, and prior to the 2011 legislature, opponents to any use of marijuana began efforts to overturn the initiative, finding champions to carry their repeal in folks such as Mike Milburn, a Republican representative

The peril for Bullock is what 30,000 former patients and nearly 27,000 signers on the initiative will do this fall. from Cascade, and Jeff Essmann, a Republican senator from Billings. As Speaker of the House in a chamber dominated by a two-thirds Republican majority, Milburn passed a repeal through the legislature, only to have it vetoed by Gov. Brian Schweitzer. That brings us to the law at hand, which passed the legislature as SB 423. The bill was thrown together in the closing weeks of the session in response to Schweitzer’s veto. Besides being a thinly veiled attempt at repeal, it’s sausagemaking at its worst. For example, District Judge Reynolds blocked the law’s provision of warrantless searches, its ban on advertising and the prohibition that those growing medical marijuana may receive remuneration from patients. But that ruling fell far short of what’s necessary, argues Goetz on behalf of the Montana Cannabis Industry Association. “The preliminary injunction,” Goetz wrote in a brief, “did not go far enough—

the entire act should have been enjoined because its constitutionally-offensive features are so intertwined with the rest of the act that the excision amounted to an improper rewrite of the statute.” The law infringes on constitutional rights, he argues, “to pursue good health, happiness, privacy, dignity and a lawful occupation.” In a brief for the state, Bullock—who is also running for governor—contends that the court “has already determined that the right to pursue employment is limited to lawful activities. Commercially selling marijuana … is illegal under Montana law as well as federal law. Similarly, there is no right to pursue health free of government regulations. And while the right to privacy encompasses the right to make medical decisions, that right must be balanced against the state’s police power, especially where no fundamental right is at stake.” In addition to these arguments and their outcome, waiting in the wings is I124, the initiative allowing voters to repeal SB 423. Medical marijuana supporters put it on the ballot by garnering 26,778 signatures from 49 of the state’s 100 legislative districts. If the court strikes down SB 423, that initiative will be moot and the law will revert to its 2004 version; if the court rules otherwise, voters again will have a chance to tell lawmakers what they want when it comes to medical marijuana. The peril for Bullock is what 30,000 former patients and nearly 27,000 signers on the initiative will do this fall. If they think he’s fought against their interests, even if it was his duty as attorney general to defend the law, they might not give him their votes. He could win in court and lose in November.

Fishing for recovery Anglers can be advocates for endangered species by Ben Long

The prism of clear river water can distort and magnify the size of a fish, an effect amplified by adrenaline and nostalgia. Still, I remember one fish big enough to shake my whole view of the world. I was of that tender age when one believes one’s father to be capable of anything—except failure. Dad and I were camping along a headwater tributary of Idaho’s Clearwater River. The trout rose from the shadows of the glassy waters, beyond the reach of my childlike casts. It dashed after my dad’s spinner but never struck. My mind’s eye sees that fish flashing bright and infuriating, easily eluding us, until the rich evening light fades into darkness. That fish made my old man mortal in my eyes. It was also my introduction to the bull trout, apex predator of the Columbia River Basin. Bull trout were formerly called Dolly Varden, which seems like a sissy name for such a muscular fish. They are technically a char, with light yellow dots against a greenish back and a fiery orange underbelly. They’re the shape of a salmon, and lakerun fish can top 30 pounds. Stories abound of pioneers using pitchforks to collect them from spawning streams to chop into fertilizer, but over the years, the fish population plummeted due to habitat degradation, dams, overharvest and competition with exotic species. Today, I live in the bull trout’s stronghold, the Kootenai and Flathead drainages of western Montana. I’ve watched as the legendary run of bull trout from Flathead Lake crashed. Another run at Swan Lake is drifting into trouble. I’ve also seen the species go from obscurity to headlines when it was listed under the Endangered Species Act. Still, in those Montana waters where the species is holding its own, one may catch—and even keep and eat—bull trout. That’s not just a good thing for anglers; it also reveals the inherent flexibility of the Endangered Species Act. It surprises many that fishermen are

still allowed to pursue bull trout under the act, that notorious “atomic sledgehammer” of a law, as the ESA’s critics have dubbed it. Bull trout were once vilified as a “cannibal fish” that gobbled up more desirable

Stories abound of pioneers using pitchforks to collect bull trout from spawning streams to chop into fertilizer, but over the years, the fish population plummeted. species. Similarly, some politically motivated people vilify the Endangered Species Act as a destructive law, going far beyond objective need or reality. Thanks to that law, which was celebrated May 18 as “National Endangered Species Day,” we as a people recognize that all life deserves respect and that we are all part of the intricate web of life. Regulated sport fishing rarely contributes to the demise of a fish species, but it has contributed to the rescue of some. Bull trout, like too many native trout, char and salmon species of the Columbia Basin, face a variety of threats, including dams, competitive exotic species and anything that degrades clear, cold spawning streams. All of these have far more damaging and permanent impacts on the survival of endangered fish than does well-regulated sport fishing. And that means that, in turn,

fishermen can be a fish’s most powerful political allies, especially when they’re working together with groups such as Trout Unlimited. The Endangered Species Act does protect the habitat of endangered species, mostly on federal land, and in general, it usually bars the “take” or killing of members of a troubled species. But there are important exceptions. Even where bull trout are listed as a threatened species, they can still be fair game for well-managed sport fishing under the Endangered Species Act. The fact is, a fish species can be faring poorly overall but still have enough of a surplus in a local population to support a moderate harvest. Between 2004 and 2010, Montana’s Koocanusa Reservoir and Hungry Horse Reservoir of the South Fork of the Flathead River offered about 43,000 days of fishing and produced more than 2,500 healthy, locally produced bull trout meals. Likewise, Lake Billie Chinook, north of Bend, Ore., has a growing reputation as a bull trout fishery. Within proper limits, sport fishing in such habitats has a negligible impact on the population. On the plus side, it introduces thousands of people to the fish and gives them reason to become invested in conservation. With good luck and hard work, fishing opportunities will expand as the species recovers. My own son likes fishing the kiddie ponds these days, delighted with a 10-inch rainbow trout fresh from the hatchery. Someday, I’d like to take him to some remote mountain river and show him a bull trout that’s big enough and smart enough to make a fool of his old man.

Since it’s 2012, you probably don’t read literary journals. It certainly seems like more of a 1912, salon-kind of activity anyway (reading, that is). Unless of course you’re an up-and-coming writer looking to not get self-published. Then you scour journals and look for contest deadlines.

CURSES, FOILED AGAIN - A witness told police responding to a report of shots fired in North Charleston, S.C., that a man with a gun had gone into a house, but when officers questioned the occupant, she insisted no one else was there but her children. The officers asked the children if that was true, and they said no, that two men were in a back room watching television. Officers found Nathaniel Whack and Pierre Pete, as well as partially smoked joints, three loaded handguns, two semi-automatic weapons and a revolver. According to the police report, during a strip search, a spent .38 shell casing fell out of Whack’s anus and was logged into evidence. (Charleston’s WCIV-TV)

