Sagebrush Collaboration

As a transplanted westerner for 40 odd years, I’ve come to love the skies, the vistas and the stubborn individualism that runs deep in the culture of so many of the wide open places west of the Mississippi. That stubbornness sometimes goes a little overboard like it did with the original Sagebrush Rebellion or maybe a lot overboard like it did at the two government standoffs with the Bundys mentioned in this next piece. But during a time when we’re all looking for a little hope and inspiration, we need to look no further than Harney County Oregon.
