Our View: Hi-Line darts and laurels, February 28, 2014
February 28, 2014
It’s been a good week, so let’s stick to the laurels:
An article on the Havre Daily News University Page this week reminded us of the value to Havre of radio station KNMC. It provides an around-the-clock eclectic mixture of music. We’d like to hear more live voices on the station. There are already some professors, students and community residents who deejay on the station. We hope there will be more.
Because of the work of North Central Montana Transit and other agencies, people will soon be able to take the bus from Fort Belknap to Havre to Great Falls to Helena and then on to Butte. It will still take a while. Hopefully, schedules will be able to be coordinated better. But it is a step forward to provide public transportation so people can leave the Hi-Line to visit friends, receive medical care or shop. It is another step toward allowing people to visit more populated parts of the state while enjoying the rich, rural nature of the Hi-Line.
Best of luck to Harlem, Rocky Boy, Box Elder, Chinook and North Star athletes who are competing in regional basketball tournaments this weekend. It would be great to see the Hi-Line well represented at state championships.
Community involvement in the schools? Nobody represents that philosophy better than Franny Rosette. She is a mainstay at Box Elder Public Schools, serving coffee to the bus drivers in the morning, helping teachers and teacher aides throughout the day and encouraging students. And she is the biggest supporter of the Bears teams, especially basketball. She is a regular feature at District 9C games, cheering for her team after she launders the team uniforms. Franny is a great person for other people in all Hi-Line communities to emulate.
