Z--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Feb. ~, 1900 From the Superintendent's Desk ~, ,,,, (.6 you want to Each Spring in April across the State ' of Texas School Districts hold elections for the local Board of Education. This has been described as a uniquely American institution that has made the public schools flexible and responsive to the needs of local communities, keeping them relatively free from the stifling effects of bureaucracy. I find the last statement a little over sim- plified because in certain areas of our school administration we do have other i-estraints, laws and etc. that keeps the Board from adopting rules, policies and regulations as they might determine necessary to operate the school district. Some of these areas are salaries, era- ployment and dismissal of personnel, accounting procedures, course of- ferings and student discipline to men- tion a few. ,So what are the powers and duties of CITY OF MALAKOI~ (Equal 0ppodunlty [pig]mr) InvttofJon To Bid the Board? School trustees as a board may in the name of the school district: 1. acquire and hold real and personal property 2. sue and be sued; and 3. receive bequests and donations or other funds legally coming into their hands. School trustees have the exclusive power to manage and govern the free public schools of the district. 4. School trustees may adopt rules, policies and regulations as they determine necessary to operate the school district. The legal requirements for board membership are few: 1. Be a qualified voter in the district. 2. Prior to the filing deadline, the candidate must have been a resident of the district for the preceding six months, and; 3. have been a resident of the State for the preceding twelve months, but the qualifications needed for effective service are many. The greatest effect that a Board of Education has is the power to adopt a budget and set a tax rate because these two actions to a certain extent effect every phase of all the parts that go tegether to make a "school system". A board member should be a skilled decision maker, but he must also remember that decisions are to be made only by the board acting as a whole in a public meeting. Individual opinions on board matters can and should be defended vigorously, but once the board as a unit has made a decision, it should be accepted gracefully and implemented wholebeartedly. No in- dividual board member may bind the board of education to a particular cour- se of action.

An Athens man was arrested after police found his car had run head on in- to a ditch on Hwy. 31. The driver retur- ned to the scene and was questioned by police as to who was driving the car. The man refused to tell police who was driving. Police later discovered he was to the editor DEAR EDITOR: As a member of the Malakoff High School, I believe the bend issue was fairly beneficial for a bottom of the line proposal. Not benefiting all in a prosperous manner. Yea l thats a good proposal all right. It does a lot for what the people see ou the outside, but very little for what the students see on the inside. For our faculty needs drastic measures and as for our equipment in the fields of science. Its not worth looking at. You go to do an experiment driving the car and he was arrested for several charges including public in- toxication and false report to a police officer. Police assisted the Henderson County Sheriff's Department on a burglary in progress call in Trinidad.

Police are investigating a burglary of a residence on Hwy. 31. While owners were away their house was broken into and money, jewelry, and a gun were taken.

The police department would like to urge Malakoff residents to call 489-0521, or after 5 p.m. call 489-0723 if they see or hear anything out of the ordinary. For only the second time in some six years the Department of Housing and Urban Development has denied Malakoff a Community Development Block grant. Mayor Howard Julian reported at Monday's city council session that HUD had turned down the city's most recent application for $413,000 to be used for housing rehabilitation, relocation and code enforcement, stating that the city received only 437 "points" of the 530 needed for approval. i I,y Ann Rounsavall I Dawn (don) n I. The first appearan- ce of daylight in the morning. 2. A first appearance; beginning - v (The American Heritage Dictionary) A perfect name for the third child of Gone and Jack Lundy when she was born 16 years ago. She was special, as all of the children are, from the onset. Dawn was born with dark hair and the olive complexion of her mother...different from her older brother and sister who had hair so blon- de it was often called platinum, and fair skin. There were problems at birth. Dawn was born by cesarean section, and she had taken fluid into her lungs. Doctors told us we should know something in about 10 days. During that time the fluid would dissolve and could be suc- tioned from the lungs, or it would har. den. They placed her in an incubator and fed her through tiny veins for many days. She continued to lose weight, and was a pathetic sight for those of us who were monitering her every hour of life. Our only contact with Dawn throughout that time was by peering through the nursery window at her little glass home. She couldn't even be taken out to be held and coddled. We never faced the second possibility the doctors had told us about. We talked about when we could take her home and love her. One day Jack and I were standing in our usual spot outside the nursery. "She is so beautiful," he said. Later he said that when Dawn was three, and healthy, he thought he might give her a spat on the behind and tell her how badly she scared us when she was born. Somehow I doubt that Dawl that spat. The fluid dissolved and home. It was a day of our families. with I By the Dawn age she was a terror. She more mischief than the together.

As a student I know I have to put up with the improper teaching methods, the backtracking for things which should have been learned long ago. I know a lot of people here at Malakoff High School don't care one way or the other about school and a im- proper bend is just as good as another to them. Tough for us who care.
