In news from the Flathead, the man picked to fill an Interim Flathead County Commissioner?s seat after Jim Dupont died was sworn in on Tuesday morning. Cal Scott of Columbia Falls has served on the Flathead planning board in the past, and has taught classes at Flathead Valley Community College.

He says it?s humbling to be selected for the position.

?There?s no way I can fill his shoes,? said Scott. ?I can hopefully take his shoelaces, lace up my own shoes, and run with them and do the best I can to catch up to where Jim was and what he knew and along the way provide what I pray is a valid and good and reasonable service."
