Well, this is about as interesting as things can get.

New Ravalli County commissioner appointed after questioning about survivalist blog

HAMILTON – Jeff Burrows is Ravalli County’s newest commissioner.

His appointment Wednesday didn’t come without controversy.

Before the commission voted on his selection, the Hamilton man answered questions about a blog that sheriff’s officials felt encouraged confrontation between law enforcement and gun-rights advocates.

Seated at the table in front of three commissioners, Burrows fielded direct questions about his involvement in a survivalist-style blog owned by his father-in-law, Jim Farley, from the county sheriff and undersheriff.


I met one of those guys a little while back. Seemed like a nice enough guy. I visited their website and while there’s a lot of interesting information (although there isn’t as much activity as I’d expect) there is also a large quotient of (IMHO) tinfoil-hattery as well. I suppose it’s possible that I’m the one who is wrong and they’re the ones who are right but …some of that stuff is kinda out there. Here’s a link, you can check ‘em out for yourself.
