Officials of the Montana Fish and Wildlife Agency have closed over 180-miles of the Yellowstone River and hundreds of miles of other waterways. The move came following a massive fish die-off that saw thousands of fish killed.

Fishing guides and rafting operators who run businesses along the river said the move could be catastrophic to the area's sizable outdoor industry, which depends heavily on the busy summer season. One official said the closure could last for months if river conditions don't improve and fish keep dying. The closure extends to hundreds of miles of waterways that feed into the Yellowstone, including the Boulder, Shields and Stillwater rivers.

Idaho foster care parents are urging lawmakers to reform the current state system, saying that foster care bureaucracy has caused unnecessary heartache and frustration.

The Lewiston Tribune reported that the Idaho Legislature's foster care study committee met for the first time on Friday. The panel will meet over the summer and provide recommendations for consideration during the 2017 legislative session. Parents who testified Friday argued that the state needs better implementation guidelines and should avoid arbitrarily moving children, which can cause emotional harm.

A high school district in Northern California has sent a notification to parents telling them that their homeschooled children are not lawfully being educated.

When the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) received word that all of its member families in the San Benito High School District (SBHSD) received a letter from state authorities declaring that they were illegally educating their children, attorneys from the nonprofit group were perplexed.

Russian Christians are praying and fasting in hopes of keeping their religious freedoms in tact. Earlier this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that bans all evangelism outside of churches.

The law, which takes affect on July 20, states that no religious proselytizing can occur in Russia except with a license; and then, only within the four walls of a government-recognized church building. The law is aimed at protecting the country from terrorism, but ultimately restricts all religious preaching and teaching outside of church buildings. According to reports, some Christians have stated that they will defy the law and keep evangelizing.

State lawmakers on Thursday handed Mayor Rahm Emanuel broad authority to create special taxing districts to help pay for four major rail projects, but the mayor and his administration would not detail how much money would be diverted.

The legislation, which lawmakers passed as part of a compromise on a stopgap state budget and an education funding bill, is designed to help City Hall come up with money it needs to match requirements to receive federal transportation grants and loans, Emanuel said. But the measure also grants the mayor and City Council wide discretion to create the so-called tax-increment finance districts within a one-mile-wide swath of land along 46 miles of Chicago Transit Authority rail lines throughout the city. The districts, which could remain in place for up to 35 years, would siphon off 80 percent of property tax revenue within their boundaries (with the exception of taxes for Chicago Public Schools) and dedicate the money toward four major transit projects.

A retired chief of the Texas Rangers, Whitman's law enforcement background is an intriguing match with an agency that primarily provides social work. Why focus on pay first?

Doing this right will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. But not doing it right has costs, too. If lawmakers go cheap on agency pay raises, they will be throwing good money away because there won't be enough incentive for workers to stay. It's worth noting that it costs taxpayers $54,000 each time a caseworker leaves the agency, according to recent a review of the agency.

A federal appeals court ruled on Thursday that there is no Second Amendment protection for concealed weapons - allowing states to prohibit or restrict the public from carrying concealed firearms.

At issue was California's law on concealed weapons, which requires citizens to prove they have "good cause" to carry concealed firearms to get a license. Plaintiffs challenged guidelines in San Diego and Yolo counties that did not consider general self-defense to be enough to obtain a license.

HELENA - Eight people with a Great Falls-based group spent nearly two hours Wednesday standing at a Helena intersection calling for more reforms to the state's Child and Family Services division and to protest recent findings by a state panel.

"We need to change the system because it's destroying families," said Georgia Miller, a member of Grandparents Protection Services, a community-based group of mostly grandparents who have held rallies before to draw attention to the issue. Wednesday's rally was at Montana and Custer avenues.