Police arrested Keithan Manuel, 18, in Wilmer, Texas, for trying to rob an officer inside the police station. Police Chief Victor Kemp said Manuel pointed a towel-covered hand at the dispatch officer and demanded, “Give me all your money.” He then asked if there were any warrants against him and added, “You do know I have a gun?” After the dispatcher summoned officers, who found no weapon, Manuel insisted he’d been joking. “Man, I play like that all the time,” he said. “I didn’t think she would take it seriously.” Kemp commented, “You hear of those World’s Dumbest Criminals every once in a while, but you never think it’s going to happen in your city.” (Dallas-Fort Worth’s KTVT-TV) PAYING THE PRICE - New coins issued by Britain’s Royal Mint contain metal that could prove harmful, according to dermatologists. The five-pence and 10-pence coins contain nickel, which a European directive has banned in items such as belts and earrings because it could corrode and irritate the skin. Her Majesty’s Treasury defended the nickel-plated coins, explaining they’ll save about 8 million pounds ($12.6 million) a year and that, except for Sweden, other European nations still use nickel in coins. Writing in the British Medical Journal, experts from St. John’s Institute of Dermatology and the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, warned of “the potential costs to health from skin diseases related to nickel exposure—allergic contact dermatitis and hand dermatitis.” (Britain’s The Scotsman) DOUBLE-DUTY LIFESAVER - When a 57-year-old man got into an argument with an acquaintance at a San Diego shopping mall, police said the acquaintance pulled a knife and stabbed him in the chest. The victim’s implanted heart defibrillator blocked the blade, sparing the man’s life. (Associated Press) KILLING TIME - During a nine-hour layover in Nashville, Tenn., Greyhound bus passenger William Todd, 24, committed at least 11 felonies, according to police. He started by breaking into a business, stealing weapons and then shooting up the business and setting it on fire. Next, he robbed four people leaving a local bar, tased one and pistol-whipped another. Five minutes later, he carjacked a taxi at gunpoint and used stolen credit cards to buy food and $199 worth of items at a WalMart. At 6 a.m., he entered a hotel, broke into a law office there, ransacked it and defecated on a desk, smearing feces on some framed law degrees. Then he knocked on several hotel room doors, pretending to be a female housekeeper, and robbed one couple of $600, crying the whole time. He shaved his head, returned to the stolen cab but crashed it into a parking garage. He hailed another cab and ordered the driver at knifepoint to take him to Opryland. At noon, police found Todd hiding in a water-cooling vat on top of Opryland, submerged up to his nose. (Nashville’s WSMV-TV) CURSE IN DISGUISE - When a medical condition forced Kim Thompson to leave her job on a disability pension, the New Jersey resident was able to get her $91,000 federal student loans canceled. The debt was reported to the Internal Revenue Service as taxable Cancellation of Debt Income, resulting in her owing $26,000 to the IRS and $5,000 to the state of New Jersey. (ABC News) DATA-RECOVERY HEROES - Britain’s Trish Vickers, who lost her eyesight seven years ago, had written 26 pages of a novel, using rubber bands to guide her ballpoint pen, when she asked her son to read them. The pages were blank because the pen had run out of ink. They called police in Dorset, and a forensic team shined a crime light on the indentations on the paper to read what Vickers had written. “Fortunately,” police official Kerry Savage said, “apart from one line, we managed to retrieve the whole lot.” (BBC News) SILENCE, PLEASE - The longest anyone can tolerate the world’s quietest place is 45 minutes, according to Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis, Minn. Its anechoic chamber is 99.99 percent sound absorbent, thanks to 3.3-foot-thick fiberglass acoustic wedges, double walls of insulated glass and foot-thick concrete. “It’s used for formal product testing, for research into the sound of different thing: heart valves, the sound of the display of a cell phone, the sound of a switch on a car dashboard,” said company founder and president Steven Orfield, who can last 30 minutes in the chamber. “The quieter the room, the more things you’ll hear. You’ll hear your heart beating, sometimes you can hear your lungs, hear your stomach gurgling loudly. In the anechoic chamber, you become the sound.” (Britain’s Daily Mail) A woman who became concerned after hearing moaning and yelling coming from a neighbor’s apartment in Victoria, British Columbia, around 5 a.m. called police, who had to knock several times before the man responded. “When questioned about the amount of noise he was making,” Deputy Chief John Ducker wrote in the police operations log, “the man explained that he had been essentially (in his own, different words) on the toilet having his morning constitutional, but he was done now.” The man promised to be quieter in the future. (Victoria’s Times Colonist) STOCKPILE FOLLIES - After storing $68,250 worth of unused polo-style shirts since October 2010, the District of Columbia fire department finally issued a new uniform policy that would allow firefighters to wear the 1,750 shirts, which are designed not to melt to the body and contribute to burn injuries. Less than 30 minutes after the policy was announced, however, officials rescinded it, leaving the shirts in storage.

onovan Power breaks through a tangle of brush just off Marshall Canyon Road, ascending a steep, narrow dirt track. He occasionally steps over a downed log, the once-clean cut from a chainsaw worn from years of rain and snow. Forest growth presses in around us. I nearly trip over an exposed root and quietly thank myself for throwing on a pair of boots with good tread. Then a branch slaps my face as I struggle to gain my footing. This certainly wouldn’t be my first choice for a mountain bike trail. After several more yards of steep grade, the forest gives way to clear-cut. The trail is much easier to spot here—a skinny track of exposed soil cutting down the mountain at a pitch that, were I riding down instead of climbing up, would probably turn my hair prematurely white. For speed demons, the appeal is obvious. “Huh, looks like it’s open,” Power says. “Someone’s been riding it. Or at least hiking.” We’re at the base of Meow Mix, a freeride mountain bike trail that drops off a logging road above the west side of Marshall Creek. Power, an avid Missoula freerider, offered to take me out for a look at how extreme this side of the sport can be. Meow Mix was a legend in the local bike community 10 years ago. Adrenaline junkies came here for a wickedly challenging ride, one that tested brakes, reflexes and suspension. The U.S. Forest Service referred to it as a “hot spot” among freeriders in its 2009 annual report on the Rattlesnake National Wilderness and Recreation Area. The agency’s report also classified Meow Mix as a user created non-system trail. That’s the long way of saying “illegal.” Freeride mountain biking has become an increasingly popular sport in the Missoula area over the past decade or so. Advancements in suspension technology have allowed for bikes specifically tailored to more “technical” terrain: steep slopes, jumps, rock drops and log ramps. But Missoula’s legal trail system doesn’t have much of that. The void is filled by an outlaw culture of freeriders bent on meeting their own demands, even if it means breaking the law. It’s not like they haven’t tried to go the legal route before. Years ago, the nonprofit Mountain Bike Missoula pushed for a highly technical trail on Blue Mountain. To hear some tell it, they almost got there … before the discussion fell apart. The Lolo National Forest closed Meow Mix in 2005, downing trees over the trail and declaring it off-limits. Then they closed it again in 2008—three times. Freeriders just kept reopening it. Finally, on the fourth go-round, forest officials brought in trail crews to mulch and seed Meow Mix. The agency’s concerns over it, as with any illegal trail, varied from public safety and potential user conflict to erosion. The 2009 report encouraged rangers to continue monitoring the area on a regular basis. After a slow, scenic ride up Road 55, Power stops at the top of Meow Mix. The hill drops sharply off the road. It’s choked with pine. But there’s

D

nothing here to indicate any trail. Just a bunch of downed trees—big ones—piled on top of one another. “You can’t tell me that’s better for the forest than a singletrack,” Power says. “It’s not like we’re motorized.”

Mouse, meet cat Rusty Wilder has heard this tune before. As infrastructure and operations officer for the Lolo National Forest, he’s well aware that there are scores of user groups out there vying for their share of public land. The tricky part for the Forest Service, he says, is making sure those uses don’t conflict with one another. “If you concentrate use, you can have uses that aren’t necessarily compatible,” Wilder explains. “If I were riding a horse, I might not feel that horseback riding and mountain biking were compatible in the

in weeds or wildlife or fish,” Wilder says, “so they look at things with a different point of view. Most people fundamentally respect the natural resource, and if they understand why something is a concern, they’re going to be much more aware of how their activities affect those resources.” Boyd Hartwig, communications director of the Lolo, is quicker to address specific questions regarding the challenges rogue bike trails present for Forest Service staff. Trails such as Meow Mix, up Marshall Canyon, can require extensive rehabilitation to promote regrowth, Hartwig says. That comes only after the trails are closed and cleared of any man-made structures like jumps and bridges—obstacles not uncommon on more technical courses in the Missoula area. A simple search for Missoula on Pinkbike.com turns up a number of examples of freeride trails, both legal and illegal.

one trail, there’s no doubt another is in the works. “I was talking to Hilshey earlier,” Hartwig says, referring to Recreation Program Manager Al Hilshey, who was unavailable to comment for this article. “He says they’ve actually seen a decrease since 2010.” That, or the mice are getting better at hiding.

