Montana gains second US house seat.


For my fellow citizens of Big Sky Country, I see this as a blessing or a curse. Representation is wonderful if you’re represented. From my vantage point in Missoula, I feel overrun with people from other places...our home prices are insane, we have a labor shortage and wages are low in general. I worry about the influx of folks from places with politics far more conservative that what I’m used to in blue Missoula. I hope this is good news but in the current Daines/Gianforte environment, I am skeptical.

Where are you all with this news?

First Iris of spring: Beloved osprey returns to Missoula

As an inspiration to hardworking senior citizens everywhere, Iris the osprey is back in town and looking for love.

The photogenic fish hawk triggered her nest camera above Missoula College River Campus at 8:06:48 a.m. Wednesday. She migrated north from her wintering grounds — most likely 2,000 miles away along the Gulf of Mexico.

“She’s now the oldest known living osprey in the world,” said University of Montana biologist Erick Greene, who’s been studying osprey for decades.

“We put that platform up 14 years ago, and she was nesting on some power lines by the Missoula College for many years before that," Greene added. "Osprey don’t start breeding until they’re 4 or 5 years old. We estimate she’s probably about 24 years old.”

On a side note...Iris the osprey nests at the mouth of Hellgate Canyon on the east side of Missoula. Hellgate is known for the howling winds that come out the canyon. Iris is indeed a badass.

Montana thug governor tests positive for Covid.

I guess I should feel badly about this but I don’t.
