(Staff jdtot6 by Amt RounsavaB~ By ANN ROUNSAVALL Several months of preparation payed off in Trinidad over the weekend as one of the largest crowds in history were on hand for beth Homecoming and the Trinity River Jamboree. For the first time ever the two events were held on the same weekend in an effort to provide bonus activities for visitors and guests. Early in the week Tara Thorpe was crowned Miss Trinity River Jamboree Queen in the senior division. Jennifer Jenkins was named Miss Jun/or M/as and Jennifer Ragland took the Little Miss title. Thursday night a large crowd was on hand for the annual Homecoming bun. fire. Members of the Trojan football team were escorted to the site by the Trinidad Volunteer Fire Department. The Trojan Marching Band provided entertainment and cheers were led by the high school cheerleaders. Friday evening Penny Johnston was crowned football sweetheart in pro- ~ceremonies.

Following the Trojan football game against Dawson visitors had choices of events to attend. Students were invited to an after-the- game reception hosted by Calvary Bap- tist Church. A reception for adults was held at the Trinidad Community Center and a large crowd attended the Fireman's Ball, hosted by the Trinidad Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. Saturday morning activities began early with the Trinity Trot, a 8.2 mile footrace through the streets of Trinidad. Randy Betts retained his title as champion for the second year in a row as overall winner with a time of 36.29. Local competitors who placed were Hohoy Fugate and Gary Fleming. Beginning at 9:15 a.m. a bicycle race was held with Tim Edwards as chair- man. Clearing the finish line in almost a dead tie was Hobey Fugate of Trinidad and Bill Simpson of Athens. Thomas Holcomb was first place See.

That in itself, he said, should allow drastic budget cuts. MISD officials faced three different district valuations last year from figures provided by the Appraisal District. Those figures caused turmoil for the board as they attempted to establish a budget for MISD. Platoons told board members that representatives from other districts had expressed their displeasure with the budget but said that he had no idea what action they would take. In a different report Plemons also in- formed trustees that enrollment for the three campuses within the Malakoff district now stands at 1,000 students. As a result of the additional one new bus route has been added already this year and all rooms in all campuses are at 100% occupancy. He said the district needs to purchase two new buses and that $4400 worth of furniture and equipment must be ordered now to ac- comadate the increased enrollment. Plemons recommended that trustees start thinking about additional buildings and pointed out that a trend of growth has been underway for the past three years. He said there are 59 seniors this year and 88 eighth graders and that if no new students are registered the high school can expect that much growth next year. Trustees approved a motion for the $4400 furniture and equipment expen- diture, even though that amount was not included in the recently approved budget. Plemons was instructed to prepare a cost analysis on the purchase of two new buses for the October meeting. Trustees also approved the adver- tisement of bids for sale of five old buses on the recommendation of the administration. Trustee Terry Shelton requested that annual salary reviews be set st one par- titular meeting of each year so that trustees can be prepared with infor- mation supplied beforehand. It was a concensus of the board that a preliminary meeting be held in February or March and that a final decision on employee salaries be reached in the May or June meeting each year. Trustees also approved the first reading of a change in beard policy concerning aide sick leave. The change was approved by the board at an earlier meeting but now must be included in board policy.
