Feudin', Fussin' and A-Fightin' at the Flathead County (MT) Library System

Link to September 27 article, "Library board responds to complaints".

Excerpt: Flathead County Library Board Chairwoman Jane Lopp provided official answers Thursday to a long list of concerns from a group of Whitefish library supporters, but apparently didn't satisfy them.

"We wrote a five-page letter with over 20 specific questions. We would hope the board's response to our questions was less superficial and generic than they appeared," said the Whitefish group's spokeswoman, Anne Moran. "I can't think of a better demonstration of the diligence our issues received than the very brief verbal response we got at the meeting today."

Lopp, on the other hand, said Thursday's answers were a full disclosure to factual questions raised in the letter. The remaining points, she explained, were matters of opinion from the group and it would be neither productive nor appropriate for her to give a formal response.