The outlaw game In May 2009, an agent with the Flathead National Forest discovered a set of hand tools on an illegal mountain bike trail on Crane Mountain, above the town of Ferndale. The agent confiscated the tools and left a business card in their place. The owner later called, confessing to having built the trail, which he called “Original Sin.” His name was Ron Cron. Cron’s ultimate goal made headlines in local papers when the story broke last year. He sought to mimic a group of freeriders from Wyoming known as

same vicinity. If I had small children and was using a recreation area, I might not feel comfortable having those small children around an ATV area or a nonmechanized use such as bikes.” Wilder—himself a mountain biker—shies away from singling out any one user group at length. When asked about the problems raised by illegal mountain bike trails, he says the real concern is “unauthorized uses in general.” Freeriders are just one consideration in a larger picture. Wilder is, however, much more specific about the damages that unauthorized use of federal land can cause. Public safety and protection of the resource are the Forests Service’s top priorities in land management, he says. Users might not even be aware of the subtle ramifications of building a freeride bike trail, a dirt jump or a timber ramp. “Not everyone has a background

“Generally, when [rangers] become aware of it, they go out and try to repair the resource damage, obliterate the user-made trail that’s illegal,” Hartwig says. “Sometimes the public reports those. We can’t be everywhere all the time, so there might be some trails out there we don’t know about.” Locating those trails is anything but easy. The freeriders who build and maintain them often do so in low-traffic areas and are reluctant to volunteer details to anyone beyond their fellow bikers. They’ll even go so far as to mask the beginnings and ends of their trails, carrying their bikes for several yards to avoid detection. They play a cat-and-mouse game with federal officials, spending days if not weeks constructing a trail or freeride feature only to abandon it once it’s discovered. It can be frustrating for the Forest Service too, Hartwig says. Even as rangers and other staff tear out

the Teton Freedom Riders, who had constructed and maintained illegal trails on the Bridger-Teton National Forest even as rangers struggled to shut them down. Their outlaw game against the Forest Service—which ultimately led to nonprofit incorporation and a collaborative partnership with the agency—was the subject of the 2009 documentary Freedom Riders. Cron believed if he built a trail and turned himself in, the Forest Service in western Montana would be forced to allow freeriders to continue riding. Instead, the agency fined him $300 dollars. Cron’s relationship with the Forest Service didn’t end there, however. He and other freeriders wound up working volunteer trail maintenance on a legal series of bike trails along Flathead Lake. Meanwhile, Cron continued to push for a network of

trails on Crane Mountain, attempting to raise money despite clear indications from the Forest Service that such development wouldn’t be approved anytime soon. Keith Hammer followed all this closely. His conservation organization, the Swan View Coalition, went so far as to FOIA the action against Cron as well as emails between various officials. To Hammer, Cron’s activities on Crane Mountain represent the potential threat this outlaw contingent presents to public land. “In the case of Crane Mountain, it’s really good wildlife habitat,” he says. “Regarding the trail clearing that went on, Ron Cron basically said, ‘All we did was cut open a bunch of game trails.’ Well, those are game trails. … Bears and elk and whatnot are trying to use those trails to get from point A to point B. Right there, off the bat, is the first impact to wildlife. Their trails are being taken over by what I call breakneck mountain biking.” Hammer also feels that the push to build rogue trails on Crane Mountain compounds existing problems with motorized use “in some of the exact same areas where the Forest Service has been trying to get a handle on unlawful use to begin with.” Above all, the Swan View Coalition abhors the disregard for laws meant not only to protect public land but to uphold the public process for developing trails. “The whole reason the law says you can’t go out and just do this is there’s supposed to be a planning process,” Hammer says. “It just totally short-circuits the whole public planning process.” Hammer does believe the freeride mountain bike community deserves a place to recreate. “It’s called Winter Sports Inc. on Big Mountain,” he says. “It’s already established there.”

To see your work undone Missoula Bike Source is slow on a recent Thursday morning. Owner Chris Larson sits behind the counter, chatting with the occasional customer that drifts in through the bike shop’s Russell Street storefront, near Mount Avenue. The place has been open for just a few weeks, but Larson is no stranger to fellow bikers in the community. He worked as a manager at Big Sky Bikes for years. He’s also ridden his fair share of technical terrain, both legal and illegal. “The amount of people that are recreating at all these different trailheads and the different riding styles show that there is a pretty good percent of people these days that want to ride a certain way,” Larson says. “The only way to do it and make it work right is have an area that’s designated for us—not try to do the pirated trails, because that’s not helping anyone.” After half an hour, we’ve come around to the subject of a solution. Larson is getting increasingly frustrated with every question. “God, this is just getting me so angry, talking about this,” he says.

Over the past two decades, Larson has watched as attempts to establish legalized freeride trails fell apart. The bikers had the Lolo National Forest’s ear once, about eight years back, he says, but the dialogue never seemed to go anywhere. “I think business owners of the bike shops need to get together, and all riders, whether it’s the cross-country guys, the freeriders, the downhillers,” he says. “We need to all sit down and explain all our points of view and have a clear understanding of everybody’s wants. And listen to what people are saying.” I ask if Larson feels he’s one of the guys to lead the charge. He shrugs, mentions he’s got a family now, a business. He bought 20 acres in the Bitterroot and built dirt jumps for himself. He and a friend ride on private property, keeping the trail pretty much to themselves. “I just keep hidden these days,” he says. Part of Larson’s attitude is born from a stockpile of frustration dating back to his years building and

Missoula Independent Page 16 May 31– June 7, 2012

biking rogue trails. The amount of time it takes to build even a single feature is tough, he says. One jump could take an entire day, and coming back to see it torn down is a bummer. He feels that the freeride community, in its quest to find some sort of home, just gets vilified. “We had this trail up in Pattee Canyon years ago,” he recalls, “and we had a guy run out after us, taking pictures, trying to hit us, trying to knock us off our bikes. And that’s okay? It’s okay to have somebody freak out and get violent with us all over some trail we were building? How did that harm him? “We didn’t call any cops or anything,” he adds, “because we felt like, ‘Shit, we’re to blame here.’”

Asking permission It’s a familiar habit among freeriders, always looking over their shoulders. Cris Winner started mountain biking around age 10. By 13, he was an

outlaw, building trails and features on public land without authorization. He kept his activities mostly confined to a patch of city land near his house in the Rattlesnake Canyon, though as he got older he’d bike over to Meow Mix or hitch rides to outlying trails with folks who had driver’s licenses. What Winner remembers most is the sense of being hunted. “From the beginning you felt you were being bad when you were building or riding on areas that were public,” he says. “At times, it was exciting to build and break the rules, when you’re 13 and 14, but you have to dodge around this idea of ‘Oh, we could get in trouble for building this jump.’” Nowadays, Winner steers clear of illegal trails. He lives in Bozeman but returns to Missoula every summer to coach the Missoula Freeride Camp, the group he founded about five years ago. The camp, which caters to mountain bikers ages 10 to 17, avoids unauthorized areas, he says. Winner started the camp largely to keep the sport of freeriding alive among Missoula’s youth. He says he only wishes those kids had more legal opportunities to hone their skills. “We were always paranoid, the whole time, doing these activities. And I think forcing young people, adolescents, into states of paranoia about trying to pursue their passion yet not offering any opportunities to pursue it, that’s a feeling I wish I’d never had.” If local mountain biker Matt Barnes can spur the conversation forward, there’s a chance Winner’s young freeriders won’t have to be paranoid. Barnes is on Missoula’s Open Space Advisory Committee and is working to re-incorporate the nonprofit Mountain Bike Missoula (MTB Missoula) to push for legalized freeride trails in the Missoula area. That group was successful in the past, spearheading projects like the Mo Z Trail on Mount Sentinel. But MTB Missoula fizzled over time, Barnes says, and they were never closely involved with the more extreme side of the sport. “Obviously,” he says, “there’s a need if people are going to that length to break the law to create those opportunities for themselves.” Barnes hopes to capitalize on the evergrowing popularity of mountain biking to not only meet the demands of freeriders but to better diversify Missoula’s trail system, “from kids on training wheels to downhillers with full-face helmets and full-suspension bikes.” Now is the time, Barnes says. There’s momentum thanks to the fame of local pro riders like Sam Schultz and the establishment of the Missoula XC mountain bike course at Marshall Mountain last year. The next six months, he says, will be “pretty critical in seeing what sort of public interest we can generate.” MTB Missoula may just be the uniting force freeriders need to have their voices heard. If the group can foster patience among the more extreme members of the mountain bike community, Barnes feels the effort could be a boon for the whole town. The real challenge comes in changing the prevailing mantra among freeriders that drives them to avoid red tape and build rogue trails in the first place: “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission.”


