School board hears support for Native ed staff position

By Robert Slocum

About 30 visitors attended the Aug. 14 meeting of the Timber Lake School Board, mostly to discuss and hear discussion pertaining to the Native American Education Committee’s presentation to the board regarding hiring of a Native American Education Coordinator and language teacher.

The committee desires for a Native American Education Coordinator to be added to the district’s certified staff and was asked to present after the school board discussed the matter at recent meetings. Janna Bollinger began by informing the board the NAEC recently reorganized and thanked outgoing president Jon Bigger for his past years of efforts. New president Michelle DuBray read aloud the letter to the board. (See p. 2 for full text)

Storm damages crops, livestock

Article Image Alt Text

Photo by Rondi Aberle
Rondi Aberle took the photo at the right about 5 p.m. MT when she was on Highway 20 at the Promise turn-off. Kelly Landis, who lives just a half mile down the road to Promise, said most of the hail was marble size but some was as large as a ping pong ball. He said the hail lasted about 20 minutes accompanied by wind estimated at 50 mph. About 2 1/2 to 3 inches of rain fell.
Mark Landis photographed some of the damage in the area and another brother, Steve, took photos of some of their cattle that “looked like zebras” after hail pelted their hides.
Mark said the hail was 4 to 5 inches deep on the road and 3 to 4 feet in the ditches.
Damage to crops in the area was substantial; some fields and pastures were a total or near-total loss.
