A westside Bozeman restaurant located in The Market complex announced this week via their social media that they were closing their doors after five years in business, and the new owners would be rebranding the bar and restaurant.
It's incredibly easy. Parts of Montana are already a tinderbox for so many topics - housing, urban camping, politics, cost of living, etc. Throw in a chain restaurant with a significant political, religious, and social slant and you've got yourself an old fashioned screaming match.
Montana is obviously a big place, so it takes a lot of resources to cover such a vast territory. There are over 280 fire departments across the state, with the vast majority (80%+) being completely volunteer. No matter if they're career or volunteer, one of the most loved assets of fire departments? The fire stations themselves.
