The Community's Response To A Family's
Setback Is Described As

'Powerful... Really Incredible'

For just a few minutes, it was a negative experience.

After that, it was totally positive.

The collective arms of the Sentinel’s coverage area reached out to David and Teresa Feidt and their children – Jordan, Nicholas and Sara – even as an accidental fire was leveling their milking barn the afternoon of Sept. 16.

Board offers union
2 options to avert strike

The Line Mountain School Board, Oct. 27, voted unanimously on two motions intended to keep students in class while teacher-contract issues are resolved.

With all nine members present the board first voted to offer non-binding arbitration to the district's teacher union, the Line Mountain Education Association.

A subsequent motion extend a different choice to the LMEA: Fact-finding.

According to information shared at the meeting, fact-finding is, overall, a shorter overall process involving fewer people. Non-binding arbitration takes place within a longer time frame and with more people involved on both sides of the negotiating table.

As of this posting (Oct. 28), there was no official response from the LMEA.

The association previously had announced that a strike would begin Wednesday morning, Nov. 5 if contract issues were not settled at that point. 

Line Mountain's teachers have been working under the terms of a contract that expired June 30, 2012.

More details will be published in the Sentinel's Nov. 4 print edition.
