I heard a story on Montana Public Radio one morning about the scattering of Joe Hill's last ashes to take place in Butte later that day. We jumped in the car for the 1-hour trip. There weren't a lot of people there, just a few old Wobblies. I'm sure Kevin Curtis was there, but I did not know him then. Mark Ross had the honors (we've been FB friends for a while).

Your answer:

We will develop a portlet that finds the three notes taken nearest you. For example:

Fracking Creates Temporary Housing

Alexander, ND  USA

Renters Not Buying New Pickup Trucks

Cut Bank, MT  USA

Energy Production Generates Unintended Consequences

Colstrip, MT  USA

why and how

What we witness may not be "newsworthy" but that doesn't mean we shouldn't attract attention.
