missoula: Booming or Just Building - Missoula is on the Move - 06/18/12 12:00 AM
I'M NOT SURE if downtown Missoula is booming, but it sure is building. Construction is all around the downtown area with investors betting that owning space in Missoula is going to pay off.
In the past it has proven to be a safe bet. Our community has a long history of supporting a vibrant downtown area. So when buildings began closing their doors several years ago, the question was asked: "What are we to do about it?"
Apparently that question has been answered. Investors are doubling down on downtown - and I'm just one of the Missoula residents thinking their wagers will … (0 comments)

missoula: Missoula Street Carnival Snubs Cars - 06/03/12 11:34 PM
FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS of a famous activity in a Columbian town, Missoulians shut down a main street on Sunday, got out of their cars and enjoyed a street carnival.
For the third time in as many years, downtown's Higgins Avenue became closed to cars for Sunday Street Missoula. Downtown became ultra pedestrian friendly as Higgins Street was turned into a venue for adults and children. Seven blocks of Higgins became crowded with walkers and cyclists taking advantage of the event.
Along with chalk drawing, gymnastics and massive tug of war contests, the kids were treated to ice cream or took advantage of lessons … (2 comments)

missoula: Spring Cleaning in Missoula Focuses on Its River - Again - 04/19/12 01:30 AM
A RIVER still runs through the city of Missoula, Montana and folks here are once again preparing to spend a day making sure that while it's running it doesn't do so through litter and debris.

missoula: Route to the Sun Travels Through Much Snow - 04/06/12 02:08 AM
Going to the Sun in Glacier National Park is all about Plowing Through the Snow again this spring.
This week snowplows began their annual effort of clearing a witnter's worth of snow from the road through Glacier Park. They have their work cut out for them.
Currently there is more than 10 feet of snow covering some of the road in higher elevations. Even at lower elevations, the snow is something more than a foot deep. 
Apparently, those snow levels are just about average.
According to a recent article in the Missoulian, the effort began on April 2 with snowplows encountering up to … (2 comments)
