    The Missoula Police Department got the nod Wednesday to have the mayor sign off on a Homeland Security grant proposal – one that names the Rainbow Family as an "extremist" hazard in western Montana.

    The $254,930 grant will purchase a mobile communications vehicle the Missoula police will share with other law enforcement and emergency responders in seven western Montana counties, according to Assistant Police Chief Scott Hoffman. The city's contribution is $29,200.

    According to police, the Montana Department of Military Affairs' Disaster and Emergency Services division already approved the city's application.

    On Wednesday, the Missoula City Council's Public Safety and Health Committee voted to recommend the full council sign off on the project and related spending.

    These people were a little south of here a few years ago - what the Rainbow Family does is to gather in some woods every year and get high. They were all over the freeway hitch-hiking to the Grifford-Pinochett forest and left a mess when they left. Not many want to see that bunch visit, but they go to a new place every year.