‘Let us do it right’ Back at Missoula Bike Source, Larson’s friend Nick walks in. The two get to talking about local freeriding. They’ve both traveled frequently to Washington, Utah and Canada, where agencies have embraced the mountain biking craze and set aside networks of trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Montana is just five to eight years behind that curve, Larson says. Nick equates it with the way snowboarding was 20 years ago, a sport with growing popularity but a slower pick-up in Montana than in more populous states. “It’s like being into sailboats and sailing but living a long ways from the ocean, or being into skiing and living in St. Louis,” Nick says of freeriding in Montana in 2012. “But here we’re at the bases of five mountain ranges,” Larson counters. “And we have great shops in this town, access to pretty awesome bikes. [And yet,] we gotta build our own shit or throw our bikes on our backs and hike up the side of something to get what we need.” The outlaw bikers, the rogue trails, the whole cat-and-mouse game, I say—is it possible all this has poisoned the well? Any future dialogue with the Forest Service about setting aside public land for freeriders could be colored by the fact that many within that community have taken matters into their own hands. I’d posed the same question to Winner,

who said that, since the Forest Service has never really given freeriders a chance, there’s blood on both parties’ hands. Larson admits he’s seen some trashy trails around Missoula, though he says he himself has been careful in the past when selecting where he builds. “When I go up to some of these trails, all the wood is still left there, the tools are left out, the beer cans are laying there. Yeah, that just makes it harder for us.” Larson’s frustration isn’t limited to his own mountain biking pursuits. Opening Missoula Bike Source has underscored another problem he’s

Wilder encourage anyone with questions on the process to call their offices, to open up that dialogue once more. It’s not that they wouldn’t like to accommodate a user group with a strong voice, he says. It’s that they and the user groups alike have to be aware of how that accommodation might fundamentally alter the landscape and change the forest experience for other users. “Historically, the Forest Service has allowed sort of conventional uses: walking down the trail, taking your horse, driving your ATV on a road,” Hartwig explains. “The mountain bikers who want a more Photo by Steele Williams challenging experience, they’ve taken it to the next step and said, ‘That’s not enough for us. We want to construct things. We want to noted for years: Without authorized freeride trails, build jumps and bridges,’ or whatever. That takes us there’s no market in Missoula for some of the latest outside the bounds of what we’re allowed to do.” As far as Larson, his buddy Nick and other bikand greatest bike technology. ers around Missoula are concerned, that model of “A lot of the companies that I sell have a huge conventional use on the Forest Service is hindering market of freeride and downhill bikes,” Larson says. balanced recreation. It’s public land, after all. “Don’t “I can’t even sell them here. I can’t floor them. I can special order them for people, and I do. But I can’t we help pay taxes?” Larson says. “Isn’t the Forest dare have three or four downhill bikes on the floor, Service our land, too? They’re supposed to be there because they won’t sell. That bugs me. It’s a market to manage it for us. So why not let us have what we want and help them do it right?” I’d love to push, and it’s growing.” Boyd Hartwig, of the Lolo National Forest, hears asakariassen@missoulanews.com all these complaints loud and clear.

The joys of chlorophyll FLASHINTHEPAN

cress have decent amounts of chlorophyll as well. In order to have chlorophyll on patrol all the time, you would need to be noshing the rabbit food with regularity—which might in turn make your bowels more regular. Indeed, chlorophyll is only one of the many reasons why greens are some of the best things you can eat. Spinach is one of the few greens that’s equally delicious raw, cooked or wilted. Cooking vegetables for long periods of time does alter their chlorophyll, but it isn’t clear whether this impacts the molecule’s carcinogen-binding activity. Raw plant cells are alive and buzzing with enzymes, and the general rule with vegetables is the rawer the better. But sometimes you just want to cook the pants off some spinach and make a big pot of saag paneer. I know I do. “Saag Paneer” means “spinach and cheese,” but it might as well be Indian for “chlorophyll stew,” so packed it is with pureed leaves. It’s easy to make the homemade cheese that goes in it, or you can fake it and use feta or queso fresco. If you live near an

Indian grocery store, you can buy genuine Indian paneer cheese. Some aficionados swear that saag paneer isn’t right if it doesn’t contain mustard greens as well as spinach. Kale, wild nettles, turnip greens, dandelion, lamb’s quarter and other edible weeds can be used with spinach as well. To make the paneer, heat half a gallon of whole milk on medium/high in a thick-bottomed pan, stirring often with a rubber spatula to prevent scalding the milk. When it begins to boil, turn off the heat and add four tablespoons of lemon juice, stirring steadily. The milk should separate into watery whey with thick curds floating on top. If the whey remains creamy, add another tablespoon or two of lemon juice. Pour the curdled milk through a colander lined with folded cheesecloth. The whey can be used for other purposes, like making ricotta cheese, or be fed to animals. Tie the corners of the cheesecloth together and hang, so it drains and the curds settle into a hard cheese. Squeeze out any remaining moisture before using. Now, wash your spinach and other greens, removing the stems from tougher plants like kale, nettles or mustard greens. For each half-pound of greens, chop one or two jalapeno peppers and a teaspoon of ginger. Cook the peppers and ginger for a few minutes in a quarter-inch of water. Add a halfteaspoon of salt, then add the greens. Cook for five minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. Let the greens cool, then puree in a blender. Cut the cheese into cubes and lightly brown them in a pan with oil or ghee; paneer cheese won’t melt. In a separate pan, with oil or ghee on medium heat, add a pinch of fenugreek seeds, a pinch of cumin powder and a pinch or more of coriander powder, and cook for 30 seconds. Add a chopped onion and some tomato—either fresh minced or a quarter-cup catsup or a half-cup canned—and one or two chopped garlic cloves. Cook until it’s integrated and soupy, then add the cheese and cook until the cheese heats up. Then add the pureed greens. Let it all cook together for a few minutes, and your saag paneer is done. Saag paneer is typically served with basmati or jasmine rice. It also goes great, if less traditionally, with a perfectly burnt steak.

Chlorophyll is quite a molecule. In the sequence of reactions known as photosynthesis, chlorophyll is what catches the incoming photon of sunlight and gets that party started. Without photosynthesis, life as we know it would not be possible. The mud season that follows winter would never be superseded by green growth. Tasty vegetarians, like cows, would have nothing to eat. In addition to supplying the entire biosphere with energy, on a personal level chlorophyll is good eating. Of all the plants we consume, spinach contains the most chlorophyll. Spinach also tastes the most like meat, in my opinion, perhaps thanks to the fact that chlorophyll is nearly identical to hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule in red blood cells. Spinach also contains high levels of iron, magnesium and folate, all of which, like chlorophyll, are considered “blood building.” Chlorophyll has become a darling of health-food devotees, praised for its antioxidant and energyboosting qualities, among many others. Recent scientific evidence supports some of these “folk” uses. The body apparently does convert chlorophyll to hemoglobin, which has long been suspected and might help explain the meaty vibe I get from spinach. Meanwhile, several new studies suggest that chlorophyll may play a significant role in thwarting some forms of cancer. It’s been known for years that molecules called chlorophyllins, which are made from chlorophyll, offer protection against cancers caused by aflatoxin, a carcinogen that comes from mold. They do so by essentially grabbing the carcinogens and showing them the door. The back door, that is, via the body’s excretory pathway. This eviction prevents the aflatoxin from being absorbed into the body, where it could have done damage. Chlorophyll and chlorophyllin are very similar molecules, and ever since the chlorophyllin studies came out it’s been speculated that chlorophyll from a diet high in green vegetables could offer similar protection against aflatoxin, via a similar mechanism. Recent research at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University offers evidence that it does. Now research is being done, at OSU and elsewhere, to determine if other carcinogens can be similarly foiled, either by chlorophyllin in pill form

or chlorophyll from food—usually spinach. Some of the carcinogens being studied are polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are found in smoke and air pollution, and heterocyclic amines, the carcinogens in burned meat. One lab has reported that dietary spinach inhibits the proliferation of rat colon cancer cells induced by heme, a molecule found in red meat that correlates with an increased risk of colon cancer. This research supports the idea of eating leaves with your meat—the darker, more chlorophyll-rich leaves the better. After spinach, parsley and water-

The Moscow Mule trend What it is: A Moscow Mule is vodka, ginger beer and lime juice, plus lime garnish. It’s an old-fashioned sort of drink, but one that connoisseurs have typically been able to get in most bars around town. The new trend? Bars are now serving the drink in a traditional copper cup, giving it a higher profile. Why it’s a hit: The copper cups have an old-world mug allure. Besides the aesthetic, they conduct cold instantly when filled with ice, which makes the drink perfectly refreshing for warm weather. People insist the copper reacts with the lime to give it a metallic taste, which also seems to make the spicy ginger taste pop. We found no science to back it up, but after doing a taste test, we swear it’s true. They’re also often served with a straw, but it’s better straight from the mug. What’s the history: The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 to promote Smirnoff. The interest in Moscow Mules tapered in the 1960s. Now they’re back.

