Caught My Eye…

Congratulations – you’ve made it to Friday – now buckle your seatbelt for “Caught My Eye.”

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.

Everyone and everything is fair game.

Today I write about Ryan Zinke, Intelligent Discontent, Powder River Training Complex, Montana CBS & DirecTV, snow plowing, Ben Carson & plagiarism, term limits, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and much more.

Campaign 2014: The Wrap-Up

It’s Monday. I scooped snow this morning. It’s cold.

Unlike the local TV weather guy, I don’t get too excited over snow and bitterly cold weather. I really want to like the local TV weather guy, but he’s making it difficult.

There’s also sporadic Internet access possibly because there’s a power outage in some parts of Great Falls, Montana. I really want to like Charter Communications, too, but they are making it difficult.

Campaign 2014: Political Potpourri

Happy Monday folks – how about those Kansas City Royals? They swept the Los Angeles Angels to advance to the American League Championship Series (ALCS).

Today’s column is not about baseball – it deals with Legislative Referendum 126 here in Montana.  I also write about the Lewis/Zinke U.S. House debate on Saturday night, and I close out today’s piece by writing about the “team” of three wise men who penned a column in the Great Falls Tribune about “no teams.”
