Montana gives county 9 acres for possible museum

   HELENA, Montana (AP) -- Lewis and Clark County is hoping to turn an eyesore
into an asset, now that the state is handing over a nine-acre parcel valued at
$640,000 that some residents have lamented for its rusty fences, sagging barbed
wire and decrepit, metal-clad buildings.
   The Helena Independent-Record  reports some aim to turn the Department of
Administration-owned site next to the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds into a
museum, a records repository -- or possibly just a parking lot.
   With this transfer, County Commissioner Andy Hunthausen says officials want
to clean up the site, then plan and work with the fair board and others to try to
use the property for the public good.
   There's a little challenge in addressing what's described as "minor contamination,"
but Hunthausen says it can be capped.
