Signs That School is Back in Session at UM
The University of Montana campus — along with the rest of the Missoula community — has been pretty quiet for the last six weeks or so. UM students finally headed back to school Monday, as signified by the following observations.
Stuck in the Snow
After Missoula was hit with record snowfall this week, my car and I were not prepared for the road ahead. Fortunately, we live in a town with lots of people who are willing to lend a helping hand.
Big Sky Country Hits Big Milestone
Sometime in early January, our beloved home state finally surpassed the 1 million mark in the population category, leaving behind the lowly ranks of six-figure states such as Alaska, Wyoming and the Dakotas. But not everyone is happy about it.
Wasting Away in the Garden City
According to the Food Network, American food producers and distributors throw away thousands of pounds of food every day. But is this happening in Missoula too?
The Winter That Wasn’t
The last couple of weeks have felt more like a spring thaw than the dead of winter, which has Montanans everywhere wondering what gives.
Missoula UPS Drivers Take Pledge
More than 40 local UPS drivers pledged to abstain from texting while behind the wheel in support of our TXTING KILLS MONTANA-Arrive Alive Don't Text and Drive campaign.
KYSS-mas Kids Stop By
If there is one thing better than the feeling you get from helping less-fortunate children, it’s the feeling you get when you hear words of gratitude from the children that benefited from your generosity.
Few Complaints Over Tobacco Ban
Since enacting a campus-wide ban on tobacco products this past fall, UM officials have received few complaints over the policy.
Senate Race Heats Up
Montanans should have extra motivation to hit the polls in November, as the 2012 election cycle could be the most important one the state has seen in years.
A Spring Run in January
There's nothing like a dose of spring weather to get people thinking about exercise. Plenty of Missoulians took advantage of Tuesday's heat wave to get in a quality workout.
