My name is Frank Rives. I am currently employed by Lewis and Clark County, Montana, as an associate planner. I love living in Helena, Montana -- i.e. the Queen City of the Rockies. We are primarily a rural county with pretty lax land use regulations. Pretty much all I do is review subdivisions. Before I worked for Lewis and Clark County, I worked for the KGB. That is, the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, in Alaska, as a planner. Which was a good job, but the constant rain and grey skies was a major bummer.

I am married to a Colombian woman. We have a two-year-old son, who is part Colombian, part Cajun (my side) and part Tasmanian Devil.

That's my story in a nutshell. Look forward to participating in this forum and others. It looks like fun.

Welcome. I just got here myself. But, hey, that's no excuse to not say 'hi'.

welcome back to the lower 48

I have always wanted to go to Alaska, I may be asking you for good "tourist destinations" in the future. :)

Welcome! It seems that this place is getting pretty well filled-out geographically now. You must be one of the only people from Montana.

O do have to say, the name "otterpop" gives me this visual image of a child licking a frozen varmit on a stick.

Welcome!

I did some grad work west of you in Missoula a decade ago or so. I came real close to taking a job with Missoula County back then.

Still dying to go back for a visit.....

Welcome! I fell in love with Montana as a kid, and will be visiting again (for the seventh time) next month.
