Welcome to March and “Sequestration Day 2013.” Do you feel different? I’ve heard that the Feds may cut down on the number of drones they have spying on us, and we will probably see fewer chemtrails in our skies…
If this is your first time visiting The Western Word, the “Caught My Eye” column is where I take a quick look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week – and I often throw in some sarcasm just to make you smile. So get ready to head into your weekend armed with knowledge and a smile.
Today I write about the racist joke, no free concerts, ninth DUI, Champ Edmunds, the fertilizer spill, wolf kills, Secretary of Defense votes, DUIs in Helena, Woodward, plus I dust off Jack’s Political Inbox and peek inside! There’s a lot more so read on…
Congratulations on making it to Thursday – the weekend is in sight so hang on! If this is your first time visiting The Western Word (TWW), “Thursday Numbers” is my weekly column where I take a look at the numbers mentioned in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes with a little sarcasm).
NOTICE: By reading this column you will probably gain a great deal of knowledge not found on other websites! You can use this information to impress your family, friends and co-workers, and it might even be life changing – so consider yourself warned…
This week I write about the Powerball drawing, embezzlement, unemployment, the Governor and e-Bay, sewage bills, days until the election, the Montana State Fair, Mick Jagger, beautiful people, skydiving, a big lobster, a big crocodile, Sandra Bullock, Miracle Treat Day, tax votes, and much more!
For the past several Thursdays, the staffers here at The Western Word (TWW) have come up with some numbers to let you know the pulse of America. This week the numbers are kind of depressing – so be prepared!
Today we take a look at food stamps, unemployment, Spenditol views, vacations, some polls, a supercommittee, a camp in Montana for rich people, a set list, and much more so read on! Continue reading →
For a couple hours on Tuesday night in Great Falls, Montana, REO Speedwagon took the crowd of 5000 away from their worries of unemployment, the national debt, war, and united the young and the old with old-fashioned ear-splitting rock and roll.
It was just a normal Tuesday night for REO – a sixteen song set list that had something for everyone from the 1973 song “Ridin’ the Storm Out” to the 1971 political song “Golden Country” – they’ve been doing these shows in one form or the other since 1967.
More importantly, this was a chance to celebrate the 30th anniversary of REO’s greatest selling album from 1981 titled, “Hi Infidelity.” So hearing REO kick off the concert with “Don’t Let Him Go” and continuing with “Keep on Loving You,” “In Your Letter,” “Someone Tonight,” “Tough Guys” and “Take it on the Run” from that album was nothing short of a classic rock celebration.

TGIF! Congratulations on making it through another week. For your reward, I’ve written a special edition of Caught My Eye for the end of July.
Caught My Eye (or CME as we like to call it around the newsroom) is where I take a look at some of the stories that I did not have time to comment about during the week. Sometimes I add just a touch of sarcasm. I also try to make my readers smile and forget about their worries (not really).
This week we take a look at people named Simpson, Rehberg, Tester, Schweitzer and Hill. We look at issues such as pell grants, the postal service, and circumcision. I also write about music and MTV and REO Speedwagon.
Sit back and relax. Grab a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy the read… Continue reading →
It’s getting close to March Madness time once again, but in my household it’s madness all the time as I am surfing the web to bring you the stories that “Caught My Eye” each week.
These are the stories that I did not have time to write about during the week, so I take a quick look at them and sometimes add a little sarcasm in my comments.
This week I write about KRTV and KFBB, REO Speedwagon, spiders, Charlie Sheen, and I take a look at some of the e-mails that hit my political inbox!
Since it’s Friday and not much work is being done, grab a cup of your favorite drink (no alcohol before noon, please), sit back and relax and enjoy the 33rd straight week of Caught My Eye. Continue reading →
