    Senior Prom

    We re-post this now since the court date is close and will address some important issues for Montana and perhaps fishing access across the country. Click on over to CHI WULFF for some insights and details. ((Originally posted November 4, 2012.))

    HEADS UP Y'ALL
    Beware The Whisper
    marshall your indignation -- again
    THIS IS NOT ALFRED E. NEWMAN
    -------
    .. Now that the rich and infamous have gotten a toehold on restricting usage of the Madison River they are marshaling their forces in the ongoing Ruby River lawsuit.
    .. As noted by Ben Lamb, (LINK,) a pair of heavily muscled groups have just joined the fight to overturn Montana's stream access law.
    .. As you have probably forgotten, that lawsuit is spearheaded by James Cox Kennedy who likes to use public bridges as fence posts. You remember him. He's the media mogul that has poured millions of dollars into Grady College in Georgia. It's now his alter ego in the new media business, (LINK.) We wonder what he's done for the colleges in MONTANA.
    .. Talk about muddy waters! The two briefs, recently filed,  suggest that it's really private ownership and stewardship that enables our great fishing and hunting in this state, (LINK.)
    .. In addition to all the rich folks from out of state moving in to buy legislators we now have billionaires and rock stars telling us that they should own the public's resources for our own good.
    .. It's time to do some more homework and gear up for the next legislative session. Developers, Real Estate Agents & Brokers, and Land Speculators are watching very closely. With all the money flying into Montana it's not going to be easy - it never is.

    Shoot On Sight ?

    LEGISLATING DEATH
    Our Legislature Is Back In Session
    not just fish stupidity this time though

    -------
    .. The Montana Legislature is well known for introducing bills that grab hot button issues and turn them into seething debates, while polarizing it's members and our citizenry. They've done it again!
    .. Quick as a sprinter off the blocks, the property rights and agribusiness interests are manipulating their legislative puppets and introducing bills to strip Montana of it's heritage and wildlife.
    .. We don't need to belabor the point here. If you are interested in the fate of wild bison, (or elk, or trout, or deer, or any other wild native species,) you can read about it
     HERE.
    .. Suffice it to say; many of us have learned to live with these huge, hairy, hoary beasts. Bless their hearts.
    .. We're headed to the ice fishing social hour but thought that this should see the light of day as soon as possible. Ice hole report to follow.
