POLSON — Leap Day is Feb. 29. The extra day added every four years at the end of February allows the human made calendar to “catch up” to the actual orbit time of the earth around the sun (365.25 days). You cannot fool Nature, it runs on astronomical time, not Mountain Standard Time. Persons fortunate enough to be born on “leap-day” can have either Feb. 28 or March 1 as their birth-day celebration.  All the “leap-babies” that I know party on both days for three years.

Applications are now being accepted for the position of Director for Nutrition. Secretarial skills, office management, food service experience preferred.
