So when military personnel arrived recently in the Philippines, at the former Clark Air Base, to participate in the 24th Balikatan, it demonstrated the United States resolve to continue to help train, advise and assist the military members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in cooperation with the government of the Republic of the Philippines.

GREENWICH - The South Central Board of Education Monday night accepted a proposal for a high school parking lot in conjunction with the drainage problem. It will provide 107 parking spaces, including five handicap spots in front of the high school where there is now a large lawn. The plan will eliminate parking in the rear of the school and also eliminate 21 parking spaces on the north side of the high school drive, opening that area for the buses to drop students off at the front door of the high school. Board Member Jeff Oney of the building and grounds committee reported on the need for a half-time custodian. The position had been eliminated several years ago and at the February meeting custodian Herschel Honeycutt asked if it was possible to again fill that position.
