Hunter kills lion as it attacks BIGFORK (AP) Jim Lafever's mountain lion hunting trip ended successfully this week, despite the fact the lion had a different idea about who was the hunter and who was the prey. "I was hoping to run into a 1 lion, but it didn't happen the way I wanted," Lafever said. "I was supposed to be hunting him, not the other way -around." Lafever, armed with a .25-06 caliber rifle, was kneeling under a tree at the crest of a small hill on TAiesday, when he heard a noise behind him. : "I heard something behind' me, from where I had come from. It wasn't much, just the rustle of leaves," he said. Lafever turned around to see a full-grown mountain lion running straight toward him. Still on one knee, he spun around to face the charging animal. "The cat was running full-out. As I turned, it lit in the air and then turned sideways," he . said. "I shot just as he hit the ground."- Lafever's bullet hit the cat in the head. The cougar died 8 feet from Lafever. In memory of CARL J. EHMAN. On year ago today God took you away.

The justices unanimously said the unrefuted complaints about Catharine Sapp-LeClaire . show she would be a threat to current and future clients if allowed to represent them. The suspension, rarely done in lawyer disciplinary cases, was requested by the state Commission on Practice, which investigates complaints against attorneys and recommends punishment to the Supreme Court; LeClaire could not be reached for comment Thursday. In an 11-count complaint filed with the commission this week, she was accused of violating several rules governing lawyer behavior. She allegedly lied to clients and cheated them out of thousands of dollars in fees while doing little or no legal work on their cases. She never refunded about $6,000 in legal fees and failed to provide them with an accounting of what she did to earn the money, the commission's investigator said. He also said LeClaire advised clients to ignore court Minor quake rattles Bozeman area BOZEMAN (AP) A magnitude 4.0 earthquake was felt in the Bozeman, Belgrade, Manhattan and Amsterdam areas Thursday afternoon. The Manhattan schools were evacuated and then classes were dismissed for the day after the 2 p.m. quake, said Mike Hoey, Gallatin County Disaster and Emergency Services coordinator. , No injuries or damages were reported, Hoey said. "It was kind of like a sharp retort and the things in the china jiggled," said Joanne Hinsen of Manhattan. "We have had them here before, but this seemed shorter and sharper." The quake also was felt in ' the Belgrade city offices and the upper floors of the federal building in Bozeman, Hoey said.

Custer County Sheriff Tony Harbaugh said Thursday that dental work confirmed the skull was that of Daniel Robert Wilson, who disappeared while driving from Spokane, Wash., to Longmont, Colo., where his family lives. His car was found Aug. 27, 1988, about 15 miles east of Miles City. Wilson had a history of mental problems. An extensive search found no sign of the man, and an episode on the disappearance aired a few months later on "Unsolved Mysteries."

Although the complaint was not filed until this week, the commission had its investiga- . tor's report a month earlier when it requested LeClaire be suspended. In its letter to the Supreme Court, the commission noted that LeClaire had responded to only two of the 1 1 allegations against her over a period of several months. She did not . reply despite repeated requests from the commission. "An abundance of allegations of serious misconduct stand unrefuted by respondent (LeClaire) against a backdrop of indifference by the respondent toward her professional responsibilities to the public and to the disciplinary process itself," the commission said. The nature and number of . allegations, together with ; LeClaire's refusal to answer most of them, indicate she represents a "substantial threat of irreparable harm" to clients if permitted to keep practicing, it said. In agreeing with that conclusion, the Supreme Court ordered LeClaire to immediately tell her clients and any fellow attorneys involved in her cases of her suspension. moving. It was like a big. truck going by," said Denise Leister of Amsterdam. "It's a general wakeup call Yor our community to be aware that we live in an seismically active area," said Hoey, who noted that aftershocks were , possible. ' The quake was confirmed by the National Earthquake ! Information Center in Golden, Colo., but it was unclear where the earthquake was centered. Hoey said the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation is required to visually inspect dams that may have been affected by earthquakes of magnitude 3.5 to 4.5. He said the agency would" inspect the Hyalite Dam and Cottonwood Dam in Shields Valley on Friday. Miles City identified six miles south of where the car was found in 1988. The skull was near a creek, and Harbaugh said it could have been moved by high water or animals. No other remains were found. He said he doesn't suspect foul play and believes Wilson may have become disoriented and died from exposure. ' . Is your Corporate Website Generating rid you want?
