Inside Letters Briefs Up Front Ochenski Range Agenda News Quirks

Asked the morning of Tuesday, May 22, on the Hip Strip in Missoula.

When’s the last time you caught a fish? Follow-up: What’s the best way to prepare a fish?

Lori Guess: Out of a fish tank? Or out of a river? I go out with people who are fishing, and I used to do it quite a bit myself. But me actually fishing, that's been quite a while, probably back in junior high school. KISS: Simply, that's best. On a grill, with garlic, lemon pepper, salt and butter.

Sharon Parnell: Never. I don’t have the patience. But when I was a kid, a friend at a fish hatchery used to grab a fish, cut it open, pull out its heart and watch it beat in his hand. I remember thinking it was cool and cruel at the same time. For the pros: Have a restaurant do it.

Ari A-Shively: It was on the Awatere River in New Zealand. It was amazing, with lots of deep pools. It was perfect for fishing. Fish fried: Pan-fried. Just add some butter, salt and pepper. Maybe some chili. That’s all you need.

The complexity of sexual assault I love Missoula, the diversity of its people and the small-town, friendly feeling that most of us experience living here, and I find recent sexual assault cases and the subsequent damage to our community disheartening. The divisiveness between Missoulians that has resulted from recent sexual assault and cover-up allegations strikes a personal chord with me. I was involved in a recent case after learning that someone very close to me was victimized. While coping with the truth and some horrifying evidence that was found, local law enforcement was my lifeline. I learned a lot, and many of my opinions changed through my ordeal. A huge disconnect exists between what police, psychologists and victims understand about the complexity of sexual assault and what the public understands. This divide makes communicating about these issues and reaching solutions nearly impossible. Coming out of denial and into reality, in many cases, takes time and support. There are a multitude of reasons why victims often don’t report these crimes initially. And there is an all-too-common response (known as victim-blaming) by some once crimes finally are reported. It’s the knee-jerk “what was she wearing” or “where was the mother” response, which shows ignorance and encourages victims to remain silent. Stunned by cruel, hateful responses from the abuser’s supporters in my situation, Missoula City Police guided me through the legal process and helped me understand

that these things are to be expected from closed-minded people who have also been manipulated by the perpetrators of these crimes. The victim herself, just a child, was punished for revealing a truth that, undoubtedly, provided justice for other past victims and prevented further future victims.

“We all hate rapists, sexual abusers and pedophiles in theory, but people rarely stick to those ethics once they learn that they know and trusted one.”

We all hate rapists, sexual abusers and pedophiles in theory, but people rarely stick to those ethics once they learn that they know and trusted one. People who

Unfortunately, 90 percent of sexually abused children are victimized by someone their family loved and trusted. One in five girls will be raped during her college years by someone she knows, yet we worry about strangers hiding in bushes while giving complete trust to the cute guy from the sports team. I’m not implying that anyone in recent news is guilty of alleged crimes—that will be determined in time—simply that we, as a community, are painfully naive when it comes to education and awareness of sexual assault. While they’re unpleasant to talk about, we need to understand the complex psychology of these crimes if we are ever to have productive discussions about them. In the long term, we need to educate parents and children about what the real dangers are; in the short term, those who choose to blame anyone but the criminal in these cases should spend a quick 10 minutes doing online research with an open mind. Relying on outdated, preconceived notions simply isn’t working. Stacy McCarthy Missoula

Comments from MissoulaNews.com

Blaze a trail

Chris Mullin: I might, and I emphasize might, have caught one when I was four or five years old, out in Gig Harbor, Wash. But I’ve caught nothing since then. Fishy business: I don’t particularly care for fish, but baked with a little lemon is a good way.

Eric the Black: Last summer, at Elk Meadows near Lolo Pass, on a fishing trip with my wife. It’s one of my favorite and most beautiful places around here. Fillet fiend: With good fish, it’s hard to go wrong. Just fillet it out and put it on the barbecue, or pan-fry it with olive oil, salt and lots and lots of garlic.

Missoula Independent Page 4 June 7– June 14, 2012

The Forest Service will happily trade our public land to timber companies to have the trees cleared and roads punched into it (see “Biking bad,” May 31). Yet they will not allow us to have a trail that is downhill/freeride specific. A road lasts a lifetime and a trail will go away in a couple years if it is not used. With proper oversight and some trailbuilding standards, Missoulians could finally have a trail/area that we could put effort and love into without fear. This would be a wonderful thing that everyone could enjoy. Tell the Forest Service that

this is something that should be done, and we can make it happen. Without public pressure, they will continue to silence the biking community and keep us hiding in the mountains. Posted on 05/31/2012 at 11:10 a.m.

It’s not about pot An issue that resonates with Montanans a lot more than medical marijuana is Attorney General Steve Bullock’s ongoing defense before the U.S. Supreme Court of Montana’s campaign finance laws that limit corporate contributions and their intersection with

the Citizens United decision (see “Damned if you do,” May 31). To think that the Montana race for governor will swing on pot is politically naive. Posted on 05/31/2012 at 10:02 a.m.

Cody Raymond Downey, 24, of Billings, is arrested on a felony charge of sexual intercourse without consent for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl under the Orange Street Bridge roughly a week and a half earlier. Prosecutors say that the girl skipped school to spend time with the man, who allegedly covered the girl’s mouth when she screamed during the attack.

• Thursday, May 31 A green bicycle lies mangled in the middle of the intersection of Orange and Front streets after the driver of a white Toyota Corolla crashes into a cyclist. The woman riding the bike is rushed to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

• Friday, June 1 Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock, the Democratic nominee for governor, appears on the “Rachel Maddow Show.” The liberal Maddow praises Bullock’s defense of Montana’s campaign finance laws in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.

• Saturday, June 2 At around 9:30 p.m., firefighters respond to and quickly extinguish a blaze in a building at the former Stimson lumber mill in Bonner, now owned by Western Montana Development. With the building already under demolition, the damages are minimal.

• Sunday, June 3 Clouds don’t deter pedestrians, cyclists and roller skaters from frolicking alongside gymnasts, martial arts aficionados and curiosity seekers at Missoula’s fourth Sunday Streets Missoula. The free festival, which closes a seven-block stretch of Higgins Avenue, aims to make the Garden City a healthier community by encouraging non-motorized transportation.

• Monday, June 4 The Missoula City Council votes 10-1 in support of a 2-cent per gallon non-diesel gas tax. The move is an effort to subsidize the high costs of installing sidewalks. The proposal must still garner approval from the Missoula County Board of Commissioners and, pending that body’s approval, the public.

• Tuesday, June 5 Republican Rick Hill comes out ahead of a crowded pack of Republican gubernatorial hopefuls competing in the Montana primary election. Hill earns 35 percent of the vote to beat six GOP challengers. Come November, he’ll take on Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock, who wins the Democratic primary in a landslide over Heather Margolis.

An unearthed Missoula fire hydrant pokes from a pile of dirt during a Main Street water-main replacement project, Tuesday afternoon, June 5. A new water line from Madison Street to Woody Street is due to be completed by June 11.

Primaries Progressives count votes On Tuesday, June 5, Democratic incumbent state representative Ellie Hill looked nervous walking into Missoula’s Central Bar and Grill. “It’s just a lot of adrenaline, I guess,” she said, tearing up. The nerves lingered as Hill mingled among friends at Forward Montana’s primary election night watch party, even after results showed Hill beating her nearest opponent, Lou Ann Crowley, by hundreds of votes. The win means Hill will face off with former Missoula City Councilwoman Lyn Hellegaard, a Republican who ran unopposed in her primary, in the general election. As the ballot tallies came in Tuesday night, Hill’s race for House District 94 was one of several in which emotions ran high. At Missoula’s Union Club Bar, U.S. House hopeful Dave Strohmaier drank dark beer with his supporters who gathered at tables dotted with campaign literature. Strohmaier, a Missoula City Councilman since 2005, was one of seven Democrats vying for Denny Rehberg’s vacated seat. Despite the fact that he trailed Billings State Sen. Kim Gillan as the hours wore on, Strohmaier kept up hope. Gillan

ended up winning the primary with 31 percent to Strohmaier’s 14 percent. Gillan will now challenge Republican Steve Daines, who garnered 71 percent to win the three-way GOP House primary. Also at the Union Club, outgoing Associated Students of the University of Montana president and 31-year-old Democratic candidate for House District 98 Jenifer Gursky was already strategizing for her November race against Republican Larry Jones just moments after hearing that she appeared poised to beat David J. Crowley. “It’s about boots on the ground,” Gursky said. In the Senate District 46 Democratic primary, outgoing state Rep. Sue Malek beat Missoula attorney Tyler Gernant. Malek will now run against Republican Kevin Blackler who, of the 1,515 total ballots cast, eked out a 25-vote lead over GOP primary challenger Kevin Kerr. Kimberly Dudik, meanwhile, trounced Jonathan Dunbar with 78 percent in the House District 99 Democratic primary. She’ll run against Missoula Republican and gun rights activist Gary Marbut. In House District 93, University of Montana genetics professor Douglas Coffin drew 78 percent

to beat Coy Harwood. Coffin will take on Republican Brandon Simpson in the General Election. In the Missoula County Commissioner’s race, Jean Curtiss won the three-way Democratic primary with 66 percent. In November, she’ll face Republican Mark Brady, who won the Republican primary with 74 percent. Montana’s General Election is November 6. Jessica Mayrer

Economy Plenty of room at the inn One indicator of the health of the local hotel industry can be seen on East Broadway in Missoula, at the Campus Inn, where management knocked out a few rooms to make space for a gourmet hot dog shop that’s opening this week. “Tourism is down, room rentals are down, so right now, I think this is a great idea,” the Campus Inn’s Tom Dooley recently told KPAX. Another indicator came last week in the form of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. Missoula’s 101-room Hawthorn Suites near the Missoula airport is struggling, and according to the local franchise’s owner,

