Wulfgar! tells us the real definition of a maverick.

I’m sure the rest of America will know it, too, immediately after the very first presidential debate.

I’m sure that is on at least one organization’s mind. Matt Koehler, Executive Director of the WildWest Institute submitted a request for documents associated with the Plum Creek-USFS easement negotiations under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) back on May 13rd. That clock is ticking nearer – meanwhile, in today’s Missoulian, Rey is quoted as saying that Missoula County’s request for copies of the old easements and the proposed easements is “still under consideration,” but that expecting him to provide that amount of paperwork is “unrealistic.”


In order to meet the 20-day deadline under the FOIA, Rey and the USFS would have to provide the documents requested by the WildWest Institute by Monday, June 2nd.

Below is the content of the FOIA request by the WildWest Instutute, sent May 13th to the USFS FOIA division.: Continue Reading »

Oops. using the JH News & Guide article, dated Friday, I assumed from its wording that the dinner had already passed…so instead of this article reading “gave the keynote address” it has been changed to read “will give the keynote address. No wonder the state paper’s haven’t covered it yet!

Governor Brian Schweitzer and Wyoming’s Governor Freudenthal will give the keynote addresses at Saturday’s dinner, which is the closing event for Wyoming’s State Democratic Convention.

Wyoming as 6 superdelegates, only one of which has committed to a presidential candidate. Pete Jorgensen (of Jackson Wyoming) has committed to Barack Obama – the other 5 remain uncommitted. Wyoming also has 12 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, and those delegates will be chosen during this weekend’s convention.

It will be a busy weekend with plenty of fun at The Cowboy Bar and The Silver Dollar, undoubtedly. Michael Shay, of hummingbirdminds, is there. Shay, an Obama delegate, and will also be blogging the DNC convention with Jay, Matt and I (and a whole bunch of others).

It looks like we’re going to have to wait for Michael’s report once he gets back home – Wyoming papers don’t seem to have any coverage up (yet) of the gathering.

Meanwhile, up the road at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton Park (maybe a 20 minute drive) is the Responsible Energy Development Symposium, sponsored by Trout Unlimited and being attended by more than 180 people. Sounds like something our Good Governor might be interested in – I wonder if he slipped in on that one too.
