January 17--  Four new members of the Toombs County Board of Education took their oaths of office at the board's January meeting.

The board approved Doug Alexander to be the new principal at Toombs County High School.  He's been serving as Assistant Principal and succeeds Dr. Kendall Brantley who's been wearing two hats as principal and county school superintendent.

The board also agreed to a 170-day school calendar, agreed to allow local churches to provide weekend snacks for underprivileged children, accepted $5,700 from the FFA Alumni Society to help pay for ag courses at the high school, and decided to change the monthly meeting time from six p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month.

The board tabled a motion to elect Duane Tomlin as board vice-chairman after it was unable to gain a majority of four votes.  A motion by Jonathan Holland to elect Russ Benton to the post also failed.