Missoula businessman Thomas Poindexter, the business needs to renegotiate the interest rate on its loan to ensure solvency. Poindexter says business has been “decent” since the hotel opened three years ago. “I don’t think it’s different than any other business in this economy,” he says. “It’s tough going and I think it is for a lot of people in town, whether you hear about it or not.” Missoula has 44 hotels with a total of about 3,100 rooms, according to the Missoula Convention and Visitors Bureau. A hotel construction boom began on North Reserve Street in 2006, with the completion of the Hilton Garden Inn. Since then, a Holiday Inn Express and a Staybridge Suites opened across the street, and the Hawthorn opened closer to the airport, near where a Wingate Inn opened in 2003. There’s a proposal to build another hotel downtown, at the southwest corner of Orange and Front streets. Has Missoula already overbuilt? “Possibly,” Poindexter says. Barb Neilan, director of the Missoula Convention and Visitors Bureau, doesn’t think so. “I don’t want to say that we’ve overbuilt,” she says, “but it’s taking time for the economy to roll back around to the levels of where we were before. And it’s coming. … I think our tourism season this year, from all indicators, is going to be good, even with the scare we had for a while on gas prices.” Poindexter points to a different issue: Missoula’s “negative business climate.” He doesn’t offer specifics. He’s hopeful he can work with his lender through the bankruptcy reorganization process to change the terms of the loan and stay in business. “We’ve survived and will continue to survive,” he says. “It’s just that it’s not the business that it’s really talked up to be.” Matthew Frank

City Saving the urban forest One-hundred-year-old maple trees tower over Missoula rooftops. The green canopy produces oxygen, absorbs pollution and helps define the Garden City’s historic character. Those old trees, however, are nearing the end of their natural lives. “It’s generally understood that the vast majority of these trees will be gone in 20 years,” says Missoula City Councilman Bob Jaffe. That looming threat is prompting the city to take action. Last week, Jaffe proposed creation of a new special tax district that, if it garners approval from the Missoula City Council and the public, would gener-

ate money to preserve and replace aging trees. As Jaffe envisions it, the district would encompass neighborhoods that have a disproportionate number of old trees, like the University and Slant Street neighborhoods. “It seems like people who live in the neighborhoods with trees would be interested in paying a little bit to support the trees,” Jaffe says. “And that’s what we’ll be asking.”

Missoula Parks and Recreation Director Donna Gaukler says that the city now spends roughly $310,000 annually caring for the urban forest. That sum includes the costs of tending to the roughly 25,000 trees that dot public thoroughfares. It also pays the expense of cutting down dying trees and planting about 175 new ones annually. Gaukler says the city’s urban forestry program is strapped. “In order to move from a reactive urban forest to a proactive urban forest, we probably need to approximately double that budget.” The tight forestry budget makes it impossible to prune trees as often as the city should. Standard forestry practices recommend trees be pruned every seven years; Missoula trees are pruned roughly every 45 years. “They’re kind of on their own,” Gaukler says. Gaukler says additional funds created by the special tax district would enable the city to prune more consistently and, therefore, extend the lives of trees. Jaffe next will meet with Gaukler and the Missoula City Attorney to draft proposal specifics. It will then go before a Missoula City Council committee. As it’s early in the discussion, details are still being fleshed out. “Is it based on property value?” Jaffe asks. “Is it based in street frontage? You know, how is it done?” Jessica Mayrer

Recreation Rending the silence When Leslie Gray purchased her little piece of Blacktail Mountain in 1988, the place was a wonderful environment—“quiet and peaceful.” Now, she says, the forest above Lakeside has become a “dumping ground.” Motorists ignore the residential speed limit. There’s garbage in and around Stoner Creek. There are poachers, keggers, weeds. And, if the Swan Lake Ranger District greenlights its latest recreation proposal, there will be ATVs and motorcycles, too. The Flathead National Forest is taking a bit of heat in the Lakeside community over the Island Unit Trail System Additions Project. The proposal, initiated in 2009 to diversify the area’s public trail system, includes opening 34 miles of backcountry roads and trails to motorized use. That’s just one of a number of trail expansion proposals affecting all user types, motor or no. But it’s the one causing the most trouble. “The tremendous amount of use we now see up there is impacting the wildlife,” Gray says. “If you have ATVs and motorcycles running around the woods, I can only imagine what the outcome of that will be.” The district says that the availability of motorized trails on the Flathead has declined in recent years, mostly due to environmental considerations such as grizzly bear recovery. That includes roughly 60 miles of motorcycle trails on the Swan Range. “These decisions have reduced the amount of motorized trail opportunities forest-wide,” the Island Unit proposal states, “which may have led to displacement of motorized uses, as well as unauthorized/unmanaged motorized use.” But Gray feels officials are now simply “kowtowing to special interest groups, specifically ATV and motorcycle clubs,” she says. “It’s throwing the dog a bone. ‘Hey, here’s Blacktail.’” Gray’s not alone. Neighbors, conservationists and non-motorized users such as hikers and horseback riders voiced their own concerns at a town hall meeting earlier this spring. Now Gray is attempting to bring them together as some sort of Blacktail Mountain conservation group. They’re willing to do “whatever it takes,” she says. “We will be filing an administrative appeal if they proceed with this project... There’s going to be significant impacts on the environment, the wildlife and the residents.” Alex Sakariassen

Votes cast Tuesday for Terry farmer Dennis Teske, Denny Rehberg’s challenger in the 2012 Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Rehberg got 104,474 votes.

etc. With Montana’s 2012 primary season over, candidates across the ballot are rushing to fortify new positions. But in one race, the partisan trenches have already been dug. The shelling started months ago. Sen. Jon Tester and Rep. Denny Rehberg are giving each other no quarter. The Tester campaign hit Rehberg hard last week for his role in defeating a proposed $28 million funding increase for PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury research. Rehberg’s camp quickly refuted the allegation, claiming Rehberg had supported the appropriations bill in question. True. But Tester, whose latest campaign ad highlights his personal commitment to injured veterans, caught his Republican challenger on a technicality. Rehberg did vote against Democratic Georgia Congressman John Barrow’s amendment to the bill, which would have redirected unused federal funds from the Defense Base Closure Account to a pot of $582 million already set aside for medical and prosthetic research. Barrow’s motion would have shifted another $28 million toward decreasing the deficit. Barrow lost on party lines, with Rep. John Culberson, a Republican from Texas, denouncing the motion as “a very sad … and shallow and disappointing political stunt.” Rehberg struck back, criticizing Tester for appearing at a high-priced fundraising dinner June 1 at the San Francisco home of Sen. Dianne Feinstein. It was a solid blow. The event, which cost $15,000 per ticket, raised funds for a host of Democratic senate campaigns in the West, including Tester’s. However, according to the fine print on the invitation, the end-run beneficiary is none other than the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Tester has blasted outside spending and influence in his race for re-election. So his appearance in San Francisco seems like a significant backslide. Politico reported earlier last month that the DSCC had purchased $3 million in broadcast ad time in Montana for the 2012 senate race. Considering the organization’s habit of referring to Rehberg as a “Washington politician” prone to siding with Wall Street executives, it isn’t hard to speculate where their support will go. The curtain has lifted on the general election. The first Tester-Rehberg debate is less than three weeks away. Ads are already running wild on television and radio. There’s no way we can stay ahead of it all, but as the bombardments increase in frequency, we won’t let hypocrisy and rhetoric go completely unchecked.

Large and local Montana gets into the megaload business by Alex Sakariassen

Many of those jobs will require trained laborers like welders and fitters. Lee says the company’s promise to hire qualified locals is a “verbal commitment.” The company’s ability to make good on that commitment, however, hinges on a lot of ifs. And if heavy oil contracts come pouring in, the route to the tar sands will necessitate frequent oversized load travel. That means increased wear and tear on state highways, traffic congestion and a host of other public and environmental safety concerns all raised during the KMTP discussion. The region of the state now home to megaload construction was largely silent on Imperial Oil’s proposal, however. Officials in some of those counties supported the heavy haul.

Adios, experience Four seasoned reporters leave the Missoulian by Matthew Frank

Last Wednesday, May 30, was Joe Nickell’s last day at the Missoulian, the end of a nine-year stint as an arts writer for the paper. On Thursday, he was still writing about arts. Nickell is working on a book about Bill Ohrmann, a 93-year-old retired rancher and painter in Drummond. And, as he’s done every year for the last 22, Nickell is writing program notes for an orchestra in Indiana. “I’m a writer,” he says. “If I’m not writing for money, I’m writing in my journal. I’m writing something constantly. That hasn’t changed. That won’t change.”

Nickell’s is the third familiar byline to leave the Missoulian’s pages in as many months. In early May, Michael Moore, who worked at the paper for 27 years, most recently as city editor, accepted a buyout offer. So did education and arts reporter Jamie Kelly, who left in late March after 15 years. And education reporter Chelsi Moy, a five-year veteran, is planning to leave the paper in July. Together the four have accumulated more than 55 years of experience at the Missoulian. Their departures shake up a newsroom in the midst of a significant reorganization, as Missoula’s daily paper, like all newspapers, struggles to find profit as the internet turns the publishing industry on its head and wrings out advertising revenue. The Missoulian, owned by Lee Enterprises, one of the country’s largest newspaper publishers, which emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy early in the year, offered buyouts to senior staff as part of an effort to cut costs. Shifts in the paper’s business model have included charging readers for access to online content.

It was pretty low.” Devlin says the paper wants reporters “who feel comfortable and who are energized and excited about telling their stories across a wide array of platforms,” whether it’s the paper’s print edition, its website, Facebook, Twitter or Storify. “I think it’s a good thing, but certainly it demands that reporters and editors and photographers look at all those different ways that they can tell a story.” Devlin also says that while the paper doesn’t plan to give any of its new hires the “city editor” post Moore occupied, the reorganization “is about getting more [editors’] eyes on the stories.” Nickell, who moved to Missoula in 1997 when he Photo by Chad Harder was freelancing for West and skills to the mix, particularly in the Coast technology and business publicaareas of the internet and social media.” tions (despite the fact that he hadn’t One new hire, Ashley Klein, who comes taken a single journalism class), says he’d to the Missoulian from the Great Falls never before felt like a job was a calling, Tribune to be an assistant news editor, “and I did feel that way about the arts starts June 11. beat at the Missoulian.

