A-14 R Board approves tentative budget for 2004-2005 from front page At this point an audience member asked if this was the time to consider a tax increase to alleviate budget constraints. "We always have that in mind as a possibility," Pennington answered. Carroll Otis made a motion to approve a list of salary sched- ules which included a 1.5 per- cent salary increase for existing classified employees and certi- fied personnel, as well as extra service and extended days for certified employees and substi- tute teachers fees. Otis also included in his motion the possi- bility of revising the schedules after reviewing the grievance of school librarians. The motion was seconded by Danita York Richardson and car- fled without opposition. Later in the evening, the board approved the creation of a bummer-time school program, eared toward gifted and talent- d students. - The program would enable tudents to have access to edu- Cational trips in the summer onths, where they would learn from various experts in the arts and sciences. Those in attendance dis- ussed opening the program to any students, instead of those in the gifted and talented pro- gram. " Pennington said he was not i favor of excluding students who ould benefit from the program st because they weren't labeled as gifted and talented. "I've seen youngsters, who bY any education measures weren't necessarily gifted and ialented, but they were highly [notivated," Pennington said. "I think its only a step in the right direction for kids," Hutchinson added. Pennington motioned to cre- ate the program. Crouch second- ed the motion. I carried 4-0. : Upon the recommendation of Superintendent Hutchinson, the board renewed a contract with U.K. Sports Medicine which provide athletic trainers to Bath County athletes.

Steding World War II vets reminisce about their service days from front page "Then again, it feels like yes- terday." Bailey, who was in atten- dance during Saturday's dedica- tion, entered the Navy in August of 1943. At 18 years old, Bailey was slated to sail aboard the U.S.S. Saratoga during his first assign- ment. The ship sustained sub- stantial damage at Iwo Jima, forcing the crew onto the Ben- Heroine Richard. Bailey later learned that another Bath County native, Alfred N. Crooks, had been killed aboard the Saratoga by a Kamikaze pilot, at Iwo Jima. "All wars are hell," Bailey says. "There's nothing glam- ourous about them. You lose a lot of friends in combat." Like most World War II vet- erans, Earl Snedegar was a young man, just 21 years-old when he was drafted into the Army. Snedegar's knowledge and experience of the world extend- ed only to the borders of Kentucky and the context of his school books. Snedegar found that his fellow inductees were just as fresh to the world as he was. "I'd say a majority of them had never been on a Greyhound bus, ridden on a train, or been out of the state of Kentucky," Snedegar recalls. Three months after his induc- tion, Snedegar was headed to Europe, where as part of the 817th Engineer Battalion, he helped construct runways in England for B-17 bombers. He was shipped to France just days after the Allied invasion of Normandy, and soon began to push forward with the rest of the Campers will receive a basketball along with a Camp T-shirt Name: I Age: I Address: Grade: x, I I Phone: () I Shirt Size: Adult | Circle One Youth I I Parent Signature: I S M LXLG S M L XLG Liiiiimlllmllmllllmlllllllml/mllllllllllllll 576 West Highway 36-Nicely main- tained home conveniently located within city limits.

"Any soldier who said he wasn't scared was either crazy or not telling the truth." Snedegar recalls his days as a soldier but like most WWII vets, he doesn't seek recogni- tion. "I'm no hero," he says. "Those 55 men on the memorial are heroes." One of the names listed on the Bath County War Memorial is that of Floyd P. Penick, a sol- dier killed by Axis forces in North Africa. His brother, county resident Ewell Penick, was a Staff Sergeant with the 34th Infantry Battalion in the South Pacific. The Penick family, like thou- sands of other families nation- wide, sent multiple sons away to war. Like so many other fami- lies, not all of their sons returned home. Penick received the news of his brother's death from an edi- tion of Look magazine, which featured a list of American casu- alties. Penick managed to balance his grief with his sense of duty. "It hurt,' Penick says. "But I couldn't go home and there was nothing I could do about it." Penick spent approximately 40 months away from home, fighting the Japanese. With lim- ited access to radio, information from the Atlantic front was non- existent to your average soldier. "We didn't know what was going on anywhere else. I didn't know what day it was, what week it was. But you didn't have time to think Penick says. Penick sees the War II Memorial ute to the war effort, homage be paid to died defendin tyranny. "The honor should g dead. They deserve for what they've The veterans put their lives on the world from the destruction.
