Time to talk to your college bound student
It can be encouraging for parents to know that developing and supporting healthy relationships is critical to preventing sexual assault. Talk to your son or daughter about the five keys to healthy relationships — Respect, Learn, Empower, Consent, and Communicate — so they can contribute to a positive campus culture for themselves and their peers.
• Respect: promote and model healthy attitudes and relationships
• Learn: access credible information and resources to promote your overall health
• Empower: everyone has the right to set limits, feel safe, and get support
• Consent: seek mutual agreement without fear or pressure
• Communicate: express yourself to partners, peers, and family
Consent is one of the most important elements of any healthy sexual relationship. Sex without consent isn’t sex. It’s assault. Here’s what you can tell your son or daughter about consent:
• Consent is voluntary, mutual, and can be withdrawn at any time.
• Past consent does not mean current or future consent.
• There is no consent when there is force, intimidation, or coercion.
• There is no consent if a person is mentally or physically incapacitated or impaired because one cannot understand the fact, nature, or extent of the sexual situation, including due to alcohol or other drugs.

Stage I Fire Restrictions Commissioners apply Stage 1 fire restrictions

The Park County Commission on Tuesday implemented Stage I fire restrictions effective immediately.

The restrictions were implemented because of past and future adverse weather forecasts, including high temperatures, high winds, low humidity and lightning. Also, multiple fires in the area may lead to limited resources to respond, according to a Park County news release.

Under Stage I fire restrictions, the following activities are prohibited:

• Building, maintaining or using a fire or campfire.

Livingston-Depot Depot 25th Anniversary Showing of A River Runs Through It 8/17/17

LIVINGSTON DEPOT MUSEUM CELEBRATES 25 TH ANNIVERSARY OF “A RIVER RUNS
THROUGH IT” WITH MOVIES ON THE LAWN SCREENING EVENT AUGUST 17, 8:30 pm.
“A River Runs Through It,” has been named Montana’s most influential film. The film is based on the
novella by Norman Maclean. In the novella “A River Runs Through It,” Maclean eloquently detailed
his father’s religious devotion to flyfishing. His exquisite metaphor elevated that tradition to a sacred,
bordering on transcendental, experience. “Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs
through it.”
As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this iconic Montana production, the Livingston Depot
Foundation plans to host the popular summer event, “Movies on the Lawn,” with a screening on
Thursday, August 17th. The Livingston Depot Center will present the film event on Thursday, August
17 starting at 8:30 p.m. in its courtyard, with a $5 admission in support of the museum exhibit and
programs. Children under 14 accompanied by an adult are free.
The film and local community will be a part of this much-anticipated event with speakers and invited
guests through a cooperation with the MSU Film Department, film producer Dennis Aig, and the
Montana Film Office. Appearing on a very large staged screen, a reminiscences discussion will
preface the main attraction, the screening at approximately 9:00 pm. The Depot will also offer
popcorn and beverages to the moviegoers.
Much of “A River Runs Through It,” was shot in and around Livingston because of its historic
downtown and the area’s scenic beauty. Depot Museum Director Diana Seider stated, “Livingston is
known for its history, beauty, and culture that continues to draw filmmakers to our area. ‘A River Runs
Through It,’ and its local production helped create the modern film industry in Montana.” Many of the
extras and downtown residents still speak of their experiences fondly, and are excited to attend the
nostalgic celebration. The evening’s program will provide time for crew members, extras, and locals
to share stories from the production. Those who would like participate should call the Depot at 222-
2300 to make sure they have a chance to speak.
Not only has the production of the film been a great boon for the State of Montana, tourism, the local
fly fishing industry, and ecological stewardship; it has played an integral role for the Livingston Depot.
Memorabilia and archives from the film were instrumental in founding the Depot’s film collection and
popular exhibit, “Film In Montana: Movie Making Under the Big Sky.”
The event is sponsored by the Montana Film Office, American Bank, Bank of the Rockies,
Opportunity Bank, Katabatic Brewing, Cardinal Distributing, the Showcase Writers and Musicians
Guild, and Funflicks and follows in the tradition of other popular movie showings in the Depot
courtyard. The museum’s courtyard recreates the fun of a drive-in a more intimate environment
without the cars. As no seating is provided, lawn chairs or blankets are recommended.
The screening is also held in conjunction with the Depot’s summer exhibit, “A Railroad Runs Through
It,” in which local artists celebrate trains and Livingston’s enduring and interconnected relationship
with the railroad. The Depot Museum exhibits in 2017 run through September 24. Located at 200
West Park, the Depot is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to
5 p.m. There is a nominal admission, and group visits are also welcome by special arrangement.
Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Depot office at (406) 222-2300 or visiting

It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Vegan Rule #14:
“Vegans can and will
make bacon out of everything!"