Return stolen land It’s past time to give the Black Hills back by Paul VanDevelder

Every now and then, a bombshell of a story comes along that screams for a reasonable amount of historical context. Why? Because it doesn’t make sense without it. But given a citizenry as poorly informed about its own history as ours, our gross national product may best be measured i n f o o l i s h n e s s . Fo r i n s t a n c e , t h e Intercollegiate Studies Institute recently administered a civics test to 2,500 elected politicians and college graduates, and 71 percent of them flunked. The average score of 51 percent revealed that seven out of every 10 Americans with college degrees would fail a rudimentary citizenship test. The bombshell of a story I refer to hit the wires this May: “U.N. fact finder on indigenous rights to recommend land restoration for Native Americans,” said a headline in the Washington Post. In the West, this sort of news can get folks worked up. It seems that a special “rapporteur”—an investigator working on behalf of the United Nations Human Rights Council—had just met with members of the administration and the U.S. Senate for two weeks to assess the implementation of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The investigator’s conclusion: South Dakota’s Black Hills are an excellent example of stolen land, and they should be returned to the Indians who originally lived there. But if almost three-quarters of “welleducated” American citizens can't pass a basic civics test, how many of us know the first thing about the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples? Moreover, how many Americans know that treaties with Indian tribes indicate a formal acknowledgment of sovereign-to-sovereign legal status—something that is still protected by the U.S. Constitution as the “supreme law of the land”? The few Americans who do know these facts also know that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in 1980, that the Black Hills were indeed stolen from the Sioux by the U.S. Congress in 1877. But though the court awarded the tribes $100 million in compensation, that money has never been touched by the Sioux; it has been accumulating inter-

est in the U.S. Treasury ever since. How would transferring that land back to the Indians work out for the non-Indians who own property in the Black Hills today? It’s safe to say it would work out much better for them than it did for those Indians’ ancestors, when this country first stole it from them well over a century ago.

The investigator’s conclusion: South Dakota’s Black Hills are an excellent example of stolen land, and they should be returned to the Indians who originally lived there. After World War II, our visionary ambassador to the United Nations, Eleanor Roosevelt, helped write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in order to prevent the atrocities of the Holocaust from ever recurring. The declaration was ratified in formal treaty deliberations by every member nation of the U.N., except for one—the United States. This country finally signed the document in the 1970s, just to make the embarrassment go away. Twenty years later, as indigenous groups around the world began asserting their rights, their leaders at the United Nations wrote a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples based on Roosevelt’s declaration. When this new declaration was adopted in 1996, it was déjà vu all over again, as every member nation eventually

signed on but one—the United States. Why? Because the same political forces that denied basic rights to minority groups for 200 years are still in power, particularly in the South and West. Moreover, despite their oft-proclaimed regard for the U.S. Constitution, they’re not about to concede what is demanded by that document: the recognition of the sovereignty of native nations. Bending to those political forces, Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush both stonewalled this treaty. To its credit, the Obama administration altered course and endorsed the new declaration of rights for indigenous people in 2010. The U.N.’s special rapporteur, James Anaya, told members of the U.S. Senate that American Indians are unanimous in their cries for greater protection of their constitutional sovereignty. “In all my consultations with indigenous peoples in the places I visited, it was impressed upon me that the sense of loss, alienation and indignity is pervasive throughout Indian Country,” he said. The token bits of goodwill extended to Indians in recent years have not begun to overcome the persistent legacy of oppression and the denial of basic rights, he added. This is the context of a lingering source of shame in our shared history, and it is one that we would do well to put behind us. Two-hundred-and-twenty-four years after our nation’s founding, it’s high time we started living up to our idealistic promise of observing basic human rights and embracing the dignity of all people. The best way to get our own house in order is to begin by doing one right thing, something we’ve put off doing for far too long. Let us return the Black Hills to the Sioux Indians. After all, it’s theirs. Paul VanDevelder is a contributor to Writers on the Range, a service of High Country News (hcn.org ). He lives in Portland, Ore., and is the author of Savages and Scoundrels: The Untold Story of America’s Road to Empire Through Indian Territory.

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

CURSES, FOILED AGAIN - Police investigating a fire at an automotive shop in Gloucester Township, Mass., accused Mark Trigg, 20, and Cameron Semple, 21, of setting the fire to cover up a burglary. Trigg had a master key to certain vending machines, but after he and Semple broke into the shop, they found the key didn’t fit the machine there. When they opened a door to look for items to take, they triggered an alarm and fled. They soon returned, police said, to “wipe clean any fingerprints left behind.” Trigg, “fearing he did not clear their fingerprints,” set fire to the building and called 9-1-1 to report the fire under a false name. Trigg and Semple then “sat across the street and watched the firefighting operations,” police said. An arson investigator identified Trigg as a suspect by calling the phone number recorded at the 91-1 dispatch center. Trigg answered and provided his real name. (Gloucester County Times) Robert Strank, 39, tried to rob a bank in Beavercreek, Ohio, according to police, but suffered a medical condition that prompted tellers to call for medics. Before they arrived, the stricken Strank handed one of the tellers a note demanding cash. Medics arrived, briefly examined Strank and then turned him over to police. (Dayton’s WDTN-TV) BUTTINSKY DAD - Randy Swopes, 52, of Waukegan, Ill., accepted a plea deal that kept him out of prison for sewing his son’s butt. The boy, who was 14 at the time, was suffering from an anal fistula. Rather than take his son to the hospital, the father used a needle and thread to sew the fistula shut. The makeshift stitching was discovered when the wound became infected, requiring the boy to be hospitalized. (Gurnee’s Lake County News-Sun) THE DON’T-SHOW-ME STATE - Seeking to determine whether members of the Missouri National Guard dispatched to Joplin after last year’s tornado to secure the city instead looted it, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch filed an open-records request. The guard denied the request, citing its exemption to the state open-records law. In fact, Missouri is the only state that shields the National Guard from public accountability, an exemption from the state’s Sunshine Law that even the lawmaker who in 1987 requested it believes was a mistake. “I’d have a hard time supporting any government entity paid for by tax dollars being exempted from the open-meetings law,” former Sen. John Scott said. Denied access to records, the newspaper went directly to Brig. Gen. Randy Alewel, commander of the 35th Engineer Brigade. He confirmed that members of his unit were involved in the looting and that “disciplinary action was imposed on those soldiers.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED - State police who broke up a fight between two men in Upper Paxton Township, Pa., reported that one man attacked the other with two knives while the other man defended himself by wielding a flamingo lawn ornament. (Harrisburg’s The Patriot-News) SLIGHTEST PROVOCATION - Police responding to a domestic disturbance in Palmer Township, Pa., reported that Joyce Speciale-Detweiler, 53, beat her husband with a vacuum cleaner pole after they argued about his “facial hair style.” Donald Detwiler said his wife attacked him even after he told her he planned to shave later that day. (Lehigh Valley’s The Express-Times) After a man in his early 20s smeared his girlfriend’s face with cake at a party, they both thought it was funny, according to San Diego police, who reported, “The girlfriend’s brother, a male in his mid20s, did not think it was funny. He took out a knife and stabbed the boyfriend and two other males attending the party.” (Los Angeles Times) LITIGATION NATION - Claiming the “ridged seat” of his 1993 BMW motorcycle caused him to have an erection that lasted two years, Henry Wolf sued BMW North America and Corbin-Pacific, the seat’s maker. The lawsuit stated the severe case of priapism developed soon after Wolf completed a fourhour trip in San Francisco, causing him “continuing problems,” according to his lawyer, Vernon Bradley, who noted that his client “is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.” (San Francisco Chronicle) DRINKING-CLASS HERO - When Jose Sanders, 22, tried to buy beer at a liquor store in Braselton, Ga., the clerk thought he looked too young, asked to see his identification but still wouldn’t sell him beer. Sanders told the clerk to call the police, declaring, “I have no worry. My whole intention is to buy this beer.” When police arrived, they arrested Sanders for disorderly conduct. Assistant Police Chief Lou Solis said Sanders admitted using profanity after he became “kind of frustrated,” but insisted he was just talking to himself. “Sometimes I talk out loud,” Sanders said, explaining he has a medical condition that affected his growth, causing him to appear younger and making him a constant victim of discrimination. (Atlanta’s WSB-TV) REASONABLE EXPLANATION - Sheriff’s deputies dispatched to a vehicle burglary in Weber County, Utah, found Justin Atmore, 31, along with several burglary tools, including lock picks, pliers, knives, a screwdriver and bolt cutters. The arrest report said Atmore insisted he was just practicing to be a locksmith. Unconvinced, deputies searched Atmore’s truck and found stolen purses and wallets, a camera, stolen DVDs, gems valued at $5,000 and a stolen .380-caliber handgun. (Ogden’s Standard-Examiner) Charged with grand theft after a surveillance video showed him stealing chairs and a carpet from a neighbor’s apartment in Doral, Fla., Spanish-language television news anchor Frank Cairo, 48, explained, “I make half a million dollars and don’t need to be stealing.” (The Miami Herald) COVERT FASHION - Noting the rise of concealed-weapon permits from 5 million in 2008 to 7 million today, at least three companies are creating clothing designed to hide the fact that the wearer is packing heat. Woolrich offers an entire concealed-carry line, including $65 chinos that feature an additional pocket and stretchable waistband. 5.11 Tactical announced it is introducing a vest containing a frontal “stealth compartment” that hides the wearer’s hand secretly holding a gun. Under Armor’s appeal to the toting crowd is that the company’s signature moisture-wicking fabric prevents rust. (The New York Times) DRIVER’S ED DROPOUT - After crashing into a utility pole in Mercer County, Fla., Janelle Schwieterman, 17, was uninjured and returned to her home to get another vehicle. As she pulled out of her driveway, she drove into the path of a tractor-trailer and was hospitalized with critical injuries. (Miami’s WMIA-FM)

n the early fall of 1999, when I was 12, my dad picked me up from school on a Friday afternoon. Hurricane Floyd was still spinning itself dry somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean and had left a high-pressure system of brilliantly clear skies and autumn air in its wake—which was good, because we had plans. We were headed to the Adirondacks, to Old Forge, N.Y., to the South Branch of the Moose River. My dad had learned to fly fish there 40 years before. We—my dad, mom and I—returned every August,

