Mobilizing resources in hard times!

Even as the economy hurtles downward, enterprising individuals are finding innovative ways to raise resources locally,

"Earlier this month, after residents of Pocatello rejected a school levy intended to help address a depleted budget and rising costs, Mr. Harrison (Economics teacher) decided to find a way to help. He approached Dan McIsaac, the pizzeria owner, and brokered a deal. If Mr. McIsaac paid about $315 for 10,000 sheets of paper for Mr. Harrison’s classes, more than a year’s supply, the pizzeria could run an advertisement across the bottom of every sheet handed out in class."