What the bartenders are saying: Joe Hammond, bar manager for down-toearth watering hole Al’s and Vic’s, says all kinds of old-fashioned drinks are coming back. The copper cups, however, generate a lot of attention: One person drinking from a copper mug inevitably leads to other curious patrons ordering them. Hammond says Al’s deals out its dozen or so copper mugs quickly once the college kids shows up in the late evening. With the copper mugs costing $25 each, many bars now ask for a credit card for security, due to patrons stealing cups. Where to find them: Al’s and Vic’s, The James Bar, Sean Kelly’s, The Montana Club and probably other places around town. —Erika Fredrickson Happiest Hour celebrates western Montana watering holes.

SPOTLIGHT spinning wheel

Expressing yourself artistically as an adult comes with certain societal limitations and the distinct possibility that other adults may consider you, well, a dork to put it mildly. Writers and painters stay drunk or make themselves unemployable so they may stay connected to that deep, dark subconscious where all the good words and colors live. Somehow that lifestyle is lauded and worshipped. But for civilians with an itch and an ache to make and create, truly self-expressive moments can be difficult to come by. That’s where Turning the Wheel Missoula comes in. With their assistance and inspiration, they help people tap into that sub-conscious, that inner-child, and allow those folks to re-discover the joy of dance and acting that most of us had during childhood. That said, it’s one thing to dance in front of a mirror during a private moment of uncharacteristic booty shaking; it’s whole other universe when you’re shaking it in front of an audience. The folks at Turning the Wheel help facilitate the moment when the amateur brings her moves to the stage. In their show I Knew That Once, 45 amateurs and professionals dance and act beside one another, improvising moves while following a structure that gives them a way to tell stories and share life experiences. With a cast ranging in age from 7 to 77 and a set made up of 15,000 origami shapes, there is undoubtedly plenty to see and experience. Perhaps it will even get you to step away from that mirror at home and demonstrate your style for the masses. –Jason McMackin WHAT: I Knew That Once WHO: Turning the Wheel Missoula WHEN: Fri. and Sat., June 1 and 2, at 7:30 PM and Sun., June 3, at 2 PM WHERE: Masquer Theatre in the UM PARTV Center HOW MUCH: $15/$12 seniors and students/Free for kids two and younger

MOUNTAIN HIGH T wo falls ago, I experienced the alarming silence of the wilderness while elk hunting. It was one of the most frightening and comforting moments I have ever known. I sat in the crevice of a shattered boulder, overlooking a drainage in the saddle of the area’s tallest ridge. The sun had slipped west and a whorl of thick gray clouds full of heavy, cold air blew in from the north and quickly obscured previously visible peaks. The wind actually howled. Like a wounded creature. Shards of snow flew and pinged off my exposed head. In minutes, I could see neither the bowl below me nor the sky above. Everything was white and loud. Trees cracked and whistled, clapped and screamed. I considered whether to haul myself back down to the pick-up right-quick or sit out the high country tempest. The cold air got colder. I stood to leave and it all ended. A switch flipped. It was as if my standing up was the command for the fury to end. Large flakes of snow began to silently and deliberately drift to the ground. I made my way back to the rig. Silence reigned. These sorts of moments make

The mission of the MWA is to connect people with the wilderness and to protect the state’s wilderness heritage through education and advocacy. The MWA has several Wilderness Walks planned within two hours of Missoula this summer (and a total of 150 statewide) and plans to celebrate the anniversary with a screening of 3 Miles An Hour, with an introduction by noted backcountry outfitter Smoke Elser (star of the film and of the Bob Marshall Wilderness) as well as by the film’s producers, John Twiggs and Alison Perkins, at the Roxy Theater. The 50th anniversary of the Montana Wilderness Association’s Wilderness Walks takes place at the Roxy Theater, 718 S. Higgins Ave., on Thu., May 31, at 6:30 PM. Visit wildmontana.org.

Refused gems Frontier Space gets behind the French tradition of rejected art by Erika Fredrickson

Rejection isn’t an easy pill to swallow, but it happens even to the best artists. In 1863 Edouard Manet’s painting “Déjeuner sur l’herbe” was rejected by the Paris Salon. James Whistler’s “The White Girl” was rejected by the Royal Academy. Highbrow institutions apparently didn’t take kindly to depictions of prostitutes and mistresses, but the Salon des Refusés didn’t mind. The 1863 “exhibition of rejects” did show their works, providing a rebellious alternative to the juriedas-usual art institutions. In Missoula, a back alley gallery is taking a cue from the salon des refuses tradition. This First Friday, Frontier Space hosts Triennial Refusés, an exhibit of works from artists who were rejected from the Missoula Art Museum’s Triennial show. They might not be Whistler or Manet yet, but the list of “rejects” includes some pretty hot names—many of whom have been shown in MAM shows—such as ceramicist Brandon Reintjes (of the Montana Museum of Art and Culture), photographers Lucy Capehart and Chris Autio, painter Jean Albus and sculptor Eva Champagne. Frontier Space is a bricked alley between Sushi Hana and Sean Kelly’s. It’s closed in by a wrought-iron gate on one side, and the vibe is a mix between industrial and

Dickensian—a hidden sanctuary with doors leading to two concrete-floored galley spaces. It was established in the fall of 2010 as a collaborative project between art students William Hutchinson and Nathan Tonning, and it has served as a non-commercial art space that has hosted some intriguing, experimental installations and performance art. Tonning and Hutchinson recently passed the space to MFA art students Josh Eck, Burke Jam and James Louks. They’ll get the ball rolling with exhibits in the fall, but as a jumping off point they decided to do Triennial Refusés after being approached about it by artists Lisa Jarrett and Rebecca Weed. The refuses idea fit into their philosophy. “I think that idea of an alternative is really the core of Frontier Space,” says Jam. “It’s not alternative to just be moving against the grain but I think in the arts what really creates cultural enrichment is providing as much critical dialog as you can and really blowing open what the possibilities are. The key is creating the alternative experience.” Triennial Refusés is a cheeky ode to the salon des refuses, but it’s not meant to be an antagonistic statement about MAM in any kind of David-and-Goliath scenario. “We don’t want this to come off as an ‘eff you’ to

the art museum,” says Jam. “The idea behind it was not necessarily to be abrasive or to protest. It’s a small community and I think we’re all really working cooperatively to advance the artistic dialog in Montana. There’s just so much happening right now with contemporary work that we wanted to, with the refuses show, provide a wider view of that.” “There might be some rivalry historically,” adds Eck. “But that is not our intent.” MAM has often embraced edgy artists along with traditional, mainstream Montana artists. Its Triennial this year, which includes work from renowned artists such as Lela Autio and Shalene Valenzuela, plus largepresence installations by Joel Allen and Toni Matlock, was juried by Keith Wells, curator of art at Washington State University’s Museum of Art. Wells picked 38 artists out of 160 for the show. The outsider eyes, says MAM’s curator Steve Glueckert, always adds an element of surprise: This year, it’s about half artists the MAM and Missoula audiences know well and half lesser-knowns. There were plenty of artists left out: “That’s just part of the nature of the beast,” says Glueckert. When he was approached by Frontier Space about their wanting to sift through the unselected artists to put together the Triennial Refusés, he was happy to oblige. “There’s been a tradition of [salon des refusés],” he says. “They wanted to make sure that the audience was aware that there was serious work being done outside of the academy, so they would do these exhibitions. I’m sure there were hurt feelings back then, but also it was a way to create dialog. I’m excited that these guys are taking this on. I think it’s cool. The more art that’s seen, the better,” says Eck. Jam and Eck emit graciousness rather than pretentiousness. They get that they’re a back-alley gallery without a real address. But their niche is real. “I’d say if we are challenging anything it would be maybe people’s—and even our own—expectation of what art is and what it can be.” In that spirit, the three Frontier Space artists are looking to make a space that explores contemporary art—locally, internationally and in-between. Plans for the future include a poetry series, a cross-disciplinary lecture series and visual art exhibitions, like Triennial Refusés, that keep people talking. Even more, they say, they want to challenge the notion that Montana art fits into one box. “As soon as you get outside of Montana, people think that it’s just landscapes and horses—and that definitely exists and there’s value to that,” says Jam. “But there’s also a lot of other really incredible minds living and working here. The model of Frontier Space is not new, it’s been around for a long time, but it’s exciting. A lot of really phenomenal art that ends up at PS1 in New York starts out at weird little alternative crazy spaces that are formed by collectives. I think being at ground zero is exciting.” Triennial Refusés opens at Frontier Space, in the alley behind Sushi Hana, Friday, June 1, from 5 PM to 9 PM. Free. Check out Montana Triennial the same night, at the Missoula Art Museum, from 5 to 8 PM, or during museum hours through August. efredrickson@missoulanews.com