I

but this trip with my dad was different: It wasn’t August, and it was the first of many trips without my mom. A fishing trip. It was also the first time I read A River Runs Through It, Norman Maclean’s autobiographical novella about fly fishing and family. The story, published in 1976, is about Maclean’s family during the summer of 1937, his last summer fishing with his younger brother, Paul. It all takes place before, during or after a fishing trip, and Norman’s prose on the subject is treasured by fly fishermen: “Poets talk

about spots of time,” he writes, “but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment.” And, “Something within the fisherman tries to make fishing into a world perfect and apart. ... Many of us probably would be better fishermen if we did not spend so much time watching and waiting for the world to become perfect.” Over three nights and days in the Adirondacks, I finished the story. It was the first time I’d ever heard of Missoula or the Blackfoot River or read sentences I knew were beautiful and true and weren’t for 12-

year-olds. It was the first time I’d felt romantic. In high school, I read the story again and again. By junior year, I’d decided I wanted to be a fishing guide and that someday I’d like to write about fishing, like Norman Maclean. When it came time for college, I applied to only one school. I’ve been guiding fishing trips in western Montana for a few years now, and of my prowess I can only say that I am busier and better than when I started. I row people down the Blackfoot often, through the canyon Norman and Paul fished in the summer of 1937. Usually my

guests ask about the story, and if they don’t, and especially if we aren’t catching anything, I tell them about it. I tell them about the Presbyterian church where Maclean’s father was a pastor and which still stands on Sixth Street. I tell them that once I got my hair cut by a guy who never flips his “Closed” sign and who claimed to have cut Maclean’s hair. I tell them what they already knew or had at least hoped when they planned their vacation: that A River is a strand in Missoula’s cultural DNA. That the plaque memorializing Maclean in front of the First Presbyterian Church was not just put up by people who know the book, but by people who knew the Macleans. What I don’t tell them is that I haven’t read the story in years. The first time I became aware of just how removed I’d become from A River, I was back east, at a college lacrosse game, watching a childhood friend play. This was in Massachusetts, where lacrosse is a thing, and I sat in the stands with my mom and my friend’s family. My friend’s grandfather, Dick, is the sort of blueblooded, bullish WASP who believes playing lacrosse and going to Harvard are elemental. He crawled over a few rows of stands to give my mom a physically robust but emotionally flaccid hug and said, “How are you, Mo?” He was trying to sound sincere, because he knew that my mom knew that he knew her health was bad. Then he shook my hand vigorously, and said my name, “Jamie,” like I’d gone 21 years without one and he had just solved the problem. “How is it out there in … Wyoming? Just like A River Runs Through It?” I wanted to cold cock him and make him bleed on his polo. After the game, on the way back to my parents’ house, I bludgeoned the subject with my mom. She agreed that Dick could be condescending, but she submitted that maybe he didn’t mean anything by the comment. Still, I stewed. He’d invaded something I’d once held sacred, something he surely didn’t understand. I didn’t either.

basically grew up an only child. Occasionally one of my half-sisters would come and stay for a while, and my

I

cousin lived in the guest room for a bit, but our nucleus was made of three, though we never acted that way. My relationship with both my parents was good but separate. We never ate meals or saw movies together. It was rare for the three of us to ride in a car together. Even on those family vacations to the Adirondacks, my time was mostly divided between fishing with my dad and trips into town or to the beach with my mom. This isn’t evidence of a tortured childhood. If anything, I was privileged, lucky for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is that I felt loved and safe. But it was always my dad over here, my mom over there.

My dad was raised by a poet-activist mother and a venture capitalist father. He went to Yale, where his father went and where many of the buildings were designed by his grandfather. He started his own architecture firm in New York City, and made a name for himself designing schools and public libraries and YMCAs. He is rational and articulate and seems to know something about everything. When we moved to the suburbs, he made impossibly smooth wooden bowls on a lathe in the garage and gave them to friends for Christmas. Everyone likes my dad. My mom comes from a different world. She’s from a working-class town

on Long Island, the daughter of a chemistry-teacher father who drank too much and a librarian mom who never paid enough attention. When she was young, she decided she wanted to be an artist, and after high school, she left home to study art at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania. Then she moved to New York and got a job as a receptionist at an architecture firm, where she married the boss. When I was young, my mom made art steadily. She worked in colored pencil, and I remember the blue armchair

she propped her drawing board over, the hours and hours she spent hunched over her work, the way she sat up straight and tilted her head to better see what she had done. She’s an instant friend to anyone. She laughs at her own clumsiness. Like her art, she is chromatic, but some of her colors are dark. She’s struggled with chronic kidney disease and pancreatitis for decades, and, recently, was diagnosed with bladder and urethral cancer, all of which intermittently land her in the hospital. When I was young, my mom was a complication I didn’t understand. My dad was simpler to be around. He coached

my Little League team. He always wanted me to help him in the garden. He rarely got mad. He never seemed unhappy. When I was 12, a few months after my first fishing trip, my dad and I left my mom in the ICU at New York Presbyterian to visit a fishing store on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She’d gone in to have a specialist repair a hole in her kidney. The surgery failed, and she lost so much blood the doctors wondered if she would recover. It was cold in the city, and frigid wind gusted up the avenues and blew plastic bags into the sky. I can’t remember much about the hospital: the beeping and sighing of machines,

the way she looked threaded with tubes, the terrible exhaustion that must’ve been in her eyes and how it all made my 12year-old self feel. But I do remember leaving the hospital with my dad in search of a tackle shop we’d found in the Yellow Pages. It was downtown, a few blocks from the East River. It had high ceilings and poorly lit aisles of tallstacked fishing tackle. There was a man behind the counter who looked like he probably spoke with an accent. I remember this clearly: the burbling of a waterfilter keeping the bait alive. After that year, my dad took me on an annual fishing trip. We caught brook trout in Maine. In the Yucatán, I landed a

bonefish, tarpon and permit in one day, which in the fly fishing world is called a Grand Slam and means something. We went to Belize, where we saw baby manta rays swimming in shallow, clear water. In Kamchatka, I waded across a wide riffle with a brown bear who fished for salmon with his nose in the water. By the time I decided on the University of Montana, I’d abandoned all other hopes for my future. I didn’t want to play baseball or become an architect. I had already been to a bucket list of fishing destinations and felt there would be no other way to live. It wasn’t just about catching fish; it was about the going, about the time spent and about the idea. Fly fishing offered the opportunity to know about some-

drunkenness on the list of bad moods in which to get a tattoo. But I got it and I live with it, a reminder of a time when I understood fly fishing to be more important than anything else. While I was in England, thinking about fishing, my parent’s marriage was falling apart. I’ll never know what they kept from me as a child—what they said with their eyes, with their bodies when I watched television in the next room. I was too young to be told, and maybe I’m still too young to realize, but the trip to New York Presbyterian was an act change in my family’s narrative. Two years later, I would leave home for boarding school. My dad and I began taking our annual fishing trips. My mom lost a kidney. We stopped

weekends. My mom spent most of her time alone, in bed, sometimes sick from her kidney and on dialysis, sometimes sick from her pancreatitis, sometimes sick from the infection in her urinary tract. She was always too sick to draw. But what made her depressed, what made her scream into the phone and cry and wail and slam doors and collapse in a heap on the floor, was her husband in his apartment in Connecticut and her son so far away in Montana. After the divorce, I talked to her daily, sometimes several times a day, and often, she was halfway incoherent. She would tell me that no one loved her. Sometimes that included me because I was selfish and inconsiderate and

not answer. Finally, my cousin was able to hack into her email and find the hotel she was hiding in. She said she was sorry to make everyone worry. She told me I couldn’t understand.

And being an expert feels good. I spent half of my senior year of high school near Stratford, England. I was there to study Shakespeare, but mostly I felt lonely and lost and wondered why I’d gone. I wanted to go fishing, but in England, as in most of Europe, fishing is a good deal more complicated than

buying a license and finding a stretch of public water. I never made it happen, but I spent my entire trip trying, and just the trying made my stay better. One day, I got the word “Angler” tattooed on my back in a seedy Camden tattoo shop. Aesthetically, it’s a regrettable ink job. It turns out teen angst is next to

going on family trips to the Adirondacks. I saw less and less of them. I wonder now how much they saw of one another. My dad left my mom a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2009. She called to tell me. Then he called. When this hap-

pened, my mom lived in a big house on a narrow street in Massachusetts. My dad spent weekdays at his architecture firm outside of New York, living in an apartment complex. He joined my mom most

thought she was uneducated and dumb. She said I was too much like my dad. A month after my dad left her, I flew back to New York to spend Christmas with her family on Long Island. A few days before I arrived, my mom disappeared.

My uncle called the police. She wouldn’t answer her phone. No one could find her. I don’t know how many times I called her. We all called her, helpless because that’s all we could do, and all she had to do was

and gambler. He owes money to the sort of people who don’t fly fish. As the story unfolds, Paul’s problems consume Norman, who feels helpless to help his brother. Toward the end of the story, Norman Sr. asks Norman about Paul. He tells Norman, “You are too young to help anybody and I am too old. By help I don’t mean a courtesy. … Help is giving part of yourself to somebody who comes to accept it willingly and needs it

badly. So it is that we can seldom help anybody.” A few weeks after her disappearance, my mom called my dad and told him she was going to kill herself. She was alone in the big house in Newburyport. My dad was at his apartment. He called the police. She could see the neighbors watching from their windows, she said,


as the cops restrained her and put her in the back of a patrol car. She was admitted to a Boston-area hospital, where she was kept for a few days. I don’t think my mom is suicidal. Someone told me once that suicidal people don’t say they are going to kill themselves, because if you are willing to make such a claim, you are really pleading for help. For a time, I staved off the guilt of being so far away from her with daily phone calls and a general commitment to being there for her. I listened to her rage and wither and rage over the phone. Her anger was aimed at my dad, sometimes at me. Conversations with her were manic; rational and constructive, then desperate. She didn’t just miss my dad; it’s that she was helpless to stop the upheaval. Nothing made sense to her. She didn’t make sense to me. I didn’t know how to help her, and in any compassionate sense of the word, I stopped wanting to. A piece of me wanted her suffering to stop only so my suffering could stop. After a day on the river, I’d check my voicemail with bated breath, feeling relieved if none of the messages were from her. I questioned my love for her, whether the love a son is supposed to feel for his mother is no more cosmic or intrinsic than a love forged by years of proximity, and if that love isn’t as shakable as any other. My dad already had a new girlfriend. I don’t know when they started dating, but I’ve speculated and I've concluded that I don’t care, that I can’t care. What did matter is that in the months following his departure from my mom’s life, absurdly, unbelievably, he seemed happy. And so, when my mom needed me most and I had nothing to offer, my dad didn’t need me at all. During the worst of the divorce, when my mom was somewhere near the bottom, my dad would call to check in. “I know this is hard for you, Jamie,” he’d say, “and if you ever want to talk, it’s important we talk.” “I know, thanks” was all I ever mustered. I didn’t think his offer was disingenuous, but usually I felt too frustrated to say anything at all. It was easier to nod and say thanks and agree that this was all very hard and that someday it would get better. When it came time to move out of her house, the packing was left to my mom and a team of movers. My dad went skiing in Colorado. I was in Missoula, studying creative writing and making plans for my next river trip. I called him and asked why he thought it was okay to be on vacation while my mom was packing up their defunct lives. Until then, he had been the voice of reason and calmness against her wild outbursts, but now he seemed as selfish and inconsiderate as my mom said he was—and as I felt I was being. For the first time in my life, I questioned his actions. He told me there were some things he didn’t have to explain.

