Hi-Line darts and laurels
Laurel: Havre High School students Nate Welch and Jaden Griggs will be going to the national automotive technology championships in Detroit in June, representing Montana. They won the state championships in Helena. Best of luck in the Motor City, Nate and Jaden, as you represent Havre and Montana.
Dart: Laurel: Blaine County commissioners were about to eliminate the Extension agent position in the county to save money. The county faces a lot of fiscal problems, and we understand the need to pinch pennies, but farming is the county's biggest industry and the Extension office is a big help to many farmers ...
Laurel: ... but after hearing complaints from farmers and others, commissioners said they were ready to reconsider. That is good news for farmers and other Blaine County residents.
Dart: Scammers are at it again. Area people are getting calls telling them they have won money in contests, but there is a catch. They usually have to provide their Social Security number or rush out to get money cards. In the end, the callers end up with some of the victim's money. Often, but not always, senior citizens are targeted by these scammers. Everybody should be on the outlook.
Dart: Montana Traditional Partnership, which later became Western Traditional Partnership, which eventually became American Traditional Partnership has won another round in its intensified effort to destroy Montana's highly successful campaign finance laws A judge has struck down more of the state's laws because they don't comply with the U.S. Supreme Court's horrid Citizens United decision. As a result, Montana's long history of clean politics is endangered.
