    Marti Liechty, Community News Service UM School of Journalism|Oct 25, 2018

    The controversy over ballot Initiative 186 seems to be about two competing visions for Montana’s future economy, and water quality underlies them both. The ballot measure, if passed, would amend the state’s 1971 Metal Mine Reclamation Act to provide for an additional $115,000 to $118,000 in annual revenue for Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality. The money would be used to analyze pollution cleanup plans in new mining permits. The initiative supported by the Yes for Responsible Mining coalition is backed by Montana Trout Unlim...

  • The secret of contentment

    Shane Kesterke, Elder, Mission Bible Fellowship|Oct 25, 2018

    There was an airline pilot flying over the Tennessee mountains and pointed out a lake to his copilot. “See that little lake?” he said. “When I was a kid I used to sit in a rowboat down there, fishing. Every time a plane would fly overhead, I’d look up and wish I was flying it. Now I look down and wish I was in a rowboat, fishing.” Contentment can be an elusive pursuit.

  • Collective Shadow

    Ken Silverstro PhD|Oct 25, 2018

    I described the shadow in previous articles but it is so relevant for our daily lives that it is important to present it again. This time let me introduce a few twists and begin with this quote from On the Abolition of All Political Parties by Simone Weil. "One recognizes that the partisan spirit makes people blind, makes them deaf to justice, pushes even decent men cruelly to persecute innocent targets." Although this quote is directed at political parties, it can apply to many other...
