Pasties or Pork Chop Sandwiches; Which Comfort Food is Better
Comfort foods are delicious treats we crave and reward ourselves with regularly. Even if we're overly happy or sad, comfort foods can rescue or reward us for brief moments at a time. As humans, WE DEMAND OUR COMFORT FOODS! Okay, maybe "demand" is over the top, but yeah, we want to consume good food for all sorts of convincing reasons. So, let's cut to the chase; if you had to choose one of two Montana traditional comfort foods, which would be your go-to? Pork Chop Sandwiches or Pasties?

Crosby & Beck; Birds (Byrds) of a Feather Rock Together
As information developed yesterday surrounding the passing of legendary singer-songwriter David Crosby, the world stood still in remembering his life's work as a musician and outspoken activist. The news came only nine days after learning about the loss of master rock/rhythm and blues guitarist Jeff Beck. Two incredible musicians from the same era who inadvertently crossed paths in their early careers, and here's how. Before their solo careers and prior to forming The Jeff Beck Group or CSN & CSNY, Crosby and Beck gained fame in the 1960s as members of two separate and very distinct groups whose band names bared similarities. In 1964, David Crosby became the singer-songwriter and rhythm guitarist for the American folk-band The Byrds. Not long after, in 1965, Jeff Beck joined the British rock band The Yardbirds. Their style and sound had many differences, but their goal was the same; to create meaningful and unique music for the masses or to challenge their creativity.

Remember These Top 20 Songs from Your Prom 40 Years Ago?
Once you determined your date for the prom, you most likely wore a full-length blue or magenta taffeta dress or a peach tuxedo with a white ruffled shirt to match. And your hairdo? Big with plenty of hairspray intact or a simple comb through. Hey, it's 1983, remember? One thing is for sure, even if memories of prom night 40 years ago are somewhat of a blur, the MUSIC played by a local band or on a PA system that evening most likely stood out. Do the songs below remind you of your prom in 83' or around that timeline? Whether you danced the night away to them or not, these are the hits that bring back memories in one way or another.

Butte's Chinese New Year Parade is Coming
Described as the shortest, loudest, and coldest parade in Montana, the annual Chinese New Year Parade is set to make its mark in Butte on Saturday, January 28th! The Mai Wah Society has been hosting this event for many years and is excited to continue the tradition with the Year of the Rabbit as the focus. The parade route begins at 3 pm in front of the Butte-Silverbow Courthouse (155 W. Granite) and will head east on Granite. The Butte High History Club has their work cut out for them as they will once again serve as dragon dancers during the Chinese New Year Parade in Uptown Butte. This is a hands-on event, so bystanders are encouraged to follow the dragon throughout the parade. If you'd rather sit back and observe the parade, that is highly encouraged, too. The Mai Wah Society (17 W. Mercury) will also host a reception following the parade.

Facts About Martin Luther King Jr. You May Not Know
Today, in honoring and remembering Martin Luther King Jr., the most prominent leader of the civil rights movement, I'm embracing some interesting facts I never realized about the man behind "The Dream", and perhaps maybe you didn't either. Of course, we know how he motivated millions with his prolific speeches and nonviolent resistance to Jim Crow Laws and discriminatory acts against African-Americans, but also how, at the height of the civil rights movement in 1968, his life was senselessly cut short by assassination. Martin Luther King Jr's message of peace and prosperity lives on today in anyone who understands and supports what his mission represented.
