If attendance at Tuesday night's Parent-Teach- er 15, School workers hired for year Hospital has new director Almost enough Whitesburg, Letcher County, Kentucky, Thursday, August SCREAMS! Association meeting is any indication, the Letcher County Board of Education can rest assured that very few people in Whitesburg care where, wnen or if it builds a new school building of any kind for the Whitesburg area. At a special meeting of the PTA called to consider which should be built first, a grade school or a high school, only 11 persons showed up. Six of those were either teachers or school administrators. Though the PTA meeting and its purpose had been well publicized, meetings of the athletics association, Rotary Club and coal operators association apparently took precedence. (Whitesburg City Council also postponed its August meeting, scheduled Tuesday night, until Thursday, but there were no councilmen at the PTA meeting) PTA members who attended the meeting decided they were too few to take any action, so a committee was named to study the problem and arrange for a panel discussion later.
