Man Uses Raccoon To Bypass Breathalyzer Equipped Car
Most Montanans are smart enough not to drink and drive, but statewide the statistics are grim. Anytime we have a story involving a drunken driver injuring or killing someone, many residents speak up and demand the maximum punishment possible...
Please Stop Crying on TV
If I had my way, the FCC would fine networks for excessive crying. It's gotten out of hand. People cry on TV now at the drop of a hat. I mean, I'm not heartless, so I get that sometimes emotions can get out of control, but some of these shows just seem to coax gratuitous crying for no good…
My Ghostly Encounter and the Science That Explains It
As Halloween approaches, we will soon be inundated with ghostly images and supernatural stories. Personally, I am not a believer in ghosts. I would love to see one, but I am certain that will never happen.
There was, however, an event that happened to me when I was 16 that made me question my disbeli…
Firepower at the Flea Market
When I was a kid, I loved going to the flea market on the weekend. Seemingly endless tables of junk you just couldn't find in the stores. It's where I bought my first throwing star, nunchucks, and butterfly knife. For a 12-year-old, these are some highly sophisticated weapons...
My Almost-Mother-In-Law’s Battle With Telemarketers
It is rare that I get a telemarketing call these days, but for people who still use landlines, they are a frequent occurrence.

Why Are We Releasing Murderers After Only Four Years? [Opinion]
Two days ago, 32-year-old Mikel Knick walked away from the Alternatives pre-release center in the Heights. This is not the first time something like this has happened, but it has caused some people to ask the question: Why would a murderer and a kidnapper be in a halfway house after only serving fou…
Do You Support Clemency for Barry Beach?
Even though hundreds of people in Billings pass by the "Free Barry Beach" sign on Grand Avenue every day, there are plenty who don't know his story. Some people say that there is no way an innocent man would ever confess to a murder and refuse to delve any deeper than that...
This is the Most Popular Halloween Candy in the State of Montana
The website sumocoupon.com compiled some data last year to figure out which Halloween candy was the most popular in each state. The lack of Reese's Cups in any state makes me a bit skeptical, so I thought I would throw this out there just to see how many Montanans agree with this survey...
Is My Daughter Too Young for the Miranda Lambert Concert?
I'm debating as to whether or not I should take my almost 8-year-old to the Miranda Lambert concert on Friday. Her mother and I have VERY different tastes in music, and I am trying to send my daughter down the country path.
My kid loves music, but she hates loud noises...
Five Things I’ve Noticed About Turning 40
My eyesight is failing


A couple of years ago I went to the eye doctor to get my once-a-decade eye test out of the way. I had gone from my usual 20/10 vision down to 20/15. This was still good news to me. I can see from 20 feet what most people have to be at 15 to see...
