Clearwater Revival

The section of Mandeville Creek from Montana State University to Bozeman High School (BHS) has been neglected like a misunderstood stepchild for years—but that’s about to change. A tributary of the East Gallatin River, Mandeville was nearly covered decades ago, eliminating most of the stream flow.

Letters - Spring 2014

Snot-Rocket Snafu

Dear Outside Bozeman and Bob Allen,

Greetings—and I’ll get straight to the point. Having followed and enjoyed your publication from your beginnings, I was shocked and chagrined to see this picture and article in your Spring 2014 publication! I have appreciated the quality and good taste which your magazine has contained—as well as the information and attractive ads, etc.

This article makes me so-o-o sad. It’s so Crude.

Kyle Rothweiler

Kyle Rothweiler is an infamous cartoonist of the old school; an unregenerate, un-p.c. admirer of Rube Goldberg, Al Capp, and Walt Kelly; and a strange mutant from another time and/or dimension. His biggest success to date is the strip “Duck ‘Bill’ Platypus,” which appeared in comic books over 20 years ago. Since then he’s written and drawn five graphic novels and two children’s books, all unpublished and apparently unpublishable. His illos have appeared in Outside Bozeman since 2005. He was born in Great Falls in 1956 and currently lives there. He has no cats.

Ken Sinay

Ken Sinay is the director of Yellowstone Safari Company and has been guiding wildlife watchers, backpackers, llama trekkers, river safaris, history buffs, and hunters in Montana for over 20 years. In conjunction with Gardiner-based outfitter Wilderness Connections, Ken has guided hunters in Cinnabar Basin for 16 years. His career has included a variety of natural-resource management agencies, non-profit conservation organizations, and wilderness outfitters. Ken can be reached at [email protected].

Joe Irons

Joe Irons has lived in southwest Montana for 20 of his 35 years. Traveling the world makes him appreciate what we have here, and as far as he can tell, there’s no better place. His many passions include photography, fly-fishing, skiing, kite boarding, climbing (ice, rocks, mountains, you name it), and spending time with his friends and family.

Jim Manning

Jim Manning served as planetarium director at Montana State University’s Museum of the Rockies for many years, living just outside Bozeman. He subsequently worked as Head of the Office of Public Outreach at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, and is currently executive director of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific in San Francisco.  He still visits the area regularly, enjoying its beautiful night sky.

Jeff Wozer

Jeff Wozer operates out of a secluded perch in the Rocky Mountains, freelancing as a nationally touring stand-up comedian and as an outdoor humor writer. He currently reigns as the world record holder in the 17-yard dash. His work can be found at

Jack Jelinski

Jack Jelinski is a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University, and he still mentors faculty members, students, and aspiring fly fishers since retiring in 2003. He has been fly fishing for an even 60 years now, and he writes poems about it when he isn’t on the water. In 2005, he published Water Like the Soul of an Angel, a book of these collected poems.

Dean Sauskojus

Dean Sauskojus has spent so many hours driving to Yellowstone that he could drive the trip in his sleep—which he sometimes does for early morning photography. While most people in the Park are chasing buffalo or waiting for a grizzly to show up, he’s taking pictures of geysers, mountains, streams, and rivers. He’s a self-taught photographer who began taking landscape images with a 4x5 view camera. After living in Kansas, Oregon, and Colorado, he was drawn back to the mountains of Montana.

David House

David House came to Bozeman a decade ago upon his wife Jodi touting Montana’s virtue of having its “complete set of carnivores.” When not in the outdoors with Jodi and daughters Jesse and Remi, David works with Native American tribes, volunteers for the Friends of the Bozeman Public Library, and dreams of family adventures in the wild—including with his pictured sleeping child.
