Several local residents, many from the north part of Shelby County, were at the Shelby County Courthouse Thursday to hear what the Shelby County Commission had decided to do as far as the proposed Ameron power line is concerned.

Several local concerned citizens were back at the Shelby County Courthouse on Thursday, Sept. 15.
   The commission met with Ameren Representatives Jim Jontry, Eric Dearmont, and Leah Dettmers (ATXI). County Commissioners and officials from neighborhing counties were also on hand for the meeting. Those present included Adair County Commissioners Stan Pickins and Carson Adams along with County Clerk Sandy Collop. Schuyler Co Commissioner Jeff Lindquist and Knox County Commissioners Evan Glasgow and Roger Parton were also on hand.
   The purpose of the meeting was to discuss ATXI’s request, asking for an assent pursuant to section 229.100, RSMo. Under this section of law, the county commission would grant approval for a company to cross the public roads in the county.
   Shelby County Presiding Commissioner Glenn Eagan made a statement to the public in the courthouse lobby on behalf of the commission that they had come to a decision. He explained that they had met with Prosecuting Attorney Jordan Force, who told them that there is no clear case law to represent what is going on. Force also said that the commission could wait until the Western Court of Appeals makes a decision.
   Eagan explained that the commission had also contacted Attorney Ivan Schrader for a second opinion, who agreed that they should delay the decision to give assent after the appeals court hears the case.

   Consent Items
   In this month’s consent items, the board and administration spent some time going over policy updates. Some of the updates were mandatory while others were recommended. Some of the mandatory policies that were updated touched upon bullying, CPR/Heimlich training, and student suicide awareness, among other things.
   Shelby County R-IV Superintendent said that student suicide hasn’t been an issue that they have had to deal with in the last year or so, but it has hit close to home with neighboring districts. He said that it, along with bullying, is something the district doesn’t want to take lightly.
   After some discussion, all of the consent items, which included policy updates, were approved as presented.
   Principals Reports
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Williams reported that enrollment at Clarence Elementary is currently at 106.
   She also noted that Joanna Adams received the Teacher of the Month award from the COPE group.
   After school tutoring is already underway at Clarence.
   Williams said the Leadership group attended Leadership training on Sept. 9 at Shelbina Elementary to assist in continued incorporation of the program into the curriculum.
   Williams also noted that teachers are attending training on alternative testing this month.
   She noted that Sept. 23 is an early out because of South Shelby Homecoming and there will be no school on Sept. 26 because of a professional development day.
   Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve reported the school has new signs outside the building at the front and east entrances.
   A new ice machine was put in place of the old one after it was determined it would cost too much to fix the old one.
