Boys State delegates chosen
Every year high schools throughout the state choose two junior boys from their school to represent them at Boys State. This year it will be held in Dillon from June 12-18.
Chosen to represent Seeley-Swan High School at Boys State this year will be Dustin Gordon, son of Les and Gayle Gordon and Ron Gossard, son of Boyd and Pat Gossard.
The purpose of Boys State is to teach these youth about state government. To achieve this they will be involved in a model of state legislature.
Dustin and Ron, sponsored by Swan Valley American Legion, are excited about this opportunity to watch and learn more about state government.

School Explains Levy Request
On May 6 voters in Seeley Lake Elementary School District #34 will vote on one school board position and a $39,807 levy to operate the school in 2003-2004. Changes in state law allows the school districts to hold only one levy election a year for the operating budget. Polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the elementary School.
The proposed levy supports current staffing levels and increases in insurance and materials. The levy impact on homes valued at $100,000 will be $17.16 annually. On homes valued at $200,000, the impact will be $34.32 annually.
Seeley Lake Elementary has an enrollment of 213 students. According to figures from the State Office of Public Instruction, Seeley Lake Elementary spends about $245 below the average for elementary schools in Missoula County with enrollments between 100 and 350 students.
