Montana's Oil Boom Has Made Reservations More Dangerous for Women

nitanahkohe:

The majority of the oil wells live just an hour’s drive from the Fort Peck Reservation, and Adrian Spotted Bird Jr., the Fort Peck tribal injury prevention specialist, said crimes like disorderly conduct, driving under the influence and violent crimes—including homicide—have quadrupled in the Roosevelt County area since 2008. “Everybody knows everybody in this area, and [the oil fields are] bringing in a lot more people than we can handle,” Spotted Bird Jr. said.

In towns like Brockton, Montana (population 258), the only store is continually flooded with oil field workers. In the next few years, another 30,000 are expected to arrive.

The infrastructure in eastern Montana—roads, housing, sewers—is stretched perilously thin, and goods and services are getting scarce as well. With the flood of workers and oil money has also come an influx of undesirables. “The people who are coming in have no respect for womenfolk here,” Spotted Bird Jr. said. “They’re very rude, very belligerent. They have no qualms about walking up to our young girls and soliciting them, and they don’t care how old they are.”

Spotted Bird Jr. said the number of registered sex and violent offenders living in the area has risen sharply. Before the oil boom, locals could for the most part avoid convicted offenders because they knew who they were, but not anymore. Women and young people are now advised to travel in groups, even when running simple errands.

Spotted Bird Jr. cautions that problems related to the oil field explosion will only grow: “It’s not going to get any better; it’s going to get worse. We already have plenty of our own problems; it’s really going to devastate the community. It’s like the gold rush and Black Hills all over again.”

Bacon Pancake Sandwiches

Bacon Pancake Sandwiches by Michelle Tam http://nomnompaleo.com

I know what you’re thinking: BACON? PANCAKE? SANDWICHES? All are clichés in the Paleo food world (and let’s not kid ourselves: they’re certainly not health food), but there are reasons why they’re so popular:

Bacon and pancakes are mind-bendingly delicious, and who doesn’t like eating with their hands?

So yes: I’m totally pandering to the masses (and my own taste buds) with this recipe.

But that’s not all: I’m also posting because I NEED YOUR HELP. Our Nom Nom Paleo iPad app is the only Paleo nominee for a prestigious Webby Award (yay!), and voting is closing soon (on April 24). We’re up against the formidable Jamie Oliver app, and we’re neck-and-neck with the celebrity chef. His PR machine has been mobilizing his legions of fans to vote, so to avoid getting creamed, I need to do the same! If you haven’t already cast a ballot, and if you dig what you see on Nom Nom Paleo, please do me a solid: go vote and share this link (http://nom.gy/NNPWebby) with your pals! Thanks in advance, Nomsters!

Okay so they actually kind of do have a “how to dress like a grown up” seminar…  

… on the other hand, I will just continue to wear tights as pants and remain by my conviction that tights constitute ‘business casual’…

So I’m looking at courses to take this summer at the local community college:

A. They aren’t offering ASL II until the fall, which sucks.

B. I need a class called, “how to dress like a grown up”

Made chocolate covered strawberries for the fam… and then proceeded to have 6 spoonfuls of baking chocolate for lunch. 

My stomach feels… not good. 

On the plus side: epic levels of gardening happened this day. Epic. Day 3/4 was a success!
