Good morning and happy birthday to M.C. Escher.
On the Beacon this morning, volunteers have signed on to help Glacier Park with a program to observe and monitor the loon population in the park’s lakes. The victim of a fatal car accident near West Glacier Sunday was identified as Michael Robert Willcut, a 22-year-old from Columbia Falls. The Pinewood Park pool opened in C-Falls yesterday and it was doing a booming business. And on the Police Blotter, an Evergreen woman furious at her boyfriend was deemed too drunk to give a report that didn’t keep changing.
The late spring conditions have Flathead Lake at about a foot and a half below normal levels for mid-June. Sen. Max Baucus’ chief of staff, Jim Messina, will take over as chief of staff for Democrat Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The single oil well tapped in the Bakken formation in western North Dakota shows promise that there could be a significant amount of oil there. And a state judge has ruled that PPL Montana, the state’s largest hydro-electric power producer, owes Montana about $41 million in rent for using state-owned riverbeds at its dams.
And finally, check out Japan’s weirdly feminine robot, E.M.A. the humanoid hottie. Have a great day.
