Darts and Laurels


Laurels — Bozeman City Council, following the lead of Havre, has banned the use of cellphones by drivers. The action will save pedestrians and passengers from serious injury and death.

Laurels — Once again, numerous volunteers are combining their talents to put on the annual Festival of Trees. The program is a night of fun for people who attend, and it provides a considerable sum of money for the benefit of the Boy & Girls Club of the Hi-Line, a most worthy cause.

Dart — A private investigator and police are looking into the matter, but it sure seems that Great Falls High School was pretty slow to the draw when it came to sexual abuse in the locker room. A football player is facing three felony charges, including rape, after attacking a fellow student in the locker room. The incident took place Sept. 14, but wasn't reported to police until Nov. 10. The district has hired an investigator to determine why there was such a lapse and if faculty members knew what was going on and failed to report it. In light of the fiasco at Penn State, Great Falls — and every other school district in the state — ought to crack down on sexual abuse and fast.

Laurel — Anything that can boost tourism in the Havre area while increasing the public's awareness of the Hi-Line's fascinating history is good. That's why we are excited about the proposal coming from John Bruington, manager of the H. Earl Clack Memorial Museum, to produce a video highlighting the historical and tourist attractions in Hill and Blaine counties. There is a lot of exciting history in this region, and even some longtime area residents don't know about it. If local residents learn of the area's rich history, they can pass the news on to friends and visitors.

Dart — A Billings teacher who resigned after it was disclosed she put duct tape over the mouth of a disruptive student now wants her job back. The teacher told interim Superintendent Jack Copps she was rushed into resigning and didn't think it over sufficiently. It sounds like she wasn't thinking too clearly when she put duct tape over the mouth of a student.