Scope Noise Arts Film Movie Shorts Slashed Tires Slashed Tires EP Off Tempo

Kenneth Piekarski, aka Slashed Tires, experiments with R&B bass lines and warbling vocals that meander into off-key universes. He’s a loop artist, so the repetitive tribal beats he creates mesmerize and each new addition—trumpet or braying guitar riff— adds a new texture. The Seattle artist’s new EP doesn’t quite do Slashed Tires justice. You have to watch the videos of him playing to audiences on the Puget Sound, his red crop of curly hair and thick glasses distinguishing him. The EP, though, is intriguing. It takes some patience and the right mood. It’s filled with cacophonous noise and droning. “Mull It Over” the dance track featuring singer Abi Swanson, has sweet lyrics such as “When I know you’re in my life, oh yeah, it’s such a feeling. / I could spend all day inside with you, it’s so appealing.” Those who recall local pop band Two Year Touqe

Josh Harty Nowhere Magnolia Recording Company

Thirty-some-odd years ago, a boy was born in North Dakota to a father who was both a preacher and the town sheriff. Over the years, that man just happened to teach his boy to make music. The result was Josh Harty, and he sounds just about like you’d expect him to, given those credentials. This is Americana country, pure and simple. Spare instrumentals, slithery violin riffs, train-engine rhythms and the perfect voice for singing lines like “Whiskey and

The Horse Thieves It’s rare that a band debuts by releasing two fulllength albums on one day, but that’s what The Horse Thieves did in October 2011. Led by Marshall McLean and Adam Miller, this Spokane-based group recorded Outlaw Ballads and Valley of Decision, albums based on McLean’s and Miller’s individual discontent with the past and uncertainty about the future. Darkness certainly pervades both albums, a feel that pairs well with their Americana-folk-meets-alt-pop sound. There’s no doubt about lines like “I focus on the pain, / Because at least I feel alive,” especially in a song called “I Don’t Want to be Happy.” But there’s also a level of hopefulness woven throughout: When they sing “I’ve never been more ready to begin” in the lullaby-esque “(I Was) Crazy (About You),” you get the sense that the singer truly

Various artists Sensacional Soul Vol. 3 Vampisoul

Vampisoul is a terrific Spanish reissue label, started a decade ago and specializing in American soul, R&B, boogaloo and any other genre where the word “greasy” is complimentary. Several years back, it began a series of Franco-era Spanish R&B compilations, “Sensacional Soul.” Volume 3 is just out and, if nothing else, it con-

will appreciate those sugar-coated moments. This is the funky, downthe-rabbit-hole counterpart to the sugar pop, however. Sometimes the off-key style grates, but if you’re into Dub Narcotic, it will mostly appeal. The sound is like improv jazz or lounge. Other times it recalls a mass of fish jumping in a lake or a watery sun rising from a mirage-filled horizon, and that’s pretty cool.

Albeit a short album, Nowhere has the sound of a musician who has found his voice, both literally and stylistically. The songs feel cohesive, and the ethos remains steady throughout.

With its insistent beat, gloriously sloppy drums and near-nonsense lyrics, the juicy “Wello Wello Wap,” by Nico, a Spanish band, is right up there with the Human Beinz’s “Nobody But Me” and Mohammed Rafi’s “Jaan Pehechaan Ho.” But there’s more. “What Can I Do” by Los Canarios sounds like prime Question Mark & The Mysterians with horns. “No Hay Amor Para Mí” by Los Arlequines starts with the groove from “I Can’t Turn You Loose” and turns into something even more urgent, with lyrics sung in incomprehensible English, not unlike Jim Morrison’s. There are a lot of gems on these 28 cuts, plus a lesson about the global impact and undying glory of ’60s American music. (Robert Meyerowitz)

Indians had mullets The ledger art of Dwayne Wilcox by Ted McDermott

When white people came to the Plains, they brought with them paperwork. They brought ledgers, so they could record their monetary transactions as they went about the business of overtaking an entire culture and setting up a new one. An American one. The native tribes had a tradition of painting on animal hides with mineral pigments, using bone and wood. As they encountered white Americans, they adapted their traditional artistic techniques to make use of the new

“I was doing warriors on ponies because that sold good and that’s what everybody wanted to see an Indian look like,” he says. “They didn’t want to see him in a baseball cap and tennis shoes. … We’re drawing these warriors and selling them. But we didn’t have to live through that. Our time is just as important as our grandfathers’ time. They gave us a lot of tools that carried us on in life, so why aren’t we reflecting some good about our culture today?

“Custer Eating Crow”

materials brought by these new people. They drew warriors and hunters and courtship scenes, among much else, on the ruled and lined paper that was designed for the accounting of the coming new economy. “God did that story get old,” says Dwayne Wilcox. He’s a contemporary ledger artist and he spent years on the art-fair circuit, telling this abbreviated history to an endless parade of curious onlookers who’d never heard of the tradition that his work referred to. “I always knew about ledger art,” he tells me from his home in Rapid City, S.D., “and I thought everyone else did too. But I was wrong.” Wilcox, a Lakota, grew up in a tiny town on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. “That’s where it all started,” he says, “’cause there was really nothing else to do in the early days. I’m from a generation that was in the twilight zone. … Pumping your own water, kerosene lamps, that kind of stuff. But, you know, that didn’t last very long, thank God.” He started drawing on used scrap paper his sisters brought home from boarding school, but he wasn’t satisfied with his materials. “I never found it inspiring to draw on old paper,” he tells me, laughing like he does throughout our conversation. “I wanted to draw on art paper.” He eventually left the reservation, spent time in the military, moved all over the country and made art on art paper. “I did the same kind of drawings on art paper as I do on this ledger stuff,” he says, “but the art paper—nobody ever really cared about it. Couldn’t really get a price that I wanted [for it] and everything. So you kind of learn after awhile.” Wilcox is candid about his struggle to balance his need to make a living as an artist, which means catering to an outmoded and racist perception of Indians, and his need to stay true to himself and to contemporary American Indian culture.

Missoula Independent Page 32 May 31– June 7, 2012

Something that’s got some strength to it, rather than just ‘Oh, the poor white people are just beating the hell out of us again.’” His response to all of these contradictory impulses can be seen in his exhibit Above the Fruited Plains at the Missoula Art Museum. His are narrative drawings that meld 19th-century Indian tradition and contemporary cartooning technique to make images that are funny and alarming, broadly farcical and bluntly realistic. In “Custer Eating Crow,” a pair of solicitous American Indians serve the bird to the man himself on a silver platter. In another drawing, a pair of nude Indians flee across a KOA campground full of teepees. In another, a gaggle of Indians in traditional dress relentlessly photograph a pair of middle-American tourists. In “There’s One in Every Crowd,” a group of modern Indians mill around—and the “one” seems to refer to the guy in the foreground who has a mullet. “Indians had mullets at one time,” Wilcox informs me, laughing again, “they just didn’t call it that. They called it the David Cassidy hairdo and the shag.” We might prefer to see Indians as quaint and noble historical relics—like real-life kokopellis!—but Wilcox makes us see their bad haircuts and their complicated contemporary situation. And he hopes to pave the way for future American Indian artists to do the same. “These next artists,” Wilcox says, “hopefully they don’t have to paint Indians talking sign language and just rebreathing life into the old crap. Nothing wrong with the old crap, but we gotta make some new stuff.” A First Friday opening reception for Dwayne Wilcox’s Above the Fruited Plains will be held Friday, June 1, from 5 PM to 8 PM, with an artist talk by Wilcox at 7 PM.

