It is hard to imagine it has been 20 years since we started the L. A. Open (Lower Alabama). For those of you who are not in the know, it is a group of guys who get together and do a traveling golf outing every year. This marks the 29th year since it started.
An internet story has revealed that Simpson County School Superintendent Greg Paes was appointed superintendent of Simpson County School District for an additional 18 months.
The school board held a special meeting to hire Paes Thursday, May 18.
The Simpson County School Board is considering the possibility of having a facilities study plan done to assist them in determining the best plans for the future of the physical facilities in the school district.
The cost of the facility analysis would be $22,000.
A s a rule we stay away from writing about politicians during political season; however, when a statewide official comes to town it is news and particularly if the visitor is a gubernatorial candidate.
The purpose of a special called meeting of the Simpson County School District board Monday afternoon was unclear even to board members.
The notice sent to the newspaper stated as the reason “for Interview of Greg Paes for consideration of Superintendent appointment.”