Bacon is all about salt, fat, smoky flavor, and chewy crispy texture!
No misery or violent death required.

We’ve never met a person who wants to hurt animals.
People are kind.

Pigs raised for bacon suffer lives that are hell on earth; then are slaughtered at 6 months young.
Those who think “humane” or “local” mean anything are forgetting the ultimate betrayal, the terror of transport, and the horror of slaughter.

We’ve never met a vegan who gave up meat because it tastes bad.
Everyone loves the taste of salt & fat!

depot1WEB Reception for A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston Artists Celebrate the Railroad to held June 15, 2017 at 7pm

FOR THE SUMMER OF 2017 and celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the museum, the Livingston

Depot Foundation is unveiling a landmark exhibition entitled: “A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston

Artists Celebrate Trains.” A special artist reception will be held June 15, 2017 at 7pm. Music by the

Park High School Jazz Band and poetry by Marc Beaudin will set the stage as artists and the public

celebrate trains and our enduring, interconnected, and spirited relationship with the railroad. The

evening will include light fare passed by the Sister City Cultural Exchange, and refreshments provided

by Neptune’s Brewery.

Painters, photographers, and sculptors celebrate both the historic Depot and the dynamic train

activity that passes daily. A poetic Montana reminiscence made into a captivating movie, A River

Runs Through It has its own connections to Livingston, with memorable scenes filmed in nearby

locations. In an obvious play on words, we titled the exhibition A Railroad Runs Through It, reflecting

the reality that is Livingston. This can be taken quite literally—a railroad does run through our town.

But [and perhaps because of its source], it is pleading to be elevated to higher ground. Norman

Maclean has set a high bar....

Guest curators Tandy Miles Riddle and Adrienne Pollard note that the exhibit takes the form in a

range of images, abstract or literal, allegorical, obvious, abstruse, anything reflecting diversity and

artistic insight. From a quilt pieced together with scraps of silk kimonos and gingham (a subtle

allusion to the thousands of Asian laborers who helped build the western railway system and to the

emigrants brought west via that system to settle the frontier) to the telegraph and its interdependent

relationship with the railroad (both linking distant places and kindling the railroad’s concept and

development of standardized time!).

Featured artists include Jim Barrett, Marc Beaudin, Storrs Bishop, Eleanor Williams Clark, Edd

Enders, Malou Flato, Doris Davis Gallagher, Sheila Hrasky, Bob Newhall, Adrienne Pollard, Parks

Reece, Tandy Miles Riddle, Robert Spannring, Colleen Story, Mark Strand, David Swanson, Joe

Wayne, and John Zumpano. Historic photos from the A. Gill collection of Wellington Brouse, as well

as the iconic railroad images from Historian Warren McGee, will be juxtaposed with the contemporary

art. Depot Museum Director, Diana Seider, stated, “A Railroad Runs Through It special exhibit is a

colorful celebration for the 30 th anniversary of the Depot Museum. The powerful work in this exhibition

affirms the connection between the railroad and Livingston’s robust artist community.”

In connection with the exhibit, the Depot will host a variety of classes throughout the season. The first

class will be taught by Eleanor Clark who will be sharing her expertise in naturalist journaling and

mixed media art. Clark will instruct an adult class in afternoon of July 13 th from 1-3 pm. She will also

host a youth oriented class in the morning from 9-11 am. The Movies on the Lawn series will

celebrate the 25th anniversary of “A River Runs Through It” on August 17 to compliment the show.