y dad visits Missoula every fall now for a few days of fishing after most of the tourists are gone. Last year, we spent an afternoon on the lower Clark Fork casting blue-winged olive imitations to rising trout. We ate fried chicken and threw the bones in the water. We took turns casting. The fish were everywhere and it felt good to show him how to catch them. My parents don’t speak to one another much anymore. If they do, it’s about money or insurance, and usually that doesn’t go well. But I speak to each of them regularly. My mom seems to be feeling better, drawing and laughing and making friends as easily as she used to. My dad is happy and busy with work and his girlfriend. When I think about what I could have done differently—what I should be doing dif-

M

ferently—to help, to be a better son—I know I should have talked more: to friends, to my half-sister, to other family members. I would have been better off if I’d been able to say things, if I’d taken my dad up on his offer to talk. But I didn’t, because the problem with my dad’s offer wasn’t his sincerity or my willingness to accept it. It was the wrong offer. I never wanted to talk. I just wanted him to do the one thing he always seemed too good to do: apologize. A month ago, I re-read A River. It was powerful for the memories it stirred from the mud: the sound of my mom’s voice sweetly quavering when she called to say she was being left; the smirk on my dad’s face when he first donned a Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop hat; the flood waters their 25-year marriage had created at its end. And I remember Dick in his neat polo shirt invoking A River while he watched his grandson play lacrosse. Maclean was 74 when A River was published. If he’d been at that lacrosse game, if he’d shook hands with Dick and listened to our exchange, I wonder what he would have thought. I wonder what

he would have made of my frustration, my confused defense of his work. Would he have been able to tell by the redness creeping into my cheeks that my understanding was no deeper than Dick’s? Once I read the grandest and truest story about fly fishing, a story that articulated my own vague beliefs and truisms, so that fly fishing became an act that could transcend everything. Despite his demons, Paul Maclean was forgiven with a fly rod in his hand: “Once he quit wobbling,” Norman writes, “he shook himself duck-dog fashion, with his feet spread apart, his body lowered and his head flopping. Then he steadied himself and began to cast and the whole world turned to water. … The images of himself and his like kept disappearing into the rising vapors of the river, which continually circled to the tops of

the cliffs where, after becoming a wreath in the wind, they became rays of light.” But that’s no longer the whole story. It’s the moments between the moments— the moments not for 12 year-olds—when A River turns from a pastoral ode to fly fishing into an elegy for family. Now, 13 years after first reading it, I’m a member of a very different family and I’ve come to know that there are some pieces that can’t be picked up. Nothing—not fly fishing or rays of sunlight caught in falling drops of water—can transcend the pain of helplessness. Eventually, Paul’s vices get the best of him and he’s beaten to death with the butt of a revolver. His murder creates a rift between Norman and his parents that is bridgeable, but just barely; it cannot be repaired. They talk about Paul’s death tangentially. They talk about Paul selectively. The book’s final dialogue is set years after Paul’s death, when Norman Sr. says to his son, “You like to tell true stories, don’t you?” “Yes,” Norman says.

“Then he asked, ‘After you have finished your true stories sometime, why don’t you make up a story and the people to go with it? “‘Only then will you understand what happened and why. “‘It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us.’”

hen I was 12, on that first fishing trip on the South Branch of the Moose, the fishing was bad. What Hurricane Floyd had deposited could still be seen in the swollen-brown brooks and rivers of Upstate New York. The South Branch was

W

high and cold and mostly unrecognizable from the river I swam every August. We fished for two days. I didn’t have waders yet and shivered most of the weekend, though I was too excited to care. The skies stayed intensely clear, the sort of crystalline weather that settles on the back end of a storm and reaffirms life. I didn’t catch a fish, but I tried ceaselessly. I tried because I didn’t know enough to know that the river was too high and fast. I didn’t know enough to search for a calm backwater. I didn’t know enough to know that trying was futile. In the weekend’s last moments, my father caught a 14-inch brook trout. I remember standing on a jeep-sized boulder with him as he cast into the pool below. The fish ate a muddler minnow, which was one of the three flies I knew existed. He stood with arms raised to keep the line taught. The fish thumped desperately against his rod, the white edges of its fins glowing underwater. editor@missoulanews.com

side ever since, in the autumn of even-numbered years, separated only by a short section of blacktop between adjacent buildings. In contrast to the Salone’s decadence, Terra Madre is all business. Housed in the building that once held Turin’s Olympic ice rink, it’s furnished with little more than meeting room dividers, chairs and translation headsets. People of myriad races—many in traditional dress—gather in groups, making plans and sharing information. I’ve attended twice, and it has the feeling of a college campus during finals week, buzzing with the sheer volume of information being absorbed. People are sleep-deprived, often catching naps on the patch of grass out the side door. Sid Ali Mohammed, a longtime Somali farmer, came to Terra Madre in 2010 and learned of Slow Food’s A Thousand Gardens in Africa program. He returned home on a mission and enlisted his protégé, Mudane, a recent graduate of agriculture school, to help him create slow-food gardens in Somalia. In a recent phone conversation, Slow Food USA president Josh Viertel told me the Thousand

Gardens project began in Kenya, as a reaction to the prevailing model of foreign development. “Kenya has been the recipient of the most pressure around starting what they call ‘a new green revolution in Africa,’ which is really about importing debt, genetically modified foods, fertilizers and pesticides. Slow Food leaders in Africa said, ‘There’s a better way to do this, and we want to build a thousand gardens in Africa to prove that Africa doesn’t need an industrialized, export-oriented agriculture to feed itself.’” With support from Slow Food USA and Slow Food International, an African gardens handbook was created, with input from farmers and elders across the continent. Its purpose is to help Africans develop gardens for home, school and community use that conform to the core Slow Food principles of “good, clean and fair” food. “Rather than saying you should plant this variety and water this way,” Viertel says, “the handbook talks about the importance of traditional crops that are adapted to place, and the importance of biodiversity and the culture and food traditions of the community. “Our expertise is in convening and finding ways for knowledge to come to the surface. We’re handson in creating an environment where folks find the expertise they have in their own traditions.” Slow Food USA and Slow Food International are jointly raising $1,300 for each participating garden. To date, the Thousand Gardens project is about halfway to its goal. Viertel says that once they get there, “that will be just the beginning.” Those thousand gardens, he says, will create an impetus to plant “millions” of gardens and lead to a different way of addressing global food security. The rains have been decent in Somalia this year, and the gardens have been productive. The 178 community members that tend them have been rewarded with squash, beans, greens, okra, tomatoes and onions, among many other fruits and vegetables. This being an even-numbered year, the Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre will again co-convene in Turin, from October 25 to 29. Sid Ali Mohammed will be back at Terra Madre, this time with Mudane at his side. They’ll be sharing what they’ve accomplished in Somalia in the previous two years, and comparing notes with farmers elsewhere in Africa. And maybe, if there’s time, they’ll sneak off to Salone del Gusto and sample some prosciutto.

Somalia is a tough place to build a community garden. Between drought, warlords, a near absence of infrastructure and a prevailing mood of powerlessness, it takes commitment and, ideally, some help. Sid Ali Mohammed, 65, and Mohamed Abdukadir “Mudane” Hassan, 26, have both. They’ve managed to build 15 community and family gardens in Somalia as part of the nonprofit Slow Food International's A Thousand Gardens in Africa project. But it hasn’t been easy. “Our region is controlled by the terrorists AlShabaab,” the two farmers explained to me via email. “We have lacked central government since 1991. Everything is collapsed and destroyed.” Gatherings are frowned upon, severely, by AlShabaab, which makes growing food cooperatively problematic. But so far, the farmers have not been harassed. In December 2011, with several gardens already up and running, Sid Ali and Mudane formed a Somali Slow Food chapter, or convivia. Their first gathering was akin to a summit meeting for leaders of the various nascent gardens. Information was exchanged based on experiences in the various gardens, and roles were assigned in service of future goals. Photos of the meeting show a group of wary-eyed men in worn clothes, sitting apart from a group of women, their stoic faces surrounded by hijab. “You can’t stand with female in the public areas, there is penalty always,” they wrote. But on the farm, when a well is being dug or a melon is busted open, mixing can happen. The slow-food movement began as a protest against the construction of a McDonald’s at the Spanish Steps in Rome, in 1986. The protest, and values behind it, resonated and spread quickly, with convivium forming in many countries, initially in the developed world. Slow food quickly came to represent many things in many places, but the various tribes were united in their pursuit of deep pleasure from good food and a tendency to think about it. A lot. As the movement took on a life of its own, the original protest’s organizer, journalist Carlo Petrini, wrote books and essays in flowery prose that explored the concept of slow food, including its political, moral, intellectual and ecological implications. The term is meant symbolize an unhurried life that begins at the table. It’s a playful way of way of saying “no” to fast food and all it stands for. In 1994, slow-food devotees from around the

world began meeting every two years in Turin, a city in northern Italy, near Petrini’s hometown of Bra. The gathering became known as the Salone del Gusto, or “Hall of Tastes,” and became an increasingly commercialized destination for epicurean overload. One could spend hours comparing 30-year-aged balsamic vinegars and days gorging on prosciutto or smoked pig face, or pass a timeless moment contemplating a poached egg from a duck raised on goat milk. Beginning in 2004, the biennial Salone was joined by Terra Madre, an international gathering of farmers and food activists. These two expressions of slow food’s split personality have appeared side by

What’s with the Christmas theme: Bad Santa was late—roughly five months late, Lee says. When Bayern started the batch last fall, the brew crew intended to release it sometime over the Christmas holiday. Taproom regulars spent months begging for it. Lee explains this is Bayern’s first attempt at an eisbock and that the “icing” process took much longer than expected. They ended up with an ice-smooth bock served ice-cold, with an alcohol content somewhere above their doppel. “We almost called it Bad Easter Bunny,” he says.

