Missoula County Seeks EPA Grant for Asbestos

Missoula County plans on applying for a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Grant. The grant, known as the Brownsfields Multi-Purpose Pilot Grant is meant only for "community based organizations" and requires those organizations to conduct community notification before submitting a request. According to the E.P.A.'s frequently asked questions site, which you can read here, only one project per region will receive the grant and a total of $550,000 is possible for cleaning up the chosen site. The Missoula County request would be used to help clean up asbestos at the Missoula County Courthouse.

Help Stop Child Sex Abuse in Montana

Before American children reach the age of 18 one out of every four girls and one out of every six boys will be the victims of sexual assault. Montana is no exception to the problem of child sex abuse, in 2009 and 2010 local child advocacy centers helped over a thousand children. The saddest part of the story is that many cases are never brought to light, and that only 30% of assaults are reported to police. Learning how to detect the signs of sexual abuse and knowing the proper route for response is a fundamental skill. If you want to learn how to protect your children or the children who may be in your care, the UM School of Social Work along with the Montana Children’s Trust Fund, and the Montana Child Sexual Abuse Response Team (MCSART), are sponsoring a "Stop it Now" seminar in Missoula. Director of the Child Advocacy Center in Flathead County, Brett Kelso tells us a little bit about what the publi

The State of the Union: Three Tactics for the Coming Campaign

I just finished watching the State of the Union Speech and thought I would write a bit about what I heard. Obama employed three tactics in tonight's speech that I think he will continue to press as the campaign moves forward. First of all, he is beginning to try to appeal to the right in an effort to grab votes from the center. Specific examples of this are his opening and closing celebration of the death of Osama bin Laden, his calls for deregulation (milk is not oil was my favorite part of the speech), his push against Chinese trade violations, and his claims of opening up 75% of available offshore oil sources for drilling. The second tactic that he pressed is a more traditional populist appeal that pits the poor against the rich over the issue of "fairness."
