Streamside Way winds up to Great Horn Road and Greathorn Ranch. Roads leading to the relatively remote neighborhood were requested by residents of the area to be abandoned, effectively making the roads private. That request was shot down by Gallatin County commissioners in late November.

Road abandon 'No'

BEST OF THE BLOTTER

A deputy met with a woman on Aspen Leaf Drive just after midnight on Dec. 12. The woman wished to report that she had been punched in the face and pushed down by another woman. However, she did not have any marks or redness on her face, and two witnesses stated that she had not been knocked down.

Charging ahead

When Boyne Resorts President Stephen Kircher first set eyes on the completed Ramcharger 8, he said it blew his mind. Sure, Kircher was well aware what the eight-seater would be like – he was the one who decided to pull the trigger and bring the state-of-the-art chairlift to Big Sky.

Mentors needed!

A proactive approach

The art of his adventure

Mike Haring stuffed $600 in his pocket and bought a one-way ticket to Europe when he was 21 years old. He stayed for 13 months – surviving by playing music on the streets.
