Shares

I’ve reached out to a few people to begin writing for the site and a few of them haveuncle-sam graciously offered to contribute to the site as we go forward. I’ll have more details as they begin writing and we work out the details, but I’m really excited to have them come aboard.

If you’re someone who is interested in progressive politics, possessed of the desire to write the occasional or even frequent blog post, I ‘d definitely be interested in hearing from you as well.

What qualities am I looking for in a contributor? You’re

  • generally of a progressive/liberal political perspective.
  • interested in a part of Montana or its politics that’s not being covered somewhere else.
  • willing to give and take occasionally with commenters.
  • possessed of an interesting voice that you want to use to improve the world. Smile

I’d love to expand the site to offer more coverage of communities outside of the Helena bubble, for one thing.

If you’re interested, drop me a line at dpogreba@gmail.com.

  • We bought a timeshare at the Grandview on July 11 of this year. After we got home, we decided that we weren’t able to make payments. (2bd, 98000pts, 4extra weeks for 24,000-add all the interest and fees it works out to be 45,000) I sent a certified mail to cancel, but read the contract wrong and missed on the 5 days. Eldorado Resorts called and informed me that our contract was canceled and would not get our deposit back. I didn’t fight back since I was over the 5days. I wish they would have told me about it when we bought the share. Anyways, yesterday we got a call from someone at the Grandview trying to get us to keep our contract. (I thought they canceled it?) He said he would help us by getting us a 1bd with 2extra weeks for 14,000. My husband and I wanted to talk about it first before we made another rash decision. That is why I am on this site. I was doing some research on this and just appalled! I was reading the story by one guy-Robert about a man who said it was his last day working and was going to hook us up with a great deal. Well, that is probably the same sales rep we had. He was a good actor! He even took us to a private area to tell us about this secret deal which I now know everyone has! He told us that the points can be redeemed for airline tickets and so on. He even told us we can try to sell them. He gave us his phone number and everything. I knew it was too good to be true! He also went as far as bringing us 2 free tickets to the Secret Garden (which he never did!) My husband and I with our two small kids walked all the way down the strip to get them to found out that there were no tickets. not there or the hotel we were staying at. He even called us to let us know that he was at the hotel to drop them off. I know that my husband and I weren’t very smart when we bought it. But I can’t believe that some sales people can be so dishonest. We now know what to do. We will just loose out on the deposit we made and not buy this timeshare. I think the only way we might reconsider is if they sell it to us for 3,000 with 98,000pts on week 1 with 2extra weeks. Do you think that’s a deal?
