The 64th Montana Legislature and college clips

Montana’s attorney general lobbied lawmakers behind the scenes to pass a bill that would help him win a lawsuit over whether the state’s primary elections should be open or closed. http://mtpr.org/post/montana-republicans-divided-over-open-primaries

Montana scrambled to create a plan for conserving sage grouse, hoping to ward off a listing under the Endangered Species Act. http://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/local/2015/02/09/lawmakers-balance-keeping-energy-sage-grouse-alive-montana/23131615/

Clips published before I went to the legislature:

Tyler Hamilton rode alongside Lance Armstrong. Years later, he told 60 Minutes about the doping subculture of cycling. He spent more than a decade in the news. Now he just wants to relax in Missoula. This profile — which appeared in the Montana Journalism Review — focused on how media coverage has changed his life. http://mjr.jour.umt.edu/life-changers-tyler-hamiltons-ride-on-the-front-page/

A lovely story about a banana tree. I wrote this for the Montana Kaimin.  http://www.montanakaimin.com/news/article_d92b92f8-53ea-11e4-a7f5-0017a43b2370.html#.VD_-q2ng1kE.facebook

Montana has only one public opinion poll in many non-presidential election years. This is my poll results story from 2014. It appeared in the Kaimin and on Montana Public Radio’s website.  http://www.montanakaimin.com/news/article_054fde72-587b-11e4-a258-001a4bcf6878.html

During my summer at the Big Timber Pioneer, I wrote about a bullfighter at the Big Timber Rodeo. I shot the photo for this story as well. Bullfighter Profile

This link is to another story I wrote in Big Timber about a high profile hit-and-run case. It was picked up by the paper’s parent company, Yellowstone Newspapers, and ran in a few different papers around Montana. http://www.livingstonenterprise.com/content/trial-dates-set-i-90-fatal-crash