SPOTLIGHT freedom rock Ramshackle Glory is as the band puts it, “punk with all the wrong instruments.” It sounds like getting drunk for the very first time and having profound insight into your life, the effin' government and how music should sound. Your friends show up and you'll all sway around until you pass out with banjo picking and accordion riffs ringing in your ears along with catchy one-liners like “If freedom means doing what I want, Well, don't I gotta want somethin'?” That very first hangover is just the feeling of you aching for more, so hit repeat and do it all again. The Tucson, Ariz., seven-piece ensemble has all those lo-fi elements Western punk bands like the Taxpayers like to employ, with a trumpet and banjo

WHO: Ramshackle Glory WHEN: Mon., June 11, at 8 PM WHERE: Zoo City Apparel, 139 E. Main St. HOW MUCH: TBA

to boot. The vocals range from talking to yelling to sort of holding a tune, with a boyish innocence recently scarred by cynicism. It's kind of like a poppunk version of Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains, which makes sense, because lead songwriter Pat the Bunny fronted that band too. Ramshackle Glory will be touring across the country with their new album, Who are Your Friends Gonna Be? in all-ages venues and house shows and, if all else fails, probably a show out of the van. It's anarcho-punk at its simplest, with some folky flair. It should be loud, sweaty and littered with anarchist pamphlets. —Brooks Johnson

MOUNTAIN HIGH T he last time I was in a boat, I almost got my wife drowned. Nobody told us that the Smith River would reach peak volume the morning we set out in our canoe. Also, nobody told us not to bring enough blankets to cover a king-size bed, twice.

watching, partying and Downtown ToNight activities, the event also promotes river-enhancement projects and river awareness, with national advocacy groups such as American Whitewater and local groups such as Missoula’s Max Wave on hand to talk to curious folks about the status of our rivers.

Feelin’ groovy Baby & Bukowski bust out We Won’t Go Home Until Morning by Erika Fredrickson

In a small doorway in downtown Missoula, sheltered of music snobbery that surrounds Bon Iver … and we from windy weather, two 18-year-old girls play a mash-up were playing ‘Skinny Love,’ a song that lots of people of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Cecilia” and “Me and Julio Down really know, and so I was really nervous that I was By the Schoolyard.” It’s First Friday and a small crowd has going to mess it up,” says Krebsbach. “But then, of gathered to watch them. Kaylen Krebsbach is rocking in course, I did mess it up about halfway through. I stummotion as she strums the guitar and Mari Wolverton exu- bled. I was really nervous.” In 2012, they played First Night Star again with berantly beats a big drum. In such little space, they emit endless energy. This is the duo’s natural habitat: an inti- their Simon & Garfunkel mash-up. Since then, nerves mate audience in the open air. When they get to the “Oh- haven’t been much of an issue. The album’s modest origins makes their current oh oh oh!” part of “Cecilia,” they lift their faces toward the success all the more sweet. sky like wolves howling. The duo, who call themselves Baby & Bukowski, have been busking the Missoula streets for two years, though they just graduated from high school. They released an album of originals on May 28 called We Won’t Go Home Until Morning, a collection of striking folk songs. “If You See This Ghost” started in rotation on 103.3 The Trail just a few weeks ago. At their CD release party last week, they sold out of their 300 albums—a split with another band, Comatose Smile. Several days ago, the album debuted at #4 on two Amazon charts—Contemporary Folk and Easy Listening—alongside Frank Sinatra and topping The Eagles. Wolverton, a percussionist, grew up in a musical family. “My family sings ‘Happy Birthday’ and it’s like an eightpart harmony,” she says. “My head exploded a little bit the first time I heard it,” adds Krebsbach. “‘Happy Birthday’ is one of those songs that absolutely no one can sing well, but you hear the Wolverton family sing it and you’re like [clapping], standing ovation.” Krebsbach got her guitar from her brother, who gave it to her before he was deployed Baby & Bukowski are Kaylen Krebsbach and Mari Wolverton. to Afghanistan. She decided it We Won’t Go Home Until Morning was made in a was important to learn to play. The band started in 2010, when the duo attended makeshift studio at Big Sky High School. Comatose an Edward Sharpe concert as acquaintances and came Smile—an equally talented young band—had already recorded their album, Townsend, MT, as part of one out of the show “thick as thieves,” Krebsbach says. “One day I said, ‘Hey, I have my guitar, do you student’s senior project through the Music Recording want to go down to the market and play for a little bit, and Production Program, which is part of the school’s see if we can make some money?’ We went down there Flagship Program. They were looking for another and made, what, $12? We didn’t even know any songs; group to record, and Baby & Bukowski was their pick. we were just messing around. But we fell in love with The resulting double package is called Trains and it and started doing it every weekend. Last year we Tunnels (Comatose Smile has a song called “The Train” played inside the market and we got kicked out and Baby & Bukowski has a song called “Tunnels”). “We recorded ‘If You See This Ghost’ with a single because we were causing congestion.” They played Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” at First Night condenser microphone, with the girls gathered around Star 2011—an “American Idol-style” contest for young it and an old truck brake weighting down the mic stand musicians held at the Wilma. “There’s a certain cloud so it wouldn’t tip over,” says Flagship coordinator Scott

Mathews. “It was kind of like how I imagine bluegrass records were made many years ago. It totally speaks to the talent and chemistry of the group that they could thrive in that kind of setup.” We Won’t Go Home Until Morning showcases the duo’s exquisite vocals: Wolverton’s are dreamy and Krebsbach’s a little saucy, and their harmonizing is a sweet balance of the two. The lyrics are sharply rendered for anyone, let alone two 18-year-olds who’ve just begun their writing careers. “If You See This Ghost” is a kind of girl-power song, but not in any sort of cliché way you’ve heard before. “That song I wrote as an homage to being a feminist,” says Wolverton. “It’s about girls who don’t think they’re good enough, who are constantly regretting things they do in their lives.” Lines like “She carries a love note in her back pocket / Always afraid someone is going to take it away” and “The hero don’t come until act two,” show keen observation for subtle pain and literary tragedy. (Their band name also reveals their sharpness: a tribute to Charles Bukowski’s love for starting his poems with “baby.”) “Trouble” was written on a ukulele at a bowling alley while the duo was acting as designated drivers for Wolverton’s dad and uncle, who were drinking and bowling. They named the album after a needlecraft hoop Krebsbach found at a thrift store—a scene of a tree, two white owls and a moon with a face, with the words “We won’t go home until morning” embroidered on it. They didn’t write the actual title track until the night before they recorded the album. “We could never come up with anything,” says Krebsbach. “Everything we played didn’t feel right. We sat Photo by Chad Harder down in [Wolverton’s] room and she was playing some chords and I said, ‘That’s it. That is it!’” Their love for Simon & Garfunkel is palpable. Besides the mash-up, you can hear the upbeat, stompand-jangle folk sound in their originals, too. Krebsbach says her favorite line she’s written so far is off of “Trouble,” and it goes, “You’re the Garfunkel to my Simon / And I promise I’m not lyin’ when I say I like— / I like—the sound of your voice. / You make me feel groo-vy!” “Simon & Garfunkel are our boys,” says Krebsbach. Baby & Bukowski plays Saturday, June 9, at Caras Park for Indy Fest, which runs from 2-10 PM. Free admission. efredrickson@missoulanews.com

Schwarz Karst takes a new look at old relics by Skylar Browning

At first glance, “Dodge City Sunset” by Barb Schwarz Karst looks like classic abstract expressionism. The four small canvases are bracketed together and dominated by swaths of reds, oranges and yellows. The right side is interrupted by a single vertical streak of dark blue. The left side loses the color to uniform lines of metallic gray. It’s just a gorgeous jumble of brush strokes until all four canvases are considered as a whole and the piece reveals itself as something more familiar.

