The Western Word is coming to you, STILL, I repeat STILL, coronavirus free, from deep inside an underground bunker in Montana. The bunker also serves as the worldwide headquarters for The Western Word blog!

Today’s independent commentary deals with these people/issues:
There’s a May 8 School election in Great Falls that will elect two school trustees and approve/disapprove a $1.35 million elementary levy. The Great Falls Tribune reports that voters will also find on the ballot a section asking them to consider the creation of Park District-1 with an assessment amount of $1.5 million annually for the first three years to address $12.6 million in deferred maintenance identified in the city’s parks and recreation sites.
The ballots are in the mail according to a recent article in the Trib. Below you will find my commentary about both.
