Wait a second, what’s different about my printed Indy? — First off, thanks for asking. We're glad you noticed. This week's Indy debuts a new trim size. It also features an overall improvement in print quality, as evidenced by the color and crispness in our photos, graphics and ads. We're pretty excited about the latter but realize you may have questions about the former.

An intense dance movie for dancers - and non-dancers (honest) — click to enlarge Tension-filled movies don't always involve undercover spies or phone calls from inside the house.

My bet with Gov. Schweitzer — Gov. Brian Schweitzer made international headlines last week when he referred to "jackasses" in Washington, D.C., holding up the Keystone XL pipeline. Buried in the same interview, below the governor's colorful commentary of Beltway bureaucrats and a funny description of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, he said he'd bet cold hard cash that the pipeline would be built.

No, this time MovieMaker magazine has listed Missoula among the top five towns for moviemakers to live and work.