Charming check-in You can’t make fun of Marigold Hotel by Dave Loos

The line outside the Wilma stretched nearly an entire block down a rainy Higgins Avenue Sunday evening, and the absence of cigarette smoke and flannel made it clear that something out of the ordinary was unfolding: The average age of this posse looked to be, oh, 58ish. A surprise Garrison Keillor show, perhaps? I had no idea, and didn’t think much of it as

I attempted to cut the entire line and buy tickets for the film, only to be informed—nicely, of course—that everyone in line was waiting for that same film. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is indeed aimed at this very demographic, and it’s easy to make fun of, especially since the cast is predominately British and stars not one but two cast members from “Downton Abbey.” But let’s not forget that BBC’s “Downton Abbey” is amazing, and one of the actresses involved here is Maggie Smith, who you know better as the Dowager Countess of Grantham. Combine Smith with a cast that between them has 14 Oscar nominations and three wins, add in the charismatic star of Slumdog Millionaire and what you’ve got is a fun film with surprisingly little pretension and enough charm to overcome a predictable ending. It’s also essentially a two-hour advertisement for India’s tourism department, which in this case is a good thing. Smith plays Muriel Donnelly, one of seven British seniors who have traveled from London to Jaipur, India, lured by the promise of an exotic, luxurious and affordable new retirement community. What they discover is not exactly the same as promised in the brochure. Sonny (Dev Patel), the hotel’s eager manager, admits he may have optimistically Photoshopped some of the promotional materials. But TBEMH, as we’ll call it, is far from a slum. While it lacks some amenities like working telephones and the occasional room door, the centuries-old building nestled into a beautiful compound has character. And for a few of the guests like Evelyn ( Judi Dench), a

recent widower, and Douglas (Bill Nighy)—who has arrived with his wife after the couple invested their retirement savings in their daughter’s failed internet business—India offers a delightful respite full of new people and places. The film is essentially a series of vignettes that follow the acclimation of our seven pensioners into their new environs. There are a few misses, particularly the storyline involving Madge (Celia Imrie), a single rich lady on the hunt for a new rich husband, and Norman (Ronald Pickup), whose goal in life appears to be proving that he can still get it done in the sack at this advancing age. Cue the predictable geriatric sex jokes. But there is a depth to other stories in TBEMH that are both moving and funny. The always enjoyable Tom Wilkinson plays Graham, a retired British judge who grew up in India and has returned mainly in search of the man he loved. He is charming as he disappoints female suitors with the news he is gay—though “more in theory than in practice these days,” he admits—and the search for his former lover is painful and moving. Nighy is the best of the bunch here, fully embracing an unplanned life detour with zest and wit, and doing so with a wife (Penelope Wilton, the other actor you’ll recognize from “Downton Abbey”) who is kicking and screaming the entire way. Douglas is too nice and too loyal to see the marriage for what it is, and the relationship sets up a fascinating lesson regarding the dos and don’ts of aging gracefully. Omnipresent throughout is the overeager Sonny. We last saw Patel not cheating his way to victory on a game show in Slumdog Millionaire, and here he is trying hard to simultaneously please his guests, his mother and his girlfriend Sunaina (Tena Desae). His story offers us an important glimpse outside the confines of TBEMH into a modern India that is often still at odds with tradition, as evidenced time and again by Sonny’s overprotective and overbearing mother. Evelyn calls her new home city a “riot of noise and color,” and director John Madden’s finest accomplishment here is blending that apt description with the seniors who now inhabit this foreign environment. What could have turned into an unintended parody instead finds its way with surprising ease and heart. You’ll enjoy it as much as your parents will. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continues at the Wilma Theatre. arts@missoulanews.com

Turn off your PC & turn on your life.

I GET A KICKBALL OUT OF YOU My boyfriend of three months is 22, and so am I. He tells me he loves me but is horrible about returning texts and calls and following through with dates. (He seems to ditch me if something better comes along.) He also doesn’t treat me very well around others. Recently, he got really drunk at a party and was hitting on my friend all night, though she ignored him. I finally pulled him aside and said he was hurting my feelings, and he said I was too sensitive and I’m just jealous that people like him. He later disappeared from the party for over an hour, and when I asked him where he’d gone, he said, “What are you, my mom?” I know I don’t deserve to be treated like this, but he can be so sweet and kind when we are on my couch watching a movie or in bed snuggling. Part of me wants to leave, and part thinks he just needs to get used to being in a relationship, because this is his first “serious” one. —Loved and Unloved If you’re like a lot of women, you’ve dreamed about this since you were a little girl—that moment the man in your life puts his hands on your shoulders and says, “Would you mind ducking your head so I can see if that woman across the room is hot?” Men, like golden retrievers, have their flaws. They shed on the furniture, leave hairs in the soap, and hump your leg at inappropriate times. But when it’s clear that a particular man generally means well, these things are to be overlooked. Your boyfriend, on the other hand, claims to love you but ignores you, stands you up, belittles you, and publicly humiliates you, making it pretty clear that he’s looking to leave hairs in other women’s soap. And sure, he’s sweet to you when you’re snuggling in bed—probably because there are no other women under your comforter for him to hit on. Like many people, you place too much importance on hearing “I love you.” You want to believe that these words mean something—and they probably do: that he needs to throw you a romantic chew-toy from time to time so you’ll stick around for all the casual cruelty. In an abusive relationship, which this is, you begin to crave the little moments of sweetness and intimacy that you use to justify staying through all the spirit-chomping parts. The big picture is, you aren’t so much this guy’s girlfriend as you are his backup girlfriend (the spare

tire of girlfriendhood)—the one he keeps around in case there’s nothing or no one better to do. Part of you wants to leave? Follow that part. And turn this into a meaningful relationship after the fact—one you use to represent what you won’t put up with in the future. Sure, in the process of figuring out what you want in a man, you’ll have to “kiss a few toads,” but if you’re honest about who a guy is, you’ll see no reason to stick around for an extended makeout session.

LAST TANGO IN SUBURBAN LIVING ROOM I’m staying at a friend’s house while on a business trip. She and I talk frequently, but since I moved away, we have not had any quality time. We’d both looked forward to hanging out and catching up, but her boyfriend of six months has been here every night. I like him well enough, but the worst, the absolute worst, is the extreme PDA. They share long, passionate kisses and lie on top of each other and make out while we’re all watching TV. I want to say something, but what? —Grossed-Out Girl How nice to have time to catch up with your friend—to learn how her job’s going, what’s happening with her family, the kind of faces she makes while being dry-humped. When you’re a houseguest, the things you should be expected to bring are wine and maybe a box of fancy soaps, not earplugs and a blindfold. As welcome as they’re making you feel, it must be tempting to go passive-aggressive when they’re getting it on: “Mind if I tweet this?” Or “Should I move over? I don’t want to be sitting on third base.” But, your best bet for shutting down the heavy petting zoo is evoking sympathy, not defensiveness. Do that by telling your friend that you feel bad—like you’re interrupting something— and that it’s no problem for you to stay at a motel. Sure, there may still be live sex acts there, but they’ll be separated from you by a wall and some innocuous framed print. You’ll hear everything, but in the morning, you’ll leave with the image of an adequately painted lighthouse forever burned into your brain.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Let’s waltz the rumba,” said jazz musician Fats Waller, suggesting the seemingly impossible mix of two very different types of dancing. That’s an excellent clue for you to follow up on, Aries. I suspect that in the coming week you will have an unusual aptitude for hybridization. You could do folk dancing and hip-hop moves simultaneously. It will make sense for you to do the cha-cha as you disco and vice versa. You’ll have a knack for bringing the spirit of belly dance into the tango, and for breakdancing while you do the hokey-pokey.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Have you been feeling a warm fuzzy feeling in your money chakra? I hope so. The cosmos recently authorized you to receive a fresh flow of what we might call financial kundalini. Your insight into money matters should be increasing, as well as your ability to attract the information and influences you need to refine your relationship with prosperity. It may even be the case that higher levels of economic luck are operating in your vicinity. I’m not saying you will strike it rich, but you could definitely strike it richer.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your core meditation this week is Oscar Wilde’s belief that disobedience is a primal virtue. Be ingeniously, pragmatically, and cheerfully disobedient, Gemini! Harness your disobedience so that it generates outbreaks of creative transformation that improve your life. For inspiration, read this passage by Robert Anton Wilson: “Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and progress, everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of someone’s refusal to bow to Authority. We would be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent.”

