An eye-catcher during Saturday’s Standing Stone Cruisers Cruise-in was this 1969 Pontiac Firebird convertible belonging to Phillip Moss. The flaming copper paint had to be seen to be appreciated.

School Board meeting held July 10

By DEWAIN E. PEEK,
OCN staff

Overton County Board of Education held the regular monthly meeting Tuesday, July 10, with Board member Patricia Bowman absent.

The installation of a door security system for Livingston Academy was approved at $9,975 from Fairway Supply. The expense will be paid by Livingston Academy and the installation will be prior to the 2007-2008 school year.

Livingston Academy Principal Randy Hankins was present to answer questions and Board member Mark Peek asked if the new doors would replace the existing doors or if they would be a second set.

Principal Hankins said, “It will be a second set that will be flush with the offset, and then we’ll have a door opening where we come into the main office, and it will be a better flow. We have a lot of traffic that goes in and out of that one door, so this will be a smoother transition.

“After the first bell rings, we can lock those doors, and any student who is late has to come through the office and see Miss Loraine.”

Board member Sam Pendergrass asked, “So, they can still exit without going through the office?”

Principal Hankins said the push bars would still open the doors from the inside.

Edwina Coffman’s retirement from the Hilham Elementary School lunchroom was approved.

The resignation of Amelia Peavyhouse Sturgill from the A.H. Roberts Elementary School Pre-K was approved. According to Director of Schools Mike Gilpatrick, she has taken a position in Fentress County to work closer to her home.

The comprehensive plan for the 2007-2008 Special Education Budget was approved.

In executive action, the bid of Tri County Propane for propane services at Hilham Elementary School and Wilson Elementary School was approved at $1.389 per gallon.

The bid of Livingston Limestone for bus tires, tubes, and recapping was
approved as follows: new 10/22.5 radial with rock compound 14-ply – $196.36; new 1100/22.5 radial with rock compound 16-ply – $212; recapping 10/22.5 radial carcass – $127.50; recapping 1100/22.5 radial carcass – $127.50.
