Treasures in Billings Trash? Think Twice Before Dumpster Diving

I like junk. Not like in a reality-show, hoarder fashion, but more like a weird appreciation for items that have been cast off by their owners. On trips to the Billings landfill or the Laurel Container Site, I'm always scanning the piles of old bicycles, barbeques and other odds-ends. "I can't believe someone is throwing that away!", I think to myself, resisting the urge to break the law and take some random piece of junk home. Taking stuff from the dump is illegal (for reasons I don't completely understand) plus I'm confident my spouse doesn't want me bringing another persons refuse home.

It’s Obvious Why I-90 Shouldn’t Have a Pedestrian Path (Opinion)

The reasons are obvious. The Billings Gazette is reporting that despite a push to get a lane for bicycles and pedestrians approved on the Lockwood bridge, the state ruled it out. The answer is and should be a loud NO. Trucks and cars don't mix with bikes and people. Keep in mind this is an Interstate highway. They don't even allow access roads or turnouts on these roads for obvious reasons. Bicycles are allowed to use every other type of road in the city. State highways, city streets, trails--everything. The interstate is used for massive transportation requirements for cars and trucks. High speed and high volume does not mix with recreation.

I’ve Lived in Montana Most of Life: Here’s Where I Got Lost

My daughter was all in on Father's Day this year. She told me that she would even get up early and go golfing with me, if that's what I wanted. It was completely up to me. Come Sunday morning I ran a couple of errands and did some laundry. And after giving it some thought, I decided we would go to the Montana Candy Emporium in Red Lodge via Cooney Reservoir. I wanted her to see those planes fill up with water to help fight the Robertson Draw fire. But by the time we got to Cooney, there was no activity. So I just kept going on the gravel. And going. And going.
