Vadeem Lemeza plays with his dog “Mishka” at his home in Missoula. Lemeza moved to Missoula from Belarus with his family in 1996 due to fears of religious prosecution following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Despite claiming himself as “Americanized” Lemeza lives with several fellow Belarusians including his wife Alla. Even “Mishka” is a tribute to Lemeza’s childhood home meaning “griz” in English.
Conservation Easement 1Gene Coughlin and Steve Kloetzel of The Nature Conservancy stand on a section of the Blackfoot River Ranch near Helmville on Tuesday. Coughlin, his brother Jay and neighboring rancher John Tracy Manley recently secured easements through Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and bought former Plum Creek Timber Co. lands from TNC. The transaction marks a final step on the 89,000-acre conservation initiative led by the Blackfoot Challenge and TNC.
Railroad Crossing 1Harlan Ockler, a Frenchtown businessman, stands by the railroad crossing on Beckwith Street. Montana Rail Link has proposed closing the crossing; however, many locals like Ockler use the crossing to take pressure off of downtown traffic. Without the crossing, all traffic in Frenchtown would be forced into one crossing.
Strehlow 1Alaina Strehlow stands next to Rattlesnake Creek. Strehlow has spent many hours in the creek working as the volunteer coordinator for the Watershed Education Network. This fall she stopped working there in the interest of her Wildlife biology studies at the University of Montana.
