They attached my miniature horse three times,” said Mountain View resident Bob Tackitt said. “The last time was the one that really got us. He had chewed the back leg off from the neck down. She was still standing. I am 75 years old and I cried. My wife cried. The vet came and he cried.”
“We are proud to be a partner in the effort to bring college and career technical programs to the Willow Springs area,” said Dr. Wesley Payne, interim president of Three Rivers College. “The programs offered through the Consortium will make a positive difference in the community and especially in the lives of the students we serve.”
While the board offered employment this week to a replacement, superintendent Dr. Derrick Hutsell said the hire is pending the release of the individual from his contract of employment in his current district.
