The last best place money can buy...

The New York Times made it out to Victor, Montana to cover the ongoing battle over stream access rights. The current story centers around Mitchell Slough, a historic tributary of the Bitterroot. Unfortunately, Huey Lewis, a corporate rock musician/hack from the 80s has chosen to live there. His neighbors include equally repellant characters the likes of Charles Schwab, some Las Vegas sleezeball and Kenneth F. Siebel, managing director of Private Wealth Partners. (One hopes that it's a fenced community that protects us from these fanged and shameless bloodsuckers). Anyway, these folks think they now own the river. Montana thinks otherwise: Heroic Money quote from Gov. Schweitzer:
“If you want to buy a big ranch and you want to have a river and you want privacy,” he said, “don’t buy in Montana. The rivers belong to the people of Montana.”

Hey guy,

I represent a fishing tackle manufacturer and would like to speak with you via e'mail, or by phone, about our website.

I couldn't find a way to contact you on this blog, but would appreciate it if you could possibly e'mail me at shawnf_hagens@santel.net

Look forward to hearing from you!

Woo-hoo! AHW is going commercial. Soon he'll be blogging wirelessly from his limo...

Gotta love the State of Montana (at least in this one instance). The stream access law has been under attack almost since the beginning, and it's still around...
