Area School Board held its regular February
meeting last. The board wasted no time in
appointing a new member to their ranks. The
board unanimously appointed Doug
Palmeter to fill the vacant position
created by Linda Dean's resignation.
Palmeter was a difficult choice for the
board. He was the only choice. Given the
profile and history of the current board it
should come as no surprise that no one else
offered to enter the arena.

years. That program will serve as the model
for the schools that enter into the program.
The Board postponed making a decision on
entering the program.
