Hot dog!

Carol Collins has some connections to some big dogs – the folks behind a big hot dog. Noting that recent news has been a bit of a soggy bun, she thought it might be nice to invite the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile to visit Big Sky as a break from the pandemic, politics and fires.

Lost without translation

Aranza De La Torre arrived in Big Sky four years ago completely unable to speak English. Google Translate and her English-speaking husband were De La Torre’s only methods of communication. Until recently, she worked at the Big Sky Post Office where she was able to provide translation for others.

Teton Jon and the way west

Jon “Teton Jon” Rose has summited the Grand Teton five times from three different directions. For him, those summits represent his chase of a lifelong dream. His quest for the mountains was dormant for decades aside from summer trips. His career kept him firmly rooted in the Midwest.

Community goes beyond city limits

Big Sky Fire Department (BSFD) had boots on the ground over the weekend helping battle the zero percent contained, now over 7,000 acre blaze in the Bridgers.

BSFD Chief Greg Megaard, who was born and raised in the Gallatin Valley, said he does not remember ever seeing the Bridger mountains on fire like they were this last weekend.

On the prowl

Tim “Bo Tim” Pattison has faced many grizzly bears in his 45 years of hunting and picking up antlers around Big Sky. His foot was once in a sow grizzly’s mouth after he climbed a tree to try to get away from her – when she tried to pull him down.
