Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Ron Blankenship advised the Calhoun school board last night, work would begin on correcting a ventilation problem which has allowed mold to grow around vents this summer at Calhoun Middle/High School.

Blankenship said a company which was involved with the construction of the school, Casto Technical, would be making adjustments to the ventilation system "without cost to the board."

He said the problem is related to the balancing of outside air with inside air.

Blankenship acknowledged the receipt of $200,000 through Congressman Allan Mollohan for improvements to the athletic complex and for completion of the new county board office at the Mt. Zion Campus. He said the board will move from the old grade school building by the end of June, 2003.

Board member Don Harris expressed concern (Middle School) kids were still running around the parking lot, when he visited recently. "I find it very scary," he said, referring to the lack of a playground for the Middle School students. Principal Mike Offutt said the LSIC will be meeting shortly to make a decision about the playground location.

At least $10,000 was obtained last June for playground development from the Budget Digest, but controversy has existed over location. Several delegations have appeared before the board in the past two years regarding the need for a playground.

Board members expressed appreciation to the Calhoun Red Devils football team for an excellent year.

Carlene Frederick reported on projected changes with the RESA board.

Other routine business was conducted.

The next meeting is scheduled for November 18, 2002 at 7 p.m. at Calhoun Middle/High School.

The Herald will print the minutes of the meeting later in the week.
