A cool map and other neat items!

Wowza. Did you see this one?

A U.S. Justice Department investigation into the handling of sexual assault cases by the Missoula Police Department, the Missoula County Attorney’s Office and the University of Montana will be announced Tuesday.

A couple other things in case you missed them:

1. My story about Verizon’s plan to cut a road across Waterworks Hill for a cell tower. One of the things I learned about at the Kiplinger Program was maps, and here’s my first attempt. In a voicemail exchange with the Office of Planning and Grants’ Mike Barton, I learned that cell phone companies are supposed to submit to OPG each year their list of towers and whether the towers are in operation. OPG’s Ana Aronofsky said Verizon is the only company that complies, and she sent me their list. I made this map based on their information:

2. The Missoulian editorial board calls for openness from the Missoula Economic Partnership.

All for now. I’m having all kinds of trouble with the embed code for the map, so I hope I can publish this thing. If not, I’ll just link to it and cry a little.
