SHELLEY â Itâs always nice to lead off a budget meeting with announcement of a savings.
Michael Keith of Seattle Northwest announced the successful refinancing of Shelleyâs 2002 bonds Thursday morning.
By refinancing these bonds, taxpayers in the Shelley School District will be assessed $573,000 fewer taxes over the life of these bonds.
The district received five bids in this competitive bond sale. D. A. Davidson and Company gave the district the lowest interest. The trustees had a motion and approval to sell the bonds to D. A. Davidson and Company.
BLACKFOOT â Six years ago Jason Bullock had one of those moments he calls âgut check timeâ. As a young father Bullock was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
The disease was not new to his family. Family members on his and his wife Dawnetteâs side have battled the disease.
âWhen the urologist said âitâs cancerâ it hits hard,â said Bullock. âIt is a gut check kind of thing and I had to face how I was going to react. I was just going to live. Your mental process is a big part of how you recover and live life after.â
