A local bear, after splurging on far too many fermented berries for the Fourth, was having a rough Fifth of July. Hungry and hungover, the bear spotted a nice-smelling Subaru parked in a driveway, and moseyed over to investigate. Finding the door unlocked, the bear decided to take a peek. He felt guilty, but after all, love is what makes a Subaru a Subaru, and he didn’t think the owners would mind too much. The bear took a seat in the front of the station wagon, and admired the plush fabric seats and leftover food.
The seat was not set at the bear’s height, however, and when he turned around to adjust the seat setting, his big butt pushed the shifter and put the car into neutral (this was not beneficial to his self esteem, especially after eating so much the day prior). The Subaru began rolling down the street and the unwitting thief (who had never even acquired a learners permit) could only watch in dismay as he rolled more than one hundred feet down a hill before the car hit a tree and opened a door. The bear felt horribly for the car’s owners, but he was terrified, and fled the scene of the crime when the door opened. One more test drive gone awry.
All it takes is one quick trip to the grocery store to see that we consume an absurd amount of single-use plastic. Your toothpaste tube is plastic.

If you don’t want to hear any more depressing news reports about dead whales full of plastic, then we’ve got to do more than recycling our water bottles and hummus containers. We need to find an alternative for all
Over the past winter, oil and gas companies designated over 100,000 acres of land under the Bureau of Land Management's jurisdiction which they hoped to lease for hydrocarbon extraction. About 85,000 of the total 100,000 acres were cleared to be leased after an environmental review, with the auction scheduled for September 2020.

A climber was rescued out of a crevasse on the Teton Glacier on August 7. Wikipedia photo. One thing many of us probably didn’t know was that Grand Teton National Park still has glaciers large enough to form crevasses. While they are far away from the most popular summer climbing and hiking routes, they still pose a threat as evidenced by the fact that a climber had to be rescued from a crevasse by park authorities on Friday, August 7 on the Teton Glacier on the north side of the Grand
