Scott the newly re-formed Wilkin- son County High School Band Booster Club was invit- ed to the Wednesday, October 14, meeting of the Wilkinson County Board of Education. "I asked them to come and tell the beard what they are doing and what their plans are on assisting the growth of our district's band," said Supt. Scott. WCHS Band Booster Club President Esther Thompson said, "The district has not had a decent band in 5-6 years. To help with this prob- lem, we formed a new band booster club. We have raised money and bought the band white tee shirts and plan on buying orange ones." She continued, '%Ve want our band to be what it used to be. They are getting better and better with each day," Another booster club offi- cer said, "We are working te- wards next year. We need the Board of Education to do all they can with fimding for the band next year." Supt. Scott said, '%Ve ap- preciate all you are doing. If you are raising money, the school district needs a plan of action from the Band Booster Club." It was announced that band uniform consisting of a coat, pants and hat costs about $350 per person. Board member and Board President Charlie Floyd said, "Hopefully, next year we will have a dressed out band. We will do what we can." Board members Linda Boyd, Billy Spiller and John- ny Smallwood all expressed their support for building a bigger and better band and for the Band Booster Club. Board member Spiller asked the school district to remember the late Dewey Barley, who died last week and was a former school dis- trict employee with about 25 years of service. At the time to open bid offers, an announcement was made that the district received no bids for Occupa- tional Therapist and Physi- cal Therapy services for the schooldistrict. The school district received a number of bid offers for timber sales on two county school district sections as fol- lows: Section 16, T3N/R1E containing a total of 62 acres -- Gulf States Timber, Clin- ten, La. - $64,400; Woodhav- en, Natchez, $169,000; Good Hope, Natchez, $93,998. On recommendation of County Forester Charles Wellborn, the beard voted 5-0 to accept the high bid offer from Wood- haven for $169,000 Section 30, T4N/R3W containing a total of 83 acres -- Good Hope, Natchez, $47,998; J. M. Jones Lum- ber Co., Natchez, $53,517; Darden Timber, Centreville, $11,256; Woodhaven, Nat- chez, $33,000. On recommen- dation of the county forester the beard accepted the high bid of J. M. Jones Lumber of $53,517. Supt. Scott said there is a problem with a timber sale contract with Georgia-Pacific on Section 18, T2N/R1E that has been ongoing since April, 2015. The name on the bid bend is not the same as the name on the contract. '~fis has finally been corrected and approved by myself and our county forester, Mr. Well- bern," said the superinten- dent. On motion by board member Fannie Bateaste and a second by Spiller, the revised contract was ap- proved by 5-0 vote.
