Quote for the Day…
Don’t let anyone who hasn’t been in your shoes tell you how to tie your laces. -Anonymous
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Election Day
- On My Door
- Teacher Appreciation Week
- The Western Word Poll
Today (May 3) is Election Day in many places across Montana and the USA.
Here in Great Falls, there is a school board election. Last month I had this to say about that election:
“I will be voting for Mark Finnicum, Gordon Johnson, Nathan Reiff, and Russell Herring. If there was one more vacancy, I would vote for Amie Thompson.
These candidates are very well qualified.”
Please take the time to vote!
ON MY DOOR:
I found an interesting two-page letter in an envelope with a rubber band attaching it to my door Monday. It was (I think) about the City of Great Falls “rejected the state’s Marijuana Laws by citing federal classification.”
The author wants me to sign the letter and send it to the city.
If anyone wants to break down the reason for the letter in a couple of sentences and share what you think it means or discuss if there is any merit to the author’s argument, go for it.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK:
May 2-6 is Teacher Appreciation Week.
The Western Word totally supports our public school teachers!
Thank you, Teachers! #ThankATeacher
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
This week’s poll question asks, “Do you approve of Elon Musk buying Twitter?” (Background)
The results will be posted later this week.
