Shelby County R-IV taxpayers may be looking at a bond issue, whether it’s tax levy or a lease purchase, either way the election turns out.
   R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex said that even if the elementary school issue is defeated, something major is going to have to be done.
   With the current operating budget, very minor projects can be done to fix small issues, but the larger problems, which are in great need for attention will require a tax increase of some sort, whether it’s a bond issue or a lease purchase.
   Maddex said all the existing elementary structures are in need of work that would require a great deal of money to be spent. An amount that would require the tax levy to increase. He said that the architect has estimated repairs to the current elementary at Shelbina to be around $5 million for deferred maintenance and upgrades.

The Shelby County R-IV School Board held its regular meeting on Wednesday, March 14 in the middle school library. Several issues were discussed.
   Combined Grade
   Levels Discussion
   The board briefly discussed the possibility of combined grade levels at Clarence if the proposition for a new elementary fails. Maddex said that today (Wednesday) five staff members, the elementary administrators and himself are going to go to Holliday and Callao to look at the curriculum and how they address student needs. He said they want to see how it works in a hands-on situation.
   Safety
   Maddex talked briefly about safety within the buildings, and steps the district has taken in the past few years to make things more safe and secure. He mentioned the surveillance cameras that have been put in place in many areas. He also noted that the buildings are locked and people enter through the buzzing system.
   He noted that they have replaced windows at the middle school and high school buildings. He noted that they are half windows and slide open and shut, and they are removable.
   They have had active shooter training by local law enforcement and the highway patrol.
   Maddex also mentioned having the exterior doors numbered so if there ever was some kind of emergency, they can tell law enforcement what door number they need to enter.

Macon Electric Cooperative (MEC) sponsored an electrical safety demonstration on Thursday, March 15 for fourth students at Shelbina elementary school. The presentation was conducted by MEC employees, Scott Owen and Allie Foster. MEC’s unique table-top display unit captivated the young audience and sent students away with a much greater respect for electricity and the dangers associated with it.
   Students were taught how to react quickly and safely in various emergency situations involving downed power lines. Owen warned the audience that if they are ever in an accident involving a power pole, they should assume electrical lines could be down and energized.

Pictured above is a house that sat on the north edge of Lakenan.

Ron White was three years old when his mother Shirley came into his room to help him get to sleep on a spring night 40 years ago.
   It was March 15, 1978 when a Churchill Truck Lines tractor-trailer blew out a front right tire causing the truck to run off the highway and through the corner of the house, taking out Ron’s bedroom, and just barely missing his mother and himself.
   “They said my mother’s nightgown actually had part of a tire track on it,” White explained. He was found outside in the yard under some rubble.
