Will There Be Something About this Case in the Gazette? or the Outpost?

I found this letter on Big Sky Blog, which looks like a useful blog. 16 year-old Demarie DeReu is an outstanding student at Columbia Falls High School.

She forgot that she had an unloaded rifle locked in the trunk of her car when she drove to school. When she realized what she had done she told the powers that be at the high school. Now she is in danger. Her expulsion case will be heard Dec 13th.

I wonder if we will hear about this important case. Apparently intent does not enter into the discussion of the "zero-tolerance" gun policy. Is it possible the school board must levy a harsh punishment on this girl whatever the facts of the case?

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
