School board gives go-ahead for alternative calendar

The School Board for the Haakon School District #27-1 spent last Monday inspecting the country schools, interviewing for a school superintendent for next school year, and conducting a scheduled school board meeting.

The annual country school inspection tour was predictably informative. The buildings and properties were noted. The teachers did have the opportunity to show off the students and the teaching programs.

The interviewing for a new superintendent will be an ongoing process until the right candidate is found. The position will then be offered to that candidate.

Scotties beat White River 49-14 for homecoming

Blocking was key as Dana Kerns is once again given an open path through the White River Tigers' line. Alex Brech and John Hanes double-team a Tiger.

Exploding into the first quarter, the Scotties still had 11:02 on the clock when John Hart intercepted a pass and ran the ball in for a touchdown. The extra point attempt by Ty Fees was good.

Six minutes later, Dana Kerns passed 25 yards to Brit Miller for another touchdown. The extra point attempt failed. The Tigers fought back with less than a minute on the clock when Clinton Osterbur let loose a 77 yard pass to Travis Krogman for the touchdown. The Tiger extra point attempt failed.

The second quarter belonged to the Scotties.
