When I'm wrong, I'll say so. Contrary to my November 8 report, TransCanada really, for truly, has given money to the Harding County FFA.
Jamie Brown, agriculture teacher and FFA advisor for the Harding County School District, sends me this photo of her (on our right) accepting a check for $500 from TransCanada Stekeholder Relations Representative Kirsten Torgerson (the taller gal, on the left) in early 2011.
Another local TransCanada rep, Bud Anderson, lined up this $500 donation in memory of longtime FFA booster and former county commissioner Gary Tennant.
The Harding County School District deposited this check on March 7, 2011.
I apologize the Jamie Brown, her FFA students, and the Harding County School District for creating even the hint of bad publicity for them.
I even apologize to TransCanada for questioning their largesse. We're still short a zero from the original report in Bllomberg, but TransCanada has indeed made a donation to the Harding County FFA.
And with all the dents and dings they're finding in the southern stretch of Keystone XL, TransCanada doesn't need any more bad publicity.
