The county commissioners set two public hearings at their meeting on Wednesday.
Both are on Oct. 28, 7 p.m. upstairs in the courtroom.
Because of Jo Stone’s resignation as County Superintendent of Schools last week, her office is now vacant.
The second hearing will deal with the subject consolidating her elected position with another elected office.
The first hearing will deal with the proposal to close the county offices on the day after Thanksgiving.
Advocates for Hi-Line’s Help for Abused Spouses are asking everyone to say No More to domestic violence and sexual assault in our communities during Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October and beyond.
No More is a new unifying symbol designed to galvanize greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault. The No More symbol was developed because despite the significant progress that has been made in the visibility of domestic violence and sexual assault, these problems affecting millions remain hidden and on the margins of public concern. The signature blue vanishing point originated from the concept of a zero—as in zero incidences of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The No More PSA campaign was spearheaded by the Joyful Heart Foundation, one of the many championing organizations behind the creation of the No More symbol, and was directed by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, the Foundation’s President and Founder, in her directorial debut.

For more than seven months the Pacific Science Center in Seattle hosted the exhibit Tutankhamun: The Golden Kings and the Great Pharaohs. Early this year the exhibit was brought to a close and the artifacts were shipped back to Cairo, Egypt where they will remain, permanently.
Hundreds of artifacts representing 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history called the exhibit home for just under a year, including over 50 objects from Tutankhamun’s tomb. All in all, it amounted to twice as many artifacts as the last time Seattle hosted the Tutankhamun exhibit back in 1972.
Maria Elings, who visited the exhibit in August of last year, had this to say, “The exhibit was actually a history of the Pharaohs in Egypt with a few pieces from King Tut’s tomb. I appreciated the historical timeline leading up to this boy king’s short life, as it was valuable to understand the culture he lived in.”
