Will this story ever die down? According to the facts the board has discerned we are intelligent enough to understand, they have only pissed away less than 1% of the Havre School Budget of over 18 million. So why are we upset? It is hardly going to hurt the school budget because they can run a small (like $150,000 maybe?) mill levy request in the May election and everything will be back to normal. Our guess is that the board has their taxing bean counters running the numbers as we speak so the board can start formulating the same old ad campaign they run every year telling us tripe like “if you have a $100,000 house this mill levy will only cost you $4.75 per month to save a teachers job, save the students program s, save the whatever blah, blah, blah, do it for the kids) If Havre residents vote yes to any mill levy request from these nit-wits this spring it will prove that we are all idiots and deserve what we get.
It’s bad enough to know we are from and living in the town of the ignorant but this current school board has made us not only infamous statewide, but now school administration type publications are watching this story as it unfolds. Be sure and check out the story from the Yellowstone County News and do a Google search for Mahon / Havre, etc and you will find that we are listed as the ink spot on the map of stupidity.
