    More Montana Politics

    WHO? IN CONGRESS
    Who Is Paying ?
    who's money ?
    ..
    -------
    .. Now that Zinke has weedled his way into the national wrecking ball in Washington, D.C., folks from Montana have a chance to replace him back here in our special election.
    .. Perhaps we'll do it right this time. Of course we will have to fight with our memories. Do you remember the devious plan to block fishers from the East Gallatin River? For a refresher course check out this link.
    BRIGHT AND WARM
    .. On another front we note that the carpetbaggers are back with their piles of money to meddle with our children's welfare and education. The bi-partisan pre-kindergarten bill is being opposed by Americans For Prosperity. That's the bunch funded by the Koch brothers. They want to keep our kids as poorly educated as possible. Then they will likely elect more of their buddies like Zinke and Gianforte.  Don't believe it? Try this other link.
    .. Follow the progress of HB 593, "Revise Metal Mining Laws" - with a quick click here. Looks to be O.K. for now - but you never know!
    ..Our state is contemplating providing a $10,000,000.oo / year, low interest loan to Talen Energy of Colstrip, Montana. The idea is to lessen the economic impact to the town and to the Montana State Budget during the coming shutdown of the "old plant" in 2022. This is a bizarre plan to prop up a company that is losing $30,000,000.oo / year. Go figure - click away to read more.

    COULD IT BE ?
    .. The slicker is still wet and the drip is still dripping. We hit 55° F and had a bit of a breeze but the fishing has been tolerable. The catching has been better. Water is puddling on the top of the ice at Hebgen Reservoir.
    .. The estuary of the South Fork of the Madison River is open and the legal lake fishing there is just a few days away, Snowmobiles are still necessary. 
    .. We went and closed the winter season in Yellowstone National Park.
    YELLOW MITE
    .. Too warm for winter - could it be Spring? We'll see.
    .. Time for some breakfast and a cogitation about the day ahead. Fishing is still on the pencil list.
