Fill-In for Suspended School Board Member

The Kentucky Board of Education has named a temporary replacement for suspended Bath County school board member Bill Boyd, but the decision is generating controversy. The state board on Wednesday selected Vearl Pennington to fill in during Boyd's state-ordered 90-day suspension, which will end in mid-December. Pennington, 72, previously served two full terms and part of another term on the Bath board and had served as its chairman.
