KPAX reported tonight that the recent Envision Missoula transportation planning meetings suffered a glitch in the nifty hand-held computer devices which collected data from the participants at the Wednesday evening session.

Because of that glich – the consultant’s computer crashed, loosing the collected data – Mike Kress, Senior Transportation Planner, said that another meeting will be held to do exactly what they were trying to do – which is collect information from Missoula’s citizens on their thoughts of how the area’s transportation system should tackle our transportation and growth needs in the future.

{sigh} I know those planners have worked very hard at doing their best to make the community aware of its meetings and of gathering as much community and public input into the planning process. If only all of our planning processes were as diligently transparent.

Kress said he expected the meetings to be held in 2 to 3 weeks.

I’d link to the article in the Missoulian, but they didn’t even bother to provide the website…I had to go googling.

Oh, the sacrifices I do for our readers!  All for free!

Seems UM’s Monte is nominated as one of the possible mascots for Electronic Arts soon-to-be-released Wii version of NCAA Football 09.

Voting for the NCAA Football 09 Wii Cover Mascot Challenge will start on Thursday, February 14. By visiting EA’s website, fans can cast one vote per day for their favorite college mascot until the contest closes on Thursday, March 6. The winning school’s mascot will be announced March 14 on the NCAA Football 09 website.Fans will be able to choose their favorite NCAA FBS (formally known as Division 1-A) college team mascot, and will ultimately decide which college mascot will represent this year’s NCAA Football 09 Wii cover.

In the Big Sky/Sun Conferences, there are three choices – Monte, the Middle Tennessee Lightening and the North Texas Scrappy.

What the h*ll is a Lightening or a Scrappy?

Lest anyone forgets, I’m gonna put this post under “Pages” over to the left. If you are here reading 4&20, you need to be voting for Monte.

So that’s one vote per day folks. No excuses.
