For the Havre Daily News
It is the middle of February and our regular bowling season would be on the down side. A lot of us would be
counting the weeks, wondering if the season would ever end.
Now we wonder if we will have a season, even a short one.
If Hi-Line Lanes were to reopen tomorrow, would you return? I would - in a flash.
It will not happen overnight. That is something we all must remember, once the bowling alley is sold. We must remember, too, that new owners should not be faulted or blamed for what took place this past year. In short - let's all look forward to next season.
