Gov. Brian Schweitzer has promised there will be no statewide increase in property taxes as a result of the reappraisal. The details of that plan have not been released.

Department of Revenue Director Dan Bucks says that “so far the agency has found no evidence prices are dropping on a widespread basis.”

All this sounds like good news for Missoulians, since Missoula has been declared a “distressed community” (thanks JC!) and the rest of the state is weathering the mortgage meltdown fairly well.

Whoa. Look, I know the Big Dipper is the awesome. But this is ridiculous:

When police arrived early Thursday morning, they found shards of glass in the parking lot and scattered throughout the store’s interior. Investigators also found a rock on the floor beside a drop of ice cream, and noticed that the door to the ice cream cooler was wide open….

[Katherine] Moon was crying and upset and told officers she’d been drinking beer and shots of whiskey throughout the night. At some point she developed a craving for ice cream, she told officers, and decided to burglarize the popular sweet shop. Afterward she felt guilty and knew she had made a mistake, records state.

Big Dipper employees did not know what flavor cone Moon allegedly stole.

Just in case you, too, might be tempted to succumb to the wily temptations of Big Dipper’s homemade, multi-flavored, creamy goodness, pint and quart containers of the store’s ice cream are available at local retailers.