The Depot Museum exhibits in 2017 will run from Friday, May 12 through September 24. Located at

200 West Park, the Depot is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from

1 to 5 p.m. There is a nominal admission, and group visits are also welcome by special arrangement.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a versatile material that consists of silver (or copper or bronze or gold) particles embedded in an organic binder. The material is malleable, and can be shaped, textured, or carved. Once dry, the PMC is fired with a torch or in a kiln, burning off the binder and allowing the silver particles to bind together, resulting in a stunning piece of 99.9% fine silver! In this class, you’ll learn to work with PMC3 (fine silver) to create a pair of earrings and a pendant, or two pendants (your choice).

Pour Painting AGAIN! taught by Grey Wilson

Date: Saturday, JULY 22

Time: NOON to 2pm
Cost: $45 per student ($40 for LCAC members)

In this THIRD offering, Wilson will demonstrate the basics of creating paintings that use gravity as your paint brush. Use of specific materials will be explained, how to use them and effects that can be achieved when combining them.

Students will be able to do more than one painting in the class. They may have to pick up their art the following Tuesday, as it only takes overnight to dry. Completed paintings also move slightly, so it is better to let them set. Drawing skills are not necessary. If you can put ketchup on a hamburger, you can do this. It's lots of fun and you will be surprised how creative you will become.

All materials included.

Elk River Books presents
The Inner Life of Cats by Thomas McNamee

Award-winning author Thomas McNamee will read from his latest work of nonfiction, The Inner
Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions, at Elk River
Books, 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8.
McNamee received a Guggenheim fellowship for his work on this book, in which he uses the life
and development of his own cat, a tabby named Augusta, blended with scientific reportage to
explore the natural history of domestic cats and their relationship to human society.

As the narrative progresses, McNamee charts cats’ evolution, explores a feral cat colony in
Rome, tells the story of Augusta’s life and adventures, and consults with behavioral experts,
animal activists, and researchers, to help readers more fully understand cats. 
Kirkus Reviews calls it “An affectionate yet realistic portrait of felis silvestris catus and a definite
boon to anyone contemplating adopting a cat.” Cat Warren, author of the bestselling book, What
the Dog Knows, says that "The Inner Life of Cats is filled with shining prose, moments of sheer
cat joy—and intimate, careful scientific observation. Thomas McNamee's naturalist’s eye,
combined with his humor and heart, bring the always wild, yet domesticated cat into delightful,
insightful focus.”
McNamee’s previous books are far ranging, from biographies of American food pioneers Alice
Waters and Craig Claiborne, to fiction, to environmental politics and natural history. He’s the
author of The Grizzly Bear, The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone, A Story of Deep Delight, and
Nature First: Keeping Our Wild Places and Wild Creatures Wild. His work has appeared in The
New Yorker, Audubon, Natural History, The Washington Post and The New York Times, among
other places.
The reading is free and open to the public. It will take place upstairs at Elk River Books, 120 N.
Main St., and will be followed by a signing and reception.

Elk River Books presents

Yellowstone and the Smithsonian by Diane Smith

Author and historian Diane Smith turns to nonfiction for a reading from her latest work,
Yellowstone and the Smithsonian: Centers of Wildlife Conservation, at Elk River Books on
Tuesday, August 22, at 7 p.m.
Exploring the intertwined histories of two iconic American institutions, Yellowstone National
Park and the Smithsonian Institution, Smith’s book details the development of the conservation
movement as guided by the park’s mission, which in part is “to protect against the wanton
destruction of the fish and game,” and the Smithsonian’s task of promoting “the increase and
diffusion of knowledge.” By tracing the long-standing connections between Yellowstone and
Washington, Smith provides background and context for many of the practices used by
conservation biologists today. The book shows how Yellowstone, through its relationship with
the Smithsonian, helped establish the iconic nature of the wildlife of the American West,
especially bison.
Douglas Brinkley, author of Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Land of America,
calls Yellowstone and the Smithsonian “an essential and much needed work of U.S.
environmental history.”
Smith is a research historian with the U.S. Forest Service and the author of the novels Pictures
from an Expedition and Letters from Yellowstone, which received the Pacific Northwest
Booksellers Association fiction prize. She lives in Missoula.
The reading is free and open to the public. It will take place upstairs at Elk River Books, 120 N.
Main St., and will be followed by a signing and reception.
