HEART MOUNTAIN COURSE
BILLINGS, Mont. _ Heart Mountain looms above the Cody, Wyoming-area landscape, visible from miles around. Its namesake World War II-era Japanese internment camp is less apparent. That’s part of why Montana State University-Billings is offering a course dedicated to the Heart Mountain site, an internment camp that held more than 14,000 Japanese-Americans just outside Cody during the war.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN-GLACIER PARK _ Some visitors to Glacier National Park in Montana have been ignoring longstanding rules on walking dogs in the park since the government shutdown began. Nearly all of Glacier’s trails are closed to dogs, leashed or not, all year long.
RAPE SENTENCE _ A Montana judge has sentenced a Helena man to more than 100 years in prison for raping 8-year-old girls. The Independent Record reports Wallis Dean Sinz was convicted last year by a jury of two counts of sexual intercourse without consent and three counts of sexual assault.
