Time to Bring Russian Inspections in Montana to a Halt?

April 9th, 2014-  A Nevada ranchers kids are injured during confrontation with federal officials.  (Three days after federal agents arrested the rancher’s son for protesting outside of the “First Amendment Area)

April 9th, 2014- Russians inspect Montana nuclear launch facilities. (Not reported until April 21st, 2014)

So, you mean to tell me that on the same day Clive Bundy’s kids were injured during a confrontation with federal officials in Nevada, the Russians were marching on Malmstrom?  And this, in the wake of Russian actions in Crimea, Ukraine, and the continued shelter of NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

Even if the Obama Administration doesn’t think recent actions by President Putin should have brought a halt to new START (the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), it seems these inspections specifically could be brought to an immediate halt.  Montana’s Congressional Delegation and state leaders should demand a halt to further visits by Russian inspectors.  Were they even informed ahead of time? (Inquiries have been sent to various state officials)

Big Snowpack Boosts Big Hole; Stream Flows Should Be Above Average

The heavy snow and dark days of the past winter are proving a boon to the Big Hole River.

The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation reported this week that the snowpack accumulation in the Big Hole watershed is at 143 percent of average.

Good news for fish, fisherman and floaters who have, for the past few years, endured very low river flows.

“We’re about 150 percent of what we were last year,” said Mike Roberts, surface water hydrologist for DNRC water resources division. Both 2012 and 2013 were less than average years for snowpack.

A healthy snowpack means better flows during the summer months, barring a long span of hot, dry weather. The probability of the water levels reaching flood stage or above for the river is 25 percent, Roberts said.
