I did not attend the annual Black Walnut Festival parade that afternoon. My class did participate by riding on a float in the parade. Sorry I missed it, but it just couldn’t work out.. City Hall, which could have been a help as property owners rebuilt, became an inefficient obstacle instead. Neighborhoods were rebuilt despite the administration and not because of it. Even when the mayor hired recovery czar Ed Blakely, who later announced a plan to focus on 17 targeted areas, those plans went nowhere.
Bison huddle in the snow in the western edge of Yellowstone National Park. West Yellowstone, Montana is the closest entrance to the Old Faithful geyser area.It began snowing sideways after midnight, and by dawn, the world was even whiter than the day before. Two inches of new snow lay on the ground, slopped upon the roofs and trees and mailboxes even the dogs in the street shook their snowy dreadlocked fur and then playfully tumbled back into the drifts.My own car had disappeared under a pile of pillowy feathers and I brushed it all away like an archaeologist unearthing important treasure.
But how Alexis brought the shotgun in, though, remains an open question, with Washington Mayor Vincent Gray speculating he may have concealed it.Surveillance video shows Alexis walking into the facility, bringing a bag into a bathroom in Building 197 and coming out with the shotgun, a federal law enforcement official said. It believed Alexis had the disassembled gun inside the bag.From there, he headed to a perch overlooking the building atrium and began firing on those below using 00 buckshot shells, each packed with about a dozen pellets capable of causing tremendous damage, according to the same official.Parlave said Alexis is believed to be solely responsible for Monday bloodshed that, in addition to those killed, left eight wounded.Three of them suffered gunshot wounds, one of whom was released Tuesday. Another is Washington police Officer Scott Williams credited with killing Alexis.Federal investigators on Tuesday collected Alexis computer and possessions from the hotel where he spent the last few days of his life.