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Some people tell me I’d invented the sounds they called soul,” said musician Ray Charles, “but I can’t take any credit. Soul is just the way black folk sing when they leave themselves alone.” I urge you to experiment with this idea, Cancerian. In my astrological opinion, you need to whip up a fresh, hot delivery of raw soul. One of the best ways to do that might be to leave yourself alone. In other words, don’t badger yourself. Don’t pick your scabs and second-guess your enthusiasms and argue yourself into a knot. Create a nice big space for your original self to play in.

b

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Where’s the most convenient place to discover a new species?” asks The Second Book of General Ignorance. What do you think the answer is, Leo? The Amazon Rainforest? The high mountainous forests of New Guinea? Northwest Siberia? None of the above. In fact, your best chance of finding a previously unidentified life form is in your own garden. There are hundreds of thousands of species that science still has no knowledge of, and quite a few of them are near you. A similar principle currently holds true for your life in general. It will be close to home that you are most likely to connect with fascinating exotica, unknown influences, and far-out adventures.

c

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Now and then my readers try to bribe me. “I’ll give you $1,000,” said a recent email from a Virgo woman, “if you will write a sequence of horoscopes that predict I’ll get the dream job I’m aiming for, which will in turn make me so attractive to the guy I’m pursuing that he will beg to worship me.” My first impulse was to reply, “That’s all you’re willing to pay for a prophecy of two events that will supercharge your happiness and change your life?” But in the end, as always, I flatly turned her down. The truth is, I report on the music of the heavenly spheres, but I don’t write the music myself. Still, I sort of admire this woman’s feisty resolve to manipulate the fates, and I urge you to borrow some of her ferocity in the coming week.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes in front of the sun and blocks much of its light from reaching our eyes. On a personal level, the metaphorical equivalent is when something obstructs our ability to see what nourishes us. For example, let’s say you’re in the habit of enviously comparing your own situation to that of a person you imagine is better off than you. This may blind you to some of your actual blessings, and diminish your ability to take full advantage of your own talents. I bring this up, Libra, because you’re in an especially favorable time to detect any way you might be under the spell of an eclipse—and then take dramatic steps to get out from under it.

e

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some secrets will dribble out. Other secrets will spill forth. Still others may shoot out and explode like fireworks. You won’t be bored by this week’s revelations, Scorpio. People’s camouflage may be exposed, hidden agendas could be revealed, and not-quite-innocent deceits might be uncovered. So that’s the weird news. Here’s the good news: If you maintain a high level of integrity and treat the brouhaha as good entertainment, you’re likely to capitalize on the uproar. And that’s your specialty, right?

f

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you go to a psychotherapist, she may coax you to tell stories about what went wrong in your childhood. Seek a chiropractor’s opinion and he might inform you that most of your problems have to do with your spine. Consult a psychic and chances are she will tell you that you messed up in your past lives and need a karmic cleansing. And if you ask me about what you most need to know, I might slip you some advice about how to access your untapped reserves of beauty and intelligence. Here’s the moral of the story, Sagittarius: Be discerning as you ask for feedback and mirroring. The information you receive will always be skewed.

g

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The state of Kansas has a law that seems more confusing than helpful. It says the following: “When two trains approach each other at a crossing, both shall come to a full stop and neither shall start up again until the other has gone.” From what I can tell, Capricorn, a similar situation has cropped up in your life. Two parties are in a stalemate, each waiting for the other to make the first move. At this rate, nothing will ever happen. May I suggest that you take the initiative?

h

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Should you get down on your knees and beg for love and recognition? No! Should you give yourself away without seeking much in return? Don’t do that, either. Should you try to please everyone in an attempt to be popular? Definitely not. Should you dilute your truth so as not to cause a ruckus? I hope not. So then what am I suggesting you should do? Ask the following question about every possibility that comes before you: “Will this help me to master myself, deepen my commitment to what I want most, and gain more freedom?”

i

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do you know why flamingos have their distinctive orange-pink color? It’s because of the carotene in the shrimp and other food they consume. If they change their diet, their feathers turn dull grey. That’s a dramatic example of the adage, “You are what you eat.” Let’s use it as a prompt to contemplate all the stuff you take into the holy temple of your body, Pisces. Not just the sandwiches and chocolate bars and alcohol, but also the images, sounds, ideas, emotions, and energy you get from other people. Is the cumulative effect of all those things giving you the shape and color and texture you want to have? If not, this would be a good time to adjust your intake.

They are also available for public inspection at the Missoula Office of Planning and Grants (City Hall, 435 Ryman Street, Missoula), Missoula County Rural Initiatives (physical location: 317 Woody Street, Missoula), and the Missoula County Commissioners Office (physical location: second floor of the Missoula County Administration Building, 199 W Pine, Missoula).

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 Center-Creamery 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 Build-

ing 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.

PUBLIC NOTICES 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. The sale is a public sale and any person, including Beneficiary and excepting only Successor Trustee, may bid at the sale. The bid price must be paid immediately upon the close of bidding at the sale location in cash or cash equivalents (valid money orders, certified checks or cashier’s checks). The conveyance will be made by trustee’s deed without any representation or warranty, express or implied, as the sale is made strictly on an as-is, where-is basis. Grantor, successor in interest to Grantor or any other person having an interest in the Property may, at any time prior to the trustee’s sale, pay to Beneficiary the entire amount then due on the Loan (including foreclosure costs and expenses actually incurred and trustee’s and attorney’s fees) other than such portion of the

principal as would not then be due had no default occurred. Tender of these sums shall effect a cure of the defaults stated above (if all nonmonetary defaults are also cured) and shall result in Trustee’s termination of the foreclosure and cancellation of the foreclosure sale. The trustee’s rules of auction may be accessed at www.northwesttrustee.com and are incorporated by the reference. You may also access sale status at www.Northwesttrustee.com or USAForeclosure.com.

Notice of Voting System Exhibition, Diagram and Voting Instructions Please note that the county’s voting systems are on public exhibition at Missoula County Fairground’s Election Center. Please see diagrams of the voting system(s) and ballot arrangement and instructions on voting below. SAMPLE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO VOTE ON AN AUTOMARK VOTING SYSTEM The AutoMARK is a ballot-marking system that will be in use during the upcoming election. Its main purpose is to allow voters with disabilities and other special needs to mark a ballot privately and independently. If you wish to vote on the AutoMARK, please inform the election judge at your polling place that you would like to do so. The election judge will give you a ballot (with the stub removed) that will go in the machine. After the system accepts the ballot, the system will provide instructions on how to vote the ballot. In order to make the ballot easier to read, you can change the contrast and font size. You can mark your choices by touching the screen or by using the keypad, which features written and Braille markings. The AutoMARK system will confirm your selections on the screen and by audio. After you verify that your selections are correct, the system will fill in your choices on the ballot and print the ballot. The ballot will then go to an election judge for depositing in the ballot box. If you need assistance at any time during the process, simply request it. SAMPLE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO VOTE ON AN M-100 PRECINCT COUNTER VOTING SYSTEM The following is a diagram for the M100 Precinct Ballot Counter that will be at each polling place. TO VOTE: 1. To vote, you must blacken the oval completely. SAMPLE SECRETARY OF STATE ( Vote for One) John Doe Thomas Jefferson Jane Q Public

VOTE BOTH SIDES – CHECK BALLOT TO SEE IF THERE ARE ISSUES PRINTED ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALLOT TO BE VOTED ON. 2. USE A #2 PENCIL OR BLACK INK TO MARK YOUR BALLOT. An Optical Scanner will count your ballot. If you use any other type of pen, it may not be counted correctly by the Scanner. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR BALLOT: When marking your ballot you should NOT make an X or a check mark. You should NOT cross out, erase, or use correction fluid on the ballot and if you make an error, you should request a new ballot. READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY! If you mark more candidates than you are allowed to mark for that position, it is considered an overvote. You may request a new ballot if you overvote in any race. If you do not correct your ballot, that race will not count because of the overvote; however, the remainder of your ballot will be counted. After you mark the ballot, you will be directed to place the ballot in the M-100 precinct counter, which will alert you to errors, if any, tabulate your choices and then deposit the ballot in the ballot box.
