On Tuesday, the Missoulian will help the Missoula Food Bank kick off its holiday food drive by including a grocery bag with each edition of our newspaper.
We’ve provided this service for years, and are happy to do so – albeit sorry that the need continues.
In fact, were we to truly show the need as this [...]

Here at MissoulaEditor.com, we’re borrowing – OK, stealing – from our friend and colleague Gwen Florio this morning.
Florio’s blog, CopsandCourts.com has a great daily feature: “Cops and Courts Quote of the Day.” And there’s been no [...]
Sunday’s Missoulian is going to be a “lollapalooza,” to borrow one of my favorite words from the annals of the Western Montana Fair.
Years ago, I wrote a story on highlights from a century’s worth of county fairs, and in one of those the Missoulian reporter remarked that the fair had been a “lollapalooza.” I think [...]
Big-rig modules awaiting transport through Missoula.

The courthouse celebrates its centennial on Monday, so we’re kicking things off with a look back at the building’s lively history by Kim [...]
The Missoulian’s Big Rig blog is being touted by folks watching the growing controversy over the transportation of massive oilfield eqiupment from the Port of Lewiston, Idaho, to the Kearl oilfields of Canada – up Highway 12 and down Reserve Street in Missoula.
The blog, presided over by reporter Kim Briggeman, collects information related to the [...]

Then the community’s focus turned not only to the Kearl Oil Module Transport project, but to the development of Canada’s vast tar sands. Or is [...]
There’s a new blog in town, driven by Missoulian reporter Kim Briggeman: http://missoulian.com/special-section/big_rigs/.
As in: Big Rig blog.
This is the place to find all manner of stories related to the Kearl oil fields of Alberta, the big rigs that ExxonMobile wants to use to drive oilfield equipment up the Lochsa, over Lolo Pass, into and through [...]

We’re taking readers on a drive this Sunday in the Missoulian, kind of like those Sunday drives your parents were always taking when you were a child.
This Sunday, though, our guides will be the Flathead Valley’s HIP group, as in History is Posh.
These kindly folks took photographer Linda Thompson and reporter [...]
