Is that a rodent skull on your head? Both Drew and fellow tattoo artist James Clark have an homage to the groundhog on their skulls. But, like many designs, the quirky tattoo has a deeper meaning.

It’s a personal thing

There’s a groundhog skull tattooed on the heads of both Drew Clendenin and James Clark. One might think the two lost a bet, but they’d be wrong. The giant rodent skulls are actually tributes to loved ones. For Clark, his niece, and Clendenin, it’s for his recently born daughter. But, why a groundhog skull?

MINER OF THE WEEK

This week’s Miner of the week is Devan Miller. Devon participated in the Special Olympics two weeks ago at Big Sky Resort. Devon works hard both in the classroom and on the slopes. “She overcame a lot of fear to get to the finish line. She was ecstatic when she finished, and was welcomed by the Lone Peak cheerleaders,” one of her teachers said.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Big Sky native Kristi Borge and her husband Erik were living in Northeast Bozeman when they started wondering if it might be a good idea to sell their house and buy a ski area. 

Maverick Mountain was on the market, so the couple drove over on a spring day after the area’s lone lift stopped spinning for the season.
