So, it’s illegal to have a rock in your house in Billings?

After rejecting the same plan last month, the Billings City Council voted on Monday night to remove a giant rock that has come to rest inside a home just underneath the Rimrocks…

In October, a 1,000-ton sandstone boulder sheared off from the Rims and crashed into a house below…

The home is destroyed, and the rock is still inside the home while a complicated payment dispute plays out between the homeowners, their insurance company and the city. The homeowners have filed a lawsuit to force the city to remove the rock, while the city has issued a code enforcement violation against the homeowners in an attempt to get them to remove the rock.

This cat burglar pussyfoots around


There’s a cat burglar on the loose in a California community. Neighbors know who it is, but they’re not pressing charges.That’s because the thief is indeed a cat!

…His owners say in the past three years, they figure he’s stolen about 600 items, and he’s not choosey. He’ll take anything that’s not locked down: towels, gloves, shoes, socks, toys. In fact, he took one pair of shoes in two trips.