“Dodge City Sunset”

Upon closer inspection, it’s an old Dodge truck. Clear as day. The dark blue streak separates the side panel from the curve of the hood. The metallic lines are the grill. The yellows and oranges must be rust set against the old rig’s once fire engine-red exterior. It’s obvious now: a cropped, close-up view of a truck, as seen through the eyes of an artist. But no. Not so fast. Schwarz Karst, the artist, sees something completely different. As she stands in front of the piece, just one from the latest installment of her long-running Montana Rust Belt: Abandoned Industries series, she explains how she no longer sees a truck. It’s a person. “All of these paintings have human aspects,” she says. “I think of this one as a profile or a mug shot— almost like a ‘Wanted’ poster.” She points to the eye, which otherwise looks like a turn signal. The grill is like teeth, “or the snarl,” as she puts it. An open cavity across the paneling is the jaw line. For her, this heap of junk is more than a bunch of rusted-out parts—it’s a living part of history. “When I look at industrial equipment or industrial paintings, they always show them as very grayedout or cold and steely,” says Schwarz Karst. “I really feel, to me, it should be a tribute to the people that worked these machines. It’s like when someone passes away, you remember them with fondness and not the dank, horrible memory of the death itself.” Looking through Schwarz Karst’s series is like a game of hide-and-seek. Of the 11 new Rust Belt pieces

she’s unveiling at Whitefish’s Jest Gallery on June 7, most are based on classic rigs she photographed in an Arlee junkyard or old boxcars from the tracks in Missoula. Figuring out which is which—and what part— is only half the challenge. Spend enough time and you’ll notice other subtle motifs inside each painting, like Montana vistas, water and, yes, people. “These dying industries were once the backbone of where we live,” she says. “I think they lend themselves to more of a story.” Schwarz Karst started her Rust Belt series after becoming enamored of her nephew’s photograph of an old Allis-Chalmers bean-picker. The first paintings were first shown in 2008 and, to meet demand, subsequent exhibits went up in both Missoula and Whitefish. While her work has been on display in New York City and internationally, nothing compares to the reaction she receives for the Rust Belt relics. “During that first opening I had people coming in, telling me stories about their parents or their grandparents who used to work the mines in Butte or died of black lung,” she says. “It seemed to hit a real sensitive nerve with a lot of people.” Before turning her attention to painting full-time, Schwarz Karst focused on art education. She taught for 25 years in Havre and at Sentinel, Big Sky and Hellgate high schools, and she still talks proudly of her former students—one is art director at the Independent, another happened to win one of her paintings at a recent charity event. Six years ago, though, she decided to leave the classroom. “I think the only reason I retired is because I just wanted to paint so damn bad,” she says. Schwarz Karst now spends her time working in a studio inside her garage or, if weather permits, in her driveway. In that garage, behind her easel, art supplies and a wall full of finished Rust Belt paintings, it’s hard not to notice a parked 1963 Chevy Nova, brown with brown-patterned seats, in good condition. “I knew you’d notice that,” says Schwarz Karst. “It’s my husband’s. He’s very proud of it. But it’s not part of what I’m doing.” Of course it’s not. The Nova, in such decent shape, still looks like just a car.

Almost heaven Montana mystery peels back the façade by Michael Peck

“Calvin Teague walked out of Red Plain at four thirty one August afternoon carrying an old Boy Scout backpack to which he had strapped a flannel sleeping bag.” So begins Matt Pavelich’s moody sec-

The Other Shoe Matt Pavelich paperback, Counterpoint 320 pages, $16.95

ond novel, The Other Shoe, a brooding mystery as informed by darkly funny folk noir as it is by the habits of genuine Montanans. The Other Shoe deals with the death of Teague, who has somehow lost his eponymous shoe. After abandoning his vehicle, he is picked up by a chatty woman and driven to her home for a shower and his sudden murder. From there, the plot kicks in as investigators try to determine the specifics of Teague’s demise. But instead of a typical potboiler, Pavelich hones in on the emotionally fragile quartet of incredibly authentic Montanans who fuel his story: Karen Brusett, the woman who picks up the stranger; her kind-hearted husband, Henry Brusett (the main suspect); D.A. Hoot Meyers; and public

Missoula Independent Page 32 June 7– June 14, 2012

defender Giselle Meany. All have some deeply personal connection to the case. The Other Shoe is by no means a whodunnit. It's a why-they-dunnit. Tackling the biography of each individual in resplendent detail, Pavelich uncovers a Venn diagram of harrowing cause and effect, showing that evil and guilt should always be footnoted. Henry Brusett’s culpability is not really the crux here, any more than alcoholism is the theme of The Sun Also Rises. The real mystery is the one lurking in the past and in the façade of the everyday. Pavelich is dextrous with the convergence of the touching and the horrifying: The ambivalent marriage and weirdly affecting co-habitation of Henry and Karen, Hoot Meyers's and Henry’s Poe-esque acid trip and Giselle Meany’s struggle with her profession are immaculately molded into all-too-human proportions. One of the great strengths of The Other Shoe is its peeling away of small-town secrets to reveal the frail hopes of the people who reside there. And then, about three-quarters of the way through, The Other Shoe inexplicably grinds to a halt. Pavelich suddenly converts to structures of genre fiction, transforming his insanely insightful book into a soulless prison drama as Henry awaits his verdict and sinks into selfloathing. The author starts to focus far too much attention on Henry’s rambling cellmate, Leonard, and even when he does return to the others, it’s not with the same ferocious intimacy that made the first two hundred or so pages so compelling. Somewhere between the involving love story of Karen and Henry and the climactic courtroom scenes, Pavelich appears to have bored himself with his own novel, plodding into the last chapters like a man on a strict deadline. When Pavelich’s novel is good, it is an irregularly profound study of devotion and senseless murder, with a pitch-perfect ear for locals and local cadence. The Other Shoe is what happens when a startlingly first-rate writer lets a conventional plot interfere with an extraordinary story. The book starts with an understated premise, expands that premise with staggering psychological depth and culminates with a nostalgic echo of the beautiful crime saga it promised to become and did not become. arts@missoulanews.com

Feel all right Marley reminds you why Bob rules by Molly Laich

Bob Marley’s music has become such a ubiquitous thing—like a buzz in the background of a Texaco or the soundtrack to jokes about dread heads—that it can be easy to dismiss. It may take a dark theater and the melodic voices of Jamaicans telling you what life is worth to jog your memory of just how cool this music is. If you’ve ever loved reggae but have since decided you’re over it, or you’ve outgrown it, I suggest you go see Marley and let it back inside your head and your heart.

Before Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void) signed on to direct, the project was attached to Martin Scorsese and then Jonathan Demme. Bob’s most famous son, Ziggy Marley, has an executive producer credit. This is a story that wants to be told. Marley is an exhaustive history of Bob’s life in rural Jamaica, Kingston, the States, Africa and Germany, told through still and moving images, concert footage and interviews with close friends and family. A good music documentary knows how to dwell on the music without losing its audience. When Bob is onstage performing, Marley doesn’t do some BS MTVstyle fast cutaway. Jamaica is slow and reggae moves to its own, unhurried rhythm and so does this film. Regarding Bob Marley’s legacy, the ticket seller at the Wilma told me, “I was a little over-exposed as a kid,” and I can relate. My dad has taken me to Jamaica twice, and I’ve seen it firsthand. Bob in Jamaica is to Cobain in Seattle, times 100. Goats really do wander

the streets and poor children go without shoes. At one point in the late ’90s, all three of my mother’s children had dreadlocks. So I was surprised by how much from the film I didn’t know. There are so many rich details worth learning or, if you’ve just forgotten, worth remembering: that the Wailers started out looking like every other closecropped, suit-wearing pop group from the early ’60s. that Marley at one time worked for Chrysler in Delaware; that he was shy. Hell, I’d forgotten that he was half white. Marley was so influential in Jamaican politics that it’s unclear who was responsible for his attempted assassination; both sides may have benefited from his death. For even these big world events, the film favors a close-up perspective. It’s more interested in Marley’s humanity than his celebrity. Macdonald talks to his wife and girlfriends both. Rastafarianism isn’t always fair to women, and the film doesn’t shy away from the consequences of his free love. There’s a lot of footage of ordinary Jamaicans, close-up faces, kids and animals. These shots reminded me a little of the Soviet films of Sergei Eisenstein, only warm and in color. The images might seem incongruous, but in fact, they speak directly to the heart of the matter. What artist besides Marley is so inseparable from his home country and the people who live there? I loved this movie because it reminded me how much I love Bob Marley’s music, and I admired how the rhythm of the film was so in sync with the Marley rhythm of Jamaican life. When Marley speaks in voiceover about the vibrational energy of Trenchtown, I was happy to see the filmmakers unembarrassed to take seriously the idea that place can so affect the souls of its people. And yes, Marley would be great to get high to (but then, most films are). Fair warning: At two and a half hours, unless you’re smoking really good stuff, the buzz will have worn off and you’ll have to suffer through his funeral without a filter. Bob Marley died at just 36 years old, after a long battle with cancer, and, oh lord, Macdonald has not gone easy on us in chronicling this period. Just leave your ironic sense of detachment at the door. Give yourself permission to be moved by celebratory music, even though it’s born out of war, suffering and oppression. One love! It’s a real thing. arts@missoulanews.com

ATTILA THE HONEY I asked my boyfriend for his email password so I could look at a message he’d mentioned. He grabbed my laptop and said he’d log in and forward it to me. He is a good guy and has never given me reason to distrust him, but if you aren’t hiding anything, why would you care whether your girlfriend can read your email, Facebook messages, whatever? He says he feels that people should have a certain amount of privacy in a relationship and doesn’t believe in sharing his passwords. Really? Not even with the woman he’s been sleeping with for two years? —Suspicious Of course, there’s no place for waterboarding or other enhanced interrogation techniques in a healthy relationship, but after two years of having sex with a guy, you’d think you’d at least be allowed to have a spy drone follow him to the office. While some women trade sex for dinner, jewelry, and major appliances, all you expect is your boyfriend’s privacy. Privacy—controlling what information about yourself gets shared with others—is a fundamental right. Yet, I’m amazed by the amount of email I get, mainly from women, who think having regular sex with someone entitles them to roll back that person’s privacy to that of a convicted serial killer (save for the flashlight-assisted cavity searches). Like these other ladies, you seem to be confusing dating with rent-to-own. This man is your romantic partner, not your new washing machine. He gets to choose which hopes, dreams, fears, and tasteless jokes he shares with you; you don’t get to harvest his email, his organs, and his every thought. But, should you somehow bully his password out of him and start mowing through his messages, it’s like putting people on speakerphone without their knowledge. He needs to disclose the possibility of this to everyone with his email address: “When you write me, it’s as if you’ve written everyone I’ve slept with recently.” (Subject line: “I’m whipped.”) Keep in mind that you aren’t suspicious of him because you found a thong in his travel mug but because you feel entitled to loot his digital life and he refuses to let you. (Why don’t you just put truth serum on his salad?) A desire for privacy isn’t evidence of sneakiness. People show different sides of themselves to different people, and he’s likely to feel curtailed in who he is and what he writes if Big Girlfriend is always watching: “Um, you spelled ‘trough-licker’ wrong in that misogynistic

email to Jeff.” (Suddenly, NSFW—Not Safe For Work—has an alternate meaning: No Sex For Weeks.) You won’t make a man trustworthy by turning your relationship into a police state. The time to figure out whether somebody’s ethical is before you get into a committed relationship with him. If you can’t trust your boyfriend, why are you with him? If you can, accept that his information is his property, and leave him be when he closes the bathroom door to his mind. Relationships are actually richer when those in them have private lives, when they’re two people who come together to share a lot of things instead of two people who share absolutely everything—down to a single email address: JenniferNJason@WeAreNow OneBigBlob.com.

