The Shelby County R-IV School Board had a lot of options put in front of it during the July regular board meeting on Wednesday, July 6 in the middle school library.
   Principals Reports
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Williams reported that an open house has been scheduled for Aug. 14 from 5-6:30 p.m.
   She also mentioned that they received a $200 grant from Orscheln Farm & Home for work completed during the 2013-14 school year. Joseph Wells and his grandmother did some work in the classroom, and that led to the grant.
   There was a leak detected in the roof above the janitor’s work area. Work has been done to fix the problem.
   Classrooms are all waxed and currently drying.
   Williams attended an Autism training in June. She said it was a valuable training course.
   She also plans to attend a Special Education Directors training in July.
   Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve reported that they purchased a new dishwasher for the kitchen in Shelbina.
   She also mentioned that David Hays will be working in the building replacing old computers with newer updated ones.

R-IV Board Looks at Possible Options for the Future

Martin Meyer of Architechnics, Inc. out of Quincy, Ill., was on hand to talk to the board about possible options on moving forward with improvement projects to the district.
   Meyer presented the board with a packet full of data. “What I would like to do is define all this as tools to help you get to where you want to end up later on,” Meyer explained.
   He noted that a big thing they have to determine is what they can afford. Then prioritize things and come up with a final number. He came up with two pages for each Shelbina, Clarence and the South Shelby complex, all including facts about the buildings.
   He pointed out for example in the 1981 Clarence building, replacing with high efficiency boilers and classroom unit ventilators at a cost of $206,000. That was a major improvement. But he also had numbers for replacing doors and hardware, masonry repair, and looking at roofing needs.
   Addition and renovations included space for technology and testing, and adding a new security vestibule. They were all options that the board could do. The board could pick and choose what it feels needs to be done and could be afforded.
   Meyer also talked about a car pickup lane and parking spaces as well for Clarence.
   For Shelbina, he noted Asbestos abatement, stabilization of the structure. Replacing classroom unit ventilators are issues and roof line will soon be an issue at Shelbina.
   He also put numbers for an intercom and a fire alarm. Meyer said there is no parent drop off and no parking to speak of. He put in numbers for a gym and security vestibule and the possibility to replace the special education trailer.

Lyndell Dodge turned 100 years old today, Wednesday, July 16. A party was held for her at the Salt River Community Care last week. She is pictured above with her daughters Diane Totten (left) and Beth Todd.

Birthdays are, for the most part, fun. Birthday parties are fun as well. They are special days that are remembered for a long time. For Lyndell Dodge of Shelbina, today (Wednesday) is a very memorable birthday. She celebrates number 100. And she doesn’t look a day over 70.
   Friends and family had a party for her last week at the Salt River Community Care. They looked at pictures from the past, visited and had cake.
   She and her late husband Fredrick Dodge operated Dodge School and Office Supply on the south side of East Walnut. Frederick was killed in a vehicle accident on July 14, 1951. In January of 1952, Lyndell took over operations of the store. It would later move to South Center Street. The business was then called the Dodge Book Store. It was in business until 1965.
