At the conclusion of Saturday’s performance of “Are You New Here?” by
the Young Thespians Drama Club, fourth grade teacher Tammi Prete was
recognized for her efforts in establishing the student club during the 2012-13
school year. Superintendent Casey Klasna, with the help of several student
actors, presented Prete with a dozen roses. Other instructors recognized for
“S-a-a-a-d movies always make me cry”. Those lyrics, sung by Sue Thompson in a number one song from the late 50’s, reminds me of some tales being told about Terry and Prairie County’s history. But if you come looking for sad stories, you picked the wrong place as residents of this sparsely populated county in Montana have more optimism than ever after suffering the boom and bust cycles in dry land farming, cattle ranching and oil for the last hundred or so years.