IT’S REIGNING MEN I’m 23, and I realized that I don’t know who I am. I just got out of a two-year relationship with a musician. I totally cleaved to his world—sold his CDs, promoted the band, started writing songs. But, it really wasn’t me, and “we” were all about him. Before him, I dated a Rolfer, and my world became all about “body alignment” and Pilates and whatever else he was preaching. I feel like I lose myself in a man and then get nothing back. —Disappearing When you’re between boyfriends, it’s got to be hard to know whether to spend the day picketing Wall Street or occupying a dressing room at Abercrombie. What happened, you started your search for self but then your feet got tired? You actually have to go out and answer the question “Who am I?”; you can’t just cheat off whomever you’re sleeping with. Consider doing as a guest on my radio show, therapist Dossie Easton, did. When she was in her 20s, she decided that she needed to find out who she was when she wasn’t “trying to be somebody’s old lady” and vowed to remain unpartnered (though not celibate) for five years. Maybe you don’t have to stay unpartnered for five years, as Dossie actually did, but you should keep fishing around for what you’re all about until you bring more to a relationship than a blank slate and a willingness to take notes.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny ARIES (March 21-April 19): If your destiny has gotten tweaked by bias or injustice, it’s a good time to rebel. If you are being manipulated by people who care for you—even if it’s allegedly for your own good—you now have the insight and power necessary to wriggle free of the bind. If you have been confused by the mixed messages you’re getting from your own unconscious mind, you should get to the bottom of the inner contradiction. And if you have been wavering in your commitment to your oaths, you’d better be intensely honest with yourself about why that’s happening. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Diamonds are symbols of elegant beauty, which is why they’re often used in jewelry. But 80 percent of the world’s diamonds have a more utilitarian function. Because they’re so hard and have such high thermal conductivity, they are used extensively as cutting, grinding, and polishing tools, and have several other industrial applications. Now let’s apply this 20/80 proportion to you, Taurus. Of your talents and abilities, no more than 20 percent need be on display. The rest is consumed in the diligent detail work that goes on in the background—the cutting, grinding, and polishing you do to make yourself as valuable as a diamond. In the coming week, this will be a good meditation for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The pain you will feel in the coming week will be in direct proportion to the love you suppress and withhold. So if you let your love flow as freely as a mountain spring in a rainstorm, you may not have to deal with any pain at all. What’s that you say? You claim that being strategic about how you express your affection gives you strength and protection? Maybe that’s true on other occasions, but it’s not applicable now. “Unconditional” and “uninhibited” are your words of power.

a

CANCER (June 21-July 22): What actions best embody the virtue of courage? Fighting on the battlefield as a soldier? Speaking out against corruption and injustice? Climbing a treacherous peak or riding a raft through rough river water? Certainly all those qualify. But French architect Fernand Pouillon had another perspective. He said, “Courage lies in being oneself, in showing complete independence, in loving what one loves, in discovering the deep roots of one’s feelings.” That’s exactly the nature of the bravery you are best able to draw on right now, Cancerian. So please do draw on it in abundance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In his book The Four Insights, author Alberto Villoldo tells the following story: “A traveler comes across two stonecutters. He asks the first, ‘What are you doing?’ and receives the reply, ‘Squaring the stone.’ He then walks over to the second stonecutter and asks, ‘What are you doing?’ and receives the reply, ‘I am building a cathedral.’ In other words, both men are performing the same task, but one of them is aware that he has the choice to be part of a greater dream.” By my astrological reckoning, Leo, it’s quite important for you to be like that second stonecutter in the months ahead. I suggest you start now to ensure that outcome.

c

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Harpo Marx was part of the famous Marx Brothers comedy team that made 13 movies. He was known as the silent one. While in his character’s persona, he never spoke, but only communicated through pantomime and by whistling, blowing a horn, or playing the harp. In real life, he could talk just fine. He traced the origin of his shtick to an early theatrical performance he had done. A review of the show said that he “performed beautiful pantomime which was ruined whenever he spoke.” So in other words, Harpo’s successful career was shaped in part by the inspiration he drew from a critic. I invite you to make a similar move, Virgo: Capitalize on some negative feedback or odd mirroring you’ve received.

d

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What is your relationship with cosmic jokes, Libra? Do you feel offended by the secrets they spill and the ignorance they expose and the slightly embarrassing truths they compel you to acknowledge? Or are you a vivacious lover of life who welcomes the way cosmic jokes expand your mind and help you lose your excessive self-importance and show you possible solutions you haven’t previously imagined? I hope you’re in the latter category, because sometime in the near future, fate has arranged for you to be in the vicinity of a divine comedy routine. I’m not kidding when I tell you that the harder and more frequently you laugh, the more you’ll learn.

e

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In addition to being an accomplished astrophysicist and philosopher, Arthur Eddington (1882-1944) possessed mad math skills. Legend has it that he was one of only three people on the planet who actually comprehended Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. That’s a small level of appreciation for such an important set of ideas, isn’t it? On the other hand, most people I know would be happy if there were as many as three humans in the world who truly understood them. In accordance with the astrological omens, I suggest you make that one of your projects in the next 12 months: to do whatever you can to ensure there are at least three people who have a detailed comprehension of and appreciation for who you really are.

f

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Yesterday the sun was shining at the same time it was raining, and my mind turned to you. Today I felt a surge of tenderness for a friend who has been making me angry, and again I thought of you. Tomorrow maybe I will sing sad songs when I’m cheerful, and go for a long walk when I’m feeling profoundly lazy. Those events, too, would remind me of you. Why? Because you’ve been experimenting with the magic of contradictions lately. You’ve been mixing and matching with abandon, going up and down at the same time, and exploring the pleasures of changing your mind. I’m even tempted to speculate that you’ve been increasing your ability to abide with paradox. Keep up the good work. I’m sure it’s a bit weird at times, but it’ll ultimately make you even smarter than you already are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be on the alert for valuable mistakes you could capitalize on. Keep scanning the peripheries for evidence that seems out of place; it might be useful. Do you see what I’m driving at, Capricorn? Accidental revelations could spark good ideas. Garbled communication might show you the way to desirable detours. Chance meetings might initiate conversations that will last a long time. Are you catching my drift? Follow any lead that seems witchy or itchy. Be ready to muscle your way in through doors that are suddenly open just a crack.

g

h

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An article in the Weekly World News reported on tourists who toast marshmallows while sitting on the rims of active volcanoes. As fun as this practice might be, however, it can expose those who do it to molten lava, suffocating ash, and showers of burning rocks. So I wouldn’t recommend it to you, Aquarius. But I do encourage you to try some equally boisterous but less hazardous adventures. The coming months will be prime time for you to get highly imaginative in your approach to exploration, amusement, and pushing beyond your previous limits. Why not get started now?

i

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to my reading of the astrological omens, you would be smart to get yourself a new fertility symbol. Not because I think you should encourage or seek out a literal pregnancy. Rather, I’d like to see you cultivate a more aggressively playful relationship with your creativity—energize it on deep unconscious levels so it will spill out into your daily routine and tincture everything you do. If you suspect my proposal has some merit, be on the lookout for a talisman, totem, or toy that fecundates your imagination.

For further information, contact Tom Zavitz, Office of Planning & Grants at 552-4983. If you have comments, please mail them to: City Clerk, 435 Ryman, Missoula, MT 59802. /s/ Martha L. Rehbein, CMC City Clerk MISSOULA COUNTY GOVERNMENT

FLOODPLAIN DEVELOPMENT PERMIT APPLICATION The Office of Planning & Grants has received a floodplain application from Dana Headapohl to work within the Bitterroot River floodplain. The project is located at 4740 South Third St in Missoula, MT in Section 26, Township 13N, Range 20W and includes the relocation of two structures from the floodway to the floodway fringe and construction of an open animal shelter. The full application is available for review in the Office of Planning and Grants in City Hall. Written comments from anyone interested in County floodplain permit application # 12-28 may be submitted prior to 5:00 p.m., June 29, 2012. Address comments to the Floodplain Administrator, Office of Planning & Grants, 435 Ryman, Missoula, MT 59802 or call 258-4841 for more information. MISSOULA COUNTY GOVERNMENT

COMBINED NOTICE FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT and NOTICE TO PUBLIC OF REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS (FONSI/NOI/RROF) City of Missoula Office of Planning & Grants 435 Ryman Missoula, MT 59802 406-258-3688 TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS: On or before June 25, 2012, the above-named City of Missoula will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on behalf of the Western Montana Mental Health Center for the release of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds provided under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended

(PL 93-383) for the construction of a 16-bed inpatient addiction treatment facility on the southwest corner at the intersection of California and Wyoming streets in Missoula. The project will use $420,000 of CDBG funding for the $2 million project. Finding of No Significant Impact It has been determined that such request for release of funds will not constitute an action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and accordingly the above-named City of Missoula has decided not to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL 91-190). The reasons for the decision not to prepare such Statement are as follows: The project site is within Missoula’s urban core and has been previously developed; it is currently an empty lot with no particular environmental or social value. Given this, the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. An Environmental Review Record documenting review of all project activities in respect to impacts on the environment has been made by the above-named City of Missoula. This Environmental Review Record is on file at the above address and is available for public examination and copying upon request between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Public Comments on Findings All interested agencies, groups and persons disagreeing with this decision are invited to submit written comments for consideration by the City of Missoula to the Office of Planning and Grants on or before June 23, 2012. All such comments so received will be considered prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. Release of Funds The City of Missoula certifies to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that John Adams in his capacity as Grants Administrator II consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows Western Montana Mental Health Center to use Program funds. Objections to the Release of Funds HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Missoula’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever

is later) only if they are made on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Missoula; (b) the (Responsible Entity) has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before the approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency, acting pursuant to 40 CFR part 1504, has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures of 24 CFR Part 58 and shall be addressed to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Region VIII Office, 8ADE, 1670 Broadway Street, Colorado 802024801. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period. /s/ John Adams Grants Administrator II MISSOULA COUNTY GOVERNMENT
