By a split vote, the Brazos- port Board of Education concurred In this recommendation by Supt. Kenneth Wilson. Trustee Jesse Hlbbetts dissented. ^ Bobby Peters, social studies teacher and assistant coach, decided late In August, it was reported, to accept an offer as an assistant coach at Howard Payne College. Teachers can be released from contract, Supt. Wilson said, if they ask before July 1. Otherwise, they are released only if a suitable replacement can be found. Despite an all-out effort, this could not be done, he said. Hibbetts noted a case last year where the iBoard took similar action when a drama teacher accepted a job at a Junior college. The Board then also passed a resolution suggesting that the state cancel Seafood firm loses $200 in burglary FREEPOKT - A burglar who apparently hid in Western Seafood Co. before closing time got away with about $200 in cash. The burglary was reported to police Tuesday. Police reported that about $200 in bills and change were taken from a cash box In a desk drawer. The burglar apparently managed to get himself locked in the building at closing time, police stated, and then made his exit through the attic and down through a restroom at the end of the building. Officers stated that a man was seen leaving the building afer closing time. This suspect is being sought, police reported. New deputy begins work A native of BrazoriaCounty began work Monday as a Sheriff's Dept. deputy. Donald O. Shanks, 29, of Route 2, Angleton, was born In Freeport, attended Central Elementary School in Angleton and graduated from Angleton High School. He Is married and has two children. Shanks was formerly employed in the County Engineers Dept. He will take on-the-job training In Brazosport, said Chief Deputy Jacque Wood. his teaching certificate. Board policy calls for reporting contract violations to the state. Hlbbetts, however, said he felt that "each Individual making a living has a responsibility to himself and his family," he said he "wouldn't want to hold a man back from obtaining a better job." If breaking a contract did not mean an advancement, lie would be for reporting to the state. But he felt Brazosport should "be proud of colleges coming to our school, and taking our people Into the college coaching ranks." Dr. Phillip Crciw disagreed. He felt that not to report the violation would be unfair to others who may be restrained from accepting outside offers in violation of their contracts. Trustee W. M. Weddell's feeling was that this wasn't a matter of punishment. "The purpose Is to play (air with other teachers who did honor their contracts, and did not take advantage of offers to advance." Three years ago, he said, a teacher turned down an offer to become a principal because it came In mid-July. After the vote, Board President Earl Little said he felt strongly about the matter, of honoring a contract. But also, he said, he intended to make an Issue of colleges taking teachers In violation of contracts, Including expressing his displeasure to the college president. "This doesn't happen much with high schools," he said, "but colleges don't seem bound by the same rules." He noted that his own Baptist church had made financial aid to Howard Payne. Those who wore contacted in an effort to replace Peters, Supt. Wilson said, wt-re told they could not be accepted unless they were released from their contracts.
