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. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.
Today I write about Motl v. Wittich, Roasting Bullock, Adam Sanchez Jr, Gazette & Daines/Zinke, the Iowa Caucus, alcohol deliveries, plus much more!

Welcome to Wednesday! When there are several stories out there that I want to comment about, I combine them into an “Odds & Ends” or “potpourri” column. Today is one of those days!
By the way, with the election season heating up you really need to follow The Western Word on Twitter and like The Western Word’s Facebook page! You can even subscribe to this blog (see the box on the right).
The “Political Odds & Ends” today include these topics:
Wow – it’s hard to believe that this is the last day of September. At least with October we’ll have some baseball playoffs to watch (if you can find the channel), plus football kicks into high gear. We also have hunting season – so watch out!
By the way, there are about a gazillion new laws taking effect October 1 here in Montana. This is because the Montana legislature circus met in Helena earlier this year. OK, there are not a gazillion new laws, just 165 according to the story from the Associated Press. Some even make sense!
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. – Winston Churchill

It looks like we have a race for an open seat on the Montana Supreme Court brewing!
State District Court Judge Dirk Sandefur announced in February that he would run for the seat being vacated by Justice Patricia O. Cotter. You can view his website HERE.
Earlier this week, the Great Falls Tribune reported that Kristen Gustafson Juras of Great Falls had filed for election to the Montana Supreme Court. I first read the news Monday via Twitter from Troy Carter who writes for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (BDC). You can read the BDC story HERE. The campaign website for Juras will go live June 1.
