Blog Recommendation: Bozeman Chronicle Police Chronicles

  • Just good, simple policebeat type entries. For instance, this one from 28 April 2008:
    -A man was yelling obscenities at 3 a.m. Saturday morning. He discovered his best friend’s bike outside his girlfriend’s house.

Postcard Archive - 8. Yachats Breakers

The card itself is actually shaped like the state of Oregon. I am not to great at using GIMP, and didn't take the time to cut out the superfluous bits of the graphic after I scanned it.
On the back:
Oregon - Yachats Breakers
The sight of the Pacific breakers slamming into rugged shorelines is one reason the Oregon coast is such a popular sightseeing destination. Here, thrift blooms frame the foreground as a large wave smashes into lava rocks at Yachats. Known as one of the best spots along the coast to view migrating grey whales just offshore, Yachats has much to offer, as well.

As I learned from a PBS documentary that I watched whilst doing the hated stair machine at my work's gym, there are definitely two sides to this story.
